One of the most intersting features about The Simpsons Tapped Out is the social aspect. Most mobile games I have played didn’t have that aspect and it adds so much to your gameplay, especially during special events! I personnaly really enjoy going to other people’s Springfield to see what they have done with it. The way some of us display our buildings and decorations is what catches my attention most. Sure, we all visit to make a few dollars and xp but when you stop and think about how there will never a town that looks like the next one, it’s pretty amazing. Some people have very clever ideas as to what they put next to what. In my town for example, there is an area where I put all the restaurants and added tables in the middle and decorations around ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/11264367665/ ) I visited people who are so creative with what EA gave us. I have even seen 2D and 3D designs made with fences, schrubs, you name it!
I have loaded up my neighboreeno list up to 100 just before the Halloween event started and for all of October, visited almost everyone everyday. It paid off with a lot of spooktacular donuts and I got a chance to see many beautifuls towns at all sorts of levels. What I would like to do at this point is clear up my list completely except for a few friends I know in real life and start over fresh with readers from this blog. While obviously I want to see more towns I never saw before, I also want to give a chance to people who read my posts and come to this page regularly to be able to get a good view at mine and interact with me during the Christmas event. My Origin id is the same as here: PlatypusGuitar. If you would like me to add you, please leave your Origin id in the comment section below. I would also like to know, what do YOU like about visiting other players’ Springfields? I look forward to read your opinions and visiting you neighboreenos!
Since we are approaching a special event, you can also find more neighbors HERE.

Visiting other users towns is an important element of the game. If you would like to make some new friends, post your user name here. When you visit a friend’s town you can tap up to three buildings, earning yourself some money and XP. You can even visit your friend’s Krustyland.
Sometimes there are content updates that focus on the social aspect of the game, the last of which being the Whacking Day event from a few months ago. So build up your friends list now so when the next event is announced you’ll have a whole bunch of friends to help you reach your goal. Don’t worry if your town isn’t perfect either, as the state of things are always a work-in-progress.

The friends page of the game has been completely revamped. Now at a glance you can see just how far along your friends are in the game. Not only can you tell how developed their Springfield is, but now you can see who has started building the Springfield Squidport as well as Krustyland. Additionally if you tap the Krustyland part of the map, you’ll be taken directly to your friend’s Krustyland, without having to find the Krustyland Shuttle in their town.
You can also use this feature to help prune your friend list. If you see a higher level player who hasn’t even started the Squidport yet, there is a good chance they aren’t actively playing the game anymore. Since you are only allowed a certain number of friends, you may want to make room for more active players.
Check below the break to see some examples of the different stages of construction.
