Bug Fixes and Post-Launch updates:

- When you buy tools that enable the 'Start All' for each product in a facility, they will also enable a 'Start All' button at the top on each facility to start all productions in one click. It will start products one by one in order of appearance, when it gets to the last product it starts the first product again, continuing until there is no more ingredients available or the capacity is reached. This button will be added to the Facility Manager soon.

- You can now use the Water Sprinkler again in your friends farms

- Farm selection when hiring people is maintained during current game session

Notice: Starting July 1st Facebook requires all users to purchase FarmCash with Facebook Credits. The process is very simple and secure.


Hi There,

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

1. Hire to work in multiple farms: The farm selector window when hiring others now have 2 tabs to either quickly 'Select One Farm' or to 'Select Multiple Farms'. If you select multiple farms, when the employee navigate to your farms the green farm selector on top will be shown highlighting only the farms where the employee can work.

Notice that the game only make sure that there is work available on the first farm selected, so make sure you select your farms accurately so the employee don't waste time navigating to farms where there is nothing to do.

2. Drive Thru System (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 8 Fast Food Restaurants:

Hamburger, Fish and Chips, Sandwich, Taco, Breakfast, Coffee Shop, Pizza and Bakery

3. 11 New crops and trees: Only the Ebony tree will have use for now. Next release will change this.

Trees: Ebony (12h), Grapefruit (3d), Durian (2d), Red Maple (2d, Gift), Juniper (2d, Gift)

4. Tables and Chairs (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 7 regular Restaurants:

Dinner, Chinese, Pasta, Seafood, Sushi, Soup and Ice cream Shop

Once you own these tools, new future restaurants will automatically benefits from them.

5. Tree Shaker 3 x 3 (Coins): Harvest up to 9 trees at once. This tool can not be used when working for others.

6. Bulldozer 5 x 5 (FC): Allows you to delete 25 fields at once.

7. Instant Food Factory (coins): Produce Instant Food.

Powdered Milk

Instant Shrimp Noodles

8. Musical Instruments Factory (FC): Produce Musical Instruments.

Panpipe

Tambourine

11. Stable Facility: Stables are now in the Facility section. It will be an animal facility where you can harvest the hair of the horses used in the Musical Instruments Factory to make the violin and bow set.

12. Other Improvements and Bug fixes:

- Issues in the market/inn/realtor office not been able to see people or getting chat messages without names should be far less frequent now
- Selling products in the market when having lot of items in storage should not become slower with time, should be much more stable
- When you work for others now the tool bar correctly show the most advanced tool you have for the Job
- Once you sell any log pile or use it in facilities, the Axe tutorial will never show up again
- Once you sell any fish or use it in facilities, the Fishing tutorial will never show up again
- When you work in your neighbours facilities and going from one facility to the next there is no extra confirmation message
- The open or close status of your extended tool box is now saved permanently so you don't have to open it all the time
- When hired for multiple jobs and clicking the toolbox icon, the extended version of the tool box will always be displayed
- When you click in a tool on the extended toolbox the toolbox hides immediately
- If you are hired and have issues working in the farm or with the network connection, you can now click on the highlighted (current) farm icon in the farm selector to reload the current farm. You will remain hired after the reload.
- You should experience far less X025 errors when moving animals from animal buildings into your farm

In the next release we will add new products for existing facilities and use some of the new crops/trees.

Enjoy!

Thanks

Thanks for the updates I love everything. I would like to ask that shrimp be increased you need way more shrimp then the other things in the fish farming plant so it doesn't make sense to buy another one just for more shrimp. I can't wait to see what new crops we get. Is there any chance of getting a coin facility for the horses right now both are for farm cash?

The musical instruments factory sounds intriguing, but if you need horse hair, there should be a stable that can be bought for coins.

Looking forward to the new crops, trees and optimizations. I've already enjoyed the faster working in others' facilities. Thanks!

I had just logged in to FB to play my favourite game and posted in my status how this day was going awfully and then I noticed one of my farming friends and bought a new facility. I came straight here to check it out. Thanks for making my day turn around and thanks heaps for the new stuff. You guys and gals are awesome!!

The only facility that I know they have reduced the price on was the dairy shed they reduced the price right before it became a facility but it was always bought in coins and not fc. Now I have noticed one decorations that was changed from fc to coins not sure when it happened. The gas grill used to be 10 fc now it is 1500 coins. That makes me a little mad because I paid the fc for it.

loving the changes in this release!!

just a couple notes:

i agree with others that have stated we should have a stables that is for coins. there are alot of fc items in this release so it would be nice to have a stables for coins.

why didn't the instant mushroom noodles in the instant food factory use the dried mushrooms instead of fresh mushrooms? it would have been better for the game and stayed truer to real life.

once again thanks tons for all the great stuff!!!

then would they give folks who paid money for there would not seem right if they changed it. the only one i reamber is the fancy bbq was fc then the changed it to coin.

I have to agree with you. I bought a stable for FC some time ago because I liked it. If they change it into coins now, I want a refund. I do hope they bring out a new stable wich can be bought with coins though. But, if they change the ones they have into coins, I want a refund because I have paid real money for it.

Thanks for the update, but no thanks, not interested in anymore facillities, except for the snack machine and instant food factory but only because i already make the things needed to fill them to refer them to clients but i won't be purchasing anymore. I am one of those who is bored with having new facillities all the time. Also I noticed that you have got a tool called table and chairs and a drive through system that enables us to start all productions with one click on 7 restaurants and 8 fast food facillities but each of these cost 35 farm cash won't be purchasing these either, wouldn't of minded paying 35 farm cash if the tool enabled us to start production with one click for all facillities but these two and the bottling machine from last update means a total of 105 farm cash and thats still not all the factorys covered. I will continue to click one at a time thank you but I am sure there are a lot of people playing who are willing to pay for all 3 but not me. I am a long time player and will continue to play every day but I just wish we could stay clear of new facillities for a while and have some of the other suggestions added to the game. Thanks for fixing some of the bugs and enabling us to hire multi that is a great help. :)

Very disappointed with today's releases. Did we really need another food factory? Aesthetically it is almost like any other factory so not really sure what the appeal will be apart from just another factory to fill, which by the way is going to be hard to do despite the bonus's from the belts and dans. The music factory and school are nice because they will look pleasing to the eye for those of us that like to be creative on our farms.

I would like to have seen some new decorative items in this update. As much as I really like the facilities and services...and I mean REALLY do, the game is slipping away from what made me start playing in the first place, being creative. The more factories you release the more each farm will start to look just look like industrial sites.

I will argue with anyone who says that factories don't belong in the game, BUT it is getting rather old now. I was hoping to see more paths, ornaments, all those little things that can turn a farm from boring to absolutely gorgeous. There is a list as long as your arm in the suggestion thread for new decorative items that just seem to be ignored with each new release. I have given up posting there now.

AND of course I would like to have seen farm 11. I'm sure I am not alone in saying once I have created a farm that I truly like I really don't want to have to pull another down just so I can enter the competition or make room for more crops, trees etc., just to keep filling another boring factory. If you are going to keep releasing new services and facilities with each update then you have to release new farms more often to accommodate them, because as I say many of us just don't want to pull apart a farm we lovingly created.

Having said all that, this is still the best game on Facebook as far as I am concerned, and for the most part you devs definitely get it right. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a new release, which I happen to think is not bad at all. I am fully aware you can't please all of us all the time.

I agree..... none of my farms are over crowded, but some are beginning to look like the food-court at a mall, or Industrial Drive. It is "fun" thought to try and group similar facilities on a farm and maintain a "theme". Fertilizing, staggering, etc, have become necessary if one wants to reasonably fill the facilities.

Billionaires are becoming a dime-a-dozen. And 10 million exp pts is more common. I remember the old days, when $1million was impressive.... now whoever is the first to work my facilities earns nearly $7million just for working a couple minutes at most.

Well unfortunately I have resorted to having 3 farms overcrowded, they are my working farms, nothing decorative about them at all. Everything is packed tight and aimed at a high production rate of crops, trees and flowers etc.. I actually don't mind giving up 3 farms for this, but the new update means if I do buy the new facilities then I am going to have to consider turning a 4th one into a working farm only, and at the moment I am just not willing to do that. If I thought farm 11 was on it's way I would reconsider it though

2. Drive Thru System (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 8 Fast Food Restaurants:

Hamburger, Fish and Chips, Sandwich, Taco, Breakfast, Coffee Shop, Pizza and Bakery

Ok I bought this but I don't notice anything different. I clicked on the hamburger restaurant but had to click All on each item to start production but nothing started in the other facilities listed. Did I really just pay 35FC to get no benefit or am I missing something??

Thank you very much! I love all of it apart from the fact that we have pay FC for stables! I was ready and willing to pay FC for the Musical Instruments Factory tomorrow, but now i know i have pay FC for a stable to produce horse hair for it, i wont bother.

Jul 08 2011, 08:09 AM
Thanks for the improvements Raul and gang.

I agree with those who say getting new facilities is getting a bit stale.

Perhaps a contest for FC for ideas of new things to do in Farmtown is in order. Entries would of course have to be detailed about what else you can add that is new and fresh.

Thanks again, don't get me wrong I love this game, just hoping you can maintain players and get new ones. I hope to be playing this for years!

Thanks so much Raul and gang.. awesome release as always. I know people have their views that releasing new facilities is getting old.. personally I absolutely love it. Love the drive thru and the table and chairs.. and I dont even care that they were FC.. if it gets the job done really quickly, then worth every FC spent! Cant wait to see the rest tomorrow.. thanks for the more simple ways of making the game faster and more enjoyable, ie :- multiple farm hiring etc etc.. just awesome! :) great work!!! lol

I would like to have seen some new decorative items in this update. As much as I really like the facilities and services...and I mean REALLY do, the game is slipping away from what made me start playing in the first place, being creative. The more factories you release the more each farm will start to look just look like industrial sites.

I will argue with anyone who says that factories don't belong in the game, BUT it is getting rather old now. I was hoping to see more paths, ornaments, all those little things that can turn a farm from boring to absolutely gorgeous. There is a list as long as your arm in the suggestion thread for new decorative items that just seem to be ignored with each new release. I have given up posting there now.

AND of course I would like to have seen farm 11. I'm sure I am not alone in saying once I have created a farm that I truly like I really don't want to have to pull another down just so I can enter the competition or make room for more crops, trees etc., just to keep filling another boring factory. If you are going to keep releasing new services and facilities with each update then you have to release new farms more often to accommodate them, because as I say many of us just don't want to pull apart a farm we lovingly created.

Having said all that, this is still the best game on Facebook as far as I am concerned, and for the most part you devs definitely get it right. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a new release, which I happen to think is not bad at all. I am fully aware you can't please all of us all the time.

wow we only just got given farm 10 and already were asking for farm 11

History shows that new farms are released every 2 months

it has been less then a month since farm 10 was released.

Love the new release especially the facility change! However, I've been hoping and hoping that you would increase the number of animals you can put in the animal pens. I have sheep and Llama's all over my farms because the multiple items that are made with sheep and Llama wool. I constantly run out. Especially the llama since you can only harvest them every other day. PLEASE either increase the number of animals we can put in the pen or decrease the harvest time to daily.

I saw someone else post about Shrimp too. I have two fishing farms. I don't run out of anything but shrimp. and this release added something more to use shrimp. It only makes sense to me that when you add another item that uses something that is in short supply then you need to increase production of that supply - Shrimp in this case.

But as usual. good job on the release.

A wonderful update! Thank you. I respectfully ask that you consider selling a capacity enlarger in currently owned facilities. There is not enough room for everything, even with a maxed out farm system. The precedent for this, of course, is the fertilization feature.

2. Drive Thru System (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 8 Fast Food Restaurants:

Hamburger, Fish and Chips, Sandwich, Taco, Breakfast, Coffee Shop, Pizza and Bakery

Ok I bought this but I don't notice anything different. I clicked on the hamburger restaurant but had to click All on each item to start production but nothing started in the other facilities listed. Did I really just pay 35FC to get no benefit or am I missing something??

if you hadn't had the drive thru system you could not have clicked all on each item. this is what the tool gave you the ability to do. definitely handy in the coffee and tea shop! alot of clicking even with the 30 in that facility!

Jul 08 2011, 09:56 AM
Thanks for the update..I think it's great..Really like the drive thru and tables and chairs option. ...
Fritz

I have to admit I'm surprised that people like these. For me, the ability to click "all" instead of clicking "+30" a few times - and it doesn't even work on ALL your facilities (unlike the forklift, which I love) - is nowhere near worth spending FC on. Oh well, to each his/her own.

But I must say a heartfelt THANKS for making those instructional pop-ups about the fishing rod and axe go away, and I love it that the extended toolbox opens directly. That, and the easier working on others' facilities, are my absolute favorite changes so far.

PS - can you please find some way of also getting rid of the instructional pop-ups for the "edit tool" and "add to storage tool" for those of us who are at higher levels and have been using them for ages?

Wish you had made the 3x3 tree shaker usable on other people's farms. My best friend could only get that, and she is stuck harvesting singularly. Since her trees on her farm are not set up to use such a tool effectively for the most part, she wasted coin. At the price in coin, for it should have been larger, or be able to be used on other farms. Some people really cannot get the FT$ as easily than others, so this must feel like a slap in the face to her.

Other than that, the updates appear to be most excellent. (just think I'll have to REDO my farms again, because of the stables now... )

When you go to an associated facilities (I.E. Hamburger Restaurant), the 'ALL' button, to place ALL available batches in production up to 15 days, will work now for you. Just like the taking stuff out of the facilities if you own the Forklift and click the Store All

Thank you for getting rid of the annoying pop-ups about axe and fishing rod. Now please get rid of the ones that tell me how to pan my farm, etc. It is far more efficient for me to use the arrows and minimise/expand buttons you have provided. It's frustrating to be told every time that I can do this with a method that is actually less efficient on my computer! Perhaps these pop-ups can be scheduled to stop after the second time they have come up on a farm?

Just tested this out with another moderator lol and it all seemed to work well.

You choose the farms that you want them to work on. The greyed out farms are the ones that you didn't select them to work on (or were not selected to work on) and the farms you can work (or they can work if you are the one hiring) will be lit green.

The game will only check and make sure that you have stuff to harvest on the first farm you check it will not check all farms so farmers need to keep that in mind and only hire for the farms that have stuff ready on them. This was explained in the first post. You can either check just the farms you want them to work on or click on all farms and it will hire them for all the farms. They will be hired for a farm and have accuse to that farm even if you don't have something for them to harvest on that farm. It is important that people know this and only hire for the farms with stuff on them.

Thanks for the update Raul!!! I have a couple of suggestions for future updates. Since grapes actually grow on grape vines....add grape vines to trees and thereby free up the crop space since we need so many grapes. Also make the silos working silos that we can produce corn, wheat and rice with coin (Similar to the mines etc.) rather than having to plant and wait forever for them because we need TONS!!! Thanks for all you guys do for us. FT is a wonderful game and it is by far the BEST farming game on facebook!!

I can't wait to see what new crops we get. Is there any chance of getting a coin facility for the horses right now both are for farm cash?


Yes, exactly! Well said! We also REALLY REALLY need the canned tuna to be increased, for exactly the same reason. I have a friend who has 2 Food Preserve Factories and he says it's still not enough for the sandwich factory. Now I need enough tuna sandwiches to supply the school. Since I am a Myspace player I cannot get help to produce more. PLEASE adjust the canned tuna?
Aside from that, I love the new updates! Thank you! :)

I love the update. :D The improvements in working facilities and ability to hire for multiple farms are long-awaited dreams come true.

There is one problem, which might be a glitch... or might have been a deliberate change. I own the Mobile Sprinkler and Flower Harvester tools. I've always been able to water flowers for my friends that hire me to do whatever jobs on their farms.. whether flowers were included or not. Since the update, the Mobile Sprinkler is grayed out in my toolbox when a friend hires me.. even if I'm hired to harvest flowers (when the flowers are still alive, but thirsty). If their flowers have withered, they can't hire me to harvest them until they're watered; and they don't always know if the flowers are ready to harvest until I water them. Bottom line.. the only way I can do flowers for a friend who hires me now, is to arrive first as a neighbor.. water all flowers on all farms that have flowers... and then they can hire me to harvest flowers. It's very inconvenient -- and I have to explain this whole thing to everyone now.

I know we were never supposed to be able to water flowers for anyone but neighbors (or is it friends..?) -- but please find a way to re-activate the Mobile Sprinkler tool for those of us who own it, when we are hired to work on someone's farms. Thanks! :)

Edit: I just realized that the problem I've described above is only when we're hired to do multiple jobs. The Mobile Sprinkler is still active when I'm hired to do a single farm job.. because the one-row extension of the toolbox is there, and that includes the active sprinkler tool. Since the update, with the automatic opening of the extended toolbox during multi-hire, the Mobile Sprinkler tool remains grayed out. So it's definitely a glitch.. which I hope you'll fix soon.

I have to admit I'm surprised that people like these. For me, the ability to click "all" instead of clicking "+30" a few times - and it doesn't even work on ALL your facilities (unlike the forklift, which I love) - is nowhere near worth spending FC on. Oh well, to each his/her own.

But I must say a heartfelt THANKS for making those instructional pop-ups about the fishing rod and axe go away, and I love it that the extended toolbox opens directly. That, and the easier working on others' facilities, are my absolute favorite changes so far.

PS - can you please find some way of also getting rid of the instructional pop-ups for the "edit tool" and "add to storage tool" for those of us who are at higher levels and have been using them for ages?

Hi Earl...My time to play is really limited due to real job..Yes it is minor time savings but to me well worth it.

Those are good ideas, but you have to plan all of that stuff to begin with, so why bother?

We wouldn't have to use crop space planting grapes if we had grape vines to harvest them from and if we produced the grains using coin we also wouldn't be using crop space for those. It would be wonderful to free up those fields for other crops since we now need so many for all the facilities!

Notice: Starting July 1st Facebook requires all users to purchase FarmCash with Facebook Credits. The process is very simple and secure.

Hi There,

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

1. Hire to work in multiple farms:

Oh this is great, thank you!

2. Drive Thru System (FC):

Had to have. Thank you!

3. 10 New crops and trees (Coming Tomorrow): Only the Ebony tree will have use for now. Next release will change this.

Ok good idea, thank you, but where are they? It is late tomorrow no new crops and no major glitches that I know of.


4. Tables and Chairs (FC):

Had to have.... thank you


6. Bulldozer 5 x 5 (FC): Allows you to delete 25 fields at once.

My wife and I have been begging for this... Thank you very much.

7. Instant Food Factory (coins): Produce Instant Food.

Yep had to have this one.... Thank you

8. Musical Instruments Factory (FC) (Coming Tomorrow): Produce Musical Instruments.

Looking forward to this one.

9. Snack Machines (coins): This is a Service Facility that can be stocked with the products below:

Oh I like the size of this. You can squeeze it in just about anywhere.

10. Modern School (FC): This is a Service Facility that can be stocked with the products below:

This was nice bought it completely filled it right up. :)

11. Stable Facility: Both Stables will be moved tomorrow to the Facility section. It will be an animal facility where you can harvest the hair of the horses used in the Musical Instruments Factory to make the violin bow.

Sounds good I had a stable that I bought a long time ago just for looks never stocked it with horses, guess I should have. Started stocking it now.

12. Other Improvements and Bug fixes:

Thank you for bug fixes.

In the next release we will add new products for existing facilities and use some of the new crops/trees.



Sounds Good thanks Raul

How are we to tell how close or even over 1 million coins in bonuses in the last 12 hours and when the 12 hours are up so we can accept more? I've lost bonuses because I wasn't eligible yet but then they are no good later!
And there is no notice in the bonus offer as to what the coin value is if we click it.

Also need a way to tell how much we can buy from a seller &/or how long we have to wait to be able to buy more. And how about increasing the limit from 1,000 to 2,500 or more?

The belt system that tells us how many to the next level belt doesn't take into account what we have already planted.

Enough with the petty (that's not a typo it is what they are) new facilities already that cost FC we can't earn leveling because we are level maxed out.

Fix these major shortcomings and give us MANY (100+) more levels! I, for one, am beginning to lose interest.

Besides more shrimp, we also need an increase in salmon and tuna. More facilites using these are being introduced but they will only go so far. We need these increased bad.

FT, you also keep adding Farmerade in service facilities and there is not enough being made to go to all of them. Please increase this also.

Ditto to the above, plus.. Beeswax too! I own two Bee farms, and I still never have enough Beeswax to meet the demand for the recent products added that require it. The Scented Candles alone use 3 Beeswax per 10 candles (one batch) to produce... and we only get a total of 50 Beeswax every six hours!

Sheep and Llamas... I have ten Wool sheds on ten farms, and again.. never have enough of either kind of wool to meet the demand for producing all the products using them. I have a ton of extra, loose sheep and llamas on most farms, to try to increase wool production -- which is slowing everything down, of course, and also makes planting and harvesting much more difficult. You know extra animals on farms make the game slow down, but won't resolve the wool issue for us. Please.. either greatly increase the limit of sheep and llamas in the sheds.. or let us have multiple wool sheds per farm.. or best of all -- change the time needed to harvest wool sheds! Once every 40 hours is not enough, and will never be enough for advanced players with lots of facilities.

Please keep up with this kind of issue, when you add new products to use existing ingredients. Increase production of that ingredient at the same time you add the new products that use it.

Moderators... S.O.S. :eek: Please find out ASAP what the difference is between the two stables? The obvious differences are how much Farm Cash each one costs, and what they look like. I'm thinking that is the whole difference, but just in case one holds more horses than the other... or, like the two flour windmills, one stable produces more product (or faster or whatever) than the other... we need to know! :D

There shouldn't be a difference in them other than the look and cost. Since they are both stables that hold horses the devs just didn't pick one and not the other to be harvest-able they made both harvest-able. All the animals buildings can only hold 100 of each type of animal. You only need 90 horse hairs to max out the facility so with 100 horses you can max out the violin and bow every 2 days. I think that will work for most people.

So is mine (Red Maple Tree free gift). I guess they'll tell us about that later? i don't remember seeing it mentioned in Raul's update message, but I could have missed it. I'm assuming the Red Maple can also be chopped, like the regular Maple tree.

On the subject of chopping trees... I planted approximately 1600 Ebony trees (which took me quite awhile). I was very happy to see them appear full grown, so I could chop them all together and start loading the wood into my four Sawmills right away. I was then very surprised... and confused... when I ran out of Ebony wood to load after only 90 batches in each of the four Sawmills. I have the upgraded fertilizer.. which gives me double harvests on trees. I forgot to even look for the (F) symbol over my new Ebony trees, but according to my mental math.. I did not get double harvests on this first batch. I hope it was just because they were newly planted... and not because of a glitch in these new trees. I'm just saying... :rolleyes:

Hmmm... Max, I'm thinking that Red Maples make sap for syrup in that other farming game... but in this one, I'm pretty sure they're chopping trees. ;) Someone please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

I'm now planting even more Ebony trees, added to the nearly 1600 I've already planted.. and seriously considering doing virtual harm to my avatar if she doesn't get out of my way while I'm planting them! :eek: (Hint for a future update...)

Also the FC buying system (I am not buying them all the time, though!) was changed and right now it is completely under control of FaceBook as well as earning free FC options. FaceBook is not a safe environment and faces to privacy claims very often.

I agree with you 100%, Nettie. Facebook has a lousy track record when it comes to privacy issues, and they are clearly making money from a ton of third parties who are very interested in obtaining our personal information. I believe it's a conflict of interest for Facebook to take over all purchases for games. I've spoken out often on this subject here in the forums. However, I don't think Slashkey or other game developers had a choice in this matter. Facebook undoubtedly told them it's their way, or the highway.

I can't say I won't buy anymore Farm Cash, but I won't buy it using my real identity or real financial information. The Facebook Credit gift cards are not easy to find.. and are not in my local Walmart stores, as Facebook claimed they would be. They are only sold in Target stores right now.

Thanks for the update, but no thanks, not interested in anymore facillities, except for the snack machine and instant food factory but only because i already make the things needed to fill them to refer them to clients but i won't be purchasing anymore. I am one of those who is bored with having new facillities all the time. Also I noticed that you have got a tool called table and chairs and a drive through system that enables us to start all productions with one click on 7 restaurants and 8 fast food facillities but each of these cost 35 farm cash won't be purchasing these either, wouldn't of minded paying 35 farm cash if the tool enabled us to start production with one click for all facillities but these two and the bottling machine from last update means a total of 105 farm cash and thats still not all the factorys covered. I will continue to click one at a time thank you but I am sure there are a lot of people playing who are willing to pay for all 3 but not me. I am a long time player and will continue to play every day but I just wish we could stay clear of new facillities for a while and have some of the other suggestions added to the game. Thanks for fixing some of the bugs and enabling us to hire multi that is a great help. :)

I agree totally, the game is moving away from what attracted me to it in the first place, would have loved to have seen more decorations etc, would love to be able to change the sizes of some items because you just can't put some items next to others cos the proportions are all wrong. I am so bored of the facillities now it tired and old, I know you can't please everyone but it seems the only ones being please are those who like the facillities. :( Come on make some changes to things we already have and add new products to existing facillities instead of adding new ones, oh but wait thats not gonna happen right because you won't be earning any fc unless you keep adding new facillities that cost real money. Shame theres a lot of improvements that could be made to what you have already given us shame you can't balance both. :)

I agree with Earlgray....that is a good idea to use the horse hair but VERY mean to only make it available on FC and not coins. All other animal facilities are on coins so this is very disappointing. PLEASE bring lime trees out soon and new animals/uses for more animals like duck eggs. Also maybe a nother 2 hour crop as thewre is only rasps for 2 hours and it would be good to have more variety. Otherwise brilliant update : )

I agree they should have a horse-stable that you can buy with coins but certainly not the ones that you have to buy with FC that would be unfair to the people who have been playing FT for a very long time and have bought these.

I agree... but if the devs see fit to have a coin stable, it should have limits that make it "less" a producer than a $FT stable... like maybe only 10 or 20 horses.

that would help the coin only buyers without diminishing the efforts of the $FT buyers

Just a quick observation, why does only one of the stables show up in the facilities manager? I have one of each of the stables and only the white stable shows up in the FM.

only 1 will show up if u have them on the same farm

if you have them on seperate farms they will boith show

The Red Maple trees (giftable only it appears) - are they producing now, or is that for a later update?

Have I told you lately how much I just <3 FT and the Devs? And yes I am so addicted I best run back to the market to get a 'fix' before someone needs to dial FT911 for me :)

you can harvest/chop the red maple or juniper but there harvest is not used for any current facility

How many degrees of Dan are there? For "Dan degrees, or for levels of belts," how long does it take before one might see a result of "finding additional boxes" of a harvest?
6 degrees of Dan belts. When posted to your wall when you receive a new belt...your neighbors utilizing the products will in turn send products to your (gift box).

I realize the Red Maples are not used right now in a facility. But just like other trees we have they still produce. My question is are these trees once planted will they produce because I do not see where any % of how far along they are in growing. :)

I only have the brown stables, and it doesn't show up in my facilities manager. Also, of my two rabbit hutches, only one shows up in the facilities manager. Don't know if it makes a difference, but the one that shows up is the second one I added, but the first isn't there. I just have to remember to check it manually, same as I do the stables.

I'm having the same problem. The only thing that changed for me is the Red Maples now showing a % of completion towards harvesting. Prior that wasn't working. After doing all the refreshing, deleting, rebooting I still can't get the horse stable to show up in mine either. With the rabbit hutch I had to buy the second one in order for the first one to show up - I am not doing this with the horse stable, I already paid my FC a long time ago for it when I started storing my camels in there. :(

Thank you Developers! You have a fantastic game and it keeps getting better.

I adore most of the fixes and updates EXCEPT for the fact that by the time we're through we'll have to buy countless facilities/tools in order to speed up the ordering process. Even then, we still have to click on each and every item in every facility. I have well over 100 and really expected to see a STORE ALL that we could do with ONE click for ALL facilities.

I don't see where the limited new "speed-up" options are worth the real cash we have to spend on them. Each one is only good for a few facilities and what are we really saving in time? If it takes only 2-3 clicks on an item it isn't worth real money to save 1-2 clicks. I might have considered purchasing some of these tools IF ONE click would fill the facility. Why not have a FILL ALL button?

We DESPERATELY need a STORE ALL button on the facility manager to store EVERYTHING at once from ALL facilities. THAT I would be willing to pay for.

At the rate we're going we're going to have to spend hundreds in farm cash and not really speed things up that much. And it still doesn't address the hours it takes to empty the facilities. PLEASE don't offer us 10 different tools to empty these facilities. We need to do it all at once.

I have a problem. I already had two stables with horses in them. Then today I did not find them in my list with other facilities in the facility manager. I bought a third stable (same as the two others) and that one is in the facility list and I can harvest the horses there. For the first two I have to go to the farm they are one to harvest manually. IS THIS NORMAL??? Pls advise and fix this problem.
Thanks in advance

I agree... but if the devs see fit to have a coin stable, it should have limits that make it "less" a producer than a $FT stable... like maybe only 10 or 20 horses.

that would help the coin only buyers without diminishing the efforts of the $FT buyers

Thank you for the new 3x3 tree shaker. It helped alot compared to doing them one by one. Is there any way we could get a 3x3 log truck for coins too?

Also I see you added a new nylon reel to the petrochemical plant. This will just never fly. Despite tweaking the productions in the oil refinery already, I still can only get the petro plant to around 10% or much less capacity BEFORE the nylon reel was added. You guys need to extremely boost the oil refinery production again. I have oil pumps on all 10 farms but i can only put about 4 barrels of it into production a day on the oil refinery into each the fuel cans and petro barrels.
Please extremely boost the oil refinery production again so we can max out the petro plant. Its a shame to have to have so many crude oil barrels left over and have to sell them off when they should be able to fit in refinery, or refinery make enough prduct to fill up the petro plant.

Hello,

Only the Ebony tree is used at the moment. The Juniper definitely doesn't chop, whether it will produce fruit when it has reached 100% growth, i cant say until it's grown. It could be just decor. That may change in a future release, but only the devs know for sure.

How much fuel do you have? I don't make fuel because I have 2.5 million units of fuel right now and it will be a while before I need fuel again. I have some fuel stored for the next refill and will make some more once I get closer. If you do that you will have more crude oil to put in your refinery for petro barrels.

My concern about not being able to hide evergreens is they can get in the way when farming and fishing, which means you then have to hide each one manually. I already have this problem with some of the holiday trees that can't be hidden

Well with 10 oil pumps i have way more than enough crude barrels to max out my oil refinery. However it only takes about 4 barrels of crude for gas and 4 barrels for petro barrel. I have about 30 some extra crude oil berrels left over every day that goes to waste and i just sell it cause it wont fit into the refinery.

The problem lies within the refineries output. The oil refinery does not produce enough of anything without being able to have neighbors work it on myspace. If it werent for the fact that there are a lot of gift sites out there to give me extra fuel ide be running out of gas all the time, but anyhow due to that- im ok on gas. (but only thanks to the available gift sites found online)

The petro barrels are what the most major problem is. The oil refinery only produces about 12 of them a day and now that has to be split into 5 different products in the petrochemical plant. The petro chem plant never really goes above 10% of full capacity - usually much lower.....

Really???? I have oil wells on all 10 farms and a total of 2 oil refineries and keep my petrochemical plant maxed at all times. Since the last time they increased the production on those, I haven't had a problem since. I don't understand why you are only at 10%. Maybe you just need a second refinery. I have all 10 wells, both refineries AND the petrochemical plant 100% maxed at all times and still have plenty to spare.

If you don't mind having snow on top of your Evergreens, there are the holiday winter trees that don't hide unless you do it one at a time. I have a bunch of them on my holiday-theme farm. There are sites online that still offer these winter Evergreen trees.. but I don't think I'm allowed to say any more than that here. ;)

As it is right now, the list is too bulky, can't see properly who is online or not, can't see if they are working their farm or if they stopped playing, can't organize it at all. I know I'm not the only one frustrated about this. Thank you.

Those are good ideas, but you have to plan all of that stuff to begin with, so why bother?

I don't understand what you mean. You have to plan everything in this game to begin with. If you don't plan what to grow then you don't have what you need to put in facilities. That's what makes this game so much better than any other. You have an actual challenge instead of just mindless clicking.
I love the idea of the silos being made into the same type of facility as the mines. I never have enough wheat, rice, etc. I have 7 planting farms and can't keep up with these grains. Great suggestion!

Thank you for getting rid of the annoying pop-ups about axe and fishing rod. Now please get rid of the ones that tell me how to pan my farm, etc. It is far more efficient for me to use the arrows and minimise/expand buttons you have provided. It's frustrating to be told every time that I can do this with a method that is actually less efficient on my computer! Perhaps these pop-ups can be scheduled to stop after the second time they have come up on a farm?

I had this happening to me and finally used the mouse once. It seemed to get rid of the pop up. Hope it works for you.

That's awful! No help by friends working your facilities on Myspace? :eek: You need to pack up your things and move to Farm Town on Facebook! I don't think people understand what you're saying. Your Oil Processing facility is overfilled with production... because the regular six hour time is much too slow to be useful. Facebook players depend on friends working our facilities, and I have the same wish for our Oil Pumps. My problem is not enough Oil Barrels, ever, to keep refilling the Petrochemical Plant. I also have ten Oil Pumps going, and since friends can't work those, it takes forever to build up enough Oil Barrels to fill the Petrochemical Plant. In the recent update, as you said.. Nylon Reels were added.. along with new products requiring (more) Plastic Granules. I'm no longer even bothering with Fuel production. Everything will now go into Petrochemical Barrels.

I love the update. :D The improvements in working facilities and ability to hire for multiple farms are long-awaited dreams come true.

There is one problem, which might be a glitch... or might have been a deliberate change. I own the Mobile Sprinkler and Flower Harvester tools. I've always been able to water flowers for my friends that hire me to do whatever jobs on their farms.. whether flowers were included or not. Since the update, the Mobile Sprinkler is grayed out in my toolbox when a friend hires me.. even if I'm hired to harvest flowers (when the flowers are still alive, but thirsty). If their flowers have withered, they can't hire me to harvest them until they're watered; and they don't always know if the flowers are ready to harvest until I water them. Bottom line.. the only way I can do flowers for a friend who hires me now, is to arrive first as a neighbor.. water all flowers on all farms that have flowers... and then they can hire me to harvest flowers. It's very inconvenient -- and I have to explain this whole thing to everyone now.

I know we were never supposed to be able to water flowers for anyone but neighbors (or is it friends..?) -- but please find a way to re-activate the Mobile Sprinkler tool for those of us who own it, when we are hired to work on someone's farms. Thanks! :)

Edit: I just realized that the problem I've described above is only when we're hired to do multiple jobs. The Mobile Sprinkler is still active when I'm hired to do a single farm job.. because the one-row extension of the toolbox is there, and that includes the active sprinkler tool. Since the update, with the automatic opening of the extended toolbox during multi-hire, the Mobile Sprinkler tool remains grayed out. So it's definitely a glitch.. which I hope you'll fix soon.

Thanks for posting this. I came to the forum to post exactly this. I don't think I could have explained it as well. I really do miss being able to water my neighbor's flowers while I'm working for them!

Besides more shrimp, we also need an increase in salmon and tuna. More facilites using these are being introduced but they will only go so far. We need these increased bad.

FT, you also keep adding Farmerade in service facilities and there is not enough being made to go to all of them. Please increase this also.

I agree about the fish. Never ever have enough salmon, but for some reason I seem to always have tons of tuna. I don't have enough canned tuna though ever. I have plenty of farmerade since i bought a second soda factory but now I never have enough sugar. I'd love to see a larger sugar facility like the big windmill for flour.

Yes, or just make it longer to harvest, since it seems that all the animal houses have 100 animals and people probably need that if they're going to use the facility that needs horse hair.

I agree. For the first time, I truly feel that the outlay of Farm Cash is not worth it. I've never had a problem with some items being available only with a cash purchase, but the idea that you have to purchase, separately, tools that only work for certain facilities, is just greedy. This is a bad, bad sign. The one request that is being ignored over and over and over again is the stated need for a "store all" option that will empty ALL facilities with one click. We purchased the forklift, which was an improvement, and I'm sure an upgrade to that tool which will empty all facilities will cost farm cash. But please don't nickel and dime us (or $5-$10 us is more like it) like you have done with the "fill all" option. This is just gouging, plain and simple.

I know but I can't find anywhere on FB where you can enter the card code to be able to use them.

Also this is what I find on FB in the credit help section...

What are the default payment methods that PayPal will draw from to pay for Facebook Ads?
PayPal will fund the Facebook ads payment from the payment sources on file in the order below. You can make changes and designates a specific payment method as the "Backup Funding Source".

1) PayPal Balance will always be the Primary Funding Source.
2) Instant transfer from your bank account (if eligible)
3) PayPal Credit (Bill Me Later, PayPal Plus Card, or Buyer Credit)
4) Debit card
5) Credit card


So they LIED about using your paypal balance as the primary source...geeez what else is new. Nothing like trying to get us more in debt.

The thing is I have all the REAL money I need but no way to spend it on this game....and I will NEVER get a credit card.
