Springfield Jobs Act II- Prize Guide – MoHo House and Nigel

Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields.  The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.

I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime.  And if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all?  So be it!

And Here We Are…the FINAL PRIZE of ACT II!!  Nigel and the MoHo!

Showoff Announcement: The Springfield Jobs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Around the World Proportions!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Springfield Jobs inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

While we’re just over the halfway mark of The Springfield Jobs event, I wanted to make sure you all had ample time to prepare your towns for the next showoff.  Once you’ve got those designs planned out show us what you’ve done, because who doesn’t like seeing what others have done with all this new stuff?!  So send us your Springfield Jobs inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs on TUESDAY MAY 8th, 2018….so you’ve got loads of time to prep your towns.  Take your time, design as you see fit and send us the designs when you’re ready.

So work on those designs and send us some screenshots when you’re ready…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Monday, May 7th, 2018.  Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

Seriously, there’s no rush to send in your designs (I’ll post another reminder during Act 3).  Take your time, there’s still a whole other Act to work through.  I just wanted to give you guys plenty of advanced notice on the next Showoff so you could have some plans in mind.  No rush on sending screenshots, you have 19 days…take your time. 

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.)

A Note About Arthur Fortune…

Update: An in-game update came through this morning (April 11th), and now Arthur can/will do heists.  So EA has corrected their error.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Real quick, so we don’t get a million questions/comments on the same issue.  Arthur Fortune hit our games this morning and, as of right now, Arthur Fortune does NOT help with heists(And this was not the character I was talking about in my heist character post yesterday)

Despite what the store says, he will not help with heists.  Even after you finish his questline…

Hopefully, this is something EA will correct like they did with the Pope.  But for now know that Arthur WILL NOT help with heists.  If it changes I’ll update this post to let you know.

And for those asking….yes, a Should I buy post will be written.  No, it won’t be today, and not likely tomorrow.  Loads of content ahead of him I have to write still…so please be patient.  It’ll be up soon.
