Hey there Hoppereenos!
Here were are a few weeks in since the Monorail arrived in Springfield. Act 2 is now in full effect and with it, some New Premium Items. Like the Garbage Truck and the Spruce Caboose. Now I know you may be trying to decide if these are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Garbage Truck to the design of YOUR Springfield? Pondering over the return of the Spruce Caboose? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding them your game!
Decoration: Garbage Truck
Donut Price: 35 Donuts
Earns: 0.50% Bonus to $$$ & XP
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Obedience +20
Placement: Required to be placed on Grass or Pavement (sorry simp7fan). Sits on a 3×7 Base
The Garbage Truck Leaves Stores on September 3rd
-Animated. When tapped the top of the Truck opens up so you can see all the Garbage inside. You can hear it moving. A rat runs out too.
-You can get more than one.
-Earns Bonus $$ & XP
-It’s another Garbage item.
-Other vehicle type items available for same cost with higher Bonus %.
-No character interaction/questline with this decoration.
Personally, I think this one is priced pretty OK as a vehicle. I did like that it adds to the whole “garbage & recycle” theme we have going on. I like that it does help Obedience and does come with a bonus for the Donut price, just not as High of a bonus as I would have wanted. I say if you want to add some to your Garbage Dumps or just in your Neighborhoods, this one is an OK buy. I know I am picking up some for my town and dumps myself. However, if you are looking for the best bonus % per Donut spent, pass on it. It is low.
For a Freemium, a Donut buy like this one is difficult. There are multiple options of Donut Vehicles all over the game. All offering the some kind of a Bonus Payout, which is mainly what most Freemiums are looking for when investing in a Donut Item. I would say unless you REALLY like the look of it and REALLY want one, you will want to pass on this one. There are so many other vehicle type things in the game available like the Knightboat, Left-handed Roadster, Police Car, Burns Limo… etc for only a few more donuts that come with a LOT more bonus %.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do. However, this IS a limited-time item. So if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games. (and if you are thinking about getting it, the sooner the better)
What are your thoughts on the Garbage Truck? Will you be spending the donuts to bring a Fleet of them to your Springfield (or did you already)? Where did you put it if you did Splurge? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
