    I'm guessing it was a limited questline. It's probably been disabled. Like if you were midway through the Halloween questline, I think that one just deletes as well.

    I know others didn't have this restriction (like last years 4th of July), but I think most of the recent Holiday ones, and even tie-ins now have time restrictions.

    I'd have to say you are probably correct. Limited time episode tie-ins and holiday or event dialogue only lasts so long after the event ends now. I know that did not use to be the case, but it probably changed. I remember reading some people saying they still had their cool brown house questline open, almost 2 years after it started.

    My only other question with the Barney Plow King questline, is maybe does it also depend on the Homer Mr. Plow questline as well? Do you also have Homer's skin? Have you already completed the Homer Mr. Plow tasks?

    I had Mr. Plow when he came out in early 2013 (before his rerelease in Holiday 2013 event). So mine were done.

    They should be entirely separate, unless the the FAQ says Mr. Plow triggers Plow King questline.

    Yeah I finished the Mr. Plow quest back during the Christmas event when I got the skin. I have been checking around on other TSTO sites, and have seen the same question come up with no answer. I saw one person that was told to post on the forums, as was I. Still would be nice if I could get help from the actual game developers.

    Yeah I got what you're saying. But through most of the Stonecutters event I've left everyone without a task just so I wouldn't be given a task to do with a particular character and have to wait for them to become available. So everyone has been available at one point or another. I was gonna try to store my Bowlarama, then place it again to see if it worked, but my game is lagging and I accidentally sent Homer on a 4 hr task. D'oh!!!

    Storing the Bowlarama is another thing to try for sure :)

    Being free at one point or another is why i was saying making sure they all free at same time, but just an idea, sometimes when they all free visit KL and come back that also tends to kick quests off. Another idea is to close the app down and reload it, sometimes helps kicks things off.

    Just throwing some ideas out there to try and help :) Granted they not working to well at the moment :lol:

    I have no idea since I don't have Barney, but, here is my shot,....

    Put Homer in his corresponding skin. Recall the show!

    On a related note... Does anyone know of there is a limit to the number of task in the task bar? If so, maybe you just have to clear some out. Yet then they keep filling in with new ones, and not the one you want?

    Well Homer is walking around in his Mr. Plow duds and Barney is walking around dressed as the Plow King. Nothing. Also I don't even have any tasks currently except for the Stonecutters bonus task for donuts and that's it.

    You could try and reset the app but its possible the quest line might have been limited time?

    Dunno, I cant remember it exactly, but wasnt he clearing snow and competing with Homer at Christmas time etc... Wouldnt make much sense as a questline right now...

    this is true but it would be the same as our new Stonecutter Disco Stew, Jasper, etc that we have won.. when I get Disco Stu in 2 months or so, the Stonecutter Quest wont make much sense, but it will still activate..


    OP, i would E-Mail them again, in the same convo even, telling them that its a broken part of the Game that you need them to Force through or reset on their side, for you.. Its been done before and it will be done again =)

    I think he was referring to the Season rather than the event... Stonecutters exist all year round, snow and Christmas doesn't... :mrgreen:

    Like I said, I'm pretty sure the quest is tied to the skin, not the time of year.

    I don't know if it will help but check out
    tstoaddicts.com/2013/12/19/turbo-tappin-christmas-2013-wheel-prize-plow-king/

    At the end of the comment section someone was having this issue and the advice was to "hard close the game".

    But I'm guessing you already have tried that.

    Not sure what you mean by "hard close game". If you mean to go into my settings and force stop the application, then yes I did that. Otherwise you may need to enlighten me.

    Yeah, that's what I assume Alisa meant.

    I've known your frustration on these quests not starting. My quest to build the hospital seemed to take forever. I don't know what finally triggered it.

    I too have recently bought the bowlarama & can't get the quest line to start, then found this below, is there a way to take the skin off Barney & put it back in to your inventory???

    Scroll down half way to the heading called Plow King, it says not to take the skin out of your inventory and on to Barney until you do a certain part of the Barney quest line - how annoying I didn't see this before!!!!

    It's most likely tied to Christmas like Mr. Plow had a Christmas quest line but disappeared afterwards so it's likely that Plow King was to I had gotten barney after Christmas event ended and never got the quests. Also plow kings plow wouldn't affect it since it isn't tied to the quest

    as far as I know you can only start the quest during Christmas time if you had started the quest and then decided to postpone it for 7 months the quest would still work but if you could not start the quest back at Christmas time the quest will not trigger unless it's Christmas time and the christmas update is upon us
