Stonecutters In Game Update 05/06/2014

Hey guys, just received a small in game update so to go with it here is a small post about the update:

  • Looks like what I’m calling the “Number 1 Glitch” has been fixed and you can access the top right button now.
  • The Nuke town option has been disabled, I’m guessing this is while they work out the kinks that people have had problems with
  • Storing trees is also disabled until that problem is fixed too

More details from mrfy’s reading of the code:

  • A number of buildings and decorationsnow have the storeoverride=”false” flag attached, including Kwik-E-Mart & its franchises, KrustyBurger and its franchises, shrubs, trees, wooden fences, garbage bin, dumpsters, planters, flowers, SeeSaw, GraffitiWall, Lamp Post, Burns Limo, DMV Limo, Fleet-A-Pita, a few of the Squidport decorations, and a bunch of the Krustyland buildings and decorations too.
  • The Houseboat and the Krustyland Entrance (in Krustyland) are now not spyable.

If you notice anything else, let us know!

Oh and thanks for reading my 60th post on this site!

  1. Anyone else experiencing severe lag then being kicked off within a matter of seconds? Takes about 5 reloading and logging in attempts, moving to a ‘quiet’ area before its even playable. Tried deleting and downloading again, force close. Nothing. When the stonecutters came out first time round had another bug that was making me start right from level 1 again. Resolved that issue with deleting the game. Never had so many issues before, at least the game was playable for me personally before. I’ve contacted EA see if this is a known issue and if they are working on in, shall see what they say. Good job I didn’t get a chance yet to make purchases lol.

  3. I can’t unlock the emblem prizes. I have enough emblems to unlock the Krusty Stonecutter skin but I can’t unlock it. Next to it says Unlock for -95 donuts. Why is it saying minus 95 donuts? Please help

    • You can still do the Number 1s tasks. Look throuh eaxh characters tasklist and spot the odd 1/2/4/6h task and set it. It will give you the emblems.

  4. I’m not sure if this has been commented or if it’s already there, but I notice now when u visit friends using the left & right arrow and then u go out to friends list (the 3 friends per page overview), u will come out at the page of the last friend u visited, instead of staying at the 1st friend u click. Does this make sense? Dont know how to put it. English is not my 1st language 🙂

  6. Yes, the glitch is back!

    But here’s another one…
    Last night I put all my characters on 12 hour tasks, this morning half of them are still on task, half are walking around with nothing to do. The weird thing is that the buildings they’re meant to be in are still showing their animations.

    • You can still guess the task by looking at each character’s tasks. If any 1/2/4h seems out of the normal it is usally that one and you only need to send one. It is timeconsuming bit it will give you emblems

    • Yep glitch back. Seems to return after the timeout period expires to complete quests for no1. But as M points out just go thru character finder looking for odd/new 1hr or 2hr tasks. As the tasks get removed when not active pretty easy to find next one if have most characters free 🙂

  8. This update came with a lot of bugs apparently, but all of the small improvements make things worth it once the issues are patched. My favorite change is that the camera now automatically moves to center on Sideshow Bob and follows him around whenever he appears…no more hunting all over the place for that righteousness-killing pest.

  9. Has anyone actually “caught” a neighbor spying after getting the notification?
    Even if I am looking at my phone when the alert comes in there’s no way this game loads fast enough to catch anyone in my town. What’s the point?

    Like

    • Spying means they left pyramids in your town. The sooner you collect the pyramids in your town the more emblems you get for them. It is a sliding scale starting with five. I dont know the intervalls but when I woke up they were down to two emblems.

    • Well, considering there is no player avatar at all during even normal game play, there’s certainly not one here. It’s no different from a visit push notification. You’re not supposed to see them or catch them spying.

  12. Hi. Hope everyone is enjoying this event as much as me. No “wheel of doom”. Lol. Does anyone know what the max amount of friend action stone cutters you can collect daily. Seems to run out before I’m finished visiting everyone. But I’ve been visiting all so they can collect on their end. Thanks.

      • These types of limitations (along with other event tasks, such as the easter egg swap) pose a disadvantage to those of us with a user name towards the end of the alphabet. Most people will stop after they got the 60 emblems. Just like with the egg swap, by the time friends reached me they had no more eggs to give me. So many empty baskets.

        Like

        • It is a shame. During easter I tried swapping with those I knew need it most. Thats the advantage with sites like tapped-out.co.uk you get to interact with your neighbours so you know whats up.
          Now I do the full round anyway because even if my 60 actions are up I still give pyramids and emblems to my friends if I tap their camras.

          Like

      • Are you sure minicha? I was curious if the pyramids are actually working after the limit as I’ve had a couple times where someone has tapped in my town but only 1 or 2 actually are pyramids and the remaining are the normal handshake icon.

        Also is the site going to set up a new Add-Me page for this event or should we use the standard one to fill out our friends lists again?

        Like

        • I’m not minicha but I’ll try answering. 🙂 You only get 60 actions per day in friends cities which earn emblems. Perhaps they tapped one or two things and then hit the 60 emblem limit, so other taps just gave $ and XP, and so you only see the handshake icon for that.

          There is a new page here, but you can also use the regular page here.

          • That’s what I was worrying about. I’d hate to think that by having more than 20 people on my friends list results in me just giving them the normal handshake instead of emblems once I pass that 60 action limit. 😦

            • I was worried too and asked friends that was over 60 actions to tap my town and it resulted in me getting pyramids! So I’ll be doing full rounds to give emblems to my neighbours and even thogh I dont get emblems back right away Im hoping they’ll reciprocate by visiting me when their 60 actions are up 🙂

  14. Another event, more frustration. Frozen at splash screen yet again. Managed one day of Easter event, so quite an improvement EA having managed two whole days with this one. Troubleshooting on all devices do not help. And yet I still continue to buy donuts in-game like an idioy. Constantly frustrated with this game, negating any fun I might have when this game actually works. Time to walk away..

  15. well it seems the freaking hotfix to patch the number1 bug is broken…. once the timer reset for the first time the top right menu stopped working both on my apple and android devices… good job lame developers @ EA, thanks for the buggy bugfix..so I reckon we may expect an other hotfix tomorrow, such a waste of time and data. .. fingers crossed this time they really manage to fix this very simple and basic issue…

If you have done 60 actions you wont get emblems until it resets, we hope. Check how many you have left to collect by tapping the ? by the emblemcount, bottom left when you are in a neighbours town.

        Braniac – Lisa
        Glutton – Homer
        Kid – well that’s pretty obvious
        Criminal – Snake
        Celebrity – Krusty
