I congratulate you. I, too, use my vintage Mac setup for creative purposes and just recently transferred my business docs to it as well.
That is tried & proven software that was written by engineers that knew how to optimize code. So I hope you'll keep having lots of fun with it in the future. Laughing out loud

one quick question i have is that was there any garden planning software for fruits and vegetables (apples hmm) for the 68k macintosh i am probably going to take a trade schools class on that to get somne of my high school credits as we have as a special building for people who want to get there hands wet witha bunch of stuff/techniques they might use in a job someday called EdTech such as another one i am taking for IT technologys as well as one on computer hardware we spend half of the day there and if we miss credits we can make them up there how great is that oh and P.S i have a Economics teacher named mr wozinzki next semester who used to host a bunch of vintage apple computers in his classroom until strudents got too distracted by them sadly enough i never got to see his computer collection irl accept for a school poster in the janitors office that showed a school club he hosted back in 2012

i am talking about a application not a game one that can tell you how long a certain plant is supposed to grow in real life and help you plan an actual garden

Well, I would call that more of a simulation, than a pure game. But I think what you are looking for would be more of an Encyclopedia and the only place where I have ever seen that for plants on 68k would be Hyperstacks. There is a *gigantic* amount of those available on the Internet - with new ones being developed even today.
But these are almost all non-commercial and there is no organized repository available for them. May I suggest you try to search the Internet Archive for a plant/gardening encyclopedia or a Hyperstack app that deals with that topic? It's how I found my most favored HS collection.

That's weird. It sounds almost as if the mouse input remained in the buffer, could not processed, but kept accumulating, and by the time it all got processed, it went all at once, causing the "fastness".

Why is that happening? I dunno, but if my guess is right, then it would likely mean a software-side issue only. So, system issue, like too many background tasks? What system are you on, by the way? Do you know what programs were being executed?

As for potential hardware issues, I'm not sure if any would provoke such a symptom.

A PowerBook 165 with 4MB of RAM a 33mhz no FPU 68030 and i use Photoshop 1.0 clarisworks 1.1 excel 4.0 and sometimes play a small mid to late 80's game or two but i only use each app when the other apps are closed hence why i need to figure out how to get more ram using a program (don't have money right now to get another ram chip as i don't have a job due to my age)

See if this problem persists when you reboot with Extensions disabled (by holding Shift).
