Default What and who are my neighbours?

These are Friends that you have on Facebook that also play the game. Once you have sent them a neighbour request and they have accepted, they become your neighbour in the game. To see how to add a friend as a Neighbour scroll down to the next post.

As you progress through the game you will find you need neighbours for your 3rd farm, working facilites, quests, trains, ships and other features.

An easy way to access their farms is through the neighbour bar at the bottom of your game screen. Similarly, they can come and see your farm that way as well.



When you click on "Visit xxx Farm" you will be taken to thier farm

The "Order by xxx" will let you change the order in which your neighbours are displayed in the neighbours bar.

Default How do I add a friend to my neighbour list?

Click on the "My Neighbours" tab above your game screen.

You will then see something like this but it will be a list of your friends. Profile pictures have been removed for privacy.



Near the top of the window you will see a message, in green, saying your friend is currently away from their farm. The "Go to xxx Farm" allows you to visit that farm to tend, water, rake etc.

Below that is a "Sort Players By" filter. You can click on that and change the filter to show your friends by Default, Activity, Level, Best Diversification, Help Given or Name. When you are looking for a friend to add as a neighbour we suggest you filter the list to "Name" so it will be easier to find them.

The "Show Active Players Only" lets you also filter the list to show only active players IF you place a check in the box.



When you have changed the filter to what you want, search for your friend.

Friends with a White background are those that have played the game or are playing the game but are not your Neighbour. If you want to add them as a Neighbour click on "Add as a Neighbour". This will send a request to them which they will find in the "My Requests" tab.


Their background will then turn yellow, example below >>

You then have another 3 options in the box, one is "Remind" which lets you send them a message on Facebook. "Cancel Request" lets you cancel the request if you changed your mind. The last one "Send gift" takes you to the gift page where you can pick a gift to send to them.

When your friend has accepted your request, from the My Requests" tab, their background will turn blue, example below >>


NOTE: Sending a Neighbour request and them accepting it, puts that friend on your neighbours list. For you to be a Neighbour for your friend they will need to send you a Neighbour request, which when sent, you will find in the "My Request" tab. Once you have accepted their request you will become their neighbour.


If your friends do not play FarmTown, there is a window right at the bottom of the My Neighbours tab titled "Select friends to add as your neighbours" where you can Invite them to play!

When you reach your limit of neighbours, you should see at the top of the Neighbours tab a message in red saying "Your neighbour list is full. Please remove some neighbours before you add more."
If you try to add more 1 of 2 things will happen. Either when you add a new neighbour 1 of your current neighbours will drop off your list. Or when you try to send a request the request will not be sent and the box will not change to yellow background.

Default How do I get to my neighbours' farm?

If your neighbour is online, a green light appears next to their picture in your neighbour bar which is located at the bottom of the game screen.

Clicking on their picture in the neighbours bar will also give you the following options:
  • "Visit xxx's Farm"
  • "Join xxx": Sends a message to your neighbour asking for permission to join them wherever they are, if they accept, you will navigate to where they are located.
  • "Ask xxx to Join You": Sends a message to your neighbour asking if they want to Join You. If they accept they will navigate to where you are located.

These options work in every place, you or the other user can be anywhere, including farms, marketplace, realtor or inn.

The other items in that list let you send a message to them, see their Co-operative Quests, if they are doing them and have at least one open, set them as a Super Neighbour or Remove them as a Neighbour.

Another way to get to a friends farm or a neighbours farm is by clicking on the "My Neighbours" tab above your game screen which takes you to the list of all your neighbours.
If you click on their photo, you will go directly on their farm.

Default Neighbours and buddies? What's the difference?

To be your neighbour, a player must be part of your friends on Facebook.
When you visit your neighbours you can help raking leaves, watering their farm or flowers or remove weeds. This option appears once a day (and works towards you neighbour trophies!). Neighbours can also help you with other features of the game like trains ships and quests.

In addition, you can send them gifts.

None of this is possible with your "buddies" who are only contacts in the game

Default Can I have more than 8 neighbours?

The neighbours limit is based on how many digits the database can hold, it varies because not everyones ID is the same length. ID's are normally 8 to 15 characters in length. so it can vary from 80 to 110. depending on the ID's of your neighbours. At the present time, it is a limitation of the game, and can't be increased.

When you reach your limit of neighbours, you should see at the top of the Neighbours tab a message in red saying "Your neighbour list is full. Please remove some neighbours before you add more."
If you try to add more 1 of 2 things will happen. Either when you add a new neighbour 1 of your current neighbours will drop off your list. Or when you try to send a request the request will not be sent and the box will not change to yellow background.

To get neighbours, we must be friends as explained above. When one of your friends play FarmTown, it appears in your list of neighbours, on a white background. You just have to make a request to be neighbours. When they accept they will appear on a blue background. They are now your neighbour!

Note that for a neighbour to appear on your neighbour bar they must accept your invitation to be neighbours.

Default How do I remove a neighbor?

First decide if you still want them to have you as their neighbour. If you do then keep reading. If you do not then scroll down to "How to remove yourself from their neighbours bar" and do that step first before you remove them from your neighbours bar.

How to remove a neighbor:

Either find you neighbour in the neighbours bar at the bottom of the game screen, click on their picture and choose "Remove Neighbour"

OR Go to your "My neighbours" tab and click "remove neighbour".

If you have already removed this person from Facebook before removing them from "My neighbours", then :

If you have no remove option, you can also type in this link:

http://apps.facebook.com/farmtown/friends/?delete_id=

Add their profile number behind "delete_id=" , paste the whole thing in the address bar and hit enter.



How to remove yourself from their neighbours bar:

Click on their picture in your neighbours bar and Choose "Visit xxx's farm". When you arrive look bottom left of the screen for a yellow tool box and click on it. You will then see this >>


Click on this to remove yourself as thier neighbour.
Click on this to remove yourself as thier buddy.

Default How may I know the number of neighbours I have ?

To know how many neighbours you have, three solutions :
  1. When you get some fuel, the number of you neighbours appears on the calculation screen.
  2. Click on the "Neighbours" tab in game... and count them!
  3. However, the easiest way to know is to open your trophies list: the first trophies tell you how many you have!

Default What is a Super Neighbour?

What is a Super Neighbour?

It's main purpose is to allow you to select one (or may be a few) neighbours that will be permanently hired to work your farms when you go on vacation or have to be absent from the game for a while. They will be able to access your farms at any time to work them without the need for you to be present.

How do i make a neighbour a Super Neighbour?
When you click on your neighbours picture in the panel at the bottom of your game screen, you will see an option to "Set as Super Neighbour"



Click on that and you will be able to set various permissions that will allow your neighbour to work your farms that are not Private.

Permanently hired for farming will allow your neighbour to harvest/plow/chop/shake trees/harvest flowers and fish using their own tools or yours. Add a check mark for "Permanently hired for farming" and then add a check mark for each of the jobs you would like your Super Neighbour to do.

Allow Planting will allow them to plant your fields with any crop that your game level allows using your coins. You and your super neighbour will earn 2 xp per plot seeded. When selecting a seed to plant, the Tooltip with the amount stored will reflect the amounts for the farm owner (not theirs), same for the belts shown.
If you own the manure spreaders, they will be able to fertilize your farms for you.

When using tools, the fuel will be used from your fuel first unless you have changed the setting.There are 3 options for allowing your SN to use your fuel. Click the drop down arrow to change it to what you want.


Permanently Hired for Design allows them to design the farm of your choice without the need for you to be present. They will be able to move any items, freeze or unfreeze flowers. They will have access to any Freestyle Designer tools (green/orange hand) that you or they own. The default setting for which farm to design is set for "Current farm" you may change that by clicking on the drop down arrow to the right and choosing the name of the farm you want them to design. They can only design ONE farm at a time.

Allow Buying and Selling Items With My Coins allows them to buy any coin items using your coins, they may sell your coin items and also do the following. . .

a) Use his or your Dozer, Multi Planter, Plower, Transplanter or Excavator on your farm. This option must be checked if you wish them to plow new fields on your farm, the reason for this is that the money for the plow fields are taken from the farm owner so this should be approved by you. Your neighbour will never be able to delete Farm Cash items.

b) Buy new ground covers for your farm.

Your super neighbour will NOT be able to buy/sell animals for you.



You can also disable the Super Neighbour's permissions per farm at the farm level. Go to the farm you do not wish them to work and click on the Farm name. Add a check mark for "Disable Super-Neighbour Farming". They will then still be able to visit that farm but will not be able to work it.




To check who you have made a super neighbour Look in your neighbours bar at the bottom of your game screen. All those with a red dot are your super neighbours. You can also sort your neighbours bar by super neighbours. Click on anyone in the bar and choose "Order by Super-Neighbour".

Currently the only way to know if you have been made a Super Neighbour is for your neighbour to tell you. When you go to their farm you will have a red dot in your picture in the neighbours bar. If you have been hired to design a farm for them, when you get to thier farms, there will be a red dot in the farm grid on the farm that you can design. The following example shows permission to design farm 1.



To remove the Super Neighbour permissions, click on your super neighbors picture in the neighbors bar choose "Edit Super Neighbour" and remove ALL of the check marks for ALL of the options. Then click the green check mark to save.

Please, if you choose to make a neighbor a super Neighbor, make sure you communicate with them exactly what it is you want them to do, especially if you are allowing them to use your coins. We have seen many complaints that SN's are doing what they want with the farms and NOT what the farm owner wants.

As of July 11th 2018 you can now designate what your SN will plant on each of your farms.

Open the tool box and click on the Super-Neighbour Manager. A new window will open like this >>



Each box is one of your farms. The green shading on a farm is the farm you are currently on. Click the little drop down arrow next to each farm and it will open a list of alphabetically sorted crops for you to choose from. Use the scroll bar to the right of the list to scroll to more crops. Click on the name of the crop you want planted. Your selection will turn blue.




will show you the names of your farms.
will return you to the previous window.
will change ALL farms crop choice back to Any. You will receive a warning pop up when you click it. Click the green check mark to confirm or the red x to cancel.
Note: Your SN will not know beforehand , unless you tell them, what you have chosen for each farm. When you have chosen "Any" they will be able to plant any crop they choose. If you have designated a specific crop, when they go to plant they will still see a full list of seeds to chose from, but no matter which seed they select the one you designated to be planted on that farm will be the one planted. For example, if you chose wheat to be planted on a farm and your SN picked a different seed from the list to plant, their selection will be ignored and wheat will be planted.
