Hi Pasha,

On the very first launch Holly, Ivy, and Countdown were missing.
Exit YoWindow and enter it again, they were no longer missing.

Naked landscape trees look very good now.
House interiors look good.

I have a suggestion for the Fruit Stand.
Late Summer and Autumn the harvest should be displayed the way you currently have it.
But in the Spring you need to display things that need to be planted.

Hey, Marty!
Thanks for the nice words :)
I wonder what kind of things are to be planted in spring? Like seeds?

Hi Pasha,

Spring Fruit Stand

You can grow tomatoes from seed.
But my parents would go to a greenhouse and buy small tomato plants for planting.

My parents would plant sweet corn from seed.

Packets of seeds.
Starter plants like tomato plants.

I hope these ideas help you.

Hey, Marty!
The problem with the seeds is that they are small.
It's almost impossible to distinguish anything smaller than an apple in YoWindow.

Hi Pasha,

Spring Fruit Stand

The melons and the pumpkin are Summer and Autumn.

I just looked at what is grown in California and what season.
Here are some fruits and vegetables that are harvested in the Spring.
Lemons
Oranges
Grapefruit
Lettuce
Kiwis
Carrots
Cauliflower
Beets
Asparagus
Broccoli

I would keep the bananas on the fruit stand as they are supplied by tropical regions.
In the Spring, display some of the above.

I hope this helps.

Marty

Hey, Marty!
We will do more additions to Americana over time including Ford Mustang and a chopper.
But right now the priority is to prepare Americana for the wide audience release.

I hope, we will adjust the fruit stand to the seasons changes as well.
Just need more time and work.
Thank you!
