This is the page you will see after you have successfully logged in.

Top Menu Line

  • On the top of the website, going from left to right, you will be able to immediately identify your User ID, including your username and your identifying number. This is followed by the name of your farm and its identifying number.
  • Next you will see the amount of money available in your web account and the amount of money in your “meta” account (identified with an “M”).
  • Next in the top row you will see any messages that have been sent to you via the website messaging system (not to be confused with anything you received in Discord).
  • The next identifier is the current season, remember that each season is 3-days, so you will see early, mid-, or late of the current season, and the current game year, consecutively numbered from the start of FSN.
  • Then you will see the actual date, today’s date, and the actual time, based on the time at the East Coast USA (think New York City time). East Coast USA time is almost always -5 hours from GMT.
  • Finally, you might see any ongoing contest information, depending on the season and the current games/contests going on in FSN.

Second Menu Line

  • The next set of information will the be the menu tabs you can use to find expanded information about your FSN account. These tabs are:
    • "Myself"
    • "Interactions"
    • "Finances"
    • "Data"
    • "Market"
    • Wiki
    • Support
    • Settings
  • The tabs listed with here with (“) quotation marks all have a pull-down menu that allows for more detailed information on your account. Each of these tabs are explained later in the article.
  • To the right of settings you typically see an icon with a number that represents any current game that is being played via the website. More on this to follow.

Main Area

Below the menu lists, you will see three separate boxes.

  • Left box
    • Here you will find your current standing in FSN, expressed as a level (like many games have) and your current XP, or Experience Points expressed as ### / ### with the second number indicating the points needed to your next level. As you gain levels in FSN you gain rewards. This is explained further under the “Myself” tab, in the “My Perks” section, described below.
    • Following along in the left box you will see the current version of FSN you are playing.
    • Under this is “Mod Downloads” where you can find the latest files that are being used for FSN, including map files and mods files.
    • Then you have a tab for “Donator Market” indicated by a small shop icon. This will take you to a page discussing the rewards/perks for financially supporting FSN.
    • Then you will find the “Calendar” tab with a small calendar icon. This displays a current schedule of ongoing activities for FSN.
  • Center box
    • Here you will see an ongoing slide show of announcements that is subject to change, but might include upcoming mods, upcoming ideas for the meta version of FSN, etc.
    • Below this is an activity bar showing the current percentage of donations to the donations needed to support FSN for the current month.
    • The next icon displays the ongoing research towards expanding functions in FSN.
    • This is followed by another shop icon with a link to the “Donator Market.”
  • Right box
    • The first item in the right box is the FSN Swear Jar. FSN is a PG-rated game, that rating applies to in-game, website, and Discord conversations. Inappropriate language cannot be tolerated, and the Swear Jar represents fines levied against players how act inappropriately as determined by senior management. The rating of PG is based on USA movie content, in your country that might be a movie rating of 12 or B, but it can be a rating as young as 7. (Think of a family Sunday dinner with your grandparents and avoid using foul language that would offend them.)
    • The next icon is the DC Raffle.
    • The third icon is to submit a support ticket, this is when you need to send in a request for help on your account or on your farm. The next button under this row allows you to suggest a mod for including into FSN.
    • Finally, there is an icon button that allows you to apply to join a position on the FSN staff.
