e) When clicking on the Claim Reward button at the end of a Neighborhood Chains Contest, if your neighborhood ranked on the first 3, the Mayor will offer 2 options:

1) OK, let me thanks my neighbours first -> this option will close the Mayor message and open the My Neighborhood Chains tab automatically for you to thanks your neighbours
2) Never mind, just claim my reward now -> this option will close the Mayor message and will claim your rewards right away

Post-Release Updates - July 7th, 12:20AM

- Released a fix for the problem of not being able to earn bonus when hired and using the Turbo Boats and flowers were present on the farm.

Post-Release Updates - July 8th, 9:00PM

- Released a fix for users having issues doing Cash Out or Store All in the Facility Manager.

Post-Release Updates - July 13th, 3:30AM

- Released the Puerto Rican Restaurant and the Pigeon Peas Crop.

Post-Release Updates - July 14th, 5:00AM

- Optimized the My Neighbours tab, it load much faster now, especially for users with high amount of friends. Also, some users were not seeing all the names under the picture, this bug is now fixed too.

Post-Release Updates - July 20th, 7:30PM

- There is a new version of the Chrome browser (52.0.2743.82 m) that fixes 2 issues in the game:
a) When using the mouse wheel in full screen, no extra mouse click is generated
b) Flash text is not blurred anymore

Notice it may require for you to upgrade Chrome manually. Click on the top-right button containing the 3 horizontal lines, then click Help, then click About Google Chrome. The update may start automatically or you may have the option to start it manually.

- BugFix: When using the Transplanters, and moving a group of trees to another location which was very close to the original location, some of the trees went missing.
- Implemented several optimizations in the back-end which allowed our servers to respond 50-200% faster to most farming operations, so the text feedback will finish faster and you will be able to change farms faster as well. This will be much more noticeably on users with slower connections.

Post-Release Updates - July 21th, 6:30PM

- Replaced the Bank facility in the Neighborhood Chains Contest with the Food Flavoring Factory, this was required because the Bank do not grant any XP points.

This change will show up the next time you open the Neighborhood Chains Contest window.

Post-Release Updates - July 29th, 3:30AM

- Yesterday facebook introduced a bug that is causing the title of all farm town posts to be 'Farmtown' instead of the more descriptive text like "I would like to hire you to work in my facilities in FarmTown!".

They estimate this would be fixed in about 7 days.

Post-Release Updates - July 29th, 4:00PM

- We just released a few internal changes required by facebook in relation to upgrading to their new application platform version, these changes should all be transparent to the user, if you notice any issues with the game please report it on this thread.

- We also released a few changes on the 'Thanks' area of the Neighborhood Chains Contest, each user row is highlighted with a different color based on your relationship with that user, blue->neighbour, green->buddy, white->friend and pink->stranger (none of the above).

If it is pink (stranger), you will see a 'Visit' button you can click and visit that users farm to see who it is. This means that this user has you as her neighbour but you don't have her as your neighbour. In any case, once you are at her farm, you may decide to remove yourself from her neighbour list.

Post-Release Updates - August 3rd, 1:00AM

- Sometimes when refilling facilities not long after the last refill, the Processing phase of the Start All operation was taking much more time than the previous attempt. This should not happen anymore.

Post-Release Updates - August 3rd, 4:40PM

BugFix: Facebook names for senders are not appearing on the offline message window, instead there is a ? sign.

Known Issues


- None

Just harvested a farm in the market they had crops and trees on top of the crops got everything harvested and it kept popping up the new 8x8 boat like there was fishing to be done but there is no fishing to do. Therefore you can not collect your bonus. I don't even see any water on the farm.
