States and Collections
A state consists of several image collections. Two collections will be instantly unlocked when you visit the state for the first time. You will unlock more collections by completing the state multiple times.
A state can be completed in Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond.
It can also be closed if you have the postcard for that state.
UNESCO Sites Albums
UNESCO Sites Albums are designed to provide an in-depth look at the UNESCO sites in the United States, allowing players to explore these sites in detail. Each UNESCO site is subdivided into several distinct image collections. It is important to note that the rare images found in the UNESCO Sites Albums are the same as those found in the "States" albums. This means that rare images remain the same, regardless of the album category you choose to explore, whether it's for UNESCO sites or States.
The album is where all image collections are listed and organized by state or UNESCO sites. It's possible to receive duplicate images, and collections can be completed multiple times.
Completing a Collection
When you have gathered all the images from a collection, a 'Complete Collection' button appears.
By completing this action, you are rewarded with additional images, Miles, seeds, etc...
You are free to complete the collection again each time you complete the corresponding state.
Completing a State or UNESCO Site
Once you have successfully completed all the collections of a state, a 'Complete State' button appears, allowing you to close that state. This action rewards you with additional images, Miles, seeds, etc...
Furthermore, you have the option to restart the collections of that state you have already completed.
It's worth noting that you can complete the state at different levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond, each offering specific rewards. However, it's essential to remember that you can close the same state a maximum of three times. With each closure, one copy of each image from that state is sacrificed to progress.
Closing a State or UNESCO Site
To close a State, two conditions must be met: you must have completed all the collections of the State at the Diamond level, and you must have obtained the Postcard for that State. The Postcard can be obtained through a friend's gift or by purchasing it directly from the Album page.
When a State is closed, it stands out on the Map of the United States with a different color, signaling your achievement. It's worth noting that you will receive fewer images from this State after its closure.
All closed States are archived in the 'Closed States' category on the Album page.
If you close all the States available in the game, you will become a VIP, the ultimate distinction in the game!
Every time you manage to complete a State, you earn a corresponding Postcard as a reward.
It's essential to note that this Postcard is not counted in your main image collection. Only Postcards that your friends give you contribute to your Postcard collection. However, you can gift it to one of your friends.
For your friends to receive a Postcard from you, they must have unlocked the respective State and not yet have received that specific Postcard. Postcards are grouped in the 'Postcards' category on the Album page, where you can view and manage them.
