Comments like this one from Aimee have been coming in all week from players who built all the Boardwalk with donuts before getting very far with the Squidport quest:
I’m stuck on part 6, I’ve maxed out my boardwalk pieces and have the Ferris wheel and Planet Hype but no matter how many times I store everything away (Houseboat, Boardwalk, Itchy and Scratchy Store and everything else) and then put it back out it still keeps asking me to build boardwalk pieces. What can I do?
This is a tricky one, and obviously it’s something that EA recognized may have been a problem, as the update before last changed the Ferris Wheel and Planet Hype unlock to Squidport part 5, rather than part 6. But while, for some people in this situation, the game just jumps ahead and skips the Boardwalk decorations and the Malaria Zone, for others, progress remains firmly stuck. And while there is a solution, it doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
For some people, scaling back the Boardwalk to just six pieces, storing away everything, then replacing only the Houseboat and the Itchy and Scratchy Store seems to have worked, being careful not to expand beyond the 8 pieces you need at that stage. For others, storing everything and then moving the Entrance down the coast a bit is necessary for doing any of this. But it doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
So, if you’ve managed to get over this particular glitch, please let us know how you fixed it (I know that a few of you have). And for everyone else, don’t be in to much of a hurry to speed up your Boardwalk section production and complete your Boardwalk.
