I finished photo races w/out the boats working. Only problem is there's photo races where the boat has to be occupied, then it won't let me finish the challenge.

Maybe it's just this server, but one of the swan acorn booths, doesn't seem to be functioning at all.

However, one out of the two is.

Also, can we please see an improvement on steering the swan paddle boats?

I find it somewhat difficult to even do a race challenge, because of the awful steering.

Since most of the leveling and challenges have been locked for me, before I was able to try them, can I ask a noobish question without being crushed? How do you trigger these "photo races"?

It's nothing you do, it's just random I believe. Tho you may need to reacha certain level before they appear. Thats a good question for VeeMee tho.

I think these races are triggered at random as well. However, when I talked to other folk, it seems that they're higher in level than me (which I have been stuck at perpetual Level 1 for about a week) and have gotten these and the water races to work as well. Hope this help! Smiley Happy

 

EDIT: OK - I can definely confirm, Julian, that photo and water races are triggered when you are a higher level. I logged on this evening briefly to see if I leveled up - indeed I did (Level 9 - Groundkeeper), then immediately got a photo race. I had not stayed on long enough to see if I would get a water race or a LMO race.

Re: Acorn Meadows Park Update

I've done all the challenges so far except 3, the Walk all Dogs, Spend 10k acorns & Last seat train rider. Here's a couple questions I have. Do you need to walk all the VeeMee dogs, including Binx / Wolf Hound or just the 1s you can purchase at the Park? Also I counted 23 tasks w/ ??? , has anyone opened those up yet & if so what's the criteria for opening them? If it's spending 10k acorns, lol oh well guess those will have to wait, because I refuse to spend $80+ on a tree item reward or to unlock the remaining challenges.

Hey TC, You need to purchase all 3 colors of Binx, the Wolfhound PLUS all of the ones you can buy in the park.  It seems a lot of the last ??? are for buying each type of Acorn pack so yeah the 10k is one Smiley Mad

Thanks bro, man I was hoping that wasn't the case. Guess if I want to "platinum" the Park money must be spent lol, maybe after a few weeks VeeMee will drop those prices, I know the space is great & they must make money for their efforts but just seems a little pricey too me. Oh well I've spent enough time & energy since it debuted that if I didn't get 100% completion it would erk me too much lol. 

 

BTW: Thanks Best, I enjoyed talking w/ you & the ladies this afternoon!!
