Cozy Aussie farming sim Dinkum has received a brand new update, and since it's autumn (or fall if you're in the US) right now in Australia, that's exactly what you're getting in the update too.

Like last November's summer update, you can expect a bunch of seasonal changes, including golden and orange leaves on trees, as well as a brand new weather event.

Dinkum's autumn update also introduces mushrooms that sprout up from the ground around you, and if you harvest them, you'll be able to use them to make brand new recipes and crafting items.

The new Dinkum update isn't just bringing weather changes.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Dinkum update without some much-needed quality-of-life changes. First and foremost, the new Hand Trolley item is available at John's shop, and you can use it to lug containers around without emptying them first.

If you've obtained a level 3 building license, you'll now be able to create Advanced Crafting Tables, which will draw ingredients from nearby storage chests so you don't have to painstakingly take them out yourself.

Additionally, Bendon says Franklyn "now offers a new contraption" that should make sorting your inventory easier, but you'll need to "give him a shiny disc" to access this ability. Bendon says he wants to leave the mechanics of this exchange as a surprise.

A new Wish Fountain feature has also been introduced, and it brings a number of modifiers you can use to make your island "behave" differently. For instance, you can stop animals from attacking you first, or if you're the warrior sort, you can make them even more dangerous, increasing their loot drops.

Dinkum is available right now on PC via Steam Early Access. You can check out our preview of the game here if you want to know whether this down under farming sim is your kettle of fish.
