Weekend Update- April 13th – 19th

Hey there Hoppereenos…I know you are all super busy tappin and zappin away in your lil towns…so let’s jump right in to it, shall we…

Weekend Update Addicts

SATURDAY: After last weeks update, Bunny put outΒ the Springfield Showoff with the Seven Duffs and Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck.


A QUICK NOTE: Someone asked as to why they may see one of the Addicts Team Members a lot over another. Well to put it simply, just because one of our names are not on a post or in the comment threads does not mean we aren’t here. We have a REALLY AWESOME TEAM. We work TOGETHER well. So while one writes, another pulls pics, or while one is commenting another is in the files gathering data. On and on and on. (We do occasionally take breaks too. Lol.) We work as a pretty well organized oiled machine. Wouldn’t have it any other way. So no worries on the lack of a name here or there…we are always around here somewhere…helping to makes this one of the best TSTO sites out there for the BEST READERS EVER!!! We do this all for YOU! And enjoy every last bit of it. πŸ™‚


Now for this weeks fun…

SUNDAY:Β  Alissa started off the week with some great info on a Jailbird with some really “bitchin'” hair in this weeks Mad Men of Springfield: Snake. She then came back to open the night up for discussion in this weeks Open Thread.


MONDAY: Bunny snuck in bright and early to give you a recap of the New Simpsons Episode: Days of Future Future for her point of view. She then later came back to give our iOS users on the other side of the pond a heads up on price changes that will impact their TSTO games and donut costs.

Alissa then wanted to give YOU a chance to make everyone giggle in this weeks Caption This. She then gave you all the last minute warning bell that time was about to expire on your chance to get Maude and the Cremo Bot. Did you?

Wookiee wanted to know just what YOU like to tap in his Randomness post: I’d Tap That.


TUESDAY: Alissa revamped out Friends Who WON’T Vandalize page. That means NO SPRAY CANS PEOPLE. Pretty Please.

Want to know what a Wookiee sounds like? Listen in to him being interviewed by our UK friend Adi Pose.

A new cool event means you need new neighboreenos. Alissa created a page…which you then filled up in only TWO DAYS. Lol. So I will not link that one here. Instead…GO HERE. She then got out the EASTER EVENT UPDATE information as quick as we could pull it, compile it, and verify it before sending it on to you. SO MUCH INFO. With every new questline comes hidden “Easter Eggs”, so once the info was found she put out that you CAN win 15 FREE DONUTS just for playing as you would have anyway. We do not want you wasting FREE or purchased donuts, so she put out the guide of what NOT to spend donuts on just yet in the update.

Bunny was finally set free and bounced on in to tell you some of the cool new changes to the game that she saw happening.


WEDNESDAY: After catching a couple Zzzzs and our breaths, Alissa jumped back in to explain a cool new way that EA has come up with to give each player a different experience. Pink or Blue? She then gave you the short short short version of all the main quests with Turbo Tappin’ Easter Style. With so much information going on, she provided a QUICK USER GUIDE TO EASTER to help you with some of the main questions. For those that want to swap eggs via the Easter Baskets, we got a page for that too.

Bunny then hopped back in to bring all the details we compiled on just exactly what those Easter Baskets do for us in our game.


THURSDAY: After days of adding and testing and compiling it all, Alissa put out a VERY cool and VERY detailed breakdown of just how to acquire eggs and prizes in the game. The MATH of it all. She then gave you a GREAT TIP to earn bunnies super fast at Cletus’ Farm using Witch Marge.

There is ALWAYS a cool quick way to find out how to earn money in the game. Bunny bounced in to let you know just how to use the Corn to get a cool payoff and that FREE DONUTS can still be found in your neighbors after maxing out your FPs. PLANT CORN NOW BEFORE PART 8 IN THE QUEST!!! She then came back to give you the break down on what you will see in the 3 Easter Boxes and your chance at the prizes.


FRIDAY: Alissa jumped in with the 2nd Edition of the Add Friends Page is made. Boy you guys fill em up fast. Keep it up! We love to see all these new players. πŸ™‚ She then wanted to break down some of the cool information for the New Easter Buildings. For the first time in forever, she gave us all a lil piece of her mind in a BRILLIANT post about why she Defends the Easter Bunny. She then popped back in to make us all aware of the first big known glitch for this event. Missing Basket Eggs.

Wookiee roamed on in covered in cheetos powder and a killer hat to tell us about the origin of Johnny Fiestas and where it came from in Simpsons TV.

Bunny bounced on by to give you a few hints on how to ZAP them bunnies with the Bunny Stunner.

    This thread is what came up under “Technical Support”…so…I went back to EA a third time…they’ve issued me another ticket, the new number is 250,000 tickets later!!!

    • You should be able to re-open the original ticket. That’s what I always did.

      • freaknstein8

        I put the first ticket # in my message to them…y’all keep holding my comments making me think I’m in trouble…I never meant any of you any grief, Wookiee…this event is tough without baskets or any reassurance from EA….I’m only getting one box a day…just want the lego store…I’m sick as hell now…will see you guys another day…I hope πŸ™‚

  2. Please help: Hey fellow addicts. I am fairly new to the game. I’ve followed and appreciated the guides here. I finally managed to hit lvl 21 two days ago and for the life of me I can’t get the Muntz house unlocked. Spent my in game money to build Squid Port, hoping it would unlock the house. No such luck. Still haven’t bought the Krusty Land bus. Don’t think earlier jobs are holding up my access after opening Squid Port with house still locked. Anybody have a work around?

    • What was the last quest you completed or the one you’re currently doing? Your XP level and questlines don’t always match up (i.e. XP at Level 21 but still doing Level 19 tasks).

      • At the time, Homer was swearing at the sea. I’m pretty sure from what I’ve read in other threads here that I have to finish the lower lvl missions before the house will unlock. Is that correct?

    • Hey Alissa, thank you so much for the quick reply and all the great work you do. The team of addicts are great!!! Happy tapping.

  3. My baskets disappeared from storage and the bunnies are not given me any in days. No fabriege eggs either. Tons of beach towels/umbrellas and cottoncandy trees. Will I get the big prizes? Need to get some encouragement.

  4. So what’s up with the baskets not giving you your eggs.? I have an old account and to get some extra eggs I swapped some with my account I am currently using. It’s been 3 days and I still haven’t gotten them. what the Glitch??

  5. I was tappin and zappin my bunnies and as usual a Easter basket pops out. I go to my stoage to place, I click on it, I place it in my spot I want and it came full of eggs! So I tapped on my basket and got 500 eggs just for zappin bunnies!

  6. OOH, OOH, I almost forgot, anyone who hasn’t followed the turbo tappin thread, I highly recommend it, it’s made this event a piece of cake πŸ™‚

    You 3 are the BOMB!

    I will say goodnight for the evening, I’ve got neighboreenos to visit, and these muscle relaxers and pain meds are starting to kick in LOL!

  7. I just wish one of the gifts in the boxes was a straight 12 hours of sleep, (or even 6) πŸ˜‰

  8. Either I’m lucky patient or simply follow the good advice of the addicts team but I rarely get problems.

    Feel sorry for the guys who do.

    I love the Easter fences would like to get all 50 as I am building an apartment block with them.

  9. Happy Easter everybody!!! πŸ™‚

    • This Easter falls on a special day! Happy days, freak!

      • I know, I mentioned it in my town… πŸ˜‰

      • Stopping in to check it out, right meow!

      • Can you tell what I replaced the bunny reservation with??? Gladly, I still have plenty of room for my bunnies!!! Still waiting to be able to grow carrots…you speed players suck… πŸ˜‰ …but you do give us normal to slow players something to aim for as we try to catch up… πŸ™‚

    • I’m moseying along slowly with you too, Freak. Yesterday I was so excited to open more than one box a day and I see people have opened 14 or more already! Wow! But I’m still having fun. I’m getting carrots today. In 6 hours I will have mas bunnies. πŸ™‚

      • I feel for the poor players that have a basket with one or two eggs in it but yet it never gets filled…for that reason I gave another the next day…I don’t remember who I swapped with and hope I dropped you some!!! πŸ™‚

      • Oh it seems everyone is growing carrots but me…I’ve been waiting to advance in the game…am stuck…lol…tried to find the walk-through…so many blogs for this event…our heros have worked so hard already…need sleep anyway, did you know that Sunrise services for Easter are at sunrise???… πŸ™‚

      • Where???…oh sweetie go back to your kids and relax, thankyousomuchforhelpingalltheothertimes!!! πŸ™‚

  10. Dang…I missed the party… πŸ™

  11. Loving this update so far! I’m taking my time, trusting Alissa’s numbers and being optimistic about getting all the prizes. Today was the first day I opened a gold box and I got the banana dictatorship on the first spin! Woo hoo! Every day I’m getting more and more eggs without spending money, I even got my first neighbor donut today!!! Alissa, I hope you have been having better luck with that too. Thanks to the Addicts Team for being the insane file frackin, number crunchin, picture pulling, post writing, working around the clock AWESOME TEAM that you are! Up with fun, down with ungrateful bran muffins. I know a whole bunch of people who could take those extra donuts off your hands. I said I wasn’t going to comment on that but I just got carried away!

    • HEHEHEHEH its OK. We are passionate too. Just try to not let it darken our fun here. I LOVE this update. The overall point is you have to work for the prizes. They wont drop in your lap, but they also arent that hard to get. Blue and pink…I had all by 25 boxes NOT 80+. Gold…banana in 1, father sean by 4, and the bunny 24601 by 6…or 8? I would have to check…I just know it was RIGHT away. No 80+. So it is possible. It all comes down to chance or EA failsafe.

      • You guys are the best! You know what I just noticed, maybe I just missed this before, but the stuff in my inventory is in abc order! Except for festive lamp post, which is after the regular lamp post. Yay, I’m really excited because that was so annoying. Lol

        • Lol. It is cool, but yes…some of them are odd places, like their actual name doesnt match their coded name. Still cool πŸ˜‰

  12. before i go any further, i know there is plenty of time. Saying that, i am so jonesing to buy 5700 eggs!!! We or should i say I need the Anonomous class!! OMG my thumb has a serious Addiction!

  13. Forgot to ask! I’m a sucker for those decorations they give away during events that gives out % xp and cash bonus, which other decorations “free ” ones from prize boxes have them aside from kudos and kang topiarys?

  14. No new Simpsons episode this weekend…unfortunate. We do get a Married to the Blob rerun, though.

    Next weekend we have What to Expect When Bart’s Expecting, followed by the Brick Like Me LEGO episode (which I’m really looking forward to…provided I get the Blocko store first), and then the unannounced season finale. Either Simpsorama (the Futurama crossover) or The Man Who Came to be Dinner (Kang/Kodos episode).

  15. Day four and already opened 14 boxes!!! Keeping optimistic that “I WILL” get every single one of those prizes lol! btw zapping a herd of rabbits after harvesting the carrots is hilarious!!!!!! All of them trying to run away and little do they know it only takes one Zap!!

    • I laugh…they all just POP out and ZAPPP!!! You got 10 in one shot. It is pretty fun. (is that bad of me to say? Lol) πŸ˜‰

      Plenty of weeks still left in this event. Have fun! πŸ˜‰

    • 14 boxes! Sweet stuff.

      I myself have opened 11 boxes now: 10 pink and 1 blue.

      I have 5 sets of three pcs white Easter fence (4 from pink and the 5th from my lone blue box), 4 sets of 100 golden eggs, and 2 beach towel with umbrella pieces. Here’s hoping for some cool stuff soon.

  16. Sorry I’m not sure where to post this but I’m VERY frusterated because ever since the new Easter update I can’t visit my neighbors!!! I click on the friends icon milhouse & Bart to go visit my neighbors & it just takes me back to my home screen & the game completely stops! I love this game & play it every chance I get but its really making me mad πŸ™ Anybody else having this problem since the new update? Anybody know how to fix it? Thx for listening πŸ™‚

    • I did address this with EA the other night. They said they are starting to see more and more reports. Problem is…the cause is so varied. My best suggestion is if all the standard troubleshooting does not resolve it, please contact them and open a help ticket so they can work on the issue with YOUR device. Let us know how it goes.

  17. seems to me those ponds and egg piles are numerous but still odds are in our favor πŸ™‚

  18. Are you going to explain chocolate bunnies in krustyland? Beacause I am confused.

  19. So bummed out..Most my stuff went missing today..Don’t have character’s to do my tasks, towns in shambles… I’m missing out and ea doesn’t know what’s going on… Hope they figure this out soon…

    • OH NO!!! I hope they get you all squared away soon too and give you compensation for the time lost. πŸ™

      Let us know how it goes.

    • Is ea pretty good about this? I’ve been playing over a year now.. Finally making money…Thankfully I have never bought donuts…I found this site seeing if anyone else was having this problem…Unfortunately I have so much missing I don’t know if I covered it all with them…

      • In the past, a few have lost a lot from unauthorized access to their accounts. EA did all they could to put back the decorations and buildings they had. They also tried to compensate the player with in game cash and donuts equivalent to what it would take to get that player back where they needed to be. I am so sorry this happened. Just make sure they do fully compensate you. If you feel it is not enough, just tell them. They have been great to the Addicts team to put things right (Just ask Wookiee).

  20. I need more bunnies!! I haven’t reached part 8 yet.

  21. Should I buy the fireworks, candy and puppies house ? Or should I hold off bc it will be gifted later..thanks musclepug930

  22. LOVE THIS GAME. I think I’ll start watching the Simpsons . My son watches it all the time. When I show him my town, he gets really impressed. I asked him how do you know who those characters are. He just laughed and said you need to start watching the Simpsons.

  23. WOW, my Krustyland is overrun with the chocolate bunnies. I asked them to just hop on the bus and travel to Springfield with me, no takers! They are cute and tap them and they make sounds.

  24. Wow…been some week!!! While I’m deliberately chugging along slowly with this event, I am enjoying it…love the sounds and humming birds…and bunnies…I got that weird flying bunny…lol, got the Banana Dictatorship, bunch a fences…love what my neighbors are doing with their stuff…have noticed how giving eggs also helps me towards my next SPIN…LOL…after my “accident”, I mentioned I was giving away eggs and by midnight I had over 25 friend requests…lol…sorry guys…I recognized one name from here but after making room, EA wouldn’t let that person in my list… sorry guys!!!

  25. You guys are doing a phenomenonal job enhancing the Easter event! Thx!!!
