Monorail Takedown is here… but not as you expected!

EA has released, for both iOs and Android, the Monorail Takedown update, but all is not well. People from EA Forum are reporting Level 57, Quimby Pool and IRS content missing! If you have the problem, EA has to solve it for you. If you don’t have it, it’s safe to update.

If your Rail Yard prizes goes off the screen and is like 10000/5000 do the following: Go to krustyland (or friend towns screen) and back and it should fix itself and give you the prizes.

  1. I have noticed if I go into my town but do not collect the cash from my buildings but then go into my friends towns and back to my town all the cash sums have disappeared and the time clock on the buildings has reset. I therefore lost all the cash sums as well as a boardwalk section I was buying. Also after collecting the 70000 blueprints I did not get my last monorail pieces until I went into Krustyland and then back to my town. I assume this is part of the problems. Is there any news when this will be sorted.

    1. Just applied the Play Store update and then the in-game update. My game is stable and all lvl. 57 content is there but I as well do not have the IRS content, I wonder if that’s what was causing the issues in the take-down update and they yanked it from the take-down update before re-adding the update to the Play Store.

        1. I thought that the addition of the IRS building content was part of the take-down update? That’s what it says in these posts:

          Am I reading those posts wrong?

          Regardless, the take-down update is applied and my game is running stably with no game content loss.

  4. Craaaaaaaap… I updated as soon as it came out and have been playing since. Went over 15,000 blueprints and didn’t get the 15k two track pieces, but reading the tip here about going to Krustyland and back gave me the pieces. I’m going to keep playing and hope everything turns out well. In order to finish the five bonus track piece quests in the next 5 days, I’m going to have to keep playing.

  5. To my 53 friends who have already updated, I hope you understand why I haven’t visited your town since the update! As soon as EA gets this worked out, I’ll update too and start tapping in your town again. Thanks for understanding and not dropping me (I hope!). In the meantime, 3 of my friends have stopped playing, one for 2 weeks now. So that leaves me with only 44 friends to visit until this gets worked out. 😞

      1. As I said already I had already updated etc and realised something was wrong. Wish I had waited now but I wanted to see what was new in the game and hadn’t checked here first.

        I’ve not contacted EA yet as I’m still holding out for a fix/patch.

        2 of the item missing were limited time as well so I really want them back as I’m a completion and I have every item that has ever been released into the game and not having these will ruin it for me. There might even be other stuff missing too but I’ve only looked at what came into the game during the monorail event.

        Can EA restore my town to how it was yesterday afternoon before the update happened?

  9. I updated prior to reading this… Though I haven’t noticed anything missing etc., I am having trouble completing Real Estate Mogul Pt. 5. I’ve surpassed One Billion real estate and should have been rewarded with Billionaire Haven but it’s not do that. The icon is still in the taskbook and clicking it shows the first part of the quest complete, but the second part (Place Billionaire Haven) still shows 0/1 with no button to press to place it. EA is really going downhill. TSTO is getting as bad as Family Guy Quest for Stuff with all the crashes and problems….

When I saw handshakes on my buildings instead of garbage fumes, I went to the friend’s town and saw that they had “newer content” than I and an update was needed. I DID NOT update, but came here instead! Whew! Moral of the story: do not update until you check TSTOtopix first! Thank you one and all of the TSTOtopi Team!
