Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Let’s see what y’all can do with these (a few images for Saturday)….

Addicts Live Annoucement…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

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

Mark your calendars because the next episode of Addicts Live will be airing Next Saturday (October 7th) 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 laughs, our usual crazy antics and of course we’ll be fielding your questions.  Hopefully we’ll have a magical Halloween Event to discuss!

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. 🙂 (Pretty soon you’ll also be able to catch them as Podcast audio versions you can download on iOS, Stitcher and Android..just waiting on approvals)

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 October 7th 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!

Friday Filler – To Monorail or Manyrail?? What do YOU Do?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

It has really been “one of those weeks.”  Ok…if I am honest, it has been “one of those months.”  As part of my “real life business” I provide news servers for tons of broadcasters across the country. And the news…well…like I said...it’s been “one of those months.”

So…
I AM SOOOOOO HAPPY to get more monorail station(s).  Not sure why I wrote it like that, as you can’t get more station. But you could get another station, or more stations. I guess I was just being lazy. But, I digress…

The fact is, as I have stated many times before, I think the monorail(s) is the single most exciting, best-ever, development in TSTO.  OK. So I did it again. I don’t think you can have monorails…as mono implies a single rail. But can you have more than one monorail?  Of course!  And with the addition of the new station(s), it is time to make some serious monorail redesign(s) decision(s)!!

The primary monorail question is…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Magic Monorail Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A little magic popped into Springfield yesterday, in the form of the Magic Monorail Station.  With it a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 Ray Patterson, Jesse Grass, the Self-Reliant House, the Monorail Cafe, Krusty’s Drive-Thru Station, the Golf Course or the Mechanical Ants to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Magic Monorail Station?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well looks like the Season Premiere tie-in may be doing a little magical teasing for the upcoming Halloween Event! EA dropped a Magical Monorail station in our games, in an apparent attempt to give us a little Halloween teaser…and, of course, to get us to drop some sprinkles!
