See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on August 2nd, 11:20PM.

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=630698)

1. 11 New Decorations:

a) A new 'Wooden Unfinished House' with 2 more Wooden Windows and a Window Flower Pot
b) Chain Fence, White Chain Fence, Trolley Car, High Tension Tower, Power Wire, Tiny Sea Foam and Small Sea Foam

2. Next 5 expansions for Farm 33: See prices below:

24x24 - 20000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
26x26 - 20500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
28x28 - 21000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
30x30 - 21500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
32x32 - 22000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. Improvements and Optimizations released in the past few days:

a) Farms with lots of water items load and operate much faster, even when overlapped

b) Farms full of plow fields or harvested fields load faster, even when overlapped

c) Decreased farm blinking when farming very quickly. When clicking and moving the mouse quickly while farming, sometimes the game detected those actions as dragging. We made some adjustments to minimize those accidental dragging operations. This also caused a noticeably increase in speed when farming.

d) Improved farm dragging operation on big farms with lot of items, sometimes when you were dragging quickly, the farm didn't move as much as it was supposed to and you were forced to do multiple drag attempts.

e) Bugfix: This was an old bug, sometimes when you reloaded or navigated to a farm, the new farm appeared shifted to the top, and then finally moved down, causing a weird visual effect.

f) BugFix: Sometimes the single harvest tool was not working correctly when a tree or flower was planted on top of a crop field.

4. Log Truck with Chainsaw 32 x 32 (FC): This new Log Truck with Chainsaw chop up to 1024 trees in one click.

5. Fishing Turbo Boat 32 x 32 (FC): This new Turbo Boat catch all fish in all water items in a squared area the size of 8x8 plow fields. This tool is especially useful for fishing up to 1024 overlapped water items at once.

6. Continued working in the Local Facility Chains: This is a functionality that will be released in the next few months, we should have the first part ready for the next release, here are some of the rules so far although some of these may change:

a) A user will be able to create chains with its own facilities by combining multiple facilities of the same type. This feature is not related to the Neighborhood Chains Context.
b) Every certain amount of weeks a user can select 2 facility candidates to convert into chains
c) Only one can be a coin facility
d) One must be a factory and the other one must be a service facility
e) Assuming facility X and Y are paired (output of X is the input of Y, for example the Medical Supplies Factory and the Hospital Service Facility) you cannot have chains of both of them, you will have to decide which one, the factory or the service you want to upgrade into a chain
f) For a facility candidate to earn the chain status, you will have to reach the Dan 7 on each of its products. Dan 7 could only be reached for products produced in facilities that are candidates to be converted into chains.
g) A chain should have at least 2 facilities and a maximum of 3 facilities. A chain with 3 facilities will provide more benefits than a chain of 2 facilities.
h) Chains of factories will provide increased product output. Chains of service facilities will provide increased profits.
i) A factory chain will produce 2 different types of product quality: standard quality, and a new premium or export quality products to be stored in a separate dedicated storage, for example, Surgical Gloves and Premium Surgical Gloves, the product types and images are all the same, there will just be 2 different quality versions of each product produced in a chain.
j) Premium products cannot be consumed by your own service facilities, you can sell them in the market for increased profits or you can trade them with your friends through partnerships
k) For example, if you own a chain of Medical Supplies Factories, you can enter into a partnership with one of your neighbours that have a chain of Hospitals and all your premium products produced by your Medical Supplies Factory chain will be automatically consumed by your partner in his/her chains of Hospitals, generating even more profits for both of you.

7. Deli (FC): Produces Delicatessen Style Food.

Reuben Sandwich
Pastrami on Rye
Roast Beef Sandwich
Avocado BLT Sandwich
Club Sandwich
Salami Omelette
Egg Salad
Tuna Salad

New products in other Facilities: Russian Dressing in the Sauce and Condiments Factory.

8. Food Ingredients Factory (Coins): Produces Food Preparation Ingredients. For now there is only one product produced in this facility but this may expand in the future.

Pectin

9. Mobile Accessories Factory (FC): Produces Mobile Accessories.

Phone Stand
Phone Armband
Clip-On Phone Lens
Girl Phone Cover
Selfie Stick
Power Bank
Smartwatch Lux Strap
Kid Tablet Cover

10. Jam and Jelly Factory (Coins): Produces Jams and Jellies.

Grape Jelly
Cherry Jelly
Raspberries and Rhubarb Jelly
Plum Jam
Apricot Jam
Peach Jam
Fig Jam
Spiced Pear Jam

New products in other Facilities: Pectin in the Food Ingredients Factory.

11. 'Taste of the World' Service Facilities: This is a new theme of Service Facilities that will offer an opportunity to use the products produced in the different regional and country restaurants we have in the game. This time around we are releasing the 2 Service Facilities mentioned below.

12. Taste of Latin America (FC): Provides Latin American Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Latin American Restaurant.

13. Taste of Mediterranea (Coins): Provides Mediterranean Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Mediterranean Restaurant.


Note to our Fans: As some of you already know, Adobe recently announced that support for their Flash platform will be discontinued at the end of the year 2020. Rest assured that this will not affect Farmtown. We already started working on migrating the FarmTown game away from Flash and onto a newer and more resilient platform.

What does this mean for you? You won’t notice any significant difference when we upgrade the Farmtown game. In fact, we expect that the game will run faster, and it will let us add more features to the game that we haven’t been able to add due to the performance limitations of the existing Flash technology.

You will be able to continue playing Farmtown in your browser, in addition we’ll also add support for Facebook Gameroom for a better game experience.

In the name of the Farmtown team, we thank you for your continuous support and loyalty.

Enjoy!

--Raul

Post-Release Updates - August 2nd, 11:20PM

Hi sdsickinger,
It should be telling you don't have any pectin as that is made in the new food ingredients factory.

We are seeing that it isn't recognizing the purple grapes too.

Hi sdsickinger,
I am not sure I woulod sell my Non-ingredients just yet. There will be 2 more service facilities released next week that will use some of those currently non-ingredients.

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)

I just checked and I have a number amount in my non-ingredients (for me).

Pleasant surprise this evening! Thank you for the very interesting release!!

BTW: The chopped off tops issue still exists, even with multiple memcache and browser cache clears. When harvesting neighbors farms, it is only the first farm having the display issue and if I immediately go to their next farm, then return to the first farm, all is normal.

Thank you for the new tools, etc but I still wish that ya'll had a version, even streamlined, that worked with our cell phones so when we are on vacation, etc, we are still able to perform certain functions on our accounts or our farms. I cannot go to my farm buy cash, facs, etc unless I borrow a family members computer.

Perhaps this post needs to be in a different section, however it is too difficult for me to maneuver this gadget. lol
Will you please move it if you so seem it in the improper section Taz? Ty 😏

Thanks for the updates! We appreciate your dedication and hard work. Is there any way we can get sort buttons in the planting screen? I'd love to be able to sort by length of time to grow, then by stored amount so I can plant certain things. Even a non-ingredients sort would be nice so I don't plant things I don't need. :) Just a thought.

What kind of phones do you have? I use the Puffin browser on my Android phone and it works just like logging in on the computer. I can do everything on my phone that I can on the computer.

Thanks

That happened to me once a long time ago when I hadn't sold my non-ingredients in forever. As I recall, after discussing it with some folks here, I decided to go ahead and sell anyway and I got a HUGE amount of cash! I think at that time, the amount I had stored up was just bigger than that particular bit of code was set to display, but it DID give me the correct amount. HOWEVER . . . I'm not saying that will happen for you - just telling you my experience with the same issue a couple of years back.

Also, sooooooooooooo glad to hear the Flash thing won't affect us. I did see that notice earlier this week and was worried.

YAY! FT forever!

Hi wrsearlessr :)

They are located in the 'Other' category in the Store, beginning in page 11. Each page in the store contains 8 items. This means when you click in Other tab and you want to scroll down, you click in the bar on the right side and it moves down to show you 8 items. Every time you click, then 8 items are showed up, and they are considered as 1 page.

Just for the heck of it, I hit the Start All button on my Jams and Jellies facility, and it started up every product. Since I have no pectin, how can it do this?

Hi MaryinVA,

Taz is not available at the moment.

When i tried this it did not load the ones needing pectin as i had none at the time. Could you have sent anyone ingredients to make the products in that factory? If you did that's how you got the pectin as you get some as well.

Thanks for the update. I will check it out tonight when I get home from work, but I have still been noticing slow down in the initial loading of the farm, even though the updates keep saying they have made improvements.

Hi Docperk,

It's not the initial loading that has sped up, there is a delay now before everything loads, but once it's loaded you should find working farms much faster.

Doubling the farm cash from levels 875 to 900 when they come out would be a good idea! :D

Anyway, that is not really what I wanted to post about, but to say thanks for letting us know that Slashkey is upgrading its product to another platform. The fewer emails I send to customer service to suggest it, the better! :) :p

Docperk, it also helps load faster in some cases if you do not clear your temporary internet files and browser cache too often. Once a week is often enough for me, but I know some who clear everything when the browser is closed. The game and Facebook both use "cookies" for files that need to load consistently from one time to the next when using the pages. (Thankfully they are not the fattening type of cookies! :D )

Hi MaryinVA,

Taz is not available at the moment.

When i tried this it did not load the ones needing pectin as i had none at the time. Could you have sent anyone ingredients to make the products in that factory? If you did that's how you got the pectin as you get some as well.
The counter actually did say I had 0 pectin to start. And the facilities loaded 100%, so even if I only had a little, it wouldn't have filled up. (But I didn't send or ask for ingredients anyway.)

Also, when I click "start one" now, it says it can't produce because I don't have any pectin, but on the two products that don't need pectin, the message was that I was at maximum capacity.

Now that a few hours have gone by, I checked again, and it is actually manufacturing the products. I hit the "store" button, and then checked my storage, and sure enough I have a batch of cherry jelly (the only one I specifically checked on).

Maybe it will all go away after I've reloaded a few times, but at least I'm working on producing pectin.

Hi lvlrsSweetPea,
You already have the sort buttons for the seeds. Click on the AZ filter and you can sort by level required, harvest time, amount stored and a couple others.

I have tried all that you suggested and I still have the NaN in the $ amount.

Also just FYI I wrote some months ago about my farm # 17 appearing like someone is on the farm when they are not. It's still that way even after all I have done and after many months. It's frustrating because that's the farm I want as my default as that is where my trains are, and is a reminder to check them daily.
Thanks again

Hi sdsickinger,
As Farmer Susan answered you, this most likely means you have such a high amount that the location for that number can't display it because the amount is too large. I have looked at your storage and agree with her because you have very high numbers for everything in your storage.
So just go ahead and sell your non-ingredients and you will get the right amount of coins.
There isn't anything we can do about your farm 17 opening with the chat window open. The only thing you can do is close that when you get to that farm.

Hi MadamePonderosa,
When you turn those back on all you need to do refresh the farm and the red squares go away.

Hi MadamePonderosa,

Your surely misunderstood Taz. I'm aware of that, but this is different. Happened after this release. Before, plowed fields were dominant over the red squares and you could see where to sow. No, the red square pattern totally covers plowed fields and also covering trees. Could not see where I pointed to sow. I know its just to reload, the point is that it was not like this before last update.
Also earlier, I discovered half of the buildings/trees/items on top side of farm was permanent cut. Didnt show when hoover over like it used to. Just cutted until reloaded. Since you are fixing bugs I though you might wanna know

A little display problem on my farm 33. Everything was fine yesterday, but when I got on this morning, I have crops in the same field (ex: green beans) where some squares are "above" the rest of the field. Also had some bare spots on the biggest field. And, can't see part of my fence although I know it's there because I thought it was my mistake and tried to replace it, but couldn't - there's something there I can't see.

I cleared memcache, cleared browser history, rebooted, tried two different browsers (IE and Chrome)... No difference

Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks to the devs for always coming up with something new.

Hi NJones,
I have looked at your farm 33 and do not see any problems in the crops. No bare spots in the rice or green bean fields where some are above the rest in the green beans.
I only see one fence missing at the lower corner where the rice and green beans come together with the flowers in between. I am not sure if you had one there to continue the run all the way across.

Thanks Taz. I've completely shut down and brought everything back up. I still see the same problem. Sorry you don't see it. As for the fence, yes there is only one that's not showing. Maybe I'll redo the fields that are acting up. Thanks again.

Hi NJones,
Yes redoing the fields may help with the missing areas. Be sure you delete all of them and then restart your farms look again to see if any come back and repeat that until you only see the grass in those areas.

Just a thought - now we have a Jam & Jelly fac and a Food Preserve Fac couldnt the Strawberry Jam, Blackberry Jam and Orange Marmalade be moved to the Jam and Jelly Fac? Or they be combined? And I guess you have plans for the one that produces Pectin. Otherwise I love this release and I really really appreciate your hard work.

Hi all :)

From Raul's notes for the New Release:

Known Issues:

- If you have trees on top of plow fields and you hide the trees, the red squares are completely hiding the plowed fields below the trees.

Thanks for the surprise release!!!

Harvesting with my friend again and the top of his farm is cut off. :(

Only seems to happen on the first farm we get to. Then when we move to the next they are all ok.

Yep, chopped off tops still occurring: just now harvested a neighbor and experienced this issue. When arriving at the first farm all looks OK. The pop up box with 'tornado made a big mess~' comes up and after clicking 'Yes~', all is still OK, then clicking the next button 'buy and use ~' the top of the farm goes into the chopped off display. I immediately went to the neighbors next farm and then returned to the first farm and the display is normal. Everything remained normal during harvest on multiple farms. Seems like it is just the first farm that is having the problem.

Hi Aussie Rae,
It is when you go to visit a neighbor's farm there are several different things you can get, such as crops are dry where you need to Buy a water hose and Use it.

I have tried all that you suggested and I still have the NaN in the $ amount.

Also just FYI I wrote some months ago about my farm # 17 appearing like someone is on the farm when they are not. It's still that way even after all I have done and after many months. It's frustrating because that's the farm I want as my default as that is where my trains are, and is a reminder to check them daily.
Thanks again

Hello sdsickinger, Good luck with your farm #17 problem. If you have the same problem I do, closing the chat box is not a fix for the real problem. You probably can't invite someone to visit you there either, because when they get there, you can't see them nor them see you. Hard to hire them or sell products when you have no one to click on. Mine has been doing this for YEARS and have never heard of a fix. If you took the time to check closely, this may be happening on more than one of your farms.

Working with my friend again and I just got hired for his farm and the top is cut off again. It seems to correct it's self when we go to the next farm. Just glad there is nothing to do on the first farm where it is cut off.

Hi Jean :)

The developers are aware of the problem and working to fix it.

Just a couple of questions, is that friend also your neighbor? if so, did you go to their farm to be hired and before that did you receive the message to help them with the water hose, rake etc..?

He is a neighbor. We start at my farm. He comes to my farm.....I hire him there......we go from farm to farm and chat........when he is finished with the last farm he hires me for his farms. When I get to his first farm I get the message to help rake, etc before I can start. He said my farms have been fine. It is just the first farm he hired me for that does it. And I noticed last night it was both top edges of the farm.

We meet up again on Wednesday this week. We will try starting at his farms first and let you know what happens that way.

He comes to my farm by sending the message asking if he can join me.

Hi Jean's Farm,

Its when you click to help water etc that tiggers the error. In the meantime, after doing the help, until this is fixed, you should be able to refresh the farm you are on by clicking the yellow box in the farm grid top left of your game screen, and then the display should correct.

Haha, Petunia, I was thinking the same thing when I read the year, maybe i will not even be here by that time, hope he does hurry and makes the game better for us before that happens.. :)

We did his first tonight and it cut off both mine and his when we got the help request. We never noticed it before cause when he comes to my farm he doesn't harvest the first farm he lands on. We'll just keep refreshing when it happens. Just wanted to let you know so you can pass it on to Raul. :)

They fit in well with the people who often look silly next to buildings and facs.

I don't know if this has been addressed yet but here goes: when I go to full screen to do my farms, everything is fine until I want to water by using the watering can - I can't switch back to any other tool unless I reload the farm. Also, I have to use the "escape" button in order to get out of full screen. The watering issue has happened before but was corrected before I had a chance to report it. Thank you!!

Hi KnittyGirl :)

I just tried what you are describing in 2 of my farms and had no problems. I was able to water my flowers using the water can in full screen and then I was able to switch tools.

Please try clearing your memcache (link below), a new window will open with a short list of unsettings, close that window and your farm if it was open during the clearing. Then reopen your farm and check the water can again.

If the problem continues, please post a response here and also let us know which browser you are using. Thank you :)

Hi BarbLH,
No the developers have not shared that information. Please keep in mind that Flash will not be going away until 2020 so they have 3 years to do this.

Ok, this is most definitely a new one for me. Loaded my farm 33 this morning and got a pop-up message stating that I had too many facilities on this farm and that I needed to move some or productions would be decreased? I didn't move anything but have gone to that farm several times today and haven't gotten the message again. Anyone else had this happen?

Hi Greatgig,
Even though it says facilities what the message is telling you is that you have too many items on that farm. With trees layered over staggered/layered crops and facilities you are in danger of the database for that farm being maxed out. When that happens you may lose some items off of that farm.

Taz, how come this is just now happening when I haven't added anything to this farm? And yesterday I did remove many trees and several rows of plots and am still having the same problem. Went to empty my trains that were supposed to be ready only to find that they had been emptied and were sitting idle. Today I moved several facilities to another farm and find that at least one of my trains are empty and idle again even though it was refilled AND according to my "show times" button my turbo train is now back and ready to empty but when I go to do so it says it still has 2 days out.

Hi Greatgig,
As far as I know this is a new message that has been added to try to prevent overloading that would cause things to disappear or not function correctly such as your trains.
Please post all the train problem specifics in the Help & Support subject thread about Trains so we can check each for you.

EditI have looked at your trains on that farm and the Turbo is idle and needs to be dispatched and the ultimate one is ready to be unloaded.

Yes, that is true, but the Turbo was loaded yesterday and sent out and today I get back and it's empty and idle again.

I have run the train data clearing. You will need to close your farms if they are open and reopen them and check them. The Turbo I am sure you will have to dispatch again.
