More Farmville frustrations
It’s been some time since I wrote a FarmVille post. The original game was good, but it’s designer has left Zynga and the game is unrecognisable now and quite complicated. I have Home Farm, with an extension called Sunflower Meadow. (more…)
Farmville – you cant win
I haven’t posted a FarmVille blog for a while. As you can see from the picture, I have 1,046,044,929 coins and I have 4 farms that I’m using. I gave up on the one with coconuts and that weird one; Jade Falls. Haunted Hollow? No, didn’t bother with that either. I’m on level 1160 and so I must be doing something right.
It’s been a while since I have written a FarmVille blog. I have come close to giving it up all together, it is so frustrating. They have one aim at Zynga and that is to sell you FV cash. As you can see from the picture, I have over a billion coins and another billion in cows! Fuel is very important in FarmVille and if you don’t have enough you end up harvesting one plot at a time. I was doing that on the Hawaiian Paradise farm. That was slow! I put the damn thing on pause and left it to rot. I still have four farms. Home Farm, English Countryside, Winter Wonderland and this one; Lighthouse Cove. It takes ages to load each farm and so travelling between them is frustrating. (more…)
I don’t like the FarmVille Hawaiian paradise, it’s hard to plow and I have over 900 million coins so I’m not keen on buying stuff using coconuts! They are planning FarmVille 2 now, but it won’t be any better unless they listen to players; like me! I have The Home Farm, Lighthouse Cove, the English Farm, the Winter Wonderland and now Hawaiian Paradise. I would like one that works well and makes sense. The change to widescreen doesn’t work too well some of it isn’t wide screen and doesn’t fit. (more…)
Oh no it’s Farmville
FarmVille on Facebook
All my friends got this message from Farmville the other day. Errors aren’t unusual and the guys at Zynga don’t seem to care. The game refreshes quite a lot and now many of us have 5 farms, moving between farms takes too long. Perhaps Zynga should try to get the game to work better and forget additional farms and quests? I think the players would like that! (more…)
FarmVille | The Quest for level 1000
OK, I was on level 900 and I had bought a few belted cows. In case you haven’t figured this trick out yet. I take the ‘move’ tool and move one of those ‘ready’ belted cows into my dairy and then it become ‘ready to harvest’. If I have 39 cows in the dairy and add one to harvest it; that’s 40 and I get 3000 coins for each one. That is 120,000 coins for each harvest (harvest with the multi tool). Now you know why I have a billion coins!
Farmville | Winter Wonderland
It’s been a while since I wrote a Farmville blog, it gets more complicated and time consuming. If you still have your dairies then you can make lots of coins and level up easily. I’m on level 685 and one of my neighbours is on level 750, maybe higher now! (more…)
Farmville | Goods and Crafts
I have a winery on my Home farm and a bakery; on the Lighthouse Cove one a restaurant and on the English Countryside a pub! I am stocking up on goods and converting them into fuel and as you see I have over 19,000 lots of fuel now. I think Zynga might make it harder to get fuel and so I keep stocking up. They introduced the pasture for cows to replace the dairies and I have one on my Home Farm but kept the dairies on Lighthouse Cove and the English farm. (more…)
How do I put the train together?
It’s not a puzzle, you use straight pieces to go straight and corner pieces to go around corners! You can go to the market and enter ‘train’ in the search box because the straight bit is separate from the corners. To get the engine, you ‘make’ one in the craftshop using red clover, apple wood baskets and hay. I know it makes no sense – this is FarmVille. (more…)
Farmville | level 600
They changed Facebook and Farmville this week! The main change to Farmville was to offer cow pasture in exchange for dairies. This means the belted cow trick won’t work any more! Whoops! (more…)
Farmville | Level 500
Yes, I’m on level 500! I did it with the belted cows! You can buy belted cows for 1,000,000 coins when you get to level 75. You can see some of mine on the picture. There are more in the dairies and on my English Countryside farm. I have about 30 in those dairies that I use (the ones near the cows). (more…)
Farmville | Update 2
This week, I’m looking at crafting. You can see my sales in the winery. My highest priced wine is red wine at 10,900 coins. I only have 32 but that’s OK, I did run out! You can also see that my neighbours buy that one because they can exchange it for more fuel. If you look at the others you can see that the raspberry wine is on level 71. If we multiply that level by 100 we get 7,100 and then add 900 and we get the price it’s selling at 8,000 coins. This applies to all the wine shown except the red wine. Past level 100 this rule doesn’t apply and now I have gone past level 120 I think I won’t be getting more coins for levelling up on the red wine. I will still make red wine; it sells well for a good price but I need to level up blackberry and raspberry wine and get those to level 100 too. (more…)
Farmville for Beginners | Update 3
I have given you a picture of my farm this week. I’m on level 350 and have 80 FV cash. I still have my billion coins and over 70 million I have added in the past few days. At this level it takes 10 million coins to get 100,000 XP and go up a level. I went up 18 levels last weekend and now my neighbour and I are both on level 350 and happy to be equal I think!
Farmville for beginners | Update 2
I’ve used a picture from my winery today to show crafts. I also have a bakery and of course a pub on the English countryside farm! You can see in this picture that I am making 3 lots of wine and the blackberry wine is on level 43. It is a good idea to get one craft item on a high level; I have red wine on level 110. (more…)
Farmville for Beginners | Update 1
You can see in the picture that I have a dairy near those belted cows and that is the main trick for making millions of coins. You can’t buy belted cows until you have reached level 75 but you can still do the trick with ordinary cows or the brown cows or whatever you can get. (more…)
Farmville for beginners…. No 1
Someone mentioned Farmville to me last year and I thought I would have a go at playing. Now I’m past level 300 and have a castle! Most of the stuff in the picture is either only available on the higher levels or a limited edition that has finished like the castle towers. You can get off the bottom of the levels and level up quite fast by understanding the game, then using a few tricks and strategies. (more…)
