Tips/Info!!!
S8 Team has fixed the Bait Shop Boost. Thanks Team for fixing it so quickly!!!
- The Bait Shop Boost is now working on the event bait Parade Streamers, making it 30 mins each.
- Keep an eye out at Stormie, the Newspaper and Neighbors Shop. You may find Event items.
- At the moment the new event crafts can't be sold. So watch your barn space!
- Instead of Mining, you can also use the Ore Vein to get those Gold, Silver and Iron. It's costs 1 Bronze Cowbell and it stays for 10 uses. Only Pickaxes can be used on it!
- Don't forget your Mole Collection at the Collections Gallery. Turning in a Mole Collection can give you Mining tools too.
- The total of 6 Metal Sheets (3 on each goal 6), which has to be Made to Upgrade both Floats to level 5, requires 37,5 hrs to be ready, if you are able to put them to Make after each other.

Again, just 7 days? And two platforms? Ouch. At least the item crafting is counted both in Jed's and Morgan's goals. I'm glad this time the event features aren't so expensive like in the election event. The turkey looks really nice, will try to get it :)

I cannot sell my finished products made from parade stand ... is this intentional or an oversight? In events past, this has happened before but TeamLava usually fixed it so the event items crafted from special building can be sold. Someone please let me know. Thank you.

The drop rate for flowers from delivers has been very very low, and the items asked for require 4hours or multiple item crafting. I only managed to upgrade one float. Otherwise everything asks for multiple flowers, flax and wool.
i kept refreshing my plane deliveries to no avail. When it's a doable deliver, no flowers fall. I've never seen it so bad.

Check your neighbours and the newspaper, that's pretty much the only way I get any.

I'm not sure what I did wrong. Is there a particular order to upgrade Morgan n Jed's floats.
Cause I am on stage 3.
I made 4 flower wreaths. Then went to make 4 chicken wires. I upgraded Morgan's float by using 2 wreaths and 4 Chicken wire.
But now the other two flower wreath are gone. And Jed's goals on the side say to make two more :mad:

Hi :)
If you started the Jed's goal 3 of 6 after putting those Flower Wreaths to Make, they won't count in the goal. The 2 Flower Wreaths should still be in your barn to be able to use to upgrade Jed's Float to stage 3.
Hope this was the answer to what happened.

Title says it all, 9 deliveries, zero flowers. Think I'm done before I even start. Absolutely refusing to play this ridiculous event.

Thanks for replying :)
If I remember right I started stage 3 for Morgan n Jed at the same time. I see what you mean by not counting toward the goal. I can't be sure of the order I did.
Anyway, I just put in my last two wreaths to make. I have to wait for them to craft, to get to next level to upgrade Mr. Jed's float.

So just a heads up to everyone, keep an eye on the goals, before upgrading or making. In fact I probably will, if possible use the links in the goal list, to get to the next task. Hopefully it will keep me from loosing stuff.

Made two streamers in the bait shop and then went fishing. Came up with two pompoms and headed to the parade stand to make the confetti and found that I only had one pompom. Checked the barn and only one pompom was showing. Restarted the game and check the barn again and still only one pompom. I hope that losing the crafts will not be the norm for this event especially when sometimes silver and gold is hard to find.

Update - Picked up the next streamer and when I went to the pond two streamers showed up even though I had zero before I picked up the recent streamer. At least I didn't lose the one that I had made.

I was happily enjoying this quest and then saw 6 hours to make a metal sheet. I have just picked myself off the ground. Lol. I suppose I'd better start sheet metal making.

That aside I've found this quest quite fun (please don't all yell at me).

I haven't seen it anywhere but .... the Turkeycopia holds "up to 3 turkeys pets" so maybe there will be more turkeys to come??? Fingers crossed.

Same here, I was a bit sceptical at the beginning but then moving between steps 1-5, it was doable so far (except the gold, I can barely find it) and then BAM, I'm getting to stage 6 and I see THAT, making these sheets will take probably few days :(

It's a shame we can't sell event items, it would help other players a lot.

All I'm reading is complaint after co plaint about this event and how it is so similar to last year's. Come on, Storm 8! Get those creative juices flowing - you're losing us! Selling all my flowers - as the first post I saw was a complaint, so I didn't bother starting! And I was on within moments of event beginning! Not wasting gems.....

I think I'm going to cry. I was checking where I needed to make one of the items for the quest and I accidentally hit the "use gems" button. I just used 694 gems (I think that was the amount). I know I gave no one else to blame so that is why I want to cry. Oh well. Time to move on and make sure I'm more careful next time. Thanks for letting me "cry on you shoulder".

I'm having a problem with getting the metal for the sheet metal to upgrade to 6. I've used up almost all my axes and shovels and only received one. I had over 30 axes and shovels. I'm afraid to keep trying because I only have a few left. What should I do? Is everyone having this problem?

11-12-16, 10:17 PM
Yes. I am also having trouble. No nickel yet, and only a few axes left. Unless we can buy some there is no way to finish. There are none fore sale and no metal for sale.

11-13-16, 03:06 AM
I wish we could buy and sell the nickel. My "lucky" farm got all the nickel it needs plus more. I actually found two nickels on my last mine attempt! However, my other farm struggles to get just the first three. I've went through twice as many mining tools and have never had so many rubies at once. Meanwhile, the extra nickel is taking up barn space on the other farm. There needs to be a way to get it out of there and if it can help someone else, all the better.

kindefarm1890
11-13-16, 03:19 AM
No one is seeing nickel in the newspaper or their neighbors shops since we cannot sell the ore. I agree with Jump00 we need to be able to sell the extra nickel ore. I have one nickel from mining last night and I tried to sell it but was not allowed to. I could try to make a metal sheet but I already know that I cannot sell the metal sheet either.

Jed's final float upgrade gives you Lucas Float as a prize, the one with the turkeys on it, sorry I don't have a picture.

mearro
11-13-16, 06:57 AM
It's really frustrating we cannot sell the items to other players, got some excess of pompons. I'm stuck now because I need gold and nickel and of course can't find them in the mining.

I also got some pumpkin items now.

missmeow21
11-13-16, 07:38 AM
I'm out all ready on this one! 8 gold to upgrade both float with the stars to just too much for me. I work and can't play every hour, and I'm not paying for gems to get a turkey. My farm is already full of too many animals. The igloo dog form the last challenge is my last. I hate how most of the animal habitats only hold one animal.

I love playing this game, and have been playing for years, but the challenges are just getting more intense and gem hungry, I think I'm just going to focus on expanding my farm from now on.

Good luck everyone :)

I'm sorry for anyone who can not find nickel. I had few problems. I have finished the event since yesterday, donated Gems to get ready faster. My turkey chick gives me, if it is fed, items that you can not make (pumpkin soup and pumpkin cake).

I made extra event bait by mistake. Now I can't sell it?? It's going to take up space in my barn and u can't cancel items while you're waiting for them to make ?? What do we do ?

Just noticed I also have 2 extra Pom poms wish I could help my neighbors!!

Seems to me if we can't sell items they should not be in our barns!! In past events I've been able to sell stuff. Now its in there and I'm stuck with it ?? Makes no sense, feels like a trick to have it there and I think hey I'll sell this and help. Oops nope can't sell it even for the rip off of 1 coin when the item costs way more to gem it if I want to do that.

We need to be able to sell leftover things like nickel etc. I got hakways through and gave up, now I have stuff purely from the float upgrades that I can't even give away. It's just wasting space in my barn.
Please listen to your players and make the items sellable ready. Thanks

The drop rates for me have been ridiculous. I can't find gold in the mine ( between the last 2 events, I had 60 mining tools to begin with, am down to just a couple and have gotten 2 gold so far), and because the drop rate is so poor, I cannot seem to get a mining tools even after hours and hours of making deliveries and big items that takes six or seven hours to make. About ready to move on from this quest and do something else instead of spending all day ( while I am supposed to be working and doing other things ) checking in on my fake farm. I don't mind putting in the time or the effort, but when it is not possible, there is really no point

I am waiting for the last of metal plates to finish crafting. I too made few stuff extra and they are sitting in the barn. I guess maybe the idea behind not being able to sell made items is that each person craft by themselves. But at least let us sell and let stormy buy the items. My barn is bursting.
I'm glad the raw materials, the flowers are available for sale. But I will say, compared to previous events, where as the event progressed, stuff was seen more in the newspaper. I never had to hord stuff. But not so this time. I bought every flower I saw.
I did see Nickle in one nbrs shop at the beginning of the event. If they cannot be sold, I do hope S8 make them sellable.
All the best to all!

As usual, my mine has decided to be contrary. In addition to the drop rate of pickaxes and shovels being reduced drastically, my mine--which is a silver mine when I want an iron mine and an iron mine when I want a silver mine--has gone back to being a silver mine...which would have been helpful in the last event, when it decided to be an iron mine instead. Just need 5 more iron--which normally isn't an issue, except for my mine's contrariness--to finish the event.

I do have 2 extra nickel, but since I can't sell them, they're just taking up space.

Guess I'll call out more pets to help in the search for tools...though I have a feeling I'll get more coins than anything else, even with the added help.

I used up 20 pick axes and 10 shovels and did not find one piece of nickel. I'm done. My animal habitats are maxed and they're not dropping tools. Correction, after three collections through my animals I got one pickax and it gave me a piece of iron.

To get around the nickel requirement the gem cost is so steep there is no way I would spend that much money to get a baby turkey regardless if it helps in the next event or not.

So I'm pretty much done, probably for the next event as well because I really don't have any enthusiasm left.

I wish I could help you out...dishearteningly, my last pickax gave me 2 nickel but no iron, which I need. I have 4 extra nickel which I would gladly sell, except that they remain locked and will not go into the Side Shop.

It's almost impossible to find 6 nickel. Used all my pickaxes and shovels (30) found 1! It's ridiculous. Too steep of a price to use gems to finish.

I can't even get to the place where you need the nickel because I only have silver and coins in my mine and I'm going to need 3 more gold to finish the confetti portion! Don't know why I even bother with these as I can hardly ever get the materials needed from the mine!

I would assume, as with other past events, that we will be able to sell event items after the event has ended. I know that doesn't help anyone now, but that's what I've seen happen before.

I wish they would not do this, I have extra Pom poms and it would be nice to be able to sell them to help our community members out. This event is very short yet the crafting times are long....we should be able to help out our neighbours!

Oh I agree completely! As it is, I haven't been able to build anything for this event for over a day now because I've used about 20 mining tools in search of the elusive nickel and now I'm out! My deliveries rarely drop a shovel or pickaxe, and I'll feed a dozen pets and only get one or two tools from them. I found one nickel long before I needed it and that's all I've found.

EDIT: Huh, not 5 minutes after posting this I did 4 deliveries and got 1 shovel, which found 1 gold and 1 nickel.

Ravenbluffer
11-14-16, 02:46 PM
Was down to less than ten mining tools, but finally got the final two nickels I needed after 50-plus tries. Now just need to craft the metal sheets.

It seems to me that perseverance helped. What I mean by that is I would have to mine seven, eight, nine times, maybe more, before a nickel would come; then I would get a couple. When I just tried three or four times or so, never got anything.

Obviously the challenge comes in having enough tools to go on long mining expeditions.

mearro
11-14-16, 03:46 PM
I will be saving all mining tools and ore that I get, during the time between events. This one came quite fast and I get a feeling the next one will be a fair and I quite struggle finishing them. Oh well, might as well get upgrading parts at least if not the main prize.

Yet another event where you can't find tools to get the gold or the nickel you need for the event, but I shouldn't be surprised about this because the drops were the same way last couple of events where I didn't get to finish the event because I all storm8 wants you to do is spend money which I have but I'm not keep doing if I can't find what I need after spending all my gems on shovels so I think I'm done playing..!!!
The game is no longer fun...

redfoxytail
11-14-16, 10:38 PM
I noticed that with any sort of drop in this game it's not random. It's time based. i.e. for 2 secs it'll drop iron then next 2 secs drop gold etc. So if you mine and don't get what you want wait a while and then come back. If you find what you want then keep mining/fishing/making deliveries until it changes to something else.

E.g. I get flowers in a row from deliveries and then save up deliveries if I get nothing to try again later. Or I saved up golden lures and when I got 8 election votes kept using the golden lures and 2 more 8 election votes immediately after.

This works with everything in the game that is supposedly "luck" based.

PrairieGrass
11-15-16, 01:37 PM
Also having the issue with getting nickel. Have only received 1 so far. Need to get in a timely manner as it is 6 hours to craft metal sheets so 36 hours for all 6 and only about that much time remaining now.

LadyFencer
11-15-16, 01:57 PM
I gave up. Not in anger or frustration, and not even really resignation. I figured the time left and how much I still needed to make, and there's no way to do it because of the time it takes on the metal sheets. I had most of the materials and enough tools to get the few nickels I needed but not enough time for crafting. This was one of the events that requires so much dedication to complete it in the allotted time, and I couldn't do that one day, which put me a tiny bit behind. That tiny bit was enough.

The only annoying parts are the time I wasted and that if I remember correctly, this prize will help us in the next event. That means the next one will be harder to complete. It's going to have to be a really great prize for me to attempt it. I'm thinking my better course of action is to make stuff that others can use to help those who have the time to devote to the game. Even if we cannot sell event-specific resources like this time, I can still find stuff that will help others.

11-15-16, 02:01 PM
Putting a plea out to the team and the programmers to fix the issue with not being able to sell the extra nickel. You have had nearly two days to get this fixed. There should be no reason that we cannot sell the nickel to help out other players. I have only one in the barn and a neighbor has already asked for some plus there have been numerous posts here and the buy/sell thread were the players need nickel to finish. At this point it may even be too late for some players to complete the event while other players sit helplessly by unable help them out. Not only should you fix the selling issue but you could drop the craft time of the metal sheets and maybe more players can actually finish. Please post that this is fixed before the event ends.

lynard12
11-15-16, 03:02 PM
It's just aggravating to get all the way to the final step and then you can't move forward. I've fed my pets countless times got three shovels- no nickel. It's almost laughable. I'm just frustrated that after all the work I can't finish and this is supposed to help you with the next event.
These events are becoming so time consuming and they use up every resource you have.... disappointed

Mitzi111
11-15-16, 03:58 PM
Typically I can't finish these events due to the fact that I have to actually work for a living doing something other than 'fake farm'. But I love Thanksgiving so I started this event on the first day and stuck with it. It took about 60 mining tools to get the 6 nickel needed. UGH. Glad nobody could hear me #$^@%*&# Yes that was frustrating and I was lucky to have the tools. But I managed to get the baby turkey with 2 days to spare. I was glad that I had saved up ore and silver, and found that people were selling the fall flowers. As for linen flowers, I just constantly kept the studio busy making those. The 6 hours for sheet metal was perfect as I put two in and then could actually work and sleep, so I didn't hate that. I think that I would rather have a 'few' things to make that took a longer time (like 6 hr sheet metal) than to have multitudes of things that I kept having to refill, like every 2 or 3 hours. Not having to come back every three hours was awesome. However, I have to 'pick & choose' my events because this is time consuming.

The turkey pet is supposed to give pumpkin-related items that will help with next event. Can someone confirm that or it's like any other pet and mostly giving coins? How much at disadvantage would you be if you don't have it, is there any point attempting the next event?

I get a feeling it will be a fair-like event, where you progress to next step by submitting items. If so then maybe it won't be that bad. Perhaps not having the turkey won't matter. Remember the Brazilian one? They told us to craft well in advanced the new items but we weren't asked for them that much.

I'm speculating that the next event is a County Fair event. So far I got crafts or coins from my turkey and likewise from another member's post (pumpkin soup and pumpkin cake). I feel the same as you, not having the turkey will not make a huge impact in the Fair event. It just gives you a headstart to collect those limited time crafts which I think we all will be able to make when the event starts. And it makes zero impact if you dont get orders of those limited time crafts or you can easily discard it if you do. Anyway hopefully its so, crossing my fingers. :)

This is incredibly frustrating. My hubby has busted his butt, used up countless tools, and virtually no nickel. He's stuck, and unless he can get 4 in the next hour, mathematically he won't make it. Since he hasn't had a tool drop in days, he's not holding his breath. I'm not doing this event, and ironically I'm stuck with 4 nickel I can't use or sell. I don't understand why, in a community game, we can't sell items to help the community. We're both thinking we'all sit the next event out, restock, and take a shot at Christmas. If we're still playing at that point. We don't mind the events being challenging, but they should be at least achievable without spending huge amounts of gems, or living on your device. Just my two cents.

PookieBear50
11-15-16, 09:56 PM
Wish I could help you out, but the Nickel remains locked for me as well.

Judging by the information on the app for the last update, it looks like the next event will be a County Fair event. There's also a hint that there's going to be another turkey as the prize...though it might be another chick or maybe a duck or goose. The app info just says "another feathered friend could be 'stuffed' into the event", so it might be any one of them.

On the plus side, you can start crafting for the fair, or if you're planning on sitting this one out, you can start crafting so others can buy from you. I know I'm going to have to start crafting a lot of the hard-to-find things right away: the next event might start as early as tomorrow, when this event wraps up!

Right toward then I found that if a downloaded some of those other games advertised in Farm Story, it gave me a chance for 14 gems (in Farm Story) as a reward. I used these to buy a couple of magnifying glasses in the mine. I used my last shovel and thanks to the magnifying glass found 2 nickel with my available hits. Speeding the crafting of the metals sheets was less gem costly that buying out the task. Anyway, I have a baby turkey running around.
Tough event.

I got the turkey a couple days ago and for those worried about being at a disadvantage for the next event, I will help alleviate your fears.
I have collected from my turkey several times now. I have got one pumpkin 1...just 1. I also found one being sold in the newspaper. We are not getting a pumpkin item every time we collect, as you can see if I only got it once so far.
Hope this helps alleviate your frustration a little.

After 3 nickels in 6 days, I found 3 more in just two minings (???) just after midnight last night. Maybe S8 finally changed the drop rate for nickel. Will need to speed up the last item by a few hours but I can handle that. I never thought I would have 78 mining items sitting in my barn. I sure hope the next event needs a lot of silver...

cbarros1217
11-16-16, 08:11 AM
Not me, I mined 12 times and didn't find any nickel, but I did get one ruby besides maybe 10 silver..... I only need one nickel to make the last sheet but, I'm out of tools and time is almost out. So close but so far :(

lydiahin
11-16-16, 08:34 AM
Not sure if I want to do another event after this totally frustrating event. Mining was a joke, flower drop was another joke, they came after you hardly needed then anymore. No tool drops on deliveries. Too long of a time to craft what's needed.... etc etc. I gave up after I updated both floats and then realized I yet had to craft 3 more metal, there were 18 hours left in the game at that point so you do the math! I had no nickel and no tools to mine. So no turkey for me. The developers have to realize that people do have a life outside of this game, yes, it is a fun game and it should be fun and challenging; not frustrating. I hope there will be a better challenge for Christmas, but I will decide to participate until I see some positive posts!

Well I don't know why I'm bothering...I just got to the point where I would start making the metal sheets and they take over SIX HOURS to make?! That would be a fortune in gems to speed up. So once again, I tried and was not able to complete this. If I went back and counted all of the ones that I was not able to finish because they are ridiculously time intensive, I think that would be a really depressing number. And now we have events where we literally cannot help each other. It's awful that we can't help each other out. It made it more fun and gave us a better sense of community.

I agree with you about helping out. I think they want to "punish" the people who have 5-6 farms and are able to complete the events faster. These petty tactics is why I stopped buying gems and packages from them.

I usually don't post here but I have to add something. I completed one float but was stuck with no gold or tools for 3 days. Tons of deliveries and collecting from pets and almost no tools and not one gold. If I had found enough gold, I had all the nickel ready to go.

The moment the event ends Stormie is selling gold and I get mining tools from deliveries again. Although I often do not complete events due to time, I should have been able to get 3 gold in a couple days.

Perhaps you have too many pets roaming your farm right now? When we purchase pets, we need to move them right onto the farm, so it might be that there are no open spaces in one of your pet habitats. Maybe after the next time you collect from your pets, you could try moving one of your pets back into storage and then try buying a new one?
