TSTO Characters and their weapon’s of choice.

20140420-095246.jpgI wonder; have you ever noticed the amount of violence and references to guns and other weapons there have been in the TSTO. It seems like every few minutes some one is pulling out a piece or stalking defenceless animals.

Up In Smoke – Happy 420!

tumblr_mefncgudjR1rkzakvo1_500Goooooooood morning tappers! How are you all doing today?! I am mighty fine and it’s not only because it’s Easter. Being a grown woman, I don’t get chocolatey treats anymore. I buy them on discount the week after! But this post is actually not about this Christian Holiday. This year, 4/20 just happened to land on the same date as Easter! For those of you who don’t know what 4/20 is, it’s a celebration of marijuana. It’s the occasion to put an end to the stigma of the dirty hippie and talk about the benefits of using it and  all the positive effects the legalization of this plant – for medicinal and recreationnal use -  could have on society. The writers of the show are fully aware that the legalization issue is an important one and so in this post, I am going to list all the cannabis culture references I can find in The Simpsons but first…

Should I buy Frink-thetick Egg Generator MK2 ?

frinktheticegggeneratormkii_menu Wow just what the Mad scientist ordered an egg making machine, could come in very useful if purchased early on in the event as it looks like we need 10s of 1000s of different coloured eggs to get all of the Easter content. But should you have to buy a machine to make eggs? shouldn’t there be enough free eggs in the game available to get all of the content? Sadly I don’t think there is, so this will help you out a lot but is it worth 75 donuts?
Let’s have a look and decide!

Pros

  • Generates a large amount of eggs; 300 every 24hours and 30xp.
  • Much better value then buying eggs off the shelf.
  • Over the course of the event it could make 8400 Eggs; ish.
  • Looks teckie; sci-fi. If you like that sort of thing. “I do”.
  • Limited time buy; doubt we will see this again.
  • After Easter event it will probably earn dollars and xp.
  • If you’re a pink egg collector it makes blue eggs. very helpful.
  • if you’re a blue egg collector it makes pink eggs. Obviously.

Cons

  • Costs 75 donuts; that’s more expensive than puppy store!
  • The event should give you enough free eggs to get everything?
  • Could be hard to place if you don’t have Frinks lab!
  • EA should give us a free one of these not the mk1.

Conclusion Well fellow Easter tappers are you going to take the plunge and buy one or two? In order to get all of the Easter content you’re probably going to have to buy four or five and even then not guaranteed to get everything. I’ve bought one to help me out a bit, but quite frankly I think it looks damn good near Frinks lab. Don’t think of it like you’re buying a decoration, think of it like you’re buying characters and buildings because that’s what we want the extra eggs for; am I right?
Of cause if you’re a non premium player or skint or just feel like you shouldn’t have to buy an egg machine to get eggs then sadly you probably won’t get all of the Easter content.

I am actually unsure if i am even going to manage to get it all! And as a completionist that would really bug me. Let me know if this helped or not.

Easter Glitch – Trick or Treat?

TSTO has had a fair share of bugs and glitches. Normally, no one wants to see a glitch in a game. TSTO gamers have had to endure a harp glitch and numerous other little bugs that have detracted from game-play. Sometimes, however, a glitch can be a good thing. Players used to be able to “give” their neighbors multiple boardwalk tiles for Squidport. It was a glorious time!

Tile Glitch

With the recent update I’ve notice a new (to me) glitch. When I go to my inventory, I’m told what the item is and how many pieces I have. Normally, I cannot place more items than I have in my inventory. If I wanted more of something, I had to go “buy” it after getting out of my inventory and pressing the little bench/tree circle in the bottom right corner.

Now, however, it is possible for me to buy things from my inventory. The problem with this is that a player may not realize in-game cash is being spent on an item that is supposedly in the inventory. Check out these screen shots. The first one shows how many trees I have in my inventory: one.

The second screen shot shows that I am able to place more than one tree. Notice the white text showing that money has been spent! I’m not sure I like this “convenience” of being able to buy items from my inventory box!

Another weird twist, as you can see from this third screen shot, is that I cannot place the purchased tree into my inventory. I can sell it (which I did), but I can’t place it in the inventory—even though, it was from the inventory box that I purchased the thing. Isn’t that weird? It makes me think this is a glitch and not an attempt to “trick” gamers into spending in-game cash. What do you think? Is this happening to you? Is this a “trick” or a “treat” in your view? Let us know in the comments!

Are you a Feeling Blue or Tickled Pink?

eggs-change pinkJust out of morbid curiosity I was wondering if the blue/pink egg collecting divide was 50/50 as it should be or are there more players of a particular colour then the other?

This is just a short post which might lead to something greater depending on the results I get.
So please fill in the poll and let me know if you’re a Pink player or Blue player.

If you’re unsure then check out one of your characters Easter tasks, if your reward is pink then you’re a pink player and vice versa.

Thanks for voting.

Should I buy the Fireworks, Candy and Puppies shop?

fireworkscandypuppies_menuWell folks look time it’s time to check your pockets to see if you have enough donuts available to purchase this delightfully colourful establishment.
The FCPS has only been seen in one episode of the Simpsons “The Old Man and the “C” Student” during Season 10 way back in 1999. So do you really want to spend your donuts on such a dated and forgotten about shop? Let’s have a look at some pros and cons to see if you do.

Pros

  • Possibly the brightest most fun shop I have ever seen.
  • Earns at a premium rate, $55 and 5XP every Hour.
  • Adds 10 Points to Consumerism rating
  • Gives Ralph a two-hour task to play with Puppies.
  • Only 60 donuts; making it one of the cheapest buildings.

Cons

  • Comes with no character.
  • Has no quest line.
  • Not been seen in the show for fifteen years.
  • Poorly animated building, just a few spinning toy windmills.

Conclusion
I really like this building it looks and sounds great and at only 60 donuts it’s a great way to boost your consumerism rating. That been said I found it quite tricky to place as it doesn’t really go with anything else. I ended up placing it in my park area with the ice cream shop and crazy golf place.
If you have a spare 60 donuts go for it, if not then save them up for something better, maybe crazy cat lady!
