Hi guys!

Both me and GDog were given access to the beta to help build the hype for the farm update and I thought I would take some questions about it!

Cubic Castles Farm Pack FAQ:

Basics

What is the farm update all about?
It's an update about making your own farm!

Why should I care?
It's one of the biggest and most fun updates ever. -- I LOVE it!

How do I get started?
Once the farm update is released, buy a starter pack from the Cubit store!

When will the farm update be released?
Once it's done. I believe the plan is to release this month IF POSSIBLE.

How much does the farm pack cost?

Farming: Skip to 1:10 in video

How do I fill my watering can?
Use a crafting bench

How do I craft a watering can?
Iron + Yellow Dye

How do I water crops?
Click the watering can and click on the soil with seed in it

How do I sell crops?
Farmer's co-op, it's in the lobby!

What are recubes?
A currency you get for selling your crops.

How do I get recubes?
Sell farmed crops.

What type of seed should I buy?
There are 5 types of seed:
TYPE -- -- PERK -- -- COST
1) Tomato -- -- No perk required -- -- 10rc
2) Potato -- -- No perk required -- -- 20rc
3) Corn -- -- Perk required -- -- 40rc
4) Egg Plant -- -- Perk required -- -- 80rc
5) Wheat -- -- Perk required -- -- 120rc

Seed count? 10 seeds per pack
Sell price? = Buy price
(You tend to pick up 2-3 times what you plant).

HINT:
Start with tomato and potato and WAIT with buying anything more costly as it all requires perks!

What type of soil should I buy?

There are three types of soil:
1) Rocky -- -- 15rc
2) Decent -- -- 40rc
3) Great quality -- -- 120rc

None require a perk.

The speed of your crop's growth depends on the quality of your soil:

Tomatoes

Rocky -- 3 days
Decent -- 1.5 days
Great quality - 1 day

Potatoes

Rocky -- 4 days
Decent -- 3 days
Great quality -- 2 day

Corn

Rocky -- 5 days
Decent -- 4 days
Great quality -- 3 day

Egg Plant

Rocky -- 6 days
Decent -- 5 days
Great quality -- 4 day

Wheat

Rocky -- 7 days
Decent -- 6 days
Great quality -- 5 day



Good quality soil helps you grow crops faster but it also costs more.

What farming perks do I choose?
There are three major types of perks:

1) Land Management Perks -- It helps you farm more land.


2) Husbandry Perks -- It allows your to raise different types of animals
Example: Cattle Rancher, a husbandry-related perk allows you to raise cows!


3) Crop Perks
These perks unlock the use of corn, egg plant and wheat.


HINT Perks limit you to ONLY 5 plots to start!

Other Farming-Related:

How do I make a profit farming?
Plant your crops and harvest them. You always get more crops back when you harvest. EXAMPLE: 5 plots of tomatos can yield 10-16 tomatoes.

Where should I build my farm? Can I use stamps on my farm?
Anywhere not under something. They need sun. Rain stamps will stop crops from growing.

Farm animals: 12:26

Where can I get farm animals?
Famer's co-op.

What does each animal do?

Hogs = Nothing atm
Chickens = Daily eggs (the same kind you can mine)
Cows = Milk

How do I milk cows?

What can I do with milk?
Use it in cooking!

Ask your question freely!!


Over all I am SUPER hyped about this pack and I am truly amazed how much is in it! 100% worth the wait! Both me and GDog worked REALLY hard to have this privilege. I have made more than 1000 videos so far and GDog has been doing this for ages. Youtubers play an important role in helping bring people back to the game for a new update.

    1 - Cows = milk
    2 - Not fully sure yet
    3 - I assume its for farming faster, like gathering crops.
    4 - I can't wait to find out :P I will try them in filming my next episode. I assume they will not require loading.

    Btw, I have a new vid with info:

    1: Chickens are for Eggs; Cows are for Milking.
    2: Sugarcane is used within an Extrator to make stuff for cooking.
    3: Tractors will auto-collect your Crops when driven over

    Pulling crops will be a rather tedious affair, it is much like how one pulls berries off a bush but with the tractor you run over the crop and it pops it like it is hot. Off goes the produce no need to pull. It is black magic....BLACK MAGIC?! Or should I say Green Magic....those poor corn just jump right off their stalks in fear. The tractor will be a considerable aide when we have large farms >:D! VROOM VROOM HERE COMES PAPA HAYSEED! FEAR MY TRACTOR!
