Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  How was your weekend?  Do anything fun?  Anyone else having AWESOME weather this weekend?  (A pleasant change from all that cold and snow here on the east coast!)

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to pick the cheetos out of Wookie’s fur (although we probably should get to that soon!) Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!  (this is very quickly becoming our favorite time of the week by the way!  You guys have some AWESOME things to say!)

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.  The Simpsons are all new tonight AND we had an episode tie-in update hit our games, what will happen in the new episode?  How will the tie-in items come into play?  Will there be a reason for all of Homer’s graves?  Watch them along with us and find out!  We had rumors of a little Easter update that might be hopping into our games this week! (see what I did there 😉 )  What do YOU think it might contain?  Do you think we’ll be able to contain Bunny’s excitement over the update?   The Yankees and RedSox are ESPN’s  Sunday Night game of the week…will you be checking it out?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update speculation,  MLB or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Joyce Homer Bunny

  1. Wookiee, thanks for your reply…I couldn’t find a way to get back in line so…dude you seem to be a really great guy and father…kids don’t always come with precise instuction manuals…neither do women…I learned my lesson the first time…my god man…no ex#2 over here…:)
    Thank you!!!

  2. Tapper for life

    I started watching Breaking Bad on Friday! Really great show I’m on the 4th episode. Anyone else seen it?

  3. C’mon Easter update. I’d love to have new flowers for landscaping! Any new decorations to liven up the town.

    • Hoping for yellow flowers…and any other single color flowers…we’ll see, huh… 🙂

      • Single colors would be great. I’m sure we would see some really awesome designs from fellow Tappers. I wish the cool brown house would make another appearance too. I’ve only been a tapper since January 2014 and would really like to have it in my Springfield.

  4. I want a Terminator Homer!!! Dang it…now please!!! 🙂

  5. Does anyone else wish that both buildings and decorations could move on a 270 degree rotation? It’s REALLY annoying that they can’t (Grrrrrr!)

    • Yup it’s a very common complaint 🙂

    • I’d settle for a 180…there’s no frikkn degree symbol…we’re only getting 45 and 90 degree pivots as it is…at least close to those numbers…
      I just want what I tap to be what is selected…THAT gets frustrating!!! 🙂

      • FREAK! I was just alerted that you just visited my town…something tells me I need to return to it with a mop and bucket! 😉

      • I swear I didn’t miss the bowl and I lifted the lid first !!! 🙂

      • That drives me crazy! Sometimes it highlights some random decoration that is now where near the item I tapped. With those little teeny flowers and shrubs I sometimes have to tap 10 times before it finally picks the right item.

      • Ugh! Even a stylus isn’t helping my taps select the correct item. I am taking forever to redecorate my town. I’m sick, so I’m going slower anyway. Don’t try to cough and tap.

      • Hope you get better in time for the big Easter egg…thingy…your is looking great imodat!!! I gotta figure out something to do with a couple of dumpsters… 😉

      • …your town… oops… 🙂

      • No coughing and tapping…. good advice 😉 Feel better!

      • omg YES! that’s prob the most frustrating thing to me, and why I don’t often move things around. I was wondering about the stylus, Imodat. I guess that’s my answer, a no!

      • I have to use a stylus cause I can’t see through my finger…does anybody else’s stylus wear out??? When new it “glides” against the screen, but now it’s like high-traction…it grips the screen and leaves a trail…(joke setup right there) 🙂

      • No where, not now where. Changes the meaning slightly……

      • ODL yes, I hate when you tap on something and it chooses another thing, then you tap again… and on & on. I have found it saves time if I know I’m going to be moving the wrong item chosen, (fence, hedge), that if I put it into storage, then use it when I need it.

    • Could at least let me rotate my parking spaces.

  6. I can’t reply to your post with Homers drivers license showing ‘any 12 1953 as his D.O.B.. However, I found where it says Homer was born May 10 1955. Season 2, Episode 2. It’s on Homers insurance form from when he got the minoxidil.

    Speaking of which, how sweet a task would that be, “Homer applies minoxidil”, at the end of the task he has a full set of hair.

    • Yeah… I guess I’m one of the Driver’s License is finite proof kinda guys. I’ve seen March too. Typical Homer not knowing the right month or day. I wish it was the 16th but that’s just my ego lol. I think a minoxidil quest or skin would be amazing and maybe Bart could get his beard too. Maybe for a Movember tie-in?

  7. I want robo homer

  8. In 16 days after Stampy maxing out FP lvl 5, I got 32 donuts and only had 2 days with 0 donuts (day 9 and day 12).

    In 7 days after E.A.R.L. Maxing out FP lvl 6, I got 12 donuts and only had 1 day with 0 donuts (day 5 of 7, or day 21 if you include previous 16).

    But now, I got Capital City Goofball 45 actions into yesterday’s visits and maxed out FP level 7. I had 255 actions yesterday and just now completed my full 300 actions for the day and for the first time ever have gotten back-to-back goose eggs 🙁

    I know Freakenstein managed to get some free donuts yesterday visiting neighbours (in addition to the 3 he got for completing level 39 again). How about the rest of you? Is anybody else getting free donuts post-Goofball? Any of you sharing my Gil luck? Or are you guys like Kent Brockman winning the lottery?

    • Hi Safi

      Like you, I have also noticed a drop in the number of free doughnuts since getting Capital City Goofball. I got one yesterday, but completed nearly 1,000 actions before I got it (boo hoo!)

      I guess with the impending event that’s due, EA want us gamers to buy them, and therefore don’t want to give too many of them away…hmmm…..

      • I dunno about that. For me, since the very first event I have yet to earn a single donut from visiting neighbors after I’ve collected all of the prizes. I think it’s completely random and runs in streaks 🙂

      • Alissa, that makes me feel better, I’m not the only one with no luck finding donuts. This will be the last time I whine about it, promise!

    • Hey Safi…I’m curious how you are pronounced…you shouldn’t complain(look at me saying that, Ha) 🙂 …you be get’n a loud amount of them treats, yo…I think you got about 10 more than me after Stampy…yeah…that troll part in me that Bunny has mentioned, he reads your posts too… 🙂 …I’ve been taking it slow today…didn’t even feel like visiting everyone…in a mood I guess…
      I’M READY FOR SOME EGGS…sorry, didn’t mean to yell in your face!!! 🙂

      • Pronounced Sa-fee.

        True, I’ve scored 44 free donuts visiting neighbour’s since completing FP level 5 on March 12th. Over the same past month, I also got 5 for Side Show You’s 600th visit, 5 for St Patricks Day, 9 for three completions of the level 38 XP bar, 2 for leveling up to level 39, and an additional 3 for completing level 39 XP bar. I’ve gone from 75 donuts on March 12th to 143 by April 12th and have enough to buy my first premium building if I want.

        But to paraphrase Homer: In TSTO, first you get the donuts, then you get the power, then you get the premium women!

        Which is why the back-to-back goose eggs is disappointing.

      • …so, Sah-fee??? …like that?…would like to visit someday…I just know you have an awesomer town and I…
        I quit trying to keep track of how many donuts I got and when knowing that if I cared enough to know, I could find out from my past comments…
        Premium women…LOL…ones that don’t want you to mess up their hair…ones I cannot afford… 🙂 …here or IRL… LOL

        …Reminds me of when I worked for an escort service…hey, a guys gotta eat!!!

      • …so, Sah-fee??? …like that?…would like to visit someday…I just know you have an awesomer town than I…
        I quit trying to keep track of how many donuts I got and when knowing that if I cared enough, I could check my old comments here…but I went at least three days of tapping for ZERO donuts after Stampy…

      • C’mon…lol… I censure the first one and you post it anyway!!! LOL
        SAFI…lol… as you can see, I replied to you earlier but the reply didn’t “go through”…thinking I’d crossed a line, I trimmed out my jokes, hit “post reply” and, BAM!!! You got the edited and UNRATED version…LOL 🙂 …Love you guys!!!(Wookiee,Alissa,AND Bunny) 🙂

    • I did get free donuts from 1 particular neighbor 2 days in a row since maxing out. Thought that was weird.

  9. Since unlock Goofball two nights ago ….. I’ve been on the hunt for donuts ….. Must say I’m a little bummed out ? Ziltch, Nodda, big fat goose egg. Anyone else have any luck??

    • Couple folks on the site have gotten some. Hope your luck turns soon.

    • I’m in the same boat as you Mazda. Was actually writing my post along the same lines (one right above this) while yours was probably awaiting moderation. I keep wishing for something round with a hole in the middle, and instead of donuts, I get 0. 0 is technically not round, it’s oval. Not fair.

      At least I’m not alone in the back-to-back goose eggs club though. But just being in the club is not important. What really matters is my title. I think I’ll make myself… vice president. No, wait! Junior vice president!

      • That Lord Of The Flies episode was another awesome one that is often in my Top Ten episodes list. Forget the kids on the island in the main story, the secondary Homer story was awesome too.

        Homer quotes from that episode in addition to the junior vice-president one above:
        – Gods so in your face. He’s my favourite fictional character.
        – Oh, they have the internet on computers now!
        – Ah, can’t make it in today, Mr. Smithers. I have smallpox. Well, it wasn’t wiped out in my house.
        And let’s not forget Bill Gates smashing the computers at Compuglobalhypermeganet, laughing evilly, saying I didn’t get rich signing checks.

      • I just know there’s gotta be a way to make a huge donut out of…houses???!!!???…well…they’d be pixeley… 🙂

    • I got the goofball this morning, and scored a donut about 10-15 actions later or so. Nothing since then.

  10. Christian Goddard

    I was another tsto fansite and it showed a conversation with a user and an EA rep. that said the Easter update will come on Wednsday I hope it comes tomorrow and not Wednsday!

    • We are all friends with that site but can’t confirm what was said. I certainly hope it’s true. Jebus knows Bunny will be even more excited when it’s an actuality. That same convo mentioned WD was still a possibility. We shall all know for sure soon, right?

      • Christian Goddard

        True true when i saw it was easter and not whacking day i was mad bc my best played last year when whacking was going on i started play during christmas liked that and i was hooked then read that whacking day might still come cant wait (and the new episode was awesome btw love the future type episodes in shows)

    • Sadly…it is impossible to confirm what a “rep” says as actual data. The reps are actually NOT supposed to tell when an event is happening. Big no no.

      I know something BIG is coming. Just keep your eyes peeled. Even if a set date was offered up to us, I still wouldn’t go by it. There are too many possibilities that it still can get moved. Especially if there are any issues with the event. Like if a glitch or bug is noticed when they test it, they will pull the release until it is fixed.

      There is a lot of activity right now in the files. I see a lot of specific files being targeted that I am noticing with specific items, but I do not want to get everyone’s hopes up…so until I see that nice huge chunk of code drop in the server with a set release date and end date…I will wait and watch and keep my paws crossed. 😉

  11. I just read some snippets of tonight’s episode (on a different TSTOpage) and almost sad I missed it. I said almost… I was having a decadent bowl of ramen *AAARRRRLLLGHHH!!!*

    I’m not sure where I can watch this episode online (in Canada), but I needs to! If anyone can relay a legal streaming site, I’d appreciate it.

    P.S. Funny how I didn’t pick up on the meaning of CREMOBOT. I was so fixated on the eating and the fridge raiding and the eating…
    I… I thought it had to do with soft serve ice cream. Man, was I wrong!

  12. There are so many things from tonight’s episode, even last weeks, that id love to see in the game! The developers could do way more episode tie ins or just character/buildings/decorations in general that would be way cool!

    • How awesome would it be to have some of these futuristic places and deco? for example we need a Hard Lad, the club/strip club Bart went to! haha

    • OH gawd yes! Nothing Stu please! Geriatric Duff Man please! All those damn clowns that were with Krusty! SO MUCH STUFF!

  13. don’t know how many of u, if any, are on instagram, but those who are, u should def follow “thesimpsonsig”

  14. Hey…the part about future Bart and his divorce hit home with me…was telling someone how much I missed my daughter just yesterday…and to have a machine to forget, like that Jim Carrey movie…I could really use that…I did like the show…10 graves was plenty…Wookiee, plz tell me you know my movie quote so I can finally take it down…?!? 🙂

    • I know it 🙂

      • I’m sorry, I’ve forgotten your “name” (I’m getting old)…and I don’t wanna guess…tell me? 🙂

    • Sorry, freak… it’s Aliens of course.

    • Freak, if you’d never married her, you might not have your son & daughter, so never regret your past, learn from it 🙂
      Trust me, I’ve been married 3x LOL

      I thought 3rd times a charm, it ended up being 3 strikes & you’re out 😉

      • For us Simpsons fans it’s now four balls and you walk… straight to the electric chair.

      • Hey…it’s not really so bad that I wish any ill towards my ex…anymore…we’re cool now, friends even…SHE’S JUST BATCRAP CRAZY …and my daughter thinks cheating is normal behavior from her…actually, it is…she’s on her third hubby…not that that compares to you Miss Dar!!!
        Two years ago she abandoned my son, taking off with my daughter to be with this guy she met online in California…I could’ve reported her but I didn’t…my daughter called crying, wanting to come home…all I knew was they were near death valley…that was one of the worst feelings I ever had…worse than the cheating…
        Okay…freak still cries…
        *clears throat*
        So I hear there might be an Easter event… 🙂

        • Brother, there’s so many of us who feel your pain. My first ex abandoned my daughter and my two marriages didn’t end well at all. My kids are amazing though so I concentrate on that.

      • I had to swing back by to holla at you, Miss Dar…your KrustyLand is possibly the best I ever saw…really!!! I ain’t no pro or connoisseur at judging these things but…awesooome… 🙂

        • Well thank you! I checked yours out too, I like it, you did a good job on a lot of your placement, which gave me some more ideas 🙂 I spent at least three whole days when my back messed up redoing mine LOL

          Did you see the other posts about my response to you? It’s in the “Simpsons News: Awesomeness in California” thread. Bunny and I had way too much fun Saturday night/Sunday morning, I ended up going to work with about 2 hrs sleep, which isn’t easy for my old bones 😉

        • Ouch, just read about your ex experience. Fortunately none of mine where as bad as yours or Wookiee’s. #1 was too young, #2 was too codependent, and #3 was well… we won’t go into that other than it exceeds the PG’ed-ness of Addicts :-O

      • I have tried to reply to you for an hour…my keyboard kept locking up…finally rebooted…then I have to scroll down this now two day old thread…lol…SLOW DOWN… 🙂
        Yes, I saw the crazy crap y’all did the other night!!! I replied while half awake and Bunny couldn’t post my comment for the usual reason… 😉 …of course she has no time to harass me anymore… 🙁
        Am I gonna be up all night reading your post, girl??? 🙂 Let me try to catch up…LOL

  15. Hey Wookiee? I couldn’t find anything in the WDTCF on the CremoBot? Got anything on it? Does it do anything?

    • The CremoBot debuted in Tonight’s episode, so there’s no WDTCF on it (since it came from tonight’s episode). Bunny will have a full recap on the episode a little later tonight.
      As far as in game, if it does anything…it basically just as minor animation to it. You can check out the should I buy post here to find out more. 🙂

  16. I spent a nice Sunday afternoon watching the four Mona Simpson episodes: Mother Simpson (7), My Mother the Carjacker (15), Mona Leaves-A (19), and How I Wet Your Mother (23). Now I really want her in my game. I’m wondering why the demand for Sideshow Bob is bigger than the demand for Mona, because they’ve both been the focus of some of the best episodes of the show.

    Fingers crossed she’s not premium.

  17. Snakes or Rabbits?

  18. I just unlocked the goofball!

  19. Why did I only get one grave? Homer died a cpl times & I finished all of the tasks w/ Maude, Homer over eating etc., still I only got one grave just today : (
    Don’t see whacking day coming & am so bummed that it hasn’t come

    • I’m hoping we get Easter and then WD. That holiday is May 10th in the Simpsons Universe so there’s time for both if they drop Easter fast.

      • Awesome! For some reason I thought it was in April. Glad it’s May. Really hoping for both. In the app ad above you can see an Easter TSTO, is that a hint, maybe?

      • Double the awesome. Btw I finally had a chance to catch some of the Adipose stream. Very cool…heard you doing the chewbacca noises and got to see a little bit of your awesome KL.

      • If I’m not mistaken, Homer Simpson’s birthday is also May 10th, either in an episode or on my trading cards. I recall this because May 10th is my moms birthday and she can’t stand The Simpsons or the fact that I’ve watched every new episode every Sunday night for the past 19 years (I was not allowed to watch it before that as I was “too young” for such “mature” content) and she hates that my room in her house is a shrine to Wayne Gretzky, The Simpsons and Batman. But to her credit, she hasn’t throw out any of my things even though I don’t live there 🙂

  20. I missed the first ten minutes of the episode because of work, d’oh. Have to watch the whole thing tomorrow on demand. From what I saw, it was pretty good.

  21. FlufferMcNugget

    Anyone excited for the Stanley Cup Playoffs? Go Hawks!

  22. Firstly, (I will probably get lynched after this) up until three weeks ago I had never seen The Simpsons on TV but have been playing for 10 months now! Will I get to experience whacking day? I wanted to ask Bunny & Co which is your least favourite character in tapped out?

    • Bunny and Co? I know who your fave is lol. I’m a fluffy cotton tail fan too so no worries. No worries on not seeing the show. Kinda jealous because there is so much amazingness you get to see for the first time ever. As for least fave… that’s a hard one. In TSTO, not the biggest fan of Shauna. Glad I got her but her risque behavior leaves much to be desired.

      • I don’t like Shauna’s tasks. Lisa needs a “teach Shauna self respect” task someday & no abusing ducks! 🙂

      • You are all my favourites it was a slip as for the last two days she’s been the point of contact for the “game that cannot be named” here! I think you are all great! I don’t like Shauna’s tasks!

        • lol Bunny was just hopping everywhere the last few days! Working double and triple duty…
          That & she tends to get stuck in your head after a little while 😉

    • I would be happy if Ralph became an exchange student and left Springfield.
      Other than the whip, I’m not fond of Smithers’ tasks.

      • Flanders bike with Burns and whip task save him for me. I also appreciate his drunken stumbling and the money fight task with Ebeneezer Burns is great. I have a soft spot for Ralphie but EA could have done a lot more with him.
