Default New Release -- May 16th, 2018

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on June 7th, 7:50PM.

Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes. En Español AQUI

1. 25 New Levels: 25 items in the Buildings, Fun, Farm Decor, Motion and Other categories in the store.

2. 46 x 46 farm expansions for farms 21 - 35: The price is 30 Billion coins or 30 Farm Cash.

Note: With the optimizations we released last year bigger farms perform well enough even on old computers and even better if the farm contains lots of duplicated items.

3. Show History of offline messages: When you open an offline message (the envelop on the top of the game) there is a 'Show History' button that will show the past 50 messages in the conversation with that user.

4. Added a new Zoomed Out level: Now there is a total of 8 Zoom levels.

5. Show Work Info improvement for layered farms: On farms with multiple layered items, say lot of trees on top of layered crop fields, most of the time the representation of available work was not accurate, it was showing only fields or crops available but not the trees or flowers on top, with this fix you will see all the types of work available independent if the farms is layered or not.

6. Faster collection of the Job Completion Bonus: When you are hired and you finish the work on the current farm, instead of clicking the chest to collect the job completion bonus and then navigate to the next farm, you can just navigate to the next farm and the screen to collect the bonus will appear automatically.

7. Working neighbour facilities faster: When you land in neighbour farms to work their facilities, by default you will not see any items in their farms, this will make the farm to load a bit faster. You can still click on the 'Show Items' button to make all items visible again.

8. Other improvements released in the past 3 weeks:

a) Replaced the 'Let employee use my fuel' checkbox by a dropdown with 3 options: 1.Let employee use my fuel first 2.Let employee use my fuel last 3.Do not let employee use my fuel
b) Added this dropdown to the Super Neighbour setup screen, so you can specify whatever fuel option you like for each of your Super Neighbours
c) Improved message delivery reliability in the marketplace, so there are more chances for notification messages like the 'hire confirmation message', the 'Employee Ready to begin' and the 'Employee Began working' to successfully be delivered to the receiving user.

9. Window Cleaning Supplies Factory (FC): Produces Window Cleaning Supplies.

Squeegee Holster
Washer Sleeve
Rectangular Bucket
Glass Scrapper
High Rise Descender
Suction Cup Grabber
Bosun Chair
Water Fed Brush

10. Fortune Teller Supplies Factory (Coins): Produces Fortune Teller Supplies.

Palmistry Hand
Ouija
Crystal Ball
Fortune Teller Cup
Crystal Ball Ring
Astrology Pendant
Fortune Teller Scarf

Teller Cards

11. Beach Bar (FC): Produces Cocktails.

New products in other Facilities: Grenadine Syrup in the Syrup Factory. Tequila, Gin and Triple Sec in the Distillery.

12. Fortune Teller Wagon (Coins): Provides Fortune Telling Services and can be stocked with products from the Fortune Teller Supplies Factory.

13. Taste of Argentina (FC): Provides Argentina Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Argentinian Restaurant.

14. Taste of New England (FC): Provides New England Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the New England Restaurant.

Hi Jeannine,
Is it possible you put 2 on the same farm? If you do then only 1 will show in facility manager. If not then please try clearing your memcache (link below), then when the page of unsetting text opens close that as it is done.
If your farm is open close it. Then reopen and try again.
