Springfield Showoff: Heaven Wont’ Wait

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. From time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small, and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Update Alert: For All Rich Mankind

Short and sweet ( and late )

Update out for a new mini event
Starts Wednesday 17th May, 15:01 UTC

Asks for Month and Year of your D.O.B when you start the game

I had the dialog run through for Cheap Space Homer in my older town and the quests trigger in my B town – might get to launch the rocket I bought when that’s done but the A town 2nd rocket still doesn’t do anything

Last Road to Riches prize is now visible but you can’t do anything for it yet

I need to go find out more, back when it’s live with a Rundown

Heaven Won’t Wait: Ends Soon

Heaven Won't Wait Splash

Event ends May 17th, 15:00 UTC
15:00 UTC is US 11 am EDT or UK 16:00 BST

If you get the quest showing in your taskbook you can finish it after the timers run out, so if you’re behind with your tapping then try and get the tasks for Part 5 of any unfinished act in there.

If you’ve not decided what to buy from the store it’s make your mind up time, those will vanish when the timer runs out.

The Shattered Dreams box has the same end date so expect an update later.
If you’re scrabbling for the last few Donuts to get anything do not update until you get it. If your device updates automatically head to your app store and find that in settings to stop it from happening if you need to.

If I’m right back later with an Update Alert, TTFN

Showoff Announcement: Heaven Won’t Wait

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and this time around I want to see what you’ve done with the Heaven Won’t Wait event stuff! With new and old buildings and decorations arriving with this event, show me how you fit them into your Springfield!   So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

As always please remember to limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole town unless you want to send in your entire town via town portrait.

So use this time to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your event-inspired designs (by 8 pm ET Tuesday, May 16th (sorry, I know it’s short notice!)) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, May 17th.

Remember, your designs can be anything and everything from Heaven Won’t Wait new and old, and how you worked it into your Springfield

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs… make sure to send your submissions in by about 8 pm ET Tuesday, May 16th can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images in the comments below or email us your screenshots at We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons or current Tapped Out event) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..
