Addicts Question Corner: How Can You Tell If a Neighbor-eeno Is Worth Deleting?

TSTOSimpsonsneighbors1
Hi Everyone!

Here’s a question straight from our comments from Addicts reader poisonshift:

What is the most effective way to discern from users who are viable and stink accounts?  I know ‘things’ happen and maybe a person won’t play for a day or two and it is someone bothersome to keep a tally of 100 neighbors…”

First of all, thank you for the great question Poisonshift!  I thought it was such a great question that it was worthy of it’s own post, since it’s a question that’s not covered nearly enough in the TSTO World.  Typically we discuss how to delete neighbor-eenos, but not how to tell if they should be deleted.  Here’s my take on it… Continue reading “Addicts Question Corner: How Can You Tell If a Neighbor-eeno Is Worth Deleting?”

Why Can’t We Be Friends: Breaking Down the Socialism Rating on the Conform-O-Meter

Ah neighbors..those pesky people with out whom you’d have no power tools to “borrow”.  And in TSTO they’re the friends you can’t reach 5 stars with out!  Your social interaction with your neighbors plays the main role in your Conform-O-Meter Socialism Rating.  So by being the social butterfly and having neighbors and visiting them regularly you improve your Socialism rating & you’re that much closer to maxing out your 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.

So just how does the Socialism rating work?  Let’s find out…..

Is It Better To Vandalize or Leave My Neighbor’s Buildings Alone?

Every time you visit a friend’s town you’re presented with a decision… ”Should I ‘tag’ their towns or tap their other buildings?” Your Angel or Devil on the shoulder moment if you will.
There are currently 4 buildings in everyone’s town that can be ‘tagged’, or spray painted. These buildings are:

-Springfield Elementary
-Springfield Police Station
-Town Hall
-Moe’s Tavern

While most buildings accumulate income and allow you to reset the income timer by tapping on them when visiting a neighbor, however the four buildings above do not generate any income of their own. In order to have a payout from these buildings you must clean up the spray painted mess a neighbor has created. In return your neighbor gains cash and XP for both vandalizing and cleaning up your town for you.

Before you get your tapping finger locked and loaded to hit those spray cans, let’s review some Pros and Cons on Vandalizing a neighbor’s town… Continue reading “Is It Better To Vandalize or Leave My Neighbor’s Buildings Alone?”
