Gil’s Latest Gimmick: Details and Should You Buy Scotland Yard with Jack the Ripper

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like Gil’s back in Springfield.  He returned to Springfield early this morning (he likes to sneak into town under the cloak of darkness…), naturally with another offer for us.  What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? Well with a trip around the world, it only makes sense that he’s pushing a British Serial Killer.

So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if you should spend your donuts on this Murderous Package….

A Note About Arthur Fortune…

Update: An in-game update came through this morning (April 11th), and now Arthur can/will do heists.  So EA has corrected their error.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Real quick, so we don’t get a million questions/comments on the same issue.  Arthur Fortune hit our games this morning and, as of right now, Arthur Fortune does NOT help with heists(And this was not the character I was talking about in my heist character post yesterday)

Despite what the store says, he will not help with heists.  Even after you finish his questline…

Hopefully, this is something EA will correct like they did with the Pope.  But for now know that Arthur WILL NOT help with heists.  If it changes I’ll update this post to let you know.

And for those asking….yes, a Should I buy post will be written.  No, it won’t be today, and not likely tomorrow.  Loads of content ahead of him I have to write still…so please be patient.  It’ll be up soon. 

Currency Confusion Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in real quick with a note about The Springfield Jobs Act 2 currency.  Some of you (ok many of you) are getting confused with this event for some reason on the currencies.  This event is just like every other event when it comes to currency.  There are 2 different types of currency….Prize Track and Currency.

Prize Track currency is for unlocking prizes in the Prize Track.  This changes for each Act.  So each Act the Prize Track Currency will change to something different.  (you can see each currency on the neighbor’s screen)

For Act 2 it’s Crown-Less Jewels…they look like this:

This will change when Act 3 starts.

Crafting currency is for unlocking/buying craftable items at Plunderer Pete’s.  This remains the same for the entire event.  Crafting currency will NOT change from one Act to the next.  So feel free to stockpile crafting currency once you’ve hit the 20% bonus on heists. In fact, many have been suggesting to do so.

Crafting currency is Plunders….they look like this: 

So when people tell you to stockpile crafting currency, they’re referring to these: .

Remember, prize track currency changes for each Act.  So these  will go away when Act 3 starts and you’ll start with something else.  And crafting currency remains the same for the entire event.  So these  aren’t going anywhere until the event ends.

Oh and these guys… are also the same for the entire event.  And there’s no point in saving them up.  Use them when you get them since they only pay out Crafting Currency…

Hope that helps those of you having difficulty with this!  Remember it’s the same as every other event…
