Build and Upgrade:
|It's Time to Innovate! is a Timed Quest in which the player has 192 hours to build and upgrade a total of 5 areas with assets leading up to technology-related rewards. It was released as part of an update on 11.15.2013.
"An innovation refers to a fundamental update to an old product or the creation of a fundamentally new one. Megapolis's scientists have offered to start developing a search engine that will work with images rather than words. This is currently one of the more pressing problems in search engine functionality.
"The residents beg the mayor: Create in image-based search engine
"We need to build a center for innovative technologies, a University of Information Technologies, and a system testing office. Specialists will create the development environment and invent an innovative system, and the mayor will present it to the public!"
Depending on how one plays the game, this quest may require approximately 410 total (for assets) and 495,000 (for building and foundation purchases) to complete fully.
Stage 1 - Innovative Technologies
An innovation refers to a fundamental update of an existing product or the creation of a fundamentally new one. Megapolis's scientists and tech experts can create an innovative product that the whole world will clamor for! We just need to create the conditions for this innovation.
- It's time to develop new innovations! Start building a special research center and tell your friends about it.
|Buy the Center for Innovative Search-Engine Technologies Foundation|
|Visit five friends|
- Megapolis is about to become a center of innovative product development, and it's all thanks to your efforts. Would you like to tell your friends about it?
Stage 2 - Innovative Software Development
Megapolis' scientists have offered to start developing a search engine that will use images rather than words. This is currently one of the more pressing problems in search-engine functionality.
