Default New Release -- November 29th, 2018

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on December 19th, 10:00PM.

Hi There,

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

1. 25 New Holiday Items: 3 as gifts, 12 at the top of the Holidays category in the store and 10 at the bottom.

2. New Farm 38 and the first 5 expansions:

New Farm (12x12) --- 31000000000 or 50 FarmCash
Upgrade Farm 14x14 - 31500000000 or 20 FarmCash
Upgrade Farm 16x16 - 32000000000 or 20 FarmCash
Upgrade Farm 18x18 - 32500000000 or 20 FarmCash
Upgrade Farm 20x20 - 33000000000 or 20 FarmCash
Upgrade Farm 22x22 - 33500000000 or 25 FarmCash

3. Updated Train and Ship product output according to the initial release rule: When we released the trains years ago, the amount of each product delivered was supposed to be equivalent to 15 or 30 days worth of production, 15 days if the product was produced in a Farm Cash facility and 30 days if the product was produced in a Coin facility. There were also a few exceptions, products made in the The Petrochemical Plant and the Rubber Factory delivered 15 days worth of production, even when those were Coin facilities.

During the following years we have been increasing the production amounts on the factories but not on the output of the trains and ships, so with this new release we are in sync again with the original rule. See below all the product increases which applies to both, trains and ships:

Plastic Granules -----------> 33%
Rubber Sheet -------------> 125%
Cardstock -----------------> 50%
Paper Roll -----------------> 250%
Cotton Textile Roll --------> 100%

Red Ink --------------------> 133%
Yellow Ink -----------------> 133%

Pile of Silver Nuggets -----> 213%

4. New way for changing your status in the Hiring and Trading marketplaces (released 3 weeks ago): Instead of using the Change Status Message option in the avatar menu, you now have easily accessible buttons on the right side of the screen to show others what you want to do on those markets. See more info about this in the previous release thread notes.

5. Other minor improvements released in the past 2-3 weeks:

- BugFix: When switching from full screen to regular screen the new market status icons were covering other elements of the game
- When you click the CHAT button to open the chat, you can start typing right away instead of having to click on the chat text bar first
- Your XP score on the top now have space to fully display up to 9 Billion XP points
- The special levels from 976 to 1000 gave 2 farm cash each as a reward
- Removed the red circle under the trophy icon if all trophies were earned already

6. My Super Facility (coming in the next 1 or 2 releases): We started the development of this feature 2 weeks ago, the idea is to provide another way to acquire high demand products and also to incentivize and make trading easier between farmers. We are still adjusting some of the rules but in the meantime read below for a general idea of how the feature will work:

a) Every week you can upgrade one of your ingredients producing facilities (Mines, Mills, Semi-Trailer, Fish Farming, etc) to a Super Facility for the remaining of the week

b) The exact facility that will be upgraded will be chosen at random by the game

c) Every instance of that Super Facility will produce X% more than usual each day of that week

d) The extra production will be split in 2 buckets

e) You will be able to sell all the products in the first bucket to any farmer in the Trade Market at very
low prices, so there will be significant motivation to accept your offer

f) You will be able to sell all the products in the second bucket to any of your neighbours, again, at very low prices

g) For every product you sell, you will earn one back as a gift from the Mayor

h) At the end of each day, all the unsold products on each bucket are lost and the buckets starts filling again the next time you start productions on the Super Facility

7. Tanning Supplies Factory (FC): Produces Tanning Supplies.

Tanning Goggles
Tanning Cap
Tanning Bed Pillow
Heart Tanning Stickers
Sun Wall Decor
In Wall Timer
Bed Acrylic Shield
Bed Disinfectant

8. Food Container Factory (Coins): Produces Food Containers.

Pizza Box
Carryout Food Container
Carryout Soup Container
Soup Bowl
Food Container
Kitchen Canister Set
Meal Prep Container
Hermetic Jar

9. Tanning Salon (FC): Provides Indoor Tanning Services and can be stocked with products from the Tanning Supplies Factory.

10. Soup Kitchen (Coins): Provides Food Services for Low Income Families and can be stocked with products from the Food Container Factory, Soup Restaurant, BBQ Restaurant, the Instant Food Factory and the Ice cream Shop.

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

12. Taste of Morocco (FC): Provides Morocco Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Moroccan Restaurant.

Sad Statistics : Less then 10% of all lost/missing cats ever find their way back home, only 15-20% of lost /missing dogs find their way back home and only because they were micro-chipped. collars and tags can fall off, break or be removed, don't take a chance that your 4 legged family member will end up a sad statistic.
