MONORAIL Q & A AND STRATEGY

Earning Bells and Whistles

The following are ways to earn Bells and Whistles (for free):
-Daily Play Bonus
Provided you play daily everyone should get this at least twice. 10,000 in total
-Projects Complete Bonus
This changes from day to day please see the table on the first post
-Projects
For details on caps see the first post
-Neighbour Visits
You can earn 6 Bells and Whistles for your first 90 actions, so that's 540 a day
-Visits from Neighbours
Each time a neighbour taps one of your buildings you get stinklines on it, clearing stinklines rewards you 1 Bell and Whistle per building
-Possums from Station
Stations produce a minimum of 8 possums every four hours, one possum earns 10 Bells and Whistles. To increase your amount of possums place more tracks, every 12 tracks gets an extra possum added to the total that spawns every four hours

The following are extra ways of earning Bells and Whistles (for donuts):
-Dumping Permit (60 donuts)
Doubles the amount of Bells and Whistles earned per tap on neighbour visits (I.e.12 duct tape per tap) Giving you a total of 1080 Bells and Whistles
-Little Lisa's Recycling Plant (200 donuts)
Every 4 hours earns 350 Bells and Whistles
-Krustys Drive Thru Station (150 donuts)
Same as regular station above

I don't recommend getting any premiums just for there ability to earn Bells and Whistles as I will now show you it is possible for a freemium player to unlock all prizes with a bit of wiggle room also.

And Now For The Maths

This is for the whole lot of act 2, I would do a daily one but there is variables that change from day to day.
This is for the whole lot of act 3, I would do a daily one but there is variables that change from day to day.
Daily play bonus (everyone will get atleast twice)- 10,000
Projects complete bonus (this is the sum of all daily bonuses)- 19,200
Project limits (The max amount you can earn from projects)- 160,000
Neighbour visits (This figure is for all 90 actions done everyday)- 5,940
Possums (This is the base amount collected 3 times a day)- 7,920
Total=203,060

You only need 154,550 to get the final prize so this gives you 48,510 extra

    First tip:
    If you experience crashing when putting homer on his practice conducting task try building the station first.

    Like SH, you can produce above the limit for the building, providing you are below the cap when you assign the task. If you get to 1950 trash cans, then deploy everyone you can exceed the cap by a few hundred, all of which are useable. After a while, I'm sure it'll be no big deal, but helpful in the early grinding...

    Does collecting currency work the exact same as SH!?!

    Yeah, but remember everyone was complaining about how quick the tasks were! Not so much the case now!!

    Anybody got tips for investing in blueprints? I get the feeling that can become very difficult very quickly. I've found at some point you need more than one type of resources to get the blueprints.

    Oh, I think there will be some serious forum angst about the similar mechanics... Not as much as when Neuro finds out about the secret prize wheel, but people will not be happy...

    You also get blueprints from neighbour interactions: 6 for the first 30 actions, plus one from each of your buildings that a neighbour dumps on.

    FYI - I rushed the "Birth another spunkler" task to free Brandine and was not given another spunkler. On chat with EA right now. Just a head's up in case anyone else rushed her...

    Sorry, Neuro, couldn't resist... Good to know you read the threads carefully, though!

    Was thinking about doing it myself, but will wait to see what happens. I was worried it was just an event task like the 30 second collect garbage or something.

    I don't have the update yet. Is there some way I can install it manually? (I've never done a manual install before and have NO idea how it's done)
    I'm on Android

    Thanks :)
