Other changes made[edit]

December 16 update ("v4_12_Janey")[edit]

  • Writers Building's task has changed from "Making Magic Happen" to "Writing for All the Characters".
  • A glitch with the Writers Building is now whenever you exit the game, go to Krustyland or the friend screen and re-enter your town, the Writers Building will reward you wish cash every time irrespective of the timer to when it should be available.
  • A 12 hour task at the Open Air Stage was added for Lurleen (if you have her). The Lurleen's Country Music Show costs Cash.png150 to start and pays Cash.png800 and XP.png200. It uses the same audio as the Skinner Sisters when you start the task.
  • Sideshow Opera's payout at the Open Air Stage was changed from Cash.png990 and XP.png220 to Cash.png900 and XP.png150. This puts the task in a more logical place for earnings, but it does decrease the advantage of keeping Mel singing.
  • Janey was added to the list of kids who can be bounced at the Moonbounce. Code was also added to fix the issue with Willie's task at the Moonbounce not being enabled.
  • Janey has been added to the list of characters who can shop at the Kwik-E-Mart and Go To School.
  • Kang was removed from the list of characters who can Drink At Moe's.
  • Thanksgiving 2014 and Black Friday 2014 triggers were removed.
  • The sounds for Patty and Selma have been switched. These are the sounds played when you tap the character, assign them tasks, and when they complete tasks. All along Patty has been using the Selma audio files and vice versa.
  • Building base multipliers updated. Level 40 buildings are now at the base rate, levels 41 & 42 at 1.3 times the base rate, level 43 at 1.4 times, level 44 at 1.6 times, level 45 at 2 times, level 46 at 3 times, and levels 47 and 48 at 4 times.
  • Animations fixed in the quest "You Got Your Schokolade In My Erdnussbutter Pt. 4".
  • Happy elf victory dance removed to prevent potential game crash when leaving the Toy Workshop.
  • Zombie pet explosion animation fixed.
  • A potential menu gang involving Gil fixed.
  • "The Krusty-est Place on Earth Pt. 1" quest potential crash fixed.
  • A bug when selecting Castles as a friend was fixed.
  • All 4th July (both 2013 and 2014) characters have been moved to the group 4th July and the name got fixed.
  • Default building premium 6 hour earnings has changed from Cash.png175 and XP.png20 to Cash.png175 and XP.png18.
  • Default job rewards for 36 hour tasks has changed. Regular characters' 36 hour tasks will now pay Cash.png825 and XP.png210 rather than Cash.png750 and XP.png200. Premium characters' tasks will now pay Cash.png1,240 and XP.png315 rather than Cash.png1,100 and XP.png300. It looks like when they added default rewards for 32 hour tasks they used the 36 hour values and then didn't adjust the 36 hour ones higher until now.
  • Clash of Clones, Valentine's Day 2013, Valentine's Day 2014 and Easter 2014 items can now be placed in Krustyland.
