Hmmm, I do appreciate EA for anything free they give us, but overall…I was disappointed in the tie-in to Homerland. There was literally NOTHING explained. NOTHING TRA LA LA. So…thanks FOX for giving us something I apparently need to drive to Boise and go to a con to find out about. 🙂

Here’s a quick hit about the premiere episode of the Simpsons. As soon as it has aired on the west coast here in the US we’ll have some great recaps for you.
So what do Three-Eyed Sushi and Hi-Glow waste barrels have to do with the Season 25 premiere of the Simpsons? (Note: Don’t click more if you don’t want an episode spoiler) Continue reading “Addicts Quick Hit: Season 25 Premiere”
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.
Anyway back to the Season 25 Premiere items…. Continue reading “How Do the Season 25 Premiere Items Impact The Conform-O-Meter?”
The “mini-update” has dropped in the weeeeeeeeee early mornin hours…good thing Bunny’s floppy ears were to the ground listening…Here we go…(Special thanks to Alissa for having majority of this typed up. Made my extra dialog/pic posting a breeze. TEAMWORK!!)
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 1
Lisa will just start the task automatically
Lisa: Wow, Dad. What are you doing up so early?
Homer: Getting ready for work.
Lisa: But you rarely ever go to work. At least not on time. Or with – what’s the thing on your face – a smile?
Homer: Yep. I’m smiling because for two glorious days and one even more glorious night, work isn’t actually going to be work. It’s going to be a convention!
Lisa: What’s so great about that? What happens at a convention?
Homer: Uh…nothing. Just work. It’s really boring. Now where’s that inflatable gorilla wearing women’s underwear that I ordered?
Make Homer Wait for the Mailman 12hrs
Keep Lisa free when complete
As soon as you complete the first dialogue, the High-Glow Waste Barrels will be added to your Premium Stuff for purchase. (40 Donuts). Multiplier of 2.00% bonus money and XP to all jobs. It is a 3×3 square in size and about as high as Springfield falls. . The animation on it does make the barrel on top rotate around.
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 2
After tapping Lisa
Lisa: The convention’s in a couple days, Dad. Shouldn’t you be packing?
Homer: Good idea. I’ll start with my convention supplies. Ball-point pens, notepads, business cards…
Lisa: Okay, Dad. I’ll leave you to it.
Homer: Great. See you later, sweetie! Now to dump this crap and put in my real convention supplies. Champagne, animal tranquilizers, superhero costume….
Make Homer Pack for the Convention 4Hrs
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 3
After tapping Homer
Homer: Well, I’m all packed.
Lisa: Four bags? You’re only going away for a night. How much clothing do you need?
Homer: Oh, right…clothing. I should pack some of that as well.
Make Homer Re-Pack for the Convention 4hrs
Homer: Woo-hoo! This is going to be the greatest weekend ever! I’m going to feel like crap on Sunday!
And you will to, if you miss the Simpson’s 25th Season Premiere. This Sunday at 8/7c on FOX. And to celebrate the premiere, a FREE decoration for your Squidport has been placed in your inventory!
At this point, you can now go into your inventory box and retrieve the Three-Eyed Sushi. It is place-able in your Squidport area only. It is on a 4×4 square and about the height as other shops. The animation on this one is Blinky…well…blinking. 🙂
And there you have it…complete with pics. I have my DVR set to record this Sunday’s episode. Season 25 Premiere! CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Last thoughts…just how big do these new items look in comparison? Hope this helps.
Wow… busy day, eh? Lots of words put out there today by myself and other bloggers. Amonst all the screenshots and commentaries, we got some great info about the Season 25 Episode 1 tie-in decorations. You can read Alissa’s take on them here.
With word of Three-Eyed Sushi for Squidport and Hi-Glow Waste Barrels (Nature Tested… EPA approved), hopefully I wasn’t alone when I went off to the web (JUST LIKE LISA) to see if I could find more info on these other than what the TSTO datafrakers could find. (spAndex has a great pic of these decs if your interested)
Seems these decorations are purely from the episode which hasn’t been released yet. Some creative folks have made images previously connecting Blinky with sushi so it’s not exactly “original”, but what ever is? I can tell you one thing though, my furry behind will be firmly planted in my wroshyr treehouse for the Season 25 premier to see these items and how they fit.
