New Year New You Update is Live! (The Rundown and What You Need to Know)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The latest mini-event in our pocket-sized towns, New Year New You, is now live!  Make sure you’ve downloaded the latest update from the app store to see it.  This update will turn the splash screen back to normal Homer running…so if you still see the Christmas splash screen, you haven’t updated.

Also, the snow hasn’t left Springfield.  This has happened a few times in the past, in 2013 the snow stuck around until Valentine’s Day and it was still around for Homer the Heretic in 2017.  So it’s not the first time…

You’ll need Homer free to kick things off, followed by 4hr task for Homer and currency earning tasks for Marge, Lisa, Bart, Wiggum, Quimby, Moe, Lenny, and the new premium character.  Also, Homer will have a currency earning task…

Details below the fold…

Oh, and, can I just add…there should be a comma between New Year and New You.  It should be New Year, New You.  For some reason, EA’s decided to forgo the comma….

Incoming Update-New Year, New You! (Available on the App Store)

Update: The Update is currently available to download via the App Store for Android and iOS. Fire you’ll have to let me know if you see it.  You may have to search your app store (under Tapped Out) to find the update.
Also, this update does change the splash screen but it DOES NOT remove the snow from Springfield.  So looks like the snow will be sticking around for a little while longer!
Remember, the update WILL NOT start for you until TOMORROW Jan. 20th.  So don’t panic if you download the update and don’t see a new event starting…
And those of you who were missing tasks…please let me know if this corrects that issue for you.  Thanks!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just wanted to let you know there is a new update on the server.  It hit about a half-hour ago or so.  So expect an app store update to hit within the next few hours….

That being said, the update will not go live in games until TOMORROW, January 20th. So don’t freak out that it hasn’t launched yet etc.  Just giving y’all a heads up that it’s coming.  The theme is the New Year…

It just isn’t Christmas without cults and crib-bound Messiahs. Luckily, Homer is home and safe from the Movementarians, and Baby Jesus is hanging with the Simpsons until King Herod gets over his hissy fit. Now it’s time for a normal Christmas full of mindless consumerism and hedonistic feasting, just as the Lord intended. We probably should have learned a lesson from all of this but who cares! Onward and upward!

More details as I pull files and the update hits the app stores…

P.S. The app store portion of this update (which isn’t live just yet) SHOULD resolve the character task issue….we’ll see what happens.

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!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by HondoRiley…

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com you never know when yours might be next!

Friday Filler- I Loved This Event, Until…


Thank Grog It’s Firday!


I’m writing this a bit early as we have my Mom’s service Saturday, and have a lot to do to prepare. So, I started doing notes on this, as the Clash of Creeds event was winding down.

I loved this event. I thought it was one of the best of the year, until…

This is where I wish I could cue the “Dun, Dun, Dunnnn” music that always plays when they reveal the villain in a cartoon. Three notes…that almost always signify dread. And for me, the weird, almost lost dialogue at the end of this event came far to close to real life events that have blown up over the last 10 days.

I am going to find it. Because I really need to use it to make my points. I mean, wouldn’t it be great if we had a warning when we are doing something stupid in life, that we either didn’t see coming, or we ignored the warning signs?

In so many cases, everything seems OK, until…

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

Springfield Showoff: Clash of Creeds/Christmas 2020

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. 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”.
