From the Mouths of Addicts: A Conversation with Qtuappele


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

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 is all about our Tapper of the Month for July qtuappele!

Back on July 10th we announced the TSTO Communities of Topix, Addicts & game voted qtuappele as the Tapper of the Month during our monthly Shout Out!  As part of the Tapper of the Month we interviewed qtuappele to get a better feel for why she created her Springfields the way she did and some advice she might have for other Tappers when it comes to design.

So without further ado let’s see what she had to say!

Level 43 and the O-Meters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 43 has arrived in Springfield!  And, as usual, with the release of Level 43 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.

What IS different about this update is it’s solely for Krustyland.  So while the requirements for a 5-Star town have changed, not one of the new buildings/decorations will impact it.  Instead the new rides, restaurants & decorations will impact your Krust-O-Meter.  Although the requirements for the Krust-O-Meter do not change.

Confused yet?  To recap…Conform-O-Meter requirements have changed with Level 43, Krust-O-Meter requirements have not changed with the update.  New buildings for Level 43 will impact the Krust-O-Meter only, no impact on the Conform-O-Meter.

So enough explaining, let’s show you.  At Level 43 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter: Continue reading

Tapped Out Walkthroughs: Level 42 & The Revenue Streams

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Level 43 has arrived on our Tapping devices…and as I sat down to do the Level 43 full dialogue walkthrough, I realized I never posted Level 42’s full dialogue walkthrough.  Of course we’ve had our Turbo Tappin’ (quick walkthrough) up since the update hit our games (check out the Level 42 Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough here), but I completely dropped the ball on posting the full version.

I know many of you love going back and reading old walkthroughs just in case there was anything you missed when playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 42.  So for those that may have missed it…I bring you all the fun and humor of Roger Myers Jr & Level 42…..

Level 43 Side & Premium Walkthroughs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 43 has arrived in Springfield and with it comes a much needed update to Krustyland!  It’s about time Springfield’s favorite (and only) theme park got some much needed attention!

While Level 43 does contain a main quesline (involving Princess Penelope & Krusty), there are also several other side quests/dialogues that will take place…depending on how you play out the update.  Some of these dialogues will pop up for you even if you’re not currently at Level 43, some will appear if you have certain premium characters & others will pop up for you if you purchase the premium buildings & rides.  So there’s plenty to do with this update to keep you tapping!

Let’s take a look at these little side/premium quests that will pop up throughout your Level 43 journey……WARNING Dialogue Spoilers Below

Turbo Tappin’ Level 43: The Princess and the Pea-Brain

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Level 43 has dropped in our little tapping devices and with it comes a much needed update to Krustyland!  It’s about time Springfield’s favorite (and only) theme park got some much needed love!

Speaking of love….this update contains a fun little love interest questline for our resident clown, Krusty!  Yes, that makes back-to-back updates that are focused on Krusty…what can I say some people just need to be the center of attention!

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 43!

As we mentioned in the Level 43 rundown post Krusty gets things rolling for the main questline of Level 43 and that kicks off the need to build Krusty’s Giant Wheel, which takes 24hrs.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!
