Late night ranchers tonight were surprised to see not just a decoration release tonight, but an overhaul to the way FarmVille
players will move, rotate, sell, and delete items tonight. FarmVille has debuted a brand new tool that allows you to move items around and rotate them (if the item is rotatable) and also a one-click sell/delete tool that makes getting rid of unwanted items a breeze.
The new Move Tool
looks like a hand icon, and is a sub-button underneath the Multi-Tool. Once you click this Hand Tool, you can then click on an item that you want to move. The item will then be attached to your cursor and you can click anywhere on your farm to place it again. While holding it, you can press the space bar on your keyboard to automatically rotate it to face the direction you want. If you're like me and you've been trying to layout your fences to make a perfect pasture, you will greatly appreciate this change. It's also helpful because with the one-click harvesting change that was released several weeks ago, it made moving animals and trees impossible without first harvesting them.
The new Recycle Tool
is a dual action tool that not only will sell items that you click on with the tool, but can also delete items that are not sellable. It's basically the universal "get rid of this" button, and will be a quick way to clear out your farm. When you click on an item to sell or delete it, you will have the option to turn on Quick Delete which will not warn you about selling or deleting any object less than 1,000 coins (if it isn't a Limited Item). You can also turn off the deletion warning until you switch tools.
All in all, we are very pleased with these changes. Little additions like this can go a long way in interface usability, and we're sure FarmVille players will find these new features to be a huge benefit.
