Conformists, Non-Conformists, Tagging, Digital Hugging…and Other Points of View

I am going to start with making a disclaimer…undoubtedly one of many in this post…which should alert some of the more “literal” in our readership that they may not agree with everything I am about to write. That’s OK. I am simply letting you know , before I make you upset (which is what most disclaimers are really all about. Right?)

And to that point, I am of the age when most of the commercials on the evening news (remember the evening news?) are for pharmaceutical wonder-drugs that will cure what ails me…but whose disclaimers are actually several times longer than the actual “meat” of the commercial copy.  You know the ones. “Two pills daily may help your painful hammertoes!” followed by, “not guaranteed to fix hammertoes, may cause swelling of the joints, redness of eyes, painful ear growths, loss of hair, projectile vomiting, leaking orifice condition, and possible death in some cases.”

This post will not cause any of the above…but COULD cause rising blood pressure in a large number of “Star Sensitive” players.

Here’s why…

Level 38 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Tuesday (1/14) required us to put our shades back on when we visit Springfield, but we were all still a bit disappointed that there was no new content in that update.  Well Lo and Behold Thursday (1/16) rolls around and BAM update city!  And what better way to welcome in a new Level than a Level 38 Conform-O-Meter post?  

With the release of Level 38 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so I want to make sure I get this information out to my favorite Addicts!  Now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!  

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.

The Level 38 update has introduced 2 new buildings, 2 new characters, 3 new decorations, 1 food cart & all new point amounts required to reach a 5-Star Springfield.  At Level 38 here’s what you’ll need to max out your Conform-O-Meter:

Level Indolence Obedience Consumerism/
    Gluttony
38     470      290       262/286
Tree-hugging
     /Vanity
Righteousness Socialism
20,575/32,120          173     1,626

As you can see, Level 38 has increased the requirements across the board.  The Indolence Rating requirement has increased+10 (1 more house), the Obedience Rating requirement has changed by +20, Consumerism Rating requirement has changed by +10, the Tree-Hugging Rating requirement has changed by +1,250, the Vanity Rating requirement has changed by +1,750, the Righteousness Rating requirement has changed by +8 and the Socialism Rating requirement has changed by +96.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘How will the new buildings/decorations help me max out?’  Well, here’s how:

Item Cost Category Points
Springfield County Court House $319,500 Obedience 10
Springfield Grocery Store $261,000 Consumerism 10
Lady Justice Statue $4,500 Obedience 10
Khlav Kalash Stand $760 Gluttony 10
Green Peace Boat $1,300 Tree-Hugging 200
Knight Boat 40 Donuts Vanity 400

Super excited they’ve added another building for Consumerism back into the game, especially after all of the ones they added over Christmas!  Now it should be a lot easier to uniquely max out your Conform-O-Meter….rather than having 25 Kwik-E-Marts in your town!

Let us know how your Conform-O-Meter rating is doing!  Are you maxed out?  If not, what area currently needs a boost?
