Oh I hope not faeries..still trying very hard to get to that point in the game. It makes me so sad when I can't participate in a quest or update due to where I am in the game.

Seriously700~ I'm liking your ideas tacked onto mine in the closed Horse Training thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83928-Castle-Story-08-13-Update-Horse-Training&p=1159344&viewfull=1#post1159344). :)
You're probably right - definitely gonna see some walls (fences) & some kinda paths, cuz TL luuuuuuuuuuvs those, lol.
...and I have some of those horseshoes left over from St. Patrick's '14, too, but those were lucky, lol...if we have to collect horseshoes for the prizes, it'll be like events of the past and they won't hit our inventories but instead, add to the individual (& community) counter on the right. 'Tis a shame, too- I *still* want those grapes from the vineyard event to be in my inventory!
(& wine, jam etc etc to MAKE with 'em, lol)
Definitely hoping for something to craft this go 'round... Just collecting stuff (for the prizes AND for the upgrades on whatever building) gets a bit tedious and kinda boring after a couple of days.
*fingers crossed* for more to do.

Ps. icydove ~ you've got a really good point there about the Enchanted stuff! Hmm...

08-19-15, 03:51 PM
I feel like a bit of a twit. I only started taking part in some of the challenges a few months ago, so it never even occurred to me that the fancy beams and blocks were to be used in a later update. I used them to build something else as I am still working my way through the story line. I can make more in time for the next update, but I don't have Sir Daisy yet either. I've still got about 10 mitts to make. Do you think the next challenge will expect players to have Sir Daisy?

Plus I don't understand why people are talking about Enchanted blocks and beams. What am I missing? :confused:

SpiritWind00
08-19-15, 05:11 PM
Enchanted block and beam were the rewards for the mini goal last week and a bottle of lumin essence. It's only my guess, but no way would it include Sir Daisy. It looks like we get quite a few weeks to finish a core story quest line.

As I see it, every event has been aimed at players from level 15. So, it can't have items that cannot be crafted at that level. I've saved an alicorn or 2 to have a bit of spare energy to burn. Bring on update day! :)

BuddyB111
08-19-15, 05:51 PM
That's great news then! I'm crafting Enchanted beams and blocks for the Griselda story line, so I will save them until we find out what happens next. :)

Unlocked again. Does this mean we might get an update today? Last week was a sale. Will today be another yawn update? Is anyone else besides me really tired of horseshoes and brown horses? Just can't seem to work up the enthusiasm for updates like I had in the good old days when the artwork was awesome and the storyline was interesting. Not much to look forward to nowadays. Is anyone even here?

If it's the same as Farm Story 2, when the update triggers, it will give a chance to watch ads for coins and possibly gems. Don't know for sure because the videos won't load on FS2.

It should appear around update time. This is in some of S8s other games. Tap to watch a 10-20 second video and get a gem...up to 10 gems per day. Sometimes the video may have a problem loading (message will pop up) but just force close & try again. You don't really have to 'watch' the video. Just let it play to the end while doing something else. Then tap the 'X' in the upper corner to get the gem & play another. Mostly game promotions.

FS2 only let me watch 3 videos for gems today. It's still an easy way to get gems.

You can't sell trees or rocks that you've got when you expand to a new square. Those you buy in market, you can sell:)

I believe that if you purchase a tree or rock formation from the market, you can sell it. If you get the tree or rock from an expansion, it cannot be sold. I had some saplings I had purchased, and I still have sale option for them. But my other trees do not have the option.

Not sure what the free gift was about, but I suspect it will become active when the update is released. Maybe they were testing it? I wouldn't worry until update time, and it it is still not working correctly, I guess we can write support.

I have over 20 GB memory left on my iPad mini, and have removed the background programs as I don't need them to run there, and it is still crashing now, albeit later than many with iPad minis. I have written support, but have only received a canned response so far. Seems to be a nearly universal problem with the minis.

I am looking forward to the update for today. I feel for those who may not have played long enough to be able to play the update, but if it is part of the main storyline it will come up for you when you reach the point where it belongs. Don't fear, usually only the nonessential updates are released for those who are far enough in the story to enjoy them. Even then, it is not required to finish nonessential quests, even if you are far enough along. If a new pig is released in our kingdoms, everyone will will eventually get to the point where they can get him.

For the first time since they have messed with the log in screen, I actually like the new one. Of course, the artist somehow decided to put background fog in the lady ruler's hair, which should be in the foreground and not foggy, but it isn't too annoying and the rest of the screen is quite nice. Not sure if I care for the littering the screen with more stuff, as in the free gift of watching a video, but if it allows those who don't buy gems to earn them, as it has been suggestd, then I can put up with a small amount of screen litter to help those folks. Sure wish they would hire artists on the caliber of the original artists, but guess we can't have everything. Just musing.

Is that 1:00 pm Pacific time? If so, at least we aren't left hanging with another "there will be a delay".

I don't think they put too much effort into the log on screen. The castle has always leaned, and previous changes have been less than artistically acccurate or attractive, in my opinion. At least this last one has something to do with castles and royalty, even if the artist is unaware of how to place fog in the background, and not in the foreground characters hair. It has more to do with a Castle Story. I like it better. The draperies look royal, at any rate. I never did understand the trees in the original screen. Yes, I too wish they had taken the effort to straighten the castle.

At least it appears that we are done with the herds of horses for a while, but I could be wrong. I can wait an hour for the update.

Right! I knew it sounded familiar! Hope we won't have to caft another glimmerbat habitat in order to get the glimmer bat..
I didn't get enough time to get the bat from the adventures back then so I hope we can continue the quest instead of starting it over...!

My guess is you've already found out. IF you have to start from scratch..... Maybe if you get the glimmerbat, you can hold off finishing and try to get a 2nd glimmerbat.

I foresee a November month-long timed event coming which depletes all resources for us to build a cornucopia with a 12 or 16-hour timer on it and drops a piece of corn, tomato or 1 roast chicken. LOL!!! ... Or maybe that will be in the Baron's tent tomorrow, lol.
Oh, and an Earth Wisp of course, lol (which is about as related to a cornucopia & makes about as much sense to drop from something Thanksgiving-related as it does to drop from an Essence Cesspool which wasn't *even* H'ween-related, LOL)

Good question! It's 12 in S8 land but I just opened my game & nothing's there yet except a new value pack with all 3 tokens for $1.99

Never mind. Turkeys!

Visit Library 3 times
Read the Turkey scroll

I only put out 1 library this morning...lol

amerirish
11-12-15, 01:07 PM
My value pack has a timer that just under an hour so maybe that's when it starts :confused:

ETA: As soon as I completed the purchase of the value pack, Old Thomas showed up

OT: "Brr...It's gotten chilly around the Glimmerwood."
OT: "Yes indeed! Like my favorite scroll story.."Winter Is Coming" "
Me: "Yikes, I hope winter doesn't last long for us"
OT: "Of course not, it's just a story after all. We don't have long winters"
OT: "We also don't have turkeys either."
Me: "Huh, that is true. I never noticed. Where do we find one?"

Quest: Where Are The Turkeys?
Go to the library (Find the scroll) 0/3
Read the turkey scroll (What's it say?) 0/1

I only have 2 libraries so I don't know what comes next, but it is a 3 Day quest.

Good luck all!

Once you start the event, you will have 8 days to complete it.
You can start the event any time between today and 11/26.
If you have not manually started the event by 11/26, the game will start the event for you. You will have 8 days from 11/26 to complete the event.

I even tried moving some of the larger buildings and such to see if the sign was hiding behind something. Do they take away the signs on new expansion days until it's released? Weird, I guess I do have something to look forward to after all...here's hoping it will come back after update time...you could go to market then expand to see the expansions that you have not done :)

Interesting. The one I had left from last expansion time is still the most expensive one:confused:

Edit: Expansion, that is, lol.

Thanks, I had forgotten where there was a work around. Crisis averted though; a couple of signs did return and I counted 3 old and 6 new plots. I pre-pay my wisp lanterns because I'm always maxing out on wisps & lanterns. I guess it's back to the lantern factory for me!

The new update is with expansions. So let your coins roll, lantern shine, and expansion permits fly (or make a huge dent into your trade ticket stock).
http://www.portailsmm.com/cs/pics/CastleStory-ExpansionsMap.png

New plots:


X Y Coord RP Lanterns Coins Permits
B 6 B6 3,300 20 310,000 1
N 8 N8 3,000 19 350,000 1
B 9 B9 3,300 24 310,000 3
D 11 D11 3,800 18 520,000 3
E 11 D11 3,300 24 310,000 3
J 11 J11 2,500 23 250,000 3


For this session you will need:


Royal Point: 3,800
Lanterns: 128
Coins: 2,050,000
Permits: 14


That converts to 420 trade tickets.

Love the expansions, thank u S8. I'm wondering if u missed one ? After expanding I have this one spot that looks really odd cuz it's not open for expansions. If u look at the picture above. The strange gray square with all the open ones around it. :). Sorry but it bugs me. :/

It's number C9?

mreames
12-03-15, 01:53 PM
Nope, I've expanded on 3 sides of that one and it's still not expandable. I thought it surely would be.

Edit: oh I see that you expanded around it, too and you must have been addressing S8. ;)

I want to be able to expand to the golden gazebo in the bottom right corner!! That thing appeared almost 2 yeas ago and nothing done towards it at all.

I am not in any hurry to get to the gazebo. I suspect that will be the last block of real estate we expand to and (just my opinion so don't shoot me or take it as more than that) that it will signal the end of the game. As much as I would love to see us build a harbor and sail to new lands in which to expand, I just don't see S8 putting much more effort into CS than they need to. In the past year they have released no new animated buildings and the storyline has been minimal. The events have been lackluster at best (again, just my opinion) and S8 appears to be making enough money on gem traps so that they have no real incentive to improve on the game like TL did. I used to look forward to update days, but after a year of disappointment after disappointment, I no longer stock up at gem sales because I know there will be nothing much to do anymore but pile useless decorations into storage.

I don't see much to gush about lately. Castle Story is still my favorite game though, because of the awesome community of people who play it, and I am not in any hurry to see it end as I have met many fantastic people here. So no, not in a rush to get to the gazebo. I say let it sit as a testimony to the most awesome game in S8's stable (no I don't play DS anymore and IMO, this game is the best because as slow moving as it is, it is the only "story" game S8 still produces that has a story line.) and as testimony that our kingdoms are still awesome places to hang out in and chat with our wonderful friends and neighbors.

Agreed and agreed!

I understand it's about making money. But, I for one have stopped spending money on this game. I strictly play for free. When the updates provided more than just decorations, and when the story line was part of the updates, I bought gems and value packs. But after being burned several times with gem traps, and prizes that were strictly deco, I no longer spend real money to advance. I'm also noticing less neighbors are playing regularly, and I am certainly not as eager to log in as I used to be.

Just my two cents, but I think S8 could make even more money if they offered more things that people really want. Dogs and cats are a perfect example, we asked, they supplied them, and I purchased some from the Barons tent.....(along with many others) But now we are in need of an animal shelter to deal with the inundation of dogs and cats. How about replacing them with some of the other things the players have been asking (clamoring :rolleyes:) for?

If there's an update today, it's probably iOS only, I'm guessing the follow up chapter style event with the jewel from the mystery dinner event. Either that or a monster hunt. And as far as I'm concerned, those may as well be iOS only, given how impossible it is to get enough gold tokens as an Android player.

I will respectfully disagree. If we are lucky enough to get a storyline update, then it won't be timed or a 'special' quest. That means you can wait until you are finished rearranging and complete it at your leisure. Meanwhile, those of us who are bored to tears will have something to do. :) Therefore, I'm hoping that we won't get another storybook type thing that is timed.

I try to do any rearranging on the weekends, when there are no updates. That way buildings will be in place and ready on Thursdays. Just in case. :D
