Whacking Day - How would you play?

Prev1
If there's anyone that could sell this idea to EA and get it in the game, it's you, Lyle Lanley.

    Interestingly enough I was thinking this when I was watching the episode last night but you did a much better job than I of makeing it a practical part of the game. I hope to see it as a future update. :lol:

    One thing though you should be able to "whack" (tap) snakes for money xp and other stuff like how we capture side show bob occasionally (in game).

    Well thought out and good effort although I can't see about 90% of it happening. Love the idea of giving us choices, whichever choice we don't take, the building/decor could be available afterwards via donuts or excess 'flags'.

    Although if we're to get Louie with the Legitimate Businessmen's Club surely he should have a task there?

    90%!? Ouch. How much would it change if Louie acts as bouncer at the LBSC?

    Very well done. EA give this person a job.

    I like the concept of different story routes, but can't see EA attempting it, and no doubt it would decrease the games stability in some way.

    Not that what you have said is wrong or anything, I'd personally love to see 100% of it (including Loui's new bouncer task :wink: ) I just meant EA would probably only introduce about 10% of your ideas, unfortunately.

    I see. 100% Plausible, 0% Probable. That I can agree with....for now [evil laughter].

    Fantastic! Make sure you get what you are due once they steal this.
    One change...they don't need a drum to lure the snakes, they borrow Barry White (or his album)!

    Brenda, you are right. I was reluctant to put him in as I thought my already low probability rating would drop more. But what the heck! Barry White is in! And if he's not available, perhaps his brother Larry.

    Added the poll.

    So many of us on this forum seem to have some form of OCD. Could your OCD handle it if you were only able to complete one story, and therefore miss out on any decor/rewards that the other story offered?

    FIRST VOTE!!! The Legitimate Business Man's building far outweighs the Historical Society for me...

    I'd wanna do both. This is where 2 Springfield's would come in handy, but I agree

    ...The Legitimate Business Man's building far outweighs the Historical Society...

    Whacking Day (and official resume for EA)


    Legitimate Businessman's Social Club - Louie (tap phrases: You askin' me? You got it boss. Touch me one more time (in an annoyed way (It'd be funny if Miss Springfield said it too in an entirely different way)).
    24 - Shadow a person of interest: if possible, connect Louie randomly to any SF character and he follows them, if inside he stands outside.
    16 - Act as bouncer outside LBSC
    12 - Sign up new voters: visits Springfield hospital (the morgue)
    8 - Collect "dues" from businesses: Goes in and out of shops
    6 - Do a little time: visits Springfield Pen
    2 - Meet with the boss: Dines at Luigis
    1 - Speak at Career Day: Visits Springfield Elementary

    Okay, done. Thanks for reading. I'm just happy it's out of my system. Surely EA has something else in mind, but in my mind this will be Whacking Day.

    12 - if have cemetery, go there.
    2 should be a 4, to match Tony. Maybe joint task.

    And. 2 hr task of collect dues. Everyone's had fun With Barney, this could be a variation. Send him to nearest business owner to where he was tapped, like Santa does when you tell him to break in for Milk and Cookies.

    Just breathing on this game makes it more unstable...

    I really like this premise for Whacking Day, but I don't see EA giving us different story paths. So I'll file this under the heading of great "fan fiction"! :)

    I sure don't know much about programming, but I was thinking of this as the old Choose Your Own Adventure books. All the info is in the book (update) readers (players) just select the page (plot) they want to follow. Uh oh, I've confused myself. Damn analogies.

    This is extremely ambitious, RSommons! clap.gif


    I'd prefer The Legitimate Business Man's Building; it's presence and script would bring back Fat Tony for those who missed getting him. However, the tasks are better for The Historic Society since most (all but 12-hour task) take place outdoors.

    The inclusion of the Church and City Hall also makes the WD scenario out of reach of new players who neither house nor friend farm, but these things happen, so it's not a big deal.

    I'm leery about how EA would apply your most excellent suggestions, though. For example, for Louis, the 4- and 1-hour tasks might be grouped together so all 3 people doing the job could do it when they were free, OR the tasks could be assigned one after the other to mess stuff up. I remember people complaining that after getting Mr. Plowman, his tasks took precedent and no Burns mansion tasks came up until all PM's tasks had been completed.

    Honestly, too many of us MUST HAVE EVERYTHING, so the twin paths thing, huh-uh.

    So, since you appear to have time on your hands, would you be interested in grading essays for a modest honorarium? :D

    I voted LBSC.

    Wow, this is such a well thought out idear. I really hope you can contact EA some bow to shere this with them. But as mentioned before my OCD would not let me choose just one path if it ment missing out on charictors or buildings for me it's all or nothing. I suppose I'm just greedy.
