Black Friday 2014 Update Info

An in-game update hit earlier but due to Thanksgiving and family and work I haven’t had time to view the files. But to keep you all informed as up to the minute as possible I’m sharing the hard work from our friends at SimpsonsWiki. The Black Friday update will be HOURLY just like the stores so be sure to follow the guide and don’t miss out on any good deals. More from us tomorrow.

  1. My own two cents on the Truckasaurus:

    Cost: 225 donuts (approx. $26.95)
    4.75% bonus money + XP

    Though I have personally got the item (because, I am a completist), do not get this item if you don’t plan on bankrupting your account. It is just a decoration. There are so many other things you can get with 225 donuts (I won’t list them here, but these do include: Barney’s Bowlarama…and any other building that comes with a character and a building). With no quest associated with this decoration, this is a bigger waste compared to the Ghost Pirate Airship (which at least had a quest involved with the decoration and a permanent job for the Sea Captain). DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    1. 300 donuts = $19.99
      225 donuts = around $15. How did you come up with $26.95?

      1. Depends on what pack you buy. If you buy a boatload the price is less than $10

    And have lost the option to place guitar central,
    And krustys mansion is missing from my storage

    Plus, the left overs task failed to start for me

    1. Rare but not unheard of. This sometimes happens when you nuke the town. Limiteds are sensitive and can be lost or stuck. Not good.
      Contact EA directly http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/ and ask for a gameadvisor. Same login as the game.

        1. It is very rare but it should never happen at all! The more ppl that complain the more likely it will be fixed so contact EA. They should be able to fix it on an individual level and if not you should get some donuts for your trouble.
          Even though the advisors sometimes can be a bit incompetent, they are always nice and helpful once you get past the generic responses – those can be wierd and off topic.

  8. These black friday deals are garbage. What is this rebate nonsense. EA should discount these overpriced items. Most are not worth buying. Even Truckasaurus is massively over priced. Donuts cost real money. 225 donuts will cost around Β£12. More and more items are premium these days. EA’s greed is starting put me off playing.

    1. Hmm…I respectfully disagree. I’m a happy freemium player who has been saving forever and set alarm for 5 am to (finally) get Barney! Now deciding between Frink’s Lab and Duff Brewery…leaning towards Frink.☺️ Thoughts?

        Frink or Duffman? Both are great, I prefer Frink but Duffman has more (although simular) outside tasks. Both have buildings that earns rent, if space is an issue the Lab is smaller. None of them can go to Krustyland.

    2. I’d take Frink because you get both a character and a building. That’s true of Largo as well, but I feel like between the two Frink is the far more central character.

      1. Yes Frink is a more central character and I do like (prefer) him but the christmas decos will cost more donuts and I think the Lotto store will add to the difficult Consumorism rating. Personal preferances should be what matters and we all think differently.

  27. The update disabled Puritan Flanders’ 4h job to punish himself. Its requirement shows an error, but I tend to believe that its gory animation was disabled this way quickly before removing/replacing the task permanently with a later update. Even though I found it pretty funny, I can easily figure humorless folks objecting and protesting accordingly.

  28. The update disabled Pilgrim Flander’s 4hr task (Self Punish)…the task says that it now requires “(Null)*”. The update also removed the task involving Sacajawea Lisa and Pilgrim Flander’s to eat at the pilgrim table (can’t recall what length that task was for).
