Default How do I send gifts?

How do I send gifts?
  1. Click on the Send Gifts tab located at the top of your game screen.
    This is an example of some of the gifts you could see:




    Some of the gift items, on the gift page, have level restrictions, when you have reached the level required for those they will become available for you to send to your friends.

    Even if you have not reached the level to be able to send a particular item from the gifts page, your friends that have reached the level of the gift that is locked for you, can send them to you and will be able to accept and use them. If you received and placed a gift on your farm that you can't gift yourself, and you would like more, like a pear tree for example, you can then click on that pear tree and request it as a gift so your friends know that you would like that specific gift.

  2. Choose a gift by clicking on the picture of the gift you want to send, the dot underneath the picture will turn blue to show that gift is selected. In the above example Achiote tree is selected.

  3. Click on Proceed to Send
    (If you do not want to send gifts just yet click the “Skip” button and your farm will load.)

  4. You then see some options to chose from:


    Farmer Lists is all your friends that already play Farm Town. When you chose this option in the window that opens you have more options to
    change the view of your friends to a select group.
    All Farmers: This will display all your friends that are currently playing Farm Town, including those that may have stopped playing for a while, perhaps for a vacation.
    My neighbours: This will display just your neighbours in the game.
    Recently Sent to: This will display the friends that you have recently sent gifts to.
    Farmers helping me: This will display any friends that have helped you, like sending you a gift, worked at your farm, boosted your train.
    Non Farmers: This will display your friends that do not play the game yet.

    Search Friends Manually : Will allow you to search for individual friends to send gifts to.
    You can also use the search box to search for specoific friends, click in the are where it says Search more friends and start typing a name. As you type all friends meeting that criteria within the filter you chose, will come into view.

    Play will just skip the gifting process and load the game.

  5. When you choose one of the blue buttons a window will open where you can choose your friends to send a gift to. It will display your friends profile pictures, if they have one, and their names. The following picture has been edited to protect privacy.
  6. Click on each Send button to the right of each friends’ name to select them. You can select up to 50 friends at a time.

  7. To send the gifts click the Done button at the bottom of the window.
    Your gifts will be sent and your farm will then load. If you have more than 50 friends to send gifts to, just go back to Send Gifts to send more gifts to more friends.



This is the "Show Times" tool in the toolbox. You can send gifts every 8 hours. You can also check how long until you can next send gifts again via this tool in the (Gamewide section). If you own the Gifting tools you can reduce this time further. For those see What are the Gifting Tools?

Default How do I accept/exchange gifts via My Requests?

How do I accept/exchange gifts via My Requests?

Click on the My Requests tab located at the top of your game screen. The number in red shows you how many Requests you have, a maximum of 50 at a time.

A page like this will load:



Here you can either individually Accept and or Exchange a gift or Exchange and Accept them All.

To accept one or some of the requests, click the Accept button to the right of the picture of each gift.

If you prefer a different gift to the one that was sent to you you can exchange it, click on the Exchange button. The gifts page will load and you can click on the picture of the gift you want, then it will bring you back to the accept page to accept it.

You can also Boost your friends trains from here. Click Accept to boost the train.

If you are only accepting some of the gifts, when you are done click the Play tab to load your game. Your gifts will be in your gift box.



If you wish you can Accept All gifts as they are shown by clicking the Accept All button. All gifts will then be sent to your in game gift box.

Or you can Exchange All gifts for a single type of gift that you want. Click on the Exchange All button, the gifts page will load and you can click on the picture of the gift you want, then it will bring you back to the accept page. and then you can use the Accept All to send them to your gift box in the game.



If you have not already sent out gifts, then after your gifts are sent, you will have another option to “Send Gift Back to All” to the friend(s) you just accepted gifts from.



Click on Send Gift Back to All and the gift page will load for you to choose one type of gift to send. Once you have chosen the gift a new box will open listing your friends’ names and the name of the gift you are sending.



Click the Send Requests button to send the gifts.

If you have more gifts that you would like to accept or exchange just click on the My Requests tab again.

When you are done with gifting, click the Play tab at the top of your screen to load your farm.

Your gifts will be in your gift box. Click on the Gift Box to open it and store or use your gifts.

Default How do I store/use the gifts in my gift box?

How do I store/use the gifts in my gift box?

This is your Gift box. If there is a number in red on the box it is telling you how many items are in there. This could be a combination of gifts from the gift page, bonuses and ingredients. Click on it to open it.

The items in the Gift Box that are sent from the Gift Page are all combined by type. Example: When you have multiples of the same gift, instead of seeing 10 boxes of 1xFuel, you will see 1 box of 10xFuel. You will be able to keep 150 gifts on your Gift Box plus about 130 Bonuses and Ingredient Packs at the same time. Bonuses and Ingredients are always listed separately.

On each individual item you will see two or more of these options depending on the item you have. “Multi”, “Use”, “More” or “Store”

Multi: For Trees/Flowers. Allows you to use the multiplanters if you own them to plant your trees/flowers directly from storage. For more information on multiplanters please click on the following link >>
http://r1.slashkey.com/forum/showthr...38#post5825038

Use: Allows you to plant/place each flower/tree/decoration individually. For animals it lets you place them on your farm. Click on “Use” then plant/place them on your farm. It will continue using those items until you have used all of that gift that you have in your gift box.

More: Clicking on this allows you to post a request to Facebook asking your friends to send you more of that item.

Store : Allows you to individually store each item. Crops and products get sent to your Harvest/products storage. Trees/flowers/decorations get sent to your Item storage. Bait from your gift box gets sent to your waters. Note: Bait received from sending a bonus get sent to your harvest/products storage to use in your Fishing Tackle shop , if you own one. Animals will be sent to any animals buildings that have room for them on the farm you are on.

Can I store more than one Item at a time?

Yes you can. Top right of the gift box you will see “Store Ingredients” just to the right of that is a small drop down arrow. Click on it and you will see the following options:



Store Ingredients allows you to store all crops/products from animals or facilities, bonuses and ingredients in one go. They will be sent to your Harvest/Products storage. Click on “Store Ingredients” to select that option, it will turn blue, then click on “Store Ingredients” again to store them.

Store Animals allows you to send your animals straight to the animal sheds you have on your farm, if there is room in there for them. Click on “Store Animals” to select that option, it will turn blue, then click on “Store Animals” again to store them. If there is no room in your animal sheds on the farm that you are on, they will not move, you can then try another farm with animal sheds on.

Store Plants will allow you to send all trees or flowers to your Item storage in one go, as long as you have enough room in your Item storage for them. Click on “Store Plants” to select that option, it will turn blue, then click on “Store Plants” again to store them.

A-Z Clicking on this allows you to change the way your view your items in your gift box, from default to alphabetically. Click on whichever option you wish to change the view to.



To sell your gifts in storage please see the following post Chapter 14 - Selling

Default Why am I limited on how many gifts I can send?

Why am I limited on how many gifts I can send?

The limits are set by Facebook. Currently you can send 50 gifts at a time. If you want to send more gifts to more of your friends just reload the “Send Gifts” tab.

Default Can I send Farm Cash to a friend?

Can I send Farm Cash to a friend?

Yes you can send Farm Cash to Neighbours or Buddies. The requirements to be able to send are as follows:
  • To send up to 500 Farm Cash:
    The requirements are that either you have been playing the game for more than 6 months or you have purchased at least 120 Farm Cash. You must also have enough Farm Cash in your account to be able to send it.

  • To send more than 500 Farm Cash:
    If you have already sent 500 FarmCash or more in value to friends, counting Gift Certificates and FarmCash items, then you will have to purchased at least 305 FarmCash to be able to send FarmCash gifts to friends again. If you have already spent that amount in the game so far, then this rule does not applies to you.

How to Send Farm Cash:

Click on the Store icon then click on the “Other” tab. At the top of the page you will see the following >>




Hover your mouse over the picture of the amount of Farm Cash you wish to send and will appear.
Click on “Send” and a new box called “Pick A Farmer” showing your friends profile pictures and the names of their avatars will appear like this >>



You can change this view to a select group by clicking on the funnel filter top right...



All Will show both your Neighbours and Buddies
My Neighbours will show just your neighbours
My Buddies will show just your Buddies.

Use the scroll bar to the right of the box to scroll to find your neighbour/buddy.

When you have found your friend’s avatar name click on “Pick”.
A safety popup will appear telling you how much Farm Cash you are about to send, the avatar name and the cost. Example...




IMPORTANT! Check the details in the pop up are correct. This is your only chance to cancel. It tells you how much Farm Cash you are sending, the avatar name you are sending to and the cost of the item. Once the gift has been sent it can not be returned or changed. If the details are correct click the green tick to send. If the details are not correct click the red X to cancel.

Once you have clicked the green check mark the Farm Cash will be deducted for your account. Your friend will receive their FarmCash Gift Card in their Gift box in the game. They need to look in there to find and accept it. Once accepted they will be credited with the Farm Cash.

    The requirements are that either you have been playing the game for more than 6 months or you have purchased at least 120 Farm Cash. You must also have enough Farm Cash in your account to be able to send it.

  • To send more than 500 worth of FC or FC Items:

If you have already spent that amount in the game so far, then this rule does not applies to you.


How to Send Farm Cash Items:

Click on the Store icon and find the Farm Cash Item you want to send. You must have enough Farm Cash on your account to cover the cost of the Item you wish to send. Hover your mouse over the picture and "Send" appears. Example below..



Click on “Send” and a new box called “Pick A Farmer” showing your friends profile pictures and the names of their avatars will appear like this >>

Once the gift has been sent it can not be returned or changed. If the details are correct click the green tick to send. If the details are not correct click the red X to cancel.

Once you have clicked the green check mark the Farm Cash will be deducted for your account. Your friend will receive their Farm Cash Item in their Gift box in the game. They need to look in there to find and accept it.

The game will NOT tell you if they already have the item you are trying to send. Please check with them that they need or want the item BEFORE you send it.

You will NOT be able to send an upgraded tool to someone if they do not own the previous tool needed. For example IF they do not own the 4x4 seeder you will not be able to send the 5x5 seeder. If you try to, you will see a pop up telling you this when you click the green check mark to proceed. Example of the warning:
