For those of you who have the gate...

Prev13
Not having reached that point yet, I can only guess, but I would say that there's still the shopkeepers tasks for donuts as well as distributing blobs to neighbours and clearing out your town so neighbours can drop blobs on you. Plus monorail tracks for donuts. Still lots to do, but no real stress (other than things being reeaaalllllly slow!).

    Its a shame they have no real incentive to keep collecting s'mores after you get the final prize, donuts would have been nice. I know we are getting 20 donuts each week the daily challenge offers it but a few extra never hurts. The only reason to continue with the campfire is to upgrade it, which for me does not show an increase in spawn rate........

    I got it this morning. I am disappointed that there isn't incentive to continue, but I will keep upgrading my campfire, visiting neighbors etc. I may log in every few hours instead of every hour, but I kind of doubt it. :)

    Gonna stockpile all craftable items till my heart is content. And only make the items I want extra of. Averaging that I have a consistent 1000 extra and spending 500 a day on each for crafting. As well.

    I have not yet reached the Gate.

    However, afterward:

    I will continue to collect crafting supplies, awaiting the next round of crafting prizes.

    I have been using non-Halloween participants to continue working at the Recycling Depot to earn Monorail track pieces.

    I am not working on Springfield Heights anymore until/unless EA allows the Condo, Business Center, Parkade to change skins like the Radioactive Man statue.

    While I don't have the gate yet I did manage to craft everything I wanted from act 1 so I've basically been working just for the S'mores for the Gate so I've just stuck with working on whatever I need to upgrade the campfire with the occasional switch for the daily task then right back to the fire. The only change I plan to make after I have the Gate is to knock off a few of the yellow tasks some of the kids have to do.

    Outside of the event and the kids I'll also pull my adults off the 24 hour tasks I've been using to keep them out of the way and change them back to 4 hours so I can bring in money faster. I leveled up much faster than I was able to save up for a building, buy it, and then wait for it to be finished so that right now I'm at level 53 or so, but story wise I'm back somewhere in the 40's working on the 300K for the strip club and Nelson's mom.

    Am still holding out hope that more craftables will show up in an update. I have an excess of 2000+ of each right now with nothing to spend it on as I stockpiled last year. Trying to stay optimistic that EA didn't design an event where returning players would end up with 10,000+ extra in currency with nothing to spend it on.

    Maybe I'll replace some tennis courts with wailing walls if not.

    For now
    - upgrading campfire
    - working on SH
    - daily tasks

    I do like that this event is less of a grind though. But please EA, new content please! Spending and buying things is part of the fun too!

    ETA: not that it's likely my wishlist will be seen - but it's rigellian shrubs, the drive in, maude, a gremalien npc, frink's dog, and NEW CONTENT THAT INCLUDES A CHARACTER

    Same thing here man. Trying to get as many Spooky Groves as I can before this event ends.

    It's odd that we are getting smores in the Daily Play Boxes too, because with the Act prizes being so easy to get to hardly one is going to need them and most of us will just have an excess and nothing to show for it. Usually day 5 - the mystery box substitute - is something better but it's more smores as well.

    Wow, people who have the Gate must have a lot of free time. I'm doing a BSC in Film and Television Production at the University of York and I'm still a way off Model Donut. Managed to craft Hugo thankfully though.

    There certainly are some players here who admit to having a fair amount of spare time. Some may choose to play the game on their breaks for a few minutes or replace an activity done in spare time with the game.

    I personally have a heavy load, but a flexible schedule and often end up working in evenings and weekends. I have to meet deadlines, doesn't matter when I work as I have few meetings. It helps me think to take breaks doing something repetitive or routine. I don't watch TV much if at all and playing this game replaces TV if you will. (oops just realized that might come across as snarky, can't think of a better example, bad coincidence your industry is film, sorry - it's not intended)

    Just saying it can be done otherwise. Plus it's a great, fun way to take a break and relieve some stress on the hard days.
