    I'd like one of the crooks and the mustached police man for my town.
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.
  • Can someone splain me when/why the "Crooks cleared" screen comes up? I don't see a pattern for when it pops up, seems random and I'm not convinced it reflects crooks that I actually tapped. Also I had it declare no one helped me yet it gave me 10 plunder.

    don’t have an explanation for that, it has come up a few times for me after clearing and before i can reset event currency earners and a few times logging into the game. i have only had names listed one time and have neighbors that have dropped

    When a neighbor finds a crook that you dropped in their town, then the box comes up showing that he (Liamchandler in your case) helped you. If you drop crooks in neighbors towns and they don't clear them in 4 hours (assuming this time frame as similar to other events), you see that nobody helped you, but you still get credit for dropping them.

    Hope that helps.

    yeah, in theory but this feature is glitched also. I have not gotten notification that i dropped in either of my towns that i dropped or cleared. i have 2 towns and am neighbors with each town, when i drop one and clear it in my “neighbor” town i still haven’t received notifications in either town

    yeah, in theory. i have 2 towns that i have accounts with that i am friends with, i drop 1 in each town and clear the crook from each town. when the screen comes up later there is no notifications for both towns

  • Robbers in your town drop pencils when killed and a splash screen tells you who dropped the mask in your hood. (Masks turn into robbers). Masks are dropped by the agents you kill in your town.
  • Really? Robbers and pencils?

    This popped up in my other town I have an account in after I gave my main 3 crooks, reset and switched accounts. Maybe you get the message after you reset the game provided they have been caught?

    Thank you @Donna4612 I have been paying closer attention and your explanation seems to be correct.

  • how come in some neighbors towns the mask icon (top right) is not there at all?
    first i thought it was that they wre having the drop the fine art building glitch but they have the building placed and was able to tap agents, then i thought their town was full but no full town screen and i still had masks avalible to drop and by now these neighbors should be far enough in the task track to recieve them and i even looked at the last time they played and their time was all with in the last 12 hours

    If there is no mask icon in the top right, that neighbour has either not updated or not progressed far enough to receive crooks, most likely the former. You can verify this by going to the friends summary and looking at how much event currency they have. Just because they've logged in recently doesn't mean they've played recently (may have logged into a different game) or they may not have downloaded the update yet and are playing without the event.

    thanks for that, i hadn’t thought to look at the neighbors currency but just the amount of time since last played. I just checked and they had very few pictures but i checked last played time also and it has been a few days but considering they had some pics they are not suffering from the freezing issue

  • Anyone else notice Creepers going missing? Wife dropped 10 in my town and I only received 1… scanned town back and forth in X-ray mode 5x and not another to be found.

    No icon in top right means that neighbor did not update to this event.

    You should also notice their counter in the friend's scroll screen is still at zero. They are not playing. I have several noob neighbors who've obviously abandoned their town. But their towns load the fastest so i keep them for collecting the agents.

  • Mine keeps saying I have no justice agents or crooks, but I find crooks in my town. Must be only noticing the agents.
  • Does anyone want to drop in crooks for me “Nollywoodbolly40”
  • On the "Crooks Cleared!" screen (like one posted above) resources gained for paintings are always 0. Are we missing something?
