Hi There,

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

1. Farm 8: Here are the prices in Coins, Farm Cash prices remain the same:

Farm12x12 - 8000000
Farm14x14 Upgrade - 5000000
Farm16x16 Upgrade - 6000000
Farm18x18 Upgrade - 7000000
Farm20x20 Upgrade - 300000000
Farm22x22 Upgrade - 400000000
Farm24x24 Upgrade - 500000000

2. 25 New Levels and 12 Gifts (Coins): About 70 new items in total, all in coins. The Farm Implements in the Gifts section have no functionality, they are just nice decorations that look well behind your machinery. All Winter items are now in the 'Winter' section in the Store. The Gift Certificates are now in the 'Other' section.

3. Superanimals (FC): There are now 2 superanimals in the Store, the Holstein Cow and the Leghorn Hen, they produce 10 times more than the regular Cow and Hen.

4. New Order in Facility Manager: When you hit the A/Z sorting button and select 'Production Chain', it will sort the facilities in such a way that will allow you to work continuously from top to bottom, as facilities with primary ingredients are on top, when you get to the complex facilities at the bottom you will have stored all the primary ingredients already required for these complex facilities.

5. Fishing with Bait (Already Launched): There will be 2 types of bait, freshwater bait and seawater bait. You can receive those baits as gifts from friends.

If you have bait available when you catch a fish you will receive 2 fish instead of one. When you hire others to fish, your baits will be used (not others) and you will also get 2 fish instead of one, in this case, employees will get double coins and will also get 2 fish instead of one when they receive their 'fish' bonus.

To check how much baits you have available hover the mouse over freshwater or seawater items.

6. Smokehouse: Allows you to produce cured and smoked products. You can receive Salt from friends. You can receive Pork from friends or order it from the Semi-Trailer truck. You can catch herrings in the Small Sea Coast.

Prosciutto
Cured Cod
Cured Herring
Salami
Smoked Cheese
Bacon
Smoked Salmon
Pastrami

7. Fish and Chips: Allows you to produce Fish and Chips dishes. You can catch squids in the Big Sea Coast.

Calamari Rings
Cod and Chips
Shrimp and Chips
Haddock n Onion Rings
Smoked Salmon n Chips
Seared Scallops n Slaw
Catfish Cakes

8. Harvest Storage expanded again by 25%.

9. Extra step removed from invite/requests flow: When you send gifts or neighbour request to friends, there was an extra screen/dialog asking you to email friends, this screen is now removed from the flow.

10. Phantom Gifts issue fixed: For users having Phantom Gifts in their gift box, when you receive a new gift or use some of the gifts in your gift box, the Phantom Gifts in your gift box should disappear.

11. The Level Bar now shows the correct amount of XP left to the next level.

Enjoy!

Thanks

--Raul

Hi
Thank you, we were expecting a botton to fill to the top the factories, and to empty them with just 1 click
there are too many...

Nice update, thanks Raul! I'm looking forward to fishing with bait. Salmon is really sparse. No idea what I'm going to do with the 8th farm yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Thanks in particular for getting rid of that extra step in the gifting. It wasn't big on the grand scheme of things, but more like: why are they bothering me with this? (okay, you want new players, but the friends I have who Don't play FarmTown, are manifestedly not interested at all ... I've recruited all the others!)

Haven't checked out the new gifts and things, too busy planting onions on farm 8, but will do so tomorrow. Thanks guys!!!

If anyone knows or has tried this yet, let me know. But are the SuperAnimals stackable with the regular ones? Can you have 100 of them AND 100 regular cows in the same dairy shed?

I'm pretty sure they mean that you can hold 25% more harvests and products from facilities before its full and you have to go to the market and sell them

Thanks for the update - you guys are doing a fantastic job. Man, it felt like a guilty pleasure spending 1.2 billion coins on the new farm and extra stuff. If only I could do that in real life *sigh*

It's in addition to your regular cows, so yes 100 super cows (farm cash) and 100 regular cows (gift).

Thanks all of you, and of course you Raul. Have been waiting for your update. As usual, love all the new stuff and the fishing bait will be great when it comes along too. Love the idea of getting XP's along with twice the fish, great idea!

Got my whole #8 farm, tentatively named "Is Eight Enough?" for those of you who remember an old sit-com by a similar name. I added the "Is" because of course, we will be waiting on nine at some point, right? But, not yet, lol. Devs need the rest and I have to get #8 whipped into shape first.

Also, have my new super chicken and Holstein cow. Can this game get to be any more fun?

Thanks again for all the great new items, features and of course, #8.

Kind of disappointed in it over all. I like the new levels. However, disappointed in getting increased animal production by buying fc animals. I was hoping for some kind of super feed, like fertilizing crops and trees, with a one time cost like the fertilizer trucks. 10 cows alone would cost 50 fc, way more than I am willing to spend. I guess I will just go ahead and buy another dairy. As far as needing more hens, that won't happen unless the meat production increases in my one truck. I won't buy 2 of any fc items as fc is limited. I guess people who don't mind putting money into the game will love the cows an hens in the store, but it is not an update that will improve my game in any way.

Also, I was kind of hoping for a facility that would use ducks or peacocks or one of the other new animals. I won't do anything with fish, so the new facilities are also not something I will use.

Oh well, perhaps next time the update will be something that I will enjoy. I let this game become too important I guess, waiting weeks for the update and then finding it isn't really for me. I will go ahead and start working on Farm 8 I guess.

Could be just a hiccup while the updates are rolling out. I just tried mine and it still works. Give it some time and try again later.

Wow, why so negative? You must have joined recently and have not yet fully explored all avenues in this game.....lighten up and play, its really quite fun!!! I have friends that don't spend real money and are cooking right along....Quit trying to be the best, and enjoy :D:D

Great update, one small kvetch--I like lox (smoked salmon) but cannot get enough out of 2 premium lakes to do anything more. Could we please have smoked trout--I live in Wyoming, smoke trout all summer, and guarantee it tastes at least as good, if not better!

You didn't have enough xp to get to the new higher levels. You'd have to have so much xp's after you reached level 160.

The levels are based on experience points. The highest level was 160 so people with points above that level would have increased, no one below it has.

Nice job,always making sure your players are happy.Thanks for the bug fixes too.(though I have had 0 issues,it's nice to see they were working on both ends):)

I do have a task for 1 of you that bought the smokehouse already.How much salt will it take to fill to max ?The salt is giftable,with it being x50 salt,just hoping wont have to exchange more than 5 or 6 a day to keep it running if I end up buying it.

Brian Sampson
Jan 17 2011, 10:02 PM
Will we be able to mine for salt at some point, or is it really gated as a gift only. That will severely limit the usefulness of the smokehouse, especially for some people. Just asking.

I bought 1 Hostein cow an I Leghorn hen and they have their own section in the coop and shed, so I would say yes yo can put 100 of each in each shed you have.

I have tried a lot of the games and none are as well run and great as this one. Ignore us when we ask for the moon because we are just like kids in a candy store and want it all. As faith in you I have told my grandson who wants to do this kind of work, to only work for a company like yours with high standards of excellence!

You all are GREAT!!!:p

We don't know the max number for items.

The utilization shows how much you are utilizing the factory. So the lower, means you are not producing that much.

I absolutely love every bit of the new update! I'm not going to buy any of the superanimals though because I don't run out of eggs or milk. Maybe if super llamas and sheep are introduced at some point I may them though. But not cows or hens because I want to conserve the FC I have. Can't wait for the bait to be available for use because I run out of salmon all the time! Also excited to see the new level names as I work toward the highest one and trying to figure out what to do with my 8th farm. I've already gotten it upgraded to 24x24 so I need to build up my coins again! Hope to see an increase in the storage capacity of the dairy shed, pigsty, chicken coop and wool shed with the next update...... pretty please with cherries on top?! LOL : )~

I am pleased that we now have super animals---I had no problem putting the new chicken in the chicken coop---but no matter how I tried--the holstein has decided--it is not going to be highlighted so obviously there is absolutely no way to put it in the barn. Is there a secret to this animal. I have zoomed in and I have zoomed out and it will not be highlighted.

NitaA
Jan 17 2011, 10:42 PM
Love the update!!!

One question. Salt is the only product without a category. You can sort your storage anyway you like but it doesn't show up under any of the categories ("All" is not a category). I only ask because I sort my spreadsheets sometimes by categories and was just wondering what they are going to list this as.

Texas Star
Jan 17 2011, 10:43 PM
Thank you...lots of nice things...but if you are adding herring to the small seacoast and squid to the big seacoast I would think the number of fish in each seacoast would be increased by the number of herring or squid added. Now we will get less of the other fish we were already using to make room for the new fish? Also, why the variation in the number of fish in the seacoasts, depending on which orientation you choose (99/122, 203/210)?

Did you try hiding items around it? I know when I try to put stuff in storage like my animals and they won't highlight it helps to hide a lot of nearby items.

Hi ,

It looks like it's stuck because you placed him slightly too close to your smokehouse. I did manage to highlight it very briefly. Try un ticking the "freeze animals" option in your game settings, for a bit which should allow him move away from it and then try clicking on him again. Dont forget to re freeze the animals when you are done.

Question - trying to read to see if anyone else has asked this yet but I'm not seeing it. The new cow and chicken ... do you only need to buy 1 of each to put in the cow barn and chicken coop for them to produce more? Or they only produce x10 for the one animal?

Hi,

1 Holstien cow will give you 10 milk, 1 Leghorn Hen gives you 10 eggs.

Hi,

1 Holstien cow will give you 10 milk, 1 Leghorn Hen gives you 10 eggs.

Thanks, so by putting 1 Holstein in my barn will give me 110 when I collect. So if I put in 10 Holstein cows then I will get an extra 100 milk, is that correct? Or can you only add one to the barn?

The new things are great. I don't think it is fair that some people level up while others didn't. For example some of my neighbors went from level 160 to 185 while others didn't. I think it would be nice if we got up a few levels for loving the game so much.

You do kind of level up for how much you love the game. After all you get points for playing the game, so the more you play, the more points you get. Levels are base entirely on points, so if some neighbors went up levels, it is because they had the correct number of points to go up.

Oh Joy!!!!! It's here, Farm 8 is here!

Loving the new updates and animals. The Holsteins and Leghorns look/move so much better than the original "cartoon" cows and hens.

Thank you so much of all your hard work Devs.

Thanks, so by putting 1 Holstein in my barn will give me 110 when I collect. So if I put in 10 Holstein cows then I will get an extra 100 milk, is that correct? Or can you only add one to the barn?

If you have 100 normal cows in your barn and 1 Holstein cow, yes you will get 110 milk. You can store 100 Holstien cows in your barn as well as the 100 normal cows :)

Wow, why so negative? You must have joined recently and have not yet fully explored all avenues in this game.....lighten up and play, its really quite fun!!! I have friends that don't spend real money and are cooking right along....Quit trying to be the best, and enjoy :D:D

Well, I guess it isn't because I haven't played the game long enough. I'm level 185. Perhaps it is because I have played the game too much, or maybe because I don't put real money into the game. I was only saying that I was waiting with anticipation for the update hoping for a way to increase all animal production for maybe 50 farmcash, or maybe a new facility, especially if it took a new animal. I was simply saying this update was disappointing. Not that I was not enjoying the game. There is nothing in this update that excited me in the least. I bought farm8, but wasn't really caring if I had another farm. The facilities take fish. I don't do fish. It would cost 50 farmcash to buy 10 cows and another 50 for 10 hens. I am sure this is no problem for many who put real money into the game and I think that makes some people really happy, and that is fine by me. I am just saying that it means nothing to me. I will continue with my regular cows and hens (never run out of eggs anyway, just turkey feathers). I am afraid in a sense updates are kind of like Christmas. One waits in anticipation for something new to keep the game exciting. Well, I guess I waited in anticipation, and was let down as there was nothing in this update I wanted. I am glad some people wanted it, it just wasn't me.

your friends or neighbors select 'work faster' while in pending production mode for one of their factories. it posts to their friends and neighbors sites. you click on 'click here to help' and go to their farm and follow instructions.

If you want someone to work on your farm, do the same thing, select any of your factories, select 'pending production' in the upper left select 'work faster'
you only have to do it at one factory, anyone who answers can work all your facilities.

Thank you for the new farm 8 and updates. I think I am going to like the new SmokeHouse facility. Would be nice to have Salmon a bit more plentiful. I do like the new feature in the facility manager for the progression order. I think I can work with that. Much better than was we got originally. Thank you.

I am still dissipointed that we did not get Yeast as a gift. Been asking that ever since the brewery came out.

Curious to see how the bait is going to work.
Also curious to see what you have in mind for the various attachments that came out in the gifts.

Thanks in particular for getting rid of that extra step in the gifting. It wasn't big on the grand scheme of things, but more like: why are they bothering me with this? (okay, you want new players, but the friends I have who Don't play FarmTown, are manifestedly not interested at all ... I've recruited all the others!)

Haven't checked out the new gifts and things, too busy planting onions on farm 8, but will do so tomorrow. Thanks guys!!!

LOL I planted something until I figure out what I want to do with it; then wished I had not been so hasty. I am naming it The Onion Field (book title) because when I harvest tomorrow morning the entire thing is gonna be onions, because I ran out of them today. Again.

Do not know what you mean by not getting any credit.

I am glad they increased levels for two reasons. One is, I know myself and when I reach top level, the incentive to play would be gone. The second reason is: last time levels were increased my top neighbors, rushed to get to 160 in a few days. Then they slacked off and had very little need of my help, did not publish facilities much either.

Now, I can go to market to work, but it is more fun working with friends/neighbors, due to Chat. I enjoy Market jobs, but missed daily visits with neighbors.

Jan 18 2011, 12:57 AM
Thank you...lots of nice things...but if you are adding herring to the small seacoast and squid to the big seacoast I would think the number of fish in each seacoast would be increased by the number of herring or squid added. Now we will get less of the other fish we were already using to make room for the new fish? Also, why the variation in the number of fish in the seacoasts, depending on which orientation you choose (99/122, 203/210)?

I haven't paid any attention to how much of each fish there were in the coasts before, with any luck only the numbers for those not used will have gone down.

As for why the number of fish vary depending on the orientation of the coast, I recall this was answered sometime ago... they were made separately and that's just the way they are, they won't be changed to be the same.

Your neighbors post on their wall that they want help with production. You click it, it takes you to their farm, pop-ups will take you through all facilities that have work, you click "Produce" ( think or is it Production?).

Most people will note if they work available on more than one farm. So you go to next farm, follow pop-ups. If all production is done on farms that have facilities, there will be no pop-up.

When you work your facilities and click Produce Faster, there is a FB pop-up to publish on your wall, so your neighbor/friends can do likewise to help you.

Thanks for a great update. But super cows don't help a lot with cheese production. An increase in cheese output would be great. And without an extra facility to do it.

I did not produce cheese for a long time, because I got so much of it working neighbor's dairy. I also acquire an overabundance of butter. Which means I end up having 5,000 milk to use.

With Farm 8 I will be able to produce more wheat to try to use up my excess milk, sugar, eggs by producing Cheese cake. My neighbors also keep me well supplied with peanut butter, which means I am always using my flour to make bread, just for that; rather than producing more breakfast dishes that would use up the eggs.

When you go into a facility to start production, there are TWO tabs. The tab that opens automatically is 'things to produce', the other is 'what's pending'. After you finish loading your facilities, you can post for help from ANY facility by going into the second tab - 'what's pending'. On this page you'll see a button on the top left corner called 'produce faster'. Click that and you can ask for help by posting to your friends' home pages.

I agree on both things although the animals doesn't bother me as much. If I get some extra money maybe I'll buy FC and use it to get a couple of the super animals but I doubt it. I didn't buy either new facility yet and I doubt I will if they use cheese. I don't get enough as it is and I have four or maybe five dairy processing plants. I'm going to buy a new one for my 8th farm but by now I would've thought the cheese production would've been increased. Can we please get that next? Along with increased capacity on animal storage buildings? LOL : )~

Just wish we had the ability to make items larger or smaller so then I could have shrunk the chicken coop or made the house bigger. Don't know if this is something you could do but it would be amazing if you could.

I agree. I have a dairy farm on all 8 now and still do not produce enough. Either it needs to be quicker OR the produce higher than 540. Cheese is used in almost every facility. I am forever running out.

How do the superanimals work? I thought for the $5 farmcash it would multiply the amt of cows I have by 10. ?? After purchasing the holstein cow & the leghorn hen, it only added 10 milk, & not times 10, like I thought it would. If this is the case, $5 farmcash is not a reasonable amt to spend for 10 milk. Please advise on how this is really supposed to work...

After purchasing the holstein cow & the leghorn hen, it only added 10 milk, & not times 10, like I thought it would. If this is the case, $5 farmcash is not a reasonable amt to spend for 10 milk. Please advise on how this is really supposed to work...

The cow itself is equal to 10 cows. So 2 cows will get you 20 milk. So it is working correctly.

Thank you for farm 8. Wonderful! I've been saving up so for the first time I could go in and buy the whole farm at once. (Oh, the time it took, reloading the game on my slow computer after each land upgrade. lol)

Great to have new levels. For those who are upset that some of us have now got ahead of you, my understanding of this game is that it's the journey that's important, not the destination. In fact, once you reach the top level it's frustrating because there are no longer the rewards of farm cash. Enjoy being on a lower level, knowing that you can still plan ahead what to do with the farm cash coming to you. If the devs didn't give us more levels, you would be limited in your eventual farm cash. I miss that gradual increment.

I like the new decorations, though my farm isn't set out in a way that will use them. Perhaps I will think of places for them to go.

The facilities aren't to my taste (as I steer clear of fish and scarce meat) but I think they're a great addition to the game.

I have worked hard to get to level 154 and now you have upped the levels! And I did not get any credit, I was only 6 away to 160, now I am 27 levels away! That's not fair, and I am about to quit playing. Not fair! I don't have money to buy into this game.You're still 6 levels away from 160. That didn't change.

Absolutely love the upgrades (as always), but I wish the "Facilities Manager" was able to do all facilities from all farms instead of having to be on that particular farm to use the manager. As an example, if I separate my Oast House & brewery onto different farms, the Facilities Manger doesn't do me any good for those facilities because it's not "stacking" them so that I can perform the 1st function 1st & the 2nd function 2nd, etc.,.

I'm sure that having duplicate facilities (like two or three dairy farms) probably complicates matters for the Facilities Manager, but surely this could be overcome?

How wonderful to be on a new level. I've suddenly jumped from 160 to 185.

My only regret is that I've missed out on seeing all the creative names the devs came up with for the different levels.

Perhaps our super hard-working mods might add a section somewhere telling us the names of all the levels we missed out on seeing?

Thanks Raul,
You are the greatest. The new release is just fantastic. Have a 24 x 24 farm 8 now. It has not been named yet!! Got one Holstein Cow and one Leghorn hen. Will get lots more. :D This is so much fun!!!
I am just overwhelmed.
THANK YOU, LOVE YOU, ADMIRE YOU and all the kinda stuff.

And that goes for me too, bought already 4 hens, don't have problem yet with the milk, but my guess is I will. Farm no. 8 is named "AT LAST", waited so long that I thought that was the proper name, lol
Thanks Raul and company, you are the greatest!! I am ready for no. 9, and that one already has a name "Wishing Upon a Star".

I'm sure that having duplicate facilities (like two or three dairy farms) probably complicates matters for the Facilities Manager, but surely this could be overcome?

This was exactly my thought about this issue - one control panel for facilities would make so much sense, instead of having to pair facilities, especially since you absolutely have to have more than one of some of them (dairy, truck, oil pumps, windmill to name a few). to keep the facilities cranking, even at less than 100 percent. The truth is, the new modification makes very little difference. What is really needed is a one-button "empty and store" for all items in all facilities and a master panel for all facilities. Maybe next time? We can hope. Thank you for Farm 8, though, and for new levels - they are welcome additions. I have yet to unlock some of the new things, so that gives me something to work for. Thanks to the devs for keeping it fun.

Jan 18 2011, 08:28 PM
Hi There,

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

1. Farm 8: Here are the prices in Coins, Farm Cash prices remain the same:

Farm12x12 - 8000000
Farm14x14 Upgrade - 5000000
Farm16x16 Upgrade - 6000000
Farm18x18 Upgrade - 7000000
Farm20x20 Upgrade - 300000000
Farm22x22 Upgrade - 400000000
Farm24x24 Upgrade - 500000000

2. 25 New Levels and 12 Gifts (Coins): About 70 new items in total, all in coins. The Farm Implements in the Gifts section have no functionality, they are just nice decorations that look well behind your machinery. All Winter items are now in the 'Winter' section in the Store. The Gift Certificates are now in the 'Other' section.

3. Superanimals (FC): There are now 2 superanimals in the Store, the Holstein Cow and the Leghorn Hen, they produce 10 times more than the regular Cow and Hen.

4. New Order in Facility Manager: When you hit the A/Z sorting button and select 'Production Chain', it will sort the facilities in such a way that will allow you to work continuously from top to bottom, as facilities with primary ingredients are on top, when you get to the complex facilities at the bottom you will have stored all the primary ingredients already required for these complex facilities.

5. Fishing with Bait (will launch probably in a couple of days): There will be 2 types of bait, freshwater bait and seawater bait. You can receive those baits as gifts from friends. If you have bait available when you catch a fish you will receive 2 fish instead of one. When you hire others to fish, your baits will be used and you will also get 2 fish instead of one, in this case, employees will get double the coins and will also get 2 fish instead of one when they receive their 'fish' bonus. After this feature is launched we will also consider giving XP when caching fish for owner and employees.

6. Smokehouse: Allows you to produce cured and smoked products. You can receive Salt from friends. You can receive Pork from friends or order it from the Semi-Trailer truck. You can catch herrings in the Small Sea Coast.

Prosciutto
Cured Cod
Cured Herring
Salami
Smoked Cheese
Bacon
Smoked Salmon
Pastrami

7. Fish and Chips: Allows you to produce Fish and Chips dishes. You can catch squids in the Big Sea Coast.

Calamari Rings
Cod and Chips
Shrimp and Chips
Haddock n Onion Rings
Smoked Salmon n Chips
Seared Scallops n Slaw
Catfish Cakes

8. Harvest Storage expanded again by 25%.

9. Extra step removed from invite/requests flow: When you send gifts or neighbour request to friends, there was an extra screen/dialog asking you to email friends, this screen is now removed from the flow.

10. Phantom Gifts issue fixed: For users having Phantom Gifts in their gift box, when you receive a new gift or use some of the gifts in your gift box, the Phantom Gifts in your gift box should disappear.

11. The Level Bar now shows the correct amount of XP left to the next level.

Enjoy!

Thanks

--Raul

Thanks for the great update!

I love that the extra step was taken out of gift giving, makes it much easier.

I like the two new facilities, the design of the fish and chips shop fits in nicely in my beach community.

I've got farm 8 up and running along with dairy #8. I'd like to add my vote for a super dairy or cheese making facility. Or let us gift cheese. I know if I ask my neighbors for help making cheese I'd have plenty but I don't like to bother them all of the time.

Looking forward to the "bait" update!

Thanks again for farm #8 and the other great additions.

I love Farm Town and all the new things you give us to play with. However, when a new fish was added to the seacoasts I got less Tuna, I was getting 24, I noted this only because I was so happy to finally be able to make tuna fish sandwiches so I got out my trusty calculator and 210 divided by 9 was 23 of some & 24 of others, but dividing the same number of fish by 10 instead drops the total for each type of fish to 21. Since I only bought the large seacoast for the tuna and the small seacoast for the mahi mahi I am a little unhappy to loose several at each fishing.

VeronicaT
Jan 18 2011, 11:28 PM
Okay so I know we got new fish in each of the sea coasts and I noticed someone saying they get 210 out of their large sea coast. I was wondering, is mine going to only produce 203 since I bought it a long time ago? Or will it update to having 210 in it? If not, that's kind of crappy and not fair to those who purchased their sea coast(s) a while back. You can bet I'm going to utilize bait to its full extent too but I wouldn't mind having those extra 7 fish no matter what they are.

Depending on the direction of the seacoast..left or right,determines the number of fish in it.1 is slightly higher.Has been like that since they 1st cameout,and,not 100% sure,but the devs said they made it that way on purpose and do not plan on changing it

I don't remember it being that way but I have a terrible memory. I think that's pretty crappy to have less fish in one orientation but yet charge the same amount. I mean, I do want another large sea coast so I can produce more tuna but that's not on the top of my "To Buy With FC" list.

I have one of each. there is a seven fish difference. i want them to use one of the fish from the winter pond. walleyes or pikes. The farms have gotten so big i can't complain about all the production I have. I have a buffer of 3 million points.
we get plenty from the facilities.

I know it's only a 7 fish difference for the large sea coast but still, it costs the same whether you turn it to the right or to the left so it should have the same amount of fish or it should be cheaper for the one with less fish. I also have the frozen lake so having those fish used in a facility would be nice too.

Take a loom at the free offers I have earned 49fc since Thursday doing free offers.

Sometimes they can be a real pain. I did do one yesterday for one farmcash. However, I had a hard time finding one that I could do today. The first one I clicked on wanted more info than I am willing to give out. The second one, I filled out a few pages before it rejected me. The third one said you got the farm cash for only giving you email address. I gave them my email, but they then required my address and birthday as well. Which I gave them and am still waiting for my 2 farmcash. I submitted the screenshots and most the time I do get my farmcash. However, it just is not that easy sometimes, at least for some of us.

In my experience the free offers are, more often than not, scams. I don't ned a crapton of spam just for some free farm cash. The one I want to do is DirecTV since it gives a lot but it's only for new customers so I can't. Boo! hehe JK

The truth is -- for some of us -- that the new modification makes a great deal of difference. For the most part I have paired facilities that match in production on the same farms, and so this helps a lot. Over the months I have shifted facilities so they are with their cooperating facilities. So please do not speak for everyone. I appreciated this update more than any other, I believe.

That's your opinion and you are welcome to it, just as I am entitled to mine. Overall, the modification does not make a great deal of difference unless you are willing to manipulate the facilities in such a way that it works, which does not allow for as much design freedom. Thanks for your comment.

extra cows milk = xtra cheese duh, lol . try putting another dairy plant on a different farm to make cheese faster

I have had two dairy plants and still not been able to generate enough cheese to keep up with the need. I have now go to a third to try and make enough. When you have multiple facilities that all use cheese, it is increasingly difficult to produce enough. Also it is a pain in the @$$ for people to go another farm just to work the dairy plant. If they could just increase the limit to at least 1000 instead of 540 that would be very helpful.

just my 2 cents

Sometimes they can be a real pain. I did do one yesterday for one farmcash. However, I had a hard time finding one that I could do today. The first one I clicked on wanted more info than I am willing to give out. The second one, I filled out a few pages before it rejected me. The third one said you got the farm cash for only giving you email address. I gave them my email, but they then required my address and birthday as well. Which I gave them and am still waiting for my 2 farmcash. I submitted the screenshots and most the time I do get my farmcash. However, it just is not that easy sometimes, at least for some of us.

Hello Raul,
can you plz tell me what layered fields are
Hi There,

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

1. Farm 8: Here are the prices in Coins, Farm Cash prices remain the same:

Farm12x12 - 8000000
Farm14x14 Upgrade - 5000000
Farm16x16 Upgrade - 6000000
Farm18x18 Upgrade - 7000000
Farm20x20 Upgrade - 300000000
Farm22x22 Upgrade - 400000000
Farm24x24 Upgrade - 500000000

2. 25 New Levels and 12 Gifts (Coins): About 70 new items in total, all in coins. The Farm Implements in the Gifts section have no functionality, they are just nice decorations that look well behind your machinery. All Winter items are now in the 'Winter' section in the Store. The Gift Certificates are now in the 'Other' section.

3. Superanimals (FC): There are now 2 superanimals in the Store, the Holstein Cow and the Leghorn Hen, they produce 10 times more than the regular Cow and Hen.

4. New Order in Facility Manager: When you hit the A/Z sorting button and select 'Production Chain', it will sort the facilities in such a way that will allow you to work continuously from top to bottom, as facilities with primary ingredients are on top, when you get to the complex facilities at the bottom you will have stored all the primary ingredients already required for these complex facilities.

5. Fishing with Bait (will launch probably in a couple of days): There will be 2 types of bait, freshwater bait and seawater bait. You can receive those baits as gifts from friends. If you have bait available when you catch a fish you will receive 2 fish instead of one. When you hire others to fish, your baits will be used and you will also get 2 fish instead of one, in this case, employees will get double the coins and will also get 2 fish instead of one when they receive their 'fish' bonus. After this feature is launched we will also consider giving XP when caching fish for owner and employees.

6. Smokehouse: Allows you to produce cured and smoked products. You can receive Salt from friends. You can receive Pork from friends or order it from the Semi-Trailer truck. You can catch herrings in the Small Sea Coast.

Prosciutto
Cured Cod
Cured Herring
Salami
Smoked Cheese
Bacon
Smoked Salmon
Pastrami

7. Fish and Chips: Allows you to produce Fish and Chips dishes. You can catch squids in the Big Sea Coast.

Calamari Rings
Cod and Chips
Shrimp and Chips
Haddock n Onion Rings
Smoked Salmon n Chips
Seared Scallops n Slaw
Catfish Cakes

8. Harvest Storage expanded again by 25%.

9. Extra step removed from invite/requests flow: When you send gifts or neighbour request to friends, there was an extra screen/dialog asking you to email friends, this screen is now removed from the flow.

10. Phantom Gifts issue fixed: For users having Phantom Gifts in their gift box, when you receive a new gift or use some of the gifts in your gift box, the Phantom Gifts in your gift box should disappear.

11. The Level Bar now shows the correct amount of XP left to the next level.

Enjoy!

Thanks

Taking a quick scan here at the Forum. I noticed a post concerning the offers in which someone mentioned an offer asking for, in addition to email address, actual address and birthdate. For those who do offers (I don't), you probably already know this, but it is not a good idea to give one's real address or real birthdate. In fact, it isn't really a good idea to put this info on a social network either.
