  1. Anyone else get an astronomical increase in house prices? Just went to put some more white houses down, and the game wants $192,000! Forget that! Wondering if this is EA’s attempt to stop house farms, since I have a lot of them and blue houses, which also were very expensive.

      The price increases depending on how many houses you have. It stabelises at 25.
      Why this was done, we can only speculate. I think it was an unnecessary change.

  3. Hi folks! After I’d finished the final Issue quests and bought the last strip of land, I decided it was time for a refresh. So I nuked my town. Upon rebuilding I’ve discovered that Krusty’s house is gone–and possibly other things though I haven’t discovered what yet.

    What is the best course of action for me to take?

    Also: beach house?

    1. the only way to solve it is to Contact EA directly http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/ and ask for a gameadvisor. Same login as the game.
      for the beach house it’s still unknown when it’ll be released

    So, I received an email at 1 this morning for a posting about the beach house and some other items but when i click on the read more link it takes me to a dead page. Did I miss something?

    1. I think it was set on auto publish but when the items wasnt released as stated it got delayed. Still no sign of the items, so no published post yet as we try to avoid spoilers.

  6. I’m just wondering when the game is gonna offer new land?? I’m a long time player and like my Springfield the way it is, Im just running out of room for new items. It’s been a very long time since an update with new land has been available.

    Like

    1. it’s not offered due to the need for ea to mantain the game stable enough on all platforms and having more land gives the game more lag and crashes.

      1. All the new buildings are great (a few seem excessively large) but the need for more land is ongoing. The latest new land was used immediately because I already had buildings in storage. Now have 21 buildings in storage and no space for anything new. Storage is complicated too – you have to be careful not to store anything that includes a character. Also too bad more of the new items aren’t offered for accumulated $ – I buy pretty much everything offered and several of each, and still have 271 million plus & increasing every day by another million. Please, please, please – more land!

      You must have insane amounts if pointless things.

      I’m at 5 stars with only 2 of each house (no fascade and a “Christmasland” setup for that junk)and I have enough open space for at least 40 houses.

      Sell all basic houses except one or two of each. Two if you want a permanent Christmas facade.

  7. I finished issue 4 and have radioactive man flying around on his first task. I’m experiencing a weird glitch though, apparently when you finish the final blow sequence; you are able to change the type of radioactive man monument you have(destroyed, angry, brand new, etc) by tapping on it, but when I try to change it the game crashes. Very odd.

  9. I haven’t rushed a thing, and, including the 12 hr. task that was apparently changed, I’m already on the final blow task. What’s the big deal with 12 hrs.? There’s plenty of time to do everything.

    1. Ditto on all counts! This is designed to go fast, even having minor issues getting. Criminals one go round, I’m on the final blow task and it will be done this evening. Knock wood other than the occasional disconnect/Bart screen of Death I haven’t encountered any of the major issues I see people talk about. I’m lucky I guess and I hope it stays that way!

    2. Losing time when there’s a limit is stressful and frustrating. Yes, there is plenty of time left but if you’d lost 24-48h due to a glitch (and before the fix not knowing how much/little time you’d actually have) you’d stress too even if it is not a race. Reducing Pt 5 dont make much differance but the gesture is very nice.

    1. 12h event? what? I think the reduction is to compensate the people that had major bugs and since the event ends on 31st there’s not much time and they wanted to give them more then just a fix 😉

      1. That’s decent of them. I haven’t had any connectivity issues, just one rather bizarre freeze after I finished some task or other (this was a few days ago and I don’t recall which task it was). I had to delete and reinstall to unfreeze it, but I haven’t had any problems since.

    1. My 12 hour quest took 18 hours anyway because it finished at midnight and I was sleeping then. Kind of disappointing as now it just looks like I’m being punished for being on my game and for living in the wrong timezone.

      1. I started straight away after the new part started, just had the game crash on my just after the first boss fight ended, spent all the hours in between being frustrated and constantly checking to see if the game had finally been updated. I’d have gladly swapped with you!
