So while I sit here going through all your comments, I can’t help but to giggle a little. Only a few months back we started this lil blog with the outlook of “sit back, relax, and share our fun and enjoyment with others”. We have come a long way since.
In that time, we started voicing our opinions over and over. Our “wish lists” if you will of ways that EA could make the game friendlier and easier to use. EA is really taking a look at all we say (Us and YOU) and has now made some pretty cool changes to the game that we have been asking for.
The first big change is the Character Finder. For me, I started out in March of this year and slowly grew my Springfield. I was getting irritated as more and more characters were added into my game that were needed for tasks, but I just could not find them. Or it took what seemed like forever to find them. Frustrating. It got to the point that I even started removing all the roads and switching to pavement all over instead (this also helped with placement of items that can’t go on roads). Then putting small sections and squares of road in key locations to keep my characters to set areas. THAT was getting old too.
Along came EA to the rescue. We now have a really cool feature in our towns of the “Character Locator”. This has really been a great help. As you continually click the locator icon in the top left hand corner, it cycles through separate characters (you will see a magnifying glass by characters just hanging about town).
To make it even better, it also shows you if a character is needed for a task my showing the exclamation symbol by their picture. This makes it really nice if you are unsure who is needed to start the next task.
I’m sure all of you are just as happy as me with this addition.
The other really cool item that EA listened to our requests on is the Neighbor Navigation Street Signs. SO COOL. It was getting frustrating to me when I was on limited time and wanted to hit a few neighbors towns in a time crunch. I had to go to the neighbor home page, select a neighbor, wait for it to load, then do my tasks, then wait for it to back out to the home page, then start again on next neighbor. This seemed to take FOREVER. Because of this, It became more and more difficult for me to access all of my neighbors in BOTH my A & B games. So many times my neighbors were being missed.
Now that’s all changed. It is now just a quick hop to the neighbor home page, jump into the first town, complete my tasks, then a quick click on the right street sign in the bottom left corner while in a neighbor’s town and off I go to the next neighbor.
Forget to finish a task? Just use the left street sign to go back.
Super quick. Super easy. I can now FLY through all those towns.
So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU EA!! Life just got a lil simpler in the TSTO world. What are your thoughts on the new changes?
