Halloween 2018 How-To: Act 3 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New Act means new crafting items are unlocked.  I won’t bore you with a bunch of words for an intro…instead let’s jump right into the breakdown of the Act 3 craftables….


I covered the details of how to craft in the Act 1 post, which you can find here.

As a reminder, here’s the currency required to level up your crafting…

Level to Reach Currency Required to Reach
2 600
3 1800
4 4,050
5 6,450
6 9,600
7 11,100
8 12,750
9 15,100
10 17,400

Levels 1-3 are required for Act 1
Levels 4-6 are required for Act 2
Levels 7-10 are required for Act 3

Remember: Crafting is available for the ENTIRE EVENT.  So no big rush.

My Recommendation on Crafting Currency…
Use it or lose it at this point!  If you see something you like, get it because come next Wednesday the event will be over and so will all this stuff!

BUT…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!


And there you have it my friends…the details behind Act 3 of the Treehouse of Horror crafting!

  1. Love Halloween events. Work full time, can only check in 3x per day. .Normally with an event, this is sufficient to “craft” everything craftable. This year I had save lots of donuts in anticipation of this event. Bought some great classic monsters, mountain/gorge, Voodoo Queen, etc with the expectation that this would secure my crafting. Nope. I still have not “opened” my final item, the Mud House. I am fairly certain it will cost more than I can generate in the next 2 days and 22 hours. Another glitch, like all the neighbors disappearing maybe? Anyone else find it hard to complete crafting this event?

    I’ve been an addict for over 5 years now, and felt confident in game playing abilities.. Should have checked in with the fabulous tstoaddicts sooner. Foolish me.

  2. Hey I just noticed something and apologies if this is old news and already obvious to everyone else, but those sand dunes are really useful on the beaches. The color blends best with the regular non-Heights beach sand, and you can visually extend the beach further inland. I’m seeing lots of design possibilities.

    Just noticed but what is with the haunted crossroads? Says unlocks during act 2 level 4 but it never unlocked for me. I’ve got everything now and was looking to see what I wanted to craft more of and seen that I was never able to craft it.

  4. I am simply saving all crafting currency until the last day. Then I can do a quick p,an to get everything I want (and how many I want of some specific items).

  5. Not only have I lost all my. Neighbours again temporarily, my game has decided that despite having unlocked all prize tract and dig prizes for all Acts, I need to reach crafting level 7 and unlock the Stone Gate to craft any more of them. I’m crafting level 9… Same with a couple of other crafting items, saying I need to unlock them from the prize tract to be able to craft more, and none of the crafting items have a tick beside them any more.
    Is that a server issue, too?
    I don’t want to log out and in again to see if it fixes it in case I can’t get back in…

  7. I have only crafted some from Act 1 and 2 and a bunch of ACT 3 Mud Homes and statues and gates all for my Egypt area.. They need to bring buying land with game cash back. Or give us the option to buy land tokens with Bo/Donuts

  8. OT – I thought I shot myself in the foot last night when I decided that since I had all the prizes I could go ahead and run Slick’s 8 hour task and finish up his quest. Then I realized I needed to send all my kids on one last 8 hour “write a novel” to earn as much currency as possible. After that I realized I forgot about earning bonuts for the next 9 days! Fortunately this morning I remembered Alissa posting the “Helpful Tip” existed in part 3 of his quest as well! Thanks Alissa!

    • The flip side of this is that if you have, say, 49 kids and your multiplier is high enough, that you might earn a similar amount of donuts by just tasking them for 24 hours. That way you don’t have to put them all on jobs individually twice/thrice a day. I religiously managed to do so in Acts 1&2, but as soon as I hit the target for Act 3, I sent Slick to finish his job because I couldn’t take it any more!

      • That’s not true, because the kids all earn premium-XP in the Slick task, even the non-premium kids.

        You only lose out on game-cash for the purpose of KEM/RTT farming. As far as earning bonuts from leveling up, the Slick jobs are a double-win.

        You get XP for level-up and event-bonuts at the same time.

  9. Stone Gate and Sandstone Statue have been fun to Craft multiples of (an I’ll use them later to enhance my Egypt area in Springfield) …. but it’s also nice to Craft multiples of Mudbrick Hovel and those Ancient Dig (always nice to earn more XP and Simpson’s $ with a Tap)! 😀👍🇪🇬

    • THIS! With SO many characters available, I wish EA would do a better job letting us know of all new tasks available – thanks for picking up their slack, Addicts!

      • I wish i bought enough of those tiny trees back at the first digging event. Now i could use a lot more to decorate with the new egyptian stuff. Bring those back EA!

        • I buying mystery boxes to catch up on the characters and buildings i missed from past events. But nothing replaces those missed decorations. I kick myself whenever i see neato walls and trees and such in other people’s Springfields. Wish EA made lots more old decorations available when they offer mystery boxes from past events.
