    Anyone know the quantity they are looking for?

    My guess would be 1 portal (Core), 4 engines, 4 gardens, 5 assemblies, and 6 zoos.

    I agree. Our FS gets 10 chests every 3rd week. What frustrates me is we could get 10 every week but when the AM says this is not a 10 chest week, people do not try. The KP is the most important to me so I get all I can every week.

    There is a limit of 4 for each of the non-core buildings. The buildings are already in ElvenArchitect if you select the Beta flag in the upper right corner.

    Until Inno gave us that free magic residence last year, I did not have any magic buildings and I did not give one damn about the blueprints because I had no use for them. The blueprint gotten by my fellowship last week was the first one I have ever had and I already used it on my one magic residence. :)

    Has anyone been able to arrange the 16 Ports in a way where each and every one of them earns the maximum link bonus in a space of 4×5 or 5×4 expansions? Gems of Knowledge says it's possible, but I haven't succeeded yet.
    If so, could that person please post an image of their build? Thank you!

    Only 23 expansions and beautiful symmetry - my favorite so far

    Thanks Pheryll, that second layout is very nice.
    I managed to get the perfect layout in a 4x5 space, but the portal takes up another 2 expansions:

    Edit: if you place the portal in the top left corner of this settlement it would take a little less extra space. It just fit better this way in my city.

    The portal takes up another 4 (3 if you put it in the weird gap). Fitting the buildings into the 25x20 (5x4) is 81.6% efficiency for the space consumed. What I came up in the second model if the portal is removed and the two halves brought together is 87% efficiency for a 18x26 rectangle (or a 36x13). The thing is fitting into 5x4 or 4x5 may not be the most efficient compared to alternatives.

    I assume a two week delay from the Beta release date (Feb. 6th) for the Carnival before it hits live. One week would cause an overlap with the Valentine's event.

    The set seems "nice" but not something I'm super excited about. Am I missing something? The quest list is especially easy (only 85 quests, and thanks to hitting the expansion cap, I have lots of scouted provinces), so I don't expect a massive reward.
    Maybe we have to wait and see about the daily prizes? But part of me wants to focus on Trading Outposts, Wishing Wells, or even the KP Library ones.

    I like how the Grand Prizes are divided, and trying to win them, you get other buildings of great value. Even if they are timed.

    I had mentioned in another thread, that people should really think again and invest some room for Wishing Wells. ^ By giving a few "free", hopefully players see the value ;)

    "Take advantage now, before Inno realizes and removes Wishing Wells! :eek:"
