What REALLY grinds your gears?

First, apologies for the absence, I have had some personal issues I have had to attend!

Welcome to our – ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears?’ post – come and share ‘What Really Grinds Your Gears’ with the FG: Tips team!

Lots of events and content updates have been bombarding us all lately, so there must be something that has ground your gears to dust at some point!

The Valentine’s event ended, then we FINALLY received the Fine Arts District, has there been anything in particular that has almost made you tap that uninstall button?!

We would really like to hear what was grinding your gears – is it the amount of plutonium needed to collect items to unlock Olivia? Is is because there are only 3 characters to collect plutonium? Is it the disappointment that we don’t get to time travel… And that the blimp gets to disappear for a few seconds? Or is it because the blimp disappears once it has collected all the items for Olivia? Whatever it is, we would love to hear what has been grinding your gears in the last week!

  1. What grinds my gears is that my fine arts district is STILL fogged over and I don’t even have the option to clear blocks. I completed all of the ‘Great Plutonium Heist’ and ‘Away we Go’ and am now stuck on ‘Dance Hall Days’ because I can’t clear any blocks. As a result, I collected 13 plutonium but don’t have the option to get the dance hall since I can’t complete task 1. Frustrating!

      1. Just tried it- all I get is Peter telling me to clear surrounding blocks first. Thing is- I’ve cleared all the land available!

  2. What grinds my gears is tiny Co being down right rude in refusing to answer why Carl never has any videos. There are rumours that it only works on ios, rumours that it’s because we’re in the UK, and despite hundreds of people asking on the Facebook page, they haven’t commented at all. I think most people would just like a response. Even if that response is, “We don’t know. We’re working on it”

      1. I think I found the connection, seems network based. I was on cellular (AT&T US) and he finally had the video. I noticed since then on WiFi (home internet is Time Warner) that the option was gone. I don’t have any weird firewall settings on my router but I’m guessing my provider or somewhere down the line doesn’t let communication for the video happen unless on a pretty open network (like a cellular one).

  3. Got the first 13 plutonium in about 16 tasks. Have only gotten one since (on 12 tries). Either my luck ran out or the formula changed in the last day or so. Could really use more characters to help collect too.

  4. Anyone else disappointed the blimp doesn’t actually take us anywhere, but just time jumps and reappears?

    I thought we’d be traveling to another time and have to do something there.

  5. Most boring event so far.
    I have 3 characters that I just have to stop in and reset every now and then. Everyone else is just wandering the streets. I’m not even bothering to put them on tasks anymore.
    YAWN….. ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz…….

  6. What’s up with the video store guy waving every time I go back into the game?? Then he tells me there’s no video but free clams and when I click OK, there’s no clams!!! What’s up with that????

  7. Because of the Pawtucket Pat district I’m getting kinda burnt out on being disappointed by characters not dropping anything. I don’t know if it’s good luck or what but I’ve already gotten more plutonium than beer handles. Despite constantly sending Trica and Hartman on their tasks, I’ve only managed to get five handles so far. And I still have so much further to go… ugh…

  8. Completely agree with Roy! I have all these characters, including clam-purchased ones who are now doing nothing! Surely there should be some benefit to having these characters, beyond the quick boost in the events! Only 3 plutonium characters, 2 of which I still need for my last brewery craft item!!

  9. I agree. How about the ability to store characters in inventory? I mean nothing was going on in the game after the last holiday event and then they start this mini thing and the tasks are all long ones so basically I only had to look at my game twice a day at the most. I stopped collecting rent and sending useless characters on tasks for an entire day to get them out of my way is now the norm. Game is very boring right now.

    1. I believe they already added the ability to store characters in your inventory. Click on a character who isn’t doing any tasks and you should see a small button below the avatar that you can press to store the character in your inventory.

  10. Only 3 people can drop plutonium, and you have to collect so much of it for 1 item! They need to add some more people to the mix.

  11. Why don’t all the time travel questlines run at the same time? Now that I’ve reached part4 of Dance Hall Days, there’s nothing to do but collect plutonium, when I could be working on the other questlines. Maybe I don’t want to go to the old west first, we should be able to work on them concurrently and “travel” to whenever we please.

  12. The fact that my game crashes every time I place Olivia’s house. I am never going to get her if I can’t even get her dang house placed.

    Actually, aside from that, the rest of my game has been glitchy as hell.

    1. The good news is that you need all the plutonium to unlock her since you have to get stuff via the blimp to unlock her. So hopefully by the time that bug works out, you’ll have a stash of plutonium ready to go:)

  13. Averaging one drop a day on plutonium. Boo. It’s hard to get excited about logging in when only three characters have a task going on. Maybe this is a good thing 🙂 I could stand to play a little less.

      1. I usually have better drops than most, at least when I’m looking through these comments, but very little luck so far. I’ll wait another day before I reach out to TinyCo.

  14. What always grinds my gears is the number of useless characters during events, or when you need to collect an item. You have three characters collecting a rare item and 47+ characters doing absolutely nothing. Seriously??

    1. #tellmeaboutit… 66 total characters in the game (not including Olivia) means I’ve got 63 completely useless folks. In fact, the only characters I even have out of storage are the dozen or so that aren’t at their maximum level.
