Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well it’s not Christmas, but EA has dropped an update in our laps today nonetheless. As Springfield Heights Round 2 hits our games…
This is an IN-GAME update…so there’s nothing to download from the App Store. This should automatically download for you direct to your game once you start up TSTO. If you don’t see it (you should see the downloading update screen) try hard closing and restarting TSTO, you can also restart your device.
Cookie Kwan will start this off (should auto-start) for you. As always, I’ll be back with more info as soon as I go through it…
So as mentioned above Cookie will kick things off with some auto-start dialogue…
Cookie: This tunnel to Springfield Heights is ruining the curb appeal. It’s too bad there’s no possible way to move a tunnel.
Cookie: I’ve got some prime real estate- available for one day only!
Homer: Woo Hoo! Stuff on sale!
Cookie: It’s not on sale. The rich don’t need discounts.
Carl: What about government subsidies?
Lenny: Yeah, and there’s the whole “too big to fail” situation, too!
Cookie: Sure, the rich want free stuff. But when they spend it, they like to pay full price.
Lindsey Neagle: Is that 50 cups of coffee in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
At this point you’ll unlock a new questline for SH (which Cookie will start as well) and a whole bunch of new stuff in the shop!
First the premium SH items have made a comeback for the next 36hrs…so if you didn’t pick them up last time and wanted them, now’s your chance:
Polo Field House- 200 Donuts. Should I Buy
Plastic Surgery Center- 80 Donuts. Should I Buy
Incubator Think Tank- 100 Donuts. Should I Buy
Column Mansion- 120 Donuts. Should I Buy
A couple of changes/additions to Springfield and Heights
2 new strips in Springfield Heights…going away from the ocean
2 new strips in Springfield! Bottom of the screen, furthest from the mountains.
You can also change the look of your SH upgrade-able buildings! Just tap on them and you’ll be able to change to whichever facade you prefer… 🙂
Now onto the new free stuff…
First there’s a new currency in Springfield Heights…Ads
Here’s what you should see to start
Ocean Suite- 20 . +60k
Exotic Pond- 20 +120k
Elegant Grill- 10 +60k
Ultra Luxury Yacht- 200 +900k
Clay Tennis Court- 10 +150k
Gone Fission- 85 Donuts. +35million
Then there’s a whole bunch of stuff that will unlock as you move through the questline…
A NEW CHARACTER! Lindsey Naegle!
You’ll unlock Lindsey once you unlock the Marketing Agency, on the new land plot.
Marketing Agency- Unlocked via land 15 . Once unlocked you’ll get Lindsey Naegle. The Marketing Agency will also be how you earn Ads ( ).
Ads- To earn ads you’ll need to send characters on tasks at the Marketing Agency (just like all of the other SH currencies). Each time you send a character on a task there it’ll cost you TWO AND TWO and takes 16 minutes. The yield is 1 for Freemium characters and 2 for premium characters. Here’s a list of who can go:
Blue Haired Lawyer
Skinner (increases storage by 10)- Costs 40 and 20 to unlock
Martin (increases storage by 30)- Can only unlock AFTER you unlock Skinner. Costs 60 and 30 to unlock.
Carl (increases storage by 50)- Can only unlock AFTER you unlock Martin. Costs 80 and 40 to unlock.
Lenny (increases storage by 100)- Can only unlock AFTER you unlock Carl. Costs 100 and 50 to unlock.
MAXIMUM STORAGE FOR ADS IS 200.
