  1. I can freely move buildings in Krustyland again, onto walking paths and off! Was this changed with this update, too?

    Hey LPN
    I don’t know if it was part of the update or if I just didn’t notice it before but R.O.S.A now appears on the list of characters in the town census at the Town Hall.
    Does this mean that she might be upgraded from a NPC to a playable character like the snow monster was? Or that the developers were going to make her playable but then changed their minds & forgot to take her off the list?
    What do the rumours say? Any news?


    1. They forgot to set the flag for her to not appear in the census probably


  3. Weird, so Other Springfield is now completely useless during this act? haha!!


    1. Yes!! and that sort of annoys me, because I used Other Springfield as my 24h-timer. Since I tap neighbours in shifts, it is hard to tell when the cycle starts over without it.


      1. Seems to me like its a mistake to have removed OS bears but now its kinda late


  4. Just wondered why all my friends no longer had tap-able buildings, so came here to ask and lo and behold you’ve already posted about it. Thanks as ever team.


  5. How come on the Maggie mini game I keep tapping or holding on her and it doesn’t do anything, I don’t win and I have to wait another 16 hours?:(


    1. Tap on the building, not on Maggie.
