Visiting Friends
« on: August 05, 2012, 11:30:48 am »
When visiting a friend, I've seen a little gold star on a character's "bubble." Anyone know what that means? (Wasn't paying attention but now I'm starting to wonder if that indicated one of my own characters that I'd sent over to the friend.)

I believe so; I do know that the starred ones on my street are the friend's character staying in my hotel.

When visiting friends the star above the villagers indicates that that villager is a visitor to that friends village (try saying that three times quickly!).  Tap a villager to see their name, and if the villager has a star above them then you will also see whose village they are originally from.

So what - exactly - does tapping on a friend's building (one that's not undergoing construction/upgrade) do?

From a "tappee's" perspective, when I return to the game after a break and find that I've been visited by friends, there are blue boxes on various buildings. It appears as if effects are triggered when I, in turn, tap each blue box and it makes its rounds to the buildings my friend had (presumably) tapped while visiting. However, if the effect - restocking, etc. - isn't really triggered until that belated time when I return to the game, what's the point? Instead of tapping blue boxes that had ostensibly "helped" me, I could just as easily tap the businesses themselves and restock them, etc.
