    Regatta zoo tasks

    The regatta zoo tasks take way to long to complete! Two days is ridiculous for a 135 point task It’s much easier to do an animal feed or crop task that takes less than 1/2 the time. Devs, please rethink the time interval between new requests.

    It can take as little as 6 hours to fill 10 orders if you’re prepared - have all 8 orders half filled. Select the task. Fill the other half (or send the clover if someone filled a basket). Now you’re at 8 out of 10 instantly, and only have to wait 3 + 3 hours for the next two.

    Granted it’s a FAR cry from the old zoo tasks where we could do 5-6 in a day.

    Veganville is right.. I usually take a zoo task before bed - having all 8 orders waiting for the 2nd item to complete it. Wake up and the last 3 are there waiting to finish off the task! Voila!!

    One zoo task works Okay, but you can’t do a second one for over a day after completing the first one as it will take another 24 hours for 8 tasks to refill. I typically would only manage to do one zoo task per regatta now.
    It would be nice if as you get more animals and enclosures completed the total number of orders went up. That would add some incentive to grow the zoo.

    So....what is the maximum number of tasks you can have sitting on a board at any one time.

    Max you get in a day is 8, I take it?
    But can you keep those 8 and get another 8 the next day or do they vanish?

    Those same eight will sit until the end of time.

    As soon as you complete one, a three hour countdown will start for one new task to show.

    If you complete two in one go, a countdown will start for one new task. Once that new task shows up, the countdown will start again for another new task.

    Ok, got it. So 8 is always the most to get on board at one time.
    Thanks Nevada.

    I have 11 zoo orders to complete so that's 8 plus 3 hours plus 3 hours plus three more silly hours meaning 9 hours minimum zoo task. But of course im not prepared so....Oh man, what have I done. :! :!
