    Yet another hotfix was released for Android users today. (None yet for iOS users yet, unfortunately.) It seems to have improved my lag issues a little.

    As for my complaint with EA about the lag issue, they said that it was a "high priority" issue right now (expected, since Tapped Out isn't the only Origin game experiencing lag) and their Studio Team is working on it right now. No free donuts given, although the Level 41 questline does reward you with 1 free donut down the line.

    Glad we get another wife for free, even though she's not being used much in the show at all. The jewelry store seems quite expensive.
    yeesh $800,000 for the jewelry store and 100k+ for the bloodmobile.

    I'm guess the next new building will be a cool million?

    Can confirm. The icon is just a cash icon that you see above a building.

    My lag seems to have really improved this morning. They are still working on fixing it for some Android users and most iOS users right now.

    How long has this lag issue lasted for? I play Tapped Out on my iPod Touch and I only noticed it lagging the last time I played (yesterday).

    Ever since the Easter update was removed. If I remember correctly, that was May 13.

    Lag's better for me, though I may not be playing much. I play on my laptop, and it overheats really easily.

    To apologize for the lag, EA released an update today that gives every single player 20 free donuts. All you have to do is log into your game.

    Not bad, EA.

    If anyone was locked out during the tie in, it has been extended until the 27th. I have nothing but respect for EA right now.

    Luann's 24hr task is to ride in the MegaGlobe which is a pretty cool outdoor task. I tend to send all my characters out on their best outdoor tasks all the time so visitors to my Springfield can bask in the fact that I have every character in the game. Well, I'm pretty sure I do anyway...

    Oh true. So far I've only got the first prize with FP. I think I'm about halfway to the second prize, whatever that is.

    Has anyone else had connectivity issues today? I was just playing Tapped Out about twenty minutes ago and my connection to the server dropped out three times. Not only that but when I opened the app it asked me to log back in to my Origin account (for the first time in months) and then it did something really weird.

    After logging in it started loading and then a window came up with a dialogue box that said my account was already signed into another device. I knew this was impossible so I pressed retry. It came up a second time but on the second retry it loaded properly. Very weird.

    ^ That happens occasionally when the Origin servers are down. Sometimes they're down only for certain people, and sometimes they're down for everybody. When you get the warning that your account is signed into another device, you can just hit "Play Now" and ignore the warning.

    I asked this question a while ago, and pkkao gave me some advice, but I just need a walkthrough of what to do:

    I am now on Level 22, and I've been playing without an Origin account (the reason for this is because my brother used to play on the same device, and then I took over and he was around Level 5, and he never created an Origin account from the beginning). He claims that if you create an Origin account now, the entire town will be erased and you will have to start from the beginning, which is terrifying for me because I've been playing obsessively to progress in this game. If it is any help, I play on an iPad.

    How do I go about creating an Origin account and still having my current Springfield linked to that account? I can't seem to get any help from EA (mainly because to ask them a question...you need an Origin account). I would appreciate anyone telling me how to fix this, or directing me to someone or somewhere that can help me.

    Thanks guys

    Creating an Origin account won't make you lose your game. I'm not sure how you do it now (I signed up before they updated some of the Origin mechanics of the game), but there should be a "sign up for Origin" button somewhere (when I did it, it was in the friends menu). It takes you through the Origin process, and when you're signed up, you get 2 free donuts. Make sure you put an age of over 14, because they will close any accounts from players under 14 years old.

    If anyone wants to add me on Tapped Out, my Origin name is gaTrebU.
    Just started playing late last week so I'm just building the foundation of my Springfield.
    Will be more than happy to help you work towards your FP stockpiling goals.

    Added you both. My Springfield is pretty messy right now, but I plan to overhaul it sometime this summer once I collect enough money for the land expansions.

    Does anyone know if there's a surrounding wall / fence around Springfield elementary ?
    Always seems like it's just out in the open surrounded by trees and bushes. Like logic dictates there would be a fence surrounding to protect children from danger.

    This is what my Springfield Elementary looks like. No fences or walls. I assume EA wanted to leave the fence design up to the player with all of those fence decorations.

    I'm trying to build my Springfield as close to the actual show as I can purely by memory. So, because I've barely watched The Simpsons from season twelve onwards the new buildings are just sort of placed anywhere I feel.

    As for Springfield Elementary though, I don't recall a specific surrounding perimeter and I'm sure it's changed over the years that the show's been on the air. Between season one and nine however, I do remember seeing both fences and walls surrounding the school so I've used a bit of both. Here's mine:



    Speaking of messy Springfields, more than half of my Springfield is still an unorganised mess. I don't have work this weekend so I might spend a few hours in bed (it's already getting pretty cold down here in Kiwi land) making my Springfield look nice.
