From the makers of Candy Crush Saga, Paradise Bay is King’s newest instalment to their ever-growing library of games. Similar to other games like Farmville and Hay Day, Paradise Day is about building and decorating your own island, expanding it, and gain experience by completing missions.
Since this is about building and decorating an island, let’s analyze the in-game’s buildings and their functions.
The Island Workshop
This is where players build useful items for collecting resources and helping other characters in their tasks. You can build more than one workshop as you advance.
These are the following items you can make in the Island Workshop and its purpose:
- Fishing Net – for catching shrimp, fishes, and crabs to give to your pet (turtle)
- Basket – for collecting seashells and sea glasses to give to your pet (otter)
- Bucket – unlocks at level 32
- Backpack – for making ores (iron and silver) to give to your pet (mole)
- Fishing nets trades well in Wesley’s Exports that allows you to sell items to other players in the game to earn coins. You can sell it at max value (28 coins per fish), so always have excess fishing nets. You’ll also need it to catch aquatic animals that can be turned to grilled shrimps or grilled fish in the Grill building.
- Iron ores can be turned into nails, needles, and cutlery in the Blacksmith building.
This is where players can cook their meals. Items you can make in this building are the following:
- Grilled Pineapple
- Grilled Fish
- Spicy Grilled Shrimp
- Grilled Shrimp
- Grilled pineapple is probably the least popular item since it is very common and very easy to make, so it’s a good idea not to make any until you really need it.
- Grilled fish is also a very common item that is popular at the Trade Post and they are quick to produce. The fishing net takes around two minutes, another two minutes to catch a fish, and grilling it takes about ten minutes, so in less than fifteen minutes, you can get one made. It’s a good idea to produce a lot of grilled fish to sell it in Wesley’s Exports for extra moolah.
- Grilled shrimp is a difficult item to produce. You need to grow a lemon tree to produce a lemon (which is a requirement and to increase the grilled shrimp’s value). Lemon trees take six hours to grow, so the production time depends on how many trees you have. As a suggestion, do not sell them at Wesley’s Exports and save it for the Trade Post instead.
This is where players can produce items such as:
- Heavy Rope
- Sail – a Bazaar Recipe that is available after level 16 and costs one pearl
This building requires mostly cotton that will be used on the daily bulletin board tasks or for some missions like Finn’s branch escape.
- Threads and heavy ropes are relatively quick and easy to produce so it’s best to make some when you need them for Trade Post.
- Cloth is an ingredient for sandals and tropical shirt from the Island Outfitters building. You can also sell them for some extra coins at the Trade Post. Save some as you’ll need them when a character requests it from the Trade Post.
This is where players exchange goods and complete missions for coins or experience points. You can also increase your relationship with a character if you successfully made a trade with them so you can unlock special goods or items.
- The maximum number allowed per trade request is six.
- You can delete a trade request to show new ones, but there is a 15-minute waiting time.
- Choosing trades that requires up to three items are easier to complete.
- The Trade Post is your main source of income until you can start selling on Wesley’s Exports. Just trade with the characters in the game and sell unused items at Wesley’s Exports.
This is where players can sell their goods to other players; however, there are certain amount of items you can put in a barrel to sell, so you’ll have to wait until someone buys from their barrels to start selling again.
- You can make quick money by selling products slightly lower than its market value to quickly dispose them and to give more space in your inventory.
- Even your Facebook friends can buy your items.
- Wesley will buy your items if it didn’t sell to other players.
This building is used to create the following items:
- Barrel – for shipping goods to other players
- Board – for completing missions and producing simple items
- Bamboo Raft – a secret recipe from the Bazaar
- Since the production time for building a board is two minutes, it is recommended that you produce it only if needed for trade requests in the Trade Post or from characters at the Dock to save space for other items.
- Barrels are a hot selling item in Wesley’s Exports, so produce a few of them once you have access to it.
The Tiki Bar
This building is where islanders hang out to quench their thirst with drinks such as:
- Pineapple Juice
- Coconut Milk
- Vanilla Smoothie
- Pomegranate Punch
- The pomegranate punch requires sugar cane to make which takes three hours to grow, so it is recommended that you stock at least two of those for trade requests.
- Turn coconuts into coconut milk and sell them in Wesley’s Exports for some big cash.
- The pineapple juice is the least popular item in the group.
In this building, you can produce the following items:
- Nails can be sold to other players in Wesley’s Exports.
- Needles are used to make sandals and tropical hats that sell pretty fast in Wesley’s Exports and only takes ten minutes to make.
- You can build more than one blacksmith as you progress later on.
This building is where you make coffees such as:
- Vanilla Latte
- Iced Coffee
- Spicy Mocha
- Vanilla latte requires coconut milk which is hard to produce, so it is recommended to keep them for trading at Dock or for Trade Post request.
- Espresso is a hot selling item at Wesley’s Exports, so sell them at their highest price.
This is where you make apparels such as:
- Tropical Shirt
- Shell Necklace
- Sarong – a Bazaar recipe
- All items in this building are heavily traded at the Docks.
- All items takes more than an hour to produce.
- Items in these building can be traded for map pieces, gems or items for storage upgrade from NPC characters.
Paradise Bay Tips
- Always survey the island for special items such as upgrade materials for your storages.
- Upgrade the dock as soon as possible as this will allow you to trade more often with characters that may reward you with upgrade materials for your warehouse.
- Trees you grow can only be harvested three times before chopping them down. You need axes to chop down trees (and hammers to remove stones on the island).
- You can produce items immediately when it is less than thirty seconds until completion.
- To help speed up leveling, add more plants and animals to get more available resources.
- Never trade away the pearls that you get from turtles as it will used later in the bazaar for making recipes.
