    I have Mr Smithers and Mr Burns, however, under the Mr Smithers tasks is the 1 hour task – excercise for Mr Burns, which is locked. How is it this task is locked when I have Mr Burns?

    • Bill Winsky
      January 23, 2013

      A further update to the issue, the task is available if Mr Burns is not busy, but if he is doing a 24 hour shift at the plant, then the task for Mr Smithers to excercise for Mr Burns is locked.

      • Tine
        January 31, 2013

        This is a 2-person-task, meaning both people involved need to be available when starting the task, it will occupy both people, and it will reward you with double the standard income. When you start the task, Burns and Smithers will walk toward each other, and climb both on the same tandem.

          I’m having the same issue, Homer said he can’t afford flowers and to work at the nu-cular reactor and for that to build a control building. The building is highlighted in yellow but there is a lock symbol over it and I cannot build it 🙁

      The voice actor for Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz is dead, they haven’t been in an episode for ten years. The show retired his characters in respect instead of recasting them. For the same reason they probably won’t appear in this game.

      • Eric Brady

        So? Milhouse & that Supervillain Guy don’t have voices. So just don’t give them voices. By the way, will Holiday Characters be returning Next Year?
