Here are my suggestions to maximize earnings: -For Open Air Stage have Hans Moleman do his 24hr task and let it be so neighbors can tap away to earn you bonus Cash and XP
-For Channel 6 (if you have him) setup the Arnie Pye 2 day News Report and let it be so neighbors can tap away. (if you don’t have Arnie Pye, go with the 24hr task)
-For Cletus’s Farm obviously the best one is Corn, but alas Corn takes 90 days (and who has time to wait!) However, if you’ve already got Corn almost ready in your town (or Moonshine, or Triffids if not) let it be so your neighbors can tap away for you. Imagine the earning potential on corn!
-For Squidport make the tile as normal and again let it be so neighbors can tap away for you!
Remember when you go back into your Springfield be careful to tap each handshake carefully. And don’t clear them away until you’re happy with the number of handshakes over your task.
To help our favorite Addicts maximize the earning potential of the “Tapping Glitch” we’ve setup a board at the Addicts Forums where you can add your origin ID and let neighbors know when you have items ready to tap!

On Cletus’s Farm one of the plants you can grown and harvest is Tomacco. Such a strange name Tomacco. Just what is Tomacco? How does it relate to The Simpsons? To find the answer we’ll have to travel in Frink’s time machine, and party like it’s 1999! Time to travel back to Season 11 and episode 5, E-I-E-I-D’oh. Continue reading →
We’ve all been there, or seen a neighbor there. Forgot you were growing a crop on the farm and walked away for too long only to come back to a bunch of dead crops! It’s a pretty crummy feeling, especially because you have to pay money to grow crops. Almost as if you just wasted good money for a pile of junk, should have grown weeds!
So just how long do you have to walk away from the game, until a crop dies? Well the answer is pretty simple:
Weeds- 45 seconds to grow, 45 seconds to wilt (if only real weeds died this fast!)
Perfection- 45 seconds to grow, 3 seconds to wilt (stupid Perfection!)
As you can see, Perfection is the biggest pain in this game and dies quick. So my suggestion is if you’re going to plant Perfection watch it grow so you can harvest it right away…otherwise you might be cleaning up a dead pile of flowers!
Afraid you’ll be away too long to Harvest a crop? Well if you have some kind neighbors they can always click on a wilted crop and help bring it back to life. Remember to be kind to your neighbors, if you see their crop has wilted help bring it back to life–and they might just return the favor for you!
A common question comes up among new TSTO players whenever they see the grow list on Cletus’s Farm, and that’s ‘What happens when you grow Triffids? Why does it say End of Humanity? Will it end my game?’ (ok so that’s 3 questions)
Don’t worry, Triffids are not going to wipe out villages like the plague, and I promise it won’t even end your game! Humanity will be just fine, well for one more day anyway. If you decide to be brave and grow Triffids all that will happen is you’ll gain a lotta xp after the 12 hours are up, however they do not yield cash. To prove to you it’s safe to grow them, here’s a screen shot from my town just this morning after my Triffids were ready to be harvested: So if you’re thinking growing Triffids be brave, take a deep breath and push the button! Then relax and while you gain xp!
