Addicts Open Thread (And Happy Mother’s Day!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Before we start off this week’s Open Thread, we want to take a minute to wish all of the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!  We hope you have a wonderful day filled with smiles, laughter, hugs and kids that aren’t fighting!

It was on this day last year that I shared with all of you that there would be a new addition joining my family…and 6 months later the Tiny Addict arrived!  So I also wanted to take a moment to thank all of you, again, for all of your support, patience and well wishes over the last year!  Y’all are the best and we consider you part of our extended family!

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. All new episode of the Simpsons tonight…in Paris!  What do you think will happen in the new episode?

Act 2 of the Wild West Event hit our games on Tuesday, what do you think of the new Act?

How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?  Anything fun planned for Mother’s Day?

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!

    So…it took me all blasted week to figure this out. Well, I hope it works…Jeremiah wanted to say hi to Miss Riley. He likes her feeties. Saw her picture and brought me his shoes. Nearly dropped the computer laughing. So….HI RILEY…💙 Jeremiah.

  4. Anyone still sending their rocket off? I do it as I tap my buildings and such, so I’m just curious what other people are getting. For days and days I have gotten nothing but Hail Ant signs and debris. I seriously don’t need any more, so if this is likely to continue I think I’ll just let it rest.

      I still send mine off in the hope of getting the warhead but so far only debris & signs – when it even takes off. I keep doing it because it does earn a little xp & there is a chance of donuts from the debris….

      My yellow submarine does a much better job of retrieving boardwalk tiles then my rocket at retrieving anything!

    • I’m still doing it at least once a day, sometimes twice, depending on the timing. I don’t mind getting debris…cleaned some up yesterday that I had been storing and got two donuts! (And I still have 25 of each type in storage….don’t know how many more there might be in there, but I also want to keep some for future decorating.) The only thing that annoys me is when I get those frikkin Hail Ants signs. I’ve gotten three or four topiaries, though I still have yet to get a miniature nuclear warhead.

      • I was getting topiaries….I think I got four, which is plenty because I had gotten some with the nature bundle and also as prizes I think from a past event. So I have seven or eight of those now. I just wish they’d change it up a bit.

  5. Whoo-hoo! First post of Sunday 5/15/16. Open Thread. Of course, it tags the PREVIOUS week’s thread, but that is becaus our hosts are home asleep on the east coast and haven’t opened up this week’s thread.

  6. Anyone know what we should be saving for act three? Is it going to be like last time? Save prospectors and hats and pickaxes and guns but dont worry about badges after you get the donuts?

      I’m spending minimum to earn General Store day 13 & 14 prizes but hoarding everything else.

      Will send prospectors to neighbours who look like they need some help to make the final prize but otherwise clutching as much as possible…

    • I would strongly guess yes…that seems to be the way these things have always worked in past events and how it’s worked in this event so far, so there’s little reason to believe anything is likely to change for Act 3.

  7. Got the prison bus this morning, seems like it was a lot of cash for a bus. Funny how they make a couple items so expensive.

    • Well, when you are at the last level, they have to do something to slow us down a bit. Plus it’s a lot easier to earn that much at level 59 than it was for earlier levels. But I agree it was kind of crazy to pay that much for a bus. Especially one that’s been in a wreck like that one!

  8. I believe Tunnel of Love was a premium item at some point. Looked for it in the store and seems it is no longer available. Popular opinion is that KL is much ado about nothing…I believe it is underutilized. Brilliant minds at EA can get it going.

    • Agree, really haven’t bothered playin’ around with KL for years, once I had my layout and design sorted I’ve only added the small trickle of content EA provides…
      I’ve mostly picked up the previous event content for KL like the Tunnel of Love because it was easily accessible.
      Maybe EA will listen and do a KL only focused event, like maybe the “Carnivale” (rival event) comes to town 🙂

      • Talked to an EA rep myself about a different issue but inquired about the limited time KL rides. Basically told me it won’t happen unless we light up EA’s forum demand/requesting them back.

        If you would like to add a waterfall to your mine check out what bellyheng posted on the Addicts Flickr page using Classic Hot Tubs and Constant Fountains (if you have them). It’s genius!

  10. Question for anyone, trying to build my Krustyland, see some rides I am not able to get in other towns. Like the Tunnel of Love; any feedback n how that is put out?

    • Those were limited time items that may or may not come back someday for purchase in the online cash shop. Was talking to a rep few weeks ago about them coming back, basically told me highly unlikely, unless we light up the EA forums requesting lol.

      • Thanks for the information even though at level 59 still really new to the game & am glad I found this site especially after my game crashed at the beginning of the casino event.

    • They were probably limited-time items…for example, I think the Tunnel of Love was available during a couple of Valentine’s Day events.

      If you want info on a particular item, this site has a great Google search engine built right into it…just go to the Search menu item in the top navigation bar (not the search box) and you can probably find the info you’re looking for. 🙂

    Hey everyone I’m trying to connect all of my monorail stations and keep getting this issue where the tracks don’t meet back up. Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone know how to solve it?

    Like

    • If you have a gap between two tracks in the circle, I find one or two short tracks fixes the issue. If you are trying to make the track look uniform, maybe hide the short tracks behind tall buildings.

      Like

    • Unfortunately you may have to move one of your stations in order to make the tracks line up. Are you trying to connect all of your monorail stations together? If so, I’d try to find one that has enough space to where you can shift it over by one or more spaces. Just connect all of your rails together until it leads back to that station and shift it accordingly so everything lines up the way you want it to. For my town I actually had to switch the direction one of my stations was facing because no matter how much I shifted things it still wouldn’t line up. Hope this helps:)

      • Forget my question about you connecting them all together. I’m naturally a blonde so sometimes I miss things lol.

    • I managed to connect all of my stations but it did involve a lot of shifting things around to get everything to connect into one circuit. Is this your aim? I used a lot of short pieces to begin with then when I got more straight pieces I was able to replace them with longer straight pieces.
      (2 short pieces equals one long)
      I also shuffled a lot of buildings to accommodate the monorail. I have one section that is all curves and s shapes. I had always intended to replace it with straight pieces once I got them but I quite like that section now. Hope this helps.😀
