Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Once a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Level 35 and the Conform-O-Meter

I know I still owe everything the rest of the Conform-O-Meter break downs, but with the release of Levels 33, 34 & 35 so close together it’s been hard to get all of the info out to you in between updates.  I promise more details will be coming soon!  Today,however, I wanted to talk about Level 35’s impact on the Conform-O-Meter.

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

The Level 35 update has introduced 4 new buildings, 4 new characters, 3 new decorations & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield.  At Level 35 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter:

Level Indolence Obedience Consumerism/
    Gluttony
35    440    260     240/276
Tree-hugging
     /Vanity
Righteousness Socialism
16945/27020        146     1344

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘How will the new buildings/decorations help me max out?’  Well, here’s how:As you can see, Level 35 has increased the Indolence Rating requirement (+10, 1 more house), the Obedience Rating requirement (+10), the Tree-Hugging Rating requirement (+1,130), the Vanity Rating requirement (+1,600) & the Righteousness Rating requirement (+8).

Item Cost Category Points
Popsicle Stick Patty & Selma $8,300 Vanity 550
Popsicle Stick Disco Stu $8,300 Vanity 550
DMV Limo 50 Donuts Vanity 500
DMV $240,000 Obedience 10
Disco Stu’s 180 Donuts Obedience 10
Spinster City Apartments $391,500 Obedience* 10
Springfield Pet Shop 90 Donuts Obedience* 10

*The game files are showing both the Apartments and the Pet Shop as contributing to Obedience, however my own experience is that the Pet Shop did positively impact my Consumerism rating.  With the apartments I did notice my Indolence rating drop slightly when the game updated, and remained slightly dropped after the apartments were down.  So it is possible they do contribute to Obedience instead of Indolence (like Krabappel’s apartment & Springfield Retirement Castle).  Once I built 1 brown house my rating was back to 5 stars. 

Let us know how your Conform-O-Meter rating is doing!  Are you maxed out?  If not, what area currently needs a boost?

Monday Poll: Are Patty & Selma What You Expected?

250px-Loan-a-Lisa_-_billboard_gag
For as long as I’ve been playing Tapped Out I’ve been seeing/hearing other tappers wanting EA to release Patty & Selma in the game.  So now that they’re finally here, after all this time, I want to ask my fellow tappers…was it worth the wait?  Were Patty & Selma what you expected?  Or do you think EA could have done a little more with the update?  Let us know in the poll below…and if you have any follow up comments feel free to leave them in the comment section below!

 

Disco WHO??!!

Level 35 just dropped on us and brought with it a few new characters. This brings the question… why Patty & Selma with Disco Stu and Popsicle Stick People? What’s the connection? In this post, I will be focusing more on Disco Stu and his connection with it all. Well…kinda. 🙂
