Around the World is Nearing the End… (& Info About Norbert’s Plane & What to Craft)

A Quick Note: There’s a glitch right now for many of you with Norbert’s Plane.  You’re unable to get it.  There’s a thread about it here on EA’s forum and a few of you have mentioned that you’ve contacted EA about it.  EA has advised some of you that they will be releasing a patch to resolve this issue.  I have not spoken with EA about this, so I’m just going off of what some of y’all are telling me. My best advice is to contact EA, let them know you’re impacted as well.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Around the World Event Ends TOMORROW March 7th.  (I just realized I made an error on my time from yesterday, it appears it ends at 9am ET, 2pm GMT)

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

About Uncle Norbert and the Golden Train

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today is the day many of us have been waiting for since the Around the World Event started…it’s the day we get Uncle Norbert and FINALLY figure out how the heck to get the elusive Golden Train.

And with that let’s take a look at unlocking Uncle Norbert, his questline, unlocking the Golden Train and Uncle Norbert’s tasks…

Around the World 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, Around the World Crafting post….where I give you the how tos 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 about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for the entire event.

Addicts Housekeeping Notes: Osaka Post Updates, Airplane Timer & Cleatus

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick post about a couple of changes we made/issues we’re seeing from you guys in the comments….

First on the Osaka Flu

ico_aroundtheworld_osakaflumenu_iconactive

I’ve updated the post to correct my mistake about the payouts when you level up..Now that I’ve had this (leveling up) happen to me, and leveled up, I can tell you that when you level up you’ll add an additional Osaka Virus to your town.  So you can end up with a total of 5 Osaka Viruses roaming your town…

Now on the Plane Ticket Timer..

ico_cur_aroundtheworld_planeticket_lg

Many of you are noting that your Timer isn’t working.  You leave the game and it doesn’t continue to count down from the 20m mark.  Instead it restarts at 20m when you go back into your game.

Of course you should contact EA with any bugs you’re experiencing in your game, you can contact them here.

But an Addicts Reader has posted a solution that’s worked for them (I also put this at the top of the Norbert post):

On kindle hard close kindle. Start again. Open tsto. Keep game open until first 20 min cycle completes. Stay in your Springfield. Keep it active . Do not visit krusty land. Do not visit neighbors. This fixed it permanently for me. Only have a Kindle to check it on though.

Although they state this works for Kindles, try it on other devices as well if you’re having a problem.  See if that helps.  If not, contact EA.

And finally on missing Cleatus…

A few of you are reporting you’ve stored him initially and he’s disappeared. I would remind you to check your entire inventory for him (not just the character section), as there are times when new characters (and items) aren’t categorized yet.

If you’ve checked your entire inventory and you still can’t find him than contact EA, you can contact them here.

And that’s it my friends.  A few notes about issues we’re seeing!

I’ll be back in a bit with some more pressing Should I Buy posts…including the returning items that are leaving our games shortly…
