    So when is this "magic button" on the the harvest/plant/feed ring supposed to occur?  I hope it won't cost gold to use.  If so, then is there a way to delete the button so as not to get in the way during fast pace missions?  I don't want to be accidentally using up my gold.  Thank you!

    Normally, skipping production to save time costs 1 gold every 90 seconds, so a corn field costs 4 gold or 3 if you wait 30 seconds.  
    If it takes 3 seconds to harvest each building, it should cost 0.03 gold per harvest rounded up or 300 dollars.  It shouldn't cost 240 times more unless you have only a few seconds remaining to earn a large reward like a gold mystery box or better.  
  • What a potential disaster. Things pop out of the ground with your plants and cover the button and now you are flying blind if you're in a hurry like a mission to plant. Nope. Cure for this is to never buy gold again so you don't accidentally get charged. Ha! I don't trust them enough to buy it. Good thing I like the people I play with or I'd be gone. I actually find myself scarce these days from my farm. I used to sit on it all day, but now it's a good day for the farm if I'm there an hour. Game is just ruined by greed and corruption. Hope we can hide this idiocy so we don't hit it by accident because we have other crap coming up from the ground.

    I have a question regarding how automatic repeat harvest works.

    If there is a milk (for instance) project running, and I set my cowsheds to one repeat harvest before going to sleep, does it do the first harvest and thus add to the project while I am offline, or does it catch up all the harvests only after I get back online?

    We also have a bug that goes with the repeat harvester, if players have more than around 2,000,000,000 cash there will be this 'Product is missing' text. It is a display error only and players should still be able to use the new feature. We will work on this problem for the next update, long story short this issue only happens to people who are rich.
    @WascallyWabbit

    Hey Wabbit, think maybe they can fix this one too?

    @Rusty Farmer (AU1) The answer to your question is:

    "The repeat harvester works in real time, once your harvest is ready it harvests and adds a new one. Should mean it adds points for events that require collecting/harvesting as well"

    We also have a bug that goes with the repeat harvester, if players have more than around 2,000,000,000 cash there will be this 'Product is missing' text. It is a display error only and players should still be able to use the new feature. We will work on this problem for the next update, long story short this issue only happens to people who are rich.

    @Southern (US1) The techy elves say they have a bug ticket for that one too, thank you :)

    Wascally I know you are just the messenger and No worries im not Elmer J Fudd!! lol But why do an update with bugs? Why not just fix them first as this is really an update that not a lot of the player base has asked for ?  Thank you Wascally for putting up with all our questions, complaints and being the go between of the player base and the Team! You do a fantastic Job!

    Integer.MAX_VALUE = 2147483647 
    If you have more money than this, it will overflow, causing the calculation for the repeat harvester to receive a negative value.

    LOL Thank you for your reply and explanation! I hope that you are able to get all the issues under control (Fixed) before tomorrows release.

    Ermmm! so now we have a fix for the fix for the original error?  

    Why on earth are these things not thoroughly tested before they go live?  Forget all this nonsense that they are - they quite clearly are not - if they were we wouldn't keep needing fixes!

    The original fix was like putting a sticky plaster on a broken leg.

    I know we as players seem to complain a lot, but these errors are one of the, if not the main reason why.  We are happy to live without new features - I promise I am not speaking as one little voice here, in order for you to get everything working as it should.

    The list so far this year (and just the ones I can remember in a couple of minutes) the vanishing double xp, the edge plant, the wrong horse tournament, the boat asking for the wrong products, the deep sea fishing problem, the automated rewards not being as they should be, the village fair, the fix for the village fair, even the football world cup has errors at the start and the ever worsening lag...................... I know there are lots more.  

    I dont know how many times we have to ask - get things fixed before releasing yet another new feature that will have bugs - they all do,  Test things thoroughly prior to go live.

    I know I am wasting my time asking - its been asked so many times before and by so many others - what would it take to finally get through as right now I am right out of ideas.
    I so agree. And, you're right, I don't think anything will change, so I'm wasting my time, too. To an outside observer, this seems to be the place where things are tested before being applied elsewhere, or scrapped.

    Both profiles have the same name.  I think the first one should be at least changed to Oktoberfest Tessa Townsend.





    The wheel is showing village fair items when it is not running, animations dont work and it is showing German, the first language in Big Farms list of languages.   
    It did give village fair boosters and speed fertilizer.

    I posted here because the problem came after the Repeat harvester update.  
    How do I find the existing topics that may be a few months old?

    I speculate that the cost in gold of a repeat will be a portion of how much to would be to do a speed up. I suspect it could be as much as 50% but hope it will be lower...much lower. ;)

    If it is related to the duration of the production, expect over 100% of the skip cost.

    I'm sure they're going to price it to the point that only a select few will want (or afford) to use it.

    They can't seem to understand that getting 10,000 people to use something at 10 gold each is more profitable than 100 people paying 500 gold each.

    But we'll see. Looks like they're going to try patching it in again in about 30 minutes.

    First thing I notice is that the patch locked the fish market.

    If your fish market is locked, go to the Flower Farm and click on the Fish Market in front of the docks to unlock it.

    And the Harvester itself appears to be pretty reasonably priced. I'm impressed.

  • Was there suppose to be something we get for the hot fix being done during the wwe?
    When I got back on it had an error message about comp.

  • Price to repeat seems based on production type rather than actual item. Bakery and Flowershop are 100 gold to repeat, fields/stables 10 gold and orchards 50 gold.

    Some items are cheaper to skip than repeat (bakery, flowershop)
