Add Neighbours & FriendsBy SmurfyFan
All of your friends on Facebook and GameCenter who are playing Smurfs village Game appear as your neighbours if you are logged into those services and have connected their village to it.
Adding friends using Facebook
To add friends on Facebook, just go to their profile and click on the button “Add as friend” next to their name. If you do not know the person personally, it is a good idea to send them a message with your friend request stating that you want them to be your neighbour in the Smurfsvillage Game so they know why you are requesting their friendship. Once the request has been accepted the person will automatically appear as your neighbour in the game (as long as your are logged into Facebook).
Adding friends using GameCenter
Another way to add neighbours is doing it through GameCenter. Many people prefer that method, because with GameCenter they do not have to give random people access to their Facebook profile just to have them as neighbours in the game.
GameCenter is not available on all iDevices (Apple’s mobile devices). To run GameCenter, your device must have at least the software version 4.0 (iOS 4.0) and be either an iPod touch 2nd generation or higher, an iPhone 3Gs or higher or an iPad. For more information on GameCenter, see Apples page here: http://www.apple.com/game-center/.
If you cannot find the GameCenter icon, just search for Game Center on your device by swiping from the first page to the Home Screen to the right and type GameCenter into the search window as it can be seen in the image below. If you cannot find it, plug your device into iTunes and see which iOS version you have and if a new version is available, do the update. When your device is up to date and supports Game Center it will automatically be installed.
Now open GameCenter and either log into it with your iTunes Account or create a new account. The username is your email address. After you have entered your credentials, press Sign In
If you do not yet have a Game Center ID, click on “Create a New Account” and follow the instructions. You have to choose a nickname. The nickname will be the name of your village and how others can see you (for example on highscore lists). If you want others to add you as their friends, you have to give them the nickname you have chosen before. The name you enter will only be visible by your friends.
Once you are logged in, tap on the “Friends” button at the bottom, and then on the “+” Symbol in the top right corner. There you can add the nicknames of the friends you want to send a request to, a message for them (standard message is … would like to be your friend). Click “send” and your request will be send instantly, if there is a problem with the nickname (for example a typing mistake) you will be informed immediately as well. As soon as the request is accepted, you get a confirmation message and they will show up in your friend list.
If you click on the “Request” button on the bottom you can see all requests that have been send to you and either accept or ignore them.
NOTE: You can only add players playing on the same platform because Android and Apple neighbors are not compatible. You can post add neighbor here with your GC id. If you have a face account or if you are playing on Android, you can post add neighbor message to our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/mysmurfsvillage .
