I think it's just one of those things that you have to keep plugging at, even when you think you don't necessarily need a tile.

    That would be good advice for the early tappers - keep building tiles and putting them in inventory, even if you think you don't need them.

    Bah! The time is what's getting me now, finally over 3 million (took 7 months with some premium items).

    Does take a long time to get all the tiles tbf, but tbh it not worth really worrying about just let it build the tiles as n when, by the times you at now you should have a fair amount of tiles to make something out of your SP :) I have all the tiles and my SP is rammed of rubbish if i'm honest. Least with it taking a while per tile you have time to design it as you see fit or get more of an idea how you want it :)

    Yeah, im on 2 and a half days now. Started doing them again recently when I was rearranging my squidport. Figured it wouldnt hurt to keep going in case we get a squidport expansion. Seems weird to make it this long, especially as theres a bunch of premium squidport items you need plenty of space for.

    That's what I did - a basic design, then I forgot about it, now I am improving Squidport and Krustyland, thinking about the premium items but need space.

    Im hoping we get an expansion, burns casino and whatnot, for no other reason than itd take up some of the sea we currently have nothing to do with.

    I use to have the SP tile build time and prices bookmarked, but they have dropped in price at least once since then.

    I personally think EA doing this with the tiles is a let down. 3 days for one square tile? It's not worth it. I wanted to expand my Squidport due to expanding the water area, but there's no way i'm doing it with the changes that have been made to cost and length of time to get a tile :evil:

    are you complaining that they dropped the prices of the tiles?

    I was happy with the original price of the tiles, that didn't bother me, what i don't like is the length of time to get just one tile.

    Stackables disappeared at the same time as the ability to clean up a neighbor's graffiti or tap on the Simpson home three times in three minutes. No structure can be tapped more than once until the town's owner logs on. Although some buildings can be tapped again as soon as their town is synced, with graffiti they definitely need to clean it and with squidport they definitely need to build a new tile. Thus, no stacking. It also makes inactive neighbors way more obvious, since now they'll literally have nothing to tap on. All kind of a bummer, really.

    The tile glitch fix was probably explained somewhere, I searched a little but was just a little grouchy this morning since I had forgotten to start building another tile... (I should have my signature tattooed on my forearm so I can review it when necessary)

    It sure is obvious when someone isn't clearing their town - I always look for graffiti to determine whether the town was just cleared or not cleared for days.
