Terwilligers and the Conform-O-Meter

This is the last little piece to the Terwilliger Event before we can put it to rest.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Terwilliger’s Event released a TON of new items into our Springfields.  Everything from business campuses and opera houses to statues and prisons!  So let’s take a look at how these new and returning items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

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 Terwilliger’s event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading “Terwilligers and the Conform-O-Meter”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

While we’re waiting for the Terwilliger’s Removal Update to hit our app stores I thought now would be a good time to have a little fun, and see how each of YOU did during the event.

Diary of a Wookiee: Thoughts on GMOs

Update from Alissa: If you don’t see your comment yet approved on this post it’s because we’re saving them for Wookiee to look at.  So just hang tight, once Wookiee gets a chance to look at them they’ll be approved (since most of you have specific things directed at him in your comment). 

Hey hey GMO squashers!

So, life is strange, right? Here we sit in an event all about the Terwilleger family and GMOs created by the fictional Monsarno Corporation and I can’t help laughing at how art imitates life sometimes. In my life, I usually stay off soap boxes regarding issues unless I find them really important. Of course, I say that and then my favorite mobile game brings out an event all about GMOs. Would it surprise you to learn I actually wrote an essay about them?

It’s been a little since I wrote up a diary here so I figured it might be fun to share my essay with the community. In fairness, I’ll just go right out and say I lean towards the non-GMO camp but as frequent readers know, I’m often away for periods while I knock out college stuff.  I thought it might interest some of you to read an example of an essay I’ve written (and gotten an A+ on from my liberal Government teacher lol).  The essay follows the break and I completely understand if you’re not interested. It does bear on our current animated conundrum though.

Where Did THAT Come From – Cactus Patch & Simpson Houseboat

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?
