    Hmmm, George and "candyman" gone after update. Already "cleared all" and refressed game..... They didn't came back.  Where are they GGS???? 
    Edit: All ok, Cleared caches again and refressed again, after a while they just appeared from somewhere.... :smiley:

    Where did the map go? Game starts from main farm now.Is this a bug or its gone for good ? Already cleared cache etc

    Also the parking lot trucks loads very slow,like few seconds after everything else loads.I thought they are all gone at first.... 

    EDIT:How strange , several co-op members too do not have map,one of them from couple of months
    @Tigrain (BG1) The game is suppose to start from the main farm now instead of the map. You can still access the map by using the next harvest panel located on the right side of the screen.

    Edit to add: Its normal that some players are getting in the game thru the map & others are going directly to the main farm. If anything changes, we'll let you guys know. :)

    snow still here after "update" and can search for candies again
    The team is aware that some players still have snow on their farms & they're looking into it. :)

    Everyone should be able to find all the candies now without getting an error code.

    Still snow on my farm but I can find the 'extra' candies.
    I also have another bug - I am clearing a new block on my Flower farm but the action is not showing in the Upgrade window on the other farms. See below

  • I m lovin the candy hunting..but some candies r very well hidden..:)
  • Hello, excuse my intrusion.

    I'm from the Hispanic server. They noticed some change with the present update in the behavior of the silo and composter with respect to the toolboxes. Before they were 5 and 3 respectively, but now only 1.

    Thanks in advance and greetings to this community

    Hey @aleydy (HIS1) the amount of tool drops have been re-balanced and reduced according to every other building in the game. The prices for buying them were reduced as well from 990 gold to 390 gold. The amount of tools had to be adapted to the new situation in the game.

    Thanks for the reply @CuddlyFoxes, it makes me that the rebalance is only noticed against the players, it is a very personal opinion, since I have noticed that each tool leaves approximately every 60 harvests, using the fast feed, there it is not going to Have a change, only in buildings that were beneficial ?, is just a suggestion, but should evaluate.

    Finally, let's hope it is the beginning of finding out how we are going to achieve almost 100 tools that are occupied per day to keep the machines productive.

    Sorry if you do not understand, but my English is void.

    Regards!!!

    It seems to Me that all the events are just for the people who have finished their Farms or are almost done with them, Since I am Level 52 and still got a lot of work to do on My Farms, I can never finish them and get the rewards, and I refuse to buy Gold to be able to finish them as well, So My only option is do not bother with the Events until My Farms are done which will take yrs probably, or just do not bother with them ever.

    I had the same complaint when I was at your level but now I am finishing level five events with no problem. Just keep building your farm and you will get there.  As for the temp farms, The best advice I got was not to start one until you can afford to spend about 10 mil on it. And I still only get part way into chapter two. I just do them for the seeds.  Another good piece of advice is to pick the temp farm you love and just do that one.  You can earn enough to keep the ship going until that farm comes back around.  Then you are not constantly building a temp farm and can concentrate on building your full time farms.  I do the Viking/northern lights/ festive farm because it comes around the most, but many prefer the tropical farm and no one that I know of really loves the candy farm.

    Always thought that leprechauns gave a pot of gold when you found them.  I agree I don't like the pranking concept.  Hopefully pricing on fruit seed will go down.  Even at my level which isn't extremely high I tend to do the special farms rarely cause they cost way to much sometime and you don't get full value when you break them down unless you do it yourself
    Sadly, we won't always get gold when we find a leprechaun.  According to the post, sometimes he'll prank another building instead.

    @Damaria3 (US1) @RaquelCesar (GB1) This is something that wasn't working as designed so they needed to adjust the tools drops. We will continue to forward all feedback regarding this & keep the topic going so that changes can be made if need be.

    With all due respect Cuddly and I know you aren't making these answers up yourself but, it took four years  for the light bulb to go off and say we are giving the players too  much and this all happened when the four machines got rolled out and players asked for MORE toolbox drops?  Something very stinky fishy here and it isn't Oleg.

    @CuddlyFoxes keep forwarding feedback, because that is absolutely ridiculous to bring in new machines, then take away what is needed to run machines in the first place. Ri Dic U Lous.

    I agree with Damaria3....very stinky fishy!

    Hate the idea of being pranked . That is all we need is to make weekly events harder by pranks. 

    Second I hate the shorting of Temp island. Can not finish them in 30 days now so lets make it even harder and shorten the time.

    Oh wait that is right we do not have a choose to opt out and not play the event as we are going to be pranked either way!!!

    Why not fix this before it starts and catch the Leprechaun and get a gift not a prank and keep the 30 days for the temp islands or even better give more time to do the temp island like 40 days.

    I have two questions for you, Cuddly:


    1.  When did this change take place?  (meaning...Was it in this update or earlier?)


    2.  "the amount of tool drops have been re-balanced and reduced"   How much were they reduced?  (a percentage would be great)

    @stef7 (US1)  No everyone will get a prize if you participate you will be gathering both reg happiness and CV happiness while you harvest your farms only the top 250 players will receive a flag and the top person also gets an additional prize.   I think you got confused with the event and the changes to the wheel of fortune.  Happy Farming  good luck in the event.

    I have to agree with other posters that this answer is not explaining anythng. So I put some thoughts to it. Can't figure any "not working as designed" game related issues.- the only result is lower harvests which means more difficult events, slower filled orders etc. So could we get some more  detailed explanation pls?

    There's another aspect where I on the other hand can see rather clear relations, and that is monetization. Could it be, by any chance, that "not working as intended" translates "this feature didn't bring enough gold purchases"? Becouse that seems to make perfect sense. Lower the amount drasticaly (what is it - less then 50 % of previous?) when need increased, and then drop the price on gold purchase, hoping to encourage players to forget already tedious drops collecting and replace it by paying?

    Hey @gavinfarms (US1)

    1. Yes, the changes with the tool drops were added to the game with today's update.
    2. I don't have an official percentage to give you right now but I will ask when the team is back in office. As aleydy posted above, players are reporting that they were getting 5 and 3 toolboxes from the silo & composter previously but are now receiving 1 toolbox. This has been reported from other communities as well. The silo and composter are the only buildings that are affected by the reduced amount of tools.


    In regards to the temp farms, as Wabbit posted earlier, the candy farm will be next but will not be affected by the shorter times. We have about a month before those changes will be added to the game so we will continue to forward all feedback on this as well so that any necessary changes can be made.
