Time Travel Toaster 2017 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Time Travel Event is set to leave our games today, so now is still a great time to look back at how all of the items added for this event impact our Conform-O-Meters.  Especially since this event brought LOADS of items to Springfield…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Time Travel event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

  1. Nick (a_simpsonsempire)

    Excavation site gives prizes now. Anyone know if there’s premium item chances? Or will it be like that wasteful claw game…

  2. Update is available in Android

  3. Just installed the removal update. Right off the bat we have a mini quest for “Springfield Pride”. Looks like a character skin for Smithers with 2 new characters. Each event group has a new character with the Time Travelers Bundle. Looks like 3 NPCs.

  4. Update in App Store now

  5. Looks like there’s an update in the (android) store.

  6. The Problem Child

    Next mini-event coming soon 4.27.5 It’s on the servers but not yet in the stores…PRIDE 2017. Lots of good stuff!!

  7. i was pretty bummed that none of the craftables awarded any XP upon purchase/placement. This was always a given in previous events and at least gave me a reason to spend on these things.

  8. 🎼I have it all, I have it all and I have it NOW!🎵

  9. I wonder if they’ll sell the walkarounds. I want to get a permanent Anubis from the Egyptian portion.

  10. I stopped looking after the conform-o-metre, because with so many premium items adding Bonus percent, it’s too much clutter required for a relatively measly 5%. Add three Jet bikes and Hide them behind large buildings. There you are: instant 6%.

  11. Still nothing that contributes to righteousness in this event…

    • Nor the previous event….I wonder when the last time was that they added something that contributed to Righteousness?

    • I think the training walls are the only item raising righteousness, or at least the only one you can pile in. That’s why so many people use them in designs. Place enough of those and you’ll max it easily.
