    Now, discuss the actual game. Thankyou.

    There is not a chance in hell that was a joke. Nice try though.

    Out of curiosity, is this the first time homer hasn't been on the splash screen?

    No, I think he's been off the splash screen a few times. I think the first was with the Terwilligers event in 2015 and the second time during last year's Halloween event.
  • Hibbert is way too skinny in the splash screen. These people don't even know the Simpsons anymore.
  • Cool. Prizes, characters and quests.

    But no increase to the item limit so adding new bits becomes more and more difficult.

    First you reckon in the ‘once upon a time’ thread that lack of forum activity is due to toxicity rather than players growing bored, now you’re telling everyone how they should be interpreting one of the more toxic comments I’ve seen in my time here.

    A bit of reasoned argument wouldn’t go astray.

  • My problem as well. Hopefully someone can help
  • Well I should finish act 1 about 7PM tonight so just a wee bit behind. Not so bad.

    Go some more time next week and so should have my game back up.
  • Act 2 looks boring in prizes. Wish there were more to design with. :(
    TOUK is the best also have you considered Nuking

    I guess its EA's way around not upping the item limit. Another building for future Springfield and another type of crowd that'll probably work at the school or in a capital city/Washington area.
  • This might be the first time since the very beginning of the game, that I will not be able to finish the quests in time.

    This is the first time that I couldn’t care less if I didn’t. Boring event, boring prize track, boring store. Zzzzzzzzz.

    If you've been playing since the start of the game then doing a few donut rushes shouldn't be a problem.

    Not really necessary though. You just have to go back to playing the way you used to.

  • If you've been playing since the start of the game then doing a few donut rushes shouldn't be a problem

    Easy for people who have been playing for the last decade, newer players would find this event almost impossible.
  • I have a town I started in November. Was able to easily rush when needed and get all the premiums offered too. You just have to get your bonus up and farm donuts.

    I had 25 left to get to get the token on Friday.
    The first 4hrs I left a few on Act 1 and the rest on 2 and the same for a second 4hrs which I will be able to get today.
    Part 5 will be done after event.

    Yes, it is a boring event, but I'll take whatever prizes I can get, and maybe if there's anything else that I like.
    Got two Old Gray Mares to go in habitats in my zoo and Vesuvius Pizza to go near race track in my zoo for donuts from the Vault.

  • When acts start at 11.30 pm my time zone (and about to go,if not already in bed, with these increased requirements just behind the ball all the way through. I had to donut part 1 to finish in time, there is no way I can collect every 4 hours (EA some people who love games DO have lives!).

    Complaints that people "have lives" and cannot finish?

    Wow! Just like the old days! EA's BACK!! /sarc

    I lol’d at this too. Memories of checking the event calendar and wrestling over whether I should set my alarm clock to get that extra collection in.

    What do you mean by "in time"?

    Act 1 didn't need to be completed before Act 2 started.
  • True, but the same characters in Act 1 are also in Act 2, and if you didn't finish 1 in time then you might have a problem with 2 as well, maybe even 3 or 4.
    And rather than keeping it short while going after following Acts, then rushing previous Act's as you get near the end of the event.

    I can understand why someone would rush the Act's sooner rather than later, though you might save on donuts if you do it later.

    I got the token, so Part 5 is started but I'm not going to do Act 1 anymore just Act 2.

    If this was a major event, when it finishes, that's it, no more, no chance to finish the Part you were on.
    But this is not a major event, it is 4 mini's stuck together, (A major mini event if you will), and in mini's you can finish the Part you were on after the event is over.

    Now I have had this with the last 2 Acts of a major mini before, it's quite possible that I may get it with 3 or even all 4 this time.

    The event had finished and I had the final part of the last 2 Act's to get, I had the characters evenly spread out between the 2 and finished them together, as I was unsure if I did one of them complete would the other one stay active.
