    I planted mine ages ago thinking the change to a 30 mins task meant something was coming. So far, I look a little foolish.

    Storing the farm does not store Brandine.

    Thanks for the reminder. It did work once before so worth trying.

    It usually only speeds up if it's required to kick off an event, but I guess we'll see!

    I was thinking that, too. Had a moment of panic that maybe they'd changed her.

    Yes they did. I planted corn a week before the carrots and it finished. I definitely received the 45k too.

    Thanks for clarifying that. I don't have Brandine and when I looked her up I thought it was implying that it would.

    So is there any way to reset Brandine if she goes "missing"?

    Same for me. A sweet 45K.

    And if it doesn't this time, then it doesn't.

    Many desperate emails to customer service, I'd imagine. Same as Lisa, Homer, Rod, Todd, Fat Tony, Maude, Kang, Bumblebee Man, Arnie Pye, SVT, Moleman, Sherri&Terri, Jimbo, Kearny, Dr Nick, whatever other unassociated characters exist that I'm forgetting.

    I think folks are thinking of the pomatoes quest. That quest did not speed up corn for free, but it stayed in your task list so you could finish it whenever your corn was done.

    Does this still happen now that we have the town census? Just curious.

    That's my concern with growing corn now. If the update is released and they add new plants (which they likely will since they switched tomacco to 30 min) and it's not part of an actual quest line then I can't build it until the corn is done or I store cletus' farm which is a waste of money.

    Curious about this as well. I had Lisa disappear one day. She wouldn't show up in either SF or KL. She had been in KL and when I went back to SF she was gone from both. I went into the census and it showed her as waiting for something to do. Tapped the "go to" button and she appeared.

    I actually don't know for sure. When Smithers kept getting stuck in the control building, the census listing showed "error" next to his name. In terms of the characters who just wander away, though, I haven't heard anything recently.

    Yep, a $9K gamble on winning $45K. Your choice.

    You can also wait and try to time it closer. That's what I did with Easter, and I got the $45K.

    I could have predicted this. Every time I get corn under 30 days, an update requires a new crop.

    Okay, complaint over! I'm bumping this back to the first page since it'll be useful information.

    The corn did speed up on growing the carrots for many of us. Sorry if it did not work for you.
