As far as I know you can't remove items for sale or add/remove the price or quantity. Which is the pits, because I have flax thats been sitting there for ages and I'm trying to make money to buy my windmill!

You have to be really careful to not sell at too high a price...

I'd like a 24hr timeout for items, not that i have trouble selling my stuff ;-)

Im coin poor so I always sell at the most jacked up high prices possible! I do appreciate the folks though, who sell vey cheap. I just bought two shovels for 24 coins....they keep me afloat.

Its better to sell at a decent price so you get some turnover. I sell out my store multiple times a day.

When will farm story 2 be avaible in the US????? What do you get to do on this game? Does stuff cost gems? Like stuff that is fun but really shouldn't? Does alot cost gems?? I really can't wait. Can someone show me pictures a lot and tell me about it? What it's like? Please and when will it be out??

I confess i havent spent many gems in the game yet, and all earnt ones. I'm on lvl 26/30 after almost a month of solid daily play. The ga,e is just so addictive that i never have the time to play all my other TL games that i played for more than 2 years (which are also max or near max level)

There doesnt really seem to be much to spend gems on, unless you are impatient and want to speed things along or not wit for upgrade and expansion parts.

As for when it'll be available, everyone asks but no one will tell yet. Be patient.

You get to tend animals (get milk, eggs, bacon, wool), grow and harvest crops, make things from both of these in crafting machines. Then you either sell any of those products to other players or send them off on deliveries for coins/xp. Plus after lvl 19 you get to fish from a pond for coins/parts/fish.

The best part of the game is the store and newspaper, where you can make alot of money by buying and selling products, even if you dont make them yourself. I know what are good prices for everything, so i hunt down bargains, then try to sell at a fair price back. You can also help out friends with things they cant make or find, and sell it to them.

The game really is hard to put down, and i'm sure there will be a 'Farm Story 2 Addicts' thread soon, if i dont start it myself ;-)

I'll be the second person posting on the addict thread! I too admit that I check into dragon, fashion, bakery, restaurant...well the games I play, after i log into the game. I rush to the stand to see if there are goodies to buy or resell. With the new update its even more incentive to play to earn as much as I can.

I want to get to that train station! And to think I sold off all of my expansion papers to make quick money for the pizza oven. It bettee contribute to the money I hope to make, by time I can purchase the Lemonade stand.

Ill just be content with stalking the neighbor who has both things, to find out what they are both like.

They can have a huge contender with this game and hope they keep adding features, by time the mass release comes.

I love that we can earn gems and though It says we can get more animals as we level up, the indicator doesn't show any such thing. We maybe need an option to ask for maps perhaps. Even if its just three per day. Otherwise the tedious task of earning them yourself is a bit much.

Keep it coming!

I'm wondering why i cant add the extra animal pens too. Is level 27 not high enough?

I expanded towards the station before the update, and have the train ready to go now. It just needs a whole stack of supplies that i have to try to not sell off like i normally do.... Hope its good :D

Can you share what they are please?! Is it like a regular delivery, where you need an outrageous bunch of things? Does it just give gems or the money and xp too?

It is even more outrageous. I believe it's different every time. Right now, the one I have asks for 30 tomatoes, 9 of the fried fish with lemon, 30+ carrots, 13 of the whipped cream things, and a few other things i can't see yet because i completed them. I believe they were something like ~12 apple pies, ~10-15 baked potatoes, ~8 meat hooks, about ~30 potatoes, and something else... possibly corn or potatoes or something.

Reward is 5 gems, 160 xp, and 260 gold. Once delivered, it takes 12 hours before you can get the next delivery.

You have a time limit to get all of the items loaded onto the train which, for me, was over a day (I can't remember). You cannot 'discard' the requirements for new requirements like you can with the deliveries. Once any of the items you get are loaded, you cannot get them back.

There are 10 different items that you have to load up on the train before it can go out for delivery. There is a timer on the train (I think 22-24 hours) that shows how long you have to complete the order. Obviously I don't know what happens if you don't have all the items. Does the train leave with what you've already loaded even if total order not complete?

There are three levels (Standard--up to 5 gems--and two others whose names I don't remember as the option to select them wasn't available yet). I'm presuming the other two levels become available once you have completed a certain number of standard orders, and will no doubt be more difficult to complete.

You earn gems, XP, and coins when the train leaves the station fully loaded.

You also earn XP, coins, and sometimes tools once each of the 10 items are loaded on to the train.

TIP: For those that have the train already...I didn't realize this the first time I loaded the train, but you can actually begin loading (and thus releasing them from your barn/silo) the items on the train once you have the required quantity for a particular item.

For example, if the train order requires 30 corn and other items, if you have all the corn already (the number below the item will turn from red to black), click on the item, and select load. This will remove it from your storage and put it on the train. This will give you more space in your barn or silo for collecting the other required items.

Note, though, if you do NOT have the required quantity for the particular item, you will only be able to load it onto the train using gems. As I haven't done this, I don't know if this allows you to bypass collecting the missing items, or only to load up what you have already.

Best strategy would be to try and gather and load the items that you have the most of first or that are easiest to make to free up space in storage, while crafting and buying the other items.

For me, currently, when train leaves the station, it doesn't come back for 12 hours. May differ at the other levels.

Sorry no screenshots as my train is out for delivery. Will try to remember tomorrow.

I don't know what level the extra animal pens--as well as the extra windmill, feed mill, lemon tree and juicer) are supposed to be available, as I'm already at level 30. However, when I first updated the game, I had looked for the extra animal pens, and they were not available to me, even though I remember that being mentioned in the update's "What's New" description.

However, I noticed today that one of my neighbours had two windmills, so I double checked my Market, and suddenly the extra animal pens, windmill, and feed mill were there!

So, it might be worth checking your Market again just in case, to see if the number of cows and pigs allowed has increased. If it is not there still, then, maybe they do open up at higher levels. I do know that, at level 24, the game said I was supposed to get an extra cow pasture and 4 cows, but ended up submitting a bug report because I didn't get them, so it's possible that at least those should be available to you.

I also just saw a level 8 player who had their newstand to the left of the screen, where the barn originally is when you first start. Didnt snap a pic before I left to see if I could also move mine. I couldn't. When I tried to return to their farm I couldn't find them in the community.

Thx, i noticed the extra windmill, pens and mills later in the day too. I am overloaded with milk and eggs now.

My big issue with this update is the side store, which i find now is almost unusable. It keeps failing to reach others store, and just gives me a wheel. I miss my side store, i used to buy hundreds of items in it daily, now i can barely buy a dozen from multiple attempts.

Wee! Just started playing this game few days back. I got a question, how to earn coins fast? Any advice? I can't even afford to buy the deep fryer and the next goal require me to buy the chocolate machine. =.="

It's so hilarious looking at the animals after you harvested them. They just fall flat onto the ground and looks dead. LOL! The silo is equally funny too. When you reached the maximum capacity, there's a red flag on the roof. XD Not sure about the barn, since I haven't burst it yet. Haha.. =x

Produce what you can, with the things you do have. Sell it at the maximum price allowed. Also, go on as many deliveries as possible. Buy/sell, produce/deliver. You will have money in no time.

I guess I know where I did wronged! Caused I sold all my items at half the price instead. Though I managed to save up for the deep fryer. Now saving for the chocolate machine. Thanks for the advices! :)

jtm101
06-29-13, 05:38 PM
Selling at max can be a risky practice that may be detrimental. I would be careful about trying that. What you need to do to make some real money is to get alot of nbrs and become socially active, then you can raise your prices. Having lots of slots in your store with a variety of products is good too, dont fill it with all the same stuff at same price and quantities. If you did want to try high prices, only do maps, deeds, permits and rare parts like nails, paint, shovels and to lesser extent bricks, hammers, screws, wood, picks or saws. Otherwise you can sell at near max (90%) if you have hundreds of nbrs, then those who do sell at actual max may still buy from you.

jtm101
06-29-13, 05:41 PM
One other thing, remember you dont just have to sell what you make. You should be going shopping for bargains, then re-sell those in your store. Especially for high demand items like those i listed above, and those onnhigher end crafting machines once they are unlocked for you.

THE TRAIN

A few people have been posting questions on my wall - so here's what I know about the train ...

The orders are large - about 12 different items with up to 14 quantities of each.
You earn a small amount of coins for each 'sack' you fill (eg 10 pizzas) and a few XP.
When you complete the order you get 5 gems and a few more XP .
The train then leaves the station and won't return for hours - 8 hours i think.
You can discard the order - it will ask if you want to send the train without the order. The train will leave and won't return for another 8 hours.
You get 2 days to fill the order.

jtm101
07-01-13, 07:20 AM
I have a silly question i thought i might put out there.

Has anyone noticed if discarded orders come back later in the game? Anyone written them down to see if they return exactly the same?

jtm101
07-01-13, 05:35 PM
Just adding to the train info.

You get 36hrs to fill the train with as much as you can. If you dont manage to fill it all, the train will still leave with whatever you put in it and you will get the reduced rewards, ie whatever you were up to when time runs out.

You also get a chance at a part (maps or building parts) for each of the things you load onto the train (much like regular deliveries).

The food orders usually need between 8-14 of each item and crops are often neaerr the range of 20-30.

I'm curious about the gifting system in fs 2. Do we only get to receive coins for the gift? And is 20 the maximum gifts we can receive per day? TIA! :)

07-02-13, 02:39 AM
We can only send 3 mystery boxes a day.when I've received them I've gotten coins, wheat, cow feed, clipboard

jtm101
07-02-13, 05:55 AM
We could have a whole thread on gifting. I've been playing a month and i'm still not 100% sure on how gifting works, but this is what i know. Hopefullymmost of this is accurate.

You can send 3 mystery gifts per day, which are either Coins (15-40?), Milk, Wheat, Cow Feed, Screw, Nail, Paint, Brick, Land Deed, Old Map, Permit. Perhaps the other building parts, not sure.

You can accept up to 20 gifts a day. As new gifts come in the oldest may drop off, so be sure to accept ones you want.

The randomness of the mystery gift isnt so random, as you tend to get the same gifts from particular neighbours. Ie most of my nbrs send me coins, but i know particular nbrs that send me paint, nails or other goodies daily. So i make sure i look after them, as paint is as good as gold in this game.

minidemon88
07-02-13, 10:15 AM
Thanks for the information maguar and jtm101! :D Sadly, I've only received 2 gifts till now and all I got was coins. It's a pity we can't choose what to send as a gift. Otherwise, that will be so great. XD

And I really love the quick invite function in-game. I don't have to manually key in the player's id, in order to invite them. Nice!

07-03-13, 04:11 AM
Summercarefree there are a few things you can do.

1. Sell the items in your store for really low prices so they'll go quickly
2. If you have a deep fryer start making French fries
3. If you're at the right level start making quiches to use the tomatoes
4. Discard orders in the deliveries building to get new orders in the hope they'll need tomatoes and potatoes

Sumercarefree
07-03-13, 12:08 PM
Thnx. But I cannot afford a Deep Fryer, n I cannot sell the potatoes n tomatoes yet. Maybe my Lvl 9 is too low. Will have to slowly raise money to buy a fryer.
Currently I can't harvest any crops, so I have to buy food items from others to feed the cows.
Unless I can buy items to expand the Silo capacity. Need a few more tools.

07-03-13, 02:32 PM
Hey Sumercarefree, can you describe what's blocking you from selling your potatoes in the market? As long as you have space in your Shop to sell items, you should be able to sell the potatoes at any time!

I think I do not know how to go about it. most people display the tomatoes and potatoes in the "Newspaper" sale.

The potatoes are in the Silo, capacity now is 60/75, but I cannot display it in "Your Shop". Here I can only display cheese, milk etc.

jtm101
07-03-13, 10:38 PM
When you are in the shop you should be able to select either the barn or silo to sell from (check for the 2 icons on the right)
By default the barn is selected, so go ahead and select the silo below the barn and choose your potaoes from there.

I don't know what the deli makes yet. But the jeweler makes earrings and a ring that I've seen so far. I've been having them popup as requirements for my deliveries. Which is a pest, because I'm two expansions away from reaching the mine. Tried to sell ten green maps to myself and someone snatched them up before I could! I cry...

The mine give you different elements, which is then used the forge to make nails, screws, hammers, etc. I find getting the yellow and green maps come far easier than the ones with the red watermark. I've gotten more pain from fishing and the butterflies than anything else. We seriously need more ways to obtain certain things. Shovels are so cheap to purchase or sell, but are the most rare item to stumble across. I've no idea.

I have two accounts. One I play often and the other I try to use for deliveries, so get maps and tools. Some times Im able to find goodies on lower level accounts. They don't yet care about expanding and sell the maps. Or someone higher up, trying to make money. Last week I sold 20 each of the green and yellow maps. Now I need them again!

I don't see why we can't be allowed to ask for up to 3 maps per day. Otherwise, like yourself, this game drags on and on to me.

Sumercarefree
08-07-13, 10:30 PM
Yes lower level players sell off the expansion papers for cash. Used to do the same too.
I had a second account to help, but now I gave only 1. U am busy with the Dragon Game Fights.
Farm Story 2, is in early stages. It will keep improving n get better.

Ensure you have enough space in your barn before collecting the eggs from the chicken.

09-08-13, 02:31 AM
I'm in the same boat. I have two chickens, not enough $$ to buy more. I cannot make corn bread without eggs, so I cannot make deliveries. So I cannot earn money. There doesn't seem to be any way to move forward in the game.
What am I doing wrong?

To tend the eggs, u have to touch the shed in the chicken pen,then a bucket appears mad u drag the bucket to the chicken pen. This should work

What are neighbors for in this game? Can you request things from them? I haven't added any yet because I don't know if they are useful. Also is there a way to get more old maps besides deliveries? I have plenty of the other permits for expanding but only one old map.

When I got stuck without being able to create feed or sell in the warehouse I sold my excess in the side shop. If the items didn't sell, I'd discard them. My barn and silo stay open. So much better to discard ten potatoes or two cheese or six chicken feed instead of losing out on the return items the airplane brings. Just make sure you're emptying the building you need space in. No good getting rid of excess corn when you need space in your barn.

What exactly happens when you 'promote' an item in the side shop?

I think they show more prominently in others shops and remain there, unlike it refreshing every 30 minutes.

What are neighbors for in this game? Can you request things from them? I haven't added any yet because I don't know if they are useful. Also is there a way to get more old maps besides deliveries? I have plenty of the other permits for expanding but only one old map.

Neighbors are good because you can view all they have for sale in one place. As opposed to just waiting to see what comes to the news stand. You can also get three gifts per day that varies on occasion. And yes you can only get the maps yourself by doing deliveries.

Here's a question - how do you get more of an item like wheat, if you run out of any to plant, and can't find it to trade with other farmers? Is there any other way? My cows are laying on their sides without feed, which I also can't find - none of my neighbors are offering wheat or cow food for trade. Thanks!

If you run out of something and the newspaper and neighbours don't have any, you can head to the community via your social button. It can be time consuming, but someone usually has something you need.
Sometimes putting the word out on a neighbours wall helps, someone might read it and mention they have what you need.
Also, try some of the higher players' shops, they have more slots and can sell a wider range of products.

I only use the parts for upgrading of my barn/silo. Make a mistake previously and I used them for adding another slot in my kitchen machine. =.=" Regretted when I know these parts are so hard to come by. :( I don't even use them for adding another slot in my side shop. Find it kinda wasted. Though I'm envy those people with multiple slots in their shop.

You will need to expand to the junk pile. Then I think you need a shovel to clear it.

Just tap on the butterflies as usual. Occasionally another larger flat looking one will appear then it will show up in your butterfly collection located in the ladybug machine you have to buy for 500 coins. If you are only getting puffs of smoke then after 8-12 times a black butterfly will appear.

When you go to sell in your shop you have to choose either the barn or the silo. The silo is where your crops are located.

The best way - deliveries, deliveries, deliveries. I used to not send out any delivery that paid less than 200 unless it was all crops. But, once I factored in the odds of getting an expansion part (which I could then sell for 175, since I can no longer expand myself) or building materials, I lowered my "criteria" to 150. Once I started sending out more "cheap" deliveries I noticed an increase in added goods received from the delivery.

Once you have the mine and the forge, you can make your own shovels. I have also gotten building materials from fishing in the pond, catching a butterfly, catching a mole, watching the newspapers and neighbors' side shops AND I have 2 dogs - I have actually received several hammers, shovels, etc. from my dogs (as well as gems).
Good luck!

The paint is the most challenging for me, too - very evasive! I usually do end up using my gems to purchase paint when I'm ready for a barn expansion. One time in the newspaper I actually was able to purchase 10 - YES 10 paints - that a farmer had for sale. I was elated!!! That held me for quite a while!

Keep trying! Good luck! (And buy a dog if you're able - I get quite a few gems from my puppies, granted 1 at a time but if you feed them regularly those onsies add up faster than you think.)

The chickens need to be jumping with the bucket displayed, drag the bucket over the chickens, you may have to do it a few times to collect from all of them. They will then fall over and then your feed symbol which show up and you can feed them.

How many gems are required to expand and how do you earn them? Thanks. I'm new to computer games and appreciate any helpful hints.

You can sometimes get gems from collecting from animals, sometimes (but rare) from mining.
When you click on the expansion sign you will have the option to buy maps, parts with gems. Be Careful because Buy for __gems means you only get one piece.
For example when it says you need a map:
You have 9/20 and you can buy for 16 gems, this is 16 gems per map so 16x 11= 176 to finish just that set of maps.
At the bottom it will show "buy all for __gems. This will be the total gems you need to completely expand.

Maybe this has been addressed elsewhere, but I haven't seen it: Can anyone explain the logic behind purchasing crafted items in the marketplace?

I haven't yet expanded to the train station, so I can only do plane deliveries. The amount of coins received from the plane deliveries isn't nearly high enough to profit from buying items at market rate to fulfill orders. For example, I'll have an order that requires 2 bass and 1 french fries, and the coins received from the order are less than the cost of the 2 bass.

Are the train deliveries profitable enough to make it worthwhile? From the screen caps I've seen here, they don't seem to be. Looks like you get a very small amount of coins for MASSIVE orders, although you do get a few gems for each order. The XP isn't very high, either. Do people think getting a couple of gems is worth spending a ton of coins to fulfill the order?

Sadly to say, train deliveries give really little coins. The tradeoff for coins is that sometimes when you do deliveries, you get parts/paper etc for expansion and mining, and some of these items can be difficult to find in the newspaper sometimes.

For me, I don't buy all items needed for plane or train deliveries, I try to make some, and buy some, especially for train orders since here's a time limit, so at least it's not a total loss. For trains, if you fulfil all 10 orders, you get 5 gems, but if you only fulfil 6, you get 2 gems. So you can decide how much you want to spend and how many orders you want to fill to get gems. It's worth spending a lot of coins to fulfill an order if you get gems out of it especially if you do not want to spend real money to get gems. Because gems, in comparison to coins, are much harder to come by. And a lot of good things (like pets :)) require massive amounts of gems, so it's awesome that there is a way to earn gems in the game, however little the amount is, in comparison to other teamlava games. As long as you spend time on the game, you can always earn coins back. But the same cannot be said of gems, if you solely rely on catching butterflies/moles or completing their collections to get gems. And when you're playing on a smart phone, there's always a high chance of losing gems in the infinite number of gem traps in fs2. So it depends on what you are playing fs2 for and whether you need gems to buy items you want.

Yes I do think doing train deliveries is worth it to get the gems. I do at least one train delivery per day, two in rare cases. I use those 5 gems I get every day to buy paint which costs 8 gems. My next barn upgrade needs 17 paint and I would never have been able to get the barn upgraded without doing these train deliveries.


I usually buy most of what I need from my neighbours or the newspaper and I will pay maximum price for it. A train delivery will cost me thousands in coins but I am still making profit every day on the farm doing that.


If you are lower level player and want to make coins, then don't do plane/train deliveries and sell everything you make in your shop. Plane deliveries are useful at times when you want to get XP to level up.

Which bait is for which fish? I thought the spicy one was for tuna and salmon but i ended up getting bass. I can get bass with dough. It's such a waste of spicy to get bass.

For tuna and salmon you need the fancy bait - the multicoloured one and it is guaranteed you will get them. I think you can get them occasionally with spicy bait but it is random.

Majority of the time:
Dough bait for anchovy
Anchovy bait for catfish
Spicy bait for bass
Fancy bait for salmon and tuna

If you are fishing in a hotspot this changes.... Majority of the time hotspots upgrade your catch by giving you a better fish or double fish.
If your level does not allow you to make fancy bait, your best bet to get salmon and tuna is to fish in a hotspot with spicy bait :)
Good luck
