Showoff Announcement: Winter 2016

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Winter Festivity Proportions!  We’re getting read to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Winter 2016 inspired designs!  So prep those downs…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

So prep those snow covered Springfields because we want to see how y’all incorporated those Winter inspired designs into your Springfield!  So send us your Winter 2016 inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post, featuring your designs, on SATURDAY January 7th 2017.


So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Friday January 6th. 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.) 


Help Our TSTO Addicts Community Send a “Holiday Greeting Message to EA” Part II


Ah…as the old song says, It’s the “Most Wonderful Time, Of the Year!”

A time when all people set aside their differences, and work toward a happier, jollier feeling, when they can be unified in the joy of the season.  A season when we all agree that the trivial differences that separate us, can be put aside toward a unified wish of “Peace on Earth, Good Will to All Mankind!”

Or Not…

So, EA has certainly “done it this time,” in creating a “Winter Update” that has been without question, one of the most divisive of all time (and that is saying a lot!).  Part I of our experiment has been enlightening, to say the least. Our little one-sided poll has produced results that are predictably slanted, while offering some insight into the feelings of the community.

The results speak for themselves…

Let Cooler Heads Prevail…My Thoughts So Far On the Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So normally we just plug away with updates here at Addicts HQ.  Listening to what you guys have to say, but trying not to say too much about our opinions.  (well…before Pat anyway lol) We write our posts, give you guys the details and address issues we feel need to be addressed.  But we try not to say too much about the theme of the events.  Because let’s face it, we’re all Addicts and we’re going to plug away no matter what.  But this 2016 Winter Event has seem to hit a nerve with many of you…

Christmas 2016 is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well that was fast….it’s Live!

And yes there’s snow in Springfield!



Currently Live on Android (looks like Android users got their wish) AND iOS AND Kindle.  You may have to do a Tapped Out Search in the Store (and then tap on it for more info), to see the update.  I did.

It’s also a MASSIVE update…remember every item in the game has to be reloaded to show it covered in show.  So make sure you’re on WiFi and have some time…it goes up to 1227.2MB on my Android.  It’s HUGE.

Starts off with some auto dialogue from Bart and Lisa.  Followed by a 6s task for Lisa and 6s task for 5 Springfielders.  This is followed by a task to place a free sign and a 6s task for Homer.  And that’s followed by a 6s task for Cletus.  Which is followed still by more 6s tasks.  This time for Willie.  Followed by a task to build Springfield Henge (Free), and a task to hand in an offering.  Once you build (6s) Springfield Henge you’ll launch the Event Hub…

Back with more as I go through it. Ok guys more details below the fold (Note: I’m still updating this post as I go, so continue to check back and refresh this post until the titles says updated and complete It’s complete now).  My apologies for it taking as long as it did.  These late hitting updates kill me when it comes to pulling the info, then picking up the Tiny Addict and getting her ready for bed.  Thanks for patiently understanding 🙂

And now for the info…and a disclaimer to those wanting to sit this one out…
