How to be a good Valentines Neighbor?
and now in someone's town I saw a card over the Simpsons' house, but didn't see when when I waited for it to reload in someone else's town. Are the cards possibly related to the quests the people who belong to the buildings are on?
This discussion has been closed.
May I ask a quick question....I have received hearts from friends as their name comes up when you hit your card, but I am still not able to access their towns? I know they have the update because they have gifted me with a card and heart, any ideas??
I am SHOCKED how many forum regulars and level 25/26 neighbors with nice towns and premium content don't play often enough for me to tap cards in their towns! I collected before bed and as soon as I woke up... still had a few characters without a valentine so my neighbors were able to tap cards in my town all night.
So I'm not sure how that works.
When visiting neighbors' Springfields -
- the option to "give" a VCard will only appear over characters who are CURRENTLY doing tasks. If the character is doing a task inside a building, then the vCard will appear over that building, but the building itself has nothing to do with vcards.
- when GIVING vcards, you will get money and XP every time, just like when you "tap" on a non-holiday springfield building, however, whether or not you receive hearts is random.
When others visit YOUR Springfield -
- only characters that are CURRENTLY doing tasks at the time of their visit will give them (the visitor) the option to "give" you a vCard.
- when you have received a vCard, it will always give you a heart (but no money or XP). When you tap the heart to pick it up, it will even tell you who gave it to you.
In order to be a "good" neighbor, try to consistently have your characters on tasks.
I have not had a chance to test this next one out yet, but I've heard from others, (as well as it makes sense, considering received vcards will tell you who gave them to you) that the same character cannot be given a vCard twice, even if they are currently tasking, unless the town owner "receives" it by tapping on it. Therefore, another way to be a "good" neighbor would be to check your town often and tap those received hearts to allow others to have more options. This is especially important for those who either have a large number of neighbors actively visiting their Springfields, and for those of you who may just be starting out in the game and don't have a lot of characters to choose from yet.
Hope this helps!
Those people have not been "Fixed" by origins yet. As soon as origins "Fixes" their accounts you will be able to access their towns.
Or two different neighbors have visited your town at the exact time and clicked on the same person before leaving.
If you re currently in the habit of checking your T.O. First thing in the morning, try switching it to afternoon or evening to increase the chances of your neighbors' characters being on tasks, and thus, available to receive your vcards.
Then I'm the best neighbor of them all as I have everyone doing something all the time. That's right people who are my neighbors you can thank me for wanting a constantly active town for the ability to send my guys lots and lots of Valentines.
Is this a bug or just that my neighbours are all still asleep and not playing?
This presumes everyone is in the same timezone, which is patently not the case. So unless you want to stay up all night tapping (and most of us have done nearly that sometimes!) then it's hard to say when your neighbors will visit and/or when they'll be setting characters to tasks.
That way I can help players who want to get valentine cards
Half my list isnt updated yet. And I have max friends
When an active character's building's "Valentine Card" is tapped, it goes away until the visited user collects the Valentine on their end. Only then will the "Valentine Card" be available to the next visitor.
To be a good neighbor, collect Valentine's from your characters ASAP. This will allow the next friend that visits to have more opportunities to tap Valentine's Cards in your city.
(edit to reflect changing information)
Yup, it seems the only consistent thing is people need to get in and collect their tasks. Players with more characters and who play often are going to be the most valuable friends to have in this update!
