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)

June 2nd In-Game Update: Event Currency Changes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note…an in-game update hit and fixed a few issues.  Along with the bug fixes it also dropped currency payouts for the Excavation Site and Dinosaurs tapped…

Excavation Site now pays out 36  per square you did (instead of 42) and the dinosaurs now pay out 5  when tapped (instead of 7).  It also lowered the Specimen and Techyon payouts from the Dig Site as well.

It also changed the  you can earn from the Daily Challenges, lowered each group by a few hundred.

Looks like EA saw players were completing it quickly and adjusted accordingly.  Still very doable, just keep doing what you were doing!

Time Traveling Toaster Update is Here! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s been teased in game..and now we finally remember what Homer forgot….it’s update time!

This is an APP STORE update, so check your app stores to update.  If you don’t see it as a pending update search your store for Tapped Out.

Currently this is only live on Android…waiting on iOS and Kindle…

Live on all Platforms…

As always I’ll be back with more details as I go through them, but for now…I’ve finally had a chance to go through everything, pull all the data and images…so here we go, details below the fold

Homer kicks things off with a 6s task, followed by another 6s task, followed by another 6s task, that last one will trigger the event and the event buildings…again back with more in a bit.

Side note…once you do the first 6s Homer task you’ll get a side quest from Bart.  Initially you’ll be instructed to unlock Cecil…but once you have you’ll get a new daily challenge system…Road to Riches.  From what i can tell this isn’t part of the event…I’ll explore it more in a bit…
