  1. I really liked this event…..then I realized my “heights” is looking like a fancy house farm. As my friends can attest to, I am particular about the aesthetic of my town. Has anyone tried storing their heights buildings ? Does it effect your $$$? just asking 🙂 tap on peeps!


    1. Ive stored most of it.
      It suppose to give % but I havent checked and some says it does not add bonus.
      It does not generate income.


      1. Those buildings with bonus only gives xp bonus (as seen on the post regarding conformometer)


    2. I wish they’d allow us to use the various lower level skins for these buildings… the level 5 buildings are so tall, most of the level 2 or 3 buildings are perfect height tho for decorating a town. The first ones i’m maxing out to level 5 will be the mansions cuz they just give more stuff rather than become super tall!


  2. I noticed that tapping on the handshakes in my world does not give FPs any longer. Also, the mat permanently stays above LA Body Works even when I’ve sent everyone to work.


    1. you’ve to send fat tony to work to fix that

        How are we supposed tonsend fat tony to work when his job has been removed?


        1. Tony has been replaced by Snake


        2. I meant on any job sorry. Not sh specific


          1. But this is only a fix for the duration of the task, the yoga mat appears again as soon as Fat Tony is finished. Also Snake is glitchy, the yoga mat does not appear if only he is free to do the task (ie Fat Tony is doing something else and all others and making mats).


  3. I have noticed a Yoga mat glitch it says build mats (the icon over the building) even when I have all the peeps building away


    1. you’ve to send fat tony to work to fix that


      1. Tony is replaced by snake, so no solution.

    Would you please keep us updated about this big game crash glitch that the Gil update introduced? Multiple players (including me get bounced out to the Home Screen if we try to load the game. Allegedly it is hitting IOS users, all types of Apple products old or new. My iPhone4S has never had a game issue until this. Thanks!


    1. sure. let’s hope it gets fixed soon. no issue on android


  5. Do you know the source from which the report of the missing donuts glitch having been fixed came from? I logged into my game to check and my missing donuts have still not been returned. I’ll be contacting EA today.


    1. if you haven’t contacted ea to get the donuts back you need to contact them. the problem causing this has been solved though.


      1. Gotcha. I contacted EA after my above post, they said they are will have a resolution to my issue within 48hrs.


  6. The ice cream stuff has disappeared


    1. uninstall and reinstall being carefull to NOT tap the screen before it has downloaded all files
