Is there going to be any auto harvesting?


At this point, I am not planning on doing any auto completion. But I will continue monitoring for the rest of the week and make a final decision after Sunday.

I would suggest to everyone to progress their sculptures as best as they can through Sunday.

I have no agents and I'm sculpting other peoples sculptures as well as my own, I would really love auto-harvest. It would help me so much

Im in kind of a bind myself ATM. *Nods* I have three unfinished sculptures (and quite a few unused catalysts), not a single one at even 50%, only two of the necessary Sculpting agents (minus the one I need to finish two of my three sculptures) & even then, only a few of those (like two or three of each), and absolutely zero tokens. Because Im saving up my gold to buy enough diamonds to purchase a new Stable, Im trying to spend as little of it as possible, so would rather not use it to buy more tokens and/or Sculpting Agents 8[.

So either and/or auto-progression & leaving the zone open for the entirety of the festival would be/would have been a huge help. Combine the (presumed) lack of the former of the two things I mentioned above with the semi-permanent (or seemingly so) reduction in the drop rate for Sculpting Agents & supplies, and the pet Sculpting activity has been made rather difficult for players like me 8[.

My issue is I have a Maj scupt I may be unable to finish since RNG refused to give me enough water vials.. I still have 15+ of the other ingredients and would be rather frustrated losing the Maj due to RNG.

Buying more doesnt seem like a pleasant option due to the price increase with the zone closing, and likelihood of not getting the agent I need.

If auto-complete isn't available this year, I would really suggest a trade-in feature for issues like this. 2-3 of one agent into the agent of your choosing.

I have to admit that I am beginning to feel other people's pain!

I dug/fished up a maj ligh on the beach yestetday and already had several fabled catalysts and a couple of regulars in boxes. In theory I had enough agents, including 12 unopened boxes, so I placed the ligh in a box and upgraded pearls to make a prismatic but now with 39 blocks of sand, 23 vials of seawater and only 11 essences of sun left it seems I may not even get the maj and fabled finished. RNG has just required me to use several suns on the sculptures I have. I have already spent 300 diamonds on a box of agents. I do have some tokens I could use for a few more but who knows if there will be enough suns?

Having spent 250k+ gold upgrading pearls for the maj ligh plus the 300 diamonds, plus the 1,800 tokens on the boxes for the other sculptures I am feeling a little disheartened. I have many, many pets from this festival and have had great fun hunting them and sculpting them but there is still a feeling of disappointment over these last few.

As one who exploited the auto-finishing to the full when it existed I do understand that you wanted to do something to prevent people throwing catalysts into boxes/pots/cauldrons at the last minute and then reaping the benefits. However, I also feel I planned quite carefully this time and may have ended up spending site currency on things which because of RNG will be wasted. I am sure that there are quite a few other people in a similar position. I can see that you don't want to make a decision until Sunday because people might start new sculptures based on that but in the meantime people like me have to decide whether to spend more diamonds, gold or tokens trying to get things completed. I really don't want to spend more diamonds and then you say, for example, that sculptures with a prismatic pearl will be auto-finished!

Sorry, Krin, to seem like I'm complaining - I have had a great time this fest and appreciate all you do to make this such a fun game (even that horrible hidden boss!).

I am using tokens to buy tools to do beach but i am getting clams and such that i really dont want at this stage xD Maybe the drop rates for clams, sap, gems, sand and clams could be lowered slightly in favor of agents? I am trying hard to poke everyone i care about but im running out as quickly as i can get them and beach resets every 8 hours....

Also if we could buy specific agents in the fest shop instead of gambling would be very nice. Or maybe the fest shop agents could be changed to a bundle <.< i miss the bundle the bundle was a good idea Krin

I went ahead and created a [Bundled Sand Sculpting Agents] item. It just awards one of each Agent instead of being random.

This item has both been added to the Festival Shop for 120 Sun Tokens as well as replaced the Agents from within the Box of Sculpting Agents - so that you now are guaranteed to get 4 of each instead of 12 random ones.

These changes will stay in effect for next year's Festival as well, assuming nothing else changes that'd affect them.


I most likely won't have an answer regarding any type of auto complete until after the Festival ends and I can see where everyone ended up. I obviously don't want people to feel like they wasted a bunch of effort, as well as I don't want to encourage people to just rely solely on auto complete. So it's a bit dilemma. I basically want players to put forth the effort, but I also don't want players to feel like the effort they ended up putting in was in vain. So I will just have to see where things end up and adjust from there if needed - and I won't have that information until after Sunday. So the best advice I can give is for players to just progress their sculptures as best as they can.

Additionally, there will be an Eggling Auction Sat-Sun. I will get the details posted sometime today.

ty ty ty Krin, the bundled agents are great :D I hope you do consider auto finish if they get to 92% at least. Some of our members have been hit with hurricane sally
