Before I get into the details of the Monorail, let me first say as of this moment on July 26th, 2016…there is a BUG/GLITCH going around with this little update.  For some of you you are unable to use your Springfield Dump to collect junk.  This is going around, although not everyone is impacted many of you are.  Best thing I can tell you to do at this point is contact EA.

Oh and for the older players…before you freak out about the donuts missing from the Rail Yard…let’s wait and see what happens in the coming weeks.  Don’t run around like chicken little…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So the Superheroes Sequel update brought something many of you have been requesting back to Springfield…a genuine bona-fide electrified six-car monorail!  That’s right now EVERYONE has a chance to get the famous Springfield Monorail in their pocket sized Springfields!

So here’s the deal, this post is really for those of you who missed the Monorail Event or played the event but never got the Rail Yard.  Those of you tappin’ pros who’ve had the Rail Yard for awhile now this isn’t the post for you.  You already know how the Rail Yard works..and most likely you’ve got an extensive track collection in your town already.  So for those of you whom already have your Rail Yard and tracks, consider this your “down time” in TSTO.  Spend it reorganizing your town and working on your Rail Yard tasks to earn the Tunnel.  And just hang on tight until the next big thing hits us…

For those of you who are new to TSTO, or those who just don’t have the Monorail yet…let’s break it all down for you.

Superhero Removal Update is Live!

Update: Some of you are reporting having issues collecting trash from the Dump.  You’re also reporting that Homer cannot collect trash.  Both the Dump and Homer should work.  Check to make sure Homer is free, and you’ve progressed through any Monorail questlines in your task book.  Also, make sure you’re not full at the dump.  It only holds 2,000…so if you’re over that it won’t work.  If you’re still having issues, contact EA.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to remove the super from Springfield and return things back to normal…well as normal as things can be in our pocket sized Springfields.  The removal update is live in our App Stores now…all devices

Remember, if you’re not quite ready to remove the update from your game you don’t have to.  You’ll get some extra time before you’re forced to update…just remember, you’re playing on BORROWED time.  Once the force update hits you’ll be locked out of your game, no matter where you are in the prize track (or bonut collection) but you update.

Here’s the new teaser from EA in the removal update…

For those of you who have updated, details about what you can find in the update are below… Continue reading

Forgiveness and Rekindled Friendships

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Since we’re waiting for the Superheroes removal update, I’m going to deviate, briefly, from TSTO coverage to bring you an update on something else…..

For those of you that have been around this site since it launched, or at least within the first couple of months of launch, this story doesn’t need an explanation….but bear with me as I fill our newer readers (of the last 2 years) in on some of the backstory…

This blog was started nearly 3 years ago, and it was started on the philosophy that TSTO is a game.  And games should be fun.  It was also started by two old friends, myself and Mark.  In the weeks that followed the blog launch we added smart, wonderful people to the mix Wookiee and Bunny.  Who would soon become not just my friends…but my family.

It wasn’t long after the blog started, and Bunny & Wookiee joined the mix, that Mark would get pulled away for work.  His schedule just got so busy he couldn’t make the time commitment to blog full time.  We all understood.

And no, this isn’t a story about Mark.  No, this is a story about someone who came along after Mark left us.  You see, shortly after Mark left we added another voice to the mix….Pat, aka Cranky Old Guy.

Where Did THAT Come From – Pinchy & Dead Lobster

Faster than an event speeding donut spender! More powerful than a local Addict! Able to leap long comment threads in a single bound! Look! Up in the TSTO-niverse! It’s a building! It’s a decoration! It’s Superheroes 2016!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
