Below is a re-post of some amazing info compiled by our friend Em at Topix! You can find out more from our friends at TSTOTopix.com!
The Squidport extension was released 12th of June 2013 and is a permanent addition to the game. It will become available when you reach level 15. It is a multimillion dollar investment that will most likely take over a year to complete.
I consider “tile” to be a Four-Letter-Word that should not be used around children, so I will not use it in this post 🙂 Squidport will consists of 150 pieces of wood that you can place your SqP items on.
For those of us that began SqP when it was released and have not rushed any, or only a few of these slow, stupid, hateful, expensive pieces of wood, we are just starting on the $12.5K / 60h ones. I need at least 10 more to finish my very, very basic design. I will have no room for new buildings before Christmas 🙁
How slow and how expensive are these things anyway?!
You can, of course, rush these stupid things using Donuts. ~ 4300 Donuts is needed to get a 150 piece SqP instantly. Me, I’d rather spend my money on something else but I did rush some of the T1£€$ so I could continue the SqP quests.
The SqP quest has 11 chapters and 32 parts. To finish the entire Squidport quest you’re required to have 31 of these blasted things. This will take you 35 days + 21h if you don’t use Donuts to speed things up and it will cost you $ 156,600.
And that’s just the totals for the T1£€$! Add the costs for the buildings and decorations required the sum will be $ 698K including the minimum land/seaplots you need.
