Road Trip Quest and Pilgrim Hats Collection Mission



A new 11 day Quest with Collection Mission has started.  The reward for the Collection Mission is a Brussel  Sprout Stalk, a Collectable.  The Brussel Sprout Stalk produces a random number of Brussel Sprouts every 4 hours.  You cannot speed the process.  Note that Sprouts (Brussel Sprouts in the States) are really a mainstay of British dining.  I always felt it was a pity that they were not more popular in the States as they are one of my favourite vegetables.  In any case, they are the product of the new Collectable in Seaside and there are three new Recipes in the Kitchen for them.

This site was created and maintained by Freyashawk of Harvest Moon FDC Farm, aka Eugenia Martino.  Permission is given to post links to my posts in your Facebook Groups, but please do not use my work without giving me credit.  If you are a neighbour of Harvest Moon FDC and find my site useful, please do consider giving your votes in the Farm Beauty Contest to Harvest Moon FDC.  It is a real incentive to me to keep working to update the site after more than four years of doing this!  I thank you in advance for your support.

You will need a Plumeria Tree for the Collection Mission.  The Crop to plant is Cane, the Animal is the Limousin Cattle and the Machine Product you will need is Buffalo Milk Cheese.

For low level players, I recommend that they complete the Collection Mission first.  The Reward for this will appear in the Market once the Quest has expired but will have an RC price.  If you can activate the traditional Quest from the Lighthouse later, you will need the Collectable and you will not be able to obtain it by performing any Collection Mission at that point in time.

MONKEY BOOST:  Lately, I have been activating the Monkey Boost for Machine Products, to reduce the OP Cost when I perform these Missions.  This particular Quest sequence has more tasks for Animal Products and Machine Products than Crops, so the Monkey Boost to reduce OP cost is very useful here.  Note that there are two different Machine production Monkey Boosts.  One makes production faster.  The other reduces OP cost.  My personal preference is for the one that reduces OP cost as I use OP twice, once to start the production and once to speed it to completion.  (I do this in order to complete this guide faster... you need only use it once to start the production and then simply wait for the completion.)

LOW LEVEL PLAYERS:  There was a time when players had more than enough 'basic' items including Milk, Cheddar Cheese and Honey.  These are Free Gifts that can be requested and sent daily to Neighbours.  Although high level players sometimes suggest other Gifts, even above Level 100 I have found that these Quests can be brutal in decimating basic items you have saved.  For example, one of the tasks is to make 6 dishes of Almond Spread.  Each dish requires 12 Cheddar Cheese and 2 Almonds.  Power is another consideration for all players, but especially those who have not played long enough to store Power in any quantity.  ALWAYS try to take advantage of the Daily Special Deals for Power and OP in your Market if you have sufficient coins.  For 2500 Coins, you can purchase 5 Power.  For 5000 Coins, you can purchase 100 OP.  For another 8000 Coins, you can purchase an additional 5 Power.  These purchases can make a difference even to high level players if you remember to take advantage of them every day.

Another tip for players is to make 'Basic' dishes in the Kitchen in advance for timed Quests like these.  Dishes that always are useful include:  Butter, Batter, Cake Flour, Soft Dough, Condensed Milk, Sour Cream and Honey Syrup.  For this particular Quest, as an example, you need to make Dishes that require Butter as an ingredient.  If you have Butter in your Barn, you can use your Power to make the task dish rather than expending it on this ingredient.

Currently there is a sale for premium Pets.  The best Pet for Stamina as well as Bargaining Power is the Red Turtle.  I have a personal weakness for any Cat but the Red Turtle can service both land and water guests and is a powerhouse.

New Savannah in Wilderness Map and Thanksgiving Guests


(Above: Thanksgiving Base with new Premium Decorations and two Thanksgiving Arches)

The third area of the Wilderness Map now is available in the form of the Savannah.  Guests give Kangaroo Pet Cards.

The Kangaroo requires 300 Kangaroo Cards and begins with 700 Stamina but only 80 Bargaining/Sales.   It has four Skill Slots with a Chance for Motivation (Reduce Stamina by 2%), Advanced (Improve Selling ability by 8%), Friendliness (Increase Buyer Happiness by 1%) or Perseverance (Improve Selling ability by 3%).   If you compare this with the Hippo, you will see that both Stamina and Sales begin at a slightly higher level (as the Hippo starts with 600 Stamina and 75 Sales) but the advantage to the Hippo is the fact that he/she can go into the Water to take the orders of the Water Guests.

The requirements to unlock the 1 Star Savannah area are as follows:

30000 Coins (earned from Lagoon Guests)
10 Telescopes
800 Landscape Points
650 Dev Points

To invite 1 Star Savannah Guests, you need the following on your Farm:

25 Paths
9 Water Paths

To unlock 2 Star Savannah, you need:

15 Telescopes

Boutique Decorations
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The other new Feature of the Update is the Boutique Decoration department in the Market where you can purchase Decorations for RC.  These are divided into three different categories:  Ornate, Fancy and Lovely.  What this means essentially is that we no longer are dependent upon the appearance of special offers in the Market to have access to premium Decorations from the past.  This eliminates the recent Kindle problem wherein the DIY tab did not appear for users.

Note that there are two different ways to access an option to purchase a specific Decoration.  One is through the actual Boutique Decoration Department in the Market menu.  The other is by finding the Decoration in the Gallery and tapping on the price.

Thanksgiving Guests
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

There now are 'temporary' Guests that give Maple Leaf materials for merging in the Factory.  The items you can create, apart from one the Thanksgiving Pet Hat, are from last year in the form of the Thanksgiving Arch and its stackable decorations.  They all are listed as theme items in the current contest and are quite charming if you do not have them from last year.  Note, however, that there is a limit to the number that can be stacked on the Arch.  Choose the ones you like best first and then go from there, as the others either have to be placed on the farm directly or kept in storage.

All players can merge 1 Thanksgiving Arch in the Factory, irrespective of whether or not you have one from the past.  In other words, you can own and place a total of 2 Thanksgiving Arches, but only one can be made in the Factory.

The Thanksgiving Pet Hat is one of those 'temporary' Pet items that, once you add it to the Pet House Apparel Room, will expire after 12 days.  Please write to Support to protest... this is the second time they have done this.

Note that, with temporary Guests, your Passports can be refreshed if you are willing to spend TC.  The cost for adding another Thanksgiving Passport is 150 TC.

Below, a photograph of two Thanksgiving Arches with all stackable decorations divided between them.


Please note:  Two of the Ornaments for the Thanksgiving Arch are no longer available.  These are the Sunflower Ornament, which was the Beauty Contest Reward last year and the Apple Ornament, which was the November Reward for the Calendar last year.

Thanksgiving Dinner Farm Beauty Contest

A new Farm Beauty Contest began only a couple of days after the end of the last one.  This is unprecedented.  If you did not collect all your Rewards, therefore, from the last Contest, you will have lost them now.  In the past, you could continue to collect earned Rewards once the Contest expired for a few days afterwards.

The current 11 day Quest is to be found in the next post.  Here is a link:

A Farm Organiser Quest


Thanksgiving Base
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This was one of the very first Bases that ever was created in this game.  Veteran players probably have one and in the past, one was the limit.

The Thanksgiving Base now is in the Decorations section of the Market as of 4 November and shows a timer of 20 days.    You can own a total of three of these but at this point in time, unless you are willing to spend 1 RC for each material, you will move slowly towards completion as materials found in the various Mystrons Shops:

Thanksgiving Base: 3000 Coins

Materials list:
8 Rope Coil (Currently in Blue Mystron Shop for 8 Blue Mystrons)
10 Knots (Currently in Red Mystrons Shop for 20 Red Mystrons)
14 Sunflower Vines  (Currently in Green Mystron Shop for 50 Green Mystrons)
8 Fruit Vines (Currently in Yellow Mystrons Shop for 10 Yellow Mystrons)

You are limited to one purchase per day per item in these Mystron Shops, so it will be a slow process to complete for new players unless you are willing to pay RC instead.  Take heart, however.  An unfinished Thanksgiving Base has the same value in boosting Theme votes as a completed one.  If you are not at maximum for Theme, you can gain up to 6 more theme votes per day for the Thanksgiving Base.

Thanksgiving Base Decorations:  To see the comprehensive list of Decorations that can be stacked on the Thanksgiving Base, simply use the Move Tool on the Base itself and then, while still active, use the Search (magnifying glass) tool on it.  You can see every stackable Decoration as well as the position it would occupy on the Base.  The same holds true for the Thanksgiving Arch, now an item that can be merged in the Factory using the Maple Leaf rewards from the Thanksgiving Guests.  You can own a total of two Thanksgiving Arches and 3 Thanksgiving Bases.

Basic Rules for Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The following is taken from a post I wrote for an earlier Farm Beauty Contest but I believe all the same rules still apply:

You really do need to maximise the Votes from the four Characters if you wish to achieve the Decoration at 4000 Votes or the Avatar at 6000 Votes.  Asking for Votes from other players is NOT the answer unless you are very close to 200 Votes per day from the 4 Characters or 300 Votes per day from the same 4 Characters.  Try to organise your farm to maximise votes from the very first day.  It can make a huge difference to your vote total.

Originally, you would obtain the Reward Decoration in the Contest if you were receiving a total of 200 votes per day from the Characters without ever needing votes from other farmers.  The Contest length was changed... now I believe you need 182 votes per day to reach the 4000 Vote total that gives you the Decoration.  The Decoration is the most important reward of the contest.

It is the current photograph or Snapshot of your Farm that is the basis for ALL Votes, not the current state of your Farm if you changed anything.  In other words, take your time to organise your Farm BEFORE you take the initial 'Snapshot' for entry to the Contest.  This can make a big difference as every day counts in these contests.

You can take a new snapshot every day but there is no reason to do so if you have maximised your Farm for all possible Votes.

The key to this is balance.  You need to have a variety of Crops on the Farm.  Try to have 16 different Crops growing... the total number needed may be lower from 12 to 13 but it is easy to grow different Crops and you have nothing to lose.

You need to have at least 12 different Machines on your Farm to obtain the maximum Votes for Machines from Dad.  Some players claim that the Salad Machine has counted as two Machines in the past but again, to be safe, move as many Machines onto your Farm as possible before you take your initial Snapshot.

Do the same with respect to your Trees.  You need a variety of Trees.  Duplicates never count.  Most players should not have any trouble in placing 16 different types of Trees on the farm.  I believe that the total needed is less, possibly 12 or 13 but again, it does no harm to be safe.

Finally, there are the Animals.  Butterfly Houses and Beehives of each type count as Animals and every type counts as a different Animal.

Landscape Points count for Votes with three of the Characters.  You do not even need 2300 Landscape Points to maximise these votes.  I believe the actual total now is closer to 2100 points but need to confirm for the current contest.  Recently, the game changed to add Landscape Points to Charm Points for a new total.  I will try to pinpoint the number required for maximum votes.

Expansions are another good source of votes.  You only need to have performed a few expansions to gain maximum votes from Felicia and Dad for expansions.

Another category is your Gallery.  Now that you can register Crops and other items, even low level players should be able to maximise votes for a good Gallery.  Votes are based on the totals of the items you have registered.  Your Gallery 'upgrades' at specific totals.

Finally there are votes for a 'high level' farm.  I have not achieved the maximum on Harvest Moon FDC yet because I believe you still have to be at Level 150 now for this.

'Theme' gives votes from three of the four Characters.  Your best bet to maximise your Theme Votes if you have not played long or did not collect Reward Decorations for any other reason would be to purchase the Turkey Magician from the special sale offer in the top right of the screen and  the Owl Lady and Owl Clock,  They are expensive but if you are not at maximum for Theme, the first  can give you 9 extra Votes for theme each day from the Characters and the Owl Lady and Owl Clock each can give 6 extra votes for theme from the Characters..  If you are unwilling or unable to do that, at least place the Thanksgiving Base for 6 more Votes per day for theme.

EVEN AN UNFINISHED THANKSGIVING BASE GIVES 2 VOTES EACH FOR THEME FROM THREE OF THE CHARACTERS IF YOU HAVE NOT REACHED MAXIMUM FOR THEME.

Theme List is as follows:

Trees

A Farm Organiser Quest and Pillow Collection Mission

A new 11 and 1/2  day quest has been released in tandem with a Collection Mission.  The reward for the Collection Mission is a Rosemary Bush, a new Tree.  I do apologise.  I initially thought the Rosemary Bush was a Collectable.  In fact, it is a Tree.

Note from Freyashawk:  If you have your own Facebook Group, you certainly are welcome to post a link to this site, but please do not simply copy and paste information without giving Freyashawk credit for the work.  I work very hard on these posts and often spend money on Farm Aids to complete them quickly.  A very special thank you to my dear Buddies who send me Fertilisers and Watering Cans!

A new Farm Beauty Contest today took many of us by surprise.  It is the Thanksgiving Dinner Farm Beauty Contest and I will post separately about it.  If you use this site and feel that my work is useful, please consider sending votes to Freyahawk's Harvest Moon FDC Farm.  Your support means a great deal to me.  Harvest Moon FDC placed fourth in the last contest and I owe that distinction to the support of all my wonderful neighbours and members of our Facebook Group, Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk.

Note to new Farmers:  The second half of these Quests require access to the Island.  If you do not have that yet, you are best served by completing the Collection Mission first instead of concentrating on the traditional Quest sequence as the item you receive as a Reward, whether a 'Collectable' like the Rosemary Bush or a new Stove House Recipe or premium Tree, will be added to the Market once the Quest expires but will have an RC price attached to it.

Collection Mission:

You need the following:

Daisies
Buffalo Milk
Pitaya Jam
Persimmon

Not including these in the Crop or Batch Production lists because the number you need to harvest or produce depends on the Collection Item totals you receive.  Note that you now CAN collect items from a Tree without removing it from the Tree Nursery.  Simply use a Super Watering Can on it individually again and again until you obtain the items you need from it.

The Rosemary Bush takes 8 hours to produce!  As a Tree, however, you can speed production or harvest by using Watering Cans and other Farm Aids.

Crop List and Batch Production List are complete now:

Thanksgiving Dinner Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

As stated above, I will create a separate post specific to the Contest but there are a few points that may be mentioned now.  First, the Thanksgiving Base will be available again in the Market after reset today.  You can find the Materials to build it in the various Mystron Shops.  You can own a maximum of three Thanksgiving Bases.

Next, a new Theme Decoration in the form of the Turkey Magician is available in the special sales offers.  He gives 5 Blue Mystrons for 7 times when cleaned and a Blue Gift Box.  Furthermore, if you are not at maximum Votes for Theme, he can boost your total by 9 Votes per day.  This is very important, especially for farmers at lower levels.  These new premium Theme Decorations always are featured again and again in the Farm Beauty Contests and are an incentive for Neighbours to visit your Farm as they give the coveted Blue Boxes.

Another point that must be made, sadly, is that the DIY tab with some of the old Premium Theme Decorations appears on IOS and Android but NOT on Kindle.  Amazon and FunPlus are having some sort of issue I was told... hope it is sorted out soon.  I really like the Kindle!

Halloween Rush Activity Stage Activity


(Above, the Halloween Rush Menu.  Tapping in the closed Treasure Chest allows you to transform your items into Halloween Lights for small rewards including Mystrons, random Candy and Coins.  Tapping on the Reward Item icons on the left side of the screen allows you to claim them when you have sufficient Halloween Lights to do so.)

There is a new Activity on the Activity Stage that lasts a total of 7 days.  At the time of posting this, there are 6 and 1/2 days to run.  Tap on the Stage to the right of your Gallery to access the Activity Stage.  If there is a current activity, you will see animal musicians on the stage.  This activity requires production or acquisition of specific products with values as follows:

Strawberry Candy: 1 Halloween Light
Halloween Pumpkin Soup: 2 Halloween Lights (Kitchen Recipe: 2 Halloween Pumpkin and 1 Milk)
Ghost Jellyfish: 10 Halloween Lights (Catch using Halloween Hook.  Unfortunately, you cannot use the Boost with the Halloween Hook so this will be a random result.  Note that you have to CATCH the Ghost Jellyfish.  Having it in your Barn or purchasing it does not count)
Punch Bowls with Eyes: 30 Halloween Lights (Cook in Stove House).  If you do not have the Recipe, you can purchase it in the Market in the Stove House Department for 9 RC or, on any device EXCEPT Kindle, as part of a package special offer.
  Punch Bowl with Eyes Recipe:
  Ingredients: 2 Sugar, 4 Wine, 2 Lychee, 1 Spooky Eye Fruit.  Requires 5 Power.  This is a simple recipe.  Simply place all ingredients in the Bowl and cook.  You have a maximum of 20 seconds but the Bronze Star should activate after 14 seconds.

  Note: The Punch Bowl with Eyes Recipe originally was a Reward for completing a Collection Mission.  It therefore appears in the third tab of the Stove House menu.

The Rewards are as follows:

100 Halloween Lights: 6 Power
400 Halloween Lights: 10 Yellow Mystrons
800 Halloween Lights:  Pumpkin Cat Decoration . (gives a Gold Box when cleaned.  Originally a Reward for 15th Farm Beauty Contest)
1200 Halloween Lights: Halloween Clock, gives Purple Box when cleaned and stackable.  Can be registered in Gallery

Note that there are little rewards for every Halloween Light you create by claiming it when you tap on the Chest.  For 10 of these, I received 1 Green Mystron, 1 Blueberry Candy and 380 Coins.  For 25, I received Yellow Mystrons instead of Green but I suspect this is always random as is the type of Candy you obtain.  Since then, received every type of Mystron randomly including Blue.

As you can see, cooking the Punch Bowl with Eyes gives the largest number of Halloween Lights but requires both more ingredients and more Power.

To claim the actual Rewards, tap on the icon of the Reward to the right of the vertical bar on the left side of the Activity Screen.

You will find the current 7 Ghost Stories Quest below this post or follow this link:

7 Ghost Stories Quest


20 October 2017

7 Ghost Stories Quest and Lollipop Collections Mission

A new 11 day Quest and Collection Mission features the Grave Dessert Stove House Recipe as Reward for the Collection.  The Halloween Pumpkin Crop again is in the Market.

There are some new options in the game, including a new Pet Slot for the Pet House, a new Island Crop, the Muskmelon, a Durian Tree and another Island Machine in the form of the Popsicle Machine.   All of these are covered below the current 7 Ghost Stories Quest.  The Popsicle Machine has a 7000 Dev Point requirement.

A quick note for players who were at maximum Dev Points but now find they need to raise their Dev Points to 7000:  Build the three new Landmark Decorations in the form of the three Eagle Decorations on the Island to raise your Dev Point LIMIT, then complete Helicopter Orders until you reach 7000 Dev Points.  All the Landmark Decorations simply raise your Dev Point limit... you then need to perform Helicopter Orders to actually increase your own Dev Points.

Note that you now can find all the special fish caught with the Halloween Hook in the Fish Market so you can sell them for shells if you are working on a Jack O'Lantern Machine!  If you achieve 9 Stars in the Fish Book for any of the Hallowe'en Fish, you unlock a new Avatar.  This is true of the Botanic Garden Flowers as well.  Obtaining 9 Stars unlocks a new Avatar.

Another Note:  As the Activity Stage has a board game activity and not a quest sequence currently, there will be no trouble accessing it while you are performing the timed Quest.  Furthermore, any tasks given by the scrolls will be active as well.  On some farms, if an activity is demanded, you will see it listed as a Quest on the left side of the screen until it is completed and you may not be able to access the '7 Ghost Stories' Quest until you complete the task or abandon it. 

The old 'Quiz Contest' and  'A Howling Good Time' Quests from 2016 have been changed radically to created new Lighthouse Missions.  Note that the original special Rewards are not included in the new forms but have been replaced by other Rewards.  These Quests now require prodigious amounts of Crops, although the cost of skipping tasks is far lower than in the timed Quests.  Like all Lighthouse Quests, each 'Part' is time-limited but there is no pressure to begin a new Part once you have completed the previous one.   Kaye Webb, our valued administrator at Family Farm Seaside Freyashawk, logged both of these Lighthouse Quests and you will find them at the very end of this post.

N.B.  The following Crop List and Batch Production List are complete:
