Friday Filler – Gaining Perspective in TSTO and Life From the ISS

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Yes, it has been another week of multitasking. Finishing the bathroom(s), doing a ton of client work, and still doing the 24/7 caregiver bit to my wife. But, the fact is, once I found the rhythm, it fell into place pretty well, once I accepted my place in all of the chaos.

And it was made all the easier by the fact that I hardly had to play TSTO at all. As in barely, barely, barely…to finish this chapter.

I’m really not sure how I feel about the game right now. But, I realize that my emotions and opinions are slightly colored by the rest of the craziness around me.  Like accepting the weird choices in the sizes of the buildings in our game (come on…the Stadiums aren’t much bigger than the stores), and just having fun…it’s all just gaining a little perspective.

Should I Spend Donuts On Llewellyn Sinclair and the Springfield Community Theater?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

TSTO is back baby!  We’re FINALLY getting on, what feels like, a somewhat normal update schedule!  Praise Jebus! The theme of this multi-event?  Simpson Babies. Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Llewellyn Sinclair and the Springfield Community Theater to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this theatrical combo to your town…

Showoff Announcement: Springfield Babies

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and with the Simpsons Babies in its final week, it’s time to show us what you’ve done with all the new stuff!   So this time around I want to see what you’ve done with the Simpsons Babies Stuff! (Community Theater, Bumper Cars, Fotohut, Lower East Side Apartments, etc.)  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

As always please remember to limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole town, unless you want to send in your entire town via town portrait.

So use this time to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Simpsons Babies designs (by 8pm ET Tuesday, September 3rd) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, September 4th. 

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Tuesday, September 3rd, can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Musings About TSTO Addicts Turning 6…

Happy Musings Thursday my friends!  This week I’m musing about birthdays.  With the littlest Addict turning 1 yesterday, I’ve been thinking about how quickly time has flown by!  So quickly, in fact, I completely forgot to mention a big milestone around here that happened 2 weeks ago.  TSTO Addicts turned SIX! Since I forgot to talk about it a couple of weeks ago, I’ve got some thoughts on it now, so let’s get to ’em…

Baby Homer: Woo hoo!
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Baby Lisa: I guess it’s all up to you, Bart. Everyone else is a baby now.
Grampa: I’m not a baby! And my diapey needs changing! Waaah!
Bart: Grampa, take care of the kids. And if I’m not back in one hour, call the police.
Grampa: You’re dumb as a pineapple! You can call the police now!
Bart: I tried that!
Wiggum: Hello, you’ve reached the Springfield Police Department. We’re out getting a new answering machine, so please leave your name and crime after the tone.
Lou: The tone doesn’t work, Chief. That’s why we’re getting a new answering machine.
Wiggum: I’m not following. Let’s roll!

This triggers the week 5 questline, Age Against the Machine, and is followed by a 4hr tasks for the babies., as well as a task to collect Week 4 Currency (50).  Age Against the Machine is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 4 prizes.
