Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
By now everyone should be into the thick of things with the 4th of July Update, are you enjoying the content/dialogue so far? What are your thoughts on the new, expensive…but FREEMIUM, items added to the game?
The Sit-N-Rotate and the Lincoln Memorial are two new items added to TSTO with hefty price tags. The Lincoln Memorial is a limited-time decoration that will set you back a cool 100k, while the Sit-N-Rotate is a new, permanent, aspirational building that will run you 10 million.
So what are the details behind these items? Are they worth your Simpson Cash? Do they do anything? Let’s take a closer look and examine all the details behind these two new freemium items to TSTO….WARNING: Dialogue spoilers ahead.
Build Time: 3 days
Conform-O-Meter: Gluttony +10
Animation: Top rotates
Characters Use: Yes. This will unlock a new 2hr task for Principal Skinner & Selma…
|Dine at the Revolving Restaurant||2hrs||$110,27xp|
Questline: Yes. Short, but funny, questline involving Principal Skinner and Selma.
WARNING: Dialogue spoilers ahead.
Bring on the Revolution!
Skinner: Patty, I know things didn’t work out on our last date, but I wonder if you’d be interested in giving it another shot?
Selma: That date was twenty years ago. Also I’m Selma, not Patty.
Skinner: The straight one? Even better!
Selma: Back off, bub. In case you haven’t noticed, in this new Springfield single women are a hot commodity.
Skinner: And rightfully so! That’s why I want to take you out to the hottest new spot in town. You might even call it revolutionary!
Make Skinner and Selma Dine at the Revolving Restaurant– 4hrs, Earns $350, 90xp. Note: This time it’s a joint task, which is why the payout is higher & time longer. Once completed they each will have a task in their task list and the pay out will be as indicated above. As will the time.
Skinner: So what did you think?
Selma: The food was okay. But the prices were ridiculous.
Skinner: Well, that restaurant DID cost ten million to build.
Selma: Whatever. You paid, so I don’t care.
Worth Buying: In my opinion, yes. I like this better than some of the other Aspirational Items in the game. And while it won’t earn you any income, at least two characters can use it, unlike the Magnifying Glass or Escalator to Nowhere. This is one I will be adding to my game, eventually. The nice thing is it’s not limited-time so there is no rush. You can save up your hard earned cash for this one and get it down the line, when you’re ready.
Decoration: Lincoln Memorial
Build Time: Instant
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +870
Animation: No, it’s a stone statue. It just sits there and looks pretty.
Characters Use: No.
Questline: Yes, but only if Lincoln is in your game. A funny little dialogue exchange goes on between Lisa and Lincoln….
Lincoln on Lincoln
Lincoln: Okay, that is literally the LAST design I would have approved for a Lincoln Memorial. What garbage!
Lisa: No, it’s nice! You look regal.
Lincoln: Exactly! I’m sitting on a throne! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I sorta thought the POINT of America was “no more guys on thrones.”
Lisa: Uh… but this is OUR throne. So make that makes it okay?
Lincoln: Oh, and thanks for the MASSIVE GREEK TEMPLE. If there’s one thing I was ALL ABOUT, it was huge, loud, in-your-face Greek stuff. The whole “log cabin” thing? Yeah, total smokescreen. Glad you picked up on that. I was secretly into stone monstrosities the whole time. This is EXACTLY how I want to be remembered — as a higher-than-thou-know-it-all who insisted that every word he utter be ETCHED IN STONE FOR ALL TIME. Well done!!!
Lisa: Uh… hey look! Some rails that need splitting.
Make Abraham Lincoln Split Rails– 8hrs, Earns $420, 105xp
Worth Buying: In my opinion, yes. Personally, I like the memorial and i’m glad to have it in my town. Now the design options are going to be where it becomes tricky. This might be something you’ll want to purchase now, because it is limited-time, and store in your inventory until you can find the perfect place for it.
Again, keep in mind this IS Limited-Time so be sure to make your purchase before July 16th when the items leave our games!
