In-Game Update: Red Alert

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Holiday Whodunnit Event.  And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)  The first new event of 2022!

You’ll need Homer and Lisa free for 6s tasks to get things started with this event.

This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on February 2nd. 

More details below the fold…

App Store Update: Red Alert Mini-Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry, this is going up a bit later than I would have liked.  Just now finally getting a chance to sit down and look at everything.  

As I mentioned on this post, there’s now an app store update available to download for TSTO.  This update won’t remove the snow, as I thought it might (probably just wishful thinking…have I mentioned I hate snow?)..instead this update brings the game files into your game for the next mini-event in TSTO…Red Alert!

So it was the sentient Christmas tree that attacked Santa? But why? Just because the holiday is responsible for the deaths of millions of his brothers and sisters? Oh… I guess that’s why. Anyway, it looks like justice came home for Christmas this year. Now that Santa is in the clear and the Tannenbaums are behind bars, we can get back to enjoying the true spirit of Christmas – gathering around a fire and yelling at our loved ones.

This mini-event is not live yet, and won’t go live until 9am ET on Wednesday January 19th, 2022…but downloading the update now will help make sure you don’t miss out on the update once it hits our games tomorrow morning.

For those who like a little more detail, here’s what you can expect character-wise with the event…

Snow PSA

Update #2: Update is available via the App store.  It’s entitled New Years 2022, so we’ll see what’s in store for us.  And apparently, EA has decided not to remove the snow with this update.  Go figure.  If I hadn’t given the warning the snow would be gone…seriously can’t predict what they’re going to do.

Update:  And just like that there’s an update in the files…should be hitting app stores soon.  So capture those snow pictures while you can!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly PSA reminder that the snow should be leaving our Springfields very soon…likely today.  The next app store update, which hasn’t hit yet…but I expect it to hit today…should remove the snow from your Springfield.

So if you want to preserve how your town looks covered in the white stuff grab all the screenshots you can now! And feel free to share them with your fellow tappers in the comments below!  One last goodbye to snow as we prepare to welcome the green grass in once again!

If you need help posting screenshots/images in the comments, we have a post on that!  You can find that info here.

I’ll be back if/when an update hits our app stores!  For now enjoy the snow while it’s still around!

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

The Sounds of TSTO: Holiday Whodunnit

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.

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

Springfield Showoff: Holiday Whodunnit

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. From time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small, and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.
