Re:Hints and Tips Available For Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin'

[Post New]by 45_LAC on Aug 23, 15 12:51 PM
I truly love this game; however, there is one thing that really does not bode well. That is when you find an item needed to open a section in an HOP scene if you do not have enough resources to open that scene you lose the item.

I currently am unable to finish one of my quests because I cannot get into one of the scenes in Martha's house. I would like to find the gloves needed to open this area but the quest to collect these gloves is gone and I have forgotten where to find these gloves.

Any help with this concern would be greatly appreciated.

This is a well documented glitch that was introduced into the game with the final update.

The issue with some of the found items to open the mini-screens is the quests to find the items and the quest to use the item are separated and the found item is lost between. The gloves and Aunt Margaret's house is the most often mentioned one and I am afraid the only way around this one is to restart your game under the gear/cog in the upper right hand corner of the main screen.

You will retain your Antique Rating, friend list but all else will be lost. To keep coin, gold and collectibles also - open your game, DISCONNECT your computer from the internet - turn off the Wifi, remove the cable, turn off the modem - which ever applies, and go to the gear, find settings, and choose New Game.
If you don't do this exactly right you will lose the coins, gold and collectibles too.

For people that missed the warning before:

CRITICAL HINT- Once you actually have the item and the quest to use it DO IT
Don't close your game and think you can do it later - the found item is coming up missing.

Quests that are separated between getting the item and using the item by other quests (which means you have to leave the first one sitting till you get the second) and could lose your found item are

•Gloves in Aunt Margaret's house - first Old Friends, Fresh Memories. Leave it sit till you have Atlanta open. Do not go back into South Dakota till you get GA open. Then play the two quests in quick succession.

•Oil can in Latoya's Candy Shop e: Oil Can for Latoya's Cash Register

Jillian says fixed the register all you need is oil. Missouri is where it was found. There should be several quests between the one where you get the oil can and use it.... <counting> I have listed seven between getting the oil can and using it.

I have all the blueprints except Theodi's and the ones I need are 1a and 1b. What are they? I'm confused by the letters.

For screen shots of the AES Blueprints. Pull up a Google search and type in
PinkRollsRoyceGames or Oddlyenuh's Photobucket

All lists in the forum refer to the number of resources it takes to play the Mini-game. Since there are two 1 resource games to each shop they are labeled 1 a and 1 b.

If the blueprint has two pieces that drop from the same mini game they are labeled #1 and #2 and the screen prints only So as an example, you are using the list on the spreadsheet or found in
Master list of Blue prints http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/342445.page

For Teodi's:
Teodi has the blue prints and MGs are at Teodi's, (13 pieces) thread used. 1 piece each Mini-game and 18 has two pieces.

Top- 18 18 16 14
Middle- 12 1b 8 10 7
Bottom- 1a 3 4 5

When there are multiple pieces found in one MG, they can switch on which order they drop so the 1 and 2 on the screen shots can be reversed and it was for tracking purposes that the second number was added.

The numbers as the positions on a grid - think tic tac toe. Not all blueprints have nice neat top, middle, and bottom roll. Which is why the screen shots were made.

The letters refer to the first and second mini-games that require 1 thread to play. 1a is the Silver Weave button. 1b is the red square button, Quadra Hypno.

Heh, Try, nicely done.

But you game me an idea.... brb


Top- 18 18 16 14
Middle- 12 1b 8 10 7
Bottom- 1a 3 4 5

To get the pieces for Teodi's, make a list, check off as a piece falls.

1a Silverweave
1b Quadro Hypno
3 Leprechaun
4 Rough Rider
5 Buttoned Down
7 Blue Cuff
8 Wooden Button
10 Golden Sun
12 Violet Button
14 Pink Dot
16 Piece of Jade
18 Anchor Away
18 Anchor Away

Start with 7 Blue Cuff because you will need the Mythical Cameo for more thread.

IF one does not have the Fixing the Plane completed, the quests don't show up at all. You have to have the plane and fuel accumulated to fly to the countries which have to have Picky mode open (so professional level) to get the collectibles for this event.

But one must have Fixing the AES sign and all the Blue prints for the AES buildings, and all the AES built and pre- customized to Pirate Décor to complete the quests as of day three.

The above thread has an overview of everything past the missing paintings and also has other worthwhile threads on particular subjects when you want to read more about that certain something.

One has to have completed the Missing Painting to get the Fixing the Plane quest. You trigger the quest by clicking on the wharf (take down koi fish if you have already bought them) and using the Enter -clicking on the little brown door on it. Then go to the plane and click on the door.

Buy another type of street decoration and change it to them. Once anything purchased it stays until you buy somehing else and change it.

How to restart your game and retain:
•coin • gold and • collectibles

you will always keep your Antique Rating, friends list

You will lose all upgrades to buildings, food, keepsakes, items purchased like trucks and pets, achievements and resources i.e Lumber, envelopes, thread, fuel.

Our Veronika figured it out!

With your game open: DISCONNECT from the internet < this is the key

Tsue says to play the first two quests and THEN reconnect to the internet. I have not done this myself and information is from other players. There is always a chance it will not work.

Use the New Game under the Gear on main page and Settings.

Follow along as Tirama Sue, a very detailed and highly reliable source of information restarts her game.

Not much on details after all, but it will give you an idea what the quest series is about. Also will provide the place the first part of the quest was attained when the quest has two parts. When it is a find and use quest, you can go back to the first part of the quest and get the piece you need again. If the quests are separated, you are out of luck and stuck.
