How to improve my farm animal's specialities
You improve your farm animal's specialities when you perform various actions. Most of the time, you must set a certain length during which you can improve one or more specialities of your farm animal. There are other ways of improving his/her specialities, you can in particular participate in as many fairs as possible, perform all the actions listed within your farm. When a farm animal has acquired all he/she could concerning specialties for a given action, the action bar becomes 100% full.

The maximum level to reach in a given speciality is determined by the capacity in this same speciality. It is impossible to exceed the capacity in a given speciality unless you decide to get a bonus or an item meant to exceed this capacity. The full speciality bars represent your farm animal's level by taking into account the bonuses and items that allow you to go over the capacity. If you accumulate the right items and numerous bonuses, you will have more chances of winning more agricultural fairs and see your farm animal's reach the highest ranking! Note that if farm animal's level exceeds his/her capacity in a given speciality, this can only be related to the bonuses, items or so-called "exceptional" actions performed by your farm animal.
Your farm animal's natural Selection Index
The natural Selection Index or "genetic Index" is a key indication in Farmzer, it determines your progress in the game. The game's goal is to improve your farm animals' species. In order to do this you must breed which will allow you to welcome in new farm animals. These farm animals will have a higher or lower capacity than their ascendants depending on the average natural Selection Index of their ascendants. The higher this average is, the more the farm animals' capacity improves!

The genetic Index varies according to the activities you do. Some actions can greatly increase it, for example all the agricultural fairs. Only experience in Farmzer will permit you to understand how to maximize the genetic Index in a minimum of time! Be careful, some characteristics such as the age, the gender, the species, the health, the strength, the mood or the hygiene can impact the genetic Index, you will find out while progressing in the game! This indication permits you to improve the new farm animals' capacity only when the mean of their ascendants' natural Selection Index exceeds 50%. To sum up, the calculation is very simple: if the average natural Selection Index of the two direct ascendants is superior to 50% then the new farm animals' capacity will be higher to the average capacities of the two direct ascendants! This will result in an improvementof the species. Your farm animals' capacity will develop in a way permitting to improve their level indefinitely. This improvement is even more important in the best specialities of your farm animal. This indication will only reach its maximum when you took really good care of your farm animal!!!

Finally, note that players are used to talk about genetic Index to replace the word natural Selection Index. Also the expression "improve the genetic Index" is often replaced by the verb "genetic Indexize" one's farm animal!
Your farm animal's level
The level is the total obtained when all the specialties are added together. Its amount can never exceed the capacity if you don't use any bonuses or items.

That's why the only way to progress in the game is to increase the farm animals' capacity. In order to do this you will have to breed to get farm animals with better capacities!
The capacity of a animal
The capacity of a animal represents the maximum value that its level can reach without using bonuses or items.

It is calculated when it first appears in the game, and remains the same throughout its existence.

The greater a animal's potential (i.e. its capacity), the higher its value.

It is up to the animals' farmers to look after them as best as possible in order to capitalize on this potential, using a variety of activities that will increase the animals' levels until they reach their capacity.
Your farm animal's height
Your farm animal's height varies according to his/her species and age.

You must be careful to maintain the right balance when you perform actions meant to increase his/her strength. In order to do this, respect the advice given in the game when you do actions which impact his/her height.

Your farm animal's lineage
In the beginning, you choose for yourself your farm animal's species then you will have to breed to make new farm animals appear. Each time you will have to find the right partner among all the farm animals of the game to constantly improve the farm animals' capacity. It is by choosing your partners wisely and by making new farm animals appear that you will form superb lineages of farm animals!!!

The "descendants" appear thanks to two partners called the "ascendants". Together, the "ascendants" and "descendants" form a lineage that can be Purebred or non-Purebred. A lineage is called Purebred when all the "ascendants" are of the same species. If it is not the case, then it is a non-Purebred lineage.
Your farm animal's mood
When you do activities with your farm animal, they have an impact on your farm animal's mood. You must be careful to maintain the mood bar as near as possible to 100% to avoid your farm animal's health from decreasing. The closer the mood is to 100%, the more chance your farm animal has of getting better results in its actions.

To maintain this bar at a good level, joining a farm can prove beneficial.

The prestige medals
The prestige medals are the best indicators for knowing instantly what a farm animal is really worth. They are calculated by comparing, in a given speciality, your farm animal's capacity with the capacity of the standard farm animal (or default farm animal) of the species. The prestige medals are only obtained when your farm animal's capacity exceeds in a specific speciality a certain threshold, in comparison to the standard threshold (or species default threshold). When you want to breed, you should choose a farm animal which has the most prestige medals for his/her species (beware: the ~~CARACTERISTIQUE[59][NOM]~~ will inevitably be of a higher amount).

These exceptional rewards guarantee your farm animals' excellence and are obtained one after another, after a long selection process of the best farm animals.
Your farm animal's specialties
Your farm animal has 6 specialties: liveliness, physical Characteristics, behavior, vision, command and personality. The goal of the game is to increase these specialties as much as possible. Note that the maximum of these specialties is defined by your farm animal's capacity.

In Farmzer, the species have different capacities. For example, a farm animal of species "X" will have a capacity in the "liveliness" speciality which will be much higher than for another farm animal of species "Y".

If the capacity in the "liveliness" speciality is for instance 90, it means that the farm animal can reach at most (without any bonuses or items) 90 of level in "liveliness". To improve one's farm animal to 100% of his/her capacity, the farmer will have to play a lot with his/her farm animal and will have to participate in fairs.

Then the bonuses and items allow your farm animal to significantly increase his/her level to exceed his/her capacity.
