Thanks for that.
How do you get to the place where you hang the paintings on the wall? Is it the AES Museum? Must you complete all of the collections before you can enter?

You should be able to go in like any other building, hold your curser over the door and click.

AES Museum, and please help with that lawn, it's atrocious!

When I do that it says I can not go in because I must be a member and I have to complete the Antique Explorer's Society Quest. What is that and is that where I will find all of my paintings?

There are several threads here (now on pages 2&3) which tell you how to join the AES.
Basically, go to Breezy Bay, Click on the wharf and enter. Go to the aeroplane and click on Chris. He says he's waiting for a delivery, which comes and floats down onto the wharf with a balloon. Click on the crate. It's empty and he then gives you a quest to find out what has happened to his delivery. You then have a few quests before you can join the society and enter.

EFW1, when you get these quests to come up will you please see if there is a timer on the bottom of the quest and report back?

Thank you so much for that information. It worked perfectly. I now am a member and I can enter the building. And all of the collectibles are dropping as they should. Makes a big difference!

P.S. I did not see any timers attached to the quests on the wharf.

Good going!

I think the timer we thought we had was just that count down to July 1 and we got the two mixed up. Thanks for checking on that and reporting what you found.

Thanks EFW1, appreciate your letting us know. Oh nice to know something shared worked too.

Yes, of course, it was timer until 4th. So that would also mean that people can take their time completing the paintings if they don't have the resources gathered to play them straight away. Which is a very good thing.

Robs, you have to go put the collections together:

Where each item for the collections

Put together the collection, assemble the item CLICK on the clue, this should trigger the quest, go to the main screen and play the quest.

robs -- I had trouble getting the paintings (didn't get the quests) until I clicked on the writing one the clue. That seemed to trigger the quest. Clicking anywhere else on the clue just made it go away.

As being a player that is at the max level I too had trouble with this quest, so please do not feel bad. IT IS A VERY LONG, HARD and INVOLVED mission. Once you get all the paintings and hang them. Then you get to work on getting all your collectibles up to the Master level which means you need 51 pieces of each part. It is very time consuming. I have been using the daily quest to earn extra pieces and put them out there at low prices for the newbies or even the older players that don't have the time to sit and play all the time. I have it because I had surgery and am recovering and retired. So please let me know if I can help in anyway. My name in the game is ldehaan and friend code is 568 5342.

Resurrection shuffle. I thought this was such a good detail I would add it to this thread because it is the one I most often reference to folks just hitting the painting quests.

Original question:
What can I do to get the quest for finding a missing painting back again? I got all of the pieces on several of the paintings, got the quests, and found the paintings. But on the telephone and compass, I did the puzzles, got the notes, clicked on the notes, but never got the quests. Is there some way to get the clue note back so I can try again? I can't seem to get the required pieces to completely re-do those ones. I have tried now for several days.


OddlyEnuh wrote:
You will have to recollect the pieces and reassemble the item, click on the clue, which will reactivate the quest...... I believe if you miss step on the path, you can play a scene till you are blue in the face, that painting will not appear.

Only other thing would be that one might need to be on the professional or master level of a particular city for the item to appear.


lake_girl23: FYI I am on the paintings quests as well. I am only at amateur level on some of the locations (the clue was for "fast shopper" mode) and have received the painting; however, if the clue suggests to be in "picky shopper" mode, one needs to have at least a professional ranking in that location to get the "picky shopper" mode. Hope this helps and clarifies a bit.

A huge thanks to everyone for this thread!

I was absent from ART for 8 months and only recently returned. I was eagerly exchanging keys with old and new friends and reached the 1000 points to get membership in the society. Still barred. I thought I had missed the opportunity to join (sigh).

I followed OddlyEnuh's advise this morning and now I'm in. Happy happy!

Now I will be a very busy minnow swimming in the Bay!

Oh good, Mpendo. I thought it was a fun set of quests; different than most I think. The lack of directions really got us to work together on this one which was really nice too.

You will find it a very Breezy Bay when you go swimming!!
In order to become a member of the society you have to go and talk to Sam at the Wharf and follow the instructions. Have you done that? Have you been to the Museum to check if you are a member already?
