    For those of you who don't want to know exactly what we're getting, I won't link the images, but just...just go here.

    The Nighthawk Diner? I'm very excited about that because I wasn't around for the initial release of it

    But 15,000? Isn't that a little cheap?

    More info on the actual working of the event. Seems a lot like Whacking day, with prizes costing a specific amount of event currency.

    Now out on the Apple App store!

    EDIT: I think based on this, we can expect a classic era (or at least non holiday) event every year. Last year was whacking day, this year was Stonecutters. I hope I'm right!

    EDIT: New feature: use the town hall to find out what ALL your characters are doing, tasked included.

    Now in the play store! You may need to uninstall the app for it to show up initially.

    I need help once again - I play Tapped Out on two devices - my iPod and iPad. I use the iPad most of the time, but when it is unavailable I use my iPod to play on the same account

    Now I am updating to the new event on my iPod, and my iPad will be back in a few days - does this mean there might be some issues with my account, like a muddle up because I will only update on my iPad later this week?

    As long as you have an Origin account, your Springfield should be saved across devices.

    Also, the Stonecutter update just dropped, and let me be the first to say that it looks fantastic - no wheels of chance, we're back to personal prizes! We're getting the Satan's Anvil that they didn't give us for Halloween, costumes for Lenny, Carl, Jasper, Wiggum, Disco Stu, Skinner, Burns, Willie, Krusty, Frink, Hibbert, and Homer, and a bunch of decorations and buildings from Homer the Great. This might just redeem Easter for me. (Also, looks like no Whacking Day this year; EA representatives were wrong again.) I can't wait to get home and start it.

    I can't play it. Bluestacks crashed in the middle of reinstalling the game, and now the google play won't open, despite my reinstalling bluestacks. Any ideas?

    No clue. When Bluestacks crashes for me, I just restart my computer and it usually works.

    Yeah, I know - but now if I go and update the game on my other device at a later time this week and play from there, will everything still work?

    Thanks for the help, pkkao

    It's worse than I thought. None of my apps will load.

    I only play on one device, so I can't confirm from experience, but in theory it should work.

    Yeah, it should. But it doesn't. I hope it'll work later.

    I spoke too soon. Now it downloads all the way, then gives off an error.

    It seems like EA is trying to bring people back after the disastrous Easter event. The Stonecutters lodge is only a 16-hour build, and there seems to be zero chance bullshit in here. Everything is purchasable through Stonecutter currency like the events even before I started playing. Considering that the main prizes here are just a shitload of skins, that makes a good deal of sense.

    Much like @Ryan, I'm more into playing with my new Wii U toy and I'm getting bored with this, especially since it hasn't been running smoothly for me. But looks like it's another event? And it works on bluestacks again?

    Actually, no. As my laptop isn't working, I installed it on my desktop with the new version, and it no longer works. So unless I can get the old version back, I'm going to not be able to play any more. It just goes to the fox screen and stops.

    yeah but then you have to send homer on a 4 hour task. does the update actually start after that or is there some other bullshit hurdle?

    Well, looks like they just did. A lot sooner than I expected

    With the 20 donuts for the framerate mess and the new Stonecutters event for the Easter one, EA has redeemed themselves.... for now

    switching to older versions never worked for me. it has something to do with the drivers on your computer, but i can't figure out what. i updated the drivers on mine and downloaded older versions and all that stuff and it still never worked. then i just tried it on an older laptop i don't really use anymore and it worked somehow

    Plenty of free donuts to be had with this event. After finishing the 10-part questline "The Secret of the Cut Stone," you get 20 free donuts. Also, once you get all 10 personal prizes, you can get bonus donuts in the same way as the Halloween 2013 Spooktacular Bonus or the XP level-up bonuses.
