building animation glitch?

They animate when someone spies on them. It's intentional.

I love it, I can see animations that I haven't gotten to see since I built a building. There are also some I've never gotten to see before now.

    I dunno man ... there's no pyramid eye on these buildings. If they were being spied on, the spying eye has been cleared so I would think that any spy related animation should cease. Knowwhatimean?

    EDIT:

    After further thought, no, your explanation doesn't fit the evidence. Channel 6 antenna is NOT animating when it used to, and IS now animating under conditions when is used to be static. This on/off condition is observably not correlated to being spied upon.

    Seriously? You post a lot of messages, I'm supposed to go through each of your posts to try to find the one in which you claim to have posted potentially relevant screenshots? If you're going to reference a previous post, do the kindness of linking it for us.

    MuleHeadJoe, I'm experiencing what you are describing, with the news sattelite. My Clause Co. building continues to animate after I've cleared the pyramid as well. I guess I don't mind so much since it looks cool. But the news sattelite is confusing, I used to rely on that to determine if I remembered to set it on task or not.

    My bad dream house was going disco crazy the other day. No on was in it and there was no pyramid over it.

    I've been purposely spying on buildings which have cool or rarely seen animations so that my neighbors get to see them. I've been enjoying seeing my springfield so bustling with motion!

    The same happened on xmas with fruitman signal. Its just a mess up with coding the spy thing. Same thing about spied buildings staying animated even after having being tapped they stay active till u close app or change screen
