Tapping spaceships question

There should be one in Other Springfield so you can complete the quest.

    In some towns, you have to wait a little for the ship to come through.

    Has anyone else had a glitch where the game occasionally keeps generating prizes after you shoot a UFO?

    No, but I wish I did :P

    That has happened to me twice. Makes me wonder if they shut off the ships to fix it or something because I haven't seen any new ships in almost a day now. Also, it took a round of ammo for each extra prize generated.

    Yeah it takes ammo every time it does it. It doesn't do it every time - unfortunately!

    I don't think the UFOs have been turned off, I've got a couple quite recently. If it is a glitch it should be fixed quite soon!

    Yes, I think this happens if you have not performed those 3 friendactions first.

    Cause I saw the spaceship. Blew it to bits, and after that tried to tap on the mini-aliens. And instead I got rewards for blowing non-existing spaceships. I don't complain. I got atleast 5 gold trick or treat bags from 1 town alone :D

    it's an half glitch... in fact you can do it till you have ammo...
    so, at the end, you only have to find 1 UFO in one SF, instead of looking for multiple UFO...
    that's all, when you run out of ammo it will stop ;-)

    I ran out of ammo that way. It was worth it because one of the prizes was 30 Donuts WOO-HOO.

    Was wondering if anyone could answer a question. I have visited most of my friends today and have yet to see 1 spaceship. I cant even clear that task.
    Are they just really uncommon or do people have to be at a certain level, or what?
    Thanks

    Same problem, no UFOs for me since initial quest UFO in Other Springfield.

    I don't now if this is related but:
    - I didn't buy Ray Gun / Kodos, so Kodos is still flying over my town
    - I didn't unlock all FP prizes (Mr Teeny still locked)

    Regards

    no, it is not related to these 2 points.
    I was in the same situation, and I have seen (and hit!) some UFO.
    now I have bought the raygun just to get 3 extra ammo per day, because from the UFO you will get really nice prizes, up to 30 donuts! (and of course, Kodos), and I have unlocked Mr Teeny only yesterday.

    OK thanks, could be related then to the fact that I don't have available actions at the moment and have to wait until counters in friend towns resets?

    That happened to me as well. At first I was upset about it until I realized I had in fact been awarded for my "wasted" ammo. :D

    Happened to me too. At first I thought it was just stuck on the same splash screen, but then I checked my inventory...

    However, this bug can be somewhat annoying too. If I'm out of ammo and there's an UFO in someone's Springfield, I can't squish the little aliens at all, it just keeps nagging I'm out of ammo no matter where I tap. I have to leave the town and come back again to be able to do anything.

    Sometimes when you visit a friend's town, you can hear something that sounds like a UFO. Does that mean there is actually a UFO flying to be shot down, or are they just random sounds?

    Random sound, just like the similar sound in your own town

    I fortunately didn't have that problem. I moved away from the area where the ship was and was able to squish my last two aliens. I guess the glitch works differently for different people.

    Can someone please tell me how I shoot an UFO out of the air? I have ammo and from time to time an UFO flies over my ton but I can't seem to shoot it...

    The UFO over your town is flown by Kodos so can only be shot down by the Space Laser. (Right?)

    You need to go to other peoples towns and shoot the spaceships flying over their towns.

    I had something like this happen to me, I tried tapping the UFO about 6 or 7 times until it finally blew up, then when I went to tap a alien, it fired my 2nd shot and I think I got a reward for it.....

    Is there a special method of tapping the UFO's to blow them up??
