Springfield Showoff: Parks and Rec

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 😛 ) 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 our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Springfield Park

As I am working at remodeling many areas…again…of my towns, I wanted to get an idea of what YOU have done to create some parks for your Springfield.

Here are the results…

  1. btw: Saramary’s stage area is EPIC! And Honorable Mention for everyone else 🙂

  2. Boyoboyoboy…. Missed it AGAIN! Last week I thought about what to send, made a few screenshots – and totally forgot. Disorganised much???

  3. SARAMARY!!! …you did my hole!!!…in your town…lol…I was about to do it last night but waited…go visit you and there you are…big freakn hole in the ground…no one can keep up with you!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. Thanks for showing my park. Shame I can’t quite fit it all into one screenshot, and I’m useless at stictching!

    Can I suggest that after Squidport you feature the Sunsphere as a showoff? I can’t be the only one that covets it and gave it a special area!?

    • I love your park Floozy, and I think I’ve seen it before… are we neighbors? (could be CRS though LOL)


      • Hi, thank you! It’s nice to get appreciation for all those hours spent tapping and designing! I wish there was in-game messaging so I could give praise to some of my neighbour’s designs.

        We might be neighbours, what’s your Origin ID? Mine is exactly the same as on here.

      • I’ll send you a request if you can make room for another?

        • I’m full right now and would love to make room for you & a few other squatters(I crack myself up) here, but I definitely don’t want to delete anyone until the game is back up & running for everyone. After that, I’m pretty vicious LOL, if a player hasn’t played in a day… hasta la veeesta baby! So, yes, please send me a request, & when I do start cleaning house, you’re in 🙂

  5. There’s some really cool ideas!
    I’ve never really thought about elaborate designs like some of the above.
    I’m one of those that try and place things neatly and orderly lol. I tried my hand at 3d and made a mess of it so never bothered again haha!
    Well done to everyone featured though, it’s great getting inspiration from others 🙂 xx

    • Flow, as far as the 2/3D, it takes some tweaking, I sucked big time when I started, and still have a long way to go. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to even touch Saramary or some of my neighbors I have. Keep trying, though, it does get easier the more you do it. 🙂

      • Yeah I will give it a go again.
        I struggle with funds to do it, I play freemium only so constantly saving my in game cash for the next build lol

        • I understand Flow, It takes a while to get up to the millions & not worry about fences & shrubs, etc. Now I just wish I’d paid attention when they started the new thing where it keeps letting you go with your designing, & just charges your ingame for what you do. I cannot believe how much I have in my inventory box that I could have used instead of buying more LOL It was definitely a DOH! moment when I first did it 🙂

          • Haha!
            I’m terrible for wanting an empty as possible inventory!
            I’m forever clearing it out, not sure why I don’t like having stuff In there, I just find it annoying lol!
            I know what you mean though, the amount of stuff I have bought and then realised I didn’t want it anymore so just sold it off rather than keeping, I’d be able to make some pretty elaborate designs (if I know how lol)

            • I have a problem doing that, I just can’t sell anything, they give you so little compared to what you paid for it. Funny thing is I really do not need in-game cash.

              • Oh I do lol. It takes me days to save up for buildings at the moment. I’ve got to choose between expansions or new buildings haha

              • granmamaDar

                I dropped quite a bit a while back, but have managed to build it back up again. I’m a hoarder on TSTO, always worried I’ll need something later down the road LOL

              • Hahah! I should take a leaf out of your book and store anything I buy but change my mind about. I’ll spend less then with each expansion/build

              • granmamaDar

                I used to want my storage box empty, and it always drove me nuts that I had a special Barney skin in there that I couldn’t use because I haven’t bought the Bowlerama with him yet. I got over that real quick when I kept getting the 4500 message, but was in the middle of a 3D attempt. Now I have enough junk in there to build another town LOL 🙂

              • Ha! I know I still have that skin too. It is annoying, I’ve it other stuff in there that I don’t want in my town, the truck for a start, I just don’t know where to place it, I keep telling myself that eventually I will have enough space and money to do something with it but so far that dream hasn’t come true.
                I’m not sure what else I have stored at the moment but I’m slowly starting to hoard rather than sell. Most of the stuff that could be in my inventory I’ve managed to hide amongst my town behind buildings and stuff! Mostly all the valentines crap I managed to accumulate lol

              • granmamaDar

                The truck is very awkward for me also, I’ve moved it several times… I was so thrilled when EA let us put the majority of our Valentine stuff in KL. I’ve already got too much in my SF, I need to switch some of the smaller dec’s (like flowers) over to larger ones. I wish we had more options as far as amount of land & items our towns can sustain & still function.

              • I never realised that the v.day items could go into krustyland. I really should check these things lol. I’ve noticed that there’s a limit for space but I’m no where near reaching that point yet, I’ve only been playing a couple of months I am level 40 but I’ve bought so many decorations over the months I think that has helped me get my xp’s up. I’ve noticed I’m only just starting quests my other half done months again and he’s only level 40 too, it’s strange how it differs from player to player.

              • granmamaDar

                Yep, the only items from V-day you can’t are the Choochoo trains & the ponds, it’s probably because they give you a percentage bonus on $ & XP

              • Aw that’s pretty cool! I managed to find a place for my truck, I just made a petrol station and put it there with homers car haha

              • granmamaDar

                Great idea Flow! I’ll have to figure one out like that also! Thank you 🙂

              • You’re welcome. I don’t know why i didn’t think about that before now x

  6. Sarnmary concert stage is mega

  7. granmamadar, you made it on the post!!! Wheres your pics Freak?

    • Just started using flicker…I really didn’t feel I had much to show for this category…last week I must’ve sent my easter pics to the wrong address…I AM an idiot… 😉

      • LOL, I emailed mine in, Bunny has been trying to get me on flicker… guess I am fighting the change LOL 🙂

      • Bunny has been awesome to me…I’m still trying to understand what does what on flicker…want to learn how to stitch screens…but as for the ShowOff… 🙂 …Bunny had me up there so much I’m actually glad not being up there…Thank you so much Miss Bunny!!!
        🙂 Hope you’re having a great day!!!

    • Thanks Ryan 🙂
      Ya Freak where’s yours… hey Ryan, where’s **yours**? LOL

      • On flicker… 🙂

        • Ya, I gotta get one of those thingies. How do I view what you have?

          • How was work?…What do you do?…there’s a link to TsTo aDdIcTs flicker group on the right edge of this page…tap where it says “more pics”…once there, scroll down the pics til you see mine…you can tap my photostream to see my pics as well but there’s not much more there…all tsto screens…haven’t put any “real” pics there… 🙂

            • Work was good, even though everything wasn’t working right. Once in a while I have a bad day, but they are few and far between, it is what you make of it. I have been at my company since 1988, and have been up & down the ladder enough times to realize I only want to be a cashier. I love my customers (well most of them, & especially the ornery old men who I can make smile), and when I walk out the door my job is done. No on call, no worrying this or that didn’t get done, no inventory, no responsibility except the customer in front of me 🙂 I figure my customers like me as much as I like them, I got $35 in bonuses in the last 2 weeks for customer compliments to the company mentioning my name 🙂

              Thanks for the flicker help, I usually don’t look over there -> or up there ^, except maybe to click an ad when I’m bored to help the blog 🙂

            • Freak, I couldn’t find any Gary under TSTO on flicker, so I did a search for Gary, & came up with some hot looking bald guy, another hot looking bald guy, a hot bald guy in a kilt, and a bunch of cute young chicks. LOL!

              • freaknstein8

                …go to the tstoaddicts group simply by tapping the “more pics” below the small flicker section on the right…may have to scroll up or down…lol…am I right guys?

  8. Thanks Bunny for posting my pics.😃 I loved seeing all the great designs. Shout out to neighbor-eenos, granmamaDar & Saramary3. SM3……another AWESOME design.

    • Tag ;P

      • I see your little trick, Miss granSneakyDar…lol. You tag once, (lure me into your trap), I unload ALL cans….then you leisurely stroll back later to finish the job………..very clever. Two can play that game……cue evil laugh in 3…..2…..1 BWAAAHAHAHAHA! 💀

        • Awww man, the cat’s outta the bag LOL

          It was a good idea though, don’cha think? 😉

  9. I love seeing everyone’s designs, especially yours Saramary…you just blow me away with some of the elaborate creations you do! I feel honored that my simple little park is featured with yours! Great job everyone!

  10. Nice parks everyone! I just finished mine today. I might borrow some ideas from you guys though!!!

    • I was just there and you were robbed!!!…poor thing, and you really can’t count on the Springfield police force…lol…I’m referring to your vacant lot, by the way… 🙂

      • Oh no! Eh, I had to redo my town to fit the new buildings. Still not entirely happy with all placements. I am practicing 3d art in that empty lot. I’ve taken some inspiration from you & others. I totally stink at making words, so far. I’ve got to check out Flickr and this site more for help.

        • Cewl…I do like messing around with…randomality…?!? 🙂 …already de-walled my castle…lol

    • Hi neighbor! I saw your post & went to check it out even though I already visited this morning, and I just want to say I LOVE it! Very nice touches to the individual areas & how you put the putt-putt & mount in the back of it. Have always loved your Burns estate too 🙂 Great job 🙂

    • What are you waiting for, Safi??? 🙂 …you have the technology… 🙂

      • I’m waiting for a Gil donut deal! I’m going to become a premium player next Gil deal. And I plan on placing the Open Air Stage in my park. So as that will be the focal point, I’m waiting for that before I put the other smaller stuff.

      • Gil doesn’t sell decoration, man…lol 🙂

      • Just messing with you, Safi… 🙂

  19. @sarmary3

    I bow down before the master. Indeed, I am not worthy!
