Default New Release -- July 27th, 2017

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on August 2nd, 11:20PM.

Hi There,

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

1. 11 New Decorations:

a) A new 'Wooden Unfinished House' with 2 more Wooden Windows and a Window Flower Pot
b) Chain Fence, White Chain Fence, Trolley Car, High Tension Tower, Power Wire, Tiny Sea Foam and Small Sea Foam

2. Next 5 expansions for Farm 33: See prices below:

24x24 - 20000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
26x26 - 20500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
28x28 - 21000000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
30x30 - 21500000000 coins or 25 FarmCash
32x32 - 22000000000 coins or 30 FarmCash

3. Improvements and Optimizations released in the past few days:

a) Farms with lots of water items load and operate much faster, even when overlapped

b) Farms full of plow fields or harvested fields load faster, even when overlapped

c) Decreased farm blinking when farming very quickly. When clicking and moving the mouse quickly while farming, sometimes the game detected those actions as dragging. We made some adjustments to minimize those accidental dragging operations. This also caused a noticeably increase in speed when farming.

d) Improved farm dragging operation on big farms with lot of items, sometimes when you were dragging quickly, the farm didn't move as much as it was supposed to and you were forced to do multiple drag attempts.

e) Bugfix: This was an old bug, sometimes when you reloaded or navigated to a farm, the new farm appeared shifted to the top, and then finally moved down, causing a weird visual effect.

f) BugFix: Sometimes the single harvest tool was not working correctly when a tree or flower was planted on top of a crop field.

4. Log Truck with Chainsaw 32 x 32 (FC): This new Log Truck with Chainsaw chop up to 1024 trees in one click.

5. Fishing Turbo Boat 32 x 32 (FC): This new Turbo Boat catch all fish in all water items in a squared area the size of 8x8 plow fields. This tool is especially useful for fishing up to 1024 overlapped water items at once.

6. Continued working in the Local Facility Chains: This is a functionality that will be released in the next few months, we should have the first part ready for the next release, here are some of the rules so far although some of these may change:

a) A user will be able to create chains with its own facilities by combining multiple facilities of the same type. This feature is not related to the Neighborhood Chains Context.
b) Every certain amount of weeks a user can select 2 facility candidates to convert into chains
c) Only one can be a coin facility
d) One must be a factory and the other one must be a service facility
e) Assuming facility X and Y are paired (output of X is the input of Y, for example the Medical Supplies Factory and the Hospital Service Facility) you cannot have chains of both of them, you will have to decide which one, the factory or the service you want to upgrade into a chain
f) For a facility candidate to earn the chain status, you will have to reach the Dan 7 on each of its products. Dan 7 could only be reached for products produced in facilities that are candidates to be converted into chains.
g) A chain should have at least 2 facilities and a maximum of 3 facilities. A chain with 3 facilities will provide more benefits than a chain of 2 facilities.
h) Chains of factories will provide increased product output. Chains of service facilities will provide increased profits.
i) A factory chain will produce 2 different types of product quality: standard quality, and a new premium or export quality products to be stored in a separate dedicated storage, for example, Surgical Gloves and Premium Surgical Gloves, the product types and images are all the same, there will just be 2 different quality versions of each product produced in a chain.
j) Premium products cannot be consumed by your own service facilities, you can sell them in the market for increased profits or you can trade them with your friends through partnerships
k) For example, if you own a chain of Medical Supplies Factories, you can enter into a partnership with one of your neighbours that have a chain of Hospitals and all your premium products produced by your Medical Supplies Factory chain will be automatically consumed by your partner in his/her chains of Hospitals, generating even more profits for both of you.

7. Deli (FC): Produces Delicatessen Style Food.

Reuben Sandwich
Pastrami on Rye
Roast Beef Sandwich
Avocado BLT Sandwich
Club Sandwich
Salami Omelette
Egg Salad
Tuna Salad

New products in other Facilities: Russian Dressing in the Sauce and Condiments Factory.

8. Food Ingredients Factory (Coins): Produces Food Preparation Ingredients. For now there is only one product produced in this facility but this may expand in the future.

Pectin

9. Mobile Accessories Factory (FC): Produces Mobile Accessories.

Phone Stand
Phone Armband
Clip-On Phone Lens
Girl Phone Cover
Selfie Stick

Smartwatch Lux Strap
Kid Tablet Cover

10. Jam and Jelly Factory (Coins): Produces Jams and Jellies.

Grape Jelly

Raspberries and Rhubarb Jelly
Plum Jam
Apricot Jam
Peach Jam
Fig Jam
Spiced Pear Jam

New products in other Facilities: Pectin in the Food Ingredients Factory.

11. 'Taste of the World' Service Facilities: This is a new theme of Service Facilities that will offer an opportunity to use the products produced in the different regional and country restaurants we have in the game. This time around we are releasing the 2 Service Facilities mentioned below.

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

13. Taste of Mediterranea (Coins): Provides Mediterranean Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Mediterranean Restaurant.


Note to our Fans: As some of you already know, Adobe recently announced that support for their Flash platform will be discontinued at the end of the year 2020. Rest assured that this will not affect Farmtown. We already started working on migrating the FarmTown game away from Flash and onto a newer and more resilient platform.

What does this mean for you? You won’t notice any significant difference when we upgrade the Farmtown game. In fact, we expect that the game will run faster, and it will let us add more features to the game that we haven’t been able to add due to the performance limitations of the existing Flash technology.

You will be able to continue playing Farmtown in your browser, in addition we’ll also add support for Facebook Gameroom for a better game experience.

In the name of the Farmtown team, we thank you for your continuous support and loyalty.

Enjoy!

--Raul

Thanks for the surprise release!!!

Harvesting with my friend again and the top of his farm is cut off.

Only seems to happen on the first farm we get to. Then when we move to the next they are all ok.
