If you're tired of waiting for your animals, crops and trees to become "ready" to feed or harvest in Pioneer Trail, you can now use the new Fast Forward Boost to speed up the time it takes for these items to get ready. Of course, this Fast Forward Boost isn't simply being given away, and you'll need to build a new Clock Tower to actually access it. This feature is available to users that have reached at least Level 18, and we're here with a guide to help you finish the Clock Tower and its associated goals.
Place the Town Square
Place the Clock Tower
Craft 2 Sun Dials
The Sun Dials are decorations that can crafted using Marble Pedestals and Brass Clock Hands, both of which can be earned by asking your friends to send them to you. You'll receive 450 XP, four Raccoons and two Brass Forges for completing this goal.
Tend 15 Raccoons
Clear 15 Rocks
Use the Fast Forward Boost
After you've completed the first phase of the Clock Tower, you'll be able to access the Fast Forward Boost in the same way as you'd access a Daily Bonus in another building. This first stage of the Fast Forward Boost is worth a 20% time increase. You'll receive four Brass Forges, two Green Lightning and 950 XP for completing this goal.
Tend 40 Animals on Neighbors' Homesteads
Clear 15 Withered Crops on Neighbors' Homesteads
Complete Phase 2 of the Clock Tower
Once you reach the second level of the Clock Tower, the bonus will move from 20% to 40%. You'll receive four Fully Grown Pine Trees, two Great Madrone Trees and four more Brass Forges for completing this goal. These Great Madrone Trees are incredibly special, in that they take 10 days to become ready, but are worth 640 experience when you harvest them. Your Homestead is limited to owning just 20 Great Madrone Trees, and they can't be stored.
Ring the Chimes
Craft 2 Stone Gargoyles
Place 15 Great Madrone Trees
Finish the Clock Tower
When you've finished the final phase of the Clock Tower, the Fast Forward Boost will increase to 60%. You can craft the Stone Gargoyles (which are decorations) by using Crude Stones and Chisel Kits. The Chisel Kits come from friends, while the Crude Stone can be earned when clearing Rocks. For completing this final goal, you'll receive 6,400 XP, an Aged Salmon Boost and two Coastal Pine Trees.
Overall, you'll have two new collections to complete along with this feature: the Clock Tower Collection and the Madrone Collection. There are also Brass Forges, Raccoons and Great Madrone Trees to send to your friends via the game's free gifts page. Good luck finishing off these goals and accessing the Fast Forward Boost!
