More details as we go through them but for now know that Homer kicks it off and you have to send him to KRUSTYLAND!!!

Note: Some players are reporting Krusty starts it off for them.  It will vary game to game.  Both Krusty and Homer start questlines for the level.  In both of my games Homer started it, but then Krusty picked it back up after.

The Yard Sale and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Yard Sale time in Springfield!  What was old is once new again!  So just how do all those new/old items impact the Conform-O-Meter?  As we’re approaching the halfway mark of the event, I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.

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.

While the Yard Sale brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements (Level 42 did though!), it did bring a bunch of old items back into Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how these TSTO Classic items impact the conform-o-meter:

Item Cost Category Points
Ultra House 2 90 Donuts Indolence 10
Cool Brown House 120 Donuts Indolence 10
Mayan Calendar 300 Donuts (Combo) Vanity 100
Practice Snake 75 Donuts Vanity 100
Mr. Sparkle Billboard 30 Donuts Consumerism 10
Ice God 30 Donuts Vanity 10
*Helter Shelter does not impact the conform-o-meter

So there you have it my friends!  The complete rundown of how all of the Yard Sale Goodies impact the Conform-O-Meter.  Lots of new-old decorations/buildings to improve your ratings all around!

How’s your Conform-O-Meter doing?  Are you maxed out?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Addicts Want to Know: To Nuke or Not To Nuke….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it would seem as if we’re in a bit of a summer lull in Springfield.  With the Yard Sale not bringing any new content, beyond Mayan Marge, for many Tappers…we’re all starting to feel the lull in game play.  In my opinion these lulls have ALWAYS been the perfect time to work on some redesigns of Springfield.

During our Sunday Night Open Thread this past week, several of you commented that you’ve taken advantage of the Nuclear Option and are taking advantage of the lull & completely redesigning your Springfield.  While others expressed concern  for wiping out their whole town.  So here’s what I want to know….

 What are your thoughts on the nuclear option?  Have you pushed the trigger yet?  How do you feel about the lull in the game right now?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Psst…if you’re looking for a little inspiration in the design department you can check out our Design page here OR the AMAZING work of your fellow Tappers over on our Flickr Page :)

Why Aren’t We Posting About The “Thing” On Facebook, While Posting About It

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well 4th of July is officially over in Springfield….well except for one former president you can still purchase for donuts…and you know what that means?  Time to start speculating about the next “big thing”!

The rumor mills have been swarming since yesterday about what “might” happen today.  Yet, we’ve remained silent.  And MANY of you are asking WHY?!  There’s a post on Fox’s Official Facebook Page of The Simpsons  that has everyone chomping at the bit…and many you asking why we’re not posting about it.

I’ll break it down for you below the fold….. Continue reading

Tapped Out Premium Walkthrough: Rex Redux

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the 4th of July is now over in Springfield, and I hope you guys managed to get everything you wanted from the update!  And now that it’s over it’s time to look at our 3rd, and final, full dialogue walkthrough for the event.  The Redux of Rex Banner!

Rex Banner was the freemium 4th of July Character during the 2013 Event & returned as a premium character (for 90 donuts) during 2014.  The 2014 questline for Rex (and All-American Apu, if you have him) is basically a repeat of the 2013 quesline, with a few dialogue updates.

Rex’s questline started automatically once 4th of July hit, if you had Rex already or it started after you purchased him and the Nighthawk Diner.  We’ve already brought you the Turbo Tappin’ version of this walkthrough, so now it’s time to catch up on what you missed (if you were tapping quickly) or missed out on (if you didn’t make the purchase) with the full dialogue version!

Now, enough stammering from me….let’s find those illegal fireworks with everyone’s favorite hard-nosed cop!

Tapped Out Premium Walkthroughs: George “he can too tell a lie” Washington

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are on the final full day of the 4th of July Event & I think many of you are ready for it to be over!  As the event comes to a close we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at the dialogue  you may have missed from the event while tapping.

So here we are, back with another 4th of July Event Walkthrough!  This time we’re going to look at the Premium Quest that unlocks when you purchase George Washington & his Cherry tree.  We’ve already brought you the Turbo Tappin’ version of this walkthrough and now it’s time for the full dialogue walkthrough!  This is great for those Tappers that might have missed something in playing, or players who simply didn’t make the donut plunge on Ol’ Georgie.

So enough from me, let’s get on with the show….

Tapped Out Walkthrough: 4th of July 2014 & Failure to Launch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well as the 4th of July Event comes to a close we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at the dialogue  you may have missed from the event while tapping.

4th of July in the USA is all about celebrating America, and what better way to celebrate than with fireworks?!  Except what happens when they fail to launch?  What kind of 4th of July is that?!  Just like in the Season Finale of The Simpsons this year, Homer works to get Fireworks for Springfield on the 4th!  Except as always…someone foils the plan!

So now enough delay…let’s get to walking shall we?
