We have to complete all six goals in six days? Or there is separate timer for every goal?

kooky panda
03-01-14, 03:24 PM
They are all under the 7 day time limit. It is not too bad. Looks at post 1 and you can start preparing future items you need. I had to finish the first one today, but I started making other items, then I got the other ones done, until I hit the flax, and that took a few hours.
I also checked the market and bought a few of the items.

I don't understand this:

After unlocking:

Japenese Stone Lantern- 6000 coins
Bonsai Tree- 5,000 coins
Mediation Stream Path- 3 gems
Cross the Garden fence- 5 gems
The Garner Corner Fence- 5 gems
The Garden T-Fence- 5 gems
Kai Pond?
The Garden Pagoda- 75 gems

does this mean that you have to buy them afterwards ? they just get unlocked ? And if you don't fulfill all the goals you get nothing?

Only reading this thread it is possible to finish goals in time. But though it is not an easy task, especially for those who don't have much place in the barn and just sold all their chocolate and fish :(

Thanks so much ciarjen, for your help with the linen flowers. I didn't realize what those were called and I would have been looking everywhere for a way to grow them LOL

Does anyone remember how far you have to get in the quest line to get the koi pond? I don't know if I will have time to complete every quest because of other obligations, but I would love the pond. I don't have the money to buy everything either, I just spent it all on the studio, some orange trees and some pigs.

I hate to be the one that asks weird questions, BUT...I wonder where they got the idea for the Japanese garden stuff? I love it but it's not really what I pictured for a farm setting. Next they'll have quests where you receive ancient Egyptian artifacts.

Having non-farm related themes was common in the first Farm Story. We had medieval, Asian and many other exotic themes. They worked well because it was fun to redecorate & switch things up once a player got bored with their layout. I'm not sure how well this will work in Farm Story 2 due to the crafting/baking buildings. Their designs may not lend themselves very well with non-farm related themes.

I like the fact that by completing the goals you earn the new decorations instead of having to purchase them.

I fullfilled all the quests and I got the items in my cellar. They are great. This time we really got some nice things from TL. But I still have a problem and I suppose most of the players here. There's no space to place these items. So all we need right now is space !!! Please give us some more additional expansions. PLEASE.

same, just been trying to get fish - it said i had four hours left to do that; and i checked again and it was vanished. this after spending gems trying to do part of it before that due to having to buy orange trees :( disappointing when it said there was time left

I liked the goals until I was on the fourth one and they dissappeared and now can't finish the goal. I hate hate these type of goals that don't give you enough time to complete. I put the three goal rewards in storage cause I just can't stand looking at them as it will just irk me every time I see them and how the goals were removed way to early. It's one of the reasons why I quit Castle Story that and the goals that required gems to complete caused me to quit that game.

I worked my tail off finishing these goals in just under 28 hours, to be disappointed in how tiny the final reward was. Is the pond meant for the pets viewing only?

After unlocking you will find the items in your cellar.
You can buy additional items:

Japenese Stone Lantern- 6000 coins
Bonsai Tree- 5,000 coins
Mediation Stream Path- 3 gems
Cross the Garden fence- 5 gems
The Garner Corner Fence- 5 gems
The Garden T-Fence- 5 gems
Kai Pond- 100 gems
The Garden Pagoda- 75 gems



S8, can you re-release these items? I missed out on this event and based on how short this thread is many of your current players probably did too. I think these items are a perfect matches for the current event and would love to be able to decorate with them. It's guaranteed gems sales! Given you could previously buy them outright even during this old event\goal period, there shouldn't be any reason not to make them available again. Pretty please, with a sakura blossom on top?

Rynetory2
05-12-15, 08:49 PM
We weren't able to buy the items outright. We had to complete the goals before we can unlock, get them and buy additional. Without completing the goals, we wouldn't be able to get them. To make these limited prizes on sale so easily now (regardless of how many gems) will be very unfair to the players who had actually made time to be available and effort for the goals to attain the prizes then. Then what's the point of us participating in any events when we can purchase prizes like items in market place?

CottageRose
05-12-15, 09:18 PM
It would be nice though if TL would consider making some of these other prizes also randomly available through the treehouse. (I did, in fact, get my Koi Pond from the treehouse.)

I don't understand zero-sum scarcity-model values for virtual items. If someone else is able to get a pet or decoration I already have, I don't enjoy mine any less.

Rynetory2
05-12-15, 10:47 PM
Although these prizes are virtual, they nevertheless were attained through effort. It's zero effort to pay 180 gems in tree house game. Imagine you can purchase the spring fawn in the tree house, surely it will be unfair to players who had spent days/weeks to upgrade their blossom tree and collecting every 3 hours.

It would be fairer to bring back an old event (although boring to repeat. Yawn..) than having it sold effortlessly.

Apologies, I didn't know that they were locked by the goals. I just saw the prices listed and thought that as in other games, the goals were there to give you one of each item for free but the additional could be bought. I would agree with you that bringing back the old goals would be and equally fair way to give access to players who missed the first event.

I don't mean to start a war, but in a game where you can gem your way past goals/item requirements the point about effort sort of leaves me unconvinced. What about someone who paid $500 to upgrade their tree in 5 minutes using gems versus someone who worked the newspapers non-stop for 7 days to get the parts for "free" (like I did)?

There's also the perspective that having an item exclusively for a year is a benefit in it's own right. In many of S8's games they re-release past items for sale (Mystery Box first prizes, etc). Being the first person to display a rare items is a status symbol many people are willing to pay for that naturally diminishes with time.

CottageRose, thanks for mentioning that the Koi Pond is a treehouse prize. I did not know this, but it is somewhat unfortunate that you can't choose which prize to play for. I'd have to randomly wait for it to come up. Do you know if the other items (bonsai, pagoda) are also possible prizes?

I agree with rynetory2 on this one.

The event that triggered these prizes/items for sale is over. We have had so many events in the past, and i'm sure many more to come. So where would the line be drawn? Do we ask for every past prize to be rereleased?

regarding tree upgrades with gems...
$500 for gems to upgrade a tree is a far greater amount to spend than say $12.99 AUD to buy 250 gems and have change after buying from treehouse. Also I dont believe this is effortless since even once tree is fully upgraded it still requires the player to check in every 3 hours and collect blossoms. $500 is not giving instant gratification by any means.
The option to use gems is offered in every event anyway. So players choose, spend money or not. Everyone has the same option so I don't believe this is unfair. But, to offer the same prize to someone who didnt even participate? I would think that would be the option most likely to be considered as "unfair" and requiring little effort.

Totally respect your opinion Justkay. Im glad we have this forum to be able to discuss these matters maturely.
Happy farming to all :)

I do love a good discussion, and this one has been very respectful so far :)

I would like to add that you can gem your way past the 3 hour collection times too. So paying even more money will get you Bambi in one hour, and I'm almost certain some rich kid somewhere would have done this (if not someone from one of the many information websites out there that always have all the information on an event within a day of it starting). I guess that does "count" as effort given you're pressing buttons at least another 100 times (not including the effort to buy the gems). It certainly wouldn't match the effort of buying something straight out from the shop and the total gem cost almost certainly won't come close to even the most expensive item in the store.

That said comparing a year old event to the current one is also unfair. Based off the goals for the past event, you could have unlocked some of the smaller items very easily (or for a handful of gems to skip for those short on patience). It's only the more recent events where S8 have increased the cost of skipping ahead. Based on that comparison, in this instance I think being able to buy those items from the store for gems doesn't seem unreasonable. It doesn't have to be all of them, even just some of the smaller items (bonsai, stone lantern) would be nice to decorate with. While the pagoda is nice the koi pond seems squashed and doesn't compare to the new one.

I doubt TL will re-release the original goals. I don't ask for the items to be given to me. I am willing to pay fair price for them, for not being there when the goal was originally released. S8 have crossed this line in so many of their other games already. In Fashion Story items from the World Games event were made available last year on sale for those who weren't there at the time. I was happy to see what other players can do with the decorations. LTOs have come back on limited time sales. Even first prizes from mystery boxes have been released for a fraction of the amount a player would have spent to win a 1% chance item.

I hope TL considers your request and give you a chance to aquire what you desire. Or better yet perhaps they can offer a a new event with more desirable prizes that squash the other decorations you seek such as pagoda bonsai etc. after all they do such a good job improving on prizes. Bambi has got to be the most adorable pet/prize they have released so far, in my opinion anyway.

Well so much for effort... the Spring Fawn is now purchaseable on Android for 500 gems! Sort of makes me feel a bit like a chump for staying up late at night and grinding that wheel. Has it even been a day since the event ended? Oh, well, c'est la vie.
