Let's hear some theories or rumors about what the fix is going to be...

Ready! Set! Go!

I'm getting an image...of a dwarf with wings.  It's hard to make out...awfully cloudy.

A dwarf will place a postage stamp on himself and dance on a sack of coal.

As you all know, I always get to test the new stuff and have a lot of insider knowledge. Sadly, I can't tell you what's going to happen, but if I could tell you, I would probably mention railroads. Not that I ever would, of course.

Well, my island has run out of pigeons and is no longer useful for me to get around.  Any ETA on a fix for the birds or a suitable replacement?

There is little benefit in keeping the island for me if nothing is done.

I think we need hot air balloons.  Made from Imperial cloth, rope, and barrels.  Maybe a new bird could provide the hot air, or we could use more vocal forum posters for that. Wink

This is a very high priority issue for me still.   My island is broken and this needs to be fixed soon.  I'll be cancelling 2 subscriptions at the end of this week if there is no word on a fix.  I can't understand why this has gone on so long.

Angry,

What is astonishing to me is that TW is, presumably, making more money than ever and yet auctions and hitched island pigeons, both features that affect members only, are still borked.

I say bring back these features, bugs and all, and ban any exploiters. Fix the exploits and/or replace the features with better features *after* the better features are ingame and working as intended.

I am probably way oversimplifying the issues but when long time members have gotten used to features over the years, and made major base design choices around them like I have, then the features disappear without much reason/explanation I become anxious about not being able to defend my base effectively. Anxiety on the order of BVs suddenly not working because they will be replaced with something else in upcoming weeks/months when the admins get around to it.

Yeah for hangliders.  Also, mine was the best guess. Grin

I think mine was better.  I actually knew it was Hangliders, but didn't want to give it away.  Also you owe me 24500 strawberries, lilojo.

And, I think it sucks that you must subscribe in order to hanglide.  PP's are still no good on islands?

We were not given enough coins to get a hanglider and even a single landing station  We should at least start with our current coins plus enough to get one station to set up no??

Are you a subscriber?

The release of Hangliders™ has given CURRENT subscribers a good boost of coins..

yes.

I got 275 coins added to my total from what I can tell which gives me enough to buy the launcher but not a landing pad.

You can trade for coins, don't need a subscription.

Also, put things into perspective - a month or two from now, you'll have plenty of landing stations that will never be used up. Don't expect to get EVERYTHING at once.

Of course not, though when you lose EVERYTHING at once...well, it's such a bother to have no way to get back to my base in the case of death.  Also, a trade for coins can run pretty expensive.

It sounds like a neat system, but birds should be allowed until non-subscribers have a chance to catch up.

Birds still are allowed. You didn't use everything at once. You just can't dock NEW birds. All the old docked ones still work fine. Now stop bitching, you little girl.
