Search and Pick Your Farming Targets
Before you start farming for resources from neighborhoods in the TGFF, the first rule of thumb is that the inactive neighborhoods are always golden. You want to keep a healthy list of the golden and ripe neighborhoods on your list. You want to farm these inactive neighborhoods for all the resources possible. Below are some guidelines on how you can search and pick your the Godfather: inactive neighborhood farming targets.
Farmed Neighborhood Respect Requirement
To select your TFFF farming targets, you will need to have some basic respect requirements. The respect value is a great way to tell whether or not a neighborhood has had resource buildings built. You should skip the low respect neighborhoods because they typically have very low level buildings and is not worthwhile for your in-game resource farm needs.
Note and Compare Respect Level
One way to quickly notice if the enemy neighborhood is still active is by observing their respect level. The Godfather: Five Families respect is mainly gained through the buildings, research, and training of troops. This means that if someone is active in game, he or she will undoubtedly gain respect from playing. This works in your favor that you can seek out inactive players by noting the neighborhoods that have had no Respect value increases.
Look Out for TGFF Nighborhood (Mansion) Level
Another great way to tell whether or not a target is great for resources is by bookmarking the neighborhood. You can then tell their Mansion level from the bookmark. Because higher level neighborhoods aka Mansions can hold more building plots, you can safely bet that higher mansion level inactive players will hold more sources for your target.
Observe Surrounding Activities
Observe the surrounding playing activities by other players or your target farm. You can tell whether or not a player is active by noting the Cityscapes that he or she may hold. Also if someone is advancing heavily in the area, you can note that as well because the player may also farm the neighborhood that you wish to farm. This can lead to lower resource farming gains.
Neighborhood Distance Matters
When selecting and picking your Godfather: Five Families neighborhood farms, you do not want to pick targets too far away from your home base. You do not want to pick up farms that are 1 hour away from your neighborhoods because it will take forever for you to obtain the resources. Start with locations that are close to home for maximum resource farm.
Record Down the Farming Targets
After hand pick your in game resource farms, remember to create a spreadsheet that has all of your target farms. Record down the location, the amount of resources looted, and the time when you loot and attack for the resources. By recording down these vital information, it will better prepare you to really maximize the inactive farming potential of the game in The Godfather: Five Families.
Use Enough Trucks to Haul Your Loots
Always remember to send enough delivery trucks so that you can gain the maximum resource loots possible when pillaging other neighborhoods in the Godfather: Five Families. You do not want to miss out on resources simply because you did not send enough units to carry them back!
Give Resource Time to Grow Back
Another reason why you want to record down the time when you attack neighborhoods is just so you can compare the amount of time that resources grow back at your farms. You can compare the amount of time it takes for your target farms to fully regenerate its resources. By planning and timing your Godfather: Five Families neighborhood attacks, you can optimize your resource gain.
Watch for Reactivity and Newly Trained Troops
Never assume that once a player or farm is inactive, it will be forever inactive. The inactive Godfather: Five Families farms can become active at any time. So you will need to be careful of sending your troops after these inactive farms for resources. Because of this, you should always send enough units so that if there’s resistance, your troops can still kill your enemies.
Be Aware of Guesthouse Reinforcement Traps
In addition to Godfather: Five families farms players suddenly become active again, you need to be aware that the player may also receive Guesthouse reinforcements that can kill your units as well. This one is a little harder to avoid, but just keep this concept in mind.
Watch for Activity
Lastly, always keep a tab on how your enemy is doing and whether or not the Godfather farm is still inactive, you do not want to walk right into farms who had just become active again because that will mean no more looting of the resources.
