This "It's part of a quest" bunk is *really* old. The Lumber Mill needs to be obtainable in a reasonable manner and time frame. I feel like I'm wasting my time, which is NOT enjoyable. Ahem...game makers...games are supposed to be enjoyable. I'm giving it 5 days from today, maximum, and then I'm deleting the game and taking my money with me.
Thank you for posting. I was just about to purchase the sword bundle to go looking for the mill when I read your comment and that of the others.
Window Cat... Have you ever tried shipwrecked wiki?? It helped me with everything. It has the quests in order to get you to your lumber mill
Shipwrecked wiki people!! Google it....
level 71 just got quest for starry eyed to get next quest should be lumber mill. Says wiki
I'm currently at level 38 and I've pretty much built everything I can without the use of planks. I have 11 buildings I can't complete because they need planks. I have other buildings I can't upgrade because I need planks. If I can't get the lumber mill until level 72, then I'm done. This is ridiculous.
Keep up the good work in the forums lostgurlz . these foruns have now become a good source of getting information and are a pleasure to read now .
anne wilson, I have no idea if you work for the game makers or if you just really enjoy pointless games, but I've seen your comments in a few discussion threads now and they all repeat the same mantra: keep playing, being patient is fun, you'll find the lumber mill eventually. Hogwash. You know what isn't fun, having a game that won't allow you to accomplish anything other than collect from existing buildings, because you have to wait for merchandise that's apparently at level 72. How is that enjoyable or fun? It isn't.
What it is is financially genius. By the time players start seeing the need for a lumber mill/planks, they're invested in continuing to play. That investment drives them to spend money buying swords to explore the forest for that mill. Now not only are they psychologically invested to continue playing, they're financially invested too which makes them less likely to stop playing.
This is a game that requires no skill, no cognitive abilities whatsoever. It only requires an internet connection and time. So when the game is being kept hostage for no reason other than to encourage you to spend money, it's shady and unethical. There's nothing FUN about that.
