Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well, the day has finally come…it’s time to get rid of Krustyland forever! The newest update to hit TSTO finally axes Krustyland!
This update should autostart for you, with a 6s task for 3 Springfielders. After that, you’ll be prompted to nuke Krustyland. You cannot progress until you nuke Krustyland. It’s not something you have to do immediately, but you do have to do it (or it’ll be done for you) by Monday, June 4th.
So let’s break down the newest update, shall we?
Event Ends July 11th.
Act 1 ends June 13th
First, let’s talk about the Krustyland Nuke.
As mentioned above, you will not be able to progress in the event until you’ve nuked Krustyland. You’ll have 5 days to do it on your own, or it’ll be done for you automatically on June 4th.
So store your items, if you like your designs ASAP.
For those that want a land map of K-Land here it is:
As far as what happens with tickets….
you’ll be able to keep them. You can purchase Krustyland stuff in your store for Tickets still. It’s just all moved to Springfield.
In addition, for those asking, you’ll also be able to place Krustyland walkways in Springfield now. They’ll appear with your Road Tiles/Dirt etc.
I’ll have a questline post up (likely tomorrow AM), but you will receive ITCHY for Free as part of the questline.
Now onto the other basics….
You’ll first be tasked with placing the Itchy and Scratchy Land Gate which will be free. This gate will serve as your event “hub”. Tapping on it will bring up tasks, and the area around it will serve as your bonus area (more on that in a minute)
The gate comes with a patch of land and a free land token.
The event itself (ie prizes and new items in the store) unlocks after you complete The Itchy-Est Place on Earth Pt. 3.
Act 1 prize currency is foam Knives (i’ll explain how to earn them in a minute)
Here are the prizes for Act 1…
There will be different rounds of crafting with this event, just like the last one. Each new Act opens more craftables. Except Levels are back with this one…
You can earn I&S Money by tapping visitors and sending characters on tasks. Here’s the craftables list…
For Act 1 you’ll need to reach Crafting level 4. After that the items will unlock during Act 2.
Just like the last two events, there’s an arrangement bonus around the I&S Gate. Placing items that earn arrangement bonus in this area award you even more event currency (only impacts prize track currency, not crafting currency). This area is MASSIVE.
Items such as the Injury 500 and craftables all earn arrangement bonuses. So place them in the area to increase your currency…
While we’re on the topic of the Injury 500….you’ll need to place the long track correctly inside the ride so that it can be used. If you see from the inital placement that long track is slightly off…
Just slide that long track a little bit to the right to get it to line up correctly. Should look like this…
Earning Event Currency
Much like every other event….simply tap Park Visitors to earn Foam Knives and Crafting Currency.
Park Visitors Look like this..
You can also tap them in your neighbor’s towns. More on that in a minute…
They Spawn at a rate of 1/10 minutes. You can have a max of 30 in your town at once, with a bank of 30.
You can also earn event currency by sending characters to staff rides (this rate earned changes with your arrangement bonus %). Simply tap the Itchy & Scratchy gate to Staff Rides.
Neighbor Actions unlock with The Itchy-Est Place on Earth Pt. 4.
New Items In Store…
First, in celebration of donut day on Friday (June 1st) EA is doing some donut specials.
Not bad if you’re looking to spend some cash on donuts.
Also, they’re giving you some free donuts for Donut day…and making it temporarily rain donuts…
Donut day offers end June 6th
Now onto the other items in the store…
There are a few new K-Land items (which you can find by tapping the Krusty icon in the store). These will all cost tickets…
Parking lots, debris, Walls, highways and more. Check out that area to see what’s available to you.
Summer Concert Mystery Box- 80 Donuts. Contains: Alaska Nebraska, Alcatraaz’s Mansion, Sungazer Studio, The Jazz Hole, Manager Cletus Bundle, Classified Records, New Bedlam Rest Home, Sungazer Tour Bus, Praiseland Promo Bundle
Aside from Mystery Boxes there’s not a ton of returning content at the moment…
Other things to know…
-It looks like we’ll be getting a new President for 4th of July (as well as old ones coming back)
-Does look like there will be some kind of Pride element.
-It appears, even with having to move K-Land to Springfield, the item limit has NOT been increased. This will impact a bunch of you. Not cool.
-Yes, we’ll be back with the Calendar, Turbo Tappin’ and other info you’ll need to know (and yes ALLLLLL the Should I Buys…) so relax and enjoy day 1.
