    I get to collect pearls from Flowerfarm - seems average is, 10 pearls per harvest - this is going to take ages since I need 1930 pearls all together... And this is task 2 only...ehm, yet another event to simply skip?


    don't you think this is where the special short timed but little harvest come into play?  it's only 30 minutes for aloe

    Hmm, you might be right...but if so, the pearls ends up being awful expensive, seems the gardens pays 6 per harvest, maybe 10 for some (I have 4)- but if you think we're supposed to use the special seeds for that, I guess it makes sense. However I will not - they cost too much to make, and are very handy for other tasks.:-p

    gosh i have 250+ of SS aloe in stock and they pay 3 pearls per field on SS aloe ( no different amounts so far like I was seeing on the GF food truck) have not tried anything else - didn't look at what they gave on regular seeds

    I think the special aloe seeds are very good too, 3 pearls every 30 minutes, I harvested regular aloe just as the stage started and got 7 pearls for a 6 hour crop.
    Haven't quite got 250 in stock but 180 will come in very handy for this event. :)

    I will try for soap, normal elderberry,  and charred bonito tacos.

    all about how many times you harvest (and how often you interact with the game) is GGS's goal here - imo

    unfortunately i can't play even just to harvest my 4 fields every 30 minutes so will need to find a balance that works

    well like the food truck event I get different amounts from the same type of building 3 aviaries but got 7 -13- 7 and doesn't matter the level they are waiting for my 2nd harvest of orchards unfortunately both my MB and shop are on long timed items - so will have a long wait for  2nd harvest there did a couple more F5 logins and am now "seeing" pearls drop on my greenhouse

    as far as how expensive the SS are - don't know don't bother with that anymore doesn't matter have tons out of a lvl1 nursery there only SS i have ever used was the jasmine for the CCHWE - so am combining the SS wit edge crops since it is not about quantity of items planted  but # of times you harvest - going to up my co-op #'s in the WWCC  

    even though the numbers to collect x seeming # of hours needed on the food truck drops and I was very discouraged I did go through them pretty quick - lots faster than what appeared to be needed - no gold either

    so I am anticipating getting through this faster than on the surface it appears

    @JustMe (US1)
    The WWC is a worldwide event, not a co-op event.  All points are individual points. Your harvests only affect your points.   If you score is not in the top 100 or 1,000 it does not even affect the server rankings. 

    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.

    i know that Shay but the individual rewards are what I am going for - many are worthless to  me but some are not for some reason even though I plant lots of edge crops, have constant activity in the village buildings (not the workers though) because I use the horse meadow all the time my points there are the lowest I can achieve 100% in most of the other columns  - so was just saying I am trying to find a silver lining to be included in fulfilling the wedding planner event which is not what I had hoped and anticipated it would be (same as the food truck) 

    just trying to make the best of a not so great addition to the game

    Some of my members don't have the Wedding Event on the flower farm.
    One is level 43.
    Is it level specific?

    Going by the chart on Crazy Big Farm it looks like you need to be at least level 62.

    Thank you, NormaHelen.
    I will pass the information on.

    Lavender: 200*500 = 100000
    Romantic Bouquet: 120*500 = 60000
    Citrus fruits: 470*66 = 31020
    Cost: 100000+60000+31020 = 191020
    Profit: 400000-191020 = 208980

    Did a good job making Task 1 because:
    1. Donations make a reasonable profit for the level (81)
    2. Difficulty 2 instead of 3
    3. Donations are not greater than barn capacity

    Deep sea fishing, Oleg fishing, or fishing minigame?
    Black pearls are rare, only about 12 per harvest/batch on average.  The amount needed should be drastically lowered because it is started at difficulty 2 at level 81 and cannot make that many harvests in one day.  


    What?!

    They implemented code for worldwide championship points instead of a separate code for fishing.  Oysters should be found in the deep sea, not on land.

    Napkins shouldn't be a harvest crop, either, or popping out of stables, but in Big Farmlandia, they do. LOL!  You'll go mad if you try to take this game literally. :)

    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

  • Wedding planner event is not giving reward points on world championships. 
    they added the food truck event a few days in after quiet a few players had finished the event. but this is at the start. Why no event points for weeding planner event

  • If GGS does not make the adjustments needed for this wedding planner  event and for the food truck event...it will go by the wayside.... like the organic market and themed events of old....old to me because they are lame, out of date, unachievable unless you spend gold and I tell you, the rewards are not worth it.  Now we see new events but harder to accomplish and frankly not desirable anymore.    :/ 

     Ever hear the phase...been there done that    :|   You see after awhile we do not care to bust our heads for the same ole' things again.  Mainly because you don't make it worth it ...and on top of it all we may never receive the rewards,  because of bugs !

    Special seeds need to be grown on all farms now, for starters...and I have read many good ideas that would serve you well to take a look at.

    I certainly am not thrilled about this Wedding planner deco event.  I harvested my entire Flower farm and only got 217 / 1,930 Pearls.  

    I have
    4 Meadow
    4 Orchard
    4 Apiary
    1 Flower shop
    1 Mixing plant
    1 Distillery
    1 Mermaid Bay
    1 Greenhouse
     All were ready for harvest with long production items such as Aloe, Aloe vera gel,  or Honey cream.

    I can get 3 pearls every half hour from making fish tacos and I can get 2 pearls every 20 minutes from making fruit in the greenhouse but I do not feel that is going to get it done.

    Shortest time on regular crop = 2 hours
    Orchard = 6 hours
    Apiary = 2.5 hours
    Shortest production on Flower shop = 30 minutes 
    Mixing plant = 1 hour
    Shortest time on Distillery = 23 minutes
    Shortest time on Mermaid bay = 30 minutes
    Shortest time on Greenhouse = 20 minutes

    The drop rate is so low it would probably take 4 - 5 days to complete the 2nd task.

    Making the game and developing it is supposed to be a full-time job; NOT PLAYING IT!  Stop acting like everyone has the time to sit behind their computers 24/7.

    As far as the special seeds, lower production time offers lower drop rates. Basically we would be using a whole lot of resources for very little.   This event, in my opinion, is a bust.  If level 3 is this hard I can only imagine the other levels are way worse. 

    @Shay1968 (US1) , this might be the "rebalancing" that the Update/hotfix brought about. :o:/
