Clever girl for starting the thread!! You're so much cleverer (is that a word?) than me!!

I'm level 33 now, have completed the first island and nearly completed the second one. The only advice I can give is learn to be PATIENT! Not my strong point I know! As you progress in the game everything takes so much longer to do, these developers really want you to spend real money. I confess that I did a couple of times in the early days just so I could move on a bit quicker!!

I've learnt to take it slower, make sure I've always got plenty of food growing, and have as many storage houses as you can afford!! It's all about the quantity you have saved, wood, lumber, stone, food, and then later in the game it's cut stone and marble. You really just need to follow the quests because you can't get anywhere until you have completed each quest, as certain things unlock once you've completed it.

I've waffled enough for now, if I think of anything else, I'll come back!!

Hey Jazbo, thanks for the post and advice
Haha, I just KNEW you wouldn't have been able to resist doing some spending....I confess to buying one lot of the cheapest priced gems, partly because one of the quests said that the pink stone would give me 30% more of any gem buy.....well it did not do so on the gems I got, so I may have to write to their support as this is very misleading.

One thing I did figure out was the dragon I hatched is great at destroying those fire burning enemies, so I hatched 3 x more

When first expanding, I didnt know about them and wondered what on earth was happening as my village was on fire!
Now I have been sitting waiting for them to strike when I got to expand.

I really want to expand my food storage, but need sawn wood...I think?
Can't unlock the wood mill thingy yet, so currently have 4 food stores.....hard to find room to put anymore on at the moment.
Also I went to move one of my Dragon habitats close to my wrecked plane and all of a sudden that got demolished!!!!
Do you still have your wrecked plane as it was able to be explored more than once? BOO HOO, not sure if that was supposed to stay there or not.

Can we visit other friends Islands by providing our game code to them?
I don't have a facebook account so will it only work through there?

I have been endevouring to slowly complete tasks....always hoping the developers are not going to get greedy and make them impossible to do unless one buys gems....

This app is really helping me through the DV dragon fails (DODO comes to mind)
as a starter......

Really hope other players will post on here too.

Thanks for telling me about this app Jazbo....hubby rolled his eyes and sighed...I am sure I saw him clench his jaw also

Edit....completely off the track here, but today hubby and I drove into the city's Harbour to watch the ship carrying our car from Germany arrive....it was ordered 10.5 mths ago (finally built in Feb).....so how's that for patience!
This is the other thing that's been consuming my time..,,tracking the ship from Port to Port since early March.

Default Oh no!!!

Surely You can't have demolished your plane, you need that for lots of future quests! I didnt know it was possible to demolish it??? You may need to start the game again?? PANIC!!!! You need to search the plane for lots of things to complete quests so I don't know how you could progress the game without it?

I've had a couple of issues with the game where I didn't get my gems when I purchased and also, I used 5 gems on the 'spirit of speed' which speeds up your building, but instead of lasting for 6 hours it lasted about 5 minutes!!! I emailed developers about it and they said it was a known fault and would be fixed ASAP. Haven't had my gems reinbursed though! Other than those issues it's worked quite well for me.

I don't think you can visit friends unless you have Facebook although that doesnt even work for me because I haven't been able to link mine, don't know why?

If you get your plane issue sorted and can progress then the best advice I can give is, save as much money as you can and expand!!!! The more buildings you have the more money you make and money is what you need!!! The expansions get more and more expensive and you need the space as quick as you can get to cram as many buildings on as you can, especially the Trading Post, Shaman Shop, Ancient Bar etc, as they all make you money!

Let me know how you get on!

By the way, have you seen the new spin off from pocket potions and sweet shop? It's called Dream Dresses. Exactly the same thing as the other 2 games but strangely compelling........... Another game to make your hubby roll his eyes!!

Very intrigued about your new car! What did you get?? What an extremely long wait, shows huge patience on your part!!

Oh nooooo, I need my plane back!!!
I got a real shock when it just disappeared and the only thing left was the small fire....I am now lvl 18 and the thought of starting all over again is not good.
I will have to email them....it's funny cause I couldn't move the plane, so that's just plain crazy....

I was so sick of PP & SS crashing all the time, I have deleted PP and not playing SS right now, kind of really bored with these two as same ol same ol....I better not get anymore of these types of apps or else I will have a mutiny on my hands.....

Car wait blew out cause of demand verses supply...WV Polo GTI little brother for our current VW Golf GTI, so not a Lamborghini or Ferrari (haha, I wish)....
Never again, truly over it....hopefully within next 2 weeks as has to clear customs, then compliance blah blah.
Tracking the ship has been so cool though

Oh no, doesn't sound good, I don't know how you'll get it back? I did see a note that said be careful with the demolish button........ I hope you get it sorted.

His and hers VW Golf! Very nice! And I wasn't thinking Ferrari or lamborghini, maybe BMW or Mercedes...... They're my dream car!!

Well, hello all
I'm currently at level 21. And your demolished airplanes sounds scary. I don't know how you're going to advance thru quests without it....unless there are alternative quests designed around it. Only the developers would know. But it does sound onimus.

As for strategy...maybe I should say tactics. When ever I open the game, first thing I do is wake up the dinos, before any enemies can attack. Plus keeping riders on them seems to up the level of defense speed. Plus the side benefit of earning good money.

Well hello back Deeneez.....your name sounds familiar LOL
Thanks for coming over to join us here too......

I am starting to feel a little panicked about this crashed plane......
In fact more than a little, I don't know really what to do except wait for an email back.....I have a really awful feeling I am going to have to start all over again and if so, I would rather do that now then keep advancing.....boo hoo

What sort of rewards are found from exploring the plane?
I still haven't been able to build my lumber mill cause of incomplete quests?
Is this something to do with the plane by any chance?
Finding I could do with lumber to upgrade a few things like food storehouses for example but I don't have any lumber.

Also can you both help me with the happiness level bar.......
How many plants, fires, cauldrons can one buy.....my Island seems to be littered with them but my happiness bar keeps evading me (can't keep up with it)
Any advice?

How many dinosaurs do you both have?
I may have got carried away with 4 and to think one of their lairs is somehow connected to my plane being demolished as I was placing them around it....GRR.

I did read we had to be very careful when demolishing and I have only used it to get rid of a few paths that were in the way....I know I didn't accident tally push that when moving my dinosaur lair cause it was already moving around the screen at the time...so the move button was in play....

Gues this serves as a warning to be very careful even when moving things around objects that are supposed to be there.

In my email I also mentioned that I didn't get the promised extra 30% value of gems....that was really misleading and I did say that.
We will see what happens.....in the meantime I may just collect money but not advance until I have an answer.

Do either of you know if I were to delete and reinstall it, would it keep my score in GC like DV does?

Wish we could visit each others Islands

You don't need to make any in-app purchases. By adjusting the time/date on your device you can 'jump-forward' thus avoiding the delay whilst a deal completes. I have reached 1000000 experience points in a few days but have found that the game doesn't proceed past level 35 so stalls at this point. Hopefully it is something the developers fix in the next update...
