Apu goes where to repent

That would have been fun, seeing him praying to Ganesh. But I imagine singling him out from the others might have caused problems with the coding. Was probably just simpler sending him to the church with the others.

    So one of #1's task was to send an entrepreneur to repent. Since Apu was the first on the list I sent him. I was curious to see where he would go knowing that he is Hindu and was surprised that he went to the church to repent. I guess the game is hard coded to send them all to the church but it would've been nice to see him pray to Ganesh or even send him to the Buddhist temple since that's more closely related to Hinduism.

    Agreed. Is he suppose to be repenting that he is in the "wrong" religion. :)

    I believe in the episodes Apu has prayed in an area he has set up in the Kwik-E-Mart.

    But yeah, easier to code the way it was done, and less chance of some glitch.

    As far as I know, Hinduism doesn't involve a lot of repenting.

    I try to match the character to the task as much as possible, just so I won't run into anything that tweaks my brain like this :lol: (e.g. in this instance I would probably send Herman, as an entrepreneur and criminal who probably also goes to church.)

    I like to send Devil Flanders to repent whenever I get the option. I find it amusing :)

    I don't have that skin. Does he still count as a "saint" when he's the devil?

    Right. But if he's repenting about being in the wrong religion, he'd be switching religions! :)

    I like your idea. My head hurts as it is.

    What a fun event!

    I still smile every time I'm supposed to send a glutton to do a task, because I have to ignore Fat Tony, who is not in the glutton category. ("FAT" Tony. Not a glutton.)

    Also, that when I'm sending a "criminal" to a four-hour (or is it two hours) task, if I'm using the character finder, when i get to Chief Wiggums, he does not have that task available because he's not in the criminal category, and instead I see his NORMAL task, which is "collect bribes"

    Just sayin. :)

    It does. I guess EA didn't think of that when they coded the game.

    But Far Tony is dead. This is his brother Fit Tony. But he added on a few pounds and looked like his brother, so they just called him that.

    Same thing with "Skinner" real Skinner is alive, but no one liked him when he came back.

    You're not the only one. I've played this game non-stop for almost 9 months now, and have NEVER sent Marge on that task. I forgot it was there, and would CERTAINLY not have realized it took place at the prison. I assumed it was an Adult Education thing. (Doh!) When I sent her this morning, I followed her onscreen all the way to the prison, just to be certain I had it right.

    The task isn't to repent; it's to REPENT! Clearly the all caps signifies an acronym; in this case, Read Each Page of Ephesians in the New Testament! which of course takes place in a Christian church. :wink:

    This is the best explanation I think we'll ever get.
