See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on June 28nd, 12:00PM.

Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following new features and bug fixes: EN ESPAŅOL AQUI (http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=629678)

1. 8 Fathers Day decorations: 1 as gift, 5 in the top of the Fathers Day category in the store and 2 at the bottom.

2. 25 new levels: Located in the Buildings, Furniture and Farm Decor categories in the store. The top level is now 850.

3. 44 x 44 Farm expansions for farms 21 to 32: 25,000,000,000 coins or 30 farm cash each.

4. Regular Seeder and Combine Harvest-Plant 18 x 18 (FC): With these regular crop tools you can work on 324 crop fields at a time.

Note: To buy these tools you *do not* need to own any of the extended mode crop tools.

5. Seeder Ex and Combine Harvest-Plant Ex 7 x 7 with extended mode support (FC): These crop tools will work all fields in a squared area the size of 7x7 fields using the new faster method of farming, only highlighting a fixed squared section of the farm.

The main benefit of these tools is for working up to 784 partially overlapped fields at once. Overlapping fields is still not officially supported but if you do it on your farms or work on other players farms that do overlap fields, these new set of tools will enable a much faster farming.

Note: To buy these tools you *do not* need to own any of the regular crop tools 18x18. However, say you are using a Combine Harvest-Plant Ex of any size, if you switch to the highlight mode and you also own the regular Combine Harvest-Plant 18 x 18, then that's the Combine that will be selected instead of the regular Combine Harvest-Plant 16 x 16.

6. Performance Optimizations:

- All tools should perform faster now, this include regular and extended mode tools, however the speed increase is much more noticeably when using the extended mode tools because there is no need to highlight all items. We were able to harvest a farm full of trees at twice the speed using the extended mode tools, however this may vary depending on the users computer.

- The game now consumes much less memory so it should experience much less frequent flash crashes due to memory constrains.

- Most farms filled with workable plants (crops, trees and flowers) will now load much faster. The less variety of plants, the faster the farm should load, however we are still experimenting with more optimizations to make farms with different types of plants load faster as well.

7. Other Improvements:

a) Added new 'Owned' and 'Not Owned' filters in the Store for the Tools category so you can quickly find the tools that you already own and the ones you are still missing
b) Some of the big crop tools when working in highlight (non extended) mode were not highlighting the targeted fields correctly, sometimes they were highlighting fields that were not in the correct squared area for the tool
c) Added tooltip when mouse over the - and + zoom icons in the game panel so it shows the currently selected zoom level (from 1 to 7)

8. Bay Laurel Bush: This bush yields Bay Leaves to be used in the Filipino Restaurant.

9. Photography Supplies Factory (FC): Produces Photography Supplies.

Studio Stool
Leaning Mirror
Photo Album
Photo Prop Hat
Reflector
Backdrop
Dust Blower
Professional Lens

10. Marina Supplies Factory (Coins): Produces Marina Supplies.

11. Filipino Restaurant (FC): Produces Filipino Food.

New products from other facilities: Shrimp Paste from the Smokehouse.

New primary product: Bay Leaves from the Bay Laurel Bush located in the Tree category in the store.

12. Marina (Coins): Provides Yachts and Boats Moorings and Supplies Services and can be stocked with products from the Marina Supplies Factory.

Enjoy!

Post-Release Updates - June 1st, 5:20PM

- Bugfix: When you click on the up and down arrows in the ToolBox the yellow combines are not showing up.

Note: In the case of the combines column, you may need to click on the arrows 2 times to get to the bottom or top of the tools.

Post-Release Updates - June 2nd, 2:40PM

- Bugfix: When buying items from the store and putting them in the farm, when you moved the mouse some place else in the farm, the horizontal progress bar reappeared on the top of the item just bought.
- Removed the 'Oil Pump' from the Owned and Not Owned filter in the store, it was not working properly and causing confusion.

Note: For those users asking why when using the extended mode tools we don't show the crops name under the mouse, the answer is performance. When using extended mode we do not show the highlight on each item and do not need to process them individually when you move the mouse, this is one of the main reasons the extended mode tools perform much better than the regular tools.

So we decided that the extended mode tools should prioritize performance over everything else, and for those cases, which are in the minority, that you really need to see the name of the crop to harvest just that crop, then you should use the regular tools or switch to highlight mode in your Ex tool.

Post-Release Updates - June 5th, 3:40PM

- Bugfix: Crop tools were able to work on crop fields even when the crops were hidden.

Post-Release Updates - June 5th, 11:30PM

- We had to revert back the bugfix in Point #7, Feature b) because it was causing some other negative side effects for the crop tools, final solution for this problem will be released soon.

Post-Release Updates - June 7th, 5:20PM

- Released another version of the bugfix for Point #7, Feature b).

Post-Release Updates - June 7th, 10:50PM

- Continue releasing more optimizations to speed up load time and decrease memory consumption.

Post-Release Updates - June 9th, 3:30PM

- Released the Filipino Restaurant.

Post-Release Updates - June 10th, 3:05AM

- Released 25 new levels, more info in the release post above.

Post-Release Updates - June 22nd, 1:00PM

- Released several optimizations and improvements to the game, we will detail each of them at a later time. If you notice any malfunction or a negative unexpected behavior in the game, please report it on this thread.

Post-Release Updates - June 28nd, 12:00PM

- We opened this thread because we had to release some internal changes in preparation for the release tomorrow, if you experience any bugs or unexpected behavior please post it on this thread.

- None

Thanks Raul.
I have seen one issue though it may just be me. Trying to switch out tools in short cuts a couple of the spots to place them would not stay highlighted (yellow box) in normal size screen. I had to go to full screen to get it to work.

Hi Amanda,
Try using the arrows at the top and bottom of the columns. That way you should be able to see all the tools.

Hi Amanda,
I noticed too in the combines, because there are 2 for each level of tools. The rest of the tools do show. We will let the developers know as soon as they get the release published.

Hi mastermouse,
Are you using Chrome? If so the zoom problem is a known problem caused by a Chrome update. There is nothing Farm Town can do about that.
From the May 3rd release:
Known Issues:

- The zoom in and out using the mouse wheel is not working on the latest update of the Chrome browser when in full screen mode. It should work when you are not in full screen mode or when you click on the + and - icons in the bottom panel. We hope they fix this issue quickly, as it's also happening on other games in facebook.

Hi LiseJasmine,
First 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.
https://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/p...lear_memcached (https://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/play/?do=clear_memcached)

Then if that doesn't work please try all the suggestions in the first post of the following thread link including the ones in the links in that post:
http://www.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=352666

Please post a reply in that thread if you still can't get to your farms.

Hi, I first ran the memcache and then tried the "not owned" filter for the tools in the store. It says I have no oil pumps but I do have several, on farms and in storage. Maybe this should be checked also.

Hi, I checked out the 'Not Owned' section and it says I do not own the Armoured Truck. I have owned that since the day it came out ! Just for your info.

Thanks for the update, look forward to seeing what else is in it. Have bought the facilities so far :D

The filter is obviously intended to hide the items you only need one of for use on all farms. You can own more than one Oil Pump so filtering it out would just make life more difficult if you wanted to add another Oil Pump to a farm that didn't have one.

I don't think this needs 'fixing' as it is not a real problem.

The Armoured truck has never 'registered' for me either .... it don't say duplicate like the other tools .. Been like that for years ...

Thanks for the update, and the EX 7 tools work flawlessly and very very fast. I appreciate the attention that is being given to economize the memory usage by this game. It will help a lot of people. However, it still concerns me why no effort has been given to the fact that these new EX crop tools do NOT show what crop is planted and all the other usual data that goes with it when hovering over the field with the new tools. If I switch to "highlight" mode then there it is, all the needed info, then switch back to extent mode it is not there. Why is this? We have been asking this question since EX 5 tools came out and there has been NO response why this has been left out.

Also, you may want to check the item description (in the original posting of this update) of the Photography facility. I am pretty sure those items are not made in that facility.

Jun 01 2017, 06:17 AM
When are they going to add the crop info when you hover over your crops, when using the 'new faster method'? I plant more than 1 crop on my farms. I can't identify all the crops unless I know which ones to harvest. The dev's shouldn't assume that I'm going to harvest all my crops when they're ready, sometimes I save some until I need them for an upcoming quest. It's hard for me to identify which crops on 1 farm that I want to plant over. I have to go out of the combine & look for the crop I was going to replace/harvest. They have that option for all the other harvesters, except for the 5x5 combine ('new faster method').

McDaddie> I have been asking for the same thing. I guess they assume we can all identify all of the crops, or that we plant only 1 crop on each farm. I need to know which crop I'm harvesting when I hover over the crops. I plant more than 1 crop on my quest farm. I have to constantly go back & forth, release the tool to look at which crop I'm harvesting & then sometimes I forget for that short moment & then have to go back & then I have to go back & look again at what I was doing. They are making productive changes to the game in general, why aren't they considering that another productive, efficient aspect that needs to be done?

FT Devs: We need to see the crop info when we hover over a crop while using the 'new faster method' of combines. Please

Owned/Not Owned Tools is a dream come true.

Now if the Enable Ships preference could be unchecked, allowing players to check it if they want to use them, it would be another dream realized. Trying to get neighbors to uncheck it when they do not do them is like pulling teeth from chickens.

Thanks for keeping Farm Town alive all these years with new stuff monthly.

I am delaying purchasing the new facilities and services as they are all showing as coin purchases. This happened to me when the mexican restaurant was showing as a coin purchase. I purchased it, then later noticed my farm cash total was lower. When I checked, the mexican restaurant had now changed to a farm cash purchase. I would never have purchased it with farm cash as it had no service facility for it. When I contacted help and support they insisted it had always been a farm cash facility. I ended up stuck with a restaurant I didn't want, and also out the farm cash.

Hi chichibeck

The Photography Supplies Factory is a Farm Cash facility and when the Filipino Restaurant is released, that will also be Farm Cash.

The Marina and Marina Supplies Factory are coins.

Hi emurph,
The purchase of the Combine Harvest plant did not go through. You were not charged for it. You do have to own the Seeder before you can buy that combine.

This may not be a problem, but just a glitch - When I harvest and replant my fields, then fertilize and irrigate, some of the fields turn back to the "look" that they aren't fertilized. I can move the mouse around and different patches of the field will lose the fertilized "look". I'm sure it's just a glitch, but thought it needed to be reported on.

Hi Tom C,
As we all have oil pumps and they are on the farms, not in storage then they will not show as owned. Is your blue flower harvester in storage or on a farm? If it is on a farm is this the farm you went to the store from?

Who are you telling this to? Any FC purchased item is listed when you purchased and also listed in a table in your account data, so we can always tell if one is missing.

How much should it cost total for the 7x7 Ex. Harvest-Plow-Sow tool? Which other tools do I have to buy first? I bought the harvest-plow tool. Then the store let me buy the harvest-plow-tool. However, I can't use it. I've spent 100 FC. Do I have to spend another 100 for the seeder and plow alone? I've not had so much problem before.

Hi emurph,
You had bought the Harvester and the Combine Harvest Plow for 50 FC each earlier. There isn't a plow for the EX tools. Now you have bought the Seeder for another 50 FC and only need to buy the Combine Harvest Plant for another 50 FC.

You can check on any FC purchase you have made yourself by going to the Account tab above your farm and click on the Farm Cash Activity Log.

Every set of the EX tools has only had 4 tools as the plow you have for the 16x16 tools is the only plow you need for those tool sets.

I like the idea of being able to see which tools are owned and not owned. Is it possible to do that as well for the facilities?

It would be nice, too, if the FC facilities were affordable too!!!

Hi BeeEmmAre,

You already have that option for facilites. Go to Facilites in the store then click on the Funnel icon top right and choose "Not Owned".

Geez, I wish I knew that before!!!! Thanks very much Tiger, that'll be a big help! Now just to be able to afford the facilities. I only need 3000 FC to buy what I'm missing!

I can't do them anymore - they are too time consuming. The last update was of no help to me and this new one, oh well. The port option is fine - I always enjoy sending my neighbors off asap - but can't you do something to help your devotees who still have to work in the real world? PLEASE!

Hi uma437,

I'm sorry but i am not understanding you. What work information are you talking about? Are you referring to cargo ships?

I noticed yesterday when I started prepping my ship that prep time for my blue cargo ship was at 36 minutes, today when I am finishing it it is back to 56 minutes. I do also have a yellow cargo ship to but it is still hasn't returned yet.
was it a gift or a glitch?

thanks

Hi Docperk,

Preparation time depends on how many ships you have dispatched in the last 7 days. For the fastest times you need to have dispatched 6 ships.

You have only dispatched 2 so far. 36 minutes, with 2 ships dispatched, for the blue ship is correct. If you click the lower ? in the box on the container you are preparing it will show you all the times possible for that ship. However you have a ship that will drop off for being 7days old at 13:26:54 EST so your container time will then be for 1 ship dispatched so should be 54 minutes per container

Hi all :)

Raul has updated the New Release thread with the following information:

Post-Release Updates - June 2nd, 2:40PM

- Bugfix: When buying items from the store and putting them in the farm, when you moved the mouse some place else in the farm, the horizontal progress bar reappeared on the top of the item just bought.
- Removed the 'Oil Pump' from the Owned and Not Owned filter in the store, it was not working properly and causing confusion.

Note:For those users asking why when using the extended mode tools we don't show the crops name under the mouse, the answer is performance. When using extended mode we do not show the highlight on each item and do not need to process them individually when you move the mouse, this is one of the main reasons the extended mode tools perform much better than the regular tools.

So we decided that the extended mode tools should prioritize performance over everything else, and for those cases, which are in the minority, that you really need to see the name of the crop to harvest just that crop, then you should use the regular tools or switch to highlight mode in your Ex tool.

I was working a farm, with crops hidden but when the plow popped up I accidentally clicked and it harvested a square of hidden crops. That kind of makes hidden crops a pointless thing. Some people have quest farms and don't want those crops harvested. I can get used to it but shouldn't have to as it didn't happen before this. I even tested it once and it didn't harvest hidden crops. Thanks!

Sorry but 18x tools are useless. They work no fewer clicks than my 16x tools The only way I can reduce clicks with a larger tool would be a 24x tool. Guess I won't be wasting my excessively costly FC.

When will us long-term maxed level players get the FC we need and have earned? 25 every three months is not enough!!! 25 EVERY month would not be enough. We should be able to buy a 30-35 FC tool or facility every month, IMHO. We've put in the time and effort and are not rewarded for it. I'm closing in on 500 million XP but what does that get me? Nothing that a relative "newbie" with 71 million XP doesn't also get, LOL! I have almost SEVEN TIMES that amount and get nothing to show for it.

This is why I didn't want to expand my farms past 32x32. I only took them to 34x34 to maximize the Farm Stats info. Now with the 18x18 tools I'll start working on expanding them to 36x36 since the way my farms are laid out this lets me plant the entire farm in 16 clicks

A 36x36 farm maxes out at 48x48 plots which my 16x16 can do in 3x3 or 9 total clicks. To reduce the number of clicks would require 24x24 tool, not an 18x or 20x or 22x tool. They STILL need 9 clicks so have zero benefit.

My biggest farms are 34x. I will not expand beyond 36x until we can get 24x, or better still, TOTAL FARM tools (like sprinkler or fishing=one click farm done) and the MAAAAAANY more FC we need to afford to buy them.

I woke up to a welcome site this morning while doing my SN chores. The devs have stated in the past that they were working on performance for the game, but on my computer I have not realized any of that yet. My high performance PC has always just "got er done". But today I noticed they have taken out that horrific distraction of telling me what I just planted on every click on the H/P/S. Geesh, I bought the seed, I don't need a reminder :) . By taking this constant graphic rewrite away, the performance increase is so noticeable is was scary and I never once saw any numbers in the little red box at the top. I applaud the devs for this enhancement and look forward to more in the future. I do hope the devs read this or maybe one of the moderators will forward it to them. Thanks for your work.

If I don't need to own any of the regular crop tools, then why can't I buy the 7x7 Combine Harvest-Plant tool??


5. Seeder Ex and Combine Harvest-Plant Ex 7 x 7 with extended mode support (FC): These crop tools will work all fields in a squared area the size of 7x7 fields using the new faster method of farming, only highlighting a fixed squared section of the farm.

The main benefit of these tools is for working up to 784 partially overlapped fields at once. Overlapping fields is still not officially supported but if you do it on your farms or work on other players farms that do overlap fields, these new set of tools will enable a much faster farming.

Note: To buy these tools you *do not* need to own any of the regular crop tools 18x18. However, say you are using a Combine Harvest-Plant Ex of any size, if you switch to the highlight mode and you also own the regular Combine Harvest-Plant 18 x 18, then that's the Combine that will be selected instead of the regular Combine Harvest-Plant 16 x 16.

Hi cbl456,

For the 7x7Ex tools you do not need to own the 18x18s regular tools. However you can not buy the 7x7Ex tools before you own the 6x6Ex tools, and you need the 5x5Ex tools before you can buy the 6x6Ex tools, which you do not own. You can see the requirements for all the EX tools in the Game Guide >>

Wanted to say a quick Thank You to the developers for this release. New facilities are always fun, but I soooo much appreciate the optimizations. The #7b fix on the big tools also corrected the same issue I had when using my little green 5x5 harvest/plow/plant combine. It is so nice to have it back to normal :) New levels and farm cash are always appreciated too :) [I have the bigger tools also (highlight, no extended mode yet) but I use the 5x5 h/p/p and extended wither irrigation to plant small amounts of each crop to have available for quests.]

Hi Cherry,
The only thing I can suggest is to first close the seaport manager and reopen it to see if it will work then. If that doesn't work try restarting your farms. And if that doesn't work try clearing the memcache and restart farms. I find 1 of these will usually fix a stuborn ship.

Hi all :)

From Raul notes for the New Release:

Known Issues:

- It looks like a few days ago facebook released a change that broke the send gift functionality in the Chrome browser for several operating systems, either the friend list do not appear at all, or when the friend list do appear, after you send the gifts and hit the Done button, a white box appear on the screen and the gifts are not sent.

According to our tests these operating systems have been affected:

- Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit)
- Windows 8.1 (64 bit)
- Windows 10 (64 bit)
- Mac OS

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit seems to be working correctly.

Other browsers seems to be working correctly as well.

If this is not the case for you, please report it on this thread.

Hi Stu,
The ships select the itinerary from your Activity log under your farms, then fills in the rest from your My Neighbors tab. They don't learn what Itinerary you have from previous ships. This is why you can replace up to 10 ports and can move them all around into the order you want them.

Hi Stu,
I haven't seen that. I start a container, close the seaport, then click play, open the seaport and go make my changes to the itinerary. It always stays the way I have changed it. I have seen where it won't let me replace any if I try to go from prepping a container directly to the ship log, but as long as I close the seaport then come back in those work for me. It may be an update delay for the server.

Chrome Version 59.0.3071.104 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 7 Home Premium

Known Issues:

- It looks like a few days ago facebook released a change that broke the send gift functionality in the Chrome browser for several operating systems, either the friend list do not appear at all, or when the friend list do appear, after you send the gifts and hit the Done button, a white box appear on the screen and the gifts are not sent.

According to our tests these operating systems have been affected:

- Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit)
- Windows 8.1 (64 bit)
- Windows 10 (64 bit)
- Mac OS

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit seems to be working correctly.

Other browsers seems to be working correctly as well.

If this is not the case for you, please report it on this thread.

Hi tbearsszz,

Which browser are you using? If you are using Edge or IE then gift sending and train boosting do not work for most users in those browsers. You will have to use another browser for those.

If you are unable to accept them either, please describe exactly what happens when you try.

I have noticed the error 25 messages coming up while using the Harvest/plow/plant tool 7x. I have not seen this error while using other tools on my farms or while working other farms.

Regardless of the 'optimizations and improvements to the game' it continues to run horribly slow. It's like the more they try to fix a bad situation it just gums it up for me. This started with the ridiculous starting a farm with just the bottom triangle showing to 'help the farm load faster.' That is so awful.

It's time, I feel, to get this game running like the class act I think they want it to be. I'll even suggest they hire someone who knows about these games. Sure, it costs money to hire professionals, but bad fix on top of bad fix is NOT helping.

I am directly plugged into the cable. No wireless here. My game should be running like a jet airplane. Instead, it's running like a prop plane and this should NOT be satisfactory to the Developers.

has anyone else noticed that since all the upgrades that when you plant or harvest the screen jumps (or flashes) all over the place?

Yes, my fields are doing the same - as I H/P/S, they "lift up" as if stuck to the combine. It has really slowed me down when working my crops! :eek:

Hi mastermouse and Norlene,
I have tried with the largest tools you have and with larger and I have not been able to duplicate this.
The only time I have seen something like this is if I hold the mouse button down a split second too long and it drags the farm which will cause it to flash and shifts slightly.

Jun 26 2017, 08:54 PM
Well, it flashes for me as well. I call it blinking. been happening for a long time here.

am I correct in thinking if I have like 1,200,200 wheat, then over a million I lose that amount of the crop?

Thanks!

Hi Barbs,
No. The limit for an individual item in your storage is 100 million, though I dare say you will probably not get that high as you would reach the total limit if you had high amounts of other things.

Confused 1 million with 100 million. I did remember the million being in there.

Seems like the harvesting/planting is slower than usual. Kind of a delay between clicking on a highlighted plowed field and the appearance of the planted crop. I cleared the memcache and Chrome browser, but that had no effect.

Internet speed:
Download = 85.21 Mbps Upload = 23.43 Mbps Lat = 11ms

I've had screen flashes for more than a couple of years - Just figured it was me getting in a hurry with the mouse or perhaps over-running the capability of the browser.

Usually stops blinking/flashing if I slow the pace a little.

This isn't really a new issue but in case it helps . . . I just tried to hire someone and I didn't get notified that they had accepted (even though they left the Marketplace) so I hired a second person. Ended up with both people hired when I had intended to hire solo.

This has been an intermittent issue for me for a long time, though, so it may not be related to what you're looking for.

Eager to see the new release! Tomorrow sounds great!

Dear Raul:

Several FT players just noticed that the Cargo Port Supplies Factory and the Marina Supplies Factory have no grading which means we won't get bonuses from them. Is this an oversight?
Thank you.

No, its not an over sight.

When new factories are released, they do not have the belt s and dans enabled. FT only switch them on when they have released approx 10 new factories.

I have this occur as well, but the screen jumping around is caused by my adblocker.

Mine are all there in the toolbox.

Do you mean missing from the toolbox or on the farm?

IF its them not showing on the farm, check that you have show tools ticked in the drop down option list

I had a look at your data and all your farmcash tools are in your storage.

Open your storage and click in Items, then set it to Tools and check them

Hi Retiree,
That usually means someone is on your farm. That may not be the case here, but there isn't anything we can do to fix it for you. It will usually fix itself after a little while.

Retiree,
I have the same problem on a few of my farms (they sometimes rotate after a new release...go figure). Have for over a year. It becomes a pain because I can't see if the person I hired is working or not because the game acts like I'm offline when on those farms. Can be quite irritating to say the least but I have yet to find a fix for it.

I've had that problem for several months and it hasn't fixed itself.
I wish they could fix some of these little glitches instead of making the game bigger and bigger.
Thanks anyway .. :)

Hi grannyjan,
You can see what you need on the super neighbor farms if you own the correct tool. I believe it to be the "Lookout Tower". I have it and can see every farm that has work, whether it be harvest, plow, seed, tree chop, tree shake, flowers, or fishing. I can't live without it as I do too many farms for others to keep track of.

It is the lookout tower, and I too love it. I use it a second time after working the farms and before irrigating just in case I missed something (doesn't happen often, but it does happen). I have bought one for each of my super neighbors to make it easier for them to work my farms.

Tomorrow in Farm town means anytime in the next week. :p I will say they have gotten better with their timing it may not always be exactly when they say but it is close to when they say tomorrow used to mean anytime in the next 2 months. LOL
