  • Players hold onto to their gold and Big Farm gets even by sending contracts difficult to fill.   A tug of war?

    I am guessing GGS is not too worried about me having too much farm cash. :D   At least I hope not. :#  




    Wow, you keep run your farm on 'danger' zone. I hope your farm get well soon.

    You may need to demolish a couple of fertile fields. Do you still have 30 fields?

    The fertile fields will have to stay, not just gonna throw gold to the wind.  I have been demolishing chickens, apples will be next.  If I get on a roll I might demolish everything except the fields, LOL.   I had the 30 fields before the DSF.  I added cows, pigs, apples & cherries when my farm was making enough cash from the DSF to support them. I changed my entire way of farming because when the DSF was implemented there was absolutely no indication that they forgot to add a market or that they were going to decide to nerf it after everyone spent their gold on upgrades for the dockyard and boats. 
    Hmmm.  Yes, I can see where you might be hesitant to demolish anything you paid gold for, but I don't see how you're ever going to get back in balance without demolishing a few of the lower level ones.  If you do that, you may be able to free up enough workers to demolish a house or two, then upgrade a few houses.  With as many houses as you have now, your happiness balance is all out of kilter, and no amount of deco upgrading will fix that. Then you can add back a few stables -- you should be able to support them without the fishing at some point.  After a bit, you should find the farm profitable.

    I was doing fine before DSF came along. My happiness was above 80 in the green and I was able to do and complete the 2 deco events I like doing. I always avoided the island completely.  Got my horseshoes from events and just the 4 slot boat. Then when the DSF came along I started following the yellow brick road, I thought it was going to take me to see the wizard, little did I know it was leading to hell.  

    I am just going to put my farm back the way it originally was.  1 pig, 5 cows, 2 apple trees, 1 cherry tree & my 30 fields.  When necessary I will build temp stables or orchards as I did in the past.  

    I went from playing for hours a day to just checking in for projects and the adventure boat and to demolish something. I send empty boats out once in a great while,  not sure why, because I don't bother with the market and its over-rated trinkets; habit I guess. Been doing some work on the outside of the house.  I seem to find scrapping the paint off my front railing much more appealing than the game lately. 

    I do appreciate everyone's help and advice and I thank you for it, but I am just gonna try to get back to the way things were before the DSF, maybe that will help with the desire to play again.  :::shrug:::: i dunno
    Understood.  Didn't mean to be preachy.  Hugs.
    No worries artful.  Never took it as preachy.  Like I said, I do appreciate your help and advice.  : )
    This whole DSF just threw me out of whack a bit.  

    Breakdown on the Lab
    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days
    25,264.27 (days) ÷ 365 (days in a year) = 69.22 years to fully upgrade the Lab
    That's if you use the daily earnings to upgrade the Lab ONLY, no spending on other upgrades, islands, boosters, or anything else.

    What is the point of the Mermaid Bay other than to get fishing xps?

    The production costs of the items are almost the same as the selling price of the finished products. When you count the cost of the raw fish, isn't it a loss making activity?

    I sell the products from the Mermaid Bay at the end of every day, you can get some very useful farm cash from the proceeds :)

  • Artful, your link was very helpful.  I discovered that the best return for my money and fish is the Maui-Maui in Lemon Sauce recipe.  I had been making Sushi and thought it was best.   Thank you!  I sent your link to everyone in my co-op.

    Making fish tacos, and crab patties is good for the jetty for personal box.  Remember  xmas will be here soon and you will need to have your barns full of goodies to do the SWL  so don't give up on making items

    @Damaria3 (US1)
    Thank you for the reminder to fill up barns for the SWL.  I always try to keep mine full but I am sure many tend to sell off what they have for upgrades and such.

    Fish tacos are a good trade for the jetty personal donations.  The carp patties tend to require far too many.  I try to stick with the fish tacos and apple turnovers, their required ingredients and turnaround time is less of a loss in profits.   The calculations below are based on level 1 Jetty.  Level 2 is 54% increase for personal donations and there are some added products but it is basically the same formula.  Fish tacos are definitely the best option.

    When I actually started this boat, it completed in the proper amount of time.  The error was only on the window display above.
    U r using too much Roy  if u want u catch 114 shrimp then I think 3Roy are good or 4
    I mean u need one bait for shrimp 7 brigget and 4 roy then u can accomplish the task more quickly @gavinfarms (US1)
    This was done to make the error very clear.  It is not meant to suggest that you can only catch shrimp this way.  However, there are a couple of circumstances, in which this is an ideal setup for shrimp.

    I recommend to make a vote before starting VL Challenge, decide which challenge basket would be suit for everyone. Also, the 'leader' hold up until he/she can deciding the challenge can be played with everyone in the coop
