Hiring and Bonus Chest
 
This thread is for reporting problems concerning Hiring and Bonus Chest.

Important Things To Remember:



Hiring neighbors or strangers:

Harvesting crops, trees, flowers and chopping trees:

Neighbors/friends - If you hire a neighbor, friend, or buddy you will receive a large box instead of a normal box. The benefit of a large box is only if you go to the market place to sell the item, there is no benefit of a large box in loading factories.

Strangers - If you hire a stranger from the market place you will receive 1 regular box and 1 large box.

Remember: You only receive products for harvesting and NOT experience points.

Plowing fields: You will receive 1 XP for each plot that is plowed no matter who does the plowing.

Doing your own plowing it cost 20 coins.

Neighbors/friends - When you hire a neighbor/friend it costs 10 coins per plot to plow.

Strangers - When you hire a stranger it costs 15 coins per plot to plow.

Fishing: You would get the same amount of fish whether you fish your waters or if you hire someone. If you have bait you will receive double the fish caught.




When you are hired to work other people farms, you will get the following:

Crops: When you harvest crops for someone else you will receive 25% of the selling price of the crop that you are harvesting and you will receive 10% of the crop that you are harvesting. You don't receive experience points for harvesting crops.

Trees, flowers and fishing: When you harvest trees, flowers, chop trees or fish you will get 100% of the selling price instead of 25% like you get for the crops, since the crops you would receive more coins when selling, this was changed to try and balance out what the employee received for trees, flowers and fishing. You will also receive 50% of what you harvest, chop or fish compared to the 10% for the crops.

Plowing: When you plow someone else's farm you gain 5 coins and get 1 XP for each plot you plow.



Bonus Chest:

When you are hired by a stranger from the market place, you can earn a bonus from the Bonus Chest that will be located in the upper left corner just under where the coins and fuel are located. To be able to collect from the Bonus Chest you must complete ALL of the work on that farm that you are hired to do. If you don't see anymore work, but the Bonus Chest is saying there is more work to complete, you can do the following to see if there is something that is hidden:
  • Reload the current farm. Make sure that it is the current farm only, if you click on a different farm that will end the Bonus Chest on the farm you were working on.
  • The eye icon in the bottom right corner set it to hidden (eye is fully closed) if it is not already set to hidden.
  • For each task you are hired to do, pick up each of the corresponding single tools and see if there is any work that needs to be completed.

IMPORTANT! IF you only have ONE farm to work or you are on the LAST farm to work and you are going back to your own farm instead of back to the market, you must still click the bonus chest BEFORE you leave in order to collect it.

*** Note: The Bonus Chest works only if you are hired by a stranger in the market place. If you are hired by a friend, neighbor or buddy you will not get a Bonus Chest. ***

Chest
 
If you hire someone from your buddy list and they are not a neighbor should the bonus chest be showing up for them? :confused:

Hi angel,
Sorry, but no they do not get the bonus chest. Neighbors and those on the buddy listare excluded from that.

Have you tried reloading that farm, with everything hidden except flowers? sometimes you can also just click on the eye to see what is left to be done... some flowers need to be done with the single tool also...

Bonus chest counting way too slow
 
After the March release, I have had problems when hired to harvest and plow, I can be totally finished with a farm and have to then wait 5 minutes for the bonus chest to finish counting to get my bonus. I didn't have this problem before the last release except with fishing layered fishing which does it too. I have waited about 30 minutes on some farms for the bonus chest to finish counting. Is there any way to speed up the bonus chest? It is really becoming a big problem. I have tried everything I know and nothing speeds it up.

Hi DitzyLuvBug,
Have you tried clicking the save button and then refreshing the farm? That is the only thing I know that will speed it up.

Yes when I am done harvesting I click saved as that is how I know it is finished...when saved screen pops up. I cannot reload farm at all until it is finished counting.
