Addicts Weekly Open Thread

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Due to YOUR requests….we now have our open thread time so that our friends outside of the US can participate too!  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!

Now…enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  Time for another 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 Open Thread. I’ll get some ideas started…

  • How is your Duct Tape earning coming along?
  • Do/Doing anything fun this weekend?
  • See something really cool in your neighbors town you want to share?
  • Have a cool “dessert” or “snack food” that is popular in just your culture or region you want others to know about? Maybe they’ve tried it.
  • Want to move to another Ward in the Addicts Asylum? Lol. 😉

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, 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!

  1. For the first time today, I saw Shotgun Pete’s Wedding Chapel in 3 neighbors towns. When did it come out?

  2. May have been mentioned elsewhere, although I don’t recall seeing this mentioned, the new Gargoyle statues are animated when tapped!! Accidentally tapped one and it woke up 😀

  3. Hi neighbors. I hope you see this here even though a new thread starts tomorrow. You guys all have fantastic Springfields, don’t change them! One of the side effects of that is that I’m having the worst time visiting you. it’s terribly frustrating as I really do try to visit all of you every day. I’m getting there verrrrrrrrry slowly. Tap tap boot tap tap boot and repeat. It’s taking hours and dedication to visit everyone (and lots of will power not to throw my iPad) I’m sure after the event is over things will clear up. In the meantime please bare with me! And wish me luck!

    Just for information…
    Sebastian Cobb finally took a rest after I got 14228 Bells and Whistles this morning. That is after closing 18 projects and does not include any other B&W accumulation from other methods. No donuts were harmed in the process.

    • Boy! U have been really busy! Now what do u do? Close for the day? Lol. Glad to hear that donuts r safe in ur hands. It is hard to listen to their screams.😩😩

      • Craig(ibuylow2014)

        Started with a full load of junk, metal, plastic and glass. After I complete projects I again make sure everything is full for tomorrow. Then I work on my SH buildings.

        I mostly do all of this while working my butt off trying to visit friends. Sometimes I have to hard boot my iPad 1 two times to get it to go into a friend’s Springfield and sometimes it just freezes when I do. I have had to drop about 10 GOOD friends because I can never get in with my low memory issue. So, to be fair to them, I got out of their way. I have added friends that are at level 20s and 30s and that seems to help. So, I will get them going with my visiting. Missing my old high level friends though.

        For today I got 13869, so it looks like the limit is definitely 14000. Haven’t been reading posts so I bet our Addicts already have put this out.

  5. Being Friday/Saturday not sure many will see this, but I think I noticed a trend, or could be just a coincidence with the bonus track collecting. Left my track open for the time being, and kept adding track pieces to each end of my track growing it as I receive them. Anyway, seemed to be if I had a curved piece at the end of the track, my bonus would be a curved piece. If I had a straight piece at both ends of the track, I got straight pieces. Heard people complaining there was too many curved pieces. Doing this I received more straight pieces than curved. Not sure if it matters, not sure if its coincidence, but seemed to work well for me this round. 12 rounds of bonus track pieces, two were curved, the rest, straight. Probably jinxed myself by posting this now, but meh lol.

    • R u going to have enough track to go around ur town? R u trying to go around ur town? That is good information. I probably won’t need it for myself, because I just barely make the deadline. 😁 I do hope u didn’t jinx yourself.

  6. Probably be multiples of posts on this before I have posted, but thought everyone should know, Mapple store is back in shops, AND Springfield Heights buildings can now be re-stored in inventory!!

  7. Hey, BigPhil and lee3472 – I just had a space open up in my town…send me a friend request and the spot is yours! (Just make sure I know what Origin handle to look for, if it’s different than here.) Unfortunately, I only have one spot right now, but, if you’re second and don’t mind waiting, you’ll get the next available one.

    (Oh, and apologies if you’re already a neighbor and I haven’t put your two handles together in my mind. *blush*)

    I’m loving how much the percentage of neighbors I “know” has gone up in my list…it’s so much more ffunny that way! (Although some of my “stanger neighbors” do have some pretty cool towns…)

    • Oh boy, what a weird world of bits and bytes,
      I sent the neighbour request from my tablet, then all this update stuff happened, now on my tablet it says no requests sent, but on my phone it shows request sent …..maybe it will all catch up with itself


    • On the way Sandra , you’ll see philgadd11929 , thanks .

    • Sandra, keep getting ** unable to add friend ** you can send me a request if you like , got room , philgadd11292 . Thanks and sorry , wifi connection can be patchy at times , but I will keep trying , unless you get to me first .

      • If you don’t mind, can you keep trying? (Sometimes you have to get ask the way out of your game and then try again later.) I have a few folks in my request queue, and I’d have to decline them if I wanted to send a friend request. I’ll make sure you have a space when you finally get through, okay?

      • Oops – hold off…just accepted Lee and I have to find someone to dump to make room for you. I’ll let you know when it’s okay to try again (hopefully by tonight sometime).

      • Oops again… May not be until tomorrow night. Timeslip got bad last night, so I won’t be visiting neighbors until tomorrow. It’s gonna be tough finding someone to boot…I have a, pretty good lot of neighbors right now. But I’ll definitely see what I can do, because I definitely prefer folks that I know from here over “strangers”…

      • Ok Sandra , I’ll try again tomorrow . Thanks .

      • Got you Sandra .Thanks

  8. I just signed on to clear my town and re send my characters on task. My coworker walks up behind me and says “what game is that you are playing? It looks like you are just tapping buildings and people” LMBO ummm….. Lol

  9. Craig(ibuylow2014)

    Just what I need – mechanical ants to eat up what is left of my memory. Can anybody say, “RAID!!”

  10. I found a crashing bug in my game. I have a monorail track on a road. Then I try to place water on that road tile…. Game freezes. I tried it twice. I forget, though, what normally happens when you put water on a road. I don’t know, but I don’t think the answer is “crash”.

  11. I want the Maison Derrière ! …but only if it comes with the employees and their stockings 🙂 👠

  12. Craig(ibuylow2014)

    Just for information:
    On September 1st, I ended up with 25454 rolls of tape. Got six pieces of track.
    That was without being able to visit neighbors.

  13. Craig(ibuylow2014)

    For the first time I just cleaned up garbage somebody dumped on my church. Kind of made me feel like Arlo Guthrie.

  14. Hi Amy, if you could see my little toes on both feet u would run! I’m not a big fan of feet either never understood people with foot fetishes ugh!
    My main complaint right now goes out to EA as I know they are lurking here! I also think there are lots like me that aren’t amused I think it stinks, pun intended that the loyal tappers that rap their fingers away, reach the point in an event that we earn usually free donuts but now rails. As we get to a higher level we should get one more each time we reach that level. Adding a higher number to get more is just mean! Not to mention frustrating!
    Not taking it out on the 3 great people that run this site, just posting here to see if others are frustrated or I’m just being a grump cause in pain!
    Actually if not for this site would have probably left game!

  15. There’s a thread on the EA forums requesting the Screamapillar. How cool would that be! And it could come with the koi pond. I didn’t even know I wanted it until just now. Here’s the video to refresh everyone’s memory.
    “Without constant reassurance, it will die. It’s sexually attracted to fire…are you sure God doesn’t want it to be dead?”

    • Oh yeah I love that episode!!! That was hilarious!!! I wanted that! 🙂 Would it be a NPC though? hahaha and it was in court too!

      • LOL yes with the neck brace! On the other forums they suggested giving him a few tasks, but they’d all be “Scream”, like 1 hr scream, 8 hr scream, etc.

      • I vaguely recall this. I’m on board. Wouldn’t one of the tasks also be “Try to have sex with fire”? That would be awesome!

      • Yes! Another one could be “Get squished by a book”, which is how Homer almost kills him. Come on EA!

  16. Hi, Just wanted to thank my awesome friends and say happy Sept. the 1st. Although EA is keeping us busy, this event is one of my favorites, because it makes it possible for me to visit all my neighbors most every day. Not much time to look around in ur towns, but what I see makes me wish I had more time. Hopefully, we have at least a week before Halloween, so I can catch my breath.

    As always, Alissa, Bunny and Wookie, great job. I really don’t know how u do it. Congrat on 2yrs. Would be lost without that calendar, Bunny.


    Also, do friends for my son, chance6422

    As u can see, I am retired.😃😃😃 Have a good day

  17. I’ve notice a few comments about people not sure how to place their monorail in their towns mostly due to space issue. I stated before that placing the rails in the rivers was a great way to save space and an easy way to place it without redesigning your towns. I thought I would just post mine to give others addicts an example of what they can do.
