What Changed With the Destination Springfield Takedown and Server Updates? (March 7th)

The takedown update for the event has been released as a store update, removing the event. A second update, server side, removed the bugged Tourists Bundle for the moment. 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.
A new teaser description was also added:
The Osaka Flu has been cured and all but the most romanced (or kidnapped) of tourists have left Springfield for home. While Quimby demands FEMA money to clean up after the flood of foreigners, you’re free to wonder what will be next for your town. Military misfires? A covert convention? Or maybe a visit from a fake French fop? Stay tuned for new characters, buildings and stories coming soon.

The splash screen and the app icon were changed back to normal.

The ambience music was changed back to normal.

The land zone was moved back to normal.

The Tourists Bundle was added to the store, however it’s text is missing.

    Did the update and now have a string of tasks that seem to be old ones…
    Marge stock maps
    Kumiko pose for photos
    Mrs Muntz exchange for sky credits
    Should I ignore them?


    1. Marge & Mrs Muntz are a one-off, no thing. Sailor Kumiko seems to be an unrelated task with CBG, maybe just to give us something to do. It’s kind of cool & worth doing.
