How about some Simpsons 2D Fun?

What’s the scoop milkshakes?

Wookiee showing up in the middle of this Stonecutter amazingness just for some 2D fun.  One of the things Bunny and I love to do on this site is make art out of the random decorations EA has given us in this lovely game.  In addition, I get the chance to watch and re-watch and (you get the idea) episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. and every once in a while, 2D shows up in episodes also.  I thought it”d be neat to show you some 2D art I fiddled with as well as 2D images from the show.  If that sounds like fun… it’s all one click away…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back with another edition of Tapped Out on Christmas!  I’ve been noticing more and more in the comments many tappers asking what’s next?  You’ve completed the Gift Card prizes (although if you haven’t…don’t panic you still have plenty of time…until next Tuesday (the 14th) to be exact), won all of the wheel prizes (again if you haven’t don’t panic…or feel one of the F words…you still have plenty of time) and you have no clue what to do until the next update.

Included in the new update were the highly desired Patty and Selma Bouvier, Selma’s beloved Jub-Jub, the Spinster City Apartments, Springfield Pet Shop, and the one and only Disco Stu & Stu’s Disco!

And of course Bunnydud got our week started right with her funny post about how her addiction truly is costing her everything in TSTO! (Oh and there’s a great Sideshow Bob 2D in there as well!)

Happy Weekend Tappers!

It’s been just over a week now since Level 34 hit our devices. Tappers who started right away should be just about finishing up the Chalmers quest line and tappers who started the quest a little bit late might be smack dab in the middle of the Level. Either way, if you’ve been busy tapping away this week here’s your chance to catch up on what you’ve might have missed here at Addicts!

-Last weekend Wookiee helped Tappers discover the lost ride at Krustyland, Krusty’s Broken Koaster Kars. You can check out how to make Krusty’s Kars in your Krustyland here.

-This past week Wookiee and Nick took a deeper look at a couple of the new decorations level 3 brought tappers, starting with Nick’s look at the World’s Largest Zircona and it’s connection to The Simpsons. Then Wookiee took a closer look at Chalmer’s _onda, the newest car to join the Tapped Out World!

-Alissa started to break down the basics of the Conform-o-meter in your Springfield. You can find the basics here and how many points you’ll need to max out the meter here.

-We also took a look at some issues you may be having with TSTO in Losing your Jebidiah Springfield Statue and your game resetting back to level one!

-EA made a couple of updates and announcements this week as well. They released a minor iOS update earlier this week and announced that all tappers should be creating a Origin ID, or risk losing your Springfield forever!

-This past week also brought new updates to our Walkthroughs page, focusing on Level 23 and Bumblebee Man. Of course if you missed any of our level 34 updates you can find them on our Walkthroughs page as well

-In his “Are You Ready For Some Football” Nick made the connection between The Simpsons and football, in anticipation of the start of the NFL football season here in the US.

-Nick also took us back in time to 1999 as he uncovered the history behind Tomacco!

-Bunny Nerded out on us this week, in her Nerd Alert post, going over the finer technical details of things like Blue Stacks and Jail Breaking!

-As always there was certainly no shortage of 2D and 3D posts this week. Bunny took a look at 2D vs 3D and Wookiee announced a Wookiee’s 2D Challenge (be sure to get your designs in by Monday night!)!

-Finally, Friday saw the first meeting of TSTO Anonymous with group leader Wookiee! And Wookiee also took a look at what the Halloween update might look like!

It has been a week here at Addicts, full of great posts filled with humor and packed with information! Here’s to the week ahead Tappers, and here’s hoping we’ll see a Halloween Event this week!

 

Happy Tapping Friends!
