From the Mouths of Addicts: A Conversation with Mopurglar

mouthsofaddictstappermonthmo

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post is all about our Tapper of the Month for April Mopurglar!

Back on April 1st we announced the TSTO Communities of Topix, Addicts & game voted Mopurglar as the Tapper of the Month during our monthly Shout Out!  As part of the Tapper of the Month we interviewed Mo to get a better feel for why he created his Springfield the way he did and some advice he might have for other Tappers when it comes to design.

So without further ado let’s see what Mo had to say!  Continue reading

In Game Update: HotFix/Patch

There was another update to the game. It looks to be to correct a lot of errors and issues with original release. I am currently going through the info to see what changes it has made and see if it clarifies whether the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop and Maude are 25 donuts or 150 donuts. The original files showed 25 donuts.

update 492014

Will update with info as I find it…

UPDATE 5:45PM EST:
CONFIRMATION. The combo is now 150 donuts. So for all you lucky people that got the combo at 25 Donuts…you got one heck of a good deal. For everyone else, sorry. You now have to pay the full price for post. It makes a lot more sense now as to why just Maude was 90 donuts.

 

Until Next Time…

Maude Ghost Glitch

Hey there Hoppereenos. An in game update hit, and sadly… so did the usual hiccups/glitches. So I am here to help all I can with the issues.

First off pretty much ANY time you get a glitch in your game, the go to is the basic troubleshooting steps. I outline them in my post HERE. Feel free to use it at anytime.

So here is the main report/issue I am seeing. The newer players that did not have the chance to get the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop and Maude during Halloween now have it with the new tie-in update. So just how do you get them? Well first off, you need to complete the first part of Homer’s questline to unlock the ability to buy the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop for 25 donuts. (FRAKKIN SWEET COST!!)  See the new update for the new/corrected price now…150 donuts here.

Once the purchase is made, you should be able to go to your inventory/storage area (that cute lil cardboard box on the bottom left corner of your screen when you go into the menus). Once in there just scroll through and you should see the TWO items listed completely separate in your inventory. Then it is just a matter of placing them into your game.

It is somewhere around this point that it seems one or both go missing. So I would say to try those basic troubleshooting steps to see if it helps bring them back into the game. If all else fails, contact EA so you get a report on file and they are alerted to a possible wide spread issue as well as helping you resolve it as fast as they can.

UPDATE:
Just hopping back in for a quick lil blurb, for those of you that ONLY received the Gypsy Fortune Teller Shop in the past and now just have Maude to purchase for 90 donuts instead, I would suggest to contact EA. I say this due to they respond to the players and make changes varying on our comments back to them. If enough players reach out to them, maybe they will make a change in our favor. Worth a try anyway, right? 🙂

Until Next Time…

Random Changes Noticed -DOFF

Hey there Hoppereenos. How are you doing on the Episode Tie-In Update? Are you giggling as much as I am at the Homer collapsing animation? I don’t know why. Maybe it is the look on his face. Maybe it is how he gets up all innocent and “nothing happened…nope…not at all” attitude. How many times has Homer been in the hospital now? That guy. Despite it all, he keeps on gorging himself on all he can.

Well it’s not Whacking Day and it’s 1 day before the “other game” (Update Clarification the “other game” is the Family Guy Game which is released tomorrow.  We have a full site dedicated to it (FamilyGuyAddicts.com) BUT when we first told you guys about the new site I PROMISED I wouldn’t talk about it on TSTO Addicts again…since it’s such a polarizing topic.  However, looks like some people are confused by that reference just wanted to clarify it 🙂 ) is released BUT it’s an in-game update nonetheless!  I’ve got to tell you, when I looked at the upcoming episodes of The Simpsons THIS is one I had marked as a possible Episode Tie-In (and one I was hoping for!).  So let’s take a look at the goodies this new update brings…

As always for our friends who don’t like to know what’s in the update before they play it details are below the fold…so SPOILERS AHEAD!

UPDATE: There was a HOTFIX/Patch to the Game about 5:30PM EST…to see more CLICK HERE!
