Cecil Terwilliger’s Daily Tasks 5/8

Hey there Hoppereenos!

This is your Daily Bounce By to let you know what time drops I saw for Today’s Cecil’s Daily Tasks.


Here was the breakdown of Cecil’s Daily tasks I got in both my games…


1st Daily Task 2hrs
2nd Daily Task 4hrs
3rd Daily Task 1hrs
4th Daily Task 4hrs

Remember, the tasks and Character Groups will vary for every player. Let us know if you see anything different in your game.


In case you missed it in the rundown post, as of Act Two, there are new payouts for completing these.

Here are the Top 5 I always leave free for the Daily Tasks (also in the post below). This allows my other Characters to focus on other Material earning tasks. (This list was made to be friendly to all players. If you have some Premium Characters that could replace them with, feel free to.)

You can find a lot more detailed post on the Daily Tasks HERE.  😉

FYI… If you did NOT complete a task from the prior day, it rolls over to be the FIRST task of the next day. You will lose the higher payout. So finish them BEFORE the reset or you will have it become the next day’s task. 

How are your daily tasks coming along? Getting them done? Visiting Neighbors still going well? How are your New Gas Mask Materials counts coming along?  Let us know.

  1. New update that starts automatically and has a task for Bart and two premium items! 🙂

  2. Billy Bo Bob

    My two towns were 6-2-1-4. This whole week the first two tasks differed from Bunny’s, but the last two matched. Maybe it’s from me on the West coast vs Bunny’s East coast?

  3. OrdinarilyBob

    FYI – My Cecil tasks for the day (Starting just at midnight last night) were 6hrs, 2hrs, and my third one is 1hr.

  4. So far I’ve had a 6 hour and a 4 hour. I didn’t finish my tasks on Wednesday and it seems to always take me a few days to get back on track after that.

  5. Usually im able to wake up in the middle of the night to start but last night, i fed the baby and went right back to sleep – so happy i don’t have a 16 or 20 hour day!

    Sorry if this has been answered somewhere and i missed it but will we be able to drop mutant seeds in act 3 or should we get rid of all of them before the end of act 2?

  6. First was 4hrs and the second was 6hrs so far…

  7. Well, the bad news is I couldn’t get done with Cecil’s tasks by midnight yesterday; the good news is, I have a head start for today. The even better news is that my Work the Land task has gone back to being yellow and at the top! It looks like they’ve fixed that “demoted tasks” problem! (Or is it just me?)

    • Lol – just realized that the bad news about my good news is that I can’t do the email support thing about the demoted tasks glitch and potentially get some free donuts!

    • Well, that’s odds… The demoted tasks glitch is back. My Kindle Fire HD had an update when I started it (which I figured was the fix for this problem), but, just now, when I went to send folks to Work the Land again, it was back to being demoted. So, either the problem is only fixed for iOS and not for Kindle/Android, or the update I got “unfixed” it.

      I’ll have to wait for after-work hours to check out what’s happening in my iPad again…

      • Did you have a red box task to work the land? If so it will be highlighted again until you complete it. I had this happen to me and thought it was fixed too but then it switched back after completion.

      • Sandra Shill

        Davidbo33 – OMG, I think you’re right! That would explain it perfectly. Thanks for taking the time to clear that up for me! 🙂

      • You’re sure welcome, Sandra. I know when it happened to me I was happy for the “fix” only to discover an hour later it wasn’t really. Hopefully they can come up with a real fix soon. 😀

    • The update received late yesterday evening BST turned my Work the Land tasks white and go down the lists (they had stayed yellow for me)!

  8. I was the same as you again Bunny, but thanks to staying up all night watching UK election results roll in I was able to finish nice and early. A stress-free afternoon lies ahead of me 🙂

  9. My day started with a 6 hour send a pessimist to plant sterilized seeds. This is the first time I have had different timed tasks than what has been posted.

  10. Another day where my game matches your list 🙂

  11. Tony – I had that yesterday 🙂

  12. Mine started with another 6hr task after completing yesterdays nightmare 6,4,4,6.

  13. Are THE Bob mutans back to every 5 min??? My towns are crowded again. !!!

    • Not that I can tell. Files still showing 10m

    • Sorry for being a bit OT, but the whole Bob Clone thing and the game devs constantly tampering with the currency payouts is slowly becoming quite frustrating to me… First, the clones spawn every 5 minutes instead of 10 like the Mutant Veggies, then the Gas Mask payout goes down from 5 to 3 and now the Clones only spawn every 10 minutes also.
      First of all: The devs should really get it together and think about the rules of an event before (!) they release it – otherwise it gets insanely annoying when players have to adjust their plans every other day (with no one at EA even bothering to share the tiniest bit of info with the community about what is going on, of course…). Second, I do understand that they do not want us to earn free donuts for a whole week or so, so changing the Gas Mask payout is certainly not nice, but at least somewhat understandable. But nerfing the spawn rate also severely limits the possibilities for earning crafting currency – and crafting was a real toil even before that. Now that our main source of income for crafting (and at 25 per clone it is the main source) has essentially been halved there’s no way I can craft the stuff I want – and I have already said goodbye to the idea of having multiple Cane Fields. Sorry for this little rant, but the past few days I’ve been feeling like Homer going “I thought this was a game…”

  14. Sorry if this has been talked about – when I go into my neighbors towns if they have Mr Burns money pile
    The screen scrolls to the pile and won’t move. I can’t look around for the corn stalks to squish them.
    Is this a problem for others?
    I went into my town and stored the pile do hopefully people can get around in my town.
    Thanks for help!! Gailyn. Aka/gpikky

    • Yea it’s an on going glitch with the money pile. Best thing to do is contact EA and let them know you’re impacted too…hopefully they’ll compensate in you some way. Otherwise, we’re all stuck waiting for the patch to hit.

      • Thanks Alissa for the quick response.
        I’ll call ea.
        Sorry to my neighboreenos who I can’t tap because of the money pile glitch.
        Gailyn aka gpikky

  15. As to the cash mountain, I have discovered that you can continue to upgrade it even with the glitch. The patch upgraded me to level 3 and then no more task to click on. But clicking on either the mountain itself or the icon (I have not figured out which and just do both) even if Burns is busy earning event currency, will result in the next segment being completed. This has worked 3 times so far on level 3 (I am at 4500). So do not lose hope!

    • Doesn’t work for everyone. This is one I cannot duplicate in my down, despite having the glitch. Just a happy glitch for some.

      • It seems to have stopped working, but, long hard effort got me to Level 6 which has a nice tall pile. Would have liked to get to having a Derrick. BUT, I now have access to the Burns Tasks to allow him to throw money, be it $5000 or $10,000.

        Send Burns to fire employees 45 second task
        While he is there, store Cooling Towers
        Click on a Brown House or something and gather currency
        Store Money Mountain
        Visit a friend
        Come back and Click on a Brown House or something for money
        Un-store MM
        Click on something to get money
        Un- store and place Cooling Towers
        Check MM and see if you have completed one task – 1/10th of a Level.
        Amazing what one can stumble across when they are tired and tapping too quickly.

      • Thanks for the feedback. I still am not sure what happened. I did visit either neighbours or Krustyland, but I did not store anything. Only worked three times before disappearing and allowing me to upgrade the mountain normally.

  16. I started off with 6 hrs today (send a saint to milk a cow). Where do they get these tasks?


    • My “A” town also started with a six hour task. (which is good for being at work !!!)

    • I had that yesterday

    • I ended up with 6,4,1,4. So there is no rhyme or reason to this. Sometimes it matches, sometimes 1st one is different, sometimes more than 1 different. The only thing you can do is start ungodly early & cross your fingers.


  17. I have been slogging through things, mostly not overjoyed, but not depressed. Act 2 came in, and things started to feel better. I used the crafting tools for the market to upgrade quickly. The number of mutants doubled which meant 1 more mask per 10 minutes (owing to 3 instead of 5 per mutant) but double everything else. Now that they have dropped back to 1 per 10 minutes, everything has gone back to slow motion and I am finally feeling discouraged. In order to earn bonus donuts, I have to keep characters on corn tasks. I hope they either give us something to spend corn on or send us packets of popcorn in the mail because I am overwhelmed with corn, short on fertiliser and DNA. I haven’t hit the land barrier yet, but maybe it is a good thing that EA is no longer letting us craft as much as we want. But I am enjoying all the Zenith City buildings I crafted, better looking than most of the houses (maybe one day I’ll figure out what to do with 63 red phone booths). I would love to have cane fields instead of only trees, bushes and flowers. That’s exactly what Homer’s lawn would look like if Marge didn’t make him cut the grass. But it looks like it is not to be.
    THE ONE GOOD THING has been that random donuts from tapping on neighbours has increased. I now get 3-4 often and even donuts from Other Springfield. So I don’t need the bonus donuts so much now. Perhaps EA thinks this is more equitable? All I can say is anyone who does not have max friends and is not maxed out on friend points is really loosing out unless the new donut rate is here to stay (which I would not object to, being a freemium player).

  18. My first one is 6. And I finished yesterday’s, so not a rollover. Glad I started at midnight.

  19. Well, both my worlds started today with 6 hr tasks. And I finished yesterday’s tasks. ….ugh!

  20. It’s a 1/4 after 3am, I’ve just got back home to my iPad, and decided to check Bunny’s Task List before logging into my Springfield.

    I think I’ll wait the 45 minutes to start a 2-hour task, rather than open the game, now, and have Cecil present me with a 6-hour first task.


  21. My first task was 6 hours…glad that was first…

  22. My first daily task for 5/8 is a 6 hour task. Every task for Thursday was completed.

  23. Mine started out with a six hour task. I have a question. I keep having mini earthquakes , my whole Springfield shakes for a few seconds. Is this part of the game or just me?

  24. My first task at 12:02 was a 6 hour. Which is fine since I am going to go to bed, but still no fun.

    They really should have a maximum where no matter what combination of tasks the total time required will not go over say 10-12 hours. These 16 and 20 hour days are insane.
