The Simpsons Tapped Out


Recommended Posts

Looks like every new squidport tile you make will get more expensive and takes more time. Second tile costs 450 and takes 2 hours.

 

Very true. So far the pieces have been built in, 1,2,4 and I'm now nearing the end of an 8-hr build. I did notice that the price also went up, but not specific prices. I've now got the Houseboat, and it came with the Sea Captain. He did not cost any donuts as possibly reported on the EA boards.

 

EDIT - My next piece of "Boardwalk" costs $2500, and is a 12-hr build.

 

I haven't unlocked anything else.

 

So far, Seaport looks good, but I have a feeling unlocking everything could take awhile. I guess that's good, as it would encourage game play. Time will tell.

Its actually good to see them add content that could take a while to get. Kind of the whole point of a game to have some "goals" to look forward to.

 

I noticed some of the "quest" items also appear under premium items. Since its been so long since there has been anything really to "quest" for, are those going to cost donuts or just quests? Since it doesn't say how many donuts they are going to cost.

Just started building the Itchy and Scratchy store. I am glad that they seemed to have made it take longer. I'm thinking we'll be able to get boardwalk pieces with tasks as well, otherwise it'll take months to build up the boardwalk.

Has anyone gotten past building the Itchy and Scratchy store yet? I have all of my non-premium characters free and nothing is triggering yet???

 

Yeah, that was a problem for me too. I put the Itchy & Scratchy store in my storage after it was built, pulled it back out and it triggered Bart and Millhouse to shop at the store for 4 hours. A weird glitch i think.

I did the same thing, but it never asked me to have Bart and Milhouse do anything. The dialogue seemed to repeat, and then it asked me to build the next thing.

Apparently, theres a glitch with building the boardwalk pieces and people visiting. If someone taps your boardwalk piece, it makes it disappear, and they will now only get money and XP. In other words, DO NOT click on someone else's boardwalk pieces because they will lose them. You would think it would speed up the task like with the farm, but it doesn't.

I seriously think I'm done with this game....for two reasons:

 

1. Animal Crossing is out, and I'm just reminded how much I wanted Simpsons to be like AC, and now I don't need it to be!

 

2. The Whacking Day event was "ok", but I think it was overly monotonous and it kind of started my rapid decline on wanting to play the game. This update just seems downright stupid, making it nearly impossible to do anything and it's taking forever.

 

I feel like they created an update that takes a long time to purposely stall the people who have leveled up quickly, which is really lame. You don't punish players for doing well.

 

I haven't turned on Simpsons in 3 or 4 days now...

^I absolutely agree. Since it is taking so long to accumulate boardwalk pieces, I am basically having to plop down buildings on top of each other and it looks like absolute crap. I even had to put the Itchy and Scratchy store in my inventory, just so I could start the Frying Dutchman build and continue on with the progression. Such a terrible update!

 

Oh, and once you get past 16 boardwalk tiles (I think it is 16) it changes to 36 hours!!! I think I am working on #13 right now, so it will take me 4 days to have enough space to bring the Itchy and Scratchy store back out.

Totally agree. They always seem to go to extremes with this game. They either have an update that can easily be done in just a day or two, or ones like the Whacking day which were way too monotonous, as Robb pointed out. I understand that they want to make the levels last longer, but this is ridiculous. I honestly don't play it any more than before the update. I log on ever day or two, spend 5 minutes, then I'm done. I wouldn't be surprised if they shorten the boardwalk building times in a future update. I know it's all about getting people to buy doughnuts, but this is ridiculous.

Yeah, i'm in this boat too. Boardwalk pieces take way too long to build. My thought is the same as Eric, as I have a ton of crap piled on and you can't even see some of it properly. Boardwalk pieces should just be free like roads and you just have to buy all the buildings, decorations more water, etc. Now when I see a notification pop up on Tapped out I'm like "meh, I'll do it sometime" instead of clicking on it right away.

The thing I kinda like about this update is how long it takes. With the wacking day update, I was stressing out and updating my town every four hours of every day. With this... I can still set every character for 24 hours and just check it every night. Though the boardwalk pieces do suck. I wish I could just make my own boardwalk and just have to worry about buying land. Otherwise it's a pretty weak update but still playable to my schedule. If I had a 3DS I would probably drop this for animal crossing though.

I wouldn't have minded if they did the boardwalk pieces every 8-12 hours. That would have been not fast enough so I'd be done in a week, but not long enough where i'd be waiting to finish for a month. Or, I wouldn't have minded if they would have made them really expensive. It just sucks having a bunch of stuff, but no where to put any of it.

Yeah, the timing for getting boardwalk boards is really dumb and really kills my enjoyment of the game, moreso than the constantly needing to be checking on my rocks and logs and visiting neighbors in the Whacking Day event to get everything did. Now I'm at the point where it takes 36 hours for a board to be ready, and it will keep increasing in time the more board tiles you need, up to 3.5 days! They definitely didn't plan it well.

 

It does seem an update came recently and rumors are that clicking on a neighbor's board tile no longer resets it for them, but I'm not taking any chances.

So yesterday I get a Mystery Box and it actually had 10 donuts in it! Yay!

 

Then I log back in later, and they've mysteriously vanished, as it looks like everything has re-set since my last visit. I get another Mystery Box. I get a fence. Yeah.

 

Thanks, EA, for your quality servers...
