Tip For Disappearing Characters/Buildings During the Monorail Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick tip for those of you who are having issues with characters, buildings and sections of your towns going missing during the Monorail Event.

We’ve been informed by some players who have had the issue and spoke with EA, that it appears this issue is happening as a result of tracks being placed in the water.  (at least for some, this may not be the cause for everyone)

So…simple solution to try if you’re missing Characters/Buildings or sections of your town…remove tracks from the water (if they’re there).  Then hard close and restart your game, see if that helps.  You may still have to store and replace buildings to bring characters back, but keeping tracks out of the water should prevent this from happening going forward.

IF you DON’T have tracks in the water and are still having issues, contact EA.  Add your name to the growing list of players with the issue.

IF this doesn’t work for you…contact EA.

Also, if one of the missing characters is Homer or Lisa you cannot store the Simpson House..so you will have to contact EA to bring them back.

So the bottom line?  If you’re having issues with your town and you have tracks in the water, take them out of the water and see if that helps solve the problem.

And remember…if you’re having crashing issues it helps if you disconnect tracks from the station.  They don’t have to be stored, just disconnect them from the station itself.

Hopefully this will help some of you!

Random Changes Level 57

Hey there Hoppereenos!

WOOHOO!!! BELLE IS IN THE GAME FINALLY!!! I swear EA took my list of “Bunny wants in the game…” and just keeps going with it. Sideshow Bob as a Character, Monorail, Maison Derriere… to name a few. Now if only I can keep sending them mental images of Maggie as a Character, I will be set. 😉

In the midst of the Monorail Event, EA has chose to dump on up a Level Update. Getting really used to this by now, so anticipated something coming. I am definitely happy with what they brought, that’s for sure.

Now with the New Items comes some New Changes, so let’s go over some of them.

Monorail Act 3 Is Live

Note: The servers have been giving me issues off and on since Act 3 hit.   It’s probably just a bunch of people trying to get in at once.  Or it’s just because it’s 4am here on the East Coast and 1am where EA is.  In any event…don’t panic if you see the Bart Screen.  Just hit retry and see if you can get back in.  If you can’t, walk away from your game for a little bit and come back to it later.  The servers will come back, they always do…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
