FarmVille: Animal Feed Trough Attracts Wandering Animals

FarmVille has released a new feature today – an Animal Feed Trough. This new building. part of their buildings with a purpose series, allows you to entice wandering animals to your farm with fresh animal feed, giving you the opportunity to adopt them.



Once your Animal Feed Trough has been placed onto your farm, you will need to ask for Animal Feed. This request goes out to your wall so friends and neighbors can help:



You need to completely fill up your FarmVille Animal Feed Trough in order to have a wandering animal stop by. It takes 20 bags of feed to do this:



Animal Feed can be collected from your News Feed wall, from visiting your neighbors Animal Troughs, or by purchasing in the Market. Each bag of feed costs 1FV$.

Once you find animal feed on your wall or from a neighbors trough, you will find it in your Gift Box. Simply add it to your trough.

FarmVille will be adding new wandering animals to collect with this new feature. As soon as we know more about what those animals are, we will let you know!

Good luck collecting the new Wandering Animals with your new FarmVille Animal Feed Trough!

Mafia Wars Italy
Mafia Wars Italy opens October 21, 2010! A select few will gain beta access on the 18th. This new city will use the Lira as its currency so watch out for the Italian Satchels of Lira popping up soon!

Here is what we have been able to find out, according to Zynga customer service:

Mafia Wars Italy Regions

Italy ‘Regions’ are like Vegas ‘Districts’. There are 5 initial Regions in Italy’s release:

  • Region 1: Roma

  • Villa
  • Winery
  • Fishery
  • Auto Boutique
  • Soccer Stadium
  • Port
  • This winter there will be 1 additional property released:

    Note: The Port is similar to your Chop Shop, but instead of requiring parts to craft an item, it will cost Lira.


    All properties will require the following new building materials:

    Italia Hardwood, Marble Slab, Stone Column, and Terracotta Tiles.

    As we saw with the Las Vegas properties, there will be 1 extra exclusive part required for each property in order to complete building:

    Villa – Volcanic Bricks, found in Roma (Connect with La Familia)
    Winery – Wine Barrel, found in Palermo (Build the Winery)
    Fishery – Fishing Net, found in Venezia (Smuggle Goods Through a Fishery)
    Auto Boutique – Motor Oil, found in Milano (Rob a Collector)

    property we will post a complete chart!

    More Mafia Wars Italy Facts


    Fact: You will no long need to master all paths to finish a tier. Beating a boss will automatically advance you to a fully unmastered map on the next tier.

    Fact: Italian Boss fights are designed similarly to the Beat the Feds event. In theory, a really strong player could beat a Boss all by herself, but very few players will be able to do that. The Boss fights were purposely designed to encourage cooperation with your mafia to take down the Boss(es) together. You cannot use two Boss Fight consumables in a row (Health Kit, Shiv, Grenade, Stun Gun) Boss Fights will be timed and the boss will not heal until that timer expires, at which point, he will heal to full strength. Each Boss has a different timer.

    Fact: You can request help on a Social Job every 8 hours

    Fact: Some job consumables will be harder to obtain and may require doing multiple jobs (like New York City required Concealable Camera Loot as a consumable requirement for the job that produced Blackmail Photos) You will need Cooked Books (from Milano) to do the job (in Napoli) that produces Hidden Charges.

    Fact: Like Vegas Properties, each level will require more parts. There are ten levels, depicted with Roman numerals (I-X)

    Fact: Italy does not have a buildable vault like Vegas. However, it is Italy, and there will be a laundering fee again for the bank.

    Fact: Like Bangkok and Vegas, Energy and Stamina requirements for jobs will vary depending on a player’s level.

    Fact: There are no tournaments in Italy.

    Fact: Robbing will be made available 3 days after release to allow players time to build up properties.

    As soon as we have the loot and boss fight stats,
    we will post them!

Spoiler Alert!

The following post details each FrontierVille quest, allowing you to plan ahead when playing the game. If you do not wish to know what quests lay ahead of you, please do not read

Want to know what lies ahead in FrontierVille? Want to make sure you are stocking the required supplies in order to level up quickly? Then keep reading!

Below you will find a detailed listing of each quest, in the approximate order you will come across it. The order is not 100% exact, as each player will complete the order slightly differently, but this will give you a solid idea of what to expect. These quests are also not Level specific. Leveling is based on the accumulation of experience only, whereas new quests are provided to you based on the completion of previous ones first.

We will update this post as we reach new quests, and when possible have detailed what rewards are earned at each stage. Be sure to bookmark this post in order to check back often for new updates!

Note #1: The first few quests are not included as they are simple tutorials that the game provides, and we did not feel they needed any explanation here.

Note #2: Last updated Oct 18, 2010.

Note #3: Please remember, these are not in the exact order you will see them as each person will complete the order slightly differently. You can only have 4 active quests at any one time so your order may differ from the list below.

Note #4: The developers have been changing and balancing the game often. Some wording may be slightly out of date. I am doing my best to keep everything current but cannot see exact wording on quests already completed.
