350 Piggy Bank Not Worth It

I have the 350 piggy bank and i bought the first one but honestly its just not worth it nor could i personally afford to break the piggy bank everytime its full. Now its just an annoyance. Plus why does the icon on boat trades have to be sooooo large. Honestly is a bit on the hideous side and imho doesnt fit the paradise bay theme rich graphics.

I've also gotten the 350 gem deal. It fills so quickly you can break it once a day so I try to ignore it as best as I can now. What annoys me is that when it's full all the piggy gems you earn from then on bounce back on the pig. As if I don't know it's full and need a reminder :evil: :roll:

Oh and even if it's still a beta they should have made the gem offer the same for everyone.

Hey, I only got the 260 gem deal, so it could have been worse.

I don’t understand the boat avatar beef. If you are talking about visitor boats, I have often wished those avatars were larger, or could be enlarged with the stretch gesture. They look interesting but some are just too detailed to figure out at normal size.

The problem I do have with the boats relates to boats at my dock. Some of the large boats have such a large clickable aura that I cannot open the small boat docked just above it, even when tapping directly on the small boat. It’s like trying to get to the hedge piece just behind Wesley used to be. I have to scroll the large boat almost entirely off the bottom of the screen before I can open the small boat. Reducing the active area for clicking on the large boats seems like something that ought to be pretty easily fixed.

I have that problem with the boats also. Small ones are a pain to click if next to a large boat. Then I end up clicking the one with maps and I hate that because I always hold him hostage on a certain pier. Then I have the headache of getting him back to that spot lol. And sorry for the hijack.

I know your deal is even worse :( it just doesn't make sense that there's a difference to begin with.

I've got that boat problem too, especially when dreadbird comes to pay a visit.
And often when I'm visiting friends and want to feed their pets I need to zoom in to the max and even then I can't seem to tap on the pet to give it a treat. Especially with the latest pets and when they are cluttered together.

Yes, pets crowded too close together is a problem. I only brought up the issue with boats at docks here thinking maybe that was the essence of the op complaint about boat avatars being too big.

There are some objects, including the big boats and some pets, where the clickable area is way too big, and others, including the yarn mill, Cuddles and some others, where the clickable area is way too small. I need to tap and tap and tap to get their banner to come up.

I only have an issue with a small boat if the GS captain is below them. I have to move the GSC below the horizon to select the small boat. I never have a problem with Carl, Anya or Dreadbird.

Ok sorry to sound stupid but, how do we actually break the bank? I have never done it.

It's not stupid. You break the bank by buying it for the 2.99 price, or whatever you are quoted in your piggybank.
