Springfield Jobs 101: Act 2 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Act 2 brought eight new craftables to Springfield, so let’s take a closer look at the new items…

Springfield Jobs Act 2 is Live!

Note: Yes, the servers are currently down. Not unexpected because it’s a later in the day update, more tappers are awake and wanting to play than when they hit at 4am ET.  I’m posting the rundown now, but I personally haven’t been able to 100% verify everything (I got kicked out too) so if I need to make changes I will once the server is back up.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Friday Friends!  Time to gear up for the weekend….with a brand new Act of the Springfield Job!  Act 2 has arrived, so have at it my friends….

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Hugs Bunny, Shary Bobbins, Egg Council Guy or Easter Trees?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the midst of all the Heisting, Jesus has come back to Springfield to remind us that it is, in fact, the Easter Season.  That’s right, with Easter 3 days away it’s time to get a little holy (just a little…it is Springfield after all) with several returning Easter-ish themed items in our stores.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

There are a total of 7 returning items, either from Easters past or just something to remind you of the resurrection.  I’m going to break these up into 2 different returning posts because, well, it’s a lot of content and let’s face it..it’s still lent we all should be punished a little bit..

Anywho, for this second of two posts, I’m going to tackle the Stand-Alone portion of the returning content…as in Stand-Alone Characters and trees…because when you’re a pink fluffy tree it’s likely you’ll always stand alone.

Free Donuts with Easter Content

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something many of you may not have noticed (I know I didn’t).  Thanks to a couple of astute readers for pointing it out…EA is giving you 10 Free Donuts with the Ressurection of the Rigellian Christ content (i.e. the returning Easter Content)!

You’ll see this popup appear when you log into your game….

But it’s so ambiguous (and we’re so programmed to see these popups appear whenever there is new content in the store), many of you (myself included) may not have even noticed the free donuts.  But hey free donuts are free donuts, and 10 free donuts are great!  So I wanted to point it out to you…just in case you missed it!

And hey EA, a little note….when you give players free donuts it’s a good thing.  Make it really well known so they don’t miss it! (and say how many your giving)  They’ll like you better for it, I promise!
