Is that a Joke?

100 donuts for the Rigel portel to spawn 8 Rigelians every 8 hours :evil:

make if more appealing at least EA and spawn 80 :?

And then I guess after the events over it will just gather dust in the corner of peoples Springfields :roll:

8 ? Thought it only spawned 6.

    After the event it will likely become a money generating item or at least will have a multiplier, so it isn't totally worthless. You're quite right though that the payout of aliens isn't significant compared to the spawn rate we already have. I can't recall seeing one of these any of my neighbors' towns yet.
    New neighbors always welcome!

    I bought it because of how it looks. It reminds me of Stargate so it's more of just a fun decoration to me.

    It definitely resembles a Stargate.

    The timer also says something about locking in Chevrons, so I'm fairly certain that's not an accident.

    I got it because I liked the look. Definitely not worth it for the aliens.

    Had I realized how much other premium stuff would be on offer later during this event, I probably would've passed. Still, I quite like it.

    You definitely don't need it for the aliens.

    I also got it because of how it looked (it's resemblance to the Star Gate). 6 Rigelians every 8 hours is nice, but your right about it not making much of a difference where they are concerned.

    welcome to the event. We're half way there :)

    This item shouldnt be looked at just for the aliens. Its a very cool, animated, limited time decoration. I remember questioning the value of the ghost zapper last yr, and now regret not having it in my SF

    my annoyance is King Homer and the Skyscraper for 250...taskless building that helps with vanity id rather spend that money on Barney and the bowlarama or a few smaller items and get more for my buck... :shock: :roll: :(

    Definitely, and it is light years better than the transporter. The Portal is nifty, nice look to it.

    I got one because I like the look of it plus the extra probes, etc. Mind you someone on here was saying they had SEVEN of them.
