Wild West


April 19, 2016 - May 30, 2016

The Wild West 2016 Event was the second major event of 2016 and the 20th major event overall. It was released on April 19, 2016 and ended on May 30, 2016. It was the one hundred and seventeenth content update for The Simpsons: Tapped Out.

With this update, several permanent changes were made.

  • A new groundcover Dirt, as well as a new road Dirt Road were added.
  • For the Task Book there were added new Quest Badges, which show if quests are limited, completed, available to start or already in use.
  • The character finder was updated and now shows completed tasks in addition to the usual idle characters.
  • A Homer icon shows up next to a task in a character's task list that is visual.
  • Buildings with a payout of 24h or less can no longer be sped up with donuts.
  • A new strip of land parallel to the mountains was added to the farthest right.

As with the most recent events, it was divided into three acts, scheduled as following:

  • Act 1: April 19, 2016 - May 03, 2016
  • Act 2: May 03, 2016 - May 17, 2016
  • Act 3: May 17, 2016 - May 30, 2016

On April 27, Gil offered a new deal, the Bandit Fort for 200 donuts.

Currencies[edit | edit source]

With the event following the prize system introduced with the Treehouse of Horror XXV Event, several currencies needed to be introduced to keep track of players' progresses. We got one independent currency for each act prize track progress, those were: Clues (Clues) in Act 1, Deputy Badges (Deputy Badges) in Act 2, and TNT (TNT) in Act 3.

Another group of currencies added, were the trade currencies, unlike the prize track ones this ones were available until the end of the event once introduced. Act 1 had only Pickaxes (Pickaxes) and Hats (Hats (Wild West)); Act 2 added Guns (Guns) to the mix; and in Act 3 the fourth and final one, Gold Coins (Gold Coins), were added.

All currencies available in one act could be obtained from different methods.

  • Tapping Bandits, yielded prize track currency and one type of trade currencies.
  • Characters with Town Plaza Jobs gave prize track currencies as well as trade currencies of the ongoing craze once the job was assigned.
