Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been caught in a major snowstorm you know that Christmas has arrived in Springfield! A light snow is falling & Santa has arrived in town! By now we’re all busy sending those elves and residents to the workshop to make presents!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the first phase, which lasts until Christmas Eve (12/24), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Presents. The first prize awarded at 580 Presents is the Christmas Float.
Let’s take a closer look at this festive float, and just what happens when it enters your town…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 580 Presents the Christmas Float will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 580 Presents mark this message will still popup and your Float will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Christmas Float will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Before you even place it in town…some minor dialogue between Homer, Bart & Lisa will popup. You will then be prompted with the task to place it, after that some more dialogue will popup. Here’s the full rundown:
Homer: A Christmas float! Wait till the guys see me drive up to Moe’s in this thing.
Bart: You don’t know how to drive a float. You barely know how to drive a car.
Homer: Why you little…
Lisa: Bart’s right. You don’t have a license to drive a float.
Homer: Sure I do. It says it right there on my diver’s license.
Lisa: Someone just wrote “float” on the back in magic marker. (although it says market)
Homer: That’s how they do it.
Lisa: Do they normally misspell it “flote”?
Place Christmas Float
Homer: This stupid float just sits there, like all the other stupid cars in this Springfield.
Lisa: Well, Dad, you can still distribute the candy from that big basket on top. Dad?
Homer: Can’t talk. Eating candy.
Completed Task Earns 100 Presents and 10XP
So here’s the deal with the Float:
-A decoration for Springfield.
-Does not add any bonus %
-9×5 in size
-Conform-o-Meter Vanity +10.
So that about covers all the details on this Festive Float!
