Plants vs Undead(PVU) seasons and weather event guide

Plants vs Undead (PVU) in farm mode has 4 different seasons and 25 different weather events that will affect our NFT plant’s productivity rate.

PVU seasons are Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Each season lasts for 7 days. Each new season starts every Sunday at 8:00 AM PH time. One full cycle of all seasons will take 28 days.

We are also tracking the daily weather events in case you want to see the historical data. (PVU Daily Weather)

Here is a table of seasons and weather events that you can save on your phone as your reference. This is the same table I used as a guide.

Weather events and effects on plants

How the weather cycle affects a plant’s productivity?

Here is the answer straight from the PVU Discord Channel FAQ section.

Weather Events increase/decrease the productivity of a plant only within the 24h that it is in effect. For example, if a plant produces 10000 LE/100 hour (an average of 100 LE/h) and an Event boosts its productivity by 30%, the plant’s productivity would be 130LE/h for 24h of that day only. After 24h, its productivity goes back to 100LE/h.

If a weather event occurs, it won’t happen again in the next 2 days. Example: If “Moonlight” happens on Monday, it won’t repeat until at least Thursday.

How to predict weather events in PVU:

Rules:

  • In order to predict the next day’s weather events, we bear in mind that weather events have a cooldown of 2 days. This means that one weather can’t occur twice in three days.
  • We also take note that each season only lasts for 7 days.

To illustrate properly how to predict the weather events the next day, let’s say I have the following information:

  • Plant type: Fire
  • Current season: Winter
  • Today’s weather event: Cold wave
  • Yesterday weather event: Snowy
Here are the steps to predict weather events:

1. Check the weather tracker table. Put a check on the last two days’ weather events. These two events will not be the weather event tomorrow.                                                                                                                                                 

2. Check your plant type. Since I have a fire plant, the only negative effect to my plant is when the weather event is a Winter storm which will lower my plant’s productivity by 40%.

3. Calculate the risk and decide. From the table, there are 8 events that can happen tomorrow. Only 1 of these events can harm my Fire plant which is the Winter Storm. From this, the probability of having a negative impact on my plant is 1/8 or 12.5%.

From the same table, 4 of these 8 events can boost my plant’s productivity. This means that the probability of success for tomorrow’s weather is 50%.

From this data, I am confident that I am not going to apply a Greenhouse to my Fire plant today. Remember that a Greenhouse will only negate all weather effects the following day you apply it to your plant.

Predicting weather events will only give us probabilities of success or failure. You have to make your own risk/reward threshold.

Also, you can’t use a greenhouse for two consecutive days.

Personally, I will only use a greenhouse if the probability of failure is more than 20%.

I hope PVU players find this weather guide helpful. Happy farming.
