Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
TSTO is back baby! We’re FINALLY getting on, what feels like, a somewhat normal update schedule! Praise Jebus! We’re back to multi-events for this one. So love them, or hate them, they’re here to stay at least (likely) through the end of the year. The theme of this multi-event? Simpson Babies…
Side note: Anyone else have this them song immediately stuck in their head upon hearing this update was called Simpson Babies? They’re really taking this “owned by Disney” thing seriously…
Anywho….things kick off with 6s tasks for Lisa, and Bart. This then kicks off the Simpsons Babies Multi-Event!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Seeing a bunch of you report issues with Amazon devices crashing with this update. I, unfortunately, have no way to personally verify this. My best advice, is likely something y’all don’t want to hear, you’ll have to contact EA on this. I’ll drop the direct contact link here for you, so you don’t have to go searching for it. As soon as I see any updates on this I’ll post about it. In the meantime, if you do contact EA about it please keep me updated about what they say.
Another IMPORTANT NOTE: For some reason, even if your game sound is off, when you start up TSTO it starts playing ambient sounds. It’s incredibly annoying when you’re at work and something EA needs to fix immediately. If your sound and sound effects are OFF, they should remain OFF.
**For part 1 you’ll need to send Marge and Homer on a 4hr task and collect 50 Broken Toys. To collect Toys you can send: Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge, Grampa, Maggie, Milhouse, Baby Frink, Baby Moe, and Baby Barney (New Premium Characters)**
As always, I’m going to continue to update this post as I run through things so keep checking back…
As I mentioned yesterday, no Event Packet from EA was provided this time around. If we do receive the packet I’ll update y’all with some words from EA regarding the event. Until then…business as usual around here.
We should all know by now unless of course, you’re new to TSTO that the prizes for this event follow the same questline format to unlock as our regular mini-events do.
Just like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Game of Games etc before it, this is not your typical Major Event. And there are pros and cons to that, and everyone will find their own pros and cons. And some people’s pro will be someone else’s con.
As always, I just ask that you have an open mind, and reserve judgment until we’re into the event. It’s 4 weeks long (and remember for the past few years we’ve been complaining that events that are 6 weeks plus are just too long). It should be fairly easy to complete. You’ll unlock a bunch of new prizes. No crafting to grind through. Just have some good old fashioned TSTO fun. And, as long as you don’t rush things, you won’t get bored because it’ll change each week!
As I stated above, the initial quests are 6s tasks for Bart and Lisa. Once completed you’ll start The Younger Games questline, which is the week 1 story to follow. This is how you’ll unlock the Week 1 (Act 1) prizes…
Simpsons Babies Intro
Marge: Goodnight, kids! Your father and I are heading out for a romantic sandwich dinner.
Homer: Take good care of the third kid, what’s-her-name. Or is it the fourth? I lost count after zero.
Bart: Wait wait wait, you’re leaving us to babysit Maggie? We don’t know the first thing about–
SimpsonsDoor : *SLAM *
Lisa: Don’t panic! I’m sure she’ll fall asleep soon and we won’t have to do anything.
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Bart: Suck suck? What’s that supposed to mean? And what smells like a double-stuffed diaper?
Bart And Lisa: Aaaaagh!
6s Tasks for Bart and Lisa
Lisa: There, I changed her! We didn’t have any clean diapers, but I used a dog sweater that Santa’s Little Helper rarely wears in the summer months.
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Lisa: She needs her bedtime story! But I used all the baby books as baby wipes, since we were out of dog sweaters.
Bart: Then we have no choice but to make up a thrilling tale of mystery and suspense that will instantly bore her to sleep.
Lisa: Agreed. And all the characters need to be babies. Everything needs to be baby-fied.
Bart: I prefer the term… “Youthenized”.
Maggie: *gasp* *suck*
Lisa: Once upon a time… there was a virtual world, swarming with babies!
And this triggers the entire story premise for each act…
(and yes, just like I did for the past multi-events, I’ll be posting full dialogue for this one before each week is over)
Now let’s talk about what’s included…
DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 1:
Captain Dodge-Em’s Bumper Cars (Building)
OROld Simpson Farm House (Building) OR 6 Donuts, if you already have the Farm House
Springfield Destruction Derby Ground (Building)
The Doughy Dozen Bagels (Building)
Baby Homer (Full Character)
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 1:
Baby Frink (new Premium)
Baby Moe (New Premium)
Baby Barney (New Premium)
The Daily Challenges have NOT converted over to event currency. They remain exactly as they’ve been prior to this event launching. Cash, SH Currency and Donuts.
Here’s what’s included today:
Gil is Back!
For 299 Donuts you can get Baby Moe, Baby Barney, and Moe’s Express Lemonade stand. I’ll have more details on this one in a Gil Deal post a little later…Leaves Stores 8/14
Pastel Picket Fence– $75, I’m a big fan of this. There’s a lot you can do, just check out this post for some design inspiration…
Youngsters Mystery Box- 40 Donuts. Contains: Greta, Ronaldo, Brandon, Sherri & Terri, Patches & Poor Violet, Kearney’s Other Son, Uter, Allison Taylor, Mary Spuckler, Angelica Button, Sophie, Laura Powers, Jeremy Jailbird, Adil, Luke Stetson, Jessica Lovejoy, Erik, Gino, CHUM, and Wendell. This is a returning box from Black Friday 2018. You can find details on it here (although now the cost is cheaper at 40 donuts vs 60 last fall. I guess EA realized they have to lower donut costs to compete with the Yearbook Box)
Items leave stores on September 4th
Because I know I’ll be asked…as of right now I don’t see anything awarding Land Tiles. Nor do I see the Golden Goose Realty coming back with this event.
This may be corrected with a patch during this event, but as of right now I don’t see a way of getting more land with this event.
I’m sure GGR will come back at some point, just have to wait it out a little longer.
And that’s it my friends. The details of week one of the Simpsons Babies update!
