  • EA Help suggested me to post my concern on EA official forum as they are not authorized to make changes in it.
    As the announcement of a new series, Mr Burns spends time in his summer house. During the dialogue with Smithers he says insulting and derogatory phrases against gays. Also was used curse word "педик" (eng. "fagot"). After he points to the ambiguity of this word, but it is not.
    I am deeply outraged by this curse and homophobia in the Russian version of the game.

    Not quite sure how to respond. First, in case you’re not aware, while this may be TSTO’s “official” forum, no one here works for or represents EA; in other words, no one here can make changes to the game. We’re just users.

    Second, there have prior reports of poor translations with the game’s dialog, although I don’t recall any instances where they were as unfortunately egregious and offensive as the case you describe. The English language version of the text employed the word “gay” (which has multiple meanings) to achieve a certain comedic effect (although it’s a bit of stale joke); even with the best of translators, the job can be problematic when words have multiple meanings, and I kinda doubt that EA is using top-of-the-line translators. It sounds as though the translator in this instance completely botched the job.

    Yeah, some of the lower-level EA help staff are fond of telling this to complainants. It’s simply not true.

  • I, and it appears many other users, are unable to use the new 8hr taskings for SH resources. I've tried Duffman, Sea Captain, and S. Chalmers and each time will get the "Requirements not Met" error message. Can this be hot patched? Pretty great idea getting rid of the constant grind in favor of a longer task, would be a shame if a lot of us can't use it.

    If you look closer, you will notice that it takes quite a number of the other items that you make before you can use these characters. Or if your impatient, you can just spend the donuts to speed up the process.

  • Thanks Ickabod, but I'm referring to characters who I've already unlocked for those tasks.
  • You'll have to contact EA directly to get this fixed. It seems to be an issue for many players.

    You seem to be mis-remembering. The task length associated with the Springfield Dump is 30 seconds, 1 hour for the Metal Depot, 2 for the Plastic Depot, and 3 for the Glass Depot.

  • My wife and I started bout the same time. We both started the monorail quests. We both got the dump and the quest kept going for me but it stopped for her so now im almost done and she only has the dump wth happened to her game.

    Have you consulted the walkthrough to try and pinpoint the problem?

    I am having the same issue. I got through the Part to make others pick up trash (A Rail of One City 5), but then it stopped. I never got the Rail yard. If your wife finds the solution, please let me know. I will do the same if I get it.
  • I put the Simpsons Future home in storage and it disappeared. Not in any of the categories. Odd.

    You need to look through the whole inventory, not any of the categories. Hope you manage to find it.
