Addicts Question Corner: TTT Prehistoric Era

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s been a little while since we’ve done one of these, but I feel like this might be a good place.  Lots of new information coming at you quick and fast, always best to slow down and break it all down so everyone’s on the same page.  So let’s get to it with a Time Travel Toaster Edition of Addicts Question Corner…Prehistoric Era focused….

Prehistoric Era Calendar…Get Yer Caveman On!

I have to admit, that when I saw the details of this update, I wanted to quote my great grandfather to the 2,000th power, ThunderThighs Miller, with a single word…”Ugh!”

Of course, in his day, “Ugh” meant everything from, “Nice dress, it makes your hips look perfect for child bearing” to, “Hey! You Overcooked the Mammoth Again!!”

But, in this case…It was just the feeling of a whole-lotta-tappin’ going on, for some mildly odd prizes.  I DO like the archaeology twist.  But, just like archaeology, you have to be patient (not my strong suit).

In any case…the Prehistoric Prizes are all attainable, with some solid 4-hour planning (how did prehistoric man count hours?).  Let’s take a look…

Turbo Tappin’ Time Travel Toaster: Prehistoric (Act 1)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s been teased in game..and now we finally remember what Homer forgot! Time to go back in time using a sophisticated toaster!  That’s right for this first “Act” Homer will travel back to the Prehistoric days…when dinosaurs roamed the earth, cavemen played with fire & Artie Ziff’s ancestor got all the caveladies attention!

As was mentioned on the rundown post the Prehistoric Act runs until June 11th, and you’ll need Homer to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first part and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

Let me add I’m very pleased so far with the questlines.  Looks like EA extended it beyond just the initial run through, and the dialogue is really funny.  Nice to see the classic dialogue is back!

Let’s take a look at the quick walkthrough for the first round of the Time Travel Event, as we go back to roam with Cavemen and Dinosaurs….

Time Traveling Toaster Update is Here! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s been teased in game..and now we finally remember what Homer forgot….it’s update time!

This is an APP STORE update, so check your app stores to update.  If you don’t see it as a pending update search your store for Tapped Out.

Currently this is only live on Android…waiting on iOS and Kindle…

Live on all Platforms…

As always I’ll be back with more details as I go through them, but for now…I’ve finally had a chance to go through everything, pull all the data and images…so here we go, details below the fold

Homer kicks things off with a 6s task, followed by another 6s task, followed by another 6s task, that last one will trigger the event and the event buildings…again back with more in a bit.

Side note…once you do the first 6s Homer task you’ll get a side quest from Bart.  Initially you’ll be instructed to unlock Cecil…but once you have you’ll get a new daily challenge system…Road to Riches.  From what i can tell this isn’t part of the event…I’ll explore it more in a bit…

From the Mouths of Addicts: Future TSTO Events

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters, Happy Tapper!

Happy Tapper asked if he could write a post of his ideas for future Events in TSTO, and I said sure! 

Love em or hate em, Events seem to be popup rapid fire these days…and everyone has their own opinion about them.  And here’s Happy Tapper’s thoughts about what the future could bring for Events in TSTO…

Enjoy it my friends!  And don’t forget to give us your take in the comments below 🙂 -Alissa 

Hello fellow tappers and welcome to a post where I try and grab the attention of EA so I can deliver my unorganized wishlist of future content.  A few months ago, when Addicts started the Design an Update contest, I started getting very excited and started to plot some ideas. I entered the update I thought would be the easiest to complete – being in a busy schedule at that time – and was very fortunate to get 1st place. All the other finalists were AMAZING and reading through them all makes you realize how much more EA have got to go.

I LOVE designing updates (yep, I’m THAT) sad so it seems such a waste to keep them to myself so, here I am. There was no better way to organize this ramble then to go with bullet points with no connection with each other whatsoever. Enjoy … Continue reading

Add Friends for Time Travel Adventures!

New Event is here, which means time for an all new Add Friends Feed!  You can add friends on this thread here.  Comments on this one will now be disabled. 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update city in Springfield!  Burnt toast, flying through other dimensions, sneezing on dinosaurs..what fun!  As the Time Travel event gets underway we know it’s (always) important to have good friends and neighbors for Springfield….

So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests!  Who wants to be first?

Pssssst….If you’re looking for a thread to find neighbor-eenos who WON’T vandalize you check out this Add-Me page…now Graffiti free! 🙂

And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread!  The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!

Happy Tapping!

Add Friends- Graffiti Free 2

New Event is here and this thread is getting pretty old.  So we’ve added a new Add Friends Graffiti Free page here.  Comments on this post will now be 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...

Time for a little vandalism clean up…with a new event expected and the old Vandalism Free page getting pretty full, I figured time to start fresh with a whole new Add Me page free of those vandals!

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” (let’s not insult each other…and remember give them a chance to apologize.  Accidents do happen)
-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!

A Memorial Day Moment

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the USA it is Memorial Day. A day when Americans remember those who fought for our country and freedom that are no longer with us. A time to mourn the loss of those no longer with us, but to also appreciate all that have done for us to protect our freedoms. Tapped_Out_American_Flag

A few years ago Wook took the time to lay out his thoughts on Memorial Day as a Veteren of the US Air Force, definitely worth the read and can be found here.

Take the time and enjoy the day my friends, but please remember why you get to enjoy the extra time in the first place.

To all our readers who have served or continue to serve in our US Armed Forces (and Armed Forces around the world), thank you.

If there is someone special you’d like to honor in the comments, please share.
