  1. I bought Barney. His (normal, not space) last task of his personal quest “Moe Beer, Moe Problems” does not trigger, even I have every character free.

    Ever since I launched the rocket and completed the quest my rocket is in flames.
    I waited 12 hours and still same and if I send Homer on 6 sec task to launch rocket it always ends in flames.
    Am I missing something?
    Maybe the mini game hasn’t begun yet?


    1. there’s a 1 in 4 chance that it’ll fail to launch


    2. Tapatapatapa 01/24/2016 — 11:49

      I’ve repeatedly sent Homer on 6 second task as there’s no limit but isn’t the rocket launch minigame only every 12 hours? I haven’t seen it at all.
      Homer always crashes and burns on the 6 sec task.
      Is homer supposed to be sent for 2 hrs to ‘put out fires’ maybe?


      1. Yes you send him to put out fire


    3. Tapatapatapa 01/25/2016 — 02:15

      It’s fixed itself and the 12hr timer is there.
      I had Quimby on 24hr task and when it finished the “Space Trek” dialogue repeated – as I’d seen it already – but this time the rocket launch function worked and I got debris.
      Must of been a unique glitch.
      Now I have the proper rocket I’m not sure how often I’ll launch it as it’s obviously not there on the launching pad looking wicked for 12 hours.
