Where did THAT come from: The Seven Duffs

Heigh ho, heigh ho, on an origin post we go… at Addicts we say WDTCF, heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho heigh ho heigh ho!

Woo hoo!  This is the post I’ve been waiting my whole TSTO blogging experience to do.  Who doesn’t want to know more about Grumpy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Happy, Bashful, Dopey and Doc?  I mean c’mon, they’re like the coolest little people that ever appeared in a faerie tale….

What was that Bunny?  I’m not supposed to talk about a German fairy tale that was made famous by the Brothers Grimm and then even more famous by Walt Disney?  You mean we got new decorations for Krustyland that have something to do with the 7 dwarfs but different?  I have to put my love for Disney where? What do you mean Surly?  I’ll show you surly you cotton-tailed, floppy-eared varmint…..   errrr, people are reading this?  Ummm… errrrr….  HELLO! Wookiee here and I guess I’m not writing about Snow White and instead supposed to be talking about seven of our new decorations in Krustyland that came with Level 39.  Without further rambling, I guess let’s get started.

Level 39 and the -O-Meters (Conform and Krust)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Tuesday (3/25) meant the end of St. Patrick’s Day in Springfield (as well as the end of the War of Art Episode Tie-In) but alas our rivers were still green since an actual update was required to rid our town of green water for another year.  And that update hit on Friday (3/28)!

Of course with the release of Level 39 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are.  So 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 39 update has introduced 2 new buildings, 2 new characters, 2 new decorations (including the Friend Point E.A.R.L) & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield.  (we’ll cover Krustyland after Springfield)  At Level 39 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter: Continue reading
