GETTING STARTED

When you first begin, all the new controls may seem a little hard to grasp. You will grow accustomed to them quick. Here is a fast overview:

-Click & Drag will move the camera
-Clicking will:
– Plow a patch of fallow land
– Bring up the market when plowed land is clicked
– Bring up more options on Trees, Animals, Buildings. Etc.
-The Plow tool at the bottom will allow you to plow grass areas, which you will need to do to expand and plant more over time!

When beginning, you will receive a short intro – Anyway! However, i hope that this cleared some controls up.

FASTEST LEVELS

The quickest way to level is easily by planting berries*. By continually planting strawberries you get (If you have a 12*12 farm) 288 Exp Every 4 hours. This is the very fast way. But obviously this is mainly used at the weekend unless you can check your farm and spend 20 minutes harvesting, ploughing and planting every hour. Naturally – if you’re in it for the levels and not the money – you can plough as much land as possible and continually plant on them. To get the most effective Exp Out of a plot you could leave a section of your farm plowed without seeding it and then plant soybeans (Best crop for what we are about to do) .Delete the Patches, And repeat, as many times as desired. This will cause you to gain Exp for the plowing and the planting, then being able to do it again on a empty plot.

Alternatively, pumpkins Or Rice if you spend a full 11 hours at work. If this is the case you need alternative methods of making Exp. Here are some:

Wanting fast levels means you wish to spend money on it. Buildings yield a lot of experience – however will cost you a large amount of your money. Eg. A windmill is bought for 100,000 Coins and Given 1,000Exp. Or 1% of what you paid…In Exp!! (An imaginary building cost 750,000 – You get 7,500Exp)

Finally, Helping 20 neighbours a day although somewhat dull, yields a maximum of 400 Exp for 20. (See the Assisting Section). In addition, the newly released Achievements (See section) gives great Exp as well as some money to spend on more Exp!!!

*Raspberries do not appear to give ANY Exp for planting. However, they give the same EXP (Over 4 hours) as strawberries from Plowing – Just more money!

FASTEST & MOST MONEY

To get the most money from your farm you want to not always plant the most expensive seed you can. The seeds that give the largest amount of cash are listed in the “Best Crop for Money/hour” At the top of the page. The higher the level you are, the better crops you can plant. So find the highest seed you can plant on the list and that will be your best money maker! You should also be sensible. If you know you are going out don’t pick the seed that will make the most money and will be harvest-able an hour before the predicted time you get home – Pick one that is slightly over your estimated time so nothing does go wrong!

Some seeds like Peppers, and Rice and Pumpkins are the best profit for the time they are planted (Best money per day) Also – To get an extra boost in money, Refer to the “Assisting” section

Finally, the newly released Achievements (See section) gives great Money!

Peas are now the best thing to plant. Harvesting in 1 Day and making a profit of 176 Coins Each. (70,400 Coins for a 20*20 Farm!)

BEST OF BOTH MONEY AND EXP

The best recommendation for this is to plant some seeds that take 3 days (or so) in a 1/3 of your farm, some seeds that take 2 days in another 1/3 and finally peppers or soybeans in the final section (Yes, the ones that take a day!). This way, when the peppers ripen – you can plant more. The next day when the level 2 Items ripen (Just before the newly replaced crops that take 1 day) you can harvest both of them, and plant twice as many peppers/peas. And on the final day you harvest the entire farm. This leads to good reaping of Exp and a good amount of money from all the harvesting.

Planting an entire farm of 1 seed can become tedious when getting to the harvest. With relation to the previous paragraph – you could stagger the harvesting/plough/planting. With 2 crops that take 2 days to ripen. Plant them on alternating days so you only ever have to harvest half the farm at once. This way also ensures you get a stead stream of money everyday in case you do spend it on extra Exp like buildings, trees Etc.

When money doesn’t become an issue (Around when you have 125,000+) refer to the quick levelling guide. Also – to get an extra boost in both Exp & money, Refer to the “Assisting” section

TREES

Gifted by friends, you can buy them to give you Exp As well (planted gifted trees does not yield Exp). You can harvest them then for extra money to add to your profits, or you can let them ripen and leave them to make your farm look pretty (What I do).

They are slow by steady income, but can take up lots of space normally along the edge of your farm, or bunched in one corner.

Alternatively you can (Similarly to the plots) buy them for the Exp, sell them, and buy more!

ANIMALS

Animals are a pain. They take up space and they do not gi very much money daily. A Single apple tree is better than 2/3 of the buy-able animals, and draws with the last. Sheep cost 700 coins. In theory, you can buy 2 apple trees and then gain twice as much as you would from 1 sheep! Trees are much better than sheep – it appears.

However, if you find the animals or they are gifted – you may aswell! I would suggest not letting them wander…

Also, helping animals that wander onto your farm can give you a small amount of money. But it is up to you.

Check the bottom of the guide for a Link to a Exp Giving Guide to Animals

ASSISTING

Visiting neighbours farms and pending neighbours is a GREAT way to give yourself a small boost in cash, but Exp as well! You normally get 1 or 5Exp and around 20 Coins. So it is GREAT to visit all your neighbours periodically and collect a small prize :)

You can *Sorta* cheat with assist. If you click the same neighbours farm, and “Help”. Then do it again before the Help box appears (Below) you can assist that farm more than once!

ACHIEVEMENTS

This recent feature is Fantastic for both money and Exp. Although it can cost a rather amount in both Coins and Time to complete some. However, most a relatively easy and reward handsomely with Exp, Coins and a Random Gift.

All of the yellow ribbons are very easy to achieve, and you will get awarded with quite a few ribbons the first time you log into them! Then, you will want to advance to the white, red and blue ribbons in some (Getting more Exp and Gold, and more Free items!)

Good and Easy achievements to receive are:

  • Local Celebrity
  • Good Samaritan
  • Animal Shelter
  • ShutterBug
  • Green Thumb
  • Tree Hugger
  • Not spoiled, Gifted!

GIFTING

Gifting to people is a good way to get them back. You might want to keep a list of you who gift to and who gifts back. Sometimes requesting specific gifts in your status can get a nice flood. Normally – If I get trees, i plant them. If i get animals i sell them for the extra money boost (Small as it may be). You should always try and gift the highest thing you can since they almost always give the best return (Unless someone requests one)

Gifts are also randomly received from doing achievements, and although (Like regular gifts) you do not receive Exp from planting/placing them, they can be sold. Sometimes its best to keep them for future Achievements.

TIPS

  1. Try to Log on Every Day to get a prize from the Raffle!
  2. Estimating the time the plants should be done is good and lets you then harvest and plough efficiently
  3. Try and plant so all plants collide at 1 Big harvest time, giving max Exp and Money!
  4. Doing achievements award money and Exp. Complete them for more!
