The Final Countdown Is On for Deep Space!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that the Deep Space Homer Event is set to leave our games tomorrow (0700 GMT, 2am EDT).  So if you’re still working on the questline to earn those prizes, better put it into hyper drive because it leaves in the morning!

Along with the prizes the items in the store will also be leaving…so if you’re thinking about getting Barney, do so now before he’s gone!  Need a little help weighing the pros and cons?  Check out our should I buy post on him here. (you can also check out the should I buy on the carbon rod here)

Oh and don’t forget to get your 5 FREE DONUTS via the Deep Space Easter Egg.  If you haven’t done it yet you can check out the details here.

So what’s next for TSTO?  Well we’ll have to wait and see what EA has in store for us…but for now I wouldn’t put Homer or Lisa on any long tasks.  I’d also avoid sending any freemium characters on 24hr tasks….just in case.

What are your thoughts on the Deep Space Homer Event?  Did you collect all of the prizes?  Buy any premium items?  What do you think we’ll get next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Deep Space Homer and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s Blast Off time in Springfield, as the Deep Space Homer mini event has invaded our games for the last week plus.  With several new items hitting our games, as well as a few returning back to Springfield.   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 Deep Space event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s time to get our space on, as Deep Space Homer has hit our Springfields!  Like all events, it’s not without it’s share of premium content and characters.  Of course those premium characters wouldn’t be complete without a questline!
