Updates below the fold
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Rolling out this evening is an App Store update for Thanksgiving 2019. The update is going live in App Stores (confirmation for Google and Amazon,
Pat said it’s not showing up in iOS just yet iOS as well), but it is NOT live in-game yet.
I’m in the process of pulling files and images on this, but my hunch is it’ll go live tomorrow morning around 10am.
It’s important to note that downloading this update will NOT remove THOH content from your game. Those items are still set via timer. So you’ll have until tomorrow to make purchases, even if you’ve downloaded the update.
Here are a few images of what’s to come with the update…
I’ll have more info once I go through the files…but don’t let the splash screen fool you. It’s very likely this is a 2 week mini-event, ending December 4th…and that’ll roll into Christmas. At least that’s my working theory…
-Yes, this is a mini-event. Starts tomorrow at 10am ET, yes we’re back to 10am. They’ve updated the files to accommodate for Standard Time. They now show 1400 UTC, which is 10am ET.
-Ends December 4th, at 10am ET, 1400 UTC
-Yes, it appears there are Black Friday “deals”…ie Mystery Boxes. HOWEVER…it looks like the start date on all the boxes (including Cyber Monday) is tomorrow. So Black Friday is coming early to TSTO.
-Similar to last year, it appears as though there will be a special token on Mystery Box. (ie Cash)
-Also, it appears as though there will be special bonus items available if you spend money (or gift cards, or what have you) for donuts.
-I do NOT see the Golden Goose Realty as an item making a comeback with this event.
-1 new item available for purchase with donuts (with the exception of Mystery Boxes), that combo will be 150 donuts…surprising. The character is featured in the Character Collection Box I boxed above.
-If you want the special cash purchase items…be prepared to buy: a stack of donuts, a truckload of donuts, and a store of donuts.
-It appears as though some of the special cash items will generate donuts (like the donut factory does)
-Prize track items, all NEW items…no retreads: a building, a decoration, a special animated job (you’ll like this one, I promise), a token for special Mystery Box, and a new character. Yes, a character not a costume.
-No land tokens available with this mini-event.
It looks like that’s everything I can provide you with right now. I’ll have the rundown post up tomorrow morning after it goes live. And yes, THOH XXX Showoff will still be going live early tomorrow morning. I wouldn’t want all that hard work to go to waste! You guys sent in some really awesome designs!
Another update re Splash Screen…for those saying it’s the same or “recycled” from Thanksgiving 2 years ago, it’s not. Similar but not the same. Here’s the current one:
And here’s the one from 2017…
Homer’s now wearing a costume…the background buildings are at a slightly different position. The only thing the same is the Turkeys…and really what else are they going to put on a Thanksgiving Splashscreen?
Come on guys, lighten up. They used to not do anything different for Thanksgiving…in fact, they changed it in 2017 and went back to regular Homer in 2018. (every splash screen ever can be found here (except for the current one, I need to add it): https://tstoaddicts.com/2017/01/25/tsto-splash-screens-and-poll/)
