That was my first thought too. :lol:
Thanks Ely!
I do hope they will bring back grace period for starting dives. Seriously cannot do my dives at work :o
And hopefully maybe new rewards. I believe 15 sign posts and 5 fountains and so on should be enough.

They need to up the ante on the dives. My last one had a tiki torch as the final. Not as bad as a previous one that rewarded me with ——- EXPERIENCE!!! :evil:

They should add more pet treats and red dyes and stuff we really want. Same with boat trades. Some of the requests from Carl ask for the moon for a single scrap of paper.

Someone really needs to look at the entire reward matrix and even things out. But alas, I ain’t holding my breath. :lol:

Seems like a lot of trial and error going on.

Lot's of transitioning too.

Thanks for the update Ely.

I got that one last time. I did it anyway and it turned out to also give me some dyes and a bunch of gems.

In my second game, I have regularly been getting pet stickers, usually bronze but this time a tortoise.

I would like to see them move the figurehead from the Adventuring boat to dives. Right now the only way to get it is to do oodles and oodles of adventuring runs to get the hundreds of stickers needed to complete the dog. I was lucky and got mine before the dog, but anyone who hadn't yet finished the tortoise before the dog came out has a mountain to climb. IMO the Adventuring boat was a dumb place to put boat parts.

For last dive prize,I got a blooming flower.. their description not mine..
However, it was the MAJOR CHANGES that worry me..??
JustHope the major change is getting the anchors to work from the beginning, AND hopefully, to show anchors on boats in your island bay who are not friends.
I JustGot my whole zoo fed treats by someone I don’t know. THANK YOU. I will try to find you. PS,, my adventuring boat has nothing i want. I need piggy and others but all I get is rubbish!

Ditto. I think the only really good final rewards I've gotten have been map pieces. Maybe a sticker, I can't remember. Primo pet treats, which are kind of nice.

I don't even bother trying to finish the ones for decor.

I think this is another place where the game needs to adjust its rewards based on player level. In the very early days, I remember being thrilled to get that dolphin topiary for the first time.

I also worry about the idea of major changes. Much as we like to complain about some of the rewards, I still fo every dive to the end unless I have an rl activity that prevents it.

My request would be for the addition of an autodive button so the seal automatically starts each new dive when the previous one ends.
