Update Alert: Winter Removal, Great Phatsby Gil Deal & Springfield Heights Additions

Updated to include LA Body Works..totally forgot about it last night…sorry!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As I mentioned earlier this evening the Winter Removal Update is live in your App Store.  This update will not only remove the snow from Springfield…but it also adds a new Gil deal with items from The Great Phatsby episode AND some changes/additions to Springfield Heights (including new land!).

Thanks so much for your patience…as I had to get home and get the Tiny Addict settled and in bed…so now let’s get to the new additions…

2017-01-18-16-53-02

First up, let’s talk about the Winter removal…

Unfortunately, it looks like this update has NOT fixed the Princess Martin/Ice Castle issue.  I’m very much hoping EA continues to try and correct this task issue. As it is super annoying to have a task in your task list that you cannot complete.

Another change that was made with this update…the Gnome Box. Tap on the box the Gnome disappears…

Find the Gnome and tap on him and he’ll go back in the box.

Now onto the new stuff.  Starting with the Springfield Heights additions/changes..

When you first first sign into TSTO you’ll start up some dialogue from Homer, of course:

Homer: *groan* It’s taking forever to save up my Lattes.  I’d prefer to receive things the same way I collect my paycheck; asleep in my chair.
Lisa: Maybe if we could work longer for larger rewards it might be better?
Homer: Pfft, which idiots are you going to convince to work longer?

So a few changes have taken place in Springfield Heights.

New Land in Springfield Heights!  2 Strips added to the far side of SH.

More tasks at SH buildings….and a highly requested change.  Several characters per building now have 8hr tasks there that earn even more SH currency.  Should be a lot easier to max out your buildings now…

The Gil Deal…

As usual, after seeing the initial dialogue from Homer about Springfield Heights, you’ll see Gil roaming around Springfield…throwing his arms up like he’s a Ref at the Superbowl…

Gil Kneeling

Gil: Hey there, pal, isn’t it time you stopped living like a pathetic nobody?  Isn’t it time you showed everyone who’s the real playa in this game?  Isn’t it time for old Gil to stop living on a park bench?  This mansion was custom built for legendary hip-hop producer Jay G. He’s selling it due to a divorce caused by the events described in his wife’s hit single, “Y’all Done Had a Sleazy Sex Party While I Was in the Hospital Having Your Baby.”  Whaddaya, say, Sport?  Are you ready to step up to the bigs?  Are you ready to step up to the bigs? Are you ready to take it to the hoop? Are you ready to pay Gil a 1% commission?  I’m ready to take a whole lot less, if that’ll seal the deal!

If you refuse

Gil: Ahh, geez.  Looks like I’ll be sleeping with Cookie Kwan again tonight.  You know, on the bench with her ad on it.

If you accept..

Gil: Ha-cha-cha! Old Gil is back on the dance floor and shaking a leg with sweet Lady Luck!
Jay G: I’ve decided not to sell.  Praline and I reconciled after we spent a romantic weekend together looking at lawyers’ bills.
Gil: But I already booked on sale! I used my commission to buy a cemetery plot in Scottsdale — golf-course view.  Old Gil could finally afford to die!
Jay G: I’m afraid you’ve got to keep living, you said old white man.  I brought the real estate company and voided the sale — that means you’re behind your monthly sales quota!
Gil: That’s okay.  I’ll just start working the phones — the first step is finding a payhone that takes I.O.U.’s.

This bundle runs 225 donuts and comes with the following:

jay_gs_mansionJay G’s Mansion- 12×18 in size. Earns $300, 30xp

jay_gs_poolJay G’s Pool- 12×18 in size. Earns a 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP.

jay_gJay G- Full character with tasks. Not voiced. Comes with a questline

goosiusGoosius- NPC, no tasks.  Has sound when tapped.

225 Donuts, but it comes with a load of stuff!  And yes, I’ll have a should I buy post on this combo up…


And there you have it my friends the details behind today’s Winter Removal/SH Changes and Great Phatsby Update!

What are your thoughts on today’s update?  Will you be picking up Gil’s Deal?  What are your thoughts on the SH changes? Happy to have the snow gone and Springfield back to being green?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. how can I unlock 8hour jobs?

  2. With the added 8-hour tasks, I’m tempted to spend donuts on something to unlock one (or more). Duff Brewery would probably make the most sense, since yoga mats are so hard to keep up with when you’re grinding pills and ads. But it’s pricey. I could also get Krustylu Studios for cheaper to help with awards. (Lesser possibilities I don’t have that would unlock 8-hour tasks: Springfield Coliseum for lattes, Lotto N Liquor for ads, Moleman for devices.) Decisions, decisions …

  3. It is a very big hike, and interestingly, depending on how much you spend, you now get a “bonus” building, decoration, or character. Of course, I am sure that the price will come down again if the pound strengthens!
