If You’re Having Issues Collecting Sunglasses, Note: Some of you are having issues earning sunglasses. The task to earn the Sunglasses has to take place at the Springfield Heights Theater. The files do indicate that the backup location, in case you haven’t yet unlocked the theater, is the Brown House. Unfortunately, there must be an issue with the coding because even with a Brown House and no Theater it’s not working. So, unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about it right now but contact EA or wait until they correct it with a patch. Odds are they’ll release a patch shortly once folks complain about it.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Who’s ready for more Van Houten fun? Act 2 of the Van Houtens has arrived!
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on September 16th. However, Act 3 will start on August 30th (note the Sunday start date).
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary, Milhouse and Annika…
Nelson: Whoa. Is that…Van Houten? With a girl?
Sherri and Terri: She’s pretty. And so mature looking.
Janey: Wait, which one of you said which part of that?
Sherri and Terri: I said she’s pretty. And I said she’s mature looking.
Milhouse: It looks like my plan is working. Everyone is smitten with envy at the sight of such a power couple.
Annika: Fine. Just don’t touch me.
Milhouse: Yes, milady!
Annika: That includes with your eyes.
This triggers the Act 2 questline, Sidekicked Aside, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Milhouse and Annika, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (115). Sidekicked Aside is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…
Here’s the Act 2 Synopsis from EA:
Now that Milhouse is the center of everyone’s attention, Lisa starts to become jealous and is having
difficulty dealing with Milhouse’s sudden popularity. And since Milhouse no longer has time to hang out
with Bart, the two decide to team up to try and break up Milhouse and Annika.
Lisa attempts to suggest that Milhouse and Annika might be related, but that plan falls short, so Bart
convinces Milhouse that everyone at school is laughing at him behind his back because Annika wears the pants in their relationship. With some additional persuading from Bart, Milhouse publicly breaks up with Annika.
However, after everyone sees Milhouse break up with someone much cooler than him, they crown
Milhouse the most popular kid in Springfield Elementary.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the Sidekicked Aside questline, which is what the Act 2 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 2 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 2…
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 2:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
