What Changed with the Thanksgiving/Covercraft update?

Along with the new characters, buildings, and decorations which arrived with both the Thanksgiving update and the Covercraft episode tie-in update, there were a few additional changes worked into the game:

  • Four new character groups were added: Regular Male, Regular Female, Premium Male, and Premium Female. These are used to send groups of characters to various tasks in the Covercraft episode tie-in quests.
  • The sound file HOMER_JOB-GOOD1.caf was changed from playing when Homer gets assigned a good job to a bad job. This is the “D’oh” sound, which always seemed out of place when he said it for a good job.
  • This update added the “Heimlich Machine”, one frame of the animation of which, now altered, was found in the Halloween 2014 event.

That’s all I spotted from perusing the changes, let us know if you spot anything else. 🙂

  2. Could you give me more details on which homer/Lisa tasks unlock the covercraft tie in? I haven’t seen anything referencing the tie in…?

  4. My Bad Dream House was lit up last night. I got excited and thought it might be from sending Lisa to get exorcized and that it might be a new permanent task associated with it. Tapped on the house but there wasn’t a task tied to it. I’m on 3G out in a rural area and connection is spotty. Of course, 10 seconds after seeing it lit up, I get the cannot connect to server screen. When I got back in, it wasn’t animated anymore and I found that Lisa’s task takes place in the brown house. Any idea what might have caused the bad dream house to light up? Guessing it’s a weird glitch, which is a shame because it’s such a cool animation.

    1. I think you’re right, that it was a weird glitch. I miss that animation too and wish a permanent task would be issued utilising the BDH so we could see it whenever we want. Maybe for Hugo?

      1. They could just have a task for The Simpson family to move into the Bad Dream House. Or a questline for all characters: “Make everybody die in the Bad Dream House.” Or the Tribal Chief could “Mourn his ancestors.”

          1. I bought the BDH this Halloween and was disappointed to not see it light up, but know it can. I hope they add a task for it also!

  5. Haven’t seen any of these items? Am I missing something? No regular or premium male or female, Mayflower, turkey, cover craft not available?

    1. The male/female wont show in the game. Those are labels to assign characters on multitasks, like “send women to shop”.
      The Mayflower is a return premiumitem that should be in following store menus (if you do not already have it): Thanksgiving, premium, decoration, micsellany
      To access all the storemenus, drag the blue flap to the right. Pictorial: https://www.flickr.com/photos/97970323@N05/15650625957/
      Covercraft is the tie-in for this weeks Sundayepisode. You need to do the Lisa/Homer tasks to unlock the premium limited time Guitarstore. They are short tasks. The Guitare store costs 50 donuts and will be available until Monday.

  6. All my trees are yellow and dead. Any idea when that will change? I miss the nice green

    1. If you live in a temperate zone this is what the trees look like now. Soon they’ll be covered in snow and when spring comes they’ll turn green again. The game reflects this, and the pines are evergreen just like IRL.

    it’s weird how the KL balloons (Itchy, Stratchy and Poochie’s) are separate from the SF ones, and they’re still buyable, but the SF counterparts aren’t present in this update. they’re different cause you can’t use the SF ones in KL and viceversa
