Visitable Agency Headquarters - Coming Jan 14th

On Saturday, Jan 14th, (right after midnight server time), we're going to launch an expansion that will make Agency Headquarters visitable locations on the map. Agency members will also be able to purchase furniture and other headquarter perks and decorate their own offices to suit your taste.

* Access Agency features such as the equipment locker and Case files from the convenience of the case page.

* In-game purchases will allow you to decorate your agency meeting room and individual offices to your taste.

* Some special perk furniture will provide game benefits such as expanded personal storage space and your own couch to nap on!

In order to access these features you'll need to be a member of an agency.

Secret Squirrel will also be running a special Sleuth Showdown to mark the event, so keep your eyes open for that.

Happy Sleuthing

1) Although things like floor and wall patterns are just for vanity's sake, the furniture all has real value.

In particular, we are planning on soon introducing a new feature that will make the personal locker space quite compelling for some people.


2) There are many people who have been in active agencies for a long time who have hundreds of unspent challenge points. So there do need to be some very expensive items for them to aspire to.


3) Furniture and decorations in the common Agency Meeting Room are paid for by pooling your Challenge Points in the agency safe, so high prices on those items is more reasonable.


4) Don't consider the prices in the screenshots final. Some may be coming down, although (as I said), I do want to keep the high end items very expensive.


5) We're going to be introducing more items going forward we'll take what we learn from how the first batch prices work out into consideration for those later items.


5) Although anybody who is a member of an agency (i.e. lapsed subscribers) will be allowed to make use of their Agency Headquarters, only active subscribers will be able to edit/decorate. Lapsed subscribers will be allowed to contribute to the communal CP pool for Meeting Room purchases however.

Hi Ben,

So when we play cases later, while in the map we can view the agencies HQ available in the map, can we just go in and have a look without getting permission from their agency Directors?

Hey folks,

Those of you who are in agencies have probably noticed that your headquarters are now visible on that map.

There are a few loose ends that will be tied up over the next few days, but feel free to decorate them.

The location on the map varies depending on how nice your Headquarters is.

The Whiskey Cellar, Garage and Warehouse are all in Doylesburg.

The Offices are in Hammett Square.

Penthouse and Mansion are in North Christie.

* I had to temporarily lock Private Filing Cabinets because there is a bug I found with them. Hoping to have that cleared up soon.

* Anytime you decorate, you get booted to the map and need to re-enter HQ to see your change. This should also be fixed soon.

* The Red Hotline currently is functionally the same as the black phone (but looks way cooler). The plan is make this more configurable so you can check which members to broadcast too, rather than only being able to send to all.

* Feel free to post all the crazy furniture items you'd like to see.
