Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Popping in really quick this evening with some info about Norbert’s task and the Globe.
A bunch of you are commenting that the game is telling you to get the Globe but you don’t know how. You’re seeing this task:
And you can’t figure it out how to get and place the globe…so naturally you’re worried something might be wrong with your game…
Fortunately, the answer is right inside the game once you’ve finished the 7th day of Norbert’s tasks…
Here’s some dialogue that pops up when you’ve completed the last task before getting to the “globe task:
While it may be confusing, because it says “finish today’s tasks”…it just means you have 1 more day of doing all three of Norbert’s tasks and then you’ll unlock the Globe. (i.e. you’ll unlock it tomorrow (“day 8”))
Is it too late to get the globe? On the 8th day, my game gave me the Black Leather Plane instead lol
something messed up somewhere…try contacting EA
I had done the last task and just had Mr burns tell me I had to do an extra day. next thing I knew the task was gone. beyond angry. big mess up EA
EA really made this vague. I just got a tiny pop up box saying to finish all of Norbert’s Adventure Tasks before the end of the Act to get the prize. Meanwhile, there is no countdown timer at the bottom. I am beyond annoyed because I was one task away from getting the globe. 🙁
I am super annoyed. I was at the very last task yesterday to get the globe and when I checked today, the globe is now gone. Totally ridiculous. I am so mad.
My Norbert adventure task was reset from 5 out of 7 to 1 out of 7 after logging into my ea account please help!
I had a glitch today with my Norbert tasks.
The first two tasks I had no problem but when the third one came up it was the “battle terra-cotta warriors” one which should be China. Problem is I already had Rosco flying to China.
When he completed his flight it didn’t register as completing the task. Now I have no open flights waiting travelers. So I’m stuck.
I enjoyed earning the Globe over the weekend 😀
This has not been a difficult Event – now I’m earning Bonuts 👍
My ONLY complaint is the 20 minute wait for a Plane Ticket (make it 5 – 10 minutes, EA) 👎
I’m not even going to bother with Valentine’s 2017 (yawn, lazy EA, just lazy) 😫
Overall? This is a fun start to 2017 (Airport, Buildings / Decor themed to a Country) and I may end up moving existing Buildings to their respective (ie Bistro – France, Asian Restaurant – Japan, etc) Ethnic Zones 😀
Here is a picture of the globe, the only place I liked it was next to Up, Up and Buffet…it’s kinda big and the brown color makes it hard to fit in my town…I’m sure someone will come up with a more creative place for it….
Wow, I didn’t think of this at first but when I placed it, it suddenly reminded me of the globe statue that used to sit in the Plaza between the towers. It was one of the only items that wasn’t completely destroyed in the attacks. It’s all mangled and twisted now and has burn marks all over it. They moved it to Battery Park (just a few blocks south of the original trade centers). There’s a flaming fountain to memorialize the firefighters, police and citizens who perished in the attacks.
So not sure if it should hide it or put it in my park with a campfire in front of it. Suppose that way I could have Chalmers sit and weep in rememberance.
Sorry to be a downer, good morning y’all
Lol another name change? Keeping me on my toes
Actually a retired moniker. MAB remembers every Sunday.
Winston (Smith) is after the protagonist of Orwell’s 1984 that sees behind Big Brother’s lie. Moloch is an ancient god who demanded child sacrifices for greed. In Alan Ginsberg’s poem “Howl” it is used for a metaphor for the skyscrapers and the lights glowing in the windows at night like the evil eye of unrelented capitalism staring down at those beneath them as objects of contemp.
Depends on my mood, for months I was in a dark place so Moloch. Now I’m seeing light so back to Winston.
If I have multiple personalities I can have multiple aliases. Like Viki from One Life to Live.
Well I’m glad the light is coming back for you. I do miss our enlightened email conversations. And, can I still call you Ryan? 😉
Email anytime just be warned I’m hyper-political right now. I didn’t watch the superbowl but I was like a superbowl fan at the Sanders/Cruz debate last night.
Call me Ryan, call me noodles, call me s*#t for brains. I don’t care just call me.
.Great, now Blondie’s stuck in my head.
Isn’t everyone in the US hyper-political right now? Can’t turn on the TV (or Facebook) without someone making a political spectacle out of something…
It’s not just us. The New World Order created by Reagan/Thatcher/Gorbechov is collapsing. Anyone who had anything to do with it is in turmoil. France is rioting, Germany has a strong alt-right movement of their own against immigration. Greece had people rioting in the streets over Obama’s visit. The structure of what was our history for the last 37 years is being torn apart. Brexit. Some people are treating the world as their own Springfield and they think they are the almighty Skyfinger
Please, PLEASE, no politics in tstoaddicts!!!!!!!!
I hope that’s not taken as political, it’s unilateral,universal I tells ya
I have lots of thoughts on this. But i’ll keep them off if this site lol
I don’t have glasses right now but I could see that comming
I feel bad for those now having problems with the tickets and flights. For me it is FINALLY working correctly (as far as I can tell). For the first time I am able to send more than 3 flights at a time and I can send flyers after the third suitcase. This has been glitchy for sure.
I gotta admit that I like the globe ☺️
The animation and the fun facts
Once you place the globe, be sure to tap on it.
(By the way, its size is about the same as the French Fountain, but with a smaller base.)
The game is now only letting me send out 3 flyers at a time…makes me wait 4 hours till they return to send anymore. 3 tickets sitting available for 3 hours and over a hundred folks open, but no one shows up at the airport to fly…this is certainly the “buggiest” part of this event.
What happens if you send the third person on a task rather than on a trip?
Back to normal this morning…5 flyers available again…weird…
It has been a quirky event.
I’m having issues with the last ticket too. The clue is “Find time for tea in Southeast Asia”. and of course the answer is supposed to be Darjeeling. I known that clue (ticket) is there because I’ve seen it a few times but it’s not coming up as a choice. I have everyone free so it should be available.
To skip the task and rush it would cost twenty donuts. I don’t think that would be worth it.
Is EA screwing with us?
I’m having the same problem with the exact same question. Need help & advice as well.
FINALLY. The location answer I needed to get that globe!
I can’t get past the first task of the day. I have done it twice now sending all passengers possible and none of them are the correct one for the task. Just curious if anyone else is having this problem, thankyou
Aaarrggh, need to Find Tea in South Asia… which is none of countries I have. This is the first time I’ve had an issue 😕 Guess it’s time to report to EA ☹️☹️☹️☹️ I’ve never had luck with that. Can’t help but suspect today’s update.
Yes I had the same problem, Darjeeling, India, the answer, have waited 3 hours for it to come up, I had to keep sending characters till it eventually came up, now have 4 hours to wait, very frustrating end to get the globe, hope nothing else goes wrong😠
That would be Darjeeling, India.
The right country is Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 ( Ceylon).
Try sending one of the other characters in the list on one of their normal tasks. This will generate new tasks. This worked for me when it happened to me a few days ago. One of the flights with my first set of tasks turned out to be selected as the second flight, and I had already sent a character there to earn extra cash, so it cleared out shortly after the correct first flight and I didn’t get credit for it for the second.
Had the exact same problem. Once the timer runs down four hours make sure your characters are free and it should reset with five flights including one correct one. Yes you are now four hours behind on the luggage tasks but they carry over so no biggy. 🙂
Thank you for the advice. It finally worked in the wee hours of the morning 😴 It happened to me again tho’ when today’s task reset, had to employ the same workaround. I hope this gets fixed soon. Still haven’t heard from EA 😤
Glad to have got the 🌎
I had this happen to me the other day, I had to keep swoping characters until the right job came up. Really annoying! Think the task was about bull running so had to wait till Spain came up. Hope this helps!
I was wondering if we have to finish another day’s worth of tasks. Thank you for confirming it 🙂
When in doubt, tap it out. The instructions are in the name. Thanks, Alissa!
So after i complete day 8’s tasks and unlock the globe…What is the globe? What does it do or provide and How big it really is? I’d like to the 2nd questions mainly since it’s something that interests me! 😋
So desu ne …
Thanks Alissia, great work
Well it is making tickets, just not showing the count down. Sorry for the panic.
As Mr. Jones from Dad’s Army screams: “DON’T PANIC, DON’T PANIC!”
They don’t like it up ’em, they do NOT like it up ’em!
Force close it…..
Maybe it was here and I missed it, but my ticket timer has stopped producing airline tickets?? Any ideas?
I got a patch and now my airline won’t generate any tickets! So annoying that they sent you a patch to fix a bug and it just made more bugs 😞
Is anyone else not getting any new fliers after getting this far? I got the final suitcase and can’t send anymore fliers today…
If they had just said “finish one more day’s tasks, and the globe will be yours”…no confusion there…
thats good!! i thought i its a glitch or something!! thanks for the clarification!!
Has nothing to do with this post, but what do you guys think about getting the Valentines mystery box if I don’t have any of the prizes yet? You guys usually give pretty good advice!
I do think it’s worth the gamble for the characters…
Flower Shop 🙁
Oh wow! I missed that post completely! Thank you!
I’ve been saving because I want all the Japan items
(I’m close to being an Otaku)
Ended up being stupid and trying my luck a few times and have the two crummiest prizes (stores w/o chars) and almost no money left to farm
Nice, thanks for clearing that up!! A bunch of us were a little lost with this one…And now we know!!
That helps. Thanks. ^^
And how big is it.
How big is it?
That’s what Nelson’s mom said.
I could answer but there are minor’s who visit this site. 😝😝😝.
Perfect timing lol. Thanks!!!
