In tonight's FarmVille update, we see the release of a whole slew of building and decorative items in the game's marketplace. These items all fit into the current Winter Wonderland / Alaskan inspired limited edition item set, and come in the form of two new buildings, along with some new decorative items (including the train that we brought you a sneak peek of earlier today).
The two buildings are the Gift Shop and the Totem House. The Gift Shop is a coin-only item, but it's definitely one of the most expensive items we've seen, being priced at 500,000 coins. Granted, you do receive 5,000 experience points when purchasing the house, which is a great incentive, but the price seems too high for most farmers (including this farmer) to bite. Meanwhile, the Totem House costs 25 Farm Cash. You'll receive half of the experience points as with the Gift Shop, at just 2,500. Both of these buildings will be available in the game for the next 13 days.
Next come the decorative items, of which there are quite a few. Meet us behind the break for a look at these new decorations, including the new Klondike Train set.
There are three basic decorations (those not dealing with the train) available to purchase, with two of them being available for coins. The premium item is the Baby Seal, which costs 20 Farm Cash. This is an animated, decorative animal only - not available to harvest from, and you'll see why as soon as you see the item - this is a baby seal alright, but a baby seal sitting atop an ice flow in the middle of an arctic pond. It's a fairly cute item though, such as it is. The standard decorations are the Husky Statue and the Multidirection Sign, which are available for 100,000 and 20,000 coins, respectively.
Finally, the Klondike Train set comes in four pieces, not including the "Snowy Track" pieces that are once again available in the store (they are available for the same prices as when released as part of the Winter Holiday limited edition theme at the end of November). The train itself can be built using the engine itself, the "Klondike Train" item, which is available for 20 Farm Cash, and then adding on either Fuel Carts or Klondike Cars for 120,000 coins each. Once you've made your train to your desired length, you'll be able to add the caboose, or Klondike Cart item, which is available to purchase for 7 Farm Cash.
All things considered, this does seem like a doable situation for someone looking to build a complete train set on their farm, especially if they have friends that would be willing to gift them either the Klondike Cart or the Klondike Train as a gift, thereby saving the Farm Cash cost. Either way, these train pieces, along with the other decorations released this evening, will be available to purchase in the game for the next 13 days. That gives you plenty of time to redesign your farm, if necessary, to fit your new train track.
Have you already built a train on your Farm? Will you add these Klondike Cars to your train to make it longer? Let us know what you think of tonight's release in the comments.
