Introducing, the Crop Dryer! Use this new building to dry your Water Crops to sell or use in crafting Recipes!
When you unlock the Appaloosa River Expansion to the right of Camarillo Country, you will reveal the Crop Dryer.
At first, it will look like a small pile of boxes. Click on it, and then you will see the following pop-up. Click on the “Finish Building” button to get started.
Building the Crop Dryer:
Your first step is collecting construction parts. You will need the following items to start building your Crop Dryer:
- Fan Blades
- Fan Engines
- Door Hinges
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Fan Engines and Door Hinges 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 Crop Dryer is almost complete, you will need a little help from your Neighbors to finish the job. The Crop Dryer 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.
Inside the Crop Dryer:
Click on the Crop Dryer to open the main menu. This menu shows all of the Water Crops you currently have available to sell and how much Fuel you have.
Fueling your Dryer:
Crop Drying is no easy task without the help of some powerful fuel. In order to dry your Water Crops, you will need to fill your Dryer with Fuel. Every time you use your Crop Dryer, it will deduct from your fuel reserves. The amount of Fuel you have left can be found at the bottom of the Dryer menu.
Out of Fuel? There are a few different ways to get more:
- Ask your friends to send you Fuel
- Purchase Fuel Packs for Farm Bucks
- Give it some time— Fuel for your Crop Dryer gradually replenishes itself after 1 hour.
You can obtain Fuel from asking your Friends for help or purchasing it in the General Store.
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Fuel to your Neighbors. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, you can purchase Fuel in the General Store for Farm Bucks.
Using the Crop Dryer:
Once your menu is open, drying Crops is easy. Clicking on an item will dry it and clicking on the green button (B.) will dry all of your Water Crops with one click. Note: The Dry Max Possible will dry as many crops as your fuel supply will allow. The total amount of Fuel you use will decrease from the bar (A.) at the bottom of the Crop Dryer menu. Every time you click on a Crop, it (dried Crop) will be added to your Inventory.
