I plan on continuing with my farm right now since I just had to restart like 2-3 months ago. I want to finally marry someone and finish the community center, get the greenhouse, etc. I spend so much time sometimes on the villager relationships I miss out on other stuff, so I want to do all of those things first :P.
I will play my fourth save, i was planning to start a brand new anyway, so I'm waiting for the update to play again from the very beginning. I hope there's a lot of new stuff all long the game, to be surprised every time in my new journey.
new farm baby! i like to see how the new update fits with the core of the game, going in with fresh eyes and a new start and knowing there is more late-game content just makes me excited to work for it
Whether I decide to restart or not depends, I think. On my current file, I'm only mid-way through Summer Y1. Ever since the announcement that 1.5 was coming out soon dropped, I vowed to not get too much further in the file until it's released. If any new starting choices mostly amount to a new farm map and the like, I'll probably stick with my current file, since I really like the forest farm. However, for example, if there's an option for the Farmer's birthday that can only be selected on the character creation screen, then I'll probably have to start over. I don't know how likely that would be, though. If that were to be a thing, there'd probably have to be some way to set the Farmer's birthday aside from the character creation screen.
