Question-whiteQuestion: only collecting coins- no building material

Please_share
by Marsha Boles - Sep 29, 2014 Star_s21,755 views

Apparently I am locked out on bricks, hammers and wood. Only collecting coins last 3-4 badges (30-40 plays). How long will this continue? (Getting discouraged.) Can't buy building, finish 2 constructions or open new field. Need compasses to continue. Shoud have expected something screwy when got 2 compasses in one play. I do have a log where I collected glass, pearls, and terra cotta, but on this forum UnAg said prizes were random making my log useless. Sooo... you are going to say - keep playing. (Right?)
POST NOTE: Thanks UnAg ---
The universe has ears - 2 plays later got 1 terra cotta. (Old principle embodied that cursing actualy does help find you keys.) Still needing compasses!

Until you use some of the building material that you have. You probably have full amount in storage

Although I am way behind most of you, Chap 25, I am finding the building material coming fairly slow. The program seems to decide when it wants me to upgrade...I was in the process of building the Palace (long slow process), I began getting Glass, which could only be used on Watermill or Lighthouse (not totally upgraded). Once I reached a count of 12, I began getting Gold Bars, which will be used for Orrey. But I don't have the building material to suffice any. And the Pearls stopped coming after I reach 14 (still 6 to go for Palace upgrade). My compasses come and go. Now that I am getting close to 625 badges, I am getting more, since I can get more land.
Tried to be smart and some deco are just tiles, which can be sold without too much hurt. Haven't run into a prestige problem yet, but what I read, I just may. So trying to be smart on my building and adding deco.

i sell earlier deco that give low prestige per square, esp those taking up 4 spaces (eg dolphin take 4 space for 16 prestige), but keep in storage high prestige item since u would lost prestige for each deco u sold.
i still have few "clouded area" to b explored, im partly satisfied with the way my island are decorated. if i ran out of space before finishing the game, i would discard deco with low prestige per square. grass, road and fences would be the 1st to go

Thanks UnAg. Now have new battle plan. Guess I have been guilty of hoarding building material to upgrade and stingy buying decorations (because heard so much distress about running out of space).
PRIOR TO UPGRADES there was no Inventory for storage. Lacking space I sold decorations early in game. Do you have strong opinion on storage vs. selling decorations?

excerpt from PP wiki forum:
Q- Why does it take so long to get compasses? http://pearlsperil.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:6992 http://pearlsperil.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:6625
A-If you are getting a lot of coins instead of compasses and building material, you either have to add decorations or it's time to add another building. Check and see how many badges until you build the next building. If the next building is already open, earn enough coins to build it. If you need a lot more badges for the next building, buy a decoration.
A-Do you have a lot of buildings in various phases of being upgraded? This will delay getting compasses. Stop upgrading buildings and see if compasses start coming in.
A-Put in some decorations and stop building buildings until all your building supplies are replenished. Then you will get compasses. After you get them, you can start building again.
A-if your terracota, pearls, copper, glass, gold, and compasses are taking forever to get, check to see how many buildings you have being "upgraded." Stop upgrading, and those items should start appearing faster. Everytime you upgrade a building, it starts again with the wood, bricks, paint, etc. which delays getting the good things. Also, be careful adding in new buildings before doing a final upgrade on an old building. This will delay getting compasses.

i could b wrong, if ur log is true, u could share ur own experience here. i think it is random, thus i never keep a log where and when i could collect the items. unfortunately my internet is very slow at this moment, but i will try to find out more about the randomness of the item. mayb u could visit PP wiki or PP official page to find out more info.
