Default New Release -- May 27th, 2011

We just adjusted the limits for the Ingredients and Belt Bonuses Help. You can now post 5 times in a 12 hours period and accumulate up to 1,000,000 in coins in that period. We expect less posts and bigger chances of getting more value this way. Belt bonuses and ingredient requests limits remains separate as they are now.

Notice that the additional bonus you may get by posting to your friends walls when you reach new belts and degrees is really not that significant as they are only a one time bonus, the most important benefit is the new increased chances you get for getting additional products every time you or an employee harvest in your farm, this is similar to benefits offered by a manure spreader but there is no Farm Cash involved, only your efforts in getting belts and Dan degrees.

See other Post-Launch Updates at the bottom of this post.

Hi There,

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

1. New Gifts and Items in lower levels:

-10 Trees added to the Gift section, some with different sizes to create better landscapes. The big pine can be chopped.
-18 vehicles now have a view in the opposite direction in the Motion Section.
-Blueberry,Pineapple,Grapes,Peas,Onion and Raspberry buckets, 4 Wild Grass (small and large), Milk Keg, Wooden Flower Bed in the Farming section.
-3 Farmer Markets and a Rabbit Hutch (to store your bunnies) in the Buildings section.
-Red Brick Fences in the Fences section.
-Some gifts were moved to the Store.

2. Avatar clothes: Each sex have 6 different types of clothes (including the default overall), each type has 3 different color versions. Here are the clothes available:

-Overall, Street, Cowboy (Coins)
-Overall-Pro, Casual, Tuxedo/Dress (FC)

Once you buy FarmCash clothes you unlock them forever so you can take it off and on anytime, but It doesn't go to storage.

3. Seeder 5 x 5 (FC): If you already own the Seeder 4 x 4, then you can buy this new seeder to plant up to 25 fields at a time.

4. Store All gifts in one click: The Store All button in the gift window allows you to store all storable items at once. Notice that it will only store animals in the animals buildings located in the current selected farm.

5. Flower Harvester 8 x 8 (FC): If you already own the Flower Harvester 8 x 4, then you can buy this new Flower Harvester to harvest up to 64 flowers.

6. Request for Help in your Service Facilities: If you click the 'Get More Clients!' button in your service facilities (What's in Stock section) your friends will be able to refer clients to your service facilities so you can Cashout more coins faster and restock more often. The rules and benefits for you and your friends are the same as in the regular facilities.

7. Belt Ranks in Crops, Trees and Flowers (To be launched sometime next week): You can now achieve different Belts Ranks (like in Judo) on every product in those categories. The Belts have different colors for each Rank.

A new Belt for a product can be achieved by harvesting that product a number of times.

The current Belt achieved for a product is shown in the store. If you mouse over the product icon you will see how many harvests are required to reach the next Belt.

Every time you or an employee harvest in your farm the counter for the harvested product is incremented by one. ***The employee counters are not incremented***.

When you reach a new Belt there will be more chances that in future harvests for that product you get an extra product box. Below are the available Belts and the benefits you get:

White Belt - No extra box
Yellow Belt - 5% chances for an extra box
Orange Belt - 10% chances for an extra box
Green Belt - 16% chances for an extra box
Blue Belt - 22% chances for an extra box
Brown Belt - 29% chances for an extra box
Black Belt - 36% chances for an extra box

For example, when you reach the Black Belt for Wheat, from that point on when you harvest wheat there will be a 36% chance of getting an extra box of Wheat.

In the future you as a farmer will have a Belt as well based on how many belts of a specific color you have, and there will be even more chances of getting extra product boxes when harvesting.

Also in the future you will be able to reach Belts for fish, animals and facility products.

8. Home Supply Factory (Coins): Produce Home Supplies. You can produce Chandelier Shades in the Glass Factory.

Sink and Faucet Set
Shower Frame
Medicine Cabinet
Curtains
Tool Set
Candle Chandelier
Vanity with Mirror
Ironing Board

9. Baby Foods Factory (FC): Produce Baby Foods.

Sweet Potato Puree
Baby Rice Cereal
Chicken Noodle Puree
Fruit Mix Puree
Veggie Mix Puree
Apple-Squash Oatmeal
Formula
Macaroni-Beef Veggies

10. Home Depot Store (Coins): This is a Service Facility that can be stocked with the products below:

Wallpaper
Porcelain Tile Set
Table with Stools
Shower Frame
Medicine Cabinet
Curtains
Candle Chandelier
Vanity with Mirror
Tool Set

11. Bridal Shop (FC): This is a Service Facility that can be stocked with the products below:

Wedding dress
Tie Set
Red Roses Bouquet
White Roses Bouquet
Boutonniere and Corsage
Ring
Earrings
Necklace

12: Small Fixes/Improvements:
- The 'Go Home' button now only ask for confirmation when you are on a farm
- When you buy an item that is required by a second item, you don't need to refresh the game to by that second item.

Farm 10 and new levels coming in the next release.

Enjoy!

Thanks

--Raul

Post-Launch Updates:

We just launched the Belt ranking for crops, trees and flowers. Also, we fixed these bugs:

- Request as gift should work as expected, should not appear as a request for ingredients anymore
- Gifts received this way can now be place on farms and deleted from Gift Box
- You can now send All Tuscan Trees, Tree with Red Ribbon and a couple of implements like the Hole Driller using Farmer and Facebook Friend list tabs
- Store All button now work with empty buildings
- Placing Big Pines from Gift Box into farms now don’t chop the Pine automatically, instead it appears fully grown ready to chop

Default New Items

YAY !! Thank you for the new goodies. I thought something funny was going on when a neighbour requested facility items through mine when he was working them. This is great! My thanks to everyone involved! I'm glad Tom has been released, I missed him at the market this morning.
