Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The spies are invading Springfield! Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games. We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers & a whole new prize track to work our way through!
This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the First Act you’re tasked with collecting Cheap Intel () to unlock each prize!
The Fourth Act 1 Prize awarded at 41,600 is the Forest HQ…because the Agency HQ needs to blend into the Forest somehow…
So let’s take a closer look at this fourth prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
Once you’ve collected 41.600 you’ll automatically be awarded the Forest HQ and you’ll see this message popup:
That’s right my friends, this is a SKIN (Facade) for the Agency Headquarters. This is NOT another building. Simply a skin for an existing building (similar to how costumes are for existing characters).
The Forest HQ still does everything the Agency HQ does, it’s just another look for it. The Conform-O-Meter is not impacted when the Forest HQ is applied…it remains Obedience +10 for the agency.
And there you have it, the details behind the Forest HQ…the fourth Secret Agent prize!
Technically 200 Schematics is next….awarded at 50,850 , but since that’s not a tangible prize for Springfield (just 200 additional Schematics for Crafting) the next prize we’ll cover is…
Dentz- Awarded at 63,800 This will be the next prize we break down in the prize guide post.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the fourthAct 1 prize!
What are your thoughts on the Forest HQ skin? Have you unlocked it yet? Disappointed it was a skin for the HQ and not another building? Like that it was a skin and not another building? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
It may be just a Building Skin, but it looks more convert now (we still need a Get Smart homage for this Event) 😅😂
Yeah, much prefer this look to the hq. It looks great near my botanical gardens.
I actually love the idea of offering skins for the big event building. Instead of cluttering up Springfield with several “random” big buildings, I can actually design around one building with a theme of my choice. Since I like forrest areas, this is perfect for my Springfield. And if I want to redesign later on, I can just switch to another theme. Brilliant.
In other news, Russ Cargill was offered to me a few hours ago for 80 donuts. Instant buy for that price! I saw him in the in-game character list for the event and was waiting rather impatiently for him. And since now I know my donuts will most likely be enough for everything I want, I also got the three nerds. Yay! Only about 100 donuts left now, but KEM construction crews keep working overtime.
I am way ahead in my A-game (about 1000 Intel away from the last prize), but in my freemium test-games I am about here right now, just got the Skin, not yet at the schematics. I doubt I will make it all the way, but in all major events the first act was always the hardest. Better luck with acts 2&3. 🙂
I love this but now I have to decide which I like better regular HQ in my future area or all treed up and sticking up out of a large forest.
Enjoying this event 😊 Still want more crafting currency please EA. Thanks for all the hard work you guys 😀
is anyone else having major issues with the drone scan that it keeps flying off into un bought land?
and on a side note EA has some serious obsession with metal since that’s all is ever needed for the monorail pieces & 5 donuts. it’s actually quite irritating me now
Try moving it to a more populated area, even if just temporarily while you do the scan. It doesn’t have too big a radius, so even just moving it in town just a bit more should solve the issue.
I assume you’re not able to tap on the Agents outside of the land you’ve unlocked?
Better metal than glass…2 out of the last 3 weeks has seen an unbalanced leaning towards glass in my game – @ 3 hours a set – I’ll trade for metal anytime 😀.
I’ve got 4 days to earn 13k intel to get Agent Bont, I reckon it’s safe to say I’ll get him, which I’m excited for as I don’t think I’ve ever gotten the last prize on the prize wheel before!
did we get sorry typo
This is just a off the wall question. What event do we get the monster character that looks like Mortimer from bugs bunny ( the big red guy with basket ball sneakers). Im pretty sure I had one but now hes gone.
The Looney Tunes character you’re thinking of is named Gossamer. Bonus trivia- he was originally called Rudolph. I have not seen a character like him in TSTO, but that would be very cool!
I wasn’t playing yet during the Monsarno (SP?) event, but did one of the mutant vegetables look something like that? I think I’ve maybe seen it at a neighbor’s.
The Grumble? Big, green and furry? Christmas 2013🌲
FYI, I got the final priz, Agent Bont, and he earns event currency.
Mind you if you have the agent already then I wouldn’t thought in your case it will make a lot of difference if he earns event currency. Will for me though thanks for the heads up.
You earn a round of bonut boxes for every 5,000 intel after you finish the prize track. So, yeah, the ability to earn event currency still matters.
6 times as many hits, but half as many schemas per hit is still 3 times as many schemas, not to be sniffed at.
