New Release -- October 22nd, 2019
 
See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on November 7th, 3:00PM.

Hi There,

We just released a new update with the following features and bug fixes: En Espaņol AQUI

1. 25 New Levels: Items are located in the Buildings, Other, Fun, Farm Decor and Motion categories.

2. 48 x 48 farm expansion for Farms 21 to 30: 40000000000 coins or 40 FarmCash. Please note that these expansions are for the *original farms* 21 to 30. If you have moved your farms around using the Farm Selector Manager then you will need to find your original farms from 21 to 30 to expand them. You can not expand a farm just because it is sitting in one of those locations in your Farm Selector.

3. Log Truck with Chainsaw 40 x 40 (FC): This new Log Truck with Chainsaw chop up to 1600 trees in one click.

4. Turbo Fishing Boat 40 x 40 (FC): This new Turbo Fishing Boat fish up to 1600 overlapped water items in one click.

5. Trading Warehouse Improvements released in the past few weeks:

a) Added a notification message when opening the Trading Warehouse of a farmer that do not have offers created yet
b) Added red counters in the top tab buttons with the number of open offers when visiting others Trading Warehouses
c) The brown dot in the Neighbours Bar and the brown marking on avatar labels in the marketplaces are now aware of the availability of Regular Products Purchase Offers
d) Small adjustments to the layout of the offers to make it more clear when you sold and when you bought products
e) Added 'Rules' and 'Benefits' buttons to the Trading Warehouse screen with explanations of all the rules and benefits
f) BugFix: The earned rewards when selling animal products is now based on the trading limit of the animal product you are buying, not the animal product you are selling

6. Pop-up telling you when you can start your next 'Regular Products' trading period: This will include the trading period number that is about to start.

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

Roof Tiles
Roof Panel
Galvanized Roofing Nails
Vent Pipe Flashing
Shingle Remover
Steel Roller
Cupola
Skylight Dome

8. Austrian Restaurant (Coins): Produces Austrian Food.

Austrian Potato Salad
Sliced Pancake Soup
Wiener Schnitzel
Austrian Boiled Beef
Austrian Goulash
Austrian Roast Pork
Apfelstrudel
Sachertorte

9. Roof Repair Services (FC): Provides Roof Repair Services and can be stocked with products from the Roofing Supplies Factory.

10. Taste of Austria (Coins): Provides Austria Cultural Exchange and Food Tasting Services and can be stocked with products from the Austrian Restaurant.

11. Moving Farmtown Servers to another location: Last month we received a notification from our hosting provider that they had to upgrade the infrastructure of our current data center and that we had to move all of our Farmtown servers to another data center. So far everything goes as planned and we should be completing the move in the next 10 days. In the final moment of the switch we expect about 1 hour to 10 hours of downtime while we migrate the databases.

Enjoy!

Geke Oct 23 2019 06:08 AM

Thanks Raul for the great update. I'm happy with the new stuff again. I found out that the shortcuts for (40x40) Log Truck w / Chainsaw and the Turbo Fishing Boat don't work.

Zeeky Banutski Oct 23 2019 06:40 AM

I'm assuming that farms 21-30 are eligible for the 48x48 upgrade since I was able to upgrade all farms EXCEPT farm 25 -- in its place, I was able to upgrade farm 31...but don't know why there's a glitch there...

Hi Zeeky Banutski,

Yes it is Farms 21 to 30.... in their original order, so if you have ever moved your farm order around, that's why your numbers are different.

Hi Geke,

I've just tried this and they went in fine. Give it another go. Make sure when you click on the new tool and then move over to the spot you want to place it in, that a yellow box appears, before you click again to place it.

I'm pretty sure I reversed all the farm moves I did in the past, but maybe I overlooked one...how can I tell what position it SHOULD be in?

NEVERMIND! I found it

-- I'm not sure if I should wish you condolences or congratulations, so I will just wish the developers luck. I am assuming a notice will pop up in place of the game since many farmers are not all that tech savvy and will be confused by a simple "page not found" error. (Or in my case the brain injury will make me forget we were informed ahead of time.)

Anyway, thanks for the notice and for the excellent upgrades as usual.

Thank you for the upgrades
one request, some way to use points or coins to buy FT$ other than when levels increase:)
BTW, thanks for the answer to my question about my items which were in the tool box.

To Raul
 
Dear Raul, Thank you for updating us and letting all of us know of the new things and changes. Since some farm town servers may be moved does that mean that it will not be on face book? I hope it stays here I love the game you do a great job.:)
Sincerely,:)

Hi AngelBear7042,

All that you are going to see is that you won't be able to access the game for the time it takes to complete the server move. The game will still be on Facebook, it's not moving away from Facebook.

So long Trading Warehouse
 
No more Trading Warehouse for me since the Avatars will be Tan even if they just have items for Sale in the Buy Regular Products section. I just have no interest in buying or selling. Myself, and you'll find others that are only interested in the Super Facility items. When I click on someone, and all they have are items for sale in the Buy Regular Section, I click off of them, BUT they stay tan, so I end up clicking on them over and over. It's very annoying.:(

vda2354 Oct 23 2019 03:15 PM

notice
 
Hopefully you will give us plenty of notice when FT is going to be down for those 1-10 hours?? :)

Hi Dana,
I think you have a misconception about the Buy Regular Products. They are not selling those to you. Instead they are asking you to sell the amount they are asking for at the price they set to them. So you make coins and possibly additional items if you have one of your own set up for that category and sell to them.

marilynnsz Oct 23 2019 03:41 PM

Thanks for the update! Will we get a heads up before the 10-hour blackout?

musselwhite Oct 23 2019 03:43 PM

Updates
 
I believe you have put a to high of a price on the farms and many other things.
I am to the point , where I don't even care to play as much as I did; it is just not fun any more.

Monegobaymom Oct 23 2019 05:49 PM

Is there any way to know when this will be? Hubs is a programmer and I know the problems that can happen. I would hate to lose crops if it goes 10hrs., or worse days if it needs to be backed out, or will fields be frozen so to speak. Thanks

11. Moving Farmtown Servers to another location: Last month we received a notification from our hosting provider that they had to upgrade the infrastructure of our current data center and that we had to move all of our Farmtown servers to another data center. So far everything goes as planned and we should be completing the move in the next 10 days.

Hi Monegobaymom,
There should be a notice above your farms before they do this. Hopefully it will be early enough so we don't plant short term crops.

JohnAlbertini Oct 23 2019 07:48 PM

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us as much ADVANCED warning as possible before the server downtime. This could wreck havoc on ALL our planning and screw us royally!!!

Hi John,
We have asked and yes there will be a notice banner over the farms 1 or 2 days before this happens.
