Hi There,

We just released a new version of FarmTown which contains:

1. 5 new crops (muchrooms, bell pepper, sweet potato, artichoke, soybeans)

2. Bamboo tree

3. Easter Items

4. The "Produce Faster" button located on the "What's cooking" tab on each facility is already working, so your friends can help your facility to produce faster. This is how it works:

- You click on the "Produce Faster" button and post a request to your friends wall asking for help

- When a friend click on the post link or image and goes to your farm to work on your facilities, they can complete up to 20% of the production you have pending on all the facilities

- You also get +3 XP for each product type they work on

- The Major compensates your friend with some goods as well (those are taken from the Major reserve, they are not deducted from your prodution)

- Your friend also receive 3XP for each product type they work on

- Once a friend navigates to your farm using the link/image on the post, they can work on any facility you have on any of your farms.

- Once a friend work in your farm, he/she can not work again until next day.

New cool facilities almost ready!

Thanks,

--Raul

Thank you, Raul.... The new additions of the last and this upgrade are fantastic.

Glitch in the PRODUCE FASTER window. Once you select people to send the request to you can't save the list or click on PUBLISH! Save is stuck inside the other window and publish is behind the window. I can't send this request to over 160 people! HELP!!!

Thanks so much Raul.

We are working on a thread for everyone showing the new items and explaining the procedures for gifting the new Easter items as it is slightly different than previous gifting processes.

Thank you for the new stuff I can't wait to plant the new crops. I also like the Easter stuff and can't with to decorate my farm with them. I can't wait to see what new facilities you have in store for us. I hope we get new flowers soon we have not had new flowers since July of last year. In your next release of crops how about a crop worth more then pineapples it has been the top dog long enough something needs to out do it.

Appreciate new stuff and the produce faster sounds very cool. However, unless i have missed something, the new crops are ****. Worth less than anything else so far.

You have a right to your own opinion but new crops are never **** in my opinion. Would I like something that is worth more the pineapples yes but not all crops can be worth more then pineapples. Also do you want crops that are only long term crops added to the game? I don't I want a mix added to the game so that means that some of the new corps will not be high priced crops but they will be short term corps. There has to be a balance in what is added to the game. Well that is just my opinion on the matter. Also if you look at the hourly net of the crops raspberries is your biggest money maker not pineapples.

Actually, it looks to me like artichokes and soybeans are an improvement over the previous best 4 and 12 hour crops. That's good news for those of us that plant primarily shorter term crops.

A quick glance at the other crops and I'd say they might not be the biggest payday but the profitability looks pretty good. Plus, we don't know what kind of new facilities are in the works and if these crops may become important in the future.

I posted a request for people to help me at my facilities and wall post says this "The Major will compensate you with 20% of all the goods completed. You will receive 3 XP for each product type that you work on." I think there is a misspelling in there. Shouldn't that say Mayor not Major? Here is a screen cap.

I click on produce faster, the request comes up to post to wall, but it won't let me publish.

I had the same problem this morning. I had to click on PRODUCE FASTER about six times before the publish button would work.

But.. To the developers. We have the option to send this request to a specified list of people. I cannot send it to all 160 of my friends. They'd kill me. When I choose the specific list and put in the names the SAVE button is below where I can get to it and the PUBLISH button is behind this window. As a result I cannot post this on my wall or my neighbors walls. It would be great if we had the option of sending it to FT neighbors only instead of either everyone or having to type each name.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Your friends who don't want to see this can click to hide the application. That is what I did with FarmVille so their posts do not show up on my wall. This can be done with any game application. If you are worried, there is a message place when you publish where you can explain this to them.:)

I understand that but people who don't play games get irritated and I don't want to knowingly irritate well over 150 people, some of who aren't friends but business associates! The option is there to send it to the people we're neighbors with. I just hope they fix it so I can use it.

Way cool with the new updates.... Only problem I have is that since Yesterday It takes literally hours for me to load FT. seems with all the new working additions like the plants It has made Farm Town huge... And too much for a dial up connection.. I only play Farm Town because of this happening with other applications. I am on my fifth time Clearing Cache rebooting and attempting to load it is almost 11am and have been doing this 9 am... Think I am finally booted out of Farm Town for good...... waaaaaaa... Yes I went to the loading trouble main thread and did what it said I have had to do that delete that particular folder a few times since playing this game... Generally with updates I have to do that. Yes my Flash is the latest, I removed flash yesterday and did a reinstall.... any new ideas would be appreciated.. I have 84 MB HD , available 512 MB Ram.so it is not that... I have a Pentium 4 processor. 2.79 ghz . I design web sites for a living. And have no troubles uploading.... so I have a well performing PC....

Raul, the soybeans should of been a 3 day crop and soybeans have to be sprayed with Roundup to kill them so they can be harvested be for it freezes.. Just some fyi from a real life farmer....

Mar 27 2010, 11:53 AM
Thank you for the new crops! Can't wait to see what they look like! I don't really care if the new stuff makes less coins than what we already have, it's nice to have some more variety! I'm also looking forward to more facilities to make greater use of the crops and trees.

Mar 27 2010, 12:03 PM
I clicked on the button to make the facilities run faster and got quite a surprise. My only option was to publish to my wall. I can never use this option because I have many friends who do not and do not want to play FT. Besides I would seem to be a total idiot by posting this on my wall.

We need to have the option for specific neighbors as we do in gifting. If left as is I don't think many people are going to use it.

I know this is a ploy to get everybody's friends to sign up for FT because if they don't sign up for FT then they cannot help. This effort to get more people to sign up for FT is not very subtle. Sort of like using a hammer to kill an ant. Rethink this guys.............make it so that we can pick out our FT friends and leave the rest alone.

Thank you for your patience.

First of all, thank you very much for the new crops and bamboo trees - love them! Still waiting for lilacs, though (please?).

Regarding the issue of posting requests to our Facebook pages, I completely agree with those who are not willing to do that. I started playing Farmville just recently (mostly just to see what it's like, nowhere near as good as FT) and I HATE it that more than half of my news feed now is posts about FV, I'm about ready to hide that app myself. And I always say no when it asks if I want to post something. Out of all my FB friends the farmers are a small group, and I don't want to clutter up my other friends' pages with farming requests. So PLEASE don't start shifting things in that direction.

SueHacker
Mar 27 2010, 12:16 PM
I second that! Just want to send it to my FT friends. Please!

I also agree and even better would be to be able to just help with the facilites when you visit your neighbors farms, which I do everyday. I am standing right there watering or raking and I cannot help with the processing. Instead I must try to track down their facebook page and look for a help request?

SunnyD
Mar 27 2010, 12:17 PM
uh darlin, think it could be your dial up connection???

yup I believe it is no longer available for some Dial up users that is why I said this hon....(It takes literally hours for me to load FT. seems with all the new working additions like the plants It has made Farm Town huge... And too much for a dial up connection..) afraid FT is gone gone for some of us on dial up.. I have a really big great dial up server it is not one of the mom and pop types... so I do believe that with the new additions Farm Town is gone bye bye; for me any ways... probably not all dial up users......

Please reconsider and find a way that just our FT friends can help, maybe when they come to our farm to rake, water flowers etc or by some "private invitation" system. Until you can do something like that I will have to rely on my own energies to process things ;-)

But I'm not complaining - I love the new update and am pleased to have some new crops to try out. Thanks for giving us something new at 1 and 2 days as that's what I like to plant most often!

By the way, any chance of a third farm? Please??? I want to get some of the new facilities but I love my two farms and don't want to have to dismantle what I've created so carefully.

Wheat is already outdoing the Pineapples since you get 600 coins by using the Wheat Mill to make flour.

Plus, you only have to pay 80 coins for each square of wheat rather than 300 coins each square for pineapples.:)

I forgot to thank the devs for their constant help and for giving us new things to play with. However, to be technically correct there is no such thing as a stand-alone bamboo tree. In my real life backyard I have been trying for many years to kill a stand of bamboo. It reproduces like a herd of rabbits. So if we are to have a "bamboo tree" it needs to be planted in a pot and not in the ground as if it were a productive attractive tree.

Yay my ISP has an Accelerator for my dial up connection...Downloading that now... That will be so helpful... I have been to the gift page and there are no new gifts.... Is that due to my FT server not having posted them yet? Just curious......If there will be some.. I do see in the store that most of the Easter stuff can be requested that is way cool..... FT is the best.....

When we logged on to WF-40 this morning, my farmer friend found crops growing on her fields that she did not plant. My two farms are as I planted them.

Thanks for the new crops.

I'd really like the "Hire workers for production facilities" process to allow us to choose whether the request goes to Farm Town friends, or the Facebook world at large.

Thank you for your patience.

Well first of all, Myspace ppl dont have a stinking wall, and most of my friends on ms dont allow streams from apps either.
That is/will be totally worthless.
We need to have it set up for our neighbors of our own chosing.
We should be able to either simply have the facilties move faster or hire a neighbor of our choseing to harvest the facility.

Also: the faster button doesnt even work on ms. i get a black loading box for sending request, but it never loads. This goes on untill the game server times out.

If you want to improve something, improve the server! It's now taking 10 years just to load a farm.
Theres not even any point in working for someone anymore, because youre certainly gonna get timed out.
Even planting on your own farm makes the server lag.
The game is too popular for its own good.
No need to improve a game with updates if the game cant be played................

use Roundup Pro, if you can still get it......

It thinks Roundup is fertilizer. I have a BIG backyard and the little shoots are beginning to rear their little heads. I dig those up. For the ones that grow successfully in the original bed I use a chain saw to cut them off at the ground and pour diesel fuel in the open cavity to the root.

This was originally posted in the Feedback and Suggestions forum, but it's worth repeating over here..

Just a gentle reminder here that Farm Town is an international game, played by people of all races and religions.
Whilst we appreciate all suggestions for holiday decorations, we would ask that members' posts steer clear of religious opinion or debate.
Our aim is to keep the forum a friendly and welcoming place for ALL users, so any posts deemed to be not following these guidelines may be edited or deleted without notice.
Many thanks for your understanding in this. :)

We do have an option to select only certain people. It's next to the PUBLISH button where the down arrow is. Unfortunately, it's not working properly. When you type in the list of names the SAVE button to save the list is hidden below inside the first window. The PUBLISH button is also hidden behind the second window. I'm sure this will eventually be fixed but until then we'll just have to use the slower processing.

I've been asking for a variety of pots & would like to be able to pot bamboo too. Wiould also like taller "stands" of bamboo to use as divider for garden/meditation area...like bamboo screen. None of the fences really look right.

Also ?patiently? waiting for another farm. would like to set up a production one as first & second are full!

I had the same problem this morning. I had to click on PRODUCE FASTER about six times before the publish button would work.

But.. To the developers. We have the option to send this request to a specified list of people. I cannot send it to all 160 of my friends. They'd kill me. When I choose the specific list and put in the names the SAVE button is below where I can get to it and the PUBLISH button is behind this window. As a result I cannot post this on my wall or my neighbors walls. It would be great if we had the option of sending it to FT neighbors only instead of either everyone or having to type each name.

Is anyone else having this problem?

When you have this problem just hit your tab key until it gets the save button to come up then you can click on save.

I understand that but people who don't play games get irritated and I don't want to knowingly irritate well over 150 people, some of who aren't friends but business associates! The option is there to send it to the people we're neighbors with. I just hope they fix it so I can use it.

What the other person is trying to tell you is that if a person doesn't want to see wall posts from apps they can hover over the post on their news feeds and a hide button will come up. Now they click on hide and another options comes up you have a choice to hide wall post from that app or hide wall post from that person. If they choose hide the app they will still see wall post from that person but they will not see any wall post from that app no matter who post something from that app. I can understand that if you don't play a game you don't want to see 50 million post about it, so just hide the app and you wont see them. I have lots of apps hidden.

What the other person is trying to tell you is that if a person doesn't want to see wall posts from apps they can hover over the post on their news feeds and a hide button will come up. Now they click on hide and another options comes up you have a choice to hide wall post from that app or hide wall post from that person. If they choose hide the app they will still see wall post from that person but they will not see any wall post from that app no matter who post something from that app. I can understand that if you don't play a game you don't want to see 50 million post about it, so just hide the app and you wont see them. I have lots of apps hidden.

I understand and do that myself but people still get irate when they see the game information on their walls. There is even a group people have joined that says they don't want to know about your mafia, your farm or your fish!

I feel it is my responsibility not to spam their walls with information they don't want.

There is even a group people have joined that says they don't want to know about your mafia, your farm or your fish! I've even heard of many people who delete friends if they display game information on their walls. It's a bigger issue than some people are aware of.

I did finally figure out that the tab key would work but that doesn't work either. Sure, I can see the SAVE button and click on it but it doesn't actually save your list. You'd have to type every name every day when you want to send the message.

I feel it is MY responsibility not to spam all the walls with information they don't want. The system needs to have the ability to save our customized lists like it says it will.

I agree with you Janisko. I have friends that don't play any games and a few that have even joined that group you mentioned. And, I have some work related friends that I don't want to share my silliness (additions?) with.

On the publish screen, you can change the privacy settings and choose to only send to specific people. You can list each person, or, what I did was create a list of just my Farmtown friends by clicking on the account settings and going to "edit friends". On the friends list, I used the "create a new list" and chose the friends that play the game with me. Now, when I go to publish, I change the privacy settings to "certain people" and choose my FarmTown Friends list....then I click on publish. That way my request appears on ONLY my FarmTown friends that are interested and share my love of the game.

Don't know if that's something you'd like to try, but it's another way around spamming everyone with our fun.

Oooops.....sorry....saw you posted before I could. :o

As for people getting irate when they see the game information tell them to hide the app. I think this is a new FB feature so a lot of people may not know about it so just tell them how to hide the app, if they get mad at you later because you are "spamming" their news feeds tell them to either deal with it or hide or block the app. If you block the app it also hides the wall posts for that app for you. Now in the past I could understand people getting upset by all the posts from games they don't play but now they can get rid of them and if they choose not to then it is their problem not yours, in my opinion.

As for having to put each persons name in every time you will have to do that to block some people from seeing some of you wall post but not all of them, but here is an easier way to do it. Create a list of some of your friends name it anything you want. You can have as many lists as you want for the different apps or what ever. Now when you go to post something on your wall that you want to block from some people click on customize then click on specific people, now type in the name you gave that list of people and click on it when it comes up. Now click on save and post and you are done only the people in that list will see the wall post.

I second that! Just want to send it to my FT friends. Please!

Yes, please - one of the reasons I won't play Farmville is the constant requests for help to build a barn, etc. - hiding the FV app doesn't help. Could the request for help be sent as a message instead? Many of my neighbors are not playing any more, and I don't want to appear as a nag.

Other than this one thing, the updates are fine - love the new seeds!

OK, I've made my Farmtown Friends list, but would still rather be able to send the request as a message, rather than post to friends' walls.

The Easter items are not showing up in the gifts I can give to my friends.....any suggestions as to why?

Your friend has to:
1/ go to the store
2/ go to easter tab
3/ click the little gift box on the item he/she wants, and then

4/ Post the request

Then you can send it via the link in the post. You can get gifts this way too!

THANK YOU... THANK YOU... THANK YOU... I figured it out! The problem was that it takes time for the applications to recognize the lists. It took quite awhile but it FINALLY recognizes my FT Friends list now.

I think I also finally understand the frustrations people are having when they don't understand how the new facilities and sheds operate. This is my first real frustration with FT.

Thank you again and to the developers who have created such a fun experience for all of us.

A huge thank you to all who posted about using a list of FB friends when making a FT post. I did have trouble with the Save Setting button disappearing after I had clicked on Specific People, but then I remembered that you said using the tab key worked, and sure enough it did. So now I can request Easter gifts without all my non-farmer friends seeing that - thank you again!

I don't have any facilities yet, but it does seem silly to me that a person needs to post a request for help with those, instead of a neighbor just being able to go to the farm and help out unsolicited. Too complicated by far.

And it would be nice to send FT requests directly through the FT message system rather than through FB.

thank you, raul.... The new additions of the last and this upgrade are fantastic.

Glitch in the produce faster window. Once you select people to send the request to you can't save the list or click on publish! Save is stuck inside the other window and publish is behind the window. I can't send this request to over 160 people! Help!!!

don't know if this will work for you. When we have that problem we hold the mouse click down and drag rapidly through the bottom border and the window expands. The only way we have been able to make this work. We have to do it every time if we change the publish to criteria from everybody.

I can't wait to see what new facilities you have in store for us. I hope we get new flowers soon we have not had new flowers since July of last year. In your next release of crops how about a crop worth more then pineapples it has been the top dog long enough something needs to out do it.



Actually in terms of profit per field, rosemary is actually top dog.

Dragging the left-clicked mouse was the first thing I tried. It didn't work for me and like a dummy I figured it "might" work on the 10th try. LOL! The tab works just fine for me, though. I found that making up a special FT Friends list in the FRIENDS tab of FB works far better.

I did notice that if you are going to use a FT Friends list that you have to click on CUSTOM (at the lock) and then the specific list and then finally on SAVE each time. The system appears to default back to FRIENDS.

You can have all your wall post only show up for some people on your friends list. This can be helpful when you add people for apps that you do not know but you add them for neighbors in a game. You can put them in a list and restrict what they can see about you including your wall post. You can set it up where they see no wall post from you at all. This is a one time thing and effects all your wall posts. You do this through privacy settings. I can tell you exactly how if you like just pm me. What you are doing when you hide an app post form some people is only hiding that wall post not all your wall posts. Your default setting is either they see all you post or none of your posts. You can keep them from seeing some of your post but you have to edit that post to not show to them.

This looks like a pure numbers game to me and appears to be unreliable as well as unfair to compare something that takes three days ( 60 hours ) to mature with something that takes 2 hours. What happens to the harvest and plow time not to mention the difference in plowing cost dependind upon self harvesting, Marketplace hire and having a neighbour plow for you?

How many 12 hours crops can you do in one day? The answer is 1. Start the clock ticking from end of planting, end of plowing or end of harvest and the thing is, you can only get one 12 hour crop in any given day.

So realistically, how many raspberried crops can you do in one day? How many beets or artichokes?

Just saying, I would like a common way to compare because per hour makes little sense to me.

Kind of like the banks. is it Interest Rate or APY. Even in this case, you need to know how the bank compounds if you are going to use the APY.... kinda like how many crops in a day. Might be better to compare over a certain period of time. Like for trees, it is only fair to compare over 60 days... because we 2, 3, 4 and 5 days to a mature tree.

Ok, I feel better not to mention I will be sleeping tonight so I guess I need to select between an 8 hour and 12 hour crop. Hmmm do I want to sleep in or will I really get up to harvest in 8 hours?????

Soybeans (and now I can plant them, YAY!)

I forgot to thank the devs for their constant help and for giving us new things to play with. However, to be technically correct there is no such thing as a stand-alone bamboo tree. In my real life backyard I have been trying for many years to kill a stand of bamboo. It reproduces like a herd of rabbits. So if we are to have a "bamboo tree" it needs to be planted in a pot and not in the ground as if it were a productive attractive tree.

I also like and appreciate the new udpates but if I remember my high school biology right mushrooms aren't grown with seeds.They are grown from spores.

If you hire someone to harvest them (which gets you the most coins) there is not much difference in the profit.
Rosemary cost 200 hire harvest sell price 517 plowing cost 20 profit of 297
pineapples cost 300 hire harvest sell price 614 plowing cost 20 profit 294

now x that extra 3 coins to 1,000 plots= bigger profit.not really got the time to work it out,but it is better than pineapples.
duh....... silly me its 3,ooo coin profit per 1,000 plots of rosemary over pineapples.now add another 3 days produce and again and so on.it does make a alot of difference over time.

Where to i find these tabs?
Hi There,

We just released a new version of FarmTown which contains:

1. 5 new crops (muchrooms, bell pepper, sweet potato, artichoke, soybeans)

2. Bamboo tree

3. Easter Items

4. The "Produce Faster" button located on the "What's cooking" tab on each facility is already working, so your friends can help your facility to produce faster. This is how it works:

- You click on the "Produce Faster" button and post a request to your friends wall asking for help

- When a friend click on the post link or image and goes to your farm to work on your facilities, they can complete up to 20% of the production you have pending on all the facilities

- You also get +3 XP for each product type they work on

- The Major compensates your friend with some goods as well (those are taken from the Major reserve, they are not deducted from your prodution)

- Your friend also receive 3XP for each product type they work on

- Once a friend navigates to your farm using the link/image on the post, they can work on any facility you have on any of your farms.

- Once a friend work in your farm, he/she can not work again until next day.

New cool facilities almost ready!

Thanks,

--Raul

I am also not a fan of the post to wall to hire friends to help in facilities. I dislike app notices on my news feed and block nearly every one I see- INCLUDING farm town. That's right. as a long time farm town player, I have the app blocked from my feed. Which means I either have to allow my news feed to become cluttered with my neighbors other farm town postings, or not use this new feature. At this point, its going to be the latter.

I appreciate that this is a way you are trying to spread the word of farm town, but I would rather tell my friends face to face rather than spamming their news feed. At the moment I posted a request to my wall and only "allowed" one other farm town friend to see it. I likely will not repeat this because I don't like seeing it on my profile.

I'll just let production go on at its usual pace not use this feature.

have you been purchasing them in order. you have to buy them smallest to largest because everytime you unlock a smaller one a bigger one unlocks. not sure if that is the issue you are having but if you add more details im sure you can get better assistance such as what happens when you go to the realitor what pops up also manually linking will help to so that your farm can be checked out to see what the last upgrade you got was

I am unlocking in order. I was able to unlock the first one, but the second one, nor any of the others are able to be unlocked.

It is very frustrating! I've been playing this game over a year, and know how to do it fairly well, if not better than that.

I even had a friend go into my account, and the land is LOCKED!

A tip on moving facilities from one farm to another... don't do it while it is in production. I lost 720 pending in my sugar refinery when I moved it from 1 to 2.
Not a biggy, I was half expecting that to happen lol just be aware :)
Enjoying the new facilities, seeds. Thanks devs.

link your farm into your signature or post and maybe one of the players or a moderater can check out your farm and help you that way.

i know my questions seem simple but allot of the times its the issue and with out the link its hard to check into... did you purchase the first one you have to purchase the first, then the seconds and so on.

200 units of Wheat would take 80 hours to process, in real time but a Farm Town day is roughly 20 hours long...does the 2 hour/5 units purport to be real time, or can I adjust to Farm Town time when estimating?

I had a real bad glitch in my Farm Town game it took me weeks to find it. Turns out it was
Firefox and it made most of the things in the game invisible like the tools, chat, half of the brown area that has the storage map etc, plus the little boxes for the second farm went along with the envelope for messages. To make a long story short after fixing the problem and returning to the game I found that my level 60 was now 79 and the white area in the bar moved over an inch can anyone tell me what happened and did the game designers change the level limits?

Friends or neighbors must take the time to view your FB page which is where the help request is then click on the job request which takes you to their farm which is where you are told that work is available and do you want to go there and then finally you are there.

i won't play your "produce faster" application until you get the dialog box to permit me to send it to just farmtown friends. i don't want to publish this to all my friends. the "customize" box sits inside of the publish box and doesn't allow us to close the dialog box to limit the friends who see the post. you need to fix this right away, it's just one more annoying thing about FT.

I have to tell you I am thrilled with the new way they are doing the Easter gifts.

This way I don't get a bunch of **** I don't want and if my neighbors really want something all they have to do is request it and I will happily send it to them.

Big thumbs up from me.

Actually, they shouldn't have to go to your FB page to see the request. When you post it, it will show on the page of all the friends you send the request to.

This is a Facebook problem, not a Farm Town problem. And, I believe there were instructions earlier in this thread on how to work around this problem. Personally, I am able to click on the button even though I can only see a sliver of it.

Okay two things the first one help with the getting to the save button. If you can't see the save button hit your tab key until you do see it. Second if you haven't already done so put your FT friends in a facebook friend list that way when you go to customize all you need to do is type in the name you gave that list and the only people that will see that wall post will be people on that list.

ok dumb question........ do you go ahead and send all your goods such as cows milk, or goats milk into the production state.. where it is already cooking, then invite your friends to help that produce faster? or do you first call on your friends to come help?? kind of confused here.....

SunnyD
Mar 29 2010, 02:26 AM
found the answer myself Duh Me!!

4. The "Produce Faster" button located on the "What's cooking" tab on each facility is already working, so your friends can help your facility to produce faster. This is how it works:

- You click on the "Produce Faster" button and post a request to your friends wall asking for help

- When a friend click on the post link or image and goes to your farm to work on your facilities, they can complete up to 20% of the production you have pending on all the facilities

so it is the items you have already sent into production that they help with...... got it..

your friends have to request them as gifts. one they request and item you can send it to them threw that request... to request a item for easter go to the store and then you click on the gift box on the item you want and it will post it..


i love that is being done this way so thay im not bombarded with pointless gifts i wont. i requested the 2 items i wanted got them and deleted the post. my neighbors know im a fuel kinda girl and preffer it all the time

I love the new Easter stuff, but......why are some things locked out until you get to a certain level? This should not be on holidays or special events......because here's why. For Easter I would like to have the Easter Bunny Family, the Egg Tree and the Bunny with Wheelbarrow but there are locked until level 70,80, and 75. I am at level 38 and Easter is 5 days away. There is no way I can advance in order to purchase these items. It's like those of us who are at the back of the line are being punished. I just don't understand the locked out method, ok, it's something to strive for but not on special occassions. Everyone should be able to purchase ALL the items. Ho Hum, oh well, back to my farm which I love dearly. I just needed to vent.

Still not working on myspace also planted sugarcane yesterday and when I came back today there were cabbages there! How is that possible? I thought I made a mistake but after checking (I write everything down since I have 3 farms 2 on FB and 1 on Myspace) there should have been sugarcane, well never mind at least I get my harvest!

Are there still problems on MySpace? Love to know for then I understand what is happening.

Instead of publishing to my general wall, I'd like to just invite specific friends to work in my facilities, sort of like giving gifts to specific people.

The reason is that I absolutely HATE all the (insert name of other farming game here) SPAM that I get, and I refuse to do that to my friends. If I could invite specific ones that I know are interested, it'd be much better.

I click on produce faster, the request comes up to post to wall, but it won't let me publish.

If you don't want junk from games you don't participate in, block that game in your profile settings. If i am trying to gift a certain person to work on my farm i publish the announcement and let them know on FB chat to come to my farm.... best way i think......

I saw again today a request for a gift on my home page in FarmTown which had a direct link to Farmtown and the requester. I too have requests, but do not know how to do it in a way that links to the site. I would prefer to request things in this way so as not to annoy my non FT playing friends. If they are not playing they are not very interested in all the FT related posting cluttering their home pages.

also any item you have on your farm such as a "Cow' that is on the gift page you just click on that item and you get a menu that says 'request as gift' then you get the pop up to send the request for that gift.. also any item you have in your gift box you can request more of......... it posts to your FB wall

Many thanks for all the new crops and Easter stuff. I really like the mushrooms, very cool!
But, I would really have liked to send my friends some Easter gifts, but this isn't possible. So sad! I don't really want them all for myself.Actually, all the gifts need updating, as when I ask my FT friends what they want, they all say 'nothing, so just send fuel'. Very boring.
On another note, I started a new farm and placed an island in the middle, where I have been trying to keep my animals, but no matter what I do, they keep escaping, especially the chickens, who seem to get a great deal of pleasure from making me run around after them!

It is possible to send Easter gifts. Your friends have to request them. There is a little red box (on most Easter gifts) to the right of the item which they click and it sends it to their wall where you can click and send it.
There can be no gaps or the animals will escape. I don't know what you made an island out of, but you can fence them in.

Also, I am going to have to do some rearranging to fit it in. It is kind of big. Want to know if I really want to.

So the devs can make some money. Just don't buy it, or you can do the Facebook app of the day (you don't need to download anything) until you have enough to purchase it with cash.

I am passing on the pizza place, but don't blame the devs one bit for asking for cash for some items. What we can purchase with Farm Coins is way more than in "the other farm game".

I agree. I have plenty of farmcash from leveling up and doing the application for the day. Can't believe how easy it is to download the application and get the 2 farmcash. Never had a problem with it. They even made the farmcash retroactive when it came out. I prefer to save my farmcash, but have plenty and will use it to buy it IF I see it is something I really want. Waiting to see if they let us know which fruits it takes, etc.

LOVE THE NEW STUFF! I was a bit bummed about the the cash thing for the juice..BUT I had been saving my FC for something worthwhile, so I spent it on this. It uses pineapples, grapes, apples, or oranges. Hopefully it will expand to other juices. Nice addition to the Dairy farm with the yogurts too!!

Now...I'll have to reconfigure the farm again...

ummm..how about a third diamond? :D

So happy that it uses some from the trees as well. I think I will make room and buy it. I just can't plant everything these things take. I am sure i won't be able to keep them running all the time, but think it is really cool.

Is there a place that tells what one would need to use the juice factory. I haven't bought it yet, but would really like to know what exactly it uses before using some of my saved farmcash. Also, I am going to have to do some rearranging to fit it in. It is kind of big. Want to know if I really want to.

Yes, go to the Social section of the forum and look for Tony D's post. He's right on the ball tonight.

Raul - this game is getting better and better! I love the facilities and the incentive to grow certain crops to produce goods. The new trees are great too! I've been playing a long time and I'm still having fun.

Now for the dreaded question - with all the great facilities and need for specific crops - when can we buy a third farm?


Keep up the good work!

Neither my husband nor I have this new tab on our FarmTown yet, so I suspect that even though they say they've rolled it out to everyone, they haven't. It's simply not there!

Hi Mumphies,

The What's Cooking is not a new tab in the game - when you have purchased one of the facilities, and you click on it, you will get the option to look into it (please forgive me - I am running off memory in my brain and don't have it in front of me), then when it opens you will see what can be produced and there will be the tabs. You have to start production of items to see what is cooking I think.

Hope that helps you and your husband!

You need to click on the red gift box next to the item you want, publish it to your wall and then someone can redeem it from your wall :)

Nice additions your making it fun keep the enprovements coming and thanks for tring to get rid of the bugs.

You can see different offers from third parties by going on this link (http://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/offers/) and completing offers for free (make sure they're the free ones, as indicated with the "free" symbol", these can earn you Farm Cash or Coins, you can pick which one from the two tabs just above the offers :)

I was really excited to see the juice factory, but upset to find once again that I cannot have it because being a pensioner on a tight budget I do not have the money to purchase more $. I am already at level 80 so I cannot earn more $. Surely there should be someway we can earn more $ or there should be an alternative i.e the same thing but without the pretty colours. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take note as I cannot be the only person on farmtown that does not have money to spend on games.

This is the first time I have written a comment so I do hope I am putting it in the correct place.

When you have the game up, there are choices above the frame, such as free gifts, play, forum, etc. Don't remember what all, but there is one toward the right that says get coins. You can buy coins there, but if you scroll down it will have things you can do to get free farmcash. Some of them cost money, but there are free ones as well. Alot of times, the first one will be something that says it is the Application of the Day. I don't really get one every day, sometimes not even once a week, but I do every one I see. You can not do it if you already have the application. They are simply games. All you have to do is allow the game and you will get 2 free farm dollars. I normally check them out. You don't have to give any personal information and my farmcash is there when I come back to the game, very simple. There are other free ones that I may try someday, but have basically as of today, only done the application of the day.

Just like you can post messages asking friend to send Easter gifts, your friends do it that way too and that's how you can send them Easter gifts.

Juice facility takes apple, orange, pineapple, grape.

Dairy facility takes raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries for yogurt.

I've bought all the facilities and am busy growing the crops and harvesting the animals I need to make pizza, yogurt, etc. Anyone want some??? Come on over! (The facilities are on my second farm)

I tried the produce faster button to hire neighbors to help with product production, but they cannot see my post on their wall. They have to actually go to my profile to get the message. from there they can click on the link to help and it works fine. . .but what a hassle! The same is true for me, none of my neighbors posts are showing up on my wall. I checked my settings & I have FT allowed to post to my wall, so I don't get it. Is there any better way this can be set up? Why can't we send the request directly through FT? or just have a button right there on our farm that they can click . . . the way it is now is a huge hassle, have to log out of FT completely go to the other person's profile to get to the link! Any suggestions to make it easier?
Thanks :confused:

I like all the new things including the pizza place. I got it thinking I could use it. However, I can't because I don't have a flour mill. I went to get one and I can't because I am short Farmtown cash. Are you going to make it available to purchase with coins. I am at level 80 and cannot get any more cash. Just wondering!

The red windmill produces flour and can be purchased with coins.

Would love to use some of the new facilities. Can't because of the Error x025 I get every time I try to click on my dairy facility. Have tried 3 different computers and get the same message each time. This really needs to be fixed before all of us that have this problem get disgusted with it and quit!
