Default What is the Armored Truck?

Q: What is the Armored Truck?



A: The Armored Truck is a tool that allows you to Cash Out ALL Service Facilities in one click. This tool cost 30 Farm Cash. It's NOT the other armored truck that costs coins, that one is just decoration.
NOTE : Cashing out Service facilites uses Fuel.




The "Cash Out All" button is located at the top right of the Facility Manager.

Default What are the Freestyle Farm Designers?

Q: What is the Freestyle Farm Designer?


A: These tools are upgrades to the Yellow Edit Tool (Hand) in your Toolbox. The yellow edit hand that everyone starts out with, looks like this:


The Freestyle Farm Designers, commonly referred to as the orange, green or purple hands, have more capabilities.





Orange Freestyle Farm Designer: Allows Overlapping of Paths and Ponds. This tool enables paths and water items to almost fully overlap other items.

When you own this tool and place it into Item storage, you will see both the yellow hand and the orange hand in your toolbox.


Green Freestyle Farm Designer: This is an upgrade to the Orange Freestyle Farm Designer which allows Overlapping of All but Plants. If you already own the Orange Freestyle Farm Designer you can buy this Green Freestyle Farm Designer to allow any item except plants (fields/crops/trees/flowers) to almost fully overlap other items.

When you own the Green Freestyle Farm Designer as well as the orange one and place it into Item storage, you will see just the yellow hand and green hand in your tool box. There is no need to show the orange one as the green one will do the jobs of both the Orange and Green Freestyle Farm Designers. Do not sell the Orange hand, it needs to remain in storage so the game can see that you own it, should you then want to upgrade to the purple freestyle farm designer.

You can use the Orange and Green Freestyle Farm Designer tools while designing on other farmers farms as well. When you have permission to design a farm, which ever tool you have, the most upgraded one and the yellow edit hand will show up in your toolbox to use.

Examples of using the orange and green freestyle farm designers:

Using the Orange Freestyle Farm Designer: By overlapping river corners an a bit of imagination, you can create waterfalls....
Using the Green Freestyle Farm Designer: You can also bring other items closer to each other, like the overlapped waters, to create an effect.....
The Green Freestyle Farm Designer will also let you place some items off the edges of the farm. However this is something that was not intended by the developers to be done with the tool, so you will have to play around with what you are trying to move off the edge as some things will only go off two of the edges not all of them and you may find you need to rotate the item to get it off the edge of a farm. NOTE: If you choose to place waters off the edges of the farm, they can only be fished with a turbo boat.



Purple Freestyle Farm Designer: This is an upgrade to the Green Freestyle Farm Designer which allows overlapping of All but Plants (fields/crops/trees/flowers). The Purple Freestyle Farm Designer does the jobs of the orange and green freestyle designers and also allows you to:
  • rotate items with a click
  • buy items from the Store and place them with every click
  • buy multiple items from the Store and place them with every click
  • use items from your storage and place them
  • and allows you to almost fully overlap some other items in your farm without requiring to have the full physical space in the farm

    WARNING: The buying options allow you to buy Farm Cash items as long as you have enough FC to cover the items you are buying. Be very careful that you remember to click the green man to stop buying more of the item you are placing!

When you own all of the Freestyle Farm Designers and place them into storage you will see in your toolbox, the yellow edit hand, the green freestyle farm designer and the purple freestyle designer.

To use the Purple Freestyle Farm Designer, place it into Item Storage and then open your toolbox and click on the purple hand. You will then see the following options :
  • Edit items - this is what the green hand currently does.
  • Rotate Items - when you chose this option the item you click on will rotate, then you move the item to the new position and click again to set it down. Click the green man to stop using the tool.
  • Buy one item from the Store - opens the store for you to chose what to buy and overlap.
  • Buy multiple items from the Store - opens the store for you to choose what to buy. Each click buys the item and places it on your farm. Click the green man to stop using the tool.
  • Use items from your Storage - opens your storage for you to choose what to place on your farm and overlap. Click the green man to stop using the tool.


This tool can be used when designing for others but will NOT allow you to buy any Farm Cash Items for them or take any Farm Cash Items out of their Item storage. In the store you will see that all Farm Cash items are showing as Locked.

When you are using the tool on a farm that you have permission to design, the tool menu is slightly different in that you see a choice to use Items from your friends storage. Example:


The following picture is to explain the difference in the physical space needed to place an item on the farm with the The Purple Freestyle Farm Designer compared to placing it without the tool...



Normally when you place an item on the farm, you need to have a space the same size or larger than the item you are placing, the example here is for an open pit mine, as indicated by the yellow lines.

With the Purple Freestyle Farm Designer you only need a clear space the size of the area indicated in bold red, which is the same size a single pine tree would use.



Important: The Purple Freestyle Farm Designer will let you buy multiples of Farm Cash Items, as long as you have the Farm Cash available to spend, so be very careful that you are buying the right item before you proceed. As soon as you are done buying the item you want make sure you click on the green man to stop buying!

Note: The Purple Freestyle Farm Designer will allow you to buy and overlap waters off the edges of your farm, but if you choose to do this you must own a Turbo Fishing boat in order to be able to fish those waters.


To use the Freestyle Farm Designer, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Edit Items" and then click on the item.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. You do need to do this if you want to use the Orange or Green Freestlye Farm Designers on someones farm (for the Design this Farm Together or Super Neighbour with Design Permissions Features). Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.

    NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

Default What are the Animal Harvesters?

Q: What are the Animal Harvesters?

A: The animal harvesting tools are used to harvest ALL the animal sheds (providing you have all the tools needed) using the 'Harvest All' button in the facility manager. There are 4 tools.







- Milking Station - Harvests ALL dairy sheds in ALL farms.


- Shearing and Cutting set - Harvests ALL wool sheds, rabbit hutches and stables in ALL farms.


- Egg Collector - Harvests ALL chicken coops in ALL farms


- Manure Collector - Harvests ALL pigsties on ALL farms
NOTE: To store manure you must own the manure spreader.


When you own at least one of these tools you can use the Harvest All button located at the top of the Facility Manager.



Once you own at least one of these tools, you will also have the option to designate a farm a "Quest Farm" which would stop the animals sheds from being harvested on that farm when using the "Harvest All" button which could be useful for quest purposes. For more details see the following post >>
http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthr...58#post5836358

  • To use these tools you must place them into Storage. It is always best to do this, that way the game can see which tools you own should an upgrade to a tool be released in the future.
    NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

Default What is the Excavator?

Q:What is the Excavator?



A: It is a tool that's used to sell items in bulk from the farm. For protection, this tool will never work with any Farm Cash items OR any Buildings, Trains, Ships, Tools or Facilities.

NOTE: Super Neighbours with the correct design permissions can use this tool on your farm when designing.

For example. If you decided to sell all your water items, it will not sell your Farm Cash waters.

You can use it on any field, plowed fields, growing crop fields, etc but it will always delete and not sell the fields.

Note: When you delete a crop, it does not leave a harvested or plowed field where the crop was planted. It deletes the field it was planted on.

This is an example of the window you will see when you click on a crop to delete it. The top option will delete that specific crop and the fields it is planted on. The second option will let you delete ALL crops and plowed and harvested fields on the farm.

Default What is the Tower Crane?

Q:What is the Tower Crane?



A: It is a tool that's used to move items in bulk to storage. This does not work with farmcash items or facilities.

NOTE: Super Neighbours with design permissions can NOT use this tool on your farms. They do not have access to your item storage and have no way of knowing if you have room for any items in there.

Default What are the Multi Planters?

Q: What are the Multi Planters?

A: Multi Planters allow you to plant multiples of flowers or trees, from 16 up to 1600 at a time.
There are 7 sizes of Muti Planter tools and they all have several planting options.




They must be bought in size order, so to buy the Multi Planter 8x8 you must first own the Multi Planter 4x4. To buy the Multi Planter 12x12 you must own both the 4x4 and the 8x8 and so on.

The Multi Planter works on both new trees and flowers from the store, those in your gift box and those you have in storage as long as you have enough clear space on your farm to place them.

To use the Multi Planter, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Plant Items" and then follow the instructions below.
  • However, if you are wanting to plant from storage you need to place the tool into storage. It is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way the game knows what tools you own should another upgrade be released. You can then access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.



Buying new flowers or trees from the Store using the Multi Planters:

Click on the Multi Planter you want to use and the store will open.
Once you have chosen which tree or flower you want to plant, then you can choose from one of the following 6 patterns in which to plant them.

Click on the pattern you want to use and as you click on the farm it will plant those in that pattern.



Using the Multi Planters to plant flowers or trees from storage:
  • Open your Storage to the Item section.
  • Find the trees or flowers you wish to plant. You may find it easier to either use the search box to find them or filter Item Storage to trees or flowers.
  • Hover over the box containing the flower or tree and you will see a Multi button with a drop down arrow to the right and also a Use button. (The Use button is for planting one by one.)


To use the Multi Planter click on Multi and a list will appear showing you the available sizes as shown below.



Click on the size you want to use and then you will then be shown the planting patterns for you to choose from. Click on the pattern and as you click on the farm, it will plant what you have selected in the pattern you chose until you run out of those in storage.

As of April 2020, the Multi Planters can now overhang the bottom edges of the farm so you don't have to switch to using a smaller tool to get it to fit within the farm. This is useful when you want to add trees or flowers to the bottom edges of an upgraded farm size.

Default What are the Transplanters?

Q. What are the Transplanters?

These tools are upgrades to the Multi Planter tools. They will transplant trees and or flowers from one part of the farm to another part of the same farm as long as you have enough clear space on your farm to move them to. To buy one of these you must first own the same size Mulitplanter.

Example:
To buy the Transplanter 4x4, you must first own the Multi Planter 4x4
To buy the Transplanter 8x8, you must own both the Multi Planter 4x4, Multi Planter 8x8 and Transplanter 4x4.

*NOTE* The Transplanters will NOT move trees/flowers from one farm to another farm.



The 4x4 Transplanter will move up to 16 trees or flowers.
The 8x8 Transplanter will move up to 64 trees or flowers.
The 12x12 Transplanter will move up to 144 trees or flowers.
The 16x16 Transplanter will move up to 256 trees or flowers.
The 24x24 Transplanter will move up to 576 trees or flowers.
The 32x32 Transplanter will move up to 1024 trees or flowers.
The 40x40 Transplanter will move up to 1600 trees or flowers.


To use your machine to transplant, it must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Transplant Items"
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.


Once you have clicked on the tool you will see this menu where you can choose to transplant "All trees AND All flowers", "All trees OR All flowers", "specific trees OR flowers". Chose your option then hover over the trees/flowers you want to move to highlight them. When you have highlighted them click on them to move them, then when you have moved them to the new position, click again to set them down.


The "Duplicate Pattern" option duplicates any flowers and trees pattern you have in your farm.
  • To use this, put a check mark in the box next to Duplicate Pattern
  • Then click on one of the 3 options in blue to chose which trees/flowers you want to duplicate
  • Hover your mouse over the trees/flowers on your farm that you want to duplicate to highlight them.
  • On the first click in the farm it will select the pattern and each click after that will buy from the store all the required trees and flowers and will plant them in your farm.

This option does not duplicate trees or flowers that are available via gifts only.

Default What are the Gifting Machines?

Q. What are the Gifting Machines?
A: These gifting tools range from decreasing the time until you can send gift again, to increasing the gifts you receive and increasing gift box capacity.




Without the tools you can send gifts every 8 hours and have a maximum of 150 gifts in your gift box.



Gifting Machine (Grey in colour) lets you send gifts every 4 hours.

Gifting Machine (Red) lets you send gifts every 3 hours.

Gifting Machine (Orange) lets you send gifts every 2 hours.

Gifting Machine (Green) doubles the amount of gifts you receive from the Send Gifts page.

Gifting Machine (Purple) expands your Gift Box capacity to 500.

Gifting Machine (Brown) expands your Gift Box capacity to 1000.

Gifting Machine (Pink) gives you 3 gifts for every 1 that you accept.

Gifting Machine (Yellow) gives you 4 gifts for every 1 that you accept.


*NOTE* For the tools that multiply gifts This ONLY applies to crops, trees, flowers, animals that can be harvested (horses, cows, hens, turkeys, goats, geese), freshwater bait, seawater bait and production ingredients.

The amount of Bonuses and ingredients you can have in your gift box remains the same at around 130.

You must buy the previous tool in order to buy the next one. So to buy the Red gifting tool, you must first own the Grey one and so on.

These tools must be placed in your Item Storage to work Once they are there you don't have to do anything with them, the game will recognize which ones you own.
