4th of July and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Independence Day in Springfield!   Time to blow stuff up and eat loads of Banana Kabooms! So now that we’ve got a little more red, white and blue in Springfield, just how do all those new items impact the Conform-O-Meter?  As we’re approaching the halfway mark of the event, I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.

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.

While the 4th of July Event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements (Level 42 did though!), it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

New Buildings:

Item Cost  Category Points
Sit-N-Rotate $10,000,000 Gluttony 100
Nighthawk Diner 90 Donuts Gluttony 10
Lincoln’s Cabin 150 Donuts Indolence 10

Giuseppe’s Workshop does not impact the Conform-O-Meter.  

Decorations:

Item Cost  Category Points
Lincoln Memorial $100,000 Vanity 870
Liberty Bell $50,000 Obedience 10
American Flag $5,600 Vanity 450
Fireworks Barge 80 Donuts Vanity 800
Cherry Tree 180 Donuts Indolence 10
Pinwheel Firework 40 Donuts Vanity 450
Crate of Fireworks 60 Donuts Vanity 600
Lisa Statue of Liberty 75 Donuts Obedience 10

So there you have it my friends!  The complete rundown of how all of the new 4th of July Goodies impact the Conform-O-Meter.  Lots of new decorations/buildings to improve your ratings all around!
