Update Info (New Years 2020)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a heads up, there is a new update on the server.  This is (likely going to be) an App Store Update.  This will remove the Christmas splash screen…and possibly the snow. Not for sure that it’ll remove the snow, but good chance.  So take a photo of your town (via Town Portrait) while you can, to preserve its appearance in the snow.

From what I can tell, this is likely a mini-event.  That will run from tomorrow (Jan 15th) to Jan 29th.

It’s bath and bedtime for the little Addicts, so I’ll possibly have more info for you on this later tonight after they’ve gone to bed.  For now know that there is an update coming.  So there’s something to be excited about! 🙂

Light SPOILERS Below the fold… (Oh, and before you ask…because I know you will, I do NOT see the Golden Goose coming back with this one)

UPDATE: Yes, it is, in fact, an app store update.  And it does, in fact, remove the snow. So take a town portrait shot before updating…

Here’s the app store description:

Abe’s in Toyland is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Abe’s in Toyland Event Ends TOMORROW January 8th. 

We’re well into the New Year.  The Wise Men have arrived.  It’s time for Christmas to end.

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Christmas Update Is Coming!

Update 8:15p ET: Update is out on iOS..again, just the download from the app store, it’s not live in-game.

Update 6:50p ET: Update is out on Android…just the download from the app store, it’s not live in-game.
The immediate thing I noticed..they still haven’t fixed the freakin’ noise on startup, even if your sound is off. Unbelievably annoying!
Another thing I noticed…the splash screen is a little wonky…at least on my S10.  Not sure if it’ll be the same on iOS when that comes out…

Anyway, here’s the update description from the store, and there are more screenshots below the fold (to prevent those who don’t want to know from knowing…)

Update: Just getting this out of the way now so all of you who are going to gripe about it can gripe about it before it actually hits…this appears to be another 4 week multi-event.  Starts tomorrow, ends January 8th.

Also, please don’t complain and say this event already sucks, or it’s the worst event until at least week 2 of the event.  And I especially don’t want to see/hear people complaining about it before it even goes live in games…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A bit of good news, and holiday cheer, for all of us….the Christmas update has hit the files! Everyone let out a collective sigh of relief…

This will likely follow the same pattern we’ve seen with updates…it’ll hit the files now, hit the app stores within a few hours (maybe even within 30 minutes), and then go live in-game tomorrow (Wednesday).

We have NOT received update info from EA, at least as of right now, but I’ll start working on pulling the files to see what’s incoming.  Any info I find will be updated on THIS post.  So check back often for updates!

Until then….“Snow. Snow. Snow. It won’t be long before we’ll all be there with snow”…

More screengrabs form in-game below the fold…

THOH XXX is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Treehouse of Horror XXX Event Ends TOMORROW November 20th. 

It’s about time Halloween finally left Springfield…we’re only about a week away from Thanksgiving…

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Simpsons Babies is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Simpsons Babies Event Ends TOMORROW September 4th.

Update Incoming: Flanders Family Reunion

UPDATE IS LIVE! You will have to download the Game of Game Takedown from the app Store before you see it.  So head to your app stores and check for a Tapped Out Update.
This is not a major event, just a mini-event.  But it does require the app store update to see…basically changes your splash screen back to regular Homer running…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I’m a little behind today, got stuck in a few meetings, but just saw that an update for the Flanders Family Reunion has hit the Game Files.  This means that it’s incoming, but not live yet.  So please don’t panic that you don’t see it in your game…it’s not live yet.

I’m just now getting a chance to run the details and will update as I see appropriate.  We have NOT received an update package from EA, which tells me this is a mini-event.  Also, the fact that the end date is July 31st…

The weird thing is it was supposed to have started already…about 2 hrs ago.  And it’s not live yet, so not sure what’s going on.  But I’ll keep you updated as I learn more…

Update: Some basic info as to what’s incoming…
2 new Buildings
4 new characters (2 premium, 2 non-premium)
3 new decorations
Also, it looks like we may see some donut “deals”
And returning items that are mostly already available in Yearbook Box.

Because I know you’ll ask…I don’t not see the GGR returning with this one.

Game of Games is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Game of Games Event Ends TOMORROW July 10th.

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

The Real Moms of Springfield Mini-Event is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Something I haven’t said in 35 days…it’s update day in our Pocket-Sized Springfields!

If you’re having trouble getting the event to start, first make sure you’re at least at Level 15 (as that’s the requirement), then try hard closing and restarting TSTO.  This should be an in-game update, so an automatic download. Nothing else for you to do.  If you’re still not seeing it try uninstalling and reinstalling TSTO. 

Yes, if you saw the news yesterday, the Real Moms of Springfield mini-event has arrived in our towns!  Not only do we get a new mini-event, but it appears that this update has also fixed the Amazon zoom issue as well!

Things kick off in Springfield with some dialogue between Ruth and Marge, followed by 6s tasks for each.  This will be followed by more dialogue and the event launch.  For the first part, you’ll need to complete a 4hr task for Marge and collect 150 “Crappy Mother’s Day Gifts”.

This mini-event ends on May 29th (10am ET, 1400 UTC)

It’s May 14th, So Where’s the Update?

Update: There is an update on the server!  Looks like it’s in-game (you should see it download in your game), called Moms of Springfield.  I’m pulling files/images now…but…

Amazon Users…it looks like they attempted to make a fix.  Let me know if you see any difference in your game.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I assume a bulk of you are looking for information about the update that was promised by Matt Selman over the weekend…

After all, it’s May 14th so what’s going on?!

Here’s what we know… Continue reading
