  1. My game has become incredible slow. Does anybody else have the same problem?


    1. Depends on how many items you have in your town and how much free space your device has.
      Can also depend on how many animated tasks you have activated and how many NPCs you have roaming the streets.

      Usually clearing cache, freeing up space, storing every NPC and assigning everyone indoor, non visable tasks will reduce lagging.


      1. Thank you. I am sure it’s because I have to many items. I have stored some already and it helps a bit.
        The problem came with the update. Is there any chance there will be a fix for this? It would be a shame if I have to redesign everything.


        1. Not really 😦 maybe a new device with better capabilities, though I have no clue which device is the optimal one for this game. The app is optimised for iPhone6, I think, but some androids works better, imo.


  2. We are really getting screwed by these buildings continually being reset every time we enter our games. Loosing a ton of income !! EA fix this !!

    Anyone noticed that blue houses are not creating income? Clock sets at 8 hours each log in. Other buildings are too.

        You see it happening too?


        1. Yes. Probably connected to the unreleased/activated IRS.
          When you open the game, if you want to collect rents (you might want to leave them for your neighbours) do it right away. If you go to KL or the friendscreen it will be gone when you return.
          This also resets SqP enterance – no tile rewarded, moonbounce and Open Air Stage, at least in my game.


    1. Yup !! Big time !! A lot of my buildings are resetting every time I open my game !! EA has got to be aware of this major issue !!
      Yes ??!! The iOS Apple version.. Makes it real hard to build up funds !! 😧😳


  4. You know ,there may not be a so called “fix” or update coming in the near future..
    Everybody should just go for it and do the best that they can..
    It seems most of the issues are on iPhones ,.. Yes ??


    1. some android users got it too. those that updated immediatly. the server was completely haywire and probably didn’t save properly


      1. Wacky server(s) would explain a lot for sure..
        I’ve been playing this game since Oct. 2012 and I thought I’d seen it all ,apparently not !!
        Btw , thanks for all your post(s) , they are extremely informative ! 😊

  5. For whatever reason the update September 17 isn’t showing up on the apple app update.


      1. Oh. Okay. Thanks. Still haven’t downloaded the update. In fact, haven’t played the game since the update was posted to the App Store. Still waiting for fix. I hope I’m not missing anything. 😐


        1. Not missing much, nothing that isnt permanent.

          1. I eventually broke down and updated the game. I didn’t get auto level up for one account but did for another account and the games are played on two separate devices. Have you heard anybody else not getting auto level up to 58?


            1. did you get a bonus level on the non-auto level up before?


              1. I don’t know. Probably. Before level 58 was released – now that I think about it.


            2. You need to complete the xp’s in order to level up 😎


            3. Yes. It has occured with all lvl above 55 that some have lost xp and not auto level up despite having a pink bar before the update 😦

              1. Thanks Minicha.
