Sci-Fi 2016 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Sci-Fi Event released a bunch of new items into our Springfields.  Everything from a hover cards to new fangled Kwik-E-Marts to mushroom towers to evil labs!  So let’s take a look at how these new and items impact our 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.

While the Sci-Fi event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Sci-Fi Event Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Sci-Fi Event Ends TOMORROW September 20th.

BUT just because the timer is running out doesn’t mean the Event will immediately leave your Springfield.  It will take an App Store Update to remove the Event from our towns.  And it’s likely that update won’t hit until later in the day on Tuesday.

However, as we’ve been seeing with the last few events, it’s entirely possible that once the timer runs out you’ll most likely no longer be able to earn Act 3 Prizes or Craft Act 3 items for free.  So to be safe, get everything you can before it’s gone!

Also, the premium items WILL be leaving the stores when the timer runs out.  Those are on a specific timer and will leave the store when their timer runs down.  So if there’s a premium item you want grab it before it’s gone.

As far as what is going to happen AFTER the Event…

Showoff 2nd Reminder: Sci-Fi/Future (EXTENDED)

Due to popular request…i’ve decided to EXTEND the deadline for Springfield Showoff.  Now we’ll run the Showoff on September 24th…so several days after Act 3 ends.  Hopefully this gives the rest of you enough time to finish your town designs…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Futuristic Proportions!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Sci-Fi/Future inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

Now that we’re winding down Act 2 of the Sci-Fi event , it’s time to showoff your towns.  So send us your Sci-Fi inspired deigns and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on SATURDAY September 24th…so you’ve got over a week left to prep your towns.  Take your time and design as you see fit! 🙂

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Friday September 23rd. Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post (or this post from last week) or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Sci-Fi Event Act 3 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast. It’s just after 3am on the East Coast of the US…but who can sleep with Stephen Hawking conspiring to take over our Pocket-sized Springfields with an army of deranged Robots?!  Act 3 of the Sci-Fi Event is upon us….so have at it my friends!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Hawking will start this for you with dialogue from Stephen Hawking and the Robots.  This will be followed by a task to play the Sci Fighter game and defeat Mecha Hawk, the newest Robot. (I’ll warn you it’s not as easy as you think.  Some details below).  This will then be followed by a 4hr task for Hawking at the Polyvac.   Oh, and you will have to complete the Act 2 questline (Smack to the Future Pt. 10).  So if you didn’t complete it yet, you won’t see the new questline.

Act 3 runs until September 20th

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…
