Hey Everybody!!!  Building Supplies...... 2204663260


I'm just curious and hope Ya'll will chime in with some ideas for me. My fingers are cross


After building everything you can in town and complete zoo. Expanded as far as they have yet allowed.....

How many Building Materials and Expansion Tools do you keep???

As you know the trains keep bringing them, the chests from all places you can get them and Planes and Zoo orders completed More keep coming!

I'm sure we'll expand and eventually have a new Community Building or Factory. However what's the "rule of thumb" for using your barn space for these things???


Thanks in Advance!!!! Thank you

Hey, I don't keep any building material in my barn unless there is an announcement for a new building.

Only in my Windows town there are some animal enclosures left to build in the zoo, besides that I'm done. Very Happy

when room in barn, i tend to keep 200 planks, glass, slabs, and about 60 of the 3 tools like jackhammer... and when an update is anticipated.  

when tight on barn space, push comes to shove... Will sell down the slabs, planks and glass, but not the tools.  

Since PVE is now a regular thing with upgrade tasks, now I try to keep/build up about 3 barn expansions and always struggle for hammers...  it seems like trains bring fewer barn upgrade items when I sell down the glass, slabs, planks too low (when desperate sell down to about 12 ea.)

I tend to keep 100 ea for land expansion as well.

when we get updates that require building materials or land expansion tools... I have no patience to gather... and keeping the stockpile alleviates the impatience factor.... but is not easy on barn space... never enough space...  so it is always a trade-off.

I’ve decided not to store any quantity of expansion tools.  I do still have a tiny bit of woods left on the far edge, but I enjoy the animals there and want to keep those.  I don’t need the space anyway.  So I’m accumulating expansion coupons now.  Since these lab style events with those coupons are coming more often than game updates with land expansions, I don’t see any use for those tools for the foreseeable future.  The only way we’d suddenly need lots of tools would be if they open up a whole new addition like the zoo that needs to be cleared.  

I do still need bricks and slabs for my last zoo enclosure, but I won’t let those build up too much until the next lab style event with the bonus barn space.  I’ve been able to finish one enclosure per event pretty easily, two in the events with the 2x rail cars, so I don’t see any reason to use my barn space for those until then.  After that, I plan to hold bricks, slabs, glass at about 50 each and about 30 each of the power tools for any possible new cb.  I don’t care if I can’t finish it immediately.  That stuff accumulates pretty quickly.

My mobile town is legit like that @cemblack LOL!!!  I had 17 million coins and all my animal cards, so I just built all the enclosures and have been completing them as I get the materials.  Nice little tcash bonuses.

I stopped building the zoo enclosures with about 15 to go, maybe more. I didn’t start working on the rest until I leveled up to finish all the CBs.  Then I would buy one zoo enclosure for each lab event, then a second one if I finished the first with enough time left.  Finishing a zoo enclosure the last week of the event is a great way to transition back to regular barn storage from the 120% capacity.

Last event, I bought all three remaining enclosures and I think that did confuse the trains a little.  I remember we were always advised not to start more than one cb at a time because of that and I think it may be true for the enclosures as well.  I did eventually get the parts to finish two, though.

Good point, @Mayfield.  I've noticed that my stuff comes in weirdly sometimes, and I think it's because I built all the enclosures at once.  But I seem to be able to complete one every month or so (we're at the 200 each of two types of materials phase) and I'm okay with that.  I just pretty much ignore the zoo until the construction hat pops up to tell me I can finish an enclosure, and then I pop over, finish it, and go back to ignoring it.

Hi @Campogiro. You might think about reducing your supply of jackhammers, electric saws and drills to 50 and consider increasing your stockpiles of planks, bricks and slabs to 250. (Welcome to UTF!) Smile

If the add a zoo enclosure it would likely be even more than 250 for two of those.
