New arrival's questions

First of all, thank you from the bottom of my heart to everybody who has been so helpful with pointers, resources, and tips to my start in the last few days. Some questions I have garnered so far include the following:

Sometimes, I find that I am frozen to the spot for no observable reason, and besides turning I cannot move at all. The only way I can unfreeze myself is my logging out and in. Does anyone know the reason for this?

Other times, when I am going in one direction and I change directions, I find that I keep going in the same original direction and I cannot change directions. What might be the reason for this?

I noticed a game feature that I personally love. This feature is seasonal effects like crops not being able to grow during winter. Might there be other seasonal effects such as certain crops only growing during spring or certain wild herbs only blooming during fall?

Thanks for reading!

Sometimes that happens to me when I switch out of the game while walking, is this the case?

Why yes :D
Herbs have growing seasons, I think crops do too, and I know they have certain zones they grow in as well.

Yes sometimes if you're walking a direction and you change window focus and back again the character will keep going in that direction.

The best way I found to solve it is to hold shift (shift + direct = look) and look in ALL 4 directions.

He usually stops after that and you can control him freely.

Easier solution: Press once the key of the direction your char is walking and he'll be under your control ;)
