I was hoping for a more vocal crowd for this problem, but THE NOTIFICATIONS will NOT turn off not matter what currently. It started probably on September 11th. For some reason, it notifiys me whenever ANY job is done. I was woken up 5 times last night by homer yelling stuff notifying me that someone finished their job.
I tried to UNLOG from Origin hoping that the game would not notify me of things when i am not logged in, but it still kept notifying me at random times and even during work. If this does not get fixed fast, I will uninstall and try to find a way to get a refund for my donuts i bought. this game started as pretty addicting and has become the most annoying thing ever.
I have the same problem.. for now I'm just switching the entire sound off (even though this also turns off my phone ring too) or time my tasks to finish only in the morning instead of in the middle of the night.
