Worst event ever as far as I'm concerned. All I've got are the really ugly cottages and some awful bushes which all went straight to storage.
I got far behind at the start because the in game information stated that the sweet cream only came from alpacas. If they hadn't lied about this I would have upgraded the ugly mountain quicker and got better drops earlier. I hadn't bothered to look at the forum as it seemed pretty straightforward. You shouldn't need to check a forum for correct basic information.
