How do I turn ON/OFF Automation for my Animals, Gear, and Buildings?

To turn on Automation for your Animals, Gear, and Buildings, you have to click on the Automation Panel (the menu with two gears and a number) on the lower-left part of your screen.

Once you do that, you’ll see a menu that pops up with a few Automation options, but also ON/OFF buttons on your Animals, Gear or Buildings. To enable automation for an animal or gear, leave it ON.

In the Automation Panel, you will find these options:

  • On — turns Automation on for all of your animals, gear, and buildings
  • Off — turns Automation off for all of your animals gear, and buildings
  • Custom — restores your custom Automation with the animals, gear, and buildings you have manually selected
  • Open All — opens all Greenhouses so you can harvest and plant more crops
  • Close All — closes all Greenhouses

To hide the Automation Panel, click on the icon with the two gears again or close it by clicking the X in the top-right part of the popup menu.

Alternatively, you can turn on Automation for your Animals, Gear, and Buildings by hovering over the specific item you want to automate — but for this, you have to have Objects info > Complete in your Game Settings > Advanced tab.

When you hover over, you’ll notice a menu bar that includes the name of your Animal, Gear of Building, and a small OFF/ON button directly to its right. Click and choose the option you want.

Automation runs using OPs. Here’s more about OPs and how to get more:
