For weeks all we saw in the "newspaper" was that the food truck was coming, Why was it skipped over for the goldfish rescue? In the podcast they spoke of it and I was really looking foward to it. When will it come around please?

    I don't think it was "skipped over," just not ready to be launched.  They always announce things way ahead of actual release.  I personally am hoping they will take all the time they need to ensure it will be bug free and not mess up other components of the game.

    I totally agree!  We have enough bugs! (not including the cute little blue ones we chase after). :*:):o:D

    Why is the development team not using the same "language" as in other missions when describing where items are obtained?

    "Collect cardboard cups from production facilities" sounds similar to mill, silo,composter, lab and bakery - however i did not "see" any cardboard cups there

    I did "see" cups from fields and ducks and goats not donkeys or orchards or any of the above production buildings

    I mean come on it is "copy and paste" from other event instructions - new and confusing wording is not needed

    I do get paper cups from the mill, composter, silo, bakery and donkeys as well as fields (not sure about the orchards), not from the lab though, even when making premium goat feed.

    I had full mill, silo, bakery composter - nothing              donkeys - nothing   orchards - nothing  

    there is no reason to change the usual wording if all are included to not say "when harvesting and producing on your GF"  - I am sure I will be beyond this stage before my next full mill, bakery, silo or composter are ready again so won't be able to tell if it is a display issue

    At some point we will be able to select levels like the other similar events?

    Carrots drop from most things on gourmet farm, just very few of them. I think the balancer is a bit wobbly on this one, seeing as the highest levels will need up to 16 times as many,  if the normal increase in each level that you get in these events is applied . Early days yet , corrections could arrive .

    I am guessing - mine auto-started on level 3 (didn't have to hunt for the truck) so would appear there are other levels

    wasn't checking if the donations also added farm cash - if not one impressively expensive deco!  no VH either - which is both good and bad - depends on your need 
  • Shay1968 (US1)Shay1968 (US1) Posts: 1,324
    When you first get a deco event on your farm it will start at level 3 and drops from first task will drop automatically. This will happen until you have unlocked the ability to choose a level. Maybe this is to help players that have never done deco events in case they do not click on the event right away.

    Breakdown on the Lab
    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days
    25,264.27 (days) ÷ 365 (days in a year) = 69.22 years to fully upgrade the Lab
    That's if you use the daily earnings to upgrade the Lab ONLY, no spending on other upgrades, islands, boosters, or anything else.

    Don't want to be in a Co-op.  Can't do spruce.  I will just ignore these new events from now on.
    It is a shame as I enjoyed the novelty of it.

    Was looking forward to this new event. Then I find out 3/4 the way thru I need spruce. Not in a Co-op so I'm out. It would be nice to know in advance what farms /co-op are required for these events. 
    You're welcome to join us for the duration.  No donations or participation in events is required.  Link to description is in my signature.

    While I appreciate new events and its good to have something new and interesting to do here, the thing that stands out to me is the average rewards. A lot of these rewards are not even worth the effort.

    Another thing, why does the final event reward always have to be a decoration?? High level players already have A LOT of decorations scattered across their farms so there's little motivation to play this event. Why can't it be like other events where you are offered a few rewards to choose from at the end, for example seaweed, mystery boxes, an appearance perhaps??
    I, like others, do need decos, even if to feed to Greta.  But I agree with you wholeheartedly that a choice would be very welcome.  It would be nice to complete appearance themes, for example, or be able to choose even gold or deco parts (skipping the middle man).
