District Tan Lines: Feedback Page

Hey there Testers!

I wanted to put up a place for those that are testing out the New District. The main purpose of this post is to give you somewhere to go to leave your main questions, concerns, suggestions, issues, etc for Tan Lines while you play and progress through it all.

Tan Lines Luxury Resort Unlocked

For the Main Details on the Tan Limes District, go HERE and HERE.


Feel free to leave your comments below as needed. I will be passing all this information on to TinyCo to help correct areas of concern and overall improve the Tan Lines District before game wide launch happens.

I will also try to post any feedback or updates from TinyCo on those items in this post. Thanks for helping test out an interesting New District. I know I’m looking forward to it all.


PLAYER FEEDBACK

Remember to be helpful and be detailed with your feedback.  Don’t just say fix something, explain issue and make suggestions for improvement. Feel free to even give kudos to something you really like about it.

I’ll start it out with the #1 thing I am seeing…

Concern/Suggestion: Players don’t like that Characters on Tasks/Checked In at the Tan Lines Resort are showing up in the Character Task Selector Icon in the top left corner. Scrolling past 15+ Characters per floor to find one you actually want on a Task is tedious and time consuming.

Players would like the Characters removed from the Icon to help game experience and save time scrolling through them all.

TinyCo Feedback: They’re aware of the Concern with the Tan Lines Characters showing up in the Icon and are looking into a solution. UPDATE:  “Issue with characters checked into the resort appearing in the character finder will be fixed in version 1.21.0, which will be released in a week”


UPDATED 4/13/16

Concern/Suggestion: Daily Quests not appearing. (FYI, mine finally appeared triggered by Peter, and yes… they will vary by Player)

TinyCo Feedback: This was fixed, but you may need to wait for the next Day Daily Quest to trigger.
***Side Note Bunny: Also try to make sure you do not have TOO many Tasks open preventing it from showing as well as restarting your device to ensure patch is in place.

Concern/Suggestion: With the Stewie Cash Drops being “Chance” and a small amount, some feel the District may go TOO slow in earning items to get to the Evil Monkey, as it will take a lot of exchanging. Can more be given or an ALWAYS drop? Also suggestion of shorter time for the payout?

TinyCo Feedback: Thanks for the Feedback, we will look into it.

Concern/Suggestion: Can we exchange currency down as well as up?

TinyCo Feedback: Thanks for the Feedback, we will inform the team that Players are wanting an option to trade down too.

Concern/Suggestion: Why are some Characters not included as being able to use Tan Lines, Like WrestleMania?

TinyCo Feedback: Certain main characters can’t be checked into Tan Lines to prevent potential blocks. These characters include Peter, Lois, Jerome, Mort, Chris, and Joe. You will also not be able to check in new event-specific characters for the duration of their event. We are working on a fix for not being able to store WrestleMania characters, and it should be pushed by Friday! (4/15)

Concern/Suggestion: Will there ever be a possibility to add Characters to ONLY one level, instead of the system automatically adding them from first to last?

TinyCo Feedback: Thanks for the Feedback, we will look into it.

Concern/Suggestion: Kool-Aid’s Girlfriend is showing as a Clam purchase now and not for Currency for some Players.

TinyCo Feedback: Please send any players reporting this our way! Screenshots would also be very helpful.
***Side Note Bunny: If YOU see this in your game, please report it from your game right away and if possible include a screenshot of it or feel free to email me and I will forward it to TinyCo (familyguyaddicts@gmail.com)

Concern/Suggestion: Players would like to continue to earn keys in advance. Players stating they stop earning them once they meet requirements for a Level, but want to keep earning as they know the next Level needs them.

TinyCo Feedback: This may not be possible as Materials are programmed to not drop if they are not actively needed.
***Side Note Bunny: I agree with this one. I get that it may be cool to keep earning something in advance when you know it is coming up next, but I also have seen the downside of this. To set it to keep going no matter what… downside… it won’t STOP dropping that Material and will keep more cluttering up your Characters Tasks with unnecessary Material drops on Tasks you may need for, say, an Event. I personally think that an “unlimited drop” is a bad idea due to this has happened in the past and it was frustrating.


There you go, a place to voice things you run into as Testers for Tan Lines District. Take your time playing it. No need to rush Districts. Have fun! 🙂

  5. Hi, I started the Tan LInes quest when it showed up and I still have the hotel but I don’t think mine is working, there’s nothing to do there, I only played the chapter where Brian had to read snooty books then no more quests popped up for it. I now have all the floors unlocked but there’s nothing else to do with it, that can’t be right can it? Unless it was a timed event !?

  8. I’ve hit a major glitch. I was working to unlock the last floor, Conch. I collected all the needed keys and then hit the button to start unlocking the floor, which I think said needed 12 hours. Well the next time I thought to check in there the floor had the unlock button back. I said hmm, I thought I unlocked that already. When I click on unlock it shows the number of keys I need to collect again, but when I try to send characters to collect them there are no keys shown for the quest, and they don’t collect any. So the floor is locked but won’t let me collect keys. I’m stuck.

  9. So it sucls that ive been playing FGQFS a long time now, and i only have enough characters to fill 3 floors so the rest are useless to me. Plus with events i need some charters out. I like it but it needs a better set up, maybe choosing what floor they go on eden they are unlocked, or need less to fill each floor. It’s good idea bc i do have a lot of char. I need for events but not as many as are necessary to make this work. I hope to see some changes soon! Thanks

  11. A question on how the Tan Lines occupancy and rewards work:

    Can you earn rewards/bucks if some but not all levels are full?

    I’m currently tentatively working on the Rock Oyster Floor (#6). It’s not a priority because I won’t be able to fill it unless (1) the number of residents needed to fill it drops instead of increases from floor-to-floor or (2) I stop participating in events so I can free up characters (and reading through your info, a lot of those characters won’t go to Tan Lines anyway, as they are reserved for the current event)..

    If I unlock level 6 but fail to fill it, it seems logical that I would still have a normal chance to earn bucks at the Blue Mussel level (#5) and below (as long as I keep them full), but logic doesn’t always rule the day in these games.

    Has anyone tested this?

Everything seemed to be running smooth initially however the past couple days I noticed characters that I had checked in somehow checked themselves out. When I tried to add them back in they don’t show up as available (Consuela, Jake Tucker). I msgd tiny co a couple days ago about the issue but still havent received a response back. Also I haven’t noticed daily tasks for this. Should they appear with my other tasks or within the tan lines pop up box itself.? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  22. I have high hopes the drop rates for stewie dollars will improve!!! With the extremely low drop rate of 1 green stewie dollar utilizing 15 characters for 24 hrs and a chance at completing the 24 hrs task, you can get 2 green bucks a day (granted the more floors unlocked the more bucks but still wildly not close to enough pay out!!!) SOOOOOOO….That means it’ll take 4 YEARS to get evil monkey. How OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    And a helpful solution to the issue…stop being such a Mort Goldmen about youre stewie dollars TinyCo! and spend the love around a little!!! 😉

  23. With the start of Week 2 of the current event, Spock and Mr. Miyagi were expelled from the Tan Lines hotel. I also needed to collect, which removed my chances to get a blue Stewie buck.

    My biggest concern is that they will not go back in the hotel. I put them into my inventory and replaced them with other 2 other characters.

    I reported it to TinyCo via in-game messaging.

  25. Just had an odd thing happen after tonight’s event update. My Tan Lines Resort was full on the three levels I have unlocked. I collected from it earlier tonight and now I just found Spock and Consuela wandering my town instead of being on the Corporate floor where I left them. When I tried to check them back into the resort they are not available. I had to bring other characters out of inventory to take their place. I’m not sure if this was just coincidence that the Boomsday event update just went live at the same time.

  26. Dislike the new Tan Lines area. The whole point was to make use of characters who no longer have tasks to complete, but when they’re in the hotel they can’t earn me coins to expand into other areas. They sometimes have side quests, but to do them you have to take them out of the hotel, defeating the whole point! And the currency can take YEARS to accumulate enough to buy characters!

  29. One problem I have is… With all the building and people, my game runs very slow. Support said to put people and buildings away and bring them out when you need them. How do I know when I need them? just took god out and saw he had a 24hr mission…. If I go into my inventory and then events, nothing is there… so how do I know who is need?

    Like

    • The way that things work is if you need a Building for a Task, the Task will actually tell you when you tap on the Character. It even goes further to have a lil tiny “GO” icon on that task that takes you right to Inventory Storage to pull the Building out.

      Same seems to work for a Character. If you have a Questline appear that needs them and tap on “GO” in the Questline pop up, it pulls out the Character from Storage to use. It is helpful in that way. Then there is always my detailed info for Event Phase releases. I will note the Materials and the Character or location that drops those materials, so you can get an idea of who or what you will need. 😉

      I have a TON in storage since I have been playing since BETA in 2014 before the game launched.

    • Yeah I find that a bit frustrating too, like heavy flo and a couple of other of my wrestle mania characters can’t be checked in even though they don’t have other roles to fulfill anymore, (can check in giant Chris etc from previous quest though) as such I don’t have enough characters to fill the first floor as all my others I need for the current quest. Would be easier if they allowed all characters to be checked in so its your choice whether you want them in the resort or doing other quests.
      I’m glad that once they’re checked in the resort now they no longer show in the corner so don’t have to tap through them all.

    • They do not go off your progress, they go off your Player ID. All were picked randomly via the Player ID. It would take AGES to go through over one million plus games to see who is on what level to give BETA too. Basically longer than it would take to just test it. 😉

    Has anyone seen a daily task yet?
    I had “check back soon…”
    now have “task complete” yet have no idea what the task was or that I had completed it.
    Keep meaning to check this 1st before I do anything else but don’t always remember as Tans Lines is still kinda new.

    Looking forward to the update to stop guests showing in the job queue

    I too have had Tan Lines 24hr timer reset by a block being cleared.
    and I also believe that the end of the Wrestlemania event cause the 3rd floor (corporate centre (not center I’m British!)) to cancel unlocking, key totals left in tact so have set it off again.

    I hope Giant Chicken becomes available again as I missed out on him by 3 voodoo dolls, hell I didn’t even manage to get Stone Cold’s Truck let alone Heavy Flow. Haven’t got a clue why exhibition matches were still spitting out belts when there was no use for them!

    Daily Tasks up and running and working fine. They have kept them quite basic. But maybe need to know a defined payout, rather than just a chance of this or that. As depending on payout I may decide to not tackle that daily task over something else character is needed for on a particular day, or vice versa.

    Could we maybe have a pier leading to the resort, I likes fact they are using the water but it seems alienated with no way for characters to reach it.

  42. They aren’t kidding when it says “Chance of” for a Stewie buck. Timer counted down and only received a total of 1 buck today. 1 for the lobby but nothing for the mezzanine. I’m sorry but a 24 hour timer should be an always, a guarantee, not a wait a day and be dissapointed at the horrible drop rates as per usual. It needs to change to always if the floor is full. This isn’t Jesus producing clams here, this is a currency that has insanely high exchange rates for higher color bucks. (One Gold buck is equal to 720 Green ones.)

    • Remember it’s testing and drops are more for testing purposes. More options for the money should hit… like daily tasks.

      • I have had my first floor full about 4 times now. The timer hit twice because I used clams to speed it up and twice at natural speed. I have not received one green dollar from any of those timers hitting. I thought I was doing something wrong to not get anything but after reading on here that doesn’t seem to be the case. Also, the island’s timer has reset itself before hitting 24 hours multiple times upon clearing a block or constructing a building. I don’t think it’s supposed to reset itself, and like the other times, I did not receive any green dollar from those timers resetting as well.

          • It is a “Chance” as the image in the Tan Lines says, so the payouts will vary on what you will get. Just make sure they list it as “chance” and the floor is full. Just testing, so the earning may be slow for testing purposes… but it will give them an idea of the functionality of it all. No worries, just keep going along and see how it plays out. Districts are here to stay.
