    I've bitched about this elsewhere on the forums in the past, but I still think great characters from voice actors who passed away should live on in comics and in voiceless mediums like Tapped Out. They are still great funny characters and I think they can live on without replacing the voice actors.
    Yeah, what the hell is up with that bit where Lyle Lanely just disappeared? I know The Simpsons has officially retired Hutz and McClure out of respect, but it very much seems like the only way the producers would grant EA to use Lanely is if he just vanishes. It's strange, if not commendable on just how far they are willing to go in ensuring that respect is granted.

    Seeing all the houses with lots of buildings and limited-time characters makes me really depressed.

    A lot of them come back after a while, so if you didn't get them the first time, you could get them in another event.

    It's true. I felt like I'd missed out when I first started playing too, but now I have more limited crap than you could poke a stick at.

    The game has no sound for me. It originally worked if I wore headphones, but now there are no sounds at all.

    at least Lanely disappearing makes sense in the story (why would he rip a town off and then stick around?). but yeah, i see no reason not to include mcclure and hutz as non-speaking characters. hell, with how shameless they are these days i'm honestly surprised they haven't recast and reintroduced them to the show

    They can be shameless with the characters, but I've never seen any evidence that they treat their staff with anything but total respect.
    Not that I think it would be that disrespectful for the characters to live on. Phil Hartman loved Troy McClure, from what I've heard. Maybe he would have been happy for the character to continue in his absence.
    Though I'm in no position to make a judgement. May he rest in peace.

    i mean, lunch lady dora and how quickly they were ready to replace shearer makes me think they don't respect the cast all that much, but i admit to not really following anything simpsons related all that closely for the last 10+ years

    also, even as far back as season 11, didn't they kill off maude in the most ridiculous fashion they could in part because they were pissed the actress quit?

    i mean, i'm sure they have a lot of respect for hartman, but bringing back mcclure and hutz would be a huge story. and since that seems to be all they're going for these days i'm surprised they've shown the restraint (so far)

    No, the game has no sound regardless of whether I mute, uninstall and reinstall, turn the phone off and on, or anything.

    I also really hope that they release this game to a non-mobile format at some point.

    No, but that's not a problem since all my current friends are either on this forum, on another forum or IRL, so if it gets annoying I just need to contact them. Thanks to aware me anyway, I stopped tagging in other cities.

    Anyway, what the hell do we already have to build Matt Groening's house at level 25 ?? It's incredibly expensive, and unfortunately I'm that type of person who wasts his money on the most expensive things first, especially when you get a new character from it.
    It's really annoying because I have a shitload of other buildings to build, let alone the lands and the decorations I want.

    Also, does R.O.S.A. have a point in the town ? All it seems to do is wandering without the possibly to give it anything to do.
    o shit its 2021 and still havent posted on this forum

    Some characters don't have tasks. I don't really get the point of them. Decorations, I guess.

    And how can you know when a character can do tasks or not when you're buying one ?

    I'm not sure if you can. I've made the mistake of buying some who don't. The description can hint at it though. I know the boardwalk entertainers and the Funzos don't have tasks. Neither does the K-9 Officer.

    You make a good point. Perhaps I should rephrase: I've never seen any evidence that they treat their deceased staff with anything but total respect.
    Though just on Harry Shearer, if he did go, they'd loose so many characters they probably couldn't continue. There's no way Fox would cancel a show that rakes in so much money for a sentimental reason like that.

    Google them. There are whole sites dedicated to Tapped Out which will tell you what a character's tasks are.

    How do you get rid of the “Currently in-app billing is not available for you” error? Logging out of and back in my Origin account does NOT help me.

    Is that an iOS problem? I know you can disable in-app purchases through iOS settings.

    Is the Maggie quest just an event or a now added part to the game ? Because it's still going on my game while the winter event is long gone now. Oh well, I will win a donut atleast.

    I think the play dough factory game is a permanent addition.

    Uh ok, on the wikis it's presented as an event, which is quite strange to me.

    Anyway, YAAASSSS

    Oh boy: EA is hinting that a new event is coming based on "$pringfield" and hinted at an obvious gambling aspect. Roulette wheels, slot machines or whatever this may be, we could be pulling our hair out.

    The Burns Casino will be a welcome addition on my Squidport. Hoping for Howard Hughes Burns and Floreda Lisa skins.

    Nice update. The new feature that is zone selecting is pretty neat. The prices are also very nice, but they ask so much to be obtained ! I will totally rush on this one.
