Thanksgiving and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while (we’re guessing it’ll be gone by December 1st), so make sure you get those Limited-Time decorations and buildings while they’re still around!  For a little extra incentive let’s take a look at how the new additions to Tapped Out will impact your Conform-O-Meter.
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.
While the Thanksgiving event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

Item Cost Category Points New/Returning
Caesar’s Pow-Wow Indian Casino 150 Donuts Consumerism 10 New
Caesar’s Pow-Wow Sign 40 Donuts Vanity 400 New
Mayflower* 100 Donuts Vanity  1,000 New
Rusty Balloon $5,400 Vanity 440  New
Poochie Balloon $20,000 Vanity 870  New
Stampy Balloon 40 Donuts Vanity 400 New
Grumple Balloon 25 Donuts Vanity 250 New
Scratchy Balloon $1,000 Vanity 180 Returning
Blinky Balloon $16,500 Vanity 790 Returning
Santa’s Little Helper Balloon $30,000 Vanity 1,070 Returning
Snowball 2 Balloon 15 Donuts Vanity 200 Returning
Itchy Balloon 30 Donuts Vanity 400 Returning

*Note: We believe the Mayflower is not a limited-time item.  
Because it is a very decoration heavy event, just about every item impacts your vanity rating.  However, the Indian Casino will impact your Consumerism Rating (one of the hardest to max out in the game).  It’s always nice to have a NEW building to impact Consumerism!

  1. I think your table is messed up in the cost column. Free with ray gun? 8000 goo?

  2. Is there a post on what to tap in your friends neighbourhoods? Whats the logic behind squidport, crop, channel 6 etc?

  3. When I spray paint my neighbor-eenos buildings, does it hurt me and my ratings? I gotta know!

    • It can effect your righteousness rating. It helps if you back out of the town and return to clean it up again. To combat this…I just put up a bunch of training walls. They have kept it at a 5 constantly. Even if I miss Sideshow Bob. Lol 🙂
