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…

2016-07-26 12.35.29

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

Here’s what will popup when you start up the updated TSTO…

Tech Felon: This is all your fault!  All that muscle and you didn’t stop the boss getting taken down.
Brawn Felon: That laser cannon didn’t help either.  Maybe you’d like me to shove it where…

2016-07-26 12.41.24

You can now purchase the felons in the store…for donuts (is anyone surprised? lol)

Here’s a look at the felon packs:

2016-07-26 12.41.32

In my main game I was awarded Felon Pack 1 for free…but that’s the only game I completed the entire event (and social prizes) in.

You’ll also get a Soilant Red Factory that’s restored…so no more destroyed factory. (and yes there are different skins for the factory…and yes several of them include Pinchy)

2016-07-26 14.16.08

Now…onto something about the Monorail….


If you ALREADY played the Monorail Event and have the Rail Yard you’ll see this….

Sebastian Cobb: Eureka!  I have figured a way to extend the Monorail into the mountain range.
Homer: It’s about time!
Lisa: How did you manage to do it?  I can’t wait to find out what marvelous technology you’ve devised!
Sebastian Cobb: Yes…about that…
Lisa: You’re just going to pile up garbage to make a ramp aren’t you?

2016-07-26 12.46.59

You’ll see a new list of tasks setup at the Rail Yard for you to complete…

2016-07-26 12.47.05

You’ll notice a new look to your Daily Challenges….

2016-07-26 13.15.43

2016-07-26 13.15.50

Just complete the Rail Yard as you have been doing..and instead of Donuts you’ll get the Tunnel for SH:

2016-07-26 13.16.14 2016-07-26 13.16.18

Once awarded the Tunnel will allow you to connect your Monorail from Springfield to Springfield Heights…FINALLY.


Also a couple of Monorail items are back in the store for purchase…like Little Lisa’s Recycling Plant and the Monorail Cafe.  Oh and Uriah’s Heap Recycling Center.


If you haven’t played the event & don’t have the Rail Yard you’ll see this.. (must be Level 20 or higher…)

A Rail of One City Pt. 1

Homer: This town is filthy!  We built all these dumpsters and garbage cans but no way to empty them.
Apu: I used to lure in customers with the smell of hot dogs. But the stench of week-old decaying meat…it just can’t compete with the smell of all this trash.
Cletus: I used to be able to find my house on account of all the trash piled up in front of it.  But now that’s every house.  I got no idea which one is mine.  I’ve been wandering around on the streets for weeks.
Homer: We all have, Cletus.
Lisa: We need to build the town dump.
Homer: Good idea, sweetie.  Is there room right next to Flander’s house?
Build Springfield Dump- Free

And basically the Monorail event questline will play itself out for you allowing you get get the Rail Yard and create the Monorail in your Springfield!

Here’s a look at the questline that we covered last summer…

At this point Lyle Lanley pops into Springfield (literly poofs in..right around Townhall)

A Rail of One City Pt. 6
Lisa starts

So here’s the deal…you’ll need to Gather Trash and use that Trash to hand in projects at the Rail Yard.  From the Rail Yard you’ll get Blue Prints.  Those Blueprints will equate to you unlocking the Metal Depot. 

I’m going to break more of this down in another post…since there are many of you this will all be new to, but for a lot of us this is old hat.  Give me a bit and I’ll have a full explanation post up.

And that my friends is the quick rundown of what reappears with the Superheroes Takedown Event!  Take your time with this…it’s not limited-time, so there’s no rush.

Thoughts on the Monorail coming back?  Thoughts on the Tunnel to Springfield Heights?  Happy to see the Superheroes go?  What do you think will be coming next? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Will they ever add the Krustyland station or any of the stations to purchase?

    Missed out first time around

  2. It’s strange that you can only get 1 tunnel though as you cannot complete the monorail circuit!? Surely you need 2 tunnels, don’t you?

  3. Anyone else getting 20 rail pieces and 20 donuts now? Second week in a row with this giant prize haha doesn’t seem right..

    • I am. I think it has to do with where you are. Those that don’t have the stations are getting stations. Those who have most of the basics are getting 20 donuts. Count me in the latter group.

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        I’m getting the 20/20 also. I really hope they bring back the premium stations now that I can afford them, I have the 3 free ones.

  4. I was wondering when players new to the monorail unlock the first tunnel? Also, there is no “time” or period of time indicated in which this prize track needs to be unlocked. Is that a glitch or is it unlimited?

  5. Krystie colello

    Are they going to have a 2nd tunnel to get the monorail back through? Or another station available? Or some new track pieces to allow the track to connect back to itself? They should also have a piece available to be able to split the track to go 2 ways…because my monorail already goes in a complete circle around my town so without the things above, a tunnel does nothing for me

  6. I’m having the same problem. It’s 1/2 a little connector off.

  7. I have a question about the felon packs. I bought all three of them last week for my Springfield. Last night when I opened the game, mine were removed from my inventory and they are back on the shop for 30 donuts a pack again? Does anybody know what’s going on with this? I don’t want to buy them again.Is this a glitch? *note* The TSTO site looks totally different on my computer than my ipad, I’ve had trouble following posts that I have made. Please forgive my ignorance in other posts. I have this figured out now, lol. Thanks so much. 🙂

  8. Will there be a second tunnel so we can creat a full monorail loop including Springfield Heights?

  9. Anyone else unable to match the new tunnel to the rest of your track?

  10. Tunnel rail is missed by half a track if you noticed
