Springfield Showoff: Pin Pals

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 find ourselves sometimes 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 ūüėõ ) 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. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our¬†“SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Where Did THAT Come From – Jacques & Fiesta Terrace

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Pin Pals and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today the Pin Pals¬†mini event¬†is slated to leave our Springfield’s, so I thought now would be a good time to look back at how all of the items added (new and old) for this mini event¬†impact our Conform-O-Meters.

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.

While the Pin Pals mini event¬†brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a few new and old buildings and decorations. ¬†So let’s take a look at how all of the “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Pin Pals Coming to an End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a friendly reminder that the Pin Pals¬†mini event is set to leave our games tomorrow morning. ¬†So finish up that prize track. ¬†Make sure you grab everything you’re looking at from the stores (including Jacques and the Pin Pals), because come tomorrow morning¬†it’ll be gone.

Remember, once the timer runs out you’ll no longer be able to purchase the items or complete the prize track. ¬†You won’t be able to delay the timer on this one, since it was part of an in-game update not an app store update. ¬†So be sure to get everything you want and finish the prize track (Pin Pals questline) BEFORE tomorrow morning, otherwise you’ll miss out.

Need a reminder about what was included in the store for this event?  Check out the rundown post here.  In addition to the rundown post you can find our Should I Buy coverage of the premium items here.

So what’s next? ¬†Well if EA continues to follow their pattern of updates, we should expect to see a major (app store update required) event this week at some point. ¬†OR (as I’ve theorized) we may see some kind of Spring Cleaning sale this week to get us into next week (and then a major event will hit). ¬†¬† In reality, no one (except EA) knows what’s going to happen next and when it’ll happen. ¬†So for now let’s all just sit back, relax and wait to see what happens…

Oh and don’t forget to work on those Bowling designs for our Springfield Showoff this weekend

What were your thoughts on the Pin Pals¬†mini event? ¬†Ready for what’s next? What do you think we’ll see next? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Turbo Tappin’ Pin Pals Premium Questline: Pin Pal Moe & Pin Pal Burns

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well time to live life in the fast lane because we’ve got ourselves a Pin Pals Bowling Mini Event in Springfield! ¬†That’s right our pocket-sized Springfield’s have gone to the gutter….the bowling gutter that is…as we set em up to knock em down with this Bowling event!

As with all updates these days, we’ve got ourselves a couple of new premium characters to roam the streets of Springfield. ¬†And like all premium characters, the Pin Pal themed ones come with their own questline to work our way through. ¬†This questline is separate from the main questline (which unlocks the prizes). ¬†These premium questlines are just something fun to work your way through to introduce the character to Springfield.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the turbo tappin’ version of the premium questline for Pin Pal Moe and Pin Pal Burns…

Simple Town Designs: Rooftop Bowling

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we’re knee deep in the Pin Pals Event, with loads of fun prizes and premium buildings! ¬†With this mini event I can’t help but notice we’re once again left trying to make room in our Springfields for items that typically belong inside! ¬†In particular the Bowling Lanes. ¬†I don’t know about you, but where I come from Bowling Lanes are typically INSIDE the Bowling Alley…not outside.

Often, when we’re faced with items that typically would go inside, many tappers would simply stick these items in their inventory and never think of them again. ¬†It can be fairly daunting to find room and a decent design for these types of items. ¬†But, in this case the Bowling Lanes earn a bonus % AND are required to complete certain visual tasks for Pin Pal characters. ¬†So what’s a Tapper to do?

Use a little perspective to create¬†some fun bowling alley designs of course! ¬†So, there’s no better time than the present to share with you all another Simple Town Design all about those Bowling Lanes….
