  1. My Kang and Kodos no longer go to their Victorian Saucer when they do their 16 hrs Chortle. Anyone else having the same issue? I hope they change it back.


    • This was changed because not everyone has the victorian ufo. There is a known visual issue with this task, overlapping. Dont think they will change it back.


  2. Burns doesn’t work in my giant snow globe in either Ebenezer or Witch skin unless I place the globe on bare land with nothing behind it.
    Presently I’m keeping monorail track behind mine so I’ll have to live with not seeing Burns animation….whatever …he’s usually doing laps in the money pool anyway!
    It’s great to have a decent animation for SLH too


    • Why isnt WhiteWitch Burns earning holly/mistletoe in your town? One of the reasons I got him. Only him and Sophie earns event currency independently from the winter buildings. Just asking 🙂


    • Yes Burns is earning event currency now…I was thinking more after the event….
      I haven’t tried storing yet….Burns is on 12 hr mistletoe job….but I will try that later and let you know.


    • I tried storing Burns and the globe but it seems to be monorail that’s the problem.
      Storing had no effect so I tried placing the globe in a blank area and placing a few items behind it to see if Burns is affected. Nothing affected Burns animation except monorail (placed just behind globe).
      In the error Burns appears to be behind the globe instead of grouching on the roof….I can just see his arm.
      I guess it’ll be fixed eventually.
      Can I be a game tester for EA!


  3. What’s the update on the Gil Starter Pak? I noticed a lot of posts saying people weren’t getting it. It never opened for me. I got the dialogue about Homer dropping donuts into a pit (his stomach) and I got the snow globe offer. Is the starter Pak linked to opening the Better Not Cry quest line? Thanks.


      • Okay, thanks for clarifying the status – I wasn’t sure if it was just a weird glitch in my town. I hope they fix it. Maybe it’ll be a little upcoming surprise thing, like adding back the Act 1 craftables and doubling the present count. It would be a nice surprise for Christmas Day evening or New Year’s Eve. 🙂


  4. Sorry for going off subject, but when do u think they will offer the donut special?

    I hope they are doing it again this year, I was planning to get the boat load. 🙂
