    Well it might not start this week. The update will make it possible for it to start. We still don't know when the event will start
    Reminder: Please keep in mind that events will not always start right after the respective update took place. Sometimes it can take some days before you can see all new additions for the first time. This is perfectly normal and not a bug!

    Great news ))

    Will the whole event (or maybe it's chapters) count in our achievements?

    Will we have to rebuild everything on the island? The houses that we build? the buildings?
  • edited 29.07.2014
    Yes Rie, I believe we will. This sounds a lot like some of the events on Empire, where every time those events come around, you have to start from the beginning. So I won't be surprised if you have to rebuild everything every time the event comes around. But that's okay, its another challenge, and I know I love challenges. ;)

    Really looking forwards to this GGS, I hope it is going to be as Super Awesome as it sounds!

    So to recap......

    I have to use certificates (not got enough of these as it is) to unlock the airport......

    Then visit the bank to exchange cash (no it's not +15%, it's the exchange rate) to pay for buildings....(taking up my already overloaded building slot)

    All of which vanishes after 30 days!

    I get some reward of unknown value and possibly spend more to get shells to exchange for deco's and seeds, again of unknown value......

    Er think I'll pass on this, far too complex for what is basically a long term "event"......at least until I have made some headway on the other farms and I get some feedback from others as to the value!

    Thanks Superspacegirl..I was wondering because if there are gold houses those wouldn't be a good idea to build.

    I'm really excited about this! It sounds like it will add an extra level of complexity & interest to the game, and I for one am looking forward to the challenge. Just hope I have enough certificates.

    Since the island may have houses, production buildings and deco's, I understand that so if we setup the island in a strategic good way, the Island farm only will need some economic help from our normal farm in the beginning, until it's build up so the Island farm after some time itself can pay for more buildings, deco's and upgrades.
    - Is that correct understanded?

    Only partially. You will probably want to change $ to Island-$ on a regular basis to not get into problems on the island, since you won't get Island-$ from the production alone. Instead, you'll get shells which you can use on the main farm's shell trader, to buy things for your regular farms :)

    Im really looking forward to this, i think it sounds great.
    I have just one question - does it start again after 30 days or is this a one off stand alone 30 day event? Im going on holiday for 2 weeks soon so i am really disappointed that i wont be able to finish the event. (but very glad you get credited everything back again!) I would really like the chance to give it another go!

    It shouldn't be that many :) If I remember correctly, doing a handfull of missions at most should net you all the certificates you need.

    No guarantees though, balancing might still change.

    Which can be anywhere from about 25 up to about 600 pieces, maybe even a little more?
    There's a big difference in how many certificates you win a mission, the key factors here is the type of mission, whitch placement or get in the mission and what level your earthbreaker has.

    Well - I do not worry that much - and will not ask any questions. Let the surprise indeed surprise me - do not need to know everything in advance! I have a stack of dollars and certificates ready and waiting.... and will see.

    I have just one question: will we be able to build simultaneously on one regular farm and temporary farm?

    the event is 30 days long, and things must be built quickly.. does this put our regular farms on hold for 30 days?
    for low-level players (the event is available from level 30, if I understood correctly) this rule of one-building-at-the-time would be a total disaster...

    Mandatory? No. You do them only for the extra rewards.

    if really so, then it means that the players would be building island farm throughout the month and at the end they 'd again start it from beginning, when would they time to build the mainland farms?

    it can't be happening unless all of the construction times are adjusted, currently building durations are balanced b/w three farms

    i guess there would be a separate building slot, but still we can not trust our devs blindly, lets see what they have planned for us!!! :huh:

    If you can manage 3 farms at the same time, then why not 4? - it's just another challenge added to the game!
