julytapperofthemonth

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 July qtuappele!

Back on July 10th we announced the TSTO Communities of Topix, Addicts & game voted qtuappele as the Tapper of the Month during our monthly Shout Out!  As part of the Tapper of the Month we interviewed qtuappele to get a better feel for why she created her Springfields the way she did and some advice she might have for other Tappers when it comes to design.

So without further ado let’s see what she had to say!

Should I Spend Donuts On the Unoriginal Log Ride?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 43 has arrived on our favorite Tapping Devices & with it comes signs of life for the once forgotten Krustyland!  New rides, restaurants and decorations have made Krustyland relevant again, at least for 1 level anyway.  Now I know you may be trying to decide if the new premium items are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth your donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Unoriginal Log Ride to your Krustyland?  Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this splash zone ride to your Krustyland…..

Addicts Want to Know: Nuke Results & Some Fun….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we asked you guys if you were planning on nuking your Springfield.  This week we wanted to share those results with you, but also have a little fun with a new poll!

Make sure you let us know why you picked what you did in the comments below 🙂

Where Did THOSE Come From – New Krustyland Stuff

Oh Krustyland… how I love thee.  Is it your shabby likeness to my beloved House of Mouse or is it your fabulous connection to Universal Studios?  I don’t know that it even matters.  I am an admitted theme park enthusiast and having one in my favorite mobile game makes me incredibly happy.  Literally as I write this I can hear the 9:30 fireworks from the Happiest Place on Earth.  Theme parks rock except for losing my phone at Six Flags last week, that stunk lol.

A lot of tappers have mentioned they wanted KL to get more love and I am so thrilled that EA came through with this latest level.  4 new rides and another decoration plus a free character… Wowza.  For this post, we’re gonna take a look at just where all these new things come from.

Level 43 and the O-Meters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 43 has arrived in Springfield!  And, as usual, with the release of Level 43 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed.  Let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are, so  you can have all the information you’ll 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.

What IS different about this update is it’s solely for Krustyland.  So while the requirements for a 5-Star town have changed, not one of the new buildings/decorations will impact it.  Instead the new rides, restaurants & decorations will impact your Krust-O-Meter.  Although the requirements for the Krust-O-Meter do not change.

Confused yet?  To recap…Conform-O-Meter requirements have changed with Level 43, Krust-O-Meter requirements have not changed with the update.  New buildings for Level 43 will impact the Krust-O-Meter only, no impact on the Conform-O-Meter.

So enough explaining, let’s show you.  At Level 43 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter: Continue reading

Tapped Out Walkthroughs: Level 42 & The Revenue Streams

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Level 43 has arrived on our Tapping devices…and as I sat down to do the Level 43 full dialogue walkthrough, I realized I never posted Level 42’s full dialogue walkthrough.  Of course we’ve had our Turbo Tappin’ (quick walkthrough) up since the update hit our games (check out the Level 42 Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough here), but I completely dropped the ball on posting the full version.

I know many of you love going back and reading old walkthroughs just in case there was anything you missed when playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 42.  So for those that may have missed it…I bring you all the fun and humor of Roger Myers Jr & Level 42…..

Where Did THAT Come From – Gorgeous Grampa

Oi Oi Oi!

How are all my favorite readers doing?  Wookiee back from a little life-enforced hiatus to do what I do with some WDTCF action.  I know these may not be everyone’s “cup of tea”, but I relish any opportunity to dish a bit on the origins of our stuff in TSTO.  For this edition, I thought it’d be fun to talk about one of the premium character skins from this year’s yard sale… Gorgeous Grampa.  If these posts are your bag, click more and we’ll be on our way.
