    Tapped Out has a music festival event (how fitting, since Lollapalooza just started and it made my walk to work all the more congested) and it's pretty good! Seems to be all in-universe, with The Jazz Hole and Bleeding Gums, the Sungazer band from Covercraft, a Flaming Moes skin for Moe's (finally!) and other musical nods to come.
    UP AND ATOM!

    I actually gave up on the time travel event halfway through and deleted the Tapped Out app. The whole "push the player to buy premium characters" aspect of the game felt like it had reached its worst, with everything took way too long for me to be able unlock most of the prizes thanks to the searching for fossils gameplay, and pretty much every character you could unlock without spending money was boring and uninteresting. Around the second act, I realized that everything was becoming a chore and wondered to myself why I was still playing this game, and just gave up.

    But I got bored and downloaded the app again to try out this new update. And while it looks like the developers are still pushing the "give the players least interesting characters to unlock and the most interesting ones are premium" agenda (I mean really, Bleeding Gums is premium but the ones you can unlock for free are the rival band from Covercraft...who even remembers those characters?), at least the band gameplay is more interesting and much more easier to unlock stuff then in the time travel event. I'll probably finish the rest of the event as long as the gameplay doesn't become ridiculously difficult to unlock items or something. I do like that Cletus is getting an alternate costume in this event though (at least judging from the Act 3 tease), I'd rather have alternate outfit for other characters then just Homer outfit #674. Weird Al's inclusion is pretty surprising to me though. Is he the first celebrity guest star character that was added to the game since Stephen Hawking in 2016's sci-fi event?

    I do love the new title screen drawing though. Not only does the art style totally different from the usual, but it also features most of the Simpsons family instead of just Homer, which is a plus for me.

    One weird thing about the game I want to bring up though. I recently got the chance to play the Simpsons Game on an HD console for once (I had only played the game on the Wii and DS versions), and I was shocked to realize that all the music and a good chunk of the voiced clips for Tapped Out are just reused from the Simpsons Game. I mean, it's not something that really bothers me and it does sort of make sense since both games were developed by EA, but it does make me wonder what kind of licensing deal over the voice actors happened in between games in where the Simpsons Game can have all the characters voiced by their usual voice actors with no problems, but by Tapped Out the only characters that are voiced are from the main six actors.

    I vowed to no longer spend money on tapped out and what do I do? 15 spent on donuts. I hate this game, it's like a bad drug

    Apparently he's one of the band members from the episode Covercraft (the one where Homer and a bunch of dads start a band) who invite Apu to join them.

    But yeah, it's probably not a good idea to make one of the unlockable rewards in an event end up being a character so obscure, he does not even have his own character page on the Simpsons wiki's...either of them.

    Anyone else have a bug where if you go anywhere near the stage the game crashes? I’ve been contacting EA but they won’t seem to help me. I may have to sit this event out altogether.
    ah (as in apple)-tuh-eef

    Maybe EA is slow to respond because others have it possibly? They always respond to my reports even if I don't post in the forum like they ask. And I usually get free donuts, too.

    I doubt this, but would anyone be willing to make a panaromic image of my town, in return for Simpsons related art (I'm good at it, lol)? I've waited so long for EA to add a feature that let's us take full screenshots of our towns but they're most likely never going to. I honestly don't feel like stitching together a million screenshots in Photoshop to make one so if anyone is up for it, PM me please.

    Take screens of your town and then try "File > Automate > Photomerge" in Photoshop

    This year's THOH event is pretty good, some long awaited THOH characters were added (like the creepy shopkeeper) and they actually give you a lot of time to complete the tasks. I haven't had to visit friend's towns and usually had 3-4 days before the end of each part of an event.

    I feel the opposite to be honest. This may be the worst event yet. First off, the mechanics of it are boring and the same as they’ve been for years now (send certain characters to do some task and craft useless bullshit). Only this time they keep adding monsters to “capture” without even adding any more characters that can do so. Without buying premium characters, that means you’re stuck with only 3 eligible people the entire time. Also, as has also recently been the case, there is nothing worthwhile that doesn’t cost donuts here, so it’s almost pointless to even bother with the dumb update

    Yeah I dropped some spare donut on Wizard Martin and he is the only reason I'm making any progress with any of the enchanting and stuff. Kinda wish they had more decorations to cycle through when you release the monsters because I have so many of those stone beds or whatever.

    And I am beyond sick of the high rate of premium item now, yea.

    The fact that I'm almost halfway though the third act and so far I've only been able to unlock four whole characters without having to use premium currency (and that two of them were just given to me at the start of the event) feels like it's a serious issue because that means that not only does it take forever to fight these trolls, but I'm pretty sure that once you run of trolls to fight, getting currency becomes a lot harder. The only reason I'm doing fairly well so far is because I already unlocked Magician Milhouse from the Burns Casino event from like two years (man, time flies...) and he's a playable character for this event. Even then I had to spend some donuts to unlock Greystash because I missed the deadline. This is starting to feel like one of the worst cases of the games tendency to hide all the characters behind expensive prices. Also what's the point of unlocking characters like Werewolf Flanders from previous THOH events if they contribute nothing to this event?

    And I'm not sure how to feel about this whole "Put characters and buildings in 60 donut boxes and hope you randomly get what you want" gimmick. I mean I was lucky enough to get Rockstar Maggie, but I don't really feel like wasting donuts on trying to get Devil Flanders and Maude.

    On the plus side, I've made some great progress on Springfield Heights and I'm about 6/10's on the way there now, so I once finish that and maybe giving Cecil enough money, I'll be done with the app.

    I forgot to even mention this monstrosity. I wasted 120 donuts on bullshit before realizing “oh it knows which ones people want the least and intentionally gives you those”

    I quit playing for a while because the wizard event was a drag. I log back in and it's still making me fight the barfly monsters ("wouldn't want you to miss out!!!")

    I got inspiration for my creation also from this game and it's design

    I know the Tapped Out community here is pretty dead, but I've kept playing (thanks to long commutes and free donut hacks). There's a micro event happening now with long awaited Who Shot Mr. Burns items including the sun blocker, the city hall sun dial, the scale model of Springfield which Burns attacks and the Chez Guevara nightclub.
