Hypothetically speaking.  Suppose you use a landing pad to teleport to your island, and then someone picks up your landing pad.  You don't have a bird gate to port back to so would you be stuck on your island assuming you have no more landing pads?

Also, has anyone tried to find out what happens if you try to port to a landing pad that has been picked up or is that just not an option.

Ok i did some testing, and you WILL be stuck on your island if this happens Smiley

Also in the process of testing this i destroyed some grass on my island when using my island hawk on it without having a portal to return to.

(always keep a safe landing pad somewhere)

After stealing all of snowbird's coins and testing this out.  I just want to say, thanks Dragoon, this looks like a very nice addition.

Just a word of warning to all, you can destroy anything on your island if you forget that you don't have an island hawk portal out and use your island hawk while standing on something. 

Including hordes, trees, salad bowls etc Sad

That's always been the case if you loop your hawk.

I wasn't aware that there was a way to be on your island without having a corresponding portal any other way.

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.

You can always use an island hawk...

Yes, you can use an island hawk to go back to your island. Then you are on your island. You can use the hawk again, then you are back in the noob world. Island, noob world, island, noob world, back and forth. That's not going to get you to your base however, no matter how often you do it.
