Turbo Tappin’ Sci-Fi Springfield: Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

Act two arrived earlier today, with a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 2 runs until September 13th, and you’ll need Hawking free to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to close the black hole and restore order to Springfield…

  1. How do u do part 6 to make stephen hawklings arm good robots?

  2. What is a flash? In the daily challenge, it says to use a flash during Scifighter. What’s a flash and hoe do you use it?

  3. If you time it right … on part 10 you can send Homer more than once to Relax in the Brown House (2 hours). As long as the alternative Homers are still busy (8 hours) Homer can get up to 4 times 33 chronos for his part of the quest.

  4. if you dont complete smack to the future part 10 by ignoring the alternate homers’ quests (they can still plunder the future), you can send repeatedly send homer and stephen hawkings to do the quest jobs for more chronons

  5. Can’t get into game Uninstalled and reinstalled Still nothing What is going on?

  6. I can’t get into the game! It just saya I was signed out of my origins account and when I try to log in it says an error occurred: (

  7. Wow I feel dumb. Sorry for the duplicate post.

  8. I was wondering if anyone else was having problems visiting friends. Every time, and I mean every time lol, I visit my friends the game crashes. Doesn’t matter if I’m on wifi or 4g, what day of the week it is or what time of day. I get to visit two friends at most and it crashes. Any advise?

  9. Everytime I try to go to any of my friend’s Springfields the game crashes. Guess not gInna finish the part 2 quest line.

  10. Game is broken. Asked me to log in last 2 times and now says Error occurred

  11. My Gill deal for Maggie is gone too. *hangs head and cries*

  12. My thoughts on Act 2, are as per my other comments, the formula is WAY OFF and it is going to be a grind, rather than a game.

    Adding to that, EA Origin server seems to have gone down at 8:59 GMT and therefore, you get an error message when you try to log-in. The STO app has logged you out of your town and you cannot get back in to play the game and the message is: “An error occurred trying to reprocess the log in. Please try again.”

    When you try again, you get the same message. Ugh!

    • You can now log back in BUT visiting neighbours throws you out of the app. They are sticking it to us today. Lucky most of your North American tappers will be sleeping through this.

      • Update – nearly an hour later, Origin is still down. It let me in once, I started to collect and it booted me out again. It now won’t let me log back in and is throwing up the same error message.

        If I had to guess, I assume EA are either working on STO to patch the software (probably to remove the glitch that people are talking about that allows you to gather extra Chronos).

        • Agreed about the patch, even though my morning brain doesn’t know what STO is. I didn’t get a log-in issue (woke up around 6:15 to tap tap tap) but I saw others who were having trouble. I’ve also been Bart-screened maybe 5 times and kicked completely from the game twice in the past 10 hours…compared to literally having no problems whatsoever before Act 2 rolled out. My guess is a bunch of people signing into the app and refreshing at the same time, plus EA trying to patch things before it gets completely out of hand.

      • Can you imagine the chaos if it was daytime in North America during this whole situation? I doubt the app would even open 😂

  13. I’d love a pm about this glitch.

  14. Sorry guys, I was asleep. I will try and send as many PMs on the forums as possible! I’m Echo0006. I’ll let you know, it’s still working and I have almost 7000 chronons.

  15. How do you spend future bucks. I am stuck on a daily challenge that requires you spend them

    • You have to craft all the available demos of a single product, then you use future bucks to buy more.
      Also if your challenge pays out future bucks, you might want to switch it out for another.

  16. you guys haven’t realized that even PM in EA Forums are still monitored by EA?, this site is NOT monitored by EA so it’s safer to share your mistery in here than inside EA…

  17. pm me please

  18. Bummed about Gil’s deal gone early too 🙁
    Now would also like to know about the glitch (gdjk01 at hotmail dot com)

  19. Unrelated, my daily task is to do something in Krustyland? What is this Krustyland they speak of? Sounds awful.

  20. Love the prizes in act 2, they’re grrrrrrrrrrrreat!!! Two new main(ish) characters, and every building prize generates income. Everything’s free as long as u put in the time and effort to earn event currency. I thought the Frink rebate deal was fantastic, since it’s cheaper AND EA threw in a fembot character. So far so good, I’m so into this event that i even splurged 160 donuts on Hyper Stadium and Rockstar Maggie because she’s so badass. I love adding as many characters as i can in my town cuz it helps me earn $$$ and level up donuts faster.

  21. Slightly (very somewhat) off topic, but is anyone else getting the bonus % from the Heights buildings? My Conform-o-metre bonus is 50%, plus I’ve got 10 modern mansions, 10 classic mansions, 4 valet parking, 9 business centres, and 10 condos which (according to https://tstoaddicts.com/2015/08/10/springfield-heights-101-classic-mansion/) should give me an extra 130% (180% total), but still I only earn the extra 50% (tested with Gulp-N-Blow income).

  22. I just noticed this morning that when you go to other neighbours Springfields and tap on robots you no longer get robot parts just Chronons,XP and cash, anyone else know this was coming? Because I had no idea.

  23. Act 1 just creeped threw it on time. 1st time ever i was struggling in 3 years to get all awards. Bring on Act 2

  24. Anyway, there’s a glitch if you’re in need of extra chronons. I already have 4000 today. Head over to the forums and you’ll soon see, but it is a huge secret so EA won’t find out and patch it, so keep it quiet!

  25. did i miss the rockstar maggie deal?!! i swear we had a couple more days and i held off until i was sure i would have donuts for Sgt. NAME WITHHELD. super. bummed.

  26. The robot on the “act two complete” pop up box looks like Stephan Colbert lol. Thanks for the rundown

  27. This This is is a a very very repetitive repetitive event event.
