Time change cheat punishment (Closed)
Does the game actually punish players on the ipod touch for the time change???
Answer from: ashley
Yes u get punished. you can use the time cheat for as long as u want but as soon as u out it bk n real time they tell u that u have been cheating using the time cheat and that if u are caught again ur staff n tourists will "leave" you. idk what happens if u get caught a second time though. haven't tried it yet.
Answer from: brian
No punishment just warnings and threats..

If you advance 2 days then set your phone back all buildings take 48 hours or longer to earn money
Answer from: meech
Here is how it works. you can use thetime cheat for as long as you like, but once you return ur phone to the current date u will be warned about cheating. also as mentioned above, your timers on ur buildings will be set so u cannot collect until you reach the date u time tricked to. to fix that you must place your building in storage and then replace it on the map, then the timers will be reset. please note this will not work on second pier, so it is not wise to time trick past the repair of the second dock. u may conduct the time cheat without penalty twice, after that your acount will be severly hindered
Answer from: NikkiH
To avoid the delay mentioned by smiles you must wait until all buildings need repair, the repair process resets thee timer on that building

Hey meech...what happens if i time cheat after i've repaired the second pier?
Answer from: Dyer's Island
Hey, been playing for a long time, been working the time cheat for a while, after the last update i started to get warnings... here's how i use the time cheat (ipad) i set the ipad to airplane mode (taking it off any online clock) then collect all my rent, and move the clock ahead 4 to 6 hours, collect all the rent again, but i never fix anything... i keep advancing the clock, taking the rent until the entire island needs repair (including the bank and the business center). i usually collect about 2 weeks worth of money and pastieres. i then set the clock back to about a month before today's date... i get a warning about the time cheat, i use 3 pasteries to fix everything and then advance the clock and collect the rent and pastiers until the date is right. only draw back you can't repair the second pier, and you loose the treasure chests until you catch up with the advanced date. today i got a 3rd warning (my mix up on clock advance) and i got a warning that sounded dire, just wondering if anyone got the 3rd warning and what happens now? love the game, i have a kick ass island i justs wish i could visit it sometime!
Answer from: Narrell
I had a mix up changing my time zone (time zone was set to the wrong country and was causing problems) i didn't know this would effect the game (didn't know about the time cheat as i had only been playing for 3 days ),i changed the time zone setting 3 times (clumsy fingers on one occasion). the next day when i went to play i found out i couldn't visit my friends (as they had been deleted), i tried to get my friends back but got a warning saying i had used the time cheat many times and my game was now limited. i can no longer add friends, i don't get the treasure chests or limited edition buildings anymore, and i can not earn the credits for achievements. i ended up deleting the game, then resetting my ipad and reinstalling the game, still i get the error message. so if anyone knows how to fix this, i would be grateful as i did enjoy my short time playing this game. and i'm annoyed that this happened without me even trying to cheat. :o(

To dyers island i did it and now i can't use it!! ever time i try to get into the game the screen gies black and it sais that i need to reset it back to the correctvdate even though its on the right date how do i fix this??
Answer from: Vanessa
I had the 3rd warning! i had no access to the islands of my friends .. everything who involving the internet i can not access in the game. the visitors not speak to me: s anyone know how to fix it without losing the game or having to start again? pff. thank you
Answer from: jedea(ee363f)
There is no way to fix it again. ive tried the time cheating 3 times, and get a warning thay says im limited to the game. but still i can visit, add, clean, send gifts to all my friends. also allowed to use gift codes and friend codes. If you wanna do time cheating again. make sure your phone is offline. do not repair any damaged building until it all has to be repaired. once u get a warning, the accumulation of all the building will depend on how long you have advance the day, mine turn out to be 742 hrs. to fix it, u have to put ur buildings in the store one by one or as many as you can and place it again in the island, it will reset the time, so you can ho back to the normal time collecting ur incomes, but not to the second pier. do it at your own risk!
Answer from: meg1993
This happened to me too. I only used the time cheat twice and the second time i went to the game a notification came up and ever since (which was a year ago) i have not had visitors to my island. so effort to reset as i am on level 27
Answer from: big D
Ipad says "please set time and date correctly " I can't think of what to do. Now,I have a solution that worked for me. I Manually set the date one year back. Now,I can play
