Tip for Act 4



  • I was robbed of 30 wheelcakes earlier on. Should have made it up to 110 but ended up with 80!

    I had all the none premium characters on the job in 2 Lard Lads but when I clicked on them both one after the other it only recorded some of them!

    Very frustating!

    I randomly get extra ones collecting cash from buildings. I see the finger pointing and when I check, my number has gone up.

    I know everyone is on their task, as I just collected/put them back on.

    There is a third building which characters can go to earn wheel cakes, Retro Lard Lad. Lard Lad Donuts is still the default building but RLL is the secondary location if all LLD is stored or not owned and then the Kwik-E-Mart is the third and last location.

    It would make more sense if RLL was the default location since its more expensive and limited time (not counting it being in the yearbook), then LLD as the secondary location while the KEM is still the last location since it costs cash and is easier to unlock.

    I wouldn't know as I do not have Retro Lard Lad.

    I actually heard someone mention it somewhere that their characters went to RLL but I had it in storage so I tried it out and found it was a possible location. I prefer it to LLD mainly because of its look and had forgotten about it since I couldn't make any designs with it when I got it 3 years ago.

    I haven't got any final character but I have had 3/4 tokens, because I have already spent them.
    You don't have to complete final Part of the Prize Track before the end of the event, you only have to get it started and you are allowed to finish it once the event has finished.

    Act's 1 to 3 for me are 40/55/90 respectively out of 400.
    I am on Act 4 and the 4th lot of 4hrs for the token, and another 3 lots to go, once that is finished I will concentrate on Part 5 as I'm already on Act 4 anyway.
    Then I will probably divide between Act 3 and either 1 or 2, as Act 3 is furthest along than the first two.

    I expect to get Act 4 and maybe Act 3 before the event ends and Act's 1 and 2 will definitely be afterwards, which may include Act 3 as well.
    I'm sure someone will suggest donuts.

    Both of the other two are on the final parts each, one is only 65 in and the other is 0 in, but I have all 4 tokens so I'm happy about that anyway lol

    Ooh you got nothing to worry about then, should be able to get it all done by the 12th.
    But if not, like me, I will at least be getting 1 & 2 after the event has finished, so I will have the final parts of all Act's level pegging at the same amount so they complete at the same Thumbs Up.
    Just in case if the option disappears if I only complete 1 of them.
  • I have noticed you can switch on the act 1 window for example and just click what you need to complete the act,and then click on the act 2 window to start the second act, that way, you are splitting your characters to do half each in each act, that’d how I have been doing it, and had no problems completing it all
    It has been quite intense trying to complete it all as I feel the numbers are high for this one,but generally no problems, admittedly I have used a few doughnuts here and there to complete a few(I somehow ended up on 345 out of 350 for one prize so just used 2 doughnuts to finish it
    So got all the prizes so far and nearly got the token for act 4(need 2 more full lots) should have it all completed in time for Thursday end event although I’m hoping even if I haven’t, they will let you complete the prize and collect it if you have started it after the event has finished(usually they do)
  • Does anybody know when on the 12th we need to finish by?

    I would have to disagree with you there, whether you use the logo in the top right corner, the individual icons in the task bar or their individual jobs list, it doesn't really make any difference in my experience.

    Let's say you need 4 or 6 characters, for example, to finish a part, so you send them in and it goes something like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.... Oh @!# etc, out of force of habit.
    So you store the building to get them out as you don't want to use donuts to rush, but there was someone else in there as well so you've lost that money.
    You have to send them back in to the event plus find work for the other character/s that were already in there.

    Interestingly, Mabel collects Police Badges in the Library not the Police Station.

  • Sorry don't understand stand what do u have to do for act 4 is it just store the lad donuts and put them back out?
  • I’m gonna have to use Donuts for the first time ever during an event today. So unnecessary. So much hard slog and I’m not gonna get it done normally for the first time. The game shouldn’t be a hard slog, EA! It should be fun!

    It is a trick to use all characters when you are getting near the end of a part.

    For example, if you were on Part 4, the Token, and you are on 370 Wheel Cakes out of 400.
    If you put all 11 characters in, they will earn 55 Event Currency, (Wheel Cakes), but this type of event will not carry over any Event Currency.
    So you will only earn 30 Event Currency from 6 characters, the other 25 Event Currency from the other 5 characters will just go no where and will have been wasted.

    Act 4 allows you to send characters to the Kwik-E-Mart, this is in case if you do not have Lard Lad Donuts.
    It can also help to gain all currency that would have been lost.

    You have a choice where you want to send the 6 characters, but for sake of argument, we will say the Kwik-E-Mart.

    First, make sure no characters are in Lard Lad Donuts, if they are you will lose what they earn.
    If it is In Game Cash you may decide not to worry about it.

    If no characters are on event.
    Store Lard Lad Donuts.
    Send 6 characters on the event, they will go to the Kwik-E-Mart, make sure Bart is in this 6.
    Replace Lard Lad Donuts but some distance from the Kwik-E-Mart, so if you have a collection radius, it will not collect from both buildings at the same time.
    Send the rest, 5 characters, on the event and they will go to Lard Lad Donuts.

    When you collect, go to the Kwik-E-Mart first, or if Bart's face is in top left corner, tap it.
    I do this to make sure I go to the first group first.
    You complete Part 4 and get the Token.

    Go through the story popups, then part 5 starts, then go to Lard Lad Donuts and collect them.
    The 25 Wheel Cakes will count towards Part 5.

    This is all if you were 370/400 of course.

    Hope this helps.
