Default New Release -- July 8th, 2011

Bug Fixes and Post-Launch updates:

- When you buy tools that enable the 'Start All' for each product in a facility, they will also enable a 'Start All' button at the top on each facility to start all productions in one click. It will start products one by one in order of appearance, when it gets to the last product it starts the first product again, continuing until there is no more ingredients available or the capacity is reached. This button will be added to the Facility Manager soon.

- You can now use the Water Sprinkler again in your friends farms

- Farm selection when hiring people is maintained during current game session

Notice: Starting July 1st Facebook requires all users to purchase FarmCash with Facebook Credits. The process is very simple and secure.


Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes:

1. Hire to work in multiple farms: The farm selector window when hiring others now have 2 tabs to either quickly 'Select One Farm' or to 'Select Multiple Farms'. If you select multiple farms, when the employee navigate to your farms the green farm selector on top will be shown highlighting only the farms where the employee can work.

Notice that the game only make sure that there is work available on the first farm selected, so make sure you select your farms accurately so the employee don't waste time navigating to farms where there is nothing to do.

2. Drive Thru System (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 8 Fast Food Restaurants:

Hamburger, Fish and Chips, Sandwich, Taco, Breakfast, Coffee Shop, Pizza and Bakery

3. 11 New crops and trees: Only the Ebony tree will have use for now. Next release will change this.

Crops: Lentils (4h), Zucchini (2d), Radish (1d), Chives (12h), Clover (8h), Acorn Squash (5d)
Trees: Ebony (12h), Grapefruit (3d), Durian (2d), Red Maple (2d, Gift), Juniper (2d, Gift)

4. Tables and Chairs (FC): This tool allows you to Start All productions for a product with one click on any of the 7 regular Restaurants:

Dinner, Chinese, Pasta, Seafood, Sushi, Soup and Ice cream Shop

Once you own these tools, new future restaurants will automatically benefits from them.

5. Tree Shaker 3 x 3 (Coins): Harvest up to 9 trees at once. This tool can not be used when working for others.

6. Bulldozer 5 x 5 (FC): Allows you to delete 25 fields at once.

7. Instant Food Factory (coins): Produce Instant Food.

Powdered Milk
Pomegranate Juice Powder

Instant Shrimp Noodles

8. Musical Instruments Factory (FC): Produce Musical Instruments.

Harmonica
Clarinet
Tambourine

You need to harvest Horse Hair in the Stables to make the Violin and Bow set.

11. Stable Facility: Stables are now in the Facility section. It will be an animal facility where you can harvest the hair of the horses used in the Musical Instruments Factory to make the violin and bow set.

12. Other Improvements and Bug fixes:

- Issues in the market/inn/realtor office not been able to see people or getting chat messages without names should be far less frequent now
- Selling products in the market when having lot of items in storage should not become slower with time, should be much more stable
- When you work for others now the tool bar correctly show the most advanced tool you have for the Job
- Once you sell any log pile or use it in facilities, the Axe tutorial will never show up again
- Once you sell any fish or use it in facilities, the Fishing tutorial will never show up again
- When you work in your neighbours facilities and going from one facility to the next there is no extra confirmation message
- The open or close status of your extended tool box is now saved permanently so you don't have to open it all the time
- When hired for multiple jobs and clicking the toolbox icon, the extended version of the tool box will always be displayed
- When you click in a tool on the extended toolbox the toolbox hides immediately
- If you are hired and have issues working in the farm or with the network connection, you can now click on the highlighted (current) farm icon in the farm selector to reload the current farm. You will remain hired after the reload.
- You should experience far less X025 errors when moving animals from animal buildings into your farm

In the next release we will add new products for existing facilities and use some of the new crops/trees.

Enjoy!

Thanks

--Raul

Thanks for the updates I love everything. I would like to ask that shrimp be increased you need way more shrimp then the other things in the fish farming plant so it doesn't make sense to buy another one just for more shrimp. I can't wait to see what new crops we get. Is there any chance of getting a coin facility for the horses right now both are for farm cash?

The musical instruments factory sounds intriguing, but if you need horse hair, there should be a stable that can be bought for coins.

Looking forward to the new crops, trees and optimizations. I've already enjoyed the faster working in others' facilities. Thanks!
