    I love the update from what I found so far.  I will get chance for diamonds from horse challenge, the boxes moved to the side..

    ALL good from what I see.

    Only thing I need to see extra to be done, is something to spend the shields on.  ALL my trees are going to be level 2 soon, once they get to 4 what do I do with all these shields?

    Are there other ways to get Diamond Boxes besides horse racing?

    IMHO the nice big collection of trophy stands is great and completely understandable that the space they require has taken some area that used to have trees. So some trees had to be moved. Why does that cause complaints?
    I say relax, enjoy finding all the fantastic new surprising and fun free entertainment this update has brought us.

    Hi @KoStone (US1), I'm not sure if this is helpful or if it can change but in the OA it says:
    "You might be able to win the new Diamond box if your horse reached the highest league. The beauty of the brand-new Diamond box is that it will be available ONLY as part of the activity and ranking rewards for the diamond league."

    Bold added by me

    Just hope I have an option to rearrange all those trees to the place that I Iike. Those trees make my horse ranch look even more mess.
  • GrammaLeah (US1)GrammaLeah (US1) US1 Posts: 551
    It's a problem, because I put the trees around the buildings so they would be easier to harvest (and I wanted them in those spots). Now I have to bounce all over the screen.
    Would be nice if we could choose either shields or farm dollars like most things.

    Why make it impossible for so many to get the new prizes that you are putting out there GGS?

    Cause in a little while, you'll be able to buy those prizes for Gold - and many will - believe me!

    I do see your point and it is only a game. However, the place where the trophy stands now are is not where the majority of my trees were. There was no need to move my trees and they are not now where I decided to put them. I would just like the choice, opportunity to design my farm the way I wanted it. In the other farms I can move the buildings to where I want them, why not on this farm?

    To be honest, we did'nt know that people "liked" to build a few random tree's there and there ( maybe we missed that info ) , its a bit newish, as its appearing in feedback now , we will report that to the team :)

    Probably relevant to bring my suggestion to have the ability to move trees around which is https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/205261

    Is it my imagination or have racing tracks become shorter, making it more manageable to win them with less equipment?

    am I to understand that we will find diamond boxes in the mine? How?

    With the upgrade it's all I can do to reach the gold level now.
    I had my trees growing in an area that was easy to harvest and moving the trees around in this latest upgrade has defeated that whole purpose.  I do like the earlier suggestion made of being able to move trees to where we want them.

    After the earlier horse update, I had two trees of each kind. After this update all of my trees have moved and I only have one of the blue bugs and maybe of others. I did not take screen shots before the update so cannot provide proof. Please can someone help? :(

    I do like the lack of pop ups though :)
  • Data King (US1)Data King (US1) US1 Posts: 7,865
    Did the ground always look like this or am I just noticing it today since I was looking for changes? 

    If it's new I wonder if that means new training courses in the future?  :o




    yes rumor has it those will be new training area's

     Need help check CrazyBigFarm
  • GrammaLeah (US1)GrammaLeah (US1) US1 Posts: 551
    Why are they going to add NEW training areas, when apparently the OLD ones don't matter any more?
    I'm not going to put all that time and work into a new batch of training that will get trashed the next time they want to "upgrade" the farm. I doubt most other players will want to do that, either.

    Sorry I seem a bit... leery, but their history regarding this sort of thing is against them.

    Befuzzled... Where do I get the diamond flowers to grow? I haven't seen them in any of the sales as of yet? DId I miss that sale? I see where I could plant them and sell them on DW, If I only had the seeds that is.

    Before the update, you could only request a maximum of ten divinations per day.

    if you want, I can make you a list of all the things, GG have done/listened to players demands

    Of course, they can do things how they like , like any business, that in the end, decides of the products the offer overall

    Customers, simply cannot decide of everything , I'm sure GG listens fairly good overall

    And yes, they do not consult everyone before doing changes , if they would do so, they would never accomplish anything

    Please, Say more what you like , we forward most things :)

    But it will never be listened 100% of the time, because of many different factors , and people have to understand that as well 

    Any business, will have rigid elements of their products that they offer, that will be like they want

    I like that the pop ups are now gone into the top left corner. I don,t like it we cannot hide it completely as the left side bar task.

    And about those updates,revamps or whatever you like to call them.

    A long time ago the revamped/updated the DSF. It was such a succes that it looked or the 3th world war and 2th french revolution has been started again. So good was that new system. And you kinow why they did it. The players were making to fast to much farmdollars. The same now with the horsefarm. The players were getting to easy to the only real nice reward we can win there. The Allmighty beyond holy GML is the reward we are aiming for after years of training and breeding horses. So GGS thinks in all their wisdom. Lets annoy the players a bit more and put new exciting things in it as they call them and take away the advantage the long term players have.The horses were never fair anyway but that is another thing. In otherwords how is it possible a special breed level 112 horse loose from a level 19 horse. That is the same to me as that Cristiano Ronaldo with all his quality,s will loose a football match 1to 1 from a fat guy on beachslippers.

    The players are not negative by nature,The are MADE negative by the developers from this game. They are promissing cows with golden horns,but we cannot even catch the tail of that cow,the only thing we can do is pick up the dung.

    Fix all the things that are not working good,bugs etc and then start thinking of putting little by little new things in the game without bugs.

    And last on my wishlist is to have a bulldozer button on the horsefarm,to make that vfarm even with the ground and never go back there again. BTW explosives will do the job aswell.

    I agree with all said - what's really interesting is that GGS/Stillfront makes tons of money from us 'gambling' for virtuel stuff.
    This has become a better casino -  the difference is that the casinosite has to (by law) showing the percentages of winning for each event that they offer which can be played for real money(here called gold) 

    All we need now, is some slotmachines we can play on the farm - and we're all a casino, though without limitations to what value they offer and what chances we have of winning, if playing a 'perfect game'

    What's the percentage of me winning a GML when turning either wheel of fortune?

    Imo the Horsegame is dead - you overcomplicated it (Though you proudly presents your userbase of longterm, mostly female players aged +55 it seems like you're running for another audience.- You should know, the simpler the better would also be better for you.

    My post at the start of this thread was generally positive I thought    :¬)
    Diamond boxes and flowers I like
    Extra bits on the Tournament displays are good
    All the Offers disappearing into the icon on the left is super
    Bug fixes are all nice (although there are still whole pages of VF challenges that don't display)
    :¬D

       
  • Still don't understand the way to use the equipment and what the limits are. Just give a decent way to obtain the prices in the championship with horses.

  • Jasist2 (INT1)Jasist2 (INT1) INT1 Posts: 115
    Positives about update: Pop ups were relocated to the side, points required for next challenge support shown for VF, addition of diamond flower seed and diamond box, additional choice to buy some diamonds with gold in Farmers' League (even though I'm not sure is it worth the price, but an additional choice is always good, given that the price is fair. I would say 809 gold for 500 diamonds and 1 silver mystery box is fair, given that the diamond pass in dream world cost 17k gold for 8k diamonds. Most GML deals are not because the price is more expensive than buying them directly with gold. ) Also, bug fixes are appreciated. 


    Neutral about update: All Horse farm changes, additional tiers for fortune teller, 

     Negative about update: Change of reward of Village Fair, I strongly request that the gold theme box and silver mystery box is replaced back by golf mystery box. GOLD MYSTERY BOX! 

    Suggestion of improvement (of positives or neutral): Fix the issue of not displaying platinum league challenges, enable hiding of pop ups (for searching events)
