From the Mouths of Addicts: More Event Ideas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  We’ve got a post from longtime Addict, Happy Tapper! 

Happy Tapper used the downtime with the latest mini-event to focus on what we could see for the next major event.  And even give EA an idea or two about what to put out in the future.  

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Happy Tapper… -Alissa 

Hello, fellow tappers!

You may remember me from such posts as “Future TSTO Events” and “The Main Event Contest” or the annoying optimistic guy in the comments.

If I have got EAs attention and haven’t got it for much longer, I would like to quickly say …

I would love to see more interaction in the game, some more ways to make the game live up to its “strategy” title: more neighbour interaction in events, easter eggs to earn a donut or two, little clues/riddles to get to a prize, a Choose your Own Adventure type update where there are multiple routes to the dialogue.

I would just like to see some more experimenting with making events more than just popping into my town every 4 hours, tappa tappa tappa and then leaving.

The Simpsons is still full of content, from the classic to the modern, so in this post I wanted to break down some ideas that I’ve enjoyed designing, including possible content, a questline idea and maybe a way for it to break the 3 act formula. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading

Where Did That Come From? – Meathook, Poppa Wheelie, Hooch City and More…

As with most TSTO events these days, this event is kind of an amalgam of several different Simpsons Episodes, pulled together with a loose storyline, to make the TSTO make sense…mostly.

In this case, there are two primary episodes from which most of the content is being pulled, one obvious…and one not so obvious. But both, with the same over-arching theme…boozing and running wild.

Now, I’ve certainly had more than my share of carousing in my life…mostly revolving around Rugby, being in a band, and just being a kid who liked to party.  But, I admit, I was never one to fall prey to the ritualistic partying that goes with St. Patrick’s Day, or the general mayhem that seems to be part of being in a gang. Although it could be argued that Rugby teams have a sort of “gang mentality” to them from an onlooker’s point of view. But, I assure you…rugby teams are nothing like Motorcycle gangs. To begin with, we don’t have motorcycles. But, the rest…well…there are some similarities in our group think-group drink mentality.

And, in this particular episode of the Simpsons…Drinking, Carousing, Rough-Housing, and absconding another man’s woman, are all points that could certainly draw similarities.

Let’s take a look at where HALF of the TSTO stuff comes from in this update!

App Store Update Available: Homer vs. the 18th Amendment Mini Event Live

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

An app store update is available on ANDROID at the moment (iOS we’re still waiting…Amazon you’ll have to let me know). Here’s a look at the description:

This will remove the Bart Royale update from your game & introduce a new Mini Event Homer vs. the 18th Amendment. (You won’t see the mini event unless you download the removal update)

It’ll kick off with a 6s task for Homer and 5 Springfielders. And it ends on March 21st..PERFECT for St. Patrick’s Day!

I’ll be back with more as I go through it….. Details below the fold…. Continue reading

New Teaser for Homergeddon is Live

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A teaser update (likely for next event)  has hit our games this evening.  Kicks off with placing 50 year supply of Ice cream and an 8hr task for Homer.

This is IN GAME nothing to download from the app store. So don’t look there… nothing will show up in the app store. Just start up TSTO and the update should auto download for you. If not hard close TSTO and/or restart your device.   Again it’s IN GAME…NOT APP STORE.

I’m going to cover the ins and outs for the teaser update in the first post of the day tomorrow morning (roughly 12hrs from now). Since the first task is 8hrs it gives you guys the evening to send Homer and then more details will be up tomorrow when you wake up.

Use this post to discuss the teaser update….we’ll have another (off update topic) post up from Pat shortly.

 

From the Mouths of Addicts: I’ve Got Stuff, It’s Multiplying and I’m Losing Control….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  We’ve got another post from one of our long-time friends and she who is brave enough to run Futurama Addicts and Family Guy Addicts…Russian Tigger! 

Somehow, between writing loads of posts for FWOT Addicts and FGA Addicts, RT found the time to knock out yet ANOTHER a fun guest post for TSTO!  (such an overachiever!)  This time, fitting in with another hot topic from earlier this week, she’s tackling the Nuclear Option! 

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Russian Tigger… -Alissa 

 

So a few days ago I started to get twitchy and considered nuking my Springfield… again. I thought long and hard, but then remembered the last time I went nuclear it was almost 6 months before I saw my beloved Stewart Duck wandering my now radioactive empty streets. Yup, my favorite thing in the whole game disappeared in a puff of atomic ash and I was left suffering radioactive shock and vowed that I’d never go nuclear again. Continue reading

From the Mouths of Addicts: All I Want for Christmas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters and guest blogger…Happy Tapper! 

Sam has some thoughts, musings and wishes for Christmas in TSTO!  Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s HappyTapper’s (Sam)…and his Christmas Wishes  -Alissa 

Hello fellow tappers. My name is HappyTapper or Sam and I want to start this post by saying … I don’t like Halloween. I’m WAY more of a Christmas lad. Even though we got a pretty naff Halloween event, I’m crossing my fingers for a truly fun Christmas event so that I forget “The Event to Not be Named” (Xmas 2016). As soon as I knew Halloween was getting quite repetitive and boring, I started to plan my perfect Christmas in TSTO because I’m sad, have no life and have nothing better to do then rewatch Simpsons episodes and organise an event that I know won’t even have an impact. When I thought about Christmas in the game I got quite worried because I really couldn’t think of much left to add because there aren’t a lot of Christmas episodes to pull from and the Christmas episodes that they have normally stay local to “normal” Springfield so don’t have much Christmas content for the game. BUT after some Christmas episode rewatching I had an idea for a Christmas event that pulled together bits and bobs of Festive content that I’d really like in the game.

I know that EA will be very near to finishing the Christmas event so I’m not writing this post to give EA an idea, I wanted to publish my ideas and thoughts here because I thought that if I enjoy these kind of posts then maybe some of you will. So let the ramble begin … Continue reading

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Russian Tigger…and her Halloween musings -Alissa 

It’s spooky and it’s scary, it’s loopy and it’s crazy…… Ok I think enough of you by now know that should probably read I’m loopy and I’m crazy, but hey I’m not talking about me, I’m talking about Halloween, honest guv’nor.

Yes, it’s that time of year when we overdose on candy and treacle apples, then let our imaginations run wild, well, to be honest, my minds default setting is probably running wild, so no real change there. But what do the inner workings of my mind have to do with Tapped Out and Halloween?
