Addicts Spooky 2D Contest Top 5 Are….

Hi Diddly Ho There Tappers!

In case you’ve been living under a rock…or nuclear waste…for the last few weeks here at Addicts we’ve been hosting a Spooky 2D Contest where the winners receive free DONUTS (in the form of gift cards)!  You can find out all of the details here  And the time has come to announce the top 5 and winners of $0.99 gift cards (woohoo premium scratchers)!

First, we’d like to say thank you to EVERYONE who submitted a 2D design.  Your designs were AMAZING and we know for many of you it was your first attempt at a 2D design.  So great work everyone!  

We’d also like to say that just because you’re not mentioned in the top 5 doesn’t mean you’re out of it completely!  Don’t forget we still have Category prizes to award!  The Category winners will be announced when we announce the grand prize winner on October 15th!

We also plan on having more contests in the very near future, not necessarily 2D related either, so be sure to keep checking back for more chances to win great prizes!

We had a lot of AMAZING entries and had a hard time deciding on the top 5, but the Addicts team has finally decided on the Top 5 entries and they are….. Continue reading “Addicts Spooky 2D Contest Top 5 Are….”

20130823-194911.jpg

What a week’s it’s been at Addicts and in case you missed anything from the Addicts team this past week, here’s your chance to catch up!

First up…Don’t forget our Spooky 2D Contest!  Entries MUST be in by 11:59pm EST on Sunday 9/29/13.  So you only have today and tomorrow left…so get those entries in!

-Last Sunday Nick kicked things off with a discussion about the Season 25 Premiere of The Simpsons “Homerland”.  You can check out his post on it here

-Of course we can’t forget about the Season 25 Premiere Episode Tie-in update that was released this past Thursday.  Don’t forget this event is LIMITED TIME so be sure to get your Three-Eyed Sushi while you can!  We were all over this update, as always!  You can find the complete walkthrough here, if you should spend donuts on the hi-glow waste barrels here and how the new items impact the conform-o-meter here.

-Wookiee also brought us back to Level 33 over the weekend and talked about his favorite quest with Eddie and Lou.  Wookiee also brought us not one, but TWO late night revelations.  First, he talked about what he’d like to see in the Halloween Event, while he dodged the clown.  Then he discussed Three-Eyed sushi and poison, poison, tasty fish!

-Speaking of Halloween…EA surprised us all with a mini, Tuesday, update and let the cat out of the bag about the Halloween event (coming October 1st!).  We were all over the Feeding the Trolls Quest, you can read about it here.

-On Monday we asked you what you’re looking forward to the most Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving or something else.  Well the results are in and Halloween won overwhelmingly (79%), with Christmas in 2nd & Thanksgiving a distant 3rd.  Also, we had a suggestion in the comment section about a Hanukkah update.

-Bunny had our 2D covered this week with her awesome Bumblebee Man how to.  She also broke down why it’s not easy being green and why her 2D’s are green.

-Wookiee and Bunny broke down two Tapped Out Characters for us this week in Homer Simpson and Mr. Burns.  Check out these Exxxxxxxceeellllent posts!

-A bunch of gaming questions were addressed this week too!  We talked about easier neighbor management via the Origin download.  We also looked at how to tell if a neighbor is inactive and when to delete them.  We also addressed a how-to take screen shots for the most common phones and devices out there.

-We also completed the Conform-O-Meter posts and wrapped it all up with a neat little bow in the collected Conform-O-Meter post here

-Of course we had a great WAWW’s post this week all about Mansions in TSTO.  Wookiee also gave us a bonus WAWW in What some Tapperinos want .

And as always we updated some of the TSTO Walkthroughs this past week.  You can check out the Walkthrough page (which also got a face-lift) for help at ALL levels of Tapped Out!

It was a busy week here and looks like next week will be even busier!  Mark your calendars Addicts….Sunday September 29th is the Season Premiere of the Simpsons and Tuesday October 1st will be the Halloween Event update!  Addicts will have you covered every step of the way!  We’ve got some new, fun things planned for the site so keep checking us out!

Have a great weekend everyone!

New Info: Season 25 Premiere Update

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all enjoyed your Monday.  I know there has been some buzz in the Tapped Out world today about the Halloween update with the mini “Feeding the Trolls” update (Wookiee was all over this update today, you can check their posts out here).  The “Feeding the Trolls” update brought along a game files update.  I’ve taken a peek at the game files and while their are no spoilers or hints about the Halloween update just yet, some info has been introduced about the Season Premiere Tie-in!

It looks like this Thursday (EA’s favorite update day), September 26th, Tappers will be seeing the Season 25 update.  The update will include 2 new items that, I’m presuming, connect to the upcoming “Homerland” episode (airing this Sunday on FOX in the US).  1 of the items will be FREE, and it’s a decoration for your Squidport, and the other item (non-unique, so you can buy as many as your tapping finger desires…while supplies last of course!) will set you back 40 donuts.  The free Squidport decoration will unlock at the end of the Special episode tie-in quest!

Of course as soon as the updates hit the Addicts team will have you covered with all of the details you’ll need to know!  So mark your calendars this Thursday the Season 25 Premiere Episode tie-in update will happen and next Tuesday, according to the “Feed the Trolls” update, the Halloween event will begin!

In the meantime…be sure to finish up your 2D’s for our Spooky 2D Contest…where you can win FREE DONUTS!  Check here for all the details on the contest and to enter!

2D Lesson Numero Dos: El Barto

elbarto

Happy 2D Tuesday everyone!  Hope you’re all hard at work on your designs for our Spooky 2D Contest! We’ve already gotten a few submissions, but we’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of you come up with!  Don’t worry though you still have plenty of time to get your designs in, 12 days to be exact! For those looking for a little more advice on creating their 2D designs here’s another helpful 2D How To brought to you by the one and only Wookiee!  

Bunny brought you the basics of 2D. I just wanted to pop in real quick with a little more help.

Please don’t take this the wrong way but the honest truth about becoming good at 2D is practice, practice, practice. When I first started seriously, I copied images created by our very own bunny. Through trial and error. I slowly got the hang of how to do these.

To help you out, I found two images of Bart that are pixelated. Using these, it is not terribly hard to place the image in your town. As bart is a very popular character, I hoped this practice would inspire my fellow tappers.
