Easter Egg ( Red Ball )

[Post New]by Misty40 on Jun 12, 09 4:33 PM
I've read that if you have a semi-transparent tool tray, it's easier to find the egg. It was put into the game "just for fun". The people at LDW says it has no significance other than, "it's just there for fun". I had 5 families going with at least 3 generations and had never found the egg. I'm gonna re-download the game to see if it's there. I miss my virtual families.

Did you click in the trees in the top left corner of the screen? That's where I found mine. It's only there for one family, though. There's a trick, after that, for getting it for the rest of the families.

I finally found the red ball (same place, upper left corner) and pulled it through to all my families. Then the other day while playing them, I got bored waiting for them to do whatever it was they were doing, so I clicked the ball and poof! it disappeared on me. I went to check the other families and all of them still had the ball and was able to play with it except one other. So now 2 of my families dont have it anymore. Ive tried getting it back by clicking around where I originally found it, but no luck. It just poofed!

is there any noise or sound to tell you that the ball is there - like with the collectibles ?

I cannot find the red ball anywhere. I have clicked every leaf in the trees - lol

I tried to redownload the game for the semi transparent side bar, but I got the same one.

any advise ?

No, it doesn't make any noise, it just pops on out. Click around the trees above the tool tray. That's where I found mine.

Its more like a drag motion as if you are dragging it out of the treetop, click and drag. I think I perfected it I have 5 families and I got the ball for all 5 of them. I started out clicking like crazy and I could never get it. When I started to click and drag it came right out. At the very top of the left screen as high as you can go, sometimes it appears in other areas of the yard after you drag it out but in all 5 occasions I got it each time.

thankyou very much for your help... now for the dumb question...

did you drag a lil peep around, or just your cursor ?

I'm on generation 6 for one family and at least 5 and 4 on other families and still have not seen it. Because I sitll don't have everything for my collections yet either, I usually let them do whatever and scan around the screen contstantly, so I assume I'd have seen it.

Speaking of the side bar, is there any way to move it or get rid of it when it's not needed?

Take the red ball and put it somewhere, for instance in the sandbox. Go to your next family and click on the location in thei same location in their sandbox. That it should pull the red ball through to that family (and your original family will still have their red ball). Do that for each family and it will come through for them as well.
