FarmVille Royal Wedding Guide with Pictures

The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton has become a Universal Phobia, and Zynga is not stopping either. FarmVille is also celebrating the Royal Wedding of Prince Williams and Kate Middleton. While you can read the Official FarmVille Royal Wedding guide below, here are some of the photos of the Real Royal Wedding:-

You can also view some of the memorabilia issued to commemorate the Royal Wedding of William and Kate from different countries, states and territories around the globe:-

Here is the Official FarmVille Royal Wedding Guide for all you FV fans:-

The Royal Wedding Guide at FarmVille
The Royal couple is visiting FarmVille, so now’s the time to get your party set up before their arrival! The more people that show up to the party, the cooler the prizes you get to unlock!

The Royal Welcome Party works a lot like the New Years Party Barn. You’ll get the Welcome Tent the first time you play FarmVille after the update, and you will immediately be entered into Placement Mode. You can place the Welcome Tent on your farm now, or you can choose to place it in your Gift Box for use later (by switching to the Multi-Tool for instance).

Once the Welcome Tent is on the farm you can click on it, then select “Go to Party!” to see this window:

You can see the red carpet floor inside the tent where the Avatars of your guests will show up, and the list of prizes on the right. As you gather guests, each of the prizes will unlock and either show up in your Gift Box or become available in the Market (Note: the gift may not show up in the Gift Box until you refresh the game).

To invite guests, simply click on the green “Invite Friends” button at the bottom of the Royal Welcome Party window. You’ll see the standard list of friends you can send invites to. As they accept, you can see their avatars appear inside the tent. You may need to refresh if a whole bunch of friends show up during your gameplay session.

You also have the option of foregoing inviting some if not all of your friends to pick up the special prizes by paying Farm Cash. Simply click on the “Unlock” button next to the prize to unlock that prize (and all the prizes underneath that prize). You’ll be asked to confirm if you want to spend that amount of Farm Cash.

And that’s all there is to it! The Royal couple will show up on May 12, and after that date you won’t be able to invite any more guests or unlock prizes (the Wedding Tent will also be storable at that time).

FarmVille Podcast - April 25th!

Hey Farmers and welcome to this week’s installment of the Official FarmVille Podcast! My name is Lexilicious and I am here to bring you all of the latest news and information about FarmVille from Zynga. This week we’ll be talking about the recent revisions made to the Gift Box and Marketplace, including the ability to sell multiple items at once and the addition of the new “Search” feature. We’ll also talk about the Pig Pen revamp, the refreshed truffle hunting feature, and we’ll also have a sneak peak of what’s coming up in FarmVille.

Many of you have already been taking advantage of the most recent additions to the Gift Box and Marketplace but for those of you who have not yet discovered the joy of the new Search Function or the ability to sort your gift box by category, here is a quick explanation of our latest release.
In a nutshell, the Gift Box has been revised to make it a much more friendly experience! Items in the Gift Box can now be sorted into categories and the interface is faster than ever before. The base functionality of the gift box remains the same, but you can click on the different Filters to sort everything by that item type. To easily look through the contents of the Gift Box, just click on the arrow on the right or left, which will flip through the pages of your inventory.

The new Gift Box also has Search functionality, which you can see in the upper right-hand portion of the Gift Box window. Simply click on the white box then type in what you want to search for. Finally, if you need to clear out some stuff from your Gift Box, we’ve eliminated the need to keep clicking Sell if you have a ton of one item. Now if you have more than one of the same item and click Sell, you can use the up and down arrows to determine how many of these items you want to sell all at once. You can also enter in a number by clicking on the “1” and putting in whatever number you want to sell.

Search functionality has also been added to the Marketplace, and it works very much the same way as the gift box. Now if you need to find something in the Market, you can just type it in and FarmVille will find it quickly!
As you can see, the Search box is available in the upper right-hand portion of the Market window. It’ll always show up there no matter what part of the Market you are currently in. click on the white box, and type in something to search for.

As you start putting in letters FarmVille automatically sorts through and finds what you have selected, so you can see the choices narrow as you enter in more letters.

As of Friday night, we have also made some big changes to Pig Pens and Truffle Hunting. Previously, Pig Pens were great storage for your little four legged friends and they allowed you to hunt for Truffles. However, our latest release has introduced the long awaited Pig Breeding feature! You can start making new piglets immediately if you have a Pig Pen on either your Home Farm or your English Countryside farm. If you don’t have a Pig Pen, don’t worry! We’ll give you another one for free.If you have one already built, you’ll get a free boar as a prize.

Now, breeding new pigs is a lot like breeding new sheep. Click on your completed Pig Pen, and then choose “Look Inside” to see the new Pig Pen interface. If your Pig Pen is empty, you’ll need a boar and a pig to start breeding, the result of which is a piglet, which once fully grown will take on some of the characteristics of the parents, such as colors and perhaps the patterns. More than likely there will be some variation in the colors, depending on the colors of the parents. The pattern can only be inherited from the boar, but if both parents have the same pattern, the chance of pattern inheritance is much higher.

Now let's start breeding. Click on the boar you want to breed with and select the option to breed. Once you have done this, the pigs you can breed with the boar will be highlighted in the Pig Pen interface. Click on the pig you want to breed with and you’ll see the Breeding window. Breeding a new pig is a 24 hour process with a 50% success rate. This means that if you’re not successful, you will have to start all over again. However, you can improve your chance of success (and decrease the amount of time it takes to breed) by using Love Potions. The more love potions you use, the higher your success rate will be. You can acquire Love Potions from your Neighbors or by purchasing them with Farm Cash.

You can use the up and down arrows to choose how many Love Potions you want to spend. If you don’t have enough, you’ll be prompted to buy more. When you’re satisfied with your chances, select the option to breed. The stall at the upper left will become occupied and their places in the Pig Pen pasture will be replaced with helpful signs. If there’s a timer, a clock in the stall will show how much time is left to go. Now, with any luck, you’ve bred a new piglet! You can choose to name your piglet, choose to Give it Away or you can keep it.

Once placed on your farm, a piglet can be fully grown using 10 Baby Bottles. You can acquire Baby Bottles from the your neighbors, the free gifts page, or from the Market for Farm Cash. Once you’ve applied 10 Bottles the piglet will grow into an adult boar or pig.

Currently boars only come in two different patterns; plain and spotted. As noted above, the colors available for pig breeding is a somewhat random process, based on the colors and patterns of the parents used. Each color a parent possesses has a certain color range that can be applied to the Pig in question, so you never really know what you’re going to get.

And as with Sheep Pens, there is a limit as to how many bred boars and pigs you can have on each farm at any one time. The limit is 100, which includes all bred pigs on that particular farm, in that farm’s Pig Pen, and in the Gift Box. This is per farm, so you can have up to 100 for each the Home Farm and the English Countryside farm.

We’ve also streamlined the way truffle hunting works, and we’ve revised the rewards you get for redeeming truffles! With the addition of breeding, Pig Slop has been removed from FarmVille. If you still have some in your Gift Box or elsewhere, go ahead and get rid of it. Going forward, when you click to harvest your Pig Pen, you’ll start your only truffle hunt of the day. The pig chosen to hunt with is completely random, as is the neighbor’s farm you can find the truffle on.

If you find a truffle, you’ll see a pop up prompting you to share the truffle with that neighbor. Clicking Share will ask you to make a post to their wall, informing them of your discovery. They can then respond by returning the same type of truffle to you by posting on your wall.

Again, this will be the only truffle hunt of the day; once your Pig Pen is ready to be harvested again, you can try for another truffle hunt. The prizes for redeeming a truffle have been heavily revised. You can get building parts, bottles, love potions, and all sorts of other treats (including other animals) by redeeming truffles now.

Finally, Pig Pens now visually show which pigs you have in it, similar to Sheep Pens. The pigs you put in last show up in each of the 3 stalls as well as the mud yard in front of the pen.

Now, we know that the introduction of a new animal to breed has sparked some concern that there will be an insufficient amount of Love Potions to go around for both sheep and pigs. That’s why, for a limited time, all farmers will be able to craft love potions in their Pubs. In addition to this, you will also be able to craft bricks in your bakeries, wooden boards in your spas, and nails in your winery.

On that note, let’s go ahead and get into the coming soon segment of this week’s podcast. First up, we have an addition coming in the near future that many of our players will be excited to see. Soon, your Chicken Coop, Dairy Barn, Pig Pen, Turkey Roost, Duck Pond and Animal Trough will be rotatable, like many of the other buildings in the game.

And lastly, we are also planning on increasing the Bushel Limit for all of our farmers. Soon, you will be able to store an additional 25 bushels for every additional stall you have on your farm after your first.

Alright folks, that’s it from me this week. Again, my name is Lexilicious and I will be back on May 6th to bring you all of the latest news and information about FarmVille from Zynga!

Happy Farming Everybody!

How to Use the Search Feature in FarmVille Market?

Do you know that you can use a search feature to search for your favorite items in the FarmVille Market to find them easily and hassle-free.

Search functionality has been added to the Market and the Gift Box! Now if you need to find something in the Market or the Gift Box, you can just type it in and FarmVille will find it quickly!

As you can see, the Search box is now available in the upper right-hand portion of the Market window:

It’ll always show up there no matter what part of the Market you are currently in. Now just click on the white box, and you’ll see your cursor show up on the left side of the box. Type in something to search for, like “sheep” (you don’t have to press Enter):

As you start putting in letters FarmVille automatically sorts through and finds what you have selected, so you can see the choices narrow as you enter in more letters. When I finished typing “sheep” I came up four items:

So you can see searching in the Market is very simple. This functionality has also been added to the Gift Box, and it works very much the same way. Enjoy!

3-Step FV Guide to use Building Parts from Gift Box Using New Method

Here is another QUICK FV GUIDE to teach you the new method of using the building parts from your Gift Box. All you have to do is to follow the 3 simple steps mentioned below:-

Official Guide.  We’re excited to announce a new way to add common parts to buildings and apply them to objects/animals like seedlings and lambs. Now you can add these items from your gift box simply by clicking on what accepts them.

Clicking through individual parts in your Gift Box is now a thing of the past!

Using the New Part Adding Method:

Open your Gift Box and select a part to use:

Your mouse cursor will now change to show the part you’ve selected, along with the amount you have in your Gift Box to use. Any building/animal/item that can accept the part will be highlighted blue, while those that cannot will remain unmarked as seen below:

Clicking on an object to accept a part changes the number of parts available on your mouse cursor to keep track of what you use easily:

Enjoy Farmers, and happy farming!

Best FarmVille Spring Basket Guide

Have you got the Spring Basket and added it to your farm BUT you are still not using it to the optimum, then here is the best FarmVille Spring Basket Guide brought to you by "Master FarmVille". It will give you detailed in-sight about getting the best out of your basket and make your spring a celebrated one!

It’s springtime! That means you’ve been collecting those Flowers from your Spring Gardens and your neighbors and you’re ready to redeem them for some cool new gifts, right? That’s good, because the Spring Basket is now here!

You’ll get your empty Spring Basket free the first time you play FarmVille after the update, where you will immediately be entered into Placement Mode. You can place the Spring Garden on your farm now, or you can choose to place it in your Gift Box for use later (by switching to the Multi-Tool for instance).

Once the Spring Basket is on the farm you can click on it, then select “Look Inside” to see this window:

The Spring Basket works like many of our other item-gathering style events in FarmVille. You acquire Flowers through various methods, then “Use” them from your Gift Box to place them in your Spring Basket. As you accumulate these Flowers in the Spring Basket you can redeem them for exclusive items.

You can acquire Flowers by:
  • Harvesting your Spring Garden.
  • Requesting Flowers from your neighbors directly (by clicking on the “Ask for More” button).
  • Receive Flowers from a neighbor who uses the Free Gifts page (or click on “Send Flowers”).
  • Purchase 5 Flowers at a time by clicking on the “Buy Flowers” button (for 5 Farm Cash).
  • Click on a Spring Basket-related feed from a neighbor.
  • Harvest a neighbor’s Spring Garden.

Here are the five different types of Flowers (note they all count as the same when you put them in the Spring Garden):

As you put the Flowers in your Spring Basket you’ll see the meter on the left fill up. The physical look of the basket also changes as you fill it with wonderful, blooming Flowers.

You can also click on the “Comparison” tab to compare how many Flowers you’ve accumulated with your neighbors.

To get one of the special exclusive prizes, simply click on the “Redeem”
button next to the prize you want—if you have enough Flowers (the available amount of Flowers that is redeemable is at the top of the window, “You have X available to use!”) you’ll be asked to confirm the purchase.

If you hit “Accept” the prize will be stored in your Gift Box and you can share an extra prize with your friends.

Note: Like the Pot of Gold, there will not be a second page of exclusive prizes added. These six items are all that will be available for this event.

Play or Pause Your Farms in FarmVille

Now you can play both farms at a time but Be Ware that both of your farms will be prone to withering if you do not get back in time. As per official FV forums, the limited release is already available for some members.
Think you can handle the crop cycles and other day-to-day activities of both your Home Farm and your English Countryside farm at the same time? Now you have the option to turn off Pausing for your other farm!

When you travel between to your other farm, you’ll get a pop-up window confirming your travel request (in this example we are moving from the English Countryside to the Home Farm):

Right now Pausing is selected, meaning that when I go to the Home Farm, my English Countryside farm is Paused. If I go back to the English Countryside, my Home Farm will be Paused. At the bottom right there’s a link to “Change Options”. Click on that and you’ll see the Travel Options screen:

As you can see “Pause current farm” is selected. Now, however, you have the option to “Play both farms” meaning crop cycles and other items on a timer (like stables, orchards, etc.) will keep growing no matter which farm you’re on. If you want to do that, click on the option for “Play both farms” and click Save. (If you don’t want to make a change, just leave it the way it is and select Save.)

Back on the original window you’ll now see a change:

Now FarmVille asks if you want to switch farms while reminding you that both farms will continue to grow. Note that you’ll get this travel window every time you travel between your Home Farm and your English Countryside farm. To go ahead and move between farms, select Travel Now! or Cancel to not make the trip just yet.

FV Team has refreshed your Wishing Well Prizes with brand new England theme. 

FAQs for FV Wishing Well Refreshed Prizes
Q: I Don't have a Wishing Well. What should I do?
A: If you don't have a Wishing Well yet, don't worry--you will get one as soon as you enter the game and you'll be prompted to place one. 

Q: I have a Wishing Well. What should I do to get New Prizes?
A: If you have a Wishing Well already, you can just continue to use it with the new theme. If you still have some Lucky Pennies left over, you can use those too!

Q: Does the Wishing Well still has 4 collections to complete the theme?

A: Unlike the previous Irish theme, the England theme has six collections of six items each to complete, and with each collection completed you'll receive a brand new item in your Gift Box. 

The mechanics of the Wishing Well will remain the same otherwise, which you can see in our Wishing Well Guide.

Latest FarmVille Podcast - 25 March 2011

Here you can see the latest Farmville Podcast as released on 25 March 2011:-

You can also read the entire transcription of the FV podcast here:-

FarmVille Podcast - March 25th!

Hey Farmers and welcome to this week�s installment of the Official FarmVille Podcast! My name is Lexilicious and I am here to bring you all of the latest news and information about FarmVille from Zynga. So this week we will be doing things a little different. This week, our podcast is a special English Countryside themed podcast! We will be walking you through the beginning of your adventure on the English Countryside as well as answering some of the most frequently asked questions from the community about our latest release. Just so everyone knows, our podcast will be resuming its normal format and schedule on April 8th.

Now, FarmVille English Countryside adds an all-new chapter to the game you know and love. For our players who have not yet had a chance to look, FarmVille�s latest launch adds all kinds of new farming fun set against the backdrop of the beautiful English Countryside.

In FarmVille English Countryside, players travel with an English duke back to his homeland where the village farms have fallen into disrepair. You�ll receive new land to apply your expert farming skills to and be in charge of getting the English farm in ship shape. FarmVille English Countryside also features all new crops and buildings, sheep breeding, new characters and premium English soil that will allow you to master your crops faster!

Today, we are going to go through some of these things, but first we want to talk to you about how you can get to your new farm.

Now, the only real requirement you need to begin your journey to England is that you need to be Level 20. As soon as you hit Level 20 you�ll see a pop-up informing you to look up at the sky, followed by a short movie of the Duke crashing his airship on your farm. The duke will promptly present a deed to your new farm in England!

Clicking on �Place Airship� will immediately put you into Placement Mode. You can choose to place the damaged Airship on your farm now, or you can place it in your Gift Box for use later. Note that placing the Airship (which triggers the quests) is completely optional. If you�d rather not bother with England right now, you can keep the Airship in your Gift Box and pull it out when you�re ready.

When you do decide to place it, you�ll be launched into the first quest. If you don�t see the quest window pop up, you can always find the quest icon on the left-hand side of the screen. Usually each quest has between two and four objectives that need to be met in order to complete it. Many objectives can be skipped by paying Farm. As an objective is completed, a green check mark will appear next to it. You can close the quest window at any time by clicking on �Okay� at the bottom of the window. Once all of the objectives for that quest are completed a reward consisting of a set of prizes will be awarded to the player. This can include XP, coins, and a special item or two. If you haven�t done so already, click on the quest icon to bring up the quest window.

For your first task, the Duke needs something heavy to hold down his airship. This first quest has just one objective: buy three crates and simply place them on your farm. Click Buy, and then place it on your farm by clicking on an open spot. You�ll see the �Progress!� banner open up next to the quest icon, which indicates you�ve made progress in the quest.

For your next quest, the Duke wants to bring you back to England to see the new farm, but the Airship has sustained some damage. Cotton will be needed to help patch it up.

This quest deals entirely with planting the Cotton only (not harvesting it). Simply plant 50 plots of Cotton by hand or with a vehicle and the quest will automatically complete. After planting your cotton, you will have another quest similar to the ones I just described. Now, you�re ready to go for England, so it�s time to throw a party and all of your neighbors can be invited�the more you get to come, the faster it�ll take for you to be able to leave. Click on the quest icon to start the Bon Voyage quest and invite your Neighbors to see you off.

Click on the Invite Friends button to start inviting your neighbors. When they accept, the meter on the left will begin to fill, and their avatars will show up at the party. Now remember folks, to travel to England, you need the help of existing friends. You do not need to add any new neighbors.

Once you get four neighbors, you�ll see a 4-day countdown timer show up underneath the Bon Voyage Party banner at the top of the window. If you manage to get 15 neighbors, the countdown timer will decrease by 2 whole days or will hit zero (whichever is better for you). Getting 35 will instantly zero the countdown timer. Alternatively, you can always pay Farm Cash to skip this requirement.

Once the countdown timer reaches zero you can travel to your English farm by clicking the �go to England� button at the top of the screen.
When you�re in England you can come back to your Home Farm at any time. Note that when you are on one farm, the other farm is �paused��that is to say, all timers are stopped. Your crops will not wither on a paused farm, but they will not grow either. A neighbor can only visit whichever farm you are currently active on; they cannot visit a �paused� farm.

Now that you are in the English Countryside, you are probably going to want to know how far along your neighbors are and where you are in comparison. Or maybe, you want to help them with their quests but are unsure of how to do this.

Well, that�s what the handy Village Map is for! This map displays where you are in the English Countryside quests and where all your neighbors are so you can track your progress, see if someone is stuck, and what you can do to help them out.
All you need to do is go to your English farm. Now look at the buttons at the lower right-hand portion of the FarmVille game window. The map icon shows up as the default option where the Co-Op button used to be.

The Village Map shows a path of quests leading from the Sheep Pen at the start through a series of mystery buildings. It highlights which quest you and your neighbors are currently on. As you progress in the English Countryside quests, the mystery buildings will be revealed one by one until you�re done!
You can help your neighbors by moving your mouse over their profile image. A pop-up will show, displaying the name of the neighbor and a �Get Help� button. Click on that button and you�ll get a prompt to post a feed to their wall, giving them a specific item to help them out on their quest.

If there are more than three neighbors for each major quest area you�ll see a text link showing how many more neighbors at that area (for example, if there are 9 neighbors in one area, there will be 3 profile images and a �+6 others� notice). Clicking on that text will show you a new window displaying all of the neighbors in that quest area. From there you can easily click on which neighbors you want to help.

If you�ve already used this function to help out a neighbor you�ll see a message stating that you�ve already helped out that neighbor today. If you come back the next day you can post another feed to their wall. The neighbors can be ahead of you or behind you in the quest path; it doesn�t matter where they are in relation to which quest you�re on.
In our next podcast, we will be giving a quick walkthrough about Sheep Pens, but for now, we want to answer some frequently asked questions from the community regarding the new English Countryside release.

First up. Do I have to go to England?

The answer to this one is simple. No! You don�t have to complete any of the quests and you can continue on your own farm any time you want. We want you to go to England to experience all the new features, items, and quests but you don�t have to.

Is storage universal? Can I transfer items between farms?

Currently, Storage is not universal between farms. Each farm has its own individual unique storage space. Once an item is placed on one farm, it cannot be moved to the other farm.

Now you may be asking� what about my Gift Box?

Many items stored in the Gift Box can be placed/used on either farm. This includes many decorations, buildings and animals. Unique quest items, collections, and certain consumables may only be used on one of the farms, depending on the item. This also means purchases made from the Model Farm, which go straight into the Gift Box, can then be added to whichever farm you wish. Once you place that item, however, it cannot be moved to the other farm.

Where can I get a ram to start sheep breeding?

You can get a ram by starting the Sheep Pen quests on your English Farm; by completing them, you will get you Brutus the Ram, which you can breed with. Other rams can be acquired by purchase in the Market or through your neighbor�s feeds if they are sharing newly bred rams.

And lastly, one of our most commonly asked questions so far� how come I can�t sheep breed on my Home Farm yet?

Currently, Sheep Breeding is only available in the English Countryside, however we�ll be adding this ability at some point in the future for players who have mastered their English Farms.

Alright folks! Well that�s it from me this week. Again, my name is Lexilicious and we hope this special podcast was helpful for our listeners! I will be back to bring you all the latest news and information about FarmVille on April 8th. As always, please remember to come share your thoughts and opinions about the English Countryside release with us on the Official FarmVille forums.

Happy Farming everybody!
