After not being able to so much as get to the loading screen for about eight hours, I just checked for the Nth time today and the game downloaded a 200+ mb update (seemed suspiciously close to the Christmas update size). I swear when I logged in that the Origin menus looked slightly spruced up.

I'm now (as of two seconds ago) back in my town at last. Haven't noticed anything too new yet. Anyone else have anything similar happen to them? Is your town back up?

I never lost my town, but Origin is back. Haven't noticed anything new.

    My wife had 39 updates on her phone and the same on her iPad. I haven't played yet this evening.

    No update, but all seems back to normal - keeping my fingers crossed.

    Happy Tapping all....

    I got about an 80.8mb update earlier this morning, not a 200mb? I used to get so excited when their was the update screen but now it seems to just be in-app maintenance.

    But at least origin is up and running again. Sucks for people who are still unable to get in though. It's getting tougher and tougher to connect simply on a 3G connection. I only play on wifi at home these days because its so much harder on 3G

    Oh that's annoying. I set Hibbert off on his first 12hr quest not long before the crash and he had 8 minutes left when I got back in.

    Just before the crash it said I had been logged out and to play anonymously. I react to these strange notifications the same every time just in case: I touch nothing, delete the app, re-download and re-install it. I really don't want my town reset by tapping something when I shouldn't. Anyway, I reckon that's why it downloaded everything again (though why all the information's not included in the installer I have no idea).

    The main this is, as you say, we're back up and running again. Time to go on a neighbourhood watch. See you in Springfield!

    I had access to my town all day but I didn't have access to Origin until 5 mins ago. All my friends are back and I was finally able to finish building the Bowlarama.

    I also didn't get any updates and everything looks to be the same.

    Had access to my town all day. Noticed Origin was down around 13:00 ET. It was back up by about 22:00, and I was able to access all of my friend's towns. No update for me!

    That's why you had a huge update. You had to download all the xmas content again.

    After 8-10 hours, no update and no free donuts, but I do finally have access and they were kind enough to give me all the hours of work for my buildings but not rot my tomacco.
