Default New Release -- August 4th, 2016

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on August 25th, 4:00PM.

Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following new features and bug fixes: EN ESPAÑOL AQUI
Version française ICI

1. 12 New Decorations: Pink Fall Mums, Yellow Fall Mums, Orange Fall Mums, Red Fall Mums, Flowers in a Planter (Farm Decor), Redwood Tree, Sequoia Tree (Trees), Circus Locomotive, Circus Wagon, Hand Car (Trains), Small Wave and Big Wave (FC) (Ponds).

2. Next 5 expansions for Farm 30: See prices below:

24x24 - 14000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
26x26 - 14500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
28x28 - 15000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
30x30 - 15500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
32x32 - 16000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. Improvements to the Neighborhood Chains Contest: Every Thanks received from a user will have a little something attached, a random ingredient that you can use in some of the facilities in the current contest. We will be adjusting the quantities in the next few days.

Also, currently there are 2 different 'Thanks' messages: 1) The 'Thanks' you receive for purchasing a new Farmcash Facility and 2) The 'Thanks' you receive for helping a neighbour rank in the top 3 at the end of the contest. In this later case (2), we will also adjust the quantity of your rewards based on the final rank of that neighbour and also how much more you helped that neighbour compared to others.

On the screen showing the list of Thanks received, 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.

4. Fishing Turbo Boats 12 x 12 (FC): This new Turbo Boat catch all fish in all water items in a squared area the size of 9 plow field. This tool is especially useful for fishing up to 144 overlapped water items at once. You can use the Freestyle Farm Designer tool to overlap water items.

5. Fishing Turbo Boats 16 x 16 (FC): This new Turbo Boat catch all fish in all water items in a squared area the size of 16 plow field. This tool is especially useful for fishing up to 256 overlapped water items at once. You can use the Freestyle Farm Designer tool to overlap water items.

6. Other Fixes and Improvements released on the past 1-3 weeks:

a) 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
b) Optimized the 'My Neighbours' tab, it load much faster now, especially for users with high amount of friends. Also, some users were missing their names under the picture, this bug is now fixed too.
c) Optimized our back-end servers allowing response times 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
d) The Processing phase of the Start All operation is a bit faster now when most of the facilities are full. We have a couple more optimizations in this area coming in the next few days
e) Migrated to the new version of the Facebook Platform, a change required by facebook

7. Other minor Improvements:

a) BugFix: Players were able to use the big crop tools to harvest trees/flowers one by one, with the 'Eye' open, and been hired only for crops. Also, the same about using the 1x1 and 1x2 crop tools to harvest trees/flowers, with the 'Eye' close, and been hired only for crops.
b) BugFix: Incorrect amount of earned coins shown when working as an employee and harvesting trees, flowers and fishing
c) BugFix: People posting Belt/Dans bonuses for baits were receiving the gifts from their friends, but when they claimed the gifts from the Giftbox, only one bait was added to their repository
d) BugFix: Incorrect stored amount showing in the Ingredient Planner

8. New Hemp and Horseradish Crops: Used in the Polish Restaurant and in the Hat Factory.

9. New Peacock Feathers animal product: Used in the Hat Factory. You can get Peacock Feathers by harvesting the Peacocks using the Chicken Coop.

10. Polish Restaurant (FC): Produces Polish Food.

Fish in Aspic
Sour Rye Soup
Perogies
Hunters Stew
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Beef Roulade
Pork Breaded Cutlet
Walnut Rolls

11. Hat Factory (Coins): Produces Hats.

Trilby Hat
Sunhat
Flat Cap
Beret Hat
Boater Hat
Peacock Hat
Bowler Hat
Sombrero

New products from other facilities: Hemp Yarn produced in the Textile and Spinning Mill.

12. Appliance Parts Factory (FC): Produces Appliance Parts.

Ceiling Fan Blade
Tube Fridge Condenser
Evaporator Coil
Microwave Turntable
Gold Coffee Filter
Washer Drain Pump
Wine Cooler Door
BBQ Ceramic Burner

13. Hat Shop (Coins): Provides Hat Retail Services and can be stocked with products from the Hat Factory.

Enjoy!

--Raul

PS. We will soon start the development of a functionality that will introduce Ships as a transportation method to get ingredients, it will have a dynamic different to the trains, we estimate this should be completed in about 2 months.

So for the next contest, you should notice that your competing neighborhoods total facilities participating are closer to your neighborhood total facilities participating, this should create a more fair and balanced group of competing neighborhoods.

Post-Release Updates - August 25th, 4:00PM

Planting crops is a little erratic - doesn't highlight evenly. Using 256 seeder on non-layered crop fields.

I am having similar problems with all of my combines. I use various sized ones depending on the farm I am planting. I have all combines except the 256 one.
