    I haven’t recieved any prompts in order to enable this mini event ever since the convicts started showing up in my town. I tap on them, I have Homer and a few others free, but nothing has happened. I don’t know whats going on.

    • Have you updated the app to the newest version (it should be the normal green version of the app icon and loading screen)? If you have then have you also completed the quest “Oops, I Did It Again” since you need to complete that quest in order to get the event to start.

  2. What even is the point of these convicts outside the 15 you need to catch for each level of the quest? The annoying pop up message constantly saying my town is maxed out in convicts and to catch them. Why bother to catch them after the 15 have been caught? Catching them doesn’t net me anything extra…no XP, no coins, no donuts. There is absolutely no point in them hanging out once you’ve caught what the quest requires each time.

  4. Mostly lurker here, but max’ed level and such. I see a few (probably not a lot) of comments about too many items (10K+) and no land. I still have plenty of free land space and room for lots of characters and items. I have at least a couple of neighbors also max’ed out (939) and they have empty land space. For me, I do *not* buy (with donuts) items that I think are not my style, so that probably accounts for items (characters and land/water thingies). However, I still have a bunch of things in my storage that I cannot sell nor delete, so I have to keep them. I have a question regarding that: if EA let the players delete and/or sell unwanted storage items, then would that help? Of course, probably with the understanding they are gone forever. No changing ones mind. I would like more water/ocean space though. 🙂

    • I think we wouldn’t necessarily need to delete stuff from storage if EA would just give us a better way to search through storage (by typing stuff, preferably with tags as well as names, so you don’t have to remember exactly what the name of the item is). I also wish that, when you scroll through inventory looking for something, and then remove it from storage, when you go back into inventory, it would pick up where you left off. Often I’ll scroll though and try an item to see if it looks right in a certain design, find that it’s not there right scale or whatever, and then end up having to scroll all the way back to where I left off browsing, to try something else.

      • Since there are a lot of people reading and responding, let me try an old question. I have apu’s wife and crazy cat lady. I also have the Christmas skin for the buildings but they are locked in my storage and idk how to unlock them. I wrote on these type of sites and they said contact EA. So I did.. EA said I have to fix it through these types of chats. So I got some back and forth and don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?

      • Sandrashill,

        The almost non existence of inventory management is one of my biggest gripes about TSTO.

      • My issue with land is I have dozens of land parcels available, but they won’t let me spend the 100s of million of coin I have to buy them, only tokens. I want to spread out my town more.

        • Too bad you missed the recent re-release of Golden Goose Realty! Keep an eye out for that for the future…hopefully they’ll re-re-release it, as that’s a way you can earn more land tokens.

  5. As much as I like chasing down convicts (hold still, you little maggots) I was wondering if they’re actually earning us anything? I don’t see money or XP going up when I smite them.

    • No.. just collect the 15 you need to do the task otherwise your tasks for that prize won’t be completed.
      They do add up back after you have collected all 15.. and your town will get maxed out.. but it starts all over again once you catch 15 of them for each prize.

  6. Is there any benefit to squishing criminals (other than when it’s listed as part of the quest(s)? Just curious.
    Also, thanks TSTO crew for all of the time and energy you devote to this site, it is much appreciated!

  7. just Tapping “escaped convicts” makes me 😂 (in a good way)!

    Thank You (and Safi) for keeping Tappers updated … stay safe and squeeze in another vacation! 😀🤘🏻

  8. Game crashes/won’t load since the update yesterday. Have done everything including deleting and reloading it and still no change. Tried to contact EA but they want my Mayhem ID, which requires a screenshot, that can only be taken after the game loads, which of course is the problem to begin with. Any suggestions?

    • Safi had this issue yesterday. He said he completely powered off his phone and powered it back on and that worked for him.

      • Yep, tried that, too. I’m on an older iPad Air with the iOS maxed out at 12.5.4, wondering if that is the problem? EA says TSTO should work on iOS9 and later, though. Thanks for the quick reply!

        • I have a feeling that’s the issue…they may have started to phase out older systems. Or it’s just a temporary bug with the previous one, where they overlooked something as they prepped for the new iOS to come out. It’s happened before…

          • My guess is that the problem is across the board with iPads, mine’s a 6th Generation model running IOS 14.7.1 and crashing as soon as I ‘Tap to Continue’ but the game is running sweet on my iPhone 8. I reckon we’ll have to wait for someone to give EA Bob a prod …

      • Day 3 of game crashing. Splash screen comes up and “Tap to Continue” makes the donut spin for a minute and then crashes out to the iPad’s home screen. Tried it on my iPad Mini, also maxed out with iOS12.5.4, and it crashes every time on that one, too.

    • I think many people like us (using older hardware) are experiencing the same problem. IOS is a fairly robust operating system yet I have seen this type of “crash” happen before. It’s rare. My suspicion is, it’s the equivalent of the Microsoft blue screen of death. Usually caused when there is a conflict of RAM usage. The difference with this update is the re-introduction of tapping on villains (snakes, zombies or whatever) Some old code has been cut and pasted into this update. It works but requires tweaking or de-bugging as we used to call it. For example,This is why when the required amount of villains have been tapped for the quest they are still (unnecessarily) being produced. The banner saying your town is full of villains also pops up when that part of the quest is complete.
      EA are to be congratulated in trying to give the game a new coat of paint. After all, Let’s face it many of us are quite/very bored of what we have been presented with for the last few years so a change is welcome.
      I think all we can do is be patient and hope that the programmers can work it out.
      We lost enough players with the verification code debacle. Let’s hope we don’t lose more.

  9. I’m super excited about the crooks… I had played from 2013-2017 then left for awhile… picked it up again last year when my daughter started playing and getting very bored of same old event style. I miss the events of old… where you had several things going on, not just the prize track… there were tappables, neighbour prizes, crafting. (I know crafting wasn’t popular but I liked it.. my inventory is full of crap I’ll never place in my town… crafting just lets you get what you’ll use).
    I really hope EA pulls the stops out for Halloween and Xmas and adds variety.

    Also Alyssa, thanks for being here in all these 8 years. I have been on the site for nearly that long and this is always my go to for updates. I miss the others too, but really 8 years is a long time for a game and people move on, so props to you!

    • Thanks! 🙂 I promise I wasn’t looking for accolades…just wanted to explain that I really am insanely busy and can’t “do it all” like I used to around here.
      And yes, 8 years is a REALLY long time. It’s like 45 years in the gaming/blogging world!

    • Agreed! I’ve been playing since about 2013 too, and I agree! It’s great to see at least one of the extra things in Tapped Out of old back again! I started playing because my kids were and the events where you needed to visit other towns and played against other players (remember the World Cup soccer storyline when you actually competed against friends?). I hope this is a trend that continues. And thanks to all the tsoaddicts for all you do! The insights and tips and posts are a big part of what kept me tappin’

  10. Wouldn’t it have been fun if you had to tap the orange criminals in your neighbours towns?
    Missed opportunity EA 😔

    • I went look for my neighbors today and all gone. Is there any explanation of what happened to our neighbors? Was it a glitch or EA plan?

    • Have you tried checking your neighbors’ towns for escaped convicts? I haven’t tried checking yet myself, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the escaped convicts aren’t in our friends’ towns. Of course, Alissa would know for sure about that since she has access to game files.

  11. Why aren’t you addressing all of the log in problems related to the new release ? Just look at your comments and the EA Issues

    • Because I’m not EA?

      Remember: I’m 1 person. I have a full-time job. I have a husband and two kids. And let’s be honest, I’m freaking tired as hell. We’re lucky I got this post knocked out in a timely fashion. I only have so much time in my day to devote to this site, and that time has really dropped off dramatically over the years. And again, let’s be honest, if I didn’t post it in a timely fashion I’d have people yelling about that. Can’t please everyone.

      Generally, if I don’t have the problem myself I don’t post about it until I know more about it. And at the moment, I don’t know enough about it. I have not had the free time in my day to devote to the issue. Safi did have the issue himself yesterday and is in the comments posting about a potential workaround to those commenting that they have the issue.

      I’ve been doing this for 8 years. I’ve seen a lot of issues come and go. Some I write about, those that are really widespread generally, and some I don’t. Some are bigger than others, but generally, they’re always resolved in a timely fashion (except for those, like the rollback glitch that are never resolved)…despite folks freaking out about the sky falling. My advice is always the same with these issues…try uninstalling/reinstalling, clearing your cache, restarting/powering off/on your device, and if all else fails contact EA directly…as they are the ones who can potentially fix the issue.

      • Hi Alissa

        I appreciate the work that you do. I’ve used this resource for most of those 8 years and thought It was awesome.

        As for any gripes, concerns or program questions I’ve posted, it was almost always for the EA lurkers which I believed did check the Addicts page. ;D

      • Well said ⭐

    • Hey Clay

      How come you’re not checking with EA / EA Help ? Or the Official TSTO Facebook Page?

      Yes, this Game App isn’t perfect, but there are plenty of times it’s not an EA Snafu …. it’s a Tapper’s Device (and this has been discussed enough times that you can look up 🔎 at TSTO Addicts).

  12. I’m ecstatic they keep providing us ANY new content (even if they are the same old slogs). Also glad to see tappables back myself!

  13. Can anyone do tasks in these houses or on the boat? Or will they just be for show and to collect a couple bucks?

  14. I am rather amazed that something “new” has appeared into our games, something we’ve been missing for the last 3-4 years now! Well, it isn’t new exactly, but I think we all have missed doing something else than this regular 4 episode/1 episode events that has been for way too many years now. The re-addition of chasing crooks into the game is welcome! I hope they add more features again in the events!
