Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So the Thanksgivng Update hit earlier today…and like many updates there’s always more than initially meets the eye. As we “peel back the layers” of this (or any) update we always start to uncover some bugs and hidden “gems”. So this post is designed to cover both the good and the bad.
So let’s dive into the Thanksgiving “Easter Egg” and the latest bug impacting players….the game crashing.
First let’s start with the bad news…
Unfortunately for some players the game is crashing. This happens when you reach the part of the dialogue where it talks about Homer judging. It’s not impacting everyone, but it is impacting enough players for it to be a bit of an issue. So what can you do if it’s hitting you to? Here’s a few tips to try:
First, it could be related to a bad file that downloaded with the Halloween removal. So, as we always suggest try uninstalling and reinstalling TSTO completely from your device (Remember only do this if you have an EA/Origin Account saving your game. If you play anonymously, do not uninstall you will lose your game.)
If that doesn’t work my next suggestion is to contact EA. You can either do so directly or via the forum. If you want to go the forum route another player has already started a thread on it. You can find that thread here:
If you prefer to contact EA directly (which is usually the route I prefer, and what I generally recommend) you can do so here:
Hopefully because enough players are impacted by this it will be resolved quickly.
Now onto the good news….
There’s a hidden “Easter Egg” in the Thanksgiving Event! Nope it’s not donuts. Instead you can earn a premium item…one that we earned last year as well….the Thanksgiving Cornucopia
This will earn you a 0.50% bonus on all cash and XP.
So how do you get it? Well certain characters have Thanksgiving themed tasks. If you send one from each group on the task you’ll unlock the “Easter Egg”. There are three tasks you need to complete…Hunt Turkeys, Bless Turkeys & Import Gourmet Turkeys.
You only have to do each task ONCE in order to unlock it, despite being able to send multiple characters on each task. You will not earn more Cornucopias for doing the tasks multiple times.
Here’s a rough list of who can do each task:
Bless Turkeys- 2hrs. Rev. Lovejoy, Helen Lovejoy, Rod, Todd & Flanders
Hunt Turkeys- 2hrs. Grampa, Sea Captain, Wolfcastle, Lenny, Duffman, Dr. Nick, Ralph, Tatum, Otto, Wiggum & Cletus
Import Gormet Turkeys- 2hrs. Brockman, Mr. Burns, Krusty, Fat Tony, Roger Myers Jr., Quimby, Bernice Hibbert & Wolfcastle.
These are the ones I saw..i’m sure I’m missing some but I figured this was a decent list for you guys to go off of.
Once you do each task once you’ll unlock the Cornucopia and see this message:
And there you have it my friends a few new details on the latest update.
