UPDATED: Arnie has been added!
Love is in the Air… The update has finally hit and we have so much in our games! Find out everything you will need to know about the Valentine’s Day event – WEEK 1!
When you first go in your game, you will notice the snow has all melted… And this pop-up:
Changes to PDA Couples
– Increased Spawn Count to 8 of each
– Increased Countdown Time to 3 minutes (from two minutes)
– Decreased Spawn timer from 4 hours to 3 hours
TinyCo are still looking for a way to make it clearer which are the Fighting or Enamored couples, so it will change soon!
TIP from AnothrAddict: Hint for LOVE couples. When the couple stops, he lifts his leg.
TIP from JP: If I may share a tip with you regards the PDA couple: what I did was first store in the inventory all unnecessary characters that don’t help with this event as well as all moving decos that may be distracting to study the couples’ movements. Then I proceeded to remove all the roads in my city except for a little straight strip of road in front of Peter’s house since that’s where my game starts at whenever I load the game. The PDA couples will then spawn on this strip of road in front of Peter’s house. Without any distractions from other character and moving decos roaming about, I wait until the man of the couple raises his leg to tap them for a heart or wait until the woman of the couple smacks the man to tap them for a broken heart.
Hope I was clear enough as this way is working out fine to get heart/broken hearts 😛
Changes to PDA couples!
Just to be clear about the new animation you’ll be seeing:
You’ll now see a little animation above their head of which heart they’ll drop.
Fighting couples = a cloud of broken purple hearts will be animating above their heads
Enamored couples = a cloud of red full hearts will be animation above their heads
Hope this helps!
The event will end on 26th February 2015!
The event currency is Homemade Valentine’s (HV).
There are lots of Buildings and Decorations you can buy with HV… And the buildings earn you MORE HV (keep reading to find out how much each building earns)! Lots of characters can help out too, more details about those can be found below… (Find out which characters earn HV here)
We have a new feature that is unlike anything we have seen in our games before… The Affection Meter (AM)!
The AM works like this – you collect full hearts for a LOVE prize or you collect broken hearts for a HATE prize. The LOVE red hearts make the AM move up, the HATE blue broken hearts make the AM move down!
You can only win one prize per character… So you have to choose ONE of the prizes from the selection and work to earn the corresponding hearts to make the AM go up or down, depending on the prize you want to win! You CANNOT have both prizes!
You collect LOVE/HATE hearts from PDA Couples! They spawn every 3 hours, but be quick because when they appear… They only swarm your Quahog for 3 minutes before they have scrambled away again! You need to shoo them quickly, but carefully! Make sure you shoo the correct couples, otherwise your AM will move in the wrong direction!
You need to shoo ANGRY COUPLES to fill the HATE section, but if you want the LOVE PRIZE… avoid the Angry Couples, and make sure you only shoo the Enamored Couples, so your AM only goes up! You need to watch them until they STOP to be able to tell what type of couple they are…
After finishing and collecting either the LOVE or HATE prize for one character, the AM will reset and you start again for the next character!
You can check your progress or which character you are collecting LOVE/HATE hearts for by going to the Valentine’s event area, the tapping the cupid in his chair, you will be able to see how many hearts are needed to win the prize (in this example, you need 15 LOVE or 15 HATE, in the example below for Peter’s prizes… You need 50 LOVE or 50 HATE):
This screen shows you what prizes you can win for Quagmire and Peter.
– LOVE PRIZE: Clammy Secrets (drops items needed to unlock Ida Davis)
– LOVE PRIZE: Wicked Cocoa Chocolatier
As you can see, there are 4 more characters that will fill up the remaining locked spaces, meaning there are another 8 prizes to be revealed!
These are the FEATURED ITEMS (usually premium items that drop items and a costume):
The new skin for the Griffin House helps by dropping items for Handsome Peter, it will ALWAYS drop one of the items required, and costs 100 Clams!
– 500 Homemade Valentines
Buildings and decoration prizes will not repeat, but currency prizes can repeat.
The next episode of the Valentine’s event will happen next Thursday, on the 12th February! You need to work on completing “The Beautiful People Pt. 10” questline to see week 2 content:
The café that we teased in our newsletter is in this screen… It is the place where you can send characters on a date but not until week 2! It is still wrapped up in a bow in the event area of your Quahog, waiting for its grand opening!
There is also a sneak peak of what the story next week could be about (Glenda Vajmire…)!
As we know already, the event currency is HOMEMADE VALENTINE’S (HV)!
These can be earned by sending Peter, Quagmire and Joe on their workout tasks, as well as lots of other characters/tasks which you can be found here, so they can shape up!
Once you earn HV’s, you can use them to buy lots of Valentine themed items from the event tab in your Shop:
Tunnel of Self-Love = 800 HV (earns: 12 HV and XP30 every 8 hours, build: 8 hours) ANIMATED
Hero Perp’s Kissing Booth = 200HV
Also found in the event tab of our Shop’s is a small selection of premium items:
Pedigree Kitty’s Delivery Service = 600 Clams (earns: 1000 HV and XP40 every 12 hours)
