FarmVille, the in-Facebook game that simulates… farming, has gotten a new feature that users are buzzing about, and the horses finally have a place to go. Apparently this was a problem.
FarmVille, according to this post, outstrips the next most popular game by nearly twice as many users on a monthly basis- followed by Birthday Cards, Cafe World, Happy Aquarium and FishVille. All players will receive a foundation in the gift boxes, and to add a horse stable, users need to solicit friends and other players to lend help and materials. (So expect to see more FarmVille related begging in your friend feed in the near future.)
FarmVille Freak posted the following instructions from a Zynga Community Manager on adding the horse stable to your virtual farm:
“Once you’ve placed the Foundation on your farm, you will be prompted with a message letting you know that you can post a feed to ask you friends for help building your stable.
Clicking the “Share” button will give you the option to post a feed to your wall. Up to 10 of your Neighbors can click on this feed to receive 100 Coins.
In order to use your Horse Stable, you’ll need to finish building it. Selecting ‘Look Inside’ from your foundation’s menu will show you what you need to complete your Horse Stable.
When you first place the foundation, you’ll have one Brick already. In order to build a complete stable you’ll need 10 of each item. You can get these items one of two ways:
1. From neighbors via the Free Gifts menu.
Neighbors can send you the components you need to build your Stable. Your Neighbors will be able to send you two of the five types of building components to help you complete your horse stables.
Please note that the two components displayed on the Free Gifts Page are randomized. As such, the components displayed on the Free Gifts Page may be different for each user. These two components are changed weekly.
When neighbors send you a building component, it works exactly like any other free gift. After you accept the gift it will appear in your gift box.
After clicking the “use” button under the gift it will automatically be added to your Horse Stable.
2. Purchasing components from the Market,
You can purchase components required to build your Horse Stable from the Market for 1 Farm Cash per item.
When you reach 25 items, you’ll receive pop-up that will allow you to post a feed to your wall. The first ten neighbors to click this feed will receive a random building component for their own Horse Stable construction.
When you complete your Horse Stable, you will receive a popup asking you if you’d like to share the news with your friends. Clicking the Share button on this popup will give you the option to post a feed to your wall that will give up to five neighbors who click on it a free Grey Horse.
Once the Horse Stable is complete, you’ll receive a Grey Horse of your own.
You’re able to store up to 20 horses in your stable and you may only have one Horse Stable per farm. Right now, you can store the regular brown Horse, the Grey Horse, and a new purchasable Pinto Horse.
Every 24 hours, you’ll be able to collect from the horses stored in your Horse Stable.”
