Pampered Chef: Who plays Farmtown?

    Oh dear...Farm Town addicts have got a problem tonight! It is messing up and no one can get on! Oh geez...what are we gonna do??? At least I have watermelons and strawberries which will hold till tomorrow!

    Sarah...loved you getting those harvested. I just wish they would let us "hire" people to plow too! LOL!

    The initial set up of my "crop circles" took about 4 hours... I just plowed it all then started "deleting" the ones I wanted gone... I use unplowed land to spell everything out so I don't have to redo it. I changed it a couple of times before I got to 24 x 24 farm land. Now I am done reorganizing. I do a section of 1-day crops, 2-day crops, 3-day crops, then outline my letters in pumpkins (4-day crop).

    I know - once you get to level 25 it feels like it takes F*O*R*E*V*E*R to get to the next level. There are more points between level 29 and 30 than there are in the first 15 levles of the entire game. add me - Sharon Blanchard - or we2blanchards@yahoo.com My farm is Henny Penny Acres and I'm Clemintine Darlin!

    OK. I've learned a lot about F from this post. For one, I didn't know about the crops lasting. Two, uh, I already forgot! I did learn from someone harvesting my crops that you could 'hide' your trees to make it easier to harvest!

    Anyway, I'm Annabelle, and my farm is "Quilter's Eden". Would love to be your neighbor!

    Here's another tip that I loved learning:

    In addition to clicking "hide tree", you can click on the wrench and de-select "show trees", that way you can harvest someone's farm w/o accidently doing their trees when they've told you to leave them alone. It also helps when the trees are blocking a lot of the crops. It's a lot faster than clicking "hide tree" on each one. :D

    Also if you are harvesting someone's farm and you want to click on someone (to hire them or add them to your buddy list or something), just click on the walk symbol to drop the harvest tool. (I have a friend who was on level 30 and didn't know this, so I thought I'd share it just in case there's anyone else who didn't know.)

    Did you see all the new changes?! Check out each section of the store! Love the options! I wish we could have bigger farms to fit all the things that we could do with all of them! I just planted some flowers and changed my hairdo! :D

    You can "buy" a bigger farm as you move up in levels. You go to I think the real estate office (when you click on map).

    You have to be up in the levels though and it costs like $20,000 for the first upgrade.

    I've upgraded as many levels as I can though....I'm out of options now. ;) It would be cool if we could buy a second plot of land to connect to our farms. One for the homestead and one for the crops. :)

    You guys got me started on this game Friday and I was almost late getting my stuff together for a party on Sat. afternoon. I'm hooked.

    Can someone tell me about fruit trees? Some people don't like them picked right away. Is time on FT the same as real time? Do animals destroy crops if left loose?

    You should read the help & rules at the top tab of the game. It'll help a lot. But to answer your questions:

    Fruit trees don't go to waste/expire, so some people like to keep them w/ fruit on it to add color to their farm. Sometimes I leave mine till a big group is all ready at the same time. It's more fun to harvest trees when there's a row of them ready at the same time. A FT day is 20 hours, so keep that in mind when you plant your day crops. My understanding of the rules was that the animals currently won't eat your crops. They will look like they are eating, but that's just an option in their design functions. I try to pen in my animals just in case, because someone said they heard people complaining about their crops getting eaten. Now, sometimes there are glitches in the game and I'll swear I plowed and planted a whole field. Then I'll go back later and a patch is missing. So maybe the people thought it was the animals, when really it was the game.

    I just reached level 27. Anyone know the # that it is that you hit to reach the next level? I know when I buy things, it raises my points. Does buying the more expensive seeds also do the same? I know we get 1 pt for plowing and 2 for planting, so right now I'm doing grapes (if I know I'm going to be able to be on later to harvest) because that means I'm turning over crops and earning more points in a day. But if the price of the crop adds to our points, maybe I need to rethink that strategy?

    there is no increase in points for various crops.
    you do get points for "tending" your neighbors farms...

    I don't remember the points needed to reach 28... (45000 comes to mind)

    I checked last night...it is 45000! I am over 40000 now but still have a ways! I don't want to spend all the extra time online to do grapes. The new flowers give you 2 XP (which is what you need to get to the next level) for planting them...

    I've decided not to introduce it to him while the weather is nice. I'm old school, and I think he shouldn't be sitting in front of the computer when he can be outdoors playing. He has tooooo much pent up energy to just be sitting!

    I'm so glad this thread was started. I just started my farm about a week ago and I had asked some of my family members to get on to be my neighbors and they thought I was crazy. Now it's nice to know that I have PC family that I can request as neigbors. Be on the look out for me my name is Venus Alarcon and my farm is Venus's Farm. This is so addicting and fun. The first night I started I went to sleep and that's all I dreamed about that night. Haha!
