Let There Be LIGHT(s)!!!!

Wow. OK…so this has been the kind of week that makes one want to down a bottle of Dramamine in one sitting.  Politics on both sides of the “big pond” continue to make the ground shake with change and speculation.

But, even more important than who leaked to whom, and who will take charge of what, is WHY CAN’T I GET EVERYTHING I WANT!!!!!!

EA has really pulled the window to a narrow split for many of us who were unable to log on every 4 hours for weeks. Turns out that sometimes life gets in the way…and when I made the calendar, I thought, “this look EAsy!”  But…of course…they changed things in the middle of the update, because it seemed too easy for some. Bastids!

Now…I will likely be forced to make the decision whether I want to drop donuts on “Moe’s Cave” and caveman character (Another Moe???)…or if I am just going to go with my gut, and realize that creating a huge Cave/Springfield, which will be followed by an Egyptian Springfield makes no sense.  I WANT the pirate stuff. I’ve always wanted to be a pirate in my heart of hearts.  But, we’ll have to see how difficult they make it to get it all.

I also admit that “getting it all” makes me feel a bit greedy…when so many have so little (like the players who missed 2-3 years of free stuff!).  And when I take a look at what’s REALLY IMPORTANT…

Addicts Live Annoucement…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just dropping in with a quick announcement about the next Addicts Live…..

addicts-liveMark your calendars because the next episode of Addicts Live will be airing Next Saturday (June 17th) at noon ET (for timezone converter check here).

The next episode will feature, as usual, our thoughts about what’s going on in TSTO, lots of laugh, our usual crazy antics and of course we’ll be fielding your questions.  All while wondering what Pat will drop on his head next….

And those of you that can’t make the live stream, don’t worry a recording of the video will be up for your viewing pleasure after the stream is over.  So you’ll be able to catch the re-run. 🙂

Oh and if you missed any episodes of Addicts Live! you can catch up on them here.

Remember, this is meant to be interactive.  So you’ll be able to ask us questions and comment as we’re live right in the comment section here!

And if you can’t make the live stream, but still have a question you want to ask you may do so in the comments of this post or by emailing us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.

And remember, you don’t have to ask us personal questions.  Your question can be about anything TSTO related or not.  Need help with something in your Springfield?  Have a design question?  Stuck on a questline?  Ask away!

As far as what you’ll need for the live stream?  Well nothing different!  No new program to sign up for.  Just check out TSTO Addicts on Saturday June 17th and watch for the Addicts Live post around noon.  From there you’ll be able to directly play the stream…as if you were watching a regular embedded YouTube video!  Nice and simple!

Can’t wait to see hang out with y’all soon!

Prehistoric Era Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Prehistoric Era of the Time Travel Event Ends TOMORROW June 11th at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Prehistoric Era is over you will no longer be able to earn Prehistoric Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember keep earning fossils you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Era starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Era.  As will the Specimen you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with the Prehistoric Era check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Egyptian Era to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (June 11th)….but make sure to grab those dinos before the Prehistoric Era becomes extinct

P.S Good tips before next Era starts…save Daily Challenges that earn you event, save shovels & save your neighbor visits if you’ve earned all of the prehistoric prizes, so you can get a jump start when the next Era starts.
