    can anyone explain me what is obon festival
    and how we find lanterns

     You can find all about the Obon Festival here:  https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/158402/update-august-3rd-happy-hour-and-lantern-festival/p1?new=1

    You will obtain lanterns by normal farming on your regular farms (they'll drop from harvesting your fields, gardens and meadows). The more you farm, the more lanterns you will collect. The more lanterns you collect, the bigger/nicer your end-reward will be.

    The Obon Festival decoration offers NO village happiness?   What's the point?  Another deco we will have to store or tear down to have room for decos with village happiness.  We NEED decos with village happiness. Also it says "Help me gather as many lanterns as possible and earn great rewards for it!"  I see just one reward, the deco, is there more to the event?  Am I missing something?

    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.

    What is important not the main reward, but the side reward, lucky coins. With the good strategy, one can trade some lucky coins to Omar for VHP deco, although all of them belong to Asia event

    Happy Hour is just another spam popup that comes up when I first load the game causing massive lag.

    What's up GGS? Not of this World event just started this this morning so how could we lose a day already when it hasn't even been 24 hours? It was 6 days this morning & now it's 5 days. No wonder players are unable to finish events. Sorry but these events are really starting to looked fixed.

    it always does that. Once it falls to 5 days & 23 hours, it just says "5 days".

    Right now there's 140 hours left. That's 5 Days & 20 hours.

  • Guys really, consider making some extra hours during the night because not everyone is playing during the day.. This is not fair at all..


  • Seriously it is highly unfair to not set the happy hours during the night. Why is it so hard to make it 7-10, 12-15, 18-21, 24(midnight)-5 for example?? A lot of people plays during the night and you know it, why to discriminate these? Everyone shall have equal chances to get the bonuses.

    But if you get 7 days to complete & it starts with 6 days - then 24 hours still has to past before it goes to 5 days. Since it just started this morning 24 hours hasn't passed yet so it shouldn't change to 5 days until tomorrow morning.

    We never get 7 full days for these events. It's usually like 157 hours (6 days, 13 hours) or so.

    which means night players have more time than day players on majority of events so why are they complaining about this daily bonus being unfair? They have 1 event that they have a disadvantage while day players have a disadvantage on all the others since night players start all other events & end with them so technically they get more time while day players get less - give it a break.

    The Obon festival deco.....it has no village happiness.  I can't speak for other players, but I no longer use any decos that do not have VHP.  Did GGS mean to leave out VHP?  We had it during golden week, when building a leprechaun deco.

    I am surprised the Obon festival decoration does not include village happiness

    Very nice deco, but without VHP mine is going to Greta for disassembling



  • The weekend bonus booster is in working this morning even after refreshing and logging out and logging back in.  No boost to snow dollars and no increase to field production.  No counter at the top of the page like for the happy hour during the week.

    You have to activate the booster that you want, you can choose one of the three. Just click the checkered flag underneath your chosen booster.

    Thanks for posting, grrr.  I finally got one of the boosters going.  However,  didn't realize only one booster can be activated at a time.  Unfortunately, I activated one that was less valuable to me. :(

    Same here @artful (US1) 

    I thought we can choose boosters of our choice on three different times so I was planing on using the viking farm one, so I choose the field one for the morning. Was sad to see when it shows the booster's for the whole weekend :disappointed:

    Oh well @artful (US1) , next time I'll be the one that doesn't see what you're supposed to do I'm sure.
    Sometimes that can be a good thing, won the booster in the WWC and thought it was just for upgrading, imagine my surprise when fields and production started racing :o

    The higher value of happiness for the deco, the more deco parts I can get from it when Greta comes to town...Those parts I plan to use to upgrade those decos with Village Happiness that are on my farms.
