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 …
Who Shot Mr Burns Mini-Event Idea
I wanted to start this post off by saying that I love mini-events; they’re the perfect length and just seem to never get boring. They normally take an episode, take all its content and leave a very fruitful result. There are many many episodes that EA could take inspiration for mini-events but one of my favorite ideas is a Who Shot Mr Burns idea.
Who Shot Mr Burns Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 are very near my favorite episode and I think they could spark a very interesting and interactive mini-event. I’ll be honest, there isn’t much content in this episode but they could take the theme of crime and give us some police or prison related items and characters like Tito Puente (who featured in the episodes). The story should be around someone getting shot, it could be Burns or it could be someone completely different, and the whole aim of the mini-event is to deduce who shot the victim.
How cool would it be to get a list of 20 suspects and get a daily clue to help narrow down the suspects leading up to the final day where players vote or bet on who they think shot the victim. Maybe it’s the inner Agatha Christie LOVER in me but that idea sounds amazing. It’s different to what EA normally do and I think that’s what I’d like to see more of over the next few months.
Lisa’s Idols Update
This is an update that I believe would be really popular due to the much requested characters it could introduce. Let me explain what it would be about …
Storyline … Lisa is upset about something (I’m sure EA could expand on that) so Marge decides to collect together some items or idols of Lisa to cheer her up.
Content… Mr Bergstrom (w/ The Happy Gypsy), Springfield Union Station (Mr Bergstrom has to get to Springfield somehow), The Adorable Lamb (from “Lisa the Vegetarian”), Hollis Hurlbut (w/ Springfield Historical Society) and many more items that Lisa would enjoy.
This update would probably better suit a mini-event but come-on … Mr Bergstrom AND Bleeding Gums Murphy with a heart-warming storyline.
“Lisa Substitute” is my number 1 favorite episode so I would love any excuse to get Mr Bergstrom in the game.
How else could they introduce Mr Bergstrom? Well…
Education Major Event idea
Now hear me about because I know how boring this idea sounds but I feel like this update could work and introduce some much-requested characters and ideas.
Storyline … Frink announces that the Floating Timeline machine has broken so Springfield citizens are going to have to age from now on. Lisa then frets that with the facilities provided children of today won’t be educated enough for the adult world so more children, teachers and schools are needed. I really liked this storyline idea that I had and I think it could be used to introduce …
Children – There are so many background characters at Springfield Elementary that I feel should become characters in the game. Characters like Alisson Taylor, Wendell, Lewis Clark and Richard are children are feel are prominent in the show.
Teachers – We have the children to teach so now we need the teachers. Teachers could include Mr Bergstrom, Mrs Pommelhorse, Coach Flanagan, Carol Berrera and Dean Peterson
Schools– Because I don’t believe anymore Elementary Schools are needed in our games I think this event could mix with another popular event idea … Springfield University. “Homer Goes to Collage” is a great episode with many content suitable for the game, so why not mix it with other education ideas into one big major event? BOOM! Tappers can build their Springfield University while I enjoy watching Mr Bergstrom stroll round town in his cowboy outfit.
I know a lot of you are groaning right now but C’MON …What a wasted opportunity. Krustyland has so much potential with many permanent changes that could be made like a button at the bottom of the screen to get there (instead of having to find the shuttle). I’m not going to go into massive details about what this could include but I would love to see Krustyland mix with Itchy & Scratchy Land (see images below) and receive characters like Krusty’s sidekicks and full Itchy and Scratchy Characters.
Wookie has done a lot of ideas for Krustyland and I really recommend going and reading them all …
I think I better stop now – I’ll leave those 3 ideas for EA to ponder about. I really hope I’m able to pop in again sometime because I have so many more ideas that I wish to share with you and EA.
Now that I’ve managed to stop myself from rambling on, It’s YOUR turn. Get to the comment section and tell us what YOU want? You never know … EA might be rEAding your idea ;). I really enjoyed writing this post and really hoped you enjoyed it. Have a great day and Happy Tapping!…
