See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last updates released on December 28th, 3:30PM.

Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following new features and bug fixes: EN ESPAÑOL AQUI (http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=619046)

1. 28 Holiday Decorations: Released a week ago, 5 as gifts, 14 at top of the Holiday category in the store, 6 at the bottom and 4 Winter items close to the bottom in the Winter category.

2. 25 New Levels: 27 new items in the Buildings, Other, Motion, Farming, Furniture and Fun categories in the Store.

3. Last 4 expansions for Farm 28: See prices below:

34x34 - 14500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
36x36 - 15000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
38x38 - 15500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
40x40 - 16000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

4. Improvements to the 'Show Work Info' in the 'Show Names' window: The available work shown will now depend on the currently selected tool. For example if you had the Plower selected when you clicked the Show Names->Show Work Info, then the numbers shown will be the amount of fields ready to plow on each farm, if you have the Seeder selected, the info shown will be the amount of plow fields on each farm, if you have the Harvest-Plant combine, the info shown will be the amount of fields ready to harvest, ready to plow and plow fields combined. Same for the fish, tree and flower tools.

If you did not have any tool selected, then the behavior will be the same as before, it will be a summary of all the work available on each of your farms.

The Refresh Time for the Show Work Info button has also been decreased from 20 mins to 10 mins, the same Refresh Time that was used in the Market Window.

5. 16 x 16 Crop Tools: Harvester, Plower and Harvest-Plow Combine are now available in 16 x 16 mode, this will allow you to perform farming operations over 256 fields at a time.

The Seeder 16 x 16 and the Harvest-Plant Combine 16 x 16 will be released on the next release.

6. Performance Optimizations and Improvements released today:

- When you are fishing for others as an employee, if you accidentally click on the grass the avatar tele-transport itself instead of walk.
- When posting Facilities to your friends, if you did that from certain facilities like the Courthouse Supplies Factory, Courthouse and a few others, then your friends were experiencing an Expired message when trying to work your facilities.
- More optimizations for the Seeder and Harvest-Plant combine, especially when working overloaded farms.
- When using the "Flower Sprinkler" (brown) or the "Water Can" there is no more dark square to highlight the flowers needing watering, this was making the game too slow, instead, the "Water Can" now works with the Eye, for example if the Eye is closed everything that's not an unwatered flower is hidden.
- Removed the "Saving..." message that was appearing randomly when fishing for others.
- Some products in the help windows were shown as if they can be stocked in the facilities in which they are made.

7. Performance Optimizations and Improvements released during the past 3 weeks:

- Farm Loading optimizations, farms should in general load up to 25% faster. This is assuming that most of your game items are cached by your browser. A note on this, clearing your browser cache should be done only when necessary, for example, when Farmtown doesn't load correctly or extreme cases like that, usually it is not needed, and the downside is that every time you clear your browser cache you have to reload all the items to your computer which takes time, especially on slower connections, and every time you visit farms with items that are not cached you will have to wait extra time. Clearing memcache is fine and doesn't have any downsides, memcache is cleared automatically after 3 hours of inactivity.

- Better progress indicators, you will now see a more uniform progress indicator as your items are being downloaded and as your farm is being rendered for display.
- When planting using the Combine Harvest-Plant, you can change seeds by opening the store directly, you do not need to perform the extra step of re-selecting your combine again on your toolbox.
- Flags for Bahamas, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore are now showing correctly.
- There is now one more line in the chat history, for a total of 6 lines.
- When working as a Super Neighbour, we removed the "Would you like to go home?" confirmation message when you click on the Home icon.
- When clicking the blue disk on top to save changes, we replaced the confirmation message by a non intrusive fading message.
- Buying trees from the store now works like buying flowers, you can keep buying the same tree repeatedly without re-opening the store or using the Buy Multiple option in the item menu
- Removed the "Freeze/Unfreeze while Farming" avatar menu option, it's now defaulted to 'Freeze while Farming' to all players to increase performance.
- More speed optimizations for crop tools, transplanter and multiplanter.
- We removed the Black "Loading ..." box that appeared when you start harvesting as an employee. Please report if you are still seeing this box.

- More consistency and optimizations for farming tools:
a) Remove progress bars from seeder, combines and plower
b) When plowing new fields on the grass there is no transparency and the real fields appears quickly
c) The operation of the harvester now works the same as the combines, plower and seeder, in the way that your mouse don't have to be on top of a ready to harvest item to harvest the next set of items
d) The operation of the chainsaw now works the same as the tree shaker and the flower harvester in the way that your mouse don't have to be on top of a ready to chop item to chop the next set of items
e) More optimizations when using the combines

- BugFix: When using the Multiplanters sometimes the recently planted items disappeared and appeared randomly.
- BugFix: When using the manure spreaders and sprinklers, sometimes an "[object]" message was shown instead of the correct message.
- BugFix: On full screen, all tool tips in main panel and tool box were showing in the wrong position.
- BugFix: When sending gifts to friends, an arrow was showing on top of the selected gifts even if it was not an animal.
- BugFix: Unable to unload a train due to no fuel available.
- BugFix: When using the sprinklers manually going farm to farm, sometimes the sprinkler got stuck and you were not able to change tools.
- BugFix: When selecting a gift to send to your friends, you can now use the "Proceed to Send" button at the bottom and the next screen will automatically scroll to the top.
- BugFix: When working as a Super Neighbour with the "design/allow selling with my coins" permission granted, the buy one/multiple options are now available again.
- BugFix: Clicking on the "Multi" button in Item Storage/Giftbox sometimes triggered the Single Use instead of the Multiplanter functionality.
- BugFix: When visiting strangers, the size of their farms were incorrect.

8. Korean Restaurant (FC): Produces Korean Food.

Kimchi
Ginseng Chicken Soup
Seafood Panckake
Bulgogi
Pork Belly Wrap
Bibimbap
Soft Tofu Stew
Korean Pancake

New products in other facilities: Sesame Oil in the Oil Factory.

9. Holiday Decors Factory (Coins): Produces holiday decorations.

Copper Flower Vase
Joy Decor
Love Decor
Santa Sock
Tree Decor
Tree Ornaments
Table Decor
Glass Bowl Decor

The Small Pine Tree is now a harvestable tree and produce Pine Cones.

10. Pediatric Clinic (FC): Provides Children Medical Care Services and can be stocked with products from the Pediatric Supplies Factory.

11. Holiday Shop (Coins): Provides Holiday Decorations Retail Services and can be stocked with products from the Holiday Decors Factory.

Enjoy!

--Raul

Note: For those who didn't get the update, on November 17th we increased the output of the Long Fish Train Car by 130% (more than double) and the output of the Long Animal Products Train Car by 27%.

Post-Release Updates - December 11th, 2:30AM

- Released the first 3 facilities.

Post-Release Updates - December 11th, 7:00PM

- When using the water can, if the Eye is closed the watered flowers will now disappear.
- When watering your neighbour flowers, the Eye is now appearing next to the Home icon.

Post-Release Updates - December 22nd, 6:00PM

These are all updates that are part of the next release:

- When working as an employee or Super neighbour your avatar will not move anymore as you farm, same as when you are working solo, however other users in the farm will see your avatar moving, so they have a better idea of which section of the farm you are working on.
- Before this release we had 6 zoom levels, from 1 (fully zommed out) to 6 (fully zoomed in). We just added another zoom level between 1 and 2 to make the jump less abrupt.
- After using the irrigator/water sprinkler we now show the feedback message as a floating text instead of the usual message box, so no extra click is required.
- After using the manure spreader we now show the feedback message as a floating text instead of the usual message box, so no extra click is required. However this change only applies to those who have the green manure spreader.
- When you mouse over your water items you will now see the Growth time as well even if you don't have any fishing tool selected.
- When fishing with the pole or boat, the small water circle animation or the net is now shown right where you clicked, not an inch below.
- Super neighbours and regular players invited to design together can now freeze and unfreeze flowers.
- Less bandwidth consumed while farming, which could have a positive impact on performance, specially for users with slower internet connections.
BugFix: There was an issue with the Eye that after using the water can, sprinkler and other tools, the worked items were not coming back to a visible state even after releasing the tool.
BugFix: Fixed the old bug of watering flowers and then not been able to harvest them right away unless the farm was reloaded.
BugFix: When finishing working a farm, after changing farms the XP and coins suddenly changed.
BugFix: Super neighbours with all permissions allowed for designing can't use the green hand when the employer has the green hand but the Super neighbour does not own one.

Post-Release Updates - December 23rd, 3:00AM

- Released the Korean Restaurant.

Post-Release Updates - December 28th, 3:30PM

BugFix: Farm Stats timeout issues
BugFix: The single tool Axe was consuming fuel
BugFix: Ordering by Level in the neighbour bar was not working for users with very high XP

Hi MadamePondarosa,

The "small pine tree" has not been able to harvest earlier? And the release does not mention any new function about this decor tree.

The oddest thing is that I harvested it with my treeshaker and not with the chopper tool -which would be most logical :o

9. For the users that were experiencing issues when sending gifts or boosting trains using Internet Explorer or Edge browsers, we have received confirmation from Facebook that the issue is now fixed, please report if this is not the case.

Still not working for me - using Edge - but realise this is out of your control... another FB glitch

But thanks Raul and all the Devs for another great update - wishing you all a very Happy Christmas.

And for the Mods.. many thanks for all you do in the Forum over the year. I think you all have the patience of a saint replying to the same complaints over and over again... such a shame the people complaining didn't read back to see if their queries were answered earlier... but keep up the good work... I for one fully appreciate all that you do. Happy Christmas!

Good guess on the Pine Cones from the small Pine tree. I planted them and then checked with FarmStats tool for growing trees and it showed a harvest crate of Pine Cones.

Hoooray !!

Since you wrote this, Taz Man, Raul added more details about the update. He listed a Holiday Decoration Factory (or words to that effect) and I am guessing the pine cones will be used in that. :)

I also harvested some of the pine cones from the small pine trees, and in the FarmStats tool I can see the ones I have on other farms that are ready for harvest, but nowhere in my storage do I see the ones I had harvested... :confused: I'm hoping they will show up in inventory when the new facilities are released.

Hi Begonia,
I see 15 boxes in your Harvest storage. Try setting the filter to From Trees and sort by Stored amount.

Hi MadamePonderosa,
Are you a super neighbor for that individual?

Not that I'm aware of, no. Of course I can water my neighbours farm, but it was a bit annoying when the watering tool came on every farm when I did not chose it myself, and tryed to remove it with the green man.

Thanks Raul and team. Anything to make the work go faster is greatly appreciated. I don't know where to post this problem, so forgive me if this is the wrong place. I have the gifting machine that doubles the gifts received. And sometimes I accept the gifts, but they never make it to my 'gift box' to use. Also, I am really accumulating alot of animals in my inventory. 20,000 cows at the moment, I think. More than I'll be able to use with new farm releases. It takes too long to put them back on a farm to sell them. Will you ever be considering allowing us to selll them in bulk from our storage?

I bought the Long Fish Car. It looks like it's attached correctly because when I hover over the engine, the fish car lights up. But when I click on the Train Status window, the Fish Car isn't listed. I'm not sure whether to start the train or whether something's wrong. I've tried seeing if I can get the Fish Car any closer to the previous car but I can't seem to.

P.S. The Fish Car DOES appear in the Freight Car tab - maybe it doesn't appear in the Status window until after you've sent it out the first time? All the other cars are there, but they've all been sent out before.

Hi laurie_schierer:)

The gifts are not placed in your gift box after accepting them using My Requests tab or you dont receive double gifts? Please take in mind that the double gifting doesnt apply for decorations.

About the animals, please go to marketplace, then click in Item storage and set it to Animals. That way your will be able to sell them:)

I bought the Long Fish Car. It looks like it's attached correctly because when I hover over the engine, the fish car lights up. But when I click on the Train Status window, the Fish Car isn't listed. I'm not sure whether to start the train or whether something's wrong. I've tried seeing if I can get the Fish Car any closer to the previous car but I can't seem to.

P.S. The Fish Car DOES appear in the Freight Car tab - maybe it doesn't appear in the Status window until after you've sent it out the first time? All the other cars are there, but they've all been sent out before.

Susan, if you have dispatched your train before attaching the new fish car, then it will be showed up in the Fright car tab, but not in the Train status window.:)

Hi Farmer_Susan:)

In which farm do you have your train with the fish car?

Farm #15 - "The Ugly Farm"

Well HECK! My bad. I guess I'm just so used to the drill that I automatically dispatched it even though I meant to wait. Sorry. : (

Hi Susan:)

I visited your farm 15, and yes it is correctly attached, but you will need to wait 5 days till the train returns and then when you dispatch it again, the fish car will be visible in the Train status window.

And no worries, I did the same a few times:D

- When using the "Flower Sprinkler" (brown) or the "Water Can" there is no more dark square to highlight the flowers needing watering, this was making the game too slow, instead, the "Water Can" now works with the Eye, for example if the Eye is closed everything that's not an unwatered flower is hidden.

Finally! The eye works with the sprinkling can! Just one more improvement I'd like to suggest. If you could make it so that the watered flowers disappear after you water them, the same way harvested flowers disappear after they're harvested. The way it is now, I have to switch tools to make sure I haven't missed any flowers while watering, which is very easy to do, especially if your neighbor has a lot of flowers. Thank you.


EDIT: I just noticed that when I'm watering my neighbors' flowers, the Eye icon is hidden under the Home button.

Hi foreverinbluejeans,
Considering that you have 1.8 billion experience points that number is truncated at the top of your farm because there isn't enough space to show the entire number. So where you may see that 100 is being added it is actually adding the 1000 points. To see your complete total hover your mouse over the Experience number and it will show you your complete amount of experience. Before you buy another facility hover over the number and note the amount you have and then after buying hover over it again. You will see that you have gotten tohe full amount of experience.

The "small pine tree" has not been able to harvest earlier? And the release does not mention any new function about this decor tree.

The oddest thing is that I harvested it with my treeshaker and not with the chopper tool -which would be most logical :o

wondering if the tree shaker tool is working on this tree because you are harvesting the pine cones from the tree which are used in the holiday decor factory and not chopping the tree down for the pine logs

Hi MadamePondarosa,

It's showing a harvest time of 3 days in the store. We are not sure if this is right. We will have wait for the rest of the details to see what that's all about.

think i figured it out .. the small pine tree can be chopped for the pine logs but the tree shaker can also be used on it to harvest the pine cones needed in the holiday decor factory and it takes 3 days for the pine cones to be able to be harvested again. .. wish i had figured it out BEFORE chopping all my small pine trees down

Hi storm36,

You shouldn't be able to chop the small pine tree only the regular pine tree and the big pine tree. Are you sure you chopped them? If you find you can chop them again, next time they are ready, let us know.

Hi Texas Belle,

Are you trying to plant/move the trees on top of crops? If so that is layering and we can't give you the instructions for that.

I have just multiplanted about 1000 small pines on a farm on clear space with no problems.

I have never had these particular issues until the update in November. I have been using IE for over 6 years and I should not have to change my browser. Unfortunately I would rather quit FT then change my browser!
Dec 15th---I have sent messages to FB and FT regarding the above problem---now I cannot message anyone on FT---I cannot boost trains---I cannot post Facilities---would someone please help me--this has been going on since the November update---I hate to complain--but things are getting worse not better--My caches are cleaned several times a day---I have uninstalled Flash player rebooted and reinstalled Flash player.

Hi 3 C Acres,
I am sorry but we cannot control what Facebook and Adobe change and cause certain browsers to not work. It would be a real shame for you to quit Farm Town because of other's actions. The developers have done what they can to fix the problem for everyone, but some things they just can't fix.
Have you checked to make sure 3rd party cookies and pop ups are allowed? Added Slashkey.com and Facebook.com to the exceptions for those?

I thought it meant the smaller of the two pine trees but apparently we now have a 3rd pine tree which is even smaller and it is harvested to get the pine cones, not like the other two which are chopped

I know they have been working hard to get all these bugs fixed, but I have one criticism and that is now when you plant and your farms have been fertilized it doesn't look like it did before, you could always see the fields were different when fertilized it made them a different shade somehow now it doesn't and they don't look like they are fertilized when they actually are, if that makes sense lol

Hi brenda steele,

The only change to display of crops when fertilized is if you have "Highlight Fertilized crops/trees" checked in your game settings. That option is still there.

I've just tried it on Opera for you and had no problems. Which cache did you clear, was it browser cache or FT memcache? Try closing your browser then reload and try again.

A couple of questions....first I see you now show that the pine cones come from harvesting the small pine trees. Right now it is only letting me chop them not harvest with the tree shaker. Is this the way it is going to work? Will we not get pine logs from the small pines? Also why can't we get pine cones for the big pines too?
Thanks for all the upgrades, fixes etc! You always keep this game interesting and fun!

Sorry but that doesn't clear up my questions. I understand there are 2 kinds of pine trees, small and big let me try to clarify. So far since the release I have only been able to chop the small pines the same as the big pines. My issue is if there is a difference between "harvest" and "chopping"? Another issue is if we still get PINE LOGS from the small pines or just the pine cones? Also since the big pines appear to have pine cones why can't we get pine comes from the big pines also. I have been a farmer since at least 2009.

Thank you for the update. Cannot find any issues so far. Like the watering of flowers with the eye icon now might save me a bit of farm cash cause I will not need it to water the whole farm. Would be nice - probably purchase soon though. Now I can see more clearly when the flowers disappear instead of worrying about missed ones.

Hi Dbutrfli:)

Taz is not available at this moment, but will try to help

If you go to the store, you will see we have 3 different pine trees, small pine tree ( this is the new one which you have to harvest to get pine cones), pine tree and big pine tree. The last 2 are the ones you can chop to get pine logs.

Hi tbirdcat,
I just checked your storage and I see from 60,000 to 70,000 for every item from your semi-trucks in there. Are you sure you have the filter set so you can see those items? Try setting the filter to All and the sort by alphabetical so you can check.

I have just multiplanted about 1000 small pines on a farm on clear space with no problems.

Oh I can do that, but up to now I have been able to keep on planting the same kind of tree (gifted ones) that I cannot get all at one time, with the others of the same kind even if I had flowers under that (not crops) and now I can't.. the green hand was made so that you could impose things on top of the others like you can with the facilities and it was working fine also with trees and flowers, now zilch, nada.. so I guess its farms for crops, farms for trees and farms for flowers since you cannot plant one or two together.. how many farms are we going to need? Regular farms have everything on the same land, why not us? LOL

I am wondering when the train cars currently in place will be updated with current items. Why is not zinc included. It is necessary and very much under produced as it stands. When will brass sheets be included? Why can't we get harvest time till on all water items?

On the whole this game is FANTASTIC and the upgrades are astounding and very well thought out. I love that many of the boxes don't show up anymore :)

Since the new release, I have noticed some funky behaviour with my xps. Yesterday, I planted a farm, and got a new total of xps; when I went to the next farm, I had fewer points, about what I would have gotten for the last fields that I planted. This morning, same thing--I went from 584,783,xxx down to 584,782,988 when I finished, saved and went to the next farm. About equivalent, again, to the one or two clicks on my 6x6 planter.... Any idea what's going on?

Something different just happened to me.It has to be facebook.

Been going back to the other to delete it and the stay on this page keeeps coming up. O well thought I would let you in on a different problem.Which really isn't a problem as long as I can farm on the good tab.Will keep trying to delete the other .Will let you know:D

Hi Darrell Joe,
This is not a Farm Town problem. It is a browser problem in that it is not responding to the full screen command. Please close and restart your browser and see if it works.

Hi beatysmom,
This has been reported to the developers. You are not losing points. For some reason it is showing more points than it should until you click the save or the game saves the data when you change farms.

Glad it's already been reported, I've noticed the same problem as beautysmom. I'm OK as long as I'm not really losing any XP - I can live with that! :):cool:

- When using the water can, if the Eye is closed the watered flowers will now disappear.
- When watering your neighbour flowers, the Eye is now appearing next to the Home icon.

So this is a feature, not a bug? What advantage is there to having your flowers disappear when you water them? It just makes the farm look weird.

Hi tnbskts,
I think the advantage is for those using the watering can more than those using the sprinklers. That doesn't mean it is perfect yet as they should show back up when you click on the green man.

If you select the watering can to water your flowers, the eye appears, and what you've said is true. However, I don't use the watering can, I use the brown mobile sprinkler. The eye does not appear when I select that tool, the flowers disappear after being watered, and the only way to get them back is to first click on a different tool (like a harvest, plow or sow tool, not the green man) or reload the farm.

When you use the watering can to water flowers and subsequently click on the green man, the flowers that have been watered reappear. The mobile sprinkler should work the same way - i.e., after you've watered the flowers and click on the green man, they should come back. Alternatively, the flowers could simply not disappear when using the mobile sprinkler, since the disappearance of the flowers in this case serves no purpose anyway.

That's what I was thinking too, but maybe the coding is just a lot easier if the disappearance is applied across the board. Anyway, when they fix it so that clicking the green man brings the flowers back, that'll help. At the moment it's a bit of a pain although not a serious one.

Hi Majik Merlin,

There are 3 Pine trees. The regular size Pine tree and the Big Pine trees are chopped and what you get pine logs from. The Small Pine tree is harvested and you get Pine cones from those.

I seem to be having a problem this morning. When I logged on and went to send gifts the pop up window did not show up with the names to click on, tried twice. Then when I went to post my ingredient requests, I clicked the x to choose one and nothing happened, closed out the fac manager, opened again and tried again, nothing. Afraid to try again as you only get 3 per 12 hrs! I just went to accept gifts, did then the send back to all did not work, nothing happened :( When I click it, it actually freezes the game and I have to reload.

I see this is now in place on my farm - Hello Farmer! Due to a recent Facebook change you may not be able to send gifts or boost trains if you are using the Internet Explorer or Edge browsers, we recommend using another browser like Chrome as a temporal workaround.

Hi AlyceAnn,
It would change because your browser can suddenly decide that those cookies and pop ups are from a site it thinks might be spam. The message you are seeing only refers to IE and Edge. It is a Facebook caused problem with only those two browsers.
If you are using Chrome then to prevent Chrome or your ad blocker from blocking those sites from sending cookies and pop ups then you need to tell it not to do so, by adding those sites to allow them.

I understand what you are saying but you are wrong. I'm using Chrome, my version is up to date, cookies and pop ups are totally allowed, I did check again. So someone may as well tell whomever needs to know that it is not just an IE and Edge problem.

Hi ALyceAnn,
Even though you allow both 3rd party cookies and pop ups, your browser is constantly updating which ones it will decide to block. If you are using an ad blocker plugin in Chrome and most do, it can also decide that those are spam and block them. In the case of IE and Edge then it was that everyone was having this problem. That is not the case with Chrome.

I not only checked that they were allowed (cookies and pop ups) I also did the exceptions! So even if what you say is true, it is also Chrome not JUST IE and Edge. Why do I feel that this is pointless. The problem is still on my farm, I did what was suggested and I still have the problem, if everyone insists that I don't because I use Chrome fine, then I will just give up and not bother you again. I love the game and have for years, but heaven forbid there is a problem, its just pointless to let anyone know.

Just for the record, its the same on FireFox. Sometimes it works and sometimes it don't.

I was having problems with the gifts this morning also. I had partial gifts showing and it wouldn't let me return gifts. I tried to click on "Forums" and nothing - like it was frozen.
I cleared memcache, etc. I checked to make sure Chrome was up to date (it was). I haven't changed any settings for pop-ups but decided to check them anyway. They were changed! I added the suggested settings and closed the browser and restarted.
It worked this time. I don't know if the update changed something? I have a desktop and laptop and it was doing the same thing.
I just thought I'd put it out there that some of the settings might have changed even though you haven't changed them.

Yes settings did change. I posted my facilities,and friends couldn't see them on my Facebook page.Yet the showed on the Farmtown Facebook Wall Request. I went and looked at my settings and the show to whomever, custom was checked.I checked friends and the problem was righted.I know for a fact I didn't change it to custom.

Yes, but ... the problem isn't that they initially disappear when you use the watering can or sprinkler, it's that they don't come back when you click on the green man if you've used the mobile sprinkler (whereas they do come back when you click on the green man if you've used the watering can).

This is really annoying because making the flowers disappear on watering is something that's only useful if you're using the watering can, not the sprinklers. Yet it sounds as though things are more difficult for the sprinkler users, if watering-can users can get the flowers back by clicking the green man and sprinkler users can't.

Hopefully the update to allow us to see flowers by clicking the green man will happen sooner rather than later. But ideally I'd prefer for the whole disappearing-flowers thing to not happen at all when we're using sprinklers, because there's no advantage to it, it's just a nuisance. The update from Raul mentioned watering cans, it didn't mention sprinklers, so I'm still hoping that applying it to sprinklers was a mistake and it'll be reversed so it really does only apply to watering cans.

Thank you Taz for responding - as I said in my original post, I was only reporting an issue and not asking for resetting of anything. Again this is only reporting of an issue as we have been asked many times before by the Developers to report.
Docmm mentioned that he had not received a pop up for his flowers and he is at the 7th dan degree. Not sure if his situation was due to the 12 hour situation or not. But this is comforting to know that maybe there are others out there that have experienced the same thing I experienced and has not report the issue. I hope that if other people that are experiencing this they will post it so that when the Developers read the forum they will see that more then 1 person is having this issue and look into it.

Taz again – this is not requesting a reset of anything – JUST A NOTIFICATION of an issue i experienced

Problems with gifting this morning. I accept/exchange a gift, send back whatever I was sent, then after about 6 gifts, everything freezes. I have to reload to make it work for the next 6 or so. I'm getting all my gifts, but the people I have to reload on are not. For example - when I go to return gifts. and the screen for that comes up, I select a gift to send, the gift screen goes away and nothing happens. Hopefully, this means the devs are preparing to release the Korean restaurant??? That's usually the answer for me when something happens in the game. The devs are working on something. :)

Hi Lance and docmm,
If you had done 5 posts within the lprevious 12 hours (like maybe for the pine cones) then you would not get the any more pop ups for belts to post until that 12 hours have past.

I had been offline for more than 16 hours when my Pine Cones 6th degree came up and I never did get the popup for any of the other Pine Cone levels. And popped up my orange marigolds never did. Always plant more than I need do I. And if wonder you do why I am inverting my sentences because Star Wars Episode VII premieres today it is! :p Reminding myself to go to the noon showing on Monday....

Just remember Murphy's law as it applies to Farm Town. As soon a you lose the patience with which you are waiting for a facility and spend what farm cash you have on larger harvesting tools or combines the FC facility will unlock. And you will have 3 farm cash left and be 1 quest shy of enough to earn more than just 1 buck each when it is time to redeem both types! (Says to self "don't buy the humongous plow, don't buy the humongous plow, don't buy the humongous plow!") :p

They are trying to find out foods that require copper, aluminum, pears, mangos, coconuts, bananas and any of the other products that are very hard to maintain to meet production.. lets not forget eggs, milk, cheese..etc..

Like the saying goes "old age is not for sissies" I have to say "this game is not to be understimated" they always throw a curve ball at us when we least expected.. :)

Well, it wasn't for me either. But I decided to take a risk on Farmer's Law and bought the humongous plow. After all, 30 farm cash is all it cost. And of course 7 more farm cash to go from having just 23 left to having 30 again should take only a week or 3....

Hi all

From Raul's notes for the New Release

Post-Release Updates - December 22nd, 6:00PM

These are all updates that are part of the next release:

- When working as an employee or Super neighbour your avatar will not move anymore as you farm, same as when you are working solo, however other users in the farm will see your avatar moving, so they have a better idea of which section of the farm you are working on.
- Before this release we had 6 zoom levels, from 1 (fully zommed out) to 6 (fully zoomed in). We just added another zoom level between 1 and 2 to make the jump less abrupt.
- After using the irrigator/water sprinkler we now show the feedback message as a floating text instead of the usual message box, so no extra click is required.
- After using the manure spreader we now show the feedback message as a floating text instead of the usual message box, so no extra click is required. However this change only applies to those who have the green manure spreader.
- When you mouse over your water items you will now see the Growth time as well even if you don't have any fishing tool selected.
- When fishing with the pole or boat, the small water circle animation or the net is now shown right where you clicked, not an inch below.
- Super neighbours and regular players invited to design together can now freeze and unfreeze flowers.
- Less bandwidth consumed while farming, which could have a positive impact on performance, specially for users with slower internet connections.
BugFix: There was an issue with the Eye that after using the water can, sprinkler and other tools, the worked items were not coming back to a visible state even after releasing the tool.
BugFix: Fixed the old bug of watering flowers and then not been able to harvest them right away unless the farm was reloaded.
BugFix: When finishing working a farm, after changing farms the XP and coins suddenly changed.
BugFix: Super neighbours with all permissions allowed for designing can't use the green hand when the employer has the green hand but the Super neighbour does not own one.

The Korean Restaurant will be released in a few hours.

Please open your storage and set it to From Facilities, then check how much sesame oil you have. Then open your oil factories and check how much you have to store. Store them, reload the game and then check your storage again.

Hi beverduster:)

Can you tell us which problem are you having with the farm stats.?

Farm Stats not working correctly here. I am on WF 4. This began around 6 PM Central time yesterday 12-22. I have tried all of the suggestions to remedy the problem--did this yesterday when the problem arose.

Farm Stats works fine for the farm on which I am working. It is when I try to access the information for All Farms that I receive the message: Connection to server timed out... along with the options of Clicking the Green Circle to Retry or the Red Circle to Reload. Also, if I exit that screen and then try to access the Quest Manager, I again receive the above message about Connection to server timed out along with the Options of Clicking Green Circle or Red Circle.

My only remedy is to hit Play and reload the farm in order to access the Quest Manager.

Like yesterday I followed all of the suggestions to fix the issue on my end.... to no avail.

Something major has to be going wrong here for the My Requests tab to go from bringing back the same 49 gifts over and over again to refusing to collect anything because it keeps saying I have not moved 148 pineapples into storage... And support still has not gotten back to me about the problem with the gifts coming back to the My Requests tab over and over now that there is a new problem.
Hi Qivis,
I just looked at your data and it doesn't show anything in your gift box. If you have cleared you memcache you may need to clear your browser cache too.

For people having this problem (I am having it too), remember that when you hire, you can click on the Show Work Info button to show which farms are ready to work for that type of hire. It is not ideal, but it is getting me by until the Stats tool is fixed.
