Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!
For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well. Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol. It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise.
In this post, I will be going over the basics of using the New Inventory Menu EA put into our games a lil bit back. Help you find and locate items easier and make sense of it all. So sit back as we dive on in.
There are a lot of cool new changes to the Menus now and it can be kind of overwhelming to try and find information. To help, I am going to break down each icon section to make a bit more sense of where everything is tucked away now and how you can find it.
There are a few different ways to locate your Inventory Storage Box. In your game in the lower right corner is the Hammer and Saw icon (Main Menu). If you tap on this, look to the lower left hand corner of your game. There you will see the Inventory Brown Storage Box. Tap on it to get to your Inventory Storage.
Or there is also the Directional Arrows Icon (Movement Menu). If you tap on that you will also see over on the lower left hand side the Inventory Brown Storage Box.
Once inside the Inventory Pop Up Screen, you will see a basic layout. On the left, 3 icons of main items. Characters, Buildings, and Decorations. Right along side of them an arrow that when swiped will open all the icons.
In the center you will see items that may be NEW to your Inventory. This could be ones that you recently earned during an event or Character skins you unlocked. It will vary by player.
In the upper left corner is the Back Button.
In the upper right corner are two Feature areas again discussed also on the Main Menu post.
The Movie Clips Video Camera Icon (Cut Scenes). That will let you rewatch the lil videos from the very start of the game.
The Settings Cog Wheel Icon (Options). This is where you can adjust the in game volume, Character/Sound Effects volume, Push Notifications, set Confirm Donut Spend, Language, and more.
Now that you have the basic outline, let’s look into Inventory a little bit more in details of what you will see when you tap on them. These sections will vary on what YOU have won or stored throughout your playing history. So drag the arrow in the center across the screen to fully open up the Inventory Icons. Keep in mind this WILL show storage for both Springfield and Krustlyand. So any Krustyland items WILL be locked when you are in Springfield as they can’t be placed there. (If you look closely, you will see a lot of these items are in alphabetical order.)
Gift Bag & Mystery Box Icon (Consumables). This is where you will see items like the Boardwalk Tiles you have earned, as well as Prize Boxes you may have won. So if you got a Mystery Box inside a Mystery Box or Homer Buddha, this is where you will find it to open it.
Brown House Icon (Houses). This is where all stored houses will be located like the Brown, White, Orange, Apu’s Apartment, etc. So for you “house farmers” if you tuck them away, this is where you will find them.
Tree Icon (Nature). This is where you will find outdoors and nature type of items stored away. Like sculptures, ponds, hillsides, fountains, flowers, and trees. Including those event items like Easter, Valentines, and Halloween trees.
Fences Icon (Walls). This is where you will find anything you can make a wall with stored away. Training walls, barricades, and Entrances. You will also see any Krustyland Barricades, but they will be locked as you can’t put them in Springfield. There will also be those Easter, Valentines, and Halloween fences/walls.
On a side note, you will also see icons under the pop up. One to take you back to the other menus and one with a Homer Golden Statue.
Homer Golden Statue (Character Sets). If you are curious of what all has been released into the game vs what YOU have in the game, this is the place to go. It will show ALL the Character sets from ALL events and releases. You can see what ones you have completed and what ones you did not.
So that about breaks down the Inventory Storage Menu and the Categories inside of it. Keep an eye out for my other Menu posts.
As always, we are here to help in anyway we can. (I even try to harass…errr…I mean contact EA on our readers behalf to see if there is anything more I can find out too.) Just keep hanging in there. Changes happen. We will all get used to it eventually. 😉
