10 Crucial Tips For The Simpsons: Tapped Out
By Anthony Fertino
The Simpsons: Tapped Out is a surprisingly engaging mobile game, and here are ten tips for how to play it and how to play it well!
There was a time when The Simpsons was a universally revered show, and there’s no question that its most glorious moments have cemented themselves into the zeitgeist forever. However, people generally seem to contend its merits lately. But the truth is, The Simpsons has already secured a number of die-hard fans, and it still airs a gem now and then. If you’re nostalgic, or if you’re still a fan in spite of the naysayers, EA’sThe Simpsons: Tapped Out is a great game, with surprisingly decent writing and all the references you can muster. Here are 10 important tips for long-time players and the uninitiated alike.
10 Unwanted Daily Challenges
At a certain point in the game, any Daily Challenges that only have monetary value are strongly undesirable. Unfortunately, they can be easy to accidentally overlook, and you might inadvertently complete a cash-grab challenge. Always cancel any cash-based challenges in the hopes of a Donuts replacement.

Also, be sure to do this any time you first enter the game, because simply collecting from your buildings is frequently the required challenge for cash. With the new Sky Finger Monument, which collects from every single building at once, this is now an even easier mistake to make.
9 Hoard Between Events
The best thing about The Simpsons: Tapped Out is its series of events, which are regularly dished out. However, they also tend to tie up all of your primary characters, which are required at the Rail Yard—inhibiting one of your best options to scrounge up Donuts. So, although you may possibly lose interest between those themed events, that’s actually the best time to play. By the time the event rolls along, you won’t have a single Donut to purchase the items you actually want! Remember to keep finding Maggie, since a failure doesn’t reset the streak. And certainly don’t forget to play Sideshow You. Yes, it actually does reward Donuts here and there.
8 Prioritize The Event
Events are usually updated to your game in tandem with any seasons or holidays. For example, every year, the game also offers a new Treehouse of Horror event. Given that The Simpsons television show has essentially incorporated every celebration imaginable, it’s easy for the game to follow suit, with corresponding items popping up. If you want the new rewards, you’ll need to reallocate all of your characters’ interests into the event. It may seem to oppose your instinct, but don’t bother with the main plot quests; those will always be there. Reorient everything towards the event, since you probably don’t have the time to clock in to the game as frequently as you’d need to gather every reward.
7 Wait On Springfield Heights
If no one’s told you, all of Springfield Heights is a dead end. Valve will finally count to three, the day that area becomes useful. So, don’t worry, those quests don’t actually go anywhere. Also, Springfield Heights’ resources are remarkably troublesome to accumulate, and various squares of land ask for completely different resources. Overall, it’s the most time consuming locale, and it doesn’t function any differently than the normal area. Anything you can place there, you can place on the land in your ordinary town. The payoff just isn’t there. But since they decimated Krustyland, if you’re bored of your regular town, that’s the time to delve into Springfield Heights.
6 Combine Event Rewards
Don’t conform to the obvious. Although the game is more or less straightforward with its themed events, you can utilize previous rewards and a variety of miscellaneous items to accomplish surprising combinations. Sometimes, the rewards from a Sci-Fi event can contribute to your own Horror-based area, and the rewards from a Superhero event can help construct a disaster zone. Set aside unique items, so you don't forget them. Perhaps even a year later, it’ll become the perfect cornerstone of your new idea. Don’t let the game’s events stifle your own creativity, even if the new items are already neat in their own right.
5 Never Rush A Job
This is something you learn early on, but it’s probably already too late when the epiphany hits you. Donuts are hard-earned currency, and the entire game is built on the prospect of getting you to pay actual money in order to claim a desired item before time runs out. In the tutorial, you absolutely do not have to rush the job with Donuts, and it’s good practice to avoid this altogether. All you have to do is time out your actions more efficiently; what would Lisa do? For example, sending out characters on lengthy jobs is always best to run overnight.
4 Emergency Rail Yard
Sometimes, during an event, you just don’t have the time or patience to reach the reward you had wanted all along. If the ticking clock on the event is nearly upon you, and you realize you don’t have enough time to send out your characters for event-based currency, there is a better solution: resort to the Rail Yard instead.

Redirect all of your characters’ actions towards the immediate accumulation of Donuts, and you might simply be able to purchase the reward with that, instead. The Donut cost of a reward actually goes down as you accumulate more event-based currency, so you might not even realize that Donuts are a last-minute alternative.
3 Don’t Forget Your Friends
It can be very easy to forget to visit your friends’ towns, particularly if you don’t even have a fleeting interest in the rewards the game offers you for tapping three of their buildings. They also take a minute to even load up. However, it's always good to rely on your friends. These towns are frequently incorporated into the seasonal events, and it can be a surprisingly easy way to muster a clutch win for that reward you so desperately wanted. Remember, those little additions to event-based currency start to add up over time, especially when an event can sometimes last more than a month.
2 Line Up Your Walls
For some reason, this game seems to be quite taken with walls. No need for any self-evident political references, there. But seriously, every single event seems to supply you with another opportunity for a different kind of wall, which will always correspond with the other rewards. For example, in the Western event, you could make your very own Westworld thanks to the wooden fences. These barriers allow you to distinguish the areas of your town more efficiently, but lining them up is tough. Play around with the rotations, and stay consistent, or it will absolutely throw off the number of necessary walls. During events, always be sure to purchase extra walls, just in case you decide to expand an area later on.
1 Prep Before An Event
If you know a new season or holiday is nearly upon you, be sure to free up your characters. You might also suddenly receive a new splash page without warning, and yet it won’t be accompanied by any new content. That means the new event is just around the corner, and the last thing you need is for your primary characters to be wrapped up in a twenty-four hour job when the event drops. You can miss out on the entire first day, which is when vital buildings and frustrating 6-second jobs need to be knocked out.

Real World Designs in Your TSTO Towns
For example in my town I have
- The answer to how the Plow King keeps in business in the summer months (look behind the Nuke Power Plant I will eventually post below)
- A fully workable Prison area with secure gate system, inmate yard areas, etc (I actually used to be a corrections office in my past professional life)
- A realistic way to include dinosaurs and Egyptian pyramids (look at my Natural History Museum design I will eventually post below)
- I like to re-purpose items so it makes a unique new structure or design (i.e. look at my High School Gym which is really the ice skating rink I will eventually post, or extended terminals in my airport, etc)
- I have a full Religious District that covers Christians to Jews to Pagans to Pastry Worshipers
- I also like the little real world details, like one of my Krusty Burgers has a working drive through, and my Grade school has a pick up kids driving area, a track and football field for the high school, a realistic dump / recycling area, etc
- I have a fun center area that even includes a working hedge maze
- A realistic Airport with extended runways, passenger drop off area, and a helipad, etc
I will share all the examples above plus more in this thread. Please feel free to share some of your most awesome designs with real world inspiration.

Simple Town Designs: It’s All About Perspective
Hey Hey Hey Addicts!
So the nuclear option came back in TSTO and it got me jonesing for a redesign in Wookieetown. While my finger IS hovering over that button, Im not ready yet but it did make me consider my town and things I liked vs. new ideas I may have. I know some of you might be in the redesign (or design) phase for your Springfield so I thought I might share some pics with you to maybe provide inspiration.
We get quite a few comments asking for tips and design ideas for Springfield. While we do have a basic design guide here at Addicts (mostly just tips to get started), we thought it would be fun to create a series of posts based on different ways to design various areas of your Springfield. Note: In no way do we consider ourselves “experts” at this design stuff, in fact MANY of you could teach us a thing or two about town designs. These are just fun and different things we’ve come up with, inspired from our own minds or friends towns, to “spice up” our favorite virtual city!
For this edition, were going to look at PERSPECTIVE. Basically taking items in your town and making them look different than intended. It is one of my favorite things to do and I thought Id share. Without further ado lets get started.
I love this work of perspective art from James Hopkins. It illustrates my point in this post perfectly. Designing is all about what your viewer sees. The way you place things can make certain items different than they were initially intended. Here are some examples:
So you want a limo for you rich Springfieldians but the only thing available is the DMV Limo with that Student Driver sign. I chose to hide it behind my mansion. You can also see I hid the base of the Left-handed Roadster with some hedges.
Heres another example of hiding the Roadster with Boardwalk trees.
Another example of hiding something is this next one. I took the Egg Nog Bar from the Holiday Event and turned it into a hillbilly moonshine joint. Seemed only natural to make Cletus the proprietor.
One of the buildings I had that I never really liked the look of was the Cracker Factory. Inspiration struck recently when I realized it could flesh out my Springfield Mall area quite nicely provided I hid its sign. Heres what I came up with. The billboards just seemed to tie it in even better.
Its up to your imagination what a building can be. My neighboreeno Steven took the Springfield Skating Rink, Gulp N Blow, El Chemistri, Up Up & Buffet, and the Sunsphere and created an airport in his town. Really rad IMHO.
There are all sorts of buildings you can mash together to make something new. The White Houses fit together nicely. All you need is a big decoration to hide what you dont like.
My neighbor Cybersilly took the Ultrahouse 2 from the Halloween Event and made it an addition to Frinks Lab. Its really cool.
I love Frink and his lab so what I did to add to it was take the spooky walls and a Bomb Shelter to create an extra structure to Frinks Lab. This could easily be done with Cobblestone Walls also. I think the ghost zapper works as a great addition too.
We all know that 3D is an example of forced perspective. We have some great info on that here. Using the lessons from previous 3Ds, I took the Sunsphere and made it part of my high rise area in Wookieetown. This is actually part of one of the movie sets I have near Krustylu Studios and Channel 6. (shoutout to Chris J. for that inspiration). You may also notice I wanted to give the Stonecutters their own plane. These building worked great to hide the Up Up & Buffets sign.
Using this same technique, you can put Billboards on the roofs of buildings. For the longest time, I have had a Radioactive Man Billboard on top of the Android’s Dungeon. Same idea also turns a silly Popsicle Stick Disco Stu into a roof decoration that makes sense to this Fuzzball.
Using a billboard and my Itchy, Scratchy & Poochie Balloons from Thanksgiving , I was also able to spice up my new animation studio. The placement easily makes things look higher than they really are.
Another example of this is what I did with my Fireworks. Apu sold them during that event so I gave him a stockpile behind one of his Kwik-E-Marts. Just lined up the boxes with the roof edge and then used brown fencing to make it look larger than it was.
Using perspective, you can also create jokes in your town. I took the Escalator to Nowhere and decided anyone using this would obviously be deposited at Calmwood Mental Hospital. I love watching the crazies drop into its backyard.
Using water you can create pools for virtually anywhere. Until EA gives us one thats not solid gold, my Wookiee-made ones are by my apartments and Community Center.
I also used perspective, a little 3D and the clever placement of my Springfield Buddhist Temple to create a waterfall flowing into a river.
The Stonecutter Event gave us those pretty pink Tube Slides. How about taking them and creating mega slides? The first folks I saw do this were reader Kelpek and Cybersilly during a Showoff. We all get inspiration from others. Here is my slide I put in my park a la Silly.
Kelpek took it one step further and if I had the room, I would so do this.
Got a few Kang & Kodos Topiaries from the Easter Event you dont know what to do with? Well, you could always copy misspandi like I did. The top picture is hers and the bottom is the fun area I created on my Squidport.
There are so many possibilities in your town using perspective. Hopefully you enjoyed seeing some of mine. While I know a bunch of these examples used items you may not have, trust me when I say there are probably many more ideas I havent even considered that are purely premium. If you have something you came up with, please share with us. The awesomeness of TSTO is all the great things different designers come up with!
Well, thats enough from me for now. Sound off below with any questions, comments, cussing or discussing you may have about all this. We love hearing from you. Happy designing and keep on tapa-tapa-tapping in the free world.

Lisa politely laughed at jokes and made compliments to his house, which he gladly accepted, talking about the peculiarities of maintaining the mansion. Volunteered to show her the house, not paying attention to the fact that she had already glanced around it.

Pace from pleasure. There was a distinct protrusion on her neck that indicated the position of the penis. The head and lips of Nrain often hit the dragon's genital slit, as if she were kissing him. The violence ended quickly, reaching the point, the dragon stopped, froze in her depths, holding her head tightly between her thighs.
Nrain felt how the member began to throb and pour out, hot streams of semen beat into her esophagus, this abundance flowed directly into the stomach.Simpsons Tapped Out-How to design your city-House Design

Then he approached her in a tight crushing to the desk, they merged again in a passionate kiss. Meanwhile, Vadim lightly ran his fingers over her navel and went down to her trousers, thrusting his palm under the trousers. He began to stroke her pubis, sinking closer and closer to her pussy. And when his hand almost found the beginning of her slit, he realized that his trousers would not let him go any.
