Default What are the Gifting Tools?

Q. What are the Gifting tools?
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.

Default What is the Mobile Lookout Tower?

Q. What is the Mobile Lookout Tower?



A: This tool provides detailed visibility on your Super Neighbours farm content by enabling the 'Show Work Info' when visiting them. "Show Work Info" is accessed by clicking on "Show Names" in the farm grid top left of your game screen. After looking at the Show Work Info of your Super Neighbours, your farm selector will be updated to only show the blue color on farms where there is work available.

Also, this tool will reduce the waiting time to pull updated work information from 10 to 5 minutes, whether you are at a farm or at the market.


How to use the the Mobile Lookout Tower:
  1. First place the tool into your Item storage. It does not count towards your item storage capacity and you will not see it in the toolbox as you don't need to click on it to use it.

  2. Go to one of the farms you are a Super Neighbour for. When you arrive look top left for the farm grid.
    Without the mobile lookout tower every block in that grid will show up as blue that you have not yet visited. There could be work there but you will not know what work there is and if it's actually ready to be worked on yet.
  3. Now you own the Mobile Lookout Tower what you do is click on Show Names at the top of that grid.


    A window will open showing you the names of all the farms. Click on Show Work Info at the bottom right of the window.




  4. The work available on every farm will then show up for you. It defaults to showing you all available work.



    The Legend top left of the window tells you what the colours represent. Hover your mouse over each of the colours and it will tell you what type of work it is, fields to plow, seed, harvest, trees to chop, fishing etc. This is an example of what you see when you hover over the blue F




  5. If you are there to do all types of work you can now close that window by clicking the red X top right and the grid will update for you like this:


    • Blue blocks are the farms with work on that you have not been to yet.
    • The yellow block represents the farm you are on. This may or may not have work on it. If it does you will have been automatically handed a tool to work with.
    • A farm that is the default green or olive colour is one you have already been to or is one where the SN permissions have been disabled.
    • The red dot is a farm you have permission to design
    .

If you have permissions to do all work, but for some reason you only wanted to do a specific job, or the farm owner has requested they only wanted one type doing that day, you can get Show Work Info to show you just the farms with that type of work on it.

To do that:
  • click on Show Names in the grid top left,
  • click on Show Work Info,
  • then in the Legend click on the job that needs to be done.

The window will then update to show you which farms has that work on. You can then just click on one of the farms that is showing it has that work and it will take you to that farm. The grid will then update for you showing you only the farms in blue with that type of work.

Default What are the Super Storage Sheds?

Q: What are the Super Storage Sheds?

A: These tools increase your ITEM Storage capacity only, NOT your Harvests & Products Storage.




Super Storage Shed (Red) doubles your item storage capacity.

Super Storage Shed (Orange) increases your item storage x 4.

Super Storage Shed (Green) increases your item storage x 6.

Super Storage Shed (Purple) increases your item storage x 8.

To see how your Item Storage is calculated, click on the following link >>

How many items can I put in storage?

Default Are there tools for working overlapped fields?

Are there tools for working overlapped fields?

Yes there are the EX Tools. These tools use the new faster method of harvesting, plowing and planting existing fields called Extent Mode. You must own all the relevant single layer tools up to 16x16 before you can by these tools.

Overlapping fields is still not officially supported by the developers.

However if you do it on your farms or work on other players farms that do overlap fields, these new set of tools will enable a much faster farming, very similar to the experience of using the Tree Shaker 20x20 to harvest up to 400 trees, or when using the Fishing Turbo Boat 20 x 20 to harvest up to 400 overlapped water items in a squared area the size of 5x5 fields.

When selecting the one of the new EX Tools instead of the Eye in the bottom right of the game screen you will see the picture of the tool you have clicked on.

When you click on that icon, you will see a vertical toolbar with 3 buttons.
The one in the top (Highlight) selects the old method of highlighting each individual item.
The one in the middle selects the New Method (Extent) of highlighting only the perimeter of the area where the tool will operate. Instead of highlighting all the fields, this new method will just highlight a fixed squared section of the farm which works faster and with less manual mistakes. When you use this method you will briefly see "Extent mode selected" in white lettering near the top of the game screen.
The bottom button closes the box.

Also, the tool will always operate as if the Eye was closed, meaning, the recently worked items will be hidden once the work on them is completed.

PLEASE NOTE: Using the Ex tools in Highlight mode will make the tool work like the single layer 16x16 tools or larger single layer tools IF you own them.

To use these tools, 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.

Default What is the Flower Freezer- Unfreezer Tool?

Q: What is the Flower Freezer - Unfreezer Tool?



A: This tool allows you to freeze or unfreeze flowers in bulk instead of one by one.
Note: Super Neighbours can NOT use this tool on your farms. You must own the tool yourself and freeze/unfreeze flowers yourself.


There are 3 options. .
  • Freeze only those flowers that you planted in the current session
  • Freeze all flowers by type e.g all Carnations
  • Freeze all flowers on this farm

Click on the tool and then click on a flower you want to freeze/unfreeze. You will then see the following menu giving you the options. . .



At the top of the box choose whether you want to Freeze or Unfreeze.
Choose one of the three other options you want and then click the Green check mark to proceed.

Note: Frozen flowers will still die if not watered, but they will return to their glory in the first water once they've died. This means you can always bring back dead flowers by simply re-watering them!

Irrigating rather than watering a frozen flower will revert the growth process to the beginning again and they will have to regrow.
