Hey there,

Here is a list of the recent updates to FarmTown, including yesterday's release as well:

1. Father's Day items, to send as gift and to purchase at the store.

2. You can now transfer your animals between your farms by adding them to the Item Storage like the rest of the items.

3. You can now move most of the animals to buildings to avoid having too many animals on a farm and make the game faster and gain some space. You can move up to 50 animals of each type to their buildings. Here is the animal list and the buildings to which they can be moved:

Hen, Guese, Chicken, Rooster, Turkey -> Chicken Coop
Cow, Goat -> Dairy Shed
Sheep, llama -> Wool Shed
Horse, Donkey -> Any of the Stables
Dog -> Dog House
Pig -> Pigsty

The harvest functionality hasn't changed with this release, for instance, if you have 10 hens on the farm and 10 on the Chicken Coop, when you harvest you will harvest all at once (10 + 10), like before.

4. Animals' functionalities have been optimized. If you have a lot of animals, you can move most of them to buildings and still leave some on the farm if you like how they look on the farm (without freezing them). It shouldn't make the game slower now, 20-50 animals on a farm should be OK.

5. Gift Trading: This feature should make the gifting functionality on the game much easier. When you receive a gift, if you don't like it, the Mayor will offer you to exchange it for another gift on that same page, no reloading required.

6. Coffee Grinder (Coins): Allows you to produce Ground Coffee from the Coffee in your storage

7. Fish Farming Plant (28FC): Allows you to produce containers of Shrimps, Mussels, Scallops and Oysters

8. Sushi Restaurant (Coins): Allows you to produce different types of Sushi:

- Carp Sushi
- Mackerel Sushi
- Eel Sushi
- Salmon Sushi
- California Rolls
- Rainbow Rolls

9. Seafood Restaurant (32FC): Allows you to produce different types of Seafood dishes:

- Oyster Shooters
- Baked Tilapia
- Grilled Mahi Mahi
- Grilled Swordfish
- Seafood Mix
- Supreme Seafood Mix

Enjoy!

I've already used the gift exchange and it's AWESOME!!!!!

Then I put a cow in the Dairy Shed, so that is also AWESOME!!!!!!

I really love the idea of being able to move the animals. That is going to come in very handy in the near future as I'm re-doing my farms.

I love every part of this update, even the fish stuff--which I will probably not use as I don't have the attention span to fish. LOL :p So I probably won't buy the facilities related to fishing, but if I ever change my mind and get into fishing, then it will be cool that I can purchase those facilities.

This update is totally awesome!!!!!

Once again, NICELY DONE!! You seem to be listening to your audience, that's a good way to be successful. I noticed that the last few buildings are no longer cartoonish and you've reduced the footprint of new items. The latter is especially important in a finite world. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I hope to see some new roads in the future, I'm sure you've heard that before and hopefully will respond shortly:D

Thank you very much for allowing us to move our animals.
I do have a question concerning animals.
If I have a chicken coop and chickens on two farms can I harvest at both of them?
I want to thank you for this wonderful game.

Ok Raul, the kid gloves are off. This is my first and final offer - If you guys ever have the decency to release a new version when I am not at work - I will part with the readies and buy $FarmCash$. Should you foolishly decide to not accept my offer then I have three words for you .... Horse ,Bed, Head :p

Oh and thanks for the new stuff , I guess

Poly Fyre

each farm and each chicken coop needs to have the chickens etc... if farm one has 25 chickens you need a chicken coop on that farm to harvest those 25.... if farm 2 has 30 chickens and no chicken coop you can't harvest those 30 chickens.......... same with other animal facilities........

Count me in as one of the absolutely THRILLED!!! I am crazy about the gift exchange, however when I used it, I didn't receive the new gift in my gift box, but the old one. I'm sure it will work itself out soon.... :)

Jun 18 2010, 09:27 PM

This is my favorite upgrade yet. Now my cows won't look crowded and I can still have plenty of milk. *does happy dance* I just went and bought a bunch of llamas, too. :D I even have grapes almost ready to harvest and will be able to get a couple of the facilities. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!:D:D:D

Tony must be at work since we got another update today. Tony I hope you know we are not going to let you go on vacation anytime soon.

In the last month you have given us more land, more levels (with even more on the way), a way to grind our own coffee, transfer animals to building, move animals between farms, a way to make our own fuel, and the most requested facilities. What are people going to be demanding now? I'm sure they will think of something. :D

I love the updates and can't wait to get the new facilities.

I do have a suggestion, please move all the fathers day stuff to the regular store after the holiday, I think they would be good to have all year.

The gift exchange wonderful! now I don't have to worry what to send to who of all my many neighbors...they can just trade it in what ever it is!!!

And the ability to hide the animals! and move them!! whoohoo great job!
this will improve the game in so many way!

thanks guys! keep up the great work :)

Thanks for the upgrades - being able to stick the animals into their proper habitats is great - and much more attractive than having a whole herd crowded into a space that was getting smaller. Thanks too for the coffee grinder and the gift exchange - all great ideas! I am definitely going to enjoy the new stuff!

I have just added most of my animals to their building but the holiday pigs will not go in to the building. Yes I still have the holiday pigs on my farm they where too cute to sell. Other then that I love being able to add the animals to the buildings I see a redesign of farm 1 coming soon. :eek: It is about time for one anyway.

Brian Sampson
Jun 18 2010, 10:18 PM
I read about 50 animals in each building. Is that 50 animals total, or 50 of EACH type. Because I put 25 sheep and 25 llamas in one building and it let me add another llama. I took it back out because I did not want to loose it, and thought I would check first.

Also, I am assuming you can have (for example) a dairy shed on each farm, each with 50 cows in it. You would have to click the building on each farm (and they could be on different timers) but I am assuming this would work. Just checking.

I did confirm that you can move a building on the same farm and I did not loose the chickens inside.

So I placed a second Dairy Shed on the same farm and attempted to place my remaining cows in it but the second one indicated there were already 50 cows in it. So now I have 100 between two sheds and about 40 on the corral.

2 dairy sheds on one farm won't produce double the milk. They have to be on separate farms.

My only beef is that the capacity of the coops and sheds for the animals is too low. Some of us have tons of animals, and being able to hide only 50 won't make our farms load much faster. Can this be increased?

Tiger Laybourne
Jun 18 2010, 10:58 PM
thank you for the new info and all the new facilities. I have got the sushi restaurant, fish farm and coffee grinder. Very pleased with the look of all of them except the coffee grinder which is particularly ugly lol :). I am enjoying this game immensely today :)

I doubt that it will. Like Raul said, 50 animals is good because too many causes lag. That is why they added the ability to move animals in the sheds to help reduce the lag.

I think the coffee grinder which is nice should have been a shop like a Starbucks. Then we could make drinks also.

Taz D
Jun 18 2010, 11:17 PM
I add my thank you. Great update. The only thing that I don't like is having to click twice to get an animal into a building. The message is unnecessary and redundant. Besides if you make a mistake and don't want the animal in the building then look in the building and remove it.
Otherwise this is one of the best releases yet. Cudos to all!!

kensfreedom
Jun 18 2010, 11:19 PM
Thanks for the animal storage. it did speed things up. However I am still stuck with 70 animals on the farm so it is not as fast as it could be. maybe I will transfer them to the appropriate facilities on another farm and hide them all in facilities. free up space and still be able to harvest them. Glad I *****ed and *****ed about how much the game had slowed down on me with over two hundred animals on my farm.

So, just to clarify before I go and do this and loose something......

To use more than one Dairy Shed full of cows, they need to be on separate farms, correct?

If I put a Dairy Shed (full of cows) on 2 different farms, can I collect the milk from each of them and use the milk in my factories on yet a different farm? Just hate to buy another Dairy Shed if this won't work.


Thanks......LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the updates!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and can't wait for the next release allowing us to make sunflower seeds & sunflower and peanut oil, serve coffee in our coffee shops and fish tacos in our taco shops [hint, hint].

My sister and I have been experiencing major issues tonight with loading farms and being able to see each other to hire, but I am sure our wonderful developers will fix that soon. We laughed so hard while we both kept reloading and moving to different farms trying to both see each other at the same time. When I saw her and then she disappeared, she laughed. When she saw me and then I disappeared before she could hire me, I laughed so hard I cried! It's only funny because I know it is temporary. If it continued, I would go crazy. :)

Isn't there some way when harvesting trees that we can get like x5 each. Ex. Harvest an apple tree you get 5 apples instead of 1. That way we don't have to have sooooo many trees. I've got so many and know I'm trying to find room to put the avocado trees.

I do love the new updates, especially the coffee grinder. I've been waiting for that one. I am have problems moving back and forth to all my farms and sometimes when my friends hire me and I go to their farm, we can't see each other. Each time we have to reload the game. Has anyone else had this problem? My daughter, best friend and I are all having problems with loading our farms and working on each others' farms.

But we all love this game and are willing to wait it out until it's fixed. Thanks again for all the new stuff. Love it!

Thanks again for all the great updates. This is the only game I've played where the devs actually listen to the players. Can't wait to see what you guys have in store for us in the next update.

Moving animals between farms and into buildings rocks
Coffee Grinder rocks
Gift Exchange totally rocks!!!

I saw that it has been confirmed, a building full of animals can be safely moved around on the farm it currently resides upon. Has anyone confirmed what happens if a building full of animals is put into storage and moved to Farm 2/3/4? Assuming if everyone arrives safely, they'd be reset to 0% like trees are when they are moved. Am I correct?

Looooooooove the new updates! Beyond love! Thank you, FarmTown!

If you put a building full of animals into storage all the animals will disappear that are in it. You need to put the animals themselves into storage then move them to another farm. Then either move an empty building into storage or buy another one for your other farm

Yep, you're right. I tested it with a dog. Put the doghouse on Farm #1. Moved one dog into the doghouse. Moved the full doghouse into Storage. Went to Farm 4. Removed doghouse from storage. Placed on Farm #4. Looked inside.

Doggone.

Note to self, move buildings and animals separately between farms. Gotcha.:D

Hey there,

Here is a list of the recent updates to FarmTown, including yesterday's release as well:

1. Father's Day items, to send as gift and to purchase at the store.

2. You can now transfer your animals between your farms by adding them to the Item Storage like the rest of the items.

3. You can now move most of the animals to buildings to avoid having too many animals on a farm and make the game faster and gain some space. You can move up to 50 animals of each type to their buildings. Here is the animal list and the buildings to which they can be moved:

Hen, Guese, Chicken, Rooster, Turkey -> Chicken Coop
Cow, Goat -> Dairy Shed
Sheep, llama -> Wool Shed
Horse, Donkey -> Any of the Stables
Dog -> Dog House
Pig -> Pigsty

The harvest functionality hasn't changed with this release, for instance, if you have 10 hens on the farm and 10 on the Chicken Coop, when you harvest you will harvest all at once (10 + 10), like before.

4. Animals' functionalities have been optimized. If you have a lot of animals, you can move most of them to buildings and still leave some on the farm if you like how they look on the farm (without freezing them). It shouldn't make the game slower now, 20-50 animals on a farm should be OK.

5. Gift Trading: This feature should make the gifting functionality on the game much easier. When you receive a gift, if you don't like it, the Mayor will offer you to exchange it for another gift on that same page, no reloading required.

6. Coffee Grinder (Coins): Allows you to produce Ground Coffee from the Coffee in your storage

7. Fish Farming Plant (28FC): Allows you to produce containers of Shrimps, Mussels, Scallops and Oysters

8. Sushi Restaurant (Coins): Allows you to produce different types of Sushi:

- Carp Sushi
- Mackerel Sushi
- Eel Sushi
- Salmon Sushi
- California Rolls
- Rainbow Rolls

9. Seafood Restaurant (32FC): Allows you to produce different types of Seafood dishes:

- Oyster Shooters
- Baked Tilapia
- Grilled Mahi Mahi
- Grilled Swordfish
- Seafood Mix
- Supreme Seafood Mix

Enjoy!

Update was great, but now everything is messing up. People can't leave the market, you can't leave other farms. Sometimes when you get hired you don't get transferred. Please fix.

Farms load much faster with the new barn functions. Thanks devs, great! :)

Geeze, been growing everything but coffee I forgot there are coffee seeds. Was wondering where the coffee was going to come from for the grinder.

I need a break from this game, soon. Later maybe, Okay, not soon, much later. Maybe :D

Is there a place to report a problem with the gift exchange? I got 4 gifts of a vehicle, exchanged for tree, and landed up with 4 vehicles to sell...(unless I missed a step on the exchange thingy? Is there a thread that outlines exact steps in exchanging process?).

Fish Farming Plant (28FC): Allows you to produce containers of Shrimps, Mussels, Scallops and Oysters

Can anyone tell me how the Fish Farming Plant works? I am trying to work out which farm to put this item on.

Does it need my neighbours to help speed it up like the dairy or do we fish in it like the lakes. Maybe it is like the truck that brings the meat to the farm.

I tend to have the bulk of my facilities on the one farm to make it easier for my neighbours to work in, hence the question. Space is tight and don't want to mess a farm up without knowing what I am doing.

I think the coffee grinder which is nice should have been a shop like a Starbucks. Then we could make drinks also.
That would have made a lot of sense. Seems, though, the trend of SlashKey is to create single purpose facilities.

You will claim for all on that farm.

This is great! I especially like the gift exchange, had never thought of that one. Now I can stop agonizing over which gifts to send, just send what I like and they can take it back for an exchange.

Being able to put the animals inside is a special treat.

I like that we have some reason to spend the day fishing, as if I needed another reason to hang out on my farm. And the fish farming plant is nice too, brings in the fish in quantity. And yes, it works like the truck but doesn't take any fuel, just coins.

The coffee grinder is just what we needed and I still have space for a small coffee shop. :)

I like that we are utilizing some more crops, rice, asparagus, avocados, coffee.

Thanks to all, now on to farm #5! (Wishful thinking)

So okay I went ahead and used FC for the Fish Farming Plant and Seafood Restaurant. Great! Except that the seafood mix, grilled swordfish and oyster shooters don't appear in my storage. The baked tilapia and grilled mahi-mahi are in the storage but there's a ? which indicates that they 'can be used to produce ice cream!' Ummmm... fish flavored ice cream? Blechhhh :-) But hey guys, I love all the new stuff.

Thanks again for this latest release!!!

The developers at SlashKey are to be congratulated for coming out with an update which is responsive to the requests of so many FT gamers.
I don't see anything which fits in with the themes of my FT farms. I don't have or need enough animals to make it necessary to place them in buildings, seldom fish and prefer not to have many water features due to the unattractive color of the water and so won't be acquiring sushi or fish restaurants and doubt I'll get the fish farm. Also, since I don't plan to add the ice cream plant, won't need the coffee mill facility, but it's great since so many people have been asking for it. ....

The ability to move animals will be a plus should I someday decide to add a sheep pasture on my third farm and relocate the sheep from farm 2 there.

The "Exchange Gifts" feature is a plus which I took advantage of this evening, trading two fuels for pear trees. I don't have the oil derricks or refinery, but get enough fuel when I run out to last 3 or 4 days. It only failed to work on one exchange (lilies for another pear tree), but I simply planted and sold the lilies as usual so not a problem.

Well, I officially give up -- not on playing FT of course -- but on hoping for more functions to be added to existing facilities. That I would be willing to pay FT Cash for, just as in RL one pays to get the machinery, etc. to add new products in a factory or shop.

I also give up on hoping for my general purpose small town restaurant to "serve" breakfasts, a range of soups and sandwiches for lunch, and simple dinners. I'll just use a couple of the small houses (or other small building) in my rural town and have a "pretend" country restaurant :)

Obviously the developers of FT are thinking a lot like developers in real life who design shopping centers for small towns -- city thinking LOL

But, hey, lots and lots of folks are happy with these new updates and they really are great :) :) .... So I'm not complaining. ... Super job, devs !!!

Have spent all afternoon having a wonderful time with all these upgrades - the best ever I think. My farm runs so much quicker now that I have the animals in their sheds. Only thing I wish is that we could buy the green dollars with coins - I have nearly 40 million coins but very short on the dollar thingies. I will not pay real money for these but hope in the future I can use farm coins. :)

If it were me, I'd just sell them. Whenever I receive a gift that I can't use in one of my facilities or that doesn't fit into the themes of my farms, I go to my farm right away and sell it so my storage doesn't fill up with stuff I'm not intending to use.

Not planning to get the coffee mill facility, but just wondering if the ground coffee will have new uses other than for making coffee ice cream (which, BTW, has always seemed a strange ingredient for making coffee ice cream -- wouldn't a syrup made from a strong brewed coffee be more real?)

Doggone.

Note to self, move buildings and animals separately between farms. Gotcha.:D

:) Love It !!!

you can put up to 50 of one kind of animals in your sheds..... if you leave some animals out side they also will be counted when harvested... you can always put another shed on a your other farms......

MaryLouW
Jun 19 2010, 08:01 AM
Thank you for the coffee grinder!!! I've been waiting for that. Now we just need a coffee shop where we can serve all kinds of coffees, espresso, etc.

The ability to put the animals in their "homes" makes a huge difference in loading time!!! Wonderful!!

And the gift exchange, it just doesn't get any better than that!! Now I can get what I really need!!

Moving your animals from one far to another is the best thing of all!! Of course, it came AFTER I sold all my cows and had my friends send me more so I could put my farm animals on the same site but that's okay, it's nice to know that I can "remodel" without losing anything!!

One question - if you have 50 cows in the dairy barn and you decide to move them to another location, do you have to remove the cows from the barn first or can they stay there? That would be a cool way to move them!

It would also be nice if we could select multiple items while holding down the CTRL key. It took me forever to move my animals into their respective barns by doing them one at a time.

Bottom line, I LOVE this upgrade!!!!!

I bought the Sushi Restaurant but don't know where to get the "stuff" for it.. like the eel, crab, mackrel, tuna, and shrimp.

Jun 19 2010, 08:05 AM
Love the updates.. thank you slashkey... Just purchased both Sushi Bar and Seafood Restaurant.. And I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed! There are only 1 dish in each facility that uses fresh water fish.. The balance is OFF! Why?

Hate to gripe, and I am really impressed your giving us what we ask for... thanks :)

All cool stuff, but now hiring from market doesn't work, and if you're lucky enough to have it work, rehiring employee from your farm (say you want to hire the harvester employee to plow) doesn't work. half the time when you "go with", the employee is invisible and you have to reload game. Finally, how do I get rid of a Hen that FT doesn't acknowledge is there? (reload has no effect).

Eventually everyone gives up. Hire Requests aren't going through to all those hired. When hired I get thrown off the job, sometimes even when I am on the way. the count of items in storage isn't accurate. Please help quickly! thanks again for all the changes they will be wonderful once the bugs get worked out.

Where do we get the salmon for the sushi? It isn't in the oceans, rivers or ponds, nor in the "seafood farm". Do we have to go all the way to Alaska?

It's found in the big lake with the boat I believe... and the small lake.

Most salmon don't live in lakes. We have a few land-locked salmon here in the inland northwest USA. But, sushi grade salmon live in the ocean and make their spawning runs up rivers! Guess this is like the cranberries growing on trees. :)

I click on my sheds but it does not show how many animals I have in each. What can I do to fix this? Also, is there a limit on how many coops/animal sheds you can have?

Same here. I love the idea though

Oops! I figured out what I did wrong.

Having the coffee grinding facility makes me very happy! Even though the holiday pigs won't go into the sty, it's nice to be able to put them in storage. They were getting awfully hot in the sun with their winter hats on.

Major glitches this morning....
Hirers/harvesters can't be seen by each other after hiring. Seems to be rampant with us and our neighbors. One way around it, we meet on someone else's farm to hire. It works.

Animals that won't 'move' into a facility.... they have moved, those problem ones will have moved after you refresh.

Lots of people not seeing their coin/xp's going up. It will after refreshing.

Hey, Raul & devs. I LOVE the new update. But I found a funny thing. I use the little green ? mark to help me sell my produce at Market. If it has a ?, I usually don't sell. When I went to sell and the "Seafood Plate" had a ?, I was confused. What other use could there be for that? So I clicked the ? and it said, "Seafood Plates can be used to make Ice Cream at another faculity" YUCKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : P

So pleased with the new update, thank you. :-)

Love the gift exchange. My neighbours keep sending me trees which I don't need anymore, so I can now swap them for something I need rather than not accepting the gift.

Also, my game loads so much quicker now all my cows are safely tucked up in their barn.

Thank you Raul. I have been patiently waiting for a coffee grinder for some time. Farmtown is a great game and you obviously have been working very hard to make it such a success.

One simple request. Can you change the wheat to flour ratio of 2-1 to 1-1 like it is for sugarcane to sugar? Would appreciate it very much.

I know, no matter how much you do we always want more. But, it seems such a simple request. Thank you.

HI, make sure after you chose the gift you want that you click the exchange button too. I did not do that the first time so I still had the orginal gift in my box.

How do you think you get the strong, brewed coffee? You have to have ground coffee, of course!

Coffee ice cream is the BEST!
Okay, true, I'd need those bags of ground coffee to make the strong brew. Guess there was a slight bit of static in the brain circuits LOL

I don't eat ice cream (well very, very seldom), but have tasted the coffee flavor and it is very good. I'm wishing, in RL, I could find coffee flavor soy ice cream.

10 levels at a time aren't cutting it at this point, alot of us bust our humps on a daily basis with our farms and others are just riding along doing nothing and getting everything out of it

today I am having lots of problems hiring and working. It seems that whenever you roll out new changes, it adds glitches to the system for a few days as the changes work their way though. is there any way to roolout the updates without upsetting the servers so much?

would it be possible to takt the game down for an hour to make the changes then bring it back up compleatly changed instead of doing a live change that introduces glitches?

I agree, the new additions are awesome but I got a small problem. I spent a couple of hours yesterday putting my cows and goats in the dairy shed. Took a while because I had to keep reloading the game due to time out of the connection. Anyway I wanted to move my dairy barn to another farm., Added it to the storage and then went to second farm to retrieve it and OMG all my cows and goats that I have been collecting for so long disappeared. No animals except the few strays that I put individually into the storage. Is this a glitch? Will they come back? Did I just lose all my cows and goats? Please anyone who reads this and has a answer please let me know. I am heartsick...lol I am seriously adicated to farmtown. Thanks in advance for any help. Farm Town Nurse

I'm afraid your animals are gone. You have to put the animals and buildings in storage separately.

Put the shed back on your farm that they were on originally and the animals should reappear.

I had similar problems - cattle and chickens disappeared but after moving the sheds back to the original farm, they did reappear.

I think a notice of the potential issues is necessary. It should also be noted that only one building of each type can be on the same farm.


So, just to clarify, to properly move animals from farm to farm, they need to be moved seperately and not in buildings. Also, only one building per farm (it shows the same amount of animals as the other building but neither can be harvested - at least on my farm before I corrected things).

I like the changes but agree with needing another farm (maybe not quite as espensive as the 4th) and more levels. A steady player can move up the levels very fast and once we hit the top there is little motivation to keep playing.

Thanks for the update, I spent several hours putting in Dairy Sheds on my other 3 farms and moving cows around until I had 50 in each shed and the rest staying on Farm 1, net result 400 cows before, 276 cows after. Where did the other 124 cows go? During the process the storage was never accurate, it would show 5 cows in storage but not let you remove any for example. I finished, logged out and let it stabilize and came back to see to see 124 cows missing. I did not move any Dairy Sheds.

Thanks if you can help

You need to click on the exchange link at the right of your choice. Don't make the mistake that I did this morning and choose the link at the bottom or you will lose the gift that you want.

I have done it the correct way yesterday but forgot myself when in my hurry collecting gifts and chose the wrong link.

Level 90

I've earned 219 farmcash in the month of June alone. Yes, I spent some money, but it was money I would have spent anyway and I get farmcash on top. (I got my husband a personalized duffle carry on for Father's Day, for instance) Join survey companies, do app of the day, join Home Depot Garden Club. That could be anywhere from 10-20 farmcash right there depending on the survey company. If you're concerned about them getting your email address, set up another one just for taking surveys. Another benefit of survey companies is that you can make real money and get things. I've got 2 checks in the mail right now coming from survey companies. It can be done. Good luck. :o
