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:

Level Indolence Obedience Consumerism/
    Gluttony
39     470      290       264/288
Tree-hugging
     /Vanity
Righteousness Socialism
21,865/34,420          182     1,728

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:

Item Cost Category Points
Sanjay’s House $438000 Indolence 10
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:

Item Cost Category Points
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!

  1. Yay awesome Krustyland bus stop! Did it with lots of trees, wheels of chances, and gift shops. I think ring tosses may do well on the merch side as well.

  2. I’m a hoarder, I have no problem with the 5 star/ball LOL. Only problem with that is I’m still short about 50k of getting Apu’s ,(needless to say, no tile making until I’ve gotten it).

    • Apu’s place costs donuts, I thought…I’d give you the money if they let me…I screwed up and called Bunny a “lady” which is usually a good thing but after re-reading my comment, I see that it sounded harsh…I’m sorry for that…
      But yeah…I’d give you the money…it’s just sitting there, wanting to be spent… 🙂

      • DOH! I meant Sanjay’s house LOL. I’ll eventually get Apu’s apartment (mainly because I like Manjula).
        Right now, I’m getting 60 more donuts for Arnie, gotta have that helicopter! I appreciate the offer of the donuts, too bad EA won’t let it happen

        Another positive note, I’m halfway to the lighthouse 🙂

        Oh, GWB= Girls With Brains (you already knew that, though) .
        As for spiders, I have no problem killing them, even squish the little buggers with my fingers if they’re smaller than the palm of my hand… but I can think of a few other things men are good for… like changing light bulbs, and um… ummm…., well they are still good for something 😉

  3. Where do you get all this info Alissa? My rating hasn’t budged in either area…unless I just jinxed myself by saying that… 🙂
