How Do the ___________ Items Affect the Conform-O-Meter? Multi-Update Guide

With all of the craziness that the holiday season brings, (by holiday season I mean October to January according to the stores in my area) we sometimes get lost in our real world responsibilities like families, jobs, etc. And sometimes we just get behind, which is the case with our Conform-O-Meter posts. We’ve missed a few updates and instead of posting them one by one I’m going to catch up, right here, all in one guide.

conform2According to my records we are missing everything after Level 45 so we’ll go from there and by the end of this will have covered everything up until Phase 2 of the current Christmas event.

Bye, Bye Birdie! Next Update Preparations

Well friends as of this writing which is December 2, 2014 @ 8:00 am EST, the battle between the Puritans and Vegan Natives has come to a peaceful end, the turkey has been cooked, eaten and served for leftovers and the third installment of the Tapped Out Thanksgiving Mini-Event has left the building.
I sincerely hope everyone got a chance to grab any or all of the limited-time goodies, but if you didn’t I’m pretty sure we’ll see it all again next year (unfortunate hint-hint EA!, stop rehashing over and over!)

What Changed with the Thanksgiving/Covercraft update?

Along with the new characters, buildings, and decorations which arrived with both the Thanksgiving update and the Covercraft episode tie-in update, there were a few additional changes worked into the game:

  • Four new character groups were added: Regular Male, Regular Female, Premium Male, and Premium Female. These are used to send groups of characters to various tasks in the Covercraft episode tie-in quests.
  • The sound file HOMER_JOB-GOOD1.caf was changed from playing when Homer gets assigned a good job to a bad job. This is the “D’oh” sound, which always seemed out of place when he said it for a good job.
  • This update added the “Heimlich Machine”, one frame of the animation of which, now altered, was found in the Halloween 2014 event.

That’s all I spotted from perusing the changes, let us know if you spot anything else. 🙂
