    Had 51 in my inventory when I logged on this morning.  Stayed at 51 until our coop won 9 more. This put me at 60. Logged out, logged back on -- still 60.

    A half hour later, the total goes back to 51 as I am playing. What happened, do you suppose, and has this happened to anyone else?
    @[email protected]"artful (US1)"  I've not heard any reports of construction coins lost, only misspent, artful.  B)
    I am getting tired of this pop-up every time I login though.  :(

    I know, right? And you can't spend 9 coins, can you? Pop-up confirmed 51 coins this morning. Pop-up confirmed 60 after we won 9 (and I logged back in). Got bumped off, and suddenly it's back to 51. Good grief!

    Yeah, I got this pop-up every time I login and 'warn' if I MUST use one-time construction slot to obtain another token. Wonder if the cap for it would be removed and/or use leftover tokens to skip construction process.

    Hey @artful (US1) There's a bug that lets you collect construction tokens one more time after you've reached the max amount but it is corrected with a relog. Once you've reached the limit you can't store anymore tokens until you use the 2nd building slot.

    Okay, that would make sense as to what happened. So, I guess my coop can stop playing the CC now, huh? :)

    Thanks, CF!

    Since you have them, why don't you just use them? I wouldn't let them go to waste. Spend them on a cherry/apple orchard or fences/gates. You still have stuff to upgrade :)

    Also... what happened to your farms? Are you redecorating or something? That's a lot of empty space (just curious).

    1-I don't have the overage in coins anymore. GGS giveth, and GGS taketh away. I didn't want to start a build until Steve showed up. I have two very long architect-needed builds which I would like to do concurrently, so waiting for Steve I am. (And hope I don't plop down a deco by mistake!)

    2-As for the empty space, I need workers to do anything more, and I'm trying to see how few houses I can get by with. Several players have mentioned that they wish they hadn't filled up their farms with so many houses at first. (Again, Steve is needed for upgrades.) Plus, I don't want to start other upgrades in the event he shows up. Once he's left, I start those kinds of projects.

    While I'm waiting for Steve, money is accumulating, so I buy land. This works out well or me -- when I need land, I'll already have it. And it gives me space to move things around or add decos and enjoy low production costs as long as I can.  I'm in no rush to fill up the space just because I have it. :)

    I just received this great offer to buy 50 construction tokens for 9,000 gold !

    That's just enough to buy an extra one time only construction slot.

    Or maybe I'll just hit the skip with gold button for 1,466 gold and start another building construction. Hmmm, what to do ?

    It just shows one of two things.........a lack of intelligence on GGS part to do simple calculations or a lack of respect towards its customers because they assume we are too dumb to figure out there's no value in this offer....which is it?

    1 gold skips 30 seconds of construction, but it costs 9000 gold for 50 tokens.  It would only break even if both your constructions are 75 hours long.

    the tokens are to upgrade 2 buildings at the same time + with Steve been around someone will buy them it maybe cheaper with these long upgrades 

  • Now that my building slot is unlocked I need to know how it works.

    Just upgrade something big 
  • artful (US1)artful (US1) Posts: 6,139US1
    I wait until Steve is here. Then I start a long Steve upgrade with it, and use the regular slot for another long upgrade, if I have one, or a shorter one. The main thing is not to place a deco as that also uses the coins up.

  • Be warned!! You all work hard to get the extra construction slot 50 tokens to open it. Once the 50 tokens has been accumulated the extra construction slot is used NO MATTER WHAT THE PLAYER SELECTS!!! I earned the extra construction slot and I wanted to use it on a 10-12 hour construction build. I had a 12 second decoration I wanted to put on one of my farms, and I selected the normal main construction slot for that build to save my extra construction slot. The game automatically used the extra construction slot for this 12 second build. I was pissed and sent a message to GGS. They don't care!! They point to some forum post that many of us missed, which says the extra construction slot will be used IMMEDIATELY after it is open with enough tokens. You can get tricked because you have two selection "buttons" on the farm, which gives the illusion you can select the construction slot you want to use yourself. You can't. GGS refused to reinstate my extra construction slot when I explained what happened. To me this is a BIG RIP OFF!! I hope this helps other avoid the same fate. GGS - You really made a big error when you developed that extra construction slot in this manner!! 
  • Cathy, you can go back to reading your warranty and insurance policies fine print now. For the rest of us normal players who don't read every fine print, my comments still stand!!

    It wasn't fine print.  If you don't read anything else on this forum, read the announcements.  It's your own fault you didn't know how it works.

    I've learnt over the years of play that its essential to visit the forum to stay in touch with whats happening in the game. 

    I think the forum should be used to seek help and exchange ideas but in this game it also serves in lieu of any sort of game manual and where game changes/new additions are announced.

    A bit on the snarky side. I come to the forum 1 to 2 times a day to see what is happening, and I sometimes miss something, it happens, no need to be so mean spirited towards FarmerGray.

    The extra hoops we have to jump through to use the additional construction slot are definitely a PITA , but any extra construction slot is a major plus  as far as I am concerned .
