What Changed With the Wild West Update? (April 19th)

The Wild West event was just released. 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.

The app icon and the splash screen were changed to new ones for the event.

  1. Just started. I cant seem to place the new Town Plaza down any where. I have simpson house, flanders, brown house, quickiemart, cletus farm. Bought extra land too. Its always red and wont let me put it anywhere…


    1. Thats odd. Check if nothing is inside of that squares. Even a bush can obstruct placemenent

    My favorite new feature is the icon for animated jobs.


  3. I’m having issues on my kindle since the Wild west download. I keep getting booted when I try and complete any of the tasks. Can anyone point out some help? Appreciate it!


  4. Big fan of the new character finder setup. Gone are the days of combing through town looking for that one last character with a thumbs up over his or her head whom I somehow missed. Good riddance to that.

    Another thing I’ve noticed is that, when Krustylanders are ready to give their payout, the ticket logo floating above them now appears off-center, rather than directly overhead. I can’t imagine why they felt the need to tinker with that.

    Disappointed that they didn’t open up the land above Springfield heights. Would have been perfect for the desert area. Or some place even farther to the west. I figure they’re gonna open it up eventually…was just hoping to not have to wait longer. And what gives with not being able to out two roads alongside each other anymore? Now I can’t have any highways. Hoping this will be fixed.


  6. I also noticed that “eat questionable sushi” task is no longer default hour task for characters; as there is some weird (active character) tasks that are there instead. I was using that bonus xp glitch to double up on earnings and now it’s gone….:(


    1. that’s what we meant by “The ability to send multiple characters on jobs till a quest requiring them is completed by completing other jobs was removed.”

    You can’t place Springfield gorge on dirt. Unbelievable!

    2. You can’t place much of anything on the dirt, apart from the new event content. And even when you can, it looks bad thanks to that fringe of grass around the edge. I was really looking forward to putting dirt under that useless Martian habitat; and unlike the gorge, I actually could. But now I can barely tell the difference!


  8. In need of help

    I got stuck on the quest “Once upon a time in sprigfield part 8.” Where I schoild “unlock general store day 1 prizes”

    I unlocked both the cactus rock and the hitched horse but the quest doesn’t finish.

    Tried going to friendstown, Krustyland, uninstalling/reinstalling the app and storing the horse and the cactus rock. But nothing works…


  9. Now Kang and Kodos have their own group, it’s time for the appearance of Serak The Preparer.

  10. Oh boy, are they ever going to fix the stupid 3h Narobics job on top of some of the ladies’ task lists?
