Shout Out! And the August Finalists Are….

shoutoutrevised Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well July has come and gone (and August is here!) and that means it’s about that time to pick our Tapper of the Month!  Our cross blog monthly contest to find the Tapper of the month between TSTO Topix, TSTO game and TSTO Addicts has been set up because we want to feature YOU!   Your town, your words anything/everything about YOU!  Each month we’ll pick a handful of readers across the three blogs to be featured in our Monthly Shout Out, where we’ll feature your town and some fun information about you.  Then at the end of the Shout Out we’ll let the TSTO Community vote for their favorite.  That winner will be declared our Tapper of the Month! This has been a fun process for Topix, game and Addicts!

We’ve enjoyed getting to know each of you through your submissions and we really loved seeing your creative work on display!  We received many submissions for the August Tapper of the month and had a tough decision to narrow it down to just 5, but we did it!  The writing staff of all THREE blogs came together and collectively agreed that all 5 of the finalists were Tapper of the Month material! So check out the top 5 and be sure to vote for your favorite!  Remember the Tapper you choose could be the Tapper of the Month and be featured on Topix, game and Addicts for the month of July AND win a $10 gift card!  So choose wisely!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before we get to the finalists…just a quick announcement.  Tapper of the Month will be on hiatus for the next two months.  We’ve made the hiatus decision based on the summer holidays & the pending TSTO events on the horizon.   So, we will have no winners for September and October Tappers of the Month.  We’ll pick it back up with a November Tapper of the Month.  You can still send in your submissions now to be considered for November’s Tapper of the Month (final submissions will be due in October, don’t worry we’ll announce a reminder about it…it is a few months away 😉 )
 Don’t worry, we’ll still have plenty of contest fun coming up! 🙂

GUEST POST: Those Squidport T1£€$!

Below is a re-post of some amazing info compiled by our friend Em at Topix!  You can find out more from our friends at TSTOTopix.com!  

The Squidport extension was released 12th of June 2013 and is a permanent addition to the game. It will become available when you reach level 15. It is a multimillion dollar investment that will most likely take over a year to complete.

I consider “tile” to be a Four-Letter-Word that should not be used around children, so I will not use it in this post 🙂 Squidport will consists of 150 pieces of wood that you can place your SqP items on.
For those of us that began SqP when it was released and have not rushed any, or only a few of these slow, stupid, hateful, expensive pieces of wood, we are just starting on the $12.5K / 60h ones. I need at least 10 more to finish my very, very basic design. I will have no room for new buildings before Christmas 😦
How slow and how expensive are these things anyway?!
#1-4 instant, free
#5   $250/1h
#6   $450/2h
#7   $850/4h
#8   $1.7K/8h
#9   $2.5K/12h
#10 $3.35K/16h
=$ 9100 / 33h – 1 day + 9h
#11 – 15 $ 5K / 24h = $ 25K / 5 days
#16 – 30 $ 7.5K / 36h – 1 1/2 days = $ 112.5K / 22 1/2 days
#31 – 60 $ 10K / 48h – 2 days =$ 300K / 60 days
image
#61 – 90 $ 12.5K / 60h – 2 1/2 days = $ 375K / 75 days
#91 – 120 $ 15K / 72h – 3 days = $ 450K / 90 days
#121 – 150 $ 17.5 / 84h – 3 1/2 days = $ 525K / 105 days
Total $ 1.766.600 / 358 days + 21h
You can, of course, rush these stupid things using Donuts. ~ 4300 Donuts is needed to get a 150 piece SqP instantly. Me, I’d rather spend my money on something else but I did rush some of the T1£€$ so I could continue the SqP quests.
The SqP quest has 11 chapters and 32 parts. To finish the entire Squidport quest you’re required to have 31 of these blasted things. This will take you 35 days + 21h if you don’t use Donuts to speed things up and it will cost you $ 156,600.
And that’s just the totals for the T1£€$! Add the costs for the buildings and decorations required the sum will be $ 698K including the minimum land/seaplots you need.
Happy Tapping!
Disclaimer: Me + math = disaster, so my calculations might be wrong.

THANK YOU!!!
