    I think EA's 'logic' for removing act 1 craftables is flawed, given that The SAME CURRENCY is used in act 1 and 2 to craft items. I would be happy if it had said 'craft act 1 items before......' AND they changed the craftables currency too.
    So all craftable currency earned in act 1 can be used to make act 1 and act 2 items, but currency earned in act 2 cannot be used to craft act 1 items??? Also, unless you have a crystal ball ( or make use of LPN's excellent guides ) how is the average player supposed to know what is to come and if they should craft act 1 items or wait to see if they prefer to craft act 2 items? A lot of players wouldn't necessarily have enough craftable currency to get all items anyway.

    Looking ahead, it appears we'll need more ornaments and ribbons to craft all the new prizes than we did in Act 1.

    If my adding is right we needed 2764 ornaments and 1494 ribbons to get the four new items: Chalet, Wooly Bully, Igloo and Clams sign.

    In Act 2 we'll need 3135 ornaments and 1665 ribbons to get the four new items: Efcot, Fireplace, Couch Ice Sculpture, and Tree lot.

    Hopefully, everyone had some excess to carry over from Act 1 to get a head start. I did manage to get all four Act 1 prizes but I used up most of my ornaments. I was pretty lazy about collecting those 68 ornaments from neighbors. I don't know if I can get away with that in Act 2.

    According to one site I was reading, there will only be one more week of Weekly Challenges. The payouts appear to be the same as the two previous weeks. I hope this isn't the case because they payout 350 ornaments and 500 ribbons each week.

    Makes no sense, when weren't the crafting items available for the whole event?

    Wanted an igloo but was waiting for next week's daily challenge before I bought it. :(

    To those who don't play Family Guy: EA isn't too bad when it comes to shilling for real money. Family Guy is so blatant about it and things are horribly overpriced. The graphics and humor of this game are far superior, so I don't mind throwing a bit of money toward EA. Family Guy -- no more. Such visible greed has taken its toll.

    I disagree. While Tapped Out is better with graphics, the humor in FG game is far mor superior than Tapped Out and mostly voiced characters in FG game. :wink:

    This. This is true. This is why I don't play Family Guy no more haven't for a long time.

    Same here. Deleted FG long ago basically for the same reasons. At least in TSTO, you do the task, you get the item.


    Still stinky they REPLACED the crafting item when the blurb said new ones would be ADDED.
    totally hate crafting in any case.

    Make your Springfield merry with prizes 21 days says it all for me. Not saying ,phase 1 crafting prizes end on Dec. 19th is garbage. 21 days tells people they have until the end of the ("whole") thing , not just a little. Got all mine done but it sucks for all the others stockpiling for later. And only getting RIBBONS from weekly is pretty harsh as well. What gives on that, also makes it tougher for people.

    Good point!

    But if we're going by that rationale, the Act 1 cumulative prizes (e.g., the Orphans) that we earned with Santa Hats would still be available. This is an OLD image I stole from your simpsonswiki Content Updates page. It was originally posted around December 9th or 10th. See? At the bottom of the splash-screen? For THOSE prizes, it says "New Prizes will be added ... "

    When looking at those screens only the prize screen says that new prizes will be added, it says nothing about new stuff being added in the crafting screen.

    When you look at both images the crafting one says nothing about new prizes being added the new prizes will be added in xxxx days is in the prize screen section only not the crafting one and they did add new prizes to the prize screen at the start of act 2.


    If I were a new TSTO player, unaware that there was a deadline to get those orphans, I'd be correct in being totally ticked off that I can no longer get the orphans.

    I realize what you're saying -- that we had no guarantees. But their wording is totally misleading. And a new player should not have to rely on information from people who -- like you -- take their time to go looking at files and share with us. A new player should be able to download a game, look at the game's instructions, and believe that the instructions are reliable.

    I did add text to my post above but guess the post was already to big to add to, anyway what I said was that in the images it says nothing about adding new prizes in the crafting screen shot only in the prizes screen.
