Light-bulbInstructions on how to pre-plant crops for use on a Co-Op mission

Please_share

I know that instructions on how to pre-plant your crops for a Co-Op mission have been posted before in various threads, but I thought I would create a thread for it with a descriptive title to make it easier for people to find.

As you may have noticed on the Co-Op missions, Gold can be very hard to get. You generally only have enough time to plant one round of crops as the second round won't come due until just right after the Gold has been lost. This means you either have to have a lot of people who join right away or you have to try and plan ahead.

There are actually two ways to plan ahead. The first is to get a group of friends together, decide on which job you are going to do, have one person start it, and then everyone else join it. The problem is, FarmVille limits how many open jobs you can view at a time (the number is 10). Because of this, you may not necessarily see your friend's Co-Op mission. If this happens to enough people, then you may no longer be able to finish the job in time to get Gold.

Another way to plan ahead is to pre-plant your crops for a particular job. While the Co-Op missions won't allow you to harvest more crops than you planted after joining a mission, it doesn't keep track of how much time passes between planting and harvesting. And by following these instructions, you can harvest your crops twice in the amount of time you have to get the Gold aware.



1) Decide in advance how many sections to break your field into. Say you have 300 squares in your field. While you can harvest/plow/plant each individual square after you have joined a Co-Op, it will result in well over 1000 clicks of your mouse by the time you are done. Do you really have that kind of patience? Instead, break down your crops into 4, 5,or 6 sections. (more if you have a larger field and have the patience to go through all the clicks) Each section will need to have the same number of plots in them for this to work. For example, in my field of 300 crops, I have them broken into 6 sections of 50 plots each.



2) Plant the crops for the Co-Op mission you are going to join or start. Leave the last section empty.



3) When the crops have ripened, join or start a Co-Op that uses those crops. If joining a Co-Op, find one with plenty of Gold time left so you will have time to harvest your second round of crops.



4) Plant the crops being used in your Co-Op in the open section. NOTE: The Co-Op knows the difference between Tulips and Grapes. You cannot plant Grapes while in a Tulips Co-Op and then expect to be able to harvest the next section of Tulips and have it count.



5) Harvest the next section of crops. Make sure you do not harvest more crops than you just planted. If you just planted 50 crops, then only harvest 50 crops. The Co-Op will stop counting once you've harvested what you just planted.



6) Plow the recently harvested section and plant the same crops.



7) Repeat steps 5 and 6 until your whole field has been harvested. Do go ahead and plant the same crops in that last section, as the Co-Op system will remember this when you go to harvest the next round.



8) When harvest time comes again, repeat steps 5 and 6 until all your crops are done. Again, make sure to plant the same crops you are harvesting because the Co-Op system won't count the crops unless you do.



9) Once the Co-Op mission is done, you can either join another Co-Op of the same type or harvest your field and pre-plant a new crop.



There are a couple of limitations you must be aware of if you use this method. First, the Co-Op system will not know how many crops have been planted. This is because you are harvesting almost all of what you planted as you go. This can make it seem like your Co-Op is going to fail, but if you know how many crops you already planted, then you will be fine.

Also, once a Co-Op mission is done, you will be left with a field of crops. You will either have to join another Co-Op of the same type (or one that uses the same crop) or harvest the crops once they have ripened and then start on a new type of crop.

Finally, for Co-Op missions where day-long crops are being used, the pre-plan method can actually help you to harvest three times before the Gold expires. Unlike the crops that take 4 or 8 or any other specific number of hours to ripen, crops that take 1 - 4 days aren't actually set on a full 24-hour clock. They will actually ripen a little early. So if you pre-plant Grapes, Tulips, or another day-long crop, log back into your farm about 23 hours after you planted them. See how far along percentage-wise the crop is. Then check back 15 minutes later and 15 minutes again after that. Once you hit 98 or 99%,then just wait on your farm until they harvest. Go through the steps above and check again about 23 hours later. If you do this, you can harvest three during the Gold level (I have done this before so I know it will work).

The steps may seem confusing, but you will quickly understand once you do it yourself. Good luck.

I got better plan I had made my own 9 accounts and playing it I got more then 40 golds

Picture?type=square

Why do all the hastle and just use the airplane!!!!

Picture?type=square

Who cares about freeloaders? They only get the percent they put in...and apparently don't realize that. They can make the difference in finishing the job...which is what is important to me. What does amaze me is the number of people who txt or email me telling me they have joined my job but they haven't. The point of that would be? Do they not know everyone can tell who is doing what on each co-op job?

Picture?type=square

I HAVE COMPLETED CO-OP JOB WITH GOLD WITHOUT ANY HELP BY MY OWN

Picture?type=square

all u have to do is have 4 accounts of ur own like that you can do ur co-0p on your own in time instead of of waiting for friends to join because most of the people here just join to free load and dnt help u at all

Picture?type=square

lol, how can be possible to get anything BUT gold medal, 3 people is all you need to finish job on time (actualy earlier)

Picture?type=square

It is possible to get two of your ribbons without having to count on your neighbours. You can do the grapes co-op by yourself in allotted time if you have the largest farm and not much other stuff on it. When you complete, you will get points for two ribbons: foreman and best.

Picture?type=square

Try do that using combine.........

Picture?type=square

This worked great.

for people with planes who don't have a lot of farm cash and wanting to harvest faster plant your crops and let them grow.when thats done take your plane and click on harvest to see the cost of harvesting early but dont actually harvest . ( it can be pretty expensive at first...) keep checking back in to see what percent the crops are .You can harvest early everything seeded for 1 FV cash at 70% or higher GIVE OR TAKE 10%. If any one with actual percents or more info or changes or corrections please feel free to reply. JUST THOUGHT ITS A GOOD WAY TO SPEND THAT LEVEL UP DOLLAR IF U HAVE A PLANE.

here is a video tutorial on pre planiting of crops for those who want. http://farmvillepassion.blogspot.com/2010/09/video-tutorial-on-how-to-pre-plant.html

@Krystal Pitts..
I understand that you are new and it is obvious that you're a good person with a warm heart ! That in itself is wonderful and I'm sure you have a group of very grateful friends but yes there are a few a reasons for earning gold in the co-op if you are concerned about completing this game.. Click on the blue ribbon at the bottom of your Farmville Play page..you'll see the list of ribbons needed to attain in order to complete sections of the game.. For the co-op jobs, you first earn the gold then white,red and lastly the BLUE ribbon..there are 3 BLUE ribbons to earn to complete the sequence.. eg.~ Fabulous Foreman - you are to complete 20 co-op jobs at Gold as a "starter" to earn the BLUE Ribbon.. "starter" meaning to begin a job.. So although your heart is in the right place, this is still a competitive game and it does help to have a few good friends who can help one another out with their jobs to achieve the ribbons, for in the end, we all need help from our friends to achieve the Blue ribbon in each of the 3 sections.. I have a group of friends who I usually ask before I begin a co-op job if they are free to help and when they begin a job it's vise versa.. I began last November and have just reached level 90 with 5 more ribbons to go to complete the co-op section and 8 more ribbons to complete the rest of the ribbons section of the game.. Krystal, I hope this helps to understand why the co-op's are important to the completion of this game.. I wish you well and the very best, for I have found this game to be a great way of making some very good friends.. Good luck and most of all, have fun !!

do too the combine this is no longer needed :)

Picture?type=square

Here is the latest easiest way of doing this. Please visit my post at http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/topics/42890-farmville-get-quick-gold-in-co-opt-jobs-its-no-more-a-cheat-good-news-for-all-fv-players.. Sorry Alan, not trying to pull your leg.. just helping other... hope you too will change your way of doing this... :-)

This was good when there was no airplane....one could almost do a co op by themselves.

Picture?type=square

Maybe I'm just too new at this.But why is everyone so concerned about people joining a co-op? When I have an open field, I look thru the jobs and see which friend needs help the most. I join and then plant my entire field in whatever they need. Sometimes I get an MVP, sometimes not. Sometimes we get gold, sometimes not. Is it really that big of a deal?

Picture?type=square

I agree with Tim, I have multiple accounts and I can finish gold co-op's all day everyday by myself but I invite people to "freeload" all the time just to help my neighbors.. help your neighbors if you want them to help you, why be greedy?

@tiffany : not every body can afford an airplane!!!
