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:
As you can see, Level 39 has increased most of the requirements. Consumerism and Gluttony have increased by 2 points each…that’s not so bad right? Tree-hugging has jumped up 1,290 points. Vanity saw a 2,300 point increase while Righteousness went up about 9 points. Hey more people in Springfield the harder it is to keep crime off the streets! And Socialism saw a 102 point jump…which should be easy to hit with the new Friend Point Prize!
So now let’s take a look at how these new buildings and decorations Level 39 dropped in impact our Conform-o-Meter:
|E.A.R.L Lighthouse||5,000 FP||Vanity||100|
|Manjula’s Apartment||160 Donuts||Indolence||10|
|Shiva Statue||40 Donuts||Vanity||400|
Now onto the Krust-o-Meter! You can find all of the details behind the Krust-o-Meter here, but it’s basically a Conform-O-Meter for Krustyland. The Level 39 update introduced EIGHT NEW items for Krustyland (finally!) and here’s how those items impact the Krust-o-Meter:
|Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck||1,000 Tickets||Grub||10|
|Sleazy Duff Topiary||400 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Queasy Duff Topiary||400 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Surly Duff Topiary||300 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Dizzy Duff Topiary||400 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Edgy Duff Topiary||300 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Remorseful Duff Topiary||300 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
|Tipsy Duff Topiary||500 Tickets||Kitsch||10|
Now many of you have been commenting that the requirements must have changed because you noticed a drop in your KL ratings. BUT the requirements HAVE NOT changed. In fact they’re basically a set requirement to achieve each level of bouncing balls, and those requirements can be found here.
The reason why your Krust-O-Meter ratings may have dropped is because the trees have dropped from awarding you 25 points each to Kitsch all the way down to 10 points each (a 15 point drop!) So if you’ve been relying on those trees to help your Kitsch rating you’ll have to add loads more to boost that rating back up!
So there you have it my friends…just how all the new goodies from Level 39 impact our Conform and Krust o-Meters! What do you think? Let us know how your meters are doing! Are you maxed out? If not what area(s) currently needs a boost? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
