Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
After (roughly) 7 years of TSTO, we finally were hit with an update today that brought a MUCH desired and requested feature to our pocket-sized Springfields! The “Collect All” is FINALLY here!
This comes to us via the Sky Finger monument…afterall Springfield knows who’s really in control of their town!
Let’s take a look at this new feature, including how you unlock it and how it all works…
So let’s start with a couple of basics….
-As of right now, the Sky Finger monument is free and only available during this event. According to the files, the ability to unlock the Sky Finger Monument leaves on March 12th…with the mini-event. So if you don’t get it now I don’t know what will happen in the future.
-The monument unlocks with the Get to the Point questline. (you’ll see it in your store prior, but it will be locked)
-From what I’m seeing it only clears building income (including Krustyland tickets), I do not believe it works on jobs.
-You can only tap it once every 24hrs.
Now here’s the questline that unlocks it…
Get to the Point Pt. 1
Quimby: Order, order, I, er, bring this town hall meeting to order! Something strange has come over our town. And it’s not March Madness because we eradicated that years ago. We’ve been having a series of, well, I don’t want to say Biblical plagues but I’m, er, going to.
Lisa: It’s global warming! We drove the Earth to its limits and now we must pay. But we can stop it-
Quimby: No one likes to hear about global warming. So let’s put our heads together and find something else to blame.
Ned: Isn’t it obvious? We know exactly who to blame-diddly-ame.
Lovejoy: Oh no. Dear Lord, why do I even bother leaving my trains?
Make Ned Rant About Fire and Brimestone- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Ned: We have incurred God’s rather just wrath because none of you were willing to spend one hour in church one day a week. But you’d all rather sit around in front of the TV getting fat than visit our Lord on a Sunday. He’s seen how you’ve pushed him aside in favor of all your vices, and now he’s sent a plague to teach us. We must show him we got the message loud and clear by erecting a monument to him on the front steps of the courthouse! The Ten Commandments erected in solid gold ought to do nicely. Yessir, empty out your pockets and let’s start the collection.
Get to the Point Pt. 2
Blue Haired Lawyer: I feel I must advise you that erecting a statue to the Ten Commandments would violate separation of church and state.
Quimby: Not to mention that gold is both tacky AND expensive.
Ned: B-but, if we don’t erect a statue to our Lord then how can we expect his forgiveness?!
Homer: Wait a minute, if we’re going around erecting statues to gods then what about Sky Finger?
Lovejoy: Hmm. Sky Finger is not formally recognized by the church, more’s the pity, so it wouldn’t violate separation of church and state.
Quimby: Great! A proposal that’s unlikely to get me sued. Make it so!
Build Sky Finger Monument
Homer: Wait a minute! I thought we were making this statue out of solid gold?!
Quimby: My heart said gold, but what’s left of the city budget after I, er, borrowed some funds, said styrofoam convincingly painted like bronze and stone.
Homer: So Sky Finger erects an entire city and this is all the thanks we give?! We can do better…maybe?
Get to the Point Pt. 3
Quimby: Better? What more do you want, a parade? We’re not allowed to have those anymore after the last one ended in a stampede.
Homer: What about a ribbon cutting?
Quimby: That also ended in a stampede. We’re a town of stampeders.
Homer: There must be something we can do to show our devotion to Sky Finger?! Like, I don’t know, a funny limerick or something?
Ned: I think you mean a prayer.
Quimby: I’ve never known a limerick to start a stampede. Let’s give it a go.
Make Homer Compose a Limerick to Sky Finger-8hrs, Earns $420, 105xp
Homer: A God amid thumbs is our Sky Finger.
On the might of its point our lives linger.
Our town isn’t the same.
Since its knuckles took reign.
Something, something, comedic rhyme, the end!
Get to the Point Pt. 4
Quimby: That was barely a limerick, but at least it didn’t result in a stampede.
Marge: Homie gave it his best, that ought to be more than enough.
Ned: Yes, everything always seems to work out for him, but in matters of religion I really think you ought to listen to a more Godly man.
Homer: Hey! Sky Finger! I wrote you a poem; I’ve never even done that for Marge. Come on, I’ve always thought we were pals! Don’t turn your back, er, the back of your finger on us now!
Use the Sky Finger Monument
Homer: Woohoo! I knew Sky Finger was our one true savior.
Ned: B-b-but! I’ve been praying to our Lord for a miracle for years and Homer recites half a poorly written limerick and gets it?!
Lovejoy: Come along Ned, I’ve got a bottle of communion wine I’ve been saving for just such a crisis of faith.
Homer: Bless you Sky Finger, I’ll worship at your altar as often as I feel like it, and always with a side of nachos.
So once you’ve completed the questline, and gotten to the “Use Sky Finger Monument” task you’ll start the timer for Sky Finger to clear all buildings.
Tap the monument and you’ll see the Sky Finger Monument details. If it’s ready to go you’ll see it say Ready! and have a Purple Start button to tap.
Tap that button to automatically collect income from all buildings in Springfield.
If it’s not ready, you’ll see the timer bar indicating how much time is left until you can use the monument again…
And that’s it. Really simple to use! Be sure to put it somewhere in your Springfield where you can quickly access it when you open your game, so you don’t have to go looking for it.
Here are some other details on the Monument…
