    Beim Szenario Eden am Ende lassen sich die kleinen Inselaufgaben nicht mehr alle lösen. Schildkröte kann nicht mehr befreit werden, Vögel reinigen und Trümmerhaufen beseitigen funktioniert nicht mehr. Szenario schon komplett zurück gesetzt. Geht weder im alten Spielstand noch im Neuen.

    ich kann im Hauptmenü nichts mehr bedienen seit dem Update…..

  3. A AnnoGebi April 12, 2022

    Keim der Hoffnung ! äh, wo bekomme ich den Platz für eine Attraktivität von 1750 in der neuen Welt her?!?
    Wolltet Ihr nicht die Inselgrößen verdoppeln 😉

  4. K KingxOfxVoids April 9, 2022

    Population quests appear on other players island in multiplayer then either:
    1. Cant finish them because they ask goods
    2. Can finish them because you need to click or make a phote but wont get a reward
