How to fix the ‘Boot Camp is unsupported on this computer model’ error on Mac

Boot Camp Apple drivers won’t install on your Windows partition on your Mac? Here’s the fix!

Are you needing to install Windows on a partition on your Mac? As much as Apple tries to make it as simple as possible, sometimes errors do occur. Once such error is the “Boot Camp is unsupported on this computer model” error. This is an error that occurs when you try to install the Apple provided Boot Camp drivers whilst running Windows.

The cause of the error

The reason why this error occurs is because Mac you are using to run the Windows partition on is no longer supported by Apple (i.e. they say it’s too old!). Luckily for us, we can ignore what others deem as obsolete and force the installation of the drivers for the Apple specific hardware installed to run things like the camera, Wi-Fi, and bluetooth radios. Here’s how!

Force install or Apple Boot Camp drivers under Windows

Here, we are assuming you have followed the instruction on how to install Windows on your Mac using Boot Camp and have access to the Boot Camp drivers on USB. Once your Windows installation is up and running do the following:

  1. In the Windows Cortana search bar type CMD but do not press the enter key.
  2. Right-click the Command Prompt Desktop app.
  3. Select Run as administrator. In the Command Prompt you’ll need to navigate to the Boot Camp drivers you downloaded when preparing you Mac to install Windows. We will assume that the USB device is mounted in Windows as the “D:” drive.

  4. Type D: and press enter.
  5. Type cd BootCampDriversApple
  6. Press enter. In order to make certain we are in the correct directory we will list the current contents of the directory.
  7. Type dir.
  8. Press enter. You should see a list of Apple related files and one that is called BootCamp.msi. Once confirmed we can go ahead and force the installation.
  9. Type msiexec /i BootCamp.msi.
  10. Press enter.

The installation will now begin. If you encounter a Windows error that the installation may have failed simply dismiss the dialog box and continue.

That’s it! You’ll now be able to use the Apple specific hardware during your Windows usage. Sometimes, however, you’ll get a device that is not supported anymore by Apple but Windows will provide a driver for it regardless. On a more rare occasion you’ll get some hardware that won’t work at all but that seems rarer these days.

Can’t run Boot Camp in High Sierra? Here’s the fix!

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

If you’re having problems setting up Boot Camp on your Mac running macOS High Sierra, here’s what you can do to try and fix it.

Boot Camp is the macOS solution for installing an alternative operating system on your Mac, letting the new OS run natively on your Mac rather than in a virtual machine. However, many macOS High Sierra users have reported trouble creating new Boot Camp partitions on the latest version of Apple’s operating system. For instance, perhaps you get an error telling you that your disk doesn’t have enough space, even though macOS has shown you that, indeed, there is enough.

There are a couple of reasons that this could be happening/. First, you’ve got local snapshots, backups of your Mac stored locally, rather than on your Time Machine disk. These backups are created quickly once every hour, and while activities like downloading files or installing apps shouldn’t be affected by their presence, for some reason, Boot Camp is.

The other problem that you might run into is some kind of file system corruption. Unfortunately, the only solution for this is the wipe your Mac and either perform a fresh installation of macOS or restore from a Time Machine backup.

Here’s what you can do to try to fix your problems with getting Boot Camp to work on macOS High Sierra.

How to delete local snapshots on your Mac

I’ve personally used this method to fix the Boot Camp problem. Unfortunately, it’s a little complicated and requires the use of the macOS Terminal app, but I’m here to walk you through it.

  1. Open Terminal on your Mac.
  2. Type sudo tmutil listlocalsnapshots / and press the Return/Enter key.

  3. Enter your password and press Return/Enter. Note that when you type in your password, nothing will appear inside Terminal, but it’s still working. Your local snapshots should be listed and look something like this: com.apple.TimeMachine.2018-03-21-103127. The important part of each backup is that date, which in this example is 2018-03-21-103127. You’ll need the date number on the end of each backup when you go to delete them in the next step.
  4. Type sudo tmutil deletelocalsnapshots 2018-03-21-103127 replacing the 2018-03-21-103127 with the date of the actual snapshot you’re trying to delete and press Return/Enter.

  5. Repeat Step 4 for any further snapshots you need/want to delete.

Of course, if you perform Step 2 and Terminal doesn’t list any local snapshots, you’re likely looking at a problem like file system corruption. In that case, you’re going to need to reset your Mac.

How to re-install macOS

There are a couple of ways to re-install macOS on your Mac. You can either perform a clean install, after which you can begin manually re-downloading apps and files, or you can re-install macOS and restore from a backup, such as those created by Time Machine.

It’s Finally Luigi Time in ‘Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp [Free] has been running a Super Mario event since March 10th, a day that has been designated MAR10 Day because everyone’s got to be cute these days. A handful of Mario-related items were made available for crafting, including Mario’s hat, a Super Mushroom, and so on. There were some noticeable exclusions, however. As always, poor old Luigi got left out of the spotlight. But worry not, fans of the Best Brother, because as of today? It’s Luigi Time.

Luigi always seems to get the short end of the stick. A perpetual Player 2 to his brother, Luigi couldn’t even catch a break when Nintendo decided to give him an entire year. It ended up being one of the company’s worst in quite some time in spite of all of the great Luigi content. And the less said about recent Luigi coverage on other sites, the better. If you want to show your support for this superstar, you can now craft some Luigi goods by doing tasks for campers and collecting 1-Up Mushrooms. A Luigi hat and Luigi shirt allow you to deck yourself in winning green colors. After that’s done, you can also collect a 1-Up Mushroom decoration, a Question Block, a Floating Block, and a Fire Flower. If you’re willing to shell out some Leaf Tickets, you can also nab a Super Star.

If you haven’t finished grabbing the Mario items, don’t worry. You’re still able to get Super Mushrooms and craft the initial set of objects, though they are a little harder to come by now that they’re sharing with the 1-Up Mushrooms. This current round of items will be available through April 10th, and another wave of Super Mario-related goodies will arrive on March 31st. But do you really need anything else after you have that sweet cap?

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Fishing Tourney: Everything you need to know!

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

ACPC’s first fishing tourney is here. It’s about more than just catching the biggest fish. Reel them in for great new nautical themed furniture!

Chip has made an appearance at Saltwater Shores and he’s here for the fish. Join the Fishing Tourney to earn cool new stuff for your Campsite, like fishing takes, coral accents, and more. This event is very short, lasting just four days. It runs from March 15 – 19. Here’s everything you need to know about how to catch the biggest and most rare fish in Fishing Tourney #1.

Event details

During the Fishing Tourney, you’ll catch special fish at Saltwater Shores (identified by their sparkle). The goal is not to catch all the fish, but to catch a cumulative size of total fish. For each combined size goal you reach, you’ll earn a reward. For example, if you reach 250cm in length for all of the Tourney fish you’ve caught, you’ll earn a Clown Fish Hairpin. The longer the length, the more rewards you earn. This is cumulative. Your measurement does not start over each time you have your fish measured.

The best way to reach the highest cumulative size (4,250 cm and up) is to catch as many fish possible during the Tourney.

You’ll then talk to Chip, who will measure the current round’s catch and reward you with items if you’ve reached the size goals. Prizes range from Sea Throw Nets to Seaweed Screens and tropical fish tanks.

Total fish size of 250, 500, and 750 cm give the following items awarded at random:

  • Clown Fish Hairpin
  • Clown Fish Tank
  • Sea Throw Net

Total fish size of 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750, 2000, 2250, and 2750 cm give the following items awarded at random:

  • Seaweed Screen
  • Coral Bench
  • Surgeonfish Tank
  • 5 Rustic essence
  • 5 Harmonious essence
  • Sea Throw Net

Total fish size of 3000, 3250, 3500,3750, 4000, and 4250 cm give the following items awarded at random:

  • Decorated Coral
  • Barred Knifejaw tank
  • Seaweed Screen
  • 5 Harmonious essence
  • 5 Hip essence

Once you’ve reached 4850 cm, and every 600 cm past that, you’ll be randomly awarded the same list as above. You won’t receive duplicates until you’ve been given at least one of each of the above. After that, you’ll start seeing duplicates of these items.

You can also earn rewards by completing Chips Challenges. These are similar to Timed Goals but are specific to fishing. Once you’ve completed specific goals in Chips Challenge, like catching 45 Squid or a Red Snapper that is 95.5 cm or larger, you’ll earn something special from Chip. Most of these challenges reward items like Tourney Sea Nets and Leaf Tickets, but Chip will also hand over a few furniture items.

Furniture items rewarded in Chips Challenge:

  • Catch 16 Clown Fish – Clown Fish Tank
  • Catch 4 Surgeonfish – Surgeonfish Tank
  • Catch 33 Clown Fish – Seaweed Screen
  • Catch 45 Horse Mackerel – Seaweed Screen
  • Catch 45 Squid – Barred Knifejaw Tank

Leaf Tickets rewarded in Chips Challenge:

  • Catch 8 Barred Knifejaw – 5 Leaf Tickets
  • Catch 4 Red Snapper – 10 Leaf Tickets
  • Catch 45 Olive Flounder – 10 Leaf Tickets

Sea Throw Nets rewarded in Chips Challenge (one net for each goal achieved):

  • Catch 8 Surgeonfish
  • Catch 16 Barred Knifejaw
  • Catch 8 Squid
  • Catch 8 Squid at least 37.0 cm
  • Catch 1 Red Snapper
  • Catch 1 Red Snapper measuring 95.0 cm
  • Catch 8 Olive Flounder
  • Catch 8 Olive Flounder at least 85.0 cm each
  • Catch 8 Horse Mackerel
  • Catch 8 Horse Mackerel at least 420 cm

You’ll also earn one Sparkle Stone for catching 125 Clown Fish.

Check in with the Fishing Tourney every three hours

The Fishing Tourney plays out in rounds similar to the way the campground guests move in cycles. In fact, it’s the exact same as the visitor cycle. Every three hours you’ll be able to fish another round of about seven catches.

Tourney Fishing rounds reset at:

  • 2:00 AM
  • 5:00 AM
  • 8:00 AM
  • 11:00 AM
  • 2:00 PM
  • 5:00 PM
  • 8:00 PM
  • 11:00 PM

Talk to your Campsite visitors

Animals in your Campsite will randomly give you Tourney fish. Talk to them every three hours, too. Remember, the time you talk to a Campsite animal starts when you talk to the first one. The three-hour timer starts after that. It’s different than the Tourney rounds or the campground visitor movement because the timer resets when you talk to an animal at your Campground.

Rent the Golden Rod

If you’ve got Leaf Tickets to spare, I highly recommend spending them on renting the Golden Rod. Every single time you fish, you catch two Tourney fish. Every single time. This always doubles the measurements you’ll collect in each round.

The Golden Rod costs 80 Leaf Tickets, which is not small potatoes, but if you’ve been frugal with your Leaf Tickets, you’ve got a lot to spare. This is the perfect occasion to use them. You’ll complete the Tourney and Chip’s Challenges much faster and be able to start working on duplicate rewards. If you’re hoping for two Coral Benches, this is how to get them.

Only fish at Saltwater Shores for Tourney fish

To be clear, the Fishing Tourney only takes place at Saltwater Shores. Lost Lure Creek will not help you here.

Catch all the fish, not just the sparkly ones

Because Chip’s Challenge includes catching standard fish at Saltwater Shore, you’ll want to catch all the fish you can by the sea, not just the ones for the Tourney.

Chip wants a lot of standard fish, so make sure you spend as much time at Saltwater Sea as you can stand. 45 each of Squid, Horse Mackerel, and Olive Flounder is no easy feat.

Use Tourney Sea Nets

Those Tourney Sea Nets you get as rewards from the Tourney and from Chip’s Challenge? Use them! Use them all up. There is no reason to save them. They don’t work on standard fish.

I personally recommend waiting until you’ve earned a silver trophy before you start using them. It gets more difficult to reach new size goals once you pass that mark.

The great thing about Tourney Sea Nets is that you can use them any time you want, whether you’ve caught all of the fish in the sea with your fishing rod or not.

I also recommend you don’t buy Large Tourney Sea Nets. They don’t produce larger fish, just more of them. Save your Leaf Tickets until toward the end of the Tourney. If you still haven’t completed all of the size goals and Chip’s Challenges, then you can try to make it by buying larger nets.

The difference is from about four fish with the normal sized Tourney Sea Net to about 10 with a Large Tourney Sea Net

The game will tell you when you’ve caught all the Fishing Tourney Fish for the current round

If you don’t see any fish in the sea, or you see fish, but they’re not sparkling, that doesn’t mean the round is over.

You’ll get a clear notification in the game in the form of a thought bubble that you’ve caught all of the fish in the sea for that round. You’ll be directed to talk to Chip at this point.

That doesn’t mean you can’t still catch Tourney Fish, though. Don’t forget, you can use the Tourney Sea Nets any time you want, whether you’ve caught all of the fish in the sea with your fishing rod or not.

Use regular Sea Nets to meet your Red Snapper goal

One of Chip’s Challenges is to catch a Red Snapper that is 95.0 cm or larger. Catching a Red Snapper at all is a difficult task in ACPC, but one so large is even harder. Reddit users noted that using a standard Sea Net seems to yield more Red Snapper than normal and larger Red Snapper, at that.

I tested this theory and caught a 97.5 cm Red Snapper with my first standard net.

It’s not a guarantee. Some Reddit commenters noted that they tried it without success.

If you’ve got a lot of standard Sea Nets in stock, go ahead and give it a try. You might get lucky!

Don’t sell your sea fish in your Market Box

Do yourself a favor and don’t drop Olive Flounder, Squid, or Horse Mackerel into your Market Box for sale. Guess what? Everyone else is playing the same Fishing Tourney and will have dozens of those fish in their inventory, too. If you run out of room, sell them to the Market for 10 Bells each instead. You don’t want to end up with a Market Box full of fish you can’t sell.

‘Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp’ Has a New Fishing Event Running Right Now

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

I’ve been a little grumbly at times about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp [Free], I’ll admit. Perhaps I’ve just been frustrated that what seemed like a slam-dunk franchise for a mobile game seemed to almost completely miss the point. But I also haven’t exactly been quiet about my main gripe with the game, which comes down to just how little there is to do in it. Even the events have mostly had you doing the same old things and getting rewards. The gardening event was neat the first time, but now that we’ve had a few, it’s getting a little boring. Well, the latest update to the game hit yesterday, and it seems to have brought a new type of event with it: a fishing tournament.

Sort of, anyway. Unlike in the mainline Animal Crossing games, you’re not actually competing with anyone here. Instead, the goal is to catch as many special tournament fish as possible. The total quantity of the fish you deliver is calculated when you hand your latest catch in, and you’ll be rewarded with prizes at various intervals. One interesting note is that we can see a new type of monetization with this event. The host of the event, Chip, will rent you his special golden fishing rod, which allows you to catch twice as many fish each time. The cost? 80 Leaf Tickets. Well, it’s something to do with Leaf Tickets, I suppose. It’s too early to tell how the event is balanced, but it may be the case that you’ll need that rod to get every prize.

Also interesting is that this event is overlapping the month-long event being run in celebration of MAR10 Day. We’re still in the first part of that event, which has players collecting Super Mushrooms to craft special Mario-related items. The Super Mushrooms aren’t quite as easy to come by as the special items in previous events, but the pace is slow enough that most players should be able to get the things they want without too much trouble. The trick will be in balancing the two on-going events, I suppose.

This all follows on the heels of the game’s latest update, which added a few new features. First of all, fish and insects you catch will now have a size attached to them, and your best catch of each type will be recorded. Gardening is easier than ever now as you can harvest, water, and plant in batches rather than the maddeningly slow one-at-a-time method from before. The update also fixed a few bugs and presumably laid the framework for the current event.

Only time will tell if Nintendo can get Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp in the shape it needs to be in to last as a long-term app, but I will say that I’m at least a little interested in the new event. Perhaps once Nintendo has a good mix of activities to bounce between for events, it’ll be a little easier to keep players engaged.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Leif’s Spring Flowers event: Everything you need to know!

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

There are only five days left in Leif’s Spring Flowers event. Capture those ladybugs and get new Campground landscapes!

Leif has come to visit your Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Campground, but he’s here on a mission. He wants to collect rare ladybugs. He needs your help to collect as many as possible. Leif’s Spring Flowers event runs from February 27 through March 8, so you don’t have a whole lot of time to get through the entire event. Here’s everything you need to know about how to catch rare ladybugs and earn all of Leif’s special Campground decorations.

The basics

The goal is to catch as many rare ladybugs as possible. You’ll earn rewards for catching a certain number for each task. For example, once you’ve completed the first Pink Flower Ladybug task, you’ll get a Floral Canal for your Campground.

To catch a rare ladybug in your garden, plant seasonal clover and sleeping beauty seeds. You can buy white clover seeds from Lloid and you can earn clover and sleeping beauty seeds by completing requests.

You’ll also earn rewards for sharing rare ladybugs with friends. Visit a friend’s garden and leave a ladybug on a flower (hint: It doesn’t have to be a clover or sleeping beauty) for your friend. Most of the time (but not every time), Lottie will reward you with seeds whenever you share.

You’ll also earn seeds from completing tasks around the campground. So, be sure to continue your regular camper quests to earn those extra seeds.

The event takes place in two waves with four different types of flowers and ladybugs and four different runs of quests.

Wave 1: Pink and Yellow Ladybugs

The first wave of Leif’s Spring Flowers event starts on February 27 and runs until the event ends on March 8. During this time, you’ll be able to collect rare pink and yellow ladybugs from seasonal white clover and yellow sleeping beauty flowers. Below are the tasks and rewards for the first wave.

Pink Ladybugs

  • Collect 3 – Flower Canal (first one)
  • Collect 6 – 20 Flower Food
  • Collect 9 – Floral Canal (second one)
  • Collect 12 – 5 Leaf Tickets
  • Collect 15 – Spring Flower Crown
  • Collect 20 – 10 Hip essence
  • Collect 25 – 15 Cool essence
  • Collect 30 – 60 Flower Food
  • Collect 40 – Floral Stepping Stones (first one)
  • Collect 60 – 30 Natural essence
  • Collect 70 – Shamrock Blazer
  • Collect 80 – Floral Canal (third one)

Yellow Ladybugs

  • Collect 3 – 20 Flower Food
  • Collect 6 – Floral Canal Corner (first one)
  • Collect 9 – 10 Cute Essence
  • Collect 12 – Floral Canal Corner (second one)
  • Collect 15 – 10 Hip essence
  • Collect 20 – Floral Stepping Stone (second one)
  • Collect 25 – 60 Flower Food
  • Collect 30 – Floral Canal Corner (third one)
  • Collect 40 – Spring Garden (foreground of Campground)
  • Collect 50 – Round Spring Flower Bed (first one)
  • Collect 60 – 20 Leaf Tickets

Wave 2: Purple and Navy Ladybugs

The second wave of Leif’s Spring Flowers event starts on March 3 and runs until the event ends on March 8. You have less time to collect rare purple and navy ladybugs from pink sleeping beauty flowers, which only become available when the second wave starts.

Purple Ladybugs

  • Collect 3 – 5 Sporty essence
  • Collect 6 – 10 Cute essence
  • Collect 9 – Giant Clovers (first one)
  • Collect 12 – Floral Canal (fourth one)
  • Collect 15 – 60 Flower food
  • Collect 20 – Round Spring Flower Bed (second one)
  • Collect 25 – Floral Stepping Stone (third one)
  • Collect 30 – Giant Clovers (second one)
  • Collect 40 – Floral Stepping Stone (fourth one)
  • Collect 50 – 25 Leaf Tickets

** Navy Ladybugs**

  • Collect 3 – Floral Canal (fifth one)
  • Collect 6 – Floral Canal Corner (fourth one)
  • Collect 9 – 15 Leaf Tickets
  • Collect 12 – 60 Flower Food
  • Collect 15 – Giant Windflower (first one)
  • Collect 20 – Round Spring Flower Bed (third one)
  • Collect 25 – Giant Windflower (second one)
  • Collect 30 – Floral Swinging Bench
  • Collect 35 – Spring Garden (middle ground of Campground)
  • Collect 45 – 1 Sparkle Stones

Important note: You can’t keep rare ladybugs or seasonal flowers after the event ends, so don’t try to stock up. Share ladybugs with friends as often as possible and trade stocks of clovers and sleeping beauties to Lloid in exchange for flower beds and crafting materials. Don’t hold onto anything.

Plant and harvest regularly

Rare ladybugs spawn randomly on flowers. If you plant 10 white clovers, for example, you might only spawn five or six pink ladybugs.

Ladybugs will only be attracted to a freshly bloomed flower. It won’t leave once bloomed — you can take your time trying to catch it, but new ladybugs will not spawn on an existing flower.

If you don’t see a ladybug on a new bloom, you’ll never see one (unless a friend drops one for you). Harvest it and plant a new one. There is almost never a reason to leave a flower unharvested in your garden. Almost never…

Leave a couple of un-harvested flowers behind so your friends can share ladybugs with you — maybe just five. If you harvest everything, your garden won’t have any sharable blooms for three hours. This is important for both you and your friends. You get additional ladybugs to meet your event goals and your friends get seeds they can plant. Do everyone a favor and leave a few flowers un-harvested in your garden.

You can see whether a ladybug in your garden is from a friend by checking the Visitors section of your Friend list. If Penny left you a ladybug, it’ll appear under her name. I always check the Visitors list first and repay friends for leaving me ladybugs by doing the same.

You can also see if your friends’ flowers have room for ladybug sharing by taping their name in the Friends list. If there is room for your ladybugs, it’ll show “Sharing: [x number] Ready” next to their name. This makes it easier at a glance to know who to visit now and who to check back with later.

Stop hoarding your ladybugs, give them away!

Share your rare ladybugs with friends. Hoarding them does you no good. Give them to friends in order to earn more seeds and friend powder from Leif. You’ll get decorations from Leif for the ladybugs you catch, but you don’t have to keep them in your inventory.

Your progress is tallied in the Event section of your garden. When you give ladybugs away, the total doesn’t drop. They also disappear from your inventory after the event ends, so keeping them to yourself doesn’t do anyone any good.

On average, Leif will give you one flower seed for each ladybug you share. This isn’t exact, however. Sometimes, she doesn’t give you any.

Pro Tip: You can share rare ladybugs with friends on their non-rare plants, too. Help friends out that haven’t planted any seasonal flowers yet!

Set a timer to check your garden

Though you should be able to get all of Leif’s decorations fairly easily with regular gameplay, you don’t want to miss out on any opportunities to water and harvest your plants in a timely manner. To make sure you’re always on the right track, set a timer for every three hours. You don’t have to run through the entire campground’s requests, but you can make sure to collect those flowers and replant as soon as possible.

Don’t ask for Lloid’s help until the second wave hits

Asking for Lloid’s help will guarantee that you’ll catch a ladybug from the flower, but it comes at a hefty price (10 Leaf Tickets for each ladybug). Based on the last garden event, you won’t need his help catching the ladybugs from the first wave — the pink and yellow ladybugs. There’s plenty of time for them.

The second wave, however, is much shorter and you’re still working with seeds from the first wave. So you’re not getting as many pink sleeping beauty seeds as you need, added to the fact that navy and purple ladybugs spawn and are catchable at a much lower rate.

Save your Leaf Tickets for Wave 2. I didn’t need to spend any Leaf Tickets to earn all of the rewards for Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival, but I did spend about 70 Leaf Tickets getting through the final few tasks in Rover’s Garden event.

Plant a garden full of flowers before bed

If you plant a garden full of white clovers, yellow sleeping beauties, or pink sleeping beauties before you go to bed, you’ll wake up in the morning with a fresh set of flowers and rare ladybugs.

Planting flowers that bloom overnight will also help your friends that live across the globe. While you’re sleeping, they’re playing, and they’d love to drop off a ladybug or two in your garden.

Hoard your flowers!

You can trade harvested flowers to Lloid for flower boxes, exclusive clothing items, and crafting materials. You can exchange 10 white clovers or 10 yellow sleeping beauties for a spring flower crown (you can get up to six flower crowns total).

I also recommend trading as many yellow and pink sleeping beauties as possible for essences as many times as you can, since those items are hard to come by in the game and are expensive to replace with Leaf Tickets if you want to craft something when you don’t have enough materials.

Previous garden events

We’re including information about previous garden events so you can catch up on what’s gone on and study up on what to expect in the future.

Lottie’s Gothic Festival

  • Wave 1: Gothic and golden gothic bats

The first wave of Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival starts on February 1 and runs until the event ends on February 9. During this time, you’ll be able to collect rare gothic and golden gothic bats from gothic red and gothic purple roses.

  • Wave 2: Ruby and diamond gothic bats

The second wave of Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival starts on February 5 and runs until the event ends on February 9. You have less time to collect rare ruby and diamond gothic bats from gothic fusion roses, which only become available when the second wave starts.

Important note: You can’t keep rare bats or seasonal flowers after the event ends, so don’t try to stock up. Share bats with friends as often as possible and trade stocks of roses to Lloid in exchange for flower beds and crafting materials. Don’t hold onto anything.

Rover’s Garden Safari

  • Wave 1: Diamond and Topaz butterflies

The first wave of Rover’s Garden Safari event starts on January 11 and runs all the way through until January 21, when the event ends. During this time, you’ll be collecting rare Diamond and Topaz butterflies by planting blue and red dahlia seeds.

  • Wave 2: Winter and Gold butterflies

The second wave of Rover’s Garden Safari event starts on January 16 and runs until the event ends on January 21. You have less time to collect rare Winter and Gold butterflies from white dahlias, which only become available when the second wave starts.

Important note: You can’t keep rare butterflies or seasonal flowers after the event ends, so don’t try to stock up. Share butterflies with friends as often as possible and trade stocks of dahlias to Lloid in exchange for flower beds and crafting materials. Don’t hold onto anything.
