Deep Space Homer: Glitches [FIXED]

Glitches are happening in this update, one is a good glitch, the others… not so much. Find out right after the jump how they can affect your town.
TSTO_Splash_Screen
Update: All glitches were fixed in the January 28th update, including the good one.

The first glitch is linked with completing Pt. 3 of the main questline: unlocking the Shuttle Hangar.
Hangar
Unfortunatly some users find out that the hangar was never awarded to them. This glitch is bad as you can’t complete the event without it and you can’t progress. The only ones that can fix this are EA’s customer service. Contact them direclty by clicking here.


The second glitch is linked with completing the main part of the questline and getting the final prize: the Rocket Launch Pad “upgrade”, that consists of the actual rocket.DSH RLPUpgrade
Sometimes the prize is not awarded and the rocket is missing so Homer can’t launch it. Be sure that Quimby is always free for this. If freeing Quimby or storing the Rocket Launch Pad (and trying the other buildings from this event too) doesn’t trigger anything, you have to contact EA directly by clicking here.


The third glitch is that you can only have one set of this debris from the Rocket launch.
debris03


The final glitch is a great glitch. Due to a flaw in programming, if you store the rocket that failed to launch, its timer will reset and you’ll be able to launch it immediatly. Repeat anytime you want. No need to wait for 12 hours anymore!Rocket
If you store the rocket, you can also buy another empty stand in the store too for free!


If we have any info on this issues, we’ll update this post or make a new one, in case of update, as soon as we get them. Join us next time for any news on this event, happy tapping!

  2. It seems they fixed the glich? I stored the launch pad like a milion times but it only crashes and burn’s. Also what in your opinion is the best way to earn experience ?buying and selling blood trucks or something else?Thanks

    1. Blood trucks yes. Also if you have donuts the carbon rod monument has the best donuts/bonus ratio

  3. Frustrated!! I’ve contacted EA 3 times and they can’t seem to solve my missing rocket dilemma? I’ve tried storing the launch pad as well as the NARA building and the hanger but my rocket will not appear. The task for Hommer to launch it is in my task list but I can’t do it without the rocket….rather annoyed with EA. Last tech told me my issue needed to be referred to a specialist team and they would be in touch….

    2. It has been quite a while since I didn’t even realize how long it has been since the last update until I read your comment. There has been so many other updates and land expansions the levels never even crossed my mind.

  4. I have the glitch where I’m “awarded” debris but it never shows in the inventory. I couldn’t care less as I can’t imagine why they think I would WANT junk that’s only good for having Homer and Lisa get rid of it. This event is pointless, I hope it ends soon and they move on to something more interesting. I don’t know the exact number of days, but we must be getting close to breaking the record for longest wait between levels, if we haven’t already.

    1. cause there’s a chance for donuts in the debris

    2. also the record still stands between level 20 (release of game) and 21

      1. What is that chance? I’d prefer it if they’d just give us a one-in-whatever chance of winning a donut, like the Krustyland mini game does.

      2. Well, right, not counting that. The longest gap I can remember is roughly two and a half months, between Levels 38 and 39.

    Also the debris glitch. First set is awarded, but each set awarded after, never shows in inventory.

    1. I just checked my inventory count and I wasn’t awarded the second debris either. Do we know if it will award it if you have zero debris in inventory before collecting the rocket prize? I have at least 20 of each type stored, didn’t really want to dump them to find out.

      1. Its a bug i hope they fix its annoying as hell. As long as you have one set from the rocket out or inventory you wont get more

        1. That means if you place all of your debris and have Lisa or Homer clean it up, you can get more again?

            1. Just tried it – it doesn’t matter what you do with your first set of debris, you won’t get a second set. I placed and cleaned all 4 pieces of debris (even got a donut in the process), launched a second time, came back to get debris again 12 hours later, but there is no debris to be found. Well, at least I get to successfully launch every 12 hours due to the other glitch, so I won’t complain – I only really care for the mini nuclear warhead anyway, even though another one or two donuts through debris would have been nice.

    I had the glitch of the Hangar. Solved freeing every character that could have any missions there, and tried to start de Milhouse mission. It opened my inventory with the hangar there, even tough it wasn’t there before.

    If your launcher fails, jus store it, place it back and launch it again until it shoots for the stars.. It works.
