What are quests?

Q: What are the Regular quests?

A: Quests are a way to earn extra coins on your farm by performing goals. These goals are products that you make using your facilities. A quest might require you to harvest crops, animals, trees, fish etc. You will then use those harvests to make other products until you reach your goal.

You can also earn Farm Cash by completing Quests within a certain time.

How do i complete a quest?
Q: How do i complete a quest?

A: Once you've accepted a quest, you will see a window like this... quest.PNG

At the top of the window it shows you how much time until the quest will expire and no longer count. You need to complete your quest before time expires.

As you can see, this particular quest is to produce Pitch fork. You have to follow the steps in order to complete the quest. The steps that you can do right now are those that are highlighted. In this case, Harvest oak log pile, produce chromite ore, produce iron ore. As you see from the picture above, there is also a number 0/11 etc.. That lets you know how many you will need to complete that step. Fertilized farms DO count as 2 harvests in quest steps.

Each step that you complete, will show a green checkmark on it... quest 1.PNG

Steps that require you to make something in a facility can be done from the Quest Manager. Hover over the facility and you will see an "Open" button. Click it to open the facility and start your batch. quest 2.PNG

Some steps you may see a black circle, that shows you how much time is needed to produce that quantity of the item needed. In the case of the step below, It's just under 6 hours. You can hover your mouse over that circle to get an exact time till it's complete. quest 3.PNG

If you hover your mouse over a step thats not highlighted, it will let you know what steps have to be completed first before that step, as shown below. quest 4.PNG

You MUST complete ALL steps in order to complete a quest

If you can't complete a quest because you don't own a facility, try a lifeline, but please note, that lifelines do NOT help with the final step of the quest. You can also buy that facility to complete a quest with. If you can't do either of those, then you can just let the quest expire.

How much do i get for a quest?
Q: How much do i get for a quest?

A: The prize in coins will be higher depending on:
  • How fast the Quest was completed
  • The complexity of the Quest (amount of Quest Steps)
  • User Level
  • The maximum amount of coins you can earn for a quest is 15 million coins.

Earn Farm Cash while completing Quests: Here are the rules:
  • Earn 1 FarmCash if you have completed at least 3 quests in the last 7 days
  • Earn 2 FarmCash if you have completed at least 8 quests in the last 7 days, this is difficult, only about a 1000 users have done it in the past week, and is more difficult to do continuously
Once you get your FarmCash, you'll have to wait at least 7 days to qualify for more FarmCash rewards. In other words, if you play frequently you should be able to win 1 or 2 FarmCash a week.

The coins and farmcash buttons are independent of each other, so collect the coins!!! then collect your farmcash. Once the 7 days are up and you are able to collect farmcash again, you will either see a black box, which means you haven't done enough quests in order to collect.. or a blue box, which means you are now able to collect either 1 or 2 FC.

These rules may change in the future, specially if we do more changes to the Quests functionality.

How do i claim my prize?
Q: How do i claim my prize?

A: Once you've completed all the steps required, and you have all green check marks, as shown in the image below, you can then click the blue button at the bottom left side of the screen to "Collect Coins" quest 6.PNG

Q: What is the Show Quests button? "Show Quests" button located bottom right of the screen will show you how many quests you have completed and collected the coins for and how long ago they were completed 7 days.JPG

As you can see in the above picture, it shows 5 completed quests done in the last 7 days and one in red text which shows one that is more than 7 days old and will NOT count for the weeks quests.

Q: What is the Claim FarmCash button?
When this button turns blue you may claim your farm cash according to the rules. rules.jpg

What are the lifelines?
Q: What are the lifelines?

A: Quests Social Lifelines: Social Lifelines allows you to complete Quest Steps by interacting with friends. When you are stuck in a Quest you may decide to use a Social Lifeline to help you move forward. icon.JPG - Click the lifesaver icon in the top right of the quest window. The type of lifeline given to you is random, so you will not know what it is until you have clicked it. For now there will be 3 different kinds of Social Lifelines:- lifeline.jpg - Gifting Lifeline - Allows you to complete Quest Steps by using gifts or ingredients from friends. In this case after you accept the gifts or ingredients you will have to Store them for them to be counted toward your Quest Steps requirements.

Example : If you need an ingredient that can be gifted from the gift page or sent via requesting ingredients from a product in a facility that you own, you can use this lifeline to request the item or exchange a gift for it. Once stored it will count towards your quest. Lifeline.jpg - Trading Lifeline
When this lifeline is added back it will allow you to complete Quest Steps by trading goods with other farmers in the Market. This will help if you need a Primary product ( crops, harvested animal products, tree logs, tree fruits, fish and flowers) that can be bought from another farmer . You would need to meet up with them somewhere in the game and both be on line, then they would click on you to sell you what you need.

You can not buy products made in facilities from another farmer. The exception to this rule is if the product you need is made in a Super Facility. You can use this lifeline to buy from another farmer that has a Super Facility making the product you need. Example: If you needed FarmTown Beer and someone has the Brewery as a Super Facility, they can sell that product to you and it will count for your Quest.

The regular/primary products you buy in your Trading Warehouse do NOT count toward your Quest Trade Lifeline. lifeline.jpg - Employee Lifeline - Allows you to complete Quest Steps by working for others in farms or facilities. The product bonuses you get by working for others will count toward your Quest Steps requirements.
This will help if you can gain what you need by being hired to work on a farm or by working a facility to gain the products made in that facility. Example, if the middle part of the quest (not the final step) required a product made in a facility that you do not own yet but a neighbour does, you can work their facility to gain that product for part of your quest.

Lifelines can not be used for the final step of the Quest (1st box shown top left of the Quest). Also, you can only have 1 lifeline in use at any given time.

I did what it said, and theres no checkmark, what now?
Q: I did what it said, and theres no checkmark, what now?

A: There are 2 common reasons why this would happen :-

  • If you haven't stored the previous steps, and you have none in storage, then there would be nothing to complete the next step with, what is already pending in the facility does NOT count towards the step, you must START the required batches for it to count.

  • If you have already used those previous items leaving none in storage before getting to the step needed, or used them in something else, like while filling facilities, then there would be nothing left in storage for you to start the next step.

Be careful, and make sure you have the products needed, if for some reason you have used them, then you will need to make more, providing you still have the needed ingredients to do so.

How to exclude sheds from being harvested when HARVEST ALL button is used in the Facility Manager.

It is now possible to exclude sheds when you use the Harvest All. First click to change your farm name. Then click the checkbox to set the farm to a quest farm. This farm will be ignored when the harvest all button is used. quest.JPG

Note: if you don't own any of the harvest all tools, (Animal Harvesters) then this option is not available to you

Only you will be able to use the mobile sprinklers to irrigate or water your Quest or Private farms. SN's, neighbours or anyone visiting can not do those farms. However the flowers on a Quest farm can be watered using the watering can.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:03 AM.
