  • FISH - the ones you catch yourself? It makes perfect sense to me they don't count. The game counts those fish by weight, NOT by number. There are two different processes going on with how the system keeps track of fish, so  IMO, I don't think it's a bug.

    Also curious to know if  anyone who has members that have harvested but not clicked on the tree yet, do they show up in the stats area of OTHER 'participating' players as having participated (with a percentage number indicated) ?

    For those of you in Stage 2 - are you able to donate items from your barn to help your Co-Op members, or do you have to harvest the items as in Stage 1?  (I realize that the items are random, but I haven't seen anyone say definitively that you can donate from barn storage) :)

    Since the santa event started, both times that I logged in I got this error message right away when going from the map to the main farm:



    (everything works fine though so no idea why im getting this)

    You donate from your inventory.  Items are totally random in almost every case (had 2 that matched up with one of mine), and were items not found in either members lists.

    Thanks for the confirmation, @KarenKay (US1) :)  That makes me feel better, knowing I didn't just spend 6 weeks maxing out my barns for nothing. :)

    @Southern (US1)  When I posted my interpretation of what they were saying and found it to be true, about the harvesting, I just took it in stride thinking GGS knew we were all smart enough to stock up ahead of time.  But boy howdy, in the second phase, you are able to help your fellow members by leaps and bounds since it isn't the same items you had to harvest, and your storage is full of all the needed items, (hopefully).  (Just remember to get restocked over the next few days to do it all again, lol)

  • Let me explain you how it's work. Unlike the mess of the last year, when you had to put cherries for others  products and so on, this time, is one to one, a product for the same product.
    @clinn (RO1) There are some different items this year too.:)

    when a member gets green (makes 100%), he immediately can start help other colleagues with their products..

    It's best when somebody finish the job, to help the next best advanced colleague, so that he will reach 100%, and will start help the next advanced colleague and so on. I repeat it's like a domino effect, and for best result, you have to try to help the next best colleague, and NOT the one with 1% or 2%.The purpose is to make as many green colleagues as possible so they, will be able then to help the one with lower percent, when your coop will have enough people who finished they list.


    Thanks for the great tip, @clinn (RO1)
    That's a very logical and effective approach but in the excitement I did not think of it, instinct seems to say "go to rescue the weakest first".
    Will definitely implement your suggestion   :)

    Not that it's important to me, but do you still get the Co-Op price for "donated" items?

    With my luck I'll have to donate all my Soap & Honey Creams, which takes me about 3 weeks to restock.. 6,500 Soaps @ 60 soaps an hour takes forever. :)

    Guys.....Reason for not being able to donate just as of yet, is that we have 3 phases in this.
    Day 1 is havesting, day 2 and 3 (if I am not mistaken), is donating, day 4 helping others out.

    But ofcourse that doesnt explain the missing start button.

    @Southern (US1)  Yes  :)

    @clinn (RO1)  I instructed my coop the exact same way, then threw it out the door.  Since the items are random, the first one who finished didn't have most of the items on the next one's list.  So rather than have the momentum stalled, I had her go on to the next and next.  She was able to fill enough on two others lists to enable them to complete the minuscule amounts left on their own, so 1 became 3, who started at the top, but followed the same protocol.  If they didn't have what was needed, moved on down the line.  Tonight we are 97% finished, and will wrap up in the morning.

    On one of your statements, I became a bit confused, you stated, "Let me explain you how it's work. Unlike the mess of the last year, when you had to put cherries for others  products and so on, this time, is one to one, a product for the same product."  So are you saying that the item needed on the receivers list is the exact same item that the donors need to give?  This isn't what we have.  I had all members send me their lists the minute the event started.  Last year it was by the product number.  Whatever was in say your 2nd slot on the list, would be the item you would need to donate if the other members 2nd slot item needed filled.  This year, it's been almost completely random, with the item shown as needed, not being found on either member's list.  So it's not on the original member or the donating member.  It does seem that everyone who had cherries needing filled, now need apples donated, and vice versa, figuring out to be that 5th slot which was a problem last year as well. I actually like this much better than last year's as well because my storage was full of all the random items so it was easy to donate and help everyone else.

    @Sharky52Gamer (AU1) , you need to "Send Oleg Fishing" using either the boat, or his built-in fishing menu. Fishing manually does not work.

    ok now I am sending Oleg to do the fishing so it counts

    but every time I click on the boat to see how much time is left so I can re-send him again

    the time counter rests back  to an hour

    this is frustrating

    Thanks once again. :)  Not really that important to me, but I know it is to several of my Co-Op members.  Personally, I hope the items I'll have to "Help" my other members with are stuff I can just buy, that way I keep my barns full, instead of stuff I might have to make (like bakery items or Flower Shop items). 

    Time will tell!  Should be in Stage 2 in the next couple hours. :)

    This bug has been there from the start, I reported it, but obviously nothing happens from GG bug and beatle analyst. Good thing is it's just "client" connection issue. Server time ticks down. As soon as you reload your game from server the time updates. In any case the boat jumps in the moment it is ready anyway. The easiest way around for me is to look at the time when I log in the game and notice when the next boat will be available. But since I don't pay much attention anyway there might be more bugs involved.

    EDIT: Just noticed @Southern (US1) trick with gold. That's probably even better then mine. :) Will start using it. :)

    There is no "Day 4" - you can help others as soon as you finish your own list. There's 3 STAGES - Stage 1 is doing your own list (by harvesting), Stage 2 (which can be done anytime after finishing your OWN list) is helping other Co-Op members, and Stage 3 is "Once you've finished EVERYONE'S list, you can start working on BONUS quests" (3rd tab on the bottom right of the Wish List menu, looks like a little crown). :)

    The catch is you have only 4 days in which to DO all this for each "Chapter" (Chapters 1-5) at the top of the Wish List.
    Half right, but it was taken out of my meneroy very fast :)

    Yeah, it's handy.  If it's somewhere around 20 gold, I know I can get in Two 15-minute training sessions (for XP) before the next boat. If it's around 40 gold, I know I can train for an hour. It's better than just letting Oleg sit on his thumbs. :)

    One thing I really dislike on long term basis is this GG tendency to play secrets. Instead of giving us more info they try to hide even the info we normally have. This time it is hard work rewards where you can only see the next one instead of seeing the whole range of rewards available ahead. So at first it looked like we only have one HW reward available.

    Happness points required connected to this also make little sense as they don't correspond to happines of the deco or added hapiness so far nor to any other revealed info I could find on event interface. Any idea? Mods?

    They're also different and random for each player.

    Mine:
    1) 10 Lime Seeds
    2) 850 Horseshoes
    3) 50 "Teamwork"
    4) 30 Super Fertilizer
    5) 30 Premium Duck Feed
    6) 200 Greenhouse Humus

    That's it so far.

    Is there a timer that shows precisely how many days/hours are left to fill each individual chapter?
    I can only find a timer for the whole event. 

    If there isn't one this would be very useful to add.
    Am I correct in thinking the chapter ending times (UK time) are 14th December 11pm, 18th December 11pm, 22nd December 11pm, 26th December 11pm? or am I a day out?

    If there is, Jeb, we haven't found it yet.  It's probably right next to the "Start" button. ;)

    So most likely, No, there's no timer that we can see for each individual chapter, just the entire event. 
    Am I still the only one who found "start" button? :)

    I had the same idea that there should be separate counter for chapters.
    And yes, your days/time seem right to me.
    I will go by 17, 13, 9 and 5 days on event counter to make it easy.
