Ideas for the game (not another character/building request thread)

Yes to all three. :mrgreen: I'd love to see them in the game, especially the character list!

    Yes especially the last one! Also I would like a soundboard implemented, I know thats unrealistic but I love some of the sounds in the game and I would love to keep clicking them over and over again without trouble :p

    I have a pretty brilliant idea for the game that could drastically change the interest of users

    Have a donut reward system for completing combinations of tasks at the same time.
    Example: task "Simpsons Go To Church" - 1 Donut - send all the Simpsons to Church with Reverand Lovejoy ON A SUNDAY

    You could even have no descriptions for what the tasks are so it will be more of a challenge decipher to figure out which combination of character tasks on which day/time need to happening in order to complete the challenge. Just have them named something to vaguely allure to what the challenge might entail. I think these should be donut based reward instead of cash because some of them will be very challenging to get the time & day and combination just right. Which will make people want to play the game more interactively instead of just "farming" constantly. Could open the door for tie ins to TV episodes as well. have certain characters mimik what they are doing in the show live each week



    EA, if you read this idea, and like it. let me know, i'd love to contribute more to the game if I can

    Agreed! Especially the 360 option... I have a huge park built but benches on only 2 sides 'cause it looks stupid with benches facing a wall.

    I, personally, would love 'walking' paths, like the cement/concrete option only more narrow... I'm a bit of a perfectionist and hate having a house or store in the middle of grass with their walkways in the middle of nowhere. I always push buildings right up to the street "level" which, 1) leaves unused space behind all buildings and 2) makes for pretty vanilla landscapes overall.

    They should also add a "collect all" button so we could collect from building faster if we have alot

    Yes there should be a confirm button after u but a premium item or when u speed up so u dont lose donuts. I have lost like 10 from accidently clicking speed up

    And yes they should also add a 360 degree turn to all buildings/decorations

    They should also add a rotate tool that allows u too rotate ur camera to give a full 3d view of people/buildings/decorations

    A better friends list perhaps a real list vs 4 on each page to make it easier to visit friends when you are going for the XP. Better yet the ability to toggle between a list and 4 on a page. A way to know when friends were added VS only alphabetical.

    It would be great now that the Decorations section is so huge if they could be categorized to make it easier to scroll through and find what you want. For example, put all the trees together, benches, shrubs, fences/gates, etc. Either that or fix the constant crashing because it sure is annoying when setting down brick walls to have to scroll to the end all the time :)

    Love all the ideas posted here.

    I would also like to see expansion possible all the way to the river/lake at the west end of the map. As I too am a bit of a perfectionist I hate seeing that shaded area at the end of my map and can do nothing about it... It should also be made possible to connect your own rivers to that lake.

    This drove me nuts when I started to re-design my town -- how about the ability to "select all" of a series of items? That way you could rapidly move a whole fence or set of hedges without having to select each and every piece.

    So here are a few ideas that I would love to see the developers impliment in the game if you have any ideas please share:

    A list of what your characters are doing at the moment. At level 23 I have quite a bit of characters and sometimes one gets lost in the shuffle and doesnt get assaigned a task. A simple list if possible to show what each character is doing would be great.

    A "confirm" button when spending donuts. They put one in when you want to store a tree why not with donuts. I would say 99% of us have lost donuts fast tapping. Yes there is a cancel button but thats not enough you should have to confirm donut spending.


    More rotation ability it annoys me that items can only by set in 2 placements. Example is the bench you should be able to rotate it 360 degreesWhat do you think? Any ideas?



    Problem with the last is that they would have to re-draw the whole thing cause right now decos and buildings only have 2 facades, my guess is this will never happen. Id like EVERY characters added to have their respective voice and to be able to zoom out to see my entire springfield. Also,another great idea: fix the * lag and constant * crashes

    All these ideas are great and I don't have a beef with any of them. In fact I would give my eye teeth to see them implemented.

    But I was thinking as I read this thread that the more options there are, the more "buggy" this game would get.
    It would crash even more.

    I don't think everything needs to be 360 rotate-able. Most decorations are fine as is, but benches should be able to turn fully.

    I get that due to the forced perspective of the camera, you really wouldn't want to have a building facing backward to the camera. But you should be able to at least rotate it left or right.

    Here are some ideas:

    - Grass and concrete patches that fit into one square. This would allow some fine-tuning where you only need a small bit of each.

    - If they can't make all the items with four views (unlikely), why not do it for a few things (like benches and a couple of other smaller items).

    - How about adding something like the "Springfield Paint Store" (maybe as a premium item) that would allow you to change the color of the houses as you like.

    Snoopy's Street Fair offers this and it's a lot of fun. (It's also a premium item, but for only 10 Snoopy dollars, which is about one real dollar.)

    You get a palette of colors and you just touch what you want to "paint". The main color is changed, but any trim or accenting colors stay the same as before. (There is also an "X" option that puts the item back to its default color.

    Something like this would really allow us to build more interesting-looking cities.

    A population sign that keep tracks of the number if characters in your town.

    Being able to trade or send gifts to friends.

    Having more side achievements or smaller quests to work towards.
