Hello Everyone, This is another guest post from Flinster42. It seems that a lot of you took an interest in his last post and I’m happy to announce that he will be doing three more posts on the possible cars in Springfield. Hope you enjoy this wonderful post and now I’m going to hand it over to Flinster42:
Hey guys, Flinster42 here again with another guest post! Before I jump into it I would just like to take the time to thank all of the writers of this website, they have done a magnificent job to pick up the pieces and soldier on after what I like to call “The incident”. I would like to especially thank Mickus and nathanrushton as they have given me heaps of support and encouragement, it means a lot.
On to the post! As I mentioned in my last post (Which can be found here). I will be doing a three-part post on Cars! I will be covering what the future of The Simpsons Tapped Out could have in store for cars. This will be a three-part post, this first one involving what cars could be added in the future, the second explaining what could be done with the cars (adding onto streets etc.) and the third with how the current ones could be utilized more effectively. If any of you guys comment with other suggestions on the car posts I could make a fourth as well which would include your views.
In this game we have seen quite a few cars added and recently added was the first non-premium car “Chalmer’s 1979 _onda”.
Other cars that have been included in the game are:
- Frinksonic MHV which was limited time decoration with the season 24 yard sale event.
- The “piece of crap car” that Nelson interacts with on his 30 minuet task.
- The Police Car.
- The Duff Party Bus. Another limited time decoration with the season 24 yard sale event.
- The Duff Racer. A Limited time item that was unlocked during the season 24 episode tie-in episode.
- Others include The Channel 6 News Van, The Ambulance, Burns limo and the S.W.A.T Van.
The ones that I’m not completely sure you could put in this category are the school bus, Krustyland shuttle and that left hand roadster, the S.W.A.T. van could also be questionable as it brought characters, but I decided to include it.
Anyways this post is about what cars could be added in the future. This is such a broad category, anything could be added! This time next year we could have the characters’ cars on the streets, we already have the Burns limo, but for now I will stay away from character cars and look for other ones that could be added. So, I have come up with 12 vehicles that could be added to the game, they will be explained in the next few paragraphs:
To come up with some new vehicles I thought of some of the ones that we already have in the game, I thought of the police car and the ambulances and the first thing that came to mind was fire trucks, this could be added in an update that comes with Springfield Fire station (and perhaps fireman costumes for Homer, Moe, Apu and Skinner). Keeping with vehicles with a purpose I thought of a taxi, and a stretched limo, these could be nice additions to the game, helping the people get in a taxi when they are to lazy to walk (the taxi could also have some incorporation with the TV show “taxicab conversations” [an episode where homer bags out his family on TV and they treat him to rock & roll camp] (this update could also come with the camp) and the stretched limo would certainly jazz up any Springfield.
I realize I said I wouldn’t go into characters’ cars but this one is to good to leave out, in the past I have whined that there is not enough things in my schoolyard and this next vehicle is here to fix that, “Willy’s tractor”. The tractor is in quite a few episodes and gives Willy another thing to interact with, I think it would be a good addition. I also thought of a semi-trailer/camper trailer although I can’t think of anyone who lives in one off the top of my head.
The next six all require explanations or the telling of its origin, these include “The Homer”, “Truckasaurus”, Homer’s Ambulance, Homer’s Ice Cream Van, Really tall man’s car and last but not least the Canyonero.
The Homer was a car that Homer designed when Herb, his half-brother gave him a job, Herb was intrigued with Homers way of going about cars and decided to give him a shot. The car did horribly, no one liked it and Herb went out of business, what a happy ending! However The Homer could make a triumphant return to the game TSTO! Bringing it to the glory that Homer always wanted. Perhaps Herb could even be included….
The Truckasaurus, a 20 ton and four car high mega monster, it’s a truck/dinosaur type vehicle weird thing. I don’t know exactly how to explain it and I am not sure how it could be put in the game but I’m sure EA could find a way, even if it just does minimal moving (sort of like the popsicle tower).
Homer’s ambulance (pictured above). So Homer buys an ambulance, weird huh? He then becomes an ambulance driver and maybe saves a few lives, come on Homer… He then becomes overtired and stressed, however the ambulance is still pretty cool!
Homers ice cream van. Homer’s favorite ice cream man passes away, Homer is distraught and decided to take over the business, kids love him and he loves it! It’s a win-win and it could be for TSTO as well! This vehicle could come with some awesome tasks for a lot of the kids (and of course homer).
The really tall man’s car: Nelson, being the bully he is makes fun of the really tall man and the fact that he can hardly fit in the car, however the tall man makes fun of Nelson. One of the few times we see Nelson scared. This car could come with the really tall (unnamed man) and could include some hilarious tasks for Nelson!
Canyonero, whenever I hear that word I think of this song:
Basically in this episode, Krusty tries to go straight, he actually finds his stride as a comedian, but in the end sells out and endorses the Canyonero, finding us once again, back to where we are (something I love about TV shows). I love this car, but mainly because of its song! Could involve some tasks with Krusty.
Well this has been my second guest post and the first installment of my three-part car posts, cant wait to hear your feedback or maybe you can think of a car I missed out? Maybe you disagree and one of these shouldn’t be added or maybe you have a car related question that I could do a post about. I am very excited for the second installment of the three-part car posts and hopefully it will be out soon.
