Mill in text mode

Mill is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 35.

Players can 'pay to play' Mill from level 33 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 35 and unlock it for free through normal game play.

Mill is the only painting currently available to investigate in the game. The Mill is one of five regular pictures that require special items to play. In addition to energy points, a certain number of Ladybugs are required for each play of Mill.The number of Ladybugs needed depends on the level the picture is at. Ladybugs can be given as rewards for successfully investigating Ancient Library, given as daily bonus rewards for visiting friends, given out by Sphere of Miracles award, given out by the Pyramid of Wonder award and given as rewards for combining certain collections. Carrots required to play the Illusionist's Room can be given as rewards for successful investigations of Mill (from Detective Level onward). From the Diary:

"I finally restored the picture with the mills. Besides for them, high mountains can be seen in the distance. A beautiful painting. But it has been two hundred years since the Order has used paintings for the magical quet. Honestly, this will be my first experience of entering a painting. The magic picture still looks like a reality, but I wonder what feelings are waiting for me inside the picture?"
