  7. I am very unhappy!!! I had over 300 donuts and now after I logged back in the game tonight I only have like 105! This is ridiculous! I had saved those for so long ever since I started playing this game and now I don’t have them anymore.

  9. So annoying that you can use DONUTS to buy more CASH, but ya can’t use $$$ -2- buy DONUTS is flipping CRAZY, like why isn’t it the other way around ?!?!

    Like

    • Hey AndyAndy, as annoying as that might be, we can’t forget that EA is a company that needs to generate money for themselves. Selling donuts to players is one means of generating that money. If tsto is not profitable for them, then there is no reason for them to keep it up and running. So donut farming is pretty much your only option if you do not want to buy. Personally I find both methods of donut farming to be too much of a hassle, so I just try to make sure I keep enough in game cash going that allows me to always take advantage of the pick again feature when picking one of those 3 cards presented to you after finding Maggie 3 times as well as after you have completed each act in event games. There is also the 5 donuts every week from the monorail yard.

  10. A/B/W – when people post day like this, is there any way to store it in a post somewhere, to make it more searchable/findable down the road, when I don’t remember where I originally saw it posted any more?

  11. I’ve actually created a spreadsheet that shows How many donuts everything costs along with their bonus. It then calculates the “per donut” bonus so you know what you’re getting pound for pound. Turns out that the two best are the jet bike (2% bonus for 30 donuts or a 0.067% per donut bonus) and the devil float (2.5% bonus for 40 donuts or a 0.063 per donut bonus)
    jet bike 30 2% 0.067%
    devil float 40 2.50% 0.063%
    Burns Limo 40 2.00% 0.050%
    Chalk Outline 5 0.25% 0.050%
    Cop Car 40 2.00% 0.050%

    bwalk bb 40 2% 0.050%
    century flower 40 2% 0.050%

    All the other items have bonuses below 0.05% per donutand it was too much to post in this message. Hope that helps!

    • Tracy - 1ltwoody920

      From the hip answer.
      #1 Frink
      #2 Texan
      #3 Duff

      It seems to me that I use these characters most frequently in the Events that EA puts out – maybe not Duff as much, but then again maybe yes.

    • #1 Marge the Witch (with Caldron)
      #2 Frink
      #3 Arnie Pye

      I know Marge the Witch is a skin but her ability to speed up crops is SO awesome. It’s a 4hr task at extra 50% payout plus cutting down grow time, Amazing!
      Frink is just cool. Cool building and a ton of cool events that use him. Plus for a “minor” character he’s in a lot of this game.
      Arnie Pye unlocks the ability to Broadcast Arnie Pye at Channel 6 news station without tying up character so you can still send him on normal tasks.
      Other notables – Anyone who earns 2 in SH. Blue Haired Lawyer, Bumblebee Man, Jasper, Frink, Disco Stu, Squeaky Voiced Teen & Otto.
      Best of Luck!
