In the new anniversary Castle Challenge going on now, for day 15 the challenge is to “ earn 200 coins in the Airship area”. In the Castle Vicinity scene I have tried morphing flowers for coins, hidden objects areas for coins, airships for coins and nothing is registering coins in the “Airship area”. What am I doing wrong? What am I missing ? Am I in the wrong Airship area?

Hi pdustcoll  wave

I know the CC task is worded a little ambiguously but what it means is "to get 200 coins and you do that by loading the airship."  Not sure if you even need to send the airship off but I sent mine just to be on the safe side.  Every time you put an item in a crate for the airship, you earn coins.  If you are quick, you will see numbers rise up your screen once you have loaded the crate - those numbers are the coins you have earned. They are added automatically to your coin inventory - you don't need to click on anything or do anything. 

You said you tried airships for coins.  So I am wondering why the CC task did not complete.  Did you load the airship after the CC task became available or before? 

Sometimes (if it is close to changeover time for the new day in MC) I will load an airship but not send it until I see if the new day's DQs need airships sent.  In the case of this CC task, the coins from those crates would not count because I did them before the CC task was available.  

If you loaded the crates after the CC task was available then the coins should have been applied to your CC task as well.  

Try sending your airship again.  Hoping this solves your problem.

No, you don't actually have to send the airship off. When I loaded my first item, I noticed over to the right the "Completed" (or whatever it says) flag popped out. But I finished loading and sent the airship because I was also doing that for Trina and the Daily Quest.

As stated by LvlSlgr above, one does not need to actually send an airship to receive credit for a Castle Challenge when the task is to get/earn/collect/receive coins from the airship area. 

When a crate is packed, one will see coins float up to the coin bank. You receive 15 coins for every item you pack in a crate. So (in this particular CC task), to earn 200 coins in the airship area it only requires the packing of a crate requesting 14 items (14 x 15 = 210). If a player has an airship that wants items in 2 of the crates that he/she has little of BUT another crate is asking for items for which there is plenty.....the player could pack the crate asking for an item he/she has a lot of ......and that will fulfill the Castle Challenge task.

HOWEVER, one can only send a fully packed or a completely empty airship. A fully packed airship will yield the coins from packing the three crates as well as a stamp and bag of pet food as a bonus. .................An airship sent empty will not receive the pet food or stamp as a bonus because the crates were not filled.

The caveat to this method (packing only one crate) is that:

1. You cannot "unpack" a crate ....because coins were added to your coin bank when you packed it. 

2. Since you cannot "send" a partially packed airship, you would need to allow the airship to go off on its own when the countdown timer goes to zero....when it goes off by its own, there is no award of a stamp or pet food because you didn't actually "send" it.

3. If you don't want to wait the remainder of the countdown time, the only alternative (once a crate is packed) is to pack the other crates and then hit the send button, at which time you will also receive the stamp and pet food.

I will not have access to the game from S 11-18. How long does the CC game stay up after the last challenge?

When the 24-hour period for the Day 30 challenge ends, then the CC ends.
