  • Sorry to say this, but it's impossible to complete Johann's contracts without spending gems. Granted, you get a pittance daily, but it's one of those contracts that you will find yourself ending up having to go and either a.) buy gems, or b.) doing another contract that pays them.

    • Which part of the contract did you need to spend Gems on? I completed it an I am fairly certian I did not spend any gems.

        Loading editor
    • I didn't spend gems on any of Johann's contracts. Almost every contract in TS has an 'OR' in its description. So then the choice is up to you to spend gems or gold.

    • i did not spend any gems either.... granted.. it is faster if you do.. buy you dont have to... and i did not.

    • NO contractor EVER requires ANYONE to spend gems--EVER.

      Pixel Federation has made it quite clear that they want to make sure that everyone can play every part of the game without being forced to spend gems.  That's one of the biggest reasons the game is so successful.

      As Mr.Goldfinger stated, many contracts give the option to do something that requires gems OR to do something that does not require gems. In addition, when a contractor asks for a "complete train set", the set is considered complete if it includes all wagons that are available for gold.  If the set includes wagons that are available only for gems, the contractor does not need to see those wagons to consider the set complete.

      NO contractor EVER requires ANYONE to spend gems--EVER.

    • Guys, just NO.

      If you have to send a train set, you don't have to buy every wagon of this set.
      What you need is the loco and the corresponding number of wagons (depending on the power of the loco).

      No, you do not. There are two basic ways to construct it without using gems.

      1. Adler + Adler Mail x4

      2. Adler + Adler 2nd Class x4

      Alternatively, you could use some combination of the Adler Mail and Adler 2nd Class, but you certainly do not require spending gems to complete any contract.

      The basic misunderstanding is that oftentimes the contract picture will show an example train set that includes wagons that are available for gems. The picture is purely for example, and does not represent the exact construction of the train required to complete the contract.

    • So are we saying here  that it is only the loco that matters? That so long as it is the right loco, you can hook anything up behind it just so long as the total hauling power of the loco is filled? And does the stock have to be from the same set as the loco, or can you pull any old stock?

        Loading editor
    • Needs to be from the same set as the loco to qualify. Does not have to include any GEM wagons but does need to include other wagons from the set.

        Loading editor
    • Basically, if the train is full and the train builder shows the "set" star-shaped sign, then it's a complete set. The only case where you need to spend gems for a set is when either

      - the locomotive costs gems

      - you can't buy enough non-gem wagons to fill up the locomotive

      So for instance if a loco costs money, and it takes 12 wagons, and you can buy (for money) at most 8 lumber transports of the same set, all the rest of items in the set are sold for gems, then you are forced to buy the pieces with gems. But if it is possible to fill up te locomotive only with normal wagons (of the same set), then the set is complete, no need to use the gem-costing wagons.

        Loading editor
    • Exactly.

      To date I know of no locomotive required for a contract that require gems nor any set that can't be filled with just wagon purcahsed with gold to satisfy a contract.

      Right. Except that it never happens.  Never.  Ever.  Under any circumstances.  Ever.

      Once again, Pixel Federation has made it quite clear that they want to make sure that everyone can play every part of the game without being forced to spend gems. If you THINK you are being forced to spend gems, then you haven't looked at all of the options. Look again, and if you still can't find a non-gems option, ask, because it's 100% guaranteed to be there.

      NO contractor EVER requires ANYONE to spend gems--EVER.

      The TPE train coaches are NOT for sale with gems. You can get the tail car if you complete the task of recieving 20 gems from the green trains with gems. The other cars are availible after you build four 'dancing towers' and collecting a cetrain amount of gold. You have the loco if you sell 200,000 fuel. So what gave you the idea of spending gems for the TPE?

      To qualify as a 'Set' you need the proper locomotive and any of the cars that are part of the set. You do not need one of each car. When you put together the train in the construction yard, as long as the yellow 'SET' star is showing, your fine. If you add the wrong car, the 'SET' star will go grey. You just need to add enough cars to fill the locomotive which in the case of the Flying Scotsman is 6. They can be 6 of just one type of car that belongs to the set. So you can use just the cars that cost Gold

      and not have to spend any money on Gems.

    • Robert jankovic:

      1. That's a bad example, because the two wagons that can be purchased for gems also have a non-gems method of owning them. In fact, in both cases, the non-gems method is free--and ADDS gold to your treasury!
      2. As stated above many times by many people, when a contractor asks for a "complete set", all you need is for the locomotive to be pulling its maximum power, and for every wagon in the train to be of the same set as the locomotive. If you want, every wagon in the train can be identical (in other words, the same wagon.)

      NO contractor EVER requires ANYONE to spend gems--EVER.

    • The image in the contract window is only an indication of the available wagon types for that set
      To make a set, you need the loco, and enough wagons to match the power of the loco
      The Flying Scotsman is a 6-power loco, so you need 6 wagons to make a set

      The Flying Scotsman loco, has a limit of 2, so you can buy 2 in the shop
      The Gresley LNER wagons, have no limit, and are available for gold in the shop

      NEVER try to complete a set with gem wagons, it's not required, and a complete waste of gems
