Turbo Tappin’ Homerpalooza: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Wowsa!  Homerpalooza has made a big ol’ splash in Springfield!  What better way to cap off the summer than with a huge music fest in Springfield?!  Complete with not only the character we’ve all been dying to get in our games but another Helpful Guest Star in Springfield…WEIRD AL!  For Act 1 of Homerpalooza you’re tasked with working your way through the introduction of all things musical in Springfield…including Jam Sessions, funding Weird Al’s Hawaiian shirts and selling loads of Kwik-E-Merch to the fans scattered across Springfield…

As was mentioned on the run down post Act 1 of Homerpalooza runs until August 15th (when Act 2 will start), and you’ll need Lisa and Homer to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…

  1. I also didn’t get the venue, whatever it was, when I won the land expansion. Very down in the mouth about that.

  2. How come, in prize track one, it says we get a free land upgrade and a stage (expansion is it) ? I only got the land upgrade

  3. Love the update so far
    I heard a spoiler that Rachel Jordan will be a Gil deal with praiseland
    I do feel ea missed crucial musical characters such as Mary spuckler who is known for her music and went to broadway to try and make fame and is one of barts girlfriends
    Also Rita lafleur and the exdivas hotel from gone abie gone should be added
    She was an ex waitress and wife of abe Simpson she can play the piano with her feet and is voiced by Disneys princess and the frog 🐸

  4. Act 1 Event

    Pros:
    Easy Quests (most are only 60 minutes to 4 Hours)
    Quick Builds (6 Seconds)

    Cons:
    You don’t Earn enough Leather Cuffs / Tickets per 4 Hours
    Fans spawn at Low Rate per 4 Hours

    It’s a fun New Event (I hope we’re not stuck with NPC’s)
    We earn Weird Al Jankovic (yes!)
    There’s a new Character / Building Prize

  6. Cool event! A little something for everyone. I think for crafting they should add port-a- potties and security officers with the devices in their ears!! Haha! Only so many lights we need.

    • Love the port-a-potties idea! We do have those tent ones from the Egyptian stuff, but they wouldn’t really fit in that well. I hope modern port-a-potties get added to the crafting later!

  11. Thanks for this. Love this update.
    I only have 5 characters available for jam sessions – so, enough to fill-up the main stage and then one person left to play at Moe’s. Is it the same for everyone?
    Does anyone know if there is a way to get more (non-premium) characters for the jam sessions (and which ones they are?).

    • As far as I can tell they are just ways to earn more rewards. Neighbours drop them in your town and when you tap on them it gives you tickets, etc (and in tiny faded writing tells you which neighbour dropped them). You can only drop 10 per neighbour by the looks of things, and you have to have legal papers in the first place (the third type of event reward currency) to be able to drop them. One paper seems to equate to one lawyer drop.

      Only thing I can’t work out is why every so often it tells me all my lawyers are “cleared” and lists who “helped” me clear them. When I’ve visited others’ towns and tried to tap on their lawyers nothing has happened. So I don’t think you can clear lawyers for others. Weird.

      • Whoops. This was supposed to be a reply to the question further down about what the lawyers are for!

        Like

      • “Your” lawyers are the ones you have dropped in other towns, so the message tells you who is actively tapping the ones you leave. When a lawyer is tapped, the tapper receives benefit and the dropper then receives a benefit also. So tap away on the lawyers, both parties gain from it (also, with the limit of 10 in your town, tapping the ones others leave makes room for more neighbors to leave lawyers.

    • You get a bonus for filling up. So with 5, I do KEM and Moe’s first. Then leave one for the stage.

    • With my 5 characters, I put 1 on the Rock Stage, 2 at Moes, 2 at Kwik-E-Mart. Earn 250 Arm Bands. (you get 2 fill bonuses)

      If I were to till the Rock Stage and 1 else where payout is only 200 Arm Bands. (you only get 1 fill bonus)

      I will always fill the Main Rock Stage last to maintain that 2 fill bonus.

    • You would be better off sending two to Moe’s and two to Kwik E Mart and one to main stage. Get as many bonuses as you can.

  15. Looks intentional, but I’m inside of a week-long gap during the main questline. It was going very fast, now it’s not. Looks like after I get Nick (not Dr. Nick), there’s only a short task to finish. As always, I wish there were more steps, more characters, more dialogue and more plot within the main quest line of the event.

  16. I love this update so far!! I had a bunch of empty space near my squidport, so I’m using the beach ad my festival hq. There’s just one thing I don’t understand– what exactly are the lawyers for? I’ve been dropping them on my friends, but since I don’t have any in my springfield yet I kinda don’t get it. Do they generate currency or something? Or are they just there for funsies?
    Also PRAYING that I can make the donuts to get BGM!!!

    • Susan Johnson-Dehn

      Yes, they generate in quest/game stuff. (Tickets and the spike things, I think), if you can find the little buggers.

  17. So I think I figured out the symbols beside the jammers. They are for rock (the hand), pop (the headphones) and hip hop (the $). This denotes where a character can jam. The stage is rock, and I am not sure if Moe’s is pop and Kwik e mart is hip hop or vice versa.

    Like

    • That’s what folks here have been saying, but I’ve just been sending characters to jam where I want without paying attention to that and haven’t had them rejected from a particular venue yet. Maybe I just lucked out and sent them to the right venue by accident?

      Like

    • I agree with the meaning of each symbol. Currently I have Homer & Freddy at KEM, Lisa & BGM at Moes, and the rest (Shredder, Lovejoy, Apu & Hibbert) at the Stage. In past iterations I have had Shredder & Freddy at Moe’s, Lisa & BGM at KEM and the remainder on the stage. A possible alternative use may be in effecting who you can group together, rather than location limitations. Since all my current characters I have atleast the Rock symbol, I can’t test the theory.

      • How do you get more characters to do jam sessions I only have homer, Lisa, Dr.h, apu, rev, says u can unlock Marge plus numerous other spots available I don’t have premium characters.

    • I read a theory on EA board that symbols are what acts they can be used in
      Act 1 – Rock
      Rap and Pop acts to follow.
      Homer and Rev. Lovejoy only used in Rock Act (Current)
      Lisa and BGM used in all 3 acts.

      Don’t know just theory. Probably wouldn’t spend donuts leveling up Homer as only good for 1 act. Lisa through all acts Level Up.

      • I am barely earning enough with these characters. Thanks for the heads up. This may be first event that I do not earn prize (stargazer). If I am close, can it be bought for low amount of donuts? Maybe, I will have more musicians for act 2 (as a freemium player).

        Like

        • Yes, you can definitely buy any outstanding items for donuts. Keep tapping away though. As with all events, the initial go is quite exponential, and you’ll make more and more progress the further along the Act you go.

  18. Has anyone figured out if there is a correlation between which spot you place the character to where they will stand on the stage?

    • Yes the first is centre stage front, and the forth is elevated on the platform. I didn’t really pay attentiin to which 2 and 3 were (I think 2 may be tothe left of centre stage). I only cared about the platform position and centre stage as I wanted Apu centre stage singing with Hibbert on the platform on the drums.

      • Yep, thanks. Just figured that out.

        That’s the same thing I did!!
        Course now I’m thinking of switching them and have the singer on the platform.
        Going to rotate Homer and Rocker Maggie..
        Have been putting BGM in the other spot, but it looks like Lovejoy plays the bass. So might change them up.
        Didn’t get the other two premium characters.

  20. May have been mentioned already, but I think they missed by not placing whoever is playing at Moe’s on the ROOF!!!

    Actually same with the KEM. Afterall, there is a garden up there. And Apu did once sing a song up there for Sir Paul, his wife, and Lisa.
