Tappers 101: Cars on Roads/Buildings on Water

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So something that’s popped up in the comments recently is about placing cars on roads.  We all know you really can’t do that in TSTO (oh EA how I WISH you would add more things to drive on roads…Mr. Plow’s plow would have been a perfect opportunity!), but there is an existing glitch in the game that will allow you to do so with a little maneuvering of road tiles.  This glitch will also allow you to place buildings on water, should you choose to do so.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
