Hey there Hoppereenos!

One of those being the “Storage” Capacity and Character Tasks that take place within the New Buildings. Tasks to help you gain Material Items needed to unlock New Land as well as other Buildings.

Should I Spend Donuts On Gil’s Ice Cream Truck Deal? (Ice Cream Man Homer)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

BEFORE I get into the details of the Gil deal…let me remind you.  If you’re STILL missing donuts.  Contact EA.  If the first rep doesn’t refund your donuts, try again and get someone else.  Be persistent and stay on top of them for it.  LOADS of readers have had their donuts refunded to them by contacting EA.  If they didn’t succeed the first time they tried again.  I know it sucks having your donuts missing, but they can be restored/refunded.  You just have to contact EA.  Please don’t complain in the comments about missing donuts if you haven’t even tried to get them back from EA.  You have to be a little proactive and persistent with this…stay on top of them until your donuts are refunded.  Here’s the link to contact EA:

And now onto the specs of Gil Deal…..

Gil arrived back in Springfield yesterday afternoon, and brought us all a little summer treat!  Cause nothing says summer like ice cream and the ice cream man, right?

So the Gil Deal this time around consists of the Ice Cream Truck and Ice Cream Man Homer costume.  For 120 donuts both could be yours!

And I know many of your are wondering if this deal is worth your donuts…especially with that clock ticking down.  But before you hit that confirm spend button let’s break down all the pros and cons of adding this sweet treat combo to your Springfield…. Continue reading

Level 55 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 55 arrived in Springfield a couple of weeks ago and with it arrived Unky Herb and Declan Desmond, as well as some new buildings & decorations to help improve our Conform-O-Meters!

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.

Of course with the release of Level 55 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are.  So now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!

Springfield Heights 101: Increasing Storage (Coffee, Smart Devices, Yoga Mats, Pills, Trophies)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Springfield Heights hit our games last week, and what an interesting set of days it has been for many of us!  Some of you are in your games all the time and breezing through, while others are only able to get in so often and it’s taking a bit more time.  Then there are those of you, like me, who spend a couple hours a day in their games (usually at night when watching tv) earning that currency…and progressing at a decent pace.  And still there are some of you who are just stuck, and don’t know what the heck to do.

So let’s talk about those of you who are stuck.  The most common question I’ve seen in the comments over the last few days is…”It says I need more storage for _____ how do I get more storage?!” Now we’ve answered this question a number of times in various posts, but since we’re still seeing it popup many times daily I think a direct post just about storage is in order.

So let’s take a look at just what happens when you need more storage…and how to solve the problem…

Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Prize Tap Ball Players

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tap Ball is officially over in Springfield, but we’ve got a ton of new sporty Springfield residents in our towns! As prizes throughout the three acts of Tap Ball we’ve unlocked several players for free including Baseball Jasper, Softball Mr. Burns, Boxer Tatum, Tennis Marge, Kung Fu Comic Book Guy & Ballet Ralph!

So if you missed any of the dialogue during the event, or you’re just curious what one of the characters had to say that you didn’t unlock…we’ve got it all here for you!

So let’s get started with the complete dialogue walkthroughs for all of the prize Tap Ball Players that hit our game during the event…we’ll get things rolling with Baseball Jasper…

The Great Donut Caper: Missing Donuts and Other Issues with Springfield Heights

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in with another bug/glitch report for TSTO…this time related to the Springfield Heights update.  Because one centralized placed where you guys can report your issues and see that you’re not alone in them…is better than issues scattered all over various posts…and feeling like you’re the only one with the problem.  :)

Before we get into it just a note, yesterday I went over some issues that were happening since Tap Ball was removed, some of these are still going on.  So if you don’t see your issue covered in this post, try checking out yesterdays crash report post to see if it’s covered there.  (You can view yesterday’s post here)

So now, let’s tackle some of the common issues we’re seeing popup since Springfield Heights hit our towns including (but not limited to): missing donuts, land errors, missing currency and more!  So let’s dive in shall we?
