Addicts Open Thread

Don’t forget to vote in this week’s Addicts Bracket Challenge!

And details about the new Tapped Out Facebook teaser can be found here..

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…only a few more days left in the Homer’s Chiliad Event, Event Ends June 15th, have you unlocked everything yet?  Ready for what’s next?

Speaking of what’s next…EA had a little oops moment and dropped some hints on what’s coming next.  What are your thoughts on the whole thing? (Try to give a WARNING Spoiler in your comment about it…as we do have some players who try hard not to know what’s coming until it hits…)

Safi helped us launch the Addicts Bracket Challenge this week, to find the most desired character for TSTO.  What are your thoughts on the challenge?  Have you voted yet?  Remember…with SO many characters it’s hard to narrow it down to just 8 in each category.  

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Ready for the official start of summer soon?

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. Did anyone ever figure this out ?? I’m having the same trouble !!

    Hi neighbors and fellow super hero friends!

    First off, Happy Anniversary Sandra!! Congratulations on your 30th!

    Second, I feel a bit out of the loop as I’ve still been tapping daily in my game – just not quite up to date on the addicts threads. I took a much needed break after I quit my job to get back to feeling human again and a little social media vacation. I’ve spent the last week finally getting my town almost back in order, though the wild west still has not been discovered yet, as it’s still in thought process of being laid out. =) Hoping I’ll get it all done in the next week. I too have had “movers regret” after shifting something out of place, which then leads itself to a moving a bunch of stuff all over the place. In game issues! lol

    I feel badly for declining a few neighbor requests in the last few events, one I think being TSTO Addict. Sorry about that .. a life moment led me to delete a few things I had not intended to.

    It’s been a weary week with national events on my tv making my heart sad. My middle dog needs a crazy expensive spine surgery which I can’t afford which makes me love this game even more for the escape it provides, even in the wee hours when I can’t sleep. I kinda find it funny I dream of Homer and numerous green squares that I just can’t seem to line up just right!

    Thank you for this outlet of a wealth of information, strategies and fellow neighbors, my 3 top notch moderators! I’m loving this second act to Super Hero antics! I wanted to say hi and that I’m still here, even though it’s been reading on the sidelines.

  3. Any word yet on the Play Dough factory? I haven’t had free donuts since April 1st..


    • You’d need to contact EA, since this is a glitch in your personal game. I doubt there’s anyone here who can help you.


  4. Quid Iodendum

    I’ve been wondering about some of the craft items, particularly the lucite ones. Do they provide a benefit, or are they just decorations?


  5. MAB The Great

    To all those who have already bought the Basketball Court (Hi Ryan😄)…

    Does it come with the ‘flying machine’ and, if it doesn’t, do you think that it is that going to be a separate purchase further down the line? Or is it something I missed from the first Superheroes event?


  6. Who is that handsome devil on the far right?
    Is it Mango Man, Papaya Person or Banana Beanie (without the chocolate coating)?
    OH YEAH!!! It’s Skyfinger, the most powerful one of all!!!! (I hardly recognised myself with that mask on)😛

    • I like if you play on your iPhone (sorry don’t have an android phone to compare but i’m sure it does) you actually get to see Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy. It must be due to the aspect ratio of the devices, noticed it a fair while ago.

      • It’s funny…i’ve been thinking just the opposite…that I like the splash screen with the fewer characters better (maybe because it focuses more on the core Simpsons characters?). Graphically, to my eye, it just looks better.


        • Yeah i cab see what you mean, i’ve no preference myself on this splacsh screen but other events I think you a good little detail that just adds to it.


  7. I have only just realised a cool little feature with the monorail recycle depots. The little light in front of the doors are illuminated if you have someone recycling something, if noone is recycling its turned of. It’s a small little detail but very cool I think, saves you tapping kn it to see if you have ppl on task there!


    • It’s not just the little porch lights in front…the big windows in each recycling center light up, too!


      • I did not see that. I love how there are many minute details in this game that you pick up along the way after having the content for ages.
        Thats why (to partially steal a line from Wookie) it’s the BEST….GAME….EVER!!

    Woohoo! I only visit KL once a day and got 5 donuts in December so these came early 😄😄😄

    Liked by 3 people

    • Congrats on the bonuts, but I don’t think that was early…300 taps at 3 balloons a day, is 100 days. If you last got them in December, you should have gotten them again by April or so, no?


      • MAB The Great

        That would make sense. I took it as paying out a minimum of once every 300 attempts (3 taps = 1 attempt) at the Sideshow not every 300 taps…



  9. Is this the sincere apology thread?
    Very sorry to be a pain Alissa,I didn’t realize but do now.

  10. Seeking professional advice and at risk of showing my age but I have been tapping for a couple of years now and very recently decided to download the game onto my phone. I play on the tablet in the morning then try to play on phone during the day but I get a warning, “your other device did not save your Springfield. Sign in to that device to continue.” The phone has auto loaded all updates twice now. Is there a “save” that I should be initiating when I’m done, is it because of Apple/Andriod (tablet /phone) conflict? Not sure. Any advice or tip is very much appreciated, thank you.


    • I get it all the time. Even on one device. Usually means you left the game too soon and it thinks you’re still in there. Just want to make sure the progress you just made was saved.

      In the future, try to force a sync. Go visit a neighbors and back. That will make sure all you did was saved.

      Most of the time, I just tap to play anyway and play on.

      • Thank you Bunny, I will try the force sync, still wondering why the phone would re-load all updates…. This process can take upwards of half of an hour.


      • Tried force sync every time I leave the game, have been able to switch from one device to the other without incident. Tapped “play now” then “continue”. All is well …thanks again


  11. I’ve encountered a bug and if I’m not alone, this is an opportune time to rack up that real estate value once and for all!

    A couple of days ago I resumed the tedious task of collecting yoga mats and pills to upgrade my five remaining Business Centers (I started before the Super Hero update). Today when I hit the necessary totals I upgraded one of the buildings but something was off. I still could upgrade the rest although 125 of my 200 pills should have been spent. Lo and behold, neither my pills nor mats were gone :O I kept upgrading with no change so what should’ve taken me weeks took a couple of seconds!

    Weirdly enough this bug didn’t affect celphones. When I upgraded the Valet Parking the phones disappeared as usual but the mats were untouched. Also, I couldn’t make more pills nor buy more land without spending mats, the bug seemed to only affect building upgrades.

    Has anyone else have this happen to them? Try it out, maybe it’s the event update that’s causing the bug? I’ll have to wait 8 hours until I can try again, I ran out of upgradeable buildings. Only 9 million left to Billionare Haven! 😀

    PS: I haven’t read all the comments so maybe I’m not the first to notice this.


    • Knew I shouldn’t have tried it…looks like this has been patched and now I have to go back to grinding pills, just when I was getting to the point of being able to use the ones I earn via the insanity game to go over the limit. 😦

      I’ll bet as I keep reading through the emails to catch up on all of the comments, someone is going to mention this was patched…my bad for not catching up with the comments before giving this a try (but, between Lee’s comments and yours, I was enticed and thought for once I’d take a risk and try to go capitalize on a glitch before they fixed it (unlike the 40K glitch I missed out on because I was too chicken to try out when I read that some folks had gotten locked out of their game)).

    • Son of an F. Much have been patched. 😥 There I was sitting on upgrading anything because of (il)logical thoughts… I guess my new “logical” thought is to always try different things whenever a new update hits, because you never know what is about to be patched. 😉

  12. Event queries…
    Bandaids are a kinda pointless purchase if you tap every 4 hours?
    Are neighbourino donuts switched off again?


  13. Did a quick scan of the Chilliad links, I was looking to find the list of receivable rewards, so far things like a pumpkin patch, cane field and Stonecutters fence have been “won”, but I was kinda wondering what else, probably missed the post!


  14. Ok, foot-in-mouth…
    The “rumored” Nuke payout from sending your rocket is true, mine is now proudly place in front of my space centre for my next ICBM launch 😉

  15. Quid Iodendum

    I suspected something a while back, which I now have evidence to confirm. When a new strip of land is added, the price of land goes down…for the exact same square of land. It seems the price of the ‘bottom strip’ remains consistent, but as each strip of land is added, the one above it (that used to be the bottom strip) is now one up from the bottom, with a corresponding price drop.

  16. Just a heads up to all my neighbors. I don’t know how much I’ll be in the game the next few days. My boys wrestling team is hosting a camp at their facility and since I’m a coaches wife I’m getting volunteered to help…a lot😆. So, if I’m not able to tap everyday like I normally do, please don’t hold it against me. I will be back😁. Plus, this is going to be my baby girls first year of wrestling so I’m super excited for her!

    • i hear you on “getting volunteered” to help with your kids’ sports teams. haven’t had enough time to officially commit to any coaching positions, but i’ve already had to step up to asst coach in my son’s second soccer season, as well as asst/bench coach his baseball team the past two seasons. it’s all good though, it’s fun being involved, and if i’m gonna be there i might as well be helping out. good luck with your boy’s wrestling camp, and no worries about how much you’ll be in the game!


    • You actually don’t need to worry about that…during this event, we only tap felons, not buildings and there’s no difference to your neighbors if you visit their town or not.

      So, enjoy! 🙂


    • Don’t worry… I removed you!

      😝 J/K


  17. Happy Tuesday, tappers!

    I finished the chiliad last week and am averaging roughly 50-60 taps on insanity mode (my record is 66). I like the addition of the mini games and I wish wed been able to keep some from the casino event as those were a lot of fun. I’m in the boat of tappers who’d like a little break before the next big thing as I’m in my last week of school before exams and have a lot of work to get done. However, I’ll be on vacation for a week in mid-July so part of me wants to get into the event and get through it before then (but I figure the event will run through July anyways….hope I can still get all the prizes as the theme is my favourite).


    I associate superheroes with comic book guy so I’m hopeful that they’ll bring kumiko back for the event. I’d love to have her in my game. I also hope they’ll bring back bartman and fruit bat man. Overall, I’m really looking forward to it. As I said above, I’m a major marvel/dc fan.

    So, my question(s) of the week: Team Marvel or Team DC? Favourite superhero/superhero movie? And if you could have a superpower, what would it be?

    Hope y’all have a great week! Up up and away 😉


    • Wow, no sooner had I typed this out did the event hit…..WOOHOO! So much for spoilers haha 😁

    • Good luck with your exams.

      Definitely Team DC here. My childhood room at my parents place is still adorned with three things: lots of The Simpsons, lots of Wayne Gretzky, and lots of Batman. Next to Tapped Out, my next favourite iPad game is Injustice Gods Among Us. If I had anyones superpower (not counting Batman cause he’s just cool without superpowers), I’d probably go with The Flash and be a super speedster. I’d never be late, get so much accomplished, and can you imagine how fast I could tap my Springfield? What superpower would you want?


      • Thanks Safi! My current room is sort of like yours, except mine has a mashup of superheroes, disney, and then girly stuff from when I was younger. When I used to think about what power I’d want, my answer was always something cool like teleportation or time travel but now that I’ve been unwell for a couple years, I’d like the ability to heal. After spending so much time in hospitals, I imagine all the people I’d be able to help and it just seems to make sense to me 🙂

    • Great questions!
      1. I am more of a Marvel fan but also love DC.
      2. My favourite superhero film is probably any of The Avengers films just because they are loud and fun …. not too much brain power required.
      3. I would love to have the powers of telepathy and telekinesis like Phoenix!

      I also love watching all the superhero TV programmes that are on at the moment.

      • I LOVE the avengers! That, guardians of the galaxy, and thor are my favourite marvel movies to date. And I love the weekly superhero shows too. Very sad that agent carter was cancelled as I was quite hopeful for a third season 😦

        • Agent Carter was my favorite, but I think it was too grown up for the fan boys. It just had a more “mature” feeling to it. I’m hoping that it might get picked up by another outlet…I thought I read somewhere a while ago that they were shopping it around.


          • It was my favourite too (that spot used to belong to agents of shield but I feel that’s gone downhill sadly). Season 2 was even better than the first imo. I’m hopeful for something like hulu or Netflix, especially considering the fact that season 2 ended on a cliffhanger.

            I liked Agent Carter too but my 11 year old son thought it was ‘boring’ so yes I think it probably was too grown up for the fan boys. Hopefully someone will pick it up!

            I watched Deadpool last night and it was very funny so I might have to add that to my list of favourite Marvel films!

      • I still have to see deadpool (along with several other movies I’ve missed) but I heard it was hilarious so I’m looking forward to it 😁


    • Sadly, if that were the case Kumiko would have be spoiled as coming already! I mean, I wouldn’t have been able to avoid hearing it. Sorry.


  18. Sandra, I’m wondering if you are going to watch “Wrecked” (what looks like a “Lost” spoof series), it premieres tonight but, since I read it’s your anniversary I’m going to assume not ;p


    • It’s not on my TiVo’s To Do list (partly because I didn’t know it was going to be on), so I’ll have to go check out which channel it’s on, to see if I’ll just watch it on my Roku or watch it live white my TiVo records whatever (or vice versa).

      At any rate, thanks for the heads up! 🙂


      • Sandra, It’s on TBS (if you have that), same network as Conan, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Angie Tribeca, and Multi-marathons of The Big Bang Theory.

        I’m not overly optimistic on the series, just hoping it’s funny enough and bearable 🙂

    • Couldn’t check it out tonight, but I’ve got my TiVo set to record it a couple of days from now.

      I don’t have high hopes for it, but I figure I’d at least give it a try! 🙂
