View Full Version : Expanding



CampingTime
05-28-12, 02:30 PM
I have encountered a situation when trying to expand on the far left of the first island that there is a section right in the corner where the island juts to the left that will not let me expand there. When I hit an expand button, the game will not give me the option of clearing it. As I have visited other islands, I notice everything cleared in that same area except this same patch.

Is this a glitch and, if so, are the developers working on fixing it?

Thanks!

EDIT(KP)- Post From the Developer (12-28-12)


Thanks for the feedback. For corner and ledge areas it's totally not a simple fix like you suggest. For some of the seemingly random areas, we actually reserve those spots in case we want to add new on-board things (like the Dawn Tree) in future updates. Basically, if we let people expand everywhere, if we ever wanted to add a new thing to everyone's boards, we couldn't, because players would have built on those spots. That's only a few small spots though, 5 or 6 I think.

Yeah I'm having the same problem hope they fix it... And don't say that that section will be available to clear until you cleared everything else

The area you're offered in Expansions is based upon how much you already have cleared. As you clear other sections, that area will eventually become avaliable.

You know, I totally understand that, but this one makes no sense. I have cleared ALL of the land around this section, and have started on another level entirely, but do not have access to this one. If this is on purpose, then I fail to see any rhyme or reson to it.

05-29-12, 08:21 AM
Hmmmmm. if you've cleared all the other sections, then this does seem odd. I'd email TL support & see what they say. Good job on clearing so much!

05-29-12, 09:10 AM
Yeah, I'm having the same issue. I have cleared the entire main island except for that one patch. I kept waiting for it to become available but no dice. I am now on my fourth expansion in the top island and that one lonely patch in the main island is still there and still can't be cleared.

I know Kooky had the same issues and sent this over to the CMs. I think it was BP that also had an issue (for the TL Mods) and sent it over to engineering to look at. I don't think they've heard back on if this is intentional or not. I really want that spot gone as well, it's in the way. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Oops, I thought you meant the one spot on the first island that doesn't have the option to expand at all on it. Visible in your pic above, top left corner. Yes, you need to "step down" when going to the lower islands - the one to the right first, then the one shown in your pic on the right next, then finally the bottom one on the left.

ShortyKianna
06-19-12, 05:54 PM
Well I'm On the one to the southeast of the main island ( the zigzag lightning shape one) and am one the last expansion (not really, cause the bottom left corner of that island won't let me expand to it) so you can say second last piece. My question is: Does every island have 1 area that you are just not able to expand to or clear? Cause we know of the issue on the main island, but this one too?? Come on!! It's so annoying to have worked so hard to clear an entire island and then get disappointed to find that 1 piece of ugliness you can't get rid off.

Dreagons
06-19-12, 07:13 PM

Is anything EVER going to be done about the really annoying non-expandable areas that appear on several of the islands? This has been reported so many times, almost since this game first appeared, yet there they still sit, looking ridiculous and also blocking off the view of spaces near them.

I have given up on the random sparkling areas being sorted, but surely something can be done about these non-expansions!!!!!!!!

It seems to be an ongoing issue, since the exact same problem is also present in the new game teamlava just released, Monster Story (essentially Dragon Story with monsters instead). If they didn't fix that glitch for a new game they just released a week ago (especially after being aware of it for several months now through Dragon Story), it probably doesn't bode well for it getting fixed in either game any time soon. It must be a tricky one :-/

Ok so for the longest time Whenever I would expand on the main island you start out at, the final tree in the lower left corner of the main island would not let me eliminate it. I am expanding to the new golden light tree right now. I have deleted the app and turned off my device, so I'm going to see if that had worked after the other expansion is done with.

If anyone has any light to shed on the problem I have, please let me know.

Just so everyone won't get confused, this is the tree I'm talking about that won't go away.

So here's the thing.
I have the main island, then the "smaller island" on top of that, and then the island with the tree of dawn in another separate chunk of land. In that separate Tree of Dawn Island I've cleared like 3 spaces and won't be clearing again any time soon.

When I click to expand, I only get some limited options.
I can't clear the last bit of debris on the main island. And on the smaller island above the main one, I have four areas left to clear, but only three of them are highlighted and the one I REALLY want to clear is not presented to me as an option.

Do I have to clear the other three before I get to the one I want? That'll take forever and a day. :(

mymummy789
10-15-12, 06:31 AM
there seems to be one piece of unclearable land on each of the islands. Before they released new dawn, the tree of dawn was also an unclearable area. I wonder if they have plans in the future for these other bits?

What's KF ?
The Tree of Dawn is an update to the game for iOS users, with new dragons (light dragons and their derivates). The tree of dawn is a pretty , brightly-colored tree. It's in a small island nearby and you have to clear two spaces before reaching it. You can by some structures that gove your habitats boosts, but they're minimum boosts.

As for the timer on the witch dragon , I don't see it in my game either...but a lot of people do and I read about it in the forum.

I have two unexplored areas on my android device and I can't seem to expand to them. the first is on the main island, on the right side. the second is the 3x3 island on the lower right, the area in the center. On both islands, the rest of the island is explored, though on the 3x3 island, there are still some trees and rocks. At the very least, I have seen the 3x3 island completely cleared on people's games. What needs to be done to clear these?

So thats it? Thats the answer? I figured that area couldnt be expanded by looking at other peoples island. Wasnt going to ever ask. Was just going to move on and hope it would be available to clear after many many expansions, but now that see this thread, i have to ask.. why? Are they going to fix the issue. Its not like it is the last patch in the back of the main island. Its in the front covering other things. Moreover, there is hidden foliage behind it people cant even see is there. So when they try to move things to their recently cleared area, they wont understand why it wont fit.

What about the tree of dawn island? I thought we couldn't expand to all spots there too, but one of my neighbors has the whole place cleaned up. :) and I noticed that both of the two last squares I had left on that little island were available for expansion.

They unexpandable spots will be something like the dawn tree in future updates. I think but could be wrong that one of the unexpandable areas will be a nesting tree. Allowing one more spot for your dragon eggs

Yes, it was just like the corner spot on the main island - just an area with no expansion possibility.

Not every space on your Island is available for expansion, so if the spot you're looking to expand isn't highlighting, it's likely one of those spots.

I've cleared all but one square of the starter island but no matter what I do it's never given as an option to select when I choose where to expand. It's driving me nuts as I'm now branching out onto the other ares but I have one stubborn corner of the main that is still tree covered, using up space and I cannot seem to do anything with it.

Any help appreciated :)

Where are the best places to expand. I have expanded and 4 times in a row have had bitter bark tree. 800000 to clear.

tbka
11-13-12, 04:39 AM
This is a good question, I have completed all the possible expansions on the original starting level on the first island. I tried to expand on the New Dawn Island, but after finding two almost one million coin obsticals I'm disheartened. I am left now with three options, go north to the upper level of the starting island, go east to the big area there or south to that smaller Zish shaped island. Could someone in lighten us on which way will be the less expensive.

salinho
11-13-12, 04:55 AM
There are like three monstruous bitter barks in the first parts available for expansions on the edge of the upper island! And in the tree of down island i can remember a huge rock sitting n the top right part above the tree... I wonder if there's a "map" of the larger obstacles?

Horntail21
11-13-12, 04:59 AM
I'd try the z shaped island. Lots of 880,000 bitter barks on the big island to the east. I don't remember up top being too awful bad either.

11-13-12, 04:35 PM
Could I please get a TeamLava response on some questions related to expansion on the island?

1) How did my main island manage to - before my last weeding expedition - have BOTH 1.5K Timberwoods (and the related other foliage of the similar price range) and 15K Timberwoods (and related other foliage of the similar price range) all in one spot?

I distinctly recall seeing that whole spot filled with nothing but 1.5K Timberwoods and the related price point, but it seems that after the last update on my iOS, my island went funny and this was/is one of the ways it 'went funny'.

2) What prices will I be looking at for future expansion in regards to obstacle-clearing and what experience will I be gaining?

The new obstacle prices are to the point of being nearly unmanageable (I'm only level 13, you know, and I am STILL on my main island and I have barely expanded out!) and the experience I am gaining is nearly nil. The wikia entry is totally off in relation to obstacles and the experience gained besides and it isn't the fault of the wikia editors at all.

If I expand further, are the prices for clearing the same items going to jump up? Do the prices increase per level you gain regardless of what island you are on? Do the prices gain per expansion? Basically, how are the prices determined?

3) PLEASE can we get notification on changes to prices, changes to experience gaining, and just changes in general when we are given updates?

In good faith, I updated my iOS game because it promised bug fixes and whatever other fixes... and in turn, I got myself a mismatched main island of reasonably-priced expansions and obstacle-clearing mixed in with updated unreasonably-priced expansions and obstacle-clearing.

I honestly don't feel very happy about this and I should have left my last 1.5K Timberwoods in my leftmost area uncleared along with the 15K Timberwoods and 10K Bitter Barks as proof of the discrepancy of prices on my main island.

Basically, I would sincerely appreciate some transparency is all.

salinho
11-13-12, 04:47 PM
As for question number two...eventually you'll face trees that cost 30,000 to cut down. when you get to the upper island or to the new dawn island, you'll be facing fung stones worth 375,000 , bitter barks that cost 800,000 to clear, and mouldy boulders tagged at 990,000 silver coins. Le ouch.

Thinking back, expansions used to cost one, two , three million coins. And the prices for clearing stuff weren't be as big. But it used to be way faster to get an expansion done, really. Now it takes longer.

ShelesSweets
12-06-12, 01:41 PM
I've been able to clear the entire first level except one bunch of trees and rocks in the left corner. I noticed that my neighbors haven't cleared that space either. Does anyone know why? Will I be able to expand into that area at all, like after I've cleared other levels?

I have never posted in the forum, so forgive me if I didn't do it right. I just can't hold my breath any longer! I love all of the new updates coming out recently, so don't get me wrong; but I really wish TL would fix all of the "dead areas" that we aren't able to expand to! It seems like such a simple fix with all of the new content. I'm one of those OCD ppl who like everything to be neat and "clean" and it drives me crazy that I have ONE uncleared area of every island. I guess I should at least be thankful that they fixed the one spot in the middle of the island that always sparkled like someone had played with your dragons; but I was hoping the expansions would be fixed too! :(
I read the forums regularly, but never really see anyone complaining of this. Is it just me?

nikky2012
12-28-12, 12:15 PM
Oh no it bothers me too. There is a thread somewhere about it. The spot where the gold tree is used to be a dead spot. (That's what I've heard. I hadn't gotten that far before dawn tree came out.) Maybe one day they'll do something with them.

Nefertekas
12-28-12, 12:16 PM
Nope, I think more people had complained about this before! It is kinda annoying. But it's even worse in Monster Story, trust me xD

dragfed
12-28-12, 12:28 PM
Yeah I had already expanded that island before they came out with the dawn tree; but honestly that didn't make it any better. I would have much rather had that space be able to clear, the dawn tree doesn't even do anything once you have completed the goal of expanding to it. It takes up valuable space right in the middle, and makes the spacing weird for anything you put on that island. As much as I want the expansions fixed that's what I'm afraid of. That they'll make them some object that isn't moveable (is that a word? Haha) and useless. I'm not sure which is worse lol

nikky2012
12-28-12, 12:29 PM
For me I'd rather have the dawn tree then just dead looking trees lol. It looks prettier. But the spacing does suck. It took me awhile to design it and it'll change eventually!

Thanks for the feedback. For corner and ledge areas it's totally not a simple fix like you suggest. For some of the seemingly random areas, we actually reserve those spots in case we want to add new on-board things (like the Dawn Tree) in future updates. Basically, if we let people expand everywhere, if we ever wanted to add a new thing to everyone's boards, we couldn't, because players would have built on those spots. That's only a few small spots though, 5 or 6 I think.

Thanks for the reply Jake, it does make sense; I understand where you're coming from and it is smart to think ahead like that. But still, I can't I imagine any content that needs to be in one specific place all the time. Why not make them moveable and/or storable and you can always add things.

Darkstorm2
12-28-12, 12:39 PM
It took me a while to figure out why they did that but I finally did. They need to keep dead space in case in future updates they want to put things in. If we could clear every spot, TL would not have any reserve locations. I have completed all expansions. If they decided to plop in a magic fountain, I'd be liable to lose a diamond dragon. I would hate that. These in expandable locations gives TL options in the future. I'm ok with them now

Especially with the new craft building, anything that TL needs to add to everyone's boards could be crafted so they can put it anywhere they want; or just added to the market for a super low price. On the other hand, I do understand that it's probably not simple at all like I suggested. Like I said, I do appreciate all of the things they have done to keep the game new and fun (and free!) I just wanted to give some feedback on what I would like to see, and see if it was important to anyone else. Thanks again!

It's fine that those areas are reserved for future updates. But some are in areas that are obstructive, as they are on the very edge and will obstruct anything behind it.
Would you please consider making them plain grass? This would make them fair to look at and bring no confusion (and we OCD's can feel a sense of completion ;) )

For those of us that have been around for quite some time, Expansion costs have actually gone down. It used to cost a lot more to expand and would get higher (as it does now) each expansion or after a certain level you reached. But the cost of clearing folliage was much cheaper, $75,000 for one of those big bitter barks. I remember it costing me 5 million in coin and 2 days for one expansion.

Now, they've greatly reduced the expansion costs, but made the clearing of folliage 10X more for a lot of the larger items. Smaller items like the mushmolds and shrooms are about the same price to clear though.

Yup, I remember. I started in July with my main game. Much cheaper to clear the debris... I remember someone complained when the clearing and expanding costs shifted, because that player had cleared many expansions, but not the debris (leaving it for later on), which was a terrible decision. XD

I still managed to clear my upper island before things went bonkers with the prices...

I'm at Level 94 (Android). Just checked and for me, it's 700,000 coins to expand, 64 maps and then it will be 800,000 coins to clear, not counting any of the small stuff. That's for right now, but I'm sure it will change.

On the picture you can see that there is still a plot of land that needs to be expanded on the main island (black circle). And I thought maybe that was the last one before expanding to other islands/levels. But I've expanded to the right island (blue circle) already and the plot on the main island is still there and is never an option when I go to expand. Halp! =]
