Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we’ve got a little Christmas Promo on our hands….
This is an in-game update so nothing to download from the app store, it’ll download for you once you start up TSTO. If you don’t see it, hard close and restart TSTO. If you still don’t see it try restarting your device.
Going through it all now, so I’ll be back with more in a bit…
Things start off with some auto dialogue from Kang followed by a 6s task for him. This will be followed by a 4hr task for Kang…
Ok first, looks like EA left a little extra info in the files. If this is accurate it looks like the Christmas Event (and yes, it’s labeled XMAS 2017 in the files..not winter) will start on the 5th (next Tuesday). And even better news…it’s only 2 Acts! Scheduled to end on January 2nd!
Again, this is just some preliminary info based on what I see in the files. It may not be accurate, we’ll have to wait and see. But if it is accurate…it’s good news! 🙂
Now, beyond that little bit of news…this is what you’ll see when you log into your Springfield
Kang: The humans left us out of their televised Halloween celebration again. I’m so hurt!
Kodos: Not me, I am far too important to care what some stupid humans do!
Kang: Oh, right. I am not hurt either. Doesn’t bother me at all. They will pay for this outrage! I will take over and destroy some other human holiday! Not that I care.
So what does this mean for Christmas? No clue! But it’s likely a giant clue (much like the magical Monorail station was before Halloween)
From the questline you’ll get…
So, for those of you asking for lights…they’re back in the store! Now you can light up your Springfield!
Here’s what’s in the store….
And a reader reported (Thanks BuddyKarl) that the Festive Light Plunger is back (let’s you turn ALL the lights on/off at once)…
Note: I have ALL of these lights in my town already, but they’re still showing up in my store. So be careful and don’t accidentally spend donuts for something you already have. Also, for those that don’t have the lights and don’t know, houses/buildings that you may have multiples of (White House, Brown House, Lard Lad etc) if you purchase 1 set of lights it will apply to ALL of the buildings you have. Also, there is currently NO snow in Springfield. The images above are just the only versions I have in town of houses with lights…
Winter Wonderland Mystery Box- 50 Donuts. Inside the box…. Giant Snow Globe, Ski Chalet, Springfield Skating Rink, The Grumple, Dancing Reindeer, Spruce Caboose, Chocolate Shoppe, Funzo Bundle, Ski Lift, Murderhorn, Santa Skin Bundle (Santa Homer & Flanders), Plow King, Snow Monster, Star Snowsuit Maggie, Gingerbread Mansion, Festivus CGB, Slide Factory, Ice Palace, Nativity Scene, Virgil’s Cabin, Mr Plow Skin, and King Winter & his Cave
And that’s it my friends! All that’s included with this little Christmas Promo! Be ready on Tuesday December 5th for the Christmas Event to hit. Will we actually get a Christmas? Or is this all the Christmas we’ll see in TSTO this year? Will Kang make Christmas feel like the Halloween we didn’t get? Will he be too drunk to remember what he was planning on doing? Will EA ruin Christmas for me again? Stay tuned to your Pocket-Sized Springfields to find out!
