NOTE: Posting for help from inside the funeral or religious facilities has been disabled. This is so people don’t use those facilities to post and avoid other people marking those posts as offensive which can negatively impact the game. Just use any other facility to ask for help.

Default I don't want to send my facilities requests to everyone. How can I do this?

1. When you get the first pop-up that asks you "Do you want to ask your friends for help?" BEFORE you click the green check mark, remove the check mark from "Show on Farmtown Wall Request" that will prevent the request from showing on Wall requests where all your friends can see it. When you have done that, click the green check mark to bring up the posting box.

2. If you want to select certain friends to send the facility requests to, click on the audience selector to the left of the "Cancel" button. In this image it show it is set to "Public":


Once you have selected your friends or friends list, click on "Post to Facebook" and your post will only be seen by the friends you chose.


Please note: the "Post to Facebook" button changes every now and then you may have "Share" or "Submit" instead of "Post to Facebook"

Default Facility Manager



The Facility Manager is a tool in your Yellow Toolbox to make it easier to navigate and manage your facilities.



At the top right of the Facility Manager you will see several icons. These help you with your facilites and how you wish to view them in the Facility Manager.


The Ingredient planner when you click on it will open a new window. From there you can see what you need to supply your facilities and what is missing according to the filters you choose. To set it for one full run select "15days" in the middle filter. You can change the various filters according to what you want to see. Once you have made your choices click "Update". Figures showing in black are what is required, figures in red are the amounts that are missing.


The Search icon will let you search for a specific facilty and will place it in the viewing area. Use the arrows to scroll up or down if you have a few that meet your search criteria.



The Funnel icon will bring up the Facility Filter

Here you can choose which type of facilites the Facility Manager will show you and which farms.

The drop down arrow for regular facilities will let you choose from
All
Non-Workable by Friends
Workable by Friends
Part of the NCC
Part of a Chain
Restaurants
Producing Common Ingredients - includes all facilities that produce at least one common ingredient, ie: the Art Studio is not included because the Leather Mask is not a common ingredient but the Brewery is included because the FarmTown Beer is a common ingredient
Producing Ingredients - includes all facilities that produce at least one product that can be used as an ingredient, ie: the Art Studio is included because the Leather Mask can be used as an ingredient to make stick masks
Containing Disabled products- this will allow you to quickly locate those facilities with temporarily disabled products so you can enable them again
The drop down arrow for Services will let you choose from
All
Part of the NCC
Part of a Chain
Containing Disabled products

The A-Z icon will allow you to sort your facilites
Alphabetically : Alphabetical order
Production Chain : will sort the facilities in such a way that will allow you to work continuously from top to bottom, as facilities with primary ingredients are on top, when you get to the complex facilities at the bottom you will have stored all the primary ingredients already required for these complex facilities.
Done : will sort to the facilites that have finished products.
Utilization : will sort the facilities with the most in production first down to the least. This is useful if you wish to see any facilites not at 100% production. You can scroll down to the bottom of the list and see what is not at 100%.
Custom Order : will allow you to view your facilites in the order you choose. Select that option and you will see a new icon appear top right of the Facility Manager
Click on it and it will bring up a new window showing you all your facilites. Click on a facility and drag it to the new position to view your facilites in the order you choose. Click the green check mark to save.
Farm Number : will order your facilites from farm 1 onwards
In each Facility box is a question mark. Clicking on this will open the help menu showing what products the facility makes. Top right of that window is a picture of the facility, if you hover over that it will tell you the name of the facility and how many owned. Just above that is the picture of a tool, this tool is the start all or load all tool for that facility. Hovering over the tool will tell you the name of the tool. The blue link at the top of the window will take you to the ingredient planner, or if it's a service, the stock planner. Click on a the picture of a product to see what it needs to make it and if it's used elsewhere there will be another link you can click telling you where it's used or stocked. Each time you click either a product or a link you can click the back arrow to go back to the previous window.


The Five Blue Buttons located at the top of the Facilty manager require tools to use them.

Harvest All : Allows you to harvest all animals in all farms related to the tool you own, with one click. The tools required to harvest ALL animals are Milking Station, Shearing and Cutting set, Egg Collector, Manure Collector (Note: you cannot harvest manure from pigs until you own a manure spreader as the manure harvested from pigs gets stored with the manure spreader.).

Store All : Allows you to store all products in all facilites for the tools that you own, with one click. The Tool required for ALL facilites is the Purple Forklift.

Start All : Allows you to start all productions in all facilites related to the tools you own, with one click. The tools required to start ALL facilities are Turbo bottling machine, Turbo drive thru system, Turbo tables and chairs, Turbo mixer, Turbo belt dryer, Turbo loader, Turbo conveyors, Turbo packaging machine, Turbo workbenches, Turbo mobile utility carts, Turbo Ordering Station.

Cash Out All : Allows you to cash out ALL service facilites for the tools you own, with one click. The tool to Cash Out ALL of the facilites is the Armored Truck.

To find out which tools work with which facilites check out the Game Guide Chapter 21: Tools For the turbo tools look for the regular tool and the turbo tool will be listed in the same post. So for "Turbo bottling machine" look in the "bottling machine" post.

The check boxes located in each box for each facility only appear if you own the relevant tool to start or load all for that facility. Removing the check mark, as shown in the Windmill picture below, will prevent any products in that facility from starting/loading using the blue buttons. The added check mark allows all products to be started /loaded provided that when you open the facility you also have a check mark in the box for each product you want to produce/load. If there is a particular product you do not wish to produce/load, just remove the check mark on that product.

Default Service Facilities

These are a new type of facilities that will not produce any tangible goods but instead will allow you to make coins by providing a service. It works similar to the current facilities, the difference is that you don't start any production on them, but rather load them with products so they can provide a service.

You can check the "What's in Stock" tab and see what is still in stock, what has been used and to Cash Out the coins you have made for whatever have been used so far. You will make about 50% more profit by loading the products into the service facilities and then Cashing Out later, compared to just selling the products in the market.

Please note to Cash Out from the service facilities requires that you have fuel to do so.

You can now ask friends to 'refer clients', which basically is allowing your friends to work the service facilities. Click 'what's in stock' and click 'get clients" and send out a request. To work on a service facilitiy click 'refer clients':



NOTE: Posting for help from inside the funeral or religious facilities has been disabled. This is so people don’t use those facilities to post and avoid other people marking those posts as offensive which can negatively impact the game. Just use any other facility to ask for help.

Default Chapter 13 - Facilities

What is Show Facility Info?

When you have more than one farm, you will see a green grid top left of your game screen titled Show Names. Each green box below that represents one of your farms.

If you click on "Show Names" then, at the bottom of the screen, on "Show Facility Info" it will bring up a new window like this , but will show you your information.



If you mouse over each box it will tell you the farm name.

The legend at the top left is as follows, if you mouse over each of the options there will also tell you what it means and how many of those types of facilites you own>>

FW - Factories Workable
FN - Factories Non-Workable
SV - Services
AB - Animal Buildings

Each box is one of your farms, each farm will show you how many of each type of the facilites you own on that farm. If you click the on one of the boxes it will take you to that farm.
