Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I'm pretty cash poor because I need to regulate myself better with the Kwik-E-Mart farming technique.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

The Halloween event was lazily put by EA. Almost 3/4 of the crafting items are repeats from past years Halloween events and the lack of storyline and adding characters to do task shows that EA may be reaching its end with this game.

I agree it was lazy but after cleansing the monsters, they will drop very neat bonus items. The railroad 5 donut bonus seems to extend for the duration of the event so it may be good idea to get Lisa’s recycling plant or always keep your characters doing the railroad task

eta: I am waiting to purchase a very special, iconic character from the Treehouse episodes.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah, I was disappointed to see Werewolf Flanders as the final crafting item.

I've been cranking out railroad stuff constantly. It would make sense if they switched it just for the event.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Oddly, one of the tasks on my taskbar (cryogenics part 2) involves a character (Jasper) who I don't even have. I thought that kind of stuff was filtered out, but maybe not.

Same here, with two premium characters that I don't have.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Weird, my version of the app is still letting me play the Halloween event and didn't even offer me the Thanksgiving update.

I think the update was forced today on all users.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

In the past they've made premium characters very affordable. I think I got Barney for something like 50 donuts for the space event. Nothing like that here for Jasper?

I have no idea what some of the prizes I got from the wizard event even are. Is that a broken via stop bench?! I've got 50 of them.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah, they should've put Jasper in the vault if they were going to try to force him on people. He's expensive because he comes with the community center, and I've thought about getting him because he was in the kickball event, etc. I should probably just suck it up and buy him along with the cobblestone path, but the latter would require some work on my town, which I've let lag for a while now.

I placed all the wizard prizes at the beginning because they were new and cool, but now I have tons of them.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Want to you all need Jasper for? He doesn't show up for my Thanksgiving tasks at all.

There are a bunch of characters they need to update to be sent on tasks with the rest if them via unemployment office, mostly from the spy stuff.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Grandpa and Jasper are required for a Cryogenics quest. The EA forum says this or something like it has randomly popped up for some people.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Huh, weird.

In other news, I havemt updated the OP in forever. Would it be helpful for me to do that, at this point, and if so, what would be helpful?

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I think updating the list of active and inactive players might be useful.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Tons of stuff available in the mystery boxes. I tried the outdoors one a couple times in hopes of getting the gorge or the sign but no luck so far. Then I tried the character one and got Powell Motors with the character, so that's pretty good. I'm not buying the gold one, though (I got the Mars colony from the free one).

It officially starts Tuesday the 5th. But the pre-Christmas update just gave me Kang and Kodos for free!

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I recently started KEM farming after resisting for a while. I should have started earning donuts this way a long time ago. Wow.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I inquired about that here earlier this year and it's been amazing. Basically, it's farming Kwik-E-Marts for donuts and it's simple:

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah I earn 20-25 donuts a day, roughly, depending on how I often I log in.

After saving up a lot, I turn around a buy a strings of mystery boxes (the mr. burns variety) and that will increase my percentage by 9% (with all the billboards and news vans) for 56-88 donuts per run. That then nets me more donuts per KEM farming.
