Seashells

Do our seashells expire at the end of the 30 day Island thing or can we 'bank' them???

Also - the ? button on the airport ring says that we will get seeds in exchange for seashells but as far as I can see we're only being offered decor.

    The seeds are locked for now. They are part of next upgrade (together with the greenhouse).

    No idea about the seashells. I would like no know it too.

    The seeds are not being offered yet. That is because the greenhouse at the south of the farm has not been implemented yet. Once that is implemented you will be able to buy seeds from Benny.

    I suppose we get to keep the shells, but I am not entirely sure.

    The seashells had better be permanent - you can see them in your Inventory Equipment. If they're not permanent then what is the point of investing all the farm dollars in order to earn them?

    Thank you for asking the same question that came to my mind. Will the remaining (and there will be remaining seashells - no doubt) collected seashells be carried over to the next event?

    It's all a mystery - just like the grape-eating lemurs. Poor wee mites will starve because there's no vineyard as far as I can see...

    We will keep all seashells. Everything else...gone after 30, seashells stay. That's for sure ;)

    If I remember correctly, they will be turned into shells at the end. So shells probably stay.

    At the airport nothing is said.

    In your inventory at your main-farm or in the exchange-menu of Benny Buddler and his truck.

    If you sell your field products or bar products on the island you will get shells for it. And for finishing some of the tasks, you will get shells too.

    So do we get to keep seashells in the end or what? Whats the point of all this? Too much money going in and nothing coming out of it.

    Yes, you keep the shells at the end. The one update said, at the end, everything is sold off and turned into shells, then the event is done. Those seeds you can buy with the shells had better produce a MASSIVE profit, or the entire island is a huge waste of money and time.

    It reminds me of selling the bakery goods for less money than you'd make selling the items without turning them into goodies. Granted, they did change that now! But it is one of those, you do this and you'll lose tons of money but it's disguised as a good thing.

    This island needs an update already. I'm already pushing over half a million spent.... What do I have? About 4,000 shells and a ton of orange fizz that cost a fortune to make in the first place. I have high happiness and it still costs me about 11,000 to make one batch of drinks. Needs some serious adjusting...

    Yes, they are especially for me. If they were alcoholic I would not bother making them XD
