Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Did anyone here get it hit with the rollback bug or the login error?

I got them both. The former back in March. Among other things, it rendered the character shortcut in the upper lefthand corner broken and drastically reduced the IRS clearing radius. With the size of my Springfield and the amount of residents, not having those work means the map takes significantly longer to clear and assign. EA is finally acknowledging the problem, but the fixes are less than ideal. If I rolledback now I'd lose too many characters, buildings, and donuts I've acquired in the meantime. I think I'm just going to suck it up and accept how it plays now, only putting time into it during events.

The login error was frustrating, too. I got that last week. I stopped playing for a few days until I had time to uninstall/reinstall the game on my phone and tablet. Honestly, it felt kind of freeing having an excuse not to play anymore. If it wasn't for my love of the Simpsons I probably would've bailed long ago.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I've only experienced the login bug but the uninstall/reinstall trick fixed it.

No rollback fortunately. I got the login bug but it eventually fixed itself.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Itch and Scratchy event is live. Make sure you unlock all of your land in Krusty Land before you nuke it, that way you will get maximum land tokens.

Yeah, this is going to be an expensive event.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I bit on Scratchy. I've been stockpiling donuts since the last big event (aside from a couple small Vault items).

I'm still downloading updates nearly every time I play, and this one is a little larger, but at least it's somewhat fast. The one before this event was as slow as molasses. I'm glad that now we don't have to sign in every time, though it often warns me I didn't save on my other device, which doesn't exist, so I just ignore that.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Ha! Bort! I really like this trend of events that dive deep into classic episodes. Great prizes, funny stories, this really works.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Hmm, got the update last night, also went into the game this morning, but I can't find a way to kick off the event. I had everyone free at one point. Maybe it didn't start until such and such time?

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Started for me when I logged in after lunch. Nice new chunk of land! Between some recent KEM farming, the 60 free donuts, and Gil's half price deal, I'm sitting pretty for premium purchases. Looking forward to it.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Not sure when or if EA will fix it, but you can currently farm butterfly gardens. They cost $100 cash each (sell back for $25), but they yield 1000xp on placement. If you have the multiplier on plus a decent bonus percentage, it's a really fast and cheap way to farm extra donuts.

Edit: It's already been nerfed.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I unlocked the final prize with one day to spare. As luck would have it, the event started when I was on vacation with no Wi-Fi and weak cell service. I tried to play while grocery shopping, but... 1.4 GB update! I was able to get the 60 free donuts, but that was it for five days. Once I was back, I had to spend donuts to get the premium characters and rush some of their jobs (it only made sense to rush the premium characters, which were twice the payout for the same price), but I should be back on track now.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

D'oh! Forgot to get Sarah Wiggum! Oh, well. 300 donuts is a lot, no matter how great the character. Plus, I went back and forth the whole time so that says something to me.

I'm digging the zoo event. The animals are cool and the zones are interesting. Wish the pandas didn't all look evil, though.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I'm liking the zoo event too. Only thing that annoys me is not being able to get land with money anymore and instead the game switching to the token system. Is there any way to earn tokens other than in the event quests?

Unfortunately not, at least not in any legit ways.


I know a lot of people are happy that Sarah Wiggum is available, but Knifey Spoony, is my favorite thing about this event.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

There's some land I can buy with dollars, and some I can get with tokens. Are the token-only squares ones that have been added in the last update, and I can only buy the old squares with dollars?

The ones with dollars are from an update from over a year ago. The ones with tokens are from the updates in 2018.

I've run out of the land for cash so they may have changed it since. When I still had the old land, you could pay either cash or tokens. All the new land has required tokens and seems likely to be the case from now on. Don't spend tokens until you must.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I generally buy land as I need it, so I still have a lot of squares that take cash, and a lot of tokens. I should probably just buy a bunch of land so I can rearrange my town in a more sensical way.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

The tokens for land is fucking stupid. In general, this game has made the game cash a worthless currency. Why are they limiting land to tokens? Tokens aren't even purchasable with donuts.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

It seems like it's just a way to limit players from buying up all the available land and filling it up, thus needing even more land. If they can control the pace of the game, they can squeeze out the life of the game.

As far as the game currency, it's value is in donut farming. I buy and sell bloodmobiles all the time. I have over 15000 donuts right now.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Wow, that's a lot of donuts! I've been KEM farming but have maxed at around 1000 before spending 300-800 on an event. Do you find Bloodmobiles works better for you? Better than Rat Trap Trucks?
