Hey all - level 36 player here. Pleased with the new update. However I almost cried when I realized that the Halloween Floor tiles were gone from the store... right after I covered over them in my town haha. I like to reorganize things with new releases, keeps the game fresh, and I wanted to put the new Chinese floor where my Halloween floor was, which means I moved the Halloween items. So upsetting that I can no longer repurchases the tiles. Disappointed that you can't stock floor tiles or something. Or move them. Now my Halloween section just seems empty I can understand the Halloween items being limited (the buildings, etc), but the floors? That greatly limits the customization of my street, and I'm sure other's, after the items expire. Super bummed. If nothing is done about this, they better be back at least in October!

But really love the ability to paint buildings. Does it change the color of the people in the house at all if you say, have one character in it and then upgrade the house?

I also noticed you can paint buildings, buildings tell you what trait they have (food, shade, game) and the ore got a new sound effect when collecting. Though I also noticed the number of visits to upgrade things went up...I think. Glad to see the globe is still an option for friends but do favor the list a bit more.

Most of the Chinese stuff costs lots of flooz but its Ok since I have the same income of flooz anyway.

Also thought that satirical quest was a pretty clever move from the devs.

Here's to another month of Happy Street! (before I inevitably end up bored until the next update...)

Also whats this about a bus limit?
You can't buy more bus stop anymore , only one maybe ? Not sure because I have more than that .

The paint feature is only for houses; and it only changes the color of the house and not the inhabitants.

The bus stop limit is 10 I believe. But if you built multiple bus stops before the update, those would stay even if it exceeded the 10 limit.

Chyiochan already touched on it, but the biggest way to make Flooz has been removed with this update. Place your Fortune Wheel at the foremost left side of your street, build a strip of bus stops, and then call them one by one and stop them right in front of the wheel. Every 2-3 busses would deplete the wheel and let you spin again, then repeat the process in another 5 minutes. The new update makes any passing visitor (bus, taxi, plane) walk right past the wheel 95% of the time. It sucks as I purchased almost 300 Flooz worth of Taxi stands just so I could play that wheel quicker. Flooz that I spent my real money on.

It's sad/dissapointing that Godzilab had a problem with that, it doesnt incentivize people to purchase Flooz from the store after all. On the Android side they actually tried to change it by removing Flooz from the mini games in a update, but the backlash was so severe they switched it back. All while spinning it as rebalancing and listening to our players. Thing is, my friends and I have actually purchased Flooz (not to mention tons of TapJoy offers) solely because the game wasnt pushy with its premium currency. Now that everything is 50% more expensive and they went out of their way to remove any quick Flooz earning methods, Im feeling that obnoxious paywall so many other freemium games have.

Its very disappointing to see Godzilab take this route and because of it they wont see another dime or completed offer from me. If Im even playing for much longer. It bothers me a bit that changes like this get swept under the rug because everyone is busy celebrating yay new seasonal buildings.

Is all the halloween and Christmas stuff removed from the new version, or can it still be bought?
