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...

Lame...

 

I'm just going to put this out there... You can pick up a 3DS pretty cheap on eBay if anyone wants to join us playing Animal Crossing!

^ I'm actually contemplating selling my DS and getting a 3DS to join in on the fun.

 

My latest mystery box contained a whopping $250. Even with this update I'm logging in every other day or so to do stuff. All interest in this game is coming to an end with lack luster updates and nothing that requires me to pay attention more than once a day max. Granted if they ever do another whacking day esq. update I'll gladly pay attention again but until then it's just there.

^Yeah, I liked Whacking Day. Sure, it was a bit repetitive, but it was fun to trade eggs and help other people try and get to their snake goal. Now there's nothing really going on. I get that they want you to buy donuts, but I don't see the point in spending money on this game if they're not going to add anything except stuff that is there to try and make you buy/spend donuts!

 

What's a good price for a 3DS on Ebay? I know nothing about these systems, but Animal Crossing looks like it would be a lot of fun to play.

I am currently on the 16th boardwalk tile which is a 36 hour build.

 

When that's done, then you have 20 peeps dine at The Frying Dutchman for 8hrs. (I had all but 1 of the peeps in there. For some reason, Herman didn't have the prompt.) Then Homer and CBG pig out there for 36hrs. That's where I am now.

 

I too, will admit that this update is a bit of a bore, due to the time constraints. Been checking the EA boards - apparently, to complete the boardwalk takes (minimum) 305 days. (That's w/o spending any donuts). In the grand scheme, there are quite a lot of people who aren't maxed out, like some of us (the ones getting bored) are. So, those people have plenty to do. Us (the bored ones) can just basically pile up $$ and XP. (My next rollover is 723,000+ XP)

 

I'm kind of optimistic about all of this. Some of us wanted expansion, so that we had new things to do and build. Well, we got it (though I'll admit 30% of my Springfield is still slums). I'm thinking in the long run, Krustyland could be a similar expansion - expanded game board, land specific buildings (& rides), decor, etc...

 

The optimism lies in the hope that next update (if time lines remain consistent) comes in 2-4 weeks, which would include new character(s), buildings, tasks and decorations. Tasks for Wolfcastle was in the early raw files of Squidport, so that is a possibility. Then, we'd be in a bind deciding which things to do first, and which things we can do concurrently.

 

So, I'm still holding out hope (and stockpiling buttloads of $$$!).

I am still going to play, but I won't be spending any money on hurry ups. I usually am able to check on my town a few times a day. Yes, the boardwalk build cycle is quite insane, but I guess I will just have to live with it. At least I have Animal Crossing as well to keep me busy.

Did anybody get asked for their age last time you logged in? Random and weird.

 

Yeah. Their FB page (or somewhere else, I don't remember) mentioned they would be doing this as a one time only thing, having to do with underage, or unsupervised children playing.

 

No big deal.

I really hate this update. It's absolutely killed the game for me. Anytime an update came out I loved all the previous characters and new buildings, but the way this one worked out I just have no excitement anymore. I totally understand them wanting to extend the amount of time the updates last, but they went way off the deep end with this one. I'll admit that I have said numerous times that the updates are completed too soon, but this is the polar opposite of that. Make the pieces every 8 or twelve hours, or make them cost a lot more, or just make the building and required tasks longer. I'm all for making money, but I'm not going to spend doughnuts to speed up a task, I'd rather spend them on buildings or things like that. Previously, in between updates I would log in about 2 times a day, and tons more during an update. Now, I log in maybe once every 2 days, and that's after a major update. It's just really annoying.

^ I have to agree with everything that Joey said.

 

BUT....

 

Joey got me to thinking, and I decided to do a little research on when, etc... the next update was coming.

 

Apparently, the general consensus from the various boards (EA, TSTO) (i.e. people that are in the know) is the next update, level 31, could come out any minute. Probably tomorrow. It's set to include Wolfcastle, and his mansion (among other things). McBain is also mentioned in the raw files dialogs, but no proof of him - though most expect him to be there, with the other characters dialog being the proof.

 

Most of what I've read about Squidport, is the same complaints that we have here. The best explanation is that Squidport, though unique, is basically just a game board expansion. Almost like a secondary town, to work on at your leisure, in between other levels and updates. That's why it was so huge (content wise).

 

Now for the GREAT NEWS!

 

Looks like Krystyland is coming: (Possibly level 32)

 

Krustyland

 

Notice that the "Tooth Chipper" IS in there!!!!

 

Though *I* imagine that it would be akin to the Squidport update, and a game board expansion as well. I do kinda hope that that isn't the case. Hopefully, gameplay will be encouraged once again, as I do like this game, especially since I have limited artistic skills.

Ok - I got an automatic update this morning, fairly large (105mb).

 

Is this the update I was talking about?

 

I didn't notice anything different, except that there are 4 new items in the build menu, which I can't find. Perhaps it's due to the fact that I have all my peeps on 12hr tasks.

 

Can anyone confirm/deny the update?

I got the update with nothing as well. However, about an hour ago they said on Facebook that they will be unlocking the new content soon. Hopefully, that means a few hours, and not days.

 

EDIT: Update is now live. There's a few 4th of July stuff.

 

Money:

 

American Flags is $5600, Nighthawk Diner with a character is unlocked on "Rockets Red Glare Part 4."

 

Doughnuts:

 

Lincoln's Cabin -150 doughnuts, also unlocks Abraham Lincoln

Pinwheel Firework - 30 doughnuts, .75% bonus

Box of Fireworks - 50 doughnuts, 2.25% bonus
