Springfield Showoff: SAY WHAT??!!!

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 πŸ˜› ) 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 ourΒ “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Showoff words 3-1-14

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. πŸ˜‰ 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!!

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.

hungryhomerΒ 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!

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.

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

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?Β 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??!!

  1. I wrote my name using buildings…haven’t seen that on any tapped out design out there yet…i mean, they’re just farming buildings anyway…something to break the montony

  2. Aw I do feel the LOVE! πŸ˜‰ Thank you Addicts, I <3 the creativeness with the verbiage. Happy Tappin!

  3. Love the “Go banana” homage to Ralph Wiggum!

  4. πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’›β€οΈ I heart you all so much. thanks for the shout out! I got all giddy and scared Bryan (my Snowball II)

  5. Really enjoyed this post! I love seeing everybody’s art in one place with no load times to go from one pic to the next.
    Thanks Bunny!

  6. I have yet to figure out how to screen grab off my Kindle, but the very first 2D I created was in Flanders’ backyard, where I made a WWJD garden. and my latest, once I finally bagged the brewery, is a giant landscaped “Oh Yeah!”

  7. Im a word-nerd so I Loved this! Seapeach1 has an awesome greeting screen when you pop in πŸ™‚

  8. Bandango Phillips

    It’s nice to see a site that genuinely cares for their readers contributions. Keep up the great work, I can’t wait ’til the next showoff!

  9. Tried to write ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’. Gave up.

  10. I hate auto spell… *tohn*

  11. I do, I do! *waves hand*. Lay say lay, bohn toun, roo lay.

    Let the good times roll!!! πŸ˜‰

  12. Karen (kidkaren301)

    Shout out to elfgirl2012!! She was the only one who used rose bushes in her 2D lettering and it turned out amazing!!! πŸ˜€

    • In fairness…they did take a day to make. So unless people used a LOT of donuts…they were in small supply and I know I use at LEAST 100 bushes to make a decent word.

      But I was glad to see that someone was able to make something with them. Made me happy. πŸ˜‰

    • Erika Fournier (BraveElfgirl1994)

      Thanks for the shout out kidkaren301!!! Everyone showed such creativity in their designs, and I like all of them, rose bushes or no rose bushes, LOL!!!!!

      Thank you Addicts for including me in the show off! πŸ™‚

  13. Yay! Thanxs for the awesome shoutout! All these designs are super cool!

  14. Another reason the fans of this site deserve a round of applause! If we put our minds together we can probably build our own little TSTO Addicts colony on Mars πŸ™‚

  15. I’m thinking of doing a “KBBL RADIO: Now Playing” type thingy with random song titles…lil help with ideas?

    • If you do ANYTHING with Free Bird…you WILL be disowned, blocked, banned, punish-ed….and stuff. πŸ˜‰

      • I remember the night their plane went down…I lived near the drummer, Artemis Pyle, and even was his paperboy…will leave that and “Stairway to Heaven” alone…
        Was thinking of putting up random songs from the show plus the episode #…then I thought how all this sounds too much like work… πŸ˜‰

  16. WanderingCaveman

    I don’t know, unless someone has been playing around withe the chameleon circuit, that phone booth looks like more of a Bill & Ted model than a TARDIS. Can you imagine those two taking on the weeping angels…

    But seriously, great work all around.

  17. WooHoo Freak!

    • aaaww shucks, *head down, kicks at imaginary object on floor*

      WOOOOOHOOOOOOO (no, kindle, do not add that word to dictionary)
      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I thought of a “Don’t Blink” sign but the inventory options didn’t half fill the pallet I’d imagined…thought of a “Serenity Now!!!” Sign…
      No one reacted to my “Soupy Twist”…obscure british humor I found on Netflix…

      Thanks goes to Bunny who didn’t rat me out to EA for my “eff EA” sign … πŸ˜‰

  18. So many awesome and creative designs. Shout out to the message Homer left for Marge and Artie.
