Guides, the best Tapped Out walkthroughs online

For the past few weeks I’ve been doing an exhaustive amount of work preparing a new feature for the site, Guides. Since I started this blog, one thing I set out to do early on was provide full walkthroughs for all new content added to the game in a timely fashion.

Readability was also a priority, as I wanted everything to be very easy to understand. After a few revisions, I settled on a format that incorporated several small tables to convey the necessary information.

This was great for outlines, but I also wanted to incorporate it into walkthroughs. For a few weeks these two sections of the site existed side-by-side, but since the information was nearly identical, I wanted to find a way to streamline these two sections of the site into one easy-to-navigate page.

Finally I settled on an idea that allowed users to show or hide the quest dialogue. This option gives readers the flexibility to switch between an abridged and unabridged view of the guide without having to navigate to a completely different section of the site. It was also important to keep these pages image free, to make viewing these guides on a mobile device that much easier.

On this page you will find guides for a majority of content currently available. Social events that have concluded and cross-promotional events for old episodes will eventually be added as well. Right now though you will be able find information for everything dating back to the first content update.

Hopefully this new feature of the site will prove to be a great resource for players new and old.

    Very nice. Any chance of making a land/price grid like you made for your GameFaqs FAQ?

      It’s doubtful that you could finish in a week, but EA may let you finish it regardless of having Thanksgiving already occur since you would have already most of it finished.

    Your streamlined guides are wonderful! I’ve also noticed another site copy your style… This site is easiest to navigate and read. Keep up the great work.

    On a side note, are you or anyone still collecting KL tickets? I’ve almost saved 200k tickets and just waiting for an update.

      I am. I have saved 100 thousand. I hope they give us something to spend them on. :-)

        Have you all finished Krustyland? I’m still purchasing land and decorating. I think I have around 10 more plots of land to buy.

    Great as always..do you have antsy predictions for what we could get for Christmas…..

    The only thing I could think of was nativity costumes!!

        With all of Homer’s “Elf talk” – perhaps there is some for shadowing…?

        Just looked through the old Christmas episodes
        We could have the real Santa & slay
        Something from the nutcracker or Christmas carol

      That would be fantastic! Didn’t you have an idea for Christmas costumes for Rod and Todd…since they were left out of Halloween?

        No, I stopped purchasing land as there is no need (imo) for such an expanisve Krustyland with the limited amount of buildings available. I have a lot of plots left to buy but I think its wiser just to save for new building(s) when/if they arrive.

    Awesome job, as always, feelingblind! I think that your constant attention, updating, and care to make things easier for users separates this site from all others! You actually listen! Keep it up! drhowie
