Hi There,

We just released a new version of the game with the following features and bug fixes:

1. Father's Day items (released a few weeks ago)

2. 25 new Levels: 60+ items all in coins.

3. Farm Selector Diamonds and Hiring Windows now have a 4 x 5 layout to fit more farms better.

4. Farm 19: Here are the prices in coins (FC prices remains the same):

12 x 12 Farm 19: 19000000
14 x 14 Upgrade: 16000000
16 x 16 Upgrade: 17000000
18 x 18 Upgrade: 18000000
20 x 20 Upgrade: 2300000000
22 x 22 Upgrade: 2400000000
24 x 24 Upgrade: 2500000000
26 x 26 Upgrade: 3000000000
28 x 28 Upgrade: 5000000000
30 x 30 Upgrade: 4000000000
32 x 32 Upgrade: 4000000000

5. When hired in the market we now remove the highlight of the recently worked farm in the farm selector so you don't go back to it by mistake: At the current time, we remove the highlight by just visiting the farm, no work is required to be performed.

6. Metal Sheets production increased in Metal Mill:

Copper Sheets: 33% Increase
Stainless Steel Sheets: 40% Increase
Aluminum Sheets: 40% Increase

7. Metal Sheets delivery increased in the Bulkhead Freight Car by 3 times (300%): Each Bulkhead Car now delivers a Load equivalent to the production of 3 Metal Mills fully loaded.

8. Animal Changes:

a) Animal Storage increased by almost 50%, from 125 to 180
b) Animals can now be hidden as long as you are not in your farm, this include visits to others, no need to be hired
c) When visiting others you will never see more than 300 animals in a farm to minimize slowness

9. Super Animal Buildings (FC): There are now 3 new Super Animal Buildings (green versions) with the following benefits:

a) Super Dairy Shed: Double animal capacity to 360 per animal type. Double Holstein Cows productivity to 40 x Milk.
b) Super Chicken Coop: Reduce harvest time to 12 hours. Double animal capacity to 360. Double Leghorn Hens productivity to 40 x Eggs.
c) Super Wool Shed: Reduce harvest time to 1 day. Double animal capacity to 360. Double Heavywool Llamas and Longwool Sheep productivity to 40 x Wool.

10. Tool Shortcuts: There is a new Shortcut icon (arrow) next to the Save icon (disk) in the top right buttons. This will allow you to place any tool icon from the extended tool bar in the main game panel shortcuts area (where the minigames and the buddies are now).

You can now have your 2 most frequently used tools from the extended tool box more accessible, 1 click away. The minigames and buddies icons are now on the extended tool box as well.

When you are visiting others or you are at the Inn or Marketplace you can still access the Buddie or Minigame icons from your regular toolbox.

11. Better Storage Management: The 'From Plants' filter in the storage and market windows has been replaced by 2 filters, 'Crops' and 'From Trees'. There is also a new filter 'Ingredients from Facilities' which will only show products made on regular facilities that have a use as an ingredient in any other regular facility (not including service facilities).

You can also now sort the results in those windows by these criteria:

- Alphabetically
- Stored Amount
- Ingredient Importance

The last sorting should be very useful, it will show products from the more important to the less important. For example, metal sheets, wheat and lumbers are very important while the couscous is not.

12. A new American Elm Tree and 7 existing Trees and Bushes now produce branches for the Plant Nursery facility:

Birch Tree,
Dogwood Tree,
Holly Bush,
Mugo Pine Bush,
Smoke Bush,
Snake Plant,
Dieffenbachia Bush.

13. Plant Nursery (FC): Produces Decorative Plants.

American Elm Bonsai
Birch Bonsai
Dogwood Bonsai
Holly Bush Bonsai
Mugo Pine Bonsai
Smoke Bush Bonsai
Snake Plant Pot
Dieffenbachia Pot

14. Theater Supplies Factory (coins): Produces Theater Supplies.

Actress Dress
Flower Necklace
Hip Scarf
Twin Towers Decor
Stick Mask
Ticket Booth
Theater Chair

15. Garden Center (FC): Provides Decorative Plants Retail Services and can be stocked with all products from the Plant Nursery.

16. Theater (coins): Provides Theatrical and Dance Performance Services and can be stocked with all products from the Theater Supplies Factory.

*** After doing a deeper research we concluded that we will not be able to convert the remaining farm cash decorations to coins. On the next release we will convert only the Topiaries to compensate for the disappointment.
