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..

Sorry this took me a little longer than anticipated to update…dealing with a 2 month old who didn’t want to nap today.

First up, from what I can tell by the game script requirements.  You have to have Quimby unlocked in order to start this.

So, as mentioned above this is similar to the Thanksgiving Event, where you have to complete tasks in order to unlock prizes.  The prize task screen will open for you once you’ve completed Mars Won Pt. 3.  

First let’s look at what’s new in the store..

rocket launch pad emptyRocket Launch Pad- Free, 9×7 in size.  Instant Build.  Available at Mars Won Pt. 1

New Stuff…

Space_Shuttle NASA_BarneySpace Shuttle Simulator- 120 Donuts.  Comes with Astronaut Barney.  Also produced NARA stars.  Yes, we’ll be doing a Should I Buy…

Inanimated_Carbon_RodInanimate Carbon Rod Monument- 3o Donuts.  Earns 2.75% bonus on all cash and XP (Should I Buy will be done on it, BUT that’s a great value for the bonus % return…)

Returning…

portalgate_menuPortal to Rigel 7- 75 Donuts. Earns $200, 22xp/8hrs Should I Buy

ico_thoh2014_crafting_rigelliantribalhutRigellian Tribal Hut- 20 Donuts.  Earns $75, 7xp/3hrs.

ico_thoh2014_crafting_rigellianshrubRigellian Shrub- 5 Donuts.

Not going to do new Should I Buys for the 3 Rigellian items.  Honestly, they’re not worth it.  Don’t waste your donuts on them.  

Special Barney Offer…

You can now buy Barney’s Bowlarama and Barney for 250 donuts with a rebate of 130 donuts..that’s a steal!

Another touch….

Potato chips are floating around the air of Springfield…so not you’re not seeing things 😉

chips

If you don’t get the Potato Chips…you must not have seen Deep Space Homer.  It’s a classic gag from the episode.  For those that are confused and don’t get it….


 

And that covers the basics of this mini event.  Just remember you’ve got 2 weeks to earn all of the prizes and then it’s onto something new!

Event Ends February 4th…

What do you think of the Deep Space Homer Event?  Thoughts on the prizes?  How about Barney?  Like the floating chips?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I must be playing a re edition mini event for NARA. When I bought Barney with his bowling alley, the space shuttle item disappeared for purchase. Not in my items either. Any ideas? Thx

  2. It’s a cool update I guess, but I’ll be storing the space shuttle platform thing when it’s over coz I’ll never finish the full thing in time and it takes up space and looks out of place no matter where I put it

  3. I WAS ABIT DISAPOINTED AND CONFUSED OVER THE ANIMATIONS… I WOULD HAVE LIKED THEM MORE IN STYLE OF THE GORGE-ANIMATION…
    WELL SECOND. I DONT WANT TO BE A WINER BUTBIM NOT FOND OF MY SPACESHIP RAFT BEING ON CONSTANT FIRE…
    BUT THOSE GHIPS I WOULD LOVE IF YOU COULD HAVE BOUGHT SOME KIND OF PREMIUM TO SEND HOMER CHIPS HUNTING IN ZERO GRAVITY FROM TIME TO TIME
    SO… FOR ALL ITS WORTH
    I GOULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT THIS UPDATE

    OH ALSO.. I 🇱🇴🇻🇪 YOU GUYS FOR DOING THIS I ALWAYS GHECK IN ON YOU FOR EVERY UPDATE 😉

  4. I’ve been reading through comments and maybe I’ve missed it, but haven’t seen any mention of the very recent episode, “The Man Who Came to Be Dinner.” Bart steals Homer’s space chips, to the same classic music. 🙂
