  1. I bought Sailor Kumiko on first day of the event but Dispirited Away Pt. 1 never triggered. How could I do?
    (I already had Kumiko and I already did her normal quests)

    This two tasks too does not trigger (I can find them as normal works):
    Exchange Welfare Checks for SkyCredits (Mrs. Muntz, 1h, Reward Center)
    Stock Town Maps (Marge, 2h, Tourist Information Center)


    1. you tried storing and placing her back?


      1. Yes. Still no Sailor Kumiko quest.


        1. try contacting ea with the istructions in our link under the banner


  2. Anyone have an idea when Lard Lad (in the wheelchair) The Parson and The Wiccans are going to be coded so that they can follow everyone to do a collective town job? It’s been a long while since i have been able to send EVERYONE to do a thing. I love doing that.

    After the update, my Bonus Percent dropped by 2.25%. I don’t think I stored anything – do you know if a bonus percent was reduced as part of the update? Takeout Box or Dragon Bundle maybe?


      1. brianqlehmann 02/01/2017 — 17:14

        I guess I must have stored something accidentally? Nothing to be done except look through the hundreds of items in storage. Grr…

    What’s the little ticket with a plane on the right of the 3 in your your star ratings box.I can see what to do with the pins and the sky miles and how to get them but can’t figure out the last one.tia x


    1. you need a ticket to fly in the SF airport. one spawns every 2 minutes.


      1. How many can you have at once? Do we need to stagger our people going on flights so we don’t spend donuts on tickets?


  5. Holy moly how long did that take to type out? Appreciate all you do but I’m sure we’re all fine with skipping such details if it saves you a ton of work ☺️
