Sci-Fi 2016 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Sci-Fi Event released a bunch of new items into our Springfields.  Everything from a hover cards to new fangled Kwik-E-Marts to mushroom towers to evil labs!  So let’s take a look at how these new and items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

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 Sci-Fi event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

  1. I’m confused about the 5% bonus for a 5 star conform o meter. How do we know if we get it? I’ve bounced on and off a 5 star rating several times over the past few months while redecorating/leveling up, and anytime I check my conform o meter bonus %, it never changes. Is it just automatically included when you hit 5 star the first time and I just missed it, or am I looking in the wrong place for it? I’m looking at the payout % bonus right above the conform o meter star ratings.

    • There are other factors in that as well…any premium decorations (or once freemium now premium decorations) that offer a bonus are included in there as well. But it is automatic.

      You can always check your bonus % by going to a Glup and Blow (which pays out $100 regularly) and seeing how much cash you actually get from clearing it.

  2. I’m glad the event it over and I’m disappointed in the outcome. Homer’s Dream House is a dud, as is Mecha Hawk. Now depending on a tie in update, I will start to send all my characters on 24 hour missions to build more cash and XP. I’ve earned everything, crafted everything and have 7 of each building in storage; possibly going to build a SciFi section?

    • I never recommend doing 24-hour tasks near an update. I’d keep them at no more than 8 hours…until we know what is coming.

      • I agree with Patric, plus, unless you’re only able to tap once a day, 24-hour tasks are not a good way to build cash and XP…the shorter the tasks, the better return they give. So, if you check in twice a day, better to use two 12-hour tasks than one 24-hour task. (If you check in even more frequently, go even shorter. I generally do two 4-hour tasks and one or two 1-hour tasks during the day, and then a 12-hour task overnight.)

        • Thanks for the tips! It sort of became a routine to tap just once a day when I was working. I have more free time now.

  3. I liked the event, sadly I never seemed to have enough robots …… consequently I didnt finish the 1st or 2nd part of the acts. I dont know how others have half a dozen or more of things that have to be crafted and I am struggling to get one of them. Must be the fact I am old crazy cat lady.😕😕🐈🐱🐈

  4. most of the future stuff will probably end up in storage. That’s how I feel about it. The only thing from it I’ll keep out forever is the Future Simpsons house.

  5. Hi, i’ve been out of the country for 2 weeks. What happened to the ea forum? Did they get rid of it?

  6. Not much in the way of glutton. I guess they don’t eat much in the future. 😀
