The new mini-event is live in Springfield! Provided you’ve downloaded the app store update, that hit yesterday, the event should start up for you when you launch Springfield.
Things kick off by requiring you to build a Brown House. And then you’ll launch the mini event, with the first task requiring Homer to build a Mystery box, 4hrs. And you’ll need Springfielders to collect State Pasta.
I’ll be back in a bit with more info as I run through it…
A quick note about the start time. Totally my mistake guys I’m really sorry. I wasn’t thinking about time conversion yesterday, and saw 1400 and was like “ok that’s 10am et”. It’s not. Daylight Savings Time hasn’t started yet, in the US. It starts during this event (March 10th), so EA accounted for Daylight Savings in the start time despite it not starting yet. Which means, when this event ends 1400 UTC will be 10am ET, but when it started 1400 UTC is 9am ET. So what’s the point of this? Well a really complicated way to say I’m really sorry I screwed up the start time. And don’t forget, in the US, Daylight Savings starts on March 10th.
Note on the Amazon Zoom issues: Some players are reporting it’s fixed, others are saying it’s not. I think it depends on if you’re using Kindle or Fire and which version of each. But honestly, I’m not sure. I think if they fixed it on some, others may be following. If you can hold out a little longer…
So, we’re sitting here in a bit of a TSTO holding pattern. Nothing new has hit so we’re all just kind of waiting to see what happens next. Not much to do but plan some redesigns and work on older questlines you may have avoided.
For those of us who are, relatively, content with our designs and have finished any and all questlines available in the game, this downtime can be a bit boring. So I thought I’d bring a little excitement to our community with a bunch of Simpsons Trivia!
Over the last few days, I’ve be posting a series of Simpsons Trivia questions so you could test your knowledge of our favorite yellow family! We’ve now reached the final day of our downtime trivia challenge! As new content is expected to hit today, this will be the last day of Trivia for this round.
For those who’ve enjoyed the trivia, I’ll be doing what I can to make this a weekly/bi-weekly feature on the site. I really enjoy that so many of you are having fun with it, and this site is supposed to be all about the fun, right?! Anyway….time to brush up on your Simpsons skills because today’s trivia starts now!
Day 3 of our Downtime Simpsons Trivia is in the books, time to see how y’all stacked up with your fellow Addicts! Before we get to the leaderboard, I want to remind you that this is for fun. There’s no prize, other than bragging rights, for coming in first place with this round of Trivia. As we finish out the trivia I may use Random.org to give away a couple of (small) prizes, but that’s not what it’s about right now.
Right now this just something fun to keep us all entertained during the downtime and to bring the Addicts Community a little closer together. 🙂
