Default New Release -- March 10th, 2012

Hi There,

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

1. St Patrick items: Released a few days ago. All last year items plus 5 new items in the Store.

2. 28x28 Farm Expansions for Farms 6 - 10: Here are the prices -> 5,000,000,000 Coins or 25 FarmCash.

3. New Paths, Irrigation Canals and Patches (Available now):

Water Irrigation Canals: Dirt Water Canal, Cement Water Canal
Patches: Patch of Brown Land, Patch of White Dirt

4. Content Changes:
- Fried Rice and Grilled Mushrooms can now be stocked into the China Buffet
- Corn dogs and Corn on the cob can now be stocked into the Fair Food Stand

5. Green Mobile Sprinkler (FC) (Available now): If you already own the Orange Sprinkler you can buy this Green Sprinkler to extend the 'Gone to Waste' time of your crops. This tool will replace your Orange Sprinkler. Here are the rules:

- For Crops with Maturity equal or less than 1 -> Add 24h to the current Gone to Waste time
- For Crops with Maturity higher than 1 -> Add 48h to the current Gone to Waste time

6. Filtering all FarmTown Wall Requests: There is a link now at the top in the 'My Requests' tab named 'Show FarmTown Wall Requests' which will allow you too see only FarmTown posts and act on them.

7. Change Status Message: This new option in the avatar menu will allow you to set a temporary (in session) status message below your avatar (where your name is now). Notice you can only do this in the Marketplace.

Also you can express explicitly your intention with different colors so farmers can have a quick idea of what other farmers are up to in the Market. The intensions are:

- Hire, Work, Buy Products, Sell Products, Play Minigames ad Meet New Farmers.

8. Bug Fixes:
- New efficient scrolling added to the Store, this also fix the issue of latest Flash Player showing product tool tips info incorrectly
- The 'Add Neighbour' functionality was broken, this was fixed a few days ago
- The 'Send Gift' and 'FarmCash Offers Challenge' functionality were broken for some users, they were fixed a few days ago

Thanks again Devs for a nice update - you know how to keep us happy!!!

Though I'm not unhappy with my FT, but I watered both farms I have flowers on with the "speed" up water sprinkler (orange one). It shows F,W under my flowers but for some reason nothing is growing quicker - it's growing at the old rate prior to watering with the orange sprinkler. Last update I remember reading where someone else complained of this happening. Could you please check it out to see if we're having a problem?

Thanks! FT Devs are the greatest!

How long does it say it will be untill there ready to harvest?

if you just harvested and then irrigated it should say 1.6 days

if they were previously irrigated the growth time isnt halved a second time in the same growth cycle

also try re freshing the farm sometimes the farm needs to be re loaded to display the correct time
