You will find in this section all The Simpsons: Tapped Out buildings has to offer. To build your Springfield town and make it unique in Tapped Out you must obtain understand which building is best to obtain before using those fully cooked donuts. The buildings in The Simpsons: Tapped Out not only give you more income taxes but also allow you to unlock special characters to join your Springfield town. Have you noticed that some origin friends have more characters than you? Then it’s simple. You must purchase Tapped Out buildings to have new characters join your Springfield town.

To purchase a building, simply tap on the hammer and chainsaw icon at the bottom right. Once you have done this, simply tap on the house beside the tree icon on the bottom right. This will bring you to all of Tapped Out’s buildings and what they have to offer. Most of Tapped Out’s buildings are priced in two different currencies, cash or donuts. Cash purchased buildings require you to be at a certain level and/or have completed a certain quest with your Tapped Out city. Donut purchases are not restricted and you may purchase them into your town at any given level if you have the donuts to pay for it.

We will try to list as many tapped out buildings as possible, if you have images and would like to submit them please send them to [email protected]

    There is a problem with the game’s entry logic if you have a large number of buildings. I am able to get into the game once per day when I collect my daily reward. after that the game always crashes back to the iPad icons screen. Today, I did not crash out of the game, but instead went to friends area and processed 1 friend. When I attempted to return to my Springfield, the game crashed out to my iPad’s icon screen and now I can not get back into the game. This behavior of getting in to collect the daily reward and then successful entry into my Springfield has been consistant for the last 4 days. Yesterday I took down (put in inventory) over 100 purple houses. When I attempted to return from the “move house” area back to my Springfield, the game crashed and from then on I could not get back into the game until the next days when my daily collection for playing timer had been met. The day before, I had taken down 16 purple houses and then attempted to return to my Springfield, only to crash out.

      OK, I figured it out – too many houses with Christmas lights. After I was able to get in this morning as described above, 1 shot per day, I took the christmas lights off of 300 houses. After that, I eventually crashed out, but this time, I was able to get back into my Springfield. I have had no further issues with getting back in all day, so . . . . you should limit your Christmas lighted houses to under say 300.

        hey I have been having problems for the last bout 2 weeks or so and it is the same as yours with the donut stopping on the loading screen thing…… I can’t even get past that though I have never gotten lucky with it…. Sad thing is I only have like 4 houses with the decorations on it………. and I don’t have that many buildings either. Any advice?

            January 19, 2013

            Another thing I thought of: add more road so your characters can spread out and it creates space i.e. less buildings given total available space.
            I assume you are able to get in once per day at least?

  19. Bill Winsky
    January 02, 2013

    Once again, I am not able to play the game. I tap to continue past the login screen and the doughnut turns and stops and then I am thrown out to the iPad icon screen with no error message. For the past 2 days, I was able to get in for about 3 minutes before the game crashed out, then having crashed out, I am not able to get back in as described above.
    My thought here is that there are memory issues on the server, either a memory leak or insufficient memory to display all my buildings. Now, I will admit, I am playing an aggressive strategy where I have approxamately 450 purple houses, 250 blue houses, 225 white houses, all of the commercial buildings, including premium buildings, except Hibert’s practice and the hospital. However, I see no documentation on limitations of buildings, so it should be supported.
    I have bought about $160 worth of doughnuts. This is way more than I would normally spend on a game and I have enjoyed the game, but I don’t think Origin does a very good job with games. As such, EA should probably give me my own server.

    I had the same problem. I was level 20 with no new quests past Moes. I ended up starting a new one and now I’m at level 15 building Springfield Downs. I waited over a month on my first game but it never happened. I still log into it once in a while but still no new quests. I just collect the money and log out. Too bad too because I had about 80 friends on that town.

      It can take a while until this quest shows up, I was at level 20 and had to wait 3 days (even though I was playing constantly) for it to show up while completing seemingly meaningless tasks. It will be Comic Book Guy who starts this quest but until then you’ll have to be patient.

    Moving buidlings doesn’t work. I can’t select the move button. what can I do?

  70. TheUndertow
    March 24, 2012

    Yup – you have to delete Concrete from underneath before you can select the building above.

    Its not cost, just a little extra work.

    Finally got Bart unlocked around Lvl 14 – seems to have more to do with finishing build-up quests than your Level.

    • Phil
      March 25, 2012

      Yes, the game follows a strict order when it comes to tasks. So you can only unlock and build stuff once you have completed the programmed in tasks, no matter what level you are on 🙂

  71. Jamie
    March 18, 2012

    I’m having trouble moving Some buildings and objects. When I tap on them it just says place pavement. This is only for a few buildings as I have been able to move others!

    • Phil
      March 19, 2012

      Try to delete that pavement if it selects the pavement instead of the building you are trying to move. It seems to be a bug in the game but since pavement, roads and water are free you can delete and rebuild those as often as possible. Even if the building has already been placed you can put pavement underneath it. 🙂

  72. Nasher
    March 18, 2012

    Add the Pavilion to the list maybe?.. adding it from decorations gives Springfield’s intellectuals the ability to have 3 ours Mensa meetings… so it functions more like a mini building, just without the regular income.

  73. Andy
    March 15, 2012

    I’m currently level 10 and I don’t seem to get new quests.
    The last one was at level 5. I was supposed to get letter grated beef part 1 made with U.S.D.A. at level 7.
    How is this possible and what does U.S.D.A. stand for?

    • Phil
      March 16, 2012

      U.S.D.A. stands for US Department of Agriculture. It is the department that among other things controls and grades all food products in the US.

      5 Levels is a long time without a quest though especially 5 of the lower levels. Do none of your characters have any tasks? Unfortunately the tasks don’t come to you by the time you get to a certain level but they have to be done in a strict order. For example if you haven’t done certain things you won’t be getting Level 5 tasks, even if you are in Level 10. Make sure all the buildings you were supposed to build so far have been built.

    My question:

    Does anyone now why there are two kwik-e-marts and two Krusty Burgers? I just unlocked the second kwik-e-mart at level 12 which costs $19,500.

    • Phil
      March 16, 2012

      Because you can build as many of them as you want 🙂 There are more than just one Krusty Burger in Springfield. It will increase your Gluttony and Consumerism rating.

      • Max
        March 19, 2012

        Except there’s only 1 Kwik-E-Mart in Springfield. And in the town there is only 1 krusty burger too. Krusty Burger is a chain.. but with only one location in Springfield. D’oh! So far that’s the only thing I’ve noticed that seemed odd. They should have made some other buildings instead. I made a list of about 100+ objects, characters, and buildings they could add to this game. It’s never ending!

        March 19, 2012

        No, you don’t need 2 kwik-e-marts before you build the nuclear plant.

        The second Krusty Burger and second Kwik-E-Mart are optional.

        • clane
          March 22, 2012

          well, it may be just a coincidence then, because after I built the 2nd one, Apu came and said he needed more power, ant that started off the power plant quests

        Max is right, u do not need 2 kwik-2-marts or krusty burger to get the nuclear plant just dont get n a hurry and make them do long missions cause that could cause you to have to wait longer for it

    People… to get the gulp n’ blow or other quests you have to first finish other quests. You must do them in order. Just because you reach a level that has a building doesn’t guarantee your access to it immediately.

    For example.. if you reach level 11 you aren’t automatically going to be able to place the power plant. First, you have to “catch up” in your series of quests until you have first done Springfield Elementary and Willie’s Shack.

    Well, if you have Principal Skinner bird watching for 24 hours… then you will have to wait for him to finish before a ” ! ” icon appears above him to move forward with another quest. If you have Lisa doing homework for 24 hours… even though it’s time for the next house in evergreen terrace part V… you won’t get to unlock the house.

    Be careful in assigning characters to long missions (like making homer watch TV) because by the time it comes ready to place the gulp n’ blow you may actually be slowing yourself down. Your quests may be ready to start gulp in blow (which involves homer first eating at krusty burger 2 times in a row for 30 mins) but if you have him doing something else like watching monkey trauma on TV then you won’t get to start the gulp n’ blow quests right away.

    Don’t slow yourself down. 🙂

      I get no new quests. Level 10. How long have I wait after skinners bird watching that he gets an “!” sign?

        I don’t believe that. You will get new quests once you progress. You could have already progressed but the characters that start the next quest are currently occupied on other tasks. Try unoccupying all your characters. Don’t give them tasks. Apu, lisa, Homer, Krusty, Skinner, Willy, Bart, etc. will all start quests to build buildings. If you have Apu working at the kwik-e-mart when it’s time to build the power plant you are slowing yourself down and out of luck. He starts the Power Plant quests. So you can’t keep occupying him doing other things. Otherwise your quest will never appear.

          This is the situation:
          The last character I got was skinner. I did all the tasks of every character.
          The last building I got was the elementary school.
          Since the level I got Krusty he is in my taskbook but I cant do anything with him. There will be no task for him to do.
          I am level 13 now and since 48 hours nobody do a job. I just collect the money from houses. Exept the collect taxes and cletus farm tasks there will be no new task in my taskbook since days.
          cant believe that….

            Skinner has to go Bird Watching and I think Monitor the Halls and maybe even be the crossing guard before willie’s shack opens up.

            Forget the second krusty burger and the second kwik-e-mart.

            They do nothing.

          the last building was the second kwik e mart… but nothing else since then

    what do you need to do to achieve the quest for gulp and blow

    • Max
      March 19, 2012

      Homer has to eat Breakfast Lunch and Dinner at Krusty Burger first. Then he gets tired of eating there and you get the Gulp N’ Blow.

      To get to that point you first have to complete all the other quests that lead up to it.

    Any idea how to achieve “The New Evergreen Terrace” requirement?

      It differs each time. Lisa always does those quests. They are always in order. You must finish 1 quest before you can get to move to the next.
