Turbo Tappin’ Itchy and Scratchy Land: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly summertime (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and who doesn’t think of theme park visits when thinking about summer?  With the latest Itchy and Scratchy Land update you can build your own theme park in TSTO AND eliminate Krustyland once and for all! Just make sure you have your flashbulb cameras ready to destroy the evil robots…

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 of Itchy and Scratchy Land runs until June 13th, and you’ll have to destroy Krustyland to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…also the questline is there to guide you.  Make sure you complete the main questline in order to unlock things like neighbor actions, crafting and more.

Now let’s work our way through the frenzy of the Act 1 questline….

  1. Before the nuke, I had all of the land in Krustyland bought, however I didn’t receive any free land tokens afterward. Did this happen to anyone else or should I contact EA about it?

  2. So many possibilities. Middle Ages land, tomorrow/radioactive man land, eat around the world land.

  3. I’m one of the lovers of this event. I feel like Krustyland is getting the attention it needed, and I like the Itchy and Scratchy content too. I’m glad that I had continued to visit my old Krustyland and collected all of the tickets (daily), and had bought all of the old Krustyland land way back when. It was great to get all of those feee land tokens.

    As for the event itself…….I wish it was less traditional than the average act, but I can live with it given the theme and content.

  4. this lag is killing me. I have multiple items selected and it takes a good minute before it “unfreezes” before I can move the items. Then to place them again, same issue.

  5. In one of my towns, Bart and Lisa have an 8 hour task that earns Krusty dollars, but in the other two towns they don’t have this task. Not sure why it is available in one town but not another.

  6. Many of you are finding out that our games crash when we Nuke Kristy’s shambles of a park.
    Some of us get to the friends page and watch our parks go Kablooey and then e game closes and we are back to where we started with no new event for us. I’ve tried 17 times. Of course EA has been very helpful on the phone and through email. They can’t figure it out but they are working on it. A patch for the issue is coming but we don’t know when. It sucks as I’m a player who’s spent $$$ on this game for the last 5 years and I always land on these events like a fatty on a buffet table at Golden Coral!
    Alas. Not now. I’m hoping this is not, as Kevin at EA games thinks could be an issue, that my IPad 4th gen is out of date and cannot accept iOS 11 and higher. I may be forced to upgrade my device and THAT is a class A bummer!

  7. Hey there I am buying land after I cashed in my 2 million tickets prematurely … should have read this first but for some reason it will not trigger any ideas on how to get this this update to trigger thanks in advance
    Shaun

    • I didn’t have a problem, but I read storing town hall and then replacing it will work to free up Mayor Quimby- or check if Mayor Quimby is free (he cannot be on a task)
      I Hope this helps…

  8. After sending Bart to ride the Injury500, Homer needs to be free, don’t send him on task at the Itchy Scratchy entrance. If you do this you will miss the ” ! ” on Homer

  9. Hey I have accidentaly place in my springfield krustyland entrance now i cant store it again. Also there are krustyland visitors in my springfield? Will that vanish after the event. I would like to get rid of this so badly.

  10. All of my Springfielders went to complain about Krustyland and are stuck in an endless loop. I release them; they go back. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice and they’re still stuck. What else can i do?

  11. I don’t have the crafting area in itchy scratchy event. How do I get it?

  12. I’m also unable to log in (error logging in) not wrong password or anything.

    • Hi, I had the same issue and basically had to change my password, uninstall and reinstall the app to fix it

  13. I’m very excited about this update. Love the theme (I keep hearing lines from the episode in my head as I tap, “We need more Bort license plates!” 😊) For my new Krustyland/Itchy and Scratchy land I put Springfield Heights in inventory, never been a fan, and now the amusement park is right over the mountains, looming over Springfield like the omninous threat it is…. Hee hee hee!

    • I might do that too, good idea. But i don’t know if there is enough space. Especially if we can expand the rides very much. (Who knows also after the event)

  14. Bringing Krustyland to Springfield is not working out too well for me, I keep getting the messagebox about staying around 8500 items but I had around 10,500 before the nuke. Why give us so many items if you can’t use the amount you want! On the flip side it nice they gave us land tokens for nuking Krustyland, gonna put those to good use, my Springfield was getting cluttered.

  15. I completed the initial tasks for the Injury 500, and nothing has triggered. I deleted and reinstalled, to no change. ???

  16. I can’t get Part 4 to trigger. I’ve done everything but it wont trigger. Nothing about tapping fans or tapping in other springfields. Any suggestions?

  17. I have done all this…

    Now i have no “task icon” and i have no visitors or a screen to do crafting

    Any idea what is going on?.

  18. I keep trying to nuke my Krustyland but the game crashes & exits. I don’t know what else to do.

  19. Duke nuke'em crashes

    Man oh man, I’m loving the new mini game update! I think I have maxed high points in “nuke krustyland, game crashes” I love it so much I don’t care to do nothing else, like questline………pffffffffttttt gimme “nuke krusty crash game” any time. 😒

  20. I like what EA did: Krustyland gone, more land available, and a bountiful theme park(s) design opportunity. Albeit, it doesn’t address everyone’s concerns. IMO, a great attempt at meeting the customer’s needs. There were transformation problems, but that’s to be expected. I have been amazed at how well EA listens to TSTO Addicts suggestions. Yes, I’m a strangely happy person who adapts rather than complains. My opinions will be in the minority.

  21. I HATE this! I’m one of a very few who loved there design of KL. I will never get my design back the way I had it. I had some cool 3 D designs that frankly I don’t want to spend the time on trying to duplicate.
    Also, didn’t KL have a bumper car ride with little blue cars? Maybe I’m crazy but I’m sure there was one. I have some debris blue cars in my inventory but not the ride. Am I crazy or am I missing a ride?

  22. Hi Alissa, my daily challenge hasn’t changed to the the event currency yet. Am I missing something?

    • If they were there BEFORE the event started they won’t change to even currency on their own. That only happens when you go from one act to another, not when an even starts. In order to get them to change over you have to hit the x on each task. But you can only do 1 x/day. In the meantime you’re missing out on daily challenges waiting for them to turn over.

      Not sure where this idea of saving Daily Challenges before the event started came from, certainly wasn’t something I suggested. I only make that suggestion when going from Act 1 to Act 2 or Act 2 to Act 3…

      • I saw someone suggest it prior to the event…blame them 😄

        I kept one challenge so I could cancel it once the event started. Worked out and got 1500 currency. My guess is you could have kept three and just cancel one each day (or 12 hours, think that’s the timer)…but like Alissa said, you might miss out on new challenges. That’s why I just kept one going in, give me a little head start.

        • lol doesn’t work out quite as nice when moving from Act 1- 2 or 2-3 huh?

          • Hahaha nope! Not as effective for sure.

            It was more of an experiment for me, just to see if I could swap a challenge when the event starts. Might be something to try here on out, but I’d only reserve one challenge.

      • Sorry guys, that was me. Discovered that saving tasks before the event starts does nothing…the prizes don’t change to event prizes. It only works between acts within the event…silly me🙃🤷‍♀️.

        • lol I’ll forgive you…it’s a good strategy as long as you keep 1 block open and have the patience to clear out 1 task/day. Just doesn’t work as neatly as it does between tasks.

      • Hi Alissa, Hi everyone. I have a question. I don’t have scratchy will I still be able to play? Unfortunately, I also have only 99 doughnuts so I can’t afford to buy him.

      • My daily challenges change to the event currency I was saving the money prices to changes to get some donuts but luckily I got the event ones

  23. Also affected by the Nuke crashing bug. This seems widespread, as it has been reported on EA forums, reddit, etc. Hopefully they will make a fix, and adjust allowed time to complete tasks.

  24. Whenever I nuke my Krustyland, the whole things crashes. Is anyone else having this issue?

    • Some suggestions people have suggested are putting everything into your krustyland into your inventory first then try nuking, If that doesn’t work it’s also suggested to swipe the game closed and then hard restart your phone/tablet

    • Simone Kristensen

      Yeeees. Been nuking since morning, but it still crashes 😓

    • I had that issue on my Ipad, and it wasn’t on the Kindle store yet. I installed on my Android phone and was able to nuke.

    • A whole bunch of us is in the same predicament. Contacted EA and was advised to try logging into my game on a second device (which I do not gave). This seemed to work for some. Maybe in 4 days when KL will get nuked automatically, problem will be solved….if so, still will have lost 5 days.

    • I had this problem. Contacted EA, they wanted to do a rollback. Nope. In a previous post someone mentioned loading it onto a newer device so I borrowed my husband’s phone – no room on mine – logged in, did the nuke, logged in on my old iPad and I was able to play. Deleted it off hubby’s phone and I’m good to go.

    Thanks, Jenn, I will try the stuff with the Injury ride track, my game lags as well. Actually, this is the perfect event for me right now: even though I know this will be an impopular opinion, I just don’t like Itchy and Scratchy that much. So since I will go on holidays soon, I can keep the tablet switched off and don’t have to log in since I won’t be missing any prices that might be important to me. So I am happy this comes now. I read the previous thread before nuking Krustyland and received quite a lot of land tokens since I quickly bought land with all the unused tickets, and now the Krustyland stuff will remain in storage, and the Itchy&Scratchy land stuff will join them as soon as the event is done. I am looking forward to a quiet vacation with no worries about Springfield. For those who enjoy the content, I wish the best of luck and lots of fun! See you at the next event.

    • If you do just a few things in the event (as the article explains) you could get the itchy full character very early for free, and I also suggest checking out the mystery boxes as one is full of characters.

      Enjoy your vacation!

  26. In case anyone is looking for the should I buy for the donut boat, donut truck, donut store, here is the link.

    Side note: itchy also has an 8 hour task that earns event currency (but it is not as efficient as doing 4 hour task twice)

  27. Christen Faust

    My Squeaky voiced teenager character has disappeared! Where did he go? Is this part of nuking Krustyland?

  28. Is anyone having login issues today? I’ve been logged out overnight and when I try and log in it’s throwing an error screen (not wrong password). This was my first port to see if it’s today’s issue or something else.

  29. When I nuke , several times now. Game crashes and booted out of game. Any ideas?

  30. My Springfield was lagging badly. I turned the corner track on the Injury ride, the the track isn’t continuous, and the lag vanished. Just in case that helps anyone else…
