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 Changed with the Level 43 Update?

Along with the new character, buildings and decorations which arrived with the level 43 update, there were a few additional changes worked into the game:

  • Lou, Eddie, and Sherri & Terri can now visit Krustyland, though only after the start of the quest The Princess and the Pea Brain Part 2.
  • A new character group KrustylandGoers has been added. Members include Bart, Homer, Lisa, Marge, Skinner, Cletus, Krusty, Comic Book Guy, Wiggum, Milhouse, Hans Moleman, Squeaky Voice Teen, Martin, Kearney, Nelson, Otto, Sideshow Mel, Lenny, and Carl. At the moment this character group isn’t used, but could be utilized to send all the Krustyland characters on a joint task. Note that the group doesn’t include Princess Penelope, Lou, Eddie, or Sherri & Terri.
  • Shary Bobbins and Kumiko were moved from More Oddballs to a new character collection, Helpful Guest Stars. The Crazy Cat Lady was moved from Even More Oddballs to Helpful Guest Stars.

Level 42 Overview

Well I’m going to start this off on a happy note! I’m on holidays! Report cards are done, marking is finished and school holidays for me (a teacher) are here! This means I have a bit of catching up to do on the site. I am digging through our drafts, our premium guides and our TopiX History Files so that I can play some serious catch up in the next few weeks, I am first going to cover the things in the drafts, than any new update information and move on to things TopiX hasn’t yet covered from the past (you may see some easter things come up, sorry to bring that event back to mind). Anywho, you didn’t come here to read this! You came for a level overview! I guess that I am here to give you a full overview, one with information on the quest lines, game information, images and much much more. So instead of me telling you what I will write about, I am going to write about it. Please read on!

Premium Guide: Itchy & Scratchy Billboard

Hello Tappers!

We are now less than 12 days away from reaching the end of the Stonecutters event! However EA was kind enough to give us level during the half way point of the event for something to keep us occupied while collecting emblems. The new level of level 42 arrived in our towns and with every level there will always be some premium items that you want to buy but are unsure if you are going to make the right decision. Hopefully by the end of this post you will have a full guide on the Itchy and Scratchy Billboard which will go towards helping you make the decision of purchasing the decoration.

We will start off this post with some game information on the billboard followed by some researched history files. There will also be a list of pros and cons on purchasing this item along with a complete summary in my opinion. So let’s get started…

What Changed with the Level 42 Update?

Along with the new characters, buildings and decorations which arrived with the level 42 update, there were a few additional changes worked into the game:

  • New friendship level 9 was added.
  • Homer gained a new 6 hour task, Relax In The Brown House, similar to Apu’s task. It pays the same as his Lounge In The Pool task, $225 and 55 XP. A curious addition. One advantage of sending him to this new task is that you can store the brown house, but it’s an inside job, and the lounge in the pool task is amusing.
  • The Campfire (introduced with level 34 and Superintendent Chalmers) can now be placed on pavement in addition to beach and grass.
  • A tag of canUseOccupiedLocation=”false” was added to Dolph’s 24 hour job to Loiter With An Adult Magazine. This means he shouldn’t be able to pick an already occupied bench for this task.
  • The sound the Bloodmobile makes when you tap it changed. Continue reading
