Monorail Removal is Live (for ALL devices..and SAFE to download)

Update Bunny 10:15PM EDT: Seeing many reports from ONLY iOS users that they are crashing. All I can suggest is same… report it to EA and wait.

Update 4:30pm EDT: Seeing reports from several of you about your Rail Yard not paying out the tracks it’s supposed to.  You’ve earned enough points but it doesn’t reward them.  If this is happening to you…go to Krustyland and back to Springfield.  It will resolve itself.

Update 3pm EDT: Android users you are SAFE to download the update.  I just tested it out, had zero issues.  Level 57 is there, as is my questline progress.

iOS users, a patch did come through so players are no longer losing Level 57 buildings (if you’ve lost them, hard close and restart your game).  I can’t give you the “all clear” on it because I don’t have my iOS device with me right now, but based on reader comments it is safe to download now.

Kindle, it’s out for your platform.  I’m guessing it’s safe, as it’s safe for Android.  But I don’t have a Kindle so I couldn’t tell you for sure.  If anyone in the community on a Kindle wants to test it out and let me know I’ll report it here.  Thanks 🙂 Update: Several players have reported Kindle works just fine.

Update 2:30pm EDT: Update has hit Android now…I’m hoping all is resolved with the level 57 issue or it’s not impacting Android.  I’m going to “brave” it and test it now on my phone…I’ll report back here once I see if it works or not.

For iOS users: Other players are reporting that if you hard close and restart TSTO (if you’ve already downloaded the update) the buildings are restored now.  But they have to play the Level 57 questline over again.
Others are reporting that if they JUST now download the update they don’t lose any level 57 progress…so it may be safe to download now.

WARNING: Do not update to the new version in the App Store.  It will cause all of your Level 57 progress (at least that we know of) to disappear.  Hold off on updating for now if possible.  If you’ve already updated and have lost Level 57 progress (or completely), contact EA immediately.  (they are aware of the issue and are working on a patch, but in my mind it’s always good to contact them for yourself)

 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note to let you know the Monorail Removal Update is now live on iOS.  It’s also out on Android at this time.  It’s also hit Kindle.

So if you want to remove the event download the update from your App Store.  BUT be warned…there’s a bug going around we’re seeing creep into the comments with the download.  It’ll remove some buildings from your game.  So pay attention to what you have in your town and if anything is missing after you download the update contact EA immediately.

Monorail Takedown Preparation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note to let you know the Monorail Takedown is live in the files.  So what does that mean?  Well it means nothing really at this point, other than we can expect it to hit app stores later today.

Remember this will be an APP STORE UPDATE, so it won’t automatically remove from your game.  If you decide you don’t want to remove the event right away, instead you want to try for that last prize, be sure to TURN OFF AUTOMATIC UPDATES.

So to sum up…

-The Takedown update is currently in the files
-We expect it to hit App Stores today between 12pm-2pm.
-If you don’t want to remove the event just yet, make sure you turn off your automatic updates.

Once the update hits we’ll be back to let you know what’s changed and what to expect.  Until then keep tap, tap, tapping away…

Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Monorail Characters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Monorail Event should be coming to a close for us at some point today (remember it will take an App Store update to remove, so until that hits you can still collect B&W), but the event awarded us several new trash inspired characters.

While we’ve had the questlines up for each character for a while now, we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the character questlines that popped up during the Monorail Event.   So if you missed any of the dialogue during the event, or you’re just curious what one of the characters had to say that you didn’t unlock…we’ve got it all here for you!

So let’s get started with the complete dialogue walkthroughs for all of the Monorail characters that hit our game during the event…we’ll get things rolling with Jesse Grass (the only premium in the bunch)…

Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Monorail

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Monorail Event is winding down and we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the main questlines that popped up during Monorail Event (we’ll cover the characters in another post).  Especially since I know many of you were excited about the Monorail you may have tapped right through some of the fun! So if you missed any of the dialogue during the 3 Acts here’s your chance to catch it all!

It all starts way back when Garbage was a problem in Springfield and Lyle Lanley shows up with his song and dance….can you remember back that far?  So here we go with Homer, Garbage and Lyle….
