Misc info

Energy and daytime management

Throughout your run, you want to pay attention to the life, fatigue, hunger and water addresses. If your life reaches 0, it's gameover. Pick up nearby berries and other food to keep those values high. You can also make use of the sleeping/resting options when in a shelter. You can sleep/rest/rest enough or even rest twice (which is faster than sleeping once).
On some days, there is rain which makes you stop for 10 seconds to tell that you need an umbrella leaf. So you should avoid those days or bring an umbrella leaf with you.

Keep grasses cut

When cutting grass and then re-entering the area, there is an "every other frame" chance that the grass will have grown again. By making sure to re-enter on a good frame, you can keep grasses cut.

Trigger Skip

This is a good timesaver in speedruns.

Text glitch

At the beginning of the game, there is a trigger where the player will talk a bit and then enter the hut and talk some more. The dialogue in the hut is based on the text pointer that has been set at the trigger. You can use the Trigger Skip to bypass the trigger and perform a certain action to display different text (i.e. set the text pointer to something else) and then manually enter the hut to make the game run different text. In some cases, it will glitch out completely or crash.
The listed effects below are based on what action you performed before entering the hut.
