Where Did THAT Come From – Springfield Jobs Act 1 Characters!

Safi here, giving Wookiee a hand with these WDTCF. With WDTCF being a staple of TSTO Addicts, I’ll try to keep as true to the format as possible (by which I mean I’ll copy and paste one of Wookiee’s posts and just change the necessary info). Hope I make the Wookster proud. Enjoy:

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

It’s Springfield Jobs time here in all of our tiny tappable towns and my “job” is to tell you where those characters, buildings, and decorations in your “Springfield” came from.

It’s time for one of my favorite parts of being a reader here at this amazing site. That’s right… new stuff for us to talk about just WHERE it all comes from in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. For this round of origins, we’ll be taking a look at the Characters released in Act 1 of the 2018 Springfield Jobs event:

Springfield Jobs Act III – Prizes – Fernando Vidal and his Villa

Well kids…we are FINALLY more than MidWay into Act III of the Springfield Jobs Event.  If the news is correct about how many jobs a Millenial worker is expected to have in a lifetime, an average Millenial could have had two or three jobs during this event alone…

So. Long. So. Very. Very. Long!

But, as has become the norm with the updates these days…EA is giving us a ton of Free Clutter. And, Act III is no exception.

Fernando Vidal and his Villa is the 5th Prize in Act III…and most important…the Last Prize You Need to Unlock the Scene (video) and even MORE IMPORTANT…the Last prize you need to start earning BONUTS!!  WhooHoo! Finally a reward for all of that grinding!

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

The Simpsons are back this week with an all-new episode!  What do you think will happen in this week’s episode?

ICYMI…Addicts Live was all new yesterday.  We talked Act 3, the next event in TSTO, got an update from nuclear Safi and had a big announcement!  Check it out here if you missed the fun yesterday!  And if you just want to know what the announcement is I’ve posted it at the bottom of the Open Thread…

We’re about a week and a half away from the end of The Springfield Jobs.  How are you doing with Act 3?  Ready for it all to be over?  What do you think is next in TSTO?

How about the rest of your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting going on? Enjoying your Spring?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

And now a message from the Tiny Addict…

Friday Filler – Put on the 3D Glasses…or Pretend To

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

It funny how fast trends and fads come and go in this age of “instant gratification.”  The whole “3-D Virtual Reality” thing had a HUGE buzz right around Christmas (go figure)…and we’ve hardly heard a word about it since.

From the first patter of excitement about Oculus Rift and a huge variety of competing headsets (starting in 2012) , if you believed the hype, we were all supposed to be walking around experiencing virtual reality, overlayed with our own real-reality, by now.  So, what’s the hold up? Reality.

The units are huge…uncomfortable…and in many, many cases, make the wearer nauseous. Add to this the recent “diversion of attention” by the Oculus parent company, Facebook, and you see why delays may be understandable. Go figure.

But, that doesn’t stop people from doing cheap knockoffs. I got some of the AEOSTYLE 3-d goggles this Christmas…where you put your phone into the slot, and then watch virtual reality tours of places you have never been…nor likely would go.  It is fun. I get it. But, it doesn’t really represent a reality in which I would like to participate!

But, the same fad was hot in the early days of TSTO! Building 3-D out of 2-D was huge!  People would spend hours “faking out the landscape” to create depth, dimension, and unique designs, with tiny bits and pieces that were re-purposed.

There are still some pretty cool artifacts around my Neighbor’s Towns…I found some to share...No 3-D Goggles required!
