Should I Spend Donuts On the Globex Compound?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The spies are invading Springfield!  Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games.  We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers and a shrinking donut bank account because there are LOADS of spy items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Globex Compound to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this world domination HQ to your Springfield…

Building: Globex Compound
Decorations:
 Globex Operations Wing & Globex R & D Wing
Donut Price: 115 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Compound: Obedience +20, Operations Wing: Vanity +100, R & D Wing: Vanity +100
Bonus %/Earns: Nothing
Size: Compound: 6×11; Operations: 4×10; R&D: 10×4
What’s The Deal With This: So when you first purchase it you’ll get the Compound, 1 Operations Wing and 1 R&D Wing (they’ll go in your inventory).  However, the Compound will let you build additional Operations and R&D Wings.  Simply tap the Compound and you’ll have the option to build (similar to how you build Squidport tiles) more buildings.  Each wing (Operations and R&D) costs $2,000 & takes 20hrs to build.  And you can only build one at a time.

Here are the parts:

 Compound

 Operations Wing

 R&D Wing

Leaves Stores April 11th

Pros
-Can build more components to build a massive Globex compound (or use the buildings elsewhere)
-Both Hank Scorpio (regular Hank) and Willie have a 1hr task at the Compound building.  (Willie- Apply for Fancy Janitor Job, Earns $70, 17xp. Hank- Host a Lunch & Learn, Earns $105, 26xp)
-Compound is animated when in use, either via task there or when it builds a new wing
-R&D Wing and Operations Wing are animated when tapped

Cons
-Does not earn income, the compound only builds doesn’t bring in any additional income.
-No bonus % on the wings
-Can only build 1 building at a time & it takes 20hrs for each…slow going

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
This offers little value in the way of advancing game play, no bonus % no income.  (although there are 1hr tasks there for 2 characters)  So this purchase is going to purely be a design choice.  If you like the look of the buildings, have a purpose for them & think you’ll get use out of “building” more wings..go for it.  Otherwise, pass.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’m debating it. I have a couple of design ideas, just trying to decide if it’s worth pulling the trigger for them.  Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores soon.  Whatever you decide, So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

And here are a couple of design ideas from Ebron (if you missed them in the comments) :

  3. Keep getting a message that says “Building Warning, you currently have 6600 buildings and decorations in your Springfield” Does this mean that I have to clear decorations etc and make a bland Springfield with just blocks of plain buildings. Have been playing less than a year. Any comments appreciated😍🇬🇧

    • No – it’s just an early warning that you’re getting a bit closer to the max (which is something like 9,200…I forget the exact number).

      You don’t need to have a “bland” town, but you may want to make some adjustments. For example, if you have fencing our other decorative f objects that are hidden behind buildings, you may want to store those pieces. (I’m not talking about bonus multiplier stuff, or wailing walls, which you may have intentionally hidden behind buildings…just stuff that ended up behind there as you were decorating.) You can also replace two one-space bushes with two-space bushes….stuff like that.

    • It is just a warning. At the moment the absolute maximum is 9.250 items in your Springfield. The items in your inventory don’t count for the total.

      The only problem you’ll really notice is sometimes graphics in your town will “glitch”. Make your town the way you like it, it will be fine 😊

  4. I bought this thinking that the buildings would generate currency. I wish I read this first.

    • A tip for the future…if an item earns something (event currency, cash, bonus %), that info is usually included in the description. So, if I don’t see any mention of that, I usually assume it doesn’t earn anything, unless someone who purchased it says otherwise.

      On the plus side, I’ve seen some nice decorating ideas done with those buildings, so maybe you can enjoy them, even if they don’t earn you anything. I enjoy my Monsarno complex (from an earlier event), even though it doesn’t earn anything. (Although, to be fair, I’m not sure that I spent any donuts on it…)

      There is a possibility the buildings could earn $ or % in the future 😊 I’m mainly going for building design with them 😀

  7. I am only getting half the schematic s from surveillance post. For example, when I finish tapping the soldiers, it says I should get 6 and I only get 3. Does this happen to anyone else
