Hey there Hoppereenos!
With the New Springfield Heights in our games, there are a lot of lil details that I am sure many of your are trying to figure out.
One of those being the “Storage” Capacity and Character Tasks that take place within the New Buildings. Tasks to help you gain Material Items needed to unlock New Land as well as other Buildings.
In this post I will breaking down the Institute of Technology.
First up, some Basic details.
Land: You are going to have to work at this. That is fine. It is meant to take a LONG time as it is here to stay. Much like Squidport. No rush needed. So it may take you some time to earn the appropriate items, gain Storage, gain Materials, gain Real Estate… all to be able to unlock the Land surrounding the following Buildings. To get an idea of the shortest/cheapest route to go in order to get to each one, use the Land Map Guide.
Now on to the Building…
INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
The Shortest/Cheapest way to get to the Institute of Technology is to purchase the plot of Land ABOVE the Furniture Shop for 3 Furniture. Then once you got the Coffee Shop Unlocked, go the opposite way to the 6 LattePlot. Then up into the Institute of Technology for 6 Latte.
Now that you have access to the Institute of Technology, the collection of Smart Devices can begin. Here are some Basic Stats…
Starting Storage Capability: 10 Smart Devices
Characters Available to Unlock: Frink, Apu, Milhouse, Mayor Quimby, Ralph Wiggum, Willie
Starting Characters (Unlocked with Building): Need Materials to Unlock First 3 Characters (Frink, Apu, Milhouse)
Task Time: 5mins
Task Material Cost: 2 Furniture & 1 Latte per Task
As you can see on this one, you will need additional Materials just to send a Character on a Task. So you will want to stock up on Furniture & Latte’s in order to be able to send Characters on Tasks to get Smart Devices.
These Tasks will go quick. So you can have a LOT of Smart Devices done in no time at all just by the few you start with. My suggestion is to first get some Latte’s & Furniture built up.
Speaking of, let’s look at the Break Down for WHAT you will need to Unlock each Character to be able to use them in the Institute of Technology too. The more you Unlock, the higher the Storage goes up, the more you can progress in the game (as you will need those higher amounts for Land, Buildings, Decos, etc).
TASKS TO EARN STUFF
|Character||Task||Time/Cost||Reward||Unlock Requirement||Storage Increased By|
|Frink||Work on Frinkiac 8||5m/ 21||2 5||Unlock Institute of Technology &2 1||~|
|Apu||Work on New Thesis||5m/ 21L=||1 3||Unlock Institute of Technology &2 1||~|
|Milhouse||Consumer Test Products||5m/ 21||1 3||Unlock Institute of Technology & 20 20||10 (20 Total)|
|Mayor Quimby||Certify’ Voting Machines||5m/ 21||1 3||Unlock Milhouse & 30 30||30 (50 Total)|
|Ralph Wiggum||Be Subject of a Study||5m/ 2 1||1 3||Unlock Quimby & 5M & 40 40||50 (100 Total)|
|Willie||Erase Groundbreaking Equations||5m/ 2 1||1 3||Unlock Ralph & 8.8M & 50 10||100 (200 Total)|
So remember, this one you can’t just send a Character on a Task. You will need Furniture and Lattes for each Task to send them.
You are going to need the Yoga Mats next, so I would suggest to start heading over towards the LA Body Works.
The Shortest/Cheapest way to get to the LA Body Works is to purchase the plot of Land ABOVE the Furniture Shop for 3 Furniture. Then you will need an additional 10 Furniture to Unlock the Land under the Coffee Shop. Then once you got the Institute of Technology Unlocked, go up from the Coffee Shop Towards LA Body Works. 10 Latte for the first section. Then up into LA Body Works for 6 Smart Devices.
There you have it. An overview of what you can do as soon as you Unlock a Building along with what to look forward to as you progress through Springfield Heights. Just take your time. No hurry. Enjoy the New Area.
What do you think of all this? How many Buildings have you unlocked? How many Characters? Like that they used mostly Freemium Characters for tasks and just a few Premiums? Let us know.
