Post Release Updates - May 15th, 6:20

- When expanding farms in the Realtor Office you will not have to reload the game anymore to buy the next expansion. After you buy one expansion the store will open again automatically so you can buy the next one if you want without a reloading of the game.

- When selling products at the market, the feedback telling you the total amount of coins earned was moved to the bottom of the screen to not interfere with your selling operations.

Post Release Updates - June 3rd, 2:20AM

- Fathers Day Items: 4 items at the top of the Fathers Day category in the store and 5 at the bottom.

- Improvements to the Ingredient Planner:

a) Results are now shown twice as fast and more uniformly displayed

b) Up to 10 result screens are cached in memory until you close the planner, so if you requested results for say, 'All Facilities / 15 Days / Order By Missing' for the second time it's very likely that the cached result will be shown immediately

c) If you click on a product to check its ingredients, when you go back to the main ingredient planner screen the results will be shown immediately

d) A new 'Include disabled products' checkbox will force the ingredient planner to include disabled products in its calculations

e) When you order by 'Missing', we show the ingredients with 'missing count' (red small numbers) in descending order, that part didn't change. What's new is that for ingredients that do not have a 'missing count', meaning those with 'extra count' (black small numbers), we show them in ascending order, so even when you do have enough in storage for the selected period, you may be running out of them soon.

- The 'Show Farmtown Wall Requests' section was split in two: 1) 'Show Facility Wall Requests' and 2) 'Show Other Wall Requests'

- The bonus and ingredient requests that you can not act upon are now shown in pink like it happens with the facility requests

Post Release Updates - June 4th, 1:00PM

- When you reuse a ship itinerary, if any farmer in the itinerary is no longer your neighbour it will removed from the next itinerary automatically

- Bugfix: Can not see the Train Details of other farmers when visiting their farms
- Bugfix: Display issues in the Farm Selector Manager for users with less than 41 farms
- Bugfix: When reaching a new level sometimes the list of items offered on that new level was missing

Known Issues:

- None.
