Thread: 26.03 Tool Exchange Guide

  1. #51
    This tool exchange has been an additional thing we need to stay on top of, which is bad enough! AND NOW it has also had a huge impact on zoo construction. I still have to save materials if I want to complete zoo enclosures but, can’t do that when you are trading these for tools, by the time you finally get what you need, it’s time to start over getting ready collecting tools for next C.B. When the zoo first changed the way it worked, I hated it, but after awhile, I began to see that I could use my access materials in the zoo, so even though I was not big on building up the zoo, I got into it because they had finally found a way to keep it flowing nicely, so I was on board and started working on my zoo! Finally happy to see them make a change that actually helped the players! No sooner did I start pouring effort into my zoo, than the tool exchange launched and completely shut it down again and now, I’m back to how it was before zoo changes, I don’t use or work zoo at all unless I have to for at task. I’m frustrated with tool exchange and zoo and have decided it’s time to just take a break from the game. We have had 3 members already “take a break” due to frustrations and they have yet to return.
    My team is all saying same thing, Every change makes it more difficult for players. Less enjoyable and more frustration isn’t why we play. Even knew players may stick around halfway through levels, but eventually they will get wise and leave. To bad they don’t care about how majority of current players feel. I have at least 2yrs or more I could continue playing. So do most of my friend and comop members.

    It shut my zoo down also, sadly. I cannot build community buildings and zoo structures. 😖

    Tool exchange

    I'm passed level 60, bought the tool exchange and the appropriate community buildings to use with it and still it's useless. The buildings are not asking for the tools from the tool exchange. Which is a waste of purchasing it, but I guess with all the reviews saying how bad it is maybe I'm lucky.

    Checked for an update but couldn't find one.

    It is an endless circle 😤
    By the time the tool exchange came around, I only had 1 factory left to build. This game is getting too confusing -- agree it is an endless circle. I would like to see the game simplified, not more stuff added. I pity people who still have a lot of building to do.

    So do I. I only have the 1 newest community building to build with it and I'm completely frustrated! I can't imagine how newer players must be feeling. When I officially finished building up my town via community buildings more than 2 years ago, the residential houses and apartment buildings didn't require the tool exchange to finish off. I hope that's still the case, otherwise, this situation I'm in is about to get a whole lot worse! lol

    Interesting .i am at level 69 and like you have not invested in the zoo and probably won’t . I am just playing for pleasure and do not need the stress either, am about to dive into getting the tool exchange but am nervous about using it as I have lots of tools and struggling for barn spaces
    Not sure how it works either

    While not the best solution, this is Playrix response to the countless suggestions that begged for “new storage for building tools”

    I'm at level 116. I have a complete zoo with every animal and every building in town. Is there any reason to save all the tools I'm making and taking up barn space? I thought you make tools to upgrade buildings, but not sure how you do that if that's possible. Any answers would be appreiated.

    If that's the case, then they failed miserably. First of all, people asked for new storage for building materials so we would have more space in our barns. The point of the request was to give us a place for tools that wasn't the barn. Since the tool exchange doesn't change that and all our tools, including the new ones, are all still stored in the barn, this desire has not been met even remotely. Secondly, nobody wanted more tools. Adding 3 new tools to collect is exactly the opposite of what most players making the request wanted. Third, needing to use up basic materials to get the new, shiny tools means a guaranteed shortage for most players of those basic materials, especially if you want to work on your zoo at all.

    If this is Playrix's idea of "helping" us, lol, no thanks!

    You'll want at least some of those materials if they add any more community buildings to the game, like the animal hospital recently.
