Surprise! It’s Been Five Months…

welcome-main

The package arrived in the early hours of morning, with slush and ice still doing their best to make the UPS driver’s life a  frozen hell. As there has been a crazy confluence of delayed Christmas deliveries recently, due in part to the horrible weather and an obviously overwhelmed Amazon and UPS/FedEx/US Postal staff (who from what I can tell, mostly work for Amazon these days anyway) I wasn’t surprised to get a delivery this late after the holidays.

Between Christmas, my birthday on New Year’s Day, and our 35th Wedding Anniversary on the 9th, there have been any number of reasons for my overworked UPS guy (who stubbornly wore shorts until the weather dropped into the low 20s), to show up with a package at my “home office.”

But, this one was different. I could sense it from the minute I picked it up. As I touched the box, there was an instant burst of cognition emanating from it that made me realize that my life was going to change for the better.  It seemed to glow in the light, with a luminescence that pulsed with a sense of possibilities for the coming year (or perhaps my vision swirled due to the extra 2 cups of coffee and having over-nuked the last of the Christmas cinnamon rolls that had reached a full week past the “best eaten by” label,” that I had consumed minutes before).

Whatever the reason for the halcyon glow,  I could tell this was something that was clearly “unexpected” and magical!

Showoff Announcement: Places of Worship

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Religious Proportions!  We’re getting read to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Places of Worship in Springfield!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The Next Showoff will feature your areas of Worship…of the Presbylutheran, Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist or Donut variety, so show us what you’ve got!  Send in your areas of worship designs from your Springfield and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post, featuring your designs, on SATURDAY January 21st 2017.

78954

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 January 20th. 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 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.) 

Should I Spend Donuts On Fr. Sean, the Sponsored Church, First Church of Lard Lad or Satan’s Anvil?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Sunday Morning in Springfield! Gather up those religions because Homer wants to sample them all! Like a religious smorgasbord…as long as Homer can still have the bacon!  Of course it wouldn’t be an event in Springfield without premium items in our stores, just tempting us to spend sprinkles on them!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Fr. Sean, the Sponsored Church, First Church of Lard Lad or Satan’s Anvil your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

In-Game Update: Great Phatsby Mini Episode Tie-in

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A super quick episode tie-in hit our games this afternoon.  This is for this Sunday’s upcoming 1hr episode “The Great Phatsby”.

This really is super quick…

If you don’t already have the Burns Summer Mansion (from Superheroes 2), you’ll have to build it. (for free)

Burns'_Summer_Mansion_full

That will be followed by a quick 6s task for Mr. Burns.

And that’s it…you’ll then see this message:

2017-01-11-19-02-33

And that’s it.  All I’ve come across anyway.  Really short, really simple.  Really just a reminder to watch on Sunday…and a nice way to get the Mansion if you missed it during Superheroes.

Oh and this update should fix the Princess Nerd questline issue for Martin and the Ice Castle.

That’s it my friends.  What are your thoughts on this super short task for Sunday’s episode?  Think there will be more to it?  Excited for a full 1hr episode?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
