You can enter the settings menu in every moment of the game. To do so, press the [ESC] key. The most important options are listed below:
Timescale - One of the most important setting. Here, you change the speed of time in the game. The minimal value is 1x. It means that one minute in the game equals one minute in real time. The highest available speed is 120x. On this setting, twenty four hours in game time equals 12 minutes in real time. It is good to use higher speed, especially when you do not have much to do and you're waiting for the plants to grow. 30x is an optimal value. Timescale can be switched by using  and  hotkeys.
Mission frequency - Here, you set the period (in real time) after which a new mission will appear. You can activate the missions through the job board.
Plant growth - here you can increase or reduce the speed of plant growth.
Plant withering - you can switch off the withering of plants that were not harvested for a long time.
Other important settings are connected to the notifications that appear in various places on the map and to the markings on it.
