    Heyhey Big Farmers,

    last week's update brought a lot of changes, so it's time to let that sink and just add some small additions while working on the next big thing.
    Here are the changes in this week's small update:

    New: Achievements focusing on the gourmet farm

    We are going to introduce 2 new gourmet farm themed sticker packs, including 7 new regular and one new secret achievement as well as new rewards.

    Other changes and bugfixes

    • There will now be tooltips on ship slot items, so you can see how many of those you still have in storage
    • Prime Time interfaces have been reworked to make all conditions more clear
    • Many smaller and bigger bugs have been squatted!

    This update is expected to take place between 09:00am and 11:00am CEST and you may discuss i…

    Hello Big Farmers,

    This week will bring a lot of informative, challenging, decorative and fun changes to your farms.
    Let's have a look:

    New: permanent library boosters for the gourmet farm and an additional booster for your main farm

    Have you ever wondered why there is no wildflower booster book? Well, since wildflowers have been grown in increasing numbers lately (thanks to the mission system) we decided it's now time to also increase your basic knowledge on wildflower growing.

    But that is not all! We are also going to introduce a whole new section in the library that will be dedicated to your gourmet farm and it's products. Interested in new bakery trends and feed improvements for your donkeys, ducks and goats? Take a look at the all new boos…

    Hey everyone,

    this week's update will be a calm one - we're mostly working on as many bugfixes as we can possibly fit in, and a lot of small changes to the backend system.

    The ship - Changes

    The amount of products you already have in your storage will now be shown within the ship's window, so you will have a much easier time calculating for the next shipment. This will be shown as a tool tip for each product.

    Tutorial - Changes

    Loading times for new players that didn't finish the tutorial yet should be much better now. We also tweaked some task content during the tutorial.

    Next week though, there will be a lot of stuff that you might like Let me just tease you with one word: Decorations!

    Have fun,
    your Big Farm team.

    Ahoy, me Big Farm mateys,

    Yarrrr, what is that showing up on the horizon?
    Is it a boat, is it a plane or is it Superman fighting a giant monster shark? Oh.. it actually is a boat! And it's docking at our harbor!

    New Feature: The Ship v1

    This time, we introduce something you all have been waiting for - the first feature of the new environment: the ship.
    Captain Barnacle and his baby octopus Miss Tentacle are planning to set up some agreement with you to get regular shipments going from your farm.
    The ship will arrive every now and then to pick up some goods you have to deliver. Once a shipment is completed, the ship leaves and you will get a reward.

    Hey everyone,
    here's all the information you'll need for our next update! So, what's going to happen?

    - New: Slide Up Notifications

    We'll introduce a new notification system, which will hopefully help you immensely in the future! Starting with mission notifications to remind you of available missions, the game will give you a small reminder about things that are about to happen.

    We're planning to incorporate many other features in the future, for example to let you know when a coop project begins or ends, without distracting the gameplay too much.
    You will find the reminder right above the mission/research area at the main menu. It will scroll into view, and will disappear after a short while. The gameplay will not be affected, you can just con…

    Hello Big Farmers,

    you've been waiting eagerly to find out what mysterious feature you're going to be able to use your certificates on.
    Now we're gonna reveal it:

    New: Farm Machines

    Have you ever wondered why there were no farm machines in Big Farm?
    Now you get the chance to acquire them and put them in a garage next to your farm. Those farm machines will grant you permanent boosters for your farm. Here are the details:

    • There will be 4 different types of farm machines you can construct, each has a different effect:
      - happiness (gives extra happiness for your main farm)
      - certificate bonus (increases the amount of certificates you get after each mission)
      - reputation bonus (increases the amount of reputation points you get after each mission)
      - worke…

    Hello Big Farmers,

    the next update is going to be a small one again, so we can already start preparations for the new mysterious garage feature. Still there are some things to announce:
    Deletion of inactive player accounts

    Big Farm is getting more and more users every day - in fact we just reached 25 million players!
    Some of these players have not checked their farms for quite some time now and keep other players from using their user names, even though they don't play anymore. New players will now get the chance to claim some of these names: We will do some spring cleaning and - starting with this update - delete all accounts that have been inactive for at least 6 months.

    So if you have a farm idling on another server and haven't visited that…

    Hi all,
    As you may know, the season of eggs, bunnies and chocolate is almost here and this means a new forum event! To keep you in the mood and to restrain you from your furious impulse for chocolate, this event will last until the 21st of April !
    Things will be simple: We want you to paint and customize actual easter eggs!
    That means you’ve got to be creative and take the best possible picture of your customized egg.

    Post your pictures here before the 21st of April (at noon) to enter the contest! We will then select several winners.

    After that, phase 2 of the event starts, but this is a little surprise and you will know more about it really soon. I can just tell you that your eggs will travel quite a lot !

    Here is the set of rules :

    '- 'New: New Exclusive Offer Stages

    Two new alternative deco appearances for the rope lights are coming in!

    Bugfixes and other changes

    • Loading process optimized. The loading order when starting up the game should now allow for faster interaction and less waiting time.

    This is for me to quickly grab codes I might use a lot around here, but any contributor is welcome to them (including changing the style). I'll be adding this stuff to some articles to grab the attention of other editors who may have the information needed or using it for other formatting that I don't want to keep retyping.

    Hey Big Farmers,
    after the gourmet farm was now finally reworked, it's time to implement another change you have all been waiting for.
    Excited? You better be:

    Rework of the mission system
    Due to popular demand, we reworked the way missions work in Big Farm! They will now be available around the clock, and it will be much easier to just join a mission whenever you like to. Also, we put a lot of work into a much better matchmaking system, so you hopefully won't find yourself struggling against much stronger Big Farmers anymore!
    How does it work? Here are the details!

    Signing up for a mission

    • If you sign up for a mission, one of currently 4 mission types will be chosen for you. Which mission type is chosen is random, so you will no longer be able to…

    Hey everyone,
    you were waiting for this one, and now it's here: The Gourmet Farm will change fundamentally, and we have all the information you need to know right here!
    - New: Gourmet Farm Rework

    - Removal of redundant buildings

    As you already know, a lot of new buildings will be added to the Gourmet Farm. For this to work, we will have to remove all buildings that are no longer needed, used or won't be reworked. Of course, you will get all Dollars back you spent for these buildings (and their upgrades). Here's a list of all buildings that will be removed:

    • Garden
    • Almond orchard
    • Bakery
    • Dairy
    • Restaurant

    All decorations, residentials, the cabin, the goat stable and of course the fence and gate will stay, and so will all expansions you already claimed.

    Hey everybody,

    the gourmet farm changes will happen pretty soon. The developers are still working on some tweaks and adjustments, though. Until then... we can show you what will happen next week:

    Changes in regards to farm booster feedback in the user interface

    Until now you could barely see what kinds of boosters were active on your farm and which effect they brought along.
    Now we are going to adjust and add some more elements in the user interface in order to make sure you can see which boosters are active and what their bonus to productions is.
    Upon collecting goods from production sites, you will now have an indicator on the progress bar that shows you that more items are being collected. In production dialogues (e.g. in the mill or the se…

    Hey Big Farmers,

    The gourmet farm changes are coming closer and closer. Until then, we still have some small but nifty changes for you.
    Let's take a look:

    Adjustments to eggs

    As one of the preparation steps for the second farm rework, we will adjust all values connected to eggs.
    From this update on, you will now only produce one fourth of the amount of eggs you produced before, BUT don't worry, you will also receive 4 times the amount of dollars if you sell them. This means your egg-revenues will stay the same, but your barn won't be stuffed as quickly anymore if you collect eggs from your chicken coops.
    Additionally, we will change everything regarding egg-collection:

    • tasks - amount of eggs needed adjusted to one fourth of the former amount

    The Bazaar has opened!
    You know the rapid fire offers from Monica, but now a new vendor will visit your farm and carries even more great offers in his cart!
    Omar Al-Tajer will not only offer Dollars in exchange for gold, but also gives you the opportunity to buy various premium items for a very low price! Their may even be 100% price drops - so keep your eyes open, because you wouldn't wanna miss free stuff, now won't you?
    Similar to Monica, his offers are only viable for a certain amount of time and will then change to the next random offer. You can see the current offer's remaining time at the clock above Omar's head.

    here's the newest information about our next update(s). Lots of stuff coming your way!

    Starting this week (Feb 12):

    - New: Farm Environment (Step 1)
    That's right! You read our post about Big Farm's future, and now Project 2014 is on its way. But even if you're excited, keep in mind that this is only the first step: For now, we will only add the new farm background to the game. It will not yet be usable in any way right now, all the playable features will be added over time.
    Since this is a huge change to the game, we have to enable this feature step by step on different servers. It will first be added to some of the smaller servers to make sure that everything goes well in the update process. All other servers will then follow…

    This picture only shows an unfinished draft, which won't be in the game exactly like this. It will look very similar, though.

    just enough time to squeeze one more update to January - what do we have?

    • The Deco Tower can be opened by clicking on the new building next to your farm
    • You can change floors via a selection on the left side of the new menu
    • At the Deco Tower, you can zoom closer to your decorations than it is possible within the game, so you can check them out in great detail.
    • Decos you don't own yet will only be visible as black shapes
    • If you obtain a new decoration, you can activate it in the Deco Tower by clicking its shape

    Hey, you crafty farmers,

    We Don't care if it's cake, ice cream, soup, roastbeef or pasta, bacon, waffles, eggs, burger or cookies, bacon, breakfast, pizza, sushi or bacon - everything's allowed, as long as the following rules are maintained:

    • The meal has to be associated with the game at first glance.
      Meaning you could for example use the Big Farm logo or a character, or create a whole farm out of the meal.

    New feature: Prime Spending

    Until now you could 'only' get a bonus for purchasing gold, but why should there not be another bonus for spending this gold later on?
    With this update, we will introduce "Prime Spending".
    This feature will give you the chance to gain rewards for spending gold! It works kind of similar to Prime Days, but this time you will not have to fill a water tank to claim your reward. Instead, the…

    These versions will offer you a smaller box with less content but will also require you to purchase less gold in order to get it.

    New: Custom cooperative rejection message

    Cooperative leaders and deputies can now write a small customizable text upon rejecting member applications. Applicants will then know, why their application to your cooperative was rejected.

    Hey Farmers,

    Christmas is near and we all know that you are busy with the winter event, but still we have another small update for you.

    Complete removal of staff

    We deactivated the possibility to hire staff for your farms a while ago, but some players gave them long-term contracts and so they have still been working on some farms.
    With this update, we will completely remove (and replace) this feature, which means you will no longer be able to get any effect from the hired staff. Of course, you will not lose the gold you invested for being a nice employer and paying them beforehand. If you paid them for months in advance, you will of course get part of your gold back.

    Changes: Farm positioning and undergrowth
