  • I do not have the LAYOUT MODE your talking about, I still have the move and rotate above the cursor.  Is there something I need to do first to get this ?


    Thank you,

    Looks so exciting!

    and will it also have cooperatives?

    Bruce from the Official Announcement: "Update: 09.08.2016 - Let's Redesign the Farm!".

    That is if nothing happens and it has to be delayed, cause sometimes these updates don't always go as planned.

    Good luck.

    **Edit**

    I just wanted to edit my post and add this info as well about the discussion thread on the EN forum where info & questions are being posted in reference to the update that is scheduled for tomorrow.

    The test server will not start tomorrow just yet :) More news on how to access it soon!
  • Quick question!

    If the building is busy, or if the building has done producing but I have not harvest it yet, then I decide to go to Lay Out mode, then I decide that I want to store my busy building in the temporary storage area, will I lose my production?? Like, will I lose my eggs in the busy Chicken Coop? That make sense??

    Oh my goodness! It's exactly what we need, and the test server will most likely help those of us that are over-curious because we get to see what's coming up before it's implemented, and may actually have an effect on how it'll pan out!

    I'd like to give some feedback on update info threads by the way:
    Thank you so much for posting them always very close to the updates. I very much appreciate also the threads that inform us that something is coming but will be announced at a later date: thus I never have to fear that the game is forgotten if no updates come for a longer while.
    I love the updates close to the actual patch day because it gives less time to be all anxious and hyped about it, I basically get to see what's coming and play it almost right away. ^-^

    Thanks for all the hard work, keep it up, the game seems to be doing great and I'm having fun!

    Concerning the test server for the new big things  very clear warning if you buy gold you will lose it you will lose farm and money as they will be wiping the server clean. How is this a good thing I am scared should I use my gold before I lose it  as the customer service here is non existent. I was looking forward to something new now I am unsure how to proceed maybe I should just stay away awhile as I dont think I want to be part of something that can make me lose everything.

    Love the layout update if it works.  Last week I got so frustrated moving stuff on my farm, I just put it back the way it was.
    I think I will past on the test server,

    TIP- take screenshots before any rearranging.
     


  • Latten,

    Do we have a choice of playing on the test server tomorrow? 
    What might happen to our existing farm dollars and existing gold in our accounts? I understand buying gold tomorrow is not wise but is our existing $$/gold safe?


    Thanks,

    What if we don't want to use the test server...do we have a choice because I don't want to lose my farm & all the hard work & gold I have put into it if GGS is just going to go & wipe everything on the new server.

    Sorry I just don't understand all this...or is the new server something you will have to login onto like Au1 & then you start a new farm all over again.

    As usual there is not enough information given

    The test server is completely separate to the current live servers, meaning that whatever you do on this test instance, stays on this test instance and has no effect whatsoever on your existing farm. 

    It's like creating a new farm on another server - there is no connection between the two, apart from the user playing. ;)

    Buying gold for your farm is still fine, even after the update. 

    We will be opening another server in the near future - a server solely installed for testing purposes. On this server, you will have a separate account - if you choose to participate. This account is completely independent from your existing account, changes applied to this farm have no effect on your existing environment, progress or gold count. 
    What if we don't want to use the test server...do we have a choice because I don't want to lose my farm & all the hard work & gold I have put into it if GGS is just going to go & wipe everything on the new server.
    Yeps, you can choose to participate or let the offer slide.
    We would appreciate if some of you took their time to test all the new things, though, and rest assured, your farm is safe, no matter your choice.

  • "You can access your local inventory from the storage area as well, and can transfer decorations if needed."

    Does it mean transferring decorations between our 3 farms?

    That is what I would like to know, as I would like to have themed farms if possible.

    I was wondering the same thing.  I think it will be nice if there were coops in the test server so we can be with our team mates who will be participating in it.

    Is there any info on at what time the update will come or did it get delayed? ;o
    I'm wondering if it's smart to do missions or not since it seems like the update didn't hit yet - wouldn't want to time things badly and be midway through a mission when the servers go down. =3

    I don't believe we have been updated as the racing farmer is the same as early this a.m.  

    I think the update is bug fixes and the introduction to redesigning the farm, plus the new racing season.

  • Does this mean that we play on two farms simultaneously?
