Im not going to call it a clone but yes it is similar to fb. I like the updates you have made, mainly reduced growing time. I personally prefer this to farmville because its easier, crops dont wither and special items are less expensive as well as the scyth option, the clicking forever in fv got annoying. Other than the slow start and the difficulty getting rc I think this was well done, I have enjoyed playing it.
Keep up the good work :)
