    What are your favourite event? For me, i think it would probably be the baby event, where everyone got turned into babies

    Casino event, whacking day and first halloween event are mine.

    I also liked the first Halloween event where all the kids had trick-or-treating costumes and zombies spawned in the graveyards. My best choice is Stonecutter’s followed by the Casino event and Wild West (loved the iconic movie clips!). I used to enjoy the events that involved collecting and dropping items in neighbor towns, but visiting neighbors is too messed up now.
    All the above and the creepy campsite and crafting. 1st - 3rd THOH event! Loved the events where we got to interact with friends and things wandering around town.

    Sadly I totally missed Stonecutters which I would have jumped around like an idiot if that would come back!!

    And the WW movie clips were awesome! I watched them over and over!

    I do like the dinos, they’ll be fun when my town starts seeing em, but very sad there’s so little real Halloween stuff, I have several huge areas in town dedicated to the spooky, dark, macabre and witchy with little to add to it… of course …

    ……..BUT, no point when they still NEED TO RAISE THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT.

    ……Perhaps a pleasant surprise like RAISING THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT.
    *sigh*

    ……there’s THAT!!!!

    IDK why there's all this zoo stuff. I appreciate the offer, but it's a week too late for me. I just finished rebuilding my zoo, and I'm not about to bother making it larger because they NEED TO RAISE THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT

    I would have bought every one of these zoo upgrades if the item count supported it.

    And I appreciate the desert rocks being made available again. Same here, I want a few dozen of each of these to build a mountain range in my Outlands/desert area. BUT, no point when they still NEED TO RAISE THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT.

    I have two dinosaurs in my Halloween box. Nothing else. So I won't be bothering to acquire either. I'm not going to make a large dinosaur park, because they NEED TO RAISE THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT

    I do hope noob players will enjoy the event. But for veterans, this seems like a letdown. I'm not excited at all. Maybe something during the event will happen to change my mind. Perhaps a pleasant surprise like RAISING THE ITEM COUNT LIMIT.
    *sigh*

    I was about to hop on and see if the item count was raised. If it's still 13k I'm like 300 or so items from maxing.
  • Same here. I expect I'll soon be removing all trees

    That’s what I have already started doing. In fact, it’s inevitable in the game and, in that sense, the game is not very educational because basically cutting down trees is the short-cut (no pun intended) answer to everything.

    You could try the hammack tree to replace normal ones. I've done that with buildings with trees behind.
  • Late to the party I think the uodate is good but would like to have had some halloween stuff. I do like the dinosaurs though.

    I decided to make my own Halloween party scene in the town square. I also always break out the store across the street, just for the month of October, because that's what happens where I live. Halloween shops just appear and then disappear on Nov 1st lol

    Coincidentally almost finishing the chili pepper/turtle tapping game gave it the red border, coool!
  • What would be helpful is when we're searching for these dinosaures is were we had in the past click on something that would point us to where they are. With our Springfields getting bigger it's hard to find these even with the edit mode.

    Anyone who could rate my Halloween area? I think it fits quite well to have Hell placed on an island-looking place down in the corner
  • What’s the point of the little wandering dinosaurs? They yield no cash or points when you crush them. I know you have to crush 15 of them after you earn each prize. Can you even clear them all?

    I think it looks great! Plus you have room for future halloween and scary things you'll acquire in the future.

    So far it seems they're using them one mission to clear 15. But hopefully they're testing to return to past mission styles where collecting wandering characters is more significant. Ive been leaving them to wander. I really wish the other springfielders would run away scared when they are near them. That would be hilarious

    I'll give you 9/10 😜🤣 looks great, I like what you have done. Mine is darted around my town as over they years I've started in one part and a year later I've placed them somewhere else and I couldn't be bothered to move them.

    When they had wandering zombies, they used to turn the regular characters into zombies

    I would say that this year's Halloween event is worse than a joke. It is trash imo.

    The storyline so far for acts 1 and 2 is meh, I mean seriously something like dinosaurs are not something you would normally associate with Halloween.

    The prizes are trash too, all useless junk I have immediately stored away.

    Most of premium stuff for this event seems to be way overpriced barring one or two items.

    Finally what with the lack of free prize tokens along the prize track for at least acts 1 and 2. Damn EA for being so stingy for not allowing players to earn free tokens to unlock stuff the from the Halloween mystery box.

    Terrible Halloween event so far imo.
  • Halloween? Is this supposed to be Halloween? I’d never have known. I’ve been wondering when it was going to turn up!!
    I love my computer...all my friends live in it
