This event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For parts two through 9 of We Didn’t Start the Fire you’ll have to earn crookandladder_medal_ via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.  The final of the 8 prizes is the coveted SVFD Station…

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
