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”.
This weeks fun edition focuses on making words outta decorations. 2D Lettering if you will. Now what on earth sparked this one? (Other than my love for the art itself?) Well as I was hopping through tapping away, I stumbled upon a very simplistic but very cool design idea in one of my neighbors towns. Yes, I did geek out a lil bit too. 😉 Here is the design…
pinfobot613 …my newer neighbor created something quite cool out of a simple Phone Booth and Angel Hedges. I think the poor Doctor may be just a lil surrounded by the Weeping Angels. Whatever you do, DON’T BLINK!! (Send them after Flander’s kid instead. Lol.)
So I put it out there that I wanted to see MORE! And MORE you did give me. Here are the really awesome things you all sent in. I am VERY impressed!!
Felicia Kata-Munno sent this one in via our FB page. With the new social event, I am seeing this A LOT!!
elfgirl2012 made her version of a “bad word” with the rose bushes.
Bandango found a fun way to do something with their extra crap lying around town. Lol
Em wanted to shout out to her home away from home (also the place us Addicts Team met up before creating this awesome blog and community). Not to mention a lil heart full of love for her adorable Drew D.
hungryhomer had a GREAT back story to go with their design. You can read more about it in the comments here. It is amazing to me what sparks creativity in others. Love it!
joooodah is trying to hint something to me I think. Lol. No but really, do YOU remember the episode this tag line came from?
Ohsebhlen showed us more of their talents by creating several areas of 2D lettering around their town. From the very simplistic to more extravagant.
saramary3 showed us that we can’t forget to have a lil fun in Krustyland too. Some fun ideas using the scattered lettering and decorations there to make the place stand out a lil more.
cmarchia is trying to give Gil a permanent place to make some money. Those Gil Deals just don’t come around often enough.
carly …well…she wanted everyone to know just who’s town they were in. Great decorations all around too.
CGuy always wants to make tapping easy and quick for those wanting to hop in and out of his town. So he made a great section in his landing screen.
Freaknstein8 seems to have caught the 2D bug and dare I say…a lil Addicted?? YOU’RE WELCOME! He has been playing around and changing his lettering, at times, on a daily basis. Makes for great humor when you hop in n out of his town. Hey Freak, I mustache you a question. Lol
(Why do I think of Finding Nemo when I look at this? Lol)
MrFitch has made a simple and cool Duff design in his sports area.
MrsMLKnight gave a great shout out to us in her town. Awwwww. Can you feel the love?
Dohh1 made a simplistic Duff design too.
HandsomeJimmyV sent this one in. Do YOU know what it says? 😉
johnthefis446 I think is just slightly annoyed with Flanders. What do you think? Channeling a lil Homer there? Lol.
justnikki92 made a nice lil place I would like to go to. SERENITY NOW!
Mike H added a lil 2D lettering to round out their Duff area.
tonystroot595 sent this one in. For me, all I can think of now is Gwen Stefani singing and spelling it out. “This **** is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!” Either way, it makes me giggle.
verdandee112 I am curious, just WHO is the one’s asking for help? The hospital? Dr. Nick could be on staff. The Retirement Castle? Imagine being trapped in there on Burrito night. Or those at Calmwood? They’re ALL in need of some help there. OH CRAP!! Here comes the guys in white coats with my special jacket…time to hop away!
A LOT of great submissions. LOVE IT!!! What did YOU think of the designs? Have a favorite? That about does it for this week. Next week, I want to see what you have done with your Olmec Head. Did you just hide it in a corner where it is out of the way for now? Did you add it to really cool design area? WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THE BIG UGLY HEAD??!!
Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff? Post your images to the Addicts Flickr, share them in the comments below, share your images on our Facebook Page, or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs!
