Trick to finding UFOs?

I could be wrongbut in my experience the only time the UFOs are visible is when you're actually visiting neighbors to squish grem-aliens. If it's not time, then they are not visible.

    I only see them in towns I still have three friend actions in. I don't know if it's coincidence or not.

    I agree with this. I have not seen a UFO in any towns that I have already squashed aliens. One time I visited all 100 neighbors and then went back to look for UFO's but none came up, I gave up looking after about 20 neighbors

    Thanks for the tips. In that case - How long should I wait in each town when I have aliens to squish? Will they eventually show up in every town if I wait long enough? I'm assuming I have to hold off on squishing the aliens until one shows up to make it work, right?

    While I have found UFOs to be more predominant in untapped towns, I have come across a few in towns that have already been visited (three neighbors total).

    That said, UFOs have been few and far between overall. I expect that it is due primarily to my short list of neighbors.

    In my experience, the UFO shows up within the first 5-7 seconds when in a neighbor's town. It would make sense the UFO wouldn't show up if you've already squished the regelians and 24 hours had not yet elapsed.

    I'm 95% sure they'll only spawn in towns with friend actions left.

    Yep. From the moment the aliens materialize I count down from five and hit the arrow if the UFO hasn't appeared.

    I do the exact same thing.

    Yesterday was the first time I came across a UFO in a neighbours town I had already visited.

    This has been my experience as well.

    Is it just out of spite that they seem to appear in most towns I visit when I DON'T have any missiles left :twisted:

    I have seen them in towns that I have friend actions left and in towns that I have visited recently. I also have a few friends that are not playing THOH (no aliens) and have seen them in about 40%-50% of those. Just my experience.

    That was going to be my answer to the question. Get rid of them and you will see UFOs in most towns.
