If everything vanishes after 30 days, so does the gold we spent?? If so I just spent gold for nothing!!

Why wasn't it designed in a way to trade shells for Island $$$$$. You have to buy the decos in advance to keep the people happy, the expansion & production costs are astronomical for players whose original farms are still being built. I think that after the 30 day period, all that was accomplished by the players should be saved, so that they will be able to continue and feel a semblance of accomplishment.
I do enjoy the Island though, it's a fun way to multi-task. Making lots of dollars to maintain, expand - original farms & upgrade everything at large cost

The Island is fun. Yet, one should have the option to trade the shells for Island $$$$. You still have to buy the decos in advance to maintain happiness. The cost are just as high on the regular farms for expansion & upgrading. To bad, that after the 30 days, you Island will start anew, next time around. GGS should save wherever you stopped, so that you can continue. Nevertheless, it's enjoyably tasking making funds & trading after 2hs into Island $$$$. Have a good day all.

Since the Island is an event, building should be separate and not interfere with the other farms building.

This may be the craziest thing they have come up with yet. I am going to build a farm and let it be destroyed and have to start all over? Waste of time and resources. I hope no one spends gold on this dumpster fire.

I just noticed that you can buy a palm tree deco on your main farm screen. If I do that, can I place it onto the island farm ? or do I have to use it on my main farm. I don't have enough room on my main farm for a large deco like that?

Would be nice if there was some kind of alert when the bank cool down period ended, so you know it's time to start off a new transfer.

When you're not on the island farm, you can click the airport to see the cooldown time.

What is the final exchange rate between the Island-dollars (that are left on your account) and the Shells you are getting for it?
Now you buy:
a palmtree for 35.000 Island-dollars....and on the farm for 50.000 shells (rate: 1 shell : $0.70)
or the big tree for 450.000 Island-dollars...on the farm for 150.000 shells ( rate: 1 shell : $3.00)

I like that we will have to start the farm again...we can learn from our mistakes, and eventually build the
"perfect" farm, whether you are concerned how it looks, or how much it can produce..etc..
Haven't you ever been working on your main farm and said to yourself, "Oh, I wish I had put those fields over there, and I wish I had expanded in that direction first, and i wish I had bought that thing first over the other thing and I wish I had upgraded faster, or not upgraded so fast..and now it is too late to do all those things, b/c you can't move anything around and you can't undo certain things...so ya, I actually like that we will have to start again!
Also, who knows how important those seeds will be in the future! Maybe there will be a certain specific amount of a certain specific seed you will need to grow to ship on the boat in order to buy the padlock for your stables! So, you will have to figure out how to earn enough shells on your island farm to afford these certain specific seeds! This is just a guess, but it would be the only reason I can see for this big "Island Event" Whew!
