The End is Near for the Holiday Whodunnit Event…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Holiday Whodunnit Event Ends TOMORROW January 12th.

It’s time to clear out the snow and move onto something new in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any Act questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

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) 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…..

Some things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a “Caption This!” moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by HondoRiley…

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com you never know when yours might be next!

Showoff Announcement: Holiday Whodunnit (Christmas 2021)

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 Holiday Whodunnit/Christmas 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 holiday-inspired designs (by 8 pm ET Tuesday, January 11th) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, January 12th.

Remember, your designs can be anything and everything from the Holiday Whodunnit Event, new and old, and how you worked it into your Springfield

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8 pm ET Tuesday, January 11th, 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.)

Holiday Whodunnit Act 4 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  I just love the look of a fresh blanket of snow covering my pocket-sized town…at least for now.  I’ll get sick of it by the time January rolls around…in TSTO and in real life (have I mentioned lately I wanna move to Florida?) Anyway, yes the annual Christmas/holiday event has arrived in Springfield, so what does EA have in store for us? Well, we’ve got a real mystery on our hands!  A holiday whodunnit if you will! Poor Santa…

As always, 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…

Remember, this is the FINAL Act of this event.  So you have to finish this, and any others you haven’t yet finished, by the time the event ends on January 12th.  

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue where we head back to the Santa Sleigh Race…

Kent Brockman: Hello, I’m Kent Brockman and welcome to the 1st annual “Santa Sleigh Race”! Proudly brought to you by the folks at Gnome-In-The-Home Dome.
Mary Tannenbaum: You’re talking into MY camera.
Kent Brockman: Dangit, that was a perfect take.
Lisa: Look who’s here!
Santa Claus: Ho-ho-ho! *sways precariously* Whoa-whoa-whoa!
Herb Tannenbaum: Santa! It’s so good to see you up and about!
Santa Claus: Herb, I heard you lost a limb in my defense. I couldn’t ask for a better friend.
Marge: Santa, you look a little wobbly there. Maybe you should sit back down.
Bart: Yeah, me and Homer have got the present-delivering covered, so take a load off. All you need to do is grant a couple crazy Christmas gifts we promised to get for people.
Santa Claus: Unlimited gifts cannot be done, Bart.
Bart: What about my waterslide into my infinity pool?
Santa Claus: It all depends on the requirements of the building code…but consider it done!

This triggers the Act 4 questline, Sleighing It and is followed by  4hr tasks for Springfielders (x3), Herb Tannenbaum, Santa, and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (125), and Christmas Trivia.  Sleighing It is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
