The thing with HayDay in the 70s level is Grease is the Word. I never have enough oil or butter. I catch up on the cream and then it’s gone. Ditto sugar. The sushi maker sucks up the rice but I can still manage to keep on top of that. My new facilities like the pasta kitchen and the salad bar just use so much oil and butter. The mayonnaise takes butter to make and then the lemon butter takes butter. It turns it into a massive challenge but also a lot of never ending work and dead ends. You have to stop producing and that’s a shame and a bit pointless really. I could keep it simpler and not offer to fill boats with all the different products. It would mean I don’t get the points and other players wouldn’t get the points either. If we all just stick to wool, cotton, wheat and vegetables there is nothing to buy. The red cloche hats are currently swamping the market because there is little call for them. The town folk don’t buy them, they don’t seem to come up on the boats and occasionally there is a call for them on the trucks. I make and keep 4. It can take 3 days to sell them, pretty as they are. I have extended all I can on the farm, the fishing area and town. That was quite an achievement so when the land deed, markers , maps and mallets come up I can now sell them and help others extend their real estate. I haven’t extended the fishing tackle and traps much because that is incredibly expensive with the diamonds. Not sure what that is about. In the 70s level it is always a challenge. Right now I am potato challenged because of the pasta kitchen. We need more plots but we also need more land. The game is not what you think and the complexity changes as you go along. I can remember the first 14 levels being really hard. Then it all choofed along and grew but now I am back to the really hard. I don’t really have the resources to do what the game is asking me to do and so I’d like them to think about the logistics of that. I can fill other people’s boats easily. I cannot always fill my own. I have plenty to sell but I don’t really need the money. I can make some things easily but other facilities are sitting there idle. My sewing machine never stops. I can keep it filled and going. The hat maker is idle most of the time. When I am at the level of making the next hat it will be busy for a while. The pasta maker never stops but the pasta kitchen can’t do much because of the butter scarcity. The dairy needs to be able to produce things faster and the olive trees need looking at. The problem is saws. If you had enough saws you could keep up the oil. Even if you hire Tom you solve the problem for a couple of days and then you are short of olives again. I take it all on face value. I do what I can. I think out what I can but , in the end, the game has to meet us half way and solve some of the shortages so we can play. Players also need to get a variety in their shops so we can all keep playing too. If you can’t make the stuff and you cannot buy the stuff then you grind to a halt. Three words : butter and oil.
