Default What is the Tool box?



What is the Tool box?

The Tool box is where you can find all your tools, (for the larger tools you will see them if you have bought them and placed them into item storage. Note: Farm Cash items do NOT use up your Item storage space, you can store as many Farm Cash items as you want). You will also find your facility manager, quest managers, ship manager, minigames and many more items that can help you with the game. When you first start playing the game you will not have many items in the tool box. As you start playing and levelling up you will gradually get access to more items and then again when you start buying the bigger tools and place them into item storage.

When there is a number on the Tool box, that means that there are ether:
  • Trains for you to boost from your friends in your Train Manager,
  • Ships to load from your friends in your Seaport Manager
  • or a combination of both.

    The counter updates approximately every 10 minutes as you work your farms.


To open your Tool box, click on the tool box icon.
You will then see something similar to this, but it will show you your tools. Anything that is greyed out is something you do not have access to yet due to game level or it is a tool you do not own or it is a tool you have not placed it into item storage.

It is always a good idea to place any tools you own into item storage, that way you can access your tools from the toolbox from any farm without having to move the tools to each farm. It also helps when you need to upgrade a tool as the game will be able to see what you already own. To use a tool just click on it to pick it up. Click the green man to stop using it.

To close the tool box click on the big white x just beneath the bottom right of the window.


These arrows will show at either the top or bottom of each column when there are more items in the column than can be displayed all at once, just click on them to scroll the column up or down. OR if you have a mouse with a wheel, you can hover over each column and use the mouse wheel to scroll.

Farm Stats. Depending on how many farms you have expanded to a certain size, this lets you see the stats of your crops, trees, flowers, fish, animal products, harvested/plowed fields on either the Current Farm, a specific farm or All Farms.

There are various filters to show a specific category or all products by ready, growing or wasted and when they will be in that state ranging from Now to 24hrs or more.
The A-Z filter allows you to sort the list Alphabetically, by Quantity or Category.

When you mouse over any product showing you will also see how many you have stored.
  • For stats on Fish, at least 5 farms at 26x26 or bigger
  • For stats on Animals, at least 6 farms at 26x26 or bigger
  • For stats on Flowers, at least 7 farms at 28x28 or bigger (ignores frozen flowers)
  • For stats on Trees, at least 8 farms at 30x30 or bigger
  • For stats on Crops, at least 9 farms at 32x32 or bigger
  • For stats on Fields, at least 9 farms at 32x32 or bigger (stats on harvested and plowed fields only)
  • For stats on All Products, at least 10 farms at 34x34 or bigger

Show Times.
  • The Gamewide section gives you access to information on when you can next buy products from another farmer, open a new quest, post bonues or ingredients, refuel, send gifts, rework facilites and reaccelerate trains.
  • The Per-Farm section shows you when you can fertilise, water flowers, or irrigate.
  • The Trains section, shows you which farms your trains are on and when they are due back.
  • The Minigames section shows you when prizes are next available in various minigames you can play.
The Show Times tool can also be accessed when you are on another farmers farm.

Minigames gives you access to each of those games.

Trophies are what you can earn by playing the game, buying, adding neighbours. This is also a good quick way to know how many neighbours you have.

Belts and Dans. This where you can see your progress on belts and dans for harvesting and making products in your facilites. There are separate sections, for seeds, trees, flowers, fish, products. The A-Z filter lets you sort by belts/dans or product name. The Funnel filter lets you sort by specific belt or dan.

This is also where you can find your recent belts to post. Look in the "Recent Belts" section. From there you can chose which ones of the belts/dans you have recently earned to post. You can post 5 in 12 hours.

More information for Belts and Dans in Chapter 30: Belt/Dan Bonuses


The Camera lets you take a photo of your farm which posts to Facebook. Click on the camera, chose whether to show the whole farm or a window onto a portion of the farm, add a caption if you wish, choose small medium or large for the size of the photo, then choose green or white background. Last thing to do is click the Next button. You photo will be published to Facebook.
