Is there any use in continuing this chore? I get about 45 aliens by using the "piano player" tap, but only see a garbage can and a cell phone won.

    I usually only tap twice and then let the timer run out. That gets me a couple smart devices. And a tiny amount of garbage, could get more if I tapped more.

    The main use is it lets you stick pile both items past the limit. If you don't use either one, then it's probably not worth your time.

    Stockpiling garbage kinda disrupts my railyard rhythm. Typically I collect from the recycling places, send people to the dump, and then look at the railyard to determine which resource(s) I need to work on. By the time I'm done deciding the garbage is ready. But when I have like 5000 garbages I don't get that little time out period.

    What thing do we have with aliens? Do you mean robots?
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.

    Not aliens, sorry. Not sure what they are.

    I dunno. Was kinda of a nice treat last rail yard day to have close to 6000 bits of garbage ready to go and my communicators are almost up to 900 in case of future SH updates. So it's useful to me.

    Nice to stockpile. Usually when making the cans, plastic and bottles I have everyone working on that and homer left alone to make enough trash. 50 at a time is an annoying grind.
    I don't even know how many phones I have :):)

    The trash is annoying to me. I'm over 40k stock pile now. I wish other things would stock like other railyard items. I play the scanner constantly.

    Over 40k in trash? Dam that's a lot.

    The Vac and the scanner give smart devices. The vac can't be used once you are at the max however. Big Claw will randomly drop pharmaceutical pills too.

    So the only 2 that drop SH also drops rail stuff. Like SH can't be on its own! :D
