Hey there Mischeif Makers!!
Those sneaky lil Terwilliger’s have invaded our silly lil game similar to the fashion they sneak into the Simpsons TV Series. But I bet all this information, numbers, calculations, and need for items has got your head spinning? No worries, we are here to help as usual. Let’s hop on in, shall we?
To begin, all the information is very similar as in past events. The more time you spend in your game, the more chances you have at Spades Earning Actions. The more Neighbors you visit daily, along with you just playing daily… will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
LEVEL UP MONSARNO
First up, the main focus you will need to set your sights on is getting Monsarno to Level 3 so you can fully utilize your Neighbors Visits (more on that in another post). Now Alissa has a VERY detailed post on this right HERE. Make sure to take a look at it. Let’s do a lil shorter Version.
Once you get to Cecil’s Redemption Part 3, you can build the Monsarno Research Facility. This will take 8 hrs. Once completed, you will start on Level 1 of Monsarno. Level 2 will require you to earn AND use 150 Fertilizer & 25 Corn. Level 3 will require 300 Fertilizer & 50 Corn. So in total, you will need 450 Fertilizer & 75 Corn to start the questline Chaos She-ory that will lead into unlocking your Neighbor visits. More on the MAIN questline HERE.
Let’s Focus on what you need now to get 450 Fertilizer & 25 Corn to be Upgrade Monsarno to Level 3.
Level 1 Monsarno/Need 150 Fertilizer & 25 Corn to Upgrade
Send all possible Characters available to earn Fertilizer
|Dimwit||Make a Donation to Science||8hrs||9 Fertilizer|
|Barbarian, Barney, Chester Dupree, Cletus, Dr. Nick, Duffman, Grampa, Homer, Lenny, Otto, Ralph, Sea Captian, Wiggum, Wolf Castle|
You will also have Cecil’s Daily Tasks. Finishing them ALL in one day will give you at least 75 Fertilizer & 150 Corn in one day.
Level 2 Monsarno/ Need 300 Fertilizer & 50 Corn
At Level 2, you will have another task unlock. Send all possible Characters to get some Corn.
|Glutton||Help Feed Hunger||16hrs||9 Corn|
|Barney, Comic Book Guy, Homer, Quimby, Space Mutant, Wiggum|
Add to that again Cecil’s Daily Tasks and 75 Fertilizer & 150 Corn in one day.
Plus at least 7 Dimwits again for 126 Fertilizer in one day.
As you can see, within 3 days or less you will be to the point of Upgrading your Monsarno to Level 3. This is with VERY limited participation. Add in extra Characters or pushing to try and squeeze in 3 8hr task and the overlap of the constant 16hr tasks, you will be adding to your totals really quickly in no time. Just keep sending them over and over throughout the Event.
Now for the Main Math of Act One…
MATERIALS FROM MUTANT VEGGIES IN YOUR TOWN
Once you Upgrade to Level 3 in Monsarno (and completed Scientophagy Pt. 3, which Homer triggers. Again main questline is here), Lisa will start Chaos She-ory Part 1. This will unlock the ability for you to start to get the Mutant Vegetables wandering your town. Tapping on them will help you gain much needed Materials for the Event.
Spawn at least 1 every 10 mins
40 MAX in your town at one time
There is NO Bank on this one, so once you reach MAX no more will spawn till you clear some out and wait another 10 mins for more to come. So roughly under 7 hours (if only 1 spawns at a time, still looking into it) you are looking at hitting your MAX of 40.
They roam all over town and will hide behind Buildings and Decorations. So use your “Movement Menu” to shut down all the items but Characters, then scan your town to see if you can locate any hidden.
Mutant Veggies Payout (there are 4 different ones, and so far I have seen no real pattern of one paying out better than the others).
Plus ONE out of the Following…
As for your 2nd item… the Corn, Fertilizer, and Mutant Seeds… the Corn & Fertilizer seemed more common. The Mutant Seeds more rare. So these totals will vary by each player, but will add some much needed Materials to your list as well as earn you MORE by giving you Mutant Seeds to drop into your Neighbors.
I want to say I average the following Daily, YOUR results will vary though.
6+ Mutant Seeds
So let’s figure out a few scenarios to see just what the Mutant Seeds can earn for you in Spades…
|Visit Time||Mutant Veggies||Spades|
|Every 2 hrs||12||84|
|Every 4 hrs||24||168|
|Every 6 hrs||36||252|
Then we will figure a middle ground, how many Spades can you get if you Visit your town every 4 hrs?
|Times A Day||Spades|
Visiting your town to squash Mutant Veggies every 4 hours a day, at least 5 times a day will give you 840 Spades Total A Day
MATERIALS FROM MUTANT SEEDLINGS IN YOUR TOWN
MAX of 10 in your town at a time
Once you have Upgraded to Level 3 in Monsarno, you will be directed in Chaos She-ory Part 2 to Visit your Neighbors and learn about dropping off the Mutant Seeds you collect. You may have already seen some of these guys bouncing round your town from a Neighbor already at this point. It is beneficial to BOTH of you to tap them as soon as you see them. If you wait too long, ONLY your Neighbor will benefit from leaving them there.
If you squish the Mutant Seedling BEFORE 4hrs, both You & Your Neighbor that left it will get ONE of the following Material Breakdowns…
ONE of the following
If you do NOT squish the Mutant Seedling within 4 hours and they disappear for good, ONLY Your Neighbor will get ONE of the following Materials Breakdowns…
ONE of the following
and YOU GET NOTHING.
In other words SQUISH THEM. This way you both get something from the drop. As far as WHAT you might get, the Spades tend to be Rare and the Corn & Fertilizer more Common.
These guys usually first appear in the Sidewalk or Boardwalks of Springfield, but will quickly bounce off. Just like Sideshow Bob, they will disappear into Buildings and Decorations. So get them while you can.
MAX Mutant Seedlings you can Drop Off
This is the amounts you can leave when visiting and the time you have for them to be squished. Make sure to spread them round as many Neighbors as you can. You will know how many you can drop off by the icon in the top Right Corner of that Neighbor’s town. You will also know how many YOU have left by the counts in lower Left Corner of the Neighbor Screen.
10 Total to your Neighbors (4hr timer to payout)
5 Total to the OTHER Springfield (24 hr timer to payout)
If your Neighbors town is already FULL with Mutant Seedlings, you will see this message…
SPADES FROM MONSARNO RESEARCH
Once you get to Cecil’s Redemption Part 3, you can build the Monsarno Research Facility. This will take 8 hrs. Once completed, earning off of the Monsarno Research Facility. The Payout is 120 Spades every 8hrs. So just visiting twice a day and collecting Rent on Monsarno Research will give you 240 Spades Total Daily
SPADES FROM RANDOM CHARACTER TASKS
Shortly after Chaos She-ory Part 2 and Neighbor Visiting, you will start to see some Random Character Group Tasks trigger in the game (like the ones below). They will show up in your task menu as the Icon Image above. These are REALLY beneficial to you. Not only do they help you get used to what items each Character can drop, but they also Reward you with 100 Spades upon Completion. So try to do as many of them as you can each day.
MATERIALS FROM CHARACTER TASKS
Depending on where you are in the game, and what Level your Monsarno Research is on… there will be MANY options of Tasks to help you earn Corn & Fertilizer. I will go into these in a LOT more details in another post. But to give you a rough idea, here are the basics…
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Materials from just playing daily, let’s look at how having Neighbors will help you in this event.
SPADES FROM NEIGHBORS
The Mutant Veggies are pretty much replacing the Building taps in your Neighbors towns. So you will now be tapping them to get payouts for FP, XP, $, and Game Currency. In this case, Spades. So what will you get by tapping on through your Neighbors?
MAX of 3 Mutant Veggies per Neighbor per 24 hours
90 Mutant Veggies Total/ Daily Actions per 24hrs
SPADES FROM FARMING LICENSE
If you want to spend some of your Donuts to help you in getting MORE Spade from you 90 Daily Neighbor Actions, then invest in the Farming License. The Farming License will double ONLY your 90 Daily Neighbor Actions tapping Mutant Veggies. So with the purchase, you can get 180 Spades Daily.
As you can see there are MANY ways of getting the Materials you will need to progress through this event. The Spades, there really is a lot of ways to hit the daily Targets. Just remember, slow at first… then it will increase fast once you get Visiting and Spawning Mutants.
Where are YOU on the Spades count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? Level Monsarno yet to 3? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
