23 Hour Day, Please

Okay, I don't mean really change the length of the day, but could we please have only 23 hours between neighbor clicks.

Once again, after wait for the time, I was going thru my whole neighbor list and once again I kept running into having to wait 10 seconds for the next neighbor to clear. If the time was 23 hours, it would stop the crawl of moving up the time to tap and it would allow for the variance among how long it takes to tap a neighbor.

Please consider it EA. Thanks

That would be great!

Or midnight to midnight, local time. Any time during Saturday, I can visit, then any time during Sunday, etc. (Eg, Saturday evening and then Sunday morning.) Just so long as it is only one visit to each neighbor per calendar day.

    I like it, but that would be a pretty big change in the game files. Doubt it happens.

    That's good idea, too. I would like that solution as well :)

    Definitely something I would like to see added to the game. Lately they seem to be adding think to make gameplay easier, like with the character finder and town census, so maybe in the future.

    They recently changed the length of No.1's task. I know it isn't quite the same, but shows they can alter times. Maybe if we just believe :wink:

    I think this might be easier for EA to do than the 23-hour time break. I'm all for it, too.

    I too have the creeping reset time for visiting friends. Events make it worse, what with the searching towns for something special.

    The best thing would be if they used Family Guy's 20 hour clock.

    The Family Guy game has 20 hour days between visits.

    yes that's the one I would like. Weekends I wake later and it really stuffs up my visiting.

    Following the Family guy rules :twisted: You see that wall in front of you, introduce it to your head :P EA don't want to be seen to ripping of other games, to much pride.

    That's exactly the reason why I don't give 3 taps on each neighbor's town... You gotta wait for 24 hr before u can tap again.

    This is the drawback for those of u who try to be "nice guys" by giving every friends 3 taps each.

    If u still want to tap for vacant SC lodge to earn 5 emblems, u must always keep at least 1 tap remaining in each town.

    As I said before, and I'm saying it again: Don't blame me for being selfish, blame the game designer!

    I'd be happy with any of these suggestions...midnight reset (Local or GMT) or somewhere between 20-23 hours. My visiting start time has been creeping later and later (thanks to falling asleep early one evening), I visited around 4am a few times and now my times are all over the place.

    I would prefer a once a day reset, no preference as to the time zone.

    In case you didn't know, your 24 hour timer starts as soon as you make that first tap. So, one tap or three, it is all the same timeframe.

    I would love to see a 23 hour visitors clock. The 24 hour clock pushes the visit time back so that I end up missing a visit about once every 10 days. I would like to have the extra hour to keep my visit time at about the same time every day.

    20-23 hour reset would be awesome. I love the 20 hour reset in family Guy. It makes it SO EASY to visit every day, around the same time. I have a limited window in the evening to visit, and this 24 hour thing keeps putting my time back later and later. So, at most, I end up only visiting 5-6 times a week.

    i have to strongly agree!! the 20hrs that FGQFS has its wicked nice as it allows you to have much more control over the time.. the 24 hour thing makes it alwayssssss creeeeeep further ahead everyday, even by 30 secs if ur not careful
