Outsiders’ Musings XLV: No picnics!

Well, I’d like to start off by saying this is my 50th post on TopiX, as well as my 45th Outsiders’ Musings (including at Tips), and only a few weeks before the year anniversary of this site. Thank you to all my loyal readers who take a look every weekend.

Also, thanks for the huge reaction to my post about hacks last week. I think we certainly debated it well.

In this edition, I am going to address a few important issues. The first of which is the lack of picnic tables available on Tapped Out. Continue reading

Updated: Season 25 (29/09/13)

Hey everyone, I know that this site is focusing on the game “The Simpsons tapped out”, But we wouldn’t be here today without the famous cartoon show “The Simpsons”. Now The Simpsons is reaching its 25th season and this could possibly mean an update on Thursday for an episode tie-in update (Possible Update, Not Confirmed). So since we have Season 25 coming to the Simpsons, I thought that I would put up three videos which will give you three teasers on the first episode of the season “Homerland”, Enjoy:

As you can see The Simpsons look like they are not going to disappoint. I’m not guaranteeing an update on Thursday for an episode tie-in, but I think there is an 89% chance that It could happen! Below is a small guide on the episode “Homerland”:

An FBI agent helps Lisa find out why Homer suddenly becomes polite after attending a nuclear power convention. Guest star: Kristen Wiig. 

I know that in some parts of the world that this season will not be coming out until maybe next year, but I thought It would be nice to add these videos into a post and maybe give you a teaser. I know that this may have nothing to do with the game, but without the show we would not have the game and a new season could mean episode tie-ins. Thanks again – Nathan.

Donuts In September: To spend or not to spend, That is the question?

Hello everyone

This post is based on the high amount of questions we’ve had come through the comments recently. A lot of people have been asking us what to spend their donuts on. Well there may be a post on that coming soon but there is no reason to spend your donuts now. Here are some reasons why you should hold on to your donuts:

We are currently reaching that time again where EA start to release Limited time items with their episode tie-in updates. Now every episode tie-in the items are always limited and some can only be purchased using donuts. Apart from Fat Tony being released again with the Level 28 update we have not seen any items from an episode tie-in return. The Season 25 premier will feature an episode called “Homerland” And there might just be an episode tie-in update to promote the episode.

Here are some of my speculations that could happen in the update. We could get another new costume for homer, “Polite Homer”, We could get a new building with his costume “nuclear power convention” Building. We could get the FBI agent as a character in the update? Anything could happen and that is why you should not spend your donuts just yet. This is all speculation by myself and these updates are usually limited time.

Here is a description of the episode “Homerland”

An FBI agent helps Lisa find out why Homer suddenly becomes polite after attending a nuclear power convention.

Another reason why you should hold onto your donuts is that Halloween is just around the corner and the next major celebrated holiday. Last years Halloween was spectacular and I’m sure that EA will try their hardest to beat last years Halloween update. Kang is set to return which is a big thumbs up to android players and Kodos has been speculated aswell to arrive with Kang but she is also been said to arrive in an episode tie-in. The Halloween Event will have plenty of premium items and will sure be limited. This is yet another reason why you should not spend your donuts just yet.

Poll: The Bi-Weekly Updates?

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to touch on the recent updates and the speculation that EA is planning to release an update every 2 weeks. For the past month or so we have had a quite a few full updates and levels intoduced into our games. Here are the dates of the recent updates:

06/28/13 – 4th July 2013 Update.

07/15/13 – Level 31 Update.

07/25/13 – Level 32 Update.

07/31/13 – Krustyland Update.

08/15/13 – Level 33 Update.

08/29/13 – Level 34 Update.


As it seems from the above schedule we are frequently getting updates and it seems, without confirmation, that EA is planning an update, roughly, every 2 weeks. Based on this “theory”, the next update should come on or around September 12. Based on the theory above and a LOT of speculation, I have created a tentative schedule of what I hope the upcoming releases are and when. Keep in mind this is all guess and speculation and do not count this info as written in stone. With all of that being said, here is my guess of the schedule of the next few updates. Again, this is just for fun and until, if ever, we receive more definitive info regarding update schedules, do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT accept this an official release.

09/12/13 – Level 35 Update.

09/26/13 – Season 25 Episode 1 Tie-In Update.

10/03/13 – Halloween 2013 Update.

10/14/13 – Level 36 Update.

Please remember that this is just my view on the updates we could see in September/October. If EA are telling the truth about fortnight content then we should see a lot of updates which is both good and bad. But post your views below in the poll and comment section about the Fortnight content. Here is a small preview of the first episode of season 25 and could give you some Idea’s of what we could see in the game.


Other episodes that are airing this season are “The Man Who Came to Be Dinner” This was supposed to be the season 24 finale and release Kodos in an episode tie-in. There is also the traditional Treehouse of Horror which would bring the Halloween Update. There is also “Four Regrettings and a Funeral”, which is based around Kent Brockman getting a Job at Fox News. I hope these episodes give you some idea of the possible episode tie-in updates we could have in the upcoming months. I honestly hope this is true about the Fortnight Updates, But what are your views? Please have a vote in the poll and have your say in the comment section below. I have one more post to complete from our good friend Flinster42 then I will be back to work and only post rarely. Thanks again-Nathan.



UPDATE:The results of the poll will be posted on the 9th of September, This will make a gap between the possible update of Level 35.
