A Friendly Reminder

Happy Sunday Night Tappers!

I can’t believe I need to actually post this but…please remember tomorrow is April Fool’s Day.  Take that into account when reading TSTO related forums.

Seeing a bunch of stuff about an update coming tomorrow…I can tell you I see nothing about an update.  Nothing on the server, nothing from EA.  So please, use your judgment.  If it sounds crazy, it likely is.

So take a deep breath and relax.  This rumor is just a rumor and more likely than not it’s an April Fools joke.

And with that, have a great rest of your night! 🙂

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…..

Well…there’s nothing new in Springfield!  Another week of nothingness…what’s going on?  What do you think will hit?  When?

ICYMI we played a new round of Simpsons Trivia yesterday, all about the episode “Dancin’ Homer”.  Check it out here if you haven’t played yet. 

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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!

Episode Reminder: Girl’s in the Band (Season 30, Episode 19)

Tidings Terrific Television Tune-in’ers!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “T”)

Well you won’t have to wait too long for the next such episode as The Simpsons is back this Sunday, with an all new episode! Woohoo!

So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode, the season’s nineteenth episode, this Sunday, March 31st, on FOX (no longer half an hour earlier on Global in Canada, but at the same time on City TV)….“Girl’s in the Band”!

Time to brush up on your Simpsons skills because today’s trivia starts now!

Friday Filler- Casual Bonus Farming During Downtime

Thank Grog It’s Friday!

Let’s be honest about it.  We’ve been waiting for a very long time for some fulfillment.   And when we finally get the  answer, and it’s not what we were hoping for, you can do one of two things.  Lament, or just roll with it.

And no… this is not a political post. It is the simple admission that while we were CERTAIN that an update… something really great…something that would answer our prayers would finally drop (and I’m STILL not talking about politics) it didn’t.  The answer to our prayers was actually just another “sorry…no real answers yet” that leaves us having to come to our own conclusions while we wait for the REAL answers. And yes.  Maybe this time I’m talking about TSTO and maybe something else.

So…when there are more questions than answers, and you have loads of time on your hands to burn, you might as well be productive, and get to  work making it EAsier to be happier in the future…when the real answer drops.  And at this point, I’m not really sure what the hell I’m talking about anymore.

Wait.  The headline.  That’s Right… increasing your Bonus XP to increase your Farming Yield! Making it EAsier to get more of what we don’t know we want yet!
In other words…improving your ability to earn more while doing less, by working a bit more now.

Simpson’s News Links

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, just because we don’t have any new content in our pocket-sized towns doesn’t mean we can’t still have some Simpsons sized fun!  Here’s the latest roundup of Simpon’s News and a few fun things to check out!

TSTO Playable Characters and Costumes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

While we’ve got a little bit of downtime I thought I’d work on something players have been asking me to update for a while now…the list of playable characters in TSTO.

We’ve got a list here, but I’ve been terrible at updating it. (Last update was Sept of 2016…🤦‍♀️) We also have a full list of character costumes here, but that also hasn’t been updated since Sept 2016.  So now I’ve updated both lists through the Classless Reunion Mini-Event, so this is up to date as of, today, March 28th, 2019.  And hopefully I’ll remember to update the lists with each event…although if someone wouldn’t mind reminding me to do it that would be tremendously helpful.  (I’ve got a lot on my plate and mind, I’m always forgetting to update stuff…🤹‍♀️). 

And yes, I plan on updating both of those linked lists here shortly.  

And now without further ado…the character lists…

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

In-Game Update: New Patch Released (Issues Fixed)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Normally I don’t really write about patches that hit our game, since typically it’s minor changes few will notice, however, a patch hit our games a short while ago that many of you will notice.

With this patch (in-game update, so it will download automatically.  Nothing you need to do in the app store) a lot of the crap that was broken with the Yearbook Mystery Box was corrected.

-Items that were unique (like the Pride of Ulster Banner) are now removed from the box.
-Little Helper Ralph’s quests can now be done at the Brown House, preventing that jam of questlines if you didn’t have the Toy Workshop.
-If you won Blackbeard but didn’t have the Airship you’ll now be given the Airship for free (check your inventory for it).  This corrects that questline jam as well.
-And I believe the issue with the RayGun and flying UFO has now be corrected as well.

Additionally, the Yearbook Mystery Box is still in the game.  You can access it via the Premium Menu (Homer Buddha Icon) in your store. (unless, of course, you’ve cleared it out.  If it’s empty then you can no longer access it)

And that’s it, from what I can see.  At the moment no new content in the game and no spoiler info from EA.  We’ll see what happens as the day progresses.  I can tell you typically, if new content is hitting the server we’ll see it around 5:30-6:30pm ET.  I’ll be checking to see what, if anything, hits.  If I see anything you guys know I’ll be posting about it.  So in the meantime sit tight and get inspired by everyone’s awesome designs in this week’s Showoff! 🙂

Springfield Showoff: Springfield Smorgasbord

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.
