Hey there Apocalyptic Naysayers!
I wanted to bounce on by to cover a few Questions and/or Concerns I am seeing repeated in the comments in regards to the Boomsday Event and some game items in general.
Take a peek below to see if your Questions are addressed.
NEW END TIMES FOR EVENTS
TinyCo is going to be transitioning to a New Time for Events to end. In the past, it has been 3PM Pacific. They are now switching to an earlier time of 10AM Pacific. This will start with this Boomsday Event, so the end time will be 10AM on 5/5/16 for Boomsday.
How it will impact the Phase changes on Thursdays, I am unsure of. We will just have to wait and see.
WHAT IS WITH THE ISLAND?
In order to prevent any issues when you are visiting Neighbors, the Tan Lines District Island is now visible to ALL Players. This is the Island ONLY for those not in BETA Testing.
Players in BETA Testing are the only ones that will actually see the resort and be able to test out the District prior to it being launched game wide. BETA was completely chosen at random so it will vary who got it.
So if you ONLY see the Island, wait. When testing is complete you will see it put to more use.
BETA TESTERS SEE THIS
EVERYONE ELSE SEES THIS
Evil Monkey is in the game now… sort of. He is in the BETA Tan Lines District and will take a while to earn right now. For those not in BETA testing, wait… you will have access to the District when it is ready and also get the chance to earn him too.
WHEN WILL TAN LINES BE RELEASED FOR ALL?
That is completely impossible to say. The District is being tested right now, that means they are looking for game stability, issues, corrections, feedback, etc etc etc. This takes time, hence the testing. When TinyCo is satisfied the District is fully tested and ready… THEN they will release it game wide to all Players. Until then, wait. When it is ready it is ready and will be released to all.
WRESTLEMANIA CHARACTER TASKS BLANK
There is some remnant carryover from the WrestleMania Event and it seems a few Characters Tasks are now blank, like the one above on Undertaker. Most look to be ones that were Event Only related. There are more, some that have a name, some do not… but most have no payouts at all. Like Chris’ Train at the Toxic Shock Wrestling Gym for 4hrs.
The issues have been reported to TinyCo. Will update if I hear more on it, otherwise you will see a patch when it is complete. For now it is not critical nor should it impact game play.
Many are asking if Sidewalk Joe is worth the Challenge. That is hard to say. As these Events come in Phases, I am unable to verify just EXACTLY what, if any, help he will be in the future for the Event. I can only go off of what I see right now. Right now he is only a Character Skin. No current help or drops yet.
Just know that it is completely optional for you to take the Challenge of those “freakin hard” items in the Crafting Areas. If you wish to pass on them and save your Materials for the next Phase, that is just fine. The choice is completely yours to take the Challenge or not, just know that they are hard for a reason and you may have to spend Clams or pass on something else down the road to get them.
RADIATION SICKNESS CHRIS
Somewhere around Peterpocalypse Part 4, it will trigger Chris to get Radiation Sickness. You will know he has it as it is very obvious he turns green in color, stops to puke green vomit, and is surrounded by a green cloud as he “floats” around the streets of Quahog. You will need Clevemire unlocked to clear him of the sickness. It is just a simple tap on Chris when he turns green (and Clevemire is free from tasks), a few seconds for Clevemire to inject the cure into Chris, the cloud lifts as Chris returns to normal, and Water Bottles payout.
I am seeing the sickness hit him about once a day. I am still seeing if there is a spawn time on the sickness and will report if I do see anything more back on it.
WEEKLY CHALLENGE #1
The Weekly Challenge did hit Monday Evening as normal, however my game is currently having some technical issues so I am unable to see it or get all the stats for it just yet. I will update the site as soon as I can with the Challenge when the issue is resolved.
For now, this is basically the Challenge.
3 DAY TIMED CHALLENGE
Clear 30 Mutant Goldfish
To complete this task, ensure you are getting a stockpile of Nets and creating Net Launchers as soon as you can. The Goldfish spawn roughly at least 2 or more about every 2hrs (amounts vary by player, tap on YOUR gates to see exacts of spawn times and amounts). It will be easier to complete if you have some of the items ready before triggering the Challenge.
As usual, not all Players may see the Challenges as they are considered a “Premium” item due to clams may need to be spent at some time to complete them. Also, they have “trigger” points. Once I get clarification the exact trigger for this one, I will update that too.
This is a good idea overall anyway to clear as many as you possible due to the Goldfish offer a good source of much needed Water Bottles, so you will want to clear as many as you can anyway as often as you can to collect a good amount for use in the Twinklies Trading Post.
Many are asking about the Toilet Paper. What does it do? What is it for? How to get it?
As far as how to get it, the list is already posted on the Main Event Rundown for Phase 1.
Toilet Paper: Potentially Hazardous Sphere OR Questlines OR
(4hr Tasks) Tricia Hunt for Supplies OR Hayley Smith Hunt for Supplies OR Mayor West Hunt for Supplies OR Steve Smith Hunt for Supplies OR Francine Smith Hunt for Supplies OR Peter Hunt for Supplies OR Mutant Stewie Hunt for Supplies
(8hr Tasks) Meg Sneak into Danger Zone
(24hr Tasks) Robocop Sympathize with Mutants OR Alien Sympathize with Mutants OR Chucky Sympathize with Mutants OR God Sympathize with Mutants OR Superdevil Sympathize with Mutants T-600 Sympathize with Mutants OR Worf Sympathize with Mutants OR Human Rupert Sympathize with Mutants
As far as what they are used for, here are the current items. Keep in mind that this is a MONTH long event so plenty more to come. You do not have to spend it all now to get the items. You can always stockpile it and wait closer to end of the Event or until something comes along you really want. The items can also help give a boost if needed to your Crisis Points.
Trash Can Fire: 7 Toilet Paper, +5CP on placement
Dead Trees: 2 Toilet Paper, +2CP on placement
Destroyed Founding Father: 30 Toilet Paper, Earns $30 &
20xp 1CP every 4hrs
Destroyed Goldman’s Pharmacy: 20 Toilet Paper, Earns $20 &
15xp 1CP every 2hrs
Stewie’s Destroyed Daycare: 25 Toilet Paper, Earns $30 &
20xp 1CP every 4hrs
Currently there are no special drops from the Building Skins. That may change as the Event progresses.
UNSTABLE REACTOR CORE
This Building is EVENT ONLY. That means that just like it is listed in the items information tab, it will ONLY drop Clams the duration of the Event. CLAM DROP EXPIRES 5/5/16.
Also, since this is a Building Payout, using Consuela’s Vacuum will collect the Clams from it for you. I only mention this as each Event these Buildings have been offered, Players are not realizing they are collecting the Clams too each time the Building reaches payout and Consuela’s Vacuum is used to collect from Buildings.
In other words, if you really want to physically see the Clams pop out… do NOT tap on Consuela’s Vacuum icon. Instead go tap on the Unstable Reactor Core first to see the Clams pop out visibly, then use the Vacuum.
If you do not care, then use the Vacuum. You will notice your Clam total increase the 6 Clams when it finishes collecting payouts.
These will be the main source of Currency throughout the Event (they also have a counter in the top center of your game screen), so work to gain as many as you can and use them wisely.
The Trading Post exchange options will continue to vary, as well as you can see in the top of the pop up for it, more items to come that will be tossed into the mix for exchanging. Each New Phase you will see them added. I will also update what I see in my game on the New Phase rundown posts. Feel free to share your results too in the comments.
As with any game, and pretty much any device, if you run into an issue there are some generic Basic Troubleshooting steps you can take.
Of course if you need more help, please feel free to ask. Many times the issues may impact more than one Player. Any reported issues I do pass on to TinyCo as well as keeping an eye out for trending issues that impact large amounts of Players and alert Tech Support so they can start work on them as soon as possible. Feel free to report issues directly to TinyCo if/when needed.
Just keep in mind response may take time depending on issue and you may also get an automated one in times of high volume messaging going in to them. Respond to all messages, including automated, if the issue is still there. Otherwise, patience… and feel free to ask here in the meantime.
I HAVE A QUESTION???
If you are not sure of something and want to see if it is addressed on the site already, feel free to use our really cool “SEARCH” feature on the site in our Menu Tabs. It works with Google except it will pull up all the posts on THIS site instead with the keywords you input.
There is also just the generic search bar on the right. It just is a bit more stubborn on word accuracy. Then we also just have the Generic Q&A section of the site too.
This site is here to help other fellow Players with the game mechanics as well as provide helpful tips and tricks to assist with game progress. This site is not the place for just hate and anger. Keyboard Jockies and Trolls aren’t welcome. Enough of that on the internet as it is.
We however do understand there may be times when the game does cause upset and you need to say something, so we made posts SPECIFICALLY for Venting. What The Deuce. They are open 24/7 for you to use to let off some steam and get it all off your chest. The reason for this is it’s unfair to other Readers seeking help to wade through “hate comments” on every post just to find that help. It also brings down the overall feel of the site. (Not to mention makes all our hard work seem to be for nothing.)
Keep this in mind if you want to go off on a rant about something. Help keep this site just that… helpful. Keep the venting, anger, frustrations off the main posts and let off the steam on ONLY the What The Deuce so we can keep the other posts focused on what they are intended for. 🙂
Outside of that, please be mindful of the Addicts Guidelines and follow them. 🙂
There you have it, an overall Q&A of the main items I am seeing in the comments. Remember our site is stuffed full of information, so take a look and if you can’t find the details just ask. I will be happy to redirect you to the right post or find the answer for you if it is not on the site. 🙂
Did any of these address your Question/Concerns? Any items you have some extra tips to add to help fellow Players? Any technical issues you do not see addressed for the Event that you need help with? Let us know.
