Default What and who are my neighbours?

Your neighbors are your friends from your social networking site who also play the game

It is easier to access their farms through the neighbour bar at the bottom of your screen gaming. Similarly, they can come and see your farm easily too.



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?

Go to the "My neighbours" tab above your game screen
If your friends play FarmTown, click "Add as a neighbour."
If your friends do not play FarmTown, select them in the list at the bottom of the page, and invite them!

Default How do I get to my neighbours' farm?

You can go to your neighbours' farms 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.

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:

a) Join 'User': Sends a message to 'User' asking for its permission, if user accepts, you will navigate to where that user is located.

b) Ask 'User' to Join You: Sends a message to 'User' asking if he/she wants to Join You. If user accepts he/she 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.

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!)

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 or Transplanter 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".




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.
