EA has just released a new DLC for the 2016 Valentine’s Day event. As most of you know by now, every update not only brings new content but also changes to many other aspects of the game. From prices to appearance, task lengths to requirements, any part of the game is subject to change and many changes affect every player. Follow us right after the jump for the list of all of the changes.
Update: Two patches were released 2 days later.

Visibility requirement for Retirement Castle was changed to level 9 instead of level 16.


Fixed a bug not recognising Sideshow You plays in the Daily Challenges.

Cletus’ Delouse the Younguns job now requires Should Have Had A Bath to not be active.


The quest parts of Tuxedo Krusty’s All Dressed Up Pt. 3 and 4 names, mistakenly switched, were fixed.


Fixed a glitch with Daily Challenges’ Power Walk and Delouse the Younguns not working.


Some Daily Challenges quests were disabled: Sugar Rush Pt. 1 and 2, Just the Basics, Wait a Sec, Dailight Robbery, Four Finger Discount, Toy May Contain Lead Pt. 1 and 2, Twice the Calories, Ten Pounds, Double Down, Clowned Table, It’s Not a Library Pt. 1 and 2, Nerd Who Has Everything, Me, Myself and I, Nostalgia Used to Be Better, I See What You Did There, Beefed Up and Overcompensating.

    I sent Grampa on a ‘defy gravity’ task and it’s at King Homer’s Skyscraper – which is now invisible. I logged out and back in and the skyscraper was back but when I tapped it the task for Grampa showed up and the skyscraper vanished again.


    1. It’s weird. didnt have that happen. try to store the skyscrapper and it’ll use the retirement castle instad


  2. They didn’t give us any time to exploit that glitch that I didn’t even know about. d’oh. lol.

    FYI, Mona Simpson now added to “Oldies” List and Becky added to “More Oddballs” list


    1. new characters are added there cause they’re new. no need to add the changes. if they changed location yes.

    Were Private Islands a limited time item? I bought only one (of three max) and then shortly after, The Springfield Heights menu disappeared and the Private Island with it. From the recent updates, it sounds like they are still intended to be in the game. I’ve finished the rest of SH and need to put some scrolls to use.


    1. Open the arrow menu and you’ll see all the expanded menu including sh

        Thanks, that did it! Not sure why I never knew about the expanded menu


        1. oh it’s not just you maaaaany users don’t know even though it must be obvious since there’s an arrow there lol


  5. What is the change “Retirement Castle now requires level 9 instead of level 16”? My level 13 game still says that it requires level 16.


    1. seems like it’s the visibility requirement to show up on shop as buyable after. sorry
