Both of My Farms - Have PROBLEMS - HELP 

User ID:  CoalBright

Viking Name: Lace Firewind

Lace Firewind has two farm: the original, named The Farmstead, and an expansion farm, named Seashore Farm.

Computer:  PC - Desktop

Operating System:  Windows 10 

Web Browser:  Google Chrome

What were you doing when the problem started: I harvested crops, wool, etc. and feed my animals on my first farm; went to my second farm, and added a new row of plots for more crops; I harvested wool, etc., feed my animals and then planted new crops. . . that is when I notice the gears were spinning and spinning, but only on the last couple of rows I had planted with seeds. Full Problem with images attached is listed below.

When did the error happen: Initially last night; but its taken me all day to get back to my farm -- repeated server time outs.

Screenshot(s): Attached below, taken whe I finally got back into my farm this afternoon.

Graphics Card: Windows 10 - I figured out how to run the DxDiag file; report is attached below with screenshots/


MY PROBLEM:  I can not pick any crops; I can not feed my animals; I have sparkling lights and/or rolling gears indicating actions I need to take or that I started, and which are still not complete. None of my initiated farm actions have been completed. Above the garden items without gears, I I tried to pick a crop item; I get a normal puff of dust/dirt, but the item is never picked; it is still in the ground with sparkling lights, indicating I need to gather my crops. My animals are in same shape, it looks like I collected eggs, wool, etc and I most likely fed them, but none of these actions appear to be completed. Everything is stuck in some sort of inbetween state.


Last night I noticed that the gear above my newest planted crops were still spinning and spinning. So, I left the farms, expecting every thing to be finished by the time I got back later in the evening. However that was not the case, For the most part the farm program would not load and I would be notified that the server had timed out. This only happened when I tried to enter my farm; I'm able to get to everthing else on the game.


I eventually got into both farms today; and I snipped pictures of both of them. The pictures are alot worse than I expected. when I left the farm I had only a couple of rows of crops with rolling gears sitting above them. I came back to see gears and sparkling lights everywhere; and although some gears gradually disappeared, I cannot do anything on the farm even when the gears disappear. I cannot even reset the fish trap. I put in worms, a gear starts rolling, stays there for awhile and then disappears, but the fish trap is not set; it is once again awaiting worms to get started. 


HELP and Thank you.

Hey! Listen!

Hoy, small fry!

It's dangerous to go alone! Take this!

You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?

The flow of time is always cruel...

After all, a fake is a fake...and no matter how much you dress it up, the real thing always wins!

Shadow and Light are two sides of the same coin...One cannot exist without the other.

YEEESSSS!!! This is aggravating! I'm having the same issue with my chickens. I dunno about my crops... ain't planted in a while. Please fix soon. The only one of my avatars I am sure is affected is WolfMoonshade... She is under my username of meganobr. I have a windows 7 laptop I play on. I first noticed the issue at about 4 oclock this afternoon.

Partial & Completed UPDATE on status of Farms

Partial UPDATE on status of Farms . . . good news


Farm program easily load this morning for both of my Farms. No Rolling Gears in sight. Discovered 1. I could harvest my crops, although most were rotted; 2. my Fish Trap was working when I arrived.  Conculsion: everything I attempted to do yesterday, eventually worked.


Have not yet attempted to 1. plant new crops 2. harvest wool, eggs, etc. or 3. feed animals. 


Will be back to report, when I have attempted each of these actions. Going to take this slowly . . . 1 step at a time. 


Completed UPDATE . . . 

 1. I can plant and harvest new crops.

 2. I can harest wool, eggs, feathers, etc. 

 3. I can feed my animals.


Everythings seems to okay, now; I have no idea what happened and how or why the problem appears to be fixed. Thanks go everyone that helped in fixing things.


I hope the other players having these problems will soon find their problem also resolved.
