Stonecutters are Here! (Updated & Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who controls the British crown? Who keeps the metric system down? We do, we do!
Who keeps Atlantis off the maps? Who keeps the Martians under wraps? We do, we do!
Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do, we do!
Who robs cavefish of their sight? Who rigs every Oscar night? We do, we do, we do!’

The Stonecutters have arrived in Springfield!  Yes, that’s right after a year and nearly 9 months of TSTO EA has FINALLY brought the secret society to our Springfields!

    • They, more than likely, have a hacked game. As you can see from what other players have said in the comments, if you get more than 1 of something and it’s unique it stays in your inventory forever (part of the game coding). The only way to have more than 1 of something that’s unique (like the lodge) it’s more than likely they’re played a modded game.

  10. I have a really annoying bug in the game. I collected enough emblems to get the parchment and then placed. However I play the game on two devices and since I switched every time I start the game I get the pop up that I’ve won the parchment. It won’t register it on the the screen or give me the next item which I now have enough emblems for. How do I fix this problem?

    • I just updated the glitch post…

      http://tstoaddicts.com/2014/06/04/glitch-number-1s-daily-tasks-disappeared/

      In the meantime try this…look on the calendar I made to see the time frames for the tasks (they go in order 1 to 4 for the day), then using that…go to the tasks list I have below and then you can just locate the characters on those tasks and see who has one of those random task in there lists to send them.

      For instance, today is 1 hr/ 2hr/ 2hr/ 4hr…so find the tasks in those brackets and see if your character can be sent without tapping on Number 1.

      Let me know if that works.

  17. This is getting frustrating. Ea closed my case because I had an old resolved case with the same issue that was fixed by updating my phone software. The new one is “resolved” and old one is still closed. Problem is the last update issued keeps prompting and I can’t play until I download it (daily, sometimes twice daily). Phone software is up to date, I’ve tried the troubleshooting tips and nothing. :(

      • Hmmm….the steps may be same for the two. Did they say why closed? Or just tagged it closed as “resolved”. I am also wondering if you should seek help on the forums. The techs look there (not the customer support that manages chat and email). They are a lil better at helping out.

Didn’t explain that and told me to do all this on my iPad and aren’t responding anymore. It just says my case was closed. I talked with apple and short of setting my phone back to factory settings I’ve tried everything else. Ea also said they think its a memory leak problem but tsto is the only app with problems and the apple rep said it should effect everything, not just one. More or less, not their problem. Maybe I can do out my husbands old phone and hope it works so I can play this event because I really don’t want to lose everything.

    Like

    • Please take a look at my Spy on neighbor post as it explains you only get 60 taps every 24hours to get the Emblems, so it depends where you were just before you started the game. If you just started your 24 hour window and did not tap a single neighbor before opening the Spy feature, you have 60 taps to grab up to 60 Emblems total. If you used them to get money or used them up BEFORE the spy feature was unlocked…you lost them til it resets on the next 24 hour window.

      If you tapped all last night or earlier before the event…you again need to wait till your 24 hours reset to get the 60 Emblem option.

      • OK…what tasks exactly is it you are looking at? There is a main questline “Game of Stones” and a LOT of mini side quests going on all over in the event. The 4 daily tasks are a side mini quest for Number 1.

        After you finish Part 3 of Game of Stones… you will have Lisa’s side quest launch for “The Secret of the Cut Stone”….send her off to that first quest (she needs to be free to trigger it). At the same time you will also have Homer trigger the mini side quest of “Quash Those Who Trespass Against Us” (Make sure Homer is free to trigger it.) The Quash is the one that will trigger the Robed Order to come into your town.

        So, Get past Game of Stones Part 3 and get the “completed” pop up. Start Lisa on her side quest (first task is Look for Clues for 24hrs), once she is on her way…then Homer (if he is free) should trigger the Robed Order questline.
