Time Travel Toaster 2017 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Time Travel Event is set to leave our games today, so now is still a great time to look back at how all of the items added for this event impact our Conform-O-Meters.  Especially since this event brought LOADS of items to Springfield…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Time Travel event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

To paraphrase the late great Canadian ice hockey radio broadcaster Foster Hewitt:
Hello, Canada, and Tapped Out fans in the United States and Newfoundland and rest of the world!

Today is Canada’s 150th Birthday! Huge celebrations are underway from coast-to-coast in commemoration of this big milestone birthday. Being that Canadians make up the second biggest demographic of this site, I thought I’d highlight some of Canada’s greatest contributions over the past 150 years!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I’m a little behind with this one, as the Secret Agents Event left our games a couple of weeks ago.  But, now is still a great time to look back at how all of the items added for this event impact our Conform-O-Meters.  Especially since this event brought LOADS of items to Springfield…

Lunar New Year and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Lunar New Year event is just about over so I thought it would be a good time to take a look at how all of the Chinese New Year inspired items impact the Conform-O-Meter.  As this event brought several new decorations to Springfield, so let’s take a look at how these items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

Springfield Showoff: Places of Worship

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Winter 2016, Homer the Heretic and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Now that we’re waiting for the snow to be removed from our Springfield’s, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the Conform-O-Meter impact for both the Winter Event and Homer the Heretic. Both events brought bunch of new and old items to our Springfield’s (mostly old), so let’s take a look at how these items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.
