Random Changes Level 56

Hey there Hoppereenos!

For those of you not to keen on working in the Springfield Heights Area, EA has dropped a lil tasty morsel for you to work on instead. Another Level. This now brings us to Level 56.

Let’s take a peak at what the New Level 56 Changed in our silly lil games.

For the basics on Level 56 and the Rundown, see the post HERE.


WHY CAN’T I SEE THE NEW STUFF? 

You have two things running in the game… XP Level and Game Play Levels. In order to move on to the New Content BOTH need to be in the same Level.

XP Level: This is at the bottom Left of your screen. This is ONLY the XP Counter. It will need to say Level 56 in order to see the New Content.

Level 55

Game Play Level: This is essentially the Walkthroughs. The Dialog you MUST complete with each Level to move on to the next. In other words, you will NOT be able to see Level 56 if you have not completed all the required prior Level Content before. So make sure you completed Level 52, 53, 54,  and 55 Walkthroughs in order to see Level 56.

 

You can use our Walkthroughs for each Level to see where YOU are at in Game Play and find out what you need to complete to move forward.

Now to the Random Changes….

First off, with another new level comes more new pricing. This means the top 8 Levels of the game have a mark up on the Buildings Costs as they are the “Newest” Levels. As you can see the top 2 and bottom 2 are the same, so you will not notice any changes for 2 Levels on these items.

Here is the Multiplier Tier Breakdown.

Level 56: 4X Cost
Level 55: 4X Cost
Level 54: 3X Cost

Level 53: 2X Cost
Level 52: 1.6X Cost
Level 51: 1.4X Cost
Level 50: 1.3X Cost
Level 49: 1.3X Cost
(Level 48-1: No Multiplier)

 


NEW BUILDING PRICES

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). Base Price is the lowest possible cost you will pay for the Building… IF you wait until several more Levels are released and it moves down the Multiplier Tiers until there is no more Multiplier.

Current Price is what it will cost you RIGHT NOW in the game.

KNOWN ISSUES

These are the few things that are still ongoing in the game and have been a while now.

Friend Point FPFP Points Missing: For whatever reason, FP Points stopped popping out of several buildings a while back. I have not narrowed down a complete list yet as I have way too many buildings to test it on and not enough people tapping them. Either way, this issue has been here for a few months at least. All I can suggest is continue to bug EA on this one and tell them to put the FP Points back on ALL Buildings your neighbors tap so you can collect them.

http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/FP-Friend-Points-Missing-now-from-several-Buildings/m-p/4711538#M103250

Spray Can IconVandalism Missing: I do not know what is going on with this one, but it is still disabled for many that you can no longer vandalize neighbors. Still no clear answer on this one. Also… one of those if you REALLY want it back to contact EA.

 


SPRINGFIELD HEIGHTS ISSUES

Here are the items we are still seeing in Springfield Heights Area.

indicator_heights_calltoactionyogaYoga Mat Icon: Just last update (Ice Cream Homer), Fat Tony was kicked out of the LA Body Works and replaced by Snake. Still nothing concrete on why… but it is causing an issue. Due to the game still thinks Tony should be in there working to make Yoga Mats, the Yoga Mat Icon still lingers around if Tony is not doing anything. All you can do at this point is keep bugging EA to either put Tony back or fix it so that he is not linked to the LA Body Work any longer. In the meantime, it will go away if you keep Tony busy.

http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/Yoga-Mat-Icon-Won-t-Go-Away/m-p/4711520#M103249

FYI: This so far looks to be fixed now, will keep an eye on it…but looks like Snake is here to stay. 

 

ico_heights_prize_mansionmodernbigbuilding_lgSurplus Buildings: As many of you may already know, if you store those extra Real Estate earning buildings in your Inventory… you seem to be able to make them “disappear” and make more beyond the 10 Limit (Modern Mansion, Classic Mansion, etc). I do not know how much longer this will be around for, but I would suggest to use it to your advantage if you REALLY want to boost your Real Estate Points right now. Use it before it is fixed. After it is, you will be stuck with the Buildings at the Levels they are on and at the 10 MAX Limit.

 

Tapped_Out_Community_Prize_DonutsMissing Donuts: Some of you are still reporting you are without your donuts that mysteriously vanished when the new area hit our games. Calling in to the “scripted reps” got you all the “scripted response” to wait for an update. Both myself and Alissa are going against this. We have been and will keep saying DO NOT WAIT FOR AN UPDATE. There is no way they can know the exact amounts to return to you. Sorry, but they can’t.

The ONLY way to resolve this is to call if at all possible as those reps seem the most helpful, or use the chat feature if you have to. Either way, do NOT take “wait” for an answer. Be kind, be courteous, but tell them the exact amount you are missing and that you would like them to be placed back into your game. If you have a receipt from purchase, add that to your form once you submit the issue to EA. (You just go back to it and attach a file once case is opened.) So far, the 3 games I had that they went missing all had them added back by the rep on the phone WHILE I was on the phone. Chat Agents were no help and just kept copy and pasting that script.

Short story long… YOU will have to be proactive in getting them back in your game. Ask for a Supervisor or to be escalated to a higher support if needed, but make sure you get them back while the rep is there.

TRADE DONUTS FOR IN GAME CASH

This was introduced a few Levels back, but I will continue updating it for the newest Levels. These are the options as of Level 55.

First it’s important to note that the higher the level you are the more cash you’ll get for your donuts.  

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_1 – $13,250 will cost you 9 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_2– $66,250 will cost you 30 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_3 – $159,000 will cost you 65 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_4 -$265,000 will cost you 100 donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_5 – $795,000 will cost you 285 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_6 – $1,590,000 will cost you 550 Donuts

Tapped_Out_Grind_Pack_7 $3,180,000 will cost you 1,000 Donuts

Money Safe 1600 Donuts to Cash$5,300,000 will cost you 1600 Donuts

Again this will vary depending on your level.  The above numbers reflect it if you’re on Level 56.  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.)

Off

Confirm Donut Notification and Sound Volume

ON

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. Hey Bunny I’m still having the issue with LA body works but my Fat Tony is actually stuck inside the building and has been for quite some time. He has quests he needs to do and when I try to make him do them it just takes me there. The town census also says he is building muscle. Any suggestions for how to fix??? Thanks!

  2. I do have to say I LOVE the interface update where dollars aren’t the highest priority when there are multiple things in a spot you are tapping. Makes clearing buildings and people so much faster, not tapping over and over again due to a character walking into a pile of money.

    It’s like someone at EA actually played the game and realized how obnoxiously annoying that was.

  3. More of an Open Thread, but it’s almost Sunday and people have commented on Vandalising disApparu g, so here goes.
    (Numbers are pure hypothetical)
    I am at 4.5 Righteous Stars, I ad Training Wall #15 and I am at 5.0 stars.
    Someone tags me, I drop to 4.5 stars. I add a wall to get back to 5.0
    This continues until I have 20 walls. Can I store all 20 walls, drop to 0.0 stars. THEN add back the orgional 15 Walls and get back to 5.0 Stars? Does the game KNOWi have a negative rating, requiring me to always compensate, or, does zero mean zero?

    Like

    • If you are still seeing a “hit” to righteousness, that means you do not have enough overall to combat it. I added a TON Of walls to my town. Not sure how many now. My Star never drops below 5 since then. If you don’t have enough, you will see it fluctuate. Each new Level the amount you are required to meet in the conform increases. So with all the new recent levels… it would have increased a lot. You may want to just double the walls so you don’t have to worry about it. Make sense?

      It will fluctuate until you have MORE than required as each action and task can impact it. From as simple as sending snake on a job to all sorts of odd things.

    • Why would you ever want to do that?

      • My star level never drops below 5, but I ponder the intricacies.
        It sounds as though the suggestion is to buy enough walls to conform at “Level 100” and never worry about it until way, long in the future. Forget about “throw money at it”, instead, “throw Training Walls at it” 😆😆
        My inquiring mind (I am a retired R&D Scientist) wants to take things apart and understand.
        So I ponder the issue…..
        Each new level increases the amount required to conform.
        Each vandalism increases the amount required to conform.
        Does the affect of each act of Vandalism forever impact the amount required to conform? Even after a Level Up?
        If so, I would postulate that by eliminating everything you have purchased to conform, perhaps you could eliminate the impact of Previous Vandalisms and only need to re-purchase (pull out of storage) the Amount Required to Conform based on one’s current level. (Plus some for “insurance”) This would “reset” the “baseline” for lack of a better word.
        This sounds like too much work, but some people may find it helpful – if it works. But given people are hitting the “5000 item” mark, eliminating hidden Training Walls could be a positive thing.
        I’m curious, that’s all. I would never “hack” the game, but I am curious as to how it is done. I am just curious.

        • No. Points are there to stay. They are a fixed number. Let’s say 100 points hypothetical. Each wall worth 10 points. So to hit 5 stars… you need 10 walls. Then a vandalism comes along with a 30 pint damage. So now you have a few options.

          Clear the points by finding and capturing Sideshow in towns with him still roaming, send the “good guys” like cops on tasks, or add a few more points ie Walls to make up the difference.

          Downside… there is NO explanation in a reasonable manner from EA anywhere to say why righteousness impacts like it does. It comes and goes without warning. Up n down and you don’t even realize. You can wait n hope it fixes itself eventually.

          So… to combat any possibility of it lowering… I try to almost double my points coverage (I like to design so its not a big deal for 20 HUGE wall to cover an area vs 20 lil flowers that barely are noticeable. Then I never worry. Not to mention with all my bonus multipliers now… a .5% difference is not a big deal to me if I drop righteousness.

        • Okay, I get that… I’m a bit that way, too.

          From what I could tell/remember, hits to vandalism aren’t “permanent” – I used to experience periodic, mysterious sudden major drops in Righteousness (not tied to any particular activity) that would, over a few days, gradually fix itself. All of this was while just playing “normally,” with no attempt to do anything different. (This was when I was a lower-level player, before getting training walls was even an option.) There seems to be a bit of capriciousness to the Righteousness rating that doesn’t exist for the other elements of the Conform-o-Meter. So, basically, at some point I just stopped worrying about it and, once I could buy training walls, just made sure I had enough to keep my rating at 5. When it drops, I just buy another walk or two (they’re pretty easy to hide around and actually worked as a walk around my Monsarno complex, with the doors hidden by trees).

          So, good luck on your quest to unravel the mysteries of Righteousness, in this game and beyond lol! 😉
