What Changed with the Level 48 update?

Along with the new characters, buildings, and decorations which arrived with the level 48 in-game update, there were a few additional changes worked into the game:

  • A 12 hour task at the Open Air Stage was added for Lurleen (if you have her). The Lurleen’s Country Music Show costs $150 to start and pays $800 and 200 XP. It uses the same audio as the Skinner Sisters when you start the task.
  • Sideshow Opera’s payout at the Open Air Stage was changed from $990 and 220 XP to $900 and 150 XP. This puts the task in a more logical place for earnings, but it does decrease the advantage of keeping Mel singing.
  • Janey was added to the list of kids who can be bounced at the Moonbounce. Code was also added to fix the issue with Willie’s task at the Moonbounce not being enabled.

  • Janey has been added to the list of characters who can shop at the Kwik-E-Mart and Go To School. Kang was removed from the list of characters who can Drink At Moe’s.
  • The Writer’s Building task was changed from Making Magic Happen to Writing For All The Characters.
  • The sounds for Patty and Selma have been switched. These are the sounds played when you tap the character, assign them tasks, and when they complete tasks. All along (at least as far back as July 2013 when I started to track changes) Patty has been using the Selma audio files and vice versa.
  • Building base multipliers updated. Level 40 buildings are now at the base rate, levels 41 & 42 at 1.3 times the base rate, level 43 at 1.4 times, level 44 at 1.6 times, level 45 at 2 times, level 46 at 3 times, and levels 47 and 48 at 4 times.
  • Default job rewards for 36 hour tasks has changed. Regular characters’ 36 hour tasks will now pay $825 and 210 XP rather than $750 and 200 XP. Premium characters’ tasks will now pay $1240 and 315 XP rather than $1100 and 300 XP. It looks like when they added default rewards for 32 hour tasks they used the 36 hour values and then didn’t adjust the 36 hour ones higher until now.
  • Default building premium 6 hour earnings has changed $175 and 20 XP to $175 and 18 XP.
  • Clash of Clones, Valentine’s 2013, Valentine’s 2014 and Easter items can now be placed in Krustyland.

I haven’t been covering the changes to the store or inventory menus in these posts, since to list all of the changes for which items appear where would take forever to compile. But they’ve increased the number of recommended items in the store menu from 2 to 4.

Let us know if you spot anything else. πŸ™‚

    why does EA have a problem with making premium characters?

    i found this while i was play:
    while suzane the witch is a premium character, her 12 hr task… that takes place on her premium gingerbread house earns 420 when it should earn 1200

    1. Suzanne was not originally a premium character (free prize Halloween 2013) and her earnings has not yet been changed.

        Actually she has… when i saw 840 on the cast wicked spells, I pulled the house to replant her
        her 8 hr task is 420 – premium
        her 24 hr task is 1000 – premium…
        her 12 hr task is 840 when it should be 1200

        i have seen these problems like with problems with manjula’s 1 hr formerly

        I won Suzanne in halloween 2013… so i know the numbers

        1. Whenever a cash/free character turns premium there are issues. Some tasks updates to premium rate some dont. Sometimes it takes very long for the rates to change. If these are misses, negligance or overlooks from EA, I dont know, ask EA http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/
          As for Suzanne’s 12h task, it complicates rates as a regular character is involved same as Manjula’s 1h

  2. The game’s glitchy as hell now. Most people, after completing a task in a given building, will just stand around outside that building till I send them somewhere else. If I give them a job that involves walking around, they’ll stay right in front of the building while they do it. Collecting income from buildings is a huge chore. When the Feds are on screen, everything lags as badly as it did after they took down the Easter event (and man, is it ever fun trying to catch targets who move faster than the screen scrolls!) Even when they’re not on screen, it’s not much better. Worst of all, I keep getting the screen where Bart’s unplugging the modem, or else it crashes altogether. Way to ruin a good time, EA.

    1. I understand and share some of your irritation. Please, it adds to TopiXs frustration to read this, knowing that we are not in a position to do anything about it unless you count lending a sympathetic ear. I suggest you take it directly to EA.
      Contact EA directly http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/ and ask for a gameadvisor. Same login as the game.

    2. I wonder if anyone else has this glitch? I’ve finished all my daily tasks on time but I have not received Giltroy(?) On some days I did not see the daily task complete screen so I’m missing out on three elves as well. My daughter has been in-undated with school work so I have been doing her daily tasks at the same time as mine and her game is fine, she is on a Kindle 7inch, mine is a Kindle Fire HD. As his first job was to “eat a cat” I’m not to bothered to have missed him but I wonder if this will mess up the new tasks that start in three days? I have deleted and ‘re-download the game but to no avail. By the time I get an answer from EA Christmas will be over.

      Thanks for a wonderful site. I hope you all enjoy the holidays.xxx

        1. Thanks. This seems to be the biggest event in the two years I’ve been playing. Whilst I’m enjoying it, all the glitches are just so irritating. Maybe a smaller event that works would be better?

  3. Is there any relevance to t MOONBOUNCE? I’ve had it since it came out but was never assigned any tasks to complete. Are there any? Ty, Anth.

    1. A two part quest. To bounce a kid and have Willie hurt a kid. There’s a glitch that even though you completed pt 2 Willies task is locked. No fix on the way.
      They payouts are different so look closely, price to bounce is always $50. Sherri n Terri pays most, than premiums, Janey and regular. Strange that Janey pays more.

  6. Good morning Springfield, it’s Sunday a great day of American football and the “Animation Domination”. A couple things rattling around the brain. Is there anymore tunnels? Do you think we’ll be able to keep the “Feds” after the Christmas event…. you think that they are here to stay or are they getting on the sleigh with Santa and getting the heck out of Springfield….Kansas, I think? I saw it on one of the couch gags, if you look hard enough… Anyways what do you think? Thanks.

    1. No more tunnels, unless they reuse them for phase two (I dont think they will though). Feds and Santa will leave Springfield, Feds might leave the game when phase one ends in three days but Santa will remain during pt 2.

    thanks!
    there are a lot of changes. it has been CRAZY
    some other we noticed:
    A glitch with the Writers Building is now whenever you exit the game, go to Krustyland or the friend screen and re-enter your town, the Writers Building will reward you wish cash every time irrespective of the timer to when it should be available.

    Thanksgiving 2014 and Black Friday 2014 triggers were removed.

    Animations fixed in the quest “You Got Your Schokolade In My Erdnussbutter Pt. 4”.

    Happy elf victory dance removed to prevent potential game crash when leaving the Toy Workshop.

    Zombie pet explosion animation fixed.

    A potential menu gang involving Gil fixed.

    “The Krusty-est Place on Earth Pt. 1” quest potential crash fixed.

    A bug when selecting Castles as a friend was fixed.

    All 4th July (both 2013 and 2014) characters have been moved to the group 4th July and the name got fixed.

    Clash of Clones, Valentine’s 2013, Valentine’s 2014 and Easter items can now be placed in Krustyland.

      Thanks for the info on Krustyland, I’m totally spending tonight dumping all my unwanted C-O-C, Valentine’s & Easter crap in there. If I move my castles in there will they still pay out though? I don’t care if they pay out in Krustland tickets, ‘cos all I ever do is exchange them for cash anyway but if they just sit there doing nothing I may as well leave them in springfield.

          Probably still worthwhile as I have all the land available in both KL & Springfield but Springfield is almost full up & KL is about 3/4 empty.
