Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather your friends, call your neighbors…or just roll your eyes as I write another one of these intros…it’s update time in TSTO! The long-teased Krusty event is upon us!  While this is a mini-event, and really nothing like we thought it would be when first teased, it’s a new event in our games!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Krusty’s Last Gasp Online questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the final prize of this mini-event…Sideshow Lisa…

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Musings About Krusty’s Last Gasp

Happy Musings Thursday my friends!  This week, as Krusty’s Last Gasp is winding down, I figured I’d do a musings post about my overall thoughts on the event.  Usually, I wait until the event is officially over for my thoughts on it, but in this case, I think most of us are finished with it…and I want to save next week for some thoughts about potential Halloween updates (teaser for next week’s musings).  As I wonder how many more gasps Krusty has left,  I’ve got some thoughts, so let’s get to ’em…

Showoff Announcement: Krusty the Clown

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and with Krusty’s Last Gasp nearing the end, it’s time to show us what you’ve done with all the new stuff!   So this time around I want to see what you’ve done with anything and everything Krusty! (This can be items from Krusty’s Last Gasp, items you previously had as they relate to Krusty…Krusty’s Mansion, Krustyland, Krusty Burger, etc.  Anything, as long as it relates to Krusty!  We’re going to give Krusty one big last Gasp!)  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

As always please remember to limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole town, unless you want to send in your entire town via town portrait.

So use this time to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Krusty the Clown inspired designs (by 8pm ET Tuesday, September 24th) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, September 25th. 

Remember, your designs can be anything as it relates to Krusty, this can include…Krusty’s Last Gasp Items, Kamp Krusty, Krusty’s Mansion, Krusty Burger, Krustyland, etc.  Feel free to show us your favorite stuff as long as it relates to Krusty the Clown!

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Tuesday, September 24th, 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.)

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!

When we can, 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!

Friday Filler – When is Copyright Actually Copywrong?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

Wow…what a surprise! Every time I do a “Designing In Downtime” post…it seems to bring on an UPDATE!!!  You guys can take up a fund to pay me for my wasted time on those…if only to thank me for shaming EA into regular updates.

So…it looks like we have a pattern. And the pattern is a bit boring. But, it is clear that this game is now all about the writers, and not about some new way that EA programmers can make the game interesting. Writing- good!  Gameplay-boring.

But, I have to say…that a piece of the dialogue really caught my attention, and rung a little too close to home this week. The whole issue of copyrights in the digital age is only going to get more complicated and muddy, and has created a whole new genre of “slime-buckets” in the world of litigation…the Copyright Troll.

I wish I could say that I have never had to deal with these vermin…but even as I write this, I am in a battle with a Troll and their slum-bucket lawyers, over something that ran for three days back in 2015, on a test post.  Gotta love it.

But, it is a clear warning to anyone in this digital age of “sharing” that you really do need to know the law…and be prepared to do battle with trolls, if you get caught “borrowing” an image, or a song, or a video.  “Sharing” is one thing…re-use is another…and KRUSTY may very well be headed into a TON of TROUBLE!
