Updated Character Tasks with Red Alert Update

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So it appears that with the latest update in our games, Red Alert, EA has added some missing tasks for characters.  Now I’m going to fully admit, I’m not 100% sure if this is the full list of updates, or if all of these are updates (some may already be existing).  With so many characters (and years) in this game, it’s hard to keep track of everything!  But I figured, let’s write out the list (it’s pretty long) anyway…can’t hurt!

So here’s the list, as I see it, for the updated character tasks with the 1/19/22 Red Alert update in TSTO…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Holiday Whodunnit Event.  And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)  The first new event of 2022!

This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on February 2nd.

App Store Update: Red Alert Mini-Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry, this is going up a bit later than I would have liked.  Just now finally getting a chance to sit down and look at everything.  

As I mentioned on this post, there’s now an app store update available to download for TSTO.  This update won’t remove the snow, as I thought it might (probably just wishful thinking…have I mentioned I hate snow?)..instead this update brings the game files into your game for the next mini-event in TSTO…Red Alert!

So it was the sentient Christmas tree that attacked Santa? But why? Just because the holiday is responsible for the deaths of millions of his brothers and sisters? Oh… I guess that’s why. Anyway, it looks like justice came home for Christmas this year. Now that Santa is in the clear and the Tannenbaums are behind bars, we can get back to enjoying the true spirit of Christmas – gathering around a fire and yelling at our loved ones.

This mini-event is not live yet, and won’t go live until 9am ET on Wednesday January 19th, 2022…but downloading the update now will help make sure you don’t miss out on the update once it hits our games tomorrow morning.

For those who like a little more detail, here’s what you can expect character-wise with the event…

Snow PSA

Update #2: Update is available via the App store.  It’s entitled New Years 2022, so we’ll see what’s in store for us.  And apparently, EA has decided not to remove the snow with this update.  Go figure.  If I hadn’t given the warning the snow would be gone…seriously can’t predict what they’re going to do.

Update:  And just like that there’s an update in the files…should be hitting app stores soon.  So capture those snow pictures while you can!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly PSA reminder that the snow should be leaving our Springfields very soon…likely today.  The next app store update, which hasn’t hit yet…but I expect it to hit today…should remove the snow from your Springfield.

So if you want to preserve how your town looks covered in the white stuff grab all the screenshots you can now! And feel free to share them with your fellow tappers in the comments below!  One last goodbye to snow as we prepare to welcome the green grass in once again!

If you need help posting screenshots/images in the comments, we have a post on that!  You can find that info here.

I’ll be back if/when an update hits our app stores!  For now enjoy the snow while it’s still around!

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.
