Did You Lose Doughnuts In A Recent Update?

This is a post that I have been meaning to write for a number of days now but given that I've been busy working on the site, I haven't had a chance to publish anything.

There a numerous reports online that following what I believe was the Springfield Heights update, a large number of players reported losing some, most or even all of their doughnuts.

This is apparently due to a bug that I am somewhat happy to tell you that the EA devs are aware of the issue and are actively working to fix the problem.

In the meantime if you contact a game adviser they should be able to credit you the missing doughnuts, once you've explained your situation and tell them how many doughnuts you're missing.

You can contact a game adviser using the 'Contact EA' tab in the menu above.

Working On The Site Some More

Just a quick update on the process of getting all of the old sites content moved over here.

- I have managed to get a copy of all the pages and am working on writing them again with a view to publishing them soon.

- I am working on an updated version of the events page with a view to including additional information and making it lore user friendly.

- I am working on collecting all of the previous sites posts. This is going to take some time given that there were over 1000 posts published. 

- Once collected, I will begin to rewrite them and publish them, hopefully in the order they were published on the original site.

I will issue another update in due course. Thanks for your continued cooperation while we undergo these changes.

Your Thoughts On Springfield Heights

The Springfield Heights update dropped about a week ago now much to my surprise.

In fact, I'm still going through all of the information just because of the shear volume of data involved!

I personally think it's one of the best updates to be implemented so far just by the amount of content and land involved.

What do you think about the update? Do you think it was a worthwhile investment in EA's part or could they have done something that in your opinion, would have been a better choice?

SITE NEWS: Server Link Added

Big news guys, Have you ever wanted to peek into Tapped Out update content server for yourself? Well now you can!

In the menu bar above, I've added a link to view exactly that. You should note though that it will only show you the most recent update and not every update ever released.

Note that this is NOT maintained by me although I am grateful to whoever does maintain it.

More new features are coming to Tapped Out Daily soon. I'll update you on them soon!

More Squidport Tiles Available Now!

As part of yesterdays update, EA added the ability to create more Squidport Tiles.

You can now build an additional 50 tiles, although be warned, it takes me 3 and a half days (so far) to make a single tile so you should get started on that as soon as you can.

How Do I Gain Access To Springfield Heights?

Springfield Heights is the latest, and by far the greatest addition to the game.

The most important thing to note is that this is a PERMANENT EXPANSION and is in no way time limited. Think of it like Squidport and Krustyland, get to it when you're ready, there's no need to rush.

That said, there are some requirements when it comes to gaining access to the new area, and by that I mean the following;

  • You must be at least level 30
  • Your cash is useless in this new area
  • All things are bought/unlocked/upgraded by gathering and then spending materials
  • Materials are guaranteed every time you do a job related to whatever material you're after

Here are a couple of other things I've noticed;

  • The tunnel can't be moved
  • All buildings required to produce crafting materials are provided for free
  • Progressing in the area is dependent on land value
  • All items released as part of this update increase land value
  • All Springfield Heights items can be placed in regular Springfield
  • All regular Springfield items can be placed in Springfield Heights

There's lots more info to come so please stay tuned for more!

The Update Is Live!

There is a new app update available for download right now on the App Store. There is no new content, the update just serves to remove the event mechanics and revert back to the original splash screen and app icon.

If you don't have all of the prizes yet, do not update and do not visit your neighbours and you'll be able to continue tapping fans in your town for, at most, an extra day before EA forces you to update.

I'll post an update on the complete list of changes tomorrow as its time for me to head off to bed for the night, and remember check to ensure that the doughnut confirmation button is still switched ON so you don't accident ill make some expensive premium purchases!

As part of the Level 55 update EA have also released a new friend point prize.

The seventeenth prize, which is the Angel Fossil, was featured in an episode called "Lisa the Skeptic". In the episode Lisa found this supposed skeleton on the site where a new Mega Mall was going to be built.

It also featured in two subsequent episodes; "A Tale of Two Springfield's" and "Four Regrettings and a Funeral" as well as in the Simpson's: Hit and Run video game as a collectors card.

In order to obtain it you will need to collect 5,000 friend points or you can unlock it right away for 500 doughnuts.

Gil Deal: The Homer

Tapped Out The Homer Gil Deal.png

Gil has returned! To mark the release of Level 55 which features Homers half brother Herb, EA have dragged everyone's favorite grovelling salesman back into out town with an old offer.

This time around, Gil is offering 'The Homer' for sale for the princely sum of 82 doughnuts. You might remember this car which was featured in an episode way back in season 2 of the show.

This isn't the first time that Gil has offered this particular deal having done so just a few months ago and for those of you wondering, the price point for the previous sale was also 82 doughnuts so nobody is getting ripped of!

You have until July 23rd at 8am BST to avail of this offer.

Level 55 Has Arrived!

EA have just dropped level 55 and I must say that I wasn't expecting anything until next week.

This is a pretty amazing level as it has one of the most requested characters so far - Herb Powell! Although he is a premium character.

Here's everything we got in this update:
- Herb Powell with Powell Moters (Premium)
- Herbs Mansion (Premium)
- Declan Desmond with Woosterfield Hotel

There's also a decoration that I can't remember the name of and a Gil deal to buy 'The Homer'.

The quest starts off with Comicbook Guy, if he's busy don't worry, he just initiates a 24 hour build.

There will be a walk through for the new level tomorrow, as it's 10:15 at night here so I will have more for you soon!
