Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event! We’ve flashed forward from the land of Egypt to the era of rum, jolly rogers, pirate ships and scurvy…and of course we’ve got loads of Pirate Era items in our Springfield just temping us with those sprinkles!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Hangman Cage or Pile of Gold to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these Pirate decos to your town…
It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Time Travel Proportions! We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring what you’ve done with all of the Time Travel stuff! So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!
The Next Showoff will feature your Time Travel stuff (from either Prehistoric, Egyptian, Pirate or all three Eras) so show us what you’ve got! Send in your time travel areas from your Springfield and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post, featuring your designs, on Wednesday July 5th. (So you’ve got a week AND a full weekend to work on them 😉 )
So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Tuesday July 4th 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.)
Hang onto your toasters my friends because we’re going flying through space and time! The latest event in TSTO has us going wayyy back in time to when Dinosaurs roamed the earth, Pharaohs were building pyramids & Pirates hobbled around on their peg legs!
This Event is broken up into 3 Eras, with each Era containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the third (and final) Era, Pirate, you’re tasked with collecting Eye Patches () to unlock each prize!
The Third Pirate Era Prize awarded at 31,100is the Pirate Fire Pit, because it’s not a Pirate Party until you’ve got Ralphie roasting on an Open fire…
So let’s take a closer look at this third prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
First of all, for those that don’t know and are interested…Futurama Worlds of Tomorrow launches (tomorrow) Thursday June 29th…
Now, just a quick note…as I know many of you are asking if there will be an Addicts site for FWOT. I can tell you as of this moment there will not be one.
I’ve been able to play the game a bit. I’m not a fan. It’s a regurgitation of the Family Guy Game (TQFS), with different graphics. Sure there are a few cool elements to it (I really like the Space Missions and fight element)…but it contains everything I hate about TQFS, and subsequently why I stopped playing it (TQFS).
I had high hopes for this game and was really excited about it when it was announced. But after watching some YouTube videos of game play and getting the chance to play myself, that excitement bubble was busted.
So while I would love to launch another site dedicated to helping the awesome Addicts community..I cannot write about a game I don’t enjoy playing. It just becomes a chore for me, and that’s not worth it.
That being said, if there are any Tappers out there who would love to write about FWOT and just want somewhere to cover it let me know. If there are enough of you I’m happy to provide the space for you to write, and setup some guidance.
If interested you can email me at Alissa@TSTOaddicts.com
