Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Destination Springfield Removal is Live in App Stores…

UPDATE: It appears that EA has released another update removing the tourists from the store. Not sure if it’s an attempt to fix the bug detailed below or if they weren’t intended to be in the store at all,  only time will tell. For now,  please don’t panic about not seeing them.  They’ve disappeared for everyone,  me included.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Destination Springfield/Around the World removal is live now in App Stores.  So if you’re looking to remove the event officially from your games download it now…otherwise you can keep collecting pins/sky credits until EA forces you to update (remember it’s borrowed time…).  Here’s what’s referenced in the app store:

What’s interesting about this (and we’ll have more breakdown on this) is the reference, once again, to Military.  This was also referenced when the Christmas Event was removed….

Beyond that, there are few changes.  One funny one is some incorrect wording in dialogue:

So yes, you can purchase Tourists (60 Donuts) BUT there’s something screwed up with the coding.  So hopefully EA will jump in a fix this shortly.

Another change is, if you’ve purchased Sailor Kumiko she’ll now have a Sailor Kumiko specific questline.

And that’s it my friends!

Final thoughts on Destination Springfield? Will you be grabbing the tourists? What do you think is coming next? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

Should I Spend Donuts On Planebot?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Pack your bags and prepare for an invasive screening at the airport because it’s travel time in Springfield! And while our towns are embracing their ever expanding airports, our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of world items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Planebot to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Planeformer to your Springfield…

Around the World is Nearing the End… (& Info About Norbert’s Plane & What to Craft)

A Quick Note: There’s a glitch right now for many of you with Norbert’s Plane.  You’re unable to get it.  There’s a thread about it here on EA’s forum and a few of you have mentioned that you’ve contacted EA about it.  EA has advised some of you that they will be releasing a patch to resolve this issue.  I have not spoken with EA about this, so I’m just going off of what some of y’all are telling me. My best advice is to contact EA, let them know you’re impacted as well.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Around the World Event Ends TOMORROW March 7th.  (I just realized I made an error on my time from yesterday, it appears it ends at 9am ET, 2pm GMT)

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

TSTO Anonymous: Tourists… why’d it have to be Tourists

Hey howdy hey skyfingers!

With the Destination Springfield Around the World Eventcoming to a close, I figured it wasonce again time for another meeting of TSTO Anonymous. Welcome! What is TSTO Anonymous? Well, it’s our version of a support meeting (said with my tongue in my cheek) that has turned into a nice thing we do occasionally just to give folks a positive message, some silliness, or a place to commiserate. You can find previous meetings here. While these meetings don’t happen as frequently as a fuzzball would like, I can always plug the the Sunday Open Threads as fill-in sessions when I can’t think of topics or life/game stuff is too busy to hold one. Jebus knows you Addicts like to congregate and chat about all sorts of stuff. Anyhoo… it’s time to fire up the simulated coffee pot, prop the door open with a lucky red hat, and get this meeting started. Pull up a chair, grab a Wookiee cookie, and let’s get this show on the road.
