    I am waiting to see how GGS react to our reactions. They may yet adjust some things back in our favor.

    Would GG consider reverting the labs back to their original purpose but needing the catalysts (which can not be bought, only earned) to produce ?

    We will let you know when we know. For now we must be patient until we hear back from the Team.

    I'm already running out of fruit sugar!! 
    So how many orchards do I need to make the jam?



    You get it from orchards.  I barely get an adequate amount.  I thought (based on the announcement) that it would drop all orchards, but it only drops from cherries or apples.  I have never seen it drop from peaches, almonds, citrus or olives.   If it did drop from those, it would be more than plentiful

    I think we can get it from Greenhouse too.

    That's an excellent idea to me. It will be so nice if it was like that. :smiley:

  • maybe they want to normalize game. now, players  going reduce enourmous amounts of stabels, orchads and etc to be able to keep farm running.  then I starded playing it was a norm to keep happines as high as possible, but with lets say free premium feed and fertilizers you kinda dont need now any decorations only money making stables and etc. so for new players or players who is not willing to buy gold its is hard to compete with gamers having 20-30 cowsheds or smth 

    I feel update is ok. Yes, I too invested in my labarabory some coins, but still not mad.  for me its not going to change anything, maybe level will not rise up so fast after time. but not going to loose money without premium feed, game gives oportunities to make money from other things and  keep money growing. 
  • I could be wrong, I hope not, I sent my boat out this morning & for the 1st time since the update it didn't need any Jam products, has GGS given us a honeymoon period until we get a chance to do a few upgrades, level 3 to 4 was 8 hours, the next few will be a lot longer.
    It would be a sign of good faith on their part 
    Mine wants jam this morning. Yesterday it wanted THREE lots of jam. I haven't upgraded my factory that far yet so I didn't bother with the boat yesterday. I usually try for the 100% but not always the bonuses as I tend to hang on to the products I'm collecting to fulfil contracts and I'm not that into the horse racing so I can do without the horseshoes. That's how I play. I quite like the event farms so I can buy all the greenhouse seeds I need. I don't need them putting into the lab and I prefered being able to make special feed. What I don't get is why they have to rush everything so much. Bringing the jam in before most of us had even built the factory. Asking for three lots of jam on the second or third day. Well I do know - you can do it easy if you use gold.

    The update was made before the weekend. They've only just got back to the office about four hours ago.

    From my experience, I don't think the drop rate of fruit sugar is 100%. Does someone recorded their drop rate of fruit sugar in apples or cherry orchard?

    I believe,more orchads you have, more sugar you get... just checked, geting 30 sugar from every apple orchad, have 17 of them

    While you decide if these changes are so great maybe swap some rewards like ugly skins and sunflower seeds 
    and many others that are stuck in our inventories.. but that may be asking to much.. Huh ?
    Labs sitting doing nothing now as you might have heard by now .Sure would like some feedbacks sooner then later.

    I too got the same number of sugar from apples.

    I mean that we are going to get fruit sugar when harvesting orchards, but not every harvest. I know it is 30 sugar per apple and I don't know how much on cherry normally, but 10 sugar when I use speed fertilizer. So how frequently do they drop? 
  • Would GG consider reverting the labs back to their original purpose but needing the catalysts (which can not be bought, only earned) to produce ?
    I am thinking we will start seeing gold deals for catalysts soon - which makes me think this lab change is just another way for ggs to get gold  :(

    That will be so sad for newcomers I think.

  • Nurseries will still be a viable option to produce the special seeds.  With the Lab update, you now have another option to make those special seeds. :)

    And like I said before these things take time.  We have to give the Team time to read our reports, analyze the situation, and then communicate back to us.  So let's all be patient.  Thanks. :)
     I wonder how long it takes them to thing up changes, implement, and balance test.

    Right now catalysts are part of the CC/ML rewards as well as doing the first mission of the day and activating a farm machine.
