at the end of 1st area, the fractal forest, the puzzle gate.. the description before you get the puzzle pieces says you need to whack special bushes in this field.. but there is no field, no special bushes.. just the pieces

fractal forest.. i got the gate puzzle and the key to open the gate at 97% completion of the area, from the 4th puzzle of last field 5.
opened the gate too early, cause i did not finish the last quest of collecting the coins for the last NPC.
when i got back to the last field and finished it, reached 100% completion, i got the key again.
the gate was already opened from the first key. and i got the key for the 2nd time.
i was not supposed to get the key gate before 100% completion of the area. i got the key twice

Huh. Someone else brought up that same case, 1didisafe, but I haven't been able to reproduce it.

I went through and re-tested each of the three zones, completing the pedestal puzzle before the last NPC quest, and the pedestal puzzle never revealed the key to open the gate. The puzzle image showed the key, but it wasn't revealed. Not until the last quest was completed, as it should.

Any other tips on reproducing this would be appreciated!

1st off... Love the "easy on the eyes" color scheme.

Here are questions being asked by other players that have completed the new area, already (I am still in field 2):

Why are there only 3 New Flux Trinkets?
Why no new hub?
Why no new items in the Boutique?
When is Part 2 being released?
So... At 460, we should have level 47 bushes. But we don't. They are capped for some reason at 46?

i have a few idea's/suggestions and queries

- im nearly finished the fractal forest (1st area) and noticed the beautiful critters like the glass/crystal spiders and centaur looking critters, if there is anymore critters thats different could we put them in the hub like you did for the vicuna's, vulpeo's etc for the cenote hub please

- when is new stuff going to come to the casino/merchants of AI it's desperatly needed

- i think this has been suggested before but could we have tables be used like their supposed to be and put stuff on it same for chairs too, we could put gnomes and stuff on the chairs

- i noticed the normal looking gnome ( red hat and blue shirt etc) which we get in the evergreen area is not in the shop for when we buy things for our ranch, could it be added too please

nick.. you said:
"I went through and re-tested each of the three zones, completing the pedestal puzzle BEFORE the last NPC quest.." i was at 30/40 coins collected. completed the 4th puzzle of field 5 while the NPC's quest was already taken..almost done with. maybe that did it.

Hi Nick
Just wondering....
we have a Corroded Stalagmite from the Mountain Passage that says
"I wonder if someone in the Salt Desert would like to see this ... IN THE NEXT UPDATE!"

Have we found a use for it or am I forgetting something?

Nick,
Without revealing any spoilers, if there were to be any prismatic fishing holes, will they produce any custom or ranch items like most other fishing holes in Bushwhackia?

I checked the quest description, objectives, and the pedestal text but didn't see it calling out a wrong field. The pedestal says:

"This pedestal has a puzzle in it! I need to find pieces from special bushes in this zone..."

Thanks for the extra details! I tried it a few ways, including not accepting the last NPC's quest, and having the quest ready to turn in, both before completing the pedestal puzzle.

@Flybaby... a player who has finished already said he never got any CI in the new fishing hole.

So glad to hear you like the new zone! You should still be able to find any bush trophy items in the new bushes. Might take a while as they're rare!

@Joyce.. I have found 3 different Trophy items just in Field 1. I am halfway through Field 2 and have found 2.

Glad you like the colour palette of the Prismatic Passage! To answer your questions,

1) The remaining flux trinkets will be included in Part 2. The only Flux versions available are for the trinkets unlocked in Part 1.

2) As mentioned on my release timeline a couple q&a's ago, the hub will come after Part 2 and the Nate and Kaine adventures.

3) This part 1 update was focused on the content, and didn't include any new store items. We might include some with the Flux Dungeon update coming up.

4) No hard timeline on Part 2. We're focusing on the Flux Dungeon, then Part 2, in addition to the regular event schedule.

5) You might be right about the bush levels! I'll double check that when I get a moment.

Thanks WhackedCrafter!
