Hey there,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes:

1. 5th Farm: Here are the prices in coins (the prices in farm cash remain the same)

12x12 Farm: 5000000
14x14 Upgrade: 2000000
16x16 Upgrade: 3000000
18x18 Upgrade: 4000000
20x20 Upgrade: 30000000
22x22 Upgrade: 40000000
24x24 Upgrade: 50000000

2. Tree Shaker Tool (FC): You can harvest up to 32 trees at once. If you harvest a few trees at once it consumes 1 Fuel, else it consumes 2 Fuel.

3. Natural Remedy Shop (coins): Allows you to produce herbal supplements like Ginger Powder, Basil Oil, Ginseng Roots, Aloe Vera Gel and others.

4. Furniture Factory (FC): Allows you to produce furniture from the bamboo logs, pine and oak lumbers and turkey feathers. The furnitures are Loveseats, Chests, TV Cabinets, Beach Sets and others.

5. Ginseng and Aloe Vera crops

6. You can now harvest the feathers of your turkeys and sell them or use them at the furniture factory

7. Edit Mode tool (Tool Box): The Yellow hand allows you to move and reorganize your farm much easier

8. The slowing issues when chopping trees should now be almost completely resolved

Enjoy

LUV the Natural Remedy Shop and new seeds...BUT... no ROSEMARY in there, which we already have??????? It is the ultimate calming/soothing aid :-) devs missed the boat on that one!

Lemon balm is another miss since we already have the trees :(
Hope to see these added along with lavender, which would be a new seed & expensive!

Great update on the whole & really needed the crop space...many thanks!

Thanks for the great update! If I buy the tree shaker, will one work on all five farms or do I need one on each? That could get expensive...

Thanks!

You can move it around. Or leave it on one farm and click the "move" item on the shaker and click the farm you want to harvest on. It'll stay on the original farm that you selected "move" on though.

I love the new features! I'm hoping more levels are soon to come and that this time I won't be at the top still. I wanna work to level up again. : ( lol I got a good chuckle out of the Edit hand. I like it though. The tree shaker is one item I won't be buying because I don't like doing any of the work on my farm myself. Yes, I'm one lazy farmer! haha Now I just need for my bank account to be replenished so I can buy the Furniture Shop!

Pineapples are no longer the highest paying crop out there. Ginseng sells for 515 self harvest and if my calculations are right the hired harvest should be 618 with the harvester making 129. I know it is not that much more then pineapples but it is a little more.

How do you get the tree shaker to harvest 32 trees at once? I can't get more than 4 at once.

It appears the trees have to be super close together. I have close ones and I got about 12. I had further apart ones and could get 2...but it's a great item already!

Trust me to post in the wrong thread! Sorry about that Mods but my excuse is I was beside myself with excitement. :eek::D

As I said, a wonderful update! Thanks so much for the fifth farm. I still have the 24x24 to buy and happy that I now have to earn money (something to work for) so that I can spend it.

The graphics for the new facilities are awesome!

And yes, I keep saying it but you guys ROCK!!!

Love the new stuff. The new facilities are really nice looking and smaller so they fit easier. I love the variety in the natural one and the hand tool is so helpful. I wish I had it when I was moving all my trees around!

Agree re the rosemary and on adding lavender.
Also, sage is used in some remedies and can be made into bundles and burned to clear the air in the house or as a prayer herb by Native American cultures (in addition to being a good seasoning).

Lemom balm is not made from lemons. Lemon balm is a type of mint, used medicinally and in seasoning. As a plant it's an excellent (albeit somewhat aggressive) ground cover in rock gardens and along baths and rock walls.

The Herbal Remedy Shop and probably the Furniture Store will go on my "eventually" list -- along with the non-functional Hardware Store from the last update. Nice to have things to look forward to even though I'm in no rush to acqure them all and love the game more when I do it at a more leisurely pace than some :)

Not getting the tree shaker either. I don't have all that many trees and don't place them in bunches or rows, so rather enjoy virtually "strolling" through my farms, harvesting the fruit and nuts from my trees. Not sure about the Edit hand -- hadn't had occasion to notice it; but can imagine messing up big time using that technique (not being the most coordinated human on earth LOL)

lemon balm is actually a plant not a tree it is similar to mint plant but it would be cool to have lavendar, lemon balm, and use the rosemary why not have a blend like with the vegie tray.

I agree with the Rosemary - also we already have mint and it is a great aromatherapy oil. We also have sunflowers and could sell sunflower seeds - pumpkin seeds too. Seems like we should utilize the crops we already have available.

Big problem though with farm cash. Purchased some - spent all but about 25 farm dollars and poof - I am zeroed out. Can't figure out what happened!! Some help would be great.

Jul 17 2010, 02:24 AM
Wonderful update, I love the remedy shop and am so glad to have a reason to grow garlic and herbs again (besides the fact that I like them). Was just discussing with a friend today about how the range of crops I planted was getting narrowed down to what the facilities needed and I never grew some of the others that I liked.
Love, love, LOVE the move (edit) hand. Already have made extensive use of it. For the next tool you add could you please make one that hides things one at a time? I would use it extensively when I am working on my fields. I really hate hiding all my trees or buildings when I just need to hide a few to get at my crops, and there are some other things that get in the way that I always have to hide too.
THANK YOU!!!

There is a message when you purchase farm cash.......

Coins will be available immediately after payment clears. This is a one time purchase only (not a subscription). Please e-mail billing@slashkey.com for any billing inquiries.

Hope you get this solved

I plan on making my first farm nothing but facilities so I can make the other all crops and trees. If I ever manage to get a tree shaker one farm will probably be nothing but different trees.

I do harvest all my trees myself since I do use them in facilities. Also harvest my own crops that facilities need.

I don't have extra money to buy coins or FC so i'm not going to worry about those facilities too much as much I want some of them.

Jul 17 2010, 04:18 AM
I love the new farm and I can tell that it won't be long before a #6 comes out from the shape of the diamonds.

I love the new facilites and have already got some of them producing , just waiting on my turkey feathers. Like others I bought first and looked to see what they did later! LOL

This had convince me to close out the farmville game as it is just lame compared to this. thanks for the new stuff and keep it coming. This game is the only one I even consider buying FT cash for!

Next on the list is the tree shaker!! :D

$45 for the tree-shaker? That's just taking the piss, when it's really only the tree equivalent of the 60k coins harvester. Just another cynical attempt to get players to buy farm dollars. Ever thought that if you made the prices more reasonable, it might actually generate more income? Halve the prices, and probably more than twice as many will buy.

Loving the fifth farm. I had enough coins to get up to 22x22, and only 10m coins to get to max it.

Like the idea of using lemon in the new herbal shop. I'd better go buy some lemon trees just in case I need them sometime soon! :-)

Love the new update but please there are lots of suggestions to improve the game without adding new factories all the time and none seem to be added i.e

A button or sprinkler system for watering flower.( no one wants to water flowers it takes way to long and is a massive chore and I see so many farms with unwatered flowers on them its a real shame )

A fishing net so we can fish faster because this takes way too long too )

Some people to add to our farms, children to add to our play areas and farmers and workers to add to our fields. ( it would be so nice to see our farms occupied )

A change of clothing for our Avatars ( we all look the same would be great even if it was different colour dungarees.


It would also be great if we could click on facilities or buildings or anything really and make them larger or smaller as we wish so when we are designing our farms we could make them look more realistic ie further away stuff would be smaller and things closer could be bigger it would make the game so much more fun. I think the facilities thing is getting boring now as we have too many and all we seem to do is grow stuff to feed them it was great fun at first but now i don't look forward to an update anymore because guess what it will be more facilities and none of the above which loads and loads of us have asked for time and time again.

Would also love to see a plow all button and harvest all button for when we do our own farms the same amount of fuel could be taken away when we harvest but it would save the repetitive click click click when we want the whole field harvested and plowed and I think this should only be available to people who are on high levels in the game a sort of reward for achieving a high level.

all these suggestion plus many more are asked for over and over again by loads of people it would be nice if we could have a update that just included improvements with no factories.

Thanks again for all your hard work:)

Thank you, thank you, thank you...I'm so excited... one suggestion though, now that we haev a multiple tree harvester.. would it be possible to also have a fishing net that would enable us to catch our fish a little easier???
I am at lvl 100 and was wondering what i was going to do with the 100 million coins I have accumulated.. spending fast... :) and very happy...

Hi there Areo1,

I can see you have put a lot of thought into your post and does make me think about these updates.

I am one that loves the facilities and always waiting in anticipation with the updates to see what might come out and never yet to be disappointed although I think the Tree Shaker needs a bit of shaking with the price tag. I ain't going to buy it although I have purchased most facilities that cost FarmCash.

I myself am not in favour of instant harvesting, watering and fishing, because boredom will soon set in with me. I would like to see a system similar to "My Town" (sorry if I shouldn't mention another game) where we don't have to click on each item. All that is done is run the mouse pointer over items to collect. I can see in time where there are going to be shoulder and join pain associated to game playing and this might be a way to be more user friendly. I also believe that many games will eventually travel down this road.

Um...and my clothes are also wearing out..haha

One thing that would be good if the devs got rid of that choice when doing your own harvest...all produce should go to the storage as I lost a harvest of tomatoes by accident, clicking on the wrong choice!!! :rolleyes:

BUT....at the end of the day, I do love the updates. :D

Edit: I would like to add that I believe the devs are always improving the game to make it easier for game players. I do love that spanking new yellow glove. A great addition to help us move items around on our farms. Thanks so much!

Nice wake up call this morning. I saw the rearranged diamonds, and went right to the RealEstate Office. All those plantings of grapes for the cellars and the wineries paid off with a new 24x24.

Then I actually thought a 6th farm was ready too....lol. Thanks for NOT offering it yet. Gotta think this whole plane out now.

Turkey Feathers! That's great! LOL How many will fit in the coop?
I read here in the forum it was 50 or maybe 100 of each type of animal, but I just realized I have 101 Cows in the barn.
What is the real limit?

I planted wheat on my 3rd and 4th farms last night, after the latest update. As I planted my fields changed from the normal plowed field to green grass background. I was charged for both the seed and fuel and received the experience points. Not sure what the problem is as my wife can see the planted areas. Here is a link to my farm 3:

Love all the new features, the fifth farm, all of it. Bought my sawmill and furniture factory, and put in a whole lot of oak, pine and bamboo trees. Then, I used the axe to cut them, and went to the sawmill to produce my first batch of lumber - but there is no place to produce the bamboo?

The furniture store has furniture made from the bamboo, so I know it is needed there, but how do I get it from cut down bamboo, to usable bamboo in the furniture store - does it not have to go throught the regular milling like the pine and oak? I am confused, as the mill says it is for turning the pine, oak and bamboo into lumber to be used in the furniture factory - please help! Thanks

Sawmill allows you to produce Pine and Oak lumbers from Pine and Oak logs (timbers). The cane does not go through the Sawmill. The harvested bamboo/cane logs are used in the Furniture Facility without anything else done to them. Hope this helps. :)

Anyone figured out how to get the tree shaker to do 32 trees? All I can get is 5 at a time .

About the time these new features appeared, my old features quit functioning right. My seeder only seeds 1 field at a time instead of 4. My plow isn't working right--only plows 1 field. Will probably quit the game, as it takes too long to plow and plant 1 field at a time.

LUV the Natural Remedy Shop and new seeds...BUT... no ROSEMARY in there, which we already have??????? It is the ultimate calming/soothing aid :-) devs missed the boat on that one!

Lemon balm is another miss since we already have the trees :(
Hope to see these added along with lavender, which would be a new seed & expensive!

Great update on the whole & really needed the crop space...many thanks!
yep yep I completely agree with all of this. However at the very least, we need the ROSEMARY!

Kudos to the developers for another great update. I'd stopped playing FT for a few months and came back when the facilities were added, just to check them out. I'm back to playing every day now. I can honestly say that, out of the half-dozen or so facebook games I've played, Farm Town is the only one where the updates actually improve the game and take it in entirely new directions. Nice work, folks.

Wonderful update, I love the remedy shop and am so glad to have a reason to grow garlic and herbs again (besides the fact that I like them). Was just discussing with a friend today about how the range of crops I planted was getting narrowed down to what the facilities needed and I never grew some of the others that I liked.
Love, love, LOVE the move (edit) hand. Already have made extensive use of it. For the next tool you add could you please make one that hides things one at a time? I would use it extensively when I am working on my fields. I really hate hiding all my trees or buildings when I just need to hide a few to get at my crops, and there are some other things that get in the way that I always have to hide too.
THANK YOU!!!

You can click a single item and hide it :)

Thanks again for a great game that just keeps on getting better!!!

I have a problem though with my new tree shaker. It only highlights about 8 or so trees at a time, even when I have a row of more than 50 ready to be harvested, and keeps charging me 1 fuel each time. Is there some trick to make it highlight more or is this a little bug? Thanks again!

If we have to pay Farm Cash for the tree shaker, it would be nice if it could be used on ALL farms, not just the one that it's located on. Otherwise, nice update.

Wouldn't mind a moratorium on new facilities for a year or so...

...and is it really too much to ask for cheese production to be raised?

You can use it on all farms. Just like the other tools, it can be moved to other farms.

Good job adding Farm 5, and the new stuff is very nice. However, I don't understand why the developers continue to ignore the issue of fishing. Many of us spent real money to buy a seafood facility that is largely useless because the fishing for ingredients is ridiculously cumbersome. If you took a poll, I'm certain a fishing net or boat would have been preferred over the tree shaker. It is still possible to get people to harvest your trees, but forget about hiring people to fish - they won't. Please, please, please add a net or a boat we can fish with.

I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo in love with the tree shaker... This is an AWESOME tool!!!! I haven't gotten 32 yet, but I'm working on it :) I'm happy just cause the two farms I've used it on so far has sped up the harvesting time so much, I'm not sure I'll ever hire people to harvest trees again.. course at 45 farm cash each, why should I :p

This was a truly wonderful add on.. also love the edit tool...

Love the furniture store, it's design is way cool...

Love the other fixes and addons as well, but that tree shaker is by far... my most favorite of the week.

Thanks for the 5th farm also... already bought and upgraded to 24x24. :)

Jul 17 2010, 11:31 AM
Love the new update but please there are lots of suggestions to improve the game without adding new factories all the time and none seem to be added i.e

A button or sprinkler system for watering flower.( no one wants to water flowers it takes way to long and is a massive chore and I see so many farms with unwatered flowers on them its a real shame )

A fishing net so we can fish faster because this takes way too long too )

Some people to add to our farms, children to add to our play areas and farmers and workers to add to our fields. ( it would be so nice to see our farms occupied )

A change of clothing for our Avatars ( we all look the same would be great even if it was different colour dungarees.


It would also be great if we could click on facilities or buildings or anything really and make them larger or smaller as we wish so when we are designing our farms we could make them look more realistic ie further away stuff would be smaller and things closer could be bigger it would make the game so much more fun. I think the facilities thing is getting boring now as we have too many and all we seem to do is grow stuff to feed them it was great fun at first but now i don't look forward to an update anymore because guess what it will be more facilities and none of the above which loads and loads of us have asked for time and time again.

Would also love to see a plow all button and harvest all button for when we do our own farms the same amount of fuel could be taken away when we harvest but it would save the repetitive click click click when we want the whole field harvested and plowed and I think this should only be available to people who are on high levels in the game a sort of reward for achieving a high level.

all these suggestion plus many more are asked for over and over again by loads of people it would be nice if we could have a update that just included improvements with no factories.

Thanks again for all your hard work:)

...and this is why there is an entire section of the forum called "SUGGESTIONS." It is so your great ideas go where the developers might actually see them!!!!!!

If you saw the sheer amount of trees I have on every farm of mine (with the exception of farm 1 and 5 (these are the lowest amounts) you'd know that a fishnet would be nice for me, but the tree shaker is totally adored. :)

I actually do my own fishing, I never bother to hire people. I think it's getting harder to find people willing to plow.. Even harvesters do not want to do it. Drives me crazy. So I'm all for a faster plowing tool. drag and drop the crop in the whole farm I say.. :p

I plan on making my first farm nothing but facilities so I can make the other all crops and trees. If I ever manage to get a tree shaker one farm will probably be nothing but different trees.

I do harvest all my trees myself since I do use them in facilities. Also harvest my own crops that facilities need.

I don't have extra money to buy coins or FC so i'm not going to worry about those facilities too much as much I want some of them.


With clever use of paths, you can cram an awful lot of facilities into a very small space. For an example, take a look at my farm Industrial Trees and Magic.

"LUV" was the first word I used & NOWHERE did I say I was dissatisfied! Simply made an observation that crops we already had could have been included & mentioned one that many have asked for & would be both costly & long harvest time.

Not that it should matter but I also purchased $20 FCash. That should have no bearing on anyone's ability to make an observation or offer an opinion.

Hey there,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes:

1. 5th Farm: Here are the prices in coins (the prices in farm cash remain the same)

12x12 Farm: 5000000
14x14 Upgrade: 2000000
16x16 Upgrade: 3000000
18x18 Upgrade: 4000000
20x20 Upgrade: 30000000
22x22 Upgrade: 40000000
24x24 Upgrade: 50000000

2. Tree Shaker Tool (FC): You can harvest up to 32 trees at once. If you harvest a few trees at once it consumes 1 Fuel, else it consumes 2 Fuel.

3. Natural Remedy Shop (coins): Allows you to produce herbal supplements like Ginger Powder, Basil Oil, Ginseng Roots, Aloe Vera Gel and others.

4. Furniture Factory (FC): Allows you to produce furniture from the bamboo logs, pine and oak lumbers and turkey feathers. The furnitures are Loveseats, Chests, TV Cabinets, Beach Sets and others.

5. Ginseng and Aloe Vera crops

6. You can now harvest the feathers of your turkeys and sell them or use them at the furniture factory

7. Edit Mode tool (Tool Box): The Yellow hand allows you to move and reorganize your farm much easier

8. The slowing issues when chopping trees should now be almost completely resolved

Enjoy

Love the yellow hand - -- it really is wonderful - thanks for it.

You can use it on all farms. Just like the other tools, it can be moved to other farms.

He's talking about using it on all farm like we can with the big plow, WITHOUT moving it all the time.

Frankly, the shaker is worthless. Why woul;dnt you have someone ELSE do the trees when the rest of a farm is harvested?v you get more money on hired out crops/trees.

The ONLY thing the shaker would be good for, is if it can be used while working on other ppls farms.

Thats an idea for the devs.
If they wanna give us a good update, give us the ability to use our owned tools on other ppls farms when we get hired, and make the fishing faster and easier.
I had to delete all my water because NO ONE ever wants to be hired to fish, and im sure as hell not gonna do it myself either.
Something else to make a good update is to make the facilities on myspace produce faster like the facebook players have or speed them up somehow.

Vectoria, move it back to the farm it was on, take all the animals out and move them to storage. Then move the facilities to the new farm and take the animals out of storage to put them back in the shed/coop.





Is anyone else having issues with the Marketplace? I went there an hour ago and tried again a few minutes ago and it's showing that I'm the only one there. Same with the Inn and Realtor.

Do you have a neighbor that is not having issues going to the market?? if you do go to their farm first then go to the market.. you will be on their server then.... your server may be having issues right now still rolling out the new updates...

WAY better than that other farm game I used to like, but now can rot for all I care, no time for it ;)
Has anyone heard an official word yet on the SHEDs? How many animals can they really hold & harvest correctly? I know someone was going to look into that with the devs, but I haven't seen an answer yet.

I had suggested that a few days back..... offering a "tool" - the watering machines that stretch over fields of crops. It could cost $$ and use fuel, and maybe increase the value of the crop it watered..... or something like that
But I think it would be a neat addition and be more compatible to a FARM than a Bait/Sushi Store. lol

I have a feeling that the next updates will include a way to use the tree shaker on all farms while it is stationary on just one...... just give the dev's time! folks this is no easy task they do for this game.... it's possible that if they included that it would of made the game not stable so they have to roll it out slowly..... we have no idea of the difficulty of adding these updates while keeping the game running. other games shut down for hours or if they stay online they are just impossible to log onto ..........or impossible to play if you get to log on them........

What's a gal to do????? :confused:

Love the new updates can I please ask for two more things though.When I get a new farm at least one of the others has to be completely redone (no idea why) could we please have for dirt path for instance 'sell 1 or all' as an option I just took an hour selling all my crates to make room or perhaps delete 1 or all as we have the option now on the buy.
Also please a fishing boat,trap,or net fishing is so very tedious.
love the herbal shop off to plant new seeds.

absolutely loving all of the new features! You devs are the best and you are making this game even more fun to play. I agree with the comments about 1) Lavender (new crop) Rosemary (with existing seeds) in the Natural Remedies shop and 2) Lemonade. I would LOVE to make lemonade using my Lemonade Stand and my Lemon Trees.

Cheers. Thanks for making Farm Town kick ***!

I think the hand is retarded but I like the other stuff. The tree shaker cost a lot but since it works on all farms it's a good price.

I have to take mine from farm to farm and it only does 5 trees. I have bought everything they release and of all the stuff I like this one the least. :(

I love the updates!! Thank you for all the new stuff ..

I really love playing but I am starting to get hand issues :( ... my biggest complaint and what I would love most is, when we get hired to harvest or plow ... If the farm has the equipment out ... ;) I have a set out on every farm ..

WHY !! can't the worker do 4 plots at a time ???? I am not a computer whiz :confused: but shouldn't this be something easy to do and make the game more user friendly ???

I feel bad that I don't like to harvest 'and' plow too [ I don't need the points from plowing] but feel 'guilty' that I don't like to plow after I've harvested for someone ..

... Please change this feature to help us addicts play without getting hand issues ...

I think we need to sell the tree shaker for less FC, NO ONE has that much unless it is purchased and I don't have the extra money to pay to play a FREE game... also I love the Herbal Remedy's that is BRILLIANT... also like the new Furniture Factory, wanting to save my FC for that... cannot wait... how about farm #6 coming out soon??? Would be great... thanks again devs! Cannot wait for farm #6 as there is a spot for it now! Then #7 and #8... OK, I admit it, I am addicted... :/

Ah,A free game.:)

With extras that cost $.:eek:

So just play the free part if you can't afford the rest.;)

My impression was that's it's the folks who are big into the facilities who keep asking for more farms. Facilities make the big bucks, so you pay for your increased use of the server...
lf it were cheap and easy we'd all get them. l doubt l'll ever get the third farm as l'm not much into the facilities. l'll just restructure to make room.

And Raul and Team - l hope when you guys take this game commercial, you make many, MANY millions of dollars!! You deserve it! You'll have to get buttons that say "lm a Farm Town Millionaire". LOL

I do not mean the price but I would not have stopped in to see my farm, I have been blocked since yesterday, even bought several things and the fifth farm, total, do not want to pay than not.

I have invested much money for a day for another block me, I tried it with mozilla, explorer and chrome, even from another site and another machine and nothing, but if I can get from another one of my accounts so the problem is qeu yours and not mine, I would greatly appreciate if you give me an answer.

I agree with you.im only on 16x16 farm 4 and no farm 5 yet.people on here keep saying you can make million in your facilities in a day or two.ok thats true..... but for me ive hide everything about farmtown on my homepage, so I cant get any help on my facilities.which means I wait 7days or 15 days till what ever ive made is ready.ok I can set it up my homepage to only show farmtown friends, but I do not want to do that either.if facebook do some changes again it could change my home page and go to default setting with me not knowing, just like here in the forum, they did some changes awhile back and my information was exsposed about who I was.I changed that months ago to hide and now its all back up.all ive done now is wipe all my info and keep the tabs on my front page.

It's all down to how you have your trees placed :)

I believe the shaker does 4 trees from left to right and 8 from top to bottom, providing you have no gaps, which would do 32 trees in total

Apparently you think this is some kind of democracy, where voting for something makes it happen....:rolleyes:

If you take note of the newest upgrade, you will see that much more was done in addition to new facilities. So your statement that they only seem to care about facilities is patently untrue.

I think if the devs want to know what the masses are clamoring for, they are more likely to glance over the suggestions forum to find out.

Perhaps the developers have an actual PLAN based on popularity + profitability for this game. And while they listen to us beta-tester/players, they will likely act according to their plan. It's just good business sense.

I don't think it is too much to have asked respectfully that posts be placed where they belong on this large forum. I read the News and Announcements threads to see what the devs and mods are saying about new releases, not to hear people whining about whether lemon balm comes from a plant or a flipping tree. Or whether they can get a PB&J sandwich from a tastefully designed sandwich shop or not. Next we'lll start hearing how soy should be used to produce Isoflavones in the Natural Remedies shop so that the little avatars won't get avatar cancer :p ! That stuff should go to SUGGESTIONS, so people like me don't have to read them if we don't want to.

I knew that spending some money getting FC would pay out and I wasn't proven wrong. Love all of the newest upgrades especially the 5th farm.

Now I can have various timed crops set up on each farm with one devoted mostly to facilities. I am planning on using my 5th farm as my 4 day facility crops for example. That way since it will take me a while to build up the coinage I won't need to waste a fully upgraded field on just a few needed crops.

Still figuring out the yellow hand thing as well as the tree harvester but by the time I get those mastered the next upgrades should be arriving. :p

The only 2 things I would like to see as an improvement is: 1. the ability to hide trees that don't need harvesting to make it easier to harvest the ones that need to be taken care of. But then again with the harvester that should be remedied maybe. 2. Fishing is a pain can't get help and it is very time consuming.

Keep up the great work! I appreciate it all.

Lemon balm is another miss since we already have the trees :(

Great update on the whole & really needed the crop space...many thanks!


I LOVE Farm Town and it just keeps getting better. The Natural Remedy Shoppe is great(furniture shoppe too) I agree tho that other herbs should B considered in this shoppe especially Rosemary and Lavendar. Pleeassee consider adding these to the shoppe.

Hey there,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes:

1. 5th Farm: Here are the prices in coins (the prices in farm cash remain the same)

12x12 Farm: 5000000
14x14 Upgrade: 2000000
16x16 Upgrade: 3000000
18x18 Upgrade: 4000000
20x20 Upgrade: 30000000
22x22 Upgrade: 40000000
24x24 Upgrade: 50000000

2. Tree Shaker Tool (FC): You can harvest up to 32 trees at once. If you harvest a few trees at once it consumes 1 Fuel, else it consumes 2 Fuel.

3. Natural Remedy Shop (coins): Allows you to produce herbal supplements like Ginger Powder, Basil Oil, Ginseng Roots, Aloe Vera Gel and others.

4. Furniture Factory (FC): Allows you to produce furniture from the bamboo logs, pine and oak lumbers and turkey feathers. The furnitures are Loveseats, Chests, TV Cabinets, Beach Sets and others.

5. Ginseng and Aloe Vera crops

6. You can now harvest the feathers of your turkeys and sell them or use them at the furniture factory

7. Edit Mode tool (Tool Box): The Yellow hand allows you to move and reorganize your farm much easier

8. The slowing issues when chopping trees should now be almost completely resolved

Enjoy

I was really happy to see the furniture facility and bought it. Havent gotten to use the natural remedy one as I am waiting for crops to grow, but I really think I'll like that one, as you have options for 1, 2 and 3 day crops with it.

However, some things just aren't in balance. For example, if you have 50 turkeys in your coop, you will get 50 turkey feathers a day. However, it takes 6 of them for each of teh 2 furniture items that use them. So you really can't produce many of these items. I am working on my second coop on farm too and you can have turkeys outside the coop, but still, this is really not very reasonable

Another items that is out of balance is wheat. I just harvested an entire field of wheat and part of another field, but it still didn't fill up the facility, which isn't too bad, except one uses alot of wheat in the facilites. I am probably going to quit using at at least one of the facilities because I am tired of planting wheat. I didn't buy the taco one because it also takes wheat.

Where as olive oil and cocoa liquor are like in abundance if you have those 2 facilities. I would be totally in shock if I ever ran out of either of those, in fact I haven't even bothered to load up my cocoa facilitiy recently as I have so much in storage.

I would like to see them at least make it so you get the amount of flour as you put in wheat, a one to one ratio, instead of only half what you put in. That would help tremendously.

More facilities are using wheat. Its like sugar. Before I could sell extra bags of sugar and not miss it. Now even when I plant a full field every 12 hours, I am barely making enough to fill my facilities. If I stop and wait for a week, I can go through a weeks worth of sugar in one filling.

It would be nice if you changed the hide trees feature to not include hiding the trees that we chop down. I find the stumps not too decorative. I would like them to be hid, but they don't hide well behind buildings especially if you have a number of rows of them. Hedges will only hide one row as well. But, trees would hide them great, but unfortunately when you hide the harvestable trees you hide the choppable trees as well, and would not be able to chop them down. So perhaps you could make an extra option. One to hide harvestable trees, and one to hide chopable trees.

I think it says something like if you want to exchange the gift, click here. So you click there and the options come up, you click the one you want, Then you must click EXCHANGE. When you do, the first gift will be replaced with the one you picked so you will only see the one gift on the page. Then you click accept.

If you use the facilities correctly you can rack up the coins.

12x12 Farm: 5000000
14x14 Upgrade: 2000000
16x16 Upgrade: 3000000
18x18 Upgrade: 4000000
20x20 Upgrade: 30000000
22x22 Upgrade: 40000000
24x24 Upgrade: 50000000

2. Tree Shaker Tool (FC): You can harvest up to 32 trees at once. If you harvest a few trees at once it consumes 1 Fuel, else it consumes 2 Fuel.

3. Natural Remedy Shop (coins): Allows you to produce herbal supplements like Ginger Powder, Basil Oil, Ginseng Roots, Aloe Vera Gel and others.

4. Furniture Factory (FC): Allows you to produce furniture from the bamboo logs, pine and oak lumbers and turkey feathers. The furnitures are Loveseats, Chests, TV Cabinets, Beach Sets and others.

5. Ginseng and Aloe Vera crops

6. You can now harvest the feathers of your turkeys and sell them or use them at the furniture factory

7. Edit Mode tool (Tool Box): The Yellow hand allows you to move and reorganize your farm much easier

8. The slowing issues when chopping trees should now be almost completely resolved

Enjoy

Apparently you think this is some kind of democracy, where voting for something makes it happen....:rolleyes:

If you take note of the newest upgrade, you will see that much more was done in addition to new facilities. So your statement that they only seem to care about facilities is patently untrue.

I think if the devs want to know what the masses are clamoring for, they are more likely to glance over the suggestions forum to find out.

Perhaps the developers have an actual PLAN based on popularity + profitability for this game. And while they listen to us beta-tester/players, they will likely act according to their plan. It's just good business sense.

I don't think it is too much to have asked respectfully that posts be placed where they belong on this large forum. I read the News and Announcements threads to see what the devs and mods are saying about new releases, not to hear people whining about whether lemon balm comes from a plant or a flipping tree. Or whether they can get a PB&J sandwich from a tastefully designed sandwich shop or not. Next we'lll start hearing how soy should be used to produce Isoflavones in the Natural Remedies shop so that the little avatars won't get avatar cancer :p ! That stuff should go to SUGGESTIONS, so people like me don't have to read them if we don't want to.

Theres always one. One who has to take things the wrong way I have seen so many posts on here with people expressing their opinions then others have to turn it into something its not.
No I do not think this is some kind of democracy I put the post in the suggestions as well and I was thanking the devs for their update and it just carried on from there sometimes one thing leads to another and im sure if my post had not been correct for this the mods would have put it in the right place.

after you send an item to production say your juices ok? click on pending .. then look up on the left of that window you will see "Produce Faster" ( i think, can't look now lol) click on that... a pop up window will come up asking you if you want to hire for help.. click on the green check mark... wait for this to load fully ok... a area that you can type will come up to ask your friends to help you... let it fully load.. if your in Fire Fox ok you will have a green activity bar on the bottom right of your browser window let that fully load before you send the request or it may not go out ok?? good luck...... hope you make lots of coins.......

Appreciate the updates and repairs of the glitches, however, those of us who can climb no higher as there are no more levels are kind of getting screwed. Also i have chatted with some folks whom feel it to not be fair to charge so much cash for some of the items. Some people can earn no more cash and well with the economy as it is some people (including myself) can not afford to use the credit card for a game. There must be a way for you to handle this and make earning cash easier. To be honest, i am ready to quit the game because i am really gaining nothing...................dont you thing there should be rewards of some kind for those just sitting at the top level??

I feel that if you do not want to buy farm cash for the facilities, decorations, etc, just continue to play the game without them. Some of you are saying you can't afford it-ok play with the items you can purchase with coins. Do you think the devs should just spend their time coming up with new things and not get paid for it. Some games charge a monthly amount to just play the game and if farmtown would do that maybe then everthing could be bought with coinss, I for one would pay to play because I love it, and I buy coins everytime something new comes out. If I couldn't afford it, I would concentrate on what I could get with coins and be happy. I have never seen such a group of whiners, I hope you all have lots of cows so you can have cheese with your whine.

Get over yourselves. The devs don't owe us anything.

I never EVER...EVER thought I would spend real money...

BUT...

I used birthday money, Mother's Day money...I used money that I would've used for movies I DIDN'T want to see...

Now...

I am leaving fallow fields....because I am re-designing and reconfiguring.

I LOVE IT! I do have to say; the facilities bring HUGE COINAGE...MILLIONS IN DAYS! If I could work that into a real life scenario, it would be uber wonderful. Now, I must go...I have a REAL garden and I have REAL cucumbers that are running me over right now and must reconstruct my kitchen's canning factory for 2010.

Bread and Butter Pickles anyone? :D

everyone is offered to earn the same amount of cash as those who havent reached the final level.. if you do not wish to spend money on more there are free offers to fill out under "earn farm cash and coins" thats the only way one would earn more free cash then another

Not a good answer! Something is way off with wheat production. I planted three patches of wheat, 15x16, 12x16, 7x20 = 572 fields. I picked it and started to put it in the mill. The mill only got 27 batches of 5, which is 135. There was some that I started last night, and after all these were added, I have pending 150, done 65. I'd say something wrong.

Just a hunch,.... you left the farm for another farm before your avatar was finished...
you may have lost the crop in the transition....not saved

always.... always use the "save" icon before doing another task ..... make it a habit

I was losing some crops too.... since I started to use the icon every 100 patches or so... nothing is lost.

OK, look. You stated that you and so many other people kept making the same suggestions over and over again and the devs were not doing what you wanted. Sounds to me like you thought a majority view should prevail and you should get what you were asking for because of sheer force of numbers. I am only saying that, just because a lot of people want something doesn't mean it is going to (or ought to) happen. That only works in a democratic voting system where the majority rules. And that is what *I* meant.

Have a *wonderful* day.:D

oh I have put these suggestions in the forum called suggestions over and over again along with loads of others asking for the same but nothing seems to make a difference. It seems they are not bothered on improving what we already have they just want to keep adding new facilities. :) and as brilliant as the new stuff is a update with some of the things that loads of people want not just me would be nice :)

A lot of the new stuff we have is what users ask for, like roads, paths, winery, seafood, levels, and more farms. Just because something is suggested doesn't mean that will happen automatically. The devs choose what they think the majority will like.

Who knows, something you suggested may appear in the future.

Thank you so much for your response. I have been using moving to another farm as a faster way to get rid of the little bars. I never thought of that as a problem, but there have been many times I've ended up with less than I thought I'd have. Sugar has also been a major problem, and both wheat and sugar are big patches of farm; I would frequently leave either of those.

Way back when, we used the "save" to keep the program from crashing. It would say "saving..." and we would know the end was in sight. If you hit "save" soon enough, it would just save and not crash. Other than that, I never thought of using it. However, I'll never leave a harvest with bars on it and will never go on without saving.

You've saved my mood also, because I was really bummed out about working for weeks to increase flour only to discover that I was abandoning it...

Thanks again.

I absolutely love the new Tree Shaker. I will never again have to beg people to harvest my trees. My shaker can harvest them all in a couple of minutes. GREAT idea - (now do something about the fish please).

You might have done what I do sometimes when accepting gifts. I choose the gift I want to exchange it for then instead of click on exchange first I click yes, so I accept the gift that was sent to me.

When I want something bad enough, I spend the cash. FT is great entertainment at no cost or in my case, a little cash...much cheaper than any other entertainment that I can think of. Keep up the good works, Dev's!!!

I was thinking about buying the tree shaker and was wondering how it worked. Can you move it between two farms by putting it in storage? If it works on fuel, I have plenty since I have the fuel system. Thanks for the info!
