yeaaayyyyyy thank you Storm8 you allow me to join this V event as android participant... hope i have a big big luck to win the grandprize. Cute cub, just like the white one we got from Xmas event. is it bigger? does that mean we can get more than one V cubs? and thanks for making it longer, we have 4 more days instead of 2 for turning in the collections. i hope Storm8 team would increase the drop rate for every activity so we have more chances to win that lovely cub! :o sooo excited to finally have event on android, i am so ready. thank you!! :D

This is a collection event, so every day a new reward will be unlocked and collected through a different task on your farm. There will, of course, be a bunch of goals and requirements to meet along the way...including collecting such and such a number of rewards in order to complete another goal. On the one hand, this event will be a lot easier than the previous one. On the other hand, sometimes the drop rate of rewards can be very low. Also, in the end, assuming you can collect one of each reward item, turning in one collection does not automatically guarantee winning the grand prize...but turning in more than one collection can mean receiving more than one of them.

I havent done one of these in ages. But I was tending to my farm when this started and had some deliveries ready to be sent off, so im off to a good start.

Im now deciding if I should use my 100 gems I won for the valentine terrier or for the machine to make other parts.

The animals are too small lately.. besides the unicorns that is. Honestly, sometimes the animals are cute but with them looking so tiny it takes away the reward to look at. Really! Please farm Story2 mod designers please make these animals a better size. I k ow lots of older people play this game and I am always hearing complaints about these animals. It's true. But I love the game!!

More like the polar cub event. I'll start hoarding picks and shovels, collecting wool, and making tons of flour. And hoping my maple trees give me syrup instead of leaves for the bed and breakfast. Also hoping my barn and silo hold it all. Good luck everyone

I have hoarded mining gear and now will hoard fishing gear and cotton...will let you all know how it goes. Thank goodness for those of us that get the bear, we can put him in a new home or add to one we have! 3 allowed

I don't understand this event! Will someone please help, I have a couple of questions..
1) Do we wait until each day unlocks? Or is it unlocked when we collect what we need? It's after 10 am Pacific time and day2 is still locked.
2) Do we have to have the tunnel of love? I don't have gems to buy it. If we don't have the tunnel of love will the barn be full of event stuff until the game is over?
Thank you! 💗

Thank you! ��

The new day unlocks at 5:30 pm eastern daylight savings time.
Today at that time you will be able to collect from the pigs so make sure they are ready and that you have food to feed them after you collect.
The items for collections go in the collections gallery.
Click on the heart there and you will see what you have collected ....they don't affect your barn.
No you do not have to buy the tunnel of love.
The tunnel of love can be a help....say you have trouble collecting the item from the fish pond on day nine.
You could use two of the item from the day before and make that item.
It also enables players to turn in collections early because you can make items that are still locked.
On page one post two I put where you will collect when that day becomes unlocked.

There will also be some goals ... only one has been released so far perhaps today.
Always check post two for the goals.
You cannot turn in a collection until the end of ten days and we are only starting day two so just hang in there and send planes for the day 1 item and pigs at 5:30 pm eastern daylight savings time or about four hours from time of this post.

As an older person, I had to laugh at this. Larger animals might help. I can no longer play this on my phone and my tablets get bigger every upgrade.

Do we need to unlock all the buildings / areas in order to finish the event?

Hi,

Do we need to unlock all the buildings / areas in order to finish the event?

Technically, no. You can buy the Tunnel of Love event boost (with gems) and it will allow you to convert 2 of one collection item into 1 of the next level collection item for increasing amounts of time (see the 2nd post of this thread).

While that might work in the short term, it might be easier (if you have the necessary expansion parts and/or enough coins) to unlock the Fishing Pond and the Mine, and buy (if you haven't already) the Bakery, the Bed and Breakfast, the Studio, and the Chocolatier.

It is up to you to decide which way will work better for you, and how much you are willing to spend.

Why, when I have 9 gifts already, most from deliveries, is only 1 showing in the new first goal, which says get 10 gifts. Why do we need 10 gifts, to make us do delivery after delivery again...when we will need to craft and collect other items?Is there any point to it? We can't share them with other players either.

The prize is a pet bear!
This is a luck based event so you want to be able to turn in as many collections as possible to increase your odds.
At the end of day ten you will start turning in your collections ( like a butterfly collection)
There are random prizes ...from the picture looks like a stuffed teddy bear, perhaps a shrub with some hearts on it etc.
We don't know how many prizes there are in the gallery until players start turning in collections.
BUT a pet Valentine's bear is one of the prizes so I will try to have as many collections as possible.
Some players will be lucky and get the pet on their first turn in ...others will take several collections.

According to the pictures in the first post that Regina so kindly posted for us there are also a set of Cupid skins for the cows, chickens, sheep and pigs. These are won by completing a set of goals that you will find in post two on page one.
These goals are released every couple of days. You do have to complete each goal to get the next goal to appear.
Day two goal is get ten prizes from deliveries. It starts then and does not count your previous plane delivery gifts.

I am basing my information on previous events and from the clues in the pictures in post number one.
We don't know if the pet bear is available as a prize in the goals as well.

So players can choose to do all parts of the event ...your choice.

I love the Cupid skins so will try to do the goals but also try to get as many collections as possible for the collections gallery.

The labor of love quest completed when I turned in a mole collection.

A show pony showed up 50% off in the market (it's still $40)

My pigs are very generous but my plane has decided not to be. I'll assume the tunnel of love doesn't work in reverse and hope quest 1/6 isn't an indication of things to come.

02-04-17, 08:13 AM
My gift drop rate was outstanding, until I got the tunnel of love, that is. I have not received a single gift since I placed that on my farm. I was wondering if I'm just the lucky one or if this is happening to others that have the tunnel of love. I find it kind of funny that as soon as I placed this on my farm the gifts from deliveries simply came to a halt. I can't make the gifts so I am basically stuck until they start dropping again. Good luck to everyone.

came to say THANK YOU that goal 1 is collect 10 gifts, not give 10 gifts. last time, i could not do those goals because i was getting so few drops from the plane that giving would have left me a very few collections to turn in. looks like collect, not give, will allow us to have those presents to complete collections or send thru the tunnel of love. thank you s8!!

You make whatever you want...I suggest bread it is the shortest then you collect the bread hoping for an event item....a valentine cookie which you will find in the collection gallery under the heart tab.

Not the kitchen...it is in the bakery.

Heads up to new players you are able to give the bacon and bread as you collect by hitting the give button you don't have to find storage for 60 bacon and 60 bread.

Another ripoff event. It is the third day and after getting 1 gift each on my first two deliveries, I have only gotten 1 since. And since the first goal is to collect 4 gifts, I cannot continue forward. I must have made 35-40 deliveries and stuck. I hate these luck events, I have not been able to complete one yet.

You will get cookies when you collect from the bakery. Those cookies will count toward your collection that you can turn in at the end. They will not count for quest 2/6 where you have to collect 20 cookies and 20 bracelets.
I'm in a similar situation to ladyfencer. When I need the items, they quit dropping as easy. My pigs that were so generous yesterday have all of a sudden gotten greedy with the bracelets. They probably want little dresses or something:o So far, so good with the cookies. With luck my plane will start giving gifts again since I'm through with the quest.

All the animals are sneaky like that. It started with the chickens a few events ago. Try telling the pigs they will get a special Valentine's Day outfit. Maybe that will improve their attitudes.

I got three or four bracelets this morning and two cookies!

If it is any consolation, these events usually start and end when I'm at work (I'm 5-6 hours behind, so it is 11:30 a.m. here when they start at 5:30 ET), so I lose a quarter day before I can get home to start playing, and I lose about half a day sleeping and working when they end. Usually, though, I'm able to make up the difference by playing a lot on the weekends.

MiriellaBella
02-06-17, 02:52 PM
4 batches of cookies, 3 bread and a lemon pie, and NO valentine cookies received! None!?! None! Really? A bit hard to progress that way isn't it.
Is it punishment for not buying the tunnel of love and only buying one bonus pack, instead of two, to see doing the quest without those purchases could be done? It's a bit ironic that the pop-up to rate the game and leave a nice comment keeps appearing. I guess the left hand of Storm doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
Oh well. C'est la vie.

My chickens want to know why they are giving eggs for the pigs to get outfits. Apparently in protest, the eight are giving few bags.

I've used up most of my syrup collecting wreaths, just because I could. I'm not sure Ill be able to make the pancakes for the new quest I haven't gotten to yet. My trees have stopped giving syrup and only leaves.

It can't be punishment for not purchasing tunnel of love. I have that, and it's not improving anything.

I use the pancakes I made and make the bacon ones they use maple leaves but you are right now you need 20 bottles of syrup for the get 20 Valentine Wreaths
Correction any item you make you can collect Valentine Wreaths so I am making bacon pancakes using maple leaves instead.

I had saved a bunch of pancakes thinking we would be giving them in the next goal.

So wait. I gave all the bacon, that's done. I'm giving bread. Buying some to complete. That is separate from collecting from the bakery to get cookies, right? So, if I collect bakery cookies AND use the bread collected for my give goal, does it count today for both goals?

The giving of bacon and bread are separate from the collecting of bracelets and cookies. You could buy all the bacon and the bread and give those, but you would still need to collect your own bacon and craft your own bread in order to get the bracelets and the cookies.

Actually, these goals are beneficial: in the effort to collect the bracelets and cookies, we are actually potentially fulfilling the other goals of getting enough bacon and bread to give.


And should I not make anything in my bed and breakfast until that goal pops up? This is my first event, I'm really confused.

Well, you CAN start crafting pancakes, because you need 30 of them, but any wreaths you receive from those pancakes you collect before that goal becomes active will not count.

Given that the goals asked for 30-50 items (bacon, bread, pancakes, etc.), it's possible to get the cookies and wreaths you need by crafting them all. It takes time, yes...but in crafting all of those items, eventually you'll collect what you need, and you can always just "give" what you craft right away to the goal to keep space open in your barn.

Anyone else notice that once the "Get Valentine Cookies (x20)" started in the "Be My Valentine (2/6)" event that the cookie drop rate in the Bakery has dried up !!!??? 1 cookie for last 21 breads !!! Had eleven before it started, approx 1 for each 3 breads ... SMH ...

... and only occasional heart boxes from my plane deliveries ...

If you look at the bottom of the "Give Bread" entry, there should be a "Scroll Down". Drag the list up and you will see that there is a 4th step to be met before you can complete the whole goal. In the case of 2/6, the 4th goal is to collect 20 cookies (received from the Bakery).

Unless otherwise stated, the awards for the goals are going to be skins and experience (maybe coins, not sure). The awards for turning in collections are different. One of the prizes is a new pet, but there are likely to be other decorations offered as prizes too. There is no guarantee that your first collection will earn you the pet...some players turn in many collections and never get the pet, while others might turn in only one and get the pet on the first try...and others will turn in many and get several of the same pet.

Yes I noticed very much so!!! I almost feel like giving up when this happens.

I got 6 presents from airplane deliveries during the first 2 days and since then not a single present.

But complaining is pointless. It has been like this since day one event one. You can check past events and see that this is the most common complaint. They turn off/down and on/up the drop rate as they please.

Every new goal I am a day or two behind, a) it starts at UK bedtime so naturally I am sleeping, while others still have daytime, then I'm behind before I even have chance to start, and b) for example now, my B&B isn't dropping wreaths and I still need them for the goal, I refuse to pay anymore real money out on this game, but feel this event is forcing people to pay out for the tunnel of love. This game really needs to be made more enjoyable, I may be quitting soon as I'm finding it too annoying and stressful which is a shame because it is a great time, the makers are getting greedy and will lose players x

And still haven't collected enough cookies to proceed to the next goal. If all goals take this long it will be impossible to even get close to finishing. My bakery is literally working non stop. I've tried all the different goods to see if longer crafts yield better results but that doesn't seem to be the case. Gone back to baking bread, so far the last 36 bread gave 1 cookie.

Anyone else experiencing such a dramatic decrease in collectible drops? All my other collectibles drop just fine got almost 100 bracelets from the pigs for example.

My question is do we have to have the mine open in order to complete the event? I am only a lvl 27 and worked first to open railroad. I have sent plane after plane trying to get expansion parts, but it seems I only get the gift boxes (if I get anything at all). Was trying to open the mine just in case I needed it.

And, I've bought extra pigs and chickens just to complete event so if I need mine, will be disappointed 🙁

The mine is needed on day ten for an event item.

Your options are:
You need to open the mine ...go to the buy/sell thread and post what you need but it takes time to open and repair so needs to be done quickly.
Second option is you would have to buy the Tunnel of Love where you would be able to craft the mine event item with event items from previous days.
Third option in order to turn in a collection you would have to purchase the missing mine event item with gems.

I just checked by trying to turn in a collection and with two days missing cost is 34 gems so I am assuming missing one would cost 17 gems.
This could get costly because it is a luck event .....right now I know of ten prizes thanks to Mamatampa and some neighbours who have purchased the Tunnel of Love. Meaning a one out of ten chance for the bear ....

i advise you not to touch your gems ever. save up until you have a show pony or two. unless you have maximum number of show ponies, you may having fun with all your gems. :o cheers


Ive never wanted to purchase a show pony. Not wanting to throw so manu gems at a pet. And this from someone with over 30 gem animals!

I now wish I hadnt used them. And that id read this page some more because I saw we needed 2 of each part to make 1 new one. Which ive never seen before. 160 gems down the drain because Im not collecting enough to make as many additional pieces as id like.

Never, ever again! Ill chalk this up as not playing an event like this in a few months. I also saw we need 2 of each to turn in a collection. Id just as well would have been better off using those 160 gems in case I dont win the puppy.

Ill save them up again and maybe get a small gem package to replenish them. Should have gotten the puppy....

I click a pig, and it offers the cupid skin sitting in my cellar for 30 gems. Huh? I go thru all that collecting and giving just for the privilege of BUYING a pig skin for 30 gems?!

Wait, are catfish a goal item? I'm still on goal 4/6, so if catfish are a goal for 5 or 6,ill hoard those. I just need to expand so I can get rid of the papers I'm hoarding, but I'm level 24 so waiting till 25 so I can use them specifically on the train. Like 2000 stars left, Oy! My point being I'm running Ning out of room in my barn and need 2 screws to upgrade.

Depending on what you're able to craft, I find that making candles is one good way to open up space in my barn and silo; butter is also a good one to craft (candles and butter both use up 4 items from the barn).

I've been making and hoarding dough bait since day 1. I was able to get 28 necklaces and all of my catfish. I don't know if the golden lures will give more but, there are still many days left.

I made dough balls from day one and bought lures I saw in the newspaper. Total of 110 lures, got 76 necklaces. Golden lure got 14. Wish we could share in the market, I will never need that many. That is more success than I've ever had!!

The Cupid Pig skin? Odd, I had no gem total showing underneath it. You should just be able to drag it out of your cellar and change one of your pigs' skins, without any loss of coins or gems.

I do have two pig skins that have gem amounts underneath them, but those are ones that I don't have that I would need to buy from the Market first.

I apogee if this has been asked and answered. I completed the 3/6 goals, and there's a pig skin in my cellar. But when I try to apply it, it says "uh oh," and won't apply. I click a pig, and it offers the cupid skin sitting in my cellar for 30 gems. Huh? I go thru all that collecting and giving just for the privilege of BUYING a pig skin for 30 gems?! Is that right, or am I doing g something wrong?
This happened to me in previous events. I am an Android player. To fix this I turn my device off and restart. I can then apply the skin after tapping on the relevant pen and applying the skin from the paint bucket. Hope it works for you too.

I had thought about which building to buy next . It's not available to me yet, but do candles sell well? I also thought about the juicer at this point. If candles sell well, maybe I'll do that.

Are you sure you are in your cellar and not under the pen where you switch skins? It has to be moved out first. Otherwise. Makes no sense, nothing in cellars cost money. Once it is out of the cellar, it will be in the edit screen if you ever change it again.

Not to mentioned recycled content. Just started turning in collections. I really need 15 Valentine's balloons? 8 Picnics?

For all the time, money, and effort we put into these events the least they could do is design some new decorations.

Again, no way to finish the quests. I have baked over 130 breads and still only 17 cookies. My plans are to ignore the quests and just turn in collections. I know I will not win the bear, but I hate to just waste the colection items I have amassed while doing deliveries.

02-11-17, 03:45 PM
I guess i've been pretty lucky because I've found this event really enjoyable.

It was great that we knew in advance where each days collection items would be so we could plan ahead.

The goals have been good too ... normally we have to give so many of each collection item but this time have only had to collect them meaning we have more collections to turn in & therefore more chances to win the bear.

Being able to use dough bait to catch the necklaces rather than having to make a special bait made things simpler too. I used about 25 dough bait & got 12 necklaces from those & 14 from a golden lure when looking for salmon.

Yes, getting the collection item from the bakery was slow going but luckily bread is only 15 mins so it was doable. I also found my chickens were reluctant to drop the gift bags but again they have a pretty short refresh so it wasn't terrible.

I've just used 21 mining tools & got 9 rings from those. So off i went to try my luck ... got my bear on the 4th try so i'm going to bed pretty happy right now.

I haven't used any gems for this event & for me it has not been a stressful event like some of them can be. So thank you S8 for taking some of our comments on board from previous events like this. Also a big thank you to those who take the time to update & contribute to the first page with goals etc & to the moderators. Your help, information & advice is much appreciated.
I hope things improve for those of you having trouble getting what you need & that you are able to win the bear. Good luck :)

Very disappointed that 5 of the decorations were the same as last years though...I now have 17 stacks of presents and 9 giant bears for example. Very lazy and sloppy of storm8 in my opinion. If you're gonna make it this hard to hand in collections and then even harder to get the prize everyone really wants. You could at last put in the effort of making the decorations new.

I'm glad U've had such great success! So would u agree that I should not turn in any collections until I'm done fishing and mining, which I'm waiting g to do until 4/6 is complete? Or should I turn in what I have now? I have lots of everything except the ring, I only have 5 {cuz I caved and mined a little). I only have 4 shovels left and no pickaxes. And no tunnel. So wait to turn in till I fish/mine, or turn I what I have now?

I also turned mine in as I went. When I got a couple of rings I turned in the collections. I still have to complete the goals. Waiting on roses from my sheep, who are being rather uncooperative. But since I have the bear, it doesn't matter. With a few days left, I should be able to finish. (I hope the sheep didn't take that as a challenge.)

My thoughts exactly. I have a bunch of balloons, bears, picnics, etc. It's bad enough to get the same prizes repeatedly in the event, especially if you don't get the main prize. It's really irritating to get the same as the previous year. Y'all have had a whole year to design new prizes.

Hi all,

To apply the skins for animals is a bit different for Android as for iOS players.
On my Android, the skins stays in my cellar. I can apply them threw pressing on the animal pen -> click on the paint bucket -> apply the skin u like. Still the skins will show in ur cellar. Choosing the skin threw ur cellar by sliding it, doesn't work. For iOS this last one will work and it will disappear from ur cellar.
Also saw that with my iOS I can't see the Valentine skins on Android farms...

S8: Thanks again, for this event. Also this was a relaxing one. Drop rate in Mining very nice.
Also glad to see we didn't had to handover Collection items at the goals but only had to Get/Find them to be counted.
Love the purple with blue twinkles colors of the swan pond.

Perhaps S8 can take this info and apply it into the next Collection Event: those who are lowered leveled and haven't unlocked more pens, to get a lower Get/Find amount then those, who have unlocked more pens? :)

I finished goal 5/6--had needed one more rose bouquet. On 6/6 I had the rocks on hand after mining for rings to turn in collections. I went to the mine to find another ring for the goal, and when I tapped in the mine, I got a message that the goal was completed. So I guess it somehow counted what I had done already. That was quite the surprise.

The sheep refused to wear the cupid skins, though. Said they did not want to look like chickens. They opted for pink sweaters instead.

Yep, I think I can confirm that it is about impossible for me to make this goal, for this reason. I just harvested my sheep, zero drops. They dropped at least 2 or 3 every harvest before the goal became avail. So I'll have to live on my device at all hours when the sheep are ready and hope all 4 give me drops in order to make it before the end of the event. I got all others done, which is too bad, that's alot of catfish I could have sold. So... No cow skins for me. Oh well. Still had fun, and now I know what I'm doing for next event. Will keep trying for the bear but I'm out of mining tools. Wish we could sell our collections. I'd buy rings.

And ur description of android skins s is 100%. Didn't know u can't see them on android neighbor farms! Doh!

The studio wasn't producing for me in this game... just worked up enough for five collections. Turned in my first collection and got the bear. I'm not usually that lucky with this game and I don't get into the Valentines games, but do it for the challenge.

Getting the animal early happened one other time for me: when I got the "Hot Dog" as my first pet. He will always have a place on my farm even if he does have a bun for a body; no storage cellar for him!

You can spend 20 gems to complete the collection. Expensive price to pay since you're unlikely to get the pet on the first try. Expand to your mine soon since the mine is involved in most events. You'll also need lumber and stuff to fix the mine once you get there. Read the game guides for more information.

actually, i had 7 of these prizes already. the only new prizes were the bear pet, the romantic bench and the swan pond. those Valentine mailboxes, i believe, are from a previous event, but were single use and disappeared. i saved the red one. ( i could be mistaken on the pink one. it looks very similar to the previous one, perhaps it is slightly different). i too am disappointed we didn't get more new content.

I've been where you are, and I don't like completely luck-based events either. I rarely ever get the main prize. Case in point, I still haven't gotten a gold cowbell despite over 40 deliveries. Different goal, yes, but same outcome. Can't get what I need and am frustrated.

I agree with you Ladyfencer, I have no luck in winning prizes either. I also have never won a gold cowbell, even with having enough items stockpiled to finish and deliver in less than a minute (I tried this wondering if level of cowbell was time-based).
I keep saying I will never participate in one of these events again, but after collecting a few items while doing normal deliveries and harvesting, it seems like a waste not to try, even though I know S8 is not going to allow me to finish an event. (Case in point, it took me the first 10 days to get enough gift packages to finish quest1/6 and over175 breads to get the 20 cookies. But at least I made money selling bread, lol)

Got my bear yesterday happily, but hoping for the swan pond. Mined today and got two rings but when I went to collections, they were not there! What do I do? The shovel and pick count shows that I used them... Rebooted but no rings still.

Happy to hear that you got your bear and sorry about your missing rings. I've replied to your pm and bug post.

Can you restart your game and see if the upgrade option is still there? Are you able to store your tunnel?
