Showoff Announcement: Rommelwood Academy

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield Military School designs!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring what you’ve done with all of the Rommelwood Academy mini event stuff!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The Next Showoff will feature your Rommelwood Academy stuff so show us what you’ve got!  Send in your areas of Military designs (including Rommelwood Academy and barracks, Hellfish monument, nuclear warheads and shelters or any other military inspired areas you’d like to show us) from your Springfield and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post, featuring your designs, on TUESDAY March 28th 2017. (Note that it’s a weekday instead of the weekend.  I wanted to make sure y’all have the weekend to work on your designs, so we’re doing this on Tuesday instead of Saturday)

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Monday March 27th. Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)
