There are times when Tapped Out is like a small child, it demands your constant care and attention – and if it doesn’t get it, it acts up! One annoying outburst from your game is when new tasks don’t appear right away, and it can feel like your game is stuck in neutral.
Sometimes those glorious exclamation marks, indicating new tasks, appear right away and sometimes they act up and take a little while to appear. So, if you’re someone quick to collect money from your characters’ jobs and quickly tap them into new jobs, you may not be giving the game enough time to generate the new tasks you need to progress. The new tasks can also be delayed if your characters are on jobs that run different time lengths. As a result, they may not be ready to start a key task as soon as another character finishes the task that comes before it.
How can you prevent these task delays? Well the best way would be to collect money and XP from buildings and jobs first. Once it’s all collected, then you can circle back through your Springfield and first search for the exclamation bubbles. Once you’ve located the characters for the new tasks, you can then send your remaining characters on jobs. You’ll want to try your best to give your other characters jobs that go for about the same amount of time as the exclamation mark characters. By doing this, your new tasks should come up as soon as you need them.
Hopefully this helps you find tasks quicker so you can progress through TSTO at a steady rate! Still having problems? Check out our Walkthroughs to see what character is required and when, this should ensure you have the correct characters free at the right time.
