Default New Release -- April 28th, 2011

[Please see additional notes and fixes 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. Mother's Day items.

2. Product Adjustments:

- Tripled production in Cinnamon Factory
- Cheese production is now twice as fast, 2 hours instead of 4, this is like duplicating production if you have enough milk
- Salt received as gift now comes in batches of 200 instead of 100

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

4. Friend Activity Panel: Right below the game screen there is a panel that shows you how your friends are helping you, like who: sent you regular/farm cash gifts, sent you ingredients, worked at your facilities, worked at your farm, sold you products, watered your flowers, etc.

5. Sell All Selected Products in Market: Each product in the market window will have a check box in the upper left corner (except when using the Non-Ingredients filter). Also, there is a 'Sell Selected' button below the filter selector (top-right) that will allow you to sell all selected (checked) products in one click.

The check box state is remembered from session to session so if you have a set of products that you always sell, you just need to check those products only once.

Once a product is selected it will show as selected on all the filters.

6. Harvest-Plow Combine 5 x 5 (FC): If you already own the Harvester 5 x 5 and the Plower 5 x 5, then you can buy this new Harvest-Plow Combine to harvest and plow 25 fields at once.

If You own this tool and someone hires you for multiple jobs including harvest and plow, you will be able to use this tool as well.

7. Harvest Storage Increased: This time we increased the storage by 50% so you should be able to play longer time before your storage get's full again.

8. Pool Bar (FC): Produce Cocktails. You can produce Peach Liqueur in the Distillery.

Apple Martini
Bloody Mary
Sex on the Beach
Mojito
Pina Colada
Bourbon Highball
Bellini
Sangria

9. Sports Accesories Factory (coins): Produce Sports Accesories. The Maple tree can now be chopped, then the logs used in the Sawmill to produce the Maple Lumber Pile. You need the Maple Lumber Pile to produce some sports accesories and, in the future, some fine musical instruments.

Foil
Volleyball Ball
Flat Bow and Arrows
Bowling Pin
Swimming Goggles
Ping Pong Racket
Shuttlecocks
Basket

10. Sports Arena (coins): This is a Service Facility that can be stocked with the products below:

Hotdog
French Fries
Cheese Burger
Orange Soda
Farmerade
Foil
Bowling Pins
Flat Bow and Arrows
Ping Pong Racket
Basket

11. Glass Factory, School-Office Supplies Factory and Dance Club: Coming Tomorrow

We are also considering when a Hire Multiple is used for the employee to tele-transport always, so you don't have to wait for the harvest progress bars to finish in order to start plowing.

On the next release we will make several improvements to the gifting system and provide the capability for specific products and crops leveling, each product and crop will have 5 or 10 different levels, based on the total amounts of products done or crops harvested. The level will be used in the future to grant you different benefits.

Enjoy!

Thanks

--Raul


1. Launched the Glass Factory, Office/School Supply Factory and Dance Club Service Facility

2. When you are hired the avatar will jump (not walk) much more frequently now, so if you were hired with the Hire Multiple option for harvest and plow you will have to wait much less to start plowing

3. Combine 5 x 5 added to the plow vertical tool bar. In future releases we will find a way to include the 5x5 tools as well, or may be just replace the 4x4 tools with the 5x5 versions automatically if user owns them

4. We added a clarification note when selling selected items in market: "Note: When you select a product, all its variations (regular, large and gift) will be selected and sold as well"

5. Myspace crops and products disappearing from storage is now fixed

6. Fuel tanks credits given to users which may have lost fuel with the latest update

7. The cursor for the Plower 5 x 5 now have the correct size

8. The Graphic Help (?) for both Windmills now shows correct ingredient quantities for wheat

9. When hired and using the Combine tool, sometimes other people present on the same farm were seeing random uncompleted fields and the progress bar never went away
