Summer Event 2019 feedback

So do I. The new stuff isn't all that interesting, though topping last year's ships is going to be tough. And a choice from a trio of decos on a gold space is a big letdown. The really good stuff are last year's prizes like ship upgrades and Sunken Treasures, and those are potentially available in the Dealer now. The rest of the wheel prizes are rather poor. And the compass one gets from spinning the wheel isn't as good as the map pieces from last year, because the map pieces as least gave more incentive to spin even when the prizes were poor.
I think 2% attack in a 2x1 space is pretty valuable.

Yes it isn’t worthless, actually pretty good. But it’s a grand prize. How many of them would you have to win to make a serious difference? To equal what buildings like the Pirate Ship give? How many doubloons will that cost?

More than what a small bit of attack bonus is worth in my opinion.

Here's my Summer Event feedback for today:

Level 5 Crow's Nest: 4 FPs daily production
+ 6 FPs random production
+ Blue Galaxy 2x bonus
----------------------------------
20 FPs.

:D

EDIT: I didn't actually pay attention to what the total was...would the BG double only the base 4 FPs or does it include the random production as well? Whatever, 14 or 20, either is pretty good, and the building is only at level 5.
 
If you're in a more advanced age I think doubloon incidents are rare simply because it's almost impossible to spot incidents within such a large city. I find around double the incidents on my off worlds that have much smaller cities compared to my main. I wish they'd do something to make city incidents more visible...some are literally hidden behind buildings.
Run a sweep with a large production or some other large building in building mode across your city. This will pick up all hidden incidents.
 
Looks likely I will get all level 8 crow’s nest in all of my seven cities without spending any diamonds. I swept my cities daily for the extra doubloons. The Blue Galaxy will help with the double collection in 4 of my cities. I think the Crow’s Nest is one of the best buildings so far even with the 5 x 5 footprint.

Well, 6 quests to go and if I manage a level 8 CN it will be by the skin of my teeth and only because I managed to find 3 doubloon incidents in my city, otherwise I wouldn't be getting it. I really hope the compass doesn't screw me and give me all 1's.
Again, I'm going to say up the chance of finding a doubloon incident a little.

Not just that, but it's a deco, so it's going to suck up aid.

My only real complaint is that, once again, the grand reward from the Event is a building that adds a very large number (at later Ages of course) of population, which often is about the last thing you need at later Ages.

If I swap out a Terrace Farm for a fully upgraded Crow's Nest in Arctic Future, I'm adding right around 6500 to my population (4880 from the CN plus the 1600 from storing the TF). I don't need the extra population, and I really have better uses for my limited space than to place more +Happiness buildings and better use for my limited FP production than to level my +Happiness GBs.

Could we PLEASE get reward buildings that don;t add population (or, if they do, add Happiness equal to the population boost)?

I'm mildly confused by this. My city has in excess 70k happiness and 30k population (Oceanic). It's mostly composed of event buildings. Neither of my happiness GBs are stratosphered. There might be some underlying problem that you need to fix? Or is this a common problem and am I an outlier?

I have 24K+ surplus pop in my city and have not had to worry about happiness. It’s all event buildings and GBs and the only happiness GB is a low-level FoD, so I’m pretty sure it tends to even out

Actually you're only adding 3280. You're adding 4880 for the CN, but you're subtracting the 1600 from the TF that you are removing.

I would think it's an underlying problem. My OF city has 22k+ excess Happiness with no cultural buildings or decorations, and my Happiness GBs are nowhere near hyper leveled.

Err, maybe it's a lack of sleep, but...

Before I build TF I have 36,423 pop. After I build TF I still have 36,423 pop. If I Store / delete the TF, I still have 36,423 pop.

All adding or removing TF does is change the available pop. Or is that sleep deprivation speaking?

Anyway, pretty sure that adding or removing TFs has no effect on Happiness since it has no effect on the total pop.

Must be sleep deprivation

It's one of the big reasons players are against down kits.

Nice one Agent. So the Terrace Farm uses population. It doesn't affect Total population, just Available Population. And Happiness is only affected by Total Population, not Available Population.

I spent a minute trying to understand your post, you seem to be telling me I'm wrong, but the link supports my point. Another one of your wild goose chases or did you miss the point?

Must be sleep deprevation.
Maybe you should get some sleep too then?

That's OK, you're in good company, SL and Mustapha are two other smart posters who made the same mistake. Although you perpetuated the mistake after it was pointed out.

Try not to do that, OK? We get enough of that from not so smart posters.

Meanwhile back on topic,

I don;t have a major problem with the pop thing on SBs, it's a boon to pre pop GB cities.

They (we) get to eliminate mundane Housing and get the huge benefit of sweet powerful SBs.

In my IA city I was able to dump 5 Cottages when I placed the CN, in essence getting the space for the CN for almostnothing. 8 FP costing me 5 tiles? I'm so in to that...
