To keep tickrate up (game speed), we are adding a new rule regarding autofarms.
Autofarms must be triggered manually, with a button, by a human player.
Not by chicken switches, BUD switches, crop timers, rail cart timers, daylight detectors, or what else you can think of. Not even by pressure plates or tripwires, for random people walking by.
So in short, fully automatic farms are no longer allowed.
Note that non-faction players can always press wooden buttons. This is allowed for farm harvesting. If you don't want that, use a stone button.
