    Still a long way to go. Right now I have 2207 fertilizer and 1943 corn. :roll:

    I'm far enough away from it not to bother. All characters who can earn currency are on jobs so I know I'll get there eventually. The 'level up' sign that is constantly there is a bit offputting but I guess when Phase 2 comes along and I can level up again there will be a wider range of tasks to eRn currency with.

    I'm at 2,942 fertilizer and 2,442 corn. (Already unlocked Lvl 7)

    I've been sending everyone who can earn fertilizers on those tasks, but I'm still so far behind? At the rate I'm going, I probably won't have it crafted by the end of Act 1, but since it'll still be around for Act 2, I'm not stressing (yet).

    I think it's really annoying to have the 'Springfield Farmer's Market' crafting task in my task bar. That suggests they expect me to complete it soon. I need around 12000 fertiliser and 2000 corn to craft this so its not gonna happen any time soon. I'm beginning to wonder if they've miscalculated the pay outs from the jobs.

    In previous events I've been able to achieve everything, in each section of the event, AND earn donuts. (By hard tapping - not spending donuts either.) This time I think I might just get the mutant pet before the end of act 1, with no chance of earning donuts.

    I have been tapping every day, usually every couple of hours. If I missed a day it would make a big difference. During the previous event I actually spent two days flying but it made no difference as the pay out of currency was high enough to allow for this. I think they want us to be spending lots of donuts. Judging by the scores on my leaderboard I think a lot of beans are being purchased. I want to save my donuts for buildings, not spend them on this.

    I've noted that people are saying that most charcters are available for tasks after Lvl 7 of monsarno...but I see "locked" tasks in some characters (quite a few) until way after 7 (e.g. Lou is lvl 14).....

    Am I missing something?

    I will be at Lvl 7 in a couple of hours hopefully, so would be great to know.....

    thanks


    Level 7 is the limit for Act 1. According to the Tapped Out Wiki page, other Monsarno buildings will be available in Act 2 to allow other characters tasks.

    2670/15250 Fertilizer
    1985/4600 Corn

    I'm glad I seem to be earning Fertilizer at a faster rate than Corn now.

    I hope to put my Market in my town square, but I'll have to see how the pavement works with it.

    The corn earners are few. Very few unfortunately, I hope I'll manage to craft the market...

    I am 406 donuts away and have been tapping so much that I've ground my iPad screen into a telescope mirror.

    Do we really need the Farmers Market?

    It's like a lot of buildings in SF, it's not a question of do we really need it, but do we want it!

    I think it looks good and I'm not crafting anything else until I get it. It's going to take me a while though. :D

    Every 3 hours it generates 75 in game cash + 7 XP

    Thanks for the tip. It looks nice and all but I may skip getting it so I could level up the research center faster

    Level up the Mansanto (or whatever) building to level 7 first. Once you hit level 7 everyone earns more fertilizer for their tasks. Example the 2 hour task "Don't care about the future" earn 5 fertilizer for me now instead of the 2 or 3 it was previously.

    Just hit lvl 7 yesterday. Hopefully I'll be a lot closer to the farmer's market in a few more days.

    I am at 6717 fertilizers and 3288 corn. I should be able to get it before act 2 starts.

    I have 6472 fertilizers and 3439 corn so far; at this rate I will have enough to craft the farmer's market before the end of Act 1. But I just see a webpage that list out the upgrade requirements and rewards for each level of the monsarno building (not sure it's reliable or not, maybe someone can double check it); and if it's correct, I wouldn't build the market until after I upgrade my research centre to level 16 at the very least.

    Just made a snap decision - went for the cane, almost have enough for two of them. So the Farmers Market looks pretty far away...

    Interesting, if true those are some pretty costly upgrades. Just for lvl 16 the cost is similar to buying the market. I have a hard time believing the price vs the benefit will make sense.

    I don't understand how this is even achievable. I have reached building level 7, I tap all day every day, I visit all my neighbours everyday, I achieve all my tasks every day and I still only have just over 2000 fertiliser and 1900 corn.

    I think I'm going to hold out for the market, I do want the cane, but I'll get that after.

    I'll have a look at yours when I visit you tomorrow, I'll probably end up wanting more than one :D

    I've got loads of characters, I don't know if there is a limit on how many can do the event tasks.
    There might be a thread on this, I'll go and check :D
