    Its a lovely addition to your squidport gsfairie....... pop to my town and have a look :D

    I amsure your eye for design will make it stunning :wink:

    Thanks Tiger :-) I've just finished a redesign, saved myself some spare land too so I'm happy at the moment!
    I've not designed my Squidport yet, waiting for all the tiles first!

    Just been to your town, helped your tile too!

    I might hold off on it for now, now I know it's not a limited item! Will wait until I have more donuts. :-)

    Question is though, is the Mayflower a ship or a boat?

    On the basis that you can put a boat on a ship but you can't put a ship on a boat.........it's a ship.
    For the guy that doesn't like the Union Flag may I point out that the Mayflower came from England with most of your ancestors (if you're American, whatever that is). It would have been much more strange had the developers put an American flag on a British ship. Even though Americans seem to love re-writing history that might have been a stretch too far.

    Seeing as I was born in Southampton (where the shipped sailed from) and live in Plymouth (where the ship docked for repairs and took on more passengers) I had to get this without any question.

    It's a nice ship but the union jack has put me off buying it.

    But the flag of Denmark doesn't bother you?

    I'm assuming its supposed to be the Danish flag even though its not correct. The cross should be somewhat to the left side, it sits off center not directly in the middle. Unless its supposed to be the Swiss flag, in which case its also incorrect. :roll:

    The Mayflower Carried the Union Jack and the English Flag (Saint George flag) EA has the colours reversed.

    You're absolutely correct. Also when the Mayflower existed, Ireland was not part of the Union and therefore the Cross of Saint Patrick did not exist on the Union Jack at the time. I guess EA decided to make a few changes to both flags.

    I personally like it still as it is something new to the water area!

    Nobody at EA has done research and quality testing clearly, otherwise they'd have easily picked up on such an error and make it right. Now it just looks slightly stupid on because they've made up some historical incaccuracies.

    Indeed ! Anyone can get one flag wrong.....but TWO. I guess EA will be apologising to the English, Irish and Danish. Or perhaps not :lol:

    As far as getting a pay-off, it's not.

    If you want to have everything for your Springfield then yes. Think of it as the Springfield sign of Squidport.

    ^ I never thought of it that way. It sort of is, isn't it?

    I bought it just to have another ship on the water. We had one whole boat for it. Doesn't seem complete without more boats. It was a little expensive though though, for a decoration. I was hoping it did something.

    The Mayflower is worth it if you want a cool looking ship in your Squidport, but there are definitely better values for donuts out there. However, I could not resist buying it and redesigning my port around it.

    Pseudonumon - pretty Squidport!

    I got the Mayflower. I think it looks great in the water and adds something special to Squidport.

    I would not normally purchase 100 donut object without a character behind it but the ship looks great on SP. I'm glad I bought it however the casino is another story. I don't like the look of it. I wish I never bought that.

    I have it, and do not regret the purchase. In the end, I will rather have a nice bulding or decoration in my SF, than i.e. the Cracker factory (I find that extremely boring, though I would like to have Luann). I have some donuts left, and I will have them on hold until christmas has arrived! :)
