SHOWOFF REMINDER: Watcher In The Woods

So while we are all around awaiting the arrival of new content, I figured it would be fun to play around some more in my B town. I have been working in it off and on. Designing groupings and areas at a time.

While working on one section, I found I wanted a lil more inspiration. I think it is almost done, but want a few finishing touches to complete it. Since I draw inspiration from others, I decided this would be a could topic for this weeks Springfield Showoff.

Here is my wooded area. It is a combination of “Olden Times” on one side and “Futuristic” on the other. I really wish they would bring back the Fort Sensible so I could have it in my B game too. I have it in my A game, but want it in the B game as I think it would work great with the Mayflower. (Yes, Bart set half the place on fire. Lol.) Click on the photo to open it in a separate screen and see all the lil details tucked into all the corners.

Now, I want to see what YOU have done with wooded areas. Did you make a trailer park? Campground? Creepy haunted forest? What buildings did you use? Kamp Krusty, Lincoln’s Cabin, Brown Houses, Guinea Pig Rescue Center? SHOW ME!!!

Springfield Showoff: SHOW ME YOUR BOATS!

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”.

Should I Spend Donuts on- The Mayflower

With all of the new Thanksgiving premium items it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Mayflower to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this store to your Springfield.

themayflower_menuDecoration: Mayflower
Donut Price: 100 Donuts
Unique?: Yes

-3.00% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.
-The sound of canons firing when you tap on it. The flags whipping in the wind.

-Not associated with any characters or tasks.
-Fairly expensive for only a 3.00% increase to your overall net.

Final Thought:
I personally just REALLY like just the look of it and that for me is reason enough to buy it. However, If you’re saving your donuts for something with more options and “bang for your buck”, save them for something else (Casino comes with a character and tasks). So unless you’re a completest or you want a giant ship for your Squidport, I think you would want to wait to buy this as EA lists it as a “NEW” item and not limited. So you have time to think.

Where Did THAT Come From- Mayflower

I REALLY like the giant ship floating in my Squidport now. EA made me very happy in this decoration. Yes, it does cost a lil bit of donuts. But it looks SOOOO cool. Now for what you came here to find out. Where in the Simpsons world did the Mayflower come from?
