What Changed With the SciFi Takedown Update? (September 20th)

The SciFi event has come to an end as the Takedown update was just released, a long time after the last update on September 1st. As most of you know by now, every update not only brings new content but also changes to many other aspects of the game. From prices to appearance, task lengths to requirements, any part of the game is subject to change and many changes affect every player. Follow us right after the jump for the list of all of the changes.

The Daily Challenge’s task “Make Cletus Catach A ‘Possum” was corrected to “Make Cletus Catch A ‘Possum”.


Quest Scratch the Itch now requires Put Up a Parking Lot not to be active or Pave Paradise to be active and Scratchers and New Scracther to not be active.

A new character group was added, Krustyland Goers: Sherri and Terri, Bart, Homer, Lisa, Marge, Skinner, Cletus, Krusty, Comic Book Guy, Wiggum, Milhouse, Hans Moleman, Squeaky Voice Teen, Martin, Kearney, Nelson, Mrs. Krabappel, Sideshow Mel, Lenny, Carl, Lou, Eddie, Gina Vendetti and Jessica Lovejoy.

  1. What exactly are the prizes for the SciFighter, and what are the caps?


    1. Read the post, it is all there


    2. The prizes are in the post, but the caps are the normal caps set for Smart Devices and for the Springfield Dump. Just look at those buildings and you’ll see your cap (“limit”).


  2. thank you LPN, you always have the best information. cheers. 🙂


  3. Is EA tsto forum off line??


  4. Thanks for the info, as always! Noticed, though, since I haven’t updated yet, that the Flying Car is already placeable on the ocean. I moved it now just to be sure. Maybe a slightly different change occurred?


    1. my bad it CAN’T be placed over ocean anymore

      1. Well, damn. Alright.


  5. What’s next event Halloween I hope it be good one


    1. Nobody knows. My guess is a tie in for the Season 28 premiere which could hit tonight or this week. But that is a guess. Another guess is some sort of Gil Deal/Donut discount update which is most likely to come, IF it is to come, the week beginning 26th September. Then followed by Halloween.

    Do the Robot or Drone pet provide any multiplier or they are just NPCs?


    1. they’re characters. characters don’t provide multipliers


      1. OrdinarilyBob 09/20/2016 — 18:27

        Please, can you tell me, are the drone and robot PCs (do they have tasks that earn money/XP) or NPCs (just wandering decorations)?


          1. OrdinarilyBob 09/20/2016 — 21:39

            Thanks. I appreciate the info. I’ll pass, then. Heh.


  7. No extra stuff from SciFighter? At least I have a reason to play Rocket lancher and insinity caulduron. This one is going to inventory.


    1. it gives out smart devices or scraps as said in previous updates 😉


      1. I don’t need smart devices and junk. But it turns out I can’t throw it into inventory, because Stephen Hawkings have jobs there 😦
