Adventure Quest for The Louvre

Discussion in 'Airport City Collections' started by Davescharf, 4 July 2018.

  1. I finally saved up enough fuel to give the Ancient World excavation flight destinations a try. For those newer to the game or not familiar with all the excavation flights, these ones require Jumbos. Since I have the collections for MesoAmerica, Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt, and Stonehenge complete, this was the last one I needed for the "Sands of Time" collection which gives you the Louvre museum every 6 times you complete it.

    Here's a summary of the drop rates using just a Golden Dice and one map to each destination. For passengers I also used 2 alarm clocks and 2 family tickets over the 2 nights I did this.
    Troy: 18 items over 67 flights
    Thebes: 18 items over 78 flights
    Delphi: 18 items over 60 flights
    Athens: 26 items over 100 flights (flew more here because I only have 2 Athens maps)
    Sparta: 15 items over 50 flights

    The 'net' is two Ancient Greek Temples and two Louvre Museums. Had I had enough passengers left over I'd have gotten 3 more drops from Sparta for a third of each. I also received 15 Sky Captain bonuses, 15 Golden chests (each with 3 gold tokens), and 15 Large Bronze Chests (with 1 gold token each. That's a total of 60 gold coins.

    Since Jumbos are needed this took 131,000 passengers and 51,750 units of fuel (probably closer to 52,000 due to weather, but there weren't a lot of weather delays).

  2. Well done. My next is Stonehenge. Its the time which is my issue. 6 hours in one block is lot. Wish GD were 3 hours not 6! Your drop rates are not bad.

  3. Thank you for sharing your exp ! It is impressive !
     
  4. 20% or a little higher seem to be what I’ve seen for Stonehenge, Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. I don’t usually have 6 hours either but that doesn’t bother me too me. I try to get 3 solid hours in and set a goal for what I want to achieve.

    I have enough of all the maps except Athens so I might try getting the remaining 4 temples and Louvres without the GD. I know the rates won’t be as good but I also won’t need them in a hurry
     
  5. Thanks - once you get to the Powerful Deltas you need a lot of passenger buildings. I can fly 40,000 passengers with my current buildings if I have a Family Ticket active before needing an alarm clock. It’s these types of things that is why many longer term players have few coin producing buildings and use their land for passenger buildings

  6. One Hundred and Thirty One THOUSAND passengers??? In SIX hours? Let me know when you update, I want to see what your city looks like! I have the space for more pax buildings but I haven't got anything bigger than the tower block as they get kind of expensive @ 80k+ each. Waiting for more events for more buildings and kicking myself for not building/warehousing more during Cinemania last year.

    Huge congrats, I'm about to start saving fuel for a run at my next collection, I reckon I'll need about 60k to do the Ancient Rome one.

  7. It was 6 hours but I did it 3 hours a night on 2 consecutive night. I probably won’t update until I know the gifting bug is fixed but I’ll let you know.

    My city isn’t as vast as others (Bob69Bob, Wasted Eagle, AJ, Mo Elbo, and Derek all come to mind) but I have a lot of the different passenger buildings you can buy. I chuckle at the 80k cost comment because I have two of the 690k buildings that just came online.

    There are a few things you can do that really help.
    1. Build a magic square/magic garden. Mine sits at a +198% bonus right now for anything I put in it to collect
    2. Utilize videos: with a family ticket bonus, the magic square, and an emerald house I can get almost 400 passengers. Use a video to accelerate that building and you have 4000 passengers just from the one building
    3. Start with your fastest refresh buildings when you fly. The total pax numbers from those cheap buildings really add up over 3-6 hours
    4. Get the buildings that come with the collections. I flew a lot to Nepal to get the 18 collections for 6 Alpine Houses. There are other passenger buildings with some of the Condor destinations I’ll eventually get but I’ve gotten a couple of them just from the adventure building drops
    5. Bite the bullet on the extra expensive buildings. The only time I use many of my buildings are for maps but I’ve also bought them before the $1m plus terminal and town hall upgrades.

    I’m sure I’ll think of other things. It’s taken me awhile to acquire all the coins but that’s where the rocket launches really help

    Some impressive stuff. I generally prefer to use the full 6 hours, but I currently aim only for one or two maps at a time. Just finished the colosseum and now will be saving fuel for the stonehenge collection. In regards to pax, I know most people say every pax building counts, but if space is limited (for those without CBM), I recommend the following, which will help a great deal (in addition to what @Davescharf has already stated):
    1) Aim for buildings with a quick cycle time and that is 2×2. Turf Houses are an amazing addition when combined with the bonus square (6 to 11 pax per building every 5 minutes). The quick cycle time is beneficial because it gives your long cycle buildings time to recharge
    2) Get some buildings that pay out a whole lot at one time, such as Apartment Homes (300 every 2 days). Combine with the bonus square, and you can get some hefty numbers.

    I've come to learn that pax is only a major problem if you rush to get a map done. If you dont have enough pax, then you can still get a map done...it will just take longer. The bigger issue is fuel....especially if you have a bad RNG that day in regards to drops. I've eaten into my fuel reserves far more than I anticipated, because the drops were just not in my favor.
    By the way, my approach is to get all 6 from one map....well...technically 5, but that's because I went after one of each building first.
     
  9. Congratulations on getting the 6 colosseums, I just got mine a couple weeks ago.

    Congrats to you also and thanks. I plan on getting the 6 louvres and then stopping, since land expansion is crucial for non CBMs like us. I think with the first set of adventure buildings, you will have more than enough to get a lot of collections done. How are things in regards to fuel? Any tactics in that department that works for you?
     
  11. I am good on fuel, but I don't have any tactics. I'll stop after Aztecs until CBM comes out. However, I may go for some stars. Visa branches are an option long term of CBM does not come out, but likely it will only be for stars and not for the buildings.

    Ah ok got you. If it's mostly for stars, then you will stop well shy of what's required to get 6 of each, which will help in terms of fuel consumption
     
  13. However, if CBM comes out later this year, it will change my plans because I will be able to build more passenger and coin buildings and I will be able to buy more excavation maps. I am limited to 10 maps for outing.

    Still holding on to that hope eh? Have you reached at least 200 gold?
     
  15. Yes, but I am not going to hold my breath. I have 200 gold, but I think if they do offer it again it will go to 300.

    Yup just broke 200 and definitely will keep piling it on. They know we want this sale, and they will let us pay for that.
     
  17. I’ve got 4 Louvres and will finish the last ones when I have more fuel. I’ve started flying to Southern Europe and buying Scandinavia maps. I’ve found that I can finish 6 drops to a destination with Jumbos on about 6000-7000 units of fuel. That means 30,000-35,000 to get a building.

    For what it’s worth I get about 15,000 coins a day from my 50 adventure and space buildings that drop a daily collectible.

    I'm gonna go with the high end of 35k units, because with my success....it always seem to be more on the high end when it comes to fuel
     
  19. Must admit I go slower. Set myself a fuel limit of around 700 f20s and see how many drops I get with that on one destination. Hate the idea of burning all my stock of f20 in one go. @Davescharf you're a brave man to burn all of it! After 700 i might continue or change to alliance flights for the last 2 or 3 hours of the 6 hour GD.

    I usually save up to 500 and then go. However, with me moving on to bigger planes, definitely need to save for longer now. I like his idea though....and I think I may do just that; except I would split it over two weekends to get all 5 maps done. Thank you @Davescharf ....now I just hope to have the patience to save that many f20s :LOL:
