Even having a spreadsheet set up for good and bad ports is not enough as the limit of changing 10 is way too low.
I will keep on forwarding ships that come to my ports, but my own ships are not sailing.
Hi NiMO,
I moved your post to the Feedback thread about the Cargo Ships as you are not making a specific suggestion on how to change this.

Cargo Ships:
Why can we not choose the neighbors that always play and keep them as our constant players . Each time I have a loaded ship, I must go through and try an remove neighbors whom I know will not play and replace them with those who do. I have tried to contact my neighbors by messages and ask them to take their ships offline if they are not playing. Most are nice, some are not and stated take me off as your neighbor if you don't like the way I pay the ships. This was not the response I was hoping for. One neighbor said "I go to the ships and it says" wait 5 minutes, so I wait 5 minutes. I tried to explain to him that message meant the ship had been waiting 5 minutes on him to load the cargo. I have a few neighbors who are great and I would just like to automatically keep them as the ones who are in my ship and not those who don't play correctly or not at all. Please help

Hi bgfarmer,
I moved your post to the General Feedback thread about cargo ships as you are not asking for help with something we can do through the forums.
If you want to make a suggestion about changing the cargo ship logbooks then please post it in the Suggestions section. You can not start a new thread there, but you can reply to one that fits your suggestion.

Hi
Reading through the Ship Guide and some of the posts on the forum, it looks like you can get your buddies to do your ships for you. Is this correct? If so, how do you do it? Not all my neighbours are playing cargo Ships.
Thanks

Hi Walkies,
I am sorry, but buddies can not do your ships. That is reserved only for neighbors. What you may be seeing and thinking it is allowed is how to remove yourself from someone's Buddy List or as their neighbor. Both options are there when you visit their farms.

A few time now, I have had this issue, most recently, this morning....

I open my farm, and I saw that I had 12 ships ready to be "worked". Usually there are 3,4,5 or so

I had last worked the ships about 10 hours ago, last night.

The first 8 ships all showed 12-20 hours !!! of waiting time.

If those numbers are true, I think some of my neighbors would have to believe I just as not helping out for nearly a day or so.... not true.

Anyway..... what could be causing the delay of showing that info to me? Pirates???

Hi StoneFace,

It sounds like there was a problem with data transferring in a timely manner. All you can do is refresh your game before you log off for the night and check your date and time on your computer is still showing correct.

Agreed that it could be a "timely manner" issue.

I will do as you suggest, and if it happens again, I will report back.... "in a timely manner"..... lol

Thanks for the answer.

Hi
Personally I think the ships are great. As I have said before they are a wonderful way of obtaining stuff like horse hair or honey, that are only available to you if you have bought the cash facility, and many shortages can be avoided, for instance, before the ships you had to plant certain crops every day and still never have enough.
Unfortunately I have neighbours who play regularly but do not send ships on. I can't understand why, but it is their choice.
I have other neighbours who play regularly and who are so fed up of neighbours who don't send ships on that they are threatening to deactivate their ships. This means I lose even more "shipping" neighbours and will end up with more and more people who have stopped playing altogether or people who play but don't do ships.
I appreciate that you have made quite a few changes to the original plan, to make it easier and more acceptable and attractive to us, but is there any chance you could reduce the number of ports? Thirty is way too many.
Thanks

Hi Walkies,

Please, all suggestions for the game need to go in the suggestions area of the forum, where all ideas are gathered together in one place for the developers to see. Here's the link to that section, you can't start a new thread there, what you do is reply to one that most suits your idea.
Here's the link to that area of the forum >>
