infinite Loop Bug

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So I’ve left work and I’m driving to pick up the Tiny Addict (don’t worry i pulled over)  and I’m seeing a ton of comments from you guys about a new update and an infinite loop bug that’s happening with the dialogue.  It’s impacting the ability to play TSTO. (Pretty much everyone is impacted by it)

I’ll dig into this when i get home, but for now use this post to report issues or anything you’ve heard about it.  Just to keep everything together on one place.

I’ll add more when i can…

County Fair 2017 Prize Breakdown: County Fair Entrance and the World’s Biggest Ribbon

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest!  Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowly bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Pride and Pageantry questline you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

Let’s take a look at the details of the third prize, County Fair decorations (Entrance sign and the World’s Biggest Ribbon).  Let’s see what they do and how you unlock them…

Should I Spend Donuts on Turn Your Head and Coif?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest!  Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowly bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!  But of course a new event, no matter how small, means our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Turn Your Head and Coif to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hair salon to your town…

Where Did That Come From- County Fair Edition – Apocalypse Cow with Mary Spuckler

OK… so after talking with Alissa, it seems my first attempt at the WDTCF for this mini-event fell short.  Her words were, to this effect…”we need to show more pics from the actual episode…people like that…and if you don’t, they will scream.”

I’m not sure how many of you will actually scream…but, I’m not willing to take the chance.  Besides…I LOVE this episode.  It is absolutely loaded with great gags, and is the first time Bart meets Mary Wrestlemania Spuckler, who continues to be in his life for several more episodes.  Voiced by Zoey Deschanel, who is just cute beyond words in real life, Mary is the only really smart Spuckler (as we’ll see), and has a huge part in saving Bart’s cow (that’s right…Bart actually “has a cow”) in this episode.

Let’s take a look at the details…and figure out WHERE Mary Spuckler, The Chedderbarrel Farm and Chedderbarrel Combine (and maybe the County Fair sign) come from…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Cheddarbarrel Combine?

Where Did THAT Come From – New Bedlam Rest Home & Leon Kompowsky

Safi here, giving Wookiee a hand with these WDTCF. With WDTCF being a staple of TSTO Addicts, I’ll try to keep as true to the format as possible (by which I mean I’ll copy and paste one of Wookiee’s posts and just change the necessary info). Hope I make the Wookster proud. Enjoy:

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

It’s “Insane in the membrane, Insane in the brain!” time here in all of our tiny tappable towns and this sane (my mother had me tested) Super Safi could not be more thrilled.

It’s time for one of my favorite parts of being a reader here at this amazing site. That’s right… new stuff for us to talk about just WHERE it all comes from in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. The 2017 Homerpalooza Event started with a bang (literally with a free cannon) and then went full Rock, and then Pop. And when you think of Pop, you have to think of the King of Pop, none other than the late great Michael Jackson. It’s my privilege to get to writing about the origins for The Simpsons version of MJ on behalf of Wookiee. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. For this round of origins, we’ll be taking a look at Leon Kompowsky, aka Michael Jackson, and the New Bedlam Rest Home:

Where Did That Come From – County Fair Edition – Part I – Lisa The Beauty Queen


When Alissa asked me to write some of the “Where Did That Come From?” posts for this County Fair Mini-Event, I agreed to help, even though my favorite reply is always, “The SIMPSONS! All of this stuff is from THE SIMPSONS!!”

But then, Alissa, in her wisdom (and not willing to let me off of the hook that easily) pointed out that many of the TSTO Addicts Community actually likes to be reminded of where this stuff comes from…with a few more specifics.   So, after doing a bit of research, it occurred to me that almost all of the prizes/premium items and clutter that is being offered to us in this update is actually from just Four Episodes.

So, to make things easier to find if you are going back and looking for old episodes, I’m going to do the WDTCF posts by Episode, rather than the individual item.

PART I –  Little Miss Springfield Lisa, The Paralyzer, Turn Your Head and Coif, Ye Old Off-Ramp Inn and Amber Dempsey all come from one Episode…

Addicts Open Thread

NOTE: Right now there’s a fairly widespread issue going on with players being logged out of their TSTO game because their password was reset. If this has happened to you hit the forgot password option on the TSTO login screen and follow the instructions.

This is widespread, but it’s not impacting everyone. (But it’s impacting other EA games as well) Trying to get more info on what happened, I’ll update here if i find more info.

Thanks!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

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 Open Thread…..

From Musicfest to the County Fair!  Our pocket-sized Springfields have ushered fall, as we get ready for Halloween with a good old County Fair!  What are your thoughts on the County Fair Mini event?  How are you progressing with the prize track? Thoughts on the premium items?  Have you purchased any so far?

 

In case you missed it, yesterday we posted a bonus episode of Addicts Live, our annual blogiverary Q&A!  Have you checked it out?  Lots of laughs and a brand new intro, with music from our very own Patric! So if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to give it  a watch when you have some time.

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!
