Krustyland in 3D!!!

What’s crackalackin Addicts?

Well, it’s 3D Thursday and I thought today we could have some fun in Krustyland (KL) for a change.  I don’t know about you but my poor theme park has been pretty neglected for quite a while.  Sure I threw my new rides from the various holiday events in there but haven’t done much else.

Well, I’m ashamed of myself.  I’m a Disneyland Annual Passholder and go all the time and still have a so-so KL.  You’d never guess how much I love amusement parks by looking at my designs.  (Well, the pathway to the castle with the Krusty Statue in front of it might give you a guess but that’s not the point.)  Thankfully, other Addicts aren’t as neglectful of KL as me. Over at TOuk, I saw this amazing 3D Design from Steven Itman and liked it a bunch.  With his permission, I thought we’d do a little 3D tutorial.  Sound good? If yes, click more….

Ok so now that all of that “lovey-dovey” stuff is out of the way I want to take a minute to discuss a hot button issue with this event.  Something that seems to have a lot of you either really giddy or really ticked.  And that something is….Graffiti!

Ah yes vandalizing your neighbors…which for the longest time has been something many of us have tried to avoid (and some of us only do) because of the negative dip in Righteousness Rating points.  BUT with the Friendship event vandalizing your neighbors seems to be beneficial to BOTH of you when it comes to earning those precious FPs!  So let’s take a closer look at some of the pros, cons & solutions of spraying that graffiti…

Friendship Level 1: Unlocking the Olmec Head

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

Are you all enjoying the little social game EA given us with the Valentine’s Day Removal update?  Are you remembering to take your time and enjoy your neighbor’s town?  There is no rush to complete the prizes ASAP.  There’s no clock on this event, so take your time.  Relax and enjoy tapping!  Oh and the free stuff…

Speaking of free stuff…let’s talk about the first of the Friendship prizes, the Olmec Head.  The Olmec Head is unlocked once you’ve reached your first 1,000 FP…and many of you should be unlocking it at some point today (if you haven’t already).  So what happens when you unlock it?  What does it do?  Let’s take a closer look…
