Level 48 – Kwik-Tap Guide

As the great, well not so great, Blue-haired Lawyer says, “Jezz, I take a nap and look what happens!”, once again our beloved games have updated while I slept. The downside to working graveyard shift I guess, but thanks to Emma, who might I add, has been absolutely terrific with helping to keep Topix afloat during this time. A HUGE thanks to her and her dedication, I really don’t know what I’d do without her.

Level 48 has arrived and right smack in the heart of the Christmas/Winter event so I’m sure many of you are in “panic mode” right about now. I had considered doing my usual Overview post but Emma has covered the update brilliantly enough just with her announcement post. In a nutshell, Level 48 isn’t much more than that. You can check that out here to find out what came. So I’m here to bring you the Kwik-Tap Guide to help you at least be aware of the bare necessities to navigate through the update if you choose.

The most important thing I can say about Level 48, and this is directed at those of you who are feverishly trying to collect enough presents to win as many prize as you can before Phase 2 of the Christmas event starts, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PLAY LEVEL 48 if you do not wish to at this time. As I’ve said a thousand times before, Level updates are permanent additions to the game and have NO time requirements. You can get the trigger from Lisa, tap through the initial dialog and then leave the task open in the taskbook while you continue to play through the Jingle Bell Wreck quest line.

Back to the matter at hand, after 48 levels, finally Lisa Simpson’s “fair-weather best friend” has arrived. Janey Powell, the friend Lisa loves to hate and hates to love is the freemium option for Level 48 and comes with the level’s main quest, “Smells Like Mean Spirit.”

As Em reported in the earlier post, Lisa is what kicks off this quest and begins the quest to obtain and then play Janey. In order to even receive this quest you must meet a few requirements:

  • You must have reached Level 47 and have completed The Cost of Living Pt. 1 of Freddy Quimby’s quest.

OR

  • If your XP meter has reached Level 48 you must have at least completed The Cost of Living Pt. 7 of Freddy Quimby’s quest.

And with that we conclude the entire quest line for Level 48. Counting each task assignment separately, you’re looking at 168 hours but in actuality it is less because all of the double tasked quest parts are sent at the same time so where I’m counting 12 hours, it is really 2 characters with a 6 hour task. I’m giving the max time because I know that time is precious to those of you fighting through the Christmas event. Like I said, and I can’t stress enough, level updates do NOT have to be completed right away. They are permanent additions to the game and do not have a date that they must be completed by so if you need to focus on present-generating tasks, by all means, continue to do so .

Situations like this is why we at Topix are even here in the first place. We were built on the aspect of helping you, the Sky Finger, play the game smarter and with more knowledge than most so that you can navigate through each and every update. We may not be the absolute first lately with certain posts and we do not have a quirky language, method of posting or start each post with quirky sayings but we strive to do our best at giving you the most relevant and up to date info for any change to the game.

We’re just players like all of you and do this in our spare time because we love to help people, plain and simple. Even at trying times we do what we can to help anyone. Our comment line is always open and any question or comment will be answered no matter what, please keep that in mind.

Hope this helps, thanks for reading!

    1. Yes you can nuke Krustyland seperate.
      I have nuked my B town and it was a chore to put it back! eventhough I dont have a design there.
      If you have recived a building/item warning, you know you have over 4,500 items to put back.
      Think carefully and have a plan made before you do it. The new inventory system should be helpful.
      Very rare but it happens that limited time items gets lost or locked in inventory when you nuke the town. If this happens, contact EA.
      Whatever you decide, good luck! I sure could use a redesing too after this event 🙂

  9. Hi guys, my question isn’t really related to this specific article, however I was wondering if anyone knows what the next set of unlocks are? Was prettyet down by this many decorations there were in the first set, only really liked the church facade and to be honest not that bothered about the Christmas characters apart from zutroy. I’m still so sure that one of the prizes in the next set is a dismantled bender, but I know that’s unlikely haha! Keep up the good work guys and have a good holiday! 😊

But have you seen this many glitches before? Seems like every day I get one or two only a couple of times it really effects everyone all at once like the other day.

        Like

        1. It comes and goes. Some are general, some effect a lot of players and others are rare.
          During events the calculation and anything connected to special currency, in this event presents, usually bugs out for many. For the majority it works fine but the reports on missing presents, elves, counters not moving and agents that cant be found are numerous. The glitch where you have to re-synch or re-start the game to access the cave is also event related. Game autocloses when you visit friends, skip that town for the day and move on, tomorrow it will probably work fine. Typical event, not tested enough.
          This time the event has brought other issues that effect the regual levels as well. Tasks registered as Done but wont go away from the book. This used to be rare now it seems common.
          And the standard connectivity problems. This time last year my game crashed 70-120 times a day. I couldnt play more than five minutes. It worked itself out eventually but it wasnt fun.
          Very few days are totally glitch free. It still takes 120 seconds to move/place/delete roads, pavement or tiles in my main game.

          1. Oh Wow,! Yeah that would drive me crazy that many glitches not getting to play the game that more than 5 minutes! Crazy. Ya,I’ve had a couple of those issues but I’m glad day for the most part figure them selves out cuz like you said that would drive me crazy what you went through last year. But yes it seems like when you should go see your neighbors is when I get most of my troubles. One other thing a question for you it seems like and maybe it’s due to the glitches but it seems that when people send Feds to my town it stops what’s going on in my toy shop / elves caves. Is that something you’ve heard before?

            1. Hmm. It stops momentarily or for a longer duration? I could understand a moments hicup when agents are dropped but not more. I would contact EA if it stand still for a longer period of time.

But thanks for the chat it’s nice to talk with you without any crisis.. well except the glitch I got now but like I said positive attitude and back to reality for a few. And I’m sure it’ll be fine.
