News: The 37 X 37 Expansion Featherbed Problem

The 37 X 37 Expansion Featherbed Problem

About the 37 x 37 Homestead Expansion, Part III

There's a problem with it, and you may find it hard to complete.

The trouble is that it requires five (5) feather beds which, when you list all the ingredients, require:

 60 tools

150 cloth

700 wood

25,000 coins and

10 downy feathers.

The problem is getting the downy feathers.    They come only from completing the Chicken Coop or the Goose collections.   The Chicken Coop collection is a relic of the past and impossible to complete these days.  The Goose Collection would be possible, but it would take forever.

You could buy your way out with, I think, 85 horseshoes which if you bought 465 for $35 would prorate to $6.80 in real US dollars, although you'd have to spend the whole $35.

As it happens, I just completed Part III in an odd way.  I had enough materials to make one feather bed and I was wondering if I cared enough about the Expansion to spend real money on horseshoes, when I happened to open a bunch of care packages I'd gotten from various neighbors whose names I didn't notice.  The first four packages contained feather beds.  I knew that care packages supposedly contain 'items you need to complete your missions,' but I didn't believe it.  I have occasionally gotten timely gifts from Frontier Jack, but that was before the recent deluge of care packages.  Maybe it's all true.

Just as oddly, today I got some downy feathers from a neighbor as a wall bonus.  Curiouser and curiouser.

So, if you're trying to complete Part III, check your care packages.  I'd be interested to know if it works for you.

I guess I'll have to take back 2% of the bad things I say about Zynga.

Has anyone had trouble with the smaller expansion? I only need one more poop scooper and I have been asking for months with no success. Any ideas?
