See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Changes at the end of this post. Last changes released at April 2nd, 12:30AM EST.

Hi There,

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

1. 6 new St Patrick's Items

2. 25 New Levels: Top level will be 525. After level 500 we will not show level names anymore.

3. 38 x 38 Farm Expansions for farms 11 - 20: 30 FarmCash OR 20,000,000,000 coins

4. More Mayor Help when working neighbours facilities:

a) If you have 2 or more trains dispatched with 10 freight cars on each train the Mayor will complete all farms for you without you needing to navigate to each farm
b) If you do not meet the requirement in a) then the Mayor will still help you with 25 - 40% of the workable farms only when there are at least 3 workable farms

5. Hiring Improvements:

a) Employers now have the option to share their fuel with their employees. Employees fuel will always be used first if available, when they run out of fuel employers fuel will be used at that point.
b) The 2 x 1 Harvester and Seeder were still consuming fuel despite a change we did a few weeks ago, they shouldn't anymore, this should help new users work faster when hired

6. Tower Crane (FC): This tool will allow you to add items to your Item Storage in bulk, by type or category similar to the Excavator.

7. The Excavator tool now works with animals as well

8. Earn Farm Cash while completing Quests: Here are the rules:

- Earn 1 FarmCash if you have completed at least 3 quests in the last 7 days
- Earn 2 FarmCash if you have completed at least 8 quests in the last 7 days, this is difficult, only about a 1000 users have done it in the past week, and is more difficult to do continuously

Once you get your FarmCash, you'll have to wait at least 7 days to qualify for more FarmCash rewards. In other words, if you play frequently you should be able to win 1 or 2 FarmCash a week.

These rules may change in the future, specially if we do more changes to the Quests functionality.

9. Automated new level rewards: When users reach a new level instead of a message box mentioning the unlocked items we will show a modified version of the Store with all the unlocked items in that level as well as the new items you can send as gifts to friends.

We also added a new 'Current Level Only' filter in the Store that will only show the items unlocked at your current level, categories with no items unlocked will be disabled.

10. General Improvements and bug fixes, some of them were launched a couple of weeks ago:

a) When boosting friend trains you can now select friends from 3 lists: My Neighbours, Farmers Helping Me and Farmtown Players
b) When unloading and dispatching a train, the 'Boost Train!' button shows up right away without you having to re-open the Train Manager
c) The Add Neighbour functionality from the main game neighbour bar was not working for some users
d) When Rotating items, if the new rotated view was placed in the same position that the item was before the rotate operation did not work. This happened with the Switch Views as well. This error was very likely to show up when rotating train freight cars and locomotives which are likely to be placed on the same position when rotated
e) When loading the game, if there was a belt bonus pending you got the Message Box but a click in the green tick to post did nothing, this should now be fixed

11. Production Increases: We duplicated the output of the Food Flavoring Factory and the Food Coloring Factory so you can still fill up your Fancy Food Show service facility and have enough to produce the Syrups in the new Syrup Factory.

12. Syrup Factory (FC): Produces Syrups.

Lemon Syrup
Orange Syrup
Mint Syrup
Vanilla Syrup
Strawberry Syrup
Cherry Syrup
Pineapple Syrup
Coconut Syrup

New Products in other facilities: Strawberry, Cherry, Pineapple and Coconut Extracts in the Food Flavoring Factory.

13. Frozen Treats Factory (Coins): Produces Frozen Treats.

Cherry Freeze Pop
Orange Freeze Pop
Fusion Freeze Pop
Grape Popsicle
Watermelon Popsicle
Fusion Popsicle
Fusion-3 Popsicle

14. Shaved Ice Cart (FC): Produces Shaved Ice.

Cherry Snow Cone
Strawberry Snow Cone
Sour Rainbow
Lava Rainbow
Rockin Rainbow
Hula Rainbow
Tropical Rainbow
Breeze Rainbow

15. Lunch Truck (Coins): Provides Food Transport and Selling Services and can be stocked with the following products:

Gyros Sandwich
White pizza
Instant Rice
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Instant Mushroom Noodles
Pancakes and Bacon
Grape Popsicle
Watermelon Popsicle
Fusion Popsicle
Fusion-3 Popsicle

Enjoy!

Post Release Updates - March 14th, 6:55PM EST

- The mayor help feature is not working as expected, among other things, it is currently working all facilities (service, factories and non-workable) at once, it is supposed to only work on the one type you were hired for, as it has always been.

Post Release Updates - March 14th, 10:45PM EST

- The mayor should now work only the facilities that it's supposed to work, the ones you were hired for. If you continue seeing the 'Oops you already worked...." message please report it on this thread.

- The mayor was also incorrectly working the animal buildings, which had the side effect of having wrong harvest dates on the facility manager for some animal buildings. You may have also end up with some animal buildings on your harvest storage, if this is the case please report it here. You can just sell those buildings.

Post Release Updates - March 15th, 4:00AM EST

- Just some more information on the 2 issues above. We decided to not change the color of the farms that the mayor work from blue to green just in case you still want to navigate to them to do the Service Facilities manually (assuming you were hired to work the regular facilities). You can share your feedback if you see any issues with this approach.

- The animal building harvest dates in the facility manager will not be fixed immediately, you will have to wait until you harvest them again

Post Release Updates - March 19th, 5:00AM EST

- After many hours trying to find a workaround for the friend request issues in IE and Firefox, Facebook finally released a fix today or reverted back what they did before, we will continue monitoring.

- The sharing employers fuel is now working when employees use the harvest-plow combines

Post Release Updates - March 19th, 10:37PM EST

- Fixed the "Oops ..." message when mayor working facilities
- When working facilities, farms worked by the mayor are now colored dark blue. As usual, farms worked by you will be dark green and pending farms to be worked, light blue
- When employees select a tool that require fuel the fuel icon will be shown on the top left corner
- When leveling up, you will not lose your context after checking the unlocked items, ex: if you were planting you will be able to continue planting immediately, same tool, same seeds, etc.
- More information provided in the scenario where you click on a facility post and when you land in the farm
you are not actually hired and can't work the facilities

Post Release Updates - March 20th, 4:00AM EST

- Fixed more issues related to Mayor working facilities

Post Release Updates - March 24th, 7:50PM EST

- You can now earn FarmCash while completing quests, see full details in the main post, above.

Post Release Updates - March 24th, 10:10PM EST

- I forgot to mention about a fix in my previous post. When you landed on a farm to work friends facilities sometime you were unable to work because the game incorrectly said you have to be friend with the owner of the farm (you really were friends), this error may still not be fixed 100% but it should be very rare now.

Post Release Updates - March 26th, 2:10AM EST

- We released a fix that should help with people getting the 'I just sent 0 products to your storage!' message from the Mayor even when the facilities had productions going at the time. Please report if this is not the case, or if the 'You have to be friends...' message returns for some reason.

- Quests buttons are now named 'Collect Coins' and 'Collect FarmCash' for easier understanding

Post Release Updates - March 26th, 2:30PM EST

- You can buy again giftable flowers on the Store
- All users that haven't collected the FarmCash for completing quests should at least see now the 'Quests completed in the last 7 days' message along with the 'Collect FarmCash' button in black (or in blue if the collection is already available)

Post Release Updates - April 1st, 7:00AM EST

- New levels launched, remember, after level 500 we will not show level names anymore.
- Easter items, 3 as gifts, 5 in the top section and 10 in the bottom section of the Store Easter category.

Post Release Updates - April 2nd, 12:30AM EST

- Rice Barn is now available for purchase (decor building, level 513)
- A new Easter Garden item at the bottom of the Easter category

Known Issues:

- Some facebook responses are currently failing and causing the 'You have to be friends...' message to show up incorrectly sometimes when working neighbour facilities

It looks like I can't work neighbors' client referrals after working their factories--I get the pop-up telling me that I've already worked them today. Is this a bug, or have we finally gotten smart and combined working referrals with working factories?

9. Automated new level rewards: When users reach a new level instead of a message box mentioning the unlocked items we will show a modified version of the Store with all the unlocked items in that level as well as the new items you can send as gifts to friends.

You have taken away the choice whether I want to post my new level, I now have to click cancel not to post my new level. Not fond of it going into the modified version of the store, there should be a choice to turn this option off and bring back the choice as to whether I want to post my new level. When I am working on my farm I just want to click to close the notice of my new level and continue on working.

Hi Rob, I have one train with over 10 cars and one with 3 cars and I just went to work your facilities, and the Mayor worked the last 2 farms for me, I only had to work 4 out of 6 :)Hi, do you have atleast 10 cars on 2 of the trains, if you have 30 cars spread out over 5 trains, and only like 6 cars each train, then no, it will not work.

I noticed that the send ingredient option is now capped at $5M along with the amount of bonus ingredients you can claim. Hope this isn't true. Is this just happening only to me?

Mar 14 2014, 08:35 AM
Whoa .. I love, love, love #4. More Mayor Help when working neighbors facilities!

I was just working someones facilities. The mayor automatically whisked me through the farms, after I finished over 1/2 of them, and gave me the items. Boy, that saves me a lot of travel time.. ha, ha, ha...

I might buy more trains after all .. money permitting, or course.

That in itself makes having to wait for the update worthwhile! (grins)

There was always a cap on ingredient requests and bonus posts depending on your level. The top was 5 million coins. Below is from the game guide, which also comes from the New Release of December 30th 2011.

Currently you can earn up to 1,000,000 coins every 12 hour from Ingredient Posts and another 1,000,000 coins every 12 hour from Bonus Posts. You can post 5 bonus belts in 12 hours.

For users in higher levels instead of 1,000,000 this limit will be increased as follows:

Levels 100-199 - 3,000,000 coins
Levels 200-299 - 4,000,000 coins
Levels 300-399 - 5,000,000 coins

These are probably incorrect, but I can only go by what the game guide says.

Thank you - like the Tower Crane just what we asked for. Like the train idea but it seems a bit hit and miss. I have all 5 locomotives but do not have 10 cars on one train - one I have 11 and another 8. I just tried to work a neighbours facilities - The Mayor worked all the facilities on the first 7 farms but I had to navigate to each one, THEN the Mayor started taking me automatically through the last 7 without me having to move.
I then went to work the same Farmers Services - I got a message on every farm that I had already worked on those facilities - but I hadnt - only the ordinary Facilities NOT the Services ones.
I will try again when I see a post from someone and re-arrange my trains when they all return but it looks as if there is a glitch stopping us from working the ordinary Facilities and Services. I have no way of knowing if the first pass when I thought I was working the Facilities also worked the Services.

I hope this makes sense!!

Was hoping for some more decoration items to be in this release, will have to put another post in the suggestions section again.

EDIT:



It seems this only works after you have navigated to the 3rd farm and worked that farm, then it does the rest of the farms.

EDIT AGAIN: I just noticed a typo, I hope, it says in the quote (see the bold wording), is it 10 freight cars total on all trains or 10 freight cars on each train.
-----------------------------------------------------
So if i understand this -- i have to buy 8 more trains and another engine to get they mayor to do all the farms with 1 click.. that's comes out to about 315 farm-cash... please tell me this can't be right..

If you don't have 2 trains that has 10 freight cars each, then yes you would have to purchase more freight cars and anther train if you don't have 2, cause now to work facilities with one click while on the 1st farm you have to have 20 freight cars, 10 freight cars each on 2 trains or you have to work at least half of the facilities or more. That is why I am staying at having to work at least half of the facilities, I can't waste that much FC on freight cars I don't need. If they are going to do this, then they need to bring out more freight cars with other items that is needed.

I love the new crane tool. That in itself has made this update worth the wait for me. As for the 10 cars on 2 trains, no, I don't need to be lazy that badly! Either lower the cost of the cars, or give us more incentive to part with that kind of farm cash, in addition to what we have to use for new facilities and services, farm expansions (except for the farmers with 100's of billions of coins) and other new tools. Generally, the concept of being able to work all farms in one click is appealing to the vast majority of us, but the feedback suggests the cost involved is a major downfall. Oh well. I will keep farm hopping for a while longer. :)

EDIT

Re the Services problem. I tried to work Services again after working Facs. 12 Farms. It wouldnt let me work again on the ones that the Mayor had zoomed me through but the ones I had manually navigated to it let me work. So It looks as if when the Mayor automatically goes from farm to farm he maybe works Facs and Services. And same thing happened again - got half way through the services and the mayor said because I had been such a hard worker her would work the rest for me and started zooming through the last half of the farms

/\ this. very aggravating to have the store popup while you're seeding. and if i hadn't cancelled full screen before doing facilities, i wouldn't have known that the level up post (that i never want) was pending and would have cancelled any belt bonus post i'd wanted to do.

-------
also: i'm very confused about the mayor helping when you don't have any trains. he now does 25-40% of the work for you?? how is that better than before when he did 50% of the work (if there were over 3 facilities)?

why have you never addressed the problem from last "new release" yet...you said in your post that the eye clinic could be purchased with coins, but it is in the market for FC...so 3 of the new facilities from last release were for FC instead of the normal 2 from FC and 2 from coins...I don't have spare FC to toss around...but I have plenty of coins at present....thank you:o

No way that I will spend that much money just to save a few clicks; especially since I have to hunt down the few farmtown posts that facebook is showing in the feed or from people on my farmtown list.

Well my limit is 7 million. I think (dangerous, I know) that when you hit level 400, it goes to 6 million, and when you hit level 500 it goes to 7 million.

I would also like to buy more than 6500 twice a day from neighbors. If the devs could raise these levels just for neighbors as a bonus above a stranger in the market place.

I agree it comes out to $60.00 to get 8 trains and 1 engine more if you have to buy more trains... that is a lot of real cash that many can't afford these days. i understand they need cash to run the game.. however you know you will get more to spend money on you game if you offer a break... or make it less trains. people need to buy all the tools as well. less is always more, folks love to see sales.. 5 to 10 off trains when you buy 1 train you get 5 off on the next train or engine.. and when you go to buy the 3rd train a month from now it will carry over and save 5 fc.. no more then one month.. if you buy all at once you get even a better break off...if you buy 5 or more trains 15 fc off 4 trains when you buy 5 trains all at once ... that way so many will buy them to save and you would make triple or more on these sale offers...

For the past week, I have been unable to send gifts to fellow FT players or my neighbors. Since this is something I do regularly, I find it very frustrating. I use the browser Internet Explorer and Chrome and downloaded FireFox. None work! am also unable to boost my trains.!!!!!
Chrome does work for sending gifts and for boosting the trains. I f your Chrome is not working check to see if it needs updating.

Thanks Raul!! Lot's of improvements this time around. I really like that having two trains with ten long cars on each, the mayor will go to all farms for us. I have rheumatoid arthritis which when you improve the game to include less clicking is so great. Thank you for being so dedicated, and making FT the best game out there. Thanks again from my wife and I. :)

that would help.... or perhaps more Dan Bonus Levels to help stockpile.

I picked up 26 X bonus Petrol Barrels at 32 each this morning, but will probably use them up in short order when I post farms later today.

Maybe a special train freight car with a big load of Petro only


maybe this and similar posts should be moved to the suggestions... sorry 'bout that

Has anyone else noticed when harvesting with the harvest all tool it doesn't harvest all, like not all my dairy sheds or chicken coops show the time to the next harvest. When I click on them it says nothing to harvest even if I go to the farm and click the item. Don't know if it harvesting and not showing or not harvesting

I have a Mac. The Gifts sending is broken for Safari too. Some farmers are able to send gifts while others can't. I have not seen this mentioned any place. Please forgive me if I am duplicating this comment. Also point me to the post and its response, please.

Thank you,

Since the update, in my facility manage, my sheds are not showing correcly. Some are showing they should be harvested, but not ready yet. My semi says its at 45% but I have just filled it up completely. Guess they are all bugs that will be sorted soon. Love the rest of the update.

With the Mayor help though, I have 10 cars over 2 trains, if I buy additional cars will that get me more help? or do I have to buy 10 more cars to get any extra help?

4. More Mayor Help when working neighbours facilities:

a) If you have 2 or more trains dispatched with 10 freight cars on each train the Mayor will complete all farms for you without you needing to navigate to each farm
b) If you do not meet the requirement in a) then the Mayor will still help you with 25 - 40% of the workable farms only when there are at least 3 workable farms

the update message about what the mayor is doing is confusing but when i did neighbor's facility posts this morning, i was pleasantly surprised that he did some farms for me.

i have no trains and tried doing some regular first, then service; some service first and then regular - didn't have the problem where i was told they were done already.

however, one neighbor has services on 2,4,5 and (due to the slippery nature of the farm chooser) i went to farm 3 instead of 4. when i got to 4, the mayor immediately said he'd do the last farm for me. i suspected that farm 4 hadn't been done but going to 5 and then back to 4 gave me "that's it" messages on both farms.

after rebooting the game, i could do farm 4 ok.

Let me take it back the Crane tool is not so fantastic. Raul any reason why the crane tool is moving the items onto the harvest side of the store. I don't want to sell the items i want to move them to another farm so this tool is useless for me as all the items on my farms are for production. So basically if you select an item and the select say all the flowers you can not re-use them, what a waste of 50 FC

Be aware, the ingredients used in the new factories / service that use preexisting items are not automatically checked - for example, the gyro sandwich is not checked now so you have to go to each factory and make sure that the product is checked so it will be made when you do a start all.
It's not clear if the shaved ice cart is a factory or a service so i'm putting it in with my factories.
Love the one click for working friend's factories/services. I already have 3 trains with 11 cars on each one. Those of you who don't have 10 cars on 2 trains, please don't complain. It's part of building your farm empire just like upgrading your tools.

The Send Gifts, Invites, Add Neighbours and Train Boost request dialogs are not working in Firefox and Internet Explorer since facebook last changes past Tuesday. While we wait on a fix, you can use Google Chrome to play Farmtown which looks like it doesn't have the problem.

I just worked a neighbour's farm, and the additional help from the Major is much appreciated, and fab to watch when he does the last few farms for you.

One of the Devs' best new features - well done!!!

:)

And anyone moaning about FT not working in IE... it's not Slashkey's fault, more of an issue for Facebook.

That aside, IE is a rubbish, bloaty browser; Chrome beats the pants off it for speed and efficiency every time.

I just used it to store flowers and they went to the items part of storage. You will see the harvested flowers in the Harvest side as the harvest of those items. Look in the Item storage with the filter set to flowers and you should see the plants to be reused.

Do the cars on the trains have to be the ones that actually pick up materials in order to have the added help on neighbor's farms? I have one with 10 working cars, and several trains with 2 or more cars that collect. It's expensive to buy all the cars that cost actual coins.

Even if you don't have a train you still get the minimum benefit from the mayor working part of it.
Can't say yet on the other facilities as mine are too low to tell from a post last night, but we will check on this.

Yes they do. You need 2 trains with 10 cars on each of those trains for the 100% work by mayor.

I just worked the facilities and services of one person. I have only 1 train with 10 cars. After 6 farms, the Mayor started helping. When I started the services, the first farm said that I had already worked it, the other 2 let me work them. Is there a reason that either both posts won't be worked all the way or why just one of the service farms was worked?

Whoa .. I love, love, love #4. More Mayor Help when working neighbors facilities!

I was just working someones facilities. The mayor automatically whisked me through the farms, after I finished over 1/2 of them, and gave me the items. Boy, that saves me a lot of travel time.. ha, ha, ha...

I might buy more trains after all .. money permitting, or course.

That in itself makes having to wait for the update worthwhile! (grins)

Ummmm . . . yeah. I just anted up for 3 extra cars that I have absolutely no need for. I'm actually sort of in awe of the developers for continuing to think of things that we can't POSSIBLY live without. ;)

This is because, when the Mayor goes and works the other farms, he doesn't just work the regular ones, but he also does the services and non workable too :)Thank you - like the Tower Crane just what we asked for. Like the train idea but it seems a bit hit and miss. I have all 5 locomotives but do not have 10 cars on one train - one I have 11 and another 8. I just tried to work a neighbours facilities - The Mayor worked all the facilities on the first 7 farms but I had to navigate to each one, THEN the Mayor started taking me automatically through the last 7 without me having to move.
I then went to work the same Farmers Services - I got a message on every farm that I had already worked on those facilities - but I hadnt - only the ordinary Facilities NOT the Services ones.
I will try again when I see a post from someone and re-arrange my trains when they all return but it looks as if there is a glitch stopping us from working the ordinary Facilities and Services. I have no way of knowing if the first pass when I thought I was working the Facilities also worked the Services.

I hope this makes sense!!

The following "Non Workable" facs of mine were filled and together with a neighbour we ran an experiment. The Mayor worked some of them but not all of them. Only the Semi-Trailer Truck was not worked.
There is no mention in the update that I could see that said this would now occur so am presuming its a glitch.
I too have noticed when doing facs that just occasionally I get the "oops you already worked this farm" but the Mayor will go on and to all the others. I have 2 trains both of which have 10 cars on each. So Mayor is doing all farms except for the occasional glitch.
Thought I should report it as it happened a few times .... but not all the time.

Another thing is that my mayor seems to have just pooped out. I started working a neighbor's facilities who has them on all 20 farms and after I worked the first 4, I didn't get anything for the rest. The mayor didn't work them for me and if I went there, I would get the message that there were 'x' number to work, but when I clicked, I never got my goodies. Hope they can get the mayor all fixed back up soon. This is a COOL feature! I'll be working lots more neighbors' farms now.

- The mayor should now work only the facilities that it's supposed to work, the ones you were hired for. If you continue seeing the 'Oops you already worked...." message please report it on this thread.

- The mayor was also incorrectly working the animal buildings, which had the side effect of having wrong harvest dates on the facility manager for some animal buildings. You may have also end up with some animal buildings on your harvest storage, if this is the case please report it here. You can just sell those buildings.

2. 25 New Levels (coming in about 2 weeks): Top level will be 525. After level 500 we will not show level names anymore.

*** I cannot seem to find the 6 new St Patrick's Items ...
AND
*** It seems as if the paltry 25 levels every 3 months have been closer to 4 months .... it's sad that the 25 FC cannot buy EVEN ONE THING .... but now we end up waiting longer than anticipated/normal ....
AND
*** I had to break down and buy 3 more stinkin' Long Freight Cars (which I DID NOT NEED NOR WANT) in order to reap the benefits of the Mayor working them. I am not happy about spending that money, but HAD to -- the time it takes to load some of these overly crowded, horrendously layered farms makes it almost necessary. I have 4 trains going now ... which already had cars I didn't really need - I really wish that what we receive from each car could be worked on .... or added to.

Other than that, it was a decent release. Not bad, but not so great either. Maybe I am just getting bored, and need to take a bit of a break. I will putz around till the new levels, then decide.

Thanks for listening !

Post Release Updates - March 15th, 4:00AM EST

- Just some more information on the 2 issues above. We decided to not change the color of the farms that the mayor work from blue to green just in case you still want to navigate to them to do the Service Facilities manually (assuming you were hired to work the regular facilities). You can share your feedback if you see any issues with this approach.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I appreciate the logic behind this but I think its confusing - it looks as it they havent been worked at all I think its better changing them to green to be honest

Thanks Raul for some more great items but since this new update came out I have been losing things. Yesterday all my cows milk vanished and today I harvested pine trees for a quest but there were none in my storage.
I have done all the usual things like cleaning the mem cache but no good.

Regarding the sending of gifts and boosting trains problem....

I have 2 accounts, I've used Chrome for both, 1 is sending gifts via the drop down list that I made ok, and I managed to send out a request to boost my train ok too. But the other account ( still on Chrome ) will only send gifts by clicking on each one separately, if I try to use my pre made list it won't work at all. Can't say about my train as it's not ready to go out again yet.

The problem doesn't only seem to be with what browser you're using but also each individual account.

I've noticed with mine that it has been telling me what the previous farm I was at needs. For example I was at farm 13. It needed fertilized and the spreader said so. I fertilized, planted and moved to farm 14.....which did NOT need fertilized yet the spreader told me it needed fertilized.

Not really that annoying as I use the colors of the squares to tell me if I need to fertilize. :)

When working Clients, and the mayor says moving to next farm, I will get my xp points for the other farms without moving to the next farm. I double check anyway the clients and they are finished.

But when working 'working facilities', has soon as the mayor say moving to farm, I get the xp points for that farm, but not for the others, so I check the others, and I have to do the rest one by one, but the mayor will say that's it and the farms have all finished.

Is this the way that all the farms will work now or is it a glitch with the working facilities and eventually it will be the same as the clients?

Not sure if it has to do with the new release or the FB change. It used to be when you sent a new friend a neighbor request from the My Neighbors screen...their color around their name would turn yellow. It is staying white now. I'm not sure if they are showing on my neighbor bar or not. So many do not use their own names on their farm.

Thank you/Kudos to the Development Team for another outstanding release. I sincerely appreciate the monthly updates, especially the time saving mayor's help when working neighbors facilities. I have noticed what appear to be two areas for consideration. This morning while working a neighbors facilities, (accessing their farms from my wall on facebook) I received a message saying in essence, "Thank you for watering my farm, you will receive $300 coins... " The same prompt you receive when you tend/visit neighbors farms from your home farm. To be clear, I used to function yesterday, and it worked very well. I enjoyed the Mayor cruising through the farms that needed service. A little disappointed that it is not functioning today. Hope it is repaired soon.

Secondly, I think when working the facilities or factories, the color should change from blue to maybe red, to show that the farm has been worked and still allow one to navigate back to do services if deemed necessary. Thanks again for your assistance. By the way, I use CHROME to play Farm Town.

Hi, each new level requires slightly more XP to get to it, so it does take fractionally longer to level up each time. If you're already at level 500 and you've built up enough XP when levels are released. you will of course go straight to level 525 and receive 25 FC at once.

I'm not sure if they are showing on my neighbor bar or not. So many do not use their own names on their farm.

My guess would be either Facebook changes or changes to your operating system video settings you forgot you made. I do the latter sometimes. (That is, forget I did something!) I am still showing would be neighbors whom I have just sent a request highlighted in yellow and those who have accepted my request in the past in teal.

But yes, I agree with you. It is nice when the name in the tab matches the name that Facebook has on file. It does make it easier to find people sometimes instead of going by pictures. But since Qivis Poimtip is my real name forwarded a letter depending on whether the letter is a consonant or a vowel instead of leaving it alone, I'm hardly one to complain! :D

Oh man. Now that the mayor is helping, I've been sitting here working farms ALL MORNING LONG! LOLOL This has GOT to stop!

I have noticed one thing . . . there are some names I don't recognize as neighbors or even as FB friends whose facilities are showing up on my timeline and seem indistinguishable from those of my friend and neighbors. I click on them, but can't work facilities. I'm thinking maybe when my neighbors like a posting now, it's hard to distinguish that from those of people who ARE friends and neighbors? Is this part of the new FB thing or is it something FT can fix? I recognize MOST of my friends and neighbors but probably not all so this is a bit problematic.

That is your neighbors that either like or share their neighbors posts which then gets posted to your page. Only the working facilities can't be worked, but the bonus posts and ingredient requests that your neighbors post for their neighbors you can collect from them. I get bonuses from my neighbors that post their neighbors bonuses all the time. There is nothing that Slashkey and FT can do, it is all FB and the changes that they made.

After doing this I then tried both refreshing their farm and going back to their original hire request post. I would return to their farm but never got the work facility pop up.

On another note, now when I go to the Market to Hire someone I cry out:
"Who wants to shake a tree farm? I have fuel and the tools for YOU to use"

Working client requests from neighbors -- continue to get the "Oops already worked these" on the first farm; happens with Chrome, IE and Opera browsers.

The new automated level announcements and going to the store: very annoying because they kick me out of what I'm doing. Hasn't happened yet while working for others, but when I'm planting it kicks me out of plant mode and I have to go back to get my seeder and then to the store to get the seeds again. This is extremely annoying -- can you add an option for those of us who don't want the automated announcements? Please? Pretty please?

ADDENDUM: Working as a neighbor (taking care of their farm while they're offline for family business), doing a harvesting job for someone else -- leveled up and got booted from the job when the level up announcement popup and store popup appeared. PLEASE TURN THIS OFF!!!

Hi!

As you said, as long as they are out, it works for helping with the facilities, when the first one returns, unload it and then dispatch it again. Remember you cant have 2 of the same locomotives dispatched at the same time, so dont need to purchase another engine of the same type.:)

The ones on the farm I landed on were done...and on the next but on the last farm, luckily only 3 farms had referrals....none of the referrals had been worked...so I had to click on each building...and as the farmer had then scattered all over the place it was hard to remember which were normal facs and which were referrals...hopefully I did all of them!! So I think a lot of farmers are not getting all their farms done..hope this is fixed soon...I am on WF4, use Google Chrome, Windows 7

You can share your feedback if you see any issues with this approach.


very confusing. i believe you can navigate to any farm anyways if you want to work services this way.

Like so many other people, I don't like the pop-ups when I reach a new level. It means 3 clicks where previously we just had one.

Apart from that, fun facilities! Thank you.

Are there any plans for another farm? While it's great that we can make each farm larger, I hesitate to go beyond 28 on mine because my internet access is patchy and I would have trouble loading larger farms, according to the information you have given us.

very confusing. i believe you can navigate to any farm anyways if you want to work services this way.

The Mayor also works the service facilities under the new train rules, not just manufacturing, as long as there are 3 or more farms to work. I have been playing with this all afternoon and I don't see a problem with the color changes. The ones he works stay blue but we don't have to go there after he's done. My biggest problem is remembering who I already worked for so I don't go back there and get the OOPS mesage! :)

If they have no tools or fuel, then they can use yours, but if they have fuel they will have to use their fuel first before using yours.

a) Employers now have the option to share their fuel with their employees. Employees fuel will always be used first if available, when they run out of fuel employers fuel will be used at that point.

I'm getting the Oops on the 1st farm then it moves on to the other farms and collects OK.
I do wish for a return of the blue checker to go to green, that gives me a handle on where I am into the hire.

Also, I love the 2 trains = a free ride. It saves my RAM by not having to load each farm on my computer. I do urge players to start the hire on their least encumbered farm for fast loading for workers.

Nice update and nice surprise to see when I signed on. One big problem, I won't purchase anymore FC Raul since my semi truck and the few FC I've reported missing a few times since last update has not only not been returned BUT I've NEVER received a response to any ticket I've sent. Thankfully so far not missing anything this update.


My BUG I've discovered since update is the animal buildings are not all registering time left to harvest....When I go to factory manager to "harvest" my animals I'm seeing some of each type animal with no time left showing....The only tool I purchased to harvest all was for the dairy barns since I always stager my harvesting of the others. Meaning I'll normally harvest 16 out of 20 so not unusual for me to see rabbits with no time showing or sheep, etc....Today all that have no time showing are saying none to be harvested when I click....thought you all should know about this.

Again I thank you for the coin facilities, won't be purchasing the FC new ones until my missing is returned from last update....even though I have every other FC factory and "Store" will NOT be purchasing these new ones.....Sorry won't chance it....

Nice update and nice surprise to see when I signed on. One big problem, I won't purchase anymore FC Raul since my semi truck and the few FC I've reported missing a few times since last update has not only not been returned BUT I've NEVER received a response to any ticket I've sent. Thankfully so far not missing anything this update.

As Raul has stated:
- The mayor was also incorrectly working the animal buildings, which had the side effect of having wrong harvest dates on the facility manager for some animal buildings. You may have also end up with some animal buildings on your harvest storage, if this is the case please report it here. You can just sell those buildings.

- The animal building harvest dates in the facility manager will not be fixed immediately, you will have to wait until you harvest them again

The working of the service facilties when working factories is suppose to be fixed.

That's not what I meant. I have worked many many manufacturing factories and their companion service factories today by clicking the separate links from my neighbors on my wall, and each time the Mayor worked the services exactly like he did the regular facs. He did not work the services at the same time, only in response to my clicking to go into them the usual way from my wall.

People seemed confused about the colors not changing, thinking they would not know which farms to work. I was just pointing out that you do not need to know which farms the mayor worked, he doesn't work them until after you have done a certain percent of the work yourself, so when he's done, you're done. :)

I (level 158) just went and worked on my friend's farm (level 235), via feed posts -one to work in facilities, and one to refer clients to facilities. On BOTH, where the mayor says, after doing a few, that "For being such a hard worker he will complete the remaining farms for you"....I went and checked anyway, and found that HE DOESN'T!! :mad: And also you have to manually check all facilities from that point on, as the pop-up that takes you to them no longer appears for you either.

BTW: Neither I nor the friend I worked for have any trains or freight cars at all..

In any case, is there any way to turn that mayor help OFF in the first place???? I would much rather do ALL the work myself anyway!! That mayor takes all the fun out of this, if you ask me!

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Mar 16 2014, 12:43 AM
So, from what I can see, the Mayor is doing the oopsie daisies on the first farm and then completing the rest without faltering. I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't an ultra sensitive 'click of the mouse' problem. Like that first 'getting going' click is registering twice, thus, the 'oops' reply is in response to the second click.

I just bought 7 new train cars so that I could apply this awesome new upgrade at 100 percent, and making each train car attach together was a feat in itself because of ultra sensitive mouse movements.

Although I'm in love with you at the moment Raul, if you release new train cars on the next update, I will hate you and my life forever. Making this 7 car purchase hurt like a four letter word. MAN!!! But I worked every post I could find TWICE today. I haven't done that in...........uhhhhh........well..... EVER!!! Watching my experience points jump by the 10's of thousands was a very sweet reward.

Thanks for now. I'm sure I'll be back to complain about something that's taking you way to long to institute into the game very soon. ;)

Yes. The coin cars do not count toward this. You can have coin cars in your train if you want, like to make the train go around a corner in the track, but they do not count for the facility work.

There could be something to that, with the mouse being too sensitive, I am also experiencing the Oops on the first farm, and the rest is fine:confused:
And I am totally with you in on the trains, would hate to see new freight cars in the next couple of releases ;)

Allowing others to use fuel is not working. I hired a newbie and she had about 10,000 fuel. When that was used, she isn't able to use mine. I even tried rehiring, but she still is getting "you need more fuel".

One of my friends is a newbie farmer and when hired her she too had fuel but whilst doing my farm she too ran out of fuel. She said when she is doing other peoples work her fuel doesn't show up so she didn't realise she was running out of fuel. She should have been able to use my fuel but that just didn't happen and she had to leave my farm and go back to hers in order to refuel. A few farmers have said to me that their fuel gauge is not showing up when they are on others farms.:confused:

That's what was happening to me. I would do facilities and when the mayor said moving to next farm, i would stay there, but i double checked anyways and found out that the mayor didn't do them all, and the ones the mayor missed i had to do one by one

today i tried to work posts from somebody i worked yesterday morning - got the oops message for all farms on both posts - always thought we had to wait at least 8 hours - this was almost 24 since i worked - also finding i get the oops message on at least 1 farm (except for the one person who only had 2 farms available)

Hi!

For farms worked 24 hours ago, try the memcache link in my signature where it says AQUI, to clear your game memory. You'll see a list of unsettings, close that window and the farm if it is open. Then clear your browser cache and close it. Reopen and try to work that farm again.

You have taken away the choice whether I want to post my new level, I now have to click cancel not to post my new level. Not fond of it going into the modified version of the store, there should be a choice to turn this option off and bring back the choice as to whether I want to post my new level. When I am working on my farm I just want to click to close the notice of my new level and continue on working.

I don't think most of the players care whether or not someone has risen to another level, or advising other players that we've purchased an item. Those posts, (when someone has leveled up or purchased a new item) are unnecessary & add more posts for me to filter thru to find the work orders or bonuses.

How would you know how many you were supposed to get if you don't see what facs are on those farms? I have many neighbors who have their facs spread out over all 20 farms, I'm getting lots of goodies from some and not much from others, but I have no way of knowing if the Mayor is giving me the same amount I would have gotten if I had worked them without him. Just curious how you know. :)

Getting around the OOPS glitch. I am still getting the OOPs on some when I go to work the facilities. It only happens on the first farm then the rest process normally. If this happens on the service facilities for a person, it will also happen for the regular facilities. If I click on the different farms it does not try to work again.. nothing happens. If I reload the page, accept the first message to work the facilities, then move to the first farm that is highlighted (say farm 1 if it is highlighted) before I click on the mayor's message ... when I click on the message he work and give me products for that farm which was previously OOPS-ed. It is the same for both types of facilities.
I am using the Google Chrome browser and have 2 trains dispatched with 10 cars each. I hope this will help isolate the glitch. :)

I have noticed the mouse has gotten more sensitive, too. It's getting harder to find the sweet spot and hang on to it for chopping and picking. I get in close and slow down, more so than I have before. I built a new train yesterday as well and had the same experience. As soon as I have something lined up and click to plop it, it moves to the side and plops into a different spot, if there's room, or stays red and I have to line it up again. I thought it was just me, so thanks for that! :)

ugh, I thought the same thing building my new train, so I stopped at the 4 that had goods I can really use. I could really use a car that brings fresh produce, onions and tomatoes in particular. :)

i think the reason we are getting small amounts of products on some facilitie work is quite simply because more people are working the facilitie now that it's so easy............you need to be quick on the posts to get good amounts now................i posted my facilities the other day and they were empty in 15 mins

Also keep in mind that some players - dare I say it - are playing other games! I have friends who wait until they see they are no longer on the last level and then come back to Town and work feverishly to try to get ahead of the number of points for it by a million or two. Many of my lady friends have even changed their names on Facebook to things like "Cafeworld Sherry" and such. Anyway, they work my factories to zero really, really fast. That happens when you have 658 friends! :D

I am still experiencing issues with sending gifts or returning gifts---and boosting my trains. Friends that have been my neighbors for quite sometime, when I try to boost my train with this neighbor---the only option that I get is to "invite" them instead of "request". I have used IE since I started playing Ft and at the time it was the "only provider" for Ft. I have boycotted Google and I should not have to use it or Firefox. Almost every time Ft has made additions there has been problems with IE. When will these issues be taken care of? I do love the features of the eye and as I call it the "cruise control" on working neighbors farms---but it has now been 5 days since I could return gifts--with what we pay to play this game(it is not cheap anymore)this is unacceptable to the regular players!

The problem with the gift sending is not a FT problem. It was caused by an update by Facebook. See this thread for information on it:
http://www.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=593658
The Invite is also a Facebook issue, however whether it says request or invite they still get the gift or train boost.

Well, here's a new one. I'm not sure if the upgrade did it, but I've never encountered it before...

I was in the market. I got hired. I went to the farm, and apparently dragged the market with me. I could still see all the people and what's more, I could still see the 'hire me' requests in the chat window. As I was working, another hire request popped up, from a different farmer. I've seen the ghost people who follow you from the market but aren't *really* there, but this was totally different.

edited to clarify: I was watching new 'hire me' requests scroll up the window, not simply whatever had been there when I left.

You can have all your trains on the same farm. You can have up to 5 trains as long as they have the 5 different freight engines. You can have up to 5 of the same car as long as they are on separate trains.

Try using a different browser. I find that sometimes trying a different one helps. The one I recommend most is Opera since it also is Chromium based and not having the issues that Firefox and IE are having with gifts. No browser is perfect and sometimes pages just do not want to open.

I tried using a different browser (happened to try Opera) and it didn't help with this issue (farm not loading). It does help with the issue of not being able to send gifts and neighbor invites, but not with the problem of the farm not loading (which I'm being told is a Facebook issue, not a FarmTown issue).

Hope it clears up today because I think I have crops ready, and if I can't harvest them before bedtime they'll go to waste overnight (all of my farms!).

love the new features. Was wondering though what happened to the "show farmtown wall requests" - now only seeing a few posts instead of the many I used to see.

Facebook made changes and messed that up. Your better choice now is to use the Games Feed from your Facebook Home page.

Well, here's a new one. I'm not sure if the upgrade did it, but I've never encountered it before...

I was in the market. I got hired. I went to the farm, and apparently dragged the market with me. I could still see all the people and what's more, I could still see the 'hire me' requests in the chat window. As I was working, another hire request popped up, from a different farmer. I've seen the ghost people who follow you from the market but aren't *really* there, but this was totally different.

edited to clarify: I was watching new 'hire me' requests scroll up the window, not simply whatever had been there when I left.

When you got hired and went to their farm and saw the whole market come with you, try to refresh the farm that you are on and see if the market that you saw when you first got to their farm is still there.

Please let us know whether or not you had the box checked. It may be a new issue the moderators need to investigate since not many people have tried using the feature yet and not many have asked.

I love the new updates. Appears there may be a glitch though. When I am trying to work or refer on a friends farm (from a post on the wall) it only goes to a certain pint before the mayor says "Moving on to next farm" and then it won't let me work any more farms after that

Read the first post of this thread. The mayor is automatically working the remaining farms for you and you don't have to go to those farms.

I suggest checking Adobe.com to be sure the Flash is up to date as well. Unlike Chrome, the other Chromium browsers do not use Shockwave, but Flash instead. And even though the automated updates to it sometimes have a check-box available upon installation they do not work. One has to install it manually instead. Be sure to uncheck the McAfee box if you already have security software installed (and you should!) and do not want Homescan to install with it.

Have experienced the same. my worker saying that their fuel isn't showing up... only when they are on their own farm does it show up.
