    Hey! So I have a pretty large Con, my next expansion will cost about $2.5 million. I have three trash cans, two small, and one the next level up. I keep them in a clearing in the center of my Con, and adjust their placement each time I expand. With Dawn as a VIP Buff, plus a Flower Box Deco Item to increase capacity and a Block Table Deco Item to increase cleaning speed, Dave is able to handle both the smaller cans without the use of comics (I can speed him up for free after 30 seconds), and I hire a temp to take care of the larger trash can, which takes a minute before I can speed it up. The central location is great, because I can keep an eye on cleaning progress as I scroll around my game. Also, if a Mission requires solving issues, I can remove the Deco Items and there’s lots of foot traffic for folks to complain and make the trash cans/vermin an Issue I can solve 🙂
    In fact, the only time I get a Crowd Feed complaint to add more trash cans is when I build and remove 20 trash cans to complete the Build 20 Booths or Facilities Mission, and forget to remove one of the trash cans. The customer is not always right!

    Cross-references:
    Solving Issues Mission – make sure someone complains in the Crowd Feed, or it isn’t an issue
    Getting people to come to your Con Mission – if your Con is full (200) you have to wait for people to leave before anyone can come in. OR you can scare a bunch off by letting the vermin run wild and self-destruct, taking your time finding the sick kids pills, and letting his messes evaporate on their own 🙂
    Build Booths Mission – If you don’t need any booths, the small trash cans cost $150 each, and are ready in minutes. Spend $3,000, build 20 trash cans, then remove them, and you’re done.
    Side Note – my phone doesn’t allow me to post videos to Everyplay, so I save my Skip Mission option in case that Mission comes up.

    These are great tips. Thanks. Never seen the game played that way before. Well done.

    Thanks, PJ 🙂 As I said in another post, I’m a Mission Freak, so I tried to figure out the fastest way to complete each Mission.

    Never, ever EVER use comix to empty trash cans. It is not worth it! Comix are necessary for hiring VIPs and expanding the con, so they are too valuable to waste on garbage collection (or other menial tasks). The 250 to hire the WWII Factory Ladies is well worth it!

    I currently have way more money than I know what to do wth, but Comix are my limited resources for expanding. I had 1,500 when the new expansions became available but that ran out when I got to the 250 comix expansion. It’s interesting, Lynn, that you have the opposite problem: more comix than money!

    Hi Jun! I must have been unclear. I do have way more Con Cash than Comix, and buy as many Con Bags as I can! I had about $24 million in Con Cash, and about 3,000 in Comix when the update came out. I’m down to about $16 million, and less than a thousand Comix. Need to buy more Con Bags 🙂
