4. Cooperative Quests Updates (some were launched 1-2 weeks ago):

- Fixed several bugs on Buy and Sell transactions
- Replaced "This transaction could not be completed" message by a more accurate message "Products no longer needed". This is usually a valid message, ex: if you try to sell a product to user X but already another user sold it to user X moments ago, or when you try to buy a product from someone but already another user sold it to you moments ago.
- Auto fixing of some Regular and Cooperative Quests that were locked without any way to make progress
- Funeral facility product quests are hidden from you when browsing other Cooperative Quests if you have that option enabled in your preferences
- The "Load Fishing Tackle Shop with Bait" quest is now permanently removed as baits never go to storage and therefore no one can sell it to you
- Blue dots are not shown on neighbours with only expired quests or only expired and completed quests
- Changed quest unlock levels from levels 20 / 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 to levels 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100, so now users at level 100 can have 5 concurrent quests
- Neighbour avatars name now shows when you mouse over their picture
- When browsing Cooperative Quests if there is a user that just completed all its quests the flow will not be interrupted, you will be allowed to continue to the next user
- When ordering the neighbour bar by Cooperative Quests the current user is always shown to the left of the leftmost neighbour with a blue dot, this way neighbours with blue dots are visible in the screen right away

5. Animal Buildings capacity increased: Regular buildings now hold up to 200 animals instead of 180. Super Animal Buildings now hold up to 400 animals instead of 360.

6. Reach product Belts and Dans for the next 10 facilities

7. General Improvements and bug fixes:

- Farm zoom level is more stable, when you go to other non-farm locations like Market or Inn you can change zoom level but when you go back to your farm your original zoom level is restored.
- While preparing to send a Hire Request to others, ex: selecting checkboxes or target farms, all Hire Requests sent from others to you will be ignored, this will avoid some unintentional clicks on those incoming requests.
- Fixed bug that was not allowing users to buy 25 FarmCash for 4.99.
- Fixed bug where all Animal Buildings not ready to be harvested were showing this message "No animals to collect manure from at this time".
- When visiting others their info on the bottom left is a bit more compacted to reclaim some of the space taken by the Cooperative Quest icon.

Known Issues

- When sending gifts, the 'All Friends', 'Farm Town Players' and 'Friends to Invite' dropdown options are automatically provided by facebook and they have a bug now which is showing only the first 50 users, we are trying to find a workaround this.
