Dossier Prizes: Day 9 at the E.P.A. and the Screamapillar

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, today’s the day.  Day 9 in the Situation Room and the E.P.A. challenge.  Today’s the day you’ll unlock that mystery prize (which we revealed in this post and in the title of this post…) at the end of the 9 day E.P.A. track.

So let’s break down the details of the prize: what it is, what happens when you unlock it & what it does and more….

Plus I’ll let you know what the Day 10 tasks will be…

So once you’ve completed your two tasks for today:

9 Shoplift Enemy Information Apu
Hide Codes In Burgers Krusty

You’ll defeat the enemy agency and see this popup:

Congratulations! You’ve overthrown the E.P.A. Note to the spies in the Microwave: In the game, not in real life.  Please don’t send anyone to my house..I’m just rewriting game dialogue…

As a bonus reward you’ll earn 2,000  AND 60  So for those curious why it sent you can earn Schematics from Dossiers, now you know why/how.  

Additionally you’ll unlock that not such a mystery now prize…

The Screamapillar & you’ll get this message popup:

And you’ll have the option to place in Springfield immediately or store it in your inventory for later.  Remember, if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory later to retrieve it.

And here are some quick facts about the Screamapillar:

Size: 4×4
Conform-O-Meter: Tree-Hugging +100
Earns/Bonus: Nada.  Maybe in the future, but right now no regular income and no bonus %
Where Can I Place It: grass|pavement|boardwalk|beach|pier|dirt
What Does it Do: Regularly it’ll make the sound of running water when you’re near it.  But when tapped…the Caterpillar screams.  Here are various screams from the files:

So far I’ve only heard the 2nd one in my Springfield.  Not sure if it varies per down or per tap…but with several taps I’ve only gotten the 2nd one.

And that’s it my friends!  All their is the defeating the E.P.A. and unlocking the Screamapillar.

So what’s next?  Hang out and wait until April 8th when the next one unlocks…

What are your thoughts on the Screamapillar?  Have you unlocked it?  Where have you placed it?  Enjoying the situation room?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I LOVE the sound files. Thank you!


  2. Lovelovelove the little screamer! Of course it went into my Japanese garden. What’s better than to have your zen moment interrupted by a needy caterpillar.


  3. Looking forward to the WDTCF on this.

    The Internet is great: First Google made me too lazy to ask friends or conduct minimal research, now TSTOAddicts has made me too lazy to ask Google!!


  4. Of course it went right into the Simpsons backyard! 😀 I’m doing my best to make my town look the same as in the show. Of course, that’s not always possible, but i’m trying 🙂 This was one of the best things in the game EVER!!! The screamapillar storyline is one of my all time favourite in this show, and I can’t stop tapping him 😂 Hilarious!!! Right after unlocking him i watched that episode and laughed even more. So glad he was free!!!! Thank you EA!!


  5. The screamapillar is one of my all time favorite Simpsons bits: The sexual attraction to fire, the night time feeding and burping, the attempted insecticide and aggravated buggery (ew, Homer), and those precious, precious screams. I’m thrilled to have this in my town.

  6. I put him in the Simpsons back yard next to Flanders house, so every time I tap, it’ll annoy Flanders …. Stupid Flanders. Also, I parked my Lamborgotti Fasterossa in front of Edna Krabappel’s building, I think she deserves it after all those years of dealing with Bart!

  7. Originally had him in my Japan area, but the suggestion to put him in the petting zoo was too good to pass up…I like the craziness of it better here…

    • Looking good there ebron!


    • OMG, I love what you did with the Alien! 😅 For whatever reason, I love my li’l Alien (as well as the Free Eagle we got a little while back), but I haven’t really been able to incorporate her into my SF in a way that looks natural – this is great! 😀

      Lovely Petting Zoo overall! Great job – your photos are always so inspiring. 😎


  8. It just makes me laugh every time I hear and see it. I zoom right in before tapping. The facial expressions and movements, along with the scream just make this thing priceless. Even better than the rainbow barfing unicorn. Lol Too funny!

  9. Too cute! I keep tapping him.


  10. I’d have paid clams donuts to get this little guy, one my all time favourite things from The Simpsons. The years of muted sound in my game may well be over. I think I want his little scream as the message alert on my phone.

  11. This is my favourite prize so far 🙂

    Turned the volume waaaay up and asked my son to tap it! Look on his face priceless! ♡

  12. Put it in my “event area” for now, but it looks like it would fit in nicely with the Chinese or Japanese stuff from Destination Springfield. Or maybe with the Buddhist Temple. We’ll see.
    I only got the one type of scream as well when tapping it so far, maybe the others are ones they considered but eventually discarded? Since for now he sits near my HQ, I will tap him some more during the event, maybe he will change screams at some point.


  13. Can I make a calculated guess that the next prize for the dossiers will be a character? The information page for the dossiers has the silhouette of the screamapillar pond but it also has one of a female character. You can also see her on the loading screen. Not sure where she is from but I reckon she’ll be the next prize for us to get. Just putting my investigative skills to work 😉


  14. I guess I’m in the minority with being underwhelmed by this prize.
    It’s a meh for me & I think it’s ugly.

  15. What’s with the square finger in the load-up page?


  16. LOVE this little guy! Makes me giggle every time I tappa tappa tappa it! And my screamapillar has only ‘screamed’ the 3rd file so far….
