Golden Frontier Prospecting Update

The San Monsano Update was released on 8/17/2016. It’s all new, and will take a bit of getting used to. Follow the quests, and make sure you have the newest free gifts in your inventory! You will use a lot of energy… save for a coffee house if you don’t have one. Tend neighbors’ clickables while we still have them, or trade in the trading post for energy. 

Nothing but Energy is used in San Monsano from your inventory. The Greenhouse cannot be used for planting, Urgent orders are not able to be used!


Best advise is to follow the quests and don’t buy extras right away… you will run into troubles with not having enough Vouchers!

Quest Info <—- click here!

San Monsano Complete

It will cost 20 food to travel to San Monsano. Click the Map icon to bring up the map. Then click the Yellow arrow on the right TWICE to get to the 3rd map where San Monsano is located.

Vouchers are the currency here instead of coins… they will be limited at first until you get going. Don’t go crazy buying extra buildings, and planting extra trees or crops because you will run out of Vouchers and won’t be able to proceed further until you acquire more! Click the picture below for more voucher info!


New Free gifts: Spices and Worker Incentive… Have BOTH on wish list, but you will need far more Workers Incentive than spices!

Free Gifts

Workers… huntsmen are not used to make recipes, but rather new Prospectors. There are 2 sizes of Prospector’s Houses: small and large. They are time limited and disappear after their time expires. You need to buy more each time they disappear. The Small Prospector’s House gives you 1 Prospector and the Large gives you 2 of them.
