After a stressful week of work or school, the weekend is finally here. And what better way to spend the weekend than talking math. So every few Saturday’s, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.
From time to time we’ll get questions about a few things we may have covered wayyyy back when Addicts first started (nearly 4 years ago), which causes us to think maybe we should post about it again. This time apply things to how they work now.
One of those frequently asked questions is about posting images image the Addicts comments. Now we covered the basics of this way back in 2013 on this post and this post, but we never really covered specifically how to get the image (not just the link) to appear directly in the comment section. So let’s break it down for you now…
So, as many of you know, over the last week or so of downtime in the game I’ve been slowly posting highly requested posts to this site (i.e. Charts…how-tos etc) and I’ve also been doing some behind the scenes maintenance on the site to clean up some older areas and make things easier to find. Now that the projected down time is almost up (we’re thinking something will hit Tuesday Oct 4th), I’ve completed most of the additions and maintenance for this go round. So I invite you to explore the site, check out the changes…and be prepare for what’s next!
One thing that surprised me in my “What should I work on post” is many of you were looking for additions to the site that we already had (like a quick access link to all posts about a particular event). That that prompted me to think many of you aren’t exploring the site or using the menus and widgets that are available. So for my final downtime maintenance post, I’m going to detail how to use this site..and show you how to find many key features this site has to offer. So indulge me for a moment if you don’t mind 🙂
Note from Alissa: So one of the popular requested items on my “what would you like to see on this site during the downtime” post was more details about Donut/XP Farming. What it is, how it’s done…and what the heck Kwik-E-Mart Farming is. And of course everyone’s favorite site contributor…Safi…stepped up and offered to write up the post! Safi reached out to me and we discussed writing up the post. And in true Safi fashion he stepped in with loads of details, charts, tables and figures! Full disclosure, this post may be a little daunting for newer tappers or casual Tappers. There are some great tips in here for those looking to earn free donuts. Just remember to take your time figuring it all out and go at your own pace 🙂
And now here’s Safi….
“Hi Everybody!” (Hi Dr Nick Safi!)
With the recent release of Level 60 and the end of all levels, the games concept of leveling up has shifted slightly. Once you complete Level 60, you’ll be able to continue to level up to Level 61 and beyond. There’s just no questline, character, or building associated with those levels (Homerlayas excluded).
Initially, you can level up from Level 61 to Level 100 each time you fill up an XP bar of 40k XP. You receive 1 donut for each time you level up, for a total of 40 donuts.
You can then continue to level up from Level 100 to Level 939 each time you fill up an XP bar of 500k XP. You receive 1 donut for each time you level up, for a total of 839 more donuts.
Beyond Level 939, your Level does not go any higher. However, each time you fill up an XP bar of 1 million XP, you have the opportunity to choose one of three boxes for a chance at 1, 2, or 3 free donuts.
So there is potential for premium and freemium players alike to score thousands of free donuts as a result of leveling up by continuously filling their XP bar.
Let’s take a closer look at the details and strategies that go into XP Farming…
In the world of TSTO, there are clearly those who don’t really understand the excitement around the return of the Monorail, and those who think, “The Monorail is the BEST UPDATE EVER Because It Keeps on Giving and Giving and Giving!!!”
I think it would be safe to say that I am in the latter camp.
From the earliest days of my youth, back in a time when you had to make your own toy building blocks out of the tree that you had to cut yourself, after walking nine miles barefoot into the woods, I have enjoyed building things. It would be accurate that the “building things” and designing, and redesigning, and tweaking your design, is the very reason I tap.
Yes. I love the Simpsons. Yes. I like the dialogue. Yes. I think Maggie is “oh, so, cute!” But, the real reason I play, is that TSTO gives us so many ways to build, and decorate, and create. This aspect of my personality came out early in life when I began model railroading.
I’ll let that settle in.
Yes. This CrankyOldGuy has boxes of HO track, rolling stock, and buildings, ready to set up at a grandchild’s notice. I like building things…and then watching them run.
Which is why the MONORAIL IS THE BEST UPDATE TO EVER… Oh. Wait. We already covered that bit.
But, even for those of you who are less than enthusiastic about grinding for track, there is a HUGE reward!!
