  1. anyone know if ‘make Bart ride the twirl and hurl’ is a THoH task?

    1. He’s constantly ToT-ing in my town but it is one of his regular tasks unless you just placed the TnH. Havent checked if riding the TnH pays in probes/bags.

    1. You need to be past the 45sec joint task Lisa/Kang and the crafting of the nail on the board and so does your neighbours before any actions are available and then you tap the small aliens/characters with aliens over their faces.
      There’s a 90 probes a day limit from neighbours. Tap the “i” by the count on the minitown map, if you tap the “i” in your/neighbours town you will not see the actions left but the eventguide.
      In the minitowns, if the probecount is 0 you will not be able to do actions.

    Can anyone help me with a quest? I need to shoot a ufo with a friend, how do i do that?

    Like

    1. You don’t shoot a UFO WITH a friend, you visit a friend and shoot down a UFO in their town. Once you’ve reached this quest anytime you visit a friend you will now have the option to either tap on 3 gremlins or shoot down 3 UFO’s or mix and match them both. You will need Ammo to shoot down a UFO. Once you have enough, which when the quest first iniates you will be given enough or have earned enough already, then you just visit a friend’s town and tap the UFO.

  7. I can’t go into friends town or my other Springfield, it crashes. Have the gremlins won probes, but don’t know how to access. Anybody else have these problems?

    Like

    1. Many are playing right now so the servers are under pressure so crashes are more common. Do the basic troubleshoot. Hardclose app, shut off device, switch wifi, clear cache, free up space etc. If it persists through many tries and for the duration of the day contact EA http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/ same login as your game and see what they say.

  8. Any one had else had a problem with the quest “Free Hugs Pt. 2”?
    When I clicked on Kang’s protrait and was directed to Lisa the orange/quest option to make her “Question Kang’s Motives” was there, but I decided to make her clean up a bit of Springfield at that point instead.
    Since then the quest option has disappeared. The only 45 sec option I’ve got is to make her read a book. I’ve tried to get access to it from Kang’s portait to no avail and have even uninstalled and reinstalled. Any suggestions? (I’m on an android device btw)

    1. Both Kang and Lisa needs to be free. It should be in the taskbooklist to the left.

  9. I’m sure I didn’t actually craft this, but I received the Human Test Subject…just cause I guess. There was a pop-up about how the adventure would resume on October 20. What the hell is going on?

    1. Sometimes you get the items from popping aliens (in neighbours towns – not sure yet if it applies to the own town) and the next stage will start in 12 days, with new items to craft.

    Any reported problems visiting neighbors? Even the “other” Springfield has nothing to tap on

    Like

    1. I’m seeing it also. Have you started the main part of the event, after Lisa goes Trick or Treating in the quest Treat Yourself and then Questions Kangs Motives in Free Hugs Part 2? I think you have to do those first.

      1. I’m having the same problem – just started the trick or treating quest this morning, so I guess we’ll see, but I have nothing to tap on from neighbors and didn’t even get the popup message stating that the event has started…

  14. I’ve noticed a glitch when you shoot down one alien ship in a friend’s Springfield. After that you can shoot down unlimited nionexistent (invisible) alien ships in the same town, providing you have the ammo! That means unlimited prizes!

    So if you’re on the fence about rushing your first couple phases, my advice is YES, and take advantage of the glitch before they patch it.

  19. Well, the new update looks exciting!
    The trees are very beautiful with orange foliage and I love leaves floating in the wind and the darkened sky.
    The conversation between Lisa, chief Wiggum and Kang was pretty funny, too 😀
    So that’s a nice start and everything looks so fresh and bright!
    However don’t quite like the new build menu, neither the fact that we presumably won’t be getting all the prizes again %-))

  23. Yeah – at last! Was getting bored of elixir and gold gathering for no apparent reason. Liking the autumnal (fall) trees and hurrah to categories for the build menu – was just thinking they needed something to organise it better – especially if you have a lot in your inventory. Not sure about the format though – will see how it settles in.

    Like

  24. I have to send Kang on an 8 hour task and build a building for 8 hours before something happens. Till then all I can do is look at the admittedly beautiful trees. If the update had been available this morning like it was supposed to, I’d be almost done by now. Wait eight hours past the end of the Clones countdown, then wait another eight hours on top of that. They’re not exactly getting off on the right foot here.

    Still, at least Clones is over. (I wonder what happened to the last batch of nerds I sent out?) And Other Springfield is back down to Level 30, but it’s got its KL and SP back and is no longer completely gutted in its main town, so it looks better at Level 30 than it did at Level 40. Whatever.

  25. PSA: If the update isn’t showing up in the app store for you, something to try before deleting the app and reinstalling is to kill the app store and run it fresh (this has worked for me the last several updates). Double-click your Home button to open the multi-task manager, locate the app store, and swipe it up to kill its process. Then tap on the app store to reload.

So although frustrating maybe the wait was worth it.

                the prizes have 3 sections so even if you rush you still have 12 days until the 2nd set is unlocked and almost a month until the last set. I think it ends up being about 12-16 donuts to rush through everything to get to the invasion. I purchased it just to have the info for the site but i’d personally recommend rushing the 1st 3 parts and waiting on the last 2 since they are shorter tasks. Full walkthrough with times coming tomorrow
