    This event has been pretty good so far. I've got all the Act 1 prizes except the last two, which I won't reach anyway, which doesn't really bother me. A good selection of prizes and a decent theme makes an event really enjoyable (as opposed to Clash of Clans, ugh).

    I do have a weird issue where all my characters have their task lists listed normally by length of task (eg 1 hr, then 4hr, then 6hr, etc) EXCEPT for Miss Hoover, who has a 3hr task stuck at the top of her list. It's not highlighted and doesn't correspond to anything in my current missions list, so have no clue what's going on. Makes it a bit of a pain when I'm clicking through my characters for 1hr tasks and ALWAYS send her on the 3hr one by mistake.

    I am aware of that, that doesn't explain the actual issue I mentioned though.

    The "do narobics" one right? So annoying. Also applies to Marge and Luann

    So a Whacking Day mini-event is out. It'll only be out for three days and it comes with a bunch of premium characters like Bare-chested Willie and Ninja Practice Homer, a pet snake, and a huge bundle for 125 donuts.

    How do you add friends by ID? It only gives my the option to add friends through email, or Facebook. I double-checked and my email is verified. Searching Google hasn't been very helpful.

    I think you have to sign in through Origin or whatever EA's sign-in system is now

    Final act! Some really cool locations in this one, with Carl's Dad's Caverns as the big final item. Also, Sneed's Feed & Seed (Formerly Chuck's) is a must own premium item.
    UP AND ATOM!

    Well, the Level 60 update just dropped. Turns out it's the last level update in the game. You can still level up past level 60, but if won't mean anything now. You won't get anymore new characters or buildings from leveling up now. From now on, all new characters and buildings will be added through events.

    Anyway, Level 60 adds the Googolplex Theater and Raphael (AKA, Wiseguy). Also, Gil has a new deal out now where you can buy Duff Gardens, which comes with Lisa's Lizard Queen outfit as an alternate costume for her. The deal will last a week.

    I kinda freaked out when it said Level 60 was the last one. But ah well...hopefully the events will continue to not suck. I haven't been able to win the top prize buildings for each act so I need more buildings in my Wild West but this is it so far



    Still a WIP obviously and I will probably relocate it again. I just moved this all south to new land from the northeastern area of my map where I had a small bit of space I was cramming all these stupid rocks into. But it looked neat with Mt. Carlmore so I might move that down here too.

    I hope they bring levels back in pog form.

    The micro-events, like the NASA (er, NARA) one and the firefighter one were pretty much levels. They were simple, focused on a small theme, and easy to obtain. If we see more of those instead of levels, I'm happy.

    To be honest, I've felt that the writing has been on the wall for levels given we hadn't seen one for 4 months. 60 is a good place to stop.

    Am tempted by Duff Gardens, moreso than pretty much all the characters I don't have but can afford right now!

    60 is a good place to stop on the levels, but I must say I was getting bored towards the end of the second act of this Wild West event, because I've been working so much I haven't had the time to be on the game, so it was impossible to get past a certain prize. The start of the third act has kind of given me a kick up the arse to get the final prize.

    Apparently Duff Gardens gives you more buildings as the quest progresses, so it appears to be a very good deal.

    I'm so tempted by Duff Gardens. I never visit my Krustyland anymore because I just really forget it exists.

    Oh, levels are not dead! You keep going past 60 but events aren't tied to it. That's a fair trade I'd say.

    I'll miss these level updates, but it only makes sense to have it stop at a certain point. Its already quite a journey for new players to reach max level, and it costs a lot of money. Thats actually something I just noticed, that buying a new building costs a lot of money while with mini-events you can atleast save up a new currency for limited time. Upgrading IRS and buying all the land is expensive enough for me, and I already bought all the aspirational buildings in the past by which I ahd to start all over. I like those mini-event replacements so far, and that they stick to a certain theme from certain episodes like the firefighters and Deep Space Homer.

    That Duff Brewery seems hard to pass up. I haven't bought a premium item in this event yet which I usually do, this event didn't really have that much good stuff to me other than maybe the mining mountain. I don't care much for the premium characters.

    Same here on Skinner, though cycling through his skins removes it. I also spotted Human Statue in the main town away from the Squidport. I stored him and placed hi again and he went back to the pier.

    Also, I noticed that levels still do something: they unlock movies you can play at the Googleplex theater. So level 95 will final movie you can set to play there. Not sure what animation you get, or if the marquee changes.

    Yeah I had the same glitch with Skinner but lost it when I changed his costume. Kinda sad now.

    I had the glitch with Skinner too, but it disappeared when I switched costumes.

    Also, ever since this event started, I've had a weird glitch that causes the Human Statue to constantly leave the pier. No matter how many times I put him into storage and then put him back into the game, he just won't stay and keeps leaving the pier.

    same glitches here with the human statue and Skinner and I was hoping they would have Cookie in this western update but i guess Toothless Joe is too similar a character

    Hey, this event comes close to an end, time to give my opinion on it !

    It was a decent event overall. I wasn't too fond of the Western theme, but the prizes were good enough. I still have to go for the Carl's Caverns (plus a bunch of crafting decorations I don't really care for) which by the way would be nice for the forrest area I just started, but so far my favorite prize is the cool Longshot Skinner skin (hehe I already got 2 Skins for Skinner, and zero for Marge. Whoops).

    One thing I disliked was the crafting system which was a pain in the ass when you run one of the 2/3/4 currencies, especially at the end of an act (I was close for not getting Wes Doobner, god bless my in-game friends and their gold miners).

    Here's a look of my Old Springfield (I don't have enough space to let my imagination explode unfortunately) :



    Btw, if anyone is interested my profile name is JohndyDundee.

    This event turned out nicely, its not my favorite but its not bad either. I like how pretty you can now make your Wild West section, even if your freemium. The only downside is that this event takes way to long, and that the new crafting system got a bit confusing at first. But now that I've gotten used to it, its easy to farm and complete the event just in time. Most of the prices were also really good, and the new dirt tiles is probably one of their better new features. Hope they'll continue giving more new tilesets just to shape up some nice new sections in town. The story was also fine.
