Jade Falls Shipping Licence Requirements

Today, players began to experience prompts with respect to the requirements for earning the Jade Falls Shipping Licence.  These are as follows:

Upgrade Mountain fully to Level 10.
Upgrade Imperial Docks fully to Level 10.
Master all ordinary Jade Falls Crops
Upgrade Tea House fully to Level 5.


FarmVille farming has become more sophisticated with the introduction of each new Farm.  On the original Home Farm, there is only one location where plots can be tilled and Crops grown.  The English Countryside, the second Farm to be released, is no different in this respect, nor is the third Farm in the form of the Lighthouse Cove.  The Lighthouse Cove did introduce a new, rather tiresome option, however, in limiting the number of Plots that can be tilled at any level of expansion.

The Winter Wonderland, which is the fourth Farm, limits the number of Plots that can be tilled at any expansion Level but offers only the snowy ground.  It is when the fifth Farm in the form of the Hawaiian Farm was released that a new option was given in the form of Water Crops.

The sixth farm to be released was Jade Falls where sophistication of Farming achieved new heights, both literally and metaphorically.  Here Crops can be grown on the Main Field, in the Water and in Paddy Fields elevated above sea or river level.  As with all Farms introduced after the English Countryside option, the number of Plots that can be tilled is limited for each of the three different locations at any expansion level.

For the purpose of achieving the 'Beat the Jade Falls' goal and obtaining the coveted Shipping Licence that allows a player to transfer items freely between Farms, 20 different Crops must be mastered fully.

For each Crop, there are three Mastery Levels and each is given a Star.  Full Mastery is 3-Star Mastery.  You will find Crops grown on all three Locations in the list of the 20 Crops that must be fully mastered in Jade Falls.

The Crops that must be mastered do not include the 'Forbidden' varieties and consist of the following:

Crops that can be grown at Jade Falls are unlocked in the same way that new Crops are unlocked at any other Farm in FarmVille.  To give it the simplest interpretation, it is FARMING that unlocks new Crops.  A player's XP or Experience Level, reflected in the player's general Level  as well as specific requirements in some cases for the Mastery of a specific Crop in a Crop Sequence are included in the requirements to unlock new Crops on every Farm.

In the process of achieving the ultimate goal, one will receive small rewards as one completes each requirement.  Given that the sole requirement for obtaining the Shipping Licence for the Lighthouse Cove is to upgrade the Cove fully, the amount of labour required to achieve the equivalent at Jade Falls is staggering.
 

The cost of purchase for the Lighthouse Cove Shipping Licence is 75 Farm Cash while the cost of purchasing the Licence for Jade Falls is 200 Farm Cash.  It can take a long time to obtain all of the materials required to upgrade the Cove to Level 10 but at least all of the materials are available as Free Gifts.   Where the two construction projects at Jade Falls are concerned, there are two materials that can be obtained only through Wall Posts or outright purchase.  This makes the task even more daunting.  Furthermore, the materials used for these projects have no other function and therefore any excess is waste where the three materials used to upgrade the Cove could be applied to other building projects as well.
