Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Springfield Heights hit our games last week, and what an interesting set of days it has been for many of us! Some of you are in your games all the time and breezing through, while others are only able to get in so often and it’s taking a bit more time. Then there are those of you, like me, who spend a couple hours a day in their games (usually at night when watching tv) earning that currency…and progressing at a decent pace. And still there are some of you who are just stuck, and don’t know what the heck to do.
So let’s talk about those of you who are stuck. The most common question I’ve seen in the comments over the last few days is…”It says I need more storage for _____ how do I get more storage?!” Now we’ve answered this question a number of times in various posts, but since we’re still seeing it popup many times daily I think a direct post just about storage is in order.
So let’s take a look at just what happens when you need more storage…and how to solve the problem…
As we’ve talked about in many posts, the key to unlocking more storage is to unlock more characters that can perform jobs there. After the initial 1-3 characters that have tasks there, each additional character you unlock will increase the storage value for you (up to 200). So the bottom line is in order to unlock more storage you need to unlock more characters.
So how do you unlock more characters? Well, the key to it all is Real Estate Points. You need to continuously work to increase your Real Estate Point value in order to unlock more characters and in turn unlock more storage. So you’ll need to buy items, build Condo’s, Mansions, etc in order to increase your Real Estate Points. We’ve got a full breakdown on just how to maximize your Real Estate Points here. So if you’re lost when it comes to earning more Real Estate Points, check out that post. It will explain it all too you.
Now here’s a quick guide (with pictures) to increase your Storage. Note: This works for ALL of the buildings. The same rules apply for each building (Coffee Shop, Springfield Heights Institute of Technology, LA Body Works, Pharm-er John’s & the Springfield Heights Theater), so just because we’re using one example below (the Coffee Shop) doesn’t mean this doesn’t apply for all other areas. So use these methods if you’re looking to increase storage for Coffee, Smart Devices, Yoga Mats, Pills and Trophies….
First thing you’ll see is the game tell you, you need more storage. Unlock more storage to do _____. It’ll be shown in one of two ways:
If you hit “Do It” (on the first option) it’ll just take you to the task list for that item. So then how do you get more storage? Well, what you need to do is look at that task list. See where the next character to unlock is.
In this case our next character unlock is Mr. Burns, who requires 700,000 Real Estate Points to Unlock. Then there’s Lisa, who requires 1,000,000 Real Estate Points to Unlock. And Grampa will require you to reach 2,250,000 Real Estate Points to Unlock.
So FIRST what you’ll need to do is earn Real Estate Points to unlock those characters.
How do you earn those Real Estate Points? You buy stuff in the store. You build Condos, Mansions, Valet Parking etc and upgrade them. Again more information about upgrading and maximizing Real Estate Points can be found here.
So now you’ve increase your Real Estate Points to the required amount, in our example Mr. Burns at 700,000 Real Estate Points. You’ll see that the character goes from being Locked to having an option to unlock:
BUT you’ll notice your storage is not yet increased. That’s because you need to finish the process of unlocking the character. At this point you’ll need resources to unlock the character, each character will require a different combination of resources ( ) to fully unlock and become a character that can have a task at that location. And once fully unlocked you’ll get the Storage Benefits for that character.
Now you repeat this process for each character listed and you’ll increase your storage up to 200.
Again you follow these steps above for ALL of the buildings that earn you resources (Coffee Shop, Springfield Heights Institute of Technology, LA Body Works, Pharm-Er John’s & Springfield Heights Theater). The steps are the same, just the Real Estate Points required are different.
So to sum it all up…the KEY to making this update work and unlocking everything available (land, tasks etc) is REAL ESTATE POINTS. Keep earning them, even if you think you don’t need them. Real Estate Points make this update go round…so earn them early and often otherwise you’ll get stuck.
What are your thoughts on storage? Have you figured it out yet, or were you one of the ones that kept getting stuck on this? Thoughts about Springfield Heights? How far have you gotten in the expansion? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
