    Event Basics



    Presents
    Presents represent the event resource. They can be used to acquire special items from the event shop.
    Your presents are listed in the "Event" tab of your storehouses.
    There are many opportunities to get event resources:
    • Rewards for Christmas Scenarios (Buff Adventures)
    • Two combat based Christmas Adventures (chance to get presents as an additional reward)
    • Special Christmas Daily Quests and Event Quest chain rewards; including the new Quest Chain for 2018
    • Explorer treasure searches (chance to get presents on top)
    • Conversion of the Christmas collectables in the Mayor's House
    • Event Calendar
    • Trade with players
    • Present packages in the Shop





    Bells, Candy canes and Gingerbread. Did you miss them? These Christmas collectables will spawn on your island until the removal phase of the event. Nine collectables will spawn with every spawn cycle, randomly chosen between bells, candy canes and gingerbread. All of them reward exactly 2 resources when clicked. Please be aware that for the full number of collectables to spawn, the whole (main) island has to be claimed.

    The Christmas collectable items can be converted into Presents in your Mayor's house until the removal phase of the event. Trading is possible until the removal phase of the event as well.





    What makes Christmas Event so special? Why... the Event Calendar, of course! Isn't it nice to receive a gift each day, just by clicking on a door? To open the Event Calendar interface, simply access the Calendar icon next to your avatar.

    4 DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOORS
    You can open a door each day. In total, there are 21 of them.
    The calendar will display the time left to open the current day's door.



    Type: Regular door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not



    Type: Buff Adventure door
    Description: Can be opened anytime for free, once the respective date was reached
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not



    Type: Special bonus door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open



    Type: Celebration day door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open
    Rewards: Very special rewards




    SPECIAL CALENDAR REWARDS

    This year, we've shuffled around the Event Calender Doors to make more sense thematically with Christmas itself. Therefore, the highly-rewarding "Celebration Day" doors will be on the 24th and 25th of December. While these special doors will remain a mystery until you get to open it, we'll give you a sneak peek through their keyholes and see what precious presents await on the other side!


    Brand new this year is the Gift Christmas Tree, which you can not only buy from the in-game shop but also find it behind a special door this year; remember - rewards obtained from the Calendar do not contribute to the usual shop limits! Once placed on your island, you will be given a quest that demonstrates how it works: every 7 days you will be able to click on the tree to receive a free gift! This gift is drawn from a pool of prizes, including fill deposits, collectables, resources, buffs, adventures and mini-adventures. What's available to you will depend on your level range. Having additional trees means additional gifts every week!

    Click on the spoiler below for a full view of what's in the loot table:


    Spoiler
    "Gift Loot Table"

    Here's how the prizes are determined: think of the Gift Christmas Tree as giving you a ticket to a tombola. Every individual prize has a certain number of tickets assigned to it, giving it a higher or lower likely hood of being the prize that's picked. As an example, say Prize A has 100 tickets, whereas Prize B has 50 tickets. This would mean there are 150 tickets total in the pool: Prize A would have a 66.6% chance at being picked, whereas Prize B would have a 33.3% chance (2:1 ratio).

    Please note: Prizes (Item Amount) coloured in "grey" will be halfed before level 26.

    But that's not all: the Gingerbread Storage is also part of the Calendar - this is a 3x3 size building, but don't let its small stature fool you: it has a capacity of 18,000! While it can't be upgraded, it does make it a perfect candidate for a storehouse you can move around very easily!

    • Recurring: Tearing it down will return it to your Star Menu.

    Adventures & Quests



    This year features a new quest chain that will see you helping Santa build something truly special for your settlers and their holiday cheer!

    2 CHRISTMAS QUEST CHAINS
    Name: Xmas Market
    Minimum requirement: Level 26
    Description: Help Santa bring some festive fun to your settlers and be rewarded with your very own Christmas Market building, once you have also completed its companion chain "Winter Wonderland".

    Name: Winter Wonderland
    Minimum requirement: Level 26
    Description: Santa wants your aid in building up his new "Winter Wonderland" island, but not everything is as it seems...




    So what is this Christmas Market, and how does it work? It can be placed anywhere on your island, where it can buff the output of all workyards in an area around it. The bonus it provides, as well as the area to which it covers, can be increased by upgrading & unlocking further buffs for the building. If placed correctly, the potential benefits are extremely lucrative! You also don't need to fret about fully upgrading it this year, as you'll be able to continue doing so in every future Christmas Event. Here's how much each upgrade costs:



    Upgrade LevelMove CostsUpgrade Costs
    Level 1FREE2,000 Presents / 1,500 Marble
    Level 21,000 Real Plank / 1,000 Marble3,000 Presents / 1,000 Exotic Planks
    Level 31,000 Exotic Plank / 1,000 Granite4,000 Presents / 2,500 Granite
    Level 42,000 Exotic Planks / 2,000 GraniteN/A


    We purposefully removed the move-cost of the Christmas Market while it's at level one. We know many of you will want to maximise its efficiency, so this lets players try out and test different placements for the building before they beginning to commit to upgrading it. It should be noted that the Christmas Market will lose any upgrades it possesses if it's demolished and returned back to the Star Menu; we've added an additional confirmation box to prevent any unfortunate mishaps!

    What's also noteworthy is the cost of the buffs themselves: they're quite cheap for the powerful output bonuses they provide:



    Upgrade LevelEffectCosts
    Level 1+100% / 5x5 area / 12h Duration500 Planks / 500 Coal
    Level 2+100% / 9x9 area / 12h Duration500 Meat / 500 Tools
    Level 3+200% / 9x9 area / 12h Duration500 Intermediate Paper / 500 Sausages
    Level 4+300% /11x11 area / 12h Duration500 Exotic Planks / 500 Gold


    We're also going to be adding a new skin to the game sometime after the event has ended, which transforms your Christmas Market into a more traditional market look. This gives you the option to keep the theme of your island to your liking: festive or not!



    Presents: While the buff adventures will provide you with Presents during the event until deactivation, the two Combat Christmas Specific Adventures will only have a chance of providing you with Presents.
    If you play them after the final event deactivation (see deactivation steps) they won't provide Presents anymore.

    2 CHRISTMAS ADVENTURES (COMBAT)
    Name: Save the Christmas feast
    Minimum requirement: Level 26
    Description: The Croaker has stolen all the presents. Defeat the Croaker and retrieve the missing presents.
    Price: 95 Gems

    Name: The stolen Sleigh
    Minimum requirement: Level 36
    Description: The Christmas Feast is in danger. The Croaker has stolen Santa’s sleigh. It is up to you to get it back.
    Price: 95 Gems



    It's now custom for Christmas buff adventures to be hidden behind certain Event Calendar doors. Before you redeem them, make sure you're in good holiday spirits; you'll be helping Santa out by delivering gifts to houses on multiple islands!
    The buff adventures are balanced for the following level groups which are checked once you open a door: 16-25, 26-35, 36+. There are 6 special adventure doors in the calendar and you needn't use a General, for this Christmas buff adventures require certain types of buffs instead of troops.




    UNIT TYPES
    Special buffs are needed to spread joy which turns sad people into happy ones.

    Achievements



    The Christmas Achievements are here once more to offer you an extra source of presents. You can unlock them during this event only.
    Presents are rewarded for successfully completing achievements; the amount depends on the achievement's difficulty.



    The Achievements deal with many aspects of the event:
    • Finding presents during Explorer searches
    • Succeeding in Christmas quests
    • Crafting in your Mayorhouse
    • Helping friends with buffs
    • Opening Calendar doors
    • Completing the "Xmas Market" & "Winter Wonderland" Quest Chain

    WHAT HAPPENS AT THE START OF THE REMOVAL PHASE?
    (31st of December ~01:00 CET ~10:00 CET*)
    The core mechanisms of the Event are turned off at the start of the removal phase.
    • Info Widget/Countdown
      The event countdown gets replaced by a new countdown.
      The new one indicates the remaining time of the removal phase until the event gets completely deactivated.
    • Christmas adventures
      Event scenarios from the calendar are cancelled and cannot be started.
      Event scenario buffs cannot be produced anymore and can be reimbursed on the Mayor house.
      You can still play the two shop Christmas adventures.
      If you finish an adventure before the event gets completely deactivated,
      special event related items like Presents are still rewarded.
    • Quests & Achievements
      The event Quest chains and Achievements will be deactivated.
      New Christmas event-related tasks will no longer be triggered.
      Only completed Christmas event achievements remain visible.
    • Collectibles
      All event related collectibles stop spawning.
      Christmas collectibles spawned before the start of the removal phase can be collected.
      The respective resources (Bells, Candy and Gingerbread) will be hidden from the storage and trade
      The resources get converted to gold coins later (see event resource conversion).
      The related Mayor house collection (Basket of Presents) will also be removed
    • Treasure Search (Explorers)
      All treasure searches started before the start of the removal phase and returning before the deactivation have the chance to reward event currency. All treasure searches started during or after the start of the removal phase will not reward event currency anymore.
    • Misc
      The option to convert Marble and Presents to Granite inside the Mayor's house is no longer available.
      The event shop remains active and Presents can be used to get special items until complete event deactivation.
      The event calendar will no longer be accessible.
      Event-related loading screen, Reindeer, UI skins, the giant Christmas tree and music will be removed/set to default.







    WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE DEACTIVATION?
    (7th of January, ~01:00 CET ~10:00 CET*)
    • Trade
      New trade offers containing event currency can't be set up anymore.
      Active trade offers containing event currency are set to invisible.
    • Shop/Event currency
      The Event shop category is not available anymore.
      Event currency is not visible in the Mayor's house anymore and will be converted into Coins later.
    • Christmas Adventures & event buffs
      Event currency rewards from adventures are deactivated.
      • This applies to Christmas adventures from the shop. During the event, these adventures drop either buffs or Presents (on top of other loot). With complete deactivation, the chance to get Presents is removed from loot tables. As a result, buffs will always be chosen.
      • Christmas buff adventures from the Event Calendar are changed, too. They reward gold coins instead of Presents. With event resource conversion, the Christmas buff adventures will be deleted, because you cannot finish them anymore.
      • Buffs needed for Christmas buff adventures can no longer be produced.
        Remaining buffs can be applied on your Mayor's house for a full refund of production resources.




    EVENT RESOURCE CONVERSION
    (planned for one of the future game updates: January or February)

    As usual, all event-related resources will be converted into gold coins.
    No event resources are supposed to remain in the game.

    A script will run during the game update downtime to replace all event resources (especially Presents) with gold coins.
    The conversion applies to all items of that type, such as
    • items in your warehouses and in your Star Menu
    • items included in public trades and friend trades
    • items attached to in-game mails like loot from adventures or explorer searches


    Conversion rates: The final amount will be rounded up.
    1 Present = 0.4 gold coins
    1 event collectible = 0.04 gold coins


    There is no action needed from your side, you will receive an in-game message with the corresponding amount of gold coins.
    The Christmas Scenarios from the calendar will be deleted during the conversion.

    Update

    Dear settlers,

    We have an update in regards to the Dev Diary for the Christmas Event 2018.

    • The "Improved Floating Residence" was mistakenly marked as being tradable. This has since been corrected. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused.
    • The Gingerbread Storage size was not changed from the Test Server. Internally, we measure it as a 3x3 building, but we understand players perceive it different e.g. 2x2 (the size of a standard storehouse).


    Happy Settling,
    BB_Sious
