Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Crook and Ladder mini event hit our Springfield’s last week and with it arrived a whole bunch (ok a few) of Fire Themed prizes for our Springfields!
This event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For part two through 9 of We Didn’t Start the Fire you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part. Two of the 8 prizes are Fireman Skinner and a task related to him.
So let’s take a look at these Skinner related prizes and just what happens when you unlock it them your Springfield.
Once you’ve completed We Didn’t Star the Fire Pt. 5 you’ll automatically be awarded Fireman Skinner and you’ll see his character unlock message pop right up:
And Skinner is the second in the Volunteer Fire Department Character Collection:
Skinner will automatically become Fireman Skinner, and start helping you earn for the next prize!
Skinner does not come with his own questline, since he’s part of the main (We Didn’t Start the Fire) questline. So you’ll need him to unlock the rest of the prizes. 🙂
Now once you unlock Fireman Skinner not every task will be unlocked. You’ll unlock one additional outdoor/visual/animated tasks for him as you progress through the event. Prize 7 is an animated tasks for Fireman Skinner.
Prize 7 unlocks the “Wash the Truck” Task…which is a hilarious 4hr outdoor task involving Skinner, the fire truck & a bucket of water (yes you’ll need the truck out in order to make this task work)..
While Apu and Moe both have tasks at the Fire Truck, Skinner is the only one with a visual task there. So something to look forward to! 🙂
And here’s a look at his full set of tasks now:
|Pose for Fireman Calendar||1hr||$70, 17xp||Fire Truck|
|Wash the Truck*||4hrs||$175, 45xp||Outside/Visual|
|Put Out Grease Fires||8hrs||$275, 70xp||Outside/Visual|
|Sell Fireman Calendars||12hrs||$420, 100xp||Kwik-E-Mart|
|Hold All Day Fire Drills||24hrs||$600, 150xp||Springfield Elementary|
*Task that unlock as prizes.
Again this is basically outdoor/visual tasks for Fireman Skinner, and nothing more. I know some of you are questioning the animation…and saying you’re not seeing anything. It’s simply an animated outdoor task…nothing more. So if you watch Fireman Skinner and send him on those tasks you’ll see the animation… 🙂
And that’s it on Fireman Skinner!
