Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We’ll you’ve been asking and asking and asking for it…and it’s FINALLY here! A send all characters on a task button!
As many of us suspected, the task update yesterday was preparation for this new feature in the game. And now you can finally send ALL your characters on a task at once!
Kirk will kick things off for you and the Office of Unemployment is the hub for everything…
More details below the fold…
As mentioned above Kirk will get this started…
Between Jobs Pt. 1
Unemployment Worker: ID and social security number please.
Kirk: I’ve actually got both, now that the criminal who stole my identity gave them back.
Unemployment Worker: Oh! Mr. Van Houten. You can just skip the line thanks to your frequent visitor status.
Kirk: That’s ok. When you’ve got nothing but time on your hands, waiting in line is like a vacation with a purpose.
Unemployment Worker: That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard and I work at the unemployment office. And moonlight at the suicide hotline.
Kirk: You do? Tell Gary I said hello! And I’ll be speaking with him soon!
Unemployment Worker: So do you want a job? I’ve got chicken sexer, roadkill cleaner, virtual gold farmer…
Kirk: Right now I was kind of just hoping for a hug.
Gil: If he isn’t taking it, I’ll take that virtual gold farmer job. Maybe then ol’ Gil’s virtual wife will stay faithful.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: I’ll take the roadkill cleaning job. After working at Krusty Burger, it’ll be nice to see where our meat comes from.
Kirk: Wow, I didn’t realize that I wasn’t the only unemployed loser out there. Why is all of Springfield looking for a job?
Homer: Some people are just too lazy to tap a few buttons. Not me — I trained a monkey to push buttons for me! He’s my boss now.
Send All Characters on 60m Jobs
Now to do this you head over to the Office of Unemployment Building in your Springfield and tap on it. Just like Town Hall you’ll see characters doing tasks, if they’re there, the payout time for the building, and an option with a green button:
When you click “Go” it will bring up all the options at the Unemployment Office:
Now this is from my personal game. As you can see I already have most of my characters on 4hr tasks for today (the rest are doing stuff for SH). So here’s a look at how it will look if you don’t have characters on tasks (this is from one of my lower level games, so i don’t have quite as many characters):
As you can see it will COST money to use this feature. The cost (in green) will vary based on how many characters you have (just like the payout and XP). The more characters you have the higher the cost, but the bigger the payout. The less characters the lower the cost etc.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: IF a character has a task in yellow (ie from a questline you’re playing out) they will NOT get sent out on the jobs via the Job Manager. So if you have a character that has to do a quest for a task in the task book/questline they won’t be included in the characters that get sent out.
BUG ALERT: This does not send ALL characters. I just tested it again and it left 46 characters off of the 1hr task auto send. Those characters are (for me anyway):
Apu, Barney, Bart, Brockman, Bumblebee Man, Cletus, CBG, Database, Dolph, Dr. H, Dr. Nick, Duffman, Eddie, Fallout Boy, Fat Tony, Gino, Grampa, Greta, Helen, Hugo, Janey, Jessica, Jimbo, Kang, Kearney, Kirk, Lampwick, Lisa, Lou, Luigi, Marge, Matt, Michael, Milhouse, Mr. Burns, Mrs. K, Nelson, Otto, Rod, Shauna, Sherri & Terri, Sideshow Mel, Snake, Todd, Uter & Wiggum.
Not sure if this is how it’s supposed to work, or if there’s a reason those characters were left off….we’ll have to so some investigatng.
When the jobs are complete you will still have to go around and clear each Thumbs Up, just like before.
Between Jobs Pt. 2
Kirk: I’m used to paying for a lot of things: hair plugs, girdles for men, my child’s love. But did I just pay to go on a job?
Unemployment Worker: Oh you actually noticed….Sending someone on a job means a lot of paperwork, which we pay people to do, but then there’s paperwork for hiring them, and you see how this goes. So we deduct a portion of your income to pay for our administrative fees. It doesn’t cost you anything…except for money.
Send All Characters on a 4hr Job
And there you have it my friends….the details behind the new Job Manager!
What are your thoughts on the new feature? Are you have to have a “send all” button? Wish we had a “collect all” button to clear those tasks quicker? Thoughts on having to pay for the jobs? Sound off in the comments below you know we love hearing from you!
