I don't understand how on earth your suppose to keep your park operational if every single thing has a pathetic limit on it!!??!!

With all the crap your required to have out (rides/shops) and not even opened up like the beach and other sections... how in the hell are ya suppose to be able to keep up? I popped on this morning when I woke up and click click click to restart rides and collect money from shops so people can continue buying from them and all my energy was gone in seconds!

Only 30 energy sucks and by the time ya wait for it to recharge... your back to using them all up again with collecting from everything. Its like a vicious circle jerk going on. Then whats the bs with even a limit on how many Helps you can do? In FV2 I can visit all 300 of my neighbors, but in this game I havent counted but I only visit a couple handful of neighbors and it tells me I can't help anyone else today... REALLY? LIKE WTF!!!???

I wanna know how my neighbors that are level 40, 50 and 60 and have TONS of rides/shops can even enjoy playing if they can't even collect from a small portion each day cause of the 30 energy limit. Unless people are buying Energy Packs on a daily basis which is crazy.

Bruce, the recommendations are used to buy extra pieces of land. I can't get enough of them. Anyway, I'm at level 41 with only 6 neighbors that play and help me, but I rarely ever run out of energy. I pick and choose what I do with the energy, so that helps. Also, many of the rides or shops will gve more energy when you click on them, so I tend to have a max in my inventory to use at all times. I only play twice a day, and it seems to work fine for me (FV2 and Chefville keep me too busy). It's keeping up with all the quests that gets under my skin. For now, however, I love this game.

Can someone tell me what Recommendations are used for? Handed out a Park Pass and when the Recommendation went to be added it said I'm full... 60/60. How do I get rid of some?

Hmmm I only 2 FB friends who play... so I guess that means I need to start adding all these people that are in my Z-friends and request that to be FB friends as well?

It pretty much says it all in its name LOL. You download a toolbar to your chosen browser (firefox, chrome or IE I think). It's a toolbar, so obviously it sits on the top of the browser..anyways, you set it up with a few preferences, you can have it auto post that you collected it or even change the message to say what you want. There's a play button, you press it and it will open a new tab in your browser and scan your facebook feed for any posts you've asked it to select. It connects to FB through an app, you have to allow it permission to scan your feed and it'll pick up nearly everything almost as soon as people post it, ensuring you some of the best rewards..which includes a lot of free goods, coins and thrill points. I currently have more coins/TP/Goods than I can shake a stick at lol..and I turn it off at night! I couldn't imagine what it would be if I left it running 24/7. I only leave it running around 12 hours a day. Added to playing and ordering goods, boosting attractions and collecting from shops, I feel like I'm finally able to PLAY the game. I don't have to slow down for a day to regain a few goods. I have over 6000 goods right this moment. Until I added the snag bar, I would usually sit at 100 and have to wait a day or two to get the thousands needed for whatever. As I said too, I only play through the quests ...so I'm not building extra stuff using what I've been able to collect. If I ever run out of quests and am actually WAITING for new ones, then I might add some other stuff. I add deco stuff with coins, they're easier to come by though lol

P.S. Just in the few minutes typing this I collected 31 things off my feed with only 30ish people playing.

How exactly does this snag bar work? Does it grab them off the Exchange page on this site or does it look at FaceBook pages or what?

Picture?type=square

I am new to here, literally around 24 hours since I started the snagbar...holy DIFFERENCE! I managed to get my way to level 46 without it though, I just grind through the quests on the left and try to keep everything going as much as I could. always crafting, cooking, sewing. I found that the attractions, when needing a restart, often give at least 1 energy so it's like a free click, also that the stations (health, bathroom, lost and found) give out energy, so I click them all first and would find that I'd only used a couple energy..even though I had clicked 30+ things..at that point, I'd round up some coins so people could spend. I upgrade sometimes, but mostly when it's necessary by quest because it eliminates the strain on resources. Anyways, I started the snag bar last night, still logging in the same amount (2hrs) and again I say holy difference! I don't run out of energy because I can collect so many from the feed. I just logged in 10-15 minutes ago and I used all 30 energy which was just enough to get me a full refill for a level up and I was sitting with 25 energy still and nothing I needed to click! So I gathered supplies for the upcoming fact that I have toproduce 7 stupid animated dwarfs - I have all the gold I need from boosting, all the sewing kits and now I'm just waiting for the crafting station to be free from the jungle stuff to get on those...and even after gathering, I still have 13 energy...not a clue what to do with it right now. Guess I'll boost the winter ferris wheel and gather more thrill points 'cause I already have 300k+ coins from my method pre-snag bar. I don't use zynga.com either, it's slow and jerky...and I never got help! I get more help from the 30ish people on facebook than I do from zynga.com where it posts to EVERYONE. Also, I could NOT keep up with goods!! Now I'm mainting several thousand goods..but again, I'm not upgrading willy nilly, I do it because it says to.

@Cairn Knight: I keep adding as well but I assume there must be a limit of actual neighbors. I don't play every game that Zynga puts out but I know FV and FV2 both have a limit on how many neighbors you can have. And with the bug in neighbors not always showing the same amount I don't have a single clue how many neighbors I have at this point.

@Bruce Cross: I ONLY play on Zynga.com and add new "Z" friends every day...not on Facebook. So far I have over 1,000 playing as Z friends/neighbors so getting and keeping energy is so easy now, I can hardly use it all up before I get more. I get the 25 packs of energy for every (I forget how many) certain number of neighbors that accept the gifts I sent. ALl my 10, 5, 2 and 1 packs are filled too.

The thing that frustrates me the most with this game is the lack of energy & park cash. In most games, they give you an extra maximum energy per level so it helps keep up with the demand. Also, in games like Castleville, you get a crown (park cash, in a different name) for every level. I don't understand why they don't do that with this game. I have been out of park cash for quite some time now. Some of it was used accidentally and other times I used it because I was impatient on a quest. Anyways, I refuse to buy any and it is kind of stupid that you can't earn it for free even if it would be at a very slow rate like per level.

Yea for sure the game has some bugs. Looked in official forums and see a thread with pages and pages of the same complaints. Game is still enjoyable, but with the limitations already imposed and then add in the bugs it makes doing much of anything a real challenge.

I agree that we don't get enough energy to "open" all the rides.
Therefore I don't try.
I only open the utility s, and then the rides or stores that are required for the quests. I start and boost the rides nearby the shops that I need to collect from.

I don't worry about opening the whole park, and that's working fine for now. I am on level 52.... I wish I got 52 energy!!

See that is my problem. I rarely get any 10 pack of energy and I believe its because just like my own inbox... its backed up with tons of gifts that can't be accepted fast enough. And the main problem is that there is only one kind of gift to send.

In FV2 there are 6 different gifts and I never have a problem with sending or accepting an entire inbox full of stuff, where as with this game I hardly click on much and its telling me I reached my limit of mystery gifts. Thats why I figured I might do better with the 25 pack of energy for every 5 neighbors I add cause I typically get around 10 - 15 neighbors a day. But need to know the max amount of neighbors so that once I hit the max I can start deleting and re-adding to keep the flow of 25 packs coming in.

One simple solution, install the snagbar and you have (almost) random energy. And Zinga likes you to play a couple times per day...not once...You don't need to re-add your neighbors, just send them a free gift, with every 25 neighbors accept their gift you will get a pack of 10 energy and 1500 coins. You can visit 25 neighbors a day, so don't visit them all at once but spread it in 24 hour, 5 per time and a few hour later again 5. You can save energy to collect first all the restrooms, then restart your attractions(both give often extra energy), then collect all your business.

Good luck with this tips.

The pack of 25 energy... is that given when you add a neighbor to your park or something different? If its by adding neighbors... anyone know what the limit is? Cause what I was thinking was deleting all my neighbors and then re-adding them to get more 25 packs.

When you get extra energy you can find it in your inventory. There is a cap so make sure you use it to make room for more. :)

When you click certain stuff on other people's walls or help friends in their parks you can get energy. You can also ask friends for energy and/or buy more with park cash... Hope that helps. :)
