    Dianemo64Farmer (US1) Sorry to say, but for now it seems you will have to switch to Chrome or Firefox. 

    Keep smiling and enjoying the game :smile:

    Will any of these new event seeds be brought to us through the Jetty?  Will they be put into mystery boxes?

    I know there are alot of people that work and play big farm from their mobile phones.  This change to HTML5 really affected the ability to play big farm as you can log into opera, puffin, Edge and Chrome but you cannot move your screen to see your whole farm.

    If anyone has any influence at big farm, could you please look into how big farm can be playable on a mobile phone in any browser?  Or bring back flash until it's actually no good in 2020?

    If the zoom out function can be changed so the whole farm fits in the screen, it would help.
    But I do not think GGS has any intention to make this game playable on mobile phones. They rather have us play the mobile version.

    @Data King (US1)

    Not aimed at you guys personally as moderators, but you should be aware in case there has been an error in what I got for my gold...
    @WascallyWabbit
    @CM_Hunter

    If they are supposed to help with the Wedding Planner than I would suggest people don't bother wasting gold on them. On any of the fast growing plants such as the 30 minute Aloe Vera, I get a return of 3 doves. With the super expensive 150 GOLD orchids the return was a great big whopping 4. Yeeha grandma, a whole 1 extra dove for all that gold. I am no slouch when it comes to game play having won a Grand House for the WWC, multiple HWE events, Goldfish and regularly win missions against much higher level players but I'll be damned if I can finish that Wedding Planner and I refuse to use gold to do it. My gold only gets used on farm improvements that are of value, not something with useless reward decorations that will never be used because the happiness value doesn't warrant it.

    In the current wedding event, I had all my donations prepared and flew through all the early parts, 1 through to 4, even the pearls but with just on an hour and a half to go, I still need 2,000 bloody doves or 6,065 gold to finish. GGS can stick the Wedding Planner and their Orchids...
    Save up all that useless Seaweed Greenhouse Humus from Mystery Boxes and other sources.  Then use them 1 at a time on Lime, Gooseberry or Elderberry seeds. 2-5 Doves/Pigeons as fast as you can click. Well, at least until you run out of seeds or fertilizer. :)

    Credit to @Lylu (INT1)  for the tip. :) (At least in my case) :)
    Good tip. Thank you for that. I did finally manage to finish the thing at level 3 using another excellent tip: Oktoberfest was running, and I had a 50% production time going, so I churned those tomato seeds (5 minutes with the production booster), like a person possessed. :)
    .


    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

    Let's add insult to the injury... at the end of the event, and you still want that absolutely fantastic deco that is not worth putting on the farm at that ridiculous price of 6,065 gold, well at least 1 hour or so before the end.......

    ROFL!!! it is always like this... I would not pay gold either way! Who cares??  if I don't finish event, I will get another chance at it... they keep coming and I work to change my strategy to get it! Eventually I will get it and not pay all  that gold. ;)

    With all that said, I think the tasks for doves, pearls and whatnot are a bit high!!!

    iMac is not compatible with HTML5. I've spoke with multiple Apple reps / supervisors over the last few weeks... all of whom denied any knowledge of issues w/ European hacking incidents & migration towards singular usage of the HTML5 format.

    Hmmmm, let's see...If I were a multi-billion dollar corporation with this issue, which negatively impacts massive numbers of my clientele, I THINK I would at least make an effort to contact major computer markets and inform them of the problem. Being forewarned, they'd be better able to make necessary upgrades, etc, so that the needs of said clientele could be met. The fact that this issue was been identified well in advance and was not addressed, is more than somewhat disturbing. More than sufficient time was available to, at a very minimum, get wheels moving towards a solution. Pretty basic stuff; truly not rocket science.  : (

    Lag is less in Google chrome and Firefox

    Also, uncheck the Show Animation box in settings
    And select Low in settings

    Instead of reloading the game, just visit co-op village once and back to your farm. The lag disappears. Keep repeating this whenever you feel lag.

    Install ADBLOCK plus for firefox and Chrome .... that will block all Ads ... greatly helps speed up the game.

    What times are you seeing, Slyvia?  Almonds have always been 4:00 Hours, and Olives/Citrus have always been 6:00 Hours.. Are you seeing something different?

    On "my" NL1 server I see 4 hours for almond and 6 hours for citrus and olive , as they have always been.

    I haven't seen him on the Main Farm since the update.. He was on the Candy Farm yesterday though, and he left.. That's probably when you got the popup.

    The watertower maximum amount has always been 50%.  There are no plans to change it at this time.  As others have stated the Almonds, Olives and Citrus trees times look the same to me too.

    @Southern (US1)

    Been thinking a lot about the tip (Credit to @Lylu (INT1) ) for the Wedding Planner. Obviously with it now finished I can't do any testing but was wondering if it also works using the special seeds and what the drop rate would be?
  • Not too long ago, HTML tab was at the top of my farm. I switched once. Is this permanent, as the option is now gone?  Every time I harvest from a boat, or some other items, I seem to get cod. Never do they register in my inventory. Any ideas?

    Yes, Flash is dead (see "Mod News Bulletin")
    The cod that you are seeing are WWC points.   :¬)
