    The back of? No idea. But I am happy to see the front of Boobarella.

    Quality of Life?

    I would say it's a topssup between the IRS building and the Job center for mass-tasking

    It's kind of negated because they've been furiously adding taskable characters since. They need to implement that mass collect button. It takes 10-15 minutes to collect from 250+ characters.
  • Yup, as our towns get increasingly larger, it takes WAY more time to do collections now than it did a year or two ago. Add to that the necessity of running long events and you end up with a game that used to be fun to thinker with but now is becoming a bona-fide chore. How about (as someone suggested) an IRS agent or drone (or several of them) that wander the town collecting money FOR us (like real IRS agents) and that require no player controls. I personally would pay donuts for that option - sort of a "five donuts cost per week" or something similar that would also be fair to newer players. Just sayin'....... :wink:

    I'm far too lazy to send characters without the Job Centre >.<
  • Group selection tool, by far.

    Most definitely the Area Selection Tool is the greatest addition to the game.

    I can collect all the money. I can assign all the jobs. But if I had to individually move the thousands of pieces I just relocated the other day, I'd have given up and left it as is.

    Plus it's one of the few times I ever felt HEARD and listened to, in my whole life. Thanks again, EA

  • I didn't live through it, but I heard that you previously had to manually find characters in town to task them (ie no task icon on the top left of screen). That must have been the worst. For me personally, the IRS was the game changer.

    Yes, it use to be like that and I would say that is one of the best added features to the game.

    I'd also say the ability to go from one friends town to another, via an arrow, was a nice added feature. We use to have to go into a friends town, collect, go back to the friends page, and then enter another town.

    This is the reason early on I just sent people on 24 hour tasks. It was such a hassle to find everyone and reassign them more often.

    I never understood why people cut off words and take a couple letters to words and jam them together. Like what the hell... do I look like da vinci lol
  • 1. Doughnuts farm
    2. Area select
    3. Job center
    4. Minigames
    5. IRS (although it's enough anymore, "collect all" is desperately needed)

    How did we even play early on? I have become so spoiled with the new additions. Now they just need to deal with the inventory. I would be willing to wait for a collect all function just to have a functional inventory.
  • It got to be IRS building for me. My fingers are almost developing painful joints from the per building taps in the past. The IRS is really a life saver
  • This one is a toughie.. I mean the IRS and the Job tasks things were pretty cool... but that Golden Easter Egg I worked so hard for changed my life.

    My vote.. the Easter Egg, it's the only reason the game is alive today IMO. :|

    Definitely between the two. Though they charge you for using the unemployment office, tapping 100+ characters and sending them on a task gets tiring. But the irs building clears jobs and taxes.

    I remember that- most of my time spent was going across town finding the last few, which was almost a memory test, and the town edit wasnt what it is now so it was really an exercise in patience. Then I left for a few weeks and suddenly the find icon was there and it was so much easier..
