    The new decors look nice, but they are enormous. 7x7 and 7x6 decorations with happiness up to 135. 5x5 with 90 happiness is pretty cool. I wonder if there are gold decorations and how that will work with the farm going away after 30 days. Gonna be weird to pay for a gold decoration and have it taken away after a few weeks. Cant wait for the event to start on US1 server so all the speculation can be gone with.

    You can't yet

    From the Official Announcement
    Reminder: Please keep in mind that events will not always start right after the respective update took place. Sometimes it can take some days before you can see all new additions for the first time. This is perfectly normal and not a bug!

    We want to be sure everything works properly :) If we start the event, it will not be on the big servers first, just in case we still find bugs and problems. When we're at least sure everything will work, the event will be started on all servers.

    This may indeed take some time, maybe even a day, but I think it shouldn't take longer than that.

    I suppose the ones with gold background are gold decorations and the ones without are not. At least that's how it works for other decorations...

    Go to the deco tower as stated in other posts here.

    oh i see ty,
    the value of that 135 happiness deco is not highest though, in 5x5 comparison its only about 69 happiness
    the best deco there seems to be +90 sand palace, second by sand fortress with value of 85 in 5x5 comparison, and third by sand castle with value of 78 in 5x5 comparison

    i dont think so, the first 3 deco with gold background are chapter prizes, and the 4 other with no gold background are the ones we will get with exchanging shells i think. so all of them will be available for all players (as long as they can finish the event and all chapters ofc)

    it would behoove them to at least give a "ok, maybe within 3 hours, maybe tomorrow" type of heads up here somehow. A lot of people are in a dead zone holding pattern over this. No clue how many certs, cash or upgrade anything can or will happen, so we're all deadlocked. Not cool.

    As Griffith says the golden ones are chapter end decos.

    We have no need to place huge island decor to our usual farms. And at the island we'll have no choice and no old decorations to compare with )

    And I'm watching for sandcastles ))) Nice happiness )))

    Actually we are able to have these decos on our old farms according to one of the teasers. :)

    (Our friend Benny likes these shells a lot and offers you to trade them for different goods. As soon as he shows up near your farms with his specifically redesigned truck, you can exchange shells for special new seeds for future use in the greenhouse, as well as all island farm decorations, that you would not be able to use on your regular farms if it were not for this exchange!)

    From the looks of it - the world server WWW1 already has the Island working - the decos conversations above, right? May we also know when the us1 server gets working !! The airport is unlocked, but the pop-up mssg still states "the event is not available" :(

    when ? aprox. time would be good - coding is a very precise trade, giving more accurate timing, would be great. So we can play the game - aka spend money, do upgrades etc etc in meantime.....pls

    Also noticed that when going to the farms to water the co-op tree it doesn't go right to tree, I have to scroll to get to the tree. Anyone else notice this?

    MoonionsRule, I'm on www1 server and we don't have the island yet, no one has it. As for the deco conversations everyone can see them on the 13th floor of deco tower :)

    I know, that we are able to buy these decos for main farms, but as I said it's not necessary (at least on my farm it will
    reduce the happiness - bad deal).
    And as I already know we'll need shells and new seeds for future upgrades )

    It's not available on Russian server ;) But as Latten said - there are SMALL servers, and farmers gave some spoilers on our forum ))

    Hmm, the game is not slowing down - that's one good news, the trees are good for me.
    However we do got one glitch, we have noticed and it started this morning , so must have happened after the update. All the Project names are "messed-up", they inherited from the task BOOK, as far as I remember...

    here is a screen shot of "new, unfortunate Projects names"

    from the looks of it, our pigs will be laying eggs now, hahahahahahaaa... well always wanted to make the piggies more useful ;)

    I've been singing the "If you like Pina Coladas" song in anticipation of the island for three days and it still isn't here. :(

    Okay, I know this has happened multiple times with GGS updates, but I wonder: What's the point of having a deadline to release something when you can freely and constantly push things back? If that's the case, why not put yourself on a more realistic schedule and just announce that you'll release it (without bugs or lags or whatever) next week, and give yourself time to actually develop the event without constantly failing to meet deadlines?

    I can post a link to Russian Forum, where you can see & read (after using google translate) about the Island a bit, there is a few screenshots there too, so you can look at the Island, produce & animals.

    Well, the lady with the car full of money has come. My guess is so you have a chance to get the extra cash to work the island tomorrow... Just my thought. Not that the gold to money deal is that great, but if someone is deperate for some cash for the island I guess it works.

    Seeing it beginning on smaller servers gives hope that it's not far from ready to open on the bigger ones as well I think! ^-^
    If no big bugs suddenly appear that is ;o
    Thanks for linking the thread and screenshot, it looks super beautiful and inviting, can't wait!~
