See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on May 14th, 7:30PM EST.

Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes: En Español AQUI (http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=613074)

1. 20 Colored Crates and 12 new Mother's Day decorations (released 2 weeks ago): The crates are in the Farming category.

2. Next 5 expansions for Farm 26: See prices below:

24x24 - 10000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
26x26 - 10500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
28x28 - 11000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
30x30 - 11500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
32x32 - 12000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. Disable facilities in Facility Manager: Similar to the way you disable certain products inside a facility, you can now disable certain facilities inside the facility manager on a per farm basis, so when you click Start All/Load All they are ignored.

4. Farm Selector showing when returning to your farm: When you click the Home icon to return to your farm we now show the farm selector so you can select which farm you want to go to.

5. 14 x 14 Crop Tools: Harvester, Plower and Harvest-Plow Combine are now available in 14 x 14 mode, this will allow you to perform farming operations over 196 fields at a time.

- As the toolbox was already full, users purchasing these new tools will see new arrow buttons in the Toolbox to access all their tools, however is much easier to use the mouse wheel for this.
- The Seeder 14 x 14 and the Harvest-Plant Combine 14 x 14 will be released on the next release.

6. Mouse wheel works in most windows: You can now use your mouse wheel for easier scrolling on most game windows like Store, Market, Storage, Facility Manager, Belt/Dans Manager, Quest Managers and the Tool Box. It also works in dropdowns like filters.

7. Belt and Dans for the next 10 Facilities: Artisan Jewelry Studio, Retail Supplies Factory, Disability Supplies Factory, Framing Factory, German Restaurant, Flooring Tiles Factory, Dessert Factory, Martial Arts Supplies Factory, Brazilian Restaurant and Ice Rink Supplies Factory.

8. Market Improvements:

- Sell 'Half of All' option in the Market Window. You can use the arrow next to the blue button to sell in bulk 'All Selected' or 'Half of All'. If 'non-ingredients' or 'non-ingredients for me' filter is selected you will be able to Sell 'All' as well.
- Sort by 'Selected' in the Market Window, this will show all the Selected products at the top.
- When you click on a farmer avatar the top line of the menu will also show the user level, this way experienced users can recognize and help novice users.

9. Other Improvements:

- When working your friends facilities, once you have worked all the products in a facility, the facility will auto close and the next one will open.
- Better explanation provided to players with more than 1000 friends when trying to send requests to them.
- Bug Fix: When opening the Market Window for the first time the product selectors were hidden.

10. Physiotherapy Equipment Factory (FC): Produces Physiotherapy Equipment.

Shoulder Wheel
Exercise Staircase
Grip Exerciser
Balance Trainer
Activity Monitor
Heel Exerciser
Parallel Walking Bars
Pediatric Gait Trainer

11. Roasted Nut Gift Factory (Coins): Produces Roasted Nut Gifts.

Roasted Chestnuts
Rum Cashews

Butter Toffee Pecans
Seasoned Nuts
Fruity Nuts
Roasted Mixed Nuts
Chocolate Nuts

12. Rehabilitation Center (FC): Provides Rehabilitation Services and can be stocked with products from the Physiotherapy Equipment Factory.

13. Trophy Shop (Coins): Provides Trophy Retail Services and can be stocked with products from the Trophy Factory.

Enjoy!

Post Release Updates - May 9th, 2:45PM EST

- Users with only 1 farm can now click the home button as usual to return to their farms.

Post Release Updates - May 11th, 8:00PM EST

- When doing Start All or Load All in the Facility Manager some people were confused with the first number that was shown, it used to indicate the total number of facilities currently shown, which included Animal Buildings, Regular and Service facilities. After this release with the introduction of the check boxes we changed that number to include only the number of selected (checked) facilities that applied to the actual operation performed, so for example if you click Start All that number would be the total number of *Regular* Facilities shown that were also selected.

We realized that the previous information was useful to some people, so we reverted this change back to the way it was before and just added the number of selected facilities for the current operation, so if you click Start All you will see something like "The Facility Manager is showing 600 facilities (450 regular facilities selected)..."

- Mouse wheel scrolling always do one full Page Up or Page Down independent of how many items are being shown

- When selecting the 'non ingredients for me' filter in the Market, the default option is now 'Sell Selected' instead of 'Sell All'.

Post Release Updates - May 12th, 1:00AM EST

- Belt and Dans for the next 10 Facilities, see post above for more info.

Post Release Updates - May 13th, 6:30AM EST

- When you select the Non-Ingredient filter and right after that you select the Non-Ingredient for me filter, the 'Sell Selected' option will be correctly set as the default.
- We have added 2 more buttons to the farm selector that is shown when you are returning to your farm, 'DEFAULT' and 'LAST', this should make the navigation to your LAST or DEFAULT farms faster.
- When working your friends facilities manually (without the Mayor help), after working each facility, the facility will auto close and the next one will open, saving you a click.

Post Release Updates - May 14th, 4:20AM EST

- Farm Selector when returning to farm was moved slightly to the left and down.
- When working friends facilities manually, after a click on the 'Work on All' button, that facility will auto-close immediately and the next one will be opened, before this change, there was a delay of 2 secs.

Post Release Updates - May 14th, 7:30PM EST

- We just released a fix for the users that were experiencing the preference corruption bug. Please let us know if you are still having issues with your preferences.

Known Issues

- None

Thanks team!

Is the Rehab Center for Farmtown junkies??? :)

Increasing from 8x8 to 10x10 was a 56% increase. From 10x10 to 12x12 was a 44% increase. The current increase from 12x12 to 14x14 is only a 36% increase. See where I'm going here? If you had increased to 15x15 we'd be back at a 56% increase - much more equitable for all the Farm Cash we're putting out, I think.

Phrasing it another way, we're paying more to become less efficient.

Hello dcsully,

Open up the funnel and make sure that the settings is like you want. If the 897 includes service facilities and factories make sure that the service facilities and factories is checked. Plus you can scroll through and make sure that all of your facilities has the check mark in the new check boxes with each facility.

Hi dscully,
I just checked mine and all are showing. Make sure you have at the top of the funnel filters are to All Facilities not Active Facilities and All farms checked, and down at the bottom for Regular Facilities that All is checked and not the non-working ones. And don't forget to have the Animal buildings checked too.

Everything is checked like it should be. A year ago they took all my crops and goods and I still can't catch up on eggs/milk - can't believe I continued to spend money on this game. :(

Hi dscully,
I am sorry this is happening. One other thing to check. There is a new feature in the Facility Manager tonight where you can individually uncheck facilities (check box in the upper left corner). Please scroll through your facility manager and make sure that none of them were unchecked by the release change.
I have looked through your Farm Cash Archive in your data and do not see any missing that were bought with Farm Cash. The archive lists everything you have ever bought with Farm Cash. If you sell or are missing an item bought with Farm Cash it is still in the list and shows 0 in game.
Do you know a specific facility or facilities you are missing that may have been bought with farm cash, so I can check that?

Regarding "Disable facilities in Facility Manager: Similar to the way you disable certain products inside a facility, you can now disable certain facilities inside the facility manager on a per farm basis, so when you click Start All/Load All they are ignored" - I love this idea, but I guess it's only designed to work with the Start All/Load All buttons at the top of the window, because when I clear the check box that enables/disables a specific facility and then click the Start All button for that facility, it still starts all production. I think that if a facility is disabled, it's own Start All button either shouldn't appear, or shouldn't do anything.

the animals barns aren't checked but I never counted them as facilities that could be worked. I've went thru my farms and tried to see if anything is really noticeably missing but I can't see anything. I thought maybe they weren't counting my duplicates - but that's not it. None of the figures are adding up no matter how I try to count it. I guess I'll just hope it will go back to normal after a few days. I know I'm not the only one with this problem. Thanks so much for trying to help.

I love being able to choose which farm to return to rather than going back to where I came from and I've wanted to be able to disable select facilities (handy for clearing out in order to move them) but I was hoping that 16x16 tree and flower tools would be next rather than bigger crop tools as I already redid all my farms with 16x16 patches when the last multiplant and transplant tools came out. Oh well, I guess I can be patient for a couple of months more.

May 09 2015, 12:59 AM
I like that added features for the Facility Manager - nice job. Sadly I would have like to have seen Store All also added to be able to disable certain facilities from adding products to storage. One use that comes to mind is Open Pit/Mineral mines, Fish Farms and other facilities that take a week to run. Some facs I would like to store production runs daily and others weekly. Other than that - Kudos!

I'm sorry, but I missed the update on how to disable products from being made in your fac's when you hit start all. Could you Please let me know how!! Thank you. May I make a suggestion,that when someone is hired to work your farms and do certain tasks, that when the hired help leaves your farms,you receive a notice of the tasks that were NOT completed.

Hi Brenda, Your friend does not get the farm selector if she only has one farm. However, she should be able to click the "home" button, to return home, but there seems to be a slight problem with that feature at this time. The developers have been informed, so hopefully, it will not be too long before that issue is resolved. I hope this helps :)

Never mind. All million of my fuel suddenly disappeared without it being used normally. :( But I do have nearly 40 million available after the refill. So I'll just have to hope either it was used up and I did not even notice..... It very well could just be the brain damage again. :D

Hi christophercilley:)

When you are hired to work other's farms, if the owner has bigger tools than you, then those tools go to your hands. If you have bigger tools, then open the tool box and you can use any of your tools from there. Remember that your tools need to be in your storage to be able to get them while working for others.:)

Hi revannoy:)

If you only have 1 farm, then the farm selector is not available for you but you should be able to use the home icon. It seems there is a problem with this feature and the developers have been informed. While waiting for them to fix this, please click in Play to go back to your farm.:)

Hi carolinarandy:)

If you have the Start All and the Load All tools, then if you open any of your regualar facilities or service facilities, you will see a little box in the upper left side for every product in the factory.
If for any reasson you dont want to start or load a product into the factory then you can uncheck that little box.

Please if you want to make a suggestion, post it in our Suggestion Section. You cant post a new thread there, but you can post as a response to a thread that fits with your suggestion.:)

when I open facility manager and click on start all - it should say I have 897 facilities - after the update it says I have 603?????? ACK!!!!!

There was a change.....

Prior to this release the TOTAL of production AND client facilities was the number you saw.... and the message then continued to say that xxx were those that would be covered by the tools shown.

In other words, you had 897 TOTAL facilities, and 603 of them can be "started" using the tools you have.
then.... at the client facilities , you had 897 facilities, and 292 of them can be "loaded"

Now you will just see how many production you have (603) that can be "started"
and separately...
how many client facilities (292) you have that can be loaded.

Thanks for the update, but what's the point in bringing out only the Harvester and Plower. It makes no sense, since those of us who use the combo tools, would rather have the 3-in one to do it all in the first place and hiring others doesn't make sense. I think if your planning to still bring out all these friggin tools for us, you should at least give us all 3 in one update then bring out the combos. I don't appreciate not having the seeder also in the larger tool

Still, I'd rather just see the ability to plant, harvest and plow all at once versus the tools, the game is just taking more and more time and I'm getting bored again.

Yesterday I had three or four quests which had been completed during the week. I finished another one in the morning, but was told I couldn't claim farm cash because it was 'more than seven days old.' Now all my completed quests have disappeared from the week's tally at the bottom and I'm back to 0.

Nice to have, but seriously, when are the devs planning on addressing the really serious imbalances with amber and with inks? Both are huge problems for any serious player. I have 24 farms with open pit mines, and cannot keep enough amber on hand to do my facilities (6 facilities using amber) full tomorrow night. And no matter how much ink I produce, it is never enough--I grow soybeans over night every night, have tons of the beets, sunflowers, blueberries and walnuts, and the only ink I ever seem to be able to field enough of is black ink. This is ludicrous--they keep putting out new products that need yellow ink, but don't fix the problem with being able to produce enough. Ditto red and blue inks!!

Love the update items but twice since the update, after I have been off line for a few hours, when I load my farm its takes forever, when I land I find that in preferences, every single box is ticked which I never have, reason for slow loading. Also when selling at the Market I always sell from 'non ingredients for me' and I have had all the items I sell ticked so I just sell selected. Now they are all unticked. I went through this morning, took ages to retick the items I want to sell. Come back after an hour, preferences all ticked again but my Market to sell item are now unticked, done this twice. Is it a glitch? as wasting so much time with this.

Hello Lpeak,

I haven't seen anyone post about this before. First check and make sure that your date/time is correct on your computer, if it is off it could possibly do some strange stuff.

If that isn't off then you could try to clear the FT memcache.

To clear the Farm Town memcache close your game if it is open, then click the following link: https://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/play/?do=clear_memcached

The FT memcache is different than your computers cache, the memcache is on Slashkey's servers and some times old data or bad data gets into the memcache and needs to be cleared. The memcache shouldn't be used all the time, because it clears all the data and when you log back into your farm it will take a little longer since it has to load all the data. After clicking on the link a page of unsettings will appear, this is the memcache clearing and once the page is finished you can close that tab and close you game if it is open, then you can clear your computers cache, cookies, and history. Then you can close your browser, then you can open up your browser again, and open your farm and see if it is working.

Ouch! It appears there was a bug in the data conversion for selecting/de-selecting facilities in the Facility Manager. It appears to have only affected the service facilities.

There are several products that I always leave UNchecked within some of the service facilities that are also used elsewhere, because I don't make enough to BOTH fill the service facility and use it in other places.

For example (and the one that hurt :) ), in the Fishing Tackle Shop, I always leave Seawater Bait and Freshwater Bait unchecked, because I don't make enough to both fill the facility and go fishing. So, I click Load All, then go in and manually load a few batches. But when I did so today and opened the facility, I found Seawater checked and Freshwater unchecked. And little Seawater Bait left.

If this had happened in just this facility, I'd claim senior moment, but it happened in 6 other facilities.

This is why you sometimes have to say, "It's only a game." LOL

I did all you asked and it happened again, went to work a factory post and couldnt load the farm, reloaded my farms and found that everything was switched on again and the tools I normal have showing on the bottom bar had reverted again to what they used to be years ago, all my settings had changed. I went to market to sell, and everything I had ticked again was unticked. Really cant do that anymore so wont go and sell again for a long time.

Yesterday I sold ingredients not needed for me. I found out after the fact some how some of my items had come recheked I guess. Lost all my Acorn Squash, brussel sprouts, chicle and parsnip which I had been saving. Now they are all gone and yet the boxes are still unchecked. Just want to warn everybody to be careful. I also went and sold half of my walleyes and they were all gone except for harvest after I sold what I thought was half.

Hi docmm6:)

Since this release you have 3 option for selling Non Ingredients and Non ingredients for me

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11259506_10205357759735485_4567045518095014133_n.j pg?oh=1da5878e6dd39158cf22ad514b773b0b&oe=5606E83E&__gda__=1439295948_55c46e60a3d453cfc268a59a23cd5d2 1


If the setting was for Sell All, then all your products were affected.

Sounds interesting, and I might find some use for the improvements, But a new tool would be nice. Like our farm map changing colors when there is a crop ready. just like when the farm is fertilized. The other thing I have been hoping for is the means to send "anything" to a neighbor that may not have the money or levels. Items that could be used in the quest.
Congrats to this months contest winners.

I also have had the same issue twice today. I will clear memcache and see if it helps...

After clearing the memcache, I again reset all my system preferences, recreated all my tool short cuts, and painstakingly re-selected all items for sale. For the duration of yesterday, all seemed to be well. However, when I loaded FT this am, all system preferences had been set to default, my tool shortcuts had disappeared, and after working a couple of facilities for my neighbours, I discovered that all the items in storage had to be selected again for sale. This is becoming very tedious. Any help you can provided is greatly appreciated.

Hi dross,
I have sent this on to the developers. It appears that anything you have done with settings is not being saved. Normally clearing the memcache and browser cache will take care of this and fix the not saving of the settings.
We will need to wait until they can look at yours and lpeak's data and see what is causing it.

Have noticed, the settings are only reverted after selling at the market the ticked items. As I normally only sell after an update will leave it be for now.

Hi lpeak,
When new items are added to the non-ingredients as were this release with the roasted nut factory, those items are not checked to start with. Is it possible that you saw those and thought everything was unchecked when it was actually only the new items?
Waiting to sell until each release is really not a good idea as if you get too much non-ingredients built up it can cause problems with the selling and getting the coins. I would suggest selling at least every couple weeks rather than waiting for the release to sell.

Thank you so very much for the farm selector option when returning to my farm! I appreciate your continued work to always make this game greater.

I have no idea why ... but for a few glorious moments last night, while in the market selling things out of storage, my dashboard links were actually lit up and while the stats link did not work, the facility manager link did. In other words, I was able to open my facility manager while I was in the market. I've tried to recreate it, to no avail.

I've put this in suggestions, but I'm going to put in another plug here ... it would be VERY nice to be able to access our stats and facility manager from the market.

Thanks again for the awesome update!

New information from Raul:
Post Release Updates - May 11th, 8:00PM EST

- When doing Start All or Load All in the Facility Manager some people were confused with the first number that was shown, it used to indicate the total number of facilities currently shown, which included Animal Buildings, Regular and Service facilities. After this release with the introduction of the check boxes we changed that number to include only the number of selected (checked) facilities that applied to the actual operation performed, so for example if you click Start All that number would be the total number of *Regular* Facilities shown that were also selected.

We realized that the previous information was useful to some people, so we reverted this change back to the way it was before and just added the number of selected facilities for the current operation, so if you click Start All you will see something like "The Facility Manager is showing 600 facilities (450 regular facilities selected)..."

- Mouse wheel scrolling always do one full Page Up or Page Down independent of how many items are being shown

- When selecting the 'non ingredients for me' filter in the Market, the default option is now 'Sell Selected' instead of 'Sell All'.

Known Issues

- If you select the Non-Ingredient filter and right after that you select the Non-Ingredient for me filter, the Sell All option will be incorrectly set as the default. This will be fixed later today.

THANK YOU!!!! I had a friend whose storage was devastated by the Sell All default. Admittedly, she moved too quickly and didn't really read what the screens were telling her, but having Sell All as the default was an accident waiiting to happen for all of us. SO glad it's gone!!! :)

Hi BKBishop:)

Please open your facility manager and be sure all your regular and service facilities have the check mark (this was added in this release)

Then click in the funnel and be sure you have check marks for All Facilities, All Farms. Also in Facility Type, you need check marks for Animal buildings, Regular facilities (All), Service facilities.

Your farm link is not working, you can read instructions on how to get it in the following thread:)

Hi cindya:)

I'm not sure why the page is reloading, it shows 50 gifts at a time, if you use the Accept all button, and then Send gifts back, you need to click in My requests tab again to collect any other gift you could have.

Try clearing your memcache (link below), then when the page of unsetting text opens close it and your farm, then clear your browser cache and close your browser. Reopen and check if the page still reloads.

The two times my preferences were reset it was when I was working people's facilities. I worked one person's facilities and they were normal, and the next time I worked for someone, my flash would crash because all my preferences were reset and nothing was hidden.

First I LOVE the ability to use the scroll wheel in the menus - so much easier.

Please please can you remove the pop up that says "do you want to go home" when you are on a friends farm. After I have used the farm selector I am sure I want to go back to my farm and this isnt IMHO needed anymore.

Hi,

Only the developers know the answer to that question and they haven't told us.

Hi,

Not as good as the last up-date but still nice. This update scored 3 out of 10 last one was 10 out of 10 (it was a great update last time with the new farm and crops ect).

i will think about getting the tools when all of them are out which is why this up-date got such a low score.

I would like to stress that i enjoy EVERY up-date and some are better then others so by given them a score from now on, will show you what i think of them. (if that means anything to anyone lol).

keep up the good work Thankyou.

I can't access the toolbox explanation. The last update put the configuration of my toolbox and extended toolbox back to the way it was before we could manipulate it. When I try to go to the toolbox instructions in the May 8 update, I get the message that I do not have official access. Yes, I am logged in to the forum.

Hi Liza Jane,
Are you talking about setting up your tools in the shortcut locations? If so click on the bent arrow up by the save button. There are instructions in that pop up to explain how to set them up.
You posted in the May 8th release so I am not sure what you mean about not having access.

- We have added 2 more buttons to the farm selector that is shown when you are returning to your farm, 'DEFAULT' and 'LAST', this should make the navigation to your LAST or DEFAULT farms faster.
- When working your friends facilities manually (without the Mayor help), after working each facility, the facility will auto close and the next one will open, saving you a click.

First I LOVE the ability to use the scroll wheel in the menus - so much easier.

Please please can you remove the pop up that says "do you want to go home" when you are on a friends farm. After I have used the farm selector I am sure I want to go back to my farm and this isnt IMHO needed anymore.

Its gone already - great service - thank you

I just received the message, "Would you like to reserve farms in the town for your friends and add them as your neighbours?" I couldn't find any information about this but because I'm curious I clicked on the green checkmark. Then I got the screen to select friends to add as neighbors. I didn't add anyone - it's too late for me right now (time to say "goodnight"). What does this message mean - are you going to allow us to have more neighbors?

Hi Barb,
No the number of neighbors has not been changed. You may have accidently clicked on one of the empty spots that says Add Neighbors and that caused that pop up come up.

Hi,

Sounds like you are having loading issues.

Try clearing your FT memcache. To do that Click Here (https://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/play/?do=clear_memcached). A window will open with a list of "unsetting", that is the memcache being cleared. Close that window and FT if you have it open in another window. Clear your browser caches, close browser, then reload and try again.

If that doesn't help also try the items listed in the following thread . .

I agree - the number of times I would want to go home to a different farm than the default are very few.

Also I am still getting a couple of facs that dont load automatically when I click start all. Always different ones - usually the ones that cant be worked though. This time it was only one mineral mine and one oil pump - I have more than one of all of them.

I noticed that the mother's day special items are gone from the gift list, so I guess there was an update. I just tried to click on my requests and accept some of my gifts (it said I had 50), but when the page came up, I got the message that I had no requests. Now the number 50 is no longer beside my requests. Anyone else lose their gifts?

Hi TheaBard,
The only update was to remove those gifts.
Please try clearing your memcache (link below), then when the page of unsetting text opens close it and your farm, then clear your browser cache and close your browser. Reopen and see if your gifts are back listed.

Seems to have been a glitch. When I reloaded the game, the gifts were back. I apologize for the false alarm.

Hi,

I find the market is quiet and busy at different times of the day. You could try going to a different market. Visit a neighbour who is on a different server to you and go to the market from there.

Hi,

Please place your idea in the Suggestions area of the forum where the developers will see it. You can't start a new thread there. All you do is find a thread with a Title that most suits your idea, then post a reply. If you can't find one, there is one called "My Idea Doesn't Have a Thread" that you can post in.
Here's the link to the Suggestions area of the forum. . .

the new feature added on this update Default and LAST.

it was highlighting you previous location (home button farm selector) when you went to another farm or to market.

The new feature Default took you to user set default farm (still does)
the LAST took you to the last farm you have on your farm selector no matter where you were previously however it no longer works that way what is going on here anyone know?

Hi Stu:)

I checked this from market place and the realtor office and it's working fine. When you click on the home icon, you will see the last farm where you were in a different colour.

Please try clearing your memcache (link below), then when the page of unsetting text opens close it and your farm, then clear your browser cache and close your browser. Reopen and check if it is working for you, and please let us know.:)

Sorry if this in the wrong place, I use chrome for his game like many, will this affect Farm Town .. if you can post the player we need for this game on Face book chrome users thank you, again if this was the wrong place please forgive me..

NPAPI plugins don't work on Chrome version 42 and higher

Plugins allow extra features to be added to browsers. For example, you can watch certain types of videos or play a game that’s on a webpage.

NPAPI support has ended
In the past, many plugins were developed using an older system called NPAPI. Today fewer sites are using NPAPI plugins and they can sometimes cause security risks on websites.

To make browsing with Chrome safer, faster, and more stable, we’re ending support for NPAPI plugins with Chrome version 42.

Which plugins are supported
Plugins that use a newer, more secure system called Pepper API (PPAPI) will continue to work, including those that ship with Chrome, like Adobe Flash and PDF Viewer. However, plugins that use NPAPI, including Silverlight, Java, and Unity, won’t work.

How to temporarily enable NPAPI plugins
If you must use a NPAPI plugin, there’s a temporary workaround that will work until Chrome version 45 is released later in 2015:

Open Chrome.
In the address bar at the top of the screen, type chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
In the window that opens, click the link that says Enable under the Enable NPAPI flag:
Enable NPAPI Flag Screenshot

In the bottom left corner of the page, click the Relaunch Now button.
After the release of Chrome version 45, you’ll need to use an alternate web browser to load content that requires a NPAPI plugin.

Hi Diane,
The answer is no this is not going to effect Farm Town because it uses the Pepperflash plugin which is allowed.
