    Question -- if we upgrade a building or field, does the new appearance stay with it?

  • As I expected.  Without a lot of gold spending, you'll never have your whole farm in one theme. :(  Disappointing again, GGS.

    No, you can change it back in the upgrade window.

    No, I meant, if I upgrade the doghouse, for example, will the new upgrade have the new appearance as well.

    Oh, I see what you mean. Yes, I think it will stay if you upgrade, since the appearance stays in your inventory if not in use.

    Thanks.  Not that it matters as the doghouse needs gold to update.  Still, in case I win the lottery ... :)

    I got them too, one at the top with the other recent msg's and the second burried somewhere down.. timed 0:00pm for some reason.

    Very much like the new rustic appearances, already got one for piggies and cows, also for one apple orchard but that one is not really different enough so i dont think i'll keep it or buy more rustic apples.

    About the cow one: I quite like that she has loads more space, but she looks terribly lonely, any chance the GGS graphic artists could add some friends for her?

     Also poor miss Piggy, only 1babypig? Really like the open look but if it's possible can we get another pig "appearance" where miss piggy has the usual 9-11 babypigs? Or is GGS adding new recipes that involve bacon......?  >:)   :o

    - Once you own all expansions for a farm, access to the next farm is unlocked.

    What does this mean?

    I think it's for those who don't have all three basic farms yet. For example if you have only main farm, and bought all expansions, then you can already buy the gourmet, irrelevant of your level. Same for flower farm once you bought all gourmet land.
     you too up at 3:30am aussie time.  o:)  ahem. *cough*. Shhhhh.

  • GGS should keep the old themed buildings with the bonuses. Especially the themed houses that give one extra worker.

    I like this update. Ofcourse i'd like to have all rustic buildings, but i don't ever have enough gold.



  • The ones available on my farm are fairly expensive.  Some for gold (favourites deal) and some for farm cash.
    When did you get yours? I do not have the new appearance system yet that I can find.

  • I used to consider myself somewhat intelligent; that is, until I started playing this game. I just realized that the big numbers 07.06 actually means June 07, 2016 (and not July 06, 2016). So, when does this change take place in the US, and will it be found under the hard hat tab (build).

  • The update was made earlier today.  I've forgotten the time. :/   If you want to change a pigsty to rustic from whatever normal is, click the pigsty and the update icon on the menu ring.  At the top of the page that opens are two tabs, an up arrow and a paint can.  The paint can is the one that changes the appearance of your pigsty.  Pigs cost 400,000 farm dollars each.

  • Be very careful the appearance buy is not limited to 1 per item.  My mouse doubled clicked when I went to do my second barn and now I have 3 of the new barn skins and only 2 barns to use them on.  Thankfully it was not a gold buy item but I would still like that 1,200,000 farm dollars back! 


    GG you need to look at this it shouldn't let you buy more than what you have of the building on your farm especially on the buildings that have a limit of 1 or 2

    The news picture shows a floating sheep and a paint brush. 
    >:)  different colour inflatable sheep are a coming  >:)   Well I have done rustic farm,dollars only  but don't want GGS to bring out 50 different looks for farms.That won't keep me interested , earning money so farm can look different each week.

    thanks for the heads up monica!  i've accidentally purchased a couple things on big farm, its not a good feeling!!
  • it would be cool if they "unlocked" in the decoration collection after you buy them.


    I like to zoom in and look at them.


    ok...I am now officially a Big Farm nerd

    So if you put one of these new appearance thingies on a building, then you upgrade the building, do you lose the appearance and have to buy another one for the upgrade? Or does the appearance get upgraded too? Or does the appearance not change as you upgrade a building?
  • shazamd (US1)shazamd (US1) US1 Posts: 755
    Appearance does not change.
  • It's not a mistake. It is written in the official announcement :smile:

    We'll see if there's something we can do about the lonely cow :) I passed the question on to the artists. Glad you all seem to like the appearances, I'm super happy they finally made it in personally :D


  • @CM Latten  I have a question - Will the rewards from the Wheel of fortune be permanent? Specifically the houses, chicken coop? I mean each time the Wheel appears we can win them?

    It appears to me that the new rustic appearance stays the same no matter what level the building.  You *should* only have to buy it once per building.  The best thing about it so far is it will hide those nasty, nasty flags at the top level!  I may actually upgrade more things now. :)
