Default New Release -- August 9th, 2018

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on August 29th, 6:30PM.

Hi There,

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

1. 25 New Levels: Items located in the Buildings, Farm Decor, Motion, Furniture and Other categories in the Store.

2. Last 5 expansions for Farm 36, see prices below:

34x34 - 30500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
36x36 - 31000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
38x38 - 31500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
40x40 - 32000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
42x42 - 32500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
44x44 - 33000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash
46x46 - 33500000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. System to request bonus rewards for recently earned Belts and Dans: This area of the game has always been pretty unstable and players complained about:

a) Missed bonuses
b) Too many message boxes shown when multiple Belts/Dans were earned during a Start All operation in the Facility Manager
c) Not been able to claim the most valuable bonuses you were interested in

To minimize the issues above we have added a new tab to the 'Your Belts' screen named 'Recent Belts'. That screen will show all the Belts and Dans you have earned in the past 12 hours so you can select which reward bonuses to claim.

Notice that the previous rules have not changed, meaning, you can only claim up to 5 bonuses in a 12 hour period.

4. Bulldozer Ex 8 x 8: Delete up to 1024 items at once, either buildings and decorations OR plants and fields OR both, in a squared area up to 8 x 8 plow fields.

It works similar to the other Extended Mode tools but with more options, you can select what to delete and the size of the tool before you start using it. Also, the yellow square moves from one tile to the next, similar to the way the Plower tool works, giving you more flexibility on what area to clear.

5. Other Improvements released in the past 2 weeks:

a) Performance improvements to farm loading times, specially heavy loaded farms, eliminating the slowness introduced by Adobe Flash Player version 30
b) Changing ground cover was triggering a timeout error when hired for design

6. Increased Honey production by 12% and Yeast by 16%: This would help with the new demand of these products by the new Meadery facility.

7. Belgian Restaurant (FC): Produces Belgian Food.

Shrimp Stuffed Tomatoes
Mussels with Fry
Waterzooi
Eel in the Green
Stoemp with Sausage
Filet Americain
Belgian Meatballs
Brussels Waffles

8. Haberdashery Supplies Factory (Coins): Produces Haberdashery Supplies.

Fabric Scissors
Thimble
Sewing Tracing Wheel
Sewing Thread
Zipper
Sewing Machine
Pin Cushion
Dress Form

9. Meadery (FC): Produces Meads.

Classic Mead
Apple Mead
Maple Mead
Cherry Mead
Blackberry Mead
Elderberry Mead
Vanilla Chamomile Mead
Fire Mead

10. Haberdashery Store (Coins): Provides Haberdashery Supplies Retail Services and can be stocked with products from the Haberdashery Supplies Factory.

11. Taste of Vietnam (FC): Provides Vietnam Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Vietnamese Restaurant.

12. Taste of New Orleans (Coins): Provides New Orleans Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Cajun Restaurant.

Enjoy!

--Raul

Fabulous about the missing bonus belts Raul, well done.

However, at the moment I'm getting a constant popup box telling me I've earned a black belt in whatever harvest I'm doing at the time when I'm harvesting on a neighbour's farm, that shouldn't be happening should it?

Thanks Raul!


Please note members that Brussel Sprouts now have a use in the Belgian restaurant. The dish Stoemp with Sausage uses them.

Hi Hyacinth,
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.

Reopen and see if it is still happening.

Thanks Taz, have cleared my memcache and yes it is still happening. I'll just turn the message off but wanted you to know there was a glitch.

PS then I get another popup titled Your Belts and a message that flashes across the screen saying 'there are no new belts available to you at present', which is correct because I know I'm just about maxed out on my belt bonuses!

For one wonderful moment I thought they had all been reset, wishful thinking I guess!

Thanks for the update. Small problem, I bought one of each of Taste of Orleans and Taste of Vietnam and was not given a choice of direction that they faced. I tried to rotate them after I bought them and was not able to do so. Thanks again for the update and the Farm Cash.
