Level 44 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 44 arrived in Springfield!  And, as usual, with the release of Level 44 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed.  Let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are, so  you can have all the information you’ll need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

At Level 44 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter: Continue reading

Friendship Level 11: Unlocking Mr. Teeny

Well I got friends in high places, earned a bunch of FPs and rare prizes, yes I’ve got friends… in TSTO places…

Oh hey there… how you doing today?   Winding down the Clone Wars and Level 44?  Racking up those FP’s by visiting your neighbors?  Just a reminder, remember to help out your fellow neighbors and clear those handshakes!  Are you in need of more Tapping Friends?  Remember you can always find friends on our Add Friends Page (and here for ones who pledge not to vandalize you)…the best (and only way) to submit your Add Me requests on TSTO Addicts!

So with the Level 44 update, EA also gave us the 11th Social Currency Event Prize… Mr. Teeny!  A new character for your Springfield!  Unlike some NPCs, Mr. Teeny actually has a task to earn you money!  Let’s break down the info on this funky monkey… and final for now (at least until EA decides to add more)… Friendship Prize.  Just want to remind you all with this update it’s important to remember to SLOW DOWN.  There’s no rush to get the FP’s, so take your time and enjoy it!  :)

Anywho… Mr. Teeny is unlocked once you’ve unlocked the Marge Tetherball AND earned an additional 5,000 FP…so many of you should be unlocking it sometime in the next few days (depending on how many friends you have) or you should have it already.  So what happens when you unlock this character? Does he do anything? What about a questline?  Well let’s answer all of your questions by taking a closer look at Mr. Teeny…

Happy Labor Day from the Addicts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here in the US today marks the unofficial end of Summer….Labor Day.  I think it’s funny how here in America we don’t bother using calendars to mark the start and end of our summers…we just know Memorial Day is the unofficial start and Labor Day is the unofficial end.  Sometimes I think we just like the excuse for a good Barbecue!

Of course Labor Day isn’t really about the end of summer…and it isn’t only celebrated in the US (our friends up in Canada are celebrating it today as well…). Labor Day (or Labour Day) is a celebration of the workers movement.  It’s meant to honor those who contribute to the strength and prosperity of their country.   (you can read more about it here)

Anywho… most Americans will spend today soaking up what’s left of their summer and spend time with their families and friends down the shore (can you tell I’m from Jersey?!) at parades, picnics and watching fireworks!  And since Bunny, Wookiee and I are all located in the US… you can throw us into that bunch!  Don’t worry… we’ll still be popping in and out of the comments throughout the day to help you with all of your Clash of Clones questions.  Just keep in mind it might take us a little while to moderate through all the comments, so we thank you in advance for your patience!

We hope you all have a GREAT day!  Do YOU have any plans for today?  Did you enjoy your summer?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Special Saturday Night Caption This!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We thought we’d do something a little fun tonight, it is Saturday night after all, and do a special weekend edition of Caption This!  And unlike our usual weekly Caption This! post, this time we thought we’d share a few of the funny images you guys have been sending in!  So caption 1, caption 2, caption them all…or just giggle along with us!

From the Mouth of Addicts: Mail, Make-up, Murals and More

mouthsofaddictsmailcall

The war may be on but what else is going on in the world of The Simpsons besides nerds, barbarians, shield and shenanigans?  Well… you”re about to find out because other players/readers wanted to share some cool stuff

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a few different tappers.  Everyday we receive TONS of emails from you guys with fun shots of your town, random thoughts about the Simpsons & of course…we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t our favorite… admiration for TSTO Addicts!  So we thought this week we’d share.  In addition, we also get quite a few comments with neat-o stuff.  I personally hate when I think something might get buried in comments and not seen so to stop that, we included them here.

Our first item was an e-mail sent to us from a reader who asked to stay anonymous.

(I say this anonymously, being that I work at mac I’m not allowed to spill the juices, but ya didn’t hear it from me! Just wanted my TRUE Simpson addicts to get first dibs! Keep up the awesome blog!!)

Simpsons MAC announcement

 

The MAC line launched already so if this seems like your thing… check it out!  You can also see more at the MAC website.

Next up, reader Bloodangel736 popped by in the comments to share this:

I was looking through local news today and found this though!

http://www.kptv.com/story/26372405/springfield-pays-homage-to-the-simpsons-with-new-mural?autostart=true

I don’t live there, but I figured you would appreciate some Simpson news!

I wish I lived closer to Portland to see all this awesomeness.  If I’m ever up that way, I’ll be sure to check this out in person.

Another great comment from the past week was from reader Inés Álvarez. She wanted to make sure everyone saw this hilarious video of Homer taking the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is serious business and I applaude anyone who took the challenge and/or donated money.  MyTube is full of celebrities and others doing this.  My beautiful Ewok did the challenge and donated this past weekend even if California is in a drought.  At least she watered the front lawn in the process.

Speaking of the little fuzzball, last on the list is a clip she made sure I saw the other day and I just wanted to share it.  We talked about Judd Apatow writing a Simpsons script a while back but as Season 26 approaches, it’s coming soon.  Mr. Apatow starts talking about the episode around the 1:48 mark.

That wraps up this edition of From the Mouths of Addicts.  What did YOU think of it all?   Sound off in the comments below.  You know we LOVE hearing from you! :)

And keep sending us those emails!  You never know when you might end up on the next From the Mouths of Addicts!

Once a week (at least) we plan on showcasing your words (art or video) for the world, and TSTO Community, to read!  Here’s your chance to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out.  Simply send in your posts to our Addicts email account: TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com (many of you already do) and we’ll do the rest!  We’ll pick (at least) one post to be showcased here on Addicts every week.  So send us your posts…we can’t wait to see what you have to say!
