I had a look at all the c.i.'s and they all look great, and the two different golf pieces will look great with last years

on a side note, no more cats...we need more dogs, turtles, owls, non singed raccoons...gophers for the golf course, they pop up and down and dig under ground when you walk/run.

Ehh... not so sure if I like that we have an event this week instead of an area expansion, but I'll take it, something new to do at least. I agree with Leona on the customization items - the capes especially look really good.

But I wonder if we'll actually have an area expansion next week. It's been over four months now after we got the Seasonal Forest.

guess what Andrew, almost immediately after this event will be another one. The whole 3.5 year history of the game is visible just above right here where you are looking.

While I agree with Andrew and Bluji, I was sort of hoping the devs was going to surprise us by releasing both the event and new area but hence I was wrong, I will just have to wait like the other players who’s at 280.

@ Andrew – patience is a virtue , so just wait till the new area comes , I and other players are also awaiting for it too so don’t act like a pork chop and make a song and dance about it just turn the lemons into lemonade matey ok.

Now I have a few suggestions for CI”S for next years Patriot event they are as follows

- have a Indian head dress for a hat
- have a mountie hat for a hat
- have a captain America mask for a hat
- have a stuffed puma or buffalo for a ranch decoration
- have a maple tree for a ranch decoration

I was considering purchasing the American (blue)and the Canadian flowers (red) from a previous year,s event. Can anyone tell me if this is a one shot deal, or will I be able to purchase more of these flowers afterwards?

@Flybaby : You can't seem to purchase more from the store, only one unique item each.

@Russel Denton Those are all good suggestions, however, while BW dances on thin ice with some cultural stereotypes, I recommend they not step on toes abusing the feather headdress. It is meant to be a sign of respect and honour as well as have spiritual significance and using it as a prize in a cartoonish game would be a double down on the insult. (Yes I know other games do it, but hopefully not those made in Canada) An analogy to help you understand, follows.

“Both feathers and face paint have purpose and often spiritual significance depending on tribal protocol and individual interpretation. In Native cultures, both feathers and face paint are earned through actions and deeds that bring honor to both tribes and nations. Individuals [outside the community] who wear feathers or face paint were not given the rights or permissions to wear them. This is analogous to casually wearing a purple heart or medal of honor that was not earned.” — Dennis Zotigh, Cultural Specialist, National Museum of the American Indian

*Addendum: I do not wish to argue, but I need to use this teaching moment as I just had this discussion with my son, who is 19 and knows everything, and, I am a Mom so I have to add this! Politicians need to be politically correct. They know that someone in a huge demographic is likely to be offended and not vote for them, so they temper their words very carefully. A comedian, not so much . We as humans need to know, no matter what we say there is a likelihood someone will be offended at one point in our lives. The questions we have to ask are:

Are we purposefully trying to offend to get a laugh, or denigrate another human being, race or “other”, whether names of persons are added, or not? Does my freedom of speech give me the right to not only say what I wish, but also have others NOT be offended by what I say? And, when someone is offended, does it mean that they are too sensitive, or that I am being insensitive? Were I the person who was being denigrated, persecuted, bullied, would I have the right to be offended and speak out?

Good point Kittypurrrs, but they can get around all that PC (political correctness) crap by getting creative and doing the headdress a different way though.

Happy Canada Day for tomorrow, fellow Canadians, and Happy July 4th to our American friends! In real I am placing the Canada flag on the door, and small flags in the flower pots and hang banners and wind socks, and am all ready to hand out my famous maple cookies iced with Canada flags on them to all the neighbours. Canadians can be patriotic too!

~~~ I do have to ask ... how come I got a backwards cap and maple leaf glasses that look messed up (the stems of the leaves form a square with my characters lips... looks quite weird and the hair covers the maple leaf tops so doesn't look at all like expected) and I see Americans all looking dang fine in their "Paul Revere" garb! (As a matter of fact, Canadians are wearing it as well. AHEM!)


In other words, my character is a dork and Americans look classy! Not fair! WHAHAHAH (Don't jump on me Raymond, it is merely a teensy weensy wittle whine)

Next year please make up for it by having something more Canadian! http://www.aliexpress.com/item-img/NO-1-MASCOT-maple-leaf-canada-day-mascot-costume-custom-fancy-dress-cosplay-kits-Cartoon-mascotte/1752598947.html

That way I can at least be a majorly uber A-one first-class dork!

Addendum... PS: THIS YEAR is the 50th anniversary of the CANADIAN flag. You missed an opportunity to make us delighted and honour your heritage with say... a free flag gift from the developers... like the one on a flag pole, in the commons for Patriotic event. *cough* It could be the beginning of future additions like flags for any country people could buy and fly on their ranches and golf courses. (being flags already exist, no artistic pain to make and could be sold in the main area of the town hall from a drop down menu...)

Is this an intentional response from the player to Natalie?

Are only Bigfish players having trouble with the fireworks boosters working? We have no green or yellow, the setup is not in the order we set at and the specials are not working. (except longer and faster I think)

I play on games.com and can't set the color to yellow. Everything else seems to be working though.

No, I mean the player response. I don't think it's supposed to say "Chat Response", it's probably a temporary thing the developers were meant to replace with something but forgot.

Hi Guys,

We know there are issues with the launcher settings. We're taking a look.

The Launcher Components should be working properly now, if you want to change up your fireworks show! ^.^
