Pet Society Ice Cream Stand July 18, 2010

There’s a new ice cream stand in the Pet Society food shop and outdoor store today. This “just arrived” item costs 2,000 coins.  As with the cold drinks vending machine, if you buy one, then you can purchase ice cream from your stand. Alternatively, if you have a friend with a stand, then you can buy ice cream from their stand.  Each ice cream costs 80 coins. You might notice that the cost of the stand and items both went up a lot from the cold drinks vending machine prices where the machine was 900 coins, and each drink was 50 coins.

There are six different ice creams available from the stand (a smaller selection that the cold drinks vending machine), and your purchase will give you a random item.  The ice creams go directly into your inventory chest, so the best way to find out which ice cream you bought is to type “ice cream”  or “sorbet” in the search field inside the inventory chest. The five ice creams have little kittens on them, but the sorbet doesn’t. Here are pictures of Momo’s ice cream stand and the six ice creams and sorbets she’s purchased from it:

Here’s a list of the six available ice creams:
Fruity Ice Cream Cone
Ultimate Ice Cream Cup
Ice Cream Cookie
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cone
Tropical Ice Cream Cone
Sorbet Cone

Each ice cream sells for 26 coins.

Thanks Rachel for pointing out that I was missing the sorbet cone!

Do you like the ice cream stand? How do you think it compares to the cold drinks vending machine?  Are you going to buy one, or are you going to buy ice creams from a friend’s stand?  Which ice cream is your favorite in real life and in the game?

In the furniture store, the “one week only” items are the cake armchair, ice cream table, and glazed donut chair.

The “just arrived” item are the donut armchair, cookie table, and cookie chair.

The last two “one week only” items in the furniture store are the candy dressing table and the chocolate dresser.

In the market, there’s a Hansel bear plushie available for “one week only” and a note to find Gretel in the town forest.

In the food shop, there’s an ice cream stand that you can buy and take home with you. Like the cold drinks vending machine, you and your friends can buy ice cream from it anytime.

There are three chocolate boxes that will give a new chocolate each day for a week. Each of the three boxes has the same chocolate selection inside. There’s a rosy chocolate box, golden chocolate box, and a purple chocolate box.

A bunch of items that were needing for cooking recipes have been returned to the food shop, as promised!

Pet Society Cheesy Mayor Glitch

When I posted earlier today about the Pet Society cooking problem regarding the mushroom stool, I was reminded that a commenter named Chef had asked me to post about the “Cheesy Mayor glitch” moths ago.  Sorry it’s taken me so long to post!

Since Momo is only an “apprentice chef,” she has never experienced this glitch, but players who have reached the “A List Celebrity Chef” rank are experiencing huge problems cooking.  The “A List Celebrity Chef” level unlocks the recipe to cook the Cheesy Mayor. Once players unlock this level, they get a “save failed” 3008 error when cooking any dish, so their kitchens are completely paralyzed.  Pets who reach this level can’t cook the Cheesy Mayor, or anything else for that matter.

There are two long discussions of this problem on the Playfish forum here and here.  According to the posts in these topics, the problem was reported to Playfish in April, but it still hasn’t been fixed. Chef wanted me to warn everyone that we shouldn’t be in hurry to cook the Cheesy Mayor in Pet Society because you won’t be able to enjoy cooking until the problem is fixed.  I feel sad for all the pets out there who love cooking and who’ve been receiving this error for months.  Come on Playfish, get this problem fixed so the Pet Chefs can have fun cooking again!

 

Pet Society Sales and Cooking the Vegetable Kebab

In recent weeks, pet chefs have been plagued with recurring problems as ingredients are being discontinued from the Pet Society stores during clearance sales. Passerby and Penangite pointed out that the mushroom stool that’s currently on sale in the outdoor shop is an ingredient required to cook the vegetable kebab in Pet Society. The mushroom stool has always been a strange ingredient, since it was introduced as a piece of furniture, and was later relocated to the garden (now outdoor) store.  It’s a chair in the stores, not a food!

I’m still an apprentice chef, and can’t cook the vegetable kebab yet, but here’s a picture showing the ingredients required to cook it: the mushroom stool, the courgette and the pumpkin.

The last Pet Society food shop clearance sale removed the courgette and the pumpkin from the food shop, which caused problems for chefs in Pet Society. After players pointed out Playfish’s mistake, they announced that the courgette and pumpkin will return to the stores with the updates on July 19th.

Regarding the current problem with the mushroom stool, two moderators at the Playfish forum have reported the problem to Playfish.  Let’s hope that the mushroom stool is not removed from the store for good, or that Playfish comes up with a replacement ingredient to cook the vegetable kebabs. Let’s also keep out fingers crossed that Playfish will think about the consequences of placing items on clearance in the future.
