Facebook: Farmtown Tips/Tutorial

Crops:
Growing day = 20 hours
1 day crop = 20 hours; so 10% = 2 hours; 1% = 12 minutes (potato, strawberry)
2 day crop = 40 hours; so 10% = 4 hours; 1% = 24 minutes (rice, tomato, wheat)
3 day crop = 60 hours; so 10% = 6 hours; 1% = 36 minutes (sunflower, coffee, corn)

Crops go bad in approximately the same amount of time that they take to grow.
e.g. 1 day crop like potatoes take 1 day to go to waste.
Crops do not go bad in storage once harvested.

Fruit on trees do not go bad.

Cleaning up Points:
You get 6 points for the first 50 visits you make to tend your neighbors each day; every visit after 50 in any day gets you only 1 experience point. You should be back in business tomorrow

hello, I am level 27 in farmtown, everytime I go to the Marketplace people want to know how many levels are there? at what level did I get all my llamas? I dont think the user guide is adequate in answering these questions. It is very nebulous in this area. I had to go online to find out there are 34 levels with no chance to expand the farm again, this is kind of nonproductive achieving wise, if you are able to obtain these higher levels why is there no reward to expand the farm?

rosi said...

I WOULD also like to know how people stack there plots on purpose, people have told me to use explorer to stack my tiles but i dont know what that means

Anonymous said...

Rosi, there is a Youtube vidio that will show you how to stack the plots. I don't have the link right now, but it is pretty easy to find.

WanWan said...

thanks.. its great tips...

Another Anonymous said...

I would like to know at what level will I unlock the ability to buy:
Pear, Banana, Plum, Peach, Cherry, Mango, Coconut, and Palm trees.

I am at level 25 and still cannot purchase any of these trees.

Have your friends gift them to you =)

Over lapping plow fields,

1st click the plow button then make sure the plow thing is high lighted green on your farm, then right click your mouse then left click the mouse to put plow where ever you want it.
*(It has to be highlighted green tho for it to work)

hope this helps you x

I am at level 20 and I want to make my farm bigger (18X18) but the real estate office says (Locked) when I am trying to upgrade to 18X18

I was locked out yesterday for my upgrade at level 23. I clicked on it anyway and it worked.

It doesnt work when I click on it even though it says locked.

I am sending gifts to people but when they accept them, the gifts are not in their gift boxes. The gifts are lost. They are accepting them correctly and one at a time. This happened to more than one person I have sent gifts to. Is there something wrong with my account? Why are the gifts from me not working for people but gifts from other people are?

Anonymous said...

I would like to know why the over lapping option is unavailable. From my understanding, the people behind FT were going to rework the program to do away with stacking, but that the overlapping option would still be available. It really makes it difficult to do any sort of design without being able to overlap my crops. I like all the new changes, but c'mon. This just kinda sucks.

potsie said...

So are they going to make it actually illegal to have your fields overlapped, so I have to undo them?

Anonymous said...

FT did make it so you cant overlap like before, that was just a glitch in the system and led to many people planting way too much. However, if you look in the top right of the screen, there is a picture of a wrench. If you click it, you can see there is an option of erasing the space between plots. Choose that and you can now plow very close together. Not quite that of overlapping, but better than nothing. Hope this helps... happy farming.

What is there to do after level 25

Another Anonymous said...

there are more things for you to unlock after level 25

Anonymous said...

there should be setting tab on the top right? click it and then something like remove spaces between fields, make sure thats clicked and you can put fields like right next to eachother with no gaps!
hope this helps :)

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking we need tractors and storage buildings next!!! Something to plow those fields faster and be able to store stuff we dont wanna use from time to time instead of having to sell it for very little money! =)

I haven't been able to get on Farm Town, but my cousin has. This is disturbing. I think my farm will be "gone to waste" when I get back up.

Anonymous said...

I actually HAVE had grapes go to waste in storage...even though this says they won't...don't forget to sell!
Also...FT is having some glitches,and some of the people in Florida and Texas are not able to log on...it is because of the server.

Don't know the answer to your second question though.

If you don't want people harvesting your trees even when you've asked them not to, all you have to do is, click on them and click IGNORE ;) They disappear and your crops can't be harvested!

See u at FT!

To answer this question--Can you find a farm-town player even she/he is not your friend?

You can simply add them to your buddylist, if you want to find them again in the game. The other person will have to accept though, it'll tell you if they did or didn't ;)

See you on FT!

Too bad Farm town doesn't work like MY Farm, you don't have to click 50 times to plow or harvest and there is no stupid Avatar to get in the way or have to wait on. Now we can't get on either one, check back in a couple of days, what kind of answer is that - get it fixed. thanks, we're hooked.

I am willing to bet that the servers got overwhelmed after they released all those new items in the last couple of days. There are also so many users now....up from about 5 million a month or so ago to over 8 million now. I don't think the developers ever imagined it would take off like this. It was probably a crash looking for a place to happen. I just hope that it comes back sometime....

Ok anything but the farm... please not the farm. That is like taking a beer from a bum

Default 6/8/2009 - FarmTown Unavailable
Hi,

FarmTown is currently unavailable. We are researching this at the moment. Bear with us while we try to restore access.

Thanks.

Update: The issue seems to have been caused by a glitch in the communication between FarmTown servers and Facebook.

FarmTown access will be restored as soon as these issues are solved.

We will be extending the 'Ready to Harvest' period so that crops do not go to waste due to this downtime.

Update - 12:50 AM EDT: ETA for FT to be back online is at 1 hour.

I read on Yahoo answers that it is a problem between facebook and farmtown connections and that it WILL be back on. I also read that they will extend the growing/dying time so that crops won't go bad, but not sure who wrote that part so not sure if it's true.

"I can't type to anyone one farm town. How can I fix this?"

Two things I know of that can cause that:

First, you can't use the chat feature in full-screen mode, for some reason.

Second, if you have unread facebook chat messages (the ones at the bottom of the screen) it disables farm-town chat. Again, no idea why.
