Normally I don’t really write about patches that hit our game, since typically it’s minor changes few will notice, however, a patch hit our games a short while ago that many of you will notice.
With this patch (in-game update, so it will download automatically. Nothing you need to do in the app store) a lot of the crap that was broken with the Yearbook Mystery Box was corrected.
-Items that were unique (like the Pride of Ulster Banner) are now removed from the box.
-Little Helper Ralph’s quests can now be done at the Brown House, preventing that jam of questlines if you didn’t have the Toy Workshop.
-If you won Blackbeard but didn’t have the Airship you’ll now be given the Airship for free (check your inventory for it). This corrects that questline jam as well.
-And I believe the issue with the RayGun and flying UFO has now be corrected as well.
Additionally, the Yearbook Mystery Box is still in the game. You can access it via the Premium Menu (Homer Buddha Icon) in your store. (unless, of course, you’ve cleared it out. If it’s empty then you can no longer access it)
And that’s it, from what I can see. At the moment no new content in the game and no spoiler info from EA. We’ll see what happens as the day progresses. I can tell you typically, if new content is hitting the server we’ll see it around 5:30-6:30pm ET. I’ll be checking to see what, if anything, hits. If I see anything you guys know I’ll be posting about it. So in the meantime sit tight and get inspired by everyone’s awesome designs in this week’s Showoff! 🙂
For those viewing a little before showtime, sit tight and it’ll show up in the video below shortly. For those viewing during the live stream, just hit play and you’ll get tuned it. You also have the ability to go back (rewind) in case you missed something. 🙂 And for those joining after the live stream, you can view the recording of the video right here.
No matter how, or when, you’re viewing thanks for watching and we hope you have fun!
For this episode of Addicts Live, we’re donning our tin foil hats and taking on the brigade of players who seem to think the game is ending immediately. We’re also tackling the latest mini-event to hit our games, A Classless Reunion, and the Yearbook Mystery Box. And we’re playing a little “The Way We Was” trivia.
As always, we’ll be answering your questions and sharing your comments live!
You won’t want to miss all the laughs this episode has to offer, so join us live for the fun! (of course, if you can’t make it live watching the replay is still pretty awesome too!)
So, it turned out that it wasn’t time for another Major Event…so we got another Mini-Event…which was proceeded by another Mini-Event. And in both cases, they are 2 week events, that barely stretch a week in real time. Which leaves a lot of down time to do what you want. Play. Don’t play. Stockpile. Design. Or just gnash your teeth that the events aren’t longer…or shorter…or more complex…or less complex.
But, this time, they have added an AMAZING twist on the Mystery Box. It is kind of a SUPER Mystery Box…with More than 700 items available!!! It. Is. Overwhelming!!! Continue reading →
