    Lightbulb New Idea for Collectables

    I would love it if the devs would create a tool that collects the collectables (a collectable picker?) that is like a permanent building (watermill, etc.). This item would roam the island and get ALL of the collectables and would replace the reveal tool that you have to buy over and over again. One of the most annoying things that I do twice a day is search for collectables so having something like this would solve that problem.

    Unfortunately with the somewhat recent creation of scenarios I am willing to bet that Blue Byte disagrees with your and my opinion of how funstrating, trademark SweaterPuppies Enterprises, finding collectibles is.

    In the mean time there are ways to make collectibles easier to find and even ways to control where collectibles drop.
    One army. Pretty please.

    Cut the trees and fill every spot with decorations save a small patch which is where all collectibles will appears... well there and inside of improved storehouses.



    It takes a minute or so for me to find them all. Would be less if they ever fix the storehouses, but I am fine with it.

    What I was actually thinking about is a blood hound explorer that works on your island ONLY. It would gather the collectables for you and you could enjoy watching it run around on your island. It's like buying any other explorer. I wasn't thinking of terms of it affecting anything other than your own island.

    There may be some merit in having a permanent collectible finder. There are two things that would have to be factored in though. First, as we have just learned about how our islands work when we are not online, it would not be possible for it to work when the player is off-line. It would likely have to be triggered, like an explorer search.

    Second, you would have to consider the cost of the specialist. Right now, it costs 7 gems for all of the collectibles to be flagged for you, using the fairy fire. Each use of a collectible-finding specialist would be similar to using an enhanced fairy fire - one that not just labels, but collects as well. If you used a fairy fire once a day, it would cost you 2,555 gems. If you used it for every collection, or three times a day, it would cost 7,665. A reasonable cost would be in-between, or somewhere around the cost of a veteran or master of martial arts general.

    +1 I like the idea, however, note that if you are on all (or most of) the day, and are on top of your collections, it is possible to get 3 collections. It used to be easier to get them in, but one (or more) of the constraints governing the drop windows must have changed.

    Like the design, though the cost of Fairy Fire is 9 gems per. The cost of said specialist appears to be within other specialist price ranges. I'd buy.

    "Have to" is a very strong wording...I'd say that the devs wouldn't HAVE TO make this explorer expensive. I'm hoping that they will take into consideration that this type of explorer is needed by ALL lvls of players. I suggested a blood hound explorer and yes I realize that you have to be logged on to launch this explorer just like all explorers. I'm good with that. I'm hoping that they will consider this idea seriously...maybe even have it ready to offer by the time foot ball starts.

    This doesn't work for lower lvl players...they need those woods to grow to cut for resources.

    How about just giving more uses for most of the collectibles? I mean the only collectible that's actually worth anything are the Banners.
