    I would just like to state that I LOVE the new market layout for breeding animals. If using levels to sort, you get all of the same animal on one page. It is fantastic. I also really like that you can choose main, Baha or both.

    I'm testing Unity on a very low farm. However, the transition through pages is very slow. There are no items on this farm. I have no idea what will happen on the real farm. (And my computer was built for design. Its specs are very good.)
    The Renzo game is fluent and well played.

    Edit 1 : - The farmer's wheel works well. After 4-5 consecutive games, there was a little wait between the regular and the party.
    - The new design of the market is very nice and useful. Everyone who gets used to it loves.
    Edit 2 : Sending gifts to neighbors is a bit problematic.

    Unity doesn't work for me. I can't see the status of plants and animals and I can't select one item (plant/animal). How do I control it? It makes no sense. Is there an instructional page on using Farmarama with Unity?

    Unity is taking so much longer to load than Flash.

    Too many sparkles for my liking and the font looks like Comic Sans or worse...

    I switched back to Flash to enjoy the game as I am used to but then switched back again to Unity when I found there is no Renzo Fair in Flash! :)

    I think I like it, mostly because I see items better and everything seems a little clearer. Not any problems so far, except loading time.

    Does market history start tomorrow? Mine is empty :eek:o_O

    The new version is not yet ready for use.
    • I found the text highly unpleasant to look at and some of it is difficult to read (for example, some digits overlap in market prices).
    • The market search function does not seem to work at all.
    • Pressing enter no longer confirms a purchase (in the market and in the seed shop)
    • The red circles on the new pop-up are garish.
    • My falcon and blue jay stalls never displayed.
    • Setting "Client graphics" "Animation" off does not seem work.

    google chrome and microsoft edge browser unity tried and takes your computer's CPU powers high what flash doesn't take high. Will there be a change to this that not so much CPU power is taken from the machine? Have others noticed the same?

    Yes I absolutely notice the same kind of issue when I've done testing today with Opera. With flash my CPU goes between 10 and 20 %, but with Unity it varies between 50-60 %.

    I am looking for an answer to this question also.

    I have Unity put the CPU at about 80 % heights. :(

    Definitely a lot of bugs still, but that is what mass testing is for.

    I like the new animation on the main farm map, it looks great. Renzo's fair works well, however sometimes the aim (balloon burst and bash a mole) is a little out. I was using the touchscreen of my pc instead of the mouse pointer for more accuracy and still missed occasionally. Each mole required 2 taps to hit like the first was just placing the target.

    The graphics on the farms don't appear to be as clear as the flash version, everything is just a little blurry around the edges, but not on all fields. Maybe that is the intent but I found it a little difficult to differentiate between some of the ash trees at a quick glance.

    I had problems manually harvesting and performing planting tasks as the tool is nowhere near the item being actioned. In places the outer edge items cannot be actioned at all, because the tool is off-screen and out of play. And the market is not quite right

    So far so good though, I didnt stay long there to test CPU usage and laptop temperature, as the issues that I had made it preferable to be in the flash version for now, I will do these when I have more time. Looking forward to the final version. I also found the screen text for messages, store, market etc a bit to strong on the eyes, and had the urge to turn my screen brightness down.

    I cant plant second page Baha-plants at all, when I try to push the arrow on right side of window, window disappears. With helper.

    Also: Renzos balloon game isnt working. It wont shoot, mose moves but it dont shoot.

    Also: Everytime I make Ankhs, I have to upload game again to them to show up. Same thing after I collect plants.

    Same here. To the point of not playable, while using a few years old gaming laptop. Switched back to flash after few mins. Not playable for me yet.

    I attempted to use Unity for a full harvest cycle this morning. I can definitely see potential, but it was not a useable option for me just yet. Far too slow, far too glitchy, and it took me over an hour to harvest everything (I will concede I was also texting friends at the time so not fully invested, but my morning harvest & replant usually takes me 20 minutes tops!) I'm still replanting now, but back on Flash.

    I definitely think that once the issues get ironed out this can work really well, it's just not functional as yet. I'm totally willing to keep Beta testing this as they make fixes, but I'll primarily continue using Flash on a daily basis until Unity is working well.

    I am trying out Unity and flipping back to Flash when I come across a problem (not being able to plant with harvester as the seed listing moves just as I get to the arrow). I think it will be great once all the bugs have been eradicated (and I see that they already being put right). :)

    Although I couldn't use it, as the listing didn't have my neighbours at the top as in Flash, I really love that the listing can be changed to alphabetical order! For me this will be a fantastic improvement. Looking forward to that! :inlove:

    I wonder is anyone else having the problem of opening crates in that once you open one you are taken back to the start of the consumable items again to have to scroll to crates each time.
    Yes it also takes longer to load unity. going back and forth between unity and flash to play.

    Yes, it takes forever to open Crates. :(
