The Real Housewives Of Springfield: Luann Van Houten

Welcome Addicts to a new addition to our posts. In this little game of ours, we tend to forget those characters that are few and far between. We get so involved in the game, so into the latest events…that we sometimes forget to pay attention to the little things. The little details that make the Springfield world go around. The thing that seems to be really lacking/missing from Springfield.

What exactly is it I am going on about? What is so terribly important to the game that would draw such attention. WOMEN OF COURSE! To be a bit more specific, The Real Housewives of Springfield (and maybe a mistress or 3. Gotta have the drama aspect in any series, right?).

So keep your eyes on our blog as we take you on a new journey into the lives of each of the women currently and NOT currently available in the game.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Addicts Blast from the Past: Building A Better Springfield

This was originally posted back in early September 2013 but we thought some of the newer Tappers joining after the Halloween Update could use some insight on just how to build a better Springfield.

Envious of your friend’s Springfield’s? Wish your Springfield looked as cool as theirs? Well, we’re in-between updates right now, so while there is a little lull in the game why not consider reworking your town to build a better Springfield?!

Here’s the Addict’s Guide to Building a Better Springfield:

It’s All Good In The Hood: Consider The Neighborhood

House farming does have its perks, if you do it right. While I’m not a house farmer myself (come on EA give us more houses!) I do have neighbors who are. When done right house farming can make your Springfield look like it has nice neighborhoods where people would want to live. Don’t just stick houses here and there around Springfield, and don’t stack them all up on top of each other either. Consider your placement of each house, and how it will fit in a neighborhood setting.
Tip: Keep all of the ‘special houses’ together (Flanders, Simpsons, Wiggum, Skinner, etc) and keep the other houses together, in multiple number (Purple House, White House, Brown House, etc).

Location Location Location: Consider What Your Central Springfield Is

Your Central Springfield is the part of your Springfield that shows up the moment you and your friends open your town. First impressions are everything, so you want to have a really great Central Springfield that will make your neighbors want to look for more! If you don’t have an exciting Central Springfield your friends might not get excited to see the rest.
Tip: Some people like to put the Simpson’s house in the center of their Springfield, while others prefer a part or Town Hall. Try to put your best decorated building/decoration in your Central Springfield and keep up with it. You really want something that’s going to wow your friends!

Hardscape/Landscape: Consider Your Landscaping

Try to landscape each building. Think about how it would look in real life and be creative!
Tip: Check our our 2D design page for more ideas!

What’s In A Theme: Consider A Theme for Each Building

Think:  ‘If this building existed in real life, what would it look like” and try to create a theme around that thought. For example, Kamp Krusty would be in the woods surrounded by trees, water, and maybe some cabins. So design your Kamp Krusty area to include a lot of trees and shrubs, a river or lake, and maybe through in some Brown houses for the cabin look!
Tip: Keep up with the theme you’ve created for each building. Landscape when you can, and try to keep it in line with your design plan.

Park It: Consider Building A Park

Try and think outside the box here. Don’t just stick use buildings everywhere to take up space.  Utilize the decorations available and make a park. Use the table, gazebo, swing set, monkey bars and all possible trees and other forms of flowers and greenery to create a dedicated Springfield Park. Hey EA even gives you a Springfield Park sign to help make it happen!
Tip: Keep a theme to your park, and dedicate areas of it for specific things. For example keep the Monkey Bars, Swing Set, and Seesaw together to create a play area of your park! 

Be A Simpsons Addict: Consider How Springfield Would Look

Follow The Simpsons a little bit and try setting your Springfield like it would look on the show!  It’s fun to see how things are on the Simpsons in relation to where you put them in your Springfield!

Should I Spend Donuts on the Cracker Fountain?

Level 37 is here and with it comes the Southern Cracker Fountain, a new premium decoration for your Springfield.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Cracker Fountain and see if you should add it to your Springfield:
Decoration: Southern Cracker Fountain
Donut Price: 30 donuts
Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want
Bonus: 0.75% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.025%
Conform-o-Meter Points: 300 Vanity  
Where Can I Place It?: The Southern Cracker Fountain can be placed on the grass and pavement of Springfield and on the Squidport Boardwalk.

Final Thought: At 30 donuts the Cracker Fountain isn’t the most expensive premium decoration, and the bonus payout isn’t that bad.  It’s nice that it can be placed on the boardwalk, however it’s the kind of decoration that really only works in one place & that’s with the Southern Cracker Factory.  It’s a nice decoration to add to help decoration the premium building, but it seems like it’s the only place it really fits.
There are other non-premium fountains you can purchase in the game for the same features.
My advice is to skip this one, unless you have a ton of extra donuts to spare.  It’s one of those odd decorations that really only “goes” in 1 place, and in my mind just not worth the 30 donuts.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 30 donuts for the Southern Cracker Factory?

Wondering if you should spend donuts on other level 37 premium items?  Check out these posts:

Turbo Tappin’- Level 37 Kirk Van Houten Questline

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A couple of weeks ago we asked How Do You Like Your Walkthroughs?  Where we wanted to know if you preferred quick, “non-spoiler” walkthroughs, the full detailed walkthroughs with dialogue, or a combination of both.
While the full detailed walkthroughs was the overall winner of the poll, a combination of “non-spoiler” and full detailed was a close second.  So, armed with that information, we’ve decided to introduce our Turbo Tappin’ walkthroughs!  We will still bring you the full walkthroughs, with dialogue, but these Turbo Tappin’ guides are meant to be a quick review of the level and who to keep free and when.  (Note: In the future the complete Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough will be posted before the full dialogue walkthrough is up)

So let’s Turbo Tap Level 37 and Kirk Van Houten’s Questline:
