    If we keep the shells, does that mean we can save up on multiple 30 day runs to get the top deco?

    Ok, first I like it so far. Anything different to figure out is fun.

    Several people asked what seashells are for. I'd like to add to that. What are they for????

    Trying to "earn" money faster than waiting the two hours, I tried selling some orange fizz. But I think that money went into my main farm funds, not the island. Is that correct? And WHY? Is there no way for the island to earn island bucks on top of what you can transfer?


    Meanwhile, has anyone figured out if it's possible to do this island farm to completion without spending gold?
    Cause if not, I may just let it go. (I'll try it myself once first, but nice to know not to expect anything.)

    Shells will eventually be used to buy the special seeds for the greenhouse. No the decos aren't really worth it, but look cool.

    The only other way to earn island dollars is to click on the worker bubbles/presents. "Selling" the orange fizz is a waste, do NOT make them unless you have a task for them. Costs way to much to just do it. No return on investment except the completeing of the tasks.

    It is only day 1. Nobody has figured out if you can complete the island without using gold. Nobody knows what tasks are ahead yet. My guess is yes, but it will require MANY hours of playing at LOTS of farm dollars, but you should be able to complete it without gold.

    Gold is seemingly why the made this update. Nobody has millions of farm dollars sitting around ready to be exchanged for something that gets wiped away in 30 days. So to the gold they go, if they can afford it.

    Guys am I the only one who isn't exactly thrilled about how the island farm works? After so much anticipation I was a bit disappointed. Here are my issues.
    1-The 2hr. waiting period in order to transfer funds.
    2-The fact that I can only use decorations that I get in my drop box, on the island farm! Unlike with the other farms. Instead I have to buy it for the other farms.
    3-I don't like the idea of loosing money left in my account, when the island farm up and leaves.
    4-And this one applies to all farms. I should be able to do constructions, upgrades and demolitions simultaneously. After all, every farm has its own workforce. What, is there only one set of tools that everyone has to take turns to borrow?
    I really hope they rectify this stuff.

    I completely agree...especially with only being able to build/demolish/upgrade one thing at a time. Some of my upgrades now are taking over 20 hours. Seriously?

    Awwww now this blows. I finally figured out, upgrading the exchange building lets you move more money at a time. Well great. HOW?????? If I move money in, then you can't upgrade the building. "busy."

    So I guess the only way is move money, and do NOTHING with it. Move more... do nothing, until you have enough?

    I swear, do the teams here sit and figure out ways to frustrate people? If there were no time limits to this new farm it wouldn't matter how long stuff takes. But there is a time limit. And most people can't sit by a computer every two hours. All day. All night.

    I can only hope the next time this "event" rolls around it saves some of our work. If this is a start from scratch thing every time, this may be my only trip through oz.


    Still taking a we'll see on this one. But it sure looks like there is more stuff available to build and upgrade than there is time to do it.

    No stuff is supposed to be saved from this run to the next one. It is all from scratch again.

    It will be a tight fit on time to build/upgrade everything, but still doable if you play often enough. It was designed that way though, hard to fit it all in. That way you would spend more gold to get it done faster.

    It is so obvious, hence the gold licsense prime offer curenntly running. Buy lots of gold, finish your island!

    Exactly. And too bad then refuse to install some form of gold lock, a gold bank, a warning before it's gone.
    I might actually spend a few bucks here and there if they did.
    Probably a good thing they didn't. Cause I won't either. Lost it too many times with simple slips of the mouse.



    So... ok. REAL tight fit for sure. And after a few tries starting over from scratch each time, I can see this just becoming one of those things I ignore.

    Still... it's fun for the moment. I do like a challenge. We'll go with that. Something new. Gotta figure it out.



    Speaking of which, HOW do you upgrade that exchange building? I tried after it was cooled off and it still says building is busy. What gives? If I could get more farm money moved I might be able to do something.

    Maybe tomorrow. Nuff of this for one day. And tomorrow is perfect beach weather so won't be on here much.
    lol.... trading the cyber fake beach for a real one. Yea baby! Any time. 8)

    I managed to upgrade the bank but the logic of it seemed to be something like this:

    1. Burn money at the exchange
    2. Wait 2 hours
    3. Burn more money at the exchange
    4. Wait 2 hours
    5. Scream in frustration because you realized everything on the island is not cost effective.
    6. Burn even more money
    7. Wait 2 hours
    8. Finally upgrade the frigging bank
    9. Wait for the upgrade to be done
    10. Burn money at a slightly lesser rate

    I guess I'm liking the change because it's different, but I can't help but feel like I'm getting conned the whole time I'm exploring the island and doing its tasks.

    Hey guys, I do a "Tip Of The Month" segment with my coop regularly and for this month, I decided to do one on the new farm. I won't be sharing everything on this post, but I'll share 1 tip here regarding the bank.

    Here's my step-by-step suggestion.
    After your first transfer of 46000, spend some money, but save 25000 to upgrade your bank after the 2 hours where your bank is on cooldown. After the upgrade, transfer 92000 and save 55000 to upgrade the bank after 2 hours. After that, transfer 345000 and save 120000 for the next upgrade. Repeat the same procedure till you upgrade to the maximum. Progress might be slow for the first 4 hours, but it'll pick up when your bank is level 4 and above. It'll save you A LOT of time later on, trust me.

    Disclaimer: These are only tips that I've gotten in the last 12 hours I've been playing on the island farm.

    Have a great month ahead with the new farm :)

    But, I don't have millions to spend. And the stupid bank won't upgrade!! And, this one makes me feel like a COMPLETE IDIOT! I loved the setting. Hate the steps. What happens if I just ignore it or let it go? I haven't been a player long so I have no idea the consequences besides losing what I've already invested.

    that's all that will happen Splash4Fun. it's no big deal if you decide to ignore it. Most likely it will come around again in a little while and it will be whiped anyways so everybody gets to start from scratch again. So if you want to ignore it now you may still do it at a later time.

    I completed a task (upgrade sugar mill) and I believe it said the reward was 50,000 sea shells however my balance is at 1257 sea shells. Glitch in the sea shell counter, or the incorrect number of sea shells was stated as the reward? Hopefully the first one.

    Thanks so much for the task updates. Super helpful for planning ahead!
    I'm having fun with the island. Yea, my main farm is only a baby 38 and could use more attention, but it isn't going anywhere. What's the rush?
    Is the island cost effective? I don't know. I'm just playing around and having fun with it. Full speed ahead!
