Well it’s snowing in Springfield and that means the Christmas Update has (finally) arrived! With all of the new items (and there are a TON of new items) added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.
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 Christmas event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, level 37 did though, 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:
