    I have a few questions:

    1. When the super hero HQ ( sorry if this is not the name) is upgraded it says I should earn more carbon rods, where am I earning the increased rate because I'm still only getting 15 from criminals?
    2. Do I need to leave my buildings so there is something for neighbours to tap or can I collect my payouts?
    3. Is there any strategy regarding neighbour visits?
    4. What are the spawn rates and Max amounts for the criminals?
    5. How do I activate my hand of justice power? When I long tap it just enters edit mode.
    6. Is there an in game notification when I have collected all criminals?
    7. What is the percentage chance of getting arbitrarim from criminals?
    8. Do the criminals try walk onto the screen like rigellians did or do we have to hunt them down?

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: ignore question 1 the payout of the HQ increases, so that leads me on to my next question, has anyone done a table of what level earns what rate? It appears that each level upgrade earns an extra 10 rods per 4 hours (for the first few upgrades anyway)

I really wish they would give us some new fences, bushes, flowers, trees ect to go along with the new buildings. That would make it more exciting for me. I love updates regardless of what they are and anything is better than ****.

    Please, speak for yourself. I also happen to be a woman and I personally love the superhero theme. Please don't try to generalise an entire demographic.

    Really? Did you not read the next word? Seems to be generalising the entirety of..herself. Or should women never have opposing opinions..

    Just a heads up I read the walkthrough and it appears after you unlock fall out boy homer is not needed so you can keep pie man on his 8 hour task to keep him earning carbon rods

    2. In my town there were buildings that neighbors had visited (yellow bubble) which still had floating cash symbols (and buildings that had the floating bubble which still had 6 hours left until the rent could be collected)...I was also able to tap on the nuclear power plant so it feels like Stonecutters (which would me we could clear buildings but I'm going to be tentative for a day just to make sure)
    3. Criminals only pay rods for the first 30 or so towns but buildings pay throughout your entire neighbor list (I don't think tapping criminals helps your neighbor but you receive cash, xp and doughnut chance...I'm not sure if I'll tap criminals past the rod point but I will tap all buildings
    4. People report a sound effect when there's a criminal in town (but I can't verify as I did my rounds at 3am eastern on silent). I didn't see any text notifications

    You can tap three criminals and three buildings in each town. After you finished catching three criminals you can still tap them, but they will just stand still for a second and nothing else will happen. If you did friends visits before the update then the taps you did before count as criminal catching. In that case you can only tap buildings in that town.

    Hope that explained everything.
    Wrong.

    You must have already done your regular Friend Actions for today. The criminals count as your regular Friend Actions - you get Rods and cash for the first 20(?) then just cash for the rest.

    You also get 3 extra Phone Taps. When someone taps on a phone in your town, the building gets a Radioactive Man Alert. When you tap on it you get Rods. I don't know how many, I haven't caught the number yet - plus, I think it's variable depending on how soon you tap it based on the push notifications I keep getting.

    Did you not read the preceding words? Now, is there any reason to say, "as a woman"? Secondly, don't make up rubbish and assign it to me- I'm on the defence of women, here. Enough of your gender stereotypes. Girls can like superheroes.

    I confirm that clearing a building doesn't prevent a neighbor from tapping it before the rent regenerates.

    Odd thing I saw in my town (a factor of someone not being updated to the point of tapping buildings yet, I'd guess), handshake from person A (slow updater) under a bubble from person B (fast updater). (sometimes you need to double tap on the atom signs (clear the money and then the bubble)) Also if you sit at one point in your town eventually the criminals will all come towards that point (although they are a bit slow so you probably will want to do a full town scan first)

    The one and only time the collect all button would be helpful in this update. I had so much to tap this morning :lol:
