Homer’s Chiliad and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s getting hot in Springfield, as the Chiliad mini event has invaded our games for the last week plus bringing several  new items to our pocket sized towns. 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 Chiliad Event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

Item Cost Category Points
Insanity Cauldron Free (Prize) Vanity +100
A Little Bit of Lenny Free (Prize) Vanity +100
Backwater Brewery Free (Prize) Gluttony +10
Hellfire Pepper Cacuts Prize/15 Donuts Vanity +200
King Chili Tent Free (Prize) Vanity +100
Five Alarm Chili Stand 75 Donuts (w/out Devil Flanders) Vanity +200
Pro-Shop 120 Donuts Consumerism +10
Ajax Steel Mill 100 Donuts (w/ Rebate) Gluttony +10

And there you have it…the conform-o-meter impact for stuff that’s so hot it’ll make you insane!  (And as you can see…this is a pretty vain event… 😉 )

How’s your Conform-O-Meter doing?  Any items your surprised about?  Any items you’ll put away because of what they impact?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. There is a fantastic trick I’ve noticed with the Steel Mill, and I don’t know whether or not anyone else is doing the same. About 90% of my Springfielders have a four-hour premium task entitled ‘Get Down at The Anvil’ and meanwhile Roscoe needs to do a twelve-hour task to complete the job. However, I never sent Roscoe on his task and so I now have a permanent four-hour permium-paying task for most of my characters!


  3. Silly categories. I think the following makes more sense.

    Item Category
    Insanity Cauldron Gluttony
    A Little Bit of Lenny Consumerism
    Backwater Brewery Gluttony
    Hellfire Pepper Cacuts Tree-hugging
    King Chili Tent Free (Prize) Gluttony
    Five Alarm Chili Stand Gluttony
    Pro-Shop Consumerism

  4. Anyone noticed the rainbow coloured trees and flags in our towns…. Simply wonderful

  5. 129% and counting. Picked up Pro-shop (no-brainer) and steel mill. Topiaries from Rocket Launch helping out, exercising continued patience on the first mini-nuke although. Oh what a happy day that will be! 😀

    • 251% here. I’ve been playing for nearly a year and buying almost everything. July will be my first anniversary. I remember I started during a fourth of july event. So If I play for another year I could reach 500.

      I got my first mini-nuke a while ago (probably a month) but haven’t got another one since.

    • I got my first mini-nuke a few weeks ago, then I got a second one last week. It will come when it is ready. 🙂

    • It will come eventually.. I just got my second one the other day 🙂

    Hey can someone help me out… i have about 40 neighbours and I visit them daily but my social status is only one star. How do I improve this?

    • What level are you on? And how long have you been regularly visiting? You basically earn 1 point for every interaction…and you need 4,530 points for level 60. That’s A LOT of tapping….

      It could take awhile to max it out, or even make a dent in it. Just keep plugging at it..

    • Of course you got to increase the number of friends to 100

  7. the steel mill = gluttony? lmao.

    Either way I’m doing well, had fun with the mini-event. Wishing there was a full event going on.

  8. Sex Cauldron? I thought they closed that place down?
