    Something else, my life doesn't revolve around playing the simpsons tapped out, tbh I'm glad for the break from it events go on too long and if you want to earn everything you have to login every few hours for a full month, that is unless you want to spend a fortune to speed it up.

    It wouldn't let me choose two options. Both redecorating and buying land. Daily and hourly tapping. :D

    Decorating and buying land. I still have so many buildings I have to place. I'm sort of dreading a new event because a new event means new building and decorations. :shock:

    One of the poll options could have been "completing level quests". Not everyone here has been playing for two years and has $100 million game money and 6000 donuts. No wonder newbies don't post here a lot.

    I'm enjoying this "down time" by doing level 43 and 44 quest lines, and wondering if I should start 45 by buying the sign or if I should spend it on other things first. I have perhaps one of the messiest towns in existence.

    I was a newbie and have a level 46 SF and still completing quests. Most of the regulars have higher leveled Springfields, more money, and more content than me. However, they've still been incredibly friendly and have welcomed me into their group. It just takes a little commitment and a willingness to have fun and integrate yourself into the conversation. :thumbup:

    Nuked my KL and slowly finding my design. Otherwise taking it slower than I have in a long time. We had a solid run of back to back events. I'm also slowly visiting less neighbors each day and browsing around their towns vs tap and go. It's a nice change of pace.

    I nuked my town a week ago and have been slowly putting it back together. I've been playing since Christmas 2013 and I have way too much stuff :shock:

    Hey, good post.
    I took the time earler to really zoom in on my town and stroll around the streets at zoomed in max view.
    With all of the capturing of elves and what not going on of late I have not taken the time for a closer look in ages.
    There is some sweet detail in this game, nice to have a bit of time to check it out.
    Me too! :D
    One of my favorite things to do with this game, is take some extra time when reassigning tasks to everyone, vs. Tapping the character locator and selecting the 24hr task as quickly as possible.

    I love to zoom in tight, still use the locator tool, but instead just watch them walk through town a few seconds each. It really makes it feel like watching some raw footage from the show itself. This is one of the primary reasons I love my town modeled like scenes from the show. To have the "camera" follow Lisa as she passes CBG standing outside his store, for example, makes me wish the text box listing their task choices was not dead center of the screen

    But this particular break I decided to hook up my PS3 and take another stab at GTA4. I got it as a present when it released but it was giving me motion sickness so I didn't get past the first mission.

    After 5 hours of continuous play I think I better go to bed. And that was after 2 hours of practicing guitar with Rocksmith. Heh but what a difference in game play, trying to learn 30 different functions on this six-axis controller; or a real guitar, vs. just tapping a screen. So much more involved and exciting.

    I sense a huge shift in how my free time will be spent over the next few weeks. A welcome change.

    SF: finally saved up enough to buy the SNR and have enough for a possible new level's first building. Finally got the nerve to move a few of my businesses around after nine months of leaving them alone. Also added a Halloween area and hopefully going to add a Christmas and **** area soon.



    KL: nuked and finally got done putting the rides where I want them and put barriers around every walkway and the park perimeter creating areas like a real amusement park. I also accidentally ended up creating a memorial to past bad events with all of the Easter and **** junk as well as some Valentines bushes; Now just have to save up enough to start planting trees and making the park seem more like a park and less like a wide open grassy field

    Same here. It's the first time since I started playing this game. Looking at Godus and Simcity Build It (never played a Sims game before). I was surprised to see Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic and GTA: San Andreas available for tablets.

    Currently trying to save for more land.

    Recently built the Post Office, Wiggum Place and KBBL Radio.

    Now being prompted to build the Buddhist Temple. Where's El Astri gone?

    Oo I finally got round to using Ralphs Little Helper skin.

    Putting everyone on 8 hour jobs overnight and 12 hour jobs during the day. Up to 42m in cash now. Have also reclaimed some space, a little bit in each zone in anticipation of some new buildings. Generally not playing so much.

    Working on my KL. Try to collect tickets from my friends KL.

    By the way - can you get friendship donuts from KL as well, or only from friends SF?

    I'm just waiting and collecting money. I put everyone on 24 hour tasks and only log in once a day. It's kind of a nice break but I am getting a bit bored now.
