Ryan here, fulfilling another reader request from our friend Lonewo1f. Now answering reader requests is one of my favorite things to do, and something I try to follow through on whenever possible, especially when they prove to be as fortuitous as this one.
Much like what happened with Halloween, a good old-timer in the TSTO world such as myself can forget that not everyone has been around as long as I have…so I wanted to recap last years Holiday event for those of you who missed it, forgot about the details, or just feel like taking a walk down memory lane.
Ah, Remember the splash screen?
Now I’m referring to this as the holiday update but it was, in effect a Christmas update. Now the Simpsons themselves celebrate Christmas, and this years update has long since programmed been, but in between candle lightings I feel the need to express one last hope that this year we will see a true Holiday update with a little poli-religious observance…ie. I want my Temple! Alright that was it for the commentary.

The hospital level, level 24 in game play or a much higher level in XP, is a particularly complex level. The storyline involves lots of tasks, many of them quite short. And it also involves lots of characters, as you’ll see in the walkthrough here. Often, getting through this level is simply a matter of making sure that all the key characters are free to complete the joint tasks at the same time.
However, if you find yourself unable to make progress, between building the Hibbert Family Practice and Springfield General Hospital, it may be comforting to know that there’s a known glitch at this level that’s easily resolved. And the glitch has to do with the Orange House.
You’ll see in the walkthough that Dr. Hibbert has to use the Orange House to sell organs on the black market. If you find that particular task not coming up for you, it may be because your game is not recognizing the existence of your Orange House. If that’s the case, the simple solution is to build another one – and when you do, you should find that Dr. Hibbert’s quest restarts and that you’re able to continue with your game.
