Once you complete the mayan calander for the halloween update, you will gain the mayan character. He will ask a question which will give you the chance to unlock mayan homer and 10 donuts if you get the question correct first time. The quesiton is refering to the tree house of horrors XIII episode where Kang and Kodos mention mankinds highest achienvement is "The Zune" selecting this answer 1st will give you mayan homer and 10 donuts
To create a bridge or a pier place roads over existing water and a bridge will appear automagically.
If you've accidentaly sent one of your characters on an activity or shift an you want to cancel it just simply go onto the land edit mode and select the house/object they are in and then put the house/object in storage. They will then be just walking around as normal and you can place your building back again.
First, make sure you have as many neighbors as possible (I use the comments below each cheat/hint page to look for new neighbors) - you can add me if you want, I play every day and will visit your town regularly.
After adding all your friends/neighbors, visit them. When you visit your friends town(s) ONLY select the buildings with Christmas decorations. WAIT until the "$" symbol regenerates, and tap it again to receive the Santa Coins again. The fastest regenerating building in the Simpson's house. This will work every time, and if you have a lot of neighbors, there is virtually no limit to the amount of Santa Coins you can collect!
Do not be afraid of planting triffids, in fact they give you XP! They give you around 150 XP and eventually you have to do a quest to plant a receive them twice. So don't be afraid to plant them unless you do not want to spend money to only receive XP.
You do not need to have Homer Simpson perform his "Lounging in the Pool" or "Play with the iPad" tasks to unlock the statue and donuts. Simply pull up Homer's task menu, tap on him 10 times repeatedly and they will be unlocked.

It turns out that if you have Mayor Quimby or Chief Wiggum perform illegal or immoral acts, your Springfield Righteousness level drops. If you return them to 'normal' tasks it goes back up. This is important as your rating determines how much extra of a percentage you get when collecting money and XP from buildings and tasks.
Near the mountain area. There is a piece of land that has this item. Buy that land and place it anywhere. You can buy it for 20 doughnuts or have it for free.
The more houses you visit back-to-back, the larger the payout. At first, tapping a friend's house might give you only about 3XP and $17... After visiting maybe 16-or-so neighborhoods (3 houses each), you'll start collecting stacks of cash worth $50... and more with each additional tap. It keeps going up and your only limit seems to be the number of friends you have. BUT!!... if you stop to take a break and return to visiting neighborhoods later, you'll notice that the payout will be reset to a lower amount.
So what are you waiting for?? Add me (patthepotato) and visit my neighborhood!!
When your 'other Springfield' reaches level 20, Side Show Bob appears behind the town hall next to some stores, arrest him and get $50. This happens every time you go in, you don't have to wait 24hrs! You can make $1000 dollars in 5 min while your brown houses tax is genereted. It's boring but it's honest. FYI when your other Springfield updates to level 25 he's gone so make cash while you can!

Get all the Mayan artifacts and the answer to the question is: The Zune
As long as you can get reasonably cheap land, it turns out to be better to build farms of brown houses at $350 each, than to buy one pink house for more than 10 times that, $3700. Even though the game claims you get 1 xp every 5 min for th brown house. In reality the game rounds up your bonuses so you get 2xp/5min vs 12xp every 6 hrs for the pink house. So if you buy a $2600 property and 6 houses for$4700, you can get 12xp every 5 min you play instead of 12xp every 6 hrs. Just keep the game open while you watch tv and collect taxes at commercials and you will easily make up the extra money you spent and rack up lots more experience. Also please add me as a friend, harshmurmur. I'm always happy to lend a cup of sugar to a neighbor.
Cheapest, the Brown homes have the Shortest Reset Time, also. Their Payout might Also,SEEM to be low ... But here is the truth : If you plan on frequent and/or long sessions, creating a Huge Collection of Brown's will earn you More, Faster, than Any Other Method !

If you have the time (and patience) to log in every hour or so, it's more economical to set 1 hour tasks over 6 or 12. For instance, Homer can earn $70 & 17 XP shopping at Kwik E Mart for an hour. Doing this once an hour for 6 hours will give you $420 & 102 XP over the $225 & 55XP given by a 6 hour lounge in the pool ;)
You need lots of friends to complete WHACKING DAY.
I am level 27 withh all premium items and characters, which make me a good tapped out friend for whacking day.
I add everyone.
If you want your friends to leave you hearts (valentines) when they visit, be sure to keep your characters busy at all times.
Valentines are left for the characters, not the buildings. Your visiting friends will only be able to leave those valentines for characters that are busy so make sure to assign everyone a task all the time. Don't just let them wander aimlessly around your Springfield.
To keep collect valentines keep going back to your Springfield and harvest them as soon as they pop up. This allows the next visitor the opportunity to leave you MORE. To level up this during this valentine's period, the key is to visit often and keep all your characters as busy as possible. Having friends who have bothered to update their software helps too. Give them a few days and if they don't update -- drop 'em!
I play everyday, so if you've upgraded your Springfield with the valentine's update be sure to add me: JKNMike
Homer Buddha costs 15 donuts but gives you a premium item every time unlike the mystery box. Eg. I bought 200 donuts I spent most of it on mystery boxes then I clicked this thing called Homer Buddha a d it gave hans moleman after a couple of tries and the mystery box gave me squeekie voice teen after spending like 120 donuts on them mystery boxes. Got 15 donuts? Get homer Buddha
To get the alien to be a character to use in the game you need to purchase the Ray gun which will make the space ship crash ;-) this is an observation from one of my friends game. I don't have enough donuts and won't buy them, so I'm only 80% sure of this hint. Possibly useless lol. Add me Charliegsy28 or Charliegsy. I'm a daily player x
It may be tempting to do the higher reward twenty-four hour jobs but you only get $25 per hour with those. Compare that with the $70 one hour jobs. It may be more effort,but try to always put jobs that finish when you will be in next. So,if in for a ten minute session,put consecutive 45 second jobs and if going for a two-hour drive,put up two-hour jobs.
Add as many people on origin as you can then you can collect from their graveyards, giving you money and either eggs/toilet paper or a treat. You can also choose to egg and toilet paper their town, this will randomly earn you treats, excellent if you are just a few away from buying something.
If you have the time, always go for the shorter-length jobs. The overall payout over time is a lot bigger. I'm on every day. Add me blindman218.
To get extra snakes for prizes visit your friends towns, click on the snake in the top right hand corner then bash away.
If you go to a persons Springfield collect from their graveyard and then go back to the map of other Springfield. THEN GO BACK TO THE PERSON YOU WERE JUST AT AND POOF YOU CAN COLLECT ANOTHER PIECE AND MONEY FROM THE GRAVE YARD.
A way to improve your tree hugging rating that is very cheap, you need to do buy alot of shrubs, that only cost 25, and put them behind houses and buildings so you can't see them. This gets you to 5 stars very quickly.
