DID – Is Your Town Tagvenient for Your Neighbors?

This week in Designing In Downtime (DID), I want to elaborate on a couple of key points about the newly discovered joys of tagging, as well as discovering the “New in the Old of the Yearbook.”

One is pretty obvious, the other only really reveals itself when you are in the process of taking on our new pastime, “Tagging All Of Your Neighbors.”

Both are great ways to deal with “Downtime Lulliness” in TSTO, which may or may not be the “new normal” for the game. In either case, it is a great way to “keep the action lively” when you are bored.

Springfield Showoff: Real Moms of Springfield

Important Note: Good Morning! I know yesterday’s speculation from EA has got a lot of you excited about a possible event hitting.  As of right now I have no information on a new event, nor is there anything in the files.  I’ll do my best to keep you updated on it, but I am going to be unavailable for a few hours today.
For now we’re operating as usual, with our regularly scheduled post plan…which includes this Showoff Post and a DID post later from Patric. (of course things may change if something hits).  If you’re looking to speculate about what may be coming with the next event I encourage you to head over to this post and comment there.  This way we can keep event speculation posts in on place 🙂

Thanks guys!

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”.
