Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we’ve got Level 60 on our hands….
My apologies for not getting on this right away I was, shockingly, actually working lol.
Anywho you’ll see a bunch of stuff about levels on here….and then the task will auto trigger for you. Build the Googolplex for $1,852,000..
It looks like…EA has gone the way of Family Guy and Disney in that you’ll level up, but it doesn’t mean anything.
Which means they’ll introduce new characters through mini events and Bigger events not Levels. I’ll cover a bit more on this below…
Oh and Gil’s back!
I’ll be back with more as I go through it…
Ok so first thing I want to do is address the no more levels issue.
After you get the Level 60 message you’ll see this popup:
Followed by some dialogue by The Simpsons…
Homer: About Twenty levels too late, if you ask me.
Marge: I checked out when they introduced Bernice Hibbert as a “major character”
Lisa: Aren’t you at all upset, Bart?! No more levels! This game’s basically over!
Bart: Pfft, it ain’t over till the donuts stop flowing.
Now here’s the deal…you won’t stop Leveling Up. In the sense that when you fill your XP bar you’ll hit a new Level (and get free donuts). So you’ll no longer be “stuck” at Level 59 (or Level 60 in this case) waiting for EA to release a new Level.
However, this does mean the ability to get bonus donuts from Leveling Up (ie Farming for Donuts…) is now gone. Sorta. Since you’ll still get at least 1 donut for reaching a new level. Here’s a few Level Up screens you’ll see after level 60…
Oh and I want to thank Davidbo for his sacrifice in in-game cash to be sure to get Level 60 to trigger for us this week…thanks Dave! 😉
So does this mean the end of TSTO?
NO. Like Bart says, it ain’t over till the donuts stop flowing. What this means is, EA has decided to go the route of many other Freemium Games in that Level Updates mean nothing. They’ll introduce new content through Events, both mini (like the fire event) and large (like the current Wild West Event).
This also means I’m going to have to restructure the Walkthroughs pages lol…
So don’t panic about the end of TSTO….this is actually an OK move on EA’s part. Now everyone won’t be annoyed about where the next level is.
Oh and I’ll look through the files and see if I can find where the levels do cap….give me some time on that one.
Now onto the new content…
First let me tackle the Gil Deal…
Gil pops up in Springfield after you go through the initial Level 60 fun with a deal for Duff Gardens. Here’s what he has to say…
Gil: Sick of the several second commute to Krustyland? Then get Duff Gardens! It’s an amusement park you can build and expand…In your actual town!
Finally a short sales pitch from Gil…
If you reject the deal…
Gil: Oh, so you’d rather hang out in Krustyland? Yeah, right. You’ll be back.
And I’m going to have a whole other post breakdown on this. Because it’s A LOT of details to cover in the rundown post. But basically it comes with Lisa’s Lizard Queen Outfit…and then you can earn more prizes.
The Offer will leave our towns in 7 days…so make your decision before May 25th.
If you Pass On Gil’s Deal Initially….
It seems we have the Gil Bug going around again. Where you initially pass on the offer and then he disappears from the store.
First check your store…see if you see Gil like this:
If not try scrolling around in there and see if he’s somewhere else.
If not hard close/restart your game. If that still doesn’t work, uninstall/reinstall (as long as you have an EA/Origin account).
If all else fails…contact EA.
And here’s a look, finally, at the stuff associated with the Level…
As mentioned above Level 60 will kinda Auto start once you’ve gotten all of the other popups out of the way. And you’ll be tasked with building the Googolplex.
Googolplex- $1,852,000 . 6×11 in size. 24hr Build time.
Raphael– comes with Googolplex.
Duff Statue of Liberty- 60 Donuts. 2×2 in size. Earns 1.5% bonus on all cash and XP. Lights up when tapped. (she’s covered in lights, they turn on when you tap). Not unique, so you can buy more than 1.
Ok and there’s your basic new update rundown. I’ve got to now go through a million things to answer your questions…so here’s what I’m working on so you don’t have to ask me if I’m doing it, because it’s coming:
-Level 60 Walkthrough
-Should I buy/Full Details on Gil’s Deal
-More info about the levels, i.e. cap etc
-And Wild West Content
-General Store Caps
-Should I buy on Maggie, Sneed & Hot Springs
-Anything else I missed lol
