If we play a lot and turn over a lot of boats, we should get at least three small boats with 2 or 3 gems each (occasionally even 5) plus 3 in a treasure chest plus 3-5 from the Giving Tree each day. They go fast when we start buying eternal trees, though, even faster if we want to indulge in buying boat parts.

I also currently get a lot of gems from diving and dive helping, and I wonder what will happen to those. If we will get only dive currency from diving and helping, then that is a big reduction in the rate the gems will accumulate, unless gems are among the items for sale in the new diving store. Hopefully, they will at least continue to toss out the unlisted bonus gems, anyway.

It would be nice if one of the first shipyard items offered is a new dive flag mast topper or decor. That way players without a ton of friends could outfit their boats and sail them around to let potential helpers know. The beauty of that approach is that if we visit and find the dive finished, it won't be PB's fault! We can only grumble about the players not updating their boats. (I think we would need to cut players some slack, though, for dives ending in the middle of the night or during the work day.)

Beth, if they offered a "dive sail topper" I for one would NOT put it on. too much for me to bother with and having to remember to change it constantly. but it would be nice if the new dives have updated indicators to let us know, say, in WM which sellers are diving and which are full so we don't go to them :D

I apologize if my previous posts came off as negative. I figured it went without saying that this new feature is pretty cool and much desired. It’s just disheartening that whenever some ‘cool’ new feature final becomes available (Eternal Trees, Kibble Cafes, Year Pets, Seasonal Seals Otters Turtles Moles ) they want real world money.

I just wish they’d at least give us the option of using the “In Game” money we’ve worked so long to acquire?!

I'm still waiting for the buy gems with coins feature. Hey, it works the other way around, why not both ways?

Seals to by earned with gems or coins ?? no information for the moment.

Have fun :D


This sounds awesome! I really would like to see new prizes please. No more volcanic geysers or fish fountain please. I'd rather get map pieces than the little decorations I have a ton. I have a ton of map pcs too but I can use them for coins or pet stickers. I know the newer players love the the older decorations so I don't wish for them to disappear but maybe give us choices. Trademasters over so many levels get 1 item and the newer trademasters get another item.

Anyway, thanks for the great news. Can't wait to meet the new seals!

How do you trade map pieces for coins or pet stickers?

Eli, you can afford to have that attitude since your dives are always full of helpers.

A lot players don't have that luxury and would appreciate another way to attract helpers.

Sure, it would be even better if the game could automatically generate the dive anchor on avatars on boats and/or the WM, but the dive anchors work so unreliably even in the friend bar, I suspect it would cripple the game to try to add it even more places.

you can sell them on WM for coin or trade them up at Carl's and go on an adventure with the Commodore for pet stickers :D

well Bitt, My dives are NOT always full, quite often i'm diving alone. but I do still keep an eye out for your dives to make sure i help yours out when ever i can :)

I just couldn't be bothered to have to "remember" to put the topper on and then "remember" to take it off when the event is over or have to "remember" to remove it if my dive is full for fear someone will be "offended" that I have it on irresponsibly. If I have a three hour dive, I will go and do something else in real life and to have to feel tied to the game to ensure "game etiquette" is too much, imo. if other care to use it, if it is available, that is their choice but it is too much for me to have to "remember".
