  • Just a minor nitpick, Itchy's Minefield is 100 Donuts in the Shop; not 150.
    Trying to control the horizontal & the vertical. Do not adjust your TV.
  • Yep makes it easier to plan out ahead of time and quick question. Are the costs for the 4th of July stuff available or are they unknown?

    If EA wants more people to play it needs more of its items to be permanently in the shop. That's not to say I don't want new items. But the number of Premium items, and the price of them, is extortionate, especially since EA is clearly dragging the bottom of the barrel for new characters and prefers to make us pay for skins.

    Also, I do not have a sense of entitlement to free stuff.

    Wait, I do. Everybody likes free stuff. It's not fair to say you don't like free stuff.

    I just don't think it's fair for EA to call this game free, because even though you can get donuts free, the price of the items in comparison to the donuts you can get for the amount of work you must do for them is way too high.

    Especially when previously free characters become premium.

    Today in my Vault I got the Butterfly Tent! What great timing! There's now one in my zoo so that visitors to the butterfly gardens can observe the butterflies close up.
