Easter and the Conform-O-Meter

Update April 2015: The Easter Event for 2015 added one new item to our games, the rest were returning from Easter 2014.  The Easter Island God was the one item added for 2015, and to check out how it impacts the Conform-O-Meter check out the details post on it here.

For the remaining items check out the details below from last year’s event…

Well Bunnies have invaded Springfield and you know what that means…it’s wabbit hunting time!  With all of the new items (and there are a TON of 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.

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 Easter event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, level 39 did though, 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:

New Buildings:

Item Cost Category Points
Johnny Fiestas Won Gluttony 10
Banana Dictatorship Won Obedience 10
Blocko Store Won Consumerism 10
Fireworks, Candy & Puppy Dogs 60 Donuts Consumerism 10
Crazy Cat Lady’s House 180 Donuts Indolence 10

Decorations:

Item Cost Category Points
Easter Tree Won Vanity 100
Easter Pond Won Vanity 100
Easter Egg Pile Won Vanity 100
Easter Gate Won Vanity 100
Easter Fence Won Vanity 100
Pastel Fence Won Vanity 100
Beach Town & Umbrella Won Vanity 100
Easter Banner $12,500 Vanity 100
Easter Float $15,000 Vanity 100
Sumatran Century Flower 40 Donuts Vanity 400
Kodos Topiary 15 Donuts/Won Vanity 150
Kang Topiary 15 Donuts/Won Vanity 150
Natural Feberge Egg 100 Donuts/Won Vanity 1,000

So there you have it my friends!  The complete rundown of how all of the new Easter Goodies impact the conform-o-meter.  Lots of new decorations to improve your vanity rating…but it’s always great to get new buildings that impact consumerism too!

How’s your Conform-O-Meter doing?  Are you maxed out?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Where Did THAT Come From – Fabergé Egg (updated)

Easter is over but a lot of us wabbit whackers and zappers should be finished with the Easter questline or really close and that means it’s about time this Wookiee got around to writing about an item available at the end of the Easter questline… the Fabergé Egg.

4-24-14: In Game Update

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Little update just hit our games….

Photo Apr 15, 12 27 12 PM

At first glance this update is labeled Hotfix 2…which tells us that it’s glitch fixes.  We’re combing through the files now to see if there’s anything else that has changed…BUT if you were experiencing the basket glitch and it’s now resolved please let us know!

We’ll be back with and updates from the update if we see anything!

Happy Zapping!

Update 1pm EST: 

What’s new?
-You can now tap Clausco, Metal Christmas Tree, Guinea Pig Rescue Center & Shamrock Cafe when visiting neighbors for eggs

 

Update 130PM EST from Bunny:

It still looks like many have the basket glitch and “Thank You” screen issue. 🙁 There still may be another Update coming for those. Hang in there. They were working on it as of last night when I was on a call with them. We are looking for confirmation if anyone else’s Egg Generators are now putting out the RIGHT color. MK1 should be your COMMON main player color. MK2 should be your UNCOMMON non player color. We also want to know if those with the Bunny Stunner/Zapper are still having issue with it going to the edit screen. Let us know.

Still picking through files to see if anything else stands out.

Should I Spend Donuts On the Natural Faberge Egg?

Hey Howdy Hey Bunny Zapping Tappers!

Easter has arrived in Springfield!  But, with the new Easter premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Natural Faberge Egg to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this decoration to YOUR Springfield.

From the Mouths of Addicts: From the Addicts Mailbag

mouthsofaddictsmailcall

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us form a few different tappers.  Everyday we receive TONS of emails from you guys with fun shots of your town, random thoughts about the Simpsons & of course…we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t…our favorite admiration for TSTO Addicts!  So we thought this week we’d share a few of the emails we’ve received recently.

We like to think of these two emails as PSA’s.   First, we’ve got a GREAT tip for Kindle players looking for a deal on donuts from one of our long time readers LadyPandi.  And the other is an important warning about Easter Basket Placement from one of our favorite trolls readers…the one the only FREAK!

So sit back, relax & enjoy the trip through the mailbag 🙂 Continue reading

Easter Event 1 Week In….What Have YOU Won?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So we’re 1 week in from the start of the bunny invasion, with 3 more weeks to go!  Now that everyone is busy tapping and zapping I want to know…what have YOU won so far?  Are you keeping track?

And apparently you do to…one of our readers Runicgem left this comment/suggestion on another post:
Hi Everybody!!! i would love to see a post on who has received what so far pertaining to the boxes of Easter. To date but not whining, I’ve received 4 ponds, 1 Kang Topiary, 2 Beach Umbrellas, 2 egg piles, 1 Easter Main Gate, The Banana Dictatorship Bulding and 20 easter gates plus Gold coins of 100 and 300 a few times. I hope i get some characters and other buildings but if not then donuts will be spent LOL. Hope everyone is doing well and Keep On Zapping!! 🙂

Well my friend…here’s my list from my A town:

Note: In my A town I’m playing as freemium as I can get with this event.  I have not purchased a single Egg.  The only purchase I’ve made at this point was for the MKII and that’s been more a test to see if I experience the same glitch a few of you are mentioning (where it gives you your dominant color instead of your non-dominant color).  Beyond that not 1 item has been purchased.  All baskets have been won and all Eggs have been tapped or zapped.  I am growing carrots and using Witch Marge…so I earn about 10-13 eggs/2 hrs with that (when I remember to go in and tap it!).  Also…I am NOT maxed out on friends.  I currently have 75 neighbors.  

I’m Team Pink in my A game…
Pink Boxes: Fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, fence, tree, 100 gold eggs, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Chirpy and Bart Jr, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Blocko Store

Blue Boxes: 300 Gold Eggs, pond, Fence, 300 Gold eggs, egg pile, 300 gold eggs, Pond

Gold Boxes: Kodos Topiary, Hugs Bunny, Gate

For those not wanting to count…I won Chirpy and Bart Jr on attempt #13 and Blocko Store on attempt #18.  Ended up with 6 Fences (18 total towards Sucking Out quest), 700 Gold Eggs, 1 Easter Tree and 2 Umbrella and Towels.  So…I’ve now stopped attempting on pink since I’ve unlocked both items and am converting pink eggs to blue.

In the Blue Box i’m still at least 5 attempts away from having a shot to win a unique item and in the Gold Box I got lucky and won Hugs on my second attempt!

So now…what have YOU won?  Sound off in the comments below with the prizes you’ve unlocked 1 week in!

Easter Event…1 Week In Where Should YOU Be?

Hey Howdy Hey Bunny Zapping Tappers!

Well here we are 1 week in from when all those little bunnies invaded Springfield…how are you holding up?  Still having fun with the update?  Going crazy trying to find those wascally wabbits?  Sick of all my yolking around?  Wondering if this update is all it’s cracked up to be?  Worried you’re falling behind?

Yesterday we received an awesome email from Addicts reader davadrtol.  Here’s what he said:
Dear Addicts,
   I was wondering if you could do a post giving your readers an idea of where they should be in the present event if they want to get everything.  This really only applies to freemium players, of course.
I’ve been very dedicated and have collected 22 blue boxes (haven’t picked up the building or character yet), 3 pink boxes (just the fence and golden eggs) and 3 gold boxes (Fr Sean, gate and pastel fence).
With such a disjointed style of event it’s very difficult to know exactly where you should be.
Your help would be appreciated by not only myself but your other many readers.
Thank you for reading this.
davadrtol
P.S.  I am a blue box person.  To clarify what I have received in the blue boxes = 5 x ponds, 11 x gold eggs, 4 x fence and 2 x egg pile. 

I’m sure there are many of you out there that are starting to get nervous that you’re not unlocking the prizes yet, or that you’re running out of time to get everything.  So all yolking aside…let’s break down approximately where you should be at this point in the Easter Event..

Turbo Tappin’ Easter 2014: Fr. Sean

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the Easter update is upon us!  Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies…they’re EVERYWHERE!  And we’ve been seeing in the comments that a lot of you are collecting those eggs and have already unlocked Fr. Sean!  (many on the 1st or 2nd try!)  So we thought this is a perfect time to Turbo Tap Fr. Sean!

For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn.  This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when.  This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference.

Now on with the walkthrough!  Fr. Sean is won through the Gold Prize box and once you’ve unlocked him you can either place him in Springfield or in your storage.  Once he’s placed in Springfield his 5 part questline will begin…assuming you have Homer free.  So let’s take a look at this White Collar Hero shall we?
