Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Bunny ReCon Take 3

Wow. What can I say? This place is beyond words. No wonder it runs for so many days. I have walked and walked and walked and stood in lines and STILL don’t think I have even scratched the surface…

Turbo Tappin’ Premium Stuff: 2014 Yard Sale

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’ve almost reached the final week of the 2014 Yard Sale and soon all those Limited-Time items will disappear once again!  So don’t forget you have until August 4th to make your final purchases & then they’re gone!  Looking for a little guidance on what to get, or if you should get anything?  We’ve got a bunch of Should I Buy Posts for you here…

All Things Mayan
Yard Sale Skins
Yard Sale Buildings
Yard Sale Decorations
Cool Brown House & Cool Homer
Fr. Sean

The neat thing about many of these items is that they come with a questline…or at least some mini dialogue.  I know many of you have been asking about these questlines & just what’s involved.  And since there’s no time like the present, let’s break them all down for you now.

Level 43 Here and It’s A Paddlin’

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Dropping in to let you know a little update just hit our games…LEVEL 43!!

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 :)
