We’re brainstorming new ideas for FarmVille and need your help!


By Andrew Bell, Executive Producer, FarmVille





Over the last few weeks, we’ve had a lot of fun working hand-in-hand with everyone in the Dirt Farmer community to get closer to what matters most to our loyal FarmVille players. Hopefully, you’ve had a chance to check out the interview with Heather Sinclair, our fearless general manager, or the really fun trip down FarmVille memory lane with Mark Skaggs. We’re most proud of the recent changes we kicked off as a result of your feedback, but we’re not stopping there.




We make changes and improvements to FarmVille on a daily basis, but once every few months we do something special. We set aside time where anyone on the team can pitch in and work on a new idea. It’s our chance to empower everyone on the team to think outside the box be super creative.



Here’s how it works:



  • Teams break up into small groups and take two days to work on a new improvement to FarmVille.


  • We like to keep rules and constraints light so people can let their creativity shine, but there are just two guidelines:



    1. Ideas must be a feature for FarmVille (no new games)


    2. Fit into the event’s specific theme




  • This is where you guys come in. The theme for this year is “We’re listening” and in the spirit of listening, we’re opening up the ideas for the Dirt Farmer community to vote!




When we host the event, we’ll have a Dirt Farmer staff member watch each presentation and give their real-time feedback. Next week, after our team meets to review the ideas, we’ll share them with the Dirt Farmer community for voting.


And speaking of listening, let us know any FarmVille questions, thoughts or ideas in the comments below. Please note that all comments and feedback are public and subject to Zynga terms of service. In short that means the company is free to use any of your input without restriction, which is great because we want to consider as many good ideas as possible.

  1. It would be nice to do something more with the Hanging Gardens. It's just there unless I'm missing something. There's not very much we can do with it in terms of farming.

    1. Or the useless thousands of spades you collect after you have reached the end...they need to create a market to spend those and make the farm an asset.

      Delete
    2. agreed, I only use it to harvest the instant grows once a week.

      Delete
    3. I collect my instagrow weekly, but I do have some animals and trees there. I would like to do something with the shovels too - there are so many of them and they continue to collect.

      Delete
  2. I am willing to PAY FARM CASH for a NURSERY BARN. Or some kind of building like it that way you can grow up the foals and calfs again. 30 and up FC to grow up one animal is just too much for me as I am on a Disability income. This game is a great comfort and enjoyment to me. Thanks

    2. i think they should bring back the nursrey barn but improve it a bit like add fawn and zebra foals for example.

      Delete
  3. While you give us a lot of wonderful prizes and for that I am happy however I have no room to put them anywhere. We need coin expansions on some of the older farms from Jade Falls till today. I don't recall any coin expansions given for Enchanted Glen and with out some coin expansions all of those farms are useless Jade Falls-today's farms.
    I also used to be oh so happy about the trees and could not wait until the new trees came out every week...now I could care less and have given up even trying to keep up with the trees. Even if I could keep up I have no place to put them...see above You have taken all the joy out of anticipating new trees once a week. You have also taken the joy of decorating away with no space to do anything on.

    1. How right you are! I would like to see more coin expansions because I have so much in storage,I can't use, because of of all the items being added and nowhere to put them. I refuse to pay fc for a few inches more of room.

      Delete
    2. use the orchards for the trees. I am getting a lot of new trees from seedlings. My problem is too many seedlings. With some of these trees I sell them off because I have too many of them. The choice is yours.

      Delete
    3. Agreed. A better,more efficient way to load the seedslings would be great. Takes toooo long to load the seed bed. I have around 75 orchards and still need more storage and less new stuff as we cannot keep up. And agree that decorating is no longer an option as all farms stay full of needed items. The holly bright farm is tooooo small and making the animals is impossible without making parts and the bushels are a nightmare to gain. Stuck again.

      Delete
    4. i agree completely about coin expansions. i use some of the older farms for 'special themes' i've my own creation. i.e., i use ENCHANTED GLEN for a 'spring themed farm'......i have a ton of stuff to use there...but no room. even if i don't use the land to farm!!!!!

      Delete
    5. I would just be happy if there was a sell all button on my orchards..so that after I master a tree I can quickly empy my orchards for new trees without having to remove each tree separately and sell it.

      Delete
    6. Rally Mama, I have learned to remove the tress, then add them to storage. You can sell all of them at once in storage.

      Delete
    7. Rally Mama...I agree and one for the animal pens as well....Farmer Lynny I do that too....but selling them straight out of the pen would be much quicker and with so many farms to manage....anything to help save time means you can do more and spend more.

      Delete
    8. Trees use to be one of the most wanted items, even when claiming from the feed, By making one seeding produce 5 trees that has helped with having as many as 300 neighbors to share with. The topic of too many trees has already been brought up. So many trees introduced every few days has taken the fun & excitement out of them. I use to spend a lot more farm cash, it's saved me from spending because a tree is old hat in a day or two at most. Then to sell what cost farm cash most give us a few coins when sold. If the game were to go back to new trees once a week players would be excited again. I agree with the seedling situation suggested here, I just harvested 10 orchards all 7 seedlings I received I sold. I keep my old trees b/c they produce needed bushels for the crafting. The idea that brought me here was to add the time it takes to craft all goods and items in all our buildings to be listed where the recipes, along with what's needed & the amount of bushels. All crafting buildings having craft times listed would be helpful. Remembering the times is unlikely with the number of recipes per building. Lastly a portion of coin expansions a must otherwise my farms will never all be active due to affordability to expand. Especially when we sell items only coins are given, if some items sold for cash or coins, that would be an alternative to changing market items and expansions to coins.

  4. I'm with Rob T. that would definitely make things better!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I agree with everyone here and i would also like the nursery barn to be back for coins, and give us more foals and calves to grow up to be what they should be.. also i know a lot of people have millions of coins and would be nice to put more animals for coins or grow the babies up for coins have the choice to grow up with farm cash or coins.... we need coin expansations for all older farms, and if you's wont then give us a way to collect, farm ville cash, not all of us are made of money, i cant afford it i am a mother with three kids and a husband... its a game so you's should help us players like you's more and listen to us, thanks i hope to see some of these or all of these changes happen

  6. i would like to see a "dial up" combine. I am helping my sister while she is away to do her farming. and it takes so long to count the crops to plant. why cant the combine have a place to input "150 carrot plots" or 300 lupin whatever plots"? One would think with so many things to do on farmville that you would be able to stream line the process so that success would be easier to attain for all not just a few. Same with finding bushels. why is there no search bar? Thanks for listening.

    3. I would like to be able to plant by how many bushels I need too. Plant enough crops to get xx bushels, not just xx plots.

  7. can you add more themed dream cloud unicorn babies please and let us buy them with coins instead cash please?

  8. i think you should make a christmas theme quest for toy themed prizes that would be so cool

  9. Two bunny hutches on each farm --- just like the chicken coops.

  10. Not sure if its been suggested yet - but would love to see if any gifts in my inbox are things that are already mastered. After growing babies in the baby nursery they get sent into our giftbox. You have to place on farm first to see if its an old one we have already mastered before knowing if we want to sell it or not. Same with trees grown in the seedling nurseries.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with this! Would save so much time if we could see if animals and trees were mastered from within the gift box.

      Delete
    2. I too agree but would also like to see a 2 or 3 letter indication beside locked items/animals to indicate where they can be used on ALL farms including the current farm you are farming on instead of disappearing if you are on the farm the animal(s) or item(s) to which they are locked.

      Example: EV, WWL, HM, ENG, MED etc.

      Thanks ya'll!

      Delete
    3. Good idea on showing in your gift box if animals or trees are mastered.

      Delete
  11. I agree with updating the dream unicorns, along with extinct animals, and the wish unicorns and others like that. Also, the new sprinkler system costs way too much FC to expand the plots to water. On a 600 plot farm (or greater) takes forever!! So to expand the combine to water would be awesome!!! Also to update the time travel to other prizes as well as the mystery game!! I loved to play all of those but now they just sit there!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree on using the combine to include watering plots. That is a really good idea. Or at least be able to increase the plot size of the sprinkler. 4 at a time is just too little and takes so much time. Also you keep using the popup to water your plants even if there isn't anything planted. Very annoying.

  13. Read many good comments here. of course, Rob has made some really great suggestions. I do like the colorful outlandish themeing that has come into play. The coins are a challenge. not much to spend them on, realistically. For farm cash, is there a way to work a few say 3 into quests, as a reward? Fcash seems to be the wanted/needed item, but without real cash to spend, limits some. I would also like to see if there is a way to enable a search all feature. farms. like to locate a specific item. Somewhat like the dog, but with the capabilities of checking all farms, for that specific item? And, while I am dreaming away, is there a feature sort of along the same line that could show or tell us what is in crafting barns a crossed all farms? Possible would need it's own feature, I guess. Like I would have some sort of building I could go in and check these things I ask for on all farms, like an information central nervous system? does that make sense?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Along those same lines, it would be nice to have a place to see what crops are on what farms. I go crazy sometimes searching farms trying to find where I planted that crop that I now need. For a while I kept a word file on my desktop with the info but it was hard to keep it up to date.

      Delete
    2. Oooh, I would love to do an all farms search instead of having to visit each farm to find a particular animal or crop!

      Delete
  14. It would REALLY help to have some kind of crop counter, some of our farms are large and we'd like to plant say...100 of this kind and 100 of that kind etc. Even for the smaller farms we don't know how many plots we have!! PLEASE CONSIDER THIS FEATURE! Tysm for your time <3

    ReplyDelete
  15. Melanie you use the search dog...type in what you have planted and it tells you how many crops you have (that's if you planted all corn for example)

    ReplyDelete
  16. First of all, thank you for this opportunity to be heard! With that being said, I have a couple suggestions that would help me as a daily player ... some possibly a repeat.
    - Fix what is not working or end it. I am competitive and work towards mastering all crops, trees, etc. (Gave up on animals due to so many that I don't even care now). You create masteries but the signs are the problem. I have no place to put fish signs, dairy signs, organic crop signs and the Craftshop signs are a total joke! We either do not get the proper sign (I have a ton of Ice Horse signs given instead) or there is no sign at all. And up until a few weeks ago, I mastered all but a few of the items that have come out, but now, it is ridiculous with items in there that I've already mastered. Why would I or others want to re-master them especially at 90 bushels per item? My suggestion is that since it is a Craftshop ... allow us to craft special items (even older ones for those that are newer players) without mastery attached to it. That way we can craft an animal and then master it, or a deco, or even parts as needed and the mastery signs or frustration in attempting to make more than one will not be a problem.
    - Storage cellar capacity needs to be upped. Farmville has released over 4,000 trees! Not to mention the thousands of animals that we want to save but lags the farm when all placed on the ground. Plus all of the other items and holiday stuff we need to store.
    - Revisit the Pizza Shop crops please. The harvest times are short and you need hundreds of thousands for mastery. Fuel is an issue with so many farms and a limit on obtaining it, not to mention the time it takes to plant a large farm, clicking away, only to turn around and harvest it. Set the harvest times longer and the amounts shorter so that more can consider growing them.
    This is just a thought I have ...I know that there is a business end to this game... that it costs money ... I get that, but, I feel if you slowed the amount of what you put out, you would get more wanting to buy. We honestly used to look forward to the Market Updates. We were excited when a new tree or trees came out and we would all go work them in our orchards to share with others. I used to buy and collect all of the horses. Now, with so many that come out, too many to even choose from so I quit buying them like I once did. You have taken away the anticipation and the excitement that Farmville used to be. We would look forward to the Countdowns, Market Updates, New Crops, Themed Items, etc... now, it is a never ending pace (for those of us addicted and competitive)... The thoughts now are oh my gosh, I need to preplant, premake, get a ton of clicks for quests, countdowns, parts, this and that and no breathing space.
    I don't want to sound all negative. I love Farmville and have a lot of time and money invested into the game ... but even for a player like myself, it is starting to overtake my real life with so much to do. (Yes, I know I have a choice, but with so much invested in the game, it is difficult to not do all of the quests etc). It would also be nice to give all of Farmville a break during the actual holidays, ie., no quests for a week. =) Thank you again!

    1. I agree about the pizza crops. The coins earned needs to be fixed because they are currently a losing proposition and take up too much fuel. The short times are truly painful and I prefer longer times. I have a life!!

  17. I would like it if we had an icon we could go to on our farms and it would bring up the activity on ALL of the other farms, ie. crops time left, orchards ready, recipes, etc. I know it's a lot to ask for! :) Oh and I would love to see some flight grows??? I just ran out. :( It would be nice to offer them in the leaderships or a game not for farm cash! THANK YOU!

  18. 1- Unlock mastery signs- so we dont have to build em all on each farm and take up more room. 2- make chicken coops easier to find the chickens and remove once mastered 3- in orchards/ groves give a delete button option inside (like the buy option) so we can empty them easier 4- let us have more than one seedling nursery on a farm or larger- and a way to add seedlings instead of 1 by 1 .

  19. Expand bushel exchange to 5 bushels one of the best aids on farmville i have ever had

    2. I'm all for this as well. I use the bushel exchange daily

  20. Please stop bringing in barns for crafting like wool, dairy, apothecary,sweet shop etc and linking them to quests, it is far too time consuming and a lot of players refuse to do quests because of this, it seems every new thing you put into a farm is carried to the point of being repetitive and we want the game to be fun and not so much like hard work, love farmville but these crafting barns are becoming a nightmare, in the Atlantis quest that just finished we had to make 5 things that took 12 hours each and before we could do that we had to make the other part which was also lengthy so please think outside the box and make our quests enjoyable and definately no more crafting barns please

    Replies
    1. I actually like the added challenge of the crafting buildings in the quests - but I have to say I was unable to beat Atlantis because the challenge was really time loaded.

  21. Also please bring back our pictures when posting trees or asking for parts as the last month or so it seems more and more of the pictures are omitted

  22. A-Z search when getting a bushel.

    Harvest "ALL FARMS" option

  24. I've always wanted the ability to share unwanted or unused gifts with my neighbours.

  25. I would like a more advanced option for "Store". For example, those mastery signs (ugh) which take up space in my gift box so I can't claim any eggs ;) please have an option to store them directly TO the mastery billboard. Less steps to clearing out the gift box. Thanks!

  26. We need fuel. We need fuel. We need fuel!!!!!! Please make it possible to harvest more than 4 fuels per day. More like 25 to 50 would be best. After all, we have lots of crops to grow. PLEASE, we need MORE fuel!! Thank you!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please simplify the crafts such as Elite Horses, Yarn Barn, Dairy, Apothecary, etc. It's way TOO MUCH CLICKING to find what items make what!!! Please put it all on one or two pages if possible. You've all done a great job with the way the crafts look but using them and making items is a major pain. Remember, KISS! I mean that in a good way, lol. Thanks so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks so much for doing this Andrew. I know you all have to strike a balance between bringing us new Farms or not..... I personally love the new Farms and get very excited for them and always go "early access". I also love the "Fantasy" Farms and look forward to seeing what the Farmville Team comes up with. I would love to see a CIRCUS Farm .... have a "Big Top" as the Centerpiece... have clowns, jugglers, acrobats, lions, tigers, bears, etc ...and we could grow Crops like Funnel cakes, Corn Dogs, Cotton Candy, etc. Another idea I like for the Winter ...is a Snowman Building feature ...maybe collect snowballs from Neighbors to build your Snowman ...then be able to customize him with hats, scarves, decorations that we choose. Also, I hope to see us be able to CRAFT the Expansion Parts needed to upgrade the self-contained" buildings ...like the Apothecary! Oh, and of course Sasquatch Breeding! Thanks again Andrew ...

  29. Please find a different place to put that little box that pops up on the lower left hand side of the screen when someone likes or makes a comment on your post. I keep hitting it whenever I'm doing something like farming, checking the quests icons or using the Hollybright Park to collect the water. It takes me out of my farm and i have to reload UGH!!!!!

  30. I used to love harvesting my orchards but have quit a long time ago once the red "x" was removed from the seedling pop-ups, and replaced with a checkmark for sharing.

    My suggestion is to get rid of the checkmark-for-sharing and go back to red 'x' on the pop-ups. All of them. The game is so bloated and takes its sweet time that we shouldn't have to fuss with it. It drives me up the wall when the game lags and it doesn't even register me unchecking it a few times.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would like to see more items available for coin purchasing, particularly for farm expansions. Thanks for a great game, love it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. A suggestion for the giftbox: Please make it easier to delete things. Getting rid of those mastery signs can take 45 minutes. If there was a little checkbox in the corner of each item in the giftbox that says delete and we could check all the boxed that would be fantastic.
    Also in the giftbox, It says which farm something goes on unless you're on that farm and that's when you need to know to use it there. It's pretty confusing trying to figure out all those farms and where you put each tree and animal.
    Thanks for asking and reading

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with both suggestions.
      Mastery signs are a right pain in the butt. Do we really want them? If people do want them, can't they go directly to the billboards? Why take up precious gift box space, and take SO LONG to sell from the gift box.
      When you've got many pages of things you want to sort through in the gift box, it's a pain that when you sell something it the screen goes back to where something was last used, rather than where you just sold from. You then have to travel through all the pages again to get back to where you are selling from.
      And yes, I find I have to memorise what trees and animals are locked to a farm before going to that farm to use them, so if it still said what farm it was locked to that would be really helpful.

  33. When will you be expanding the baby play pens to 100 or better yet 200 so that we have somewhere to put all the foals that are coming out by the dozens every week and if you like to collect them, you have to have somewhere to store them. 40 in a pen is not nearly enough, all the other buildings are at least 80....get this fixed so that we can clean up our farms please...us paying players want this.

  34. can you make a animal building to make all foals into their adult counterparts without paying farmcash please
    and can you cut out the prices on the Hawaiian paradise farm exansion on coconuts since it cost way too much coconuts please?!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have to second what Courage1 said, all the way. Please get rid of the coconuts and jade coins (or others of their ilk) coins are just fine, thanks. What a brilliant idea! Yes, yes, please, a special stable to put foals in so they grow up to be their adult counterparts (make it for coins or craft things if you must, NOT CASH, please). My suggestion is this, can we make the non-coin tractors, harvesters etc, something you can gift to friends? Several times friends have said they had the cash, and would be happy to send me one, (or I've wanted to send one to a friend) but it's not possible. Thank you.

  36. I Love Teresa Smiths idea about horses. also to add to her's,we should be able to buy the stable and cow barns again. i like those better than the paddocks and pastures.
    i also like the idea of a western ranch that Arta Tipsword suggested.
    My next suggestion would be...Not so many quests going at once,and make the ones you do have where you grow things,not craft them. i don't do much crafting. so i don't get the quests done.
    I think any farm that has been out longer than say 6 - 8 months,should have all coin expansions.
    Bring back some way to earn FC,maybe even in some kind of thing where you have to get so many of something to get so much FC.
    We need more things to buy for coins,,I would like to see an all coin farm,everything in/for it expansions and all is for coins only.
    Lastly,i would like it if there were no locked animals. I am a horse breeder (with stables) on home farm. and there are a lot i can not breed this way because they are locked. Thank you for listening. :)

    1. i would like to add a couple things. make everything in giftbox regiftable,and 1 button to use or sell all. also be able to regift more in 1 day than 3 times. i always end up selling to much like animals that someone else may want. and more specific on what and where the things in GB are used would be helpful. Plus,with all the new farms we have gotten,more storage. maybe different colored barns for different things,,,such as,red barn for animals,blue barn for decorations,green for trees and so on, but all barns should be for coins and no limit on how many of each kind you have on each farm.
      and last but NOT least. Please fix the requests thing. i can receive requests but i can very seldom send any in return. been this way for almost a year now. Thank you and Dirt for reading. Love this game. :)

  37. Please give us the option of listing craft goods from high to low price or low to high price when we are buying!...we need lots of fuel, but it takes SO LONG to click through 100 neighbors' goods to get to the higher priced stuff!

  38. Since we have numerous farms to take care of, can we please get a way to have a list of all farms and be able to tell what crops are planted on which farms, it takes far too much time to travel from farm to farm, and its hard to remember what crops are planted where. Also we need more things available for coins vs. FarmCash. We need more expansions available with coins. Its virtually impossible to finsih quests with limited space on the farms.

  39. FV has a great opportunity with Hanging Gardens. Once completed the shovels just pile up. The shovels should convert to something of value such as;making the Instagrow Fountain speed up, or additional bushels or turn into fuel.

  40. Is there a solution for the buy bushels buttons in craftshops , because you lose cash if you share they are right behind the share buttons, i have lost cash by accidently hit them, maybe they can ask for confirmation if you realy want to buy that bushel.

  41. Zynga could have more challenges on the leaderboard challenges. A tab 4, 5, 6...different challenges. Some of the current ones are too easy. For example, the weekly grow and harvest crops set at 6,000. I can get 6,000 crops by planting on just 3 farms. Its too easy. If its going to be a challenge, set the weekly crop level at say 25,000. As we increase in farms, there has been no increase in the amount of crops to harvest. At least up the number as you increase the number of farms...

  42. Why can we not have mastery stars listed in the giftbox and storage and pens? Here is the current situation. I have say, for the sake of argument, 60 foals in a baby playpen. 16 of them show 3 stars. But, I have to take each one of those foals and place them on my farm to remove them from the pen. Then, I have to delete the foal. Why not just have a sell button from the pen? Now, lets say I have 12 pages of foals in my giftbox. I cant see their mastery stars so once again, I have to place the foal on my farm, click it to see how many stars it has, and if its not a 3 starred foal, I can then place it in my baby playpen. If mastery stars were located in my giftbox or storage, I could tell its got 3 stars and just sell it from there. It just makes more sense to have mastery stars in the giftbox and storage and it makes more sense to have a sell button so that the item does not have to be placed on the farm in order to remove it.

  43. When going into the winery, bakery or spa and going into the get goods section, why not have a desending or asending button? For me, I want to select the highest level good so that I can convert that item to more fuel. However, since the order is from the lowest to highest, I have to click perhaps 30 times just to get to the highest available good for that neighbor. If I could default from the highest to the lowest, I could click but one time to get the get goods. Wouldnt that make more sense? When I take get goods from 100 neighbors and have to click 20 times on each to get to their highest level good, then its easy to see that I may have to click 2,000 times or more to get those highest level goods that I desire. As it is, it's a real turn off to get goods from neighbors...

  44. I would love to see a new storage building for items such as fertilizer, instant grow, arborists, farm hands, and any thing related to maintaining our farms. That would free up precious gift box space. And let's face it, with all of the quest rewards and voting gifts etc... we can use every bit of space we can get

  45. It would be most helpful if we had a feature that will allow us to see a list of ALL crops growing on ALL farms at all times, and the number planted, and the time left to harvest. This way, we will more easily be able to remember what crops we planted on which farm and can get back to them in time before they wither. In the same manner, it would also be useful if the search dog could look up ANY item on any farm and let us know where it is instead of searching only the current farm we are on.

  46. Is this still being checked by anyone from Zynga? My suggestion is a small one but a very helpful one to help with leveling goods for quests or mastery. In our duck ponds we are able to feature animals, well how about in our selling goods we can feature anywhere from 1-3 goods that we want priority selling on. The month long goods always require leveling of a new good and would love to help all my neighbours do this by buying their goods but it takes forever to slog through all their goods going slow enough that I don't miss the item i am looking for. If they were able to pick a featured item ( think of it like a kmart blue light special LOL) It would be featured first in the queue ( and possibly put a highlighted box on it) so people know " hey these are the items this person really wants sold".

  47. There is 2 things I'd like to see happen. 1st, since your'e not stopping adding new farms, I'd like to see the gift box "UNLIMITED" !!!!! And 2nd, I'd like to see you have the option of buying FV cash at least 3 times a year and boost it up to 50 % off. Oh 1 more thing, "PLEASE STOP" with sooooo much crafting !!!!!. I quit doing the quests because of it.

  48. I've commented on a few of the above suggestions with "replies". But another few things that would be good:
    1. When we hover over a market stall, it says what the crop is. Can it also say how long it is open for? That would make it so much easier to choose which one to close, rather than to check within each. I like to leave the most useful bushels available to friends, taking into account how long a stall is open. The feature where it asks you if you want to close the stall with the shortest time (when harvesting) doesn't work: when returning to the farm, the replaced stall always returns to the initial crop within it, and the time it's open, so it loses out on both time and changing bushels.
    2. I haven't been able to see all my neighbours in the market for years. It seems like I only see around 30 of my original (old) neighbours. Many of them are no longer playing. I can add new neighbours, but I can't see them to get bushels from them or buy their goods. Consequently I have to grow ALL the bushels I need, as I have next to no one available to collect from. However, I notice that usually a newly added neighbour is able to get bushels from me, from the display of who has bought from me. So why can't I get from them?? Maybe the market should be showing bushels and goods from all FRIENDS (not neighbours), if the neighbour situation doesn't work.
    3. Ability to regift ALL items in the giftbox, without limits would help. Even animals and trees, decorations. What a waste to sell mastered animals and trees, when friends could use them. And I don't want decorations, so regifting could be nice for my friends who would use them.
    4. My gift box is out of control. An earlier suggestion above about a check box for choosing items to delete would be very helpful. As would the suggestion about showing mastery within the giftbox, to aid what animal/tree to sell. A three item per day share is ridiculous. Why limit it at all? How can I productively sell everything, when things need selling one at a time, and if you are selling several pages away from items last used, the gift box screen returns to several pages from where you were at time of selling.
    5. Using seedlings from the giftbox: please make it like using special delivery boxes etc, where you don't have to go back into the giftbox each time to use one, but just keep clicking to use a reducing number available. This would aid tremendously in placing them all into seedling nurseries or onto the farm.

  49. Bring back the Southwest adobe and pueblo buildings and items. Or a homestead on the prairie or anything (old) west. I have nothing with riviera greece or hanging gardens and if I go there it is not to work on a farm.

  50. add a "use all or a drop arrow selector" to the xp that we get from stable, ty

  52. since shockwave crashes so often, how about possibly using something such as unity player that caches it's own game items, ect. That way the whole farm would already be in play when you log on to the farm. You wouldn't have to wait for each and every item to load to begin play. Also, it would stop the shockwave crashes......

  53. My storage is out of control. Please please give us a way to easily get rid of things we have mastered! If we could help our friends with giving to them or heck just selling ll at once and yes an easy way to see our mastery on the items. Thank you for all your help!

  54. I'd like to have the option to use the turbo when I want to - not have it automatically checked. Too many times I've wasted a turbo because I was't paying attention.

  55. Hello,
    There are all sorts of farms now .. but why the heck nobody thougth about a swiss farm? It's the country where there are most cows per habitant, they have their famous swiss cheese (no, the one you get in the states has nothing to do with a real Emmenthal ;) ) The milk and it's famous chocolate .. Would be an idea and I would love to farm up in the mountains :p

  56. Hi there! I would like to propose that feed, water, and mystery eggs not count as part of gift box count. I would also like to see the mystery eggs being able to be opened despite the amount in gift box. This causes many wasted posts and it really gets my well, GOAT! Rofl

  57. As far as a farm theme, I think that a nod toward Alice in Wonderland would be a great theme! Lots to work with there in all categories including animals and treats. The OZ themed nod was really refreshing, I thank you for doing it!

    As for Listening theme how about Santa theme for WWL revisit or in a nod to Casey Kasem - how about a Musical theme with the appropriate music, costumes, crops, treats?

    Thanks for your ear time!

  60. As far as a farm theme how about a Gnome Garden...crops could be exotic plants all flowers maybe??...and maybe making exotic gnome homes...we could even transfer our gnomes there!!!

  61. How about a "throwback" leaderboard challenge or something similar where we get the chance to plant some of the older LE crops. I love crop mastery and would love the chance to plant some of the ones that were out before I started playing (or at least started playing for mastery) or just put the crops back in the market under a throwback theme (even the cash ones I'll pay) I'm not picky

  62. I got a simple one. How about WE have to turn the turbo on instead of it automatically being on. So tired of going to harvest and not meaning to use my turbos.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Profound request. This is exactly what is experienced - "need to turn the turbo on instead of it automatically being on" - when fewer than 3 turbos are remaining. But the need should be in all instances of turbo use. Of course, one can understand that the "default" must be set to OFF if fewer than 3 turbos remain. If not, the Combine tool would not be usable. But having the default set to "ON" also produces a dilemma when fuel is too short in supply to complete the entire operation when using the Combine tool in combination with the turbo. So, setting the default to OFF is really a need that should be handled in order to solve problems of FarmVille! Please do set the default of turbo presence to OFF. Thank you.

  63. I am a loyal FV player and have been around since the beginning. I would love to see a " New Orleans" Farm. It would feature a Mardi Gras theme with the architectural buildings of that area. Floats and colorful beads, etc. You got the picture!!! Also I think that the "GIFT BOX" should be made "UNLIMITED". That would help a lot of players. Thanks for your time.

  64. Add 2 click spots to the BUSHEL SWAP (along the top or bottom) and the MARKET: "Alphabetical" and "Letter Specific" (or some other more appropriate titles), so instead of having to run through the entire crop list to get to Yellow Daffodils, you could click on "Letter Specific" then an alphabet would appear, and you would click on a letter ("Y", for instance) and the game would sort out all the crops beginning with that letter and those crop names would show up (Like Yellow Daffodils, Yellow Toadstools, etc.).

  65. I really love fv am addicted and would love when a new farm comes out that it is a robot theme. Would be so cool. I know people complain about all the quests and thinks to make and do but that is part of the game and if there are those that don't like it then Don't play simple as that. I think of 1 thing that is senseless is the mastery signs as you have a mastery in your item list so please no signs. I sell mine as they are useless. I have all the wineries and such as I can to craft things even have some in sunflower meadows and hanging gardens. The game is fun and a challenge to me so don't change a thing. All I can say to people is if you don't like it and complain all the time. there is a block and delete

  66. I would like to have the ability to see a list of all items (Deco, Animals and Trees) on each farm. So that I can delete or sell the excess. The list should be able to print out so I can check each farm for multiple items. Would also like a farm that has no quest at all and can expand with coins only. This farm cannot grow crops but is used for decoration only. Add trees, animals and building and other deco items. Deco items that locked to only one farm should be able to go to this additional farm to create a FV city/town.

  67. I would like to see a feature to remove mastered animals from pens similar to the orchards. Having to re-open the pen and remove them one by one is EXTREMELY time consuming, especially in the baby playpens. OR...put a feature inside BOTH the orchards and the animal pens to sell, remove or store.

  68. I would like to have UNLIMITED storage! So many farms and things we need and I am locked up now and a VIP! How can I play now? It makes no sense to limit our gift box anymore!

    Please let's do this! Unlock and Unlimit!

    Thank you!

  70. One really simple thing - could the Quest Manager stay open until you close it! If I have 5 or 6 quests running where all I have to do is request items (as I do at the moment) I have to open the Quest Manager, Open the first Quest, request the items, close the first Quest, re-open the Quest Manager, open the second quest, close the second quest, re-open the quest manager.... etc etc! It would be better if it was Open the Quest Manager, Open the first quest, request, close the first quest, open the second Quest, request, close the second quest .... etc, until done, and THEN close the Quest Manager!

    Just My 2¢ worth!

  71. my friends and I were talking about ideas for farms and we thought an Easter farm and independence day farms would be really cool like for easter lots of bunny ducks and candy stuff and eggs and for the 4th of july one lots of firework and USA red white and blue items instead of repeating Halloween and winter farms.just suggestions we thought those would be very creative and so many possibilities.Also more sales on Farmcash.I don't know if this feedback will go anywhere but thought I would try here.I love decorating and I thought they would be new and different.My friends agree.

  72. Here's something that has bugged me for a long time. When you are farming, the colour of the plowed field is too much the same as the colour of the freshly planted field, so you can't always see easily where you have planted, and where you haven't. If the seeds are large it is OK as it is, but that is not always the case. If you made the ground colour of all the freshly planted crops a darker brown (like a chocolate colour) it would be much easier to see where you have planted!

    Another thing is the original (white) chicken. When you buy a new Chicken Coop, there is always one in the coop when you get it. At the moment it is Number 272 and you can't search for it in the Search box, because it is just called Chicken, so you have to page all the way through 68 pages to get it out!. You have the same problem finding them on your farm using the search dog - Chicken, on its own, is too generic and you can't bring it up. Would it be possible to rename it "White Chicken" or "Original Chicken" or "Home Farm Chicken"? Anything to make it searchable!

    Just Another 2¢ worth!

  73. Don't sure If I have over looked this one but can you fix it to where the animal pens automatically keep opening as you remove the animals, Like the gift box does?

  74. Not sure if this is mentioned or not but how about instead of concentrating on putting new farms out ( a total of i think 25 now) how about working with doing something on the farms we have already? the game used to be fun and only take a little bit to work on now it's like a full time job just to hit each farm! A lot of folks i am sure of are still trying to work on beating a farm to get the licenses but come on guys no more farms! that is getting out of hand actually.

  75. Is there ever going to be a billboard for the items we make in the dairy, yarn barn, apothecary etc. They do not fit anywhere.
    Also give us a use for those massive crops we plant for the Leaderboard each week like a special limited time critter or something. As it is i just have to sell those crops from the market to make room in there

  76. And another thing: i also agree with someone back in the thread that getting saplings out of the gift box should not be so hard. A 'Use All' feature on the saplings would solve that real quickly

  78. How about something that enables us to harvest all our crops at once.

  79. Another idea....to be able to store our entire farm.....that way we can rearrange it or put items on other farms. I would like to put all my trees and animals on one farm then plant crops on the other. In other words, I would like to have my trees, animals and other things on the english country side farm and use my home farm for crops. It will take a long time to do so I have been putting it off.

  80. I would like to see another section to Hanging Gardens with super fertilizer as the top quest. Then people could use all those trough we have been harvesting
