Since the launch of English Countryside, many players have asked for the option to keep both their farms active at once.
Well Farmers, we’ve listened and we’re excited to announce that you can now choose to keep both your Home and English Countryside farms active at the same time. When traveling between your farms, choose to ‘play both farms’ or pause the farm you’re leaving. But don’t forget, if you turn ‘pause’ off, your crops can wither while you’re on your other Farm.
Let us know how you enjoy this new option and thank you for your continued feedback regarding the English Countryside release.
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.
