  1. Why does my space ship always gets caught in fire when I try to launch it?


  2. Server went down in the middle of collecting on my town. Had the five free donuts for completing homers mission, then they were gone, as well as some of the money I’d collected. Now I just started the launch the rocket mission/ 12 hours, and I see it’s not on the platform. Is it supposed to be? I’ve been getting tons of server down error messages the last week, too, so I’ve no idea what is supposed to be happening. BOO URNS. (Eta, AWESOME, now the WordPress site won’t even take my comments. So much for improving a crap day.)


    1. try storing it and place it again. if that doesn’t work contact ea following the istructions in the link below the banner


  3. Why can’t I tap on baby Maggie when I find her? Loosing donuts 😦


    1. Tap on the building instead of her


  4. just debris and one donut from cleaning debris that’s all, maggi can’t always find or tap. Is maggi mini game permanent too.


  5. I didnt get this one i dont understand


  6. I’m not american or live in america, but I love the space shuttle so instead of getting the carbon rod I got the more expensive shuttle, I’ve just placed it and realized that today/yesterday (depending on where you live) is the anniversary of the Challenger accident. Which makes me feel a little sad. 😦


  7. The rocket launch game will now suck if we might have to wait 48 hours for some debris. (1 in 4 chance, 12 hour wait each try.)


    1. you realize it’s permanent right?


      1. Is it? I thought we weren’t sure until the event was over…

        Well, I don’t like having one of the tries wasted and having to wait another 12 hours, being rewarded nothing. Thankfully I’ve always found Maggie, but I feel like that would be just as disappointing to have to wait 16 more hours. (I had to wait 40 hours once (my own mistake) and that lost me the chance at 3 donuts, and yes that sucked a bit.)

        I’m only a little impatient. There’s so much waiting as it is in this game that I don’t revel in the wasted chances.

    Has anyone got anything other than debris from the rocket launch yet?


    1. yes 4 random debris or Kang Topiary or Hail Ants Sign or Mini Nuclear Warhead


      1. I’ve gotten a Hail Ants Sign and a Kang Topiary


    2. Tapatapatapa 01/28/2016 — 23:38

      I’ve got 2 x Hail Ants signs after I got debris on the first attempt, which I think everyone gets….but I have not done many launches because I like having the rocket visible on the launch pad.
      I wouldn’t mind an army of Kangs and Kodos’s. I got several on a spinning wheel once and they pass adequately for actual aliens (not bushes) in my alien compound.


      1. yes first time it’s always debris


    3. Ive got debris three or so times and hail ants just once.
