Springfield Showoff: Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na DUFF STUFF!!

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to.

So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

What’s up guys and dolls?  Alissa scheduled this and I thought it’d be fun to show her I picked the lock on the attic.  This week’s submission has me rolling on the floor laughing my proverbial donkey off.  I love all the images you hilarious readers keep sending us.  It’s so refreshing that in a community of “addicts”, there’s not a boring nut among you.  Ok… I’m at danger of rambling so let’s return to your normally scheduled post.

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather weird things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Once a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!
(This week’s Caption This image was submitted by Addicts reader bloemfonte647…also his Original ID *hint hint*)

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com or post it on the Addicts Flickr page, you never know when yours might be next!

Thanksgiving Day & Black Friday Updates- UPDATED (Again)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s Thanksgiving Eve and did you really think EA would let Thanksgiving go by with out some kind of holiday tie in?  This year it looks like we get not one but TWO holiday events.  The first tomorrow, on Thanksgiving Day, and the second on Friday, Black Friday here in the US!

From what we can tell from the game files, it looks like FREE DONUTS will be the reward on Thanksgiving and on Friday it looks like Ole’ Gil will finally make his long awaited Duff Promotion appearance in the game!

Sorry for those of you hoping for a Gil donut deal (maybe soon?)  looks like this is an offer the Duff Brewery, Springfield Sign and cash (will cost you 300 donuts).  Here’s the promo info we could find in the game files:

Note: If you already have either the Springfield Sign OR the Duff Brewery this offer WILL NOT appear in your Springfield.
As is our customary deal we won’t post information about the update itself until it actually hits.  Once the update hits the game (should be sometime Thursday November 28th) we will update all of the details on this post.  So be sure to check back for more details later!
Until next time Tappers!
UPDATE: The Thanksgiving bonus is live in the game!  Should auto start for you with a Happy Thanksgiving Message!  Be sure Homer is free!
Note: I play on both a Android phone (my A game) and an Android tablet (my B game).  For my A game, on my phone, it started right up.  However, on my B game, tablet, the quest didn’t auto start.  I had to back out of the app and hard close it (close apps) and restart TSTO.  So if you don’t see it auto start for you try hard closing and restarting the app. 
Dialogue and mini walkthrough:
2013-11-28 09.09.12 2013-11-28 09.09.58
Happy Thanksgiving Pt. 2
Auto started
Homer: Oh my God!  We go three donuts just because of what day it was?  I wonder if we could reset the clock on our device, then when the machine thinks it becomes today again, we’ll get another three donuts!
Lisa: Wouldn’t that be cheating?
Homer: No, cheating is when you press a bunch of buttons and get unlimited ammo.  This is hacking!
Make Homer Reset the Clock on his myPad-8hrs
Happy Thanksgiving Pt. 3
Auto start
Lisa: That took you a long time, Dad.  Normally when you play with your myPad it’s just for a couple seconds.
Homer: I know, but I get confused when I have to go into the settings menu.  What the hell is a DHCP?  And how much is it costing me to lease it?  The good news is I was able to reset the clock.  Now the game will think it’s Thanksgiving again in 3…2….1…
2013-11-28 09.09.12 2013-11-28 09.09.58
Homer: Woo-hoo
Happy Thanksgiving Pt. 3
After tapping Homer
Homer: I can’t believe that trick worked.  Now we can get unlimited donuts!
Lisa: But Dad, that would be unethical.  Besides, wouldn’t it ruin the fun of the game?
Homer: The fun of always having to wait 24hours?  The fun of not being able to afford things?  The fun of not being able to grow crops because my corn still needs 50 days?  Screw fun — I’ll take the unlimited donuts.  And more importantly, I can post a video of me doing it on the Internet and get like a zillion views!  Finally people will realize I’m a genius at computering!
Make Homer Post his Hack on the Internet– 1hr
Happy Thanksgiving Pt. 4
After tapping Lisa
Lisa: Wow Dad, your “How to get Unlimited Donuts” video is getting a lot of hits.
Homer: I know.  Move over “Puppy on a Piano” — there’s a new Most Watched Video in town!  I’m an Internet Celebrity– and that never goes away!
Lisa: The only problem is, the popularity of your video is sure to attract the attention of EA.
Homer: Uh…
Lisa: I bet they can put out a patch that fixes that problem pretty quickly.
Homer: Uh…
Lisa: In fact, I bet they’re doing it right now.
Homer: AUGHHH!!! Where’s my myPad?!  I’ve got to get my donuts!
Make Homer Reset the Clock on his myPad– 45seconds
Gil: Hey folks, Thanksgiving’s over!  Which means it’s a salesman’s favorite of days…Black Friday.
Homer: Oh no, they fixed my hack.  And even worse, Gil’s here.  I hate this stupid game!
Lisa: There’s probably a lesson to be learned in here about cheating.
Homer: There sure is.  If you do it, don’t post it online until you’ve fully exploited it for yourself.
Lisa: That’s not what I meant.
Homer: I wonder if I could have still selected “Reset the Clock” from my job list when my quests was “Post Hack on the Internet”?
FYI: No you couldn’t. 
At this point if you don’t already have the Duff Brewery and the Springfield Sign Gil will show up with his offer as indicated above.  If you have 1 (or both) of those Gil will not appear in your game and you’re Thanksgiving and Black Friday quests are complete.
Hope you enjoyed them!

Wookieecorp brings you… DUFFMAN

So, a couple people have asked me why I am so in to 2D.  Other than the fact that the art gives me enjoyment, I really do feel it adds a certain something to a town.  I love art period and this is just one more type.  It is a real pleasure to see what people can create using such strange items.  My latest go at this was Duffman.  As always, it all starts with an image.
