  1. Oops, I sent a bunch of characters on flights before I realized they’ll still be in the air when midnight PT hits. if I don’t collect them until after the update, will I receive the Act 2 version of the pins?

    • I waited, and yep, I got Japan pins. But the city for Norbert’s new task doesn’t want to show up in the list (“They sprout in Western Europe”). :-/

      • I’ve had the same issue, as have others. I’ve tried to report this to EA and as usual got nowhere! 😤 There is a workaround though which the EA forum advised… if you send everyone on tasks, it SHOULD reset the flight list. You effectively lose 4hrs of gameplay though. I’ve had to use this workaround 3 times now, it doesn’t seem specific to a given flight (from what I’ve seen).

        • Once everyone on a flight (I had about seven flying) finished overnight, it gave me the right location. I wonder if this is to partially defeat those who are sending extra characters using the “glitch.”

  2. Hey mods, I completed the Osaka Flu quest.

    As you can see my infection rate is 35%. I’m not entirely sure what the point of this game was, but someone was saying that perhaps if we could get it to 100% there might be a community prize. That person said EA did it for Tap Ball Xmas 2013 and other events.

    I only started playing in 2016, so I missed all that. Can you shed a little light on how this community stuff works? Am I supposed to get it to 100% infection rate by visiting more neighbors, or have I already done all I can do and it’s out of my hands now? 35% does seem like a weird number to stop at…

  3. Did something happen in the past two days to the airport missions? Up until yesterday, whenever I completed a 4-hour airport quest and started the next, the required destination would show up for one of the characters.

    Now, three times in the past two days, none of the 5 characters have the proper destination. I have everyone free. I haven’t been sending anyone on jobs since this event started.

    Just curious, since it might cause problems once Active 2 starts.

  4. Crafted a few Japanese Items (Decor, Trees) at Level 11 – hope we don’t end up with another NPC (nor a Building as tall as the Eiffel Tower) – it’s been a silly fun Event, so far 🤔😀

  5. Someone was asking about PLUM TREES… and they couldn’t buy them anywhere??? I just accidentally discovered that if you put one in your inventory, then retrieve it, when you place it, you can just keep placing more except you’re paying for them. I hope my explaination makes sense? And that whoever wanted to buy them reads this ✌🏻
