Game is Going Live – Get Ready Farmers !

Dear Farmers,

The game is going live soon.  So here is a post about the game play.

The features being launched initially are planting and harvesting crops, picking fruits from trees, feeding animals and collecting the extracts (egg, milk, wool and truffle).

All your assets can be found in the inventory. The animals (cow, goat, sheep, hen, horse and pig) are stored in their corresponding shelters. Remaining assets can be dragged out of the inventory and can be placed anywhere on the farm along with the shelters.

Players can exchange animal extracts (milk, wool, egg and truffle) for game cards.

Cropping

Growing crops need water and seeds. Growing corn requires one bucket of water and one bag of seeds per each square crop land. Corn can be harvested once it is fully grown which takes 36 hours.

Notes:

  • Harvested crops are automatically moved to barn.
  • Cropping can’t be done for crops kept for trading.

Grinding

Crops need to be grinded to make feed for the animals. Clicking on the mill button will pop up the available mills with wait time required for each. Selecting the option starts the grinding and the fee is deducted from your account.  Once the time elapse the crops are grinded and is ready to be fed to animals.

Feeding

All animals will be locked in their respective shelters and need to fed once in 24 hours.

Animal stats

Every animal will have 3 status bars which by default will have values:

  • Power 30%
  • Strength 40%
  • Health 100%

Factors affecting stats

The stats depend on how players take care of their animals. Daily feeding adds 0.25 to strength, power bar and health bars.

Skipping feeding causes reduction in stats as follows

  • Health 10%
  • Strength 25%
  • Power 50%

Notes:

  • Every Sunday the animal needs to be fed with fruit feed. Failure can lead to reduction in all bars by half.
  • Animals don’t produce extracts if the health falls below 80%.
  • The animal is considered dead when the health falls below 11%.

Well

Players having well in their farm will get one bucket of water every hour. This can either be used in your farm or sold in the market.

Lake

Players having lake in their farm will get unlimited water for their crops. They will also get 20 buckets of water per day which can either be used to water trees or can be sold in the market.
