The Simpsons Tapped Out (4.3.0) Squidport update FAQ



The Simpsons Tapped Out was recently updated to version 4.3.0 which introduced the Squidport waterfront expansion. The update is available for iOS and Android and brings several new features and enhancements. Unlike previous holiday themed updates, this update seems to be a permanent enhancement to the game.

We decided to put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help gamers face any issues they may come across when playing the game

Q1) I have completed the Squidport Quest 5 to build the Itchy and Scratchy Store. However the game is not completing and letting me move on to Quest 6. What Should I do ?
This is a known issue. Storing the Itchy and Scratchy Store and placing it back on the boardwalk completes the issue and allows you to progress.


Q2) How do I get more Boardwalk sections?
When you build the Squidport Entrance, you will receive 4 boardwalk tiles. Getting more tiles isn't so easy. To make more boardwalk tiles, tap on the Squidport Entrance.

The first piece will be offered for free and will take 1 hour to make. Once it is completed you can click on the Entrance and it will be added you to your inventory.

The second piece will cost you $450 and will take 2 hours to complete and every new piece will require more time and more money


Q3) Should I tap on my friends' Squidport Entrance when I visit their towns?
It is not recommend that you do this. Some users are reporting that Boardwalk sections that they are building are being replaced with the handshake and XP. It seems to be working as it should for others but it is recommended that you avoid clicking your friends' Squidport Entrances for now.


Q4) What are the other enhancements offered with the 4.3.0 update?

  • The Other Springfield has been updated to level 30. However the Squidport has not been built even though the beach is visible.
  • Fences and certain decorations can now be turned in all four directions.
  • The odds, outlays, rewards and race timings have changed at Springfield Downs 
  • The regular lamp posts are no longer available for purchase. (check out how to get them)
