  1. Well, the Halloween update is now out for Android devices (since 9/19, apparently), but it’s not yet available for iTunes, which is disappointing because I want to hurry and download the update to my iPad as soon as possible. I don’t see why Apple has to delay the release of new updates for applications. It just hurts their customer base, in my opinion.

    • I stand corrected about the availability of the Halloween update for iTunes. the update wasn’t appearing for me because I had to refresh my connection to the iTunes App Store.

  2. Alissa, know it’s been a while, but can we get a complete list of the characters that still have tests to make Krustyland tickets? Not sure what I would spend them on, but since Krustyland is now moved into the Main game, it would night be nice to have a list. I found an old one, but it did not have the princess in it. And I know she has a task

    • Sure, when I find the several hours to write it. Right now I’m functioning on 20 minute intervals of sleep, you’re lucky you’re getting blog posts in general. Krustyland tickets aren’t a high priority for me. If someone else wants to write it I’ll post it but it’s not something high up on my list right now. Sorry.

      • Sorry, didn’t mean to stress you out. I just thought maybe EA had a list somewhere and since you have an “in” with them you could get that for us. I didn’t think or expect you would have to create that yourself. my bad.

        • Yes all the info we’ve got here is from us and checking in game. Ea doesn’t provide us with any info (other than the spoilers we just started getting). So every post you see here usually takes hours for us to research and write

  3. Are all bets subject to moderation, or just for us newbies?

  4. Okay, for whatever reason my Disapproving Squirrel character has been claiming I need to do a quest to unlock her 8hr task with Marge. But I completed the entire chain during the I&S event when she first showed up…?

    • Yep, I’ve had the same thing happen with the quest lines for both Carl and Wolfcastle. No other negative impacts to my game yet, but I’m a little worried based on previous glitches.

  5. Now that Krustyland is no more, does anyone think EA will do something with Springfield Heights? I’m not talking about getting rid of it, but opening some land and maybe adding on some new buildings. They added those 8 hour tasks to make it easier to collect items, but then you reach a point where it’s a waste of time. The only time I do anything with The Heights any more is when I’m stuck doing a daily task.

    • I like to put things in the Heights to annoy the rich people, like the Slaughter House and colorful Brazilian favela houses and volcanos. So I do have to wander around frequently to pick up income from any actual buildings.

      But since I also have everything out that gives XP bonus, stuff is just scrunched together even more than in the poor side. So I would love to have more room to spread out (and annoy the rich people more).

  6. i have been sssooooo busy, more that I expect, but baby will be ONE!!!! this Wednesday! hurray!!! I cant believe 🙂
    she is premature, but she is growing healthy and happy. 🙂
    i haven’t played tsto in a few weeks, or months, but , to be honest, I havent missed, I came to.the blog once.or.twice per week, not as much often as I wish… ok.. I need to be honest,.I havent been around.
    the last.time I came was when the little addict baby boy was born, before that I saw a new banner and was searching about Alissa pregnancy 😥😳

    i wish/expect that I can play the Halloween event. I love Halloween!!!

    have a great week 🙂

  7. Question for our awesome Moderators:
    I faithfully played this game multiple time a day every day since 2013.
    Staring with about 5 months ago, I only log in a few times a week. I even stopped farming.
    I remember for years when an open post in a Sunday would generate hundreds of responses. And posts during events would have a lot of interaction also.
    As mods, have you noticed a lot less web traffic to tstoaddicts or anything else make you believe that the game may be winding down in turns of users playing?

    I know for me I would be more inclined to play if there were a collect all button. With over 400 characters I don’t even send people out on 24 hour tasks anymore because collecting is a pain in the rump
    Thanks !

    • Less interaction for sure. Hits are down, but not to a point where I think the game is ending. Just not as high as they were during, say, Stonecutters. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that the game is A LOT easier than it used to be.

  8. In my B game something strange happened: My Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop building disappeared. Where it was is now a selection of glitched graphics such als small dollar signs, partial characters and the like. Selecting or tapping the area doesn’t indicate anything present in the place. Anybody else experience something similar?
