The tie-in for the 1 hour special episode that aired last Sunday, “The Great Phatsby”, has been released!

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, the splash screen and the friend visit’s icon were changed back to normal.

The whole game was changed back to normal.

Snow was removed.

The town center was set back to normal.

The copyright year was changed from 2016 to 2017.

The Sequence Fountains are back in sync.


The caps for Springfield Heights was raised from 200 to 300, by adding new 8 hour job slots that unlock the new caps (requires Springfield Heights Pt. 10 to be started).

2 new column of land were added on Springfield Heights.

*Bramble Hedge and Biohazard Wall orientation was changed back.


Homer’s job “Prove He’s Not a Witch” at the Dunking Device no longer freezes him (due to the water no longer being freezing).

  1. I can’t get a daily task done since the update. It’s the one you need to tap the ballons at krustyland. Does any of you know of it or how to fix it? Today it’s the second day that pass and I can’t get the task done, although I completed it already. :-/


    1. it seems to be broken sometimes, did you try tapping go to from the daily c. screen?


    2. What is the error message? Have you stored SideShowYou and placed it again?


  2. Is there a reason why the update requires the game to see my pictures and files? Without updating I can’t even play the game anymore

    Liked by 1 person

    1. it does so it can update the files to the non-snow look i guess


  3. Is there any information of new future items for Springfield Heights? I’m like 70 mil away from 1 billion

    1. That was changed one or two months ago


  6. Does the gill deal come with the character or a bonus points


    1. Gil deal comes with all you see in image: jay g’s mansion, jay g, goosius, jay g’s pool (2.25% bonus in the pool)

        I haven’t seen Goosius since I placed him…little guy is somewhere

  7. I would like to be able to buy an unlimited amount of land in Springfield!! Why not EA ??!!


    1. EA would have to allocate an infinitive number of servers to do that. That won’t happen.


      1. I don’t think so…


  8. I’m glad, there is new land. The Gill deal needs three pieces of land.
