So I started the drone scan and it locked up (didn't count down) then it went weird and this happened below:

So now I have 4 agents in "inventory prison" lol, not sure what will happen if I try to use them but think I'll torture them for info a bit longer.
But my mum says I'm cool

  • So they stand there like a snapshot? That's a unique item in all the universe, albeit a lukewarm one. But you lost them as a source of revenue maybe. Huh. Quirky.
  • If you could store the green guy, this could indicate it might be available for purchase after the event ends.

    they're just "characters" for the event, all of them are made as characters, though in that state they're storable

    Interesting glitch.

  • Cool glitch! I hope you get to keep one after the event :)

  • He is like a character from tron. Hopefully we get to buy one later
  • I think they look like the green army men from Toy Story

  • Neat glitch that, certainly not something that you see everyday.
  • You started the drone scan, but it didn't switch to the night vision overlay?

    Instead there's individual green guys and you have the ability to store??

    That's an awful lot of money and donuts...

    Methinks me smells a rat...bag.

  • With farming those totals aren't completely obsurd. I had a similar glitch early in act 1 but I didn't get the agents stuck in storage so I think the situation is possible without any shenanigans.
  • No shenanigans, I've had it freeze 3 times when it starts (drone scan begins but doesn't start counting down) but this is the first time it changed to this screen (other 2 it just reset and I started again). I could move around my whole town but couldn't see buildings with ready to collect symbol, but could tap them and collect, plus all usual characters were invisible too.

    I've been playing since day 1 of release, even before the app store removal. Multiplier 930%, little house farm, every 4 hours I get about 25 donuts, or avg 100 a day. Before level 939 was available I had about 400 donuts saved and about a 180% multiplier, all my farming/donuts has come since then so you can see how quick it's built up.

    Update to this: I decided to "use" one of my army men, came up with dialog box, the word "error" and 25xp. It was randomly placed in my town and I can't select or move him, he's stuck in place, at least stuck in a sneaky ambush place lol

    Well that was short lived. He's now disappeared. During 1 cycle of the drone scan (he was other side of town to it) it started fine but then once I cleared the screen it headed straight to his location, but ran out of time. He was still there. Had a couple log-ins where he stayed but then left it 4 hours and he's gone. Must have a mission to spy on birthday presents whilst hiding in a pot plant.

    Is it still worthwhile to do the 20 second drone scan thing now that the agents are gone?
    And how about the foreign airplane rides?

    Doing the drone scan gives a few SD for Springfield Heights and then also junk for the railyard tasks. If you use those items then I think it's worth it. I am doing it every four hours still in order to stockpile those currency items.

    The key point is it will still give you those items even if you are maxed out, just like Big Claw. The Polyvac and Insanity Cauldron only give out cash once you hit the max.

    Agreed. That's why I keep playing it every time it's available. With the Vac I usually only do it about twice a week max.
  • I only use the vac to over fill my junk after I finish the railyard for the week. Guess I dont really need to do that now,but I probably will
