    This was a difficult choice! I really wanted to choose Tacos, but went with the first choice. :D

    I was thinking the same thing today!
    Imagine for the building where you can have many task, like the stonecutter...

    Great idea! ;-)

    I would absolutely love that feature. Sort of like how they do it with the Springfield Heights buildings. My only thought is that having different skins and task times might make it more complicated.

    Not sure that we need it for every building but would be great on certain ones.

    BUT this game is called tapped out for a reason! It's not to have short cuts. It's to make our lives more misreable! :lol:

    All joking aside, I think that's a pretty neat idea! Anything to make the game more intuaitve I'm down for! :D

    I wholeheartedly agree. I've been thinking this for some time now.

    As for the skins, most Do It Now tasks seem to just switch them automatically, should be as easy with building tasks.

    Now, I just want to be able to tap my Bad Dream House and have at least one character that would activate its animation.

    I was thinking of this exact idea the other day!

    Way too many premium buildings that we don't use, just saying. A change would be nice.

    If they re going to cherry pick certain buildings, then the ones with group animations would be particularly good. Outdoor Opera Stage with all the Terwillegers and the Stonecutters Table come to mind. I hate having to chase characters all over town when I'm only missing one or two from them.

    Yep. Totally agree. See my post for 1/11/16 where I suggested the same thing.

    From a user on Addicts, the Babysitter Bandit will rob that house, so try strategically locating her next to it before assigning the task.

    If you have her (and the BDH), I don't.
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.

    Thanks for the tip simp7fan (and anon addict)! :D
    Success! Temporarily moved BDH close to the Buggy Bumpers, then stored/replaced the BB to release the Babysitter, luckily there was nothing else for her to rob so in she went to the Bad Dream House. Lights are a-flashing!

    I'd be ok with just an asterisk next to tasks which are visual.

    This would be much easier to add to the game than a launch menu for every freaking building. That's a lot of work just so you can have an option how to start tasks.

    This definitely needs to be bumped up. I have been thinking of the EXACT same thing for months but never got around to posting it. Glad to see a lot of other people also want to see this feature in the game.

    Noticed that the OP mentioned something about Martin and CBG fighting on top of Android's ... What task is that? Whose job list has it? I assume It's a skin, but I have pretty much all of the skins so could try this task ... Never knew anyone did anything on rooftops. :shock:

    Yes and yes and yes! I would love this -- at minimum for unique buildings or outdoor tasks!

    Also, I haven't seen this Martin & CBG task. Sounds interesting!

    I can't believe 9 people voted Tacos. Oh Moxxee, you started a revolution.

    to add, I almost voted Taco since I am a Taco enthusiast, but I vote "sure why not"
