Should I Spend Donuts on the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels?

The Season Premiere of the Simpsons is coming THIS Sunday on Fox and to celebrate the start of the 25th year EA has given us a mini update.  With the episode tie in update comes the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels, a limited-time premium decoration for your Springfield!  Now I’m sure you’re asking yourself, ‘Should I spend donuts on this?’ Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels and if they’re worth your donuts:

Higlowwaste
Decoration:
 Hi-Glow Waste Barrels
Donut Price: 40 Donuts
Unique?:  No
Bonus: 2%
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.05%
Conform-O-Meter Points: Vanity +400
Where Can I Place It?: On the main (grass or pavement) sections of Springfield only.  (No Squidport or beach)

Final Thought: At 40 donuts and a 2% bonus, it’s certainly not the worst investment you can make.  While I have added them to my Springfield I do think the Hi-Glow Waste Barrels are a large & somewhat weird addition to TSTO.  Although it makes perfect sense, since the town was blown up and all, but it’s just a weird object to try and place, at least in my opinion.  Normally this is something I’d say pass on, since the concept of the decoration itself isn’t that great and for the donuts paid/bonus % awarded there are better items you can spend your donuts on that will make a little more sense in your town.  However…this is a LIMITED TIME item.  Once it’s gone it’s gone and you can never purchase it again, so be sure to take that into consideration when making your decision.

What do you think?  Will you be picking up your Hi-Glow Waste Barrels before they’re gone?  Let us know in the comments below.

How Do the Season 25 Premiere Items Impact The Conform-O-Meter?

Well Tappers the Season 25 update has arrived!  EA was a little sneaky this time and had the update out in the wee early hours of the morning!  However, as true Addicts, we don’t sleep!  So Bunny was all over the update as soon as it was out with the complete walkthrough and introduction of the 2 new limited-time items.  You can check that out here.  But now let’s take a minute and see how the two new items will impact your Conform-O-Meter rating.

For those of you that don’t already know…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.  We’ve also posted about each of the 8 categories and how you can max them out you can view them here: Indolence, Consumerism, Tree-Hugging, Vanity, Obedience, Gluttony, Righteousness & Socialism.
