Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!
Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay. While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”. Crafting requires some self-direction. You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly. Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.
Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…
By now everyone should know how crafting works. But for those who don’t, I’ll cover the basics again. But real quick, so I know a chunk of you won’t read what I write anyway…
And now onto the basics….
Crafting is triggered via Scrap City via the MAIN questline…Planet of Escapes Pt. 7
Tapping scrap city will bring you to the crafting menu. You can also access the crafting menu via the event hub menu by clicking the trophy icon and then the crafting icon…
The Crafting Currency is Scraps, they look like this:
You can earn Crafting Currency from:
Crafting consists of different levels. Each level unlocks more items to craft. You spend crafting currency to level up. And once again they’ve decided to stick with what’s worked in the most recent events, you do NOT have to choose between Leveling up and Crafting. The currency you spend to Craft items will count towards the currency needed to Level up!
Similarly…you DO NOT HAVE TO CRAFT ITEMS TO LEVEL UP. You can level up by simply tapping the green button next to the level up bar.
It still takes crafting currency, but it prevents you from crafting a bunch of stuff you may not want in order to level up.
So the choice is yours, you can level up as you craft items. Or you can just level up without crafting items.
And as with previous events, crafting ends when the event is over. There’s no rush to get it done now, you can wait until the event is almost over to get everything your tapping heart desires…HOWEVER…you’ll want to craft items with the Defensive Bonus in order to max out your Playscape and Junk Base rewards. So you’ll need to do some crafting before the event is over.
And finally, there are 10 total crafting levels. You’ll start at Level 1 so you’ll need to level up 9 times (to reach level 10), in order to unlock all of the craftable items. Here’s the breakdown of how much currency is required to reach each level and unlock new items:
|Level to Reach||Currency Required to Reach|
So now that we’ve gone over those basics, let’s get to why most of you are reading this post…the breakdown of each craftable item.
Let me preface this by saying, for this event most of the craftable items are decorations. Therefore, what to craft and how many is entirely up to you…as to what you think will work best in your Springfield. There are some great decorations that can work in a variety of ways in Springfield (depending on how you’re building your town) but it’s up to you to determine what works best for your town.
Now here’s the breakdown:
Item: Truck Shack
Required Level: 7
Build Time: 4hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
What Does it Do: Animated when tapped, earns income. Cletus has a 1hr task there (Check on the Rich Neighbors)
My Personal Opinion on Craftables…
As always get what you like/what will work for your town. However, keep in mind you need certain craftables to boost your defensive bonus. So focus on that, and once that’s maxed out you can go with the order items.
So again…don’t kill yourself trying to get all this stuff. Sometimes less is more. Craft what you have a use for in Springfield….
Hope that helps some of you who have been stressing out over crafting!
