Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Out with the old and in with the new! Yesterday morning Itchy and Scratchy Land exited stage left and the Poochie mini-event arrived stage right! Because 6 weeks of Itchy and Scratchy wasn’t enough. Of course, an all-new mini-event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 the Fireworks Factory to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Red, White and Boom building to your town…
Building/Decoration: Fireworks Factory
Donut Cost: 45 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier
Leaves stores July 25th
-Comes with a short questline
-Small footprint for Springfield
-Awesome animation when in use
-After questline there are no tasks there, no way to make the animation work
This is one of those If you like it get it items. The animation is great, but it’s REALLY frustrating that there are no tasks there once the questline is over. EA spends time making a great animation then has no way of allowing the building to be reanimation. REALLY frustrating.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’m still on the fence. The no task there really has me annoyed. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at the questline it comes with…
Milhouse: Bart, come quick! They just build a Fireworks Factory!
Bart: Seen a lot of factories, Milhouse.
Milhouse: Yeah, I guess an abandoned factory isn’t that cool…
Bart: Abandoned?! Why didn’t you say so?
Milhouse: I thought the exciting part was the fireworks.
Bart: The word “abandoned” makes everything cooler: abandoned mine shafts, driving with reckless abandon…let’s check it out
Make Bart Set Off Fireworks in Fireworks Factory- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Bart: Whoa! That was a tone of fireworks!
Milhouse: I still don’t see why I couldn’t go in with you…
Bart: Because if you were in there with me, it wouldn’t be ABANDONED anymore. And that would take away all the fun.
Milhouse: So you’re saying I’m the reason it was so cool???
Bart: Yeah, sure..definitely didn’t have anything to do with the awesome explosions.
Milhouse: Wow, I helped fulfill a criteria for Bart to be able to have fun!
