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, so plenty of time to do your own Spring Cleaning in your pocket-sized Springfield!

The Gil Spring Cleaning offer is winding down, do you think we’ll see an event or level 60 this week?

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. Lee may be first to comment but definitely not last! I will be last! Me … Evil sorcerer Samdonia (enter evil laugh here) 🙂

    I was first and last…..losers 👅 👅 ✌ 👌 😃

  3. Saw this in my Twitter feed – New couch gag by Eric Goldberg:

  4. Looking all over,sure that this question has already been answered but can’t find it. Will anyone tell me what the action symbol/icon next to some characters’ jobs mean?

    • Just that… character has an “action” task. Something you can “visually” See a character doing

      • Hey Bunny, our rib conversation must have been in the back of my mind when I went to the store this afternoon and bought some baby back rib…flavored potato chips. 😄

        • Hahahahah. I prefer the meat over the chips though. 😛

          • There was a display of chips right when I walked in. I haven’t had them before so I thought why not. I’m sure they won’t compare haha. There’s a BBQ place that opened up in a small town nearby a few years ago. I’ve been there 7-8 times and the first couple I got pulled pork, and brisket. Both very good but now that I’ve tried the ribs I NEED to get them every time. So frakkin good. Expensive though. 😐

            • Always are. Like $15- $20 for 6. It can be insanely expensive. So… I Resort to BBQ or smoking my own. Though Costco makes some or has some prepped n ready for cooking that aren’t too bad or expensive

          • Same here, some flavors they come up with aren’t supposed to crunch, but since they are in chip form, they do lol Doesn’t seem right.

        • Baby back ribs sounds really creepy. Hope they don’t use real babies. That reminds me….Brandines task – make a food baby- what does it mean? Does she eat it or sell it after its born? I avoid that task.😖

          • Doesn’t sound as weird as “baby food” actually being fed to babies… As for the Brandine task, I take it as she ate so much she has a gut for however long the task is.

      • Thanks for the quick reply,always happy to find the answer to a question I should have known😀. Signed….. Feeling silly.

  5. My Lance Murdock is going a little bonkers….he’s supposed to be going on his 1-hour surgery task, but he just keeps pacing back and forth in front of the Sleep Eazy motel. I mean, I can’t blame him…surgery would make me nervous, too, but I’ve never seen him do this before!

  6. My first imagur experiment…

    Caption this!


    Call me slow, but I only just realised that all they did to make dirt was turn the river from blue to orange, my dotty ground shows the dots are identical in shape to the river


    • HI SLOW!!!

    • Does this mean we should call you Mr Slow Lee3472 or is it Mr Very Slowlee3472

    • And the river is really the grass turned blue 😛 Also, I sent you a neighbour request ( I hope you don’t mind..) It should be easy to tell which is me (if you have others pending) but my name has the word kitty in it.. 😀

      • I’ll try and remember to look out for you, next time I go in-game,
        No idea why you want to be my neighbour though, I’m useless

        • You aren’t useless to me, one of my favorites. I don’t know what I would do without your support.😄😉❤️

        • Yay, thank you for adding me, hi neighbour 😃 wanted you as a neighbour because some of Your comments on here make me laugh. 😃 You’re not useless. And… Now you have a kitten in your town 🐱 well, besides Lisa’s cat Snowball that is 😛

        • Aw Thank you, that’s nice 🙂 I like my town to look nice and pretty.

          I had a look around your town too, I like your town also, I like how your monorail has double tracks and..I like your “Welcome” message.
          I haven’t seen another town with that yet, I thought I was the only town with a welcome message 😛

          • Where the welcome message is ….used to say “happy Halloween” then “happy thanksgiving” …. “It’s a girl” when Alissa had Riley,
            and throughout December, a big number for the date,….I changed the number each day like an Advent calendar and posted a pic.

            My Monorail (as it is now) gives an 8 minute ride, but I can switch tracks and have 3 trains running a more frequent service

        • Sorry, it wouldn’t let me respond to the latest message..
          But that’s a more creative idea to change the message, I like the sound of the December countdown you had.
          My Welcome message used to say “Thank you for visiting me”
          but it has been the Welcome message ever since.
          My monorail is laughable ;-( bu…t at the time of the monorail event, my game kept crashing and I was unable to play (so I only have a few track pieces)
          I will have to ride your monorail instead 🙂

    • Slow!

      (Hey, you asked me to do it! 😉 )


    Happy St George’s Day, to my fellow English readers

    • Is it a public holiday (bank holiday?) for you or is it like St Patrick’s Day – a good excuse for a party but not a day off work etc? 😄

      And Happy Birthday William Shakespeare! Will make same ice cream and cake today in his honour 🍰🍦🍨🍦🍰

      • Hi Mike,
        We never have public holidays on Saturday, always a Monday, apart from Good Friday,

        and like St who? ……….the only thing I know about the Irish, is the amount of terrorism they carried out on our mainland throughout the seventies, ….look up “Birmingham pub bombings” but apart from that, there were bomb scares and evacuations on a weekly basis that weren’t widely reported (I grew up in Birmingham)

        That’s why there’s no green fountains or leprechauns in my town.


        • Our public holidays always happen on the date except if it is a Sunday in which case we get the Monday off – got two four day weeks ahead: Wednesday is a public holiday for my dad’s birthday (also know as Freedom Day – celebrating our first multiracial election in 1994) and Sunday, 1 May, is Workers Day so we get Monday, 2 May, off.

          My family was in Europe for two months in 1975 (Sept-Oct) so I know about the bombings in the UK. Got caught up in a bomb scare (we think) at Westminster Abbey where everyone was suddenly evacuated out the nearest entrance. Problem was I got kicked out the front while the rest of my family got sent out a rear entrance. Fortunately at 8 years old I was a Cub Scout so I knew to stay where I was and my dad found me there so it all ended well!

  9. I’m in love with today’s Google’s doodles! 🌲🍂🌾🌺🍃🌱🐠🐟🐞🐝🐸🐨🐍🌎🌍🌏

    If anyone besides me enjoys these doodles and all the art and history in them, please check

    You learn things nearly everyday from all over the world 💜

  10. Been a little quiet, busy and more than a tad overwhelmed with figuring out move literally on other side of country.
    My lil Hank had his surgery today, the tech at my vet, asked when I left which of u has worse separation anxiety? Lol first time I gave ever left him, he did great, I was prepared to go sit with him in recovery she called and said, no need he is doing great, resting no crying, shaking and wags his tail anytime we check on him. He is home of course right by his Mommy keeping away. He can finally have a drink of water & bit to eat in about 15 minutes. No rough housing or walk tonight though. Try telling Bogey that! He got the him though and is curled up right next to him. Boy I’m glad that is over, yet another stressed gone! I’m weeding them out.
    Spending weekend and next week getting ready for big yard sale next Saturday arghhhh. But I refuse to move things I don’t need. Getting bids on movers, haven’t moved in long time, ouch!
    Hope everyone is doing well! I’m plugging away on the event, not big on Cowboys so not too enthused.

    • Glad Hank is OK Cindy
      🐕 🐩 🐶

      • Thank you Lee! He still sleepy from drugs and isn’t in mood to wrestle with Bogey, but Bogey finally got the message & is leaving him alone for most part. Hank is attached to my body I think!
        Makes it hard to get ready for yard sale, not to mention Bogey thinks he is helping. Ui put things in a box & he takes them off. I finally found everything he knicked from me, was all piled on bed on top of my pillow. I know strange, I would never want to spend a day in Bogey’s head, I think it’s a weird lil place to be!
        Hope you have a great weekend!

    • I’d love to come to CA with you. Do you have space for an extra neighbour?

  11. Ok, for the first time ever I am going to try to post a screenshot in a comment. I think the Wild West theme goes well together with the Tetanus Terminal, Camp Sensible, Spruce Caboose and the world’s largest redwood, I just wish the last three items mentioned could be placed on dirt.

    • Looks nice! And looks like we both had the same idea of pulling Willie’s generator out of storage to power the town. 😉

      • Yeah that seemed like a good idea 🙂

      • Wish they’d bring that back actually…

        • I found that skin for Willie depressing and the generator never fit in anywhere in my town, so it’s been in storage until now. But I guess that just showed why one should never sell off stuff in storage, even if you think you’ll never use it. (Unfortunately, I tend to work that way IRL, which is why my house, car, and office are so full of stuff, lol!)

          • LOL something we have in common. Might not need something today, but could need it “someday”. I bought the bare-chested Willie outfit by accident, thinking it was that one. So yeah, kinda want that one instead lol.

  12. TGI Friday! Have a sooper dooper weekend yawl ♡

  13. Omg! I have to say it! My Cubbies are kicking butt this year! Way to go Harry Carey would be proud and probably drunker than a skunk eating fermented apples!

    • Yesterday’s game was insane!!! I’m a dodger fan myself but a no-no is pretty cool to see happen (not so much when it’s against your team tho lol). Did you see the tweet the Dodgers made to the Reds after the game?? Had me dying 😂

  14. I’ve decided to come back to TSTO after a long hiatus. I think the last event I did was Wacking Day when Duff Stadium was introduced. Coming back because I’m in want of an incremental of some kind as decent ones are hard to find.

    Coming back to find Krustyland, Springfield Heights, and Squidport simultaneously was an overwhelming treat. And that a couple days before the Wild West event started. Woo too much stuff1

    So now I get to go through the lengthy process of converting Springfield into a fourth-wall-breaking slum that Burns would be proud of. An interesting transition being a recovering house farmer.

  15. Ok um, what I’m about to mention, may not be a new feature, or it may be something they just added….it just happens to be something I just now stumbled across.

    For characters that have a skin, so something in addition to their normal look, there’s a + sign at the top right corner of the character window when you click on them. If you click the + sign, it then hides the costume scroll part of the window, and locks it on the skin of your choice. Neat feature and if it’s not new I don’t know why it took me this long to notice it lol.

  16. Here’s a video of my gliding Ned, for any that haven’t seen him. If this works. We’ll see.

    • LOL, that looks funny.
      I think he is using his roller skates 😛

    • Yes. My Ned does the same thing.

    • I haven’t been doing any recycling so I haven’t seen that but I have seen other characters glide at times. Usually after completing a job. Sometimes they’ll even go backwards. Kind of like they’re doing the moonwalk. 🙂

  17. I’m surprised I didn’t see someone Frinkiac Meme (Dove’s Cry) yet.

  18. I have a suggestion for anyone who has been trying to place the cactus patch (from the past event when we got Sideshow Bob) only to find out that is doesn’t go on the dirt.. 🙁
    I placed the dirt first, then I pressed the yellow arrow icon (next to Bart and Milhouse icon) clicked on the dirt where I wanted to place the cactus patch, pressed the rubbish bin icon and the grass patch was JUST the right size for my Cactus Patch.
    Hope that helps 🙂

    • That definitely works thanks, but I can still see a green border showing the grass 🙁 wish they would allow those to go actually on the dirt/sand, but nope, got to make a buck lol

      • You’re welcome 🙂
        I know, 🙁 mine had a little bit of green border too,
        but I just put some shrubs around it, and it looks okay to me 🙂
        I’m sure there will be some creative ideas on how to hide the little green border (tho- it doesn’t look so bad)
        Maybe you could put the rake there to cover it (if you have one) I don’t remember if they were for free or for donuts.
        LOL, yes, I agree anyway to make a buck EA 😛
