    It appeared the ELON was playing Tapped Out on the screen in his ship at the end of Sunday’s episode………..LOL!


    1. LoL. Saw that too. Low level, small town. Marge in the topleft characterfinder but no Moe’s visable…


      1. Moe’s Tavern can be on the right off screen but the level is low. weird


  2. Cynical New Yorker speaking – What a coincidence: the 3 electric cars cost the same as the islands, 120 donuts. So after buying the cars, can I expect EA to give them away to everyone for free? Ugh. Screw me once shame on you, screw me twice shame on me. Not happening.


    1. goaliegrrl31 01/26/2015 — 15:17

      Interesting. Has anyone purchased these E-Cars or plan to?


        1. goaliegrrl31 01/26/2015 — 16:59

          Do you like them? How large are they? Would you say they are worth the donuts minicha?


          1. I like them fine. About the same size as other cars. Best buy is the yellow, if youre looking for most bonus/donut (I think). For me, this is an acceptable price range for vehicles.


  3. Hey, is there any rhyme or reason to deciding which episodes get tie-ins? Thinking back on those I can remember offhand, a few are obvious landmark episodes, like season premiers and finales, or the Futurama crossover. But mostly, they seem to be chosen more or less at random.


    1. probably fox chooses them to get more people to watch them. if i was fox i’d release one tie-in every episode 😀


  4. The net neutrality ‘satire’ in this quest is sooooooo hamfisted.

    And then Willie’s subquest just ends after two steps. Ever feel like they’re not really trying? 😉


    1. Yeah, I hear ya.


  5. Huh, so Willie’s quest is only two steps after all, that’s not a mistake. I was wondering why he wasn’t prompting me to do more; I figured it would involve each of his five regular tasks.


    1. yeah sometimes the quest doesn’t cover all tasks


      1. I should be used to it by now, but I have to say, it feels pretty lazy. Especially since this skin and the non-bonus-increasing decoration that comes with it are the only new content in this tie-in.


          1. Well yeah, that too, for premium players.


  6. goaliegrrl31 01/22/2015 — 21:32

    ELECTRIC CARS – can these new premium/donut decorations actually be placed on the roads – does anyone know? THANKS!


    1. no they can’t like the others, but you can place them on concrete


      1. goaliegrrl31 01/22/2015 — 21:33

        THANK YOU! Sorry, I posted twice


      2. And that’s exactly the reason why I’m not gonna add them to my town.


    2. More importantly, who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Gutenberg a star?


  7. Joren Arens 01/22/2015 — 20:06

    Is that Slave Labor Willie, a cotume or a new character??


  8. Why don’t they give us this Musk guy?


    1. No idea. I would ask ea but the ea forum is down


      1. Probably because he’s a real person.


        1. well then what about Matt Groening?


          1. Matt Groening is the Simpsons creator. No need for licensing there. Whereas Mr. Musk may require payment to use his likeness in the game.


        2. Really? Never heard of him. And the name does sound like a fictional character.
