    Do we not get the Egg Nog house back instead of the Helter Shelter? Also, hardly any of my houses have Xmas light options.

    Possible spoiler







    so I didn't see this mentioned but Homer has a 24 hour task after his 4 hour task. Did I do it wrong? I thought the tunnels came after the 4 hour task?

    oh yeah, I had to speed through the 24 hour task. I forgot about that one.

    Thanks! But Oh man....I though we were off the hook when the first task was 12 hours. I sped that one up.

    hey! In my B town I just finished the first 4 hours task and was prompted to place the elf cave. So I guess it is the 4 hr task. have you checked the build menu?

    I don't buy donuts in my b town so I won't know till tomorrow.
    Nothing in my build menu but thanks for the heads up.
    Hope this is not a glitch in my game.

    I hope so to! Do you have the cave in your build menu? Maybe you just didn't get the prompt but it's there

    Guys, guys, guys. How many quests do you have to do in order to unlock every event feature, including rewards from visiting friends etc? I built the workshop and the elf thing, Homer and lisa finished their 4h quest and now homer is on a 12h quest (not 24 as someone wrote here). Do I have to wait for more quests before visiting neighbors?

    I just find it too early to have to deal with the usual “why there not everything for free and that is so expencive” part of the update yet. To be honest I’m thrilled so far and I haven’t been pleased with tsto for a long time.

    As for the walkthrough so far and what it entails:

    SPOILERS

    Walkthrough so far

    Toy Workshop 12 hours
    Homer & Lisa Make presents for 4 hours
    Martin Gets his Ice princess skin as the tie-in for this Sunday’s episode
    Built the Elf Cave

    The Elf Cave provides you with daily quests which give you decorations (1st door HomerFever Snowman, 2nd door Burn’s Mansion Lights etc) and one more elf which will give you extra presents currency
    The concept has been taken from the snow cutters event (1 riddle per day). If you complete everything in 24 hours (3 quests) you also get 100 presents currency.

    Make Homer Get bossed around by elves 12h



    When your neighbours update you will be able to get 6 presents from 3 actions (3actionsx2presents=6)

    The Event is divided in 2 phases. Both phases give you 16 awards when you reach the number of presents currency
    1st award Christmas Float 580 presents
    2nd award Frosty the Hitman
    3rd award Toy Workshop Bell
    4th award Sponsored Church (Skin)
    5th award Festive Light Plunger
    6th award First Ever Christmas Tree
    7th award Bonestorm Santa
    8th award Nativity Scene

    Characters which earn Christmas Currency

    Homer - Making Presents 2pr (Santa Homer hasn’t yet being checked)
    Lisa - Make Musical Instruments 2pr
    Marge- Prepare Christmas Treats 4pr
    Bart- Be a Nutcracker 3pr
    Ned, Todd&Rod -Take the boys snowmobiling 9pr

    After the second elf door you can use Apu as well

    Apu- Make executive stress toys 2pr

    Buildings which earn Christmas Currency

    Holiday Tree 10pr
    Present Depot 8 pr
    Elf Home 5pr


    this should have a dedicated thread... !!
    thanks a lot

    thanks a lot

    At some point perhaps...


    Homer goes on strike 24h

    3rd elf door lights for Fat Tony's mansion


    Important Thing to remember: the building sand decorations which give you christmas currency aka presents will not give you ANY presents at a neighbour's town. That means that stay away from the trees, the deposit and the elf house!

    Second after some time the christmas currency from your neighbours will drop to 3presents per town. It will thus work like the probes of Halloween or the FP.

    With all honesty I cannot tell you for sure.

    If we go by the example of the past events then it will come up at some point after Homer’s strike.

    Why is that?

    SPOILER






    Santa is paying with candy canes. The elves like it and as a result they have cavities. The logical process now is that after Homer does’t want to be payed as the elves and therefore is on strike he will alert the feds. The feds in the game are going to towns to see on whether the elves are been treated well (this has been mentioned as the task they have in the files if you see the *speculations* thread) etc. So you will need about 3 days from the start of the event until you get your feds and start getting presents from other towns with their aid.
