    I'm on 16. No quest here. Although I did get a new map last night.

    My quest showed up after my third time entering the game (got daily bonus again ). As mentioned, parts 1 and 2 are pretty easy.

    Not if you aren't sure about your next move. Where to dig is a difficult decision.

    Mine first appeared in the newsroom as well, after a trade.
    Farewell, everyone.

    I wish you good fortune in the game.

    Even more than that, I wish you joy and well being in the real world.

    This is how mine appeared also. Searching did not trigger it, trading did.

    I just wanted to say thanks for something we finally got. When PG added the extremely annoying, green flashing notifications in SP they got lots of flaming feedback.

    Thanks for listening and not doing the same in HA.

    I've just noticed there's no "skip" option in the quests. I wonder if that's for now, or forever.

    I mentioned that earlier and lucid contacted me, I told him my opinion on the quests and asked him to take a look at the sp forum and/or to ask via the forum if my suggestions (skipping certain steps so that those who took a certain route, started late, have advanced games have a choice) make sense. He's definitely aware of the missing option and thinking about it - and following the forum .

    Yes! Kate was the one person I'd seen on the forums mention skipping as something she'd like to have.

    Generally, skipping is more expensive and less fun than playing the game to earn the quest completions, so we didn't make a point of adding it this time around. Kate suggested that some folks would still rather have the option.

    Do others feel the same?

    I vote for having the option available. It may be a bit tough to use when resources are low, but I like having the choice.

    2 people, I mentioned it to you directly.

    It's a option that would be good to have. Up to the players if they choose to use it.

    I mentioned it because it might be relevant in the near future. My concern was that some players wouldn't understand that such an option is great to have and can be ignored otherwise. The pricing can cause complaints, but I think satisfying everybody is impossible and such an option can allow some players to proceed while it won't affect others.

    Personally, I have never paid rubies to skip a quest in SP. BUT, there were a couple quests I remember that were impossible to do and when you clicked on skip it was 0 rubies to skip. Those I did use. I occasionally checked how much to skip, but decided it wasn't worth it. PLEASE make sure if you put in the skip, there is a confirm, not just uses those precious resources. Just my opinion.

    I think adding a skip option is solving the wrong problem.

    The most common reasons for skipping (in SP) I believe are either because your tinker is tied up, or because a search is in an unavailable area. It hurts my completionist eyes to see a quest that I can't finish, but other than those above, it's extremely rare that I can't easily finish it, could be a digging one right after wasting all my resources on something. Once you can actually afford to skip, those circumstances are even rarer.

    The pricing for skipping is also generally a huge ripoff in SP, and it's very hard to balance it so it's fair without being too cheap, which I suspect is a bad business design. So, it has to be safe on the expensive side, ie a huge ripoff for the players.

    So, I suggest rather than skipping:

    1. Fix the quest so they don't give tasks in unopened areas.
    2. If/when you implement the tinker, do it right.

    For the completionists, I'd rather see an "abandon" button on the whole quest so I can get the annoying icon out of my view, rather than being able to pay to skip parts of it.

    Got a multi-part generic quest with skip options today.

    Progress!
    Farewell, everyone.

    I wish you good fortune in the game.

    Even more than that, I wish you joy and well being in the real world.

    Yeah, thanks, James (and team). Also the pricing is reasonable, as step #2 requires searching a darkroom, I would actually be in the situation where I would skip that step – at least if you wouldn't have announced new content.

    Gosh, I don't know where you are in your game, but my understanding is that HA came to a screeching halt at some point. You might want to read this thread if you haven't already done so.

    It would increase the game rather of copying the thought of dig sites for that dark room.
