To Infinity and Beyond! Deep Space Homer Update Hits TSTO

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to explore a galaxy far far away…as the Space Update teased by EA has hit our games!

2016-01-21 20.46.05

This is an IN-GAME UPDATE, so no need to download a new update from the app store (as long as you’ve downloaded the winter removal update.  If you’re still seeing snow in Springfield, you won’t see the Space Update).

Kent Brockman will auto-start this for you.  After the first part (which is basically instant built), you’ll need Comic Book Guy free to start part 2 and Homer free for the task…which is 6s.  At that point you’ll unlock a few of the Deep Space Homer items in the store.   Once you complete another 6s task for Homer the “event” itself will start.  At least initially, this looks similar to the Thanksgiving Event we had this past year.  Where you complete tasks to unlock prizes.

I’ll be back with more details as soon as I go through it all….

It looks like (at least initially) this “event” is 2 weeks long…so it’ll end just in time for a Valentine’s Day Event.. Continue reading

Christmas/Winter 2015 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As the Christmas/Winter Event is over in Springfield…it’s time to look back on ALL of the items that were added/at one time for sale through this update & try to make them fit somewhere in our Springfield.  Throughout the last month many new/returning items were available for purchase or to win…a ton of stuff to fit into an already crammed Springfield!   With all of the new items  added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings (especially since this might help you decide what to keep out & what to put into storage).

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 Christmas event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, 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: Continue reading
