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:

  1. Can someone help me contact EA? I was charged twice for purchasing the Bowlarama.

  2. My righteousness is on the move up…just had 3 of my buildings spray painted, gained a half star.

    And joined WordPress…lets see how I can make this work!!

  3. I don’t get the conform o meter sometimes. I was 5 stars until halloween, with maxed out levels, and then suddenly I was down to 4.5 stars as my righteousness went down to 1 star. I hadn’t put anything away. I dont graffiti friends. I had no graffiti in my town. It took me almost 40 training walls to get back to 5 stars. I have no clue what caused it.

    • Tracy - 1ltwoody920

      I too dropped 1 full righteousness stars. And I had to pull all 45 Training Walls out of storage. I suspect it is my neighbor ********* (my censoring) who keeps tagging me, and doing so on purpose by skipping other, easy taps.
      May be time to clos up my circle of friends.

  4. In my town are chips flying through the air :D. Space event has launched

  5. My wish came true!!! Sooner than expected but I just got BARNEY cheaper!!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOOO ♡

    • Thought you didn’t care about space… said you didn’t want any deep probing

      but yes I got Barney too…..only because he was a bargain
      🚀 🌟 🌠 🔭 🌒 🍩 🙂

  6. Update has hit

  7. Deep Space Homer is live via in-app update

  8. NARA is AWESOME!!! spoilers?

  9. Don’t know if this helps (you’re probably already on top of this), but the new “space” update has hit Android. It an in-game update and, well, that’s all I know right now.

  10. hi any one know when’s the new update gonna be and level 60? thanks

  11. Two questions if something is in your Inventory do you get the points still for your conform-I-meter? As well what’s the best thing to buy for tree-hugging tried to read the points for it but couldn’t make it out eaither my phone’s mest up or its written in colour (can’t read colour). Thanks.

  12. My righteousness is stuck at 1 freaking star…it has been stuck that way from the start of the winter event, someone spray painted a building…I cleaned it but as the event was hitting. I thought maybe it would work itself out after but still nothing.

    • Buy some training walls. I have a ton and hide them behind tall buildings. I never have a problem with the righteousness rating.

  13. OK. Thanks Alissa.

  14. How do you get more tracks for the monorail?

  15. Bring it on! When is the action going to start again in our game? Maybe….Level 60Will hit. In the mean time I have been working on
    getting more monorail pieces. Would love to see my town from an
    overall view but don’t know how that could be accomplished. Any ideas?

  16. Thank you Alissa,
    You’ve answered a question I hadn’t asked …………yet,
    I can put the big Snowman and hot squishee station in store till next winter (also, my large ice-skating area behind the ice rink is now out of business as it turned into a big square lake)
    🎈 🍩 🙂

    • Lee, that’s because I can read your mind. Don’t you know that by now?

      And stop thinking those thoughts! That’s not nice 😉

      • Yes, I was going to say you always read my mind,
        maybe I’m very boring and predictable
        😖 😔 😞 😧 😥 😐 🙂

  17. You’re right, that is a lot of stuff! It was an excellent Xmas in Springfield. I’m on Season Three in my quest to watch all the episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. It’s interesting to see the stuff from the show come into our ‘silly little game’. Thanks, Joe

  18. Drat. I meant to stock up on slides and forgot. Hope they bring it back.

  19. Always find indolence the hardest. No things to jam behind big buildings

    • Same here. When I had all the SH condos out indolence was finally at 5 stars, but once I started maxing out my bonus % with wailing walls and tennis courts I really couldn’t be bothered to keep out the buildings for the hidden XP anymore. Not a house farmer either so this is the one area I’m not maxed out on.
