Something else I really miss in the game are glitches! It feels like forever since we’ve had a good glitch! (At least one I’ve been privy to.) Nothing gets the core more amped up than earning quantum amounts of event currency (and/or bonuts) at breakneck speed until the glitch was fixed! It was usually the funnest part of the event. I even wondered if ea had built them in like an Easter egg, especially in those cases when it took them several days to patch. Awwwww, probably giving them too much credit!
Reducing awards for visiting neighbors. – What the hell was EA thinking with this move? I originally got 100 neighbors because it helped to have so many during events. But, after EA began to REDUCE awards for visiting them I didn't feel any motivation to check on anyone.
Wasn't TSTO supposed to be a social game? EA should have done the opposite and increased rewards are you went down your list of neighbors. By making the last 60 or so neighbor visits pointless, they killed the social aspect of the game.
This point you are making is exactly the same thinking I had done. Why on earth they reduce awards??? I ask this question to myself 100 times... I miss the events in where you had to visit neighbors so that you could make sure you don’t miss any of the content. That was fun. EA killed the fun because EA doesn’t understand fun. Apparently
I agree that this sucks. Helping neighbors has (had) always been an extremely satisfying component of the game. I'll speculate that their servers can't handle big spikes in the volume of activity, and that EA's goal is actually to reduce the amount of time we spend visiting -- probably even to reduce the amount of time we "need" to spend in game at all! They want to keep us involved (thus the introduction of mini-events), but not at the frenzied levels of the early big events.
I agree with so much of what's been said here. Yet I'm still in the game multiple times a day, playing every event, checking the forums daily, etc. The game isn't living up to its potential, but it's still a nice place to visit!
Glad to see the take down, also I'm glad the stages can still be used by the singers, but now there was a new character group called "County Fair 2017" with Little Miss Springfield Lisa, Amber and Mary. When do you think that will be up?

You're sending Cecil on his tasks that earn currency towards Road to Riches, right? (not just any task) Those tasks are listed first on his tasklist.
Then you have to send him often enough to earn how much the dam costs. The upper corner icon for daily challenges has a tab for road to riches, so it should let you know how much it costs, but I don't think it reports how much you've earned towards it so far. I can't remember.
I just finished the third prize last week (rock and a hard place). It's kinda fun. Good luck!
Is the bling cup worth crafting or should I save my tickets for more lights and speakers?
It just sits there and gleams a little bit. Very meh IMO. Though this is the point of the event where you start to accumulate tons of crafting currency and start to wonder what to do with it all anyway
I put mine in storage already ... BUT it's one of those items that seems like somewhere, sometime it will fit in perfectly with some area I'll be trying to pull together. There's 3 more weeks of this event ahead of us -- lots of currency to craft lots of stuff. I plan to craft a handful and tuck them into inventory (where I probably will never be able to locate them again!).
Is anyone else weirded out that marge has no teeth ??
I assume you're talking about the splash screen??!!! I'm not weirded out in the least. It's classic beatnik art ... a little picasso-ish. I think it's a great screen. I wish they'd create a billboard for Springfield with it!
Thanks for the demo! I should let this convince me but .... ... I'm still suspicious.
I got a new ipad a couple months back, putting my 4 year old ipad mini into semi-retirement. It's been a god send in terms of processor speed. But I'd hoped it would let me see more of my town on its larger screen, but nooooooo. And truly, during this event, it seems to almost zoom in a bit on it's own and I can't zoom it back out.
Hey, wouldn't it be fun if they did a solar eclipse today?!

Has anybody noticed any difference in how much (by which I mean how little) of your town is visible in a screen shot? I feel like there's been a change this week. Am I imaging this? Or is it town specific based on how many items you've got?
If it gets much worse, I feel like just one of these ginormous buildings they give us will take up the whole screen!
You know the next act starts Early tomorrow, right?!
Yeah, I worded it awkwardly. I dreaded having to fire it up today. I'm trying to enjoy summer. Here in New England we're very Stark: Winter is Coming. I want to enjoy the weather while it lasts. I've seen snow in September. Want to enjoy the beach while it's semi-swimmable.
I'm in Chicago, so I can relate to the specter of bad weather in the not too distant future! But I was afraid you were not going to log on for a few days and then find yourself in a panic! Didn't mean to harsh your mellow!
I finished Act I early (not as much of a slog as the last event, which I've already forgotten) so I'm taking a few days off. I know I could stock up on briefs and tickets and help my friends, but I look forward to days off more than events now.
You know the next act starts Early tomorrow, right?!
It takes me forever to find these yahoos in my town or in a neighbor's town. I had no idea there was a time limit on lawyers, that's ridiculous. Now I'll have to spend forever scouring my town, not knowing if there are any there or if I've gotten them all.
I dropped a bunch off in other people's towns (847.63 I dropped some off to you, too) but haven't had any notifications about it and it's been well over 4 hours. 10 visits and payouts stop is absolutely asinine. I usually have no idea what's going on until about day 3 of an event anyway, but this is too much. I still don't understand how to upgrade my jam musicians or how to unlock windows at Moe's or the Kwiki Mart. Whatever.
Honestly I hope they keep it a grinding disaster like Whacking Day was. Good times.
I miss the sneaky criminals they had for the first crime fighting event. And the Sideshow Bob clones. Those were characters that stood out from the crowd! Plus, our towns were sooooo much smaller then!
But it seemed like the number of neighbors you could visit before the payout stopped was a lot fewer than the usual 30. I didn't count, but I don't think it could have been more than 15 for me.
Does anybody know any different? (I was only visiting the neighbors who were live with the event yesterday, which was something like every 4th neighbor.)
The amt for payoffs is very small. You are not wrong.
Not only that, but I think that the lawyers we can drop in neighbors' towns (and vice versa) have a limited lifespan -- maybe even just 4 hours. So that if I drop lawyers in your town (which I just did) and you don't visit your town and find the lawyers within the time limit, you miss out entirely. And I do too, because I earn something when you clear them. I think this would be especially of concern with neighbors across the globe since our mid-day is their mid-night.
I miss him too. He's a neighbor but I constantly tag the name wrong 😔
Neighbour?? .....Sorry, I mean Neighbor? You mean Tapped Out Neighbor right?
I lost so much time with my health issues and still having them and it's taking me longer than I thought to get back into into the game. I can no longer keep up with the events, I still have my server with all the data being transferred to it everyday, but it's only ever same day release.
The only spoilers I could leak is the day of the event when the content is uploaded before the App Store updates appear, but that window is so close now, use to be half a day at least, now it's merely under an hour, unless there is a delay.
EA ruined my fun, and with copycats as well, I'm not knocking them and some of them I taught, but the information is already out there more than 20 times over after I reveal anything.
Maybe that's why I am unable to get back into it, the anticipation of knowing something and sharing it so that others can get ready for it, rather than it happening randomly.
The only thing I can leak nowadays are the event prizes and characters in the later acts of the event.
I think I need motivation too, to come back here, and I only came by to look for some chatter of what people here think of the Futurama game and if others would agree with me that it's such a shame TinyCo got it, as that rules out any Tapped Out / Futurama crossover, and also maybe rules out any Futurama characters coming into Tapped Out for what ever reason. Also TinyCo make you spend money, with Tapped Out you can complete storylines without having to spend money, or pressured to because you have a time limit of 1 hour to unlock a character.
Anyway I've typed too long and gone way off topic.
I miss me too...
Well, yes, we miss the leaks Outerhaven .... but more than that we just miss your banter! So sorry to hear you're having continuing health issues. Forum peeps continue to send you good vibes and wishes for better health.
(Can't help with the Futurama conversation! I've drawn the line for wasted time on TSTO!)
