  1. This is off topic,but does Money Mountain have different facades (level 1 to 11) that i can switch to? If so i’m not able to change it.


  2. What unfortunately not changed:
    I still suffer on the bug, that the game redownloads completely twice every day. So on iPhone I have since weeks no chance to play the game (limited download volume). I hoped so much, that EA is going to fix this issue, but they did not. Also no reaction on my issue-request, nor in their threads.
    I´m totally frustrated to miss the xmas-event


  3. The North Pole Station glitches after placing the extension. You have to move it off centre by one square (West ofr South, depending the orientation of the station)
    If you don’t do that, you see a three part train, which can’t drive. You get the warning that you have to add at least seven pieces of monorail track.
