Thanks, and a small suggestion

Thanks very much for uploading so many garden item PV cards. It's nice to see the plant articles get some PV card attention :)

If I could make a small suggestion for future PV image uploads (e.g., the eggs), try to go with names like Arocknid-TroubleInParadise-Egg-PV.jpg, instead of ArocknidEgg(750cc)-TroubleInParadise-PV.jpg. The reason why has to do with searching (and sorting). If you search for Arocknid egg, the first image name would show up in the search results, but the second image name wouldn't. It's not really a big deal, and don't worry about the ones that are uploaded already.

Thanks again for your contributions! --FeralKitty (talk) 00:29, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

FYI about plant levels

Plant Infoboxes are meant to show the plant level (as reported by the Journal), and are different from gardener level (availability). For example, the buttercup seed, one of several level 1 plants, can be bought at gardener level 3, while the oak seed, a level 10 plant, isn't available until sometime in the 40s. Availability levels can be found at the General Store article.

It's an obscure detail that we probably don't need to show in the Infobox, but since it's there, I just wanted to clarify the difference, to keep the Infobox information consistent with the Journal. --FeralKitty (talk) 06:35, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Encyclopedia entries

Thanks for adding these Journal descriptions!

What do you think about adding spaces around the dash, e.g., Sand - Sand can be sharp...? It might help readability, and avoid the look of a hyphenated word.

Thanks again! They're enjoyable to read! --FeralKitty (talk) 16:06, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Absolutely, yes! Now that I see how much easier it is the read. I think I can do that instead of bold. --ImaTestWentBad 16:53, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Unsupported cards

Some of them say (can be sold) but don't list what can't be done. Do you happen to know what you can't do for those items, so the descriptions can have specific "Do not..." details?

As for the DedosHome card, it's merely a dud since it can't scan (or doesn't do anything). An unsupported card scans, but (its item) may crash the game. --FeralKitty (talk) 14:34, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Not in-game ency blockades do have their own desc as can be sold for 20CC but are too strong to be smashed (silver bars) You can also put them on each other or very close together unlike most props:
  • Big rock pile - These rocks are as hard as er...Rocks! This is going to require an explosive solution.
  • Elite ruffian guard - The toughest of the tough. Only the largest pinatas will be able to make an impression here.
  • Ice block - Brrr! It's freezing! Time to hot things up.
  • Soil pile - Who left this lying around? Some burrowing pinatas would be handy here.
  • Poisonous weeds - Urghhhh what a mess! Some gardening attention is urgently required.

These are so glitchy below:

Perimeter stone have no option to smash or sell and produce a crash when trying to read the journal info. You have to delete that garden to remove it from the game. Logo is very risky. You will get a game crash if you try to read the journal or sell and it to strong to smash. You must delete that garden to rid yourself of it.

This might be a dud:

Prop totem snail that looks like a Shellybean block might be a dud because I haven't ever got it to scan. It produces a red bar like the Dedos house for me in more than three occasions.

Sorry that I didn't mention or try all of this before. I was nervous to try them all while the game saves, and didn't want the error in the middle of that. ImaTestWentBad 15:45, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry I forgot to mention that the Big rock pile, Ruffian, Iceblock, Soilpile, and Poisonous weeds CAN be sent in a crate.

The perimeter stone and logo can not though ImaTestWentBad 15:56, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

OK, but there's a distinction between "can't do x because the game won't let you" and "can't do x because the game will crash." All we really care about in the descriptions are what you HAVE to avoid that's related to a crash. --FeralKitty (talk) 17:49, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
As far as I know you can't smash any of the things because the game won't let you. So that may need to be re-worded or removed. It just doesn't let you because it shows silver bars like you shovel is too weak.
The game will crash if you view journal, crate or sell any of these things --> VP logo, Perimeter stone, any test sweets. The garden that they are in must be deleted or a pinata/ruffian/Pester must destroy the structure or sweets must be eaten if you want them gone. ImaTestWentBad 18:02, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I've updated your notes next to the cards, so we can use that page as a reference. I assume the SendInRuffian one works and there's no apparent risk for that? --FeralKitty (talk) 18:58, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah... that Ruffian card shows as amber color which means I am not using it at the right place or time. So far it still shows amber whether or not I have scanned it before, have a Cutless in the garden or already have a Ruffian or Pester in the garden. I also have numerous profiles and still I get amber errors. The card DOES SOMETHING and certainly doesn't create errors/crashes that I know of though. Perhaps I will send BIGsheep a PM and see if it can be cleared up. I am going to guess it does something similar to the Pester cards because I have the same result. BTW It's nice that we can just look at the popup up instead of clicking the link^ :) ImaTestWentBad 19:41, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
