Springfield Showoff- Nice Hedges

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to.

So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

TSTO Anonymous… Bridging the Generation Gap?

Well hey there Addicts?  How’s life?  The Christmas event is over and I don’t know about all of you but I’m exhausted.  Seems like the perfect moment for another meeting of TSTO Anon.

TSTO Anon 2

Ah crud… someone broke the coffee pot.  Well, if y’all want to hit Starbucks in the Springfield Mall real quick or head on over to Tsarbucks in Little Ukraine, I completely understand.  I can wait…. Continue reading

Level 38 Glitch Report: Level Rollback

level38rollbackglitch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well I can’t say we didn’t expect it…although we were hoping it wouldn’t happen…Level 38, like all the updates before, has caused some Tappers games to go all Glitchy!  This is probably one of our least favorite parts about doing this blog.  We hate when you guys have issues with your games and they don’t cooperate so you can enjoy all the new goodies with the new update.

For Level 38, like Level 37, the most common Glitch occurring (and what we’re seeing most often in the comments) is the “Rollback Glitch”.  This is where you’re at Level 38, you’ve updated and maybe purchased some items.  Then you leave you game and when you return…Level 38 is gone!  Your new items…gone.  Your donuts (if you spent them)….gone.  And it says you’re now on Level 37 (or lower)!  What is a Tapper to do?!

WDTCF – Judge Roy Snyder

Woohoo!  Level 38!  You know what that means… more WDTCF action for you to enjoy.  To start off all the madness I’m sure I’ll bring to the table, I figured we’d go with Judge Roy Snyder.  He’s the kind of guy who would start off stern and Jewish only to rediscover himself as a lenient and African American judge.  What do you mean that makes no sense?  Have YOU found the Simpson’s recreation room lately?

Turbo Tappin’ Premium: The Blue Haired Lawyer

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back with another edition of Addicts Turbo Tappin’ the update, the quick walkthrough that’s so fast & so complete it’s copy and pasted by blogs everywhere!  Good thing this is Turbo Tappin’ the Premium Blue Haired Lawyer, maybe we should get him on the case huh?  (ok not all blogs…BUT there are some and you know who you are.   But don’t worry, to me copy and paste is the sincerest form of flattery, so I won’t send BHL after you…yet 🙂 )

Anywho let’s get on with what this post is about…the Blue Haired Lawyer!  Just what Springfield needs a Lawyer.  I guess the people of Springfield were getting fed up with Wiggum when he sent them all to jail back during Level 33!

The Blue Haired Lawyer is new to Level 38 BUT only level 1 is required to purchase him.  So if you’re a lower level Tapper still trying to hit Level 38 you can still add a little legal fun to your Springfield!

The Devil Wears Blue quest is 10 parts and has some great humor in it (including a really funny task in the last part), and it’s teased to ALL players in part 1.  Yes, EA is now giving players a “Freeview” of the premium quests (well at least for this one) and showing you what Part 1 of the questline looks like…in (my guess) an effort to get you to want to know what happens next and buy the Blue Haired Lawyer.  Like going to the movies and watching the previews….

Well I’ve rambled on long enough….let’s get to Turbo Tappin’ shall we?

Level 38 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Tuesday (1/14) required us to put our shades back on when we visit Springfield, but we were all still a bit disappointed that there was no new content in that update.  Well Lo and Behold Thursday (1/16) rolls around and BAM update city!  And what better way to welcome in a new Level than a Level 38 Conform-O-Meter post?  

With the release of Level 38 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so I want to make sure I get this information out to my favorite Addicts!  Now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!  

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.

The Level 38 update has introduced 2 new buildings, 2 new characters, 3 new decorations, 1 food cart & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield.  At Level 38 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter:

Level Indolence Obedience Consumerism/
    Gluttony
38     470      290       262/286
Tree-hugging
     /Vanity
Righteousness Socialism
20,575/32,120          173     1,626

As you can see, Level 38 has increased the requirements across the board.  The Indolence Rating requirement has increased+10 (1 more house), the Obedience Rating requirement has changed by +20, Consumerism Rating requirement has changed by +10, the Tree-Hugging Rating requirement has changed by +1,250, the Vanity Rating requirement has changed by +1,750, the Righteousness Rating requirement has changed by +8 and the Socialism Rating requirement has changed by +96.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘How will the new buildings/decorations help me max out?’  Well, here’s how:

Item Cost Category Points
Springfield County Court House $319,500 Obedience 10
Springfield Grocery Store $261,000 Consumerism 10
Lady Justice Statue $4,500 Obedience 10
Khlav Kalash Stand $760 Gluttony 10
Green Peace Boat $1,300 Tree-Hugging 200
Knight Boat 40 Donuts Vanity 400

Super excited they’ve added another building for Consumerism back into the game, especially after all of the ones they added over Christmas!  Now it should be a lot easier to uniquely max out your Conform-O-Meter….rather than having 25 Kwik-E-Marts in your town!

Let us know how your Conform-O-Meter rating is doing!  Are you maxed out?  If not, what area currently needs a boost?
