    Discovered a minor bug in the new Deco Valley it seems.
    Place an already built deco from my Main farm into the new deco display area, change farms went back to add more decos and the deco already there now it said it came from the drop box?!
     So put it back into my drop box and was able to build it on another farm. Put it on my Gourmet farm to test to see if it had to be rebuilt or built for the first time as it may appear.
     Success. So a way to move decos from farm to farm.
    May not work with all decos 
     Also noticed this with either type of deco just regular happiness decos & decos with both types of happiness on it. There seems no rhyme or reason of which decos placed into the new area that have already been built & placed from a certain farm change to be able to be put back into one's drop box & built on which farm one want to put it on.

    Running most recent version of chrome in HTML 
    Have not tested Flash
    @Data King (US1) If you switch to outline view in your deco valley, do the decos show the right icons?
    Hi @Data King (US1) & Wabbit, I have same problem (see a few posts above in this thread) ... is wrong in outline mode as well as normal mode & does not correct in flash. And yes all decos can be moved between farms that have decided to switch to "drop box" location.

    Why is the decoration valley on the next harvest list when there is no processing? It is unnecessary clutter. Can there not be some other way to access the valley? There was a time when we had a pull down to access the different parts of the game.

     Just put the thing on the otherwise useless map and take it out of the harvest list.

    No where in the announcement did it say they would be back right after the update. The twins only come during a CC.

    Now we get a new kind of currency, a deko-certificate/allowance/voucher or what ever the name in english would be. WHAT IS THAT USEFULL FOR????
    It is about as useful as boobs on a fish. Go figure.
    It is at least a way that we don't need to spend farm cash dollars or gold to expand the Deco Valley by getting the Deco Certificates when we do normal harvesting of our mills, bakery, flower shop and Mermaid Bay.  So for that, I do thank you, GGS!   :D I just wish that the ability to upgrade the fence would have positive effect on happiness levels of our farms (even if it is spread out evenly across our 3 farms). My opinion

    Yes, it's a very nice little stamp. (Well, it looks like a stamp to me.)
    I've used them to open 2 further spaces already.

    Have they fixed it so that the building slot coins don't get used when we put decos in the Valley?

    Yes.

    I am not building or breaking down anything in the Deco valley with my second building slot open. If you look at the popup window of the second building slot, the deco valley is shown as one of the farms on which you can use it

  • @Kimmiecat (NL1) The deco valley should no longer use your building slot, that was fixed without a downtime, shortly after the update.

    @debj (GB1) That was also fixed after the update, but decos placed from inventory before the hotifix, will go back to dropbox.

    Yes, there is a bug concerning boats, but other items can be added without problems.

    About the deco: please look it size. Those 9 level decos are usually small ones and have high happiness to area ratio and VH to area ratio that defines the quality of a deco.

    I've found quite a few decorations on Santa's Wheel that are of lower quality than those in the Deco Tower; take the Away Goal, Home Goal, and Field of Dreams for instance.  In the Deco Tower, they're level 6, with 60 Happiness.  On Santa's Wheel, they're Level 4, with 43 Happiness.  That's 1 (well, 3) examples, but there are others as well.. Sailor Ships is L9 in the Tower, L7 on the Wheel; Bumper Cars,  same thing, 9 in the Tower, 7 on the wheel (with lowered happiness). Freefall Tower, L9 in the Tower, Level 6 on the Wheel.

    Is this intended?

    I was going to try for a few of these since they're animated, and at Level 6 or 7 they're fairly "Cheap" as far as candles go (only about 50,000 candles as opposed to the 509,000 for a Level 9 Deco), but the lowered happiness made me reconsider. I'd rather pay more candles for the "Real" deco (as it appears in the Tower) than less candles for a "watered down version".

    @WascallyWabbit ..... if so, GGS should change the popup window of the second building slot : the deco valley is shown as one of the farms on which it can be used.

    @Kimmiecat (NL1) LOL that took me ages to realise where you were looking, I must be getting old :/

    You mean the pop-up that you get on login, when you have 50 tokens right? I only have 14 at the moment, could you post a screenshot of that for me please. :)

    @WascallyWabbit  I already did....if you scroll up, it is on this page.
    The deco valley is between the flowerfarm picto and the horsefarm picto.

    stef7, have your people be careful.

    TommysFarm ran into that problem with the wheel, and it took gold from him to unlock it. 260 I think.

    It was longer than 24 hours, so we know it wasn't him trying to get in early.

    Something is terribly wrong with the Santa's Workshop event.   It stole 240+240+? gold from me!
    I thought it was strange cause it happened yesterday, yet I dismissed it as having mis-clicked something by mistake.   I watched my gold total before I opened the event today, and again another 240 gold has gone missing.  :(

    Thank you for the info but it dose not help. That is like saying you can use the mill but you can not use the feed it makes. 

    If the event dose not work 100% it should not be there!

    WHY AGAIN IS THERE SOMETHING THAT DOSE NOT WORK PUT INTO THE GAME?????

    I wondered why all the snowballs. I got my snowman, so thought snowballs would be over with. No Rudolph on my farm either.

    In decoration valley, if you go into outline view, the decorations display as a pile of burgers. Very weird. Lol.
    That's just to show which storage area they came from. Main farm ones display as a house.
    Thank you. The row of burgers does look amusing. Lol
    Unfortunately that does not make it any less pointless. We could have had a small farm there :(

    I agree! It would have a point if decos put there added to our farm and village happiness but it does nothing in the game at all. We already have a deco tower to show off our decorations. Make a storage extension for our produce? Increase levels of production buildings, stables, houses, fields and orchards? Improve the lousy reward set currently in a lot of events? Fix the bugs and the lag? But no, they give us a pointless decoration storage extension that no one wants and adds absolutely nothing to the game.

    I like the new deco farm. I enjoy being able to do a theme display and look at other players as well.

    What I do not like is the bugs. They should have fixed the bugs before adding ANYTHING!!!

    We have an event (santas work shop) that you can not donate half the stuff to, and takes your gold. An other event Rudolf that  stopped a day early and we got jipped out of. Also we only got 1 snowman instead of 2. We should have gotten 2 snowmen one from Rudolf and one from the snowman snowball event. (This is the same bug as last year from snowman event no snowman but snowballs never stopped.)


    Tell me if I can not donate my boats and I only get a level 8 deco is GGS going to let me trade it in for a level 9 because the even was broken???  Or my gold back???

    Is GGS going to compensate me my missing snowman seeing I was given 1 yet finished 2 events???

    Is GGS going to give me the day 24 of the advent Rudolf that never showed up???

    As much as I like the deco display farm I would have rathered the 3 events I just spoke about worked right.
