    It's too big to hide well. Might have to keep it out in a design.

    i just slapped each and every float back to back and stuck them behind some buildings so theyre looking like theyre about the same size, still looks like ****, but im not that big of a floatfan myself
  • The school bus was premium.... so does that mean Otto will now be free?
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.
  • My Homerpalooza crowds are swaying much much faster now. They must be cold. :D

    noticed it too, but i thought they were lagging before on my phone xD
  • [*]The whole game was changed to winter theme, and a winter wind blows now as ambience sound.

    It's currently 29 F outside with the wind up to 20 mph.

    I usually turn down the sfx sounds during the winter event because I don't want to hear the wind blowing in the game. Otherwise it makes me feel like there's some massive draught inside.
  • I don’t understand. I don’t have an update. I don’t have any snow. I’ve checked the App Store and nothing.
  • Any place where I can see the content of the update? (to know where I can spend my donuts).
    The Wikisimpsons page in "The Invasion Before Christmas" section just lists the same items as in the "A Rigellian Christmas Promo" expansion.

    I think LPN will probably be working on it today. The update dropped very late in Europe last night so he needed sleep before doing the page.
