    Luckily I saw the original thread about this, but I'd really appreciate if someone could PM me in the future :)

    Many thanks to all those who shared the love. I just caught the original thread before it vanished and managed to stock up in just in time! 8)

    What's weird is how this went undiscovered until now. There wasn't really any real trick to it, just Sleep, which you'd think tons of people would have done just by chance all along. Also weird is how EA shared the same weakness as the Borg from the famous Star Trek 2-parter, when their tour de force battle sequence ended with, "Sleep, Data! Sleep!"

    Anyway, my Android device has always totally reloaded the game from scratch each time it turns back on in any way, so no inventory joy here. Regular internet sleeps real hard, yes, TSTO no. So some of us still have something left to strive for. That's okay, though. It's karma. (This WASN'T the best glitch ever).

    I suspect an employee briefly went rogue. Just a hunch.

    Wonder if we could nominate said person as employee of the month....

    We could, but that employee would just be replaced by an inanimate Carbon rod.

    Too bad there's no PM society that pms the useful glitches and it would be better so then people could get a few extra stuff.


    Honestly 100 walls or 100 is too much. I'd be cool if I got like 50 of the cane fields and 50 of the cactus but when you get past 100 or of some things it just seems tacky. Maybe not the cactus or the cane fields but some things would be.

    Also I don't have enough land to have a huge desert. I try and incorporate my Springfield with almost every event tastefully. Some things kept out and some in. I still have a stadium area. A Christmas village and only one monorail station out which is the krusty one.

    But yeah we need a secret system for useful glitches. Also posting on here ruins it as obviously as it is some just don't realize.

    Found about about this in the original thread, which has since been deleted.

    Wanted to pm the person responsible for the help but haven't come across the name so I'll say it here; Thank you for sharing with the class!

    Haven't placed the monorail in my own town (to reduce ram usage) but llovanys' design on the 4th page shows me its potential. It just shows how multiple 'unique' items can look even greater when combined.

    Luckily I saw the original thread. I would also like to say a massive thanks to the OP that posted.

    Also would love if someone would put me on their PM list in case I did see the next thread (as they seem to get deleted quickly). Really appreciate it and thank you in advance to your kind forumers.

    Completely forgot about the cane fields! Wish I got more of them but can't complain as I've got loads of pink decorations for my Malibu area!

    I do love this forum!

    Maybe next time there's a similar glitch, we should start a thread that is titled "i love this forum".

    It doesn't have to describe the glitch, it just will alert us to something happening that we should discuss in PM.

    But i suspect Reddit may be giving us away too. That's pretty public.

    Could a closed group on FB work?

    Hi Guys,
    didn't post anything yet so far, although I'm a very regular player ... but seems like I'm missing all the lovely glitches this way :s
    Can somebody sent me something next time?
    Thank you very much

    There are a lot of decent ideas for sharing glitches outside this forum, through external message boards, media, email, PM lists, etc.

    The problem is, once we start forming this list and asking "who wants to know about future glitches", that list will be populated by some EA staff as well. There's no way around this.

    In my opinion, the only way that works is to spread by PM to people you think you can trust. I PMed a few key people who are on my trusted list. I'm sorry to say, but if you've only posted a few times on this board it's unlikely I'd ever PM you because for all I know you could be an EA informant! Granted, some of the forum regulars may be EA staff infiltrators but all we can do is spread this out to people we know and trust.

    Just opening up an email list/PM list/external forum/social media isn't much different from posting on these boards.

    I certainly am not an informant :)
    I'm just an addicted player from Belgium whose English is not so perfect to post a lot of things here. Reading is no problem, but writing is more difficult... But if that's the only way to receive the important information, I'll try to be more active on this site ;)

    Ha ha.. not saying you are! :wink:

    But it's like insider trading... if you have secret inside information, you don't put up a big sign saying "Call me if you're interested in Insider Trading! Please, no Police Inquiries!". You quietly deal with people you think you can trust, and trust them to deal with people they trust. Not necessarily the person you may have seen a couple of times in the lobby.

    Again, I'm not trying to exclude the forum lurkers, it's just the nature of how this information gets passed around.

    Luckily i managed to see the thread just in time as i went reading trough first 2 pages, when i clicked on 3rd the tread was already gone.
    Good thing is i leave important stuff opened and go with new tab for further reading.
    Now as far as items go i just wanted a couple more of cane and cactus fields as i only had one of each even i worked my * off to get them and all the other craftables from terwilligers. I was mid trough leveling back than.
    Tho i didn't go overboard with it 20 of each was more than enough :mrgreen: .
    The other thing that i wanted is 3 more triple story stadium parts but unfortunately they went premium so it was a no go :( .
    Made a couple of items just for testing purposes, finished it off with couple biohazard and stonecutter walls so i could round up my already established areas.
    I didn't want to duplicate uniques, felt tacky...so i still have one of monorail stations and didn't make tracks as im planing to do rail yard for donuts as long as it goes.

    So basically, the more you post with relevant discussion, questions, comments, whatever, the more people are likely to feel that they 'know' you and will trust you. Just takes some time and regular interaction. Making friends around here is pretty easy. :D
