Do you want more room for Animals on your farm? If so, then the Deluxe Shady Trough is for you! This is an upgrade to the regular Shady Trough and will increase your Animal population cap by 5!
Note: If you do not have the regular Shady Trough, you can purchase one in the General Store for 10,000 Coins. You will receive +10 Animal max capacity once the Shady Trough is fully built. After that time, you will be able to upgrade it and get +5 Animal max capacity (+15 total).
If you are level 12 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click on “Upgrade” to get started.
If you do not wish to upgrade to the Deluxe Shady Trough, simply click the blue "Upgrade" button on the menu popup, then click the red "Cancel" button at the bottom right hand corner of the game screen (see image below). Note: You can upgrade to the Deluxe Shady Trough at a later time by clicking on your Shady Trough, then click the blue "Upgrade" button on the menu popup.
Building the Deluxe Shady Trough:Just like the regular Shady Trough, the upgrade needs to be completed before you can enjoy an increased animal capacity.
Your first step is collecting Building Materials. You will need the following items to start building your Upgrade:
- Wood Stain
- Tin Buckets
- Utility Hooks
To collect Wood Stain, click on the “Post” button to post to your Facebook wall – you will get the parts when your friends click on it, or when you click on a similar newsfeed post.
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Tin Buckets and Utility Hooks to your Neighbors. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, you can skip any of these tasks for Farm Bucks.
Note: You can send a request for materials to your Friends every 18 hours.
Once you have collected the required items, click on the “Start Building” button at the bottom of the construction Menu.
Now that the upgrade is almost complete, you will need a little help from your Neighbors to finish the job. The Deluxe Shady Trough requires four additional helpers, so click on the “Ask Friends” button to send some crew requests to your Friends. When they accept, you will see the spots in the Build Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, click the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks.
