    I know there were several layers of warnings ... That said, I DO think it should have been placed in a much less accessible spot.

    One option would have been to add it to the "decorations" menu .... At the very very end, past all the other junk. The "decorations" menu would be best imho, because it is so freakin long that it takes forever to get to the end by "mistake"

    Treat it as an "item" I would need to scroll a looooong way to even get to ... And THEN, if I select it, have all those layers of warnings. Or, better still, a separate PIN number.

    But at LEAST dont put it where it was. ANYTHING to get it off the main screen! These screens are already cluttered with action buttons.

    I guess you could always go to the support chat and ask for a backup to be restored.

    Will the nuclear option store items that are otherwise non storable? Like fences, etc?

    Do we know if EA intends on fixing it and reissuing it? The only thing that can fix my second town is the second big kablooie.

    I hope they bring it back but like Annette said it just CANT be on the main screen. I think within the build menu would be fine and I think you should have to enter your login password. That keeps hooligans from screwing your game up as a prank or whatever. And I mean both ghost visitors who take over your town virtually or real life frenemies.

    I didn't see a problem with where it was, and they give you a ton of warning before proceeding. If you do it by accident it would be really your own fault for not reading anything. I like the option and hope they bring it back. I know I will never do another big re deco without it.

    I agree about the warnings, and I agree about it being my own fault. But that shouldn't change the fact that it was poorly placed.
    There are two separate concepts at work: "reason" and "excuse" ..

    If I am driving and a tree branch completely covers a stop sign from my view, and I do not stop, the law allows me to use the covered stop sign as an EXCUSE.

    If I am driving and a tree branch only partially covers a stop sign, I will not be able to use that as an excuse, even if -- in my case -- the branch was the REASON.

    So, one way to make it less likely that someone will end up crushed by a car while crossing a street, it would be smart to keep all stop signs unobstructed. The guy crushed under the car couldn't care less who was liable. It doesn't help HIM that the law has someone to blame. He just wishes it had not happened.

    So, yes, those multiple warnings on that "nuke" make it my own fault for blowing up my town. If I'm chasing Sideshow Bob and get too eager and miss the warnings, i have no EXCUSE. But the location of the button was still the REASON. :)

    If they haven't fixed that thing with people getting into the wrong town (I know they said they did, but I still hear reports of it), I'd rather not have a nuke button. Someone suggested a pin confirmation before nuking. Or maybe just type your password?

    Reminds me of the Unix command,

    rm -rf *

    And rm by default ain't asking if you meant it. :) Bye-bye entire file system from there down. :-o
