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…)
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!
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…)
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!
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…)
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…)
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…)
