What were the new icons?

new permanent addition seems to me. You get little icons to let you know what's going on with character tasks. Look at your task book for examples. Busy, done. waiting etc...

    Yeah I'm confused about what the 'walking man' looking icon next to a task means. It doesn't seem to make any difference to the task.

    I think the new icons give you indication whether a task has finished (a green tick), a character has a task in play (blue cogs), is busy on another task but has one waiting (red exclamation mark) and a limited time only icon.

    This does seem to have removed the ability to send springfielders on repeated premium quests like 'eat questionable fugu' or the ones at the beer n brawl or the mountain kwik e mart, which is a shame because I liked having that option to keep track of everyone in one building.

    I'm pretty sure it's a visual task icon.

    I was wondering this myself. I think you are right! Took a quick look and visual task with the jumping jack icon. :)

    Yep, I no longer have the fugu or beer n brawl tasks available, but I can still send send adults to party at the she-she lounge.
