Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Did everyone have a nice weekend?  Everyone enjoy the holidays?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to sing Fa ra ra ra ra…nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Christmas Phase 2 hit our games on Christmas Eve…what do you think of the new update?  Gil was in town for a couple of days…with a donut deal FINALLY…did you take advantage of his offer?  Christmas was last week, did Santa bring you everything you wanted?  New Years Eve is this week…what do you have planned?  Sunday Night Football tonight features the Bengals vs. the Steelers.  Who are you rooting for?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun, Gil, NFL, Christmas, or anything else you can think of!  We can’t wait to chat with you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

12/23: New Christmas Quests

UPDATE BUNNY: EA is pushing out patches. Let us know if this helps with this task being stuck. If not, hang in there for the next one. 

UPDATE BUNNY: For all those getting stuck on the “done” issue again, there are a few things you can try if you really want to go that route. 

1: Go to Krustyland/Neighbor and back to your Springfield.

2: Uninstall/Reinstall the app if you have your game linked to an Origin ID. 

However, so far the majority of players that have tried this have not had good results. For now, the best thing to do is Contact EA and light up the Forums. 



Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re nearing the end of Part 1 of Christmas….so you’ve got a little under 24hrs to gather those last minute presents and earn as many prizes as you can before Phase 1 leaves town.  (You also may want to finish your tunnel tasks up…)

As was mentioned in the initial Jingle Bell Wreck questline….we were all left with a cliff hanger to see if Springfield really did ruin Christmas or if it would be saved.  And today, that questline has picked right back up!  So let’s take a look at the remaining parts of Jingle Bell Wreck, and see if Christmas will be saved!

11/28 Thanksgiving-a-Roony!- Gil’s Back!

You ALL should get the Update now to correct the issue of the Leftovers. Not sure if all will see the *(null) one fixed just yet. But the Update will auto hit your games. ;) (Remember if you see Bart, it may because EVERYONE is trying to get the update, so be patient)

UPDATE BUNNY: Looks like many of you are running into another issue. (It is odd as it did not impact any of my games.) Yesterday’s task ended with coming back today for Leftovers. Part of the Leftovers dialog today and task is to again have Lisa and Ned Have a Peace Feast, but the option is locked up. I am currently testing a few things and will report back. 

I am in process of trying to contact EA, and also started a forum thread on EA. Please feel free to add to it and open a ticket with EA on the issue. Will update once I hear more back. (I am also looking into the **null** self punishment issue)


UPDATE BUNNY 10:30 AM EST: After a very very long conversation with some reps poking round in my game, they still are unable to isolate issue. So…off to a patch they go. They are looking into the entire “Leftover” questline that should have triggered properly as well as Ned’s task turning *(null). Hopefully they can get a patch out soon. In the meantime, keep flooding the forums with your info so it keeps it on top. 

UPDATE BUNNY 2:00PM EST: It seems they almost have issue isolated and hope a patch will be out soon for all these issues. No ETA as of yet on it, just once they got it all in order it will hit our games. So hang in there. This one is wide spread. 


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers and Happy Black Friday!

Looks like they’re celebrating Black Friday in Springfield too as Ol’ Gil is in town!  BUT he’s not offering discounted donuts…instead he’s offering donuts rebates!

2014-11-28 09.26.00

So here’s the deal…every hr on the hr Gil is offering premium items with a rebate.  You’ll still have to pay full price for them..but then he’ll give you some donuts back if you do.  The kicker is….Each item is ONLY offered for 1hr.  If you miss that hour…you miss out on the item.

So if you’ve been waiting for something, now’s a great chance to get it.  Here’s a list of what will be offered each hour…and what the rebate back is.  (sorry I missed the first hour…that pesky Turkey made me sleepy!) Continue reading
