Building Parts for the Orchard (Grafting Wax and Rootstock)

When building an orchard you will be required to get 15 Grafting Wax, and 15 Rootstocks from your friends.

We have discovered a problem requesting these items, and are working on a fix. You should be able to request these items from any of your Facebook friends, but a current bug is only showing your "Prospective Neighbors", or players that do not already play FrontierVille.

You should also be able to request these items from "All Friends" and "FrontierVille Friends". These tabs are not displaying correctly at this time, and we appreciate your patience while we work to restore them. We anticipate having this issue addressed quickly so that you will be able to return to normal game play.

We apologize for any disruption in your game play this has caused.

Guide to Business Mastery


Now your businesses can be upgraded just by supplying them! With each upgrade, your business can accept more goods and improve its payout!

NOTE:
Each business has different upgrade requirements.

Businesses Currently Eligible for Mastery

  • Bakery
  • Noodle Shop
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If I upgrade one business and then buy another of the same type, do I have to upgrade that one, too?
A: Yes, each business must be upgraded individually.

Q: How many levels can my business be upgraded?
A: You can upgrade a business to Level 3.

Q: Can neighbor franchises in my city be upgraded?
A: Yes.

Q. How much can friends help?

A. From business level 1 to 2, each friend gives you +10 to upgrade progress. From level 2 to 3, each friend gives +20 to upgrade progress!
.


How It Works

In the Build menu, you can see if a business is upgradeable. You will also see a star above your current business, which also means that your business can be upgraded.



After you build the business, you can move your mouse pointer over the bus to see your current Upgrade Progress.

There are a few different ways to upgrade:

  • Supplying: Every time you supply your business it gains +1 to upgrade progress.
  • Crew: Each crew member that you add gives your business +10 (+20 at level 2) to upgrade progress.
  • City Cash: For 2 City Cash you can add +1 to upgrade progress.
  • Tour Buses: For each tour bus you send to an upgradeable business, it gains +1 upgrade progress.
Whichever method you choose, you will see your progress in the mastery window as well as when you move your mouse pointer over a business.



When your business is ready to complete the upgrade, you will see a hammer over the building.



Now that your business has been upgraded, the building and number of stars update to reflect your business level.



Level 3

Repeat the process and upgrade to Level 3 to reap the full benefit of Business Mastery. Remember that a Level 3 business can hold more goods and give you a better payout!

Mega Stove Problems?

Hello Chefs!

Cafe World is excited to bring to all players a 2nd 4x Mega Stove!

As sometimes happens with a release, there have been early reports of hiccups with this brand new and exciting feature!

Some chefs have reported the following issues:
  1. Placing 4x Mega Stove is not counting for the first task in the first quest.
  2. Mega Stove may have disappeared.
  3. 4th Burner not unlocking on original Mega Stove
  4. Only being able to cook on one burner.
  5. Not receiving the quest line to place the Mega Stove.
Or you may have a different issue entirely.

Please know that these problems are temporary and are a direct result of the release process for this feature. Once the stove is out to everyone, these issue should not occur any longer in your Cafe.

We appreciate your patience and dedication to Cafe World!

Happy Cooking.

I didn't receive a bonus from a Mystery Gift

Players are able to redeem a total of 20 Mystery Gifts per day. Note that you can only accept 5 gifts per friend per day (until you reach 20). Additionally, you can only send 5 gifts per friend per day. The cap on these gifts resets at 12:00am PST. You can store unopened Mystery Gifts and open them the following day to score zPoints or zCoins.

Our developers have recently implemented a potential fix for Mystery Gift issues that seems to be having a positive affect on the problem.  Please be extra aware of whether your Mystery Gift bonus is zCoins or zPoints.  We've received inquiries from people who seem to be confused about the difference.

FrontierVille Not Loading 5/25/11

We are aware that many players are currently unable to load the game using Internet Explorer. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working as quickly as possible to get you back on your homestead.

Please be sure to run through the troubleshooting steps detailed here.

If you have already run through these steps and the game is still not loading, please know that we are working has hard as we can to fix this issue. There is no need to submit a ticket for this issue. Please try the game again later.

Loading Issues for 5/25/2011 are resolved (Updated!)

Hello Farmers,

We received reports from players having loading issues today, 5/25/2011, which started around 4:30 am PST until about 3:00 pm PST. During that time, we disabled Wither and Pet wandering as noted by the yellow alert box above your game.

The FarmVille team was aware of this new loading issue and we have worked to resolve the problem in a timely manner. We recently implemented an update that we believe has resolved this particular loading issue.

If you continue to have issues loading, please be sure to clear your cache and try these additional troubleshooting steps as outlined HERE.

 

Thank you for your patience.

My Energy Bonus is not counting!

Players are reporting confusion over energy bonuses received when harvesting crops or feeding animals. Please note that energy bonuses are added to total energy when they spawn, not when they are clicked on.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you around the homestead soon!

Energy Bonus

How do I verify my Prize Machine winnings?

Several players have reported recently that they've won the Jackpot when using their Prize Machine.

Keep in mind when opening the Prize Machine, it may appear that you've won, as the Prize Machine will, at first, look to be in the midst of a spin and then land on the Jackpot square to start off.  What you may see is something similar to the image below:

User-added image

It also might start off as having said you won a "Special Delivery", by starting off on that prize, as well.

Keep in mind that in order to win the jackpot, you must have chosen the "Max Play" option prior to spinning the prize machine. If you have not chosen the "Max Play" option, you will not win the jackpot.

Jackpots are only awarded a maximum of once a day, within Cafe World.

However, if you still believe you won and did not receive your Cafe Cash reward, we have a way you can check!

Open the Prize Machine and click the Past Winners button located at the bottom left-hand corner. The Past Jackpot Winners list details all of the Prize Machine winners for the month, the name of their cafe, and the amount won.



Thank you for playing Cafe World and happy cooking!

RewardVille FAQ - English

What is RewardVille?

RewardVille is a program that rewards you for playing Zynga games. As you play Zynga games, you will accumulate zPoints - similar to, but separate from, experience points in most Zynga games. With enough zPoints, you level up! As your zLevel climbs higher, you earn zCoins, which you can spend on unique items for participating games.


What are zPoints?

zPoints are points you earn for playing Zynga games. You can earn a maximum of 80 points per game per day, with a maximum of 300 points across the entire Zynga network each day. As you earn points, you increase your RewardVille zLevel and earn zCoins.

Currently, you can earn zPoints for playing the following games:



  • CafĂ© World
  • CityVille
  • FarmVille
  • FrontierVille
  • Mafia Wars
  • PetVille
  • Treasure Isle
  • YoVille
  • Vampire Wars
  • Zynga Poker
What are zCoins?

zCoins are awarded when your zLevel increases. zCoins are redeemed in RewardVille for in-game items.

How do I sign up for zPoints?

You automatically earn zPoints for playing Zynga games. To redeem zCoins in RewardVille, you must register for a Zynga account by going to http://rewards.zynga.com/.

What are the rules for RewardVille Terms of Service?

zPoints, zLevel, zCoins and RewardVille are subject to the Zynga Terms of Service and are void where prohibited. zPoints, zLevel and zCoins are not transferable and have no cash value. zCoins may only be redeemed for virtual items offered in RewardVille. Users may only maintain and earn zPoints and zCoins in one Zynga account. Zynga may adjust zPoint or zCoin balances to correct computing errors or exploits and may suspend or terminate users' access to zPoints and RewardVille for violating Zynga's Terms of Service. Zynga reserves the right to modify or terminate zPoints, zLevel, zCoins, and RewardVille at any time by posting a notice on the Zynga web site or by sending an email.

Getting Started

Every CityVille player that has reached Level 17 will be given a Jungle Habitat to place in their city.



You will also receive your first animal with the Jungle Habitat. The choice of animal you are given will be random. Look for the green Place button under an animal.



The zoo interface allows you to place and manage the animals in your Jungle Habitat.



Click Place to see an animal in your habitat.

To remove an animal from your Jungle Habitat, move your mouse pointer over the animal and click the X. The animal count readjusts. If you choose, you can re-place an animal into your zoo inventory.

After placing an animal, click See My Zoo to look at your zoo from high above your city.

Guide to Boosting your Population

CityVille presents a new way to gain population! Now, every time you collect from a residence, it has a chance to drop additional population!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do I need to do?
A: Simply collect rent from residences; each time you collect rent a population upgrader can drop.

Q: How much can each building's population increase?
A: You can see the population range for a building in the Build menu or above any house when it is not ready for collection.

Q: My friend was rewarded with a +40 population upgrade, why did I only get +20?
A: The amount of each upgrade varies according to the maximum population of each residence.

Q: Why is my residence population not increasing? The residence is not at the cap.
A: Check your city population cap. If you are maxed, you must build community buildings!

Q:
My residence and city are not at the cap, but population upgrades are not dropping from my buildings. Why?
A: If your citizens are unhappy, population upgrades will not drop from residences.

Here's How it Works

In addition to the base population of a residence, each residence can gain additional population up to it's maximum. This max is shown on the Build menu, and it also displays above your building.






Remember: Although you have a chance to get one of these population upgrades every time you collect from a residence, they are random and relatively rare.

If you collect from houses often, you can increase your chance of getting a population upgrade.

Depending on the maximum population of your residence, the exact amount of population gained from each will vary.

The population upgrade icons all resemble moving trucks of different sizes.
