Springfield Showoff: Crook and Ladder

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”.

Crook and Ladder and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s getting hot in Springfield, as the Crook and Ladder¬†mini event has invaded our games for the last week plus bringing several ¬†new items to our pocket sized towns. With all of the new items ¬†added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings (especially since this might help you decide what to keep out & what to put into storage).

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 Crook and Ladder¬†brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a new items to add to our Springfield. ¬†Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Showoff Annoucement: Crook and Ladder

Showoff entries are now closed. ¬†Check out everyone’s entries tomorrow evening! ūüôā

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Crook and Ladder¬†designs! ¬†We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Fire inspired¬†designs! ¬†So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The Fire Event is heading into it’s final days…and many of you have been done for a little while, so we thought now would be the perfect time to showoff those towns!

Springfield Volunteer Fire Department 3

 

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure¬†to send your submissions in¬†by about¬†8pm¬†EDT Friday (4/15). Can’t wait to see what YOU¬†have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. ¬†We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots. ¬†We like to try and let¬†everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images. ¬†Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too). ¬†We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two. ¬†If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week. ¬†You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page. ¬†We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.¬† Remember, this isn’t a contest. ¬†There’s nothing to win. ¬†It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts. ¬†ūüôā ¬†¬†

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As with every event we’re starting to see the same questions asked over and over again in the comments. ¬†So, like usual, I figured one big Addicts Question Corner is a lot easier than me trying to answer every question individually in the comments. ¬†Plus this post should help answer some of the most common questions..even if you’re not asking them. ūüėČ

So without further ado I bring you the Addicts Question Corner…Fire Edition!
