Update 6/26/14 (Alissa): The Gil deal has brought back the nuclear option. It orginally disappeared due to issues of items disappearing from tapper’s inventories but now it’s back in your games! Woo-hoo! Go blow stuff up now!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just dropping in with a quick PSA on a NEW feature with the Stonecutters update…the Nuclear Option!
That’s right Tappers…EA has FINALLY given those who want to completely redesign their Springfield the button they’ve all been most coveting….a STORE ALL button!
But we want to warn you…be careful! If you Tap on this and go through with it…YOUR ENTIRE SPRINGFIELD WILL BE STORED. Great tool if you want to rebuild your Springfield…bad tool if you’re aimlessly tapping.
Here’s how you access the Nuclear Option:
Go into your Move Menu (the one in the bottom right with the 4 way arrows)
From there you’ll see the a nuclear explosion button on your bottom left:
Tap on that button to STORE YOUR ENTIRE SPRINGFIELD. It will warn you just in case you hit it by mistake:
So there you guys have it…your Nuclear Option PSA! A long time request of Tappers is FINALLY here! Just be care how you use this new power!
******************* UPDATE FROM THE FUZZBALL *********************
Hey hey hey… Wookiee here to let you know just what happens if you push the button.
Dear Jebus! The agony… the agony… the murderin and the scorchin and the flavorin and the glayvin…
Just kidding. So I’ve always been that kid that pushed the button I was told not to. Good news is I did it in my B town where I really haven’t done anything besides 2D. Like Alissa said, to blow everything up (aka put it all in storage)… go to your move menu.
Isn’t that town just ugly? It’s been asking to be blown up for a long time if you ask me. That mushroom cloud is all you need to tap. Your game will then make you confirm your decision FOUR times. That’s right tappers, there’s really no way to accidentally do this so don’t worry. Here’s the warnings… they made me giggle because I knew I was gonna make my B town go kablooey.
Your game will then take you to the load screen while it figures out what to do with all your irradiated bits and pieces.
When you next get to see your town, all that’s left will be your Simpsons house and Krustyland Shuttle plus any rubbish you may have left in your town. The rest of your schtuff, bits and bobs will be in storage. This means any character tasks you had going are canceled and until you replace buildings, the only characters you’ll have will be Lisa and Homer just like the days when you were on Level 1. It also means your conformometer will reset.
Additionally, there’s been a lot of questions if this is isolated to just Springfield or Krustyland or effected both. Well, after I atom bombed my Springfield, KL was fine and dandy. Just because I have an appetite for destruction (and also was called a guinea Wookiee by reader dapimp), I put up buildings in my Springfield and then dropped the bomb on KL. I can confirm the storage is specific to each area although my B town theme park is wrecked lol.
Hopefully that clears it all up for you. As a note, I would advise waiting to do this option until after the Stonecutter Event is over. In addition, there have been reports of decorations being placed in inventory that disappeared from the game with this event so I would hate for this to happen to anyone desiring to Nuke Their Springfield Til It Glowed. I can tell you my decs weren’t effected but that’s just me. I’ve always said I’d rather be lucky than S-M-R-T.
Hope everyone is loving this event as much as me. TTFN… Wookiee out!
UPDATE 830 PM EST (BUNNY):
EA seems to giveth and then taketh away. It seems that possibly an issue with items NOT storing and going into outer space may have caused EA to disable the Nuclear option in both Springfield and Krustyland. It was a cool idea, just glad they know to pull a glitch before too much chaos is caused. Lol. I hope they bring it back. I liked it.
The update also took away the option to store many items, like flowers, shrubs, trees (palm tree too), lamp posts…etc. These were the same items people were stating went missing when the Nuclear option was used.
