UPDATE BUNNY 345PM EST 3-20: Android users: Download the 1.7.3 update from the Google Play store for bug fixes!
UPDATE BUNNY 645PM EST: Two things I am noticing in the game. Players without the ship in the Event Area. Patch is almost complete and should be to the games in a bit, so keep checking back.
Next, players jumping WAY ahead and unlocking Riker before completing “Where No Griffin Has Gone Before” Part 4 to get 35 Tribbles from Quahog. This is creating a conflict due to the jump then sets the Tribble requirement to the Enterprise questline, overwriting the Quahog one. They are aware and seeing how they can better make it so those of us with itchy Fingers (yes, Alissa did this too. 😉 ) can get the Tribble quest in Quahog complete if we jumped ahead. 😉 Patch sent, let us know if the issue is resolved for you. 😉
Also, if you are getting an error mesage… check your app markets first to ensure you have the latest update to the game. 😉
Update Alissa 2pm EST: Land issue is fixed as are most issues listed below. Be sure to update from the App Markets to the latest version…
UPDATE BUNNY: Known things TinyCo is aware of…
-Fine Arts covered in trees.
-“Attempting to place unusable placeable enterpriseSkinHouse of class”
-“requesting empty assetId”
Hang in there. They’re on top of it all.
Hello There Clammers!
Are you ready to boldly go where no Clammer has gone before?! After weeks of teasing, a few trailer videos and a bunch of sneak peeks…it’s finally time for Star Trek to arrive in Quahog! (Make sure you download the latest Version from your App Market.)
So. Much. Content! And it’s AWESOME!
As always we’ll be back with more details as we go through them….
(Side Note: This will NOT be available on the Windows Stand Alone Version.)
Your first task will be to repair Shuttlecraft which costs $500, and takes 10 seconds..
More details below the fold…
Working to get you guys all the details ASAP…however my game server keeps dropping. We’ll keep updating as I can get into the game
First the new stuff in the store…
Initially there’s not too much in the store….here’s what’s there when you first start the event:
The Event Area is a bit different this time…it’s in the same general location but take a look…
For this event we’ll be collecting Dilithium Crystals! This is the currency you’ll need to unlock characters/skins and items through out the event.
What are Tribbles?
Here’s the info from TinyCo:
“Tribbles are small, furry creatures that purr when you pet them. Sort of like cats, but less bitey. They also multiply very quickly.
Pop them to collect Dilithium Crystals needed to power the Enterprise!”
So basically Tribbles will help you earn more Crystals. Simply tap on them to clear them! Sounds simple enough right?
Tribbles will also occasionally drop clams! Sweet right?!
UPDATE BUNNY : Here’s my spawn results. 6 Tribbles every hour. 3 yellow, 2 beige, 1 brown. I think your Star fleet Level may impact the amount, but this is what my last 6 spawns showed.
If you tap on one that multiplies, you can spawn up to 5/6 more from it. But tap fast cuz they disappear after a few seconds.
You’ll find him when you repair the Shuttlecraft. As always you’ll have to get stuff to unlock him…here’s a look at what you’ll need:
You’ll find Geordi once you’ve gotten onto the Enterprise. He’ll be in the engine room…and you’ll need 2 Life Support Energy to unlock the room. Once unlocked you’ll find him. Naturally you’ll have to collect STUFF to unlock him. Here’s what you’ll need:
A new costume for Peter (of course you had to have known one was coming!) You’ll be able to start unlocking him once you’ve unlocked William Riker. Collect STUFF to unlock. Here’s what you’ll need:
ALL Characters/Costumes must be unlocked by April 30th in order to keep them in your Quahog. Otherwise they’ll leave with the event on April 30th
Traveling to the Enterprise
You’ll be able to travel back and forth from the Enterprise to Quahog! BUT you can only do this once you unlock William Riker. Once you’ve unlocked him simply tap on the icon in the lower right corner of your screen to travel…
Before you unlock William Riker you’ll see this screen popup:
Once you’ve unlocked Riker and are able to travel you’ll see this message popup from Ollie..
And then you’ll be taken away to the USS Enterprise!
The first time you visit the Enterprise it’ll look like this..
Once you’ve unlocked the ability to board the Enterprise you’ll be able to explore various rooms and areas. Here’s some more info on that…
Note these are from TinyCo’s FAQs..
How do I explore the Enterprise?
Only a small section of the ship will be available for use when you first board the Enterprise. As you explore and repair the ship, you’ll be able to repair the main rooms and customize the Enterprise rooms. You can decide which Enterprise Rooms you want to build and where to build them. (For more info, read “How do Enterprise Rooms work?”)
Some parts of the ship are sectioned into “districts.” In order to access different areas of the Enterprise, you may need to complete certain quests or wait for the next Warp Core upgrade to become available. Each week, you’ll need to collect Life Support Energy to upgrade the Warp Core. More content becomes available with each upgrade.
How do Enterprise Rooms work?
Aboard the Enterprise, you’ll find blank rooms. Players can build a room of their choice in these spaces in order to customize their experience.
Each Enterprise Room requires Dilithium to construct and will take time to finish building. The rooms will generate resources and event experience when you collect from them. They also have a chance of dropping stuff you’ll need throughout the event.
Some Enterprise Rooms can be purchased for clams. If you purchase a premium Enterprise Room you get to keep/reuse it (even if you build something over it).
You’ll receive a deco version of each Enterprise Room you build once the event ends!
We’ll break the rooms down a bit more in another post…
Energy is pretty critical for this event. It’s going to help you open up various rooms/districts of the Enterprise!
There will be 5 types of energy used for this event:
Each energy will have it’s own purpose. For Phase 1 we’ll just be using Life Support Energy and Synthesizer Ore…the other types (you guessed it) are for future updates!
Here’s how you can earn Life Support Energy:
–Riker: Think Deeply
Here’s how you can earn Synthesizer Ore:
–Get from Super Rad Cargo Bay
-Bonnie: Go to Ladies Night
The Replicator is basically where you can craft items and other fun things! Here’s the description from TinyCo:
“The Replicator allows you to craft special Star Trek items and decorations. Each prize requires Dilithium Crystals and other stuff, such as Life Support Energy or Synthesizer Ore. You can earn these by performing character actions, popping Tribbles, and collecting from special buildings.”
From inside the Enterprise you can access the Replicator by clicking on the room in the ship. Here’s what it looks like:
Right now there are only 4 prizes you can craft:
Uncharted Planet Mystery Box
This will unlock once you’re on the Enterprise. You’ll see a shopping cart option, that’s where you’ll find this (bottom right, same place as in Quahog). Each try costs 100 Clams and here’s what you can win:
–Gorn: Moving NPC
-Quark’s Bar and Holding Company: Building, earns more Crystals
–Tribble Furrier: Building, earns more Crystals
–Armus: Animated deco
-300 Dilithium Crystals
-350 Dilithium Crystals
-15 Life Support Energy
-5 Synthesizer Ore
XP and Warp Core
The higher the level the more stuff you’ll unlock! You’ll be able to see your XP level at all times in the bottom right corner of your screen (right next to the transport button):
And that my friends is the basic rundown for the first phase of Star Trek! As always we’ll break everything down into further detail in posts to come.
In the meantime…
