After a very long wait, it’s finally update time in our pocket-sized Springfields! The Real Moms of Springfield mini-event made its way into our towns this morning, nothing like celebrating the MOMs of Springfield! What will happen in the new update? Will Ruth be sent back to prison? Will Quimby find any long lost children? Will any of this make sense? Well, you’ll have to read the dialogue to find out!
Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes. As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is your typical standard mini-event. Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.
UPDATE 5/16/19 @ 2:40PM ET: FIXED. This has been patched. The bug is fixed, and now the requirement is 150 Crappy Gifts, down from 200.
Update: I’ve added another workaround below…
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Stopping the coverage of the mini-event rundown for a minute because I just discovered a bug in the questline.
When playing the questline in my “C” game, which does not have Mona and Nana Sophie, when you reach part 3 of the questline there is a discrepancy in the amount of currency you’re told to collect. The questline/prize track box says you need to collect 200
But in the box that pops up to physically send the characters on the task (when you hit Do It), says you only need 150
So because of the discrepancy, you get stuck on the task. Once you collect 150 it won’t let you send more characters to collect, and you can’t clear the task/prize because that says you need 200…
So this is something that needs to be patched ASAP. Update: Same thing happens in the game where you’ll earn a Land Token instead of Nana Sophie and Mona. It’s a bug with part 3 of the questline.
However, a quick workaround is to pay close attention to the count of you’re collecting for Part 3. When you get close to 150, but don’t go over it, make sure you send enough characters to earn 50+at once. This way you’ll clear the prize and won’t get stuck. Again, this is just a quick workaround (and a royal pain) until it’s patched.
Update: Sorry guys, duh moment on my part this morning. Just realized the other workaround to this that’s easier than the first way…Another workaround is to find the characters that earn the currency and select them via their individual task list…
Again, characters that can be sent: Marge, Lisa, Bart, Homer, Helen Lovejoy, Ruth Powers, Apu, Manjula, Sarah Wiggum and Jerri.
Hopefully, this is something that’s patched quickly!
Something I haven’t said in 35 days…it’s update day in our Pocket-Sized Springfields!
If you’re having trouble getting the event to start, first make sure you’re at least at Level 15 (as that’s the requirement), then try hard closing and restarting TSTO. This should be an in-game update, so an automatic download. Nothing else for you to do. If you’re still not seeing it try uninstalling and reinstalling TSTO.
Yes, if you saw the news yesterday, the Real Moms of Springfield mini-event has arrived in our towns! Not only do we get a new mini-event, but it appears that this update has also fixed the Amazon zoom issue as well!
Things kick off in Springfield with some dialogue between Ruth and Marge, followed by 6s tasks for each. This will be followed by more dialogue and the event launch. For the first part, you’ll need to complete a 4hr task for Marge and collect 150 “Crappy Mother’s Day Gifts”.
This mini-event ends on May 29th (10am ET, 1400 UTC)
IMPORTANT: The Real Moms of Springfield mini-event doesn’t go live in our games until 10am ET (1400 UTC), which is 3.5hrs from when this post goes live. Once it goes live I’ll have a post up with all of the details, like we always do. Until then, this post is meant to entertain you until the mini-event is live…so relax, don’t panic and have a little fun! 🙂
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!
When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!
