Well unfortunately none of my planes can make that trek. So I have to buy cities on the way there, and I don't even think any of my planes will make it over the ocean.

Sooo... I've basically lost all my money, am in a perpetual loop to earn 100 coins per flight, and at this rate, I will have enough money to open those cities for a path to the US in just under 3 years of real playtime.

I sure hope my UDID isn't tied to my statistics :\
When starting off, filling a plane with jobs to the same destination to achieve the 25% bonus is really important.

You can also choose to close an airport, as you will receive roughly half the "opening costs" back in coins.

However, if you haven't made too much progress, don't hesitate to reset.

Well not on android! I tried opening Mex. City LA and Chi to use the theory that closer generates more and max upgraded all to no avail. 90% of my 2500 have come from over seas...the majority from Shang Hai, Xian and Tokyo. Just my thoughts!

Default Endgame: completing individual events

Has anybody completed all 44 individual events yet?

I have six more to go, so every 12 hours I eagerly anticipate the refresh on the event list, hoping to catch one of these. Bit of a letdown when I don't get it...

A couple of days ago I was quite pleased at myself for delivering 1000 Pumpkinfest jobs to Cincinnati (class 1 city) in 9 hours, and then it showed up in Tokyo (class 3) the next day!

I'm not sure what I'll do after that; it would feel like I have completed the game. What say you? What would you do (or what do you already do) after completing these events?

Hey Strangers!!
I love it when someone else catches the excitement that comes with working on he 44 events. It's more satisfying then working the global event for me (no offense TA1 crew ).

Just a bit of my PP history for any newbies...I progressed to level 51, had 30 plane slots, 5000+ bux and 20MM coin. I finished all 44 events and waited through a handful of updates looking for additional events to be added to no avail. In fact to add insult to injury, there's now the 12 hour glitch associated with the 44 events that makes every event last 12 hours even if its listed as a 24 hour duration event.

So I sent my iphone account one of every rare plane I had and reset my game. I'm now back to level 28 and I spend most of my time working the 44 events when they pop up at cities near my established route.

For any Nimblebit personal that might still be lurking on this message board please consider fixing the 24 hour event glitch and add more 1000 job events for us. In pocket towers new events show up for special events like holidays and such, can't we do that in PP for the 1000 job events and not just the global event?

Happy flying everyone.

I have the controls and body missing the engine. I'm prob going to just trade them and whatever I get for the event because I need sequoias and can't get the sequoia K parts to drop. I'm on day 6 of looking for them. Heck I would even be willing to pay the fulfill 142 bucks for them!

TRAIN-I tried working them but for some reason I don't get credit for almost any of the tasks so I stopped.

The pb being, if you don't "get" the game, throwing money at PP won't really help. And as we've seen, with a good strategy, you don't need in app purchase at all, unless to thank NB for a great game.

The cuteness and attention to details I expected from NB, but I'm impressed by the depth of PP.

Never played PF though.
Didn't make a lot of bux because, as you noted, the "difficulty curve" (plus the weird logic pointed out in the analysis [i.e. bigger planes don't necessarily make more $$ unless one is highly disciplined & has a strategy] doesn't work for many. My fingernails are frayed but still hanging on.

IMO you're right, it's not a matter of "throwing money" at the game -- you NEED a strategy. Simple concept but confusing to actual concoct one (barring the reading of this forum, that is!) Previously NB gamers, playing other games, didn't need a strategy, just patience. There's a huge difference.

Futher, cute in TT is wherever you look. Cute in PP is a random plane flying upside down. So, yes, PP has depth but TT has the cuteness factor in spades (among other things).

As for PF for you, I dunno. Great forum. Inordinately generous people. Mild to moderate strategy. Still, if you're into really challenging, heart-thumping competition games. doubt it's for you. And THIS in spite of the fact that I have enjoyed PF over the years (yes, years -I'm not even a serious player!).

Pay the amount of bux to fly it again and place it Denver or the near by airport you just bought. Try that and if that works for you. Also collect every bux job you see. Those things add up and have sweet payouts the more you collect.

Hope that helps!
This is exactly the type of player referenced in the article who, without guidance, might give up altogether.

Understand (& this is a real compliment), this forum is composed of truly unique people who have the dedication, persistence, logic, & wherewithal to experiment with various strategies in a scientific way which makes them über-players.

Enormous respect for the brainpower in this group.

Let me know what you want to do when the event ends. I am in need of a body but just have a control to trade. I can keep an eye out for Seq M parts for you as well.

Fantasy, what are you looking for precisely? Sequoia K?
