CityVille Cheats and Tips: How to be a good Neighbor
Who knew that being someones neighbor in CityVille could mean so much? Well, according to CityVille forum user pupitza, it most definitely does. The disgruntled mayor details in a lengthy forum post the things to do and not to do as a CityVille neighbor. Pupitza mentions that most of his neighbors do nothing but send buses to his city and that this needs to stop. (Really? I thought that's what we were supposed to do.)
The other thing that seems to grate on pupitza's nerves is collecting from neighbors' houses and Community Buildings. In his opinion, this doesn't help him much at all, and he kind of has a point. But here's what pupitza thinks would help neighbors more than just sending legions of tour buses:
That all sounds pretty reasonable, especially since Zynga recently changed things so that friends can help complete your Goals by harvesting crops and completing your buildings during visits. Guiding players' boats would also be more helpful than just collecting coins and goods. However, there are other ways that you can be fine and dandy neighbor than just paying your friends a helpful visit.- Revive/water/harvest my crops. (especially to those that takes longer to grow, like peas, wheat, pumpkins or corn)
- Salvage/guide/empty my boats (guide especially those that last longer to arrive like Dubai and empty those that are closer like New York, for them to not vanish)
- Build levels to unfinished buildings (it takes too long to a level to build and the bonus bar is gone until it is build)
Pupitza points out that replying to +3 Energy batteries sent through the Zynga Message Center will send back only a +1 Energy. So, replying to these gifts manually through the Free Gifts page would result in more Energy sent than normal. (Granted, this is something Zynga should look into.) In fact, responding to most requests through the Free Gifts page seems to be more effective, according to pupitza. While a lot of what pupitza is asking for doesn't necessarily help visitors, it's something to consider next time you visit a friend in need.
