Addicts Open Thread

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

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…Issue 2 of Superheroes hit this past week.  What’s your take on Issue 2 so far?  How are you doing with the prizes?

Safi’s released week 4 of 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?  Which week 4 match ups are your favorite?

I’m back from vacation!  Did ya miss me? 😉 (you can check out a bunch of photos from the trip on my Instagram instagram.com/addictsalissa)

Tomorrow’s Independence Day here in the US.  Anyone have an special plans?  How about outside of the US, what are your July 4th plans?

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. I wonder if the Stone Cutters Sacred scroll will ever come back. I lost quite a bit of my Springfield when my phone crashed and I had to get a new one. The back up only took me to just before the stonecutters event. I did manage to get some stuff back but never got the Sacred Scroll when they had brought some stuff from the past.
    I am hoping is returns one day.

  2. Howdy, neighboreenos! Do any of my nifty neighbors have the tree with that ding dong diddley snake in it? I’d like to take a gander at it to help me decide whether to craft one for myself.

    Thanks, and remember – it makes God smile as big as a 1970s-style smiley wall poster when you help a neighboreeno out! 😉

      • I think I have a space open (and can probably make one if I don’t), so, if you’d like to join my neighborhood, feel free to send me an invitation! (I can’t send any, because I have a long list of invitations pending, but I always give preference to folks I know from here.) My Origin ID is the same as my handle here.

        However, just be aware that I don’t promise never to vandalize (although I don’t generally go out if my way to do that, but, if there’s nothing else to tap when I visit, then…). During non-event times (or during events where it matters), I generally will tap in your town at least two or three times a week (I used to visit daily, but I’m afraid I haven’t been able to manage than most of the time anymore), and I’d appreciate the same, in return.

        My town isn’t the most clever one out there, by any means, but it is thoughtfully put together (except for some of the newest items, which I haven’t incorporated properly into my design yet…things are usually a work in progress on that until an event ends).

        At any rate, I’d love to add you to my neighborhood, but no hard feelings if you choose not to send me an invite! 🙂

        P.S. Apologies in advance if I’ve already asked you this…my memory isn’t very good about these things…

    • I’ve started organizing my Springfield proper from the mountain side. However Orphan Alley and all the Superhero items (including the Snake in a Tree) are visible on the bottom end parallel the mountains. Feel free to gander the Snake in a Tree there.

      • Thanks – happened to check it out just this morning in your town, after social battling there. (Your town is one of my regulars for social battling, because it sends me three 5-heart fighters to battle.)

        After checking it out, I decided to pass on the snake tree. (If I thought the snake should slither out of the tree to heed the call of the stereo speakers, I might have made a different call. 😉 )

      Did we get a WDTCF on that? I don’t get it. I think it’s like one of those party favor toys. What is it!?

  3. Way late in the week for the weekly thread, but,
    My friendship battle kept getting later,
    Last night my 11:50pm start time was too late, I fell asleep, it’s now ~2:00am , and I have three days to go to hit the magic 77

    Obviously, I am not going to arise tonight at 2:00am(on purpose)

    Does anyone know what goodies are in store for us after we surpass the magic 77?

    • I can let you know tomorrow night. I’m at 72 right now. Will hit 75 tonight, and should get 77 tomorrow night. Curious myself to see what 78 brings.

      • Great, thanks. Woke up at 3:00am, figured “what the heck”, performed my due diligence and hit 72.
        Sooooo, tomorrow, sometime AFTER 3:00am, I’ll be at 75.
        Monday! I’ll hit it!
        I’ll look for your update, either “here”, or tomorrow’s Weekly.
        As I said earlier, this is getting late in the thread.

        • I guess it’s just a random glitch that affects some irregardless of what device they use.

          I play the Cauldron every 8 hours on my iPad and have never had my Homerlayas,Burns mansion, or Players Tower change facades reverting to the lowest facade.

  7. Does the hidden SH bonus only apply to the SH buildings or does it also apply to accessories (side buildings, balconies, entrances, etc..)?

    Like

    • Buildings only. They can even be at Level 1, except for the private island, which needs to be at Level 2.

      Like

    • I believe its just the buildings.
      Deluxe Condo : 1% each
      Business Center : 2% each
      Valet Parking : 3% each
      Classic Mansion : 4% each
      Modern Mansion : 5% each
      Exclusive Resort: ??? Not sure

      Assuming you have ten of each of the first five aforementioned buildings out on display in your Springfield (no bonus if the buildings are in your inventory), you would get a hidden bonus of 150% towards your XP only (no bonus on in-game money).

      If you were fortunate enough to take advantage of the glitch where you could exceed 10 of each building, than your hidden bonus XP percentage may be higher than 150%.

      Like

      • Any idea why EA keeps this XP bonus hidden? Why not just post it publicly? And how do you even discover this in the first place??

        Like

        • How I caluclate my bonus is based on KEM farming. I have a stated percentage of 187.8%, which EA shows me when I check my conform-o-meter.

          However, when I farm KEM, each KEM should yield 2,000 XP baseline; 10,000 with the Collider activated. Yet I get 46,780 with my Collider activated or baseline 9,356 if you will. This means my XP bonus is 367.8%.

          So taking this 367.8% and subtracting the shown 187.8% indicates I have a secret hidden XP bonus of 180%.

          In addition to the standard 150% SH building bonus for ten of each buildings, I actually have 23 extra Deluxe Condos (+23%) and 2 extra Business Centres (+4%) on display; so my SH hidden bonus is actually 178%. Not quite sure where the other 2% hidden came from, but I’ll never complain about extra bonus.

          I agree, it would be nice if EA listed both the cash and the XP bonus, and not leave the XP only as hidden.

  12. I just noticed that I have an in-store update. I have not read anything about that here (the last few days anyway) and now wonder how long that has been there. It seem to be the “Heroes return to Springfield to fight evil (while gyros returns to Springfield to fight a lack of tzatziki sauce)… What? Am I on the same page as everyone else? I am playing Superheroes 2, crafted everything I want, and have 4000 of 12000 needed for my first bonut round of round 2 of Superheroes 2. If it was just a patch it would not come from an in-store update, right? If so I would have seen it somewhere. Maybe it is for those with my device only? Anyhoo, I hesitate to click update as I don`t want to start the whole darn event over again from scratch. This is just different and unexpected. Momentarily paranoid minds want to know…

    *Simply check the box that says “relax it is just a patch and please return to your normal but a bit overly strung regularly scheduled life”* Thanks!

      • Yeah, that’s what I get for being behind on reading comments here. Had I read this a couple of hours earlier, I never would have updated (at least until the end of the event). 😦

        Hope Jimbo enjoys his extra-expensive (opportunity-cost-wise) bounce tonight!
