  • Is there a minimum level for the mill before you can start producing bait for the goldfish? I have one co-op member says she can't produce bait in a lvl 2 mill
  • How do you get goldfish in your village pond??

    I have been logging in and out all evening since the update



    What am I missing?

  • I for the life of me can't figure out the goldfish thing.  I'm getting bugs from the chicken coops.  Anyway, Wascally, I just want to know if there is any progress on why Sunset Clearing can't do any research.

  • Ah ok, I've got it now. Not only do you have to select the goldfish bait, but you have to then click on the '+' button next to it to activate the bait, and hey presto a goldfish appeared :)

    Bait seems to be working for me in the windmill.

    Gonna be able to test it in fishing when Oleg gets back in about 15 minutes.

    Well I have a Level 8 mill and still can't produce goldfish bait, so I don't think the level has anything to do with it.  I think it has everything to do with bugs in the game that they constantly introduce and don't care to fix.

    I just harvested my watermill in the gourmet farm and no cat charm came out. Also harvested the bakery, and no cat charms.  My poor kitty is frozen stiff! Sniff, Sniff!  :'(

  • Can't automatically plant event seeds after this update.  Have to plant individually ....and that's another pain!

    OMG  -  wondered where my cash had gone to, but realise now that the goldfish must be made out of real gold for being charged so much for Oleg to catch them for me.  Think I will be sitting this event out.

    Anyone want to buy some fleas??

    ,Say, now that is an idea: Set up a "Flea Market"! LOL.  Well at least my dog does not have fleas, even if every other animal on the main and gourmet farms do.  :D

    I wonder why he's giving me the option to catch goldfish with Farm Dollars?



    (Granted, it's fairly expensive when you can catch them yourself with the flea-bait for free, but some people only seem to have the "Gold" option to send him out.  There may be some mechanics here we haven't fulled flushed out yet.)

  • I can't seem to make any gold fish bait at my windmill. I've got fleas to make the bait but it doesn't even appear to be an option. I can only make goldfish flakes and pellets. Any ideas?

    the windmill has an extra tab with "goldfish" picture; and now everything is clear as glass...yippee! so the rescue continues...:D

     We already asked WascallyWabbit and are waiting for response. I think this is a bug which should get solved as soon as possible.

    I myself do not have the option to "only" go by the dollar, but gold only - others in my coop has the option to use dollars...

    I have told them, that its not that, but it should be the minigames.

    @Mac56 (GB1) @Shay1968 (US1) thanks guys...I was panicking for nothing...went also to bigcrazyfarm site & found info there as well...everything is on track now for continuing the rescue...can't believe how they bumbled & mumbled their way on that video...I think they need a better script writer for the next time & for sure some better visuals...those sheets were really hard to see; maybe next time use full screen with voiceover instead...ggg.  Again, thanks to u both; this time around wasn't so complicated...
  • "We will also attempt to repair broken cat trees on the gourmet farm in preparation for the cat charm madness."

    I love this wording, so its a definite maybe that people (like me) who had their working Cat Trees broken nearly 3 weeks ago will have them fixed.... maybe... Classic.
    Or have it even made worse, it is just gone from my farm sigh, and yes I have logged in again and an other player has confirmed that the spot is empty where it used to stand. So attempt at fixing was the right wording in my case...

    After 3 weeks my Cat Tree is still broken, please advise when this will be fixed.

    Thanks

    Why oh why do the goldfish cost so much?  2,110,000 for 5 goldfish in 45 minutes.  3,160,000 for 30 fish in 22 & a half hours.  Waaaay tooooo expensive for me.  Guess I won't be fishing any time soon.  :(

    How on earth can anyone fish for them at those ridiculous prices?

    You can always collect fleas and catch goldfish for (nearly) free in the minigame by using bait. (unless your farm is one of the broken ones that apparently won't make bait for some reason).

    The icon for fishing points are now Cod instead of Oleg.  
  • Also seems like the points for joint effort coop thing doesnt work properly.
    Only counts the points i make, not any of my fellow coop members.

    @WascallyWabbit Has the Cat madness started? 
    If not do we have an ETA?
    If it has then I am not getting cat charms from my pigs, cows, chickens on my MF (still to check the other farms)

    Tanks! J

    Tried fishing myself using only goldfish bait.  The other fish loved it. I'm done. :)

    After this latest update, I noticed that cod seems to be harvested along with the lobsters as well when I harvest stuff with the Mermaid Bay.  I will get screen shots the next time I harvest there.  Ok, I got a screen shot:  See, there is a cod hot off the shrimp boat!
