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!
As with all events neighbor’s come into play, in one way or another, and this event is no different. So let’s breakdown the neighbor actions, payouts and the mysterious cube (Anomaly) everyone keeps talking about…
Neighbor visits for this Event are pretty simple and comparable to other TSTO Events.
Unfortunately, for this event there’s no way to help your neighbor back, as we’ve seen with other events. This is a visit your neighbor for your own good, not their own good kind of event.
And with that said, let’s break it down for Act 1…
Neighbor actions unlock via the main questline (Turbo Tappin’ Post here). After you’ve completed Dark Matters Pt. 7 (or at least have started it), you’ll trigger the Across the Multiverse quest. Where you’ll be required to tap three robots in a neighbors town, this is where friend actions start for you.
Robots Per Town: You can only tap THREE MAX Robots per town. You will see how many available in the Upper Left Corner (your daily actions), or if you need to wait… the time left before you can tap in this town again.
Daily Limit: You will get a TOTAL of 86 Neighbor Actions every 24 hrs. (This is what I got. I maxed out at 28.75 neighbors (2 actions into the 29th neighbor. The 3rd action just paid cash.) Your results may vary slightly though, as we’ve seen with previous events.
Tapping Robots in a neighbor’s town does not pay out crafting currency (at least not currently)
And once you’ve maxed out your friend actions for the day you’ll only earn cash and xp (and FP points if you’re working on them still) when tapping Robots in a neighbor’s town. So if you’re not getting Dark Matter from neighbor’s it’s likely you’ve maxed out your actions for the day. Wait 24hrs, let everyone reset and then try again.
Does My Neighbor Have to Be Playing This Event to Tap Robots in their town?
No. You can tap Robots in your neighbor’s town even if they haven’t played in weeks. The Robots will still appear for you.
Occasionally when visiting a friend’s town you’ll run across one of these guys…an Anomaly (or as some of you are calling it a Cube). If there’s one present in your friend’s town your game will take you right to it. So you don’t have to go searching for it.
However, they are pretty rare to find. The first one might be easy, but you may not come across another for quite a few neighbor visits. Running through my neighbors today, I got one at the first neighbor I visited and didn’t see another throughout the rest of my visits.
So think of these guys as a fun little bonus. 🙂
Oh and the first time you come across one in a town there’s some fun little dialogue explaining them…
And that’s it for friend actions for Act 1 of the Sci-Fi Event! Pretty simple and straight forward. No crazy sliding scales or anything else. Just good old fashioned tapping!
What are your thoughts on friend actions so far? Have you come across any anomalys? How many have you spotted so far? Sound of in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
