    Default Issues with the new achievements

    The major issue with the new achievements is that it doesn’t count all of your progress over the years BEFORE the update.

    For example, I have completed well over 1000 surgeries pre-update but am only 3% on “the doctor”

    Same goes for other achievements like crazy farmer, millionaire, and consumer, super science, providers will provide, and a bunch of other ones.

    Yeah, sucks to start over. I would be level 125 if they counted the xp from when I got 100. The grind is on again I guess.

    How do you expect them to give you the achievements if they haven't been logging/counting each single thing you're doing?
    If anything, you should blame seth/ham for not implementing it when they brought surg, crime, chemsynth, whatever.

    Just pointing out from a technical side.
    There could be a fallback though, like amount of caduceus although that could cause problems because of double bonus.

    I guess but they must have some sort of counter since they needed to count for the lower tier achievements right?

    That doesn’t seem like s good solution.

    I guess what I’m saying is the thousands of hours people have put into this game literally don’t count for these achievements and that doesn’t seem right.

    I’m sure TK’s answer was enough. There’s no other reason other than: they weren’t counting these things in the first place. So how would they know if you did 1000+ surgeries or not?

    Some people behind support are better or lazier than others, confirmed by NekoRei. That’s not a good support imo

    Obviously these things are counted, how else would you get the prior achievements?

    Lemme be even more technical

    1- It's possible it just stops counting after tier 3 achievement which is extremely likely as each achievement store data for itself

    2- Even if it doesn't, a reminder that the previous achievement system is broken, as in, achievement 1-100 each store data about their state (aka point 1), and that 100+ is other internal data for players, so they couldn't directly add new achievements as such slots were already taken, not for achievements so that was bad game design
    They had to write yet another, second achievement system to go alongside the older achievements, so its very possible that it just cannot read the data from previous achievements.

    TLDR: Each achievement can store data. Once it's completed, the data for the achievement stops incrementing. It's just simple logic anyway, if they were able to use previous data, they would have.

    Exception being Mad Shopper, which most likely has a global counter for every player for total gems used.

    Yeah... it's pretty suck tbh. I caught 400+ ghosts on Harvest Moon Fest and the achievement comes after that.
    Quitted growtopia and forums, but I'm still active on Forumers United discord server.

    As Nenkaai has already mentioned, sadly, the old achievement system was not scale able and we needed to make a new system to incorporate new achievements. The downside was that we don't have tracking of any task that were performed before the new system went live.

    Damn, four years of progress for these achievements that take hundreds and hundreds of hours down the drain.

    The rewards probably aren’t that great because they probably don’t want us to abuse 2nd accounts anyways

    Yeah exactly, it’s obvious that they do keep track because I also got the mad shopper achievement when the update came out meaning that if that worked, why don’t the counters for every other sector of growtopia?

    I'd like to see a reply about this from the devs too. We as players cannot know all about this.
