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.
