The Return of The Episode Tie-Ins!

Hello Tappers!

I’m back! And I just kicked things off with an information post on the upcoming episode ‘Clown in the Dumps’. Before I get back into posting valid information about the game I thought I would just do a small speculation post to get the ball rolling.

Earlier this week we got the first episode tie-in update of season 26 for the episode ‘Clown in the Dumps’. The episode tie-ins have made a return but what future episodes of Season 26 will be featured in Tapped Out? As you know we don’t get an episode tie-in for every episode of the season, however, in this post I will be exploring some of the episodes that could make it into the game as an episode tie-in!

Sit back and relax and let the speculating begin!:

Episode Fact File: Clown in the Dumps

Hello there old friend. Remember me? I’m back on TopiX and after a good month off being on Holiday/Work, I’m ready to get the ball rolling with returning to TopiX! September has been a silent month for myself and I would really like to apologise for not being around this month. However as I post for the final days of September I just want to notify you that you’ll be seeing a LOT, A BIG LOT of me in October, with a HUGE BUNDLE of posts!

So to kick things off I thought I would just do an episode fact file. This week we got our FIRST episode tie-in update for season 26 and with the return of The Simpsons with season 26 it also means the return of the episode fact files. If you are new to TopiX then my episode fact files are just little teaser posts about the upcoming episode.

What Changed with the Season Premiere episode tie-in Update?

With today’s in-game update for the Season Premiere episode tie-in there was one change:

  • Base level building multipliers changed again, to get rid of the extra level which was added with the Level 45 update.
Level Old Multiplier New Multiplier
37 1.3 1
38 1.3 1.3
39 1.4 1.3
40 1.6 1.4
41 2.0 1.6
42 3.0 2.0
43 3.0 3.0
44 4.0 4.0
45 4.0 4.0

How is this used? Each building available for purchase with game $ has a base price. For example, a Level 37 building like the Bachelor Arms has a base price of $84,500 and it used to cost 1.3 times that, or $109,850. But now the multiplier is just 1 times, so it costs $84,500. Usually when a new level is released, the multipliers adjust so that older buildings become cheaper, and the new level’s buildings are at 4 times the base price. So if you wait for newer levels to come out, the buildings will get cheaper.

Season Premiere episode tie-in update released!

An episode tie-in update has arrived in time for the Season Premiere. It’s an in-game update and Krusty starts the action. If you have Sideshow Mel in your game, he also gets tasks.
