Upon collecting 4000 Goo you will have enough to win the 6th Personal Prize, the Ultrahouse 2. As with most of the prizes unlocking, it will place it in your Inventory. Once you place it in your Springfield another mini-quest will activate, only with this prize, there are 2 possible quests. One is for anyone and the other comes with a premium offering for Kodos. Update: I was just made aware that those of you who do not have the Ray Gun prior have different circumstances and have added an extra walkthrough at the bottom of the post. Here’s the breakdown on this item.
Requirement: 4000 Goo and Reach Level 5
Placement: Springfield only, cannot be placed on the boardwalk.
Build Time: Instant upon retrieving from Inventory
Income: $135, 15 XP every 8 hours
Size: 8 X 8
Building Action Message: “Ignoring the First Rule of Robotics”
Although in the game it is called Ultrahouse 2, its episode reference is the Ultrahouse 3000. In fact, the one in the game is a direct sequel to the Ultrahouse 3000 as you will see in the walkthrough below. However the Ultrahouse 3000 appeared in the Treehouse of Horrors XII which was Season 13, Episode 1 of 2001, the 12th installment of the THOH series. In this episode Marge was convinced by a salesbot that she would never have to do housework again if she purchased a Ultrahouse upgrade to the Simpson home. The Ultrahouse was able to be either built from scratch or added as an upgrade to an existing home and was the future of housing. It had the ability to do chores, acted as a butler/valet by opening doors, preparing baths and giving massages, could cook meals and act as family doctor as well as be a personal A.I. companion when non one else was home.
This was all said and good for the Simpsons until the house, which had the voice of Pierce Brosnan, became infatuated with Marge. In an attempt to win Marge and get rid of Homer the house tried to kill him by dumping him in the dining room table’s garbage disposal. Long story short, they pulled its main circuit and it ended up beating itself to death with a lamp after the circuit ended up in Selma’s cleavage.
Ultrahouse 2 Walkthrough
Immediately upon placing the Ultrahouse 2 you will receive an automatic prompt from Frink. Don’t fret if you do not have Professor Frink, he is not required as a “physical” character for this.
Frink: “Welcome to the latest in modern dwellings from Frinklin Homes, the Ultrahouse 2.”
“Controlled by an artificial intelligence designed to guarantee your every comfort, with the mood lighting and the climate control and the witty reparTAY!”
Homer: “Forget it. Last time we bought an Ultrahouse, it fell in love with my wife and tried to murder me. And it kept recording over my shows.”
Frink: “This Ultrahouse has been completely reprogrammed. I can assure you, it has zero interest in women.”
Ultrahouse: “Hello, Homer. My you’re an adorable chubby. How’d you like to have a drink with me?”
Marge: “The Ultrahouse 2 is gay?!”
Homer: “Now Marge, be tolerant. If an alternatively-oriented robotic dwelling wants to show me a good time, I say let it-him.”
At this point you will see Kodos in a spacecraft start to fly around your town.
And back to the conversation at hand:
Cletus: “I reckon it’s the hillbilly’s job to point out the alien craft menacing our skies?”
Frink: “I have positively identified this flying object as an unidentifiable flying object.”
You will now be prompted to Make Homer Share a Romantic Evening with the Ultrahouse 2 for 24 hours ($600, 150 XP)
Upon completion of the task:
Bart: “So how’d your date with the Ultrahouse go, Dad?”
Homer: “Nice, but then he proposed a criss-cross where he murders Marge for me and I kill a bisexual garage in Shelbyville for him.”
Walkthrough For Those That Do Not Have The Ray Gun Prior
And with that you will have completed the Ultrahouse 2 mini-quest. Very short quest but very funny especially if you have seen the episode pertaining to the Ultrahouse 3000. The original house wanted Marge and the new one wants Homer. Classic Simpsons!!
After this quest if you have the Ray Gun or are willing and able to buy it you will then begin the Kodos quest. You will not unlock the Kodos quest without having the Ultrahouse 2. I will cover the Kodos quest in my next post. Hope this helps!!
