Never really noticed. I don't really like that game.

    However, Tapped Out money now collects in 5 seconds, which is much faster than Quest for Stuff, so it kind of evens out.

    I'm just hoping Tapped Out updates building collecting to the preferred way.

    i have to agree in gets annoying in tapped out when there is money and xp in the way when you want to quickly tap the buildings.

    or lately when the money gets in the way when your trying to tap the order guys.

    i wish it just instantly collected it when you tap it instead of it getting in the way even for those 5 seconds.

    I don't really have that problem. Money tends to pop out too the right, so if I tap rows in the right direction, it doesn't land in front of anything I haven't tapped already.

    4 hours makes that much of a difference to you? Curious to hear why.

    The preferred way? Your preferred way, I'll let you have.

    I learnt fairly early how to tap buildings quickly in TSTO and it rarely lets me down, so I really don't see the problem. I spent a month or so playing TQFS alongside Tapped Out and didn't find any redeeming features.

    Given that they had plenty of time to look at Tapped Out and work out the kinks and come up with better ways to do things I was extremely disappointed with the end result.

    That might be better, but I only got about an hour into the game before giving up due to disinterest/boredom/complete and utter resentment for a show I dont like.

    I wish there was a "Shake to collect" option in Simpsons. I play a few games where that option is available and I love it

    It's been discussed on the forums several times the 24 hour visiting rule is very annoying. If you don't visit your neighbors the same times every day the times will get messed up (from becoming progressively later each day) and eventually you'll be a half hour behind, an hour behind etc. A 20 hour or 23 hour visiting rule is much more manageable.

    For reals. The delay in loot autocollection in Family Guy is kind of annoying at times when I just want to hit home and get out of there. And if I hit home too quickly, it likes to forget to save the loot for me.

    Makes a huge difference. As an example; yesterday I visited my FG neighbors late (around 1100). In TSTO that would mean that my schedule going forward would be screwed. In FG I was able to visit this morning at my regular time of 0800 . Back on schedule :)

    I tried the FG game, gave up after a few hours because of the stupidity of some of the things

    I agree with OP I much prefer the method for collecting in TQFS over TSTO. As neuroheart (hey, neighborino!) mentioned above, cash does pop a certain way in TSTO so collecting in a certain order in my town does minimize the issue, but the method in TQFS is still superior in my opinion.

    Other things I think TQFS does better include no maddening auto select when selecting items/decos, no prompt when placing items in inventory, and I really like how you must unlock land areas, characters, and skins.

    But the things I DON'T like about TQFS are really turning me off from the game. Premium items really don't help with you game play - no % increase or anything else that could help in the long run so you're spending premium currency for nothing; the premium items are wacky things that really don't fit - a giant sphinx stewie for example; having to get friends through Facebook; and things TSTO had to fix such as characters getting lost/hiding behind buildings, no easy way to locate characters, and dragging/moving items is very twitchy.

    All in all, the Facebook thing and no game-play benefit for premium items are fatal to TQFS for me. I've been playing TQFS since day one, and have been mostly putting characters on 24 hour tasks because at this point I really don't care anymore. Guess I'm just holding on to see what they do with the Facebook thing.

    I disagree. For some reason, in FG, I never tap the building I'm aiming for. No probs with that is TSTO.

    I think the one thing FG does better is the 20 hour visit thing, as previously stated. oh, and so far, it seems Tinyco is actually interested in what the fan base has to say. We had a complaint about a glitch, much more minor than, OTHER PEOPLE LOGGED INTO MY GAME, and they fixed it in a timely matter.

    At this point, I'm kind of viewing the TSTO EA staff as mustache twirling villains.

    I picked up playing Family Guy because I was a little bored with TSTO, but TSTO really started picking it up. I'm neglecting Family Guy hardcore now.

    I don't visit neighbors in FG and I do find that collecting $ from houses is more difficult because of where you have to tap for some reason is the foundation of the house.

    One thing I personally like about FG is the leveling up of characters which opens up new tasks, etc. It makes things more interesting. In TSTO if you're all caught up the tasks you get are regurgitated with no storylines. For example I just bought the Volcano Lair (Finally!!!) and was disappointed that Scorpio's tasks were simply "Make Hank be a Great Boss" with no dialogue attached to it. I really expected dialogue there. Besides that, once the Roger Myers Jr. taskline ends, I'll be back to "harvest perfection" and the like. Leveling up characters delays some tasks and keeps it interesting, at this point I don't think TSTO can implement it but I kind of like it better. The dialogue in both games is funny, but TSTO>FG for sure.
