Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
YeeHaw! The Wild West has arrived in our pocket-sized Springfields! With bandits to tie up, guns to sling, gold to pan & gold ole’ Homer getting everyone all riled up! So bust open the vaults and grab those donuts because there are loads of new Wild West themed premium items in our stores!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add either the Hot Springs or the Old West Sign to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down these Wild West themed decorations and determine if they’re worth your donuts….
So these are both decorations…and as you all should know by now, when it comes to decorations I believe it’s a personal decision. What works/doesn’t work with your town is up to you. Nevertheless, I know there are some of you curious about these two, so I figured let me do a quick breakdown of each.
But in the end, the decision is yours. If you like them…get them. Otherwise, pass if you have no use. There’s no need to spend the donuts on something you don’t really need/want 🙂
Decoration: Hot Springs
Donut Cost: 45 Donuts
Bonus%: 2.25% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Tree-hugging +40
What Does it Do?: Steam comes off (as the picture shows) always, and when tapped it bubbles. Other than that it’s just another water decoration…like the free river, but costs donuts.
Where Can I Place It?: Grass
Leaves stores on May 30th
Would You Buy It?
No. While the bonus % is the better of the two decorations in this post…at the end of the day it’s still just a body of water for your Springfield. And we have a TON of those. Plus it can’t even go on dirt. So it kind of defeats the purpose of using it in your Old West area, no?
But, as I say above, it’s a decoration…and your Springfield design is your own choice. So if you like it, and want it…get it. Otherwise pass.
Decoration: Old West (Springfield) Sign
Donut Cost: 35 Donuts
Bonus%: 1% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +400
What Does it Do?: Nothing. It’s a sign. It just sits there and acts sign like.
Where Can I Place It?: Grass, Dirt, Pavement, Boardwalk, Beach
Leaves stores on May 30th
Would You buy It?
Not really. It’s just a sign and the 1% bonus isn’t that great (jet engine bike or Police Car are better deals). I’m perfectly happy with the Bloodbath Gulch Sign for my Old West Area. 35 donuts seems steep on this…at least to me.
Of course as I said earlier, if you like it buy it. It’s a decoration. And decorating your Springfield is a personal thing.
So get it because you like it, but not because it’s a good return on your investment.
And that’s it, the complete breakdown of the Hot Springs and Old West Sign!
