  3. Even though I am an android player, I still wanted to see if I could try getting the free rocket! I see this morning that the upgraded Q Hotel is missing from the event items. Does this mean android players only have to restore all 3 buildings? Or is this something that I am only experiancing? Or is the upgraded Q Hotel something they are taking out of the game temporarily? Any info is much appreciated.

    • Not sure i’m following what you’re saying.

      To get the rocket you have to restore the Q, The Convention Center & the Clamterprise. The prizes you win are not part of the rocket offer.

                I’ve been on this site and the Simpson’s site since I first started playing. I think it’s awesome and it has helped me immensely. I believe I left one comment back during the butt gathering days but that was all. I prefer to simply read other’s posts to gather information but couldn’t resist posting a heartfelt congratulations to you Ms Bunny. Every time you posted anything during your comic-con adventure, I could not help but to smile. You could see the joy in your face and feel it in your writing. Some of us unfortunately aren’t able to go on such amazing journeys so I just wanted to say thank you for letting us experience it through you. You were an excellent avatar and it was greatly appreciated. Again thank you and all the addicts who make this site always feel welcoming and friendly. Keep on hopping.

  5. Upset. I really thought android would also get 46 days on this. But nope. I am not sure why we had to wait a week for nothing special. Going to go cry and keep Peter surfing the bird almost constantly. I haven’t decided if I care enough this time to try as hard as I did with the moon idol event.. I worked my butt off and never got king butt…

  15. Iv decided to go easy on this event and take things casually. My aim on the prizes is going to be Lois and anything after will be a bonus. I burnt myself out on the full moon event and still didn’t get king butt without glitching and at the end of it all he’s pretty useless. I’m sure Takei will be cooler but I’m not overally fussed. I’m sat at about 4,500 blam! And I’m really enjoying the event at the pace I’m going 🙂 unlocked everything bar PT so far but only need 3 more pizza. Fortunately the rocket quest appeared after I had already started repairing the convention center so all I had to do was wait for it to build so no stress there 🙂

    Thanks again for everything you guys do on the blog. Super helpful 🙂

I’ve even resorted to spending hours with Peters 1 minute task just to try to make up for other Blam not being counted but even those don’t always go through. When will this be fixed????

        Like

        • Yes, they changed it from bathrobe Quagmire to regular Quagmire (and they changed the length on bathrobe quagmire to 20hrs). My suspicion is it’s done for those who don’t have Bathrobe Quagmire yet, but still want Stewie. OR it’s done so you can still earn Blam! from the task during the event, since Quagmire earns Blam! but bathrobe Quagmire does not.

          Like

          • You are dead on Alissa! Watching Netchix isn’t even a regular Quagmire task. He’s one of few current BLAM collectors so they HAD to do something. They must have a psychology department over at Tinyco, because they clearly realized at this point, a lot of people are ‘close’ on blueprints, thus keeping Quagmire away from earning his BLAM in lieu of their final blueprints (some guy called them battle plans in another post, I loved it!!!).

            His ‘costume’ task was only 12 hours, as a reward for having the costume. Plutonium, Meat Chunks, Gloves, Maraccas, Peels, and even Feathers and Bats had TWO characters who could earn them with equal timed tasks. Blueprints had two main ones (Herbert/Bruce) and a bonus one.

            It’s almost their way of saying ‘we didn’t quite forget about the people who have costumes and characters beyond the first 3 districts.’

            • The 12hr & 20hr versions of the task have always been there, I think – I wondered about it after unlocking bathrobe Quagmire. The ‘reward for having the costume’ argument doesn’t do it for me though – a non-visual 12hr task that earns exactly as much $ & xp as the standard (non-visual) 12hr task? Putting aside the reason for the different versions, my theory is that Tiny simply linked the item to the wrong version by mistake – even though I’d love to think that it was a nice gesture to help us speed up our progress 🙂 And although I’m annoyed at wasting 12hrs while my item-dropping task turned into a non-item-dropping task overnight (or did it still drop for anyone else?) I’m also pleased about all of the 8hr chunks I’ve been able to save in the days before they spotted the error. And it wasn’t a complete waste – I did some of that sleep thing 🙂

  29. My biggest concern is once the iOS event ends, will the hybrid player get to continue on their android for THEIR final week?

    I’m talking from a logistical point of view. The event can’t end on the same date, it just can’t (100% my opinion). That being said, will people be locked out of the event on their droid IF they started on iOS? How can they determine the difference?

    If I load the game on my android after the update on Thursday, will my timer be reset to 46 days? What happens then, when I switch back to my iOS device? Will the timer flip flop depending on what device I’m currently holding in my hand?

    Some deep questions to think about! 🙂 Also, some serious ammunition for the compulsive complainer!

    • You…Stop posting!?…..Riiiiiight. 😉 I agree that the time frame for android users should be the same (just my opinion, also). Also, just a guess, when you load the game onto android, and then move back to a iOS device, the latest update will take precedence and be used on your iOS device. Again…..just guesses. We will all know the answers to these burning questions soon. 😉

      Liked by 1 person

      • The sooner you buy the bar, the better!

        Personally, I wouldn’t purchase any premium item with a 6 hour timer. Committing to 4 hour intervals as a game plan is seriously effective.
        2/6/10 hour timers force you to adopt an ‘every other 2 hour cycle’. You can’t keep that up for 42 more days. You will lose efficiency. Maybe not at first, but you will.

        You get to choose character tasks, so you can plan them around your day. Buildings are set in stone timers, and every hour they go unharvested is a waste of your timers and clams.

        Just a thought 🙂 I think two small trucks would, IN THE END, earn more BLAM than a single 6 hour truck. I base that bold statement on the fact that when you spend clams for these items, you shouldn’t be forced into a 2 hour ‘off’ cycle. You will be tapping just as much as a freemium player, and that’s not why you spend clams.

        This isn’t applicable to everyone of course…just the normal FGG player who likes to sleep and have a life.

  47. Hi everyone. This is the 2nd time I’ve posted. Been a bit of a lurker until now. I love tjis game. It is the first time I’ve really gotten into gaming. One of the best parts is this site. It is so helpful I think to pkay successfully. Thank you moderators for all uour hard work. I wish Iwould have been in san diego this weekend. It sounded like so h fun. I am going to try and take my daughter next year. It will be our first one and I think we might go in costume. I must say at 42 I am sure this will be a unique experience. I wish the new event had been available for all systems at the same time. Its a shame to see all the unhappiness about it. I hope android users get a really good gift for having to wait. Any idea on what it is? Im trying to get my quahog ready for the 31st. I am still trying to unlock stewie. Since the update very few of my characters are dropping experience points. I contacted tc and hope to hear back. Can this be fixed and will I be able to get them back? Do they respond to people directly? Thanks
