Farmer Regatta Quest and Anchors Collection Mission and Farm Wedding Beauty Contest

Note:  Last updated on Friday, 12 May.  The unfinished Wedding Base as well as 8 of the first material needed for the Base is being given by Felicia in your Messages menu.  Place it and take a new Screenshot to have it counted as a Theme Decoration even though incomplete.  The game states that you should receive 2 Votes from each of the three Characters who value Theme for the Wedding Base.    The special sale offers currently include a Bride Mouse, a theme item in the current Farm Wedding Farm Beauty Contest. You will find a section about the current Farm Wedding Beauty Contest at the end of this post.

Note from Freyashawk:  Thanks to every one who supported Harvest Moon FDC, it ranked 4th in the last Farm Beauty Contest.  Many, many thanks to all who voted for this farm.  I am quite happy to share my work with every player but please, please do give Freyashawk credit if you use the information on this site in your Facebook Group or anywhere else.  I work hard and spend premium cash to log these quests quickly.

You will need a Hot Dog Machine to complete the Collection Set, which also includes a Butternut Squash Tree and the Seashell Chest Decoration that is the Reward for this Quest.  Completing it within the time period of the Quest will give you an additional reward in the form of a Clam Friendship Flower.

The reward for the Anchors Collection Mission is another Stove House Recipe in the form of the Spinach Lasagna Recipe.

Spinach Lasagna Recipe:  Requires 1 Pasta, 3 Buffalo Milk Cheese, 1 Spinach Salad and 7 Power. Menu states that it requires 20 minutes to cook but there are two separate Stars that can be activated for this Dish.  At 2800 Flavour Points, you will achieve a Bronze Star Spinach Lasagna and at 4200 Flavour Points, you achieve a Blue Star Spinach Lasagna.  If you put all ingredients in the Oven at the same time and set the timer for about 9 1/2 minutes, you can finish the dish with a Bronze Star.  I think 10 minutes would be the time if you could set the timer quickly, but I am very slow with that.   I was not able to make the Blue Star version by placing all ingredients together and setting the timer for 13 minutes, but it almost made it, so if you place the Pasta and Buffalo Milk Cheese in the Oven first, setting the timer for 2 minutes, then add the Spinach Salad and set the timer again for 13 minutes, you will have a Blue Star Spinach Lasagna.  The Spinach Salad will reach maximum flavour points at 13 minutes and 20 seconds, which means that is the point where it will burn, causing the dish to fail.  The other two ingredients can be cooked for a much longer period but you can achieve the superior dish (not that you need it for anything!) in the form of the Blue Star rating by cooking the Pasta and Buffalo Milk Cheese FIRST for a couple of minutes before adding the Spinach Salad and setting the timer again for 13 minutes.  (I really am not that fond of the Stove House personally.)

Premium Items Needed:

You will need fruits from a number of premium Trees.  The Butternut Squash Tree is needed both for the Collections Mission and for recipes included in tasks for the traditional Quest sequence.  Other trees are Golden Peach and Pecan.

New Farm Wedding Farm Beauty Contest
xxxxxxcxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One of the least understood aspects of Family Farm Seaside is the Farm Beauty Contest.  Farmers often do not use their own items to maximise the votes they receive daily from the four Characters. Before you think in terms of help from other farmers, please make certain that you have done everything possible to get the votes from the 4 Characters.

The Farm Beauty Contest is unlocked when you reach Level 30 now.  At that point, you will see a golden icon of a Trophy in the middle of the top of the screen.  You will be able to vote three times for a neighbour each day.

Remember that you need 200 Votes per day to obtain the Decoration as a Reward.  Start on the first day by organising your farm and you should be able to do it without any votes from others if you are diligent.

For maximum votes, you first need to balance your Farm.  Have 16 DIFFERENT Crops planted, have at least 12 DIFFERENT Animals, 12 DIFFERENT Machines and 12 DIFFERENT types of Trees on your Farm.  You may need at least 13 different types of Animals and Machines and Trees.  The numbers change from time to time.  What you should know is that Beehives and Butterfly Houses are considered Animals and each different type will count towards your total.   The Crops need not be mature to count.

Landscape Points took the place of Charm Points when the Guest House and Pet option were introduced to the game.  Even low level players should be able to place sufficient paths with Decorations to achieve maximum in terms of Landscape Points.  You do NOT need 5000 Landscape Points nor even 3000... you can obtain the maximum number of Votes for Landscape I believe with as low as 2300 Landscape Points.  This was true in the last contest.  I will confirm for this one, but with 3000 Landscape Points, you definitely will achieve maximum votes for 'beautiful paths'.  (24/24 from
THREE Characters)

Note that in some cases, you need not register the Decoration in order for it to count towards your Theme votes.  It does have to be in your current snapshot, however, so make certain that your farm is designed for maximum votes BEFORE you take the photograph.

Some low level farmers have reported the following:

With 442 Landscape Points, you get 9/24.  With 775 Landscape Points, you get 13/24 votes for Landscape Points.  With 1169 Points, you get 17/24 votes for Landscape.  With 1500, you get 18/24.

Easy Theme Points:  Make certain that you purchase and register the three different pieces of Carpet in the Decorations section of the Market (east costs 1500 Coins), buy and register the Wedding Carpet for 1 RC and purchase and register the Wedding Chair for 12000 Coins BEFORE you take your initial photograph for the Contest.  If you really want the Avatar, buy the Bride Mouse for 9 extra votes per day from the Characters.  You will find her in the special sales offers.  Note that you will receive 3 Wedding Carpets when you complete the first half of the Quest sequence but if you wish to maximise your Theme immediately, you can purchase and register one from the Market.
