Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Everyone have a nice weekend?  Enjoy your holiday weekend?  Get any early Christmas shopping started?  Get your decorations up?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time for Turkey Sandwiches…that’s tomorrow!  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.  No new Simpsons tonight, but they’re replaying the Season Premiere (Clown in the Dumps) in case you missed it.  Thanksgiving is about to end in Springfield….did you get everything you wanted to?  When do you think Christmas will arrive?  Sunday Night Football features Broncos vs the Chiefs.  Who are you rooting for?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update speculation,  NFL 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!

Where Did THAT Come From – Puritan Flanders & Outdoor Feast Table

Turkey turkey turkey gobble gobble gobble turkey gobble turkey gobble gobble…

Mmmmmmm…. turkey.  Hey hey my friends!  Wookiee balancing a laptop on the remainders of his Turkey feast stomach and wondering why anyone would pardon Mac, Cheese or a Tofurkey?  Tryptophan be darned, I love me some food. But this post isn’t about delicious turkey deep-fried and delicious, it’s about Puritan Flanders and the Open Feast Table.

Where Did THAT Come From – Thanksgiving Reboot

Oh goodness am I full.  Not complaining but going to three different Thanksgiving is definitely upgrading my pants size.  How are all you Puritan whippers and Black Friday dealers doing? Getting all the goodies you desire? Liking all the new stuff in the game? Wondering where they came from?

Well outside the fact that some hopped in from the previous Thanksgiving, we did some background on them once upon a time and just wanted to refresh that info for you now. So here is the WDTCF: Thanksgiving Reboot Edition.

Keep in mind many of these were written over a year ago. We may or may not have been a lil crazier then. Lol. Enjoy. Continue reading

Where Did THAT Come From – House of Evil & Krusty Doll

Hey hey hey friendereenos!

So I’m sure you noticed I’ve been gone for a while. Suffice to say studying 3 history classes and anthropology with the added duties of surviving the zambie apocalypse kept this walking carpet pretty dang busy during all the Halloween festivities. As penance, I told the lady Addicts as soon as I was back that I’d knock out a few Where Did THAT Come From posts from the Halloween event. As a bonus, I was playing it just the same as all of you and boy howdy was it a doozy. Overall fun but I’m veering from my duties. With no more digression, here’s a Halloween origin for you. This post focuses on the House of Evil and Krusty Doll.

Where Did THAT Come From – Drive-In Theater & Space Mutant

Hey there Home Skillets! How’s life in your neck of the woods. All is well in Kashyyyk but I thought it was time to bring you some more origin info from Halloween 2014. This round is all about one of the premium items you may have bought during the event… the Drive-In Theater. This building cost 150 donuts and came with the Space Mutant character. Based on the movie you play at the theater, you earn various amounts of cash and XP.

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)

http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/Leftovers-task-for-Lisa-and-Ned-Glitched/m-p/4057759#U4057759

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

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

Woohoo, it’s finally Turkey Day here in the US! And you know what that means? Turkey, mashed potatoes, apple pie, pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find all the latest on the Thanksgiving Update here), as the Addicts staff celebrates the holiday with their families but don’t worry we’ll be back at it tomorrow!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go with out a special THANK YOU to all of our AMAZING readers! We are so thankful for each and every one of you taking the time to read our posts and comment! So from Wookiee, Bunny, and myself THANK YOU!!!

Now for a little extra fun. In my family, and many families, we have a tradition on Thanksgiving, we go around the table and each take a turn saying what we’re most thankful for over the past year. So, I thought it would be fun if my Addicts family each took a turn and shared with you, our AMAZING readers, what we’re most thankful for this year! So with that being said…. Continue reading

11/27 Thanksgiving-a-Roony!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Phase 5 of Turkey Day is now active…as you may have seen when you finished the first part of the Thanksgiving Questline this pops up:

2014-11-24 02.58.48

And well…today is Thursday November 27th…so what’s in store today?

Bart gets things started today with some dialogue with Homer…

Then you’ll continue the Black Friday questline, Gear up for Savings..with a 6hr task for Homer.

But don’t send him on it right away…..because Homer gets things started for the second questline that’ll popup!

This will continue The Thanksgiving Meal questline.  You’ll have to send Simpsons and Flanders to eat a Thanksgiving Dinner together x10.  This is a 30m task.  Here’s who you can send:
Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, Flanders, Maude, Rod, Todd, Grampa, Patty, Selma, Mrs. Bouvier, and Hugo.

And that’s it for today!  But you’re reminded to check back tomorrow….

2014-11-27 08.10.25

Remember…there’s 1 task released each day.  Some task award a “reward-a-roony” while others are just tasks.  So far no prizes have been awarded, but stay tuned tomorrow to see what’s in store for us then!  

What do YOU think of the slow Thanksgiving roll-out?  Thoughts on the short task for today?  Did it trigger for you or were you still finishing the first part?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
