  1. Is there more land expansion?


  2. Is this a glitch? Got to number 7 where you win 5 track pieces……in one game I got 12 and my other game I got 20……all straight pieces.


  3. Play Store update today appears to have fixed the freezing glitch when you “clean” your buildings!!! Not sure what else the update today fixed!!! 😀


    1. some still got it. at the bottom of the article you can see the only change.


      1. nod I only said that it appeared to resolve the freezing issue when cleaning buildings because I was able to successfully clean off all of mine without my game freezing and ultimately booting me out.


        1. I am no longer freezing, but one quarter of my game is like it is in another dimension. All characters associated with buildings in the area are under construction. When you store the building and then replace to get the character back, the entire area disappears and then you have to move and place a piece and the area returns but you don’t have the characters. The area also does not generate money. And if the garbage dump is placed in the area, the task complete does not work.
          Playable but frustrating.
          Finally have not had any plastic tasks since this started.

    I am now on day 12 of the glitchhalf my town doesn’t work so any active tasks for the monorail are all cramped in the right hand side. I am continually nagging EA (thanksem) but no patch.
    I’ve missed out on extra monorail tracks and doughnuts because of this.
    I also have multiple premium buildings which is really annoying except for Bart’s treehouse which is a nice decoration.

    On monorail cafe have I missed this?


    1. Monorail cafe will come soon so you didnt miss it


  5. Did the daily caps increase or decrease? I can’t seem to find the original post to compare


      1. Woo hoo!


  6. Conducter Homers Air out bitey changed to take bitey for a walk. Also you can place multiple pools.


  7. Does anyone have any idea when they will fix this game freezes glitch? Are they even aware of it?


  8. Wow. So many pointless changes. Why are they wasting time instead of fixing the real problems. More items we cant sell and no way to clear our inventories of crud we dont want. Way to go EA.


    1. they’ve made it so you don’t sell premium items cause they cost donuts and you get $ back. and most are limited time items that you can’t buy back.


      1. I understand that. I mean the other crud like easter egg piles and lovely benches. I have 80 castle walls and piles of junk I cant get rid of.


        1. And Springfield heights buildings still cant be stored weeks after reporting problem. Clearly EAs priorities are wrong.


          1. the storing is not the problem. they changed it cause there’s a glitch with disappearing, duplicating or levelling down buildings in SH.


  9. My favorite thing is that I can’t play because it freezes, glitches and crashes whenever I do something other than look at my screen. 🙂


  10. My favorite change is the pool’s appearance can now be customized. Maybe this means decos like the garbage pile and money mountain will eventually have the same kind of skin menu.


    1. I am hoping this will apply to the Heights buildings as well eventually…


  11. Appears that they still doesn’t fix the issue with the game freezing when you attempt to “clean” your buildings of the garbage neighbors put on them. :/
