Decorating with Debris

It wasn’t until a very late stage in the game that I realized you could actually pick-up and move debris around. You can’t store it or sell it, but you can move it around as you see fit. While you do get a small reward for cleaning-up the debris, once it’s gone, it’s gone. In an odd sense these are almost like exclusive decorations that you only get a set number of. The only catch is that you can’t remove them from the map, so if you’re not decorating with them, you’ll have to keep them off to the side somewhere.

Above is a great example of how using debris can actually accentuate certain buildings, like the Haunted Condo for instance. In my opinion the debris in Krustyland has more potential for decorating than the debris in Springfield, unless you want to create a nuclear waste dump. If you have any creative examples of using debris to decorate, feel free to them on our Flickr page.

    I saw debris used for bumper cars and started saving roller coaster cars.

    I’ve used letters and other debris as grassy area art.

    I have my power plant surrounded by toxic puddles and drums in my Springfield.

    I used my burning bushes and white propane tanks near my farm.

    I also have some propane tanks at my gun store.

      That’s awesome. I like how you made a bumper car ride with the debris. I also had no idea that those two pieces were suppose to form a statue. It makes sense now seeing them together. Nice job on these!

        Thanks.I have cleaned some of my Springfield trash, but worry if I clean away too much of it, I’ll regret it later.I hide some of the trash in spots behind buildings where they can’t be seen by visitors.

    Yeah, I tried leaving a few drums and the like around the Power Plant, but would forget and send Lisa and Homer off to clean up debris without realising where it was. D’oh, indeed.

    I wish we had enough broken letter to actually spell Krusty or Krustyland

      I also had hoped for this.I put a KL next to each other for Krusty Land.

      Being able to spell out k-r-u-s-t-y-l-a-n-d with debris would also make it possible to spell out some very offensive words which is why they omitted the letters A, D, N, S, and U.

      The bumper cars are a must-keep debris item. It’s like unlocking a secret bonus ride in your park when you place them creatively.

      The propane tanks have many uses, such as being part of an obstacle course near the police station or beer kegs at Duff brewery.

      Even the broken window debris could find a place strewn around the Muntz house or Krabappel apartment.

        I didn’t think about the curse words being a reason for leaving out letters.

        I have the broken windows and bricks around the farm and in the nearby woods.

    Does anyone know if the Krustyland debris yields occasional donuts like the Springfield debris?

    I wish we could specify which debris the characters clean up. I’d love to keep my krustyland letters, but want to get ride of the other stuff.

      I don’t think any of the debris in Krustyland nets anything other than a few tickets and XP. As for which debris is cleaned up, you could always try moving the debris you want cleaned up close to Lisa or Homer, and hope they just clean-up whatever is closest to them.
