Default New Release -- January 16th, 2020

See Known Issues, More Information and Post Release Updates at the end of this post. Last changes released on January 31st, 11:20PM.

Hi There,

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

1. 8 new Valentine Items: 7 at the top of the Valentines category in the Store and 1 at the bottom.

2. 25 New Levels: 25 new items in the Winter, Trees, Buildings, Farm Decor, Motion and 'Other' categories in the Store.

3. 50 x 50 farm expansion for Farms 11 to 20: Please note that these expansions are for the *original farms* 11 to 20. If you have moved your farms around using the Farm Selector Manager then you will need to find your original farms from 11 to 20 to expand them. You cannot expand a farm just because it is sitting in one of those locations in your Farm Selector.

4. 7 Overhead Crane tools: Each matching the colors of existing ships, they provide the following benefits:

a) Each crane matching the color of another farmers ship waiting on your Seaport will allow you to load that particular ship in 1 click

b) If you own all the cranes this will activate the 'Load All' button at the top of your Seaport Screen to load *all* the ships at your Seaport 1 click

c) After you dispatch a ship, if it gets stuck at a port for more than X minutes and you also own the matching color crane for that ship, you will be able to load the ship yourself a certain amount of times depending on the ship color:

Blue Ship ---> Self Load up to 1 port after being stuck for 60 mins
Orange Ship -> Self Load up to 2 ports after being stuck for 50 mins
Green Ship --> Self Load up to 3 ports after being stuck for 40 mins
Purple Ship -> Self Load up to 4 ports after being stuck for 30 mins
Brown Ship --> Self Load up to 5 ports after being stuck for 20 mins
Pink Ship ---> Self Load up to 6 ports after being stuck for 10 mins
Yellow Ship -> Self Load up to 7 ports any time you want

Note: As with the Skip button, the self Load button do not work on the last port. Also, to receive those benefits you have to add all the Cranes to your Item Storage.

5. Neighbourhoods Chains Contest Scoring Change: Before this change, the score of a neighborhood is computed by adding all the XP points you earn plus all the XP points that your neighbours earn working the facilities in the contest. We feel that this method is not well balanced as it put too much importance on your neighbours effort and too little on your own individual effort. With this update we changed the way the neighbourhood score is computed as follows:

a) Each XP your neighbour earn contributes 1 point, no change here
b) Each XP you earn, instead of contributing just 1 point, will contribute as many points as the number of neighbours you have participating in the contest

For example, if you have 100 neighbours in the contest and each of them earn 1 XP, then your neighborhood score will be 1 * 100 = 100 points. Then if you earn 1 XP yourself, this will add 1 * 100 = 100 points to your neighborhood score for a total score of 200. This basically makes your individual effort as important as the total combined effort of all your neighbours in the contest.

If you mouse over your total neighborhood score at the bottom of the screen, you will see a tooltip with two lines, one showing your individual contribution and another one showing the combined contribution of all your neighbours.
