If you have never played Farmville before, once you start, you will be able to see why this crazy game is so popular and kind of addicting. It can be confusing because there are lot of options including what decorations and buildings you can place on your farm, what kind of seeds you can grow on your farm, and which kinds of animals you decide to raise on your farm. It’s great to have that many options to mess around with on your farm however, it may be a quite difficult when you are first getting started and deciding what direction to take your farm.
Principle Number 1 – Grow Your Farm Slowly
When you’re working in FarmVille it’s pretty obvious that you’ll want to get the most from your farm. Because of this you’ll want to clear lots of land so that you can plant as many crops as you can. Don’t clear more land than you have money for or so much land that you can’t buy any seeds to plant. To clear one plot of land it will cost you 15 coins, so don’t clear too many at one shot because you won’t have any coins to buy those all important seeds.
You want to expand your plowed plot of land fairly slowly so that you are able to take full advantage of their planting potential and reap a good harvest. Once you harvest all your crops, you should replant all of your current plots first because you have those already paid for. You can then figure out if you have enough profit and coins to expand your land. If you continue to follow this pattern of planting what you already have after each harvest you will always have enough money to plat all over again.
Principle Number 2 – Make A Plan For Your Harvests
Just like in the real gardening and farming world you have to know when the best time to plant your crops so you can harvest at the right time. Everything you plant and every crop will have its growing season and will mature at its specified time. Once your crops are mature, you can harvest them. But you don’t want to wait too long because your crops may wither and die. You wan to make sure you plan everything so this doesn’t happen to you and your farm doesn’t die and wither away to nothing.
You can take Farmville as seriously as you want If you want to log in just once a week, you can do that as long as you don’t plat crops that need to be harvested in 4 or 5 days. However, once you start playing Farmville for any length of time, it’s probably very unlikely you will stay away from it for a week at a time. You’ll probably log into Farmville several times a day if you aren’t careful.
