Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Pride Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Apparently the recent Time Travel Event has caused EA to lose their calendars because a Pride Update has hit our games..a month late. Naturally with all event, mini or not, our stores are stacked with premium items tempting us to spend those sprinkles! 

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 any of the returning Pride content to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks…

 

All returning content leaves stores July 18th

.25% Bonus on all cash and XP

Item: Valentine’s Day Cooling Towers
Cost:
25 Donuts, 20 Donut Rebate..NET 5 Donuts
Earns:
Nothing
What Does It Do?:
Nothing, it’s a facade for the Cooling Towers.
Previous Post: Cooling Towers
My Opinion On It Now:

Earns:
$300, 30xp/12hrs

My Opinion On It Now:
Unchanged from previous post. It’s an NPC, but the fact it throws up Rainbows makes me giggle.

Item: Ajax Steel Mill and Roscoe

Earns:
$200, 22xp/8hrs (Roscoe earns at a premium rate)

  1. If you missed Anything last time that’s back at Discount? Buy it – especially Building-Character combos (a shame this years Premium Decoration has low Bonus %, not worth getting even if they would turn my Pride Springfield into a genuine Las Vegas Fruit Loop – which is the nickname the Vegas LGBT Community gives their fun zone)🌈

  2. I bought the She-She Lounge for the 4h task for adult springfielders. I’m wondering if i storing patty in storage (to make sure i don’t finish the questline) is a good idea? Would it affect the questline in any way?

    Like

    • storing patty means storing both sisters and their building… that’s an option if you want, but i’ve found that setting patty on her 24 hour task mostly keeps her out of the way. if you don’t like seeing her smoking a cigarette in your town all day long, could even wait for her to walk behind a building or tree before setting it.

      fortunately, if you use the job manager, patty won’t ever get assigned that way because her task for the she-she lounge questline is yellow. and if you ever do accidentally assign her to her questline task, just make sure to put her into storage and bring her back out to cancel it… as long as it doesn’t finish, the task won’t complete.

  3. I can’t decide between She She Lounge and Arnie Pye, who is in my vault at the moment. They’ll disappear at the same time and I don’t have enough donuts for both. Any thoughts? Do Helen and Patty’s She She tasks pay premium?

    • she-she lounge, hands down. never complete patty’s task in part 2 of the questline, and you can forever send most of your springfielders on the 4hr task to party at the she-she lounge, ALL with premium payout. this is one of the best hidden strategies in the game… or fetishes, as pimp likes to call them.

        • speak for yourself sandra. boring is having to clear 200+ thumbs all around town every time i check my game. ultimately, consolidating most of those to one building, all with premium payout, allows me to have more fun in my game, because it’s means less time collecting and resetting tasks, more igc to convert to donuts, and more time for designing. that’s what i enjoy about playing this game, not worrying about what tasks makes my digital characters happy.

          • Well of course I was just speaking for myself! I enjoy all of the things that you mentioned, but I also enjoy seeing some of the fun animations, too. I guess I just like a mix…sometimes it’s nice to be able to send everyone on the same task (for the reasons you mentioned), but most of the time I enjoy seeing my town buzzing with various types of activities. Chacun son gout! 🙂

  4. Furious D is 100% always on his 16-hour task following around two-nicorn in my task because I just think it’s hilarious for some reason.

    Finally getting the She She Lounge for myself this time.

    Furious D does have a 16(?) hr task to follow two-nicorn that pays like $1600

  6. I already had them all except for the Havana Private Home and I’m not sure how it ties to this event. Right now, even with the rebate, it is looking like a pass for me. All the other items are unique (1 only per town) except the billboard. Perhaps I’ll get another one of those, not sure.

  11. There seems to be a problem in some games right now that won’t allow you to purchase donuts. According to the threads EA is aware of the issue but has not given a timeliness to be fixed. I already missed out on a vault item i wanted to get yesterday and am worried I might miss out on the pride items and vault items I want this week as well.

  13. I know I’m in the minority on this, but I don’t want anything that vomits anything in my town, not even rainbows. But, other than the twonicorn (and Roscoe and the Steel Mill, because I already had that), it was a clean sweep for me! 🙂

    My vault was a bit underwhelming again this time…. I’ll probably pick up Arnie Pye, but Chester and his unfinished shed? What the heck am I gonna do with that? But I know I’ll probably cave and get him before the vault changes again….but I do draw the line at the Funzo that’s in there…my town is a no Funzo zone! 😛

  14. Ajax Steel Mill (or Roscoes Quest to be precise) gives at Part 3 the chance to send most of the Springfielders on a 4 Hour Task which earns Premium Income (260$). If you never finish Roscoes 12hour part of that Quest you’ll be able to send them as often as you want to. Earns a lot of Cash and 90% of your Characters will be on one spot, so collecting money is quite easy. And the unemployment office can be used to send them, after sending them the first time manually. This also works with the She-She Lounge, except that you can send less characters there.

  15. The Ajax Steel Mill is a steal at that price
    (I paid the full price when it was offered the second time)

  16. For those thinking about Ajax steel mill and Roscoe, just wanted to add that I go him last year, also for 100, and he’s been one of my favorite characters. I love his visual tasks, and there’s nothing quite like partying down with Roscoe, Smithers, and Duffman outside the steel mill dancing!

  17. I got the She-She lounge the last time it was offered and I am keeping the questline on the 4 hour “party at the She-She lounge” for almost everyone except Patty and the children. This way the majority of my town has a 4 hour premium task. Also I love it when I tap it and they all come out at once.

      • Think it might be a voice thing? I know some folks were voiced by actors that won’t release the rights to EA. Of course, they could release him unvoiced, but that would be no fun.

        • I think they intentionally hold off on releasing certain “key” charters so that the game will have legs. If they released all of them early on, then, down the road, the game would only be left with more minor characters to release and interest could drop off. So, in this example, gotta save something juicy for a future pride event!

      It’s hard for me to believe he still isn’t in this game… I think he is the most interesting and funny gay character that has appeared on the show. Even more than Smithers
