Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s update time in Springfield! And after 8 years of TSTO, we’re finally tackling Black History Month! No time like the present for EA, huh? What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with finding out the history of Dr. Hibbert, Carl, Lou, and the Simpson Family! Loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up.
Black History Month (Heroes of Springfield) follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it. This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!
For Act 2 we’re tasked with collecting hard hats! Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the second part of the story, Carl’s history with his Dad!
So let’s take a look at prizes 1 and 2 Black History Prize track…Carl’s spend time with dad task and the crowd of presidential kids…
First up, Carl’s spend time with dad task…
How You Unlock it:
Fair-Weather Father Pt. 1
Make Carl Tell His Father’s Story- 4hrs
Collect Hard Hats- x350.
Once achieved you’ll unlock the task…
Item: Carl’s Spend Time with Dad task
What Does It Do?: Animated 8hr task for Carl. When on it he has a picnic for two…except the other one never shows. 😦
WDTCF: “The Seemingly Never-Ending Story” S17, E13
Note: It looks like there was an error on the information EA provided us. The packet they sent indicated that Carl’s Dad Caverns came with this task (if you did not own it already). However, in actual gameplay, this does not seem to be the case.
Next up, prize 2, the Crowd of Presidential Kids…
How You Unlock it:
Fair-Weather Father Pt. 2
Make Bart Reluctantly Stick Around for Carl’s Flashback- 4hrs
Collect Hard Hats- x300
Once achieved you’ll unlock the Crowd of Presidential Kids…
Item: Crowd of Presidential Kids
Earns: Nothing,, just a decoration
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
What Does it Do?: When tapped the kids change formation…like other crowds in Springfield.
Other Info: You will not be given the opportunity to buy more crowds once you unlock these guys. (at least not as of now) It’s a one and done situation with this group…sorry guys!
Here’s a look at the various formations:
And that’s it my friends, the details of the first 2 Black History Act 2 prizes in TSTO!
