You cannot expand the whole area. See this thread here.

I just noticed this today. I have a Bitter Bark ready to clear on the island to the right of the Battle Arena. This is odd as I have been fully expanded for quite a while and I didn't need to use maps the unlock this plot. I paid to clear it so I'll know if it is a new plot in 24 hours.


=mattjd169;1167318]Feedback = a BIG Thank You!

The additional land is a great addition.
Many thanks.

:D
Look at all that land north of the Arena!!

I have it too. I don't think your habitats are missing, I remember that spot was bare but wasn't able to place anything there and thought it was weird, then there was a tree to clear

I remember a notch in the island, but don't recall land there.

I'm pretty sure I am not missing any dragons. Perhaps it is a small gift from TL.

We never were able to expand or put anything there. They also increased the habitat limit (now 146). Guess it's a gift from TL and a good sign for future updates :) Who knows, maybe new space is coming on friday or later..

Actually they appear to have freed up two spaces, look at the space by the mine that we couldn't clear, have just started to clear that as well, only cost maps, so am doing two expansions as once, HAPPY SNAPS for Team Lava!!!

EDIT: Omg, new island is HUGE. Thank you TL!!

I was just about to ask where you got those islands from, when I re read and saw the word update. This is awesome!!!

The OCD in me while be elated I'll be able to color coordinate my habitats AND have some spare change to decorate again! AND I have 166 maps just waiting to be used. Says it's easier to expand? I wonder if that means no more asking for maps. If we do, it'll be interesting. Since most of my 600 plus neighbors don't visit and probably half have quit. And ain't nobody got time to find out who to ask maps from. Which will create a delay in getting them.

I wish we could gift them or something. I'll be a happy camper if I could just click on the space like the two free spaces we just got and throw money at it.

orleansparish
08-20-15, 02:35 AM
No fair! Before I updated I was able to clear both trees made available to us without maps. AFTER I updated only one tree, the one near the mine was still going BUT I had to use maps for the one near the battle arena. That stinks!

jim23cash
08-20-15, 02:56 AM
I already cleared land, and tried to place a habitat, so I could hatch some eggs, when it started processing, and moved my habitat back. I tried several times, it did it each time. :(

EDIT: when my iPad updated Dragon Story, the space I paid gold to clear was forested, and my gold gone. :(. But the new space is massive! If you look in the bottom corner of the pic posted above, you can see the tiny Battle Arena! That's a lot of space!,
And I think the new "Easier" to expand part is: it was 24 hours or 24 gold to expand the spot I started with. That is a significantly smaller amount of gold, it was like 10x the hours before, or more, I think.

Wow, 83 expansions if my eyes aren't deceiving me! Almost the size of the main islands. Thank you so much, S8! :o

Since the huge land update isn't available yet on Android (only two blocks on the main island for now), I decided to go ahead and expanded the space near the mining area (48 hrs) and cleared the 800k tree near the battle arena (24 hrs). But when I switched to iOS, there's no progress showing that I'm clearing the 800k tree. I wonder if it will be empty anyway after 24 hours?

Seems to PROVE that it is possible to do on both ios and android! Because it was working and clearing! They probably realized they weren't supposed to do it on android and removed it. Now I know it's not because they don't have time to code it, since I was doing it and they removed it!
I guess they have some contract with ios and not Google, so we lose.

But why appeared today a tree and when updating it got replaced by a rock?Most paid to kill it so....I hope to get the 800000 back.
Next thing how about a mining update to use dynamites again?

Lol. I have 2 accounts and haven't won a dragon in all the wheels we have gotten in the last 2 months. I've even bought gold and did extra spins. Nothing like spending 30gold for 3 maps every time I try.
I can understand what you're saying if I won a dragon here or there, and didn't buy gold for extra spins, but understand, if you had the same issue, you may also be a little upset.

Actually you can't buy as many habitats as you like because the limit was raised from 140 to 146 (weirdly). I can't imagine why we would get all of that wonderful space but not a high enough habitat limit to take advantage of it :confused:

Amazing how android did have the ability though, huh? Until they took it away. We could've had the same as ios but they don't want us to for contract reasons. That's fine, it's only a game, but I will not buy gold every week like I was doing.

Nah, we just had a technical issue that caused progress to revert and it affected all platforms, not just Android. It should be okay now. The new island will be available for Android in the future. I can't share a date in case anything unexpected comes up, but the plan is soon. ^^

Or so they would only have to deal with just one out of the two major problems of this game... at least for quite some time lol. Also, they surely know that if they raise the habitat limit too high too early, they will lose possible income from premium habitat upgrades.

I agree though. Especially now that we have 83 expansions to make and a bazillion tree foliage to clear out, coins are suddenly so important again. xD

I really do appreciate you keeping us informed Elsa 😊.
I realize there was a technical issue that was resolved, like the trees being able to be cleared again. But my point was that if android doesn't even have the capability to these new changes, why did I have the capability for a short time and then just ios got to keep it. If android wasn't coded for it, then I wouldn't even have had the ability to pay for and watch the tree change with timer and everything.

Too funny I didn't even realize they were being saved since we haven't used them for so long. I guess with 80 plus expansions that kind of puts expanding from the mining shaft on hold. Is there any reason to continue to collect pieces / parts there other than for food and coins?

saghaven
08-20-15, 05:06 PM
With the way the amount of food these dragons need, the food from mining alone makes it worth continuing lol.

I totally didn't notice all the new space until I spent into my App Store and saw there was an update and read the details. Came back and was like "holy s---". Gonna be weird going back to using maps but at least now they're not totally worthless when you get them on the wheel or something.

Okay, so I'm level 150 and all cleared for a long time now. I have also built the mining islands almost fully. Today, I see the new tree on the island to the left of the battle arena. I go to expand and see that I can get rid of that old dark bushy mushy tree on the lower island with the waterfall/lagoon. So I click on expand and then use money and maps to do finish the process. I have wanted that thing gone for over a year I think! So I click on "finish now" when it got to 40 gold needed. Now there is a green tree there. I then had to hit expand and use maps and money again. Will I be able to get rid of it? Bottom line question, did I just waste 40 gold? After reading the above posts I am confused as to what is going on. Please help! I am android.

Kennedward
08-20-15, 07:36 PM
Well, with more expansions, more maps will be required, so I won't feel as bad when I get maps on the wheel, but still, I can easily get maps from neighbors, I would still prefer other things from the wheel instead.

Dear S8 Elsa:

I tried emailing this as I thought I couldn't post the pics on the forum.

As I recall, I hit expand and then chose to expand the tree dark green tree bunch on the waterfall island first. I then waited awhile and couldn't wait any longer and hit the "finish now" button, using 40 gold. It then left me with a green tree and I hit expand again for that one. Showing this in the first pic.

I then was able to expand the tree on the upper island to the right of the battle arena. After hitting expand on that one I was left with this tree, rock, bush and brown tree, all of which seem to be still expanding / finishing. I did not spend gold on this one. Showing this in the second pic.

Please let me know what is happening! I appreciate your help! Have a lovely evening!

If only this and the stable update had come a little earlier. Made the painful choice of trading off 5 Mercury Dragons a week before the stable update in order to have more space for new individual types.

Oh well, :) at least I'll be able to bring out all the stabled dragons and make use of the 400 maps in storage; always thought they were white elephants when I got them in the Spin-and-win or value packs.

I too have had to sell many dragons and their habitats to continue to play, including all my Tropic, Dino, and some of my less favored world event dragons and habitats. (Soccer anyone?) I have no duplicate dragons in my game. I have sold over 30 duplicate diamond hybrids and have sold and repurchased my Diamond habitats over and over again, with each new increase, to make room for new dragons. I have sold all my special coin increasing prizes that I earned and had to put all my decor in storage. Unfortunately, this all seems to happen just before a habitat or land increase. LOL. So am I happy about this new land increase? You bet I am!!! Thank you, Thank you, thank you Storm 8 for finally making my dreams come true! I agree that with all this new land we will definitely need another habitat increase in the near future, so hopefully Storm 8 is already working on that. One can hope right?
Now to my question. I have held on long and hard to my last piece of expansion from the mines in order to continue to get food. Will I still be able to mine for food to use up my last 25 dynamite and then complete the last expansion? Thanks.

You can, but once you make that last island expansion, you lose the ability to use any dynamite to gather food until S8 decides to add another mining island.

Yes, as long as you have that last one island expansion remaining, each time your dragons leave the breeding den you will get sticks of dynamite. I thought I read somewhere that you may have an issue when you reach 999 island parts in storage. But that is a few months (years?) down the road.

When you reach level 45, the mine opens up for you. Left shaft only. At Level 80, the right shaft opens up for play. You can mine with bombs for dragon parts in the left shaft and with dynamite for island parts in the right shaft. When you discover a part, you are rewarded with either coins or apples, plus the part you discovered. This thread gives a much fuller explanation of the mining portion of the game.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I have been at 999 island parts for months now. That's when it taps out of island parts. When I go into mine now, I just go food or coins.

I don't care if it takes me months to clear it. Just having some room to stretch my toesy;) heaven! I can move a few things around now. I've been so packed in i spent over a year not being able to rearrange a single habitat. I finally sold my dino habitat just to have emergency room. It's been crazy.
I'm sure the habitat limit will get bumped up again real soon as well. They can't possibly think they can give us all that room & no habs to place on it.

1. You have that space to clear
2. Used to take longer (3/4 days to expand then another 3/4 to clear) and the cost was 1m+ to expand and 800k for tree or 990k for rock.

Do you still have to request maps from neighbors or did they simplify that? Just asking because I dont have access to it to see.

Yea I regret using that spot because now I'm sol with that extra food but I needed that spot so bad and figured they'd add more land that way. Of course they did not. It'd be so nice if they open it, it's nice on my other account being able to clear in both directions as they're completely different and can be worked on at the same time too

Yes, you do have to request maps still. So far, it looks like 60 maps per expansion. I have only expanded the one spot by the mine entrance so far.

My map strategy is to request from the Arctic Isle while I waiting for an expansion on the main island.

Hi all fellow ios players..join in the effort to get Team Lava to fix our game
Send a letter to support@apple.com Complaining of the poor conditions of our ios based game
Our crashing issue started whe they brought android players more into our game..i am not against them playing but against TL for not fixing issues that we have been having for months
I also have a neighbour that is having all her coins REMOVED rather than added when they tap to collect..this has happened before but they have not fixed it yet for this player. It is another known bug issue that TL fails to fix
So join in the rally to get the game fixed so that it is enjoyable and fair like it was in the beginning.

It's going to take a very long time to clear out enough space to really stretch out, but I don't mind that a bit. Some of my poor Diamond habitats have been squeezed between the Olympus & Gold habitats simply because of how small they are. I'm so happy that I'll finally be able to put some groups back together :D

The pace to spread out is slow but what is the rush. Most only got an increase of 6 habitats. So with in 24 days there will be no real need to spread out faster unless you want to haul out all the decor that had to be put in storage a year and a half ago.

Hi, I ha ve the ability to expand these spaces and I'm on Android. So it isn't just IOS (finally android is getting some of the IOS stuff!). There is an updated version on Google Play called Dragon Story Country Picnic. I wonder if it is in that version but I got it on the old version. Enjoy!

Actually you can't buy as many habitats as you like because the limit was raised from 140 to 146 (weirdly). I can't imagine why we would get all of that wonderful space but not a high enough habitat limit to take advantage of it :confused:

You can write your name in the scorched ground like we used to in the early days when space was a plenty... anyone remember those times ;) I'm pretty happy with the extra space, I can finally get some decorations out of storage and personalise my island a bit more.

Expanding was only difficult for new players because when you're new, you need to add many neighbors, as well as save up coins that you don't get much when you don't have many habitats and dragons.

But now most of us have the whole isle maxed out with habitats and many habitats are also maxed out with 3 or 4 dragons, so we already have enough coins to expand without worrying. The only thing we need are active neighbors to send maps.

I've gone through over 500 neighbors, most over level 120 and so far only about 5% of the 200 ice visited are still playing. It's been making my colledting maps such a pest. Later today I'll go through more but I feel like such a newbie playing, having to deal with this foolishness. Expanding one plot per week again, IF you're lucky to get maps back when you request them.

I know many of my neighbors stopped wall chatting some months back and seeing if they Bred any new dragons but I'm still trying to pinpoint when DS became so dull and scarce.

I guess if was the fifth dragons every week and waiting so long to introduce new features. Remember when each new thread used to be filled with excitement? One would think being able to feed dragons to level 15 would induce awe, but it was a tremendous letdown. Though I'll keep myself entertained for how with fully expanding. Gives me something to do while I get my millionth fail trying for black diamond and prism.

Me too really, since there's not really any dragons I want in particular now that I've finished my Diamond collection.

Although with the new expansions and new Prime dragons, I'm currently trying for Prime dragons just to see how they do in battles, and also expand when I get enough maps from my neighbors, which doesn't take long now that all my neighbors are active neighbors

I feel your pain. I did a massive cleanup of neighbours way back. So slow since they make it hard for you to cut social links in the game. One at a time and each remove neighbour request was slow, and that's after you already spent time trying to figure out if they're not playing. I think in the end I just looked out for gold or map request and anyone I didn't see in recent times or remember fondly was getting the chop. Now I dread having to go through that process again. A smaller number of neighbours now since I've been more selective, but just as high a percentage gone. I'm down to just golding one neighbour.

I do remember the good times, and am somewhat happy to see S8 moving back towards making this game fun. I even saw SummerCamp send me a map request, and I thought they'd quit ages ago. Still a long way to go though. Level 15 feature was such a disappointment. Breeding is still to unlucky, and the split rate of Black, Pink, etc is still so high now. Rare for these colours is even harder than Super Rare. So glad I was there for the good times so I have a few of those already.

This may have been mentioned ( too impatient to read whole thread, sorry ) but the cost for speeding an expansion used to be 700 gold, now it's 48. Or speeding just 1 day is 24, not the worst deal the game has offered me :) Might be what is referred to as easier to expand.
Just looking at all that land makes me happy, don't really care if it takes me a year to clear. :)

Agreed

I have to say in general all the hype behind the iOS 2.1 was a let down. A lot like the 3rd birthday celebration. They made a big deal about these two things but there are still root issues with the game that have not been fixed. Let's remove the habitat limit once and for all.

Well the android update we just got is 2.2.1g but it doesn't have lv 15 dragons yet or album, or fix the slow loading /opening, or the 1 line text limit. It only has the new land, which is great, but I was only able to start 1 expansion before the game is now unplayable

I agree to a certain point, because LV15 and Prime dragons aren't all that great, I still see most people battling with LV10 Champions anyways.

But with the expansions, I would say they are simply later than expected, it would be nicer if everything were introduced with the 2.1.1 update

Never mind, just needed to do a game update on the tablet, now it's there :)
Does cause a bit of game lag on Android, hopefully just temporarily

If you have the original/regular DS version, update that or download if you don't. It's the one that has the expansion (+ noble crystal) update and not the latest DS Picnic. But waaaay too laggy for me though. Wish they'd do something about that. :(

ANDROIDS beware of the update. Read reviews on playstore. Many people are having major lagging issues & crashing. Also the game keeps saying it's not connected. I wish I had not updated. Game is only just playable for me.

Strange. The level 15 dragons (the new hybrids) are available in the Market but the dragons' max level is still 10. I think TL is still polishing this update.

Country picnic version is playable for now but it only has a few expansions I think.

I posted all this about a day and a half ago, that the update is available and everything you just said and people rolled over my post like I was crazy. Anyway good to know it's not just me

Omg, the lag is so bad on Android with the new land/update.... With the lag plus small screen on my phone I accidentally dropped 500 gold on a habitat update, grrrrrrr... I was saving that gold for other things, so angry

I just got the update on my androids but it's basically unplayable. It's so painfully slow and once loaded I can barely move before it stops and tells me I have no Internet connection when I clearly do. These are brand new devices too, and should have no trouble. Also tried uninstall /reinstall, reboot, clear cache and data.

i would keep trying it and be patient. it worked on my old device and my new one. mine took a long time to load up when i turned it on though.

i've been wanting to clear that plot on the main island forever. finally.

You will need to expand to that area first using maps before you will be able to clear it.
Hit your expansion sign and that area should highlight .

New update is good and running nice. Also back in my Google play app list, thanks. I'm curious about a few other things, why we android users still have the 1line text limit? Why menu scrolling is slow and the scroll indicator bar was removed? And what's going on with the album?

Thread about new land? Well, I was just going around my island and was shocked

The Battle Arena is in the bottom left, for reference. I estimate there are 81 new areas to expand to

Thank you SO SO SO MUCH for all the new expansions!!! I was cramming habitats in so tight it was ridiculous, and my islands are looking very cluttered.

Would like to add my voice to those asking that we be able to mine for expansion parts again. Please? So many of my neighbors are unresponsive now, it takes at least 3-4 weeks of begging to collect enough maps to clear one space. Considering how desperately my dragons need to spread out, and with all this new space in sight but not yet in my grasp, I'm not sure I have that kind of patience! ^_^;;

I really feel there is something wrong -- I take 3 to 4 days to get required maps ! 3 to 4 weeks is too much - -- Do you send requests for Maps everyday ? Also , when you take up expansion , and if requests are not sent from your regular island , then you should send requests from Arctic Island on that day ! I really feel you must investigate yourself since waiting for 3 to 4 weeks is something like punishment ! You may try to add new active neighbors if it is required -- This is what I feel !

Agreed, I also realized that despite I have over 60 neighbors, I only get 20 maps per day, it seems there are around 40 of them are inactive, so it's time for me to clear out those inactive ones

You can get only max 20 maps per day -- as per restriction in the game itself ! So u need not blame neighbors for that !

Jrod333
09-04-15, 08:33 AM
TL should really open the mining back up too. So many of us were hoping for it so we can get more apples and use up these maxed out land pieces we have. Also there is no chance I'll ever use gold for apples, certainly not like 5000 gold it'd take to get 1 dragon to lv 15. We need new planting options as well, I have so many coins in this game they could set any price, I don't care

freshfunin2008
09-04-15, 08:58 AM
Does anyone know if you request a map from 100 neighbors and the first 20 respond same day.... if more than 20 respond that day will the accumulated amount carry over to the next day. Or are you only allowed 20 per request for each day?

roguebee
09-04-15, 10:42 AM
The requests appear to carry over. I tend to send out 1/2 half of alphabet one day and the rest the next. When reading the news, I can see that some from the previous day made it into that day's collection. What I can't tell is how long of a shelf life the requests have. Stray maps show up in the news while I'm waiting to clear the land. You can only receive 20 maps in a day.

freshfunin2008
09-04-15, 10:47 AM
Thanks I had never really paid attention to it because I always seemed to get 20 a day. But then I ask every day I can.

You cannot expand the whole area. See this thread here.
