Random Changes Level 52

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Oh EA… you just do not think we are busy enough? Nope! Not at all! So, why not… THROW ANOTHER LEVEL AT US!! BAM!!!

For the basics on Level 52 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 47 done to move to 48. 48 to 49. 49 to 50… and so on (Main Walkthroughs complete). You also need to make sure you XP Level is at the same Level if not higher (it is common for the XP to be higher than Game Play usually).

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.

Level 52: 4X Cost
Level 51: 4X Cost
Level 50: 3X Cost
Level 49: 2X Cost
Level 48: 1.6X Cost
Level 47: 1.4X Cost
Level 46: 1.3X Cost
Level 45: 1.3X Cost
(Level 44-1: No Multiplier)

As you can see to top two highest levels and bottom two are the same, so during those blocks you won’t see a change. Think of it this way. When you buy a car brand new, it is at its top dollar mark up cost. Overtime, the car depreciates in value and continues to until it hits the bottom or base cost. Same here. The Buildings are expensive brand new, but in time after more NEW things are introduced, its originally cost will drop.

If you want an overall on ALL the pricing, check out our Realty Guide Page.


Remember…the BASE price is indicated in Red.  The current price is in black. Don’t confuse the base price (in red) with the current price (in black).

George Washington hunt jebediahGuiseppe avoid losing fingers

Some of the Characters didn’t really make much of a sound when they were brought into the game. They still do not quite make that much noise, but George Washington & Guiseppe do make some noise now when tapped.



Mutant Clone 3.2 Mutant Clone 2.1 Mutant Clone 1.1

It looks like the timers on the Clones are back to the same as in Act One. So now you will see them Spawn every 10 minutes instead of the 5 minutes.

Another change that is more a visual one, you will now ONLY see the Clone Bobs in Neighbors towns instead of them and the Mutant Veggies.

(If you look at the images here, you will also see the lil actions the Clones do if you let them stop for a bit. One Pops like Popcorn, One dances, One rubs butter all over himself. Lol.)


Many Players have been vocal on this one. Essentially, when a task has “priority” on the list it is highlighted in Yellow and appears at the top of the Characters available tasks when you go in to assign them jobs.

After a while, those tasks tend to lose their “priority” and get shuffled into the appropriate time slot for the Characters instead. This has been going on now a while in the game, but just wanted to touch on it again.

In short, don’t worry. The tasks are still there, just being moved down in the “priority” line to the other tasks. So make sure you are sending them out on the task you actually want them to do.



This was introduced a few Levels back, so I am just updating it for the newest Level 52.

First it’s important to note that the higher the level you are the more cash you’ll get for your donuts.  Here’s the breakout at Level 52:

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_1 – $12,250 will cost you 9 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_2– $61,250 will cost you 30 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_3 – $147,000 will cost you 65 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_4 -$245,000 will cost you 100 donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_5 – $735,000 will cost you 285 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_6 – $1,470,000 will cost you 550 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_7 $2,940,000 will cost you 1,000 Donuts

Money Safe 1600 Donuts to Cash$4,900,000 will cost you 1600 Donuts

Again this will vary depending on your level.  The above numbers reflect it if you’re on Level 52.  As you increase your level over level 9 you’ll start to increase the payout for each one.  We won’t go into too much detail with this because we honestly do not encourage you to do this in your games. It is a waste. Do not spend donuts for in game cash…it’s just not worth it (at any level).

Now for that one thing we will continually keep reminding you to check 😉

CONFIRM DONUT SPENDdonut-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.)

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. I got Stuck at eight money dumps. Two for burns yet to do.

  2. Jsander321 (Julie)

    I always get confused when you talk about the base price shift of buildings with level changes. Black is current price which now seems pricier then the red which is base price. To me it looks like the price is going in the wrong direction. Bizarre.

    Thanks for all the info in the updates. So much going on keeps everyone on their toes

  3. I thought I was done with 51.
    I feel silly asking but what is the unlock for 51?

  4. So as soon as I got the herbicide sprayer as maxed out as I intend to make it, I now have half as many Bobcobs to tap? *sigh* This event is so frustrating. I love the Terwilliger characters and that’s the only reason I’m still playing because I absolutely hate this event.

  5. Oh EA, why? First you lower the gas masks from 5 to 3 now you lower the spawn rate too. Because a few of us are ahead of the curve? What about everyone still grinding for the prizes, and all of us who upgraded the squirter expecting those big payouts of materials? You make the rules and then change them mid game because we’re getting too far “ahead”? I earned 15 bonus donuts in the first act and was on pace for about the same this act; if the third is similar is it really that bad giving away 45 donuts for an over monthlong event? Love it or hate it, during the Star Trek event on Family Guy I’ve earned over 300(!!!) clams. Takes a long time to get that many donuts. I’ve really been enjoying this event too, but this is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

  6. I like the new level, but I’m surprised they released it during an event, especially one as big as this one, with so much to do. I’m just going to leave most of the quests until after the event, unless some of it can be done by characters who don’t earn fertilizer/DNA/corn.

  7. On the burns money mountain I have completed level one but the option is not available for Mr burns to throw more money on the pile???

    • Yup it’s a glitch…EA knows about it and is working on a fix. Hopefully it’ll hit soon 🙂

      • Yup, I wen tto play today too, and after clicking burns on the 2nd money pile I went to send him in again and the option was gone here too..
        I had a feeling I wasn’t the only one and I see that it’s true.
        I hope it’s fixed soon, then again, at least it’s not a timed quest.

      • Thank you for that Alissa, I haven’t even done the first money pile dump yet, no option at all to

    • You must tap on the pile and upgrade it, took me a while to figure it out

      • No it’s not that. The task is disappearing from Mr. Burns’ task list. You have zero ability to send him to put money on the pile…no matter what you tap. I have the same glitch in my town.

  8. My lvl 52 won’t start. What am I missing?
    I’m building my money mountain but 52 won’t start. Help.

  9. Ive just finished throwing money at the mountain am at 8000 but the task had disappeared from the list on mr burns?

  10. I’ve been designing a “rich” section. I noticed many of these buildings being premium earned a more than fair amount of cash. I thought it may be more appropriate if after outsourcing labor (EA) and corporate tax breaks that we should have to pay them to have their majestic buildings grace our Springfield. Moloch. Sanders 2016!


  11. Not too thrilled about Bob clones going to 10 mins. 🙁 I was trying to get as many bonus boxes as possible. And of course crafting materials. So hard to rack up on DNA. And I’ve upgraded the HS to get 25 a pop.
    Starting to really tire of this event.
    I wonder if there will be another crafting material item added during act 3 like DNA being added during act 2. I hope not.

  12. Great that there’s a lot of stuff to keep interest in the game but my Springfield is getting pretty maxed out. Any ideas when the next land expansion availability will be coming? Cheers! 🇬🇧😊

  13. Is there a cap on leveling up on the Mr. Burns task I’m stuck to get to level 3 I click on the bear and click spend and it goes to Mr. Burns but it’s just his regular task not the spending money or throwing money is there anymore

    • There’s a glitch going on with it at the moment. We’re doing a little digging into it..give us a little bit to see what’s going on 🙂

    • I had the exact same thing happen after completing this task nine times. I need just one more ten minute stint of Burns throwing money to have the mountain at level two, but the task disappeared completely from Burns’s task list in my game. Thanks, Addicts team, for looking into this glitch!

  14. I’ve gotten frustrated with the reduced earnings on fertilizer, corn and DNA with the reduced spawn rate for Mutant Bobs. So I was happy to lean into the Burns tasks. I made it through 3 of the 10 min “throw money on the pile” tasks, and then the task disappeared. The game reflects that I have thrown 9000 of the 10000 dollars on the pile, somehow, but I can’t select the task to do the last 1000 and move on to level 2. Anyone else finding glitches in this quest/event?

    • There’s a weird glitch going around. We’re doing some digging into it. As soon as we have some answers we’ll pass them along 🙂

  15. Hi I think I’ve finally worked out these multipliers – but I have a question. If something is level released (so not event or aspirational) and you are not fussed about buying it straight away, is it best just to wait and assume eventually it will end up 25% of its original value? Sorry if I appear thick but I’ve never worked this out. To me now after reading your guide page, which was really helpful, it’s more like discounting than applying multipliers as you don’t know the base price at first…or is there a way of finding this out? Cheers 🙂

    • Yea, but you can’t progress to the next level until you at least buy the first building in a level. So in other words you can’t move onto Level 53 until you’ve completed the build/character unlock for Level 52…and so no.

  16. FINALLY! …have the bloomin farmers market building…

    *pats self on back* phew

    Now okay I might seem a bit silly asking so soon but how do I get Burns to spend money in the cash pit? There is no task high lighted for it when I tap on him or go via the pit? Confused : /

    • There’s a problem with the mountain right now. We’re digging into it. I need to have Bunny work her EA magic and see if she can get some answers on it. Unfortunately, i’m at work and that sort of phone call is frowned upon here lol

      • Thanks Alissa I honestly thought I was going mad! I must of hit burns about 10 times in frustration lol!!

        At least it means I can truly concentrate on getting enough dna for the gas n grub in the meantime…

        …this addict is so happy not to think about the farmers market any more : )

    • Same problem here
      but Wow Alissa get the GasAndGrub already?! /o/

      • lol gotta take my advice. I crafted the Farmer’s Market BEFORE Act 2 started…and just focused on getting DNA and corn. It also helps that I have just about every character in the game…

  17. coffeeloveer14

    Is anyone else conflicted? Should i do the mr bursns tasks or Cecils tasks????

  18. I’d noticed that the clones didn’t seem to be coming as quickly after the update, so it was good to read that I wasn’t imagining that.
    I’m excited for the new content, even if it is distracting in the middle of an event. I don’t mind buying buildings at the premium price. I’ve been playing pretty much since the game came out, so I always make sure to keep a few million around in my game for purchasing new content.

  19. What determines the “priority” of the task?

  20. kimberlyah794

    Ugh. I was so busy tapping my game that I accidentially spent 4 donuts to replay the race at Springfield Downs. I even accidentially confirmed the action. So annoying. On the upside, I did win $12,000, so there’s that… Le sigh.

  21. moviebuff3000

    I think they also changed the conform meter for gluttony because I was maxed on that and now on 4 1/2 stars after the level 52 update and I haven’t changed out any of my buildings either.

  22. Lunch Lady Doris:
    “More testicles mean more iron”

    I love the look on LLD when Willy asks LLD if she has any grease to grease him up !

  23. Tasks not highlighted are really annoying. Is this supposed to be an intentional thing instead of a glitch? Characters who don’t have any other item dropping task apart from the “glitched” ones don’t appear in the begging of the character selector, forcing you to look at all the characters or memorize which ones are affected… THAT is the annoying part, specially when you have been playing for a long time and have tons of characters. The whole event is cumbersome as is, but I was enjoying it until this started to happen.

    • Try locking the research building with a road around it and take out the other roads.This will keep the people in one place.

      See ya bye. Shine on you Crazy Diamond .

    • Or put non-event characters on long tasks so that every character that comes up is event related. Then clear Springfield and the non-event characters separately

  24. EA just keeps you guys on your toes! Level 52 update, the new Mr Burns Money Mountain and of course the continuing saga of the Monsano Corp!
    Thanks for keeping us in the loop and letting us know the best ways to manage our game!

  25. Regarding the Donut Spend option I’ve recently uninstalled and reinstalled the game on two devices and noticed that the option is now defaulting to ON instead of OFF as it previously did. This might be causing less instances of the option accidentally resetting to OFF during updates.

    I still never had this problem a single time, but that might be connected to the fact that all my devices don’t have storage card slots and the game installed to internal memory. Maybe updates on storage cards are more susceptible for this issue…

    Maybe you can do a poll the other day, asking players how often they actually had to set it back to ON.

  26. i loved the mutant veggies (especially when chomping the blobs) but will be happier to tap three bobs at once without hitting a veggie.

    • Actually, the way it used to work, I found once you upgraded the sprayer, if you tapped a Bob Corn, it would automatically hit JUST Bob Corn, and leave the veggies alone. Seen it skip over veggies a few times, just make sure your innitial hit is a Bob Corn. (Although it doesn’t matter now that they removed them from neighbors towns)

      • somehow my fat fingers kept hitting the veggies instead of the bobs (whenever there’d be a cluster of both types). it was frustrating!

      • The veggies had priority over the Bob Corn. So if side be side, the veggie took thee hit. Glad to see the veggies go.

  27. I wouldn’t mind the event tasks highlighting disappearing if it seemed intentional but with it only affecting two of the fertilizer tasks it appears to be a glitch rather than something that’s been programmed. I did notice that Work the Land was highlighted when it became a bonus task but as soon as that was completed the highlight disappeared again.

    EA definitely seem to be trying to make this event more difficult, reducing the clone rate but keeping the number of masks dropped to 3 rather than 5 makes it much tougher for players than collecting trowels in act 1.

  28. I like the level update. It’ll make me work hard and be entertained again. I’ll have to work hard to get enough money to build this thing and get the land I need.

  29. Thanks for the info! I’ll have to watch out for the Clone that rubs butter on itself. lol

  30. My game keeps crashing since the 52 update. I think it is because I am vegan and built a slaughterhouse 🙁

    • hahaha

      Try hard closing and restarting. If it continues, uninstall and resinstall TSTO.

    • I’m having the same issue…..

    • That was happening to me, too, yesterday, but I chalked it Hoo to being away from home and using a weaker, public Wi-Fi signal. But it happened to me once already this morning, at home, so, especially after reading your comment, I’m beginning to think it’s not just a problem with my signal/installation.

      I’ve also noticed that the problem with tasks lists closing prematurely seems to have escalated and I also just recently became the victim of the “demoted” event-currency tasks problem. Interestingly, though, despite all of these issues, I’m enjoying myself with this event now. I think that once I got the farmer’s market, my feelings about this event really turned a corner for the better! 🙂

    • Hey everyone,
      @karmakat100, my game hasn’t been crashing but I’m also a vegan. I’m always curious why people become vegan. I did it because I live animals and I couldn’t ignore the fact that if they are treated wonderfully(which they usually aren’t) if they feel scared of feel any kind of pain or discomfort, I don’t want any part of it. And obviously they are lots of things that influenced me but when I was young Lisa Simpson was one of the first “people” that I “knew” was a vegetarian and it was the first time I started thinking about what REALLY happens to get that food to yr plate. For that I’d like to thank Sam Simon who recently passed away becos it seems he had a big part in wanting Lisa to be the way she is.
      A fun fact about the episode “Lisa the vegetarian” that I learned at the addicts meet and greet. Paul mccartney only agreed to be on the show if the Lisa would be a vegetarian forever. So she will never eat meat again. Anyway, if anyone reading this wants to know more about the meat industry, animal rights or info on all the really great tasting, healthy, cruelty-free food available, do some reasearch, look things up. Thanx and have fun.
