Neighbours and Gifts

By

The game can connect to either Apples Game Center or Facebook or both. When connected to one of these services all friends who play the Smurf’s Village game as well can be seen as neighbours and their villages can be visited. Every neighbour can be given one gift every 24 hours.

To enable this function either log into Facebook by going from the main menu to options – manage friends and enter the Facebook credentials, to enable Game Center log into the Game Center app on the device before opening the game. It is also possible to be logged into both services at the same time.

In the village, click on the button in the bottom left corner of the village, after that a map with other villages and the features “random village” and “featured village” is opened.
By clicking on “featured village” nine villages can be seen that have been added by Capcom (the developer) as specially featured villages that everyone can see.

The button random village offers the option to randomly visit a village from other players. The villages can be seen, but no presents can be left for the creator of the village, moreover their names do not appear, just the banner “random village”.

On the right side from the map the friends that are connected to the village are shown, to visit that village just click on the banner. Once in the village, a button on the bottom right side appears, clicking that gives the option to choose a gift. This can be placed anywhere within the village and the creator will see it as soon as he opens the game again.
To add new neighbours the person has to be added as a friend either in Game Center or on Facebook, as soon as the friend request is accepted, the new neighbour will show up on the map.

Under the banner of the neighbours map with their names and current levels, the exact number of Smurfs, animals and other characters that are living inside the village are shown.

    Why am I getting an 'OOPS!' Message saying that there's a problem getting village data and to check your Internet connection and try again when trying to gift friends. I am connected as I play other games that need an Internet connection. It has been happening for a few days now . . . very frustrating!

      You are not the only one with this error, we have had several reports. No official information has become available regarding this, it might just be a server issue and will fix itself in a couple of days. If you keep getting the error for a longer period you should open a ticket with Beeline support.

    How I can add friends? I'm playing on Android. I connected my game with Facebook, add friends on Facebook and haven't friends in the game. What I have to do now?

    • Smurfette says:

      Do you friends play on Android as well? You will not be able to see iOS players. Also, from the game in the main menu go to options, then manage friends to make sure you are logged into Facebook

      • simons says:

        Yes, my friends play on Android and I logged into Facebook

        • Stroumpfette says:

          There is a bug within the SV Facebook app that sorts your FB friends by date added to FB and their FB id serial number. If your friends who play the game sort after the 20th friend on your numerically sorted friends list, you won't see them. One remedy is to create a second FB id just for gaming, but since doing that violates Facebook's Terms of Service we can't officially advise you to do that.

    How do I disconnect my Facebook contacts from Smurf Village? In 'Manage Friends' there is no option to disconnect from Facebook. The connection to Facebook was accidentally turned on when I went to connect Game Centre as I had not been able to connect to neighbours for a week. After turning off & on my phone, I now have neighbours from both Game Centre & Facebook. I only want to connect to Game Center neighbours as I always have been. Grateful for any help.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Go in to your Facebook account from a Web Browser, not from the mobile app. Go to Settings/Apps and find the SV app listed. Then remove that app from within your Facebook apps. That should break the connection. If that doesn't work, please let us know. I'm the admin for Android, so this is the only way I know of to break the link, but one of our other admins might know something more. Please let us know whether it worked or not. :)

      • Poddy says:

        Hi Stroumpfette,
        Thanks for your help! I went into the web browser version of Facebook on a Mac then Settings/Apps, however SV did not appear there. I then went to the iPhone version of Facebook App then Setting/Apps & SV was listed there (strange that these two FB versions did not match up). Anyway, I removed the App from Facebook, restarted SV on my iPhone & friends from Facebook were removed from my neighbours in SV, so thank you!

        • Stroumpfette says:

          I'm glad you found it. That must be one of the nuances between how the iOS and Android apps interface with Facebook. That, or Facebook's constantly changing interface has changed…again. I'm just glad you were able to turn Facebook friends off.

    Can you send a friend a gift from you VIP selection?

    Add me on game centre. I always gift daily. Gamecentre Name: – KING PAPI –
    Please add me and leave me potted flowers. Thanks

    • Smurfette says:

      Please do not use all Caps, that means shouting on the internet and nobody like to be shouted at. I have edited your comment accordingly.

  7. smurf rb says:

    I added a few friends on facebook last year they gave me daily gifts but I couldn't see them on my neighbours screen and I couldn't give them gifts.

    Why is that?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      If you have a lot of friends, the Smurf Village Facebook can only see the first 20 friends you have even if they do not play the game. Some people create a second Facebook account just for gaming, but since doing so it's a violation of Facebook's TOS, we cannot officially advise you to do that.

  8. Cassandra says:

    Someone please help!

    I play smurfs with my son. we both have an FB…I show up as his friend, and he can leave me gifts…but on my phone he does not show up for me to visit his village!!!

    Please help. The little guy leaves me daily gifts, and I'd like to do the same for him!

    Thank you guys.

    • Smurfette says:

      Are you logged into Facebook from your game? Go to Options -> Manage friends from the main menu and check. If you are logged in you might want to logout and back in to see if that helps.

  9. Would love some neighbors for ANDROID. Will gift when I can actually see my neighbors, which isn't all the time for some reason.

  10. LauraA says:

    I can't visit my neighbours village..when o want to visit appear me the NexT messeage : there is a problem getting village data..what's the problem?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      It could be the Beeline network timing out. Try again later. If the problem persists, contact the developer at http://beeline-i.com/support.php

    Add me on GCid: frozzy24.

    I posted more than a year ago using an android device which I no longer play on, I'm sorry if this counts as a double post, but I need new neighbors for iOS. Also, if anyone can point me in the direction on how to visit FB neighbors, my game just shuts off if I try to visit them. And I have the red circle with the diagonal line through it next to every neighbor. Can anyone tell me what this indicates. I've been leaving gifts for my 3 neighbors but nothing in return to date. I got my iPhone 5c for Christmas and still learning about iOS. Thanks in advance.

    • Smurfette says:

      The red circle lets you "hide" a friend. In the options menu, under manage friends you can add them back. Its if you don't want to see someone's village anymore (for example because they stopped playing) but don't want to delete them altogether as a friend. This is only available on the iOS version.
      As for the Facebook neighbors, you can only see the ones that play on iOS, you won't be able to see the old Android villages anymore. To see them, go to Options, Manage Friends and log into Facebook. If it doesn't work you have to open a ticket with Beeline.
      P.S. don't worry about double posting, this does not count, it just relates to people posting (nearly) identical comments multiple times, sometimes within a few minutes.

    • King papi says:

      I added you and you don't send gifts. Pretty sad tbh

  14. Pixie727 says:

    How do I know when friends (other than my hubby) leave gifts at my Village.
    I daily visit my friends' Villages and water their plants and leave gifts but with the exception of one bolt I have not seen any gifts. Maybe I need new friends. Please add me if you would leave gifts and I'll do the same.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Load your friends and neighbors map before tapping the gifts you see in your village. Sometimes, but not always,when you tap the gift, it will then tell you who left it.

  15. Mullinaround says:

    I have a friend on game center that can visit my village and leave a gift but for some reason I cannot visit their village. When I click on the icon on the bottom left, I see visit random village, my village, and featured village but that's all…. Can anyone offer some advise??

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Did you add him as a friend on Game Center? He can see you because he added you, but you also may have to add him.

  16. Johnny says:

    Please add me GC: Dribble222

    I will always gift daily

  17. Emma L says:

    Thanks!

  20. hai says:

    I'm using android. Though ive connected my smurf village to Facebook, my friends list dosent appear nor can my friends see my village. What is the problem here?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      There is a bug with Facebook that doesn't allow you to see all of your friends. Some players create a separate Facebook account for gaming, but since that is a violation of Facebook's TOS, we cannot advise you to do that.

  21. Stan Bells says:

    I have a friend with several dozen flowers, and I've been clicking on each bed individually to water them. The other day I accidentally exited my friend's village with one still unwatered … When I went back in to get it, the one leftover no longer needed watering. Since then, I've just been clicking on one flower bed, and when I exit and re-enter the friends village it looks like this is watering ALL flowers with just one click. Can you confirm that this is the case?

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Yes, apparently, that's an old trick that one of our other Admins knew about. I've been playing for almost 2 years, and I just learned something new. Thanks for asking! :)

  22. Scar Lett says:

    I have android, and I'd like to know the name of the person who gave me a gift instead of someone. Could you work on it? Thanks

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You may not be aware this is a fan site run by volunteers and not affiliated with Beeline. That said, you can see who gave you the gift if you access your friends and neighbors network and load the map before you tap on any gifts. About 90% of the time loading the map will change the "Someone left you a gift" message to the actual name of the player who left you the gift.
