    ...make New Magincia plants account bound, rather than character bound?

    I like the fact that we can plant all around Magincia. I've had fun doing it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to remember which character planted what, so I have to check every plant with every character, usually. That gets annoying and is too time consuming.

    Also, why is it 4 days before you can plant another seed? Can that time be shortened, please?

    Thanks for reading and considering my request.

    I thought you could see who planted what by holding mouse over the plant and see the name of the char who planted.

    Yes, you can, but that means I have to mouse over each one with each of my seven characters, due to my faulty memory. Some of the plants have to be moused over in just the right spot. It's not that big of a deal, but I do have 48 plants that I tend to. It's just something that is annoying to me and I don't understand why my characters can't tend to my other character's plants.

    Would it help if you marked a rune next to each plant marked with the plant owner's name and then passed along the runes to your characters?

    You beat me in bringing this issue up.

    Having the plants account bound would make a big difference in tending the plants. One of the things I am going to do over time is eventually replace each plant, one at a time, with just one character. Like BlissMarie I am attempting to plant an area, not just plant a random flower here or there.

    Now that the initial rush to try out plants on New Magincia is over I'm seeing a lot of empty garden space and the areas looks pretty bleak. I haven't checked all shards yet but I'm guessing that it must be pretty much the same on all shards. I think maybe tweaking the system a bit might help improve the flora. Another idea in addition to BlissMaries would be to let an account have a block of plant spots. That way all those rectangles in the main garden will have some appearance of consistency. It has tended to look pretty messy and haphazard.

    I have to say I really like that we can plant in other areas around houses. I'm starting to take pride in the area I'm doing that's sorta near my house. Not as nice as BlissMaries. She rocks!

    Oh heck! I wish we could plant along foundations and I want an NPC Gardener to tend my plants too! *speaks in a Steve Martin voice* Thats all I need... more plant blocks, plants along the foundation and a NPC Gardener. Oh and that bench. That's all I need... more plant blocks, plants along the foundation and a...

    Thanks Devs, for all your hard work.
