Addicts Want to Know: Gil Results and A New Poll About Updates….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we asked you guys if you took Gil up on his offer..and you guys loved giving your opinion!   Now, we’ll get to the results of the Gil poll shortly, but first I want to know when YOU think the next update will hit!

Many of you have been asking in the comments when the next update will hit.  Of course we don’t have a crystal ball, and only EA knows when they’ll drop the next update…so all we can give you is our best guess.  So we want to know what YOUR best guess is….because it’s always fun to speculate! 🙂

Make sure you let us know why you picked what you did in the comments below 🙂

Now let’s get to the results about our dear friend Gil…. Continue reading

Addicts Want to Know: Next Game Results and A New Poll About Gil….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we asked you guys what FOX Animation show YOU would most like to see get the next mobile game…and as I suspected you guys overwhelmingly picked your favorite!   Now, we’ll get to the results of the game poll shortly, but first I want to know if Ol’ Gil has presented you with an offer you can’t refuse.

Yes, Gil’s back in Springfield and this time with a donut of a deal, but is this deal worth your cash?  I want to know if you still have a soft spot for Gil and helped him out or if you said “forget it buddy!”:

Addicts Want to Know: Nuke Results & Some Fun….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we asked you guys if you were planning on nuking your Springfield.  This week we wanted to share those results with you, but also have a little fun with a new poll!

We’ll get to the results of the nuke poll shortly, but first let’s have a little fun.  We all know Fox already has two mobile games based off of their Animation Domination, TSTO & TQFS.  Here’s what the Addicts what to know…what OTHER shows from Animation Domination (current or over) would you most like to see a game based off of?  If you don’t see your answer in the poll, feel free to mention it down in the comments below:

Addicts Want to Know: To Nuke or Not To Nuke….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it would seem as if we’re in a bit of a summer lull in Springfield.  With the Yard Sale not bringing any new content, beyond Mayan Marge, for many Tappers…we’re all starting to feel the lull in game play.  In my opinion these lulls have ALWAYS been the perfect time to work on some redesigns of Springfield.

During our Sunday Night Open Thread this past week, several of you commented that you’ve taken advantage of the Nuclear Option and are taking advantage of the lull & completely redesigning your Springfield.  While others expressed concern  for wiping out their whole town.  So here’s what I want to know….

 What are your thoughts on the nuclear option?  Have you pushed the trigger yet?  How do you feel about the lull in the game right now?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Psst…if you’re looking for a little inspiration in the design department you can check out our Design page here OR the AMAZING work of your fellow Tappers over on our Flickr Page 🙂

Simple Town Designs: It’s All About Perspective

Hey Hey Hey Addicts!

So the nuclear option came back in TSTO and it got me jonesing for a redesign in Wookieetown.  While my finger IS hovering over that button, I’m not ready yet but it did make me consider my town and things I liked vs. new ideas I may have. I know some of you might be in the redesign (or design) phase for your Springfield so I thought I might share some pics with you to maybe provide inspiration.

We get quite a few comments asking for tips and design ideas for Springfield. While we do have a basic design guide here at Addicts (mostly just tips to get started), we thought it would be fun to create a series of posts based on different ways to design various areas of your Springfield.   Note: In no way do we consider ourselves “experts” at this design stuff, in fact MANY of you could teach us a thing or two about town designs.  These are just fun and different things we’ve come up with, inspired from our own minds or friends towns, to “spice up” our favorite virtual city! 

For this edition, we’re going to look at PERSPECTIVE.  Basically taking items in your town and making them look different than intended.  It is one of my favorite things to do and I thought I’d share.  Without further ado… let’s get started.

A squid walks into a port and says….

Wow, if that was actually a joke it’d probably be one of the dumbest ones ever… kind of like one Horatio McCallister would tell at Floppy’s. (“The Bart Wants What it Wants”, S13:E11).

You must be the change you wish to see in your Springfield

How ya doing Tappers? Hopefully good. Wookiee here with yet another post about my lastest redesign journey.

Bet ya didn’t know that Ghandi loved TSTO too, eh? Well, he probably would not have enjoyed the violence in The Simpsons but today’s post isn’t about non-violent civil disobedience anyway (Sorry Lisa, maybe next time).

What I wanted to talk to y’all about is the concept of a REDESIGN. With Halloween looming in the very near future (Oh me, oh my, 2-ish days…Woohoo!), you may have wondered what you are going to do with all the new things you’re bound to be getting. The easiest answer is to redesign your town and/or buy more land.
