Patch/Changes to fix bugs…define features…and more?

Yep…we just got “patched!”

EA just did a patch update that seems to have done a couple of things that are obvious.
1. The killed all of the Mini-Update Poochie related tasks that were lingering (and perhaps added a Glitch that blows up some of the content…) make that…they killed Poochie!
2. Changed the color of the zoo walls (weirdly one of those, “huh? This was worth patching???)
3. Appears to have added a MAJOR Glitch where all of the Poochie mini event content is now missing…
4. They have rolled back a bunch of “Bonus %”…perhaps hiding the Springfield Heights % again.

It’s a SNAFU!!  (Situation Normal…All F’d Up!)

EA….it seems that this update had the wrong calendar/clock in the code.  We get Teenage Homer…and lose progress from the last mini-update??  See???  This is what happens when you mess with time/space!!!

EA>>>>How about getting your programming team to understand versions of the code??  As in…if you don’t update to the latest, it rolls back when you go live with something associated with an old date…  GENIUS!!

They also patched a couple of holes in the code that allowed some exploitation of a task or two.

So far…that is it.
Let us know if you see anything else!

UPDATE… another patch being offered? We’ll keep you posted.
Someone at EA just had an “AH #%%&$!!” moment…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Giant Lobster Scorpion?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my!  The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns!  Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Giant Lobster Scorpion to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this 1 eyed crustacean to your town…
