See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on May 24th, 4:10AM.

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=622266)//En français ici (http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=622322)

1. 10 Mothers Day items: 5 on the top of the Mothers Day category in the Store and 5 at the bottom.

2. Next 5 expansions for Farm 29: See prices below:

24x24 - 13000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
26x26 - 13500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
28x28 - 14000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
30x30 - 14500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
32x32 - 15000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. Belt and Dans for the next 10 facilities: Pediatric Supplies Factory, Antique Replica Factory, Scandinavian Restaurant, Korean Restaurant, Holiday Decor Factory, Ice Fishing Supplies Factory, Car Dealer Supplies Factory, British Restaurant, Argentinian Restaurant and Hospitality Supplies Factory.

4. Earn XP as part of the Job Completion Bonus when harvesting Trees and Flowers for others: This should increase the number of people willing to do these jobs in the Marketplace.

5. Increased capacity for the Gift Box: Now the items in the Gift Box that are sent from the Gift Page will all be combined by type and will not include the sender information anymore. You will be able to keep 150 gifts on your Gift Box plus about 130 Bonuses and Ingredient Packs at the same time. Also, flowers in your gift box will be placed one by one to your farm instead of 5 by 5, unless you have the Multi-Planter in which case the regular Multi-Planter functionality applies.

Note: Gifts sent from the Send Gift page are all consolidated into one entry, so if you receive 2 pineapple gifts each containing 15 pineapples, you will see only one pineapple image in your Gift Box with quantity 30.

6. Gifting Machines to expand Gift Box capacity (FC): Purple and Brown Gifting Machines will allow you to expand your Gift Box capacity to 500 and 1000 gifts respectively.

Note: This extra capacity only applies to regular gifts, which are the gifts you receive from the Send Gift page. The capacity for storing ingredient packs and bonuses will remain the same, at about 130.

7. Other Fixes and Improvements released in the past weeks:

- Many minor improvements to the Neighborhood Chains Contest.
BugFix: The current user picture in the neighbour bar is now showing correctly
BugFix: Users that were on a level below 150 were not able to add facilities to the Item Storage.
BugFix: Fixed an issue that caused the farm sizes in the Farm Selector to show 26x26 for most farms and also this caused issues with the FarmStats as well.
BugFix: Fixed a bug in the Mobile Lookout Tower tool that caused not all farms with work turning blue when visiting a Super Neighbour, this happened when you had less farms than your neighbour.
BugFix: Some users with a total of 2 farms were having issues marking one of the farms private.
BugFix: When fishing, if the water items had parts outside the farm and you clicked on those parts, the game got slower with time. Also, if using the Turbo Boat nothing happened. From now on, if you are fishing with the Turbo Boat you will be able to fish the whole water item even if you click on a part that is outside your farm.

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

Codfish Croquettes
Green Soup
Bacalhau Rice Stew
Seafood Feijoada
Eel Stew
Pork a Alentejana
Portuguese Steak
Drunken Pear

9. Cruise Supplies Factory (Coins): Produces Cruise Supplies.

Deck Chair
Ship Bell
Air Intake Stack
Engine Control Lever
Embarkation Ladder
Fire Sprinkler
Life Jacket
Monitoring Panel

New products from other facilities: Thick Linen Rope on the Textile and Spinning Mill.

10. Fire Station (Coins): Provides Firefighting Services and can be stocked with products from the Police-Fireman Supplies Factory.

New products from other facilities:

- Baking Soda in the Open-Pit Mine.
- Wye Valve, Fire Extinguisher, Firefighter Badge, Firefighter Axe, Firefighter Helmet and Firefighter Boots in the Police-Fireman Supplies Factory.

11. Cruise (FC): Provides Cruise Travel Services and can be stocked with products from the Cruise Supplies Factory and from many Restaurants.

Enjoy!

--Raul

BugFix: You can only earn XP when working for others harvesting trees or flowers as part of the job completion bonus at the very end of the process, not during the actual harvesting.

Post-Release Updates - May 13th, 5:30PM

-Increased capacity for storing regular gifts in your Gift Box, see post above for more details.
-Purple and Brown Gifting Machines will allow you to expand your regular gifts Gift Box capacity to 500 and 1000. Regular gifts are those that your friends send you using the Send Gift page.
-Gifts sent from the Send Gift page are all consolidated into one entry, for example:

- If a friend send you a cow and another friend send you another cow, you will see only 1 cow image on your Gift Box with quantity 2.

- If a friend send you 5 x Roses and another friend send you 5 x Roses, you will see only 1 Rose image on your Gift Box with quantity 10.

Post-Release Updates - May 14th, 2:30AM

- Released the Fire Station Service Facility. The Fire Station was an existing building that was available at level 122. It was moved to level 349 and is now a Service Facility.

The Joshua Tree was added to level 122 to replace the Fire Station.

Post-Release Updates - May 16th, 10:30PM

BugFix: Corrected the price for the Baking Soda in the Open-Pit Mine.
BugFix: When storing animals from Gift Box to the Animal Buildings, you don't have to reload the game to see the correct numbers of stored animals.
BugFix: Corrected issues with lost Flour, Sugar and Coffee received as Gifts or as an Ingredient Pack. However this fix only applies to future Flour, Sugar and Coffee you receive as Gifts or as an Ingredient Pack, the ones you already lost can not be recovered.

Post-Release Updates - May 18th, 12:30AM

- Facebook fixed a bug that was affecting a percentage of users that could not post from any facilities or ask for ingredients. There are still other bugs remaining in this area that are affecting only a subset of the facilities.
BugFix: Storing baits from the Gift Box should now correctly go toward your farm available baits used when fishing, instead of your storage.
BugFix: Corrected issue that may have caused some gifts to be lost when storing plants from Gift Box to the Item Storage and there were not enough space in the Item Storage.
BugFix: Fixed a bug with the Multi-Planters that were not consuming fuel when planting from the Gift Box or the Item Storage.

BugFix: Could not ask Ingredient Packs for these Products -> Brass Sheet and Paradise Poppy Pot.

BugFix: Image not showing when posting from these Facilities -> Cruise, Cruise Supplies Factory, Trophy Factory and the Pet Shop.

Please report if you are still having any issues with posting to Facebook.

Post-Release Updates - May 21st, 4:30AM

- Released last years Memorial Day decorations.

Known Issues

- Facebook just confirmed that they introduced a bug recently that do not allow games in Facebook on accounts with lot of friends (approximately more than 2800) to retrieve the full list of friends. This is currently affecting all the areas that requires friend interaction like boosting trains, working facilities, adding neighbours, etc for those users. They say they are currently working on a solution.

In the meantime, we just released a temporary workaround that just assume for now that your facebook friend list is the same as your neighbour list, at least this way you can go now and send gifts to your neighbours again and start working your neighbours facilities again.

However those users with approximately more than 2800 friends will not be able to interact with most of their friends, only their neighbours, until facebook provide a final resolution to the problem.

There are some exceptions, for example you can still send gifts to any of your friends if you go to the Send Gift page and select the 'Search Friends Manually' tab and search manually for your friend.

the cruise s/b coins as we always have 2 coins facilities with every upgrade!!
i won't get any facilities until this is cleared up!!

Eltina Flowers
May 05 2016, 07:49 PM
Ditto on the cruise ship. Thought it strange that the supply facility was coins and the facility it supplied was FC. Please straighten out and refund my FC. Thx. Going to be fun making the cruise "real". Would like a Portuguese flag to go with the restaurant.

May 05 2016, 07:55 PM
thanks for the new update but I have purchased the two fc ones, they show in my farmcash activity in Account, I can see them on the farms where I placed them, but they DO NOT show in my facility manager and when I go back to the store, and set the filter to un owned, they are showing there... I paid 30fc for the Cruise, 32fc for the Portugese Restaurant, and 3,300,000 coins for the Cruise Supplies Factory. Help!! :) I understand that there is probably a glitch happening, but hope it gets fixed soon or I am out 62fc..

Hi Aussie Rae,

Try exiting the game and load it again. Then use the search box in the Facility manager to find your new facilities. Mine are showing up fine in there.

Hi Matrix,
Please try clearing your memcache (link below), then when the page of unsetting text opens close that as it is done.
If your farm is open close it. Then reopen and try again.

11. Cruise (Coins): Provides Cruise Travel Services and can be stocked with products from the Cruise Supplies Factory.
Taz says, The cruise ship is 30 farm cash. Email has been sent to developers to getr the release notes corrected
I say what a bunch of bs. we always get the Coin Service Fac for the products the coin Fac produces. The release note does not need corrected the Store does. Not fair for fixed income people that have to carefully balance their real life money

May 05 2016, 08:54 PM
In checking the Portuguese Restaurant to read the items to be produced, I noticed that a unit will sell for ( 0 ) zero coins and a batch will also sell for ( 0 ) zero coins. Either a glitch or a massive discrepancy in currency rates. lol Yes,,, I have cleared everything,,,, turned off browser and restarted the game just now,,,,, Same story,,,, zero coins. Hmmmm ??

Bought all three, see them on the farm, but I load them and they remain empty and not in facility manager. Tried putting them in storage and taking out, didn't help. See the FC activity, but still see items in the market. Cleared history and cache, left farm, etc.

Taz D
May 05 2016, 09:18 PM
Hi All,
Email has been sent to developers about the missing facilities in the facility manager and showing as not owned in the store. Asked about the selling price discrepancy in the Portugese Restaurant. And the cost discrepancy for the Cruise ship. Please be patient until we can get an answer or Raul posts an answer in the release announcement.

I can find my Portuguese restaurant by changing the facility manager to "Alphabetically" and then scrolling down to it or by "Utilization" and putting it in the search

Otherwise it doesn't show up in the facility manager

I understand it's been sent off to the devs...just wanted to let you know how I found mine in my facility manager

Works for me. Cruise and Portuguese Restaurant Facilities appear as "owned" in store and show up in Facility Manager. And I paid 30FC as well :-)

Why does the cruise ship have to be placed on land and not on water (river or sea using the orange hand) FT has become excessively slow this morning and keeps on jamming up since the latest update. It took me 5 times longer to refill facilities this morning than it did yesterday.

Hi Rodneycs,
The cruise ship can be placed on a farm with the water cover or the water paths. As with any facility or decoration building it can't be placed on top of a working water unless maybe if you use the green freestyle hand.
Every body is on the servers right now checking out the new release. When that happens then things slow down, because of the abnormal load on the servers.

May 05 2016, 09:45 PM

I am assuming the reason I can't make the thick linen rope is because my facilities are not showing in the facility manager and are still showing as not owned in the market. Also items posted requesting help are not going into storage after received.

REID_MAC
May 05 2016, 10:25 PM
In the most recent release you have said that the cruise facility (clients) is coins but when buying it the store it cost FC $ of 30 which is the correct one please?

Hi Redqueen,
The thick linen rope is made in the Textile and Spinning factory. Should still show up there even if the otrher facilities do not show in facility manager.

Thanks for your reply, I was aware of where it is made, I just wanted to point out that even though it shows up there, I can't start production of it, I have tons of the raw material.

I also just went and loaded all the Thick Linen Rope, posted to get workers to help, checked again and nothing shows as being started at all, another glitch for us all, lol
Collected from posted links from others and have 37,557 showing in storage with a selling price of 0

Why am I getting bonus dans for my neighbors working the thick linin rope in my textile factory
Hi lortnagayle,
You will get bonus dans because you stocked the facility and those dans are because of that and not because your neighbors worked your facilities to produce them. The thick linen rope was added to a facility that already had dans, so that product also gets those.

Post-Release Updates - May 5th, 11:50PM

Hi TribalCat,
Yes. It was not supposed to have all the expansions available at that time. A few did manage to get them all before it was corrected. You were one of those. Yours will not change.

"4. Earn XP as part of the Job Completion Bonus when harvesting Trees and Flowers for others: This should increase the number of people willing to do these jobs in the Marketplace."

well this one's not really fair... why not just give xp for harvesting trees and flowers (and eventually fishing?) for everyone? i avoid going to the marketplace as i'd rather help my neighbors first, and it would be great for them to be earning extra xp as well, especially those on lower levels!

Hate to be a pain but I still do not have the Portugese Restaurant nor the Cruise showing in my facility manager, they are still showing as being paid for in my Accounts section. The Cruise Supplies Factory is showing but not the other 2 fc facilities. DISREGARD.. I went back to my farm, uncovered Facilities and took another snip shot of the Portugese Restaurant and the Cruise, and then suddenly they appeared when next I opened the facility manager, :) ft works in mysterious ways, :)

Another thing is that the Cruise Ship requires items from SEVEN different restaurants which means that you will have to pay approximately 210 FC to buy all of the restaurants in order to stock the cruise ship if you don't have them. ANOTHER CASH COW. How god damn greedy can you guys get??!! Millions of people play this game and I'm sure buy FC. The more you have, the more you want. When are you planning on building a 500 FC tool. I'm sure that is next on your agenda.

Are any of the items to make in the cruise part facility go into any coin service? or must one buy the cruise service to make use of the products made? Usually the facility and service match - for those of us that can't afford cash (fc)

thehufarm
May 06 2016, 02:57 AM
All the cruise items [coin facility] supplies go to the cruise ship which is FC. That makes no sense since people who bought it with coins should be able to use those items in the ship which should be coin also. I wish you'd change it from a FC facility to a coin facility.

lburn11
May 06 2016, 02:57 AM
No Shirl. You have to buy the cruise ship with FC and not only that, you have to own 7 different restaurants to totally stock the cruise ship and most, if not all, of them require FC for purchase. It is such a joke. Time to find another game that isn't greedy for cash like these guys are becoming.

I agree with the previous posters who've said that the cruise ship should be a coin facility, as originally intended, even if it means refunding the people who've bought it for cash. Having the ship be a cash facility makes the cruise ship supply factory basically worthless; we're just making stuff we can't use.

Thanks for the update, Raul. But you should know that the gift box is being inconsistent while you work on the planned increase for the next week or two. A moment ago I got a "your gift box is full" message with only 83 items in it instead of the usual 125 items allowed and only a few minutes before that the number was 125!

And by the way, one of my Super Neighbors is still unable to do anything because he gets stuck on "loading user..." in spite of clearing the caches of Farm Town, all 4 of his browsers, and the Macromedia settings.

I dont understand why you say that the cruiser being FC and the factory coin makes cruiser worthless. How one pays either facility certainly makes no difference as to how they function, doesn´t it? maybe I am missing something?

I think the "complaint" has more to do with ownership of Restaurants (many require a FC purchase).

It takes the products from the Restaurants to stock the Cruise Ship. So if you need to pay FC for the Cruise, it is not going to be as productive if you have not already spent a lot of FC on the Restaurants.

However, even if the Cruise was available for coin, you would still only be able to stock it from FC-Restaurants..... same end result.

Not true tnbskts.... Like many other facilities that you don't own the pair that go together, your products made in a facility (not used elsewhere) can always be sold for coin at the market. I have found this can be worth billions a month for some users.

BRAVO !!! Well said.

This game is simple but a ton of people still find reasons to whine about everything. Buy what you can afford. Stock the products in facilities if you own them, and if you don't own them, then SELL the stuff you made in coin facility in the market. "SELL items I don't use"

In my opinion the cruise ship has the right size when place on the big sea, I have it on my farm called "by the sea" and of course I have it as a beach resort with all the big and small sea strips, it fits perfectly, same size as the fishing boat.. don't change it..

I just did a test being hired in the market for trees. XP is now also given upon harvest as well as the completion bonus. There is no XP upon harvesting trees as a super neighbor. Since XP has been added to both original harvest and the bonus, why not have the same XP for tree harvest for all with the bonus added with marketplace hires?

Hi HandyDan,

Try exiting the game completely then load it again and try again.

If that doesn't work also 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. Then reload and try again.

Still nothing to work with those of us at the top level. We are all beginning to believe that FT is pushing out the higher level people who have spent tons of real money on this game over the years. We can no longer share gifts with our neighbors without spending a fortune. We still can't earn FC. We may get 25 FC every three months like a dog being thrown a bone. We are all getting tired of farming with nothing in sight for us but to pay more money. Losing interest here! But then, we believe that is exactly what the developers wish for their loyal players!

What is in this for those of us at level 725 (which is not accurate since we have continued to work our farms with no increase and no FC. Why can't we earn FC at every level like the lower people? 25 FC every 3 months doesn't even buy one facility. How can we earn more FC with all your restrictions? I don't have a lot of the FC facilities, so even doing the quests limits me to maybe one FC per week or maybe none.

I dont understand why you say that the cruiser being FC and the factory coin makes cruiser worthless. How one pays either facility certainly makes no difference as to how they function, doesn´t it? maybe I am missing something?

A lot of people aren't going to pay cash for facilities. So that means that they can pay coins for the factory and make stuff in the factory but they can't put that stuff into the cruise ship, so they have to sell it as is. So, no, it's not worthless, it's just worth less.

I'm glad to see this was a mistake and not a trend toward trying to get people to spend cash on facilities by making the second-level facility cash when the first-level facility is coins. But still, since it WAS a mistake, it'd be nice if they put it right by making the cruise ship a coin facility like its factory.

Hi enelyaa,
You can not directly place it on the seacoasts from the store. You will need to place it on the farm then use the green freestyle hand tool to move it on top of the seacoasts if that is what you want to do.

I think the decision to provide XPs only to non super neighbors, non neighbors, and non buddies, and only when players are hired in the market is very short sighted.

I recently had a low level player add me as a super neighbor because she had chosen to put her time and effort and FC into increasing the size of her farms rather than investing in tools other than those for harvesting and plowing. She has no combines to harvest her large, stacked farms with.

She recently asked me to plant her farms. What did I receive for doing this for her? *NOTHING AT ALL*

There is nothing paid out when a farmer plants for another farmer. There are no XPs either. Good will only goes so far and I had to tell her not to ask me to do her work in the future since Slashkey apparently does not value the work long time players do enough to reward them for it.

The same mentality applies to the new trees and flowers XP scheme apparently. I don't understand why there should be XPs when some people do the work, but not when others do. What reasonable rationale can there be for that decision?

Hi Chattin,
If you are using your combine to harvest, plow and plant her farms you are getting 10% of the crop you harvest plus and 25% of the price of the crops in the market in coins for that. You get paid plus XP for plowing and you get XP for planting.
SO you get something for each of those jobs.

Thanks Taz for the explanation about how it's supposed to be, but I was watching for the coin and XP indicators while I worked through a number of farms (planting only) and there were no changes in either one while I was planting the farms.

On another note, I tried refilling my facs a bit ago using START ALL.... I was amazed to see so many facs still at 0, and with START buttons lit. I manually hit START on a few of them and they did fill.... so apparently START ALL is having problems too.

I have long had problems with facilities that partially load with START ALL, but I have to go into those facs and manually hit ALL on several products in order to get those facs to 100%.

Who has the time to manually check each and every fac and each and every product to see what'd broken?

Hi Chattin,
Have you looked to make sure that you have a check on each facility you want to fill and a check inside on each product that you want to load that isn't loading with the Start All?
I find that if they all don't load I click Play and reload farm and then click on Start all again. That will usually finish the loading.
With as much XP as you have just watching the XP counter will not show you the change as you can't see the smaller numbers behind the farm name.

I agree but with the new coin facility, all the items go into the cruise ship which is FC. Usually if you buy the coin facility, those items normally go into a coin service facility. Not this time. The work facility items go no where unless you use FC to buy the cruiser.

5. Increased capacity for the Gift Box (coming next week): Now the items in the Gift Box that are sent from the Gift Page will all be combined by type and will not include the sender information anymore. You will be able to keep 150 gifts on your Gift Box plus about 130 Bonuses and Ingredient Packs at the same time. Also, flowers in your gift box will be placed one by one to your farm instead of 5 by 5, unless you have the Multi-Planter in which case the regular Multi-Planter functionality applies.

6. Gifting Machines to expand Gift Box capacity (FC) (coming next week): Purple and Brown Gifting Machines will allow you to expand your Gift Box capacity to 500 and 1000 gifts respectively.

Could we get a Fast Track on these tools like Monday May 9 or Tuesday May 10 these are needed on my side Urgently. I suspect others are waiting for this a Useful Feature at last.

In your notes you say "BugFix: When fishing, if the water items had parts outside the farm and you clicked on those parts, the game got slower with time. Also, if using the Turbo Boat nothing happened. From now on, if you are fishing with the Turbo Boat you will be able to fish the whole water item even if you click on a part that is outside your farm." That works for about one click for me, after that clicking on a water item where it lies outside the farm does nothing. Or maybe it's because my water items are overlapping - it seems like when I try to fish overlapping seacoasts or lakes, I could click all day with my 5x5 Turbo Boat and still never get all the fish.

If you have water items off the edge of the farms, only the Turbo boat works.

You have the Fishing boat 5x5 but you would need to purchase the Fishing boat Turbo, (purple one) in the store.

You have the Fishing boat 5x5 but you would need to purchase the Fishing boat Turbo, (purple one) in the store.

Thank you, I guess I should have noticed that. :)

Me and all my friends that are at level 725 totally agree with you Carol. We are getting rather bored not being able to earn Farm cash as we work daily. I guess if we get bored enough we will invest in a different game.

Yep that is right on!

thank you for the updates.

however,
the fact that the Cruse Facility is FC is throwing out the Factory vs Facility ratio.

ie
you need FC to have enough Cruse to stock with the Cruse Factory products.

I have a question regarding the Neighborhood Chain contest. Seems to me like every week I end up in 10th Place. Never changes. My friend told me she is coming in 3rd and 4th. Are all the people who show up on My Neighborhood chains section the ones that are on my team. I don't understand it. How it is that the neighbor who told me she has always been 3rd or 4th has been on my Chain section, but I have only been 10th. Was she not in my personal chain? How do you know why the others always come out on top of your score. I am just very suspicious because I farm everyday and you said we would be with people who are about equal. How does it work?

Hi ckerider,
You are not competing directly against your neighbors. If you check the list under competing Neighborhoods, you will see that none of those you compete against are your neighbors.
Your neighbors who have and fill the 4 facilities during the week are on your neighborhood chain. You are also in their neighborhood chains and help them out in their competition.
So they may be 3 or 4th in their competition of 10 players where you may be 10th in your competition. You don't have all the same neighbors, so she may have other neighbors that are providing her more points than you are getting from yours.

There have been a number of recent occasions in which I have been in the marketplace, clicked on the home icon, selected "LAST", and instead been taken to my default farm. I don't think I had this happen until the April release.

Hi earlgrey,
The Last button take s you to the last farm you were on before you went to the market. If that farm was your default farm then that would be where you would go. The Last and Default buttons are right next to each other and maybe you slipped and hit default instead.

Note: This extra capacity only applies to regular gifts, which are the gifts you receive from the Send Gift page. The capacity for storing ingredient packs and bonuses will remain the same, at about 130.

This still wont Apply until the Release of the Upgraded Gift box. Tools in Question how about release of these within 24 hours?

Hi DianeCK,
It was only added for strangers from the market as an incentive to get them to harvest trees and flowers. They only get the experience if they complete all jobs on a farm.

Yes, I know what they are supposed to do, and no, I wasn't on my default farm before I went to the marketplace. The first couple of times this happened I thought maybe I had accidentally clicked on the Default button instead of the Home button, but after it happened a few more times, I think the Last button took me to Default instead. It doesn't happen often, but until recently it never happened at all.

BugFix: You can only earn XP when working for others harvesting trees or flowers as part of the job completion bonus at the very end of the process, not during the actual harvesting.

from the way this is phrased i assume that super neighbors will NOT get XPs for harvesting trees or flowers as they don't get a job completion bonus, correct?
i'm sure that somebody already asked or talked about. if so it might be a good a idea to put it into Raul's update. ;)

...and of course i'm probably not the only one who thinks that that isn't fair!

Hi vonalm,

No super neighbours will not get this as they never have got the job completion bonus and that has not changed. The xp was added to the bonus chest as an incentive for workers at market to do those jobs.

The error that was corrected was that they were earning xp when doing the jobs as well as in the bonus chest.

Hi Stu3,

The items in the Gift Box that are sent from the Gift Page are now combined by type . So all of one type will show the total amount you accepted in one box rather than individual amounts in several boxes. When you click the store, it will count up ALL the gifts in there to give you the full amount so if you had >>
30 pineapples ( 2x15 pineappples)
30 blueberries (2x15 blueberries)
6 fuel (6x1 Fuel)
that would show you 66 to store, not 3.

Hi Franny2,

Are you seeing what looks like fewer gifts in there or none at all?
The items in the Gift Box that are sent from the Gift Page are now combined by type . So all of one type will show the total amount you accepted in one box rather than individual amounts in several boxes. So if you accepted 10 gifts of fuel, instead of seeing 10 boxes saying 1x Fuel, you will now see 1 box saying 10x Fuel (double that if you own the green gifting tool)

If you are seeing none at all please 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. Then reload and see if the gifts reappear, or try just accepting one and see if it makes it to your gift box.

When I went to bed last night, I checked that "run until full" sheet on my facilities so I'd see if there was anything I needed to boost. The only thing I needed was about 80 pork and I figured I'd either make up for that overnight and/or in gifts this morning - so I expected to be able to have a full run this morning. However, when I checked it again now, it's saying I need tons of ingredients that it doesn't make sense I would need. For example, it's saying I have 0 baking soda stored and I own 27 open-pit mines. I went to my open-pit mines to make sure it's still checked and it is. However, when I go to the "What's Pending" tab, there is no baking soda being produced. I tried starting a load a baking soda manually and I could. I normally use the "Start All" at the top and my Open-Pit mines have been saying 100% - so I know the baking-soda has been producing.

Baking soda is just one example. There are also 8 items from the Police-Fireman's supply (Firefighter Badge, Wye Valve, ax, helmet, etc.). Most of those (6 items) are like the baking soda in that they're saying I have zero stored. And again, I checked the Police-Fireman's supply and everything is checked but the firefighter items I'm missing are NOT in the "What's Pending" tab.

This doesn't make sense to me - especially since last night I had plenty of these items so they didn't show in the "Run until full" thing - then I wake up this morning and they're there.

Edit: I see new items have been released. I guess that's it. Sorry.

On a more importanr matter, the new brown gift box allegedly increases my total gifts count to 1000....

However, when I went to one of the numerous FT gifts sites, I used to regularly see around 140 boxes x Tomatoes (x 15) or Potatoes (x 15), or sausages (x 50).

If we take tomatoes as an example, that would give me around 2100.

My new "limit" has therefore decreased?!

Hi FrankDieter,

Look at the amounts for each box. For example if you accepted 10 gifts of 15x tomatoes, instead of seeing 10 separate gifts saying 15x tomatoes each, you will see 1 gift saying 150x tomatoes

That's understood already, and not the issue that I am raising:

The new way of counting seems to have reduced the overall total quantity of gifts we can get from the gifts sites.

Whereas before, I could in theory have 140 gift boxes of hot dog sausage in my Gift Box, each box contains 50 sausages, so that would be 7000 sausages in total. As I had the maximum FC Gift Box in my storage prior to the new ones coming out a day or so ago, I should get double gifts, i.e. 14,000 sausages.

The latest release notes by Raul seem to imply the max is now 1000, so as you can see I am either being very much short-changed, or the logic behind these new "bigger" gift boxes is not quite right or clear?!

Hi FrankDieter,

I am not aware of any limit on the maximum amount you can store of an individual gift. Your post is in the correct are for the developers to see it and perhaps they will expand their explanation of it.

I did try accepting a couple hotdogs form a gift site and they did double as they should, but i did not go and accept the quantity you describe.

I do see in your data that your brown gifting tool is still on one of your farms, perhaps try adding that to your storage and see if that makes any difference.

Ok Some have asked me this and i have Confirmed it If you Accept a Gift of 400x Sea Water Bait as an example and you have the Double Gift Machine then in the New Look Giftbox this will show as 800x Sea Water Bait the more of that item you Accept the Higher your Amount under that item goes. it takes 1 slot viewed on new gift box not multiple items show like old style with smaller gift box there is 3 Sizes of giftbox the New one has increased to 150 Gifts PLUS Additional Batches that use to be counted as gifts so instead of being able to store upto 125 gifts including batch and bonus items previously now you should beable to 150 Gifts Plus upto 130 batches/bonus items

If you Buy the Purple Gift Machine this Alters your totals from 150 Gifts & 130 Bonus items. Purple Gift Machine is 500 Gift & 130 Bonus Items. Brown Gift Machine is 1000 Gift Items & 130 Bonus/Batch ingredients.

That's understood already, and not the issue that I am raising:

The new way of counting seems to have reduced the overall total quantity of gifts we can get from the gifts sites.

Whereas before, I could in theory have 140 gift boxes of hot dog sausage in my Gift Box, each box contains 50 sausages, so that would be 7000 sausages in total. As I had the maximum FC Gift Box in my storage prior to the new ones coming out a day or so ago, I should get double gifts, i.e. 14,000 sausages.

The latest release notes by Raul seem to imply the max is now 1000, so as you can see I am either being very much short-changed, or the logic behind these new "bigger" gift boxes is not quite right or clear?!

:confused:

Hi FrankDieter,

Just heard back from the developers on this one. The maximum the gift box will hold on this is 7500 which is the equivalent of 150 x 50 hotdogs. With the green gifting machine you would only be able to accept 75 to get the same amount as they are doubled. That is under the assumption that you do not have any other gifts in your gift box at the time, as those would take up additional space.

I've read the posts that say the Joshua Tree is a decoration, but I can't find it in Farm Decor, Fun, or Other - not to mention Trees. I did a search and found it. Something for the devs to think about - when we search for an item, is there a way to let us know which store category it's in? That would be very helpful.

Love the new update. Thanks for keeping the game interesting and fun.

Ok folks here's something to answer ...... In the post release info it states:- The Joshua Tree was added to level 122 to replace the Fire Station. Umm how can a tree replace a building, what is this tree used for as I can't see it in the tree section at all !!!! April Fools day has gone hasn't it or am I being really stupid here ?
Hi meirwen,
To explain this, the Joshua tree was before this available only at a much higher level and the fire staion at level 122 as a decoration. Now the fire station is a facility and the available level for the Joshua tree was lowered to 122.

Hi NJones,
The Joshua Tree is in the Farm Decor section of the store. Sort that section in alphabetical and you should be able to find it.

The developers forgot to mention that if you already had the fire station it activated as a facility because I didn't realise it was on my third farm from years ago and only found out in the facility manager today after I bought it yesterday and luckily placed it on a different farm. I am not so worried seeing it is a farmcoins purchase but it is a bit obsolete having 2 of them.

Hi Lara,

Whenever something is released, remember to read all the notes at the bottom as quite often new useful information is posted there. Here's what was posted at the time the fire station was released >>

Post-Release Updates - May 14th, 2:30AM

- Released the Fire Station Service Facility. The Fire Station was an existing building that was available at level 122. It was moved to level 349 and is now a Service Facility.

The Joshua Tree was added to level 122 to replace the Fire Station.

I exchanged all gifts and got 76 x goose. Then I selected Move and it asked if I wanted to move 76 goose to their building. I clicked the green check. I then went to the coop and it showed only 1 goose there.

I had to reload that farm and it then showed 76 in the coop.

Is this how it is supposed to work...having to reload the farm before the animal count corrects itself??? Attached are photos. Thanks.

Am I misunderstanding the gift box update? When 167 walnut trees are combined to 1 item with a quantity of 167 should that still be one item? It's telling me the gift box is full. I read the update to mean that I could have tomatoes x 45, potatoes x 100, walnut trees x 100 and have 3 items in the gift box. Was it only a display change and not a functionality change? I'd like to see see the items go straight to storage and save the gift box for bonuses and ingredients we've requested.

Well, I went to buy the Gifting Machine to increase my box to 500 - even though most replies tend to lean toward the 'we are getting boned' opinion . I CAN NOT buy it, without buying the PRIOR 4 gifting machines, which have NOTHING to do with the storage box itself, to the tune of 150 Farm Cash.... not counting the 40 Farm Cash for the expansion to 500. If I would choose to expand to whatever comes next, then it would be ANOTHER 40 Farm Cash.

Am I correct ? Am I missing something or am I mis-informed?? Not sure I want to spend 230 Farm Cash to bump up the gift box. Might be much much easier just planting the tomatoes ....

Yes ??

if you click on the ? in the top right corner, another window will open and then you will discover that you can find out what this product makes.. where its used.. and where its placed.. its made in the Open Pit mine, The Police-Firemans Supplies uses it to make Fire Extinguishers and then they get sent to the Fire Station. Anywhere you see a ? you can click on it to get access to more information. Maybe you are not scrolling down far enough in the Open Pit Mine menu to see the Baking Soda.. its opposite the Marble Rock.

We cash-poor folk were supposed to get the cruise ship, but instead it was made into a FC fac. oh well... then we got to buy a fac that made materials for the cruise ship we couldn't afford; then we got to use a fire station we already own; then we got a joshua tree that does nothing but sit there.

Hi anniesgrannie,

Its the display of them that has changed. Each gift still counts as one, but you will only see the same type of gift all in one box. So if you have walnuts, potatoes, tomatoes the gift box will show 3 gifts, meaning 3 different types of gift.

So 1 walnut tree, 1 gift of 15xpotatoes, and one gift of 12xtomatoes, all count as one gift each. If you had 45 tomatoes that is 3 gifts, and so on.

When you click the "store ingredients" or another store option, it will show you how many of those items you are about to store.

This may not be the right place for this but I didn't see a place to post about the Neighborhood Chains quest.

This is a suggestion for the developers to make more money. ; )

Bottom line: I think you should post the overall results from the very beginning. Here's what's happened:

At first, I was all into it - bought new FC facilities to help our group do better, etc. But after several weeks of placing 6, 7 or 8, I had pretty much lost interest. Then THIS week, when they posted how our group was doing in relation to others, we ranked #5. Today I checked and we're #2 which is VERY exciting! Problem is, there are only 2 days left. I thought about buying an extra FC facility but it's not really one I want and there are only 2 days left. HOWEVER, had I had longer to be excited about this, I probably WOULD have bought extra facilities, i.e., more money for the developers.

I guess I can boost my facilities more and also post more. I'm still not sure I understand exactly what the ranking is based on. It seems like if we have 1 facility with 10 items in it, but we post that 1 facility 10 times a day, that gets a higher score than 10 facilities that are completely full, posted once a day. Is that right? That we're incentivized for # of posts, not for how full our facilities are?

As I suspected in terms of assorted gift categories (choosing from the gift list vs requesting ingredients), but if as you mention ingredient requests are listed individually, this is what my original comment was about. If I'm absolutely certain 3 Neighbors have replied to my ingredient request, they're not showing up in my Gift Box. Highly likely it's just a little bug that will be worked out eventually.

Hi yramski:)

Collecting gifts has changed. When you collect gifts of a same type you will only see the pic of that gift but with the total amount you accepted.

For example: if you collected 3 gifts x15 blueberries and 10 gifts x20 ham, then your gift box will show you the pic of blueberries with a total amount of 45 and a pic of ham with a total amount of 200

It makes very little difference to those who may not have the oil refinery and zero fuel though since they receive a message saying "you do not have enough fuel" if they try to move the trees onto their farms when this is so. I have received a few complaints from neighbors about this since everyone may only refill the fuel once a day!

With nearly 3500 farming friends many are much newer farmers who have not earned enough levels to have the farm cash available to buy it. And a few have not even unlocked the Oil Refinery yet and find they cannot get enough even from working my factories. (I have 5 oil refineries and keep them producing fuel all the time as a favor to my facility workers.)

Hi Majik Merlin:)

We tried the same but we couldnt reproduce your problem.

Please store all gifts you have in your gift box including the animals, and then try clearing your memcache (link below), you will see a list of unsettings, close that window and the farm if it is open. Then reopen and try to accept gifts again.

BugFix: Corrected issue that may have caused some gifts to be lost when storing plants from Gift Box to the Item Storage and there were not enough space in the Item Storage.
BugFix: Fixed a bug with the Multi-Planters that were not consuming fuel when planting from the Gift Box or the Item Storage.

Post-Release Updates - May 18th, 3:50AM

BugFix: Could not post from these Facilities -> Sugar Refinery, Oil Refinery, Chocolate Factory, Air Freshners Factory, Bike Shop, Trophy Shop, Tea House and Sports Arena.

BugFix: Could not ask Ingredient Packs for these Products -> Brass Sheet and Paradise Poppy Pot.

Hi bjyhey3,

This is because at the time the baking soda was released it had a capacity of 15 days instead of 7 days. This was corrected, but it will take time for the excess products to be done, then it will stop showing over 100%.
