Level 51/Kids Are All Fight and the Conform-O-Meter

Now I know we’re in the middle of the Terwilliger Event, but I figured now was as good a time as any to post the Level 51 Conform-o-Meter Requirements (that I wrote up before Terwilligers hit).  I’ve also added details about the Kids Are All Fight Episode Tie-in items that hit our games earlier this week.  Check out the bottom of the post for details on those.  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 51 arrived in Springfield a few weeks ago and with it arrives a couple of previously deceased characters (back from the dead) 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 51 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!
