So EA, how can we craft U.B.O. ?

Prev1
Have you checked your inventory? Maybe you did get him, after all.

    I missed it by 500, I was hoping they would extend the event. I don't think I will buy it, I'd rather save the donuts for Christmas.

    @mwdalton: The Hover copter is the only prize I see in the crafting menu. And U.B.O. isn't placed in my inventory. I believe only small prices like the hunanb test subject and shrubs can end up in your inventory. Let's hope EA adds U.B.O. today in the crafting menu for a reasonable amount of candy.

    I believe that it says prizes may be crafted it doesn't specifically state UBO is available . The prizes were attainable but it did take effort and planning. I got UBO several days ago and I never purchased any of the premium items like the ray gun license or portal. I know that some players had circumstances beyond their control though

    I worked with the techs last night because there was an issue with my not getting credit for ufo hits and Regalians. I missed by a few hundred and didn't get the hovercraft or UBO. There was hope it would extend but guess not. Maybe I'm not the only one with this issue....

    Same here...

    I mean i work, i went on a trip. But i still checked my game at least twice a day during the event and i still missed the hovercopter and UBO.

    Should we sleep or work less? :evil:

    Same situation. I spent a lot of time and am at 14597. I bought the ray gun and spend way too much $ on this game. This has to be one of the most expensive games I've ever played especially to not even get the final prize. It says you can craft it, but when it takes you to craft items it isn't there. If you think about purchasing an average video game it cost $60. By continually making in app purchases it is very easy to drop a lot more $ on this. I am not happy that I spend all day every day playing this game and this last one was not completed.

    I love the Simpsons and thereby Tapped out, but it sometimes looks like EA forgets a lot of people have a life next to the game and that the funny commercial they made from Tappet out becomes a reality.

    It takes so much of your time, it isn't fun anymore. I think they put the goals so high so people don't finish too soon and start complaining they are bored. Well let them find another game to play next to Tapped out.

    The restrictions didn't help as well. You had to play multiple times a day (due the time it took for aliens to spawn in your Springfield), which is for some people impossible with their job.

    I got the UBO easily, and didn't buy a license or even set any alarms. It sucks for you guys who didn't get him, though I thought it was easily attainable.

    I got both the Diet sign and the UBO, and in the trophy menu it says:

    "Looks like you missed these prizes, but you can still try to craft them."

    They are not in the Crafting menu. The only prize item in my crafting menu is the Hover-Copter, and I know there were other prize items in it before.

    In my secondary game that I started late it also says I didn't get the Diet Sign or UBO, but they're not in the crafting menu either. I didn't get the Mutant **** or Donut Torture Device, and they ARE in the Crafting menu.

    Looks like this is a glitch to me.

    Oh, and the UBO skin DOES wind up in your inventory. I believe all the prizes go there, then you have to pull them out.

    1 advice for those who can not craft the UBO: EA Support, i think they know about the glitch and just maybe you will get him if you start a ticket? Worth a try :wink:

    I got the DIET sign already and now I'm being offered a chance to craft it. I'd like to craft U.B.O. but it looks like I have to craft the sign first. I'm afraid if I tap the "craft now" I will end up with two signs and use all of my crafting materials! Silly, I know. Can anyone help with this?

    I already have the DIET sign and tapped the craft button. I already have the UBO so wasn't concerned. Nothing happens.

    Oh, and the only reason I got the UBO was my cat. If George didn't wake me up during the night for extra food I wouldn't have squished so many aliens and gathered the extra bags. This event has been a bit tight and I think they are taking the fun out of the game in the hope people will buy donuts.

    Its the same for me, I've got the DIET sign and UBO, and it says I missed out but I can craft them. I've got the Matt Groening stuff to keep me busy though.

    Strange, I was just on my game and was doing some squishing and unlocked the last gold bag before UBO and went to see how much more I needed for him (I was way off) but I was greeted with the message saying I missed out on him and I can craft it but it not there. So i thought that there is still more time and the game has glitches as I still got a gold bag.
