Default The basics after creating your account.

The basics after creating your account.



After creating your account and the game loads you will be asked to create your Avatar Identity.

You need to type in your Avatars name.
Then click on either the female avatar or male avatar.
Then click the green check mark to save your choces.

In this example the Avatars name is DARA.
The female avatar has been picked and has a yellow background to show it's been selected.

The next screen you will see is the avatar editor, where you can choose what your avatar appearance will look like.
Click on each selection for Skin, Hair, Eyes, Mouth, Nose, Ears, Eyebrows, Clothes, then chose the options you want by clicking on it. The avatar picture to the left will show you what you have picked.

Or you can click on “Try a random look” to let the game make a choice for you.

When you are done, click on the green check mark to save your choices.
You can always change the avatar appearance again later, if you wish.



The game will refresh the page and the game will load with sound and music playing.
If you wish to turn off the Sounds or Music in the game :

Hover over the sound icon and another icon will drop down, the music icon. To turn all sounds off, click on both icons to turn them red.


The mayor will then take you through the basic steps of farming and what the tools and some icons are for. If you wish to repeat them just click on the Help icon top right of your screen, it looks like a question mark.
You will have a few basic things on your farm to start you off:
One orange tree, one apple tree, one lemon tree, 5 white fences, a water trough, 1 pig, 1 sheep.
14 fields:
2 of which are plowed ready for planting,
2 tomato fields, 2 potato fields, 2 rice fields, ready to harvest.
2 tomato fields, 2 potato fields, 2 rice fields in various stages of growth


At the bottom of the screen is the Game bar which has 2 main sections.


Your profile picture if you have one, will show in the neighbours bar and you will also see the head of your avatar displayed under the profile picture in the neighbours bar as well as those of any neighbours you will have.
If you have a Facebook account you can use your current Facebook profile picture to use on the Website. If you wish to do this, please click on this link for instructions:
https://www.slashkey.com/forum/showt...30#post6555230

The Add Neighbor and Chat section is where you will any of the farming friends you add as your neighbours. When you get more than 7 neighbours you can use the arrows to the left to scroll the bar to see more of them. In some cases with browsers and various types of computer mouse you can also click and hold down your left mouse button on those spaces to drag them, or use the mouse wheel to move them left/right.
NOTE: Currently you can not add Neighbours by clicking on the blue silhouettes as that has not been implemented yet. There are other ways that you can add Neighbour and also Buddies explained in Chapter 05 Neighbours and Buddies Farmer Lists.

The CHAT button on the left side of the Neighbours bar allows you to open and close the Chat box. When someone arrives at your farm it will automatically open in place of where your neighbours are showing. When the Chat box is open, just start typing and then click on SEND to send your message or if you are using a keyboard, you can click the Enter/Return key on it instead of clicking on Send. Anyone online where you are can see what you have sent.


The right side of the Neighbours bar also rereferred to as the Game bar, is where you have some basic tools. Hover over some of the icons there and it will tell you what it the tool or icon is.
  • The "Walk" icon (green man) is what you click on after you have been using a tool and want to stop using it.
  • You have tools for harvesting and plowing, toolbox (where more tools are and any new tools you buy and add to storage will show).
  • You can access your Farmers List for finding Neighbour/Buddy Requests, changing them between lists.
  • You can see the trophies you earn.
  • Access the Store, your Gift Box, Storage and the MAP.
  • There are more details on all of these items in the other Chapters of the Game Guide. As you harvest crops, harvest or chop trees, harvest flowers or fish those harvests will be sent to your storage for you to use in facilities or just sell at market.
  • You can also move some of those tools to other positions in that area and even use some of the neighbours spaces to put more tools or icons in those areas. More details about how to do that (known as Changing Shortcuts) are in the How to Use Shortcuts post later in the Game Guide.


Full Screen when clicked on will fill your monitor screen with the game screen, making it much bigger to see, which some find easier.
You will find that as you progress through the game and get more involved in other features that you may want to come back out of Full Screen to use them. To go back to normal screen just click on the Full Screen icon again. The plus and minus just below that allow you to zoom the farm in or out (if you have a mouse wheel, you can use that to zoom instead of clicking on the icons).

This is the Help icon, it is at the top right corner of your game screen. Click it if you need another look at the basic guide to some of the items.


Congratulations. Now you know the basics, you can play!

Default How to change my appearance?

You can change your appearance at any time by clicking on your avatar and selecting "Change Appearance" which will appear in a pop-up.

This will launch the edit avatar screen where you can change your appearance.
