Simple Town Designs: Building a Go Cart Track

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So every once in a while, a period of TSTO downtime pops up and during that, tappers (ourselves included) begin a redesign (or design) phase for their Springfield.  This is something we love to see.  There’s nothing better than seeing tappers expressing their creativity and show casing different ways to build certain areas of Springfield.  That’s the beauty of TSTO!  It’s fluid and you never have to keep a design the same, unless you want to, for very long!  This allows for redesign after redesign and allows you to express your creativity!

Sometimes… we get comments asking for tips and design ideas when it comes to certain areas of Springfield.  While we do have a basic design guide here at Addicts (mostly just tips to get started), we thought it would be fun to create a series of posts based on different ways to design various areas of your Springfield.   Note: In no way do we consider ourselves “experts” at this design stuff, in fact MANY of you could teach us a thing or two about town designs.  These are just fun and different things we’ve come up with, inspired from our own minds or friends towns, to “spice up” our favorite virtual city!

For this edition, I decided it was high time to tackle a design in my B town I’ve been wanting to do for way too long.  It’s been a long time since I first saved this image, but credit goes to a tapper named nehash81.  I honestly don’t remember where I first saw this but my guess is on Flickr.  I’m thankful I at least wrote down the origin ID.  Inspired by this amazing Go Cart Track, I went through it step by step for anyone interested in placing something similar in their towns.

Diary of a Wookiee: Building an Airport/NARA Launch Facility

TSTO Space: the semi-final frontier (provided EA keeps adding land).  This is the voyage of your resident fuzzball.  His one post mission: to explore a design idea, to seek out why he doesn’t have a life or civilization (as in the descriptive idea of being civilized), to boldly go where let’s be honest a lot of people probably have gone before.

Still chuckling at myself for that pathetic attempt to start a post about town design and wondering why this Deep Space Homer Event has me all nostalgic for the famous opening lines of Star Trek.  I’m going to blame watching “Deep Space Homer” (S5:E15) and laughing at Barney and Homer during their astronaut training.

Anyhoo… this event has been fun for me so far but getting to the point of this post… all this new NARA stuff has me itching to go over the idea of building your very own airport in TSTO.  If that sounds as good as astronaut ice cream to you, go ahead and click more.

Addicts How To: STITCH ME UP DOC!! (2 POVs regarding TSTO Stitching)

In our little world of addicts, it is fun to be able to see and share our individual ideas and designs with other fellow addicts. There are so many ways possible of doing this, but before we can start…some of us need a way to “stitch” our pictures together to show the entire design area due to we can only zoom out so far in the Simpsons Tapped Out game. In this post, we will show you an alternate way you can do this yourself.
