While the Week 3 questline (and weeks 1 and 2 for that matter) won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 4 starts, some of the premium items will be leaving the store.

So of you planned to purchase Nikki McKenna (SIB linked) do so before it leaves our games.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 4 to start…

Showoff Announcement: Love, Springfieldian Style

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re a little over halfway through the Love, Springfieldian Style Valentine’s Day Event, and it’s that time.  Time to show us what you’ve done with all this stuff!  With a TON of content…including Future Items, Shelbyville Items, and a Train Station…I want to see what you’ve done with all this stuff! How you’ve incorporated it into Springfield, and if it’s all working for you.

So prep those towns, because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!  And it’s always so helpful to see what others have done with all this new stuff!   So send us your Love, Springfieldian Style inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019…so you’ve got nearly 2 weeks (including TWO weekends) to get your town to your liking and send in those shots!  (Feel free to use the Town Portrait feature…just remember to crop your image to show the area of Springfield you’d like to highlight.  This is not the post to showoff your entire Springfield :))

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET MONDAY, February 18th, 2019.  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 TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  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 TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Wondering if you should add Nikki McKenna & the Springfield Skate Park to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this skater combo to your town…
