Schematics - what am I doing wrong??

I've gotten a total of 101 schematics so far, which is one Fragrant Spy-acinths and one Secret Bus Shelter and I still need 70 odd more before I can hit level 2 Research facility..

Meanwhile, I've gotten 13285 intel which seems right on target.

Seems only way to get them is the daily Situation Room or tapping tan agents...

Am I doing something wrong here ?

  • No. It is the same for everybody.
  • Yes it seems to be a recurring theme around the board. Most people have only crafted the flower and bus shelter, and some have gotten a daily task that has allowed us to get the mailbox too. I'm nowhere near getting a second of any of those yet.
  • All we can do now is wait to see if a patch comes out to fix this problem.

    Other events were like this too. You start out getting so few crafting materials but, by the end, you have more than you need.
  • Things are working properly. Bi- monthly hysteria is popular. That's what we know about the fan base of the Simpsons. Oh My God This is Impossible is how half of these events are greeted. Then the prize tracks get completed easily. It's the 2nd part of that two step process that gets forgotten monthly. I would recommend not forgetting that this game is easy. Focus on the Buddha, and the sexy calm associated therewith, then imagine yourself levitating into the light.

    Except for that one recent event where it was not completed easy the first or second act. Some people couldn't make it. The rest of us probably were lucky to have "help". In other words, sometimes there really is an incorrect calculation.

  • I still dont see where the crafting menu is. I have 69 schematics but i dont see where you use them. Anyone else having this issue? Is there something i need to do to trigger the crafting?

    Tap the Chalice icon next to friends button, then on the left side of screen there's menu buttons to press for the event, press the blue schematics with the little yellow ruler. May have to slide the buttons up down vertically to see it cuz there's 5 buttons). (If it's not there then yeah you didn't activate something. Try tapping a friend in case you haven't done that in 24 hours, & look closely at event menus to see if you're leaving something undone, such as your first Dossier missions).

    The crafting building is the hidden research building,that's the medium sized building with 2 small smoke stacks.

    I'm not sure it's a problem, I think it's just designed to slow the crafting down so it takes the entirety of the event.

    That would make sense for the prize track where there's only one of each item to win. The point of crafting shouldn't be just to have a second prize track but to be able to craft multiples of items we want. How will we do that if the currency is this low?

    That assumes that it will remain this low throughout the event. Act 2 could bring higher drop rates of schematics from tan men. Or drops from friend taps.
  • I have 84 schematics total with >14,000 intel. Not getting drops from agents and not had daily challenge rewards for these either.

    Yeah, here's hoping that was the plan all along.
