Note: The servers have been giving me issues off and on since Act 3 hit. It’s probably just a bunch of people trying to get in at once. Or it’s just because it’s 4am here on the East Coast and 1am where EA is. In any event…don’t panic if you see the Bart Screen. Just hit retry and see if you can get back in. If you can’t, walk away from your game for a little bit and come back to it later. The servers will come back, they always do…
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Happy Friday! Woohoo it’s finally the weekend! (well as soon as 5pm rolls around…) But here I am up at just after 4am here on the East Coast because Act 3 (the final Act) of the Monorail is now live!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Just what does Act 3 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
Act 3 will start up with some dialogue from Sebastian Cobb…
Sebastian: The Monorail is almost complete. Now all we need are some bells and whistles.
Quimby: You mean unnecessary projects that provide opportunities for corrupt officials to skim a little of the top?
Sebastian: No, I literally need bells and whistles. We need a way to warn people before we hit them.
Quimby: That’s fine. I can skim off necessary projects as well.
New Prize Currency for Act 3..
You’ll be awarded Bells and Whistles now for the Project Board, Clearing Possums and visiting neighbors (and clearing neighbor actions in your town). This also includes the 5 day Daily Combo, you will now get 5000 Bells and Whistles on the 5th consecutive day of play.
Daily Challenge Bonus
Act 3 Personal Prizes
The bonus donut questline is back! This time it is Project Management: Glass! The questline will ONLY appear for 3 parts and then you’ll complete it. So you can only earn 6 donuts this round at most. But hey free donuts are free donuts! 😉
Act 3 Questline
No real questline for this act, as that hit the other day. BUT there is the Fast Track to Success questline that will appear. This essentially tells you to place the Mall-O-Rail Station and Station pieces as you earn them.
Yes, once you complete the Act 3 Prize Track you’ll have the opportunity to earn bonus track again. And yes, the project board cap will be removed once you unlock all of the Act 3 prizes…
Act 2 Prizes
IF you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT TWO PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright by each one left at the point you left off at.
New Items in the Store
No new items were added TODAY, but a few items hit our stores yesterday. Check out this post for more details on those items…
Rail Yard Prizes
Note: Once you unlock and place the Railyard, the Project Board becomes obsolete. You will NOT be able to turn in items at the Project Board after you unlock and place the Rail Yard. This will only impact you when it comes to earning Bonus Track via collecting Bells and Whistles….but you’ll still get the bonus track described below via the Rail Yard.
This also eliminates the Daily Bonus. So once you’re in the Rail Yard you will no longer get the Daily Bonus…
Once you unlock the final Act 3 prize you’ll have a chance for even MORE prizes! Well more tracks….and free donuts
It looks like you’ll be given the chance to turn in items from the dump to the Rail Yard to make more mystery Track pieces…
It looks like you’ll be given the opportunity to earn more tracks and free donuts each week via the Rail Yard, which is great for players who were hoping to get more tracks after the event ends!
The bad news is you’ll still have to grind out tasks to earn materials to get tracks…
Just for those curious…looks like you can earn 16 track pieces + 5 donuts per week with the Rail Yard.
This is something we’ll cover more in depth in another post…for now just know that the option is there for more tracks after the event ends! So work hard to earn that Rail Yard before the event is over!
And that my friends is the details of Act 3 of the Monorail Event!
What are you’re thoughts on Act 3? Excited about the prizes? How many tracks have you earned so far? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
