    Thanks everyone for the reassurance regarding the disappearing stuff. I'm glad I posted here :)

    Dear all,
    by placing the monorail tunnels side by side and then store both of them will remove the mountain on the last tunnel you store. This means by repeating that you can remove all mountains exept 2 (the original tunnel and one additional mountain.

    Regards,
    Mogli

    That works, except it does not remove all the mountains. However. If you move the Simpson's mountain to the far left, then move your tunnels to the right of it, then delete sections using Mogli's method one by one, you can clear all but one section.

    Thanks! That solves an annoying problem caused by not being able to place the monorail tunnels exactly where you want to. Unless you've been very, very lucky, I wasn't, it's likely that you won't be able to connect your existing network to the tunnels without redoing the whole darn thing!!!!!!! This solves that nicely and adds development land to boot!

    Try nuking, Mary.

    Nuking is always the answer, Mox! :D

    Nukes are NEVER the answer!

    Have these already been mentioned??

    1. I'm able to move the original SH tunnel. I can't store it, but i can place it anywhere on the mountain strip now. It's not locked to that original location.

    2. I have more flexibility to place the monorail tunnels. They were originally showing green (able to place) only in certain, spaced sections, about the width of the tunnel itself. But after clearing the mountain strip completely, i can now place the tunnel with a little more accuracy, moving it about the width of a road.

    I removed the original tunnel and now have a two lane causeway to SH!

    Its so beautiful.

    After I got a long strip of the mountains removed, I just put water there... in case the patch is "hungry" and decides to eat anything in that area. :mrgreen:

    The patch might consider water more replaceable than say a few cheap brown houses or a line of easily replaceable boy and girl border guard trolls.

    I put all the 'HAIL ANTS' signs they gave me from the rocket launch prizes... if EA would be so kind to collect them back it would free up some room in my inventory! :D

    Darn....I wanted to do the removal but I only just now got the first tunnel. It says I competed this weeks task which doesn't make sense....it says I got 4 days left. I am confused about that. Can I still get the second tunnel next week? Or are these tunnels a limited time deal? By the time act 2 happens I am not sure I'll be able to do it in time. Don't they usually do each act as a ingame update? Does the glitch really need both tunnels???

    That's a lot of questions :shock: :D

    Each week you complete 5 tasks at the rail yard. If you received the first tunnel, it means you have completed the five tasks for the week. In 4 days the tasks will renew. Next week the tasks will be earning you tracks and then a donut bonus on the last task. I think this goes on for three weeks until you get to week five when you are rewarded with another tunnel.

    Yes the glitch needs both tunnels.
    Oh okay thank you! Just hope I can do it before they patch it. X3

    I'm still on the fence about trying this in case I lose anything. Any update as to whether this will be patched or left as it is?

    Me too. I don't know if it's safe to do it. Will EA even bother patching it though? I would just love to get rid of all the mountains and get some extra space!

    Same! I would love more land, and I've seen this for some of my neighbors BUT.... I don't want to get my hopes up lol. I'm still hoping they'll release more SH land so I can transfer some items over :):):)

    So now that this is patched, I'm curious - what happened to all the stuff that you all put on the mountain range land?

    I used the glitch to replace most of my mountains with water just to see what would happen, and it wasn't reverted back to mountains after the update.

    I knew I should've done this before it was patched. I was too scared something bad would happen and my game would be corrupted, but I guess EA realised this and therefore didn't add the mountains back to everyone who exploited this.

    Can you still add your mountains back? Or has nobody tried? :P

    I'll try now. I only removed mountains from my B town. Stay tuned...

    When you move/store the Monorail tunnel, the mountains re-appear. You can't put the tunnel down on top of anything you may have dumped in the empty space.

    I don't know if it's because of this but I can't see the characters, money or event currency. It's all black boxes

    It's back to normal. Closed the game and cleared cache
