PSA - How to Animate Any Building

Prev1
I didn't realise this, so thanks for posting!

Lucille also has a similar task where she robs houses and you can get them to activate.

    He has three jobs, one for houses, one for restaurants, and one for businesses.

    The 10hr task allows you to animate any building. Just place the building closest to him prior to enacting the task. So nice to see these otherwise dormant buildings animated (love the SequelShop going during this event).

    Wow, I set him on this task a fair bit and never paid attention to where he went. Great hidden feature.

    Hey, thanks for this. Did the same trick as with Lucille B and the nightmare house. His 10 sent him into a shop, moved the shop and the Sequel Shop to a remote location. Stored the shop he was in, hit the task again and the Sequel sign is working! Then just move the shops back.

    I shall be doing this asap. Can't remember the last time I saw the Sequel Stop animation.

    Absolutely! Remember, it works for ANY building. Have fun!

    that's why he's a great capper for us to get at the end of the 60 levels. the skeleton key character.

    I just lit up my Bad Dream with his 12 hour task yesterday.

    Also, this gets rid of the last lingering reason I had to buy Collider. (who can work at the Super Collider). If Wise Guy can go there too, now I'm set in case they ever sell the Super Collider w/black hole again.

    Maybe if we send the Wise guy there the black hole will appear :? ...wishful dreaming

    Check the wiki. I tried it with the Springfield Arms, which was all by itself but he ran off to nearest faraway business. I had to do, I think, the 12h task to get him to visit the Arms.

    Agree. It appears EA made this special for the final level - gave us a character that can activate any building. Loving the SequelStop and Tenta Corp animations. Can't wait to try them all.

    You can move the black hole over during the animation for the Super collider. Or did you not earn/purchase the black hole? I'm not sure if they sold the collider without the black hole at some point. That would be a let down.

    When it was re-released it did not come with the black hole (I think). I think on some level they are trying to keep a few objects unreleased to appease long term players who feel they should be rewarded for playing early on (whether right or wrong).

    Found his weakness. He runs away from the Re-Neducation Center and won't animate it.

    That's right. I don't think he wanted to go to Moe's Family Farm (or whatever it's called). Darn.

    I've trapped him in the bad dream house with his 12 hour task for some time now. Great hints with his other tasks
