Monorail 2016: Where Are My Rail Yard Donuts?! (or Monorail Stations)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

First, let me apologize this is going up later than usual today. It’s been a bit of a crazy day…

Anywho, the recent Monorail return has turned TSTO players into two groups of people.  Those that have the Monorail and those that don’t.  And we’re seeing LOADS of questions from both groups.

Those that have the Monorail want to know Where Are My Rail Yard Donuts?!  Or Is EA Really Getting Rid Of My Rail Yard Donuts?!  This is usually followed by threats from some of you, you know who you are, to stop playing TSTO if they take the Rail Yard Donuts away.  (which we all know is an empty threat, because you’re a TSTO Addict, just like the rest of us 😉 )

And those that are working on getting the Monorail for the first time want to know How Do I Get the Other Monorail Stations?!  Which of course is usually followed by some comments about envying them in a neighbors town and wanting a massive Monorail.  (of course those of us that all ready have the Monorail know that a massive Monorail isn’t necessarily a good thing, just look at how long it took me to load Pimp’s town in this video)

Of course, as with all sides of any issue, there are always those of you are are in between.  You played the Monorail Event and you missed a couple of things (mainly the Rail Yard) and you want to know how to get it back.   For those of you with this particular issue, I recommend contacting EA.  Because it should popup for you.  So if it’s not, something is certainly wrong with your game.

Oh and still those are those of you…in all groups…having issues collecting trash from the Dump.  This is a KNOWN glitch.  EA is working on it.  I don’t have a time frame for a patch, but hopefully soon.  Fortunately, this is NOT a timed Event.  This is a permanent addition to our games, so there’s no need to panic.

Now, after that crazy long intro, let’s take a look at the answers for those of you screaming…WHERE ARE MY RAIL YARD DONUTS?!  Or WHERE ARE THE OTHER MONORAIL STATIONS?!!

Everything You Need To Know About the Monorail

This post is meant to be an overview for new players when the unlock the Monorail.  It’ll give you the quick ins and outs, and how to of the Monorail.  For more posts and details check out these links:

All Posts About the Monorail
Monorail Event Page, links to every post written about the 2015 Monorail Event

Before I get into the details of the Monorail, let me first say as of this moment on July 26th, 2016…there is a BUG/GLITCH going around with this little update.  For some of you you are unable to use your Springfield Dump to collect junk.  This is going around, although not everyone is impacted many of you are.  Best thing I can tell you to do at this point is contact EA.

Oh and for the older players…before you freak out about the donuts missing from the Rail Yard…let’s wait and see what happens in the coming weeks.  Don’t run around like chicken little…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So the Superheroes Sequel update brought something many of you have been requesting back to Springfield…a genuine bona-fide electrified six-car monorail!  That’s right now EVERYONE has a chance to get the famous Springfield Monorail in their pocket sized Springfields!

So here’s the deal, this post is really for those of you who missed the Monorail Event or played the event but never got the Rail Yard.  Those of you tappin’ pros who’ve had the Rail Yard for awhile now this isn’t the post for you.  You already know how the Rail Yard works..and most likely you’ve got an extensive track collection in your town already.  So for those of you whom already have your Rail Yard and tracks, consider this your “down time” in TSTO.  Spend it reorganizing your town and working on your Rail Yard tasks to earn the Tunnel.  And just hang on tight until the next big thing hits us…

For those of you who are new to TSTO, or those who just don’t have the Monorail yet…let’s break it all down for you.

Superhero Removal Update is Live!

Update: Some of you are reporting having issues collecting trash from the Dump.  You’re also reporting that Homer cannot collect trash.  Both the Dump and Homer should work.  Check to make sure Homer is free, and you’ve progressed through any Monorail questlines in your task book.  Also, make sure you’re not full at the dump.  It only holds 2,000…so if you’re over that it won’t work.  If you’re still having issues, contact EA.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to remove the super from Springfield and return things back to normal…well as normal as things can be in our pocket sized Springfields.  The removal update is live in our App Stores now…all devices

Remember, if you’re not quite ready to remove the update from your game you don’t have to.  You’ll get some extra time before you’re forced to update…just remember, you’re playing on BORROWED time.  Once the force update hits you’ll be locked out of your game, no matter where you are in the prize track (or bonut collection) but you update.

Here’s the new teaser from EA in the removal update…

For those of you who have updated, details about what you can find in the update are below… Continue reading

Monorail is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Update: A Patch just game through (around 5:30pm EDT) that fixes the Conductor Homer Glitch.  So you should be able to tap away without issue (ie crashing) now. Note: HOMER CRASH ISSUE…..DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER.  You MUST complete more tasks before Homer will work.  So again DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER. (i.e Do not do the Train of Fools Task)  If you do your game will crash…just be patient and wait….the game will guide you, it always does.  I’m working through it myself as fast as I can with super slow internet at work…thankfully it’s on Android now so I hopefully can move a little faster. See below…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s FINALLY here!  After over a year and a half of waiting (remember Homer teased it way back in Jan of 2014) it’s finally Monorail time in Springfield! monorailappstore This is an APP STORE UPDATE so remember to check your App Store/Google Play Store to download, as it will NOT automatically download in your game for you.

As of 12:20pm EDT it’s currently live on iOS, we’ll update when we see it on other devices.

As of 1:05pm EDT it’s currently live on Android.

As of 1:50pm EDT it’s currently live on Kindle Back with more in a bit…just needs to download on my super slow work internet 😉

Homer should auto start things with a task to build the Springfield Dump (which is Free)…after the Dump is placed nothing else will appear in the store until you complete Same As It Ever Was (which comes after A Rail of One City Pt. 4)

2015-08-11 17.12.37 Oh and there’s NEW LAND Available (thanks for pointing it out Tapebelt!) two new strips!  Details are below…. Continue reading
