Homer covets Moe’s emerald in this season’s Treehouse of Horrors episode.
A blog dedicated to the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out
The oft requested “What have you done with…” posts are going to start again as a feature on this blog. As an inaugural post it seems appropriate to ask, what have you done with the first building you place in the game, the Simpson House? Have you paired it with the Kiddie Pool and Homer’s Hammock? Are you keeping with tradition and placing it between Flanders House and the Brown House? Is the backyard fenced in, or is it a bit more open?
Show me what you’ve done with the Simpson House by posting a screenshot to Flickr, by tweeting a reply to @TSTOgame, or just leave a comment in this post. As the images come in I’ll update this post accordingly. If you’re in a screenshot taking mood, show me what you’ve done with Springfield Elementary too, as that will be the building of note for the next feature.
One thing you may have noticed while playing the game is that some characters are voiced, while other are not. The reason for this is that only the voice-actors who comprise the main cast are permitted to have their voices used in the game.
If you take a look at the Wikipedia page for the main cast, you’ll see that most of the characters they voice have already been added into the game. It stands to reason that the developers would want to introduce the remaining voiced characters into the game at some point, particularly the more recognizable ones.

Have you ever started a task accidentally that you wanted to cancel? Unfortunately there isn’t an easy way to stop characters in the middle of their tasks, unless of course you decide to remove them from your town temporarily. By putting a building into storage you can reset all ongoing tasks in that building. If a building has a character attached to it, the character associated with that building will also be put back in storage, like in the example below.
This trick is useful for canceling tasks, as well as finding characters. If you put the building in storage and then immediately rebuild it, the character associated with that building will appear right outside of it. It’s a good plan if you just can’t track down the character you are looking for in your town. Use this option with caution though, storing buildings will reset the timer on the income they passively generate.
TSTOgame has been live for just about a month. What do you think of the site so far? Is there anything you would like to see change? Is there anything you would like to see added to the site? How did you first find this site in the first place, and has it earned a place among your bookmarks? I want to find ways to boost traffic, as well keep people who already know about this blog coming back daily to see what’s new. Any thoughts, ideas, comments, or suggestions? All feedback is welcome. I’d like to make this the only site you need to check when it comes to staying informed on The Simpsons: Tapped Out.
