Sci-Fi Springfield 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last year + that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.  This event is a combination of a few different techniques we’ve seen in the past (Leveling Up (Casino Event) and 1 Item for Crafting (Superheroes 2) and adds some new dimensions (Future Bucks).

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for Act 1…

Turbo Tappin’ Sci-Fi Springfield: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

The Sci-Fi event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and with it arrived, not only Stephen Hawking and doppelgangers, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 runs until August 30th, and you’ll need Homer free for a variety of 6s tasks to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to close the black hole and restore order to Springfield…

Sci-Fi Calendar: Act One

Hey all you Nerds!!

To me, “nerd” stands for Not Even Remotely Dorky. So thank you. Thank you for the compliment.

Per Professor Frink: Well, it should be clear to even the most dimwitted individual – who holds and advanced degree in hypothetical topology – that Homer Simpson has stumbled into…  the Third Dimension!

It looks like it’s gotten a bit futuristic and a bit sciencey in our silly lil games.  Time to pull out the MST3K? Time to get out the Frinkahedron? Time to…

IT’S CALENDAR TIME!!
