The Van Houtens Act 4 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s ready to finally get those gosh dang Van Houtens out of their lives?!  Act 4 is finally here, the final Van Houten Act, almost time to kick this event to the curb.

Remember, this is the FINAL Act of Van Houtens.  So this, and all other Acts, will leave our games on September 16th (next Wednesday).  So finish up all the prize tracks before they’re gone for good!

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary…

Jimbo: Hey, Milhouse. What’s your hat size? I wanna get you a cap just like mine.
Milhouse: Why don’t you just give me yours?
Jimbo: That’s a great idea! This is gonna be your best birthday party this week!
Bart: Unbelievable. Milhouse is friends with Jimbo now? Every time I try to make him uncool, he ends up even cooler.
Database: Excuse me, Superfriend, if you’re done monologuing, it’s your turn to roll the dodecahedron.
Bart: *sigh* Okay here goes.
Database: Gack! That’s the icosahedron! Bart, get your head in the game!
Bart: Look, the only reason I agreed to play Dungheaps and Doofuses with you guys is because you’re the only ones left who can’t get into Milhouse’s dumb birthday parties.
Database: Actually, we hacked the app and acquired a reservation to tonight’s late seating.
Bart: Of course you did.

This triggers the Act 4  questline, The Van Houten Curse, and is followed by 4hr  tasks for Bart and Database, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (155).  The Van Houten Curse 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 4…

The Van Houtens Act 3 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Note: Sorry guys, I was running around this morning and quickly put this up without logging into my game.  That’ll teach me to post without checking in-game.  Always do it, and the one time I don’t it bites me in the butt.  Anyway, Gil is back in Springfield as well…

I’ll have a breakdown post on this in the coming days.  But do note that Secretary Van Houten does NOT earn event currency.  And Marine One earns 4.25% bonus on cash and XP.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Sunday!  Feel free to consider this your Open Thread.

Who’s ready for more Van Houten fun?  Act 3 of the Van Houtens has arrived!

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on September 16th.  However, Act 4 will start on September 8th (note the Tuesday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary and Milhouse…

Lewis Clark: Hi, Milhouse. Can I come to your birthday party this weekend?
Milhouse: Sherri and Terri got the last two spaces.
Lewis Clark: But they’re in line behind me.
Milhouse: They made their reservation using the Milhouse Birthday Attendance App.
Lewis Clark: Then why are they in line?
Sherri and Terri: Suspenders and a belt, fellah. Can’t take any chances on getting shut out.
Bart: Milhouse, didn’t you just have a birthday party? And why are you standing behind a maître d’s podium?
Milhouse: Pfft. That birthday party was pre-Annika. I’ve got so many requests to hang out now, I’ve had to schedule multiple birthday party “reenactments” through the end of the month. Lewis, would you take the late seating two weeks from Friday?
Lewis Clark: I guess I’ll have to.

This triggers the Act 3  questline, The Most Popular Girl in School, and is followed by 4hr  tasks for Bart and Milhouse, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (105).  The Most Popular Girl In School 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 3…

The Van Houtens Act 2 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

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…
