Star Trek Edition: What Grinds Your Gears?

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 Star Trek update has been live for a few weeks now, 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 having to wait the same build time as the original build time when moving a room? Was it the time change of the rooms resulting in us losing out on Transporter Energy and our comment mod?! Not having a great explanation in-game regarding the Borg? Whatever it is, we would love to hear what has been grinding your gears in the last week!

  1. Would like to see something included for Patrick Stewart, George Takei, or Benedict Cumberbatch. Far too many rare items to be collected with only one character to achieve them.

  2. Here’s what grinds my gears:
    In past events, tinycrap gave us impossible tasks, we let them know, them they changed things to make it easier.
    But now they just don’t care. They’ve given us 3 weeks of BS now but they simply leave it as it is and act like nothing’s wrong or worse still, make it harder (rec room build time increase).
    The old tiny co made many mistakes.

      1. It’s easy to say it’s just a game but how much time and money do you have invested in it? My time is worth a lot to me and some people have hundreds of dollars invested in imthis game.

      2. It is just a game no matter what amount of time and money you invest in it. As for myself I have been playing this game for almost the full time it has been released. I have spent countless hours playing. Also when I can I do buy clams for the events in order to get all the character. At this point in the game I have every character and I am only missing one skin (and that is because it wasn’t re-released in the “Best of 2014” boxes). The game is no different than any other hobbies people partake in. So enjoy the game. There is no need for all this negativity, especially on here. We are here to help when we can. We don’t control the game. We can make suggestions to Tiny Co. but they don’t have to listen to us. SO take a deep breath and relax and play on.

      3. I wish it was just a game, but it’s a business for Tinyco and they’re exploiting us, fully taking advantage. If it’s just a game can you really label it a hobby?
        I am fully freemium and would understand if premium players get advantages but now they are complaining too, which unfair and I’m empathising with them. Here’s an example: Vulcan quagmire costs 1300 clams to unlock in a limited time, and if you’re a premium player yourself, how can you not think this is too much?
        Trust me, I’m trying to enjoy the game but tinyco’s money grabbing antics are making it impossible, which is why I’m resorting to negativity.
        If we make suggestions to tinyco, they don’t have to listen but they should, because we are their customers and we deserve some respect.

        I understand you’re a comment moderator doing your job to keep peace in this community, but you can’t deny that tiny co are getting greedier and it’s making the game less enjoyable. It seems I want it to go back to the good old days more than them, and that’s not good for the makers.

        I’m sorry for the language earlier and I’ll try not to do it again but please understand that I’m just expressing myself.

  3. It’s the sheer length of time to get anything unlocked. Good tip was the coffin cannon, which helped with xp points, got to Starfleet level 6 only to find out I have to wait a further 5 hours to level up the warp engines to level 4!! The drop rate for items is abysmal, one character only to get the cocaine err sorry felecium (should that be Fleecing them, as that what TinyCo are doing to us), oh you could try phasers, but just as you have ship targeted the lag ensures you miss the shot, and if you do take out the petership, there is no bag of white powder. I have done it around 8 or nines times and got zip. One character to get laser pointers (in the words of the minions WHAAAAAAAA!!) As for the away trip to other planets, I put 6 characters on the transporter and still the likleyhood of getting what was required was unlikely – so what was the point???
    I love the Star Trek themed update IDEA, and all the actual graphics and animations are brilliant. Unfortunately, the execution and drop rates leave an awful lot to be desired.

    On another subject, I loved having the blimp in my harbour, until the last task meant it has been lost forever, I mean come on…unless it was those bloomin Borg, rotten Romulans or Clueless Kilingons that stole it, on the other hand the Ferengi F err sorry got to go!

  7. Dilithium, we’ve been told, is the currency for this event. However, there is very little available to use it on. That, and with the replicator, it’s always in conjunction with something else, i.e. green. I’m sitting with 25k+ dilithium, and nothing to spend it on.

  8. what really grind my gears is….This Event Sucks, it is terrible!!! this is the first time since last year that I’ve lost interest on the game. Ridiculous amounts of stuff for disproportionate low drop rates and hideous long quests.. 16- 24 hrs tasks for the only 3 characters doing something.. 6-10 hours wait for a room to build and drop energy, characters not helping at all; I have Worf, I have the Starfleet academy… and that is not helping at all. Shooting the ships does not always return the needed items and I’m sick of the planet missions, .. I’m sorry.. these techniques and requirements only took away the fun for me. Sure there has to be a challenge, but there is a huge difference between challenging and unrealistic (I truly believe they designed it to be annoying, not really amusing, the proof is how they changed the rooms building time) – As an example, Halloween event, I got everything and I played a little less than now; X-mas event, I got Jesus, playing constantly, There was something different; now it doesn’t matter if I play every hour, nothing happens, and for what I can read here, I’m not alone. So sad 😦

    1. Not to mention how we’re expected to get our starfleet level up twice every week but it’s barely possible to level up once due to the lack of xp-producing tasks and machines.

  9. Collecting needed items has been a trial this event. The amounts needed combined with the rarety is a big gear grinder for me. I’ve stopped spending energy for the moment. Just working through quests bit by bit and will decide at the end what I want to spend my energy stock on.

I have been fulfilling quests a lot and me needing 20 later pointers still when I have almost got everything else proves it. I get like 6 chances to shoot the stupid Peter ship and more often than not get a few measly dylithium crystals.

      1. Combo shots are the best. To get the laser pointer these are the ones that work the best.
        – Petercraft and the big round meteor
        – Petercraft and the medium chunky meteor
        The larger the combo of the Petercraft and meteors the better the chance of getting the laser pointer.

    If you send Chris to the second planet now, on his own, the chocolate goes straight to the top as being incredibly likely to get it. Take advantage if you want chocolate 🙂

  12. First, I’m not trying to show off, just give some pointers. If you’re a freemium player, which for the most part I am, if you play every 2-4 hours, you shouldn’t be too far behind. Once Troi is unlocked, you will probably blitz through. I’ve spent clams here and there since the games release spending a maximum of $30 total since then. I bought the $10 clam special for this event to buy Worf and I think he’s the reason I sped through the chocolates. Another reason is that I farmed about 32 Transporter Energy with the room swap before the time increase. I didn’t send anyone on any trips until then. Currently, my main backlog is in questlines. I only need 4 Felicium for Lois and 8 Laser Pointers for Locutus. Haven’t spent any clams other than those on Worf. Felicium and Laser pointers come mainly from the Phaser combos, but Quagmire and Klingon Chris have really helped. Just letting you all know that there is hope! Don’t give up because Troi is probably the most difficult out of this event without Worf. I managed 12 chocolates in 24 hours all back to back with the Geordi, Chris, Worf team. Just keep on trucking on Troi and getting the drops for Lois and Locutus and you should be near caught up by next week, even if your questlines aren’t done. Good luck everyone!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement but it’s not Lois and locutus that in worried about. Getting to starfleet level 6 seems almost impossible and that is what gets a warp level upgrade. Any tips for that?

      Like

      1. Here’s what I’ve done. It’ll probably be a bit more difficult if you’re collecting because the majority of my XP has come from questlines. Other than that, I’ve crafted one of each item in the replicator and bought one of each item which are the two plants and the one symbol statue. Any other XP came from away trips and clearing Borgs if that gave any. I’m not having trouble with XP at all. Got to level 6 yesterday and I’m almost halfway to 7 now. Just keep characters on tasks that give XP, craft items, and get the questlines done once possible. Like I said, I think I was able to get the questlines done since I didn’t really fall behind, but if you have no worries with falling one or 2 days back in the next phase, keep on collecting for Locutus and Lois, but get the questlines you currently have out of the way. If that doesn’t help, I’d suggest talking to TinyCo because it is possible there is a glitch with the XP not counting. Good luck!

      2. Thanks I’ve also got one of each replicator item and shop item but I think I’m behind because I spent most of this week trying to collect chocolates for Deanna troi. Sending 3 characters on away missions earns less xp than sending then on individual 8 hour tasks so I lost out on xp that way, and I had one less character as I was still unlocking troi.

  13. I agree with alot of theses comments…I’ve been playing this game since day 1….I have every character n every skin…I have spent money ( about 250 bucks) an have always been able to unlock things in events by managing my game correctly. ..but I have to say this event isn’t for freemium players at all. I’m halfway from Lois n borg paccard. ..n I just lost intrest in this event…the drops are horrable, the amounts of rare things are ridiculous., and the Xp points are so Frickin slow to level up 2 for upgrading the engine room….tiny Co it’s obvious your getting greedy on these events….it’s know it’s a game n that’s the point but before your next event let’s think it thru first n think of the people that have been loyal to this game since the beginning

  14. What grinds my gears is missing out on the 800 SFXP. The meter never moved for me, and it’s definitely not a visual thing because it still took days for me to level up…when I read about fols automatically bumping up a level, it’s just frustrating, and TinyCo is unresponsive on this issue. Ive also noted that none of the replicator builds are granting XP, and this may impact my ability to finish the event

    1. I agree. They should have included them in the event. But there is still 23 days to go so they may get used. With regards to having Locutus and Patrick Stewart. They are completely separate characters rather than having a Locutus skin for Patrick Stewart. So once you get Locutus unlocked you will have both him and Patrick Stewart running around your Quahog

      1. I get that they want to make em separate characters even though it’s not what a lot of us want, but where is Locutus/Picard in Facespace? He doesn’t have a placeholder page anywhere and isn’t included in “The Next Generation” group. Noticed this right after getting Riker because there wasn’t a silhouette for him on the “collect all these characters and get clams” pop-up. Even Guinan had a silhouette on a few TNG Facespace pages before she was released. They’ve been running this game for a year now and still cant get things right or even consistent with how things have been run in the past, SMH

      2. Patrick Stewart is with the characters from Comic Con. For now Loccutus will go with the “New Character” category. I fond with most event they will add a mother category or two later in the event for the premium characters and for characters that they are going to surprise us with. You notice that Captain Kirk also doesn’t have a place holder either. It will be a wait and see.

      3. Jamie-I think you mean Patrick Stewart is with the ComicCon characters. Picard/Locutus was the one I was wondering about. If he is his own character, theres no reason he shouldnt be with the other TNG members. Even if he stayed Locutus for the whole event, still a TNG character and should be with the other freemium TNGers

    2. Here’s what I think should have happened with locutus/Picard:
      If you got Patrick stewart in comic con, then you should get a locutus/Picard costume. Simple as that.
      However if you didn’t get Patrick Stewart in comic con, then you should get him as a character along with the locutus/Picard costume.

  19. Before last night one of my complaints was I hadn’t seen any Borg to clear but they finally showed up. That aside, I’ve found it maddeningly annoying how hard it is to get the Duct Tape, Space Groceries & Laser Pointers. I finally managed to get 3 DT & 1 SG of each. With any luck now that I have Worf & Troi fighting the Borg, they’ll start dropping more. The Laser Pointers are a different story, no matter how many PeterCraft I blast they don’t drop.
    There’s still over two more days until Sickbay can be accessed but I honestly don’t see how Lois & Locutus are going to get unlocked unless money is spent.

    1. Hitting combos works best for getting the laser pointer. The ones I can suggest are the following:
      – Blast the Petercraft and the large round meteor
      – Blast the Petercraft and the medium chunky meteor
      The bigger the combo the better the chances. Good luck.

  20. Of all the events, I dislike this one the most (which after xmas’s yeti missions), says a lot! The entire storyline is held up bc I can’t get Troi. I’ve ran countless missions, only got chocolates once. Then the whole transport energy thing is a total farce. Even with the drop “improvement,” I get maybe 2-3 a day. Which means it takes 2-3 days just to get enough for the mission. I haven’t bothered to use the transporter for anything else bc I can’t spare the energy. I’m due for a warp update soon, I won’t have the fleet level to get it bc I haven’t run the story line missions to earn the big count experience. It’s really frustrating. I play the game A LOT and I’m not getting anywhere. I’m not willing to spend a lot on it clams either. And at point, I won’t use any clams bc it’s a waste. It’s unlikely I’ll get the characters. This event is a disappointment, big time 😩

    1. Sorry to hear this. It has been so hit and miss for getting stuff from the transport. It does suck that a combination of characters that works for one person doesn’t work for another. The only this I can suggest is sending a message to Tiny Co about it. The more complaints they get the more likely they are to make improvements.

    2. I’ve never read a comment which matches my situation so perfectly. Also phaser energy is as rare and hard to fat as transporter energy, making this week almost as bad as the last one.

      Tiny co should at least lower the warp upgrade requirement to reach star fleet level 5, because 6 is just not possible for most of us.

      1. I also have to agree with your comments. I am still on Starfleet level 4! and I play every 2 to 4 hours. The pace of advancing in this event (Starfleet level ups) versus the next round of warp core upgrades is uneven and slow. I feel I am about 4 or 5 days behind, and only falling further back. Also running short on dilithium crystals. I just got all of the items for Deanna Troi (Chocolate took forever even using the room swap technique to get Transport Energy) only to not have enough crystals to unlock her yet. The further back I seem to fall the less interested I am becoming in the event.

      2. It’s good to know we’re not alone in this struggle but the original comment covered the reas on why our starfleet level is so far behind. It’s because a lot of us still don’t have troi so can’t make progress with quests, which give more xp than any building. You’re in a better position as you got troi, now watch your xp soar!

  22. For the first time this event, I actually thought the number of items, their rarity and the drop rates were pretty much spot on. And made the characters very obtainable. However I am now in the ridiculous situation of having completed everything for locutus except the pointers, and only having 6 of them! And having completed everything for lois except felicium, and only having 2 of those!!! And despite using every transporter energy I get, I still don’t have the warbird OR herbert.

  23. Not even gonna try again to get Herbert’s costume before I get Lois’, too many missions that only rendered the standard delithium xp – absolutely nothing extra – with everyone possible sent.

    The Laserpointers and the Feliciumbags will take forever with only one character getting them! The shooting thing is ridiculous, I hit the Petercraft every single time but Felicium/laserpointers only drop every 6 time – that means I need to hit that thing 180 times to get half of the stuff needed.

    Like

    1. The felicium and laser pointer are tricky. It is all about getting the right combo when you blast the Petercraft and the meteors. The combo that works best for the felicium is to hit the Petercraft and the big round meteor. For the laser pointer there are two possible combos, either the Petercraft and the big round meteor or the Petercraft and the medium chunky meteor. It is still hit and miss the way but the odds are better if you can get the combos.

      Like

      1. Come to think of it, I think all stuff generated hits were combos. It should be clear that you need combos and not just “shoot the Petercraft” to get stuff. Listing only one of two requirements is kinda mean and futile.

      3. It is hit or miss with the item drops as they follow pretty much the same drop rate as if you were getting them from a character. Jut keep trying and check my other comments to see the best combos to try and get to increase your odds of getting the items you need.

    There should be additional quests for those with additional characters

I have 3…and I was going through the market hub, only 3 items unlock this Thursday with the new district while all the rest is going to be rushed to get during the last week.

  29. Where do I begin? I think this has been the worst event so far, so I have a lot of complaints. The whole event is a shambles and hasn’t been thought out at all.

    First the tasks to get transporter energy and phaser energy are 6 hours instead of 2 like the yellow energy. This leads to some more problems.

    I still haven’t got Deanna trio because the chocolate bars just don’t come. I’ve tried the most likely combos several times and only got one set! I should have her by now. I don’t blame myself, I blame tinycrap.

    The fact that only Deanna troi became so important this week is also stupid considering how hard it is to get her. I can’t progress in this week’s main quest line until I get her, she’s the only person who can clear the Borg for freemium players, and I’m using almost every other character to collect her chocolates! I basically can do anything until I get her, but tiny rap insist on making it almost impossible for me.

    Even the new character and costume for this week have a difficult item each. I mean felicium and laser pointers as phaser shooting is a bit too hard too.

    Xp also seems to be a problem as we have to go up 2 levels. I’m only halfway through level 4 and I’ll be lucky to get to 5 by the time new content arrives. I’m sure others feel the same.

    Then there’s the same old issues that tinycrap still haven’t fixed like lagging, crashing and tinycrap not replying to in-game messages, and now it seems even emails!!!

  30. No chocolate bars and have sent crews on the mission 4 times after the bars were supposed to be more “obtainable.” It’s taking me forever to get those transporter energy. 😦

      1. Actually I got my only chocolate bar drop when peter went along for the first time. I think it’s PURE LUCK but some of us are only having bad luck.

    1. Are you referring to getting the passer energy or items like the felicium and laser pointers. If it is for the laser pointers and felicum then have a look at my comment in the “Week 3 Walkthrough Update”. I have a comment there that will help with getting these items.

  31. A few things:
    Difficulty in gaining phaser energy making it difficult to gain items for Starfleet Lois and Locutus, and also the lack of character tasks to gain laser pointers and felecium. Lack of tasks for premium characters, again, there should be tasks for these characters, at least some of them, to gain needed items. Had I known most of these premium characters would effectively become useless after I purchased them, I wouldn’t likely have purchased them. It should be a bonus to us who have shelled out the clams for them to have more tasks to get items. I am also disappointed in the lack of purchaseable items with the “currency” of the event – dilithium crystals. I am well north of 20,000 and have nothing to use them on, this was also the same issue in the Valentine’s event. Also, not too thrilled with the drops/build times on the rooms. Either increase drops as the times are long or reduce build times to allow for better chances for drops. All this being said, I’m loving the event.

  32. I feel like everything is so slow. There is no instant gratification of earning everything. Earning items and unlocking characters takes too much time and is uninteresting at this point.

      1. I’m not sure about that, even though the likeliness increases without peter. I tried Chris and Geordi (everyone I have except for peter, like you said) about 3 times and got nothing. Sent peter with them twice and got 1.

  33. Still on level 4 and I play more than anyone should. This game is becoming very freemium unfriendly and probably next to impossible to finish the event. Chris has a million tasks and most take a long ass time. Almost nothing drops fast enough. No way Picard or Lois will be unlocked before the next core update (not that I will be ready anyways) and I am now figuring I will be 5+ days behind. I was about 18 hours behind the last warp. All this and I even used my clams to buy Worf. Building and rebuilding rooms is annoying and should not have to be a strategy. If they cannot make a game that freemium players can finish with a fair amount of play they should lose their free status in the play store.

    1. Real talk!!!
      I’ve been trying for a week and a half I get Deanna and I’ve only got 4 chocolate bars even after all this time, let alone items for Lois and locutus.
      I also agree that it’s ironic how the description on the AppStore/play store says something like “it’s free! What more could you want” but force us to pay so much that it doesn’t feel free anymore.

    2. 100% agreement. I feel your pain, but fortunately held off on buying Worf. Glad I didn’t buy him now. I am in the same place as you in the event but with 260 more Clams in my pocket. Sorry, but I am playing this event totally freemium after seeing all the comments. TinyCo will not get any of my hard earned money this time. If that is their goal, they have failed in this event to generate income from me…Slowly losing interest in this game and playing TSTO much more instead. Still love the Family Guy show, but this game…getting less love from me as time goes on.
