I think we’re way past due on a few fun articles instead of the normal wave of walkthroughs and guides, which are vital but we need to mix things up a bit right?
One of the great new additions to come with the Wild West event was 2 new surface tiles: dirt and dirt roads. These new tiles are the first and only additions to the surface options to be added since the game’s inception and were a welcome addition to the game. I literally heard a collective “Yaay!” across the Tapped Out Design world when these came and many of you went right to work on making these fit perfectly into your terrifically designed towns. To others, however, these new tiles brought on many a puzzled facial expressions. “How can I use these?” “What’s the best way to fit dirt into my game?” and so on and so forth.
One of the more popular articles that used to be a regular series on a long ago shuttered Tapped Out blog was the “What Have You Done with ……?” post series. A few sites still in existence today still roll out their version of this concept which are favored articles to many readers. The purpose of these articles are to give you, the reader, a chance to show off your primo design skills and for others, a chance to get some really good design ideas for when they are stumped or have hit a wall. I’ve created a group on Flickr dedicated to this very idea and there are tons upon tons of groups, pages, and sites also dedicated to the design aspect of Tapped Out.

So, to bring back a popular post series and give you all your shot of having your designs published here, I present to you the rejuvenation of the “What Have You Done with…..?” series and want to know,
“What Have You Done with the Dirt and Dirt Road Surface Tiles?”
This is your chance to open your games, go to your best or favorite part of town that you have used the new tiles, take a screenshot and share it with Topix and all of our readers. Not only will it allow you to show everyone your design skills but also help others gain design ideas. I know myself, I am having a tough time making the dirt work so I am desperately in need of design ideas.
