    "Casino Nessie, Stampy, Street Cleaner can now go on Cobblestone too"

    So they previously purposely designed it so those items would only stay on Dirt? What is the point of a Street Cleaner if it doesn't actually go onto streets?!
  • Orientation of bramble hedges changed too. If you have any parallel to the ocean you'll have to flip them around to get them the way they were before this update.

    Thanks for posting this - looks like it hints that winter/xmas related items are coming, at least returning items.
  • Placing Festive Light Plunger now yields 55 XP instead of 55 and now costs 55 Donuts.
    Festive Light Plunger Bonus $ and XP was raised from 0.75% to 2.25%.
    oooh, looks like I need to buy that before I update. 30 donuts for 2.25% instead of 55....
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.
  • This may be old news but since I store the snow monster and just brought him out he is now a playable character. He used to just sweep when tapped.

    There's a 25 donuts rebate so total cost is 30 donuts the same as before the update.
  • As long as the percent went up.....since I already uninstalled I'll just get it now.

  • Now all they need to do is make the Halloween characters go on the cobblestone and we'll be good. Lol
  • Baby Gerald, Kearney's Other Son, Patches and Poor Violet and White Witch Burns' jobs now payout premium.

    Does that mean their payout got lowered? Or are they double premium like Sherri & Terri?

    Regular premium.

    they got a bonus payout too since they're 2
  • Do they pay the same as Sherri & Terri now?
  • I had a second ice sculpture santas helper and snowball in inventory. I thought they were the ones without multipliers, but they did after the update.

    The chicken coops that I've crafted don't seem to give a bonus anymore, the two story outhouse however does.
  • Today I could no longer store Cletus' farm. 12 hours until he's done brewing.
    Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.
