Tiny Questions for TinyCo?

Hey Minions. As Alissa and myself tread the airways on our way west, we wanted to start a dialog with our readers here to pass on.

TinyCo Logo

The Meet and Greet with TinyCo is tomorrow night, as sad as we are that not all you can make it we still want you to be a big part of it. So here is your chance. Make a list of questions you would like us to pose to TinyCo while we are there and we will try to get as many of them answered as we can.

Also, feel free to put in any suggestions you are dying to toss their way on how they can make the gaming experience better for you.

We love to hear from you and so does TinyCo. So get to sounding off below.

  2. I’ve been a player and a frequent visitor to this site for about 4 months. You guys have made great efforts to keep players posted on events, tips, glitch updates and more. Thank you very much.

    Here’s a question and a suggestion for game developers.
    Q: Does leveling up in the game or for each individual character do anything besides enabling more actions?
    … If so…
    S: How about as the characters level up, increase somewhat the droprate for quest items… You don’t have to guarantee a drop, simply improve it.
    S2: How about adding a chance of getting golden clams!
    Pros: + It’s pretty easy to code.
    + Keeps newly joined players and veterans busy trying to level up.
    + Makes timed quests more* attainable.
    Cons: – As obtaining quest items becomes fairly easier you’ll have to keep coming up with new quests.
    – If the quest involves unlocking animated decos or characters, keeping the game crash-safe may become an issue (?)
    – If droprates increase, you’ll think of also increasing the number of items needed for each quest. Please don’t.

    Dunno if it will work but maybe someone agrees. Thanks Again.

  8. Ok, I am posting this late in hopes you will see it just before the party and it will be fresh in one of your devious little minds:

    Can you get some info on the drop rate increase over time for extra-rare and higher rarities?
    Specifically:
    We know that the drop chance raises by X after Y failed attempts. If Y counted by item or my action(ie: is the drop increase universal or applied to each charachter action individually as the respecitive actions fail)

    does X disappear upon an item drop, or does the drop rate remain at the higher rate?

    what order are the rarities checked in cases of muiple possible drops?
    epic rare to common or common to epic rare?

    The answers to these questions could give players a better understanding of the structure of item drop and possibly lead to fewer rage fueled support messages, not to mention smashed phones.

    think of the phones!

  12. My main questions for TimyCo are:
    Do you have any plans to add rewards for leveling up the characters?
    Do you have plans to make premium purchases worth more in game such as how the conform-o-meter works in tapped out?
    My main problem with family guy are these two things. It sucks to have all your characters maxed out and yet you receive nothing for the effort. I also hate to spend money on new stuff when all it does is sit in my town, would be nice if premium purchases had added benefits.

  14. Can you please get a little more detail on how the odds improve for rare items over time? I recall a while back that TinyCo made an improvement to help players get rare items after multiple failed tries. Did that mean multiple failed tries by the same character or spread out across all characters? How much can the odds improve? Thanks!

  15. Just a couple quick small ones. Roads that aren’t locked to a certain grid lay out. The ability to put cars on pavement, items out the water (further than you can now). The ability to end ticket/messages with the support team. Some times I figure it out on my own or they are over loaded and its gets flushed down the drain or a new but different issue arises.

    Have fun and good luck 🙂

    • Hi cloverdalegirl.
      Tinyco are an app programmer company. Before family guy they had no connection but since the game was released they work with the cast and crew of family guy on everything. Unlike tsto where EA just pays royalties.

  21. Can TinyCo figure out a way for us players that have started playing the game later to be included in the limited time costume events like Pink Brian and Sexy Stewie. I started playing the game just before Comic-con and have been trying to catch up ever since. I am still only at the point of unlocking Asiantown. I was totally shut out of the Sexy Stewie event and just missed the Pink Brian event. I unlocked Brian during the Pink Brian event and the countdown timer popped up in my quest list, but the giant jack-o-lantern never showed up, candy never started dropping for me, and I can’t purchase candy now. I was disappointed that I was not able to participate in those events at all. I loved the Iron Baby concept in Comic-con. I was able to earn the costume even though I am still a long way from unlocking Stewie. I am looking forward to the day I unlock him and get to see the costume I earned a few months earlier. If I keep getting penalized just because I started playing a little later than some, I will lose interest. I can’t imagine what people are going through that have just started playing the game now. I would recommend the game to people, but hesitate because they would be sooo far behind in the grand scheme of the game. I am hoping that Cleveland, in the Halloween event, doesn’t end up being the same as Pink Brian and Sexy Stewie. Just because I missed out on earning him during the King Butt event 6 months ago (because I didn’t even know the game existed at the time), shouldn’t mean I can’t participate in parts of the Halloween event. I am not paying 400 Clams for a character that I could have earned for ‘free’ a few months ago. If spending Clams is the only way to catch up to those that started a few months earlier, count me out!

    • The Jackolantern was most likely behind a large building. It did that for most players. As did a lot of the candies. You had to zoom in and watch for the sparkles that indicated where they were. Moot point now of course but it was most likely there.

      • Thanks, but they were definitely not in my town. I stored most all my buildings and eliminated every road but one square. No pumpkin and no candy. I sent several tickets to TinyCo and got form letter type responses from them. I was probably too late to collect nearly enough candy for Pink Brian, counter was on 8 days to go when I unlocked Brian, so it probably was not activated in my game.

  22. 1. Make it easier to get clams, not everyone can afford to spend real money.
    2. For time limited events don’t make it impossible to get something like Diane Simmons without having to do all nighters to collect items. People who still hadn’t unlocked ghostbuster Peter costume and had already started the countdown for Diane without knowing that you could wait until you’d unlocked Peter seems a little unfair.
    3. During limited time events don’t make only buildings that have to be purchased with clams drop items.
    4. Include more buildings that don’t need to be purchased with clams during limited time events.

  33. Streets able to be moved and built like the buildings (single block grid moves rather than the specific grid layout they must currently lay), fix the buildings and decos that don’t fit their grid bottoms (Stewie topiary, smaller Vinny fountain and many many newer buildings are off by nearly a full square), the firehouse if it lost the front row of squares (shortening it’s driveway and front yard) would make it fit sooooo much better on city blocks with other buildings.
    And finally- Cleveland’s 80’s costume, add a task for the Halloween where he dances to MJ’s Thriller with some zombie backup dancers.

    Awesome game guys and gals! Keep it up!

  34. Suggestions:

    * For every level the player goes up, award clams or a deco/building which is exclusive just by reaching that particular level, because as it is at the moment there is no incentive as such in levelling up to level 50 – you just level up and that’s it.

    * Have the majority of characters contribute to dropping an item or items, especially premium characters which have been paid for with real money.

    * Have a 7 day log in system like TSTO, where each day it rewards the player in some coins incrementing gradually, ex: day 1 (100 coins), day 2 (200 coins), etc. and at the 7th consecutive log in, award clams or a random deco/building which is exclusive just through this 7 day log in system. Missing a day would reset the system back to day 1. In this way, it ensures players keep playing on a day-to-day basis and they can obtain some exclusive prizes as well.

    * Allow for roads to be added anywhere around buildings and not at particular spaces to allow for more space to add more buildings and stuff. At the moment, if a road cannot be place exactly behind buildings but a few spaces ahead, I have to always fill in that gap by inserting a row of trees.

    * Allow players who do not have Facebook to add non-Facebook friends similar to TSTO.

    * Have a one-click button to collect the rent coins from all available buildings/decos and not having to hover all over the map now that it’s becoming rather large in size.

    * In the character-finder window, indicate as well (maybe with a check mark) that a character has finished a task similar to how an exclamation mark indicates that the character has a new quest to start.

    * Have the ability to add gray cement bases under buildings as having just green bases for buildings at times seems a little odd.

    * Bring more celebs like the comic-con ones and the Kool-Aid man. Maybe not just real-life celebrities, but even cartoon celebrities (like looney tunes, disney, etc.) and video game celebrities would be a cool addition too.

    * Have the ability to zoom out a little more.

    * Since Cleveland and his new family moved to Quahog, have Donna, Roberta, Rallo and Cleveland Jr. in the game too. Having obtained all 4 will complete the set and award the player some clams.

    If possible, I’d like to know TinyCo’s opinion on each suggestion I gave as regards to how possible is it to actually have them in the game.

  37. I was really impressed with the Comic-Con event, specifically with the introduction of the celebrity characters that were voiced. I was just wondering about the process for this – was it difficult to persuade them to take part, was there anyone you would have liked to have done but were not able? Would have loved to have seen one of the recent incarnations of Dr Who but that is just me!

    Have a great time.

  40. ****We need a daily log-in bonus system like TSTO and most all other games of the genre have.

    Like over the course of a week something like this:
    1: Small coins
    2: Small coins
    3: Medium coins
    4: Medium Coins
    5: Large Coins
    6: A random item from a list of predetermined buildings/decos
    7: A small amount of Clams maybe 2-5

    And after the 7th consecutive day or whenever you miss a day it resets
