Space is Hot Right Now[edit]

Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 1[edit]

After the user logs in on March 9:
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Just look at Springfield. A few years ago, there was nothing here but acres of healthy green grass.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
It was just your typical post-nuclear-catastrophe wasteland. Lush greenery as far as the eye could see.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
And now, it's a bustling town once again.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Honestly, I'm unimpressed.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Seriously? Look at all the houses, and decorations, and people...
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
I don't see too many premium items...
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Well, no. The owner of this town really SHOULD sink more cash into the project. It's money so well spent...
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
If you let two entrepreneurial guys like us loose in here, it'd be RIDICULOUS how much we'd get done.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
What are you proposing?
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
I don't know. We need a project. What are kids excited about today?
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I read somewhere that they like soccer, and the color green. And positivity. They dislike rudeness and shades of green they feel are too light or too dark.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Hmmm. Not much to go on. We need to do a little market research.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Let's hire some kids to be our ears.
Task: Make Lisa Research What Kids Are Into (2h, Springfield Elementary or Simpson House)
If the user has Database: Task: Make Database Do an Online Opinion Poll (2h, Java Server)
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
The results are in, and the numbers could not be clearer. Kids are into space.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
And the hottest, most trending site in all of space is a little rock called... Mars.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Then that's where we need to go. We should organize a mission to Mars.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Keep in mind we have zero expertise -- and zero interest, to be honest -- in rocketry, math, exploration, or the future.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
But what we do have is passion. And passion will get you to Mars faster than any rocket.
System Message We're not joking about this. Everybody loves space. Check out our tribute to the great beyond in the store!

Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 2[edit]

After completing Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 1:
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I've been doing some research, and here's what no one will tell you -- going to Mars is EXPENSIVE. It costs MONEY.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Yes, but raising money is EASY when you have passion.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
The moment our friends in the private sector get a load of our passion, they'll be throwing money at us.
Task: Reach Level 11 and Build the Control Building
Task: Make Mr. Burns Cough Up Money (2h, Burns Manor or Control Building)
If the user has The Rich Texan: Task: Make Rich Texan Sponsor a Mars Mission (3h, Town Hall)
If the user has Artie Ziff: Task: Make Artie Ziff Waste His Money, Too (4h, Java Server)
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I told you raising $20 billion would be easy.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
And just like that... we can afford to turn on the lights.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
I agree. Besides a launch vehicle, a Mars lander, habitats capable of sustaining life on a barren rock...
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
...some way to grow food there, a means of communicating with Mars, and a staff of thousands here on Earth to monitor our Mars colony...
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Other than that, all we need is astronauts.
Quest reward: Exploration Inc., Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 3[edit]

After completing Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 2:
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
We need some way to attract astronauts to our Mars mission.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
We should put on a show. Really dazzle the people. But not just any show.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
No. It should be the best show.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I almost want to capitalize that name. The Best Show. That's how good this astronaut-finding show will be.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
We'll serve refreshments. Drinks, appetizers, handburgers...
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
The word is “hamburgers.”
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
That's neither here Nora, there. How's Tuesday at 9:00 PM work for you?
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
It's as good a time as any other. Now let's find us some astronauts!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I'll go! I'm your first volunteer Martian!
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Former astronaut Homer Simpson! What an honor.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Last time I went to space, I almost killed everybody.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Great, great. We'll give your application serious consideration.
Task: Make Adults Attend Town Meeting [x4] (3h, Town Hall)
Excluded Character: Homer
Task: Make Homer Try to Fit Into His Old Spacesuit (3h, Town Hall)
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I think that went well. But why so many questions about what we'll do if we find life on Mars? I thought Martians were science fiction.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
I wouldn't know. I'm not a sci-fi guy. Space stories always bored me, frankly.
System Message Skeptical about life on Mars, eh? Well wait until they get a load of this guy.
Number 51 Message.png
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 4[edit]

After completing Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 3:
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
The thing about space rockets is, if you don't build them EXACTLY right, they blow up.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
It's really no different than when we started that coffee company.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Refresh my memory -- why didn't that coffee idea work?
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
It would have, except it turns out there are already three coffee stores on every street corner in the civilized world.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
That's right. Circling back to this Mars fiasco, why don't we use some of our second-tier astronaut candidates to test out the equipment?
Task: Make “Candidates” Be Guinea Pigs [x3] (6h, Exploration Inc.)
Excluded Character: Homer
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Were you as deeply moved as I was by the sight of most of our Mars equipment not blowing up when tested?
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
A 65% success rate. It's pretty awe-inspiring.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
So the only remaining question is: who do we blast off to Mars for the rest of their lives?
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
All I know for certain is: not Homer Simpson. Other than that, it's wide open, my friend.
System Message Tune into this week's Simpsons and find out who the real candidates will be. Sunday 8/7 Central on FOX!

Premium Gameplay[edit]

A Colony For Ants[edit]

A Colony For Ants Pt. 1[edit]

After buying Mars Colony:
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png It is with great excitement and a profound sense of honoring my calendar that I attend the opening of this... thing.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
It's a model of Exploration, Incorporated's Mars habitat! In every detail, it's just like the real thing!
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png People are going to be living in THAT? The kitchen doesn't even have an island! My gods, there's no home theater!
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
It's no McMansion, that's for sure. But it's got everything our intrepid pioneers will need as they colonize a new world!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I'm pretty sure even pioneers need a hot tub. Where the hell are they supposed to soak away their cares? Answer me that, geniuses.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Luxurious, it's not. I will grant you that. But the spirit of adventure will--
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Let's call it what it is -- a dump! There's zero flow, the ceilings can't be more than seven feet, and I see no molding, crown or otherwise.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png If that's the future, count me out!
Task: Make Homer Mock Mars (6s, Mars Colony)
On job start:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I mean how can you live on Mars, if you can't even fit in the hab?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png You could probably fit a puppy in there, though. Like a cute, little future science-y playpen.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I mean... what a sham.
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

A Colony For Ants Pt. 2[edit]

After completing A Colony For Ants Pt. 1:
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
We need to “sexy” up this hab model. The modern, fatso astronaut just isn't impressed by yesterday's design compromises.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
We should emphasize our Mars mission's greatest strength -- partnership with some of America's most exciting brands!
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
We're talking Mega-Charge Batteries, Draft-Pigs-dot-com, even Fig Glutens! How's THAT for sexy?
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
We'll sell ad space in the hab, then use the money to add all kinds of ludicrous, over-the-top luxury features.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I love it. I am SLIGHTLY worried that making this colony a complete fiction will lessen its ability to accurately depict life on Mars.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
It's a fine line, but I'm confident we can walk it.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
I am, too. I just wanted to hear you say it. Okay, let's start digging a hole for the Olympic-sized swimming pool.
Task: Upgrade the Mars Colony [x4]
Mars Colony Level 2 Upgrade.pngMars Colony Level 3 Upgrade.pngMars Colony Level 4 Upgrade.png
Task: Make Homer Mock But Secretly Love Mars [x2] (3h, Mars Colony)
On Homer job end:
System Message Keep signing corporate sponsors and watch the Mars Colony blossom into a fully commercialized “educational” exhibit!
Mars Colony Upgrade Message.png
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

10 Leagues Under Squidport[edit]

After buying Yellow Submersible:
Tapped Out Sea Captain Icon.png Arr, a yellow submersible. An old first-mate and I used to sing our love of submersibles which be yellow.
Tapped Out Sea Captain Icon.png Then one day, he gathered up our lyrics and chord changes and dashed off to Liverpool, England.
Tapped Out Sea Captain Icon.png I wonder whatever became of him and those music publishing rights.
Task: Reach Level 15 and Build Squidport
Task: Make Old Sea Captain Reminisce (30m, Squidport Entrance)
Task: Send Yellow Submersible Down Under (24h)
Tapped Out Sea Captain Icon.png The yellow submersible found something, it did! Let's see what we got!
Tapped Out Sea Captain Icon.png I didn't think anything was down there except the bodies of the many, many men I've killed.
System Message You technically found it, so finders keepers! Keep sending the Yellow Submersible on missions and see what it finds!
Yellow Submersible Message.png
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10
The submersible 24 hours job to Dive for Booty has a chance to find a Squidport or Ornate Pier tile, even if you can’t build anymore!
The maximum Boardwalk tiles that can be in inventory is 400 or the inventory will glitch them so you can't place them. Pier tiles has no limit.

Is There Life On Mars?[edit]

After completing Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 3 and tapping on Number 51's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Kent Brockman Icon.png As the Directors of Exploration, Incorporated's Mars Colony, can you comment on the possibility of life on Mars?
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
Kent, we don't expect to find any life on the Red Planet.
Tapped Out Number 51 Icon.png Phew. My ancient race has escaped detection by Earthlings once more.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
If there IS any life on Mars, it is no doubt far too small and stupid to pose a threat, however feeble, to mankind.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
We would probably just walk up to this weakling Martian race and point off into the distance, like we saw something interesting there.
Tapped Out Barry Icon.png
Then, when the gullible Martian stupidly turns to look where we are pointing, we'll knock it cold with a single punch.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
All our simulations of first contact with any Martian intelligence confirm this is exactly how it will go down.
Tapped Out Paul Icon.png
They're idiots, Kent. And we're taking their planet from them, and there's nothing they can do about it.
Tapped Out Number 51 Icon.png Okay, well now it's personal.
Task: Make Number 51 Try to Prove His Existence (6h, Exploration Inc.)
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10
