Playing on iPad 3 IOS 5.1.1 DS version 1.0.2 Storm ID ogerriz

I am upgrading a Green habitat (still on-going) in meantime 2 dragons are there. People play with those dragons & leave tips. I collect them and as soon as I collect them it sparkles again as if they left more. So I collect again but this time it increases my couns then reduces it by 150. I have restarted the iPad.

Please fix bug

I am guessing that you may have a glitch and you get coins, then the game resets and takes those sparkle coins away.
Try restarting your device to see if this corrects, if not can you post a photos showing the reduction of coins when you try to collect?

I thought people couldn't play with dragons in a habitat going through an upgrade. None of mine have ever had the sparkles after playing when going through an upgrade even though all the others on my island get them.

I will report this over. Thanks for the pictures.
Try moving this habitant to other area to see if you still have this issue.

also try deleting your game and redownloading from the app store.

So, I couldn't buy more habitats so I upgraded a red one which currently had a dragon on it. The glitch started again. It is in a totally different area. The litch must be related to the habitat being under construction but is still allowing visitors to play with the dragon in place. Tips are fluctuating again.

Question- I'm having same issues with the sparkles as the above poster. But I want to know if I delete the game to re-install, will I lose everything? Will my neighbors, dragons, coins, apples be gone? Please let me know.

One other thing- I have a habitat with two level 6 fire dragons that should be earning 252/per hour, but they keep maxxing out at a total of 93 coins. The "collect now" tag flag comes and when I click on it to collect, I only get +93. What do I do?

If you delete and redownload you will not lose your games. Games are saved on Team Lavas servers under your storm ID.

I think this works like pet hotel. Has it been an hour when your collect now comes on?

No, the "collect now" comes on in less than an hour.

I believe what is happening is you collect will show up before the hour is up, if you tap on it before then you will get partial coins for the time. I always go ahead and collect whenever I can, so my timer starts over building up the coins again.

Sorry this took 4 posts, I'm not sure how to delete the failed ones. So you can see from my screenshot that it's not just habitats, I previously had my breeding den there and it sparkled for a bit even after I moved it. It doesn't change the coin counter when a structure other than a habitat is there, but it's kind of annoying and makes the space less useful.

I experimented a bit, and these are my conclusions, playing on an iPhone5 using IOS 6.0.

What is the false sparkle effect?

Some single squares (i.e., a small habitat is 3x3 squares, a small farm is 2x2 squares) make anything placed on top of them sparkle, even things like farms and nests.
This false sparkly effect resembles the one displayed when another player has interacted with your dragons.
The sparkly spot is active in cycles of around 20 seconds, although I haven't timed it precisely.


Unsparkling

Things get "unsparkled" when they release their contents - e.g., a habitat gets unsparkled when you collect its coins, a farm gets unsparkled when its crops are harvested.
Things don't need to be over the sparkly spot to get unsparkled.
A false sparkly habitat appears to give you an extra 250 coins, just as if another player had interacted with its dragons.
A sparkly farm gives you crops AND money - e.g., impruberries give you 6 food and 20 coins, buffbeets give you 20 food plus 20 coins.
You can have several sparkly things (e.g., three farms) at the same time, and release their contents separately. They will each become permanently unsparkled, unless they are over the sparkly spot.
Items seem to lose the false sparkly effect when the game is powered off, but they will regain it if they are still over the sparkly spot.


The clawback effect

When the false sparkly spot activates it does two things: it makes anything on top of it sparkly; and it claws back any bonus money it released since the last time it was active. It doesn't take any money that accumulated naturally from, e.g., having dragons in a habitat.
If you have spent bonus money then your game will connect with the Team Lava servers and then roll-back whatever you have spent, giving you the balance.

Example: you have 600 gold and you receive 250 bonus coins from a false sparkly habitat, making 850 coins. You then plant a Firapple which costs 650 coins, leaving you with only 200 coins - less than is due to be clawed back. The next time the false sparkly spot activates it will undo your planted crop and return its cost to you, minus the amount it clawed back. You will end up with the 600 coins you started with.


I hope this helps!

This bug affects me too. Once I have extra space on my island, I'll try moving my habitat to see if I still get the glitched sparkly effect.

One thing I noticed is that it may be related to the location of where the sparkles are. For example, this issue first started on my Big Green Grove. I moved the Big Green Grove somewhere else and replaced it with a Big Yellow Plateau although the sparkly effect now haunts my Big Yellow Plateau where the Big Green Grove used to be. Once again, I'll try moving the Big Yellow Plateau to a different location to see if the glitched sparkles follows the habitat or if it impacts the current physical location on the island.

I moved my Big Yellow Plateau to a different location and replaced it with a White Meadow and I haven't seen the sparkles in the same location. However, if I move the Big Yellow Plateau back to the glitched location then the sparkles return.

I have a iPhone 4 with Dragon Story: New Dawn v. 1.1.2.

For me it dosen't matter what kind of building or nest I place on the "sparkling spot", it sparkles anyway. When I move the sparkling building/nest it won't stop sparkle until I restart the game.

I'm having a similar issue. My sparkles are traveling. It started on my purple island and moved over to the green. I'm playing on an iPad mini. I transferred the game from my phone yesterday. The sparkles started then. The iPads version is 6.1.3 and says its up to date. The phone is a 6.1.4 and says the same. I'll mention the islands occupants are breeding in case it has something to do with this problem.

I'm having the same issue I think. I will collect coins from habitats that sparkle and reset quite often allowing me to collect almost every 3-5 seconds. I will collect enough coins to upgrade or buy a new habitat and with in a few seconds of making the purchase the game with "process" and when it's done the new purchase will be removed and totally disappear and the coins will be all gone as well. It seems to only do this when the habitats are rebooting and sparkling very often.

I did uninstall and reinstall and mine is still doing it...and on different habitats at different times....when I try to purchase an item, doesn't matter what it is with those frequent sparkle coins....it "takes" them and the purchase away and leaves me with my original amount I had....once I started trying to d

With these ones that reset quite frequently, have you checked your newsfeed to see if people have played with your dragons. If they haven't you may have some sparkling spots on your island. These are spots that sparkle for no reason and don't give bonuses (the count rolls back). Move your habitats away from this spots and put other buildings there.

I read thru some of the other answers and previous posts....and I moved my stuff....my spell house is now sparkling but since that isn't giving false coins I don't mind....does the spell house usually sparkle? I'm only on level 12 and haven't used it yet.

The spell house doesn't usually sparkle. It seems that's a spot on your island that is constantly sparkling.

Having trouble moving a habitat to a plateau I just cleared. Am into allowed to move one? Wasn't sure if I could move it or if I had to builds whole new one.

Also my habitats never sparkle after the dragons have been played with.
