Home Street- How to Increase Your Storage

The question I have been asked most about Home Street so far is ‘how do I increase my storage?’ and ‘where is my storage?’

Where is the storage/storeroom?

Your storage is this shelving unit:

If you click on it you can see all the items you have made and collected, you also have a capacity, once you reach the capacity you have to increase your storage so you can store more items. Click on increase storage:

You will need items to increase your storage, these will change each time you increase the storage. If you don’t know how to find an item click on the question mark and it will say something like ‘measuring tape occasionally drops when completing jobs’ this means when you complete jobs you have a chance of finding measuring tapes but you aren’t guaranteed to find them so it can take some time!

Check out my Home Street: The Basics post if you are unsure about jobs

Where can I get notebooks and other items?

Notepads occasionally drop when completing jobs:

Below I have listed some items and how you can find them, this is just the ones I know about so far!

  • Encyclopedia- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Portrait- make on the easel
  • Landscape- make on the easel
  • Still Life Painting- make on the easel
  • Measuring tape- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Bird house- make on the woodworking table
  • Rocking horse- make on the woodworking table
  • Power tool- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Planks- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Sketch- make on the drafting table
  • Energy drink- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Cupcakes- make on the baking oven
  • Carrot cake- make on the baking oven
  • Red velvet cake- make on the baking oven
  • Notepad- occasionally drops when completing jobs
  • Vegetables- make on the garden bed
  • Flowers- make on the garden bed
  • Woolly hat- make on the loom
  • Stripy socks- make on the loom

Is there anything you need help with in Home Street? Let me know!

NEW GAME: Home Street- The Basics

A new game was released this week called Home Street, I am going to explain the basics of the game and what I think of it so far. 
When you first begin the game you customise your character and then they move into a house that you can also customise as you progress through the game:

The aim of the game is to produce materials on workstations to complete jobs and tasks. You start with the easel workstation to produce paintings and new workstations can be brought from the shopping cart when you level up and unlock them:

Once a material has been produced a pop up of that item will appear, click on it to collect it:

Materials will go into the storeroom which has a capacity of 40 items to start with:

To produce materials you need to use thoughts, you produce these in the thought bubble icon by clicking on the thoughts at the top of the screen, underneath them it tells you how long it takes to produce them. I think they could change this to make it easier to see when an item has been produced:

You do only have space for 40 thoughts which fills up quickly, I hope this won’t be another one of those games where the items you need to upgrade are hard to find!

How do you know what thoughts and materials you need?

Underneath the picture of the item you are making there is a picture or several pictures of the items you need to make that item, for example, cupcakes require 1 fun thought and carrot cake requires 1 fun thought and 1 vegetables. Vegetables aren’t a thought, they are an item you make using the garden bed:

Once you have created materials you can complete jobs (phone symbol) if you have the materials you need click complete to earn your reward, some jobs require thoughts instead of materials:

Producing materials and completing jobs helps you to complete tasks, completing these unlocks places around the town:

Where are these icons located?

  • Tasks (top left corner)
  • Shopping Cart-buy items and decorate your house (bottom left corner)
  • Friends- connect to facebook to add friends and save your progress (next to Shopping Cart)
  • Jobs (bottom right corner)
  • Thoughts (next to Jobs icon)
  • Walls icon- changes the walls in the house to half wall, full wall and no wall (top right corner)

 

So far I like this game, it does remind me of SimCity Build It with the material producing and also the new The Sims Mobile game although I think the controls and graphics are more basic than those games. This game does crash a lot on my poor old iPod so I haven’t been able to play it for long however that’s due to the age of my device and not the game itself but I will definitely be playing it more once I get a new iPad and I will actually be able to play The Sims Mobile when it is released (which disappointingly isn’t compatible with older devices, just so you know!) as well as many other new exciting games!

Have you tried Home Street yet? What do you think?

Unsure where to find the storage or how to upgrade your storage? Check out this post!
