Keeping in line with re-releasing previous event content, EA has brought back Howard’s Flowers from the Valentine’s 2013 Event. It was offered for hearts with the original event and had a small part in the event quest line. This time around it is a premium item much like many returning items. As is usually the case many of you may need a little nudge in the way of deciding to purchase this item or leave it alone, possibly for good. Let’s take a better look at Howard’s Flowers.
I apologize in the huge delay with certain posts, been a very hectic past few days. I’d like to personally thank Flinster42 for his HUGE help in maintaining the site while many of us tend to personal business. Without him we’d be lost in the Valentine’s update maze.
I’m covering the nerdy, techy, numbers area for my good friend mrfy while he is on vacation (lucky!). As many of you heavily base purchases and actions within the game on the Conform-O-Meter and how items affect it, I’m here to assist you with the new items as well as the updated numbers for the returning items. Let’s begin shall we? The numbers are already giving me a headache so let’s hurry!
With the release of level 38 came a new building to effect our consumerism rating. So should you buy it well lets go through the pros and cons. In addition, let’s look at the background of the building too, as its a building with historic value to the show and it goes beyond the initial debut of season one. To learn more, just click to continue.
Level 38 adds two buildings: the Springfield County Courthouse and the Springfield Grocery Store. Decorations are the Lady Justice Statue, a Khlav Kalash Stand, the Knightboat and the Greenpeace Boat. Here is how the Conform-o-meter ratings are affected by the new items:
|Building or Item||Rating||Points|
|Springfield County Courthouse||Obedience||10|
|Springfield Grocery Store||Consumerism||10|
|Lady Justice Statue||Obedience||10|
|Khlav Kalash Stand||Gluttony||10|
The Married to the Blob episode tie-in update added one new decoration and enabled an older limited-time building. Both are limited time.
The Mr. Sparkle Billboard is a decoration which costs 30 donuts, provides 0.75% bonus money and XP, and gives 10 points to Consumerism. You can purchase multiple billboards, and they can be placed on grass, pavement, boardwalk, boardwalk edge or the beach..
The Swanky Fish restaurant is a repeat. It costs 90 donuts and provides 10 points to Gluttony.
Early this morning, well for me, the second Community Prize was awarded, Santa’s Workshop. Which means our next goal is at 800,000,000 and, since the lowering of the goals, seems highly attainable. For those of you looking for it, check your Inventory.Here’s a breakdown of Santa’s Workshop.
The 2013 Christmas update added a bunch of buildings and decorations. This post is about the new items and how they affect the Conform-o-meter. (For more information about the Conform-o-meter, see here. For more information about the other Conform-o-meter ratings and other technical details in the game, see here.)

I can honestly say that I was truly caught off guard with this year’s Thanksgiving update. Not that we got one but that we got an update that was much larger and longer one than the previous year’s. I’m also NOT complaining one bit about any of it and quickly snatched up all of the offerings of the update including Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino along with the Tribal Chief. We’ve also been given another added bonus with this item and that is the Casino Sign which rewards independently of the casino and the Tribal Chief. And once again I am going to do my best to help you decide on whether this combo is worth your coveted glazed ones. Let’s get to it shall we?
The Thanksgiving event update added one building and a few decorations, some new and some from last year’s Thanksgiving event. This post is about the items and how they affect the Conform-o-meter. (For more information about the Conform-o-meter, see here. For more information about the other Conform-o-meter ratings and other technical details in the game, see here.)
The new building which was added:
|Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino
Level 37 adds three buildings: the Bachelor Arms Apartments, the Office of Unemployment, and the Cracker Factory. Decorations are the Southern Cracker Fountain, the Fleet-A-Pita, and the Golden Calf Idol. There is also a Fleet-A-Pita for Krustyland. Here is how the Conform-o-meter ratings are affected by the new items:
|Building or Item||Rating||Points|
|Bachelor Arms Apartments
|Office of Unemployment
|Southern Cracker Fountain
|Golden Calf Idol
Some strange choices here with the buildings. I’d expect the Bachelor Arms to be Indolence, the Office of Unemployment be Obedience, and the Cracker Factory be Consumerism.
With the new level arrived new requirements to maximize your Conform-o-meter ratings. To stay 5 stars you need the following points at level 37:
This time they gave us a consumerism building, but the rating didn’t rise, for once.
