  1. The green seems very ‘green’ now it’s back! Very glad to see that Maggie’s task is still active now the forced update has clicked in. Hope that means I can complete the storyline and get the Maggie mini-quest now that seems to be a permanent feature.


  2. Guys, I had over 1k donuts and they disappeared with the update! Anyone else got this problem? What can I do? 😔


  3. Miss Botz doesn’t appear in the character finder icon.
    I’ve also had a long term glitch where I reach 5000 on the first monorail track building task. I have to go to KL to get the popup saying I achieved the first piece of track. After that everything works well..i.e. it only happens on the first piece. Anyone else have this?
    It’s possible it was fixed in this update because I did make track yesterday, before winter’s removal.


  4. “Incomplete Winter 2015 buildings now shows the skin select.”

    I don’t see this. My first level snowman now pays out and can be stored, but I don’t see any skin selection. Maybe you must have more than 1 level? I take it that you don’t get all 5 levels now…?
