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.

Premium Guide: Chester and the Unfinished Shed

Here we are with another (admittedly late) premium guide. That’s right, we are going to help you with yet another purchase, generous aren’t we? However that is a different TopiX (see what I did there?) So lets jump into a post about the character who has never been shown on the show and has been mentioned once and even mentioned in the game a few times (EA sure pay attention to detail) and try to help you decide whether to buy him and his half shed.

We will start off with some show information on the unfinished shed and Chester Dupree followed by some game information on the duo. If you’re interested, read on!

Level 41 Has Arrived!!!!!

Hey tappity-tap-tap-Tappers! Just like we called it last night, not entirely but close, we ave just received the 41st level update for The Simpsons Tapped Out. We are all feverishly working on the full rundown of the update but let’s just say another couple reunites in the “new” Springfield we’ve all built. I can give a few details now but will get out a full Overview as soon as I can. After the jump there will be a basic run-through of the update.

Please check your Confirm Donut Spend Option in your Settings Menu. Many times an update will reset it to OFF which leads to unwanted donut purchases, rushing of tasks, etc.
