The Lennys (Free Donut Alert)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In case you missed it this morning in Springfield, they’re giving away FREE DONUTS!

Yes, that’s right.  Because the Simpsons have been nominated for the Emmys again this year, EA’s giving you FREE Donuts!  Woohoo!

You’ll see this when you log into Springfield today…

Lenny: Hey Homer, you’ve been nominated for three Lenny’s!
Homer: Woohoo!  I’ve heard it’s an honor just to be nominated for things.  Wait, what’s a Lenny?
Lenny: My annual awards.  Carl usually wins, but I think you’re going to give him a run for his money this year.
Homer: There’s running involved?

At this point, you’ll be awarded 3 donuts!  Not too shabby for doing nothing, huh?

You have until September 18th to claim your free donuts.  So don’t forget to login

County Fair Mini Event is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, the major event (Homerpalooza) is over, but that doesn’t prevent EA making us get up before the crack of dawn (at least here in the US)…so much for sleep.  But, who can sleep anyway?  The County Fair has arrived in our pocket-sized Springfields!

Mini Event Ends September 26th…

Remember, this mini event is an automatic in-game update.   HOWEVER, yesterday an app store update hit to remove Homerpalooza. You MUST download the App Store update, to remove Homerpalooza, before you’ll see the new county fair content.

Homerpalooza Update Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…better late than never right?  We’ve got our major event update…and it’s about time!

This time we’re (as suspected) going Musical!

Note: At the moment this is only live on Android…. on iOS and Android now

I just got home from work and have a Tiny Addict to feed and get to bed.  So i’ll be back with more info later tonight..but for now, remember this is an APP STORE update, which means you have to go into the app store to download it.  If you don’t see it, search Tapped Out and see if the update is available.

Also, things get started with some auto dialogue, followed by a 6s task for Lisa.  This will be followed by another 6s task for Lisa, which is followed by a task to build the Rock Stage (Free) and a 10s task for Homer. This will trigger SOME of the event stuff…

Back with more later on tonight… Ok the Tiny Addict is in bed, I’ve reviewed the files, converted over 5,000 images (yikes!) and have everything ready to go.  More details below the fold…

Act 1 Ends/Act 2 Starts August 15th
Event Ends September 12th

In-Game Update: Superheroes 3?!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In-Game Update just hit our pocket-sized Springfields…NOT a major event that requires an App Download.  No this is like another mini-event.  Short, sweet and something to hold us over until the next “major” event.

Going through everything now myself, so I’ll update this post with more as I get it.  But for now know that you’ll have an initial task with Fallout Boy for 1hr

Also, can I just say…Superheroes? Again? Really?  Come on EA.  Once was awesome.  Twice was ok.  But three times?  Really?  This isn’t Weekend at Bernie’s….

At least it’s a mini event…and it looks like some fun additions were added..

Back with more in a bit…More details below the fold…

Excavation Payout Potential Issues..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in with something real quick…a few of you are reporting it appears that your Excavation Papyri payouts have decreased.  I did a little digging around, and the base is still 36 Papyri (that change was made June 2nd) BUT it appears that somewhere along the lines the payouts have dropped when it gets to the multipliers.

My Panini Press is fully updated, which means I should have a 50% increase on my Papyri payouts…so it should be 54 each dig (50% more of 36), but instead I’m getting 47.

It appears that this is a bug of some sort.  I don’t see any intentional changes in the files.  The base is still 36 and the upgrade payouts still increase by 10% to 50%.

The bottom-line, you’re not going crazy.  Something is going on, but it doesn’t appear to be an intentional change. Seems like it’s a bug and hopefully EA will correct it soon.

(Note: there was an update yesterday.  That update increased the Excavation payouts for Specimen and Tachyons…did not touch the event currency payouts)
