To Tea or Not To Tea Missions

After completing the 3 quests of the Tea or No To Tea Mission, Ocean Liner Scene still appears to be locked.

Workaround: Try clearing your cache or refresh the game; the scene should then unlock. 

If this issue still persists then click the "Vote to Fix" bandage below.

The Updated Market Guide

Navigating the Updated Market in FarmVille

The Market has been completely updated! We’ve integrated a lot more functionality to the FarmVille Market, added some new features, and streamlined the user interface to give you a much more enjoyable shopping experience.

You can access the Market by simply clicking on the Market button at the bottom right of the FarmVille screen as always. The Market is now divided into seven categories:
  • Specials
  • Seeds & Trees
  • Animals
  • Buildings
  • Decorations
  • Farm Aides
  • Clothes
The first time you see the Market you’ll be on the Specials tab by default, though afterwards you’ll be first shown whichever tab you were on the last time you used the Market. The Specials tab is arranged a little differently than the others; you are shown three special items we’d like you to know about, like the Mystery Game, specific Limited Edition theme sets, or other new features. If they are sets of items you can click on the “View” button to look through those selections; other features like the Mystery Game will have a “Play Now!” button that’ll bring you directly to it.

All purchasable items (including Limited Edition theme and other timed items) are split up into the other six categories. You can easily navigate between these categories just by clicking on them. Each category is also split into a number of sub-categories, depending on the category. By default you’ll always be on the “All” subcategory, which displays everything in that category.

Each Market display page shows up to six items; if there are more than six, you’ll see arrows on the right- or left-hand side of the window that you can click on to move between the pages of items. Each item entry has all the information you’re used to seeing in the old Market, including Buy and Sell prices, harvest times, XP gain, how much time left to purchase that item (if it’s on a timer), the Limited Edition theme it’s a part of (if applicable) and an icon representing the item. If the icon has a “?” symbol on the upper left, it’s usually a special item (like a buildable structure) and you can move your mouse over the “?” to see the longer description. An item that cannot be purchased will show the “Locked” image in place of the “Buy” button; moving your mouse over this will tell you why you can’t buy it.

You’ll also see a “Preview” button under the icon for many of the items. Clicking this will pop up a new window and show the item on a farm field next to a typical avatar, empty farm plot and a hay bale (for size purposes). This way you can see exactly what it’d look like on your farm.

For Clothes we use the “Try On” button, which will bring you to the Character Customization window.

To the right of the line of sub-category boxes you’ll see the “Sort By” pull-down menu. Here you can select how you want to sort and display the items in that sub-category. For instance, if I click on “Seeds & Trees” and then “Sort By”, I’ll see that I can display all of the seeds and trees in ten different ways such as Lowest Price, Longest Harvest Time, etc. Here we’ve sorted everything by Shortest Harvest Time:

Not all categories will have all of these sorting options, however. The sort method will stay the same as long as you stay in the sub-category, so if you select to sort by “Mastery Level” for “All” on “Seeds & Trees”, this type of sorting will stay as you move through “Fruits”, “Grains”, etc. until you change the way the information is sorted or you change categories.

The last new feature you’ll see with the new Market is the “Best Sellers” strip at the very bottom. Here you can see some of the top selling items in FarmVille at that moment. Moving your mouse cursor over each item will show all the standard information about that item mentioned above, including the “Preview” and “Buy” buttons.

Zynga Joins W3C Core Mobile Web Platform Community Group

We’re believers in open web game development. It hits core to our mission – in order to connect the world through games, we want to bring play to everyone, no matter the device or platform. HTML5 is a natural fit to do just that.
Zynga first started with R&D to figure out how to make social games entirely from HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Internally, we now have a fully operational game engine capable of producing high-quality, interactive isometric games. So, we know it’s possible to create rich games in HTML5.
As a first step towards rich, open web-powered game play, we recently released our first mobile games in HTML5. Following Facebook’s launch of its mobile apps and mobile site, Zynga launchedZynga Poker Mobile WebWords With Friends HTML5 and Farmville Express. We continued with the launch of CityVille Express, which is similar to FarmVille Express and helps players manage their cities on the go. In November 2011, we also unveiled the first full HTML5 game in the App Store: Mafia Wars Shakedown.
These games utilize new, emerging standards such as WebSockets and advanced CSS3 features to deliver a seamless gaming experience and create fluid animations. Each game also utilizes open web technologies in different ways, showcasing the level of depth possible in HTML5 mobile development.
Although we’ve been making great progress with HTML5 game development, HTML5 game development is still a brave, not-yet-standardized world.
In order to make the web a better place for games, we joined the W3C in 2011 and started active discussions with browser vendors. We identified many of the remaining issues needed to create rich, immersive gameplay and are helping to standardize them.
With the recently founded Games Community Group, of which the second in-person meeting was hosted at Zynga HQ, we tracked down many features specific to games that would be great to have in browsers.  However, it slowly became apparent there’s “low hanging fruit” that not only make a huge impact on games, but the mobile web as a whole.
Today, we are proud to be part of a new initiative to bring these mobile web issues into focus: the newly created W3C Core Mobile Web Platform Community Group. The goal of the group is to accelerate the adoption of the Mobile Web as a compelling platform for the development of modern mobile web applications.
The Community Group will bring developers, equipment manufacturers, browser vendors, operators and other relevant members of the industry together to agree on core features developers can depend on, create related conformance test suites and provide to W3C (and non-W3C) groups use cases, scenarios, and other input related to enabling successful mobile web app development.
We encourage all developers to start building HTML5 games today.  Only by pushing the boundaries, can we learn about current limitations and address them. And hey, we even have a few open source tools available to help you along the way!

Cheats & Exploits


We've received a lot of contacts from our players lately involving cheats and exploits. While we obviously don't encourage players to talk about exploits on the forums—to prevent them from spreading—we do still receive emails and notifications from players about this, as well as doing our own research.

The most recent batch of exploits has allowed some unscrupulous players to obtain high level units without paying for them. This is bad enough on its own, but when these same players use them in World Domination it can make them very difficult opponents.

We want you guys to know exactly what we're doing to address these exploits.

First, as of last week the exploit no longer works. We tracked down and identified the problem that allowed players to get ahold of these units illicitly.

Second, this week we will be going through and removing all of the units which were generated through this exploit. It will likely take a few days before they get cleaned out, but we have a record of every single unit that was generated through this exploit and every single one will be removed from the cheater's Empire without a refund.

Since one of the variants of the exploits involves gifting, there may be some of you who received an unsolicited unit as a gift that was generated by an exploit. No action will be taken against your account, but the exploited unit will be removed.

We encourage you to continue to contact us via PM if you encounter evidence of another exploit in the wild. We're committed to making sure that our game is fun for EVERYbody, not just for the cheaters.

Coming Soon - Belloq's Black Market

Rene Belloq, the arch-rival of Indiana Jones, is here to offer you some Gadgets as a result of building his Black Market on Base Camp. Promising information that he won’t yet reveal to you or Indiana Jones, we only know that Belloq is a part of the upcoming Guardian of the Underworld maps in Egypt.
You will need to build the Black Market and craft new Gadgets in order to fulfill your missions on the new Adventures. As long as you are at Level 5 or higher you will soon have this opportunity. To begin, you should place Belloq’s Black Market on your Base Camp. 
Next, build the Market by asking friends for parts.
Once the building is complete, you can then craft new Gadgets for use on Expeditions. These new Gadgets include: Poison Scorpion Bait, Mummy Charms, Poison Cobra Bait and Bright Lamps.
The Poison Baits are used to defeat Beasties, similar to the types of Poison Bait found in Indiana Jones’s Tent. Bright Lamps can remove thick regenerating fog or sand storms so they no longer return when you move away. Mummy Charms will turn one hostile Mummy into your Ally to fight on your side!
You will have the ability to tend Belloq’s Black Market for Coins and XP when you are on your Base Camp as well as when you visit your neighbors. Depending on the Level of your own Black Market you can receive either a building part or a crafting part for one of many Black Market Gadgets.
We hope that you enjoy crafting and using these new Gadgets on the upcoming Guardian of the Underworld maps.  As always, Happy Adventuring!
