Conform-O-Meter Catch Up: Levels 46/47 & Simpsorama/Covercraft Episode Tie-Ins

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s Thanksgiving in Springfield…but before we can talk about all the new Thanksgiving items and how they impact the Conform-O-Meter, we first have to play a little Conform-O-Meter catch up!

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving we were hit with 2 Level Updates and 2 episode tie-ins.  Those events brought a ton of new decorations and requirements that impact the Conform-O-Meter, so let’s take a look at how it all breaks down!

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.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Phase 2 of Turkey Day is now active…as you may have seen when you finished the first part of the Thanksgiving Questline this pops up:

And well…today is Monday November 24th…so what’s in store today?

A new questline will start up once you enter your game… Gear Up For Savings! This should auto-start.

For now it’s just 1 part and a task for Homer.

This task has been added to the Turbo Tappin’ Thanksgiving rundown post..

What do YOU think of the slow Thanksgiving roll-out?  Thoughts on the short task for today?  Did it trigger for you or were you still finishing the first part?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
