How to call other boats?

Call for other farmers’ boats to trade your own goods for coins and Boat Tickets.On the wharf you have two types of whistles. The numbers on the whistles indicate how many boats you can call. For example, if you have 4/12 whistles, you can call 4 Boats. After calling a boat, the number will decrease to 3/12 whistles.

The Brown Whistle is used to call for boats, the boat that arrives is chosen randomly. You will get 4 new Brown Whistles every day, but the maximum Brown Whistles you can store is 12.

The Blue Whistle is used to call a buddies’ boat. You will get 1 new Blue whistle every day, but the maximum Blue Whistles you can store is 3. Please note that your buddy needs to send their Boat out to the sea first before you can select and call their boat.

Once a boat has arrived on your wharf, tap the boat and start loading an order. The more orders you finish, the more rewards you can get! Tap on the “i” in the Boat Panel to see the rewards.

Mastery Points

All machines on the Island Farm can be upgraded with Mastery points. Mastery points are indicated by blue stars on each machine. The more stars you obtain, the more items you unlock.

Different Warehouse

There are two different Warehouses on Family Farm Seaside- one on the Seaside Farm and one on the Island Farm.

Both Warehouses can be used to store items such as Animals, Machines, Decorations, Buildings and Collectable items but the Seaside Warehouse can only store Seaside Farm items and Island Warehouse can only store Island Farm items.

Here is what the Warehouse looks like on the Seaside Farm (left) and on the Island Farm (right)


The Seaside Warehouse can be bought in the Seaside Store from Level 12.

The Island Warehouse is unlocked when you unlock Plot 10.

Both warehouses can be leveled up to store more items!

Dev Points

What are Dev Points?

Dev Points are needed to unlock items on the island, such as Machines or Trees in the store.

How many Dev Points do I have?

To find out how many Dev Points you have, tap on your purple Level Star at the top, and it will display your Dev Points.

How do I get Dev Points?

You can collect Dev Points on the Island Farm by completing helicopter orders (see FAQ: Helicopter Orders) and certain missions on the Island Farm.

First tap on the Helicopter. Choose an Order and produce all the needed items. Once you have all the needed items, they will be colored. Tap in the middle between the two items and hold and drag the items to the helicopter. (Tap the ‘?’ on the top of the panel to see the tutorial).

READ:  Family Farm Seaside: Laboratory

The helicopter will take all the products and deliver them.

When your helicopter comes back, you’ll see a small icon above the helicopter – here are the Dev Points. Tap the icon to collect the points and rewards.

Why don’t I get Dev Points from Helicopter Orders anymore?

You start with a maximum limit of 5000 Dev Points on your Island Farm. Once you have reached the limit of 5000, you will get Helicopter Bags instead of Dev Points by completing Helicopter Orders.
The limit can be increased by building Landmark Decorations from Decorations -> Landmarks in the Island Farm Store. Each decoration can be purchased multiple times but it will only increase the maximum Dev Point limit the first time you build it.
Please note: Landmark Decorations do not give any Dev Points, but only increase the maximum Dev Point limit. After increasing the limit, you can continue to gain Dev Points from Helicopter Orders.


We now have two kinds of trees on the Island Farm- Fruit Tree and Wood Tree.

How do I get them?

There are two ways to get the trees. One is to unlock the plots on the Island to get the trees on those plots. The other way is buy them in the store.


Go into the store on the island and check the Trees tab.

The amount of trees you can have on the island are limited. For example, you can only have 5 Morus Trees on your Farm. The pricing will change for each tree (depending on how many you have).

You need Dev points (from helicopter orders) to unlock some of the trees. (See FAQ: [Island] Dev Points)

You can get fruits from the Fruit Trees, and then use the fruits to produce other products in the machines.

From the Wood Tree, you can collect Wood. Use a Crosscut Saw (Craft in Hardware, chop 1 Wood per time) or an Electric Saw (click to buy with RC, chop 2 pieces of Woods per time) to collect it.

You can see “10/10” under the name of a Wood tree (when you tap it), this means you can only collect 10 pieces of Wood from it. After 10 times of collecting, the Tree will disappear.

When one Wood tree disappears, you can buy another one in the store. If you have reached the limit, you won’t be able to buy any of that tree from the store. For example, if you already have 7 Oak Trees (reached the limit) on your Farm, no more Oak Trees can be bought.

Then you have collected 10 pieces of Wood from one tree, it will then disappear. At this point you can buy a new Tree.

You can use the Wood to produce other products in the Sawmill and Workshop. (See FAQ: [Island] Buildings)


We have introduced a lot of new machines for the Island Farm. Below you will find an overview:

How to get machines

There are two ways to get machines. One way is to unlock new plots where the machines on these plots will then be unlocked as well. Another way is to buy machines in the Island Farm shop.

Go to the Island Farm Shop and select Machines:

For some machines you will need to earn Dev points to unlock them. For more information on Dev points, see FAQ “[Island] How to get Dev points”.

In the image above you’ll also see that you can only have a total of four of each machine on the Island Farm. If you purchased four Hat Machines for instance, you won’t be able to buy another one.

The more machines you have of a certain type, the more expensive it will get for the subsequent machine of that same type.

How to complete a machine?

If you tap on an incomplete machine, you can see the materials you need to finish it. Some items can be asked from neighbors, while others you will need to craft yourself. Tap on the “Craft” button and it will take you there.

You can slide to the left and right to choose the product that you want to make. Tap the “?” button if you want to see basic information on a product. See below:

You will need enough stars to unlock more products for your machine. Different products require different amounts of stars in order to be unlocked. Check the following images:
