UPDATE: For those with the “getplayarea” error message. Please email them. Help@tinyco.com. Patch is coming but until then they’re fixing them individually.
This issue seems to occur when a quest comes up for a character who is currently stashed in the inventory. Keeping main characters out on your play space will prevent the issue. Event and premium characters shouldn’t be a problem to stash, unless you are in the middle of their quests.
Hang in there. Help is coming. The version will most likely be tagged 1.4.5 when they are able to get it completed and pushed to all players. Send in a screenshot if possible of your load screen with your message to help speed up the process.
GOOD MORNING U S A!!! Well lookie lookie what we have here. Some NEW people just dropped into Quahog, can you guess just who they are? Here’s a hint, we released the info they were coming during our Meet & Greet with TinyCo in the beginning of October. 🙂
MORE INFO COMING>>>
Lots of cool new stuff going and I am sure you just do not know where to turn. No worries, we are here to help all we can. Let’t take a look . THIS EVENT WILL END DECEMBER 4TH!
Here are the basics of the American Dad Event…
HOW DO I START THE AMERICAN DAD EVENT?
Pretty simple here. You just need to reach District 3 game play. Peter will trigger it and start off with “A Shellebration“.
You will need to build the Clam Festival Stage for A Shellebration Part 1, it will only take 1 minute.
HOW DO I UNLOCK STAN SMITH?
He will unlock during “Clam Day Catastrophe” Part 1. (Shortly after “A Shellebration Part 2 Completes, Keep Peter and Bruce free for Part 2.) He comes in the Colonial Barn. Once built, you will need the following items to unlock him.
For those wanting to know, a direct Clam buyout on him was 420 Clams in my game.
If you unlock him before the event ends, Stan is yours to keep forever. If you do not have him completely unlocked, he will disappear when the event ends.
ROGER’S CHALLENGE IS TIMED!!!!
HOW DO I CLEAR ROGER?
You first need to have Stan unlocked. Once he is unlocked you will be able to perform the “Hide Roger” 1hr task. Just keep an eye out for Roger in your town, once he shows up send Stan on the task. If he has not respawned yet, the task for Stan will be locked until he returns. (FYI, you can also just check Stan’s tasks. When his Roger task unlocks…Roger is in town again.)
WHAT IS ROGER’S SPAWN RATE?
You only get one Roger at a time (of course) and it will take him 4 hours to respawn.
HOW DO I WIN THE GIANT GOLDEN TURD CHALLENGE?
After Part 4 of “Clam Day Catastrophe“, a Challenge for Roger will appear. Stan will trigger it. “The Magic Drunken Clam: Challenge“. This one will be a timed Challenge, so make sure you are ready for it before you jump in. You will have 4 days in which Stan will need to clear Roger 10 times. Once you have successfully done this, the Giant Golden Turd will be placed in your inventory.
It is basically watching closely for Roger to Respawn and sending Stan on the task. A 4 hour Spawn Time wait for Roger, 1 hour task with them both, so allot yourself about 50+ hours to complete this. (So 4 days should be plenty time.)
NEW BUILDINGS (Some will not show up until you complete Shellebration Part 2)
NEW DECORATIONS (Some will not show up until you complete Shellebration Part 2)
There is still more to come as the Complete Smith Family profiles show up when you unlock Stan. WOOHOO!!
If you have questions on the new features like Carl, Nuke option, and new Inventory tabs…please see the post below.
Land and Spirit Vials below…
So there you have it. A new family added to our silly lil game and we have an American Dad Event. What do you think of it so far? Like the new items? Ready to jump into another event? Let us know.
