Actually a good point. Shame on me for not thinking of it. (Maybe it'll prod jorbtar into getting on it sooner.)

Things that need to be changed about snow!

- Heat sources such as kilns/ovens/fires should melt snow in a radius around them while lit.
- Snow should not fall under unmovable objects or even moveable objects. IF it has a hitbox it shouldn't have snow under it.
- Area snow remover that drags across like farmer - Stop relying on custom clients for basic QoL functions.
- Snow on concrete or pavement should melt faster than non paved ground.
- Would be cool if snow disappeared faster if there is more foot traffic on the tile. Little natural made paths where a player or even animals walk.
- snow should fall quicker. Snow does not sprinkle down over multiple days. You can fall asleep with zero snow on the ground and wake up the next morning to a blanket of white as far as you can see. Its also an eye sore
- Snow shouldn't show up on minimap or there should be an option to disable it. Snow should definitely not be saved to your map!

"Clear snow" via some means.

Subject title changed. Let's not turn this into a super thread of all the different ideas on how snow should and shouldn't behave. Those ideas have threads for the most part. The request to "clear snow" with some mechanic, be it a mass dig area like with harvest, an extra use of the landscaping tool, etc, are what this is stickied for. Thanks.

Snow should melt faster as well. The transition phases are utterly horrific for navigation.

Yep. The last 2 days of winter and first 2 days of spring are more likely to make me log out than all of winter

This keeps getting suggested over and over. Must be something super interesting for the playerbase to keep bringing it up.

WHY hasn't this been addressed yet? Winter would be the best time to do terraforming work, since many other jobs are "unavailable"... but snow makes it way more annoying and time consuming than it already is. PLs fix
