Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we’ve got ourselves an Episode Tie-in!

2015-01-21 20.19.57

This is for Sunday’s episode, The Musk Who Fell to Earth.

More details as we go through them…but for now know that Homer starts part 1 and will have a 3m task.  Followed by Lisa starting part 2.  For part 2 you’ll have to send 5 Springfielders on a 3m task.  So make sure you’ve got free characters to send.  Once you start part 2 you’ll unlock some premium goodies in the store.  More details are on the way.

For those that don’t like spoilers….here’s a quick rundown:

Part 1 Homer starts
Part 2 Lisa starts, you’ll need 5 Springfielders for the task
Part 3 Lisa starts, but you’ll need Willie to complete
Part 4 Lisa starts
Part 5 Lisa starts, again you’ll need 5 Springfielders for the task
Part 6 Mr. Burns starts

WARNING…Mild Spoilers below…

Ok so with this Episode tie-in you’ll see the option to purchase Premium Electric cars in the build menu after you’ve completed part 1 of the questline.  Your options are:

electriccarredflipped_transimageRed Electric Car- 35 Donuts, Earns 0.75% bonus on all cash and XP

And that my friends concludes the details behind this episode tie-in.  We’ll be back with Should I Buys & Walkthroughs for both questlines.

  1. Does the Power Generator have any impact on the conform-o-meter? I searched for the info, but couldn’t find it anywhere. Thanks for enlightening me 🙂

  2. Well @ least there was 1 Freemium item to purchase (rolls eyes @ EA)!

    I agree, there needs to be more Freemium Vehicles to purchase 🙂

  3. Will Wolverhampton Wanderers win promotion this year?

  4. I own a Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid so as soon as I saw the electric cars, I knew I had to have one in my game. Now if I could only get a hyperloop / monorail in my TSTO game. Wohoo!

  5. Will the swanky fish restaurant return this year?

  6. Not bothering with the cars would rather spend my saved donuts on a new premium character when I have enough! I love the new willie skin as he’s one of my favourites in the show. I placed him next to the escalator to nowhere as looks like he’s powering the thing as it goes up at same motion rate as he turns the wheel!

  7. Well, I got all three cars and 3% added to my cash and xp. I put the generator behind the Hungry Hun because for some reason it fits the theme of the building.

  8. Will Rex banner return in the 4th of July update this year?

  9. And the red walls are back to normal thank you EA for listening and acting on our request and to those tappers who responded to the EA forum post all of you.

  10. For me personally I do like these Episode Tie-In events as its little fun and little Nostalgia when I look back in few mouths and remember few of the jokes from the show.

  11. Hello fellow tappers, the red brick walls are back to normal. Maybe EA does listen to us when we complain. I just wish they offered an electric car for in game cash, even if it was just a decoration and didn’t add a bonus %. I can’t complain too much though with the power generator being so cheap and coming with a free willie skin and quest line. Any thoughts on when level 49 might come out?

  12. The cars are not a bad price for the bonus percent that they give. As I do not want to give EA, Fox, Musk, or Tesla the impression that I approve of Musk, Tesla, or any electric vehicle I am in a conundrum as to purchase or not to purchase such items.

    • Hey Clayton, I was just wondering why you don’t want to give the impression that you approve of any electric vehicle? I think electric cars are the wave of the future. I doubt if they put electric cars in TSTO as a sort of secret poll to see how popular they might be in real life. I understand how personal beliefs can carry over to the game(I’m a strict vegetarian(vegan) and I would have never bought something like the poor caged tom turkey at thanksgiving), but I was just wondering what yr thoughts were about electric cars. Have fun. Thanx.

      • It’s a step in the wrong direction that has been under development for the past 100 years with little improvement. Lets just leave it at that since this is not the place to get into such discussions.

    • i had a feeling my original comment would be “moderated”… if you guys are going to let users express their opinion/belief one way or another about a particular item, allowing them to leave it at “it’s a step in the wrong direction…” it seems only fair to allow others to respond to that. conversely, if you have to resort to removing the “reply” button from a particular post, perhaps that post should have been the one censored in the first place…

      • There is a difference of constructive criticism and blatant attacks. If a comment starts name calling, pointing fingers, or singling out an individual person…we will NOT allow it. That is exactly what your comment did. The original poster was very vague in their post and spoke in a manner in which did not incite hate or anger towards another. They instead took their opinion and understood this was not the place for such discussion and kindly bowed out.

        If you prefer to attack other readers or say things that may be seen as “abusive” then you will find your comments moderated. Any questions… see our site Guidelines. 🙂

        We protect ALL here and will not allow “hate speech” in any form.

        As far as the “reply” button. WE do not control that. It is an auto setting by those that created WordPress. WE don’t tell them how to run their sites. They control those settings. I kindly ask in the future to look at things through different eyes and instead of forming a comment in “attack” mode, step away for a bit and think over what you want to say. Think how others will perceive it. Kindness goes a long way. 🙂

    Hello. I know this is not relevant to the post but does anyone know how my neighbor got this character? I believe it’s the alien hippie from an episode that aired a while back. I looked everywhere for this.

  14. Is there a time limit on when this must be completed?

    • It looks like you have until the 28th to start it and until the end of February to finish the questline before it’s pulled from your game. But you’ll have to make all purchases before it leaves on the 28th of January.

  15. Lmao poor willie!!!

  16. My friend is having an error where cannot buy anymore donuts and the option has disappeared form the menu, is anyone else experiencing this?

    • Have them log out of their game. Log out of their app market. Restart their device. Go back to the App market as soon as the devices powers back up. Sign back in to the app Market. THEN launch the game again. See if that helps.

  17. Love the electric cars! Glad to see so much more variety lately in good-looking vehicles to grace my streets, first the Quimborghini, now these! 🙂 Now all we need is a Canyonero dealership, and Canyoneros to go with it.

  18. Love the electric cars, really glad to see some good looking vehicles to grace my streets, first the Quimborghini, now this 🙂

    Now all we need is a Canyonero dealership (and Canyoneros to go with it)

  19. I saw an update, got excited and then soon found out that it wasn’t a level. I felt like Bart and Lisa, getting in the cart thinking they’re going to Disneyland, but really they were just headed for the dentist. 🙁

  20. Gotta love new skins and questlines! As a freemium player I’ll pass on the electric cars but everything else with this episode tie in looks great!

  21. lol strange update. Good to see more vehicles being added, but still no way of adding them to roads without a hack.

    • tsk tsk tsk… that is a naughty word round here. 😉

    • I make parking lots out of pavement, rather than road. Looks great, and you can make it look seamless if you make the transition from road to pavement hidden behind a building!

      • I don’t understand why EA doesn’t allow us to park vehicles on top of the parking lot tiles. Come on, if that isn’t the most obvious placement for them… Granted, they may not fit into the spaces on them, but let Police Chief Wiggum and company worry about parking violations.

  22. Are the cars unique or go crazy and buy all you want?

  23. That and not a big fan of cars

  24. Questline! Stupid auto correct!
