Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Springfield Enlightened Event. And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update) I will admit, this caught me completely off guard. I was expecting a week off…and honestly looking forward to one…but EA (as usual) had other plans in store for us!
As a little inside TSTO baseball: I will say, thinking about it, this does totally make sense to start up now. You’ve got this 2-week mini-event, which ends July 28th, then a week off and a 5-week major event likely to start on August 4th. That will likely run until Sept. 8th…and that’ll give you a week off, followed by a two-week mini-event, and another week off followed by Halloween starting around October 6th. Of course, this is just my suspicion…and it lines up well for this…but we’ll see what EA actually does.
Anyway…running through the game files now, I’ll be back in a bit with more info on this post once I have it. For now know that you’ll need Homer and Moe free to run 6s tasks, which will trigger the prize track and new items in your store. At that point you’ll need the Barflies free to do the mini-event currency earning tasks.
I’m not going to go so far as to say that EA/Gracie always get it right. Far from it.
HOWEVER… this game continues to evolve…EA continues to listen…and the best part of it all (when compared to other mobile games), it JUST KEEPS KEEPIN’ ON!
I’m really not sure how many of you play other Mobile Device games. I admit to being pretty limited. Mostly because almost none of them hold my attention. I’m not into “Shoot ’em up” games, or games that require loads of time each session. But, more important, I am not a fan of games that get “stuck” in one mode…and bore me.
I am going to ask a very specific question…and I am asking the good folks at Gracie Films/Fox, and specifically Matt Groening… “Why In The Hell Did You NOT Choose EA for your Futurama game?” I get it for Family Guy. After all…Seth McFarland likes to “be different” (while mostly copying other shows for his content). But, Matt…you have a good thing going with EA and Tapped Out…what made you flip to Tiny Co for Futurama??
I can’t imagine it was the answer to that question might be. But the much touted, “Futurama Worlds of Tomorrow” should be renamed to “Futurama…not much future tomorrow.”
But, this isn’t about piling on to Tiny Co. This is a post about the recent things that EA has done, to prove that they still care about the game, and the best choice for Tapped Out. Even if they make us nuts once in a while! Continue reading →
UPDATE: As of April 2019 the information about saving Land Tiles no longer applies. Once you’ve earned as many tokens as available land it will convert to earning cash/xp. No matter how many land squares you leave open.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So a quick PSA about the Golden Goose Realty….
I know it’s super exciting to finally have the ability to get ALL of those land tiles! Feels like we’ve been waiting forever. And it’s even better that you can speed up the building to unlock land even quicker! However, I would caution you not to unlock ALL the land tiles.
It’s Really Important to Keep 1 Land Square Open/Unpurchased. Once you’ve unlocked ALL the land the Golden Goose Realty will no longer earn land tiles, it will revert to cash and XP (until new land is released).
You’re better off leaving at least 1 land square open so you can continue to earn (and build up) land tokens.
And when you’re ready you can convert your land tokens to donuts. 1 land token=12 donuts. This is done via the store (once you’ve purchased all open land)…
Shoutout to Jason for the images of the donuts in the store and the cash payout of Golden Goose and kamikaze1963443 for the image of the message in-game the appears when you’ve unlocked all of the land tiles.
Which sounds great, but remember once you unlock the ability to convert land tokens to donuts you can no longer earn land tokens.
So do yourself a favor, don’t unlock all of the land and continue earning as many land tokens as you can.
