Tip for Act 4

Credit to cityscaper who posted this on TSTO Addicts:
For anyone struggling with this act, Here’s a helpful Act 1 tip which uses the both Hibbert Family Practice building and the Springfield General Hospital:
There is actually a way to split into two groups the characters used for the quests in Act 1, with each group going to a different building. You can actually send the first group to the Hibbert Family Practice building, while sending the second group to Springfield General Hospital.
This is helpful when you are near the end of each quest. You should send to the Hibbert Family Practice building the minimum number of characters needed to finish the quest, and then send the rest of your characters to Springfield General Hospital (who will be counted for the new quest).
Step-by-step instructions;
1. First, store your Springfield Hospital, thus assuring that no one will currently go there (but first make sure the hospital is empty!) Again, please make sure the hospital is empty before storing it.
2. Then send on a quest just the number of characters you need to finish the current quest – they will all go to Hibbert Family Practice.
3. Now place your Springfield General Hospital back in Springfield.
4. Send the rest of your characters on the quest. They will all go to the hospital, not to Hibbert Family Practice.
5. After the four hours are up, remember to first tap on the Hibbert Family Practice building to finish the old quest, and then tap on the Springfield General Hospital, which will credit the new quest.
I have tested this out several times to make sure it works.
Hope this helps anyone who needs the help. This event really will need you to log in promptly every four hours 4-5 times a day.
ACT 2: Store the Rigellian Construction site, send what characters are needed to finish a part-they will go to the Nuclear plant control building, replace the site and send the rest.
ACT 3: Store the police station, send what characters are needed to finish a part, they will go to a KEM. replace the station and send the rest. Make sure to release the KEM first and start the next part, then click the police station to get the currency to apply to the next part
ACT 4 (thanks KLMaker): The default for Act 4 is Lard Lad Donuts, (I have 2 so I have to store both), secondary is Kwik-E-Mart again, and they get split between the two of them as well.
I noticed when all have completed the tasks, the face that is always shown in top left corner is Bart's; so I always make sure he is one of the group that finishes off a Part, rather than accidentally tapping the wrong location and end up wasting them on the same Part.
Hope this helps anyone who needs the help. This event really will need you to log in promptly every four hours 4-5 times a day.

  • I'm glad that the characters go to the hospital and family practice this time because the last few events had them going to the Simpsons House and I had to use the "send needed characters first then wait 5 or 10 minutes and send the rest" method. I just done this on my last cycle since I need 25 stethoscopes to get the token. The only problem I have with this (EA, not you of course) is that the hospital earns cash and xp once every 24 hours so when I use the sky finger monument every day I try to keep the earning rate at the hospital level with the SFM. I think act 4 will be the trickiest act out of them all if trying to finish in the event.
  • Helpful tip, thanks.
  • My buildings are too close together for it to work, bummer😐
  • I moved mine temporarily
  • Everybody has been going to the hospital except for Dr Hibbert's Dad, who always goes to the library. No idea why.
    "Not my Shmoo!"
  • He'll end up like Moe.

    Thanks Ellie for this thread. Would you mind changing the title for act 2 please, as it looks like a similar strategy can be applied. This was posted in another thread, credit to @Dougie_Powers_17:
    By the way, anyone else have the non-premium characters go for hardhats at the Rigellian construction site.?
    Characters can use the Rigellian construction site and the nuclear power plant.
    Default location is the Rigellian construction site if you have both placed in town. The 2 premiums go to the library.

  • I think it is the other way around as they go to the Rigellian construction in my main town and the Nuclear plant is not stored.

    Yes Ellie, you are right, thanks for the correction, I’ll edit my post.

    I had a go with the OP's suggestion and it worked, not that it mattered as I was about to come away from Act 1 anyway.
    But I thought I would give it a go for Act 2 though.

    Made sure the building was empty first as they were staggered.
    I stored Rigellian Construction Site and sent some to steal Hard Hats and they went to the Control Building of the power plant.
    I replaced the Rigellian Construction Site and the rest went there to steal Hard Hats.
    I have temporarily moved the Site as it was right next to Control Building.

    Thanks @EllieGuseman.

  • Both premium characters can earn stethoscope and hard hats. I am assuming (hoping) all 4 characters will earn all 4 currencies.

    Just done this neat tip for Act 3 and it works a treat.

    The Police Station is the default, (inevitable really), stored it, sent some to, (I think it was), Find Police Badges In Cereal Boxes and they went to the Kwik-E-Mart, replaced Police Station and the rest went there.

    With this event being this attention seeking and want a fuss made over it every 4 hours, but able to get eleven characters in each time, (got no premium's), this is really helping me to get the last part started of each Act.

    The numbers are still too high though.
  • Is there any advantage in sending the characters to 2 different locations?
  • Yes. When you are near to getting a prize, but you only need a certain amount, but not the full amount, you can send only what is needed to one location and the rest to another location, that way the second set will apply to the next prize instead of being lost. Fully explained in the original post.

    Agree, it was all explained as Ellie says.

    The alternative is, if you are 15 Event Currency away from the end of Part 2, (for example), you send 3 on the event, then let's say 30 minutes later you send the rest on the event and they will count towards Part 3.
    The problem is, 4 hours later you only have 30 minutes to get those 3 characters out, a minute later and they all count towards Part 2.
    But they cannot be carried over which means 8 characters and 40 Event Currency have been wasted.

    Assuming you cannot sit on your gaming device for any length of time because you have stuff to do, splitting the characters to 2 different locations makes a difference.
    Or getting Bart screened when you really don't need it.

    I meant to post this yesterday, but I was sending them in, collecting, then doing it again, (Rinse and repeat), as soon as and managed 3 lots between 3pm and 1am.
    So a good start.

    The default for Act 4 is Lard Lad Donuts, (I have 2 so I have to store both), secondary is Kwik-E-Mart again, and they get split between the two of them as well.

    I noticed when all have completed the tasks, the face that is always shown in top left corner is Bart's; so I always make sure he is one of the group that finishes off a Part, rather than accidentally tapping the wrong location and end up wasting them on the same Part.
  • Thanks. Added to main post.

    Where did I just lose 10 Wheel Cakes???

    I was 20 away from completing Part 1.
    So stored both LLD, sent 7 to work at one of the KEM's replaced both LLD,
    then sent other 4 in last night.

    Somehow, 2 characters weren't in any of them???

    I think I will store one of each building till this is not necessary.
  • I have started syncing before exiting in one of my towns as I was sure something similar happened to me too.
