Should I Buy the Stonecutter Daycare, Fences, and Tube Slide?

The Stonecutters Event has arrived. With all of the new Stonecutter Items that are Limited Time, it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that Limited Time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts in game cash & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should spend your hard earned in game cash on the Limited time Stonecutter items for your Springfield?  Well  let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these items.

Stonecutter Daycare Center

Building: Stonecutter Daycare
In Game Cash Price: $250,000
Dimensions: 8×10
Payout: 
$200, 20xp Every 12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10

Pros:
-Average Price for a new building.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-Animation. Shadows of kids running around and chasing a ball.
-Sound Effects. Sounds of children laughing and playing when tapped.
-Has $$$ & XP earning tasks associated with it.

Premium Stonecutter Run the Stonecutter Daycare 2hrs $190, 40XP
Regular Stonecutter Run the Stonecutter Daycare 2hrs $125, 27XP

Cons:
-Tasks are limited to just Stonecutters.

Final Thought:
Personally, I bought this right away. I love the look of the Daycare and all the play are items outside. It makes it really easy to decorate with. I also like that this is a Special Event item that will continue to get used AFTER the Stonecutter Event is over. The tasks are only 2hrs, so a great time to put a lot of characters on to earn $$ and XP in a short amount of time.  (Those Easter Pastel fences look great around it.)

 

Tube Slide

Decoration: Tube Slide
In Game Cash Price: $2,500
Dimensions: 3×2
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Unique: 
No. Buy as many as you want.

Pros:
-Reasonably priced for a nice colored cool decoration.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-Many possibilities of locations to place it in your Springfield.

Cons:
-No characters have tasks with the decoration (would be cool to see a kid sliding down it).
-No questline associated with it.
-No animation associated with it.

Final Thought:
Personally, I bought several of these. They look great next to the Daycare, in a park setting, at the school, and in the backyards of the neighborhood. Definitely a different and unique looking item. Great color. Overall just a really cool item to decorate your Springfield with and full of possibilities.

 

Hieroglyph Wall 3

 

Building: Hieroglyph Wall
In Game Cash Price: $500
Dimensions: 1×2
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +05
Unique:
No. Buy as many as you want.

Pros:
-Reasonably priced for a cool looking wall.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-360 turn that allows 4 different looks.

Cons:
-No animation associated with it.

Final Thought:
Personally, I loaded up on these. (Let’s just say about 1000.) I placed several in my town then moved them to my storage. They look really cool and add another great wall for 2D and 3D designs. Perfect to surround just about any building as the color is very basic, so goes with anything.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do.  Whatever you decide just remember, this is a Limited-time item…so if you’re thinking about it make sure you make your decision prior to the Stonecutter Event leaving our games July 2nd.

Should I Take Gil’s Deal?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Gil is once again in Springfield..and this time with a golden deal!  He’s bringing you a 250 Donut Deal on Lampwick’s Gold Mansion!  With many Tappers requesting this Golden Mansion once they saw Lampwick was in the game, it’s nice to see EA listening to Tapper’s request…even if it does come with a hefty price tag.

This deal runs out on July 1st…which means there’s not much time left to decide if you want it in YOUR Springfield.  I know with that clock running down, and Gil begging in your Springfield it might be tempting to just buy buy buy!  BUT is this item worth your hard earned sprinkles?  Before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bling bling to YOUR Springfield….

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  How was your weekend? Everyone in full summer mode yet?  Our friends “down under” bundle up for the long winter nights?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to play whack a Bunny!  Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!  (this is very quickly becoming our favorite time of the week by the way!  You guys have some AWESOME things to say!)

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Stonecutter Event is winding down, what are your thoughts on the event as a whole?  Gil made a special appearance in our games last week.  Bringing a high priced Gold Mansion to our Springfields, but hey it’s a GOLD MANSION…did you expect it to be free?  World Cup is in full swing into the knock out round, did your country advance?  Who are you rooting for?  Yankees v Redsox is Sunday Night Baseball tonight…so you know where I’ll be at 8!

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun and glitchs, World Cup Soccer,   MLB or anything else you can think of!   Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Mad Men of Springfield: Chester J. Lampwick

Welcome to another edition of the Mad Men of Springfield here at TSTO Addicts. We will be going into depth on the history and background of the male species running around our lil towns as well as those not yet in the game.

Just think about it. What Man living in Springfield is “normal”? Not a single one that I can think of. They all have at least ONE thing wrong with them. Seriously! Think about it. How many issues does Moe have? A Reverend a “little” obsessed with trains? An owner of a Kwik-E-Mart that goes to counseling with the same person that robs him, on a daily basis? Not to mention the “inbreeding” and other strange happenings going on at the farm. Oh the idiosyncrasies.

So sit back, relax, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy as we kram your brains with some Simpson knowledge of the MAD MEN OF SPRINGFIELD.

What a Wookiee Wants: More Krustyland Ideas

What do you call Chewbacca when he has chocolate stuck in his hair?

A Chocolate Chip Wookiee.

Sorry, had to share but does that make me a cheesey poof Wookiee?  Consider that as the world turns lol.  Anywho… I realized it had been a while since I did one of these WAWW posts and figured I’d use some of my extra photos from my latest sojourn to Krustyland in Hollywood to bring out some ideas.

What kind of spy do I eye? Yet another ramble.

What is a spy to do when he gets cold?  Go undercover of course.  Speaking of that, boy do I love my sleep.  The lady Addicts could tell you I’m sometimes in a class all my own.  Is it hibernation maybe?  I don’t know.  Anywho… so today I slept in a little and when I got into my town I was like “Holy Jebus, I’m popular!”

Creepy lurking eyes in pyramids were all over Wookieetown.  Seriously… anyone else think those shifty eyes are a little unsettling?  Do the images at least make you feel the feels?  Jeez those things give me the heebie jeebies.

Eye Spy 2 Eye SpyEye Spy 2Eye Spy

Alright… getting to my point… as I was unspying my town and wishing I’d woke up earlier to earn more emblems, I started noticing a pattern for the spying of my neighboreenos.  Slowly, I’m seeing what kind of spies YOU really are.

Where Did THAT Come From – KBBL Radio

Well hey howdy hello out there all you tapa-tapa-tappers.  Wooking popping in on the “airwaves” with another WDTCF post for your reading enjoyment.  I’d say listening pleasure but of course that would mean you’re hearing voices in your head and that’s a whole different subject.  Does make me wonder what folks think I sound like but I’ll save that rambling for later.

This post is about the Level 9 Friendship Prize, KBBL Radio.  I for one am super stoked this building is finally in our game.  Heck, I’ve been jabbering about it in at least three different posts, one all the way back in November of last year.

KBBL station Continue reading
