Re: Fossil Digging Tips

Further to Krazy's post above I can tell you that it's currently possible to collect:

 

15 Leaf Fossils
5 Trilobite Fossils

5 Ammonite Fossils

4 Ramphorhynchus Fossils

4 or 5 different sized stones

A rusty tin can

An old tyre

A branch

 

I don't know if it's possible to collect any Ammonite or Ramphorhynchus fossils at this time with the standard tools though [maybe someone can confirm or deny that?] as I haven't got any of those yet.

 

That mysterious woman doesn't seem to give any rarer fossils than the suspicious man either but she does sometimes find 2 fossils in 1 clod of dirt.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Fossoil Digging Tips

I allways use 4 times the strongest tool each which works fast and fine.

With tools which you can buy you can reach 2 founds with each digging.

Who said the 2nd place is not allowed?

Re: Fossoil Digging Tips

Just the fact that you can't access it by conventional means Blue. If it was allowed, they would give us a rope or a path up to it, don't you think?

Re: Fossoil Digging Tips

I think it is all about marketing.

Cool to do "forbidden" things, isn´t it.

If they want to stop this - it is very easy to stop - don´t you think?

Ok Seribal, I don't think anyone's explaining this to you very well, so here goes.

You get one dig a day (as you know) so falling is the last thing you wanna do. Personally, I NEVER use the jack-hammer. If you look at the star rating of each tool it'll also tell you how likely you are to fall using that tool. So use the hammer and spike aggressively the first couple of times then finish off with your shovel or brush. The "clods of dirt" are given in random sizes, I've had small, medium and large ones all with the default tools so it's just luck there. Just don't get greedy and go for more than one fossil per day, or you WILL fall, and when you do you loose ALL the fossils you have collected.

Which brings the next bit of advice; you can save up to 100 fossils (I think) for the girl that appears on the 7th, 17th and 27th of each month who'll give you rarer stuff than the shady guy. That's it really. I'll point out that most if the fossil furniture items are not exactly "small" either, maybe the rusty can is but the rest are a fair size.

The whole "secret excavation site" thing is part of a glitch (an actual, useful glitch) which I won't go into here as it's not really allowed...

lol no good explaining now over a month and a half after i created it , i have since collected all the fossils and they're  sitting nicely in their display cases  :Thumbs:

Would you mind stating them? I knew it is a bit much to ask but, correct me if I'm wrong, there is no completely full list of the fossils you can earn. Also, did you buy any of the tools?

Re: Fossoil Digging Tips

I dunno Blue, was it as easy for them to stop people from dancing in the bowling lanes but that was what, to forbidden and cool for them to bother with too?

@ Seribal, I didn't look at the original post date. So in that case, well done on your collection!

Re: Fossoil Digging Tips

I bought the pick-axe but haven't bought the shovel. I've found that I can get 2 finds by using the pick-axe 3 times and the hammer and chisel once to get one find and then repeat.
