Show Notes:

Friday Filler – Earning My Keep

Thanks Grog It’s Firday!! 

I admit, that if you had told me a year ago that I’d be making new theme music and a video intro for “Addicts Live,” I’d have replied, “Huh?  Really? What the heck is Addicts Live?

As I have never been to a 12-step program meeting, and know that any chance of me admitting that I had a “tapping problem” was slim, the concept of “Addicts Live” was foreign to me…and certainly didn’t warrant the effort required to write and produce theme music or a video bumper.

But, of course, it was indeed September of last year, that we tried the first “Live Video Broadcast” featuring some of the folks who keep the blog going here at TSTOAddicts.  And after a year, it just seemed time to “dress it up” a bit…and give the intro some “production value.”

That’s where my background in multimedia production came in handy.

County Fair 2017 Prize Breakdown: Cheddarbarrel Farm

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest!  Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowly bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Pride and Pageantry questline you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

Let’s take a look at the details of the fifth (and final) prize, Cheddarbarrel Farm .  Let’s see what it does and how you unlock it…

Where Did THAT Come From – L.T. Smash & Party Posse Stuff

Safi here, giving Wookiee a hand with these WDTCF. With WDTCF being a staple of TSTO Addicts, I’ll try to keep as true to the format as possible (by which I mean I’ll copy and paste one of Wookiee’s posts and just change the necessary info). Hope I make the Wookster proud. Enjoy:

 

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

 

To quote NSync and Backstreet Boys: ‘Here We Go’, ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ doing the WDTCF again with ‘No Strings Attached’. I’m going to give ‘All I Have to Give’ as ‘Everybody’ in this episode is ‘Larger than Life’.

It’s time for one of my favorite parts of being a reader here at this amazing site. That’s right… new stuff for us to talk about just WHERE it all comes from in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. The 2017 Homerpalooza Event started with a bang (literally with a free cannon) and then went full Rock, and then Pop. And when you think of Pop, you have to think of the King of Pop, none other than the late great Michael Jackson. It’s my privilege to get to writing about the origins for The Simpsons version of MJ on behalf of Wookiee. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. For this round of origins, we’ll be taking a look at L.T. Smash, Classified Records, the Party Posse, the concert lights, and the Stage Turret:

Turbo Tappin’ County Fair 2017 Premium Stuff: Mary Spuckler and Amber Dempsey

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest!  Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowly bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!

Of course, as with all events, new premium characters are in our stores!  Yes, characters just tempting us to drop those donuts on (not literally of course, donuts are too delicious to be used as weapons).  This event introduced two lovely young ladies to our stores…Mary Spuckler and Amber Dempsey.  And naturally both came with her own questline..

So let’s take a look at those questlines now, and just what you’ll need to do to help Mary make ends meat and Amber see just how far her lashes can get her…

Where Did That Come From? – Springfield Opry House

I’m going to start by making it clear, that while this episode is almost entirely about a love relationship between Bart and Mary Spuckler, I actually saved this last WDTCF post from this Mini-Event, because I love the building that the Springfield Opry House is based upon.

I think it is interesting the way we toss around the word, “Love.” We love our significant others, we love our kids, we love our country, we love our sports teams, and we love the concept of being in love. But we also love a whole bunch of inanimate objects that don’t really return our love, as much as we shower them with affection and obsession…to the point where the kind of deep, passionate, romantic love that is actually important (along with unconditional love for one another), is watered down, by our love for stuff. But, I digress…

Showoff Announcement: County Fair

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  Now that we’re nearing the end of the County Fair Update (ends Tuesday), we’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff and we want you to show us what you’ve done!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The next Showoff will feature your County Fair/Springfield Farm designs! So use the rest of the week, and the weekend, to polish up those fall festival areas and show us how creative you’ve been with the County Fair stuff!  Send in your designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post featuring your designs on Tuesday, September 26th. 

So finish up those designs and grab some screenshots of your town…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Monday September 25th can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

IF you Email your submissions please put Showoff  County Fair in the subject line, and make sure your photos are in JPEG or PNG format..please.  Also, be sure your submissions are in on time.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Where Did That Come From? County Fair – Part III – Country Fair Sign, Pavillion, and Largest Ribbon

OK.
I feel like I am getting the hang of these WDTCF posts…but readily admit that Wookie does a WAY better job, because he is clearly a WAY bigger Simpsons fan (the guy is like 6’10” or something).  Don’t get me wrong…I love the show, and love the game, and actually kind of enjoy reminding myself (and you guys) where stuff from our game comes from.

But, sometimes, like this episode, and these TSTO items, they really don’t play much of a part in the original story. Like…well…almost not at all after the first 2 minutes of the episode.

But…this episode is SUPER important, for a variety of SUPER reasons…

infinite Loop Bug (FIXED)

UPDATE: Appears this bug is now fixed!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I’ve left work and I’m driving to pick up the Tiny Addict (don’t worry i pulled over)  and I’m seeing a ton of comments from you guys about a new update and an infinite loop bug that’s happening with the dialogue.  It’s impacting the ability to play TSTO. (Pretty much everyone is impacted by it)

I’ll dig into this when i get home, but for now use this post to report issues or anything you’ve heard about it.  Just to keep everything together on one place.

I’ll add more when i can…
