    Yeah, when the Valentine's Day event came on, I hadn't unlocked Abe yet, so I had spent the next few days trying to get as much experience as possible and used my donuts to unlock him before the event ended. I almost didn't get Mona.

    So I could understand the logic behind giving players time to catch up on the levels they need to get through certain events.

    Oh man I am loving this event downtime. I went a full day not playing Tapped Out! This, of course, means an event will start tomorrow knowing my luck.
    UP AND ATOM!

    scooped up the greenhouse and moe's house, will get the street cleaner but luckily I have everything else.

    I am having an extremely difficult time finding a place for both items. the front porch for moe's house is frustratingly scaled back, which means it doesn't fit well with my various house rows. I've reluctantly placed it at the edge of my forest section but when new land comes I think I'll drop it next to his petting zoo. (which is currently also on an edge)

    the greenhouse is gorgeous but my park is too small to fit it. resizing that park would be too much work so I figured I'll drop it into Springfield Heights, which I have space issues with too. right now it's awkwardly located next to my minimum security prison. ugh more SH land please!

    So excited to get Moe's House! One thing TSTO lacks is character homes. Still waiting on Hibbert's house, Lenny's shack, Lenny's condo, and a bunch of other houses. I think Martin's house has been on the show.

    I'm surprised we haven't gotten another SH expansion recently. I've even stockpiled 200 of every existing resource in advance in preparation for it.

    So I've been waiting for the Crook and Latter event to end in my new town, because I'm at Level 16 and stuck at the part where you need Mayor Quimby. Finally, today a message pops up saying the event is ending, but I still get to complete the current task. So I guess I'm going to have to be putting out fires until I get to Level 20, all for a fire truck I don't even want. Oh goody.

    Being the poor bastard I am (and the fact I stopped playing for a few months), I've only just finished Mr Burns' money pile. Wonder how long it will take for the Burns skin to pay for itself?

    Now I have the tree to look forward to.

    EA has heard our call once more, we'll finally be getting dirt tiles:



    Also notice the bullet hole in the title, I'm still guessing its going to be the Badlands update. Maybe some cowboy action is involved.

    The new Wild West event is available for download on iOS, and the event is going to last until the end of May.

    Besides the usual event exclusive stuff, they've also added badges to all the icons for the characters to let you know if they've finished or are doing a job, and to let you know what jobs are available. Also, the characters job lists now have icons to let you know if the job comes with an animation or not.

    Ugh those stupid borders on the dirt road...

    Looks like I'm just gonna be using a lot of dirt in my country/mountain areas

    I soooo love this new quest/task book set up. No more having to search for characters who completed jobs.

    Agree with everything kudos said. I'm leaning towards just using the dirt as a dirt road, but I do like how the road can connect to a regular road so I'm torn

    I like that they made it a lot easier to find characters who are ready with their task, which were hard to find troughout my town.

    Small thing but I like that they've taken away the option of paying doughnuts for speeding up house payments, which I always thought was a pointless idea.

    I hate that they added that little "Do not warn me" right below donut spending confirmation, though because I accidentally tapped that shit not knowing it was there and then spent a LOT of freaking donuts on that stupid ass Redwood tree by accident. Like I almost cried at how much donuts I lost.

    Tapped Out has been losing my interest very quickly lately. This event doesn't help at all. I don't like events that aren't really based on episodes. There are elements from episodes (Buck McCoy, Frink's spider, etc) but overall, it's just not that interesting and I don't get excited to unlock things.
    Signature.

    I don't care about all that cowboy stuff at all. But at least I have a big metal spider now

    My city finally starts to look somewhat decent.

    The Far-West Update is okay I guess. It's kind of a cliched theme and I'm suprised they didn't do that before. Atleast we finally got the dirt tile.

    I guess it would be better if the ties to "simpsons canon" were stronger but I'm pretty impressed how smooth this event is

    Really enjoy wrangling up those bandits

    While it's true that the wild west update has a bunch of "non-canon-never-appeared-in-episode items, it should be noted that Springfield does have a desert and the tourist trap cowboy town Bloodbath Gulch. So one could work with the new items to create a Bloodbath Gulch and extend the desert to include items like Satan's Anvil from The Scorpion's Tale.

    I placed my desert in the far south, so it sort of connects with Springfield Gorge and includes Bloodbath Gulch's old west town and Satan's Anvil:

    I don't have any clue where I wanna put my desert. I've bought up a bit more land to do some mass re-arranging, though. Hoping it'll come together soon.

    Problem is the desert is so picky with what you can place on it. I want to put the gorge and trees in the desert, but can't. I also wanted to put Nelson and Moe's homes on the dirt and can't.

    The strangest thing just happened to me... my Tapped Out app just suddenly lost all of it's data and was acting like I had never played it before. Luckily I had already signed up to an EA Origin account long ago, so I should probably get back all my saved data, but now I have to wait until my app finishes downloading all the updates, and I have no idea what caused it lose all it's data in the first place.

    Has this happened to anyone else recently?
