    In the process of giving my Springfield a much needed redesign. Expect it to be done sometime before the year 2084:





    The road from Mr. Burns' Mansion leads directly to the Power Plant:

    My Springfield's quite the mess right now. I have the Stonecutter Lodge wedged in between a bunch of buildings for the convenience of my neighbors. I'll probably uproot my town and redesign it (the current design is for the fastest money-earning, so I don't have to go through a massive area to collect everything) to look better after this update ends and we're in "garbage time" again.

    Well, unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure that it's the only gate in the game.

    Yeah, unfortunately. I'd love it if all fences had an accompanying gate.

    Woah, what did you do with 100 or so donuts? Last time you posted a screenshot it was at 300 or so...

    For the first time in a long time, I'm constantly playing an event not because I need to play it daily to get all the rewards, but because I'm actually enjoying it! Kudos, EA! No more Easter wheels please.
    UP AND ATOM!

    I'm pretty far behind on this event, since I didn't get to start playing it until like 2 days after it started. I seriously hope the time will be extended. I don't even have the 3rd prize yet.

    But like @Captain Squid said, I'm actually enjoying this event. Here's hoping we'll get the monorail or something equally as awesome next!

    Guess its time to decorate my ultimate Squidport.

    It was at 209 last time.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up for getting back into the old account; once EA discovers a hacked account, they usually delete the game associated with that account. But since you're hacking the game, it's not like you've lost anything.

    It isn't that, it's a glitch. Lots of people are having it.

    So who's noticed Skinner and Homer's new Stonecutter Dialogue? They both sing a snatch of the song.

    Right, so just keep your fingers crossed that whoever's examining your case doesn't realize that the money you've spent on the game doesn't match up with the number of donuts you have.

    All the Stonecutters have unlock messages related to "We Do." Most sing lyrics directly from the song, with slight modifications:
    Who holds back the British crown? Willie
    Who keeps the metric system down? Skinner
    Who keeps Atlantis Springfield off the map? Carl
    Who keeps the Martians my people under wraps? Number 51 (the alien)
    Who holds back the electric car? Frink
    Who rigs every Oscar night? Krusty

    But there are some original ones too:
    Who decides who gets shingles? Hibbert
    Who holds the carrot and the stick? Jasper
    Who always gets free upsized meals? Lenny
    Who keeps Springfield beer kegs filled? Moe
    Who wire taps the NSA? Quimby
    Who makes sure the rich stay rich? Burns
    Who decides which cars to boot? Wiggum
    Who knows who's in and who is €œout?€ Smithers
    Who controls the evening news? Brockman
    Who gets exempted from state sales tax? Arnie Pye
    Who gets funky every night? Disco Stu
    Who knows where my teeth are now? I don't! Grampa
    Who likes singing drinking songs? Homer

    Also, most of these characters got Stonecutter numbers from this update:
    #908 Homer (from the episode)
    #51 Martian (from the episode; references Area 51)
    #29 Burns (from the episode)
    #12 Lenny (from the episode)
    #14 Carl (from the episode)
    #1 Number One (from the episode)

    Everyone else got new numbers:
    #2 Dr. Hibbert (I'm guessing it's a reference to the fact that he identified Homer's birthmark in the episode, hopefully it isn't a scatalogical reference)
    #5 Jasper (not sure why)
    #21 Moe (reference to the legal drinking age)
    #22 Quimby (not sure why)
    #36 Krusty (again, not sure why)
    #50 Wiggum (unsure why)
    #59 Smithers (maybe a reference to his homosexuality, being 10 off from 69? Or am I looking too far into it?)
    #66 Brockman (Channel 6)
    #67 Arnie Pye (references dialogue showing that Brockman outranks Arnie Pye, but I don't know why they're 66 and 67)
    #79 Disco Stu (references the year 1979, when disco was popular)
    #85 Willie (no clue)
    #111 Grampa (maybe referencing his age?)
    #314 Frink (obvious pi reference)
    #600 Skinner (no leads)

    I'm fairly certain all of these numbers are references to certain aspects of the character. Can anyone fill in the blanks?

    Maybe you're right...
    Anyway, I found a new hack which resets your donut count every time the app syncs specifically to avoid suspicion.

    For anyone who needs more emblems (so everyone) and has more than 60 friends, I've noticed that tapping on the Stonecutter Lodge in friends' towns earns you 5 emblems instead of the usual 1 for all other buildings. So what I'm doing is going through and tapping only the Stonecutter lodges until my 60 actions are used, and then going back to tap the other buildings. It does take more time, but the payout is five-fold.

    EDIT: Actually, you don't really need 60 friends. You can still use this technique to get as many 5-emblem Stonecutter Lodges tapped as possible, even if you end up only getting 1 emblem for the last couple of actions.

    Do you have an idea how many boardwalk tiles that actually is? Like, even just a rough estimate?

    The standard limit is 150 boardwalk tiles, unless you were around during the late 2013 glitch that awarded people Squidport tiles from handshakes. I happened to be around then, and I have upwards of 200 tiles.

    I've missed three 400-emblem prizes so far, and they were all within 20 minutes of resetting. It's kind of frustrating considering how much of a difference 400 emblems can make.

    On the plus side, just won 30 donuts

    I've decided to buy that Pyramid for 100 donuts, it just looks to cool. And it pays me 45 emblems every 8 hours.

    Anyone know who JDGodbey is? Is he on this forum? I just got a request from him (and added him).
