For some reason I started a new town yesterday, It's kinda fun starting over. I have no intention of racing through this like the race to the finish gang, so if anyone wants to start a new town and play casually we can discuss it here. I'm playing under John3288. The only rule is play Freemium and we have 3 goals. Buy the giant robot 75 donuts, buy the cobblestone pavement, 40 donuts and buy a whale 300 donuts. We haven't decided on what were crawling too officially but I'd guess who ever hits level 939 first wins. We are kinda winging this.

    ***************************************

    List of Glitches/Bugs we've Found

    *Error Adding Friends: log out and back in, if this doesn't fix try logging in from a different device

    *Friends handshakes don't always show up (only the name)so no points awarded: may be happening if you don't leave enough buildings for neighbors to tap

    * Level 2 or 3 some of the task timers don't start until you visit friends and back

    *Level 12? There is a cut scene that causes black screen. To fix, hard close device, clear cache and restart game

    *Level 12-14ish Triggering quests for Marge and Carl are buggy. Friends & back will fix.
    *Level (varies) Quest- A Rail of One City 5 - After placing the City Dump, the Monorail quests completely stop, for some players

    *Level 22 Characters started going under buildings. Willie's 1hr- under the tire fire. Monorail at prize track mid 7-8. To fix: Edit mode, tap building then check into place and character will move

    *We had one player with the Hospital build glitch. The tasks finally triggered late when Burns was tapped one day. Might be worth a try storing Burns if it doesn't kick in. Otherwise, store/replace the orange house or even buy another one....or wait it out.

    *The tasks for getting Sideshow Bob completed for one player at Level 30ish. Some of us have still have not seen Flaw and Order Part 3

    *March 22 Not all of the characters show up in the menu to work at the monorail dump. Sometimes as few as 3 are listed.

    * (!) Mark isn't displayed on character icon in KL to show that a task is available

    * Celeb-O-mania Part 3 won't trigger. Store Burns to get it to start.

    * I frequently have repeat scripts. First when I tap the icon in the upper left. Then the character is still walking around in town with the (!) over their head. When I tap that the complete script runs through again. This has been happening randomly since I started.

    If you run into a problem, even if you fix on your own, please @IckabodSchrek and let me know so we can add here. New players won't know the tricks.

    If you have more than one town or log out, remember to sync before you exit to save your progress. This can be done by going to Friends and back or KL and back.

    Are you doing premium or trying the other? I thought about starting another a while ago, but never got around to it.

    join me, I edited my post before you saw it, I'm playing freemium. Like I said this a crawl, not a race, and it will refresh my memory to help others. Although the game has already given me over 100 donuts, Not sure I remeber that, but I do remeber wasting them my first time out becuase I didn't realize how valuable they are. I did remeber to tap homer 10 times on his mypad. Was cool doing that again.

    SH is the only reason why I wouldn't start a new town. My original town was completely neglected during RTTF. I really only have time for one town.

    I have a feeder town, but haven't touched it in a while....
    If the point is to be lazy with the town, I can get on board with that.

    There is something seriously wrong with you. ;) I'll just chalk it up to you being a brilliant artistic genius. Or maybe you're just a SH masochist. Either way, you're alright with me ;)

    You crazy. I recently found a bunch of extra classic mansions in my inventory... apparently something wasn't completely fixed :D so last night and today I've been leveling them up. Only 250 million to 2 billion :'(:s:'( Pure torture. Can't imagine 4. I think @meinaz is wise!! Let me know when you and @moxxee get to SH. If you can skip it, I'll join you. :D

  • What level did SH start?
  • I honestly couldn't play because I would want to beat you at the game. I would want to be ahead of everyone in levels. I have too much competitive spirit in me. I must destroy you and in the process of having a second all consuming game, it would destroy me. Ironic?

    This is totally me. Even if it wasn't a competition I would make it into one. I really want to do a competition at some point to see how quickly somebody can get from level 1 to level 939 in a freemium town.
