I'm a first time poster, playing on an iPad1. My first 3 islands up and running without incident: meaning no missing airplanes, gems etc.
That said, I've not updated the game in forever -- choosing to ignore the chirpy "It's time to update!" pop-ups, with the idea of stockpiling funds and opening territories before the inevitable price hikes that seem to accompany every update.
As of this morning, Island of the Ancients was level 39, happiness 45, with only 2 open quests: (1) find 5/5 Clown Masks in Cave (stuck at 4/5); and (2) build 2 Households, upgrade 3 Households to level 4. Now, I discover that I can't start new tasks -- in the opened territories -- without getting an Aurora pop-up "Cannot reach. You'll need to clear the way." In other words, I click on any badge (i.e., a completed Hotel or Shaman Shop) and Aurora says "no go!".
I suppose it's time to update.
Although Marble and Mystery seem to be functioning normally, so I'm inclined to just "work" them to stock pile moolah. Suggestions?
And, yes I did try closing the game and resetting the iPad. No change.
But, one interesting thing, if left to their own devices the Tribzmen ... all 45 of them .. did congregate in a rather disconcerting manner Has this happened to anyone else?
