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!

      • 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. 😐

          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 😛

          Liked by 1 person

          • 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 🙂

      • 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!

  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.

  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.

  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 😛
