App Store Update: Red Alert Mini-Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry, this is going up a bit later than I would have liked.  Just now finally getting a chance to sit down and look at everything.  

As I mentioned on this post, there’s now an app store update available to download for TSTO.  This update won’t remove the snow, as I thought it might (probably just wishful thinking…have I mentioned I hate snow?)..instead this update brings the game files into your game for the next mini-event in TSTO…Red Alert!

So it was the sentient Christmas tree that attacked Santa? But why? Just because the holiday is responsible for the deaths of millions of his brothers and sisters? Oh… I guess that’s why. Anyway, it looks like justice came home for Christmas this year. Now that Santa is in the clear and the Tannenbaums are behind bars, we can get back to enjoying the true spirit of Christmas – gathering around a fire and yelling at our loved ones.

This mini-event is not live yet, and won’t go live until 9am ET on Wednesday January 19th, 2022…but downloading the update now will help make sure you don’t miss out on the update once it hits our games tomorrow morning.

For those who like a little more detail, here’s what you can expect character-wise with the event…

Snow PSA

Update #2: Update is available via the App store.  It’s entitled New Years 2022, so we’ll see what’s in store for us.  And apparently, EA has decided not to remove the snow with this update.  Go figure.  If I hadn’t given the warning the snow would be gone…seriously can’t predict what they’re going to do.

Update:  And just like that there’s an update in the files…should be hitting app stores soon.  So capture those snow pictures while you can!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly PSA reminder that the snow should be leaving our Springfields very soon…likely today.  The next app store update, which hasn’t hit yet…but I expect it to hit today…should remove the snow from your Springfield.

So if you want to preserve how your town looks covered in the white stuff grab all the screenshots you can now! And feel free to share them with your fellow tappers in the comments below!  One last goodbye to snow as we prepare to welcome the green grass in once again!

If you need help posting screenshots/images in the comments, we have a post on that!  You can find that info here.

I’ll be back if/when an update hits our app stores!  For now enjoy the snow while it’s still around!
