Not getting School house Crock Pt. 4 quest (Willy's shack quest)

Sometimes you need to have multiple people off of tasks at the same time to trigger certain missions (i.e. Bart, Lisa, and Willie). I don't know the specific setup for this one, but try and time it so all characters are available for assignment at the same time, and that usually resolved the quest issues for me.

    I have everyone off tasks and still nothing comes up. I only have some side things like Scorpio and harvesting stuff. I can't seem to get any of the main quests. I've built all the required buildings and now I'm two levels higher than I should be for the School house Crock Pt. 4 quest. I'm on the phone with EA as I type this so hopefully it gets sorted out.

    Try having out everyone out at the same time & complete all quests regardless of who gives it to you. Some quests don't pop up until every thing else is taken care of.

    For instance, lets say you gotta send homer to the quick-e-mart for an hour. Send the rest of the characters for hour long jobs and come back, so when you come back to finish it off & collect from everyone, every one will be free again.

    This is what I have always done and I'm level 20 with all building & characters unlocked and all quests done.

    As of right now I have no quests and everyone is off a task. Nothing comes up. I'm already level 13 and the willy shack quest is a lvl 10 quest. Every main character has done every single available task (eventhough it might not have been an actual quest) and yet still nothing comes out. It's like all the quests are tapped out.

    What was the last task Skinner did? He's the one that will give you the task. Once you build the Gulp N Blow, Skinner should start doing tasks until that one pops up. If not, maybe you missed something else.

    I have a gulp n blow, and I believe the last actual quest he had was to go bird watching for 24 hrs. I don't know what I could possibly miss if I have the required buildings and nobody else is offering me any other quest.

    In my game, as soon as the Gulp N Blow was built he immediately wanted to do the crossing guard task. Once that was done, he sent the kids to school and was a hall monitor.

    Yes I believe he completed those. I've made Skinner do every single task since this problem first happened but he doesn't have any other quests for me. He definitely did those two quests at one point or another.

    I am having the EXACT same problem. Only tasks showing up are harvesting, tax collecting, etc. All characters are available at the same time. Last school related task I received was sending Lisa and Milhouse to school. Very frustrating.

    Hmmmm, must be a glitch then. I know this is not the answer you're looking for. But it seems you're gonna have to wait til they release the next content update which should include some bug fixes. Hopefully its released soon.

    The only problem I'm experiencing is major lag & lock ups & occasional crashes. My game was running smooth up until I decided to upgrade to the newest version. Biggest mistake I ever did.

    Glad to see I'm not alone with this issue. Was starting to think it was only me. Last night I was tinkering around and briefly thought I had actually reset Skinner by sending him to monitor the halls then putting the school back in my inventory only to put it back out again, but alas to no avail. Basically what would happen is Skinner would pop out with a quest notification over his head, but as soon as I'd tap him the game would crash and close. I know EA is fail, but damn, they really need to get their **** together.

    What I had to do is send Lisa and Milhouse to school- it is not a quest, but if you pull down the task for them you will see the task. Do that and it should trigger the rest of the quest... good luck!! Now how do I trigger the power plant quests?

    Please, if you figured out how to trigger the power plants quest, let me know. I'm stuck in that one.

    So I've been playing the game for about 4 days now and for some reason I am not getting the School house Crock Pt. 4 quest from Skinner. He just never seems to offer it. I'm also lvl 11 and have Springfield Elementary and I meet the prerequisites for Willy's shack. None of the other main characters seem to offer me new quests either. Is there something that I'm missing?

    Does anyone know if there is a fix for this??? I am now at level 12. I have left the game a lone for a while to see if anything happens with Skinner, but nothing happens. Please Help!!!

    Same thing happened to me.

    What I did to solve it was send Milhouse & Lisa back to school. This unlocked that quest which I had already finished and didn't appear in the quest list.

    Yep the fix for this 1 is to send Lisa and Milhouse to school, it should pop after that.

    Sometimes it is slow though, like I remember when I got Milhouse , the quest didn't pop up til I was 3 lvls over the requirement, and had everything else completed

    Try getting all the characters to be free (not doing any quest) at the same time and then it could pop
