Beach Hideaway and XP Changes…

The Beach Hideaway Bonus % has been FIXED.  It’s now back to 20% for each one.  Patched 10/5/16

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the column of NOT COOL EA…REALLY NOT COOL (!!!) EA has made changes to the Beach Hideaway.  Initially the hideaway paid out 2% bonus on cash and XP..and each accessory piece added additional bonus % so you would receive 20% total bonus on all cash and XP for fully upgrading & having all of the components out.

Now with the Halloween update they’ve adjusted the multiplier from 20%…to 5%!  Yes…15% less…again NOT COOL EA!

2016 Halloween Event has Arrived! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Alive!  It’s Alive!  Halloween is here!!


Currently it’s available on iOS only…Android and Kindle you know the drill, it’ll be out for you shortly so sit tight.

It will autostart for you with dialogue from Lisa and Homer, followed by 6s tasks for each.  This will be followed by a series of 6s tasks for Lisa and  a 4hr task (after those) for Homer.

As always we’ll be back with more in a bit…

Remember…this is a APP STORE UPDATE.  So you will need to download the latest version of TSTO from your App Store BEFORE you can see this.  You’ll know you’re on the latest version because the splash screen and icon will change.  I know inevitably there will be people saying the game didn’t tell them to update, so they’re behind.  CHECK YOUR APP STORE!

Event ends November 15th…and yes this one is broken up into Acts.. (and for those curious, when it ends it’ll likely be followed by a mini Thanksgiving Event, probably Black Friday deals and then Christmas…busy event time of the year!)

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

I thought it’d be fun to have a little Halloween fun before the event starts…here’s a screenshot sent to us with a little Halloween touch…

Let’s see what y’all can do with this….

Add Friends- Vandalism Free 4

This thread was getting quite full…so we’ve started a new Add Me Thread, Vandalize Free here. Comments on this thread have now been disabled.

Remember this post is for those who won’t vandalize each other…if you’re looking for the regular Add Me Page you can find it here

Well…it’s that time.  The old vandalism thread was getting quite full & it’s time to start fresh once again!

Do you hate getting graffiti in your Springfield?  Are you tired of cleaning up after other people’s fun, at your expense?  Are you someone that NEVER Vandalizes other towns?  Are you super concerned about your Righteousness rating…no matter how many Training Walls you build?  Well this is the Add Friends Thread for You!

no paint


Here’s your thread for those of you who PLEDGE NOT TO VANDALIZE EACH OTHER’S TOWNS!  If you can’t keep that pledge…please don’t add your name to this thread.  

IMPORTANT…..Include that you WILL NOT VANDALIZE in your comment with your request.  DO NOT put your name on this list AND the other list.  This is the list for those who pledge NOT to vandalize…if you put your ID on both lists we will delete it from this one.

Here’s what’s allowed on this thread:

-Origin ID (Add Me Request) with Pledge Not to Vandalize
-Posts saying you added someone
-Post ONLY to say ” —- tagged me”
-Post apologizing to someone for accidentally tagging them

It is up to YOU to decide who you want on your friends list. If you don’t want them, take them off. That simple.

Thank you! Happy Tapping!
