'Tripwires' that make you stop getting items from destinations?

Post by parking_god on Sat Mar 30, 2013 3:39 am

tamildv said this in yesterday's trading thread:
DO NOT VISIT any of your neighbours hotel.... if you do you will loose the ability of getting shampoo from Cyprus...
Which made me wonder
1. How the heck did you figure THAT out? And BTW thanks for all the help you've given all of us.
2. Are there any other 'tripwires' that would cause you to stop getting hotel prerequisite items from Cyprus? Because I've been flogging the snot out of that destination for a week now and haven't seen a hotel prereq item for several days. I know they're all 'very seldom,' but I haven't visited anybody's hotel, and you'd think I would have hit at least one in my last 50 or so trips.
3. (general case of #2) Do you know of other tripwires that would cause you to stop getting items from places? That'd be a good thing to know in general.

Aaaaaaand no sooner do I post this than I get a Disposable Shampoo from a Cyprus flight. Oh, well. I'm still curious about the question.

Some are obvious - like the one I posted....

If you can see them as "Very Seldom" - then you are in better shape... - it will drop just will take a very long time...

If you build your 1st hotel or if you click on a neighbours hotel - those items from Cyprus disappear totally.... so "very seldom" now sound good...

If you are planning more than one hotel - then hold of building the 1st one or visiting a neighbours till you have collected all of the items...

the alternative is buy buying them with greens....

You could try the spyglass to help with the drop rate...

There were someothers I will try to dig them out ...

Same goes for the stadium. Items keep dropping until you build it, so if you want more than one stadium, don't build it until you have enough for more. I figured 4 is the most I want, so I made sure I had 16 of each item before I built my first.

If you have the space and have collected more stadiums...

Build it - then after it has finished there is no need to find the 4 items - just sell it and you get free cash... cheers

You should be able to build it without the items. The items are only required to activate the building after construction is completed.

Weird. I was satisfied with one stadium. But after 2 months of playing, I am getting drops from my 1 Brazilian villa and 1 Brazilian cottage. So now I have 2 stadiums built and 3 more in my building warehouse and not building them so far. I am thinking what kind of city would have 5 stadiums???? Razz
