Men of Steel

Post by mikedabomb on Mon Mar 03, 2014 11:40 pm

Just had the "Men of Steel" mission appear.

Looks like I need a Giant plane and Laundry to travel to any of the destinations.  Since I have neither,  it'll cost me 400k coins and untold time even to begin.  The mission is only active for around 7 days so I guess it "ain't gonna happen".

Even when you will have one plane, it will be very hard and will cost you loads of fuel for returning the plane around.

A flight takes 9hours, so without extra fuel you can fly twice a day, so 14 times this week. You have to collect every collection thrice. Drops did go up (to about 2 per flight) as I experienced, but it will still be very hard/ impossible with only one plane.

Happily I have a lot of fuel in stock thanks to my neighbors,
so I'll try but am not getting my hopes up.
Tough one!

How often does this appear? Is it like the others...once a year?

Also...in general...if you start one of these missions but fall to complete, and the mission comes back available some time later, do you pick up where you left off, or do you have to start over?

Since the giant planes are new, this is a new mission and no one knows how often this one will appear.  I think all the ones in the past have appeared once a year or less.  Nothing has been posted on their fb page about the mission and I don't twit so I'm not sure if any information was sent out.

In general, you pick up where you left off.  I assume if you completed one of the collections 3 times, then it would still be complete when (and if) the mission returns and you would only need to complete the other 2 collections next time.   That's why some people completed the On the Wings of Love event as soon as it began (I sold one of my Merry-go-Rounds so next year it won't complete automatically for me).

It took me 48 flights to get my first collection from Oslo with 2 planes constantly flying.
This quest is beyond a joke.

It took me only 3 flights to complete my first collection from Oslo. So I was quite positive, but now my plane is in the repair base for 12hours, lost time!

Yeah, not going out on a limb for this one. Burned up most of my coins rebuilding after the Valentine Day Massacre, GI-style.

Still waiting for a Laundry to finish as well.

Getting the 300k needed for that plane in time to matter will be impossible.

I gave up this event as it appered, I would like to first finish pyramid, space needle and collosseum items. That will give me 150 more points in cap and thus it is more important than to burn all the extra fuel to the event with unclear result.

Sorry folks, I'm afraid I have finished this thanks largely to my pyramids (these take up ~half my city to boost the population total).   Also the drop rate from the giants seems to have increased after the mission (1-2 items ~66% of time) so today it dropped the remaining items.  

Anyway, it gets you a Gym - 2x2, generates 210 coins every 2 days and adds 20 to the population.    Sadly, because of the need for pyramids, no longer have any space to actually build it, so can't really say it's worth any effort...    Personally I prefer the Colosseum, Sphinx etc. and they are more useful.  

Good luck!

I will also only finish this event due to starting it already owning half of the collection items needed (due to pyramids/stonehenge/sphinx). I did buy two giants with the gold/silver tokens to pick up the remaining items. Those tokens came in useful for something!

I've just completed it! It took me a over 60 flights in total and a whole lot of fuel.
I hope I can restock the next few weeks before the next event appears.
Good luck to the rest of you still trying to complete it!
