TSTO has had a fair share of bugs and glitches. Normally, no one wants to see a glitch in a game. TSTO gamers have had to endure a harp glitch and numerous other little bugs that have detracted from game-play. Sometimes, however, a glitch can be a good thing. Players used to be able to “give” their neighbors multiple boardwalk tiles for Squidport. It was a glorious time!
With the recent update I’ve notice a new (to me) glitch. When I go to my inventory, I’m told what the item is and how many pieces I have. Normally, I cannot place more items than I have in my inventory. If I wanted more of something, I had to go “buy” it after getting out of my inventory and pressing the little bench/tree circle in the bottom right corner.
Now, however, it is possible for me to buy things from my inventory. The problem with this is that a player may not realize in-game cash is being spent on an item that is supposedly in the inventory. Check out these screen shots. The first one shows how many trees I have in my inventory: one.
The second screen shot shows that I am able to place more than one tree. Notice the white text showing that money has been spent! I’m not sure I like this “convenience” of being able to buy items from my inventory box!
Another weird twist, as you can see from this third screen shot, is that I cannot place the purchased tree into my inventory. I can sell it (which I did), but I can’t place it in the inventory—even though, it was from the inventory box that I purchased the thing. Isn’t that weird? It makes me think this is a glitch and not an attempt to “trick” gamers into spending in-game cash. What do you think? Is this happening to you? Is this a “trick” or a “treat” in your view?
