Springfield Showoff: Secret Agents/Cypress Creek

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Secret Agents Removal Is Live…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Currently live in your app store is the removal update for the Secret Agents Event…

At the moment I only see the removal update on Android, nothing on iOS yet currently available on iOS, but I did have to reboot my device to see it in the store.  Amazon I can’t check, but if you see it let me know.Reportedly live on Amazon as well.  And I don’t see a “what’s new” description just yet.  If one shows up later I’ll add it to this post

Note: You may have to actually search your App Store for “Tapped Out” to see the update.  It may not initially appear in the update list…if you still don’t see it try rebooting your device.

And here’s the app store teaser…

As of right now there’s nothing really “new” with this removal update.  It just removes the event from your game…including rolling back the Splash Screen to the regular screen.

There are a few changes with this update though, which I’ll cover below… Continue reading
