EXpecting lots of guests this seasons? Perhaps a lot of space is needed to contain them all? All throughout the season, people come and go, come and go. Now, if there were more room for them to mingle, perhaps they'd stay a while longer? Definitely, something worth considering!

[==Update will be live starting 12/03 @ noon.==]

I've been playing a game! Have you figured out this week's answer? The answer is: EXPAND

Troubleshooting expansions with SpiritWind;)

To open up a square, you must have a % of royal items on your board, have lanterns, coins and permits. Once these items are given to a particular square, they cannot be 'ungiven'.

If you tick all of the items in an expansion square, you get a big green tick over the land you've opened up.

If it does not open:
1. Check you had enough royal Points
2. Force close your game
3. Check you didn't give the items to another square already.

This is a good explanation: (thank you Queenzod)

Go back to expansion mode and you will see a big green arrow in the area. Tap on that. It didn't used to work like that, but it does now that they've changed something. Once you pay/give everything, it kicks you out of expansion mode.

Need help? You can post in the Bugs thread if you've tried the above and the land still hasn't opened up. Make sure you say which square you're having trouble with.

Post 4 below has the map.

Awesome!

I already had enough expansion permits made from last time but I am refraining from fully expanding until I replace those in my inventory.

If I remember from previous expansions, it seems to me that the cost per expansion is less this time around. Can someone confirm? This would be a big help to many.

So far, in the four blocks I have cleared, there have been no valuable finds, but I just need the space and not the great finds, so this is fine with me.

Thanks S8!

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.

I know everyone always seems to be begging for expansions, but I was really really looking forward to a fun goal oriented update. Last week's update was great, but it only took 2 days to complete.... oh well, maybe next week!

I think our turn will come... The winter upgrade talked about "Eight new exclusive items for your kingdom" - I'm hoping that will include some useful building and am guessing they won't all be 1x1 sized! I still have room to expand and am slowly trading away to get those expansion tickets but some of our friends have no more room on their boards and no open plots for expansion, so will need the chance to open up some space before getting anything new!
Consider this S8's gift to the rest of us... a week free of timed quests/events to stock up on all the basics, have our buildings ready for collecting/crafting/adventuring and crops ready to harvest for whatever comes next week!

What on earth possessed them to not open plot C9 and leave it as a hole? I wonder if it'll be used to introduce something new so people won't have to expand out further to reach a spot.

OK. I was thinking there was a pop-up box announcement or something I was looking for. Does the expansion go down to that gold gazebo? I can't tell from the picture but it looks like it might.

Pffft! Ive been working on expansions forever and still had 3left from last time. I wish i knew the secret of all those that can get fully expanded and still have expansion permits left over. My exchange is going non stop but it takes forever to get 30 exchange tickets for just 1 expansion permit. That is the ONLY way to get them right? What am I doing wrong? Anyone out there have any advise?

SpiritWind00
12-03-15, 03:47 PM
Not really any secret, it's just that at some point you eventually catch up and then start stockpiling. And there may be gems spent for some too... ;)

Are expansions the only update for this week? I hope that doesn't sound ungrateful. I was just wondering because I havent collected from anything that takes more than 12 hours to regenerate since yesterday and I have saved my energy from 2 horses just in case there was something more.

I had just gone in and not collected from anything yet. This was similar to another time we got lanterns from old Thomas and it was associated with a download at that time too. It still gives the gems but this is an additional reward on top of those.

It also had a similar pop up in Dragon Story.

I get the most coins from growing either carrots or those felladora flowers. It costs a lot to plant them all but when you harvest you get a lot. I get the most gems by only playing to goal 2 of a game then deleting it - they will offer you gems again to put it back on your device.

mreames
12-05-15, 10:12 AM
If you can use most of your energy for harvesting for a while, strawberries add up quickly, if you can harvest every hour. Carrots and fellora blossoms are great for plant and forget for 1 and 2 days respectively, if you have the initial coins to invest.

If you're talking about the harvest table it only gave a handful of coins unless it was fully upgraded. Then it gave a meal every two days. So if you didn't get it upgraded I'd think you could put it back in storage.

I haven't expanded to b9 yet but I think I see why there's a problem. So far expansions haven't skipped any plots except for this one. I wouldn't expand there just yet until it is corrected. Was anyone successful expanding to b9? Check out the map on the first page of this feed. A plot was skipped.

I thought at first that this happened only when expanding ones last plot, but now I just read that is not the case. There is no rhyme or reason to this. Has anyone expanded completely? I am planning on leaving one plot open, but am afraid to go any further than where I am right now because that is a lot to lose!! Not taking any chances. There really is no real big hurry anyway. Need to replenish some lanterns. But I hope we will be informed when this bug is fixed. It seems like there's been a lot of those lately

For the record, this just happened to me. cell D11. 3 expansion tickets and 24 lanterns; poof! Hope you figure it out soon. (I'm in no hurry, but I suspect the Storm8 team doesn't want to have to spend too much time figuring it out!)

Is it safe to expand the spaces we had before the new expansions?

Are you sure about that update link, Spirit? It takes me to a random post part way through The Blythewood Faeries, Part 2 thread.

To me, it was worth the risk trying. I've expanded successfully at least 6 times between 2 accounts since the bug was reported, some old, some new spaces. I figured that if I completely held up on expanding then I wouldn't have any new space anyway and if the bug bit me, it'll be fixed eventually anyway. Just my 2 cents.

I expanded to two of the older parts after the release and had no issues with those D7 and J6. Currently saving up to expand to D8. Can't reach any of the new expansions yet

Thank you too mreames.
On the color coded grid, are the yellow squares older expansions? And if the red squares are the new ones, I didn't realize there was so many

It's an image from this thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?77377-Nugget-2-Expanding) about expansions. Yellow is used for regular expansions, red plots require at least one permit

I would love to know when we get to expand to the golden gazebo in the bottom right corner. It appeared almost 2 years ago and nothing in the story or expansions since. It's the longest tease in history :)

I get the feeling it's going to be the same with that lorelei gem that was the final prize in the harvest festival competition. I thought it would automatically unlock some long-term new goal but it didn't. So I don't think we're going to be seeing anything more about it until long after we've all forgotten we've even won it.

Actually, I have a feeling the two are related, but it's taken a huge amount of time to get to this point.

Just a tip for anyone waiting to expand- whenever your lantern inventory is full, give them to an expansion requirement. That way your workshops can be continuously cranking out lanterns and not sitting idle. ( Most players probably know this but I had forgotten to do that for a while .)

It's a smart move. I have every expansion prepaid in lanterns. Just waiting to make my permits.

I'm the opposite. I somehow ended up with a bunch of coins and expansion permits and am now trying to finish up bunches of lanterns. Not sure how I did that.

I don't know about anyone else but I have a lot of expansions to catch up on to even get to this stage of new expansions at current I have 25 plots to expand to totalling 515 wisp lanterns and 41 expansion permits not sure how many coins this amounts to but coins is never an issue for me I have the maximum farm plots placed for my level and generally always plant fellora (unless kitchen is requiring something) this generates some serious coinage.

Expansion Permits are very costly to produce if you are not an addicted player. On this account I play every day 2-3 times and I have a lot of plots to open. See nugget #2 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?77377) to calculate your needs.

What's the word on these expansion bugs? It's been 2 weeks I'm guessing and I'm still missing 2 plots bought and paid for. Couple worked in new update until they didn't anymore. Saving one undone because I don't want to lose that 1 too. There's already not enough room for everything 3 plots would be crucial. So long story short what's the update? Or did everybody mail it in for the holidays?

Thx it solved my problem and my expansion permit was not lost either! Yey!

But pretty certain that it was my giant arrow formed by elf gnomes that fixed the problem :)
