  • Is it too much to ask that my boxes open? We went through this a few days ago and there's no reason why they can't open now.



  • I couldn't make the premium liquid fert in the lab on the flower farm. I even tried making less and it didn't work.

    The Valentine's Teddy flag is cute <3

    Since graphics changes are being introduced often nowdays, can we get new backgrounds ( themes for our farms ).

    Also, Background themes for Horse Ranch, Fishing Region, deco valley and co-op village.

    This update broke the game for me completely. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's unplayable at the moment, I literally can't do anything at all, because the core gameplay loop (Harvest Crops->Make Feed->Feed Animals) is 99% broken. I can plant and sometimes harvest crops, but I can't do anything with them.
    Here are the issues I'm seeing, current as of today:

    1. When I logged in to collect my products on the main farm, I kept getting told "barn full, you have to sell products" but it would only let me sell the exact amount needed to make space. When I clicked "sell", the dialogue didn't go away, I had to click "sell" twice. This sold double the amount of product, as expected.

    2. My barns show up as empty for most products. I checked when collecting cows, pigs etc. and it said I have zero of any of them, but it still claimed I must sell milk because "barn is full". Now I have nothing left to give to the ship or contracts, because I had to keep a 100% empty barn to be able to collect anything on the farm. I seem to only be able to keep a maximum of what one stable/production building is able to produce. For example 420 milk, the amount one cowshed makes on my farm. 

    3. I can't start production of chicken feed, despite the fact that I have zero of it. I can't feed my chickens because I have zero feed, but I can't make feed because I just get a pop-up that says "Your barn is full! Sell Harvest to make some space." No doubt this is the case for every other type of feed, too. 

    4. I also can't ship products to my Gourmet Farm restaurant anymore. The button in the Barn menu is grey, and simply says "You do not have the right building to perform this function". This means that unless this gets fixed, my Gourmet Farm restaurant will be unusable when it runs out of products.

    5. The Valentine's Event is pointless to me as well, because nothing on my Main Farm drops the event items. I saw the "Romantic gifts" pop up on the farm when collecting things, but the event dialogue still tells me I've got 0.

    Please fix these issues as soon as possible. I like to keep full stocks of things like apples, cherries, milk and pigs for the ship, it sucks to have to sell 3000 milk just to be able to harvest 420 milk, and makes no sense. I'm not interested in logging back in to check if there are more issues, I'm sorry about that. Normally I'd be more than happy to try and help by seeing if there are more bugs, but today I'm just too disappointed to do the work that truthfully doesn't belong to me. 

    Thank you for your time, whoever reads this and hopefully can relay it to the developers. I'm sorry that they have such a hard time, I hope they won't give up on the game just because it has issues like this every year. I certainly haven't given up, I keep coming back and hope to see the game succeed and overcome its growing pains. I believe in the studio and everyone that works for it. Thanks for your hard work.

  • Just a quick THANK YOU for reducing the pop-ups!  SOOO much more enjoyable:-))
    Happy Valentine's Day !

    My WWC event is at 0.

    After cleaning and restarting it was fixed, but every time I close my farm, the WWC event appears again at 0

    I have an excellent internet and my game works great.
    But once in a month or two, my internet has some issue lasting for a few hours or a full day. 
    Exactly this time around, I get all these problems being mentioned in above comments. Like barn showing 0. Wwc scores showing 0. Errors, or many clicking to harvest. Sometimes reloading helps, sometimes it doesn't.

    I could be wrong, but I feel the quality of internet rather than the speed in Mbps/Gbps ... Affects the game in some way.

    I have a dedicated fibre optic internet. 

    Google Adblock plus for Firefox/chrome.
    This is an add-on for both Firefox and Chrome browsers. It stops loading of all ads when loading the game. This could speed up your game a bit. You could try it and see if it works.

    I wish this color in Barn page could be made white, so that the contrast increases and it becomes clear to see the filled amount.


    The barn currently shows 9 items at once, it could be made 12 by increasing the window size of the barn window


    This will help less scrolling with mouse reach lower faster.

    Even though i liked the old Farm management window, after being forced to play with this new Barn, im getting a bit used to it.
    The scrolling is certainly better than going to Page number 7 or 8.

    If this Barn window size is increased and it shows 12 items in one place, it might look okay.

    Also, there are many items like humus, premium humus, super humus, seaweeds, leaves, etc etc .... which are shown in each Tab ( MF, GF, FF ) .... this just clutters the space.
    A few adjustments/refinement to the new barn could make it a better option than the old Farm management.

    @TMKC (IN1)

    I will follow your advice!  :)

    I will add the plug-in to the browser and check my internet connection with my provider.

    Thank you very much for your help!  <3

    What I would like to know is, will the Pleasure Park Tickets (similar to the fish tokens) only allow me to trade for only a certain number of building tokens?  Or when my level of building tokens decreases because I used the slot to build something and so the inventory has returned to zero or some amount less than 50, will I continue to be able to trade my PP tickets for more building tokens and so on?

    I have questions about the new Pleasure Park event and don't see a thread for that specifically, so I wasn't sure if it was falling into this category or not....
    I am unable to open the ranking rewards on the Pleasure Park event.  Is it just me, or is it a bug?
    Also, I see on the prize list that I can exchange my tickets for prizes, but the GML is listed twice: once for 12,000 tickets and once for 24,000 tickets.  Just wondering if this is an error, or is there a limit that you can only get one for 12,000 and then one for 24,000?  The descriptions are identical and don't make sense to me.  It will take me probably several times playing to get enough tickets to try to buy a GML to find out the answer and I'd like to be able to tell my co-op, so if anyone knows, I'd appreciate the info!!!
    Thanks!!

    Still can't play the game, due to issues I mentioned in my previous post. 

    I've tried all the usual things: Reloading the game, clearing my cache, turning adblock on and off, using a different browser. None of this worked for me.

    I hope it's not widespread, and I hope it gets fixed soon. Shame to miss out on the Valentine's event because I won't be able to collect all the items on time, if my farm ever works again. :disappointed:

    First GML (12.000 tickets)  can be purchased only once, after that you can purchase the second GML for 24.000 tickets.  Rankings rewards works fine here.

    I just finished spending over $4B setting up my deco park, will not be happy if GML and manor are removed.  We could get 2 GML and 1 manor + other rewards from 1 PP, I hope this does not change.  I am scared that they are about to destroy this event totally, wait and see.

    I called it, rewards for PP have been drastically reduced.  It will now take 2 PP just to get 1 manor and that is if you get ALL the hard work rewards and win server, you will get no other rewards.

    Not only have they reduced the value of the rewards, but also removed the building slot tokens from the list ( along with the other events ) so you now have to buy them with the tickets that you win in the event -  Very Poor GGS   0/10

    Yes, I have dedicated high speed cable too.  And yes occasionally there are network issues. BUT... I also usually have multiple screens open at once.  USUALLY either youtube news feeds, or at least internet music is on another window while this game is on.  Then I may check email, or tranmission, or sometimes even play another game while waiting for some harvest here. AND I have a tool that shows download and upload speeds in real time.
    So when there is any internet issue, it effects ALL my activities.  
    But when this game has issues, and nothing else does,
    it has to be on the game end of things, not the internet. 
    Same here. 500 Mbps optic fibre connection,when i do a ping it give 482Mbps on the Wifi and 503 Mbps on the cable.So that is not the problem. I can have 4  windows open without any problems. 
    Another game i play is also a farming game and it goes without hickups or lagging. But this game has its ups and very downs. most of the times it goes regulary,but last C-C with Wf ready and a new started. I was not even to be able to harvest 13 times. Mission =30 min-1 minute for the first harvest. That leaves 29 minutes for 26 minutes of growing. 3 minutes away. And that was with the automatic harvester/seeder. 
    A bit later i did it by hand,and managed to harvest 9 times WF in a mission.Where the half of my last harvest did not came in on time.
    Have a very high end game computer with will runs his cleaning programs every night so it is not clogged up or whatever.

    But the fact that there are to-many events gooing on at the same moment. The data-info what comes in is way to much for the most computers,but also for the servers. The overload of the server is in the eyes of my private computerwizzard to much. That provokes the lagging and error messages times after time. Also it will disconnect you from the server time after time. It happends on the cable aswell as on the Wifi.

    My idea is to intergrate a option to disable the events wich the player NOT like or Will play. Must be not that hard to realize and for sure it will keep the speed in the game for those who concentrate only on the C-C when it is running.

    Some how that doesn't seem right - a player can earn the 12,000 tickets to exchange for 1 GML
    now why would one earn 24,000 to only get 1 more GML
     More thinking the second offer will be 2 GML for the 24,000 tickets earned

    Update: Game now works again. I haven't done anything different, so I assume Goodgame has been working on the game slowness etc. that others reported and my issue's been fixed along with it.
    The lost event items and barn items are back and I can once again transport items to my Gourmet restaurant as well. Thanks a lot! c:
    Niryn @ WWW 1
  • new barn format is not user friendly.  instead of a few clicks to view stocks, one has to scroll and recognize the items - more cumbersome and trouble some.  consider reverting to old format

    And one can longer see how long a certain item takes to grow etc. The normal day-to-day seeds are ok but the seldom used items have zero info on them. :-(

    Why is it when we need/want a notification to work it does not? We are inundated by exclamation marks peddling utter nonsense at an extravagant cost yet a functional notification does not work.

    I suppose we should be eternally grateful that none of the GGS/BFG development (word used sarcastically) team write software for aeroplanes or nuclear power stations.

    Farm deals in the parking lost has lost its notification timer feature, you now have to hover over the barrow to get the timer to show but it loses itself once you change farms.

    i've counted the HW rewards for the PP are 146K, if you win your difficulty level, there's another 50K which means 196 x 2 = 392, that leaves enough for a country manor and 2 x 12K gml's with almost a 24K gml :)

    @The Best King (INT1) your numbers are almost correct, hard work rewards are actually 144k ( but close enough), my point exactly, they have over halved the rewards for this event and that is for the person who wins, less for all other player who could get manor on old system in 1 PP as some of us could.  I have almost got all the hard work rewards already for this PP so not much point doing any more with the reduction in rewards.  Prior to change we could get 2 GML a Manor and 48 other rewards in 1 PP, not possible to even do that now in 2 PP
