    Valley - Basic rules

    Valley - Some basic rules


    --- Change log ---
    07/07/2019: Post updated with some screenshots from Season 1.
    12 - 14/07/2019: Add some clarification (roadside chicken, daily quest), Valley map, some more tips
    15/08/2019: Add illustration for roadside chicken and for Season end
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The Valley Trial season has been eventful. From what I read, a lot of players have not been able to fully test this feature due to various issues. Therefore, it's quite difficult to say whether it's worth it to play the Valley in the future.

    This post is not a complete guide about Valley (at least not yet), I simply try to gather information from HelpShift, official video and my experience to explain what and how the valley could be without the bug. Hope this could help you to understand the basic rules of Valley and work out your own strategy to get the most fun out of it. For those who haven't been able to play Valley, this will help you be ready for the next Season.

    Follow the links in this thread.


    #1 Valley shop
    REGULAR SHOP:
    - tokens are reset at the start of each season
    - open to everyone
    - items are listed and unlocked as time passes during Valley season (every 3 days in Season 1)
    - each offer can only be purchased once, but same item can be listed more than once
    - offer includes: expansion item, puzzle pieces, expansion permit, booster, decoration
    - you can spend token in the Regular shop during Valley season and after season ends
    - tap on booster icon for info, double tap on cost to buy. Booster from valley shop doesn't take up free booster storage. You can store 3 free booster along with the ones from Valley shop.

    Observed issues during trial & season 1:
    - trial: once you reach the limit of 1000 tokens, you cannot earn more token. There is no info about how to remove token --> players with unbalanced token could be stuck and cannot do more order to earn token or get chicken. CHOOSE YOUR TASK WISELY.
    - season 1: wallet limit is 6000 tokens. Price has been reworked, players are less likely to be stuck.



    Full size image

    EXCLUSIVE SHOP:
    - items are only unlocked, once season ends, if and only if the Valley you are in have collected enough chicken
    - by design, the wallet limit and item price induce that you can only buy one of them
    - season 1 offers: 40 diamonds, exclusive decoration (Valley Car) and pack of 3 5-star boosters (tap on booster to see info)

    --> When season starts, visit the shop to spot what you want. That would be your goal for the whole season.

    #2 Fuel
    - fuel is reset at the start of each season
    - free spin and sun task reset at 12:00 AM UTC
    - one free spin a day to get fuel
    - get additional spin by filling the sun bar, sun points required goes up (20 / 50 / 100 / 200 / 550 / 1000 / 1500 / 2000....)
    - sun points are earned by doing sun task, as many times as you want. 3 sun tasks per day. In season 1, extra sun points once sun bar filles are lost, each sun bar starts at 0.
    - left over fuel is carried over to the next day
    - max fuel you can store is 99, extra fuel will be lost.

    TIPS:
    - build up fuel as much as you can, but use them wisely


    Known bug:
    - while you are at your farm gathering sun points, if a chicken has been collected before you gather enough sun points for the next fuel spin, the sledge notification WILL NOT appear until you visit the Valley as "x1 chicken collected" notification takes precedence and doesn't appear outside of Valley. --> Visit Valley often to monitor your sun bar.



    Full size image


    #3 What can you do in the Valley?
    - complete various request to earn token (choose your request wisely): (a) order request (with products from your silo or barn) ; (b) group request (requires 3 to 4 players to fulfill, first come first filled); (c) delivery request (deliver crates to another building, zoom in to follow the yellow dots before accepting request)
    - drive truck towards the cloud to uncover other buildings and new request
    - collect chicken on a road stop (choose "Drive there" at the road stop with chicken, tap on it and choose "Collect")
    - experience a truck breakdown (and you can help them)
    - find surprises on the road (voucher, cream, syrup, mining tools...)


    Full size image

    TIPS:
    - Road side chicken: often hard to spot (always on yellow road stop, no chicken icon if in plain sight), usually within 5 nodes (road stop) max from a truck that has moved recently. Truck won't stop automcatically when driving over a road stop with chicken. --> Pay attention to the road stop before driving.


    Known bug:
    - trial: generation time stuck at 0, not seeing other trucks, truck losing tag... --> download optional update
    - Season 1: any other bug (greyed out button, no expected pop up...), temporary fix is force closed (completely quit) the app and restart



    #4 HOW TO: Group request
    - group request has icon of "screaming chicken" above the building. It requires 3 to 4 players. All players in the Valley see the same group order request ; each player can only complete each group request once till all the slot are filled. Once all slot are filled, chicken is awarded to the Valley.

    Known bug:
    - season 1: icon sometimes won't go away even if there is no longer free slot in the group request (no other players required, chicken already awarded) --> if you cannot see what the request asks for, don't waste fuel going there if it's too far. Check with someone in the neighborhood who can see the request or come within 5 nodes of the building should normally let you see request details.
    - any other bug, temporary fix is force closed (completely quit) the app and restart the app

    #5 HOW TO: Repair a broken truck
    - truck can break down when moving, wait 2 hours (or spend some diamonds), or get help from nearby driver to continue moving
    - to help: spot the sign and drive there, tap to repair (see picture when it works without bug)
    - during trial and season 1: no notification when someone repairs your truck --> keep checking back

    TIPS:
    - if you come closer to the truck (within 5 nodes), you can tap on the sign and should see how long till self-repair --> you might not want to use fuel if truck repairs in a few minutes


    Known bug
    - trial: invisible truck where the sign is, or truck keeps breaking down again, unused fuel are lost. --> download optional update
    - Season 1: any other bug (greyed out button, no expected pop up...), temporary fix is force closed (completely quit) the app and restart



    Full size image


    #6 HOW TO: Delivery request
    - before accepting the request, check out the destination for fuel costs (follow the dots, usuallu 2 to 5 fuels)
    - drive to the destination building and deliver (see picture when it works without bug)
    - you need to finish a previous delivery order before taking another delivery order
    - you can stop on your way to complete order request or group request

    TIPS:
    - if you don't have enough fuel for the whole delivery trip, consider another request to save fuel. Zoom in if the pop up covers the dots. If you cannot see where it goes, don't accept yet, come a node closer at a time and check again. It's risky to accept request when you don't have enough fuel to complete the delivery in time.

    #7 Daily Quest
    - Daily Quest should normally reset at midnight UTC. See more below for known bugs.
    - each quest completed let you move one step further on the path (dot turns blue)
    - when you reach the dot underneath a chest, you unlock it. Chest can be claimed till the end of season (tap to claim). Season 1 has 15 chests for 84 dots.
    - if there is a chicken sitting on a dot, reach the underneath dot, tap to claim. Chicken stays till Daily Quest resets (tap on it for timer).

    TIPS:
    - if you earn booster from a chest here, it goes straight into the booster storage
    - Quest "Collect 1 chicken": take part in a group request / collect a road side chicken / claim a chicken from Daily Quest
    - Quest "Visit a specific building": refer to #0 Map of the Valley to locate the building near you that looks like in the Quest
    - Quest "Complete a delivery requst": if there is no delivery request near by, move slowly (node by node) to uncover new buildings and check their request till you find a delivery request you can do. You can see request from buildings within 5 nodes from your current position


    Known bug during trial and season 1:
    - timer of daily quest doesn't always end at midnight UTC as intended (sometime sup to 1H before). Quest will always reset when the timer reaches zero (even more than once a day) and at midnight UTC. Some can have multiple daily quest, let them move more than 4 dots per day.
    --> compare with fuel reset timer (which is always midnight UTC). If Quest timer resets before, it will reset again at the same time as fuel reset (+/- a few minutes). During this "virtual quest", you probably won't have enough fuel or time to complete quest --> in this case, it's best to wait for the normal reset at midnight UTC.

    #8 End of Season
    - once the Season is over, you can access the shops to spend token until you cannot afford anymore
    - token needs to be discarded before you can enter the next Season

    First of all, thank you meonhoc for writing the guide.

    After the conclusion of Season Two, I hope we will have the answer to the following question: When our trucks explore a clouded area and uncover portions of the map in Season One, will the clouds return in Season Two and cover up the explored portions?

    Hey Meo! Thank you for your time and effort in posting this information (I've been out of town for the past couple weeks and haven't had time to read up on the operation of the Valley as of yet). Once I get acquainted, I'm sure I'll have some questions. Thanks again!

    Thank you for your comments so far.
    * reserve post for FAQ later *


    To find out:
    1/ Cloudy weather comes back the next season or when you drive away

    2/ Changes to Valley if NH hopping
    ---> Apparently player stays in the same Valley they first join.

    3/ Max fuel one can store:
    ---> Anwser : 99 (link)

    4/ Truck visiblity (aka cloud radius)
    ---> Request from building is visible at 5 nodes max.

    5/ Timer related to generating request in various cases
    ---> Group order request lasts 6h. Other request usually If completed, next request in 4h. If expired, next request in 30m.

    7/ How often for chicken / surprises on the road / truck breakdown
    ---> Preliminary observatons : 2h - 3h for a roadside chicken to appear, near a recently moved truck.

    8/ Cloud covering part of the map
    ---> Part of the map where order has been requested seems to stay clear from the cloud even when the truck has driven away.

    I'd quite like to know what happens if you move to a different NH during a Valley season.

    I presume that you would leave the Valley you are in with your current NH & move to a new Valley that your new NH is part of - BUT it would be nice to get a definitive answer on this & how it would affect things like group tasks that you may have already taken part in.

    How to find out? I'm guessing it would require the knowledge of a SC staff member, to answer.

    Optional update is now available (my Play Store at least).

    And AppStore as well. Look for version 1_43_150.
