That's kinda a result of the game changing over time (and not just this game changing, but "free to play" games in general changing). Originally, when they added pools and multiple stories (just 3 to begin with) there weren't any quests that were a permanent part of the game. Instead the feature was just added (like pools, you update the game and get to level 20 and bam, you can build pools. No hoops.) or there was a limited time quest/event that introduced the new feature (weather, multiple stores). But if you started playing after the limited time quest event you didn't need to do anything to have access to those features.Sigs_Minock wrote: ↑31 Jul 2018, 16:42 My one request- the ability to pass on quests.
I started a new game, and am frustrated that the game throws Quests at you that clog up your queue and even hinder other quests because they're active.
I like the Mysterious Island, so sure- i'll do that quest and begin farming up items to upgrade the Totems. then i get a prompt "Do this stuff to unlock the stables!" Heck no- i'm not spending the cash to unlock a hobby that *gasp* requires MORE time to progress. Later, "Build the swimming center to build a pool!" Why can't i take a quest from Brie to build pools?
Quests should not take priority over others. do them in the order you want
Later, they added the main, queued quest system where you had to jump through all these hoops to unlock the features. A good thing about this quest system is that it brought back as permanent prizes items that were originally only unlocked through limited time prizes for events.
And then later they added the Discovery quest system. Those are the quests you can pick when to do. So the reason you can'tjust do a quest to build pools with Bree whenever you want is because pools were added way before Bree was. And they aren't going to do a huge overhaul on their entire system now. Plus, it's pretty common for games to have things that are unlocked by doing other things. Do this to unlock that to unlock the other thing is pretty standard for mobile games nowadays.
