Addicts Open Thread

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. No new Simpsons tonight, but we did get a holiday inspired update this past week.  What are your thoughts on St. Easter?

Casino Act 3 started earlier this week, how are you doing on the prize track?  Liking the Act 3 prizes?

How’s your Casino designing coming along?  Having fun with figuring out where to put all these casino inspired items?  Building your own Vegas Strip?  Have you submitted your design to be featured in our next Showoff?

How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?

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. Hi all am re doing my game as i blow my town up again lol. i say again as its not the 1st time hehehe. i am level 59 and i have loads of items as i have been playing for years. i am however a bit ocd with my game i like to have sections. i got a few of my ideas from here. but wondering if anyone can help me with ideas like Halloween section Easter section love section duff section. posh side and so on so on. if anyone could share there ideas with me i would be very great full. XxX

    • Many of the love items can be used in Krustyland. If you have the Tunnel of Love, you could make a “Loveland”. Although many people don’t visit their Krustyland, it is a good place to use some objects or ideas that don’t quite fit in Springfield.

  2. Happy Easter!

    Having a great time with all the public holidays (bank holidays?) recently. Monday (21/03) was a public holiday as it was my mother’s birthday (though some mistakenly call it Human Rights Day 😄) followed by Easter so we’ve had a three day week which will followed by a four day week – nice!

    And at the end of the month it happens again when we have a public holiday to celebrate my father’s birthday (27/04 – also sometimes called Freedom Day) followed by Workers Day (01/05).

    I like this time of year!

  3. Bunny, couldn’t reply right under your comment, but pretty bad if u have to moderate yourself. Lol I’ll pass on the chocolate raisins after your comment, if they are all over floor not good for doggies, not sure good for people hehe!
    It’s so nice to having you back sounding like the Bunny we love, have you been drinking bunny water?🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇

  4. As the week comes to a close, I have to say I am moved by the compassion I see from everyone here. When one person says they’re hurting or worried about something or struggling with a problem, the entire community rushes to give them virtual hugs and support. Sure, there are some debates (I won’t mention the great comma controversy–although as an editor, I *was* on Sandra’s side), but even those are respectful. I find this site to be filled with (and run by) kind, big-hearted people. It’s a welcome respite from the big bad world. 😉 Thank you! <3

    • It is what we always wanted for the site from day one. We love our lil Addicts Community. It’s why we keep it going. 🙂

    • Thank you Patty and welcome to our crazy lil world. We do support each other, it’s been an unusual couple of weeks lots of pep going through weird stuff. We do have a lot of fun, plus get great tips. A lot of us our “neighbor’s” so we get to see each other towns, most of us don’t mind “borrowing ideas”😉.
      Another cool thing is get to hear all about the world out there, not the bad stuff just how other people live in other countries. We talk about tragedy too but in general try to keep it a little on lite side. This is a great place to hang and get to know other people who play the game.
      Our hosts Alissa, Bunny and Wookiee are awesome, very knowledgeable about the game, more than generous with their time, we try to get them to take weekends off, so once in awhile, they just pass comments through and let us run wild, kind of lol, no politics, controversial comments and PG. other than that pretty much everything goes in open threads section. Other section we try to stay on that topic, but open thread is open all week.
      So jump on in and make some friends! Happy Easter!🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐰🐣

  5. Well the football sucks so far tonight. ..

  6. Thanks ellieg40395 and brooders 🙂 I only notice it now and again so I will wait until they fix it.

  7. Happy Saturday everyone ♡

    …according to the news here in the UK I’ve got my own storm on Monday lol!

    • I thought that was it when it was wet & windy earlier, is it supposed to get worse? 🙂

      • Oh yeeeaaah , storm brooders , oops , storm Katy , due Sunday night . Batten down the hatches Lee , it’s gonna be a wild and stormy night on the moor . 🙂

        • 1-2 odds on for our shed roof lifting off 🙂

          • Don’t want in on that bet after my pool cage! Good luck to all my English friends! Better find all those eggs the bunny hides before the storm?
            Speaking of Bunnies does anyone know how they came to lay chocolate eggs? Maybe our resident Princess Bunny knows🤔 Happy Easter one and all!🌷🌷😉🐰🐇🐇🐣🐣

            • You don’t want me to answer that. I would have to moderate myself. Let’s just say when you eat a lot of chocolate covered raisins… 😛

      • Yep…Monday! Hurricane Katie ♡

    • Batten down the hatches Baby and stay safe!
      Was 86 (f) today, a lil windy. Managed to get in pool and clean most of mess from broken screen out, it was disgusted, but still felt nice. We will see how it looks tomorrow, couldn’t even see bottom when I got out , ewwwwww!
      Hope your weather holds for the Easter Bunny!🐇🐇🐇🐇🐣🐣🐣🐣🐰🐰

    • Is it your personal storm or are you sharing? Haven’t watched any news today, so sick of listening to candidates acting like 6 year olds, took a day off, so didn’t hear about storm.
      Really a hurricane type storm? Stay safe! Make sure you update your game and tap your neighbor’s before storm rofl!
      Happy Easter!

    • A storm called “Brooders”? 😉

  8. Hey Sandra, you ok?

    • Better than earlier this week!

      It was hard only having one day off this week….I had so much “personal” stuff to do yesterday that I was up until after 1:00 am doing it (which meant I couldn’t fall asleep until around 2 and didn’t sleep too well the first part of the night).

      But I’ll know better how I’m feeling after I do my work today….if it goes well, it will be a relief. If it doesn’t, I’m kinda screwed. I also have a big meeting first thing Monday that I’m kind of dreading (both having a meeting first thing Monday morning AND having *that* particular meeting).

      So, I’m gonna relax and watch Face the Nation and then get to work…wish me luck! 🙂

      Hope we both have a much better week this week.

      • Hi Sandra,
        I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Monday.
        As for relaxing, how can you relax to face the nation? Our political country is driving me crazy right now. I’m still working my way through what I have on DVR before we switch characters, so on Dr Who binge, only have 1& 1/2 episodes till I’m done with The Doctor!
        I have new internet company coming and new cable company this week, so we will see how that goes, seems like there are always “bugs” to work out, plus getting used to new system. I’m not as concerned about TV, just don’t screw up my wifi. However, wifi is a company we were with before and they were good, I didn’t want to leave them to began with. Change will save us about $150 month. We were in a bundle with a company that suck, they started at $99 now up to $290, no way I can afford that ridiculous amount when nothing has changed but their price, not to mention customer service sucks!
        Let’s hope we both have a better week.
        Take care and good luck tomorrow!

        • Well, it used to just be CBS Sunday Morning, which was my equivalent of reading the Sunday paper. That time was sacrosanct, as I like watching it in HD, which means I have to watch it live over the air (my TiVo is an old SD one, so I can’t watch HD on my cable). But then I started extending my Sunday lounging time and kind of got hooked on Face the Nation. While I agree that this political situation is awful, it’s also kind of fascinating and, most of all, it’s just nice hearing a bunch of intelligent, knowledgeable people really talking about this stuff, rather than the idiots or the ones that talk in empty sound bites. Mentally stimulating, which is a good segue from lounging to working.

          • Hi Sandra, I too am a big fan of Sunday morning, been watching for years? I call it my church lol. I watch following show sometimes, but lately tired in general about politics. During football season I use the break after Sunday morning and the fox pre game show for a swim or shower.
            How did it go Monday? I still haven’t made my way through all comments so don’t know if you posted about Monday.

            • I honestly don’t remember Monday anymore…it seems like a long, long time ago. But, overall, this week was definitely a much better one than last week (still very exhausting, but not as emotional). And my most difficult customer *finally* gave me a clear idea of what she wanted (although I’ve now found a little hitch with that…she wants all of the images and text of the process to show up on one screen in the video (built gradually throughout the video), but I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve realized that there’s no way it’s all going to fit. I sent her an email about that, with a few possible solutions, but, although I know she saw the email (I set a watch on that), she hasn’t responded. So, unless she does before the end of today, I guess I won’t be working on her project this weekend!

              But it’s not like I don’t have lots of other stuff to work on this weekend….haven’t decided for sure what I’m going to do on Sunday – on the one hand, I feel like I’ll regret losing a day in which I could make some progress, but, on the other hand, I’m getting really burnt out. It’s sad when my favorite time in the past few weeks was when I was too sick to work and took that nice 3-day “vacation” — I might have felt awful, but it was sooo nice to just lie there and do nothing more strenuous than watch TV for a few days.

  9. Hi Lee, happy Saturday! I couldn’t reply under the pic of your baby, 🐶 so hope you see this. Awwww so cute brought a big smile to my face so, thank you!
    My lil Hank had an allergy attack last night, middle of night or should I say early morning. Gave him his meds, he quit coughing, but was awake most of night, think he was scared, so guess who else got very lil sleep? Which hopefully will mean nice long nap.
    Weather is nice with exception of wind so should be able to get in pool, high today 86 (f).
    I don’t know to covert to (c) ☹
    Hope your day is going well. Thanks for the nice thoughts.😄🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣

    • Sorry to hear Hank was unwell,
      Hope you’ve had a good day

      • He is better think to much pollen! He had a great day as I was trimming plants back away from screen, then I was in pool. He managed to get wet and snag 2 lizards! Bogey has no interest what’s so ever in hunting he just lays with me and watches Hank like he is crazy.

  10. I’ve placed all the req pieces, I’ve won everything from chips, so how do I get the final club points to get the last prize there (final tower upgrade)? Thx for the help😎


    Happy Showoff Saturday, Tappers

  12. Should I get either the duff brewery, cracker factory or Springfield museum? Thanks for anybody that is reading this on Friday! Happy good Friday and I hope everybody has a great Easter!!!

    • Depends what you like mostly, personally I’d pick Duff Brewery or Cracker Factory over the museum, as both come with a character and I don’t think the museum does (going by memory here, which is foggy at best) Between the first two, although I love anything Duff, Luann I believe also unlocks the Fleet-A-Pita questline, to unlock the busses also. Not to mention it gives Kirk a task at the cracker factory to make him premium.

    • Hey exnero547 , to answer your question . You have to go with Duff brewery . I believe it pays more / aka more jobs . But that’s just me, hopefully that helped some. Enjoy 🤘🏻

    • Hi! Check out this post from Alissa, Bunny and Wookiee:

      This gives you a lot of ideas and rationales for how to spend your hard-earned donuts, but if you don’t have time to read it all today and you are itching to spend your sprinkles, they all recommend Duff Brewery, two of the three recommend the Cracker Factory, and no one recommends Springfield Museum.

      Happy Easter!

      • Thank you for this resource did read it all and found it very helpful. Decided to get duff brewery as that was the one I wanted the most. Thank you so much! Have a great Easter!!

  13. Alissa, Bunny and Wookiee…sorry if this counts as a spoiler, as I do not know if what happened to me was a glitch, or if it is forseeing what may happen this weekend. If you feel it is a spoiler (You may know something I don’t, you usually do lol), feel free to delete/remove this comment.

    Take this with a grain of salt as I do NOT know if this was just a glitch, or an early prompt or what. Logging into TSTO today, Bluestacks gave me a prompt in the corner, Here’s some free donuts. Upon actually getting into my game, no donuts were added, and no in-game text/prompt saying so. So MIGHT happen, might not.

  14. barleecreations (canid88)

    Dare I dream? Could we be seeing Space Coyote soon? Perhaps I’m just getting my hopes up.

  15. Hi Alissa, I’m anxiously waiting for Easter pics of Princess Riley. Hope you have a great first Easter with her. Is she walking enough to gather eggs lol (super baby)Wishing you Happy Easter today in hope you will take weekend off❤️🌷🌷🐰🐇🐇🐣🐣

    • lol it will be a very mellow Easter for her this year. Too little to do much of anything but watch…but that’s ok, we’re not in a hurry for her to grow up 🙂

      I’ll have some pictures up tomorrow and more on Sunday of her in her Easter dress 🙂


    Happy Good Friday, everyone who is still reading the open thread on Friday 🐥 🐇 🐤 🐰 🐣


    • Hi Lee happy Good Friday! Of course I’m still reading open thread on Friday.
      I’m probably done for the day, pushed my back too far this week.
      Watching repeats of Supernatural and tapping. My gardener is here which is weird he never comes on Friday so me boys going crazy grrrr.I
      I was thinking about church today (something I haven’t done in too many years) thought it might help my mood, but I don’t think I can get in Jeep, so stuck at home.
      Will have to depend on my TSTO family to help spirits.
      Hope things are good on your side of pond. Do you celebrate Easter?🐇🐇🐣🐣🐰🐰🐰🐰

      • I’m not religious, but it’s a public holiday Friday & Monday so everybody gets a long weekend, we’ve got a Turkey in the fridge for Sunday dinner, hope you have a pain-free weekend 🙂

        • Yeah a four day weekend for you! I also have a turkey in fridge for Sunday dinner, great minds think a like.😉Too bad u r so far away we could have Sunday “Tea” together.
          I’m looking forward to a very quiet weekend, just me & doggies. 🐶🐶 If weather cooperates hoping to soak in pool (mine is equipped with jets so nice for back. Right now I feel like my back is being snapped in half! All physical labor done, so hopefully a restful weekend will help!
          Almost caught up with all DVR shows, so will finish those off as we are switching carriers next week.
          You are probably 😴, so when you read this good morning. Hope you have a nice weekend.🐇🐰🐣

          • Good morning Cindy,
            Hope you have a pain-free day
