    Goodbye, sorry to see you go. But I know what you mean, sometimes it's just too much. But I don't have the strength to quit.

    You DO realise that the Xmas update required re-downloading ALL THE GRAPHICS with snow on them?
    Similarly, the takedown re-downloaded ALL the original non-snow graphics AGAIN?

    Adding snow to everything isn't just a couple of lines of code.

    Unless there's graphical tweaks to everything again, updates should be 1/10th (or less) of the size each time.

    Snow has happened for years in the game, it's called reusing coded functions, rather than reinventing the wheel each year.
    Yes, they re-use the graphics each year. But they don't keep duplicates in the game files all year round - they swap snow-covered ones in for the normal ones at the start of the event, and vice-versa at the end. That 200MB would mostly be the graphics changes.

    Why do you think those other sites can only see "snow covered" pics for items during the event, and not normal pics? 'Cos they don't get added (for new Xmas content) or readded until the takedown update.
    There's only one graphic for the Simpsons House (and per skin) in the files - it's swapped for the snow one at Xmas, and replaced with the normal one at takedown. And that goes for every... single... object... in the game.

    If EA kept it all in all year round, the game's size would 150% or more.

    Oh I get it. You're trying to be the new Josh. He was much funnier though.
    whos josh? i only know jim and hes... well

    I think it was JoshSheerer. Used to post all the time a couple years ago. Over the top complainer. Had South Park Mel Gibson as his avatar. I started a thread asking about him but no replies yet.

    EA mentioned him in the game before Halloween 2013 but they mimicked his name as joshjeerer

    And my thread was promptly locked. Not sure why that happened. Is there a rule against discussing banned members? I'd love to know how/why that happened.
