What's your largest number of the same breed.

I'm on 5 Armadillos. Grr! But started selling at the third. For me this is the bug bear of the game you can't guarantee an outcome on breed. You can get the same breed with different breed parents.

duplicates are okay till you get the ones you want don't sell them... put them in habitats to increase on yours coins ;)

I sell almost all of my duplicates. I have two pyro ponies from early breeding/battling levels and two magmacore. I can't bring myself to sell duplicate super rares.

I keep all duplicates that earn more money on lvl4 than a lvl4 panda. I try to keep my habitats full all the time. And also trying to keep habitats on maximum. Currenty I have 25/25.

I use a similar strategy, but I use Panda L6 as my benchmark.
You fit 25 habitats? I need to go look at your space-saving layout because I'm stuck at 23 and don't have the wiggle room to move stuff around and squeeze in 2 more habitats. Maybe I have more of the big ones?

Aha! It is what I expected. ZX71 has only 4 big habitats while I have 9. You were able to use all the space on the ice shelf by placing your 4 big habitats there (I have 5 small ones on the ice shelf).

I would have to first sell two small green habitats and four L6 panda drones in order to open up a 4x4 space so that I can move things around for a tighter fit. Even so, I doubt I can pack in more than 24 habitats unless I trade some big for small. Definitely NOT gonna do that.

I have a neighbor who has a 25-habitat limit like we do, but can only fit 16 because 13 are the big size and all his farms are Grand.

But back to the topic of duplicates, I've lost count of how many common hybrids I've sold. I've had at least 2 dozen Pandas in my forest at once (now down to 15), but that's because I'm farming them. They are gradually being replaced by creatures who earn more.

Oh yeah, hundreds of Pandas have been bred and sold from the nest in our efforts to breed Emerald Dragons. LOL. Do those count?

I just found another way for the problem of moving things when you don't habe free space. Not sure if it is wise to post this, I hope they will not change this when I do...

anyway: I have now 4x4 squares available for moving things around. The downside is: not much evolution is going to happen here any time soon ;) I'll have to buy a new flower (which is really cheap) in a couple of days when my unicorn is ready but until then, I'll use the additional space.

All of my nature and water habitats exploded with Turtisles xD I got too fed up with them though, so I sold most of them. I still don't have an aquatter or ocean owl :/

Planther. I have 2 and sold 10. Armordillo, I think I've sold 17 or 18 of those. Other than those two, the rest haven't been overly annoying.

I have a neighbor who has a 25-habitat limit like we do, but can only fit 16 because 13 are the big size and all his farms are Grand.


On the south-east part of the main island (at the mine) I used to have 9 big habitats (8 green and one red). I sold all, and changed to 16 small habs (now 8 water 8 green). Although I lost some (a lot :)) of money with selling my big habs, I counted out it worths for me. In the 9 big hab I could hold 9x3=27 animals. In the 16 little I can hold 16x2=32. At daylight I collect regularly, so 32 animals can produce more money than 27. Also my neigbours can play with more habitats now (and I earn more money from it). At night, when habs maxed out with money, the 8 water + 8 green (small) hab can hold more money than the 9 big one. (one small water hab can hold 5k coin, same as a big green).

Now I plan to re-organize again; I will pass my 4 big farm to the ice island, and should turn two of my 4 big earth hab to small one (after transferring to the main island), this way I can go up to 28 habitat.

Currently I am at lvl 25, 26/26 habitats. Not all filled up to max but I am working on it. And as I said before, I keep all duplicates that earn more money than a panda. It is strange but pandas earn more money than some hybrid commons. Investing into pandas at the start is a very good idea.

Some more thoughts. Since at the moment there is nowhere to expand, let me share some of my thoughts.

- I keep mining, altough my realm runes are maxed out (at 20, you cant hold more), but since you also cant hold more than 15 explosives, I use up some when I reach 15 (going down to 8-10). With mining, you still can earn money and food.

- I am trying to maximize my habitats number (and so then no.of animals) as said the upper topic. When I will reach the real maximum (I wont sell my 4 grand farms, and will keep at least two big habitats, so the maximum I would can hold is 28), I will change the habitats as I keep good money earning duplicates. I try to make as much dark hybrids as I can and will change the little green habitats to little dark ones.

- Of course when TL should open us some new spaces I will re-think my strategy. :)

- I will get some more emerald dragons, because one emerald at lvl 10 earns as much money as about 25 of my pandas...

I keep selling them but in my quest for a grassquatch I think I'm up to my 15th plantlers. I'm getting very sick of poor ugly racmoon too.

I keep getting rainguin one after another, I stopped to count how many I have already sold. I am trying for iciclaw and now this new rockodile but no luck. I even got two glacial griffin but still no iciclaw :(

IKR - some people have all the luck. I STILL don't have any either. And I STILL am missing 11 animals. It WAS 10 animals, but they added another and it's been days and days since I've actually gotten an animal that wasn't a duplicate. Like, seriously, it's been nearly a week. With SO many yet to be had, it actually boggles the mind that I get breed fail after fail after fail after fail after fail. Once they added the latest, the Spruce Moose, I switched to ONLY breeding panda with skyger. Because now there are TWO green-darks I am missing. Guess what? Planther after planther after planther after planther. What's the point of trying to collect all the animals if every time my list gets down to 10 I need, another is added and it becomes 11 I need? Over and over and over. It's a total drag. I may move on from this game. ESPECIALLY if they continue to add animals too often. I love how some of us are like "a new animal every week is too much to keep up with"... so they make it TWO per week instead of 1 every other week. There is a whole thread about how the 90k-180k obstacles to be cleared are too expensive and a drag. What do they do? Create a 450k obstacle. It;s like, "Hey, let's do the exact OPPOSITE of what people are asking for!" :rolleyes:

If Planthers keep popping up from my Dark-Nature breedings, I'm going to see a transition from panda farming to panther farming. Not a bad thing, I guess, but tedious because it's 21 hours before I can get each one to L4 or higher.

I halted breeding to go after another Emerald Dragon, but that's becoming tedious too, so I'm not sure I'll bother. Maybe I'll return to Dark-Nature and see how many Planthers I can house before Peamoth & Spruce Moose show up.

SANDSCApe

Peamoth will soon be in the nest, but here's a peek at the album I get to laugh at every day. I'll bet most players have neatly filled in those 8 grey silhouettes and maybe some of the other missing critters further down in the album from the Dark & Watery realms.

While 13 breeds continue to elude me, the farmed drones now include 14 pandas and 7 panthers, most of whom will never be raised beyond level 6.

I have 30 habitats with 56 animals: 26 unique types and 30 duplicates. 25 of the duplicates are commons.

30/40 here. Rather than replace my large habitats with more smalls, which hold more animals per square, but hit coin capacity VERY quickly... I have 11 large and 8 small habitats. And room for another habitat should the RNG ever see fit to grant me a crystal unicorn and thus necessitate a gem cove. I have 19 duplicates, not counting the dozens I sold off.

Just like some of your other games, you have to rely on luck. When I breed and get duplicates sometimes I get an explosive to use in the mine and sometimes I don't. I purposefully trapped this behavior to convenes myself it wasn't just me. I can deal with the dups I do in DS; but when you don't deliver something I need to expand then it is not fun! What does it take for you guys to know we spend money when we are having fun. Just like a Casino, hell that is why they have free entertainment and free drinks so you are having fun! Between this and Farm Story rediculous shear drop I've had it!
