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.

What have you done with Sanjay’s house? (Results)

Hi guys.

Update: Sorry for the very long delayed response to this post. Unfortunately, I got swamped with my day job and then with the addition of new levels and events it’s been hectic. Anyway, I know you’ve all been waiting so at the bottom of the post are the top 5 designs.  

With the introduction of level 39, came Apu’s family, Manjula and Sanjay and what better way to do a What have you done than with Sanjay’s house.

As you can remember, Sanjay’s house first appeared in the 7th season, at the start of 22 short stories of Springfield when Apu leaves the Kwik-E-Mart to go to Sanjay’s house to party like it was on sale for $19.99. Although it isn’t registered on the official map of Springfield, I did come to the conclusion that its very close to the Kwik-E-Mart as both Sanjay and Apu run to the party rather thank riding a scooter or driving a car. Also, Apu runs back. This is all done along with some other wild party things in 4 minutes. Well, that’s according to Hans Moleman anyway who thinks he would waste them if he got them back anyway.

Easter 2014 Preparation

Hello Tappers!

Instead of making you go off the Whacking Day 2014 preparation guide, I decided to make a one for the upcoming Easter event. Requested by Tom, one of our readers, I decided that we need to prepare for the Easter event and make it separate from the Whacking Day post just in case we have a Whacking Day event as well as the Easter event.

Bunny

Ok, so next week could be the possible update of Easter 2014 and with every update tappers need to be prepared! Just before the Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day event, I did a post about preparing for the events and it turned out to be a big success. For every player that might not have reached the top-level, you will need to prepare for this upcoming event. An event is always big and you most likely will need a lot of Money, Land, Friends and Donuts. So here is a guide to help you to prepare for Easter 2014.

Because there was no Easter event last year there is no information on what the Easter event could bring. The update could come anytime next week from around Tuesday to Friday with a speculation date of Wednesday. However other speculation says that it will arrive with the removal of the episode tie-in for ‘Days of Future Future’ on Tuesday.

Now, here is the preparation guide for Easter 2014:

The Silence of Sanjay

Hello Tappers!

Level 39 brought us no voiced characters which was a shame since the best thing about a character in tapped out is hearing their voice every time you tap them. The reason why Manjula was not voiced is because she is currently voiced by Maggie Roswell and her voice characters have not been voiced due to EA not registering her voice to the game. The reason why Sanjay is not voiced is because his voice actor Harry Shearer, is… wait a second did I just type that correctly?! Harry Shearer a voice actor for some of the voiced characters in our game!?

Friendship Level 6: E.A.R.L.

Hello Tappers!

I know that Jason already gave you a post on the new friendship prize ‘E.A.R.L.’, however I thought that was just an announcement post that we got a new friendship prize so I thought that I would do a full post on the new Friendship prize which will include both game information and history. Jason’s announcement post can be found here.

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 2.16.25 PM

So level 39 was the level that brought us a new friendship prize! I’m hoping that EA will continue this process with releasing a new friendship prize every level but first they need to stop making two month gaps for every level update!

We have reached our NEW final level of the friendship prize however lets just call it friendship prize level six! Level six unlocks a new building called E.A.R.L. (Electronic Automatic Robotic Lighthouse). Once you have collected Stampy as a friendship prize you are then required 5000 more FP to collect E.A.R.L., here is the full post on E.A.R.L. including some game information and history.
