With today's FrontierVille update, we've seen the launch of a new building and quest line dealing with a new character in the game - Lt. Flintlock (like the pistol). Lt. Flintlock apparently has taken a liking to Bess, and has decided to set up camp near our Homesteads. The troops are on their way to Fort Courage, but before they leave, they'd like to shower and get some rest, which is where you come in. You'll need to build the troops a shower, which is a new complete building project in the game.
While this feature is slowly rolling out to players, once you have it in your game, the Shower will be unlocked for users level 25 and above. It requires six new building ingredients to complete. Remember, this goes along with a new mission set as well, so don't scoff it off just yet. To build the Shower, you'll need to collect 10 each of Rusty Faucets, Bath Robes and Towel Racks (which are earned through general news feed posts), and 15 each of Pull Chains, Clay Reservoirs, and Privacy Cloths. These are earned via specific requests you'll send to each of your friends.
Once you build the Shower, you'll be able to give the soldiers a shower once every eight hours. You'll have a chance at receiving energy, water-themed animals, water well building parts, coins and experience points every time you collect the Daily Bonus from the Shower as well.
Once you've completed both the Shower building and the Shower Goals, you'll see the troops have packed back up and are ready to continue on to Fort Courage. Just as rapidly as they appeared, they disappear, and will be gone from your land the next time you load the game.
This likely won't be the last we see of Lt. Flintlock in FrontierVille, so hurry and complete this Shower to get on his good side. You probably wouldn't like him when he's angry.
