Same Gifts Different Names?

Post by ThavenRipper on Fri Sep 06, 2013 3:34 pm

I think there is some kind of confusion unless I'm completely off on this but....

I'm curious if certain games have different names for the same gift. Example, one of my neighbors asked me for the transmitter. The only thing I have is the Powerful Radio Transmitter which is a flight item, not a construction item which this person needed for a control tower. But my neighbor said it was the one he/she needed. I sent it and haven't got a complaint in my inbox. On the other hand, I can send computers all day long but someone in the Swapping Guide needed monitors. I have not seen any other neighbor than can send monitors. So I'm wondering is the computer the same as a monitor? A friend of mine plays as well at the fuel catalyst is not FUEL CATALYST, the name above it is FUEL SUPPLY. This is my 6,789th attempt at this game so I know I'm not crazy. Can someone clear this up? What's the deal?

I can gift the Transmitter and the Powerful Radio Transmitter. They are 2 different items.

Fuel Supply gets me to San Francisco - it is different than fuel catalyst.

Another item I'm not sure about - someone is requesting triple wire? Is that different than spare wire?

I commend you for your tenacity - I will be out of the game when they lock mine (I'm sure it will eventually happen).

Hi.

Triple Wire is needed for the Fuel Station Level 3 and so it is different from Spare Wire. I have one Triple Wire, but I don't know from where it came.
And there is als a "Wire"... I have one remaining in my warehouse.

Looking through my items in stock, I found also two other items that seems the same but they're not: "Perfume" and "Eau de Toilette". I suppose that these are the english names for those items. For me it is even more difficult because in Italian the two items are called the same: "Profumo"!!!Rolling Eyes One has a spheric bottle, one a square bottle, whth a slightly different lily colour. Could you please help me to understand what is Perfume and what is Eau de Toilette?

Thanks. Cheers!
