Showoff Announcement: Love, Springfieldian Style

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re a little over halfway through the Love, Springfieldian Style Valentine’s Day Event, and it’s that time.  Time to show us what you’ve done with all this stuff!  With a TON of content…including Future Items, Shelbyville Items, and a Train Station…I want to see what you’ve done with all this stuff! How you’ve incorporated it into Springfield, and if it’s all working for you.

So prep those towns, because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!  And it’s always so helpful to see what others have done with all this new stuff!   So send us your Love, Springfieldian Style inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019…so you’ve got nearly 2 weeks (including TWO weekends) to get your town to your liking and send in those shots!  (Feel free to use the Town Portrait feature…just remember to crop your image to show the area of Springfield you’d like to highlight.  This is not the post to showoff your entire Springfield :))

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET MONDAY, February 18th, 2019.  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.  🙂   

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.) 

Viva Springfield: Share Your Casino Inspired Design Ideas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Viva Springfield…the Casino update has arrived!  With all new Vegas inspired buildings and decorations it can be pretty daunting trying to find the prefect place to put everything.  So I thought what better way to help design your Casino area of Springfield, then with input and shared ideas from each other!

So post screenshots of areas you’re working on.  Something you’re particularly proud of, something you need some input from others on or just something you’re completely lost on.  Have fun and share ideas with each other, that’s what makes the TSTO Addicts community so great!

Personally I’m working on my own Vegas Strip in the lower section of my Springfield, on the new land added with this update.  I’ve already added a Monorail “stop” to the strip..and hope to build it up more as I unlock more casinos and decorations…for now here’s what I’ve got:

2016-02-28 01.53.13

Like I said it’s a work in progress.  I need more stuff.  But I’m slowly working on it.  I’ve got the general idea of what I want to do so far…

Oh and a heads up…we’ll be doing a Springfield Showoff of the Casino update in the coming weeks.  So start laying out those towns and getting them prepped for their glamour shots!  We’ll put up a post when we’re ready to start gathering your images for Showoff, so for now just keep designing.  (please don’t send them in now, they’ll just get lost in the shuffle)

3D 101: The Mega Prison

What’s up Addicterinos?  How’s Level 38 treating you?  Feeling burdened by all the “legal” stuff that came with it?  Yeah… me neither.

Love them or hate them, every country has its very own Legal/Justice system and it really should be no surprise that our very own Springfield is no exception. Sure there may be only 3 cops, one lawyer and one judge right now, but there are no fewer than 6 characters that can spend time in jail or prison.  With that ratio, I’d could see the potential for Springfield’s Justice System to become overburdened and I thought I’d take action.  You’ve probably seen this before, but here’s my Springfield Mega Prison….

Insert shameless plug from the Addicts here: The Adipose TV

Note from Alissa: (I promise I won’t be hijacking everyone’s posts from now on) Just about 11 AM here on the East Coast of the US and no update to report of yet.  Thought for those of you enjoying the bright, green Springfield again you might enjoy some design ideas for your TSTO Houses.  Check out this great post from Wookiee and share your designs with us on our Flickr page, in the comments below, on Facebook or via email (TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com) and you never know…you just might be featured in our next Springfield Showoff post! 

Hello Addicterinos!

In the TSTO Blogosphere, there is a lot of information out there for all to enjoy.  While Addicts has you covered with lots and lots of words, there are some amazing folks out there covering all this amazing Simpsons game stuff with video blogs containing lots and lots of words lol.  My favorite of these VBloggers is the one and only Adipose.
