  • my gifts are popping up nicely and the pranks are displayed as a purple fog but then again, sometimes there no sign or colour at all to say somebody gifted me.

    Using the Turbo Harvester as I do, it's pretty much impossible to spot a pranked building, as it harvests every building on the farm simultaneously.

    Even though you've harvested a pranked building though, you can still find the leprechaun. I just have to check all 3 farms for him, since I have absolutely NO idea what farm the pranked building was on.. So every 5-6 hours I just start looking for him. He turns up eventually. :)

    In the previous version of this event, it would let me find the leprechaun if I harvested the pranked building my accident. But the leprechaun disappeared when I harvested the pranked buildings twice and I was not available to find the leprechaun until they returned and pranked another building. I don't use the turbo harvester but it is still difficult to spot the prank sometimes. I have been getting better at spotting it, but I imagine that this would be difficult for many players to spot.

    Hmm.. They may have changed it in the changeover to HTML.. I'll have to test it next time I get a pranked building that I can see.. Which probably won't be until tomorrow morning.

    If that's the case, that really sucks. Means I'll only be able to find the little sucker once a day, after I wake up from 5+ hours of sleep.. cuz I'll NEVER see a pranked building before I harvest it with the Turbo Harvester.

  • or maybe make a little exclamation mar appear above the pranked building, something ggs, you think of so many ways to get us to spend gold, can't you think of at least 1 useful idea?

    For reference, with animations off, this is what my Pranked building looks like.

    Can you spot which building is pranked?


    If you know it's there, and you HUNT for it, sure, maybe you can tell the composter is pranked.  But just in normal gameplay? I'd click the Turbo Harvester button without even a 2nd thought (course, the composter isn't ready yet, but if it were, and if I hadn't JUST logged in after 6+ hours of sleep, I knew it was time to look for a pranked building.)

    We definitely need a better visual indicator of a pranked building.

    Or better yet, just get rid of the pranked building altogether and just have the leprechaun spawn every 5 hours like Tanuki does, with the arrow (on the event in the parking lot) just taking you to the farm the leprechaun is on.

    @Southern (US1)  did you try using Outline mode? Made it a little easier to see for me. Unfortunately I didn't take a screen shot, though.

    Here's Outline Mode:


    That one's completely IMPOSSIBLE to see.

    Now, if I turn on animations it's a little easier:


    A little easier, because the building icon turns into this weird neon green thing.. But I don't play with animations on, it's too distracting to me.

    And yes, it's still pranked. :)

    @JustMe (US1)  You'll find it easier to find the pranked building on your farm by having the animations turned on and the Outline mode activated. The pranked building will appear as a green blob on your farm. This was pointed out by my friend Southern on another thread.  @Southern (US1)  Thanks, pal! animated-thumbs-smiley-image-0004

    I had the problem of not seeing any "mist" this morning but when I checked the Parking Lot the arrow was green and sure enough I found a little green man. Also be aware that you should check this before harvesting anything.

    I just logged in, went to the event buiilding, followed the green arrow to the FF, and nada, zip, nothing.  No pranked building and no leprechaun to be found.  This is with going to outline view, etc.

    If you've got a green arrow, you've got a pranked building.  It's just hard to see. VERY hard to see.

    Best way is to turn on animations, turn on Outline View, and look for a building that looks like a neon green blob (as in my screenshot above).

    If I have a green arrow, it doesn't really matter what building it is... I start looking for the leprechaun. Due to the inability to see the fog, I always open event first now to see if I am pranked and go to that farm and hunt him out!

    Right, only there is nothing there, no green blob, nothing.

    I have only gotten the leprechaun once each day and this morning, nothing at all.  I think he skipped town.

    I'm only getting leprechaun once a day as well.  Checking the event vendor before doing anything is the key. It doesn't matter what bldg is pranked, the prank will be nullified and replaced w/ a treat! Finding the leprechaun is the key.

  •    Since the St. Patrick Day event started I have not been able to access the flower farm.  I believe it is due to the leprechaun being on that farm.  When I try to access that farm it loads partially and then locks up and won't let me go back to any other farms.  I can't even logout, I have to close the window and reopen it. I believe it is due to the leprechaun because when I click on the show me button, it starts to load the flower farm and locks up about half way thru the loading process. Every once in while it will tell me it is not responding due to a long running script, but I can't get past it.  Is anyone else having this issue?
    @EggFarmerPhil (US1) Are you still having this problem & are your other farms ok when they have a prank on them?

  • I'm new to the game and have a hart time to play, don't understand most of the events and cannot find any help. Are there any posts explain these events?

    As for St. Patrick event.... Did anybody get lucky hats? How do you get them? My stats are still showing 0 even though my golden clover shows at 31 happiness.

    Thanks for any info.
