Should I Spend Donuts on the DMV Limo?

Level 35 is here and with it comes the DMV Limo, a new premium decoration for your Springfield.  The DMV limo marks the 3rd Limo we’ve received in TSTO, and if you’re asking yourself “should I spend donuts on this?” don’t worry we’ve got you covered!  So before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the DMV Limo and if it’s worth your donuts:

dmv limo
Decoration: DMV Limo
Donut Price:
50 Donuts
Bonus % Per Donut Spent:
Conform-O-Meter Points:
Vanity +500
Where Can I Place It?:
On the main (grass or pavement) sections of Springfield and on the boardwalk. 

Final Thought: If you’re just looking to purchase a car for TSTO save your donuts and go with Chalmers (non premium) _ONDA.  However, if you’re a premium player this isn’t a bad purchase for you, especially if you missed the Limo from the Whiskey Business Promo last Spring.  50 donuts isn’t a bad deal, and you do get 500 vanity points.  However, vanity is one of the easiest areas to get points in, so don’t just buy it for the vanity points.
When it comes to bonus % per donut spent, the DMV Limo isn’t a bad deal.  At 0.045% it’s one of the higher percentages per donut spent, but if you’re looking for a better deal in a premium vehicle the Burns limo is 40donuts and offers the same bonus percentage (a rate of 0.050%/donut spent).

What do you think?  Will you be paying 50 donuts for the DMV Limo?

Monday Poll: Are Patty & Selma What You Expected?

For as long as I’ve been playing Tapped Out I’ve been seeing/hearing other tappers wanting EA to release Patty & Selma in the game.  So now that they’re finally here, after all this time, I want to ask my fellow tappers…was it worth the wait?  Were Patty & Selma what you expected?  Or do you think EA could have done a little more with the update?  Let us know in the poll below…and if you have any follow up comments feel free to leave them in the comment section below!


To Sell or Not To Sell…..

TSTO Selling Buildings
With the release of Level 35 and it’s FOUR new buildings, and no land expansions, some long time tappers are faced with a problem… too many buildings/decorations and not enough space for them all! Well the neat thing about TSTO is that you do have the option to sell certain items that you’ve purchased in the game. However, before you hit the sell button there are a few things you should know….

Selling a Building? Be sure to follow the Golden Rules:

1. Never sell limited time buildings

2. Never sell any building that costs donuts to replace

3. Think carefully before you sell

There is only one way to get back a building that you’ve sold, and that’s to buy it again. And just like if you were to go to a Pawn Shop, it will always cost you much more to buy it again then what you sold it for.

REMEMBER that if you sell a limited time building, like the Swanky Fish, you won’t be able to replace it because it’s no longer available. And if you sell a building like Barney’s Bowlarama, 1) you’ll lose Barney and 2) it’ll cost you 250 donuts to replace (even if you purchased it with Santa coins from the Christmas event).

So be careful when you’re moving your buildings around because selling is a serious business. Ask yourself whether you really need the money now or whether you can wait a day or two to build up the amount you need. And if you find yourself tapping the dollar sign accidentally, don’t worry! A warning (automatically) comes up asking you to confirm your selling decision. If you see a confirm sell box, slow your tapping finger wayyy down and be sure you really want to sell before you tap “sell”.
