So I hear EA is currently having issues with the server, but I did what they told me to do (logout and log back in), and I keep getting the message:
Welcome to Origin, marissaro
You are currently on Level 4 Springfield already on this device (view)
Is this your springfield? Yes/No
It's not my Springfield, I'm on level 18 and would absolutely scream if I lost all that "wasteless" but addicting time on this game.
I am on on level 16 and have been prompted in the Marge's bad Dream mission to build Moe's Tavern however when I go to select it, it isn't available. I do not think I have been prompted to do the Al Coholic here Pt 1; mission.
Not getting parts of tasks or being told to build something but not being able to isn't a flaw or a problem with the system, it's a problem with the players individual game play.
In the beginning, and even up to level 22 there are certain tasks that must be done in order build buildings.
If a character tells you to build a building, and you can't but are at the right level or above, on the next completion of all your tasks let your characters walk around a bit OR if you have game suggested tasks in your task book, do them.
Character X may tell you to build something but and interaction between Character Y and Character Z with a completed task by Character Y that will let you build something.
Most of the low level character tasks revolve around Homer and Lisa being free at the same time and Homer completing a task. Also be mindful of the number of times you must do something, like collect bribes at the race track 3 times, etc.
If you don't have all the characters do all the tasks for the number of times, you will continue to level but not get promted to build things.
Right now only after the highest level can you sort of ignore tasks, after you have built the apartment, although there is a cute story line about Flander's, the principal and the teacher.
