WARNING: Blimp Plutonium

Hey guys,

It’s come to my attention that if you get 13 plutoniums and click on the blimp to get items to unlock Olivia, that it won’t actually get anything for her unless you click on the specific item you want above her head.

Example: (and this is what I did)…if you click the blimp, you’ll get nothing. The blimp will go back in time and reappear and that’s that.

What you should do: When you reach 13 plutonium, click on Olivia and the item you want and click “GO” then you should get that item.

As we all know, plutonium is rare so getting them is a long-winded chore so don’t make the same mistake I did as I have to now collect 65 plutonium now instead of 52 😦 grim

Also, I’ve read comments that also say if you collect more than 13 plutonium before sending the blimp out then you’ll lose out that way too.

Don’t get caught out!!

  1. Just got back into tqfs after about a year and a half away. It says I need the acrapolis to unlock Olivia, which I need to complete Virgils first edition pt 3 to do. But I’m stuck on the future is now pt 3, have Olivia attend rehearsal. I time traveled in the blimp, hoping maybe I would get it. But now the blimp is gone. How am I supposed to unlock her, if I need her to complete a task to get what I need to unlock her?

    1. Here is what I got from the site I mostly use…Seems like you need to look in your inventory because if you did the time travel in Pt 3 of Virgils First Edition, you will have the Acropolis. Or go to Olivia and click on the picture over her head. Either way, you still have to finish another quest, Ye Olde Blimp Trippe sending the Blimp out again to get the Guillotine and then once again to finish and get Olivia. You DO NOT need to even worry about Future is Now til after you get Olivia. I know that the Blimp was messsed up when I tried in July, but it’s long been fixed now. Just check your inventory or above Olivia. It’s there, you might have to trigger it.

  2. Its now July 2016 and I came back to FG after a year off. I’m playing on Facebook. I get the Blimp and complete everything up til Dance Hall Days Pt 4, it says to Time travel to the Old West…but There is no Blimp in the water…there are no tasks that allow me to get Plutonium..and when I hit OK on the task, either from Olivia, or from the icon, nothing happens…Is it too late to do this task? Please help!

  4. I can’t get Olivia Blimp is gone… Never got the Saloon that was the last trip… So… Is there a way to get her?

    1. I contacted Tiny Co. with the same issue, if you sent the blimp out enough times to unlock her, check your inventory. The item should be waiting.

  5. Have 1 last task to clear Olivia. Sent the blimp out and it never came back. Can’t even assign tasks to collect plutonium anymore. Any advice?

    1. Same thing happened to me. I have two tasks left for Olivia and my blimp has disappeared. I’ve done all the Stewie/Vinnie tasks and my blimp would come back with nothing. Now Olivia is stuck and I can’t release her. 😦

      1. You’re not alone Sarah, there’s a few players who have the same problem, but don’t worry, it will come good in the end, I think that the Star Trek event has taken over a bit but when that ends, all should be back to normal 😊

    1. If you have sent the blimp out five times and have received the final item (the guillotine), then the blimp will disappear. Tiny Co. Said that there is a chance that it may return at a future time for another event.

  6. Olivia is easy to get. For those who are having problems obtaining items you MUST do vinny n stewies quests to get the building pieces. I got all 4 places in 4 tries. Soo… Do the quests

  7. I’ve completed all the quests available. There is nothing left for me to do except unlock Olivia. I’ve sent the blimp away 4 times now and it’s returned with nothing each time. I’ve even clicked on Olivia’s bubble first, like it was suggested, but still haven’t received any items. Very frustrated here… Any other suggestions?

  8. I did what you suggested (clicking on Olivia first), but nothing happened. I then clicked on the “check-marked” blimp and NOTHING. Now my blimp is gone, hasn’t returned and Olivia is stuck. Suggestions?
    Thanks!

  9. A warning should have been noted before clicking on the 13 full check. Who would want to just go blimping to nowhere. I was not up to the quest part in walk like an Egyptian, so I blew 13 plutoniums on a round trip to nowhere land. 😦

  10. I finally finished the quest to get the western saloon. Then got 13 (actually 14 plutonium) and sent the blimp away. It came back with the saloon. My blimp also had 1 plutonium when it arrived back. It’s very slow going. Sometimes I go a complete day without collecting any plutonium. And, I collect when I can.

  11. I got my first 13 plutonium pretty quick. Didn’t have all the land in D11 cleared so the quest line hadn’t opened. I pressed the blimp button anyway and away it went. And I got zilch. I cursed and swore. But as soon as the land cleared and I completed a task all of a sudden the saloon popped up. It then said we were going to Egypt next. I just got my second batch of plutonium and hit the blimp and got the snake. Then had to build the Egyptian bathhouse to continue. I checked Olivia after each and the items were checked off. So I cleared those out. My advice – don’t panic. Just complete the tasks as they come.

  13. Thinking I’m really struggling with this I’m so confused.
    I see people have already got items for Olivia I hadn’t even collected enough for one trip & collect regular as they finish their tasks so far just collected 7 so this going to take me a very long time.
    Also i dont seem to have had many quests 😦

  14. You have to wait for the quest line to catch up and you will get it automatically. Finish certain parts of the quests for the new district and it works okay! πŸ™‚ same happened to me, but then as the quest went on I got the item.

  15. Based on my modeling, I have 11 opportunities to collect plutonium. (setting a timer to remember to check when their action times are due and accounting for non-playing time to sleep)… I have been yielding 2-3 a day. (My modeling suggests it will take over 2 weeks to get all 4 buildings.) Since I am going to the blimp and taping on the plutonium so I can tap on the 3 guys to ensure that I check their progress, once I got to my first 13 I hit to GO button. It completed, I got XP, Coins and the Saloon. I then went to Olivia and clicked above her head where the Saloon was checked as completed.

  16. As long as you’ve unlocked all the land and the quest you are on says to visit wherever with the blimp then there should be no problems ,if you’ve sent the blimp before the quest then once you get to it you should get the prize as the task is already completed x

  17. I really wish I’d seen this. I just did the same thing. Been collecting plutonium since it was available and it took all the way till now. I’m definitely feel very frustrated now. Especially if it’s going to take me that long again to get 13 more. This three character plutonium getting thing and my bad luck with rate drops might just be the straw that breaks the camels back. Been playing since its release religiously and dropped several hundred dollars into the game but this is the one thing that just took me through the roof finally. Life is busy enough that I don’t get on more than 2-3 times a day. My motivation levels to play just dropped somewhere between 50-70%. Not solely for the plutonium of course. But that didn’t help much. Sorry TinyCo. I may have to part ways with you now. My time and health is too valuable to spend on hypertension inducing incidents like this. I hope you can make it up to myself and the other players that had this happen because there was no instruction/warning how to use the plutonium/blimp in a useful way. Using 13 plutonium for a reward of what $1,000 shouldn’t even be an option in the programming

    1. I don’t know what’s happened there, maybe if district 11 is timed then that’s why you’ve got it now, I’m not 100% on this but maybe Zooey or Holly might know

    2. You can’t start Pawtucket until you are done with all of the District 9 Quests (which includes Mayor Runs the Town).
      The Fine Arts district opened up once you completed Wild Wild Mayor West part 5.

      I’m doing the same as you. so Level up that Mayor asap so he can help get plutonium and unlock Pawtucket! πŸ™‚

  19. So, I have a question…Every time each one of you collected 13 plutonium and used the icon above Olivia did each of you then get the item wanted? I only ask because when I got the first 13, I selected the Saloon above her head and I got nada (nothing for non spanish goers :-)). At the same time had the task for Stewie to go time travel (1min task) Once he completed his one minute task of time travel I then got it.

    Working on next 13 will do icon above her head and report back. Good luck to all.

  20. is it really like this???…very first thing I got for Olivia was the Saloon and I’m pretty sure I didn’t click on the go for it above her head lol. Right now I need 1 more plutonium to get the Dancing Snake I believe from ancient Egypt so I’ll check doing it this way to really see if that’s what you have to do. Honestly when I got the Saloon I actually can’t remember whih way I did it, but yet I DO remember my game crashed RIGHT AFTER I clicked “Drop” for the blimp and when I got back in I still received the Saloon.

  21. Thanks for the heads up. I’m just a couple plutonium away from a blimp trip right now and it is nice to know of this now so I can avoid the issue rather than right after I use up my hard earned supplies.

  22. I clicked the blimp and panicked when nothing happened. But then I reached the point in The quest line where I was supposed to time travel and Stewie brought back the prize…so it seems it is tied into both the quest and the plutonium/blimp.
