    when tapped the Spuckler kids has animations now
    Whitney: Plays a bass like instrument
    Dubya: Sits down and plays a makeshift drum.
    Birthday: Plays a coat hanger.

    Err, they've always done that for me... :?

    Since we were temporarily on the topic of shiny Pokemon, I thought you all should know I caught a shiny Combee in Pokemon Y the other day! And I have no one to tell because I don't visit any Pokemon forums and my wife doesn't know what a shiny is.

    I only have Whitney, but previously I only saw her animation when collecting cash from her. Now the animation plays every time I tap her, just like when tapping the yeti to see him sweep.

    I can appreciate that! I don't have Y, but I have a lot of the older ones...I hadn't played any in almost 10 years, then last summer I got like 5 of the newer titles and started again. I still love those games!

    The 1 in 200 odds probably means those are the odds, per tap, every time. Not that you're likely to get 1 in 200 taps. If that makes sense...
    exactly. just like Shiny pokemon

    Oh I understand what that means. Each one is an independent chance. Basically, the odds of NOT getting a donut for each chance are 99.5% if it's 1 in 200. The odds of getting zero donuts for 300 taps is the product of each independent observation (I'm forgetting stats terms, been a while since I took a class), which comes out to 22.2292%. Which means that supposedly, if you visit 100 friends every day, you should get at least one donut 77.7708% of the time.

    If the 1 in 200 odds are accurate.
    So per 870 possible taps daily, on average how many doughnuts would you say we well get/day?

    Where do you get the 870 taps daily? 100 friends x 3 taps per friend = 300 taps daily. Which means that you should average out to 10-11 donuts per week (.5% x 2100 taps). It will likely be a little higher for some lucky folks, a little lower for people like me. Also, uncertain whether it's 1 in 200 per tap or per total visit to a friend.

    It's 100 and 1 100 friends and other SP

    Have you added friends recently? When you start playing there are some quests about adding new neighbours that give you donuts.

    i had over 60 friends since Xmas event, the popup said i got the donuts for finishing the quest, which i think is one of the last few quests to be done (only have some snyder / courthouse quests still to be done at current)

    Count your friends. The Other Springfield appears to count as one of the 100. AFAIK I have a full friends list and I have 100 towns to visit including OS.

    You know what's strange? My donut purchase confirmation was still on, even though I didn't change it. Accidentally hit a hurry up on the Simpson house, and it ask me to confirm this morning. I was pleasantly surprised by that.

    I have 33 pages with 3 friends and 1 page with 2 friends... 33x3=99, +2 makes 101, the first one is The Other Springfield

    As for amount of FP, one stars with 10 FP for x amount of taps and like in the valentines event after x amount you go down to less FP for y amount of taps, so there are several hundred FP to be gotten without adding the FP for vandalised buildings in your own Springfield

    That's odd, because I have 33 pages with 3 friends and 1 page with 1 friend, and last time I tried to add someone it said my friends list was full.

    You should be able to add 1 more if this is the case that last time could mean theirs is full

    Are you on iOS? Because on my device (android) I was getting nuthin from them before this update. I tried to click on them and got no result. It was as if I was clicking on a shrub. But more frustrating. Or maybe it was something wrong at my end? Now I get the animations just fine post-update!

    No, he probably finished Herman's questline. That one rewarded donuts as the 30th level special and to "make up" for the "poor" and "confusing" storyline.
