Wow. What a week. Trials, and finger pointing, and loss of righteousness…and that’s just what happened in our little world of TSTO! I love the fact that TSTO is always here, as a distraction from the insanity of the “real world.”
But sometimes, it seems that the “real world” encroaches on our “happy place,” and we end up “losing our shirt” over something someone says or does.
This has been one of those weeks. And, man…did it make me feel old and tired. Continue reading →
As a long time Simpsons fan, I found myself in the unenviable place of being a “talking head” on a “hot topic” and not making myself completely clear during the last “Addicts Live.” If I was running for an elected office, I’d be toast. However, at the ripe old age of 64 10/12th old, I can assure you that I have undeniably said and done things that would/should have eliminated me from ever holding a public office. Of course, the rules of comportment and decency in public office have changed drastically. And that, in a sense, is exactly what I am writing about today.
I am angered by reports of Apu being removed from the Simpsons. There are myriad stories around this, none of them clear. The primary reason, is that those in charge at Gracie and Fox are pretty much taking a “we already handled this” approach to the whole controversy that has erupted around the documentary, “The Problem with Apu,” without actually handling it!
Level 39 is finally here! (and comes with TWO FREE DONUTS) Working through it right now (thank goodness I have my tab since my phone says it’s full!) and as soon as we have the details we’ll post them right here (as always)!
Remember this is an in App update so no need to hit the app store! If your update doesn’t start right away…if you’re at Level 38, Level 39 should automatically hit….try the usual troubleshoot methods (hard close, reopen app, restart your device) that should help trigger it.
Dolph kicks off this update, so make sure this bully is free! (yes he must be free. It’s not an auto-start)
Also remember…as with all new updates…your Confirm Donut Spend Button may have been reset. Meaning it’s turned off. So check it out and make sure it’s switched to on…unless you want to end up with 2 Whales…. 😉
As always for those who like to be surprised we’ll reveal the details after the fold….so what follows are SPOILERS Continue reading →
So I’m sure we all agree that we would like some new houses instead of perpetually creating doubles of the ones we have to flush out our Evergreen Terrace. I decided to feature homes for people we already have plus a couple extras. These additions actually shouldn’t be too hard to add as most Simpsons homes basically look similar. NOTE: I am not computer programmer so I completely wrong about this. Without further ado here we go…
Quests start right after the video of Homer blowing up Springfield Ends -Square One
All dialogue spoke by Homer here:
“Hello, anybody here? Huh. I guess it’s true what they say about atomic blasts—the safest place to be is ground zero. I wonder where my loving family is…and Bart. Task book is then highlighted. Whoa, whoa – if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s when you open books, bad things happen” Prompted to build the Simpson House, 6 seconds.
Must build the house within the shaded box. If not Homer says “I think I should place it where the computer tells me”
Homer: “Lisa! Thank God you’re here to guide me through this tutorial.”
Lisa: “ What happened?”
Homer: “Difficult to say sweetie. The town blew up, I built our house and you showed up. All we know for sure is, I’m completely blameless.”
Lisa: “Hmm. Maybe if we keep building things, Mom and Bart will show up too.”
Homer: “I’m sure they will. This thing would be way too sad if they didn’t”
Lisa: “Then let’s do it. But first, we should clean this place up a bit.”
Homer: “You’re joking right?”
Springfield Cleaners Pt. 1 Despite his objections, Homer cleans up some of the debris left by the explosion (6 seconds – don’t make him clean up everything – just one piece is enough for this stage.)
Springfield Cleaners Pt. 2 Lisa joins in the Springfield clean up (6 seconds, Lisa finds a donut)
Lisa: “Hey, I found a donut!”
Homer: “It looks like one of the donuts from the break room.”
Lisa: “It must have been irradiated when the plant blew up. Now it has the power to locally speed up time…as well as to buy things, for some reason.”
The New Evergreen Terrace Pt. 1 Build a road (prompted by Lisa)
Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart Build the Kwik-E-Mart (prompted by Homer. Note: you’re asked to use some of your donuts to speed this up)
The Others Frink appears from the Other Springfield and tells you to pay a visit there. Visit the other Springfield by following what Frink says. You’ll collect some extra cash and XP.
The Box, The Box! Starts with the Daily Play Combo appearing. Homer wants to speed it up to get to the Mystery box. You’ll have to spend 6 donuts to get a Mystery Box. Mystery box contains 10 donuts.
Soylent Bean Lisa goes shopping at the Kwik-E-Mart (Prompted by Lisa 1hour)
Thank Ganesh Apu prays to Ganesh (45 seconds)
Working Hard Homer or Lisa need to clean up Springfield a bit more (if you’ve cleaned all of your debris, you’ll need to buy more land)
The New Evergreen Terrace Pt. 2 Build the Brown House (prompted by Lisa)
The Mysterious Brown House Pt. 1 Homer breaks into the Brown House and watches TV
The Taxman Cometh Collect money from houses
The New Evergreen Terrace Pt. 3 Move the Kwik-E-Mart because it doesn’t really belong next to the Simpsons’ house. You’ll then be prompted to build the Flanders House (90 seconds)
Shopaholic Collect money from shops (just the Kwik-E-Mart at this point)
Green Thumb Plant trees (Lisa initiates this task, so make sure she’s free. You’ll need to plant at least 3 trees in order for this quest to be complete)
Donut-denominated Decorations Place Homer’s Hammock
That Ain’t Right Ned condemns science (45 seconds)
Hardly Working Place the kiddie pool (it costs $100)
