Neighbour Visits Are Pointless!

So, we’ve been enjoying this event for the past number of days and I’ve come to realise something – neighbour visits are completely pointless this time around!

When you visit a neighbour, assuming they’ve updated that is, you get just one spade per action, meaning you get just 3 spades per visit, per neighbour.

Unlike other events though, it is possible to get event currency from all of your neighbours. However it just doesn’t seem worth all the effort this time around.

As for the weird ass green things in neighbours towns – they are more likely to give you crafting materials rather then spades and besides, you can accumulate crafting materials easily enough in your own town.

The premium farmers licence doesn’t do much either. It just doubles the number of spades you get in neighbours towns from 3 – 6. So not worth what they’re asking for it.

So, with that little rant out if the way, will you be visiting your neighbours?

Updated Menu Bar

I’ve updated the sites menu bar with a new tab called ‘Contact EA’. Clicking on the link will now take you directly to the Simpsons dedicated help section and give you the ability to message with tech support to try and resolve any issue you might have.

If you have any other suggestions on how I can improve the site, drop a comment below and I’ll see what I can do!

What Is ‘Cecil’s Tasks’?

unlock_cecil

Fairly early in the event you’ll be prompted by Cecil to complete a series of tasks known as ‘Cecil’s Tasks’. Here’s how they work;

  • There are four tasks to complete each day
  • The day resets at midnight (12am) GMT
  • The tasks vary in length from 1 – 6 hours
  • The tasks are generated randomly so not everyone will have the same tasks
  • Completing the tasks earns you event currency
  • The cost of rushing these tasks costs TRIPLE that of a regular task of the same length
  • The tasks you get depend on what characters you have unlocked

A list of possible tasks and the characters that can complete them will be available tomorrow as I’m still digging through the files to get all of the relevant info for you guys!

What Can I Craft During Act 1 Of The Event?

Here’s a list of everything that you can craft during act 1 of the event. It includes how many materials you’ll need, how much it would cost you to speed up using doughnuts and exactly when they’ll show up in the crafting menu!

Where Did The Monsarno Building Come From?

I’ve seen a few people asking on a few different sites asking why EA chose to base a whole event around a completely random and made up building rather then choose one of the hundreds of better known buildings. Well, fact is, this building HAS been on the show before. Here’s a screenshot of it;

This shot was taken from the episode ‘The Man Who Grew Too Much’ from which we also received an episode tie-in. In the episode Sideshow Bob actually does work here so it makes perfect sense that we get an event based around it. The only question is, is there anyone brave enough to try and recreate what they see in the picture? I won’t be because I like to make up my own layouts and designs as I go along!

The update has been released on both the iOS and Android stores. I’m not too sure about Kindle but they usually end up waiting a little bit longer than others. The event kicks off automatically upon login with a conversation between Cecil, Lisa and Homer.

The first task is for Cecil to make amends. It will take 4 hours, Cecil is awarded for free to every player. More info coming guys, stay tuned!
