Daily Limit on Friends' Presents?

Prev1
Not sure myself. During my rounds of the neighborhoods this morning, the counter stopped after 40 presents. I continued tapping on additional presents in the remaining neighbors' towns, but the counter never went up.

    Yes.

    For the first bunch of friends visits you get two presents per friend action, than one, later none. Sorry, I can't say how many visits it takes - visiting neighbours has been a bit chaotic today, due to some having the update and other not. However, I've been through these three phases.

    After 142, no more presents for me

    Edit: I forgot the one neighbor visit i did last night, I hear that is 6 present for the 3 actions, that would add 18 to my total.

    So that 160 presents for visiting neighbors daily

    Do we receive presents from neighbours visiting us? Like FP points.

    Yep, as long as they've built the Toy Workshop in their town.

    Mine stopped at 15 presents. I was only getting 3 per town I went into. So after visiting 5 friends, the presents stopped adding up.

    Edit: Just collected presents from the Holiday Tree, Elf Home and Present Drop and my counter stayed at 15. So, it looks like it's not just in the friends towns it has stopped, but also in my own town.

    Didn't get presents from quite a few of my neighbors even though the presents graphic was present. I stopped getting presents at 20, which seems strange since it's not a multiple of 3.

    I also noticed that only some buildings had the presents graphics, some did not (eg. Tribal Huts, The Little Black Box).

    I hate that limitation, it doesn't make sense since we are allowed 100 friends...

    My workshop will be done building soon. Is that all that's needed to collect presents from friends or do Homer and Lisa have to do their task as well?

    Many times newer buildings don't work with events. That's it. Feels insufficient somehow, but it's all I've got.

    Once your workshop will be ready, you can start collecting from friends who have the workshop.

    Thanks :thumbup:
    My friends will be ready shortly as well. Didn't want to do them to soon.

    on first run through in main town I only got 3 present per town till it stopped. I later calculated that I only got presents from 38 towns. In town E, I got 2 presents per tap, but have way less neighbors.

    I hadn't visited my neighbors for several days (on purpose) so I went in fresh.

    Results: first 30 actions (10 neighbors) = 2 presents per action (total of 60 presents after 10 neighbors)

    Next 90 actions (30 neighbors) = 1 present per action (total of 90 presents for those 30 neighbors)

    Conclusion: max 150 presents per day from visiting friends. Only 40 neighbors needed. Do not click on last year's Christmas pole or elf house because you will not get presents, only money and it will count against your 120 actions.

    This makes sense and seems consistent in what others are finding out. Thanks! And I forgot I did not go in fresh. I tapped some towns before I updated so that's where my "2 presents" were used up except I got cash. The game counted them as present actions for the day.

    That stinks. The daily max is so low (150 presents) that visiting friends is barely worth it. We need 15,000 presents by Christmas Eve. Even visiting friends religiously is only going to get us 3,000 (or 20% of the way there). This may be the least friend-centric event yet.

    In my main account I maxed at 142, in my secondary I maxed at 140.

    Shrug.

    Do we know what the Feds bonus is or what they do yet? Maybe they makes more presents although I may have heard a rumor they pay out cash but they must do something else. I wonder if they take elves away from friends aka deport them? Then you get more presents for each elf you deport? Speculation only.
