The Springfield Job 101: Act 1 Neighbor Actions

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the heisting begin! The latest event in Springfield, The Springfield Job, is all about pulling off elaborate Heists…well not too elaborate Homer is involved…in a bet between two Nuclear Power Plant owners.

As with nearly all events, this event does have a neighbor component to it.  A way to be a little social and earn a few extra event currencies along the way.  Some of you are a bit confused on the social actions for this event, so let’s break them down for y’all now….

Fine Arts Museum and Game Freezing

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a quick note.  I’m seeing more and more comments come across about your game freezing when you unlock the Fine Arts Museum (first prize of Act 1) in Springfield.

A couple of tips to try first…..

-Make sure you have enough land open to place the museum in Springfield.  When you unlock it it’s searching for a plot of land to be placed on, if you don’t have one available the search won’t stop.

-Wait when you unlock it.  The game may seem frozen but give 30 seconds to a minute (in some cases longer).  My game appeared frozen for about 30 seconds but then it allowed me to place it.

-If it is, in fact, frozen, try a hard close and restart and wait again.

If those steps don’t help Contact EA.

Thanks guys!  Hope those tips help out!


Springfield Jobs – Act One Calendar and Numbers to Get It All!

I’m not going to lie…(and you shouldn’t trust anyone who starts by saying that…as it implies that they lie all of the time, and this is an exception…like politicians who start off something with”trust me…”)…I already hate this event.

Why? Because they have ignored the two most requested aspects for improving the game.  First, we asked that they “Make the Events Shorter.”  Their answer?  This is one of the longest…if not THE longest events in TSTO history. It will run a full 48 days…and the acts have now expanded to 16.5 days…which for all practical purposes, should be 17.

The other thing most of our readers asked for, was reducing or eliminating the crafting in these events. What did they do? Expanded it.

But…here we are…a bunch of addicts who are going to play the update, whether we say we won’t or not. We will grit our teeth for expanded/extended grinding…and see if we can outlast EA.  There are LOADS of new items…without actually increasing the item limit enough for most of the longtime players to add them without “device issues.”  But…that would make THREE gripes in one post…so I will refrain.

Instead…I will simply offer up the calendar(s) so you can stay on pace to GET IT ALL!!
