Should I Spend Donuts on Planet Hype?

Wondering if you should add Planet Hype to your Squidport?   Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding Planet Hype to your boardwalk

TSTO Planet Hype
Building Name: Planet Hype
Donut Price: 150 Donuts
Dimensions: 5×10
Payout: $300 & 30xp every 12hours
Return on Investment: $2.00/.200XP /Donut Spent
Pros:
-Unlocks an additional Task for Wolfcastle
-1 of only 2 restaurants on the boardwalk.
-Neat animation, when Wolfcastle is there.
Cons:
-A bit expensive for the payout.
-Only Wolfcastle has a task there
-It’s quite large for the boardwalk, and when space is limited it can be tough to fit in.
Final: If you’re a big Wolfcastle fan this is a great addition to the game, even if you’re not a big Wolfcastle fan. It is a bit pricey though, so if you’re looking for a better bang for your donuts you may want to wait on Planet Hype and go with another building.

Wookieecorp brings you… Milhouse

Welcome back to the next edition of How-Tos from your hairy friends at Wookieecorp.  Today’s installment is Milhouse.  For Simpsons lovers, he is usually one of the least favorite characters from the show but even those that love to hate him respect his turn as Fallout Boy.  Like must sidekicks, I imagine that he wishes to someday take over the boots of his favorite caped crusader… The one and only Radioactive Man.  I chose this image mainly because I wanted to play around with color and the red mailboxes seemed perfect for this.

Here is the image I chose:

Should I Spend Donuts on the Ferris Wheel?

Wondering if you should add the Ferris Wheel to your Squidport?   Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding the Ferris Wheel to your boardwalk.

TSTO Squidport Ferriswheel
Building Name: Ferris Wheel
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
Dimensions: 5×10
Payout: $260 & 26xp every 10hours
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Return on Investment: $2.17/.217XP/Donut Spent
Pros:
-Relatively small so fits nicely on your boardwalk
-Unlocks a rate 10 hour task for Mr. Burns (Smither’s is required as well)
-Good return for the investment.
Cons:
-Only Mr. Burns has a task for the Ferris Wheel
-Space is limited on Squidport with how long it takes for tiles to be produced, you may want to wait and save the space for the required items.
Final: Personally I think the Ferris Wheel is a great addition to Squidport. What boardwalk is complete without some rides? If you can swing it I say go for it and get the Ferris Wheel. It has a decent pay out and includes a task for a regular character.

Should I Spend Donuts on Mount Krustmore?

Wondering if you should add Mount Krustmore to your Krustyland?   Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding the ride to your Krustyland…

TSTO Mount Krustmore
Ride/Building Name: Mount Krustmore
Donut Price: 150 Donuts
Dimensions: 12×13
Payout: 120 tickets/40xp every 24hours
Return on Investment: 1.25tickets/.266XP /Donut Spent
Pros:
-A Krustyland Attraction that earns tickets, and can be used fairly early in the Krustyland quest to earn tickets before other rides are built.
-6 second build, so no long wait before you can start earning tickets
Cons:
-It’s a little pricey.
Final: At 150 donuts this is a fairly decent rate for the tickets it’ll produce. Plus, since Krustyland is still in its early stages, there aren’t that many attractions. This makes a great addition if you can swing the donut price. Not to mention it’s the only rollercoaster in the park until the very last quest task (Build the Tooth Chipper).

How to Calculate Your Bonus Multiplier the Easy Way

Hey Tappers!

One of the best ways to earn cash quickly in TSTO is by buying premium items and keeping your Conform-O-Meter (this starts on the bottom of your screen) high, in doing both of these you’ll earn valuable bonus points which helps the maximize your cash and XP for every rent you collect or task a character completes.  The conformity bonus is a maximum of 5%, so it’s easy to see, but if you have premium decorations in your town, it can be quite difficult to figure out what the bonus impact is–unless of course you love of numbers and calculation!  So you may be wondering,  ‘is there an easy way to work out what my current bonus multiplier is with out all the crazy math?’

If you’re not a math wiz, you’re in luck because there is a way to simply calculate your bonus rate.  The easiest way to do this is to pay attention when you collect your rent at the Gulp ‘n’ Blow. Since the Gulp ‘n’ Blow is the one building in Springfield that earns exactly $100, with out the bonus of course, anything you earn above that is your bonus multiplier.  Example:  You collect $157 at your Gulp ‘n’ Blow, that’s $57 more than the $100 it normally would earn so your bonus multiplier is 57%. 

Now that you know how to easily calculate your bonus multiplier, what is your bonus percentage? 

Happy Tapping!
