Random Changes Level 48

Typical of EA fashion… release another Level into our games while we are in the midst of an Event. WOOHOO!!!


For the basics on Level 48 overview, see the post HERE.

For starting the new Level, you will need to have completed the previous Levels prior to move on. So you need Game Play Level 46& 47 done to move on to 48 (Main Walkthroughs complete). You also need to make sure you XP Level is at 48.

Now to the Random Changes….

First off, with another new level comes more new pricing. This means all items on previous levels will move down in cost. WOOHOO!! Following are the new price changes for the current Buildings in the town. The Base price of the building is in red. The multipliers for the Level will be next to them. You can see how they decrease as a new level hits. 4X, 4X, 3X, 2X, 1.6X, 1.4X, 1.3X, 1.3X. As you can see to top and bottom two are the same, so during those blocks you won’t see a change.

If you want an overall on ALL the pricing, check out our Realty Guide Page (please be patient as it takes a bit to update it all on the main pages).

Kang can no longer “Drink at Moe’s” for a task.


Moon BounceJaney has been added as a Kid that can go for a task too at the Moonbounce. They also made a few other changes before that you may not have notices. They got rid of Willie’s temp task that was locked in there. The Moonbounce actually bounces when you send someone in for a task. Makes me giggle.


Kwik-E-Mart_Tapped_OutI was hoping the Kwik E Mart not paying out issue would have been resolved by now, but it is not. It makes me go back to my original thoughts that it may be going to something else. Or being taken away to help with all the Scratch-R issues players run into.


Krustyland Inventory Storage
If you haven’t sauntered over to Krustyland and the Inventory in a bit, you may want to just to see all the items you CAN put there. Items like the Nerds from CoC and other CoC decorations, Valentines Items, and Easter Items. (Though I still think mine is possessed as I saw three thumbs ups out in the Parking Lot area still. Can’t tap on them…they are just…there. Lol


donut-loadingAnd of course, your constant reminder (as we ALWAYS get comments on this)…check that Confirm Donut Spend. NO ONE wants to lose donuts on accidental sped up tasks or purchases. The new menu, you will find this in any menu by tapping the cog wheel in the top right corner. (You can also reset your sound from here.)


Confirm Donut Notification and Sound Volume



Confirm Donut Spend


Got some technical issues from the new update that we were unable to help with? Try the usual Basic Troubleshooting, and if you need more help…contact EA.

So there are a few random changes. I am still looking to see if anything more pops ups. I will update this post if I do. What do you think of the new stuff? Any changes you see that we have not listed? Let us know.

  1. Forgive me if this has already been discussed. Is anyone else seeing a glitch with the Writers building? I’m getting a payout in taxes on this building every time I leave and come back (instead of every 8 hours).

  2. I’ve been having the same Krustyland glitch its always when I send characters to the k land entrance. So princess p and Krusty greeting park goers and marge complaining about prices. Once the task is complete the thumbs up shows up somewhere in the parking lot and the characters, once I tap the thumbs, start walking around in the parking lot almost like their stuck there.

  3. I’m not sure if this change came with the Christmas Event update or the Level 48 update, but I recently noticed that Kang is now paying out premium cash for his tasks. Whereas previously it was only Kodos that paid premium because you had to spend donuts in order to get Kodos (a premium character). Kang didn’t require donuts to acquire.

  4. My ghost air ship has gone back to being muted. I spent a ton of doughnuts on that thing, and I want to hear something when I tap on it!

  5. I have a glitch where Lurleen and Janey don’t walk when they aren’t doing a task. Anyone else had this?

  6. thanks Bunny i didn’t know I’ll start the walk through thx

  7. I for one an glad the Qwik-E-Mart no longer pays out. Better to just have the Scratch-R mature without having the tiny payput getting in the way.

  8. Level up but can’t find Gold Navy everthing else but that maybe a glitch?

    • It is more than just leveling up your XP. Your Game Play Level has to match too. In other words you need to have finished the walkthroughs from the previous levels to move on. Do you have 46 & 47 done? As stated in this post.

  9. Lurleen’s Country Music Show has been added to the Open Air Stage and takes 12 hrs to complete.

  10. Great article
    This Tapper is almost reached enough XP to cycle thru Level 48 once (and I’m not done with the new Quests on this Level).

    I agree, EA could’ve waited until after New Years to do this (bring more Xmss to Squidport & Krustyland, please!)

    Jingle Jangle everyone 🙂

  11. Similar to the Moonbounce animation being fixed, another change that came with the Christmas Event update (not with Level 48) is the behavior of the satellite dish on the Channel 6 Studio building. It’s back to the way it was before the Easter Event. Once again the dish is now animating when programming is running and stops after you collect the reward for it. It resumes again animating after you program another show. For whatever reason it got reversed after the Easter Event and it is now back to the way it was before then (which I prefer). It makes it easier to know if a program is running by glancing at the building.

    I’m also delighted that the KBBL Radio Station building now has animation with the Christmas Event update too. Similar to the Channel 6 Studio building, it animates (flashing lights and call letters) when a program is running and it’s off when there is no program running. Once again, making it easier to tell if you have a program running or not by quickly glancing at the building.

    • I agree those things make it easier. I hope they keep the radio station animation going after the event ends (since its not a particularly Christmas-y thing anyway).

  12. About those three thumbs ups out in the Parking Lot – I encountered the same behaviour. I continued tapping them, after around 30 taps they were gone and dind’t return since.

  13. You said Willie’s temp task is gone. I have a “make Willie hurt other kids in the moon bounce.” task that never goes away. Is that what you are referring to? How do I get rid of it? Kids have bounced in it!

  14. How do you watch the videos now

  15. What’s up with the writers building? Mine is paying out like crazy even though the timer is still running?

  16. You know what else changed? When you go to the workshop and start a task for one of the characters, it doesn’t scroll back to the top any more. This is very useful because if you weren’t careful you could double tap and the first tap would start the task, scroll up, and in the same place was the dount spending task of speeding the elves, so bam! 30 or more donuts accidentally gone (happened to me twice). Now it just stays in place so there’s no risk

    • Do you have the “Confirm donut spend” option turned on? It’s VERY helpful for avoiding unintentional donut spends.

  17. I think it’s more like: typical EA – releasing new stuff in the middle of an already busy special event, having essential characters required to do both the special event tasks and new character’s quest ie Lisa.

    I often wish EA would introduce new quests involving existing characters interacting. Almost always, you get new characters, do their quest then become just another background character. Meanwhile, when you finish your quests, random tasks appear in the book just to give you a goal.

    • It’s always double edged, if they didn’t, folks would wish they had. EA has been really good on releasing content over the last few months. I do agree I wish characters could interact more and didn’t just wander. I find myself staging things sometimes out of boredom lol.

      • I agree it’s a double edged sword for EA. There are always going to be new people coming to the game and they are going to feel frustrated or left out if they can’t do special events so they need to have those “core” low level characters.

        Am I just really grumpy today because I need Lisa so badly? 🙂 I also wish they would hurry up and give Marge a nice 4 hour Toy Workshop task.

      • Marge got a 4-hour task a couple of days ago (I think…time is a bit of a blur for me these days….). It’s “Make Karaoke Systems.”

    • Actually, in a sense, unless you wanted to wake up in the middle of the night, Lisa wasn’t really needed for the tunnel task during the day, since the best move was to start it tonight shortly before bed and then finish it tomorrow. So I had no problem letting Lisa do her L48 quest thing today. Now, if she’s needed again tomorrow for the L48 quest (which I guess is pretty likely), then I will have a conflict.

  18. Did they change the visitors to KL? Some of the people look new. Of course I did pay much attention after the Halloween removal so maybe it’s been that way for a while?

    • Have you recently leveled up in there? New ones come as you hit certain krust o meter levels in Krustyland.

      • I’ve been maxed out in KL for a while now, shortly after KL was released, as I love amusement parks! 😄 I only go in there now about every 8 hours to pop the balloons since we can still get 5 donuts on occasion. I’ve also got almost 300k tickets, so I usually don’t clear the people or rides, etc unless I have lots of extra time. I remember seeing a lot of duplicate people roaming around before THOH this year, but didn’t really pay attention after the switch back to people. Just looks like some different people were added. Will have to take screenshots when I get some spare time.

    • I’m wondering why you haven’t exchanged some of your 300k tickets for $$? Certainly provides a bit of motivation for clearing people and rides, it’s the only reason I still visit KL (that and the occasional 5 donuts).

  19. I’m still hoping for the day when all of the Clash of Clones stuff can be put into Krustyland. It makes more sense, from a decor standpoint, and takes up so much real estate in Springfield. Nice to know that at least some of it can be moved over. 🙂

  20. I saw those mysterious thumbs up in my Krustyland parking lot too. Weird!

  21. eh, wish id knew i can put confirm donut spend before while sleepy i accidentally spent 30 donuts on some irrelevant task 🙁

  22. question… : for me Quimby’s compund costs 1000000$ even though i received the bonus donuts for leveling up and all that jazz. moreover Lisa doesnt have any task and I wasnt asked to build the Gold navy. Is there something I’m missing? thank you

  23. Thanks for posting this!

    I was glad to see when I checked that, this time, it doesn’t look like they reset the confirm donut spend to off (thank goodness!). But it was a good reminder, because I had definitely forgotten to check and make sure until I read this post.

  24. Something weird I found it when I tap on a neighbors Kwik-E-Mart the regular pop up In our own towns shows up saying marking up prices but no timer or anything else is written. Thought I’d share

  25. Did they change the xp required to level up at all? I was at level 45, logged in after the update, instantly got the level up screen and was roughly 40,000xp into level 46.

  26. “Typical of EA fashion… release another Level into our games while we are in the midst of an Event. WOOHOO!!!”

    More like STOP DOING THAT!!!!
    Since the update my game has been so crashy that doing more than a few actions was impossible forcing me to boot multiple times in a row. Visiting friends crashed the game each time when moving to the next one (and not saving the actions you did so basicly visiting friends doesnt work anymore).

    At first that was… now i’m not even able to boot the game at all anymore, it crashes after EA logo.
    It did boot on my other device, not even crashing when doing actions… until i started the game again an hour later, now it doesn’t boot there anymore either so unless there’s a bugfix within the next few hours i’m losing the ‘finish all task within 24 hours’ bonus.

    Why, why do they need to mess with the game during an event why???

    • Have you tried the fixes we suggest for lagging and crashing issues? They may help. It is more the file for the Event itself is HUGE causing a memory drain.

      Level in midst of an event is typical of them. Many do enjoy it as things start to slow down bout now and they want something to do. Sorry your game is having issues.

      • I tried the usual.
        Logging out and playing anonymously the game does work.
        But even after a complete reinstall my game doesn’t work anymore when logged in.
        Doesn’t crash immediately after starting logo though, its after the loading screen that it crashes.
        I posted this thinking that since it started after updating that many people would be having issues with it, and someone would find a way around the problem, but apparently it’s just me?

  27. Aggravating to think about what I paid for those buildings, and to then see the price dropping and dropping…. (sigh) Well, at least it’s not real money spent at the wrong time in the real-estate cycle! 😛

    • it is real money. Time is money. remember that.

    • Yeah bit you were able to purchase them and complete them immediately, if you want a reduced price wait 2 levels before purchasing.

    • I feel the same way. Specially about the Classy Girls Strip Club. What a drop! I had to grind for three days to get it. I do love the building/character combo though. Her outdoor tasks make me giggle & the building looks neat with the animation of the lights.
