Hey there Island Hoppers!
A New District is getting prepped and ready to hit some of our games. TAN LINES ISLAND RESORT.
This New District will utilize some Characters you may just have hanging out in Inventory Storage to earn some New District Currency and Cool Prizes. Now here is the catch, it is ONLY “BETA” TESTING RIGHT NOW! That means that only a select few of you on App Version 1.20.0 & District 8 will be able to see and test out this New District. More Details after the Break.
As this will not hit all Players, I will put up the notes on the New District per TinyCo. As this information is UNTESTED, I am unable to guaranty or verify it for accuracy unless I end up being one of the select few to get it in my game. If I do, I will provide a completely detailed separate post of the District.
For those of you that are chosen to test this New District out, please feel free to post your concerns, questions, screenshots, etc. You can also email the details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FYI: I will be able to be part of the “testing”. It’s gonna be a bit for me to work through it all. Keep an eye on the site over next few days for more details on the New Tan Lines District!
Now for the breakdown courtesy of TinyCo.
TAN LINES DISTRICT PER TINYCO
What is Tan Lines?
Tan Lines is a luxury resort where you can send your characters to get some well deserved rest and relaxation, as well as the chance to earn fabulous prizes in the shop! Fill up each floor of the resort with characters to earn Stewie Bucks. Only floors that are completely full will produce Stewie Bucks when rent is collected. The more floors you fill up, the more Stewie Bucks you will earn each time you collect rent from Tan Lines.
When can I unlock Tan Lines?
Tan Lines can be unlocked once you have reached District 8, and play on version 1.20.0.
Why is Tan Lines not available for me?
Tan Lines is a feature that we are in the process of testing, and was released to a small amount of randomly selected players. It will be available to all players once we have sufficiently tested it.
How do I unlock floors at Tan Lines?
Each floor will require collecting a certain amount of materials, and you will need to unlock the previous floor to gain access to the next one. You can also fast finish the requirements of a floor by spending clams. Unlock floors to make room for more characters and earn more Stewie Bucks!
How do I earn Stewie Bucks?
Green Stewie Bucks can be earned by collecting rent from Tan Lines and from completing Daily Quests. Only floors that are completely full will produce Green Stewie Bucks when you collect rent. Green Stewie Bucks can be traded in for higher value Stewie Bucks such as Blue, Red, and Gold Stewie Bucks. They can also be purchased with clams.
Tap the Stewie Bucks icon next to your coin total to exchange or purchase more Stewie Bucks. Here you can also view your totals for each type of Stewie Buck.
What are Daily Quest?
Daily Quests will appear each day with a 24 hour timer. If the Daily Quest is completed before the timer reaches 0 (zero), you will be rewarded with Stewie Bucks!
What if I don’t have characters needed to complete a Daily Quest?
If you do not have a character that is needed to complete a Daily Quest, we do like to bring back past content based on feedback so it is possible that you will see them again! You will be unable to complete a Daily Quest without all of the required characters, but another Daily Quest will appear in 24 hours. You can also earn Stewie Bucks by collecting rent from Tan Lines or exchanging them. There is no time limit on the Tan Lines content, so you do not have to worry about completing it quickly!
So a few quick things to note:
- ONLY “BETA” TESTING NOW, so only a select few Players will see it until fully tested for game wide release. Once testing is complete and ready, it will go live for all Players.
- Tan Lines District appears once you are in District 8 and on at least App Version 1.20.0.
- You must complete each Floor in progression to move up to the next one.
- Unlock a New Floor to gain access to use more Characters.
- You must use ALL the Characters it asks for on the Daily Tasks, if you don’t have the Character(s) required for the Daily Tasks… wait for the next Task.
- Collect Green Stewie Bucks and trade them for Blue, Red, and Gold Stewie Bucks to get some cool items.
- This is a District. Districts are not timed, so no need to rush on through or worry about completing it all now. Take your time and enjoy.
There you have it, a rough breakdown of the New District about to be hitting a select few games to be tested. Again, if any of my games are selected to test this New District I will put up a more thorough post on what I see. I know I am definitely curious to see how it plays out. It will give an interesting new twist to the game.
Were you one of the select few Testers for the New District? If so, what do you think of it so far? Tips for others that don’t have it yet? Let us know.
