    When I wake up early on August 16th, I fully expect to see:


    • Twice the land
    • Shelbyville expansion
    • As much water as there is land
    • All previously mentioned issues addressed
    • All past items ever offered added to current store
    • All characters are now voiced and all tasks are animated
    • A button becomes available to make clothes optional for adults on Taco Tuesday in my game
    • One character is killed each night until I solve the murder mystery, and then they return to begin the ongoing theme
    • Inventory has voice search functionality ("Game, find something that will look awesome here")
    • Characters greet me by name when I tap them
    • Nighttime/weather mode
    • Dalton's dog and Deadshot's Stamp the Ticket guy

    Plus whatever surprises EA comes up with...

    Is that all? Think big 8)

    I'd make sure you have all your favourite breakfast treats in the cupboard the night before, you are going to need a cheering up

    Murder mystery with characters dying till we find the culprit sounds awesome tbh

    The funny thing is I don't expect anything big happening on the 16th. I'd be very pleased if we get an update but not holding my breath.

    In MY case, if they increase the item limit, I don't think I'll be able to place any more than I already have anyway. I'm already having trouble loading my town (and even other towns when I try to do visits) ...

    I'm only at about 6,500 items at the moment. Far below the maximum limit, right? And it still lags a lot. I'm sure any of my neighbors can attest to it.

    I play on several devices. Other than TSTO, the only game apps I have are things like crossword puzzles and Sudoku.

    On my Nexus 7, I have almost 20GB of storage space still available on it, but not sure if storage space would be the issue anyway. Version 5.1.1

    On my old iPad, I have version 9.3.4 ... I get the same problem with that device. Sloooooow loading of my towns. (I have 16.3 GB of storage still available on that device)

    On my Samsung Galaxy SIII. Version 4.1.2. Total storage space of 12GB, with 9 GB unused. Total RAM 1.5GB. I clear the memory (RAM) before starting up TSTO, and end up with about 700 MB of RAM available to play. (On that device, the towns load a little more quickly than the other devices.)

    (Is there a way to check memory on the Nexus and iPad? )

    Anyway, I don't expect the raised item limit to help me. I KNOW it will help lots of other people, but I don't expect to be able to add much more to my town.

    I keep reading all these 'apple pie in the sky' scenarios and think to myself, what if it ain't good that's coming?
    What if EA decides to nuke everyone's SF and make them all start over?
    What if they decide that you can only have one of any item and take the extras away?
    What if they cut out the bonuts and made you buy them only?
    What if they collude with say Apple and make the game only play on the next iPad?
    What if they release content related to location? ( a make Marge change Maggie's nappies, or make Homer drool over spritzkutchen, etc.)
    Change tasks to all 168 hours long.
    Make it so that you have a 5 minute window to collect from a task or it resets.
    Make all animated tasks occur on the same single road tile.
    Limit roadways to east-west and rivers to north-south.
    Limit walls to zigzag.
    Require the tallest buildings to be located in the southeast corner.
    Make all buildings face south and not be rotatable.
    Require your building placement be by alphabetical order.

    Now aren't you glad I'm not in charge of game planning. See what happens when we get too much down time to speculate about what's going to happen next.

    Great list, had a good laugh knowing this will not happen. I feel like we've hyped this day up thinking something great is going to happen. But my still hoping for at least more land and water.

    I expect your expectations of the expected updated will mostly expectedly be shot down, which I expect to be expected.

    Just a heads up, this game will be launching today around 2:00/1:00 Central time, because that's when I have to be at work. Enjoy!
