Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So, one of the neat things about the Halloween update is that for the first time we can create our own little adventure…sorta. With the introduction of the Make-A-Thing Shop we have the ability to create our own prizes, by picking and choosing what we want to make…and earning goodies accordingly. (or in some cases earning goodies and choose what we want based on that)
Bunny gave us a great overview on earning, choosing and crafting…but now let’s take it all a step further and look at what happens when you craft and add the items to YOUR Springfield.
First up…let’s take a look at that crazy Grand Pumpkin…
Remember…crafting the Grand Pumpkin and running through the short questline is what will unlock the Pumpkin House for you. Details on the Pumpkin House and how to get it will be below as well…
WARNING Spoilers Below…including Dialogue
For those of you that don’t know…you can find more details about the grand pumpkin, and where it came from here.
Anyway….the Grand Pumpkin is an animated decoration for your game.
You’ll find the Grand Pumpkin in Make-A-Thing and can craft it by collecting the following:
Once you have all of those collected you’ll be able to Craft the Grand Pumpkin! Once crafted you’ll see the following pop-up:
You can choose to use the Grand Pumpkin now (by placing it) or if you’re not quite ready you can store i in your Inventory as well until you are ready. Once you’ve crafted it it’s yours forever….so even if you don’t use it right away it won’t disappear on you.
If you decide to use the Grand Pumpkin right away it’s questline will start up for you. Here’s the full dialogue version of the short questline:
Life is Grand Pt. 1
Grand Pumpkin: Finally, a patch to call my own. Sure it’s not big or fancy, but it’s rent-controlled and there’s room to stretch my vines.
Place the Grand Pumpkin
Tap on The Grand Pumpkin
Life is Grand Pt 2
Homer: Look, you’re not planning on going nuts and eating everybody again, are you? ‘Cause this super-soaker is full of weed-killer just in case
Grand Pumpkin: Oh, Homer, you needn’t worry about me. I’ve changed. I’ve had a lot of time to think. Also I’ve had major parts of my brain removed. Little things like the murder of my fellow pumpkins no longer bother me. In fact, I’m selling hollowed out pumpkin homes made from the corpses of my own kind!
Lisa: That’s extremely disturbing. Though I commend the idea of biodegradable housing.
Make a Pumpkin House- Craft a Pumpkin House at Make-A-Thing. (if you already have the Pumpkin House from 2013, you will not need to craft another) You’ll need:
And that completes the Life is Grand questline…and unlocks the ability to craft multiple Pumpkin Houses!
Here’s a quick rundown on the Pumpkin House and what it does…
Unlocked: During Part 2 of the Life is Grand. Must craft at Make-A-Thing, unless you have it from 2013.
Unique: No, you can have as many as you’d like. You’ll just have to craft each one…and each time you craft one the amount of items needed increases slightly
Earns: During Halloween each Pumpkin House you have will earn 1 Pumpkin every 24hrs. I suspect they’ll earn $/xp once Halloween is over.
Character Use: Currently no characters will use the pumpkin houses.
There is an additional quest for Milhouse involving the Grand Pumpkin! This will auto popup in your Task Book, but there’s no dialogue associated with it:
It’s the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse
Make Milhouse Hang Out with the Grand Pumpkin- 20hrs, Earns $550, 135xp
There you have it…the details surrounding the Grand Pumpkin & just how to unlock the Pumpkin House!
What do YOU think of the Grand Pumpkin? Thoughts on it’s animation? How about Milhouse’s task with it? What about the pumpkin house? How many do you have? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
