    Beer n Brawl 6hr for the whole town task just got put in the box, for one.

    Rod or Todd just went on a new 4hr task: Throw Garbage at Springfield Elementary. (Not visual).

    All kids and youngsters have the new 4hr task. Not sure what it does but sent all of mine on it...

    "Throw Garbage at Springfield Elementary" appeared @ the TOP of every kids Task List after the Update... and it's been driving me bonkers, as I rarely use 4 hr tasks. :hunf:

    That task is also available for Krusty's daughter, who didn't have a 4he task till now.

    Just noticed this, *think* it's new. Hard to take a screenshot with high enough res to show though, had to use large image. A 2x2 dotted line grid appears when placing and removing: road, pavement, water, dirt, dirt road.

    This might not be new, but I never noticed until this update. If you have a character on a 24-hour task and they have less than 30 minutes left (maybe longer, but that's what I've seen) you can rush the task for free.

    Just noticed this one as well. Didn't check time left on task... my 24 hr buildings were synched with the task and the task is 15 min ahead now. Rushed task for 0 donuts and didn't have any deducted. Did it through job manager (only one character was on 24hr)

    That quest thing will cut into my fun, i enjoy having all my characters in one place the premium payout was just a bonus.

    Hate the icon with the green Checkmark, i know the task is done sometimes i just want to align there schedule with mine.... oh well.

    Not glad with some other changes but whatevs.
    Cleared my roads of NPCs and limited my roads to the Saloon.

    Also not happy with items in the store only two items for cash and both are fences?

    You have waited too long to submit the form. The system has recreated the form and it can now be resubmitted. Please try again.

    Not working for all of them for me. Seems like they might have to be over a certain amount. Worked for a 4 hour task with 15 minutes left. Didn't work for 45s task or 1hr task with 15min left.

    ETA: was just able to rush the 1 hr job through job manager, couldn't do it before through task book though. Tip to try all ways as some seem to work directly with character, but others only through JM.

    I can't find "Drink at Beer & Brawl" anymore, which I've been using for the last 6 months. Should I just complete Lurleen's quests finally?

    I'm gonna wait till event is over to see if it unboxes at any point. The idea being they wanted everyone's Lurleen available for sure to do the event so nobody could cry "I didn't know Lurleen could earn pickaxes and now I missed out on the Rugged Mule prize. Waaaah!"

    The ability to send multiple characters on jobs till a quest requiring them is completed by completing other jobs was removed.

    I still don't fully understand this one.

    I used to send all the kids to the YMCA for I think premium payout (Kruption Pt. 5). I get that I can't do that anymore. Instead, all the kids do the new 4 hr elementary school task.

    I have another building though I send all adults to for a 4 hour task. Payout is 260 cash for regular characters. It's part of a building quest line that hasn't been completed yet. Should I still be able to do that?
