EA Forums - Banner

vacation mode!

I like this idea, just a simple addition to the options panel which would put Vacation next to a players name. Only catch is remembering to turn it off when you return from your holiday - something which i forgot to do once with my email address and oopsie, lots of important stuff missed from people :oops:

    I love this idea! I'm going away for a few days at the end of the month and have another holiday booked for May, so this would really come in handy! my hotels both have free wifi but I might not have the time to play, and very doubtful I'd have the time to visit neighbours.

    That would be a brilliant idea! I'd definitely be behind something like that.

    :lol: I'll be honest, unless I know them, I wouldn't let a vacation notice stop me from replacing them.

    You can just have it where you set the start and stop times in advance so you dont forget to turn it on or off.

    I have a couple email accounts that let me do this. Kinda handy. 8)

    This is quite a good idea :)

    They could give the simpsons house a new skin with a banner saying "On my Holidays" or "On Vacation"

    Although to me when i go on holiday i always make sure where we go has wifi or at the very least some 3G connection

    This is a great idea. I have to be away from the game sometimes, and there's not an easy way to let friends know.

    The very fact that your worried about this is proof that you need a vacation.
    If I may pass on a word of advice, do not buy a ridiculously over priced data package and fire up an iPad at the swim up bar! People will laugh at you. On the upside, I think a few more Mexicans are now hooked.

    Agreed or if not then I think adding either a message system in game or having the origin client as an actual app not just PC

    There's always some time to play. I mean, you still need to use the bathroom on vacation, yeah? :lol:

    I'm not that ruthless that I will dump a neighbour if he hasnt played for a couple of weeks, I've had most of my neighbours a long time and dont usually drop someone unless I am sure they have stopped playing for good especially if I like their town. Would like some longer tasks though to allow you to have a week off but still be earning though.

    Like Apu's 7day shift? As long as it's not a required task I agree
