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…..

The Simpsons are FINALLY back this week!  Woohoo!  What do you think will happen in the new episode?

Act 2 of the Around the World Event hit this morning, what are your thoughts on Act 2 so far?  Enjoying the “trip” to Japan?


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!

    Server keeps disconecting, the game can’t remember that I won the windmill and burning tree, but it remembered that I used 20 shovels to win them? WTH?

  2. Hi all, I have noticed that there are some neighbours missing from my list 😦 (So I added some of my pending requests) welcome new neighbours 😃 but I also had other pending neighbour requests that are now also no longer there. Just wondering if anyone else has also noticed any neighbours missing/if there is a glitch? -kitty 🐱🌸🌟

      Yes Kitty, I have several neighbors that I’ve had to hide to save time on neighbor visits. I don’t usually delete them, some I can’t bring my heart to, I’ve had them for a couple of years. I check to see how long ago they played, every week or so. I only hide them if it’s been over 2 weeks. If it’s someone I no longer have anything to tap, & they are a fairly new neighbor, over a week & I delete. I noticed a lot of remodels, too. Some of the disappointment over recent “events” might have burnt them out, or (hopefully not), chased them away.

      • Hi Josephine, thank you 🙂
        But not just from ‘hiding’ them, but I mean they are no longer on my
        list at all.. Maybe they deleted me 🙁
        (I might not of had enough items to tap on or something)
        It is nice to add new neighbours to see different towns etc, but it is sad having to delete neighbours.

        • Josephine Kick@$$

          It’s a shame they deleted you if it was for lack of something to tap when they could check to see when you’d played last 😕 If you’d like to send me a request, I have a few spots open. GranmamaDar 😊

          • I know 🙁
            Maybe they didn’t delete me and there is just some sort of glitch or something..
            But if it hasn’t happened to anyone else,then I am not sure..
            But as long as they do not think I deleted them.
            aw, Thank you, I have sent a request 🙂
            (my name has the word Kitty in it, so you know to look out for me) 🙂

        • Josephine Kick@$$

          Wow, your SF is beautiful Kitty!! I love all of your notes around town, & your design with the names is fantastic!! Thanks for neighboring me😊😊

          • Aw thank you, 🙂
            Welcome to my Springfield 🙂
            I like making little notes around my town to surprise my neighbours 🙂
            I like your Springfield too,
            And you’re welcome, thank you for being my neighbour too

  3. To hopefully avoid 20k comments about the Seizure Robot, I have him, an regret him. Yes he appears in the “character” menu when you purchase, but he is just an NPC, does something when tapped, but that’s it…

  4. The following maybe obvious to some, but it is something I just figured out, and thought it may assist some tappers.

    During this event I’m not so much having issues finding the tourists, but more so finding out if there’s any tourists left in the town, due to there not being a message claiming there is no more, come back later for more like they have in the past.

    Found a workaround for this issue instead of searching town forever for the tourists, and it will indirectly let you know when there is currently no more tourists left in the town (Also I’m sure this will work in future events.)

    It works as follows:

    If you are certain by finding the next tourist you will not “level up” the crafting level (Have hundreds left, so 3-5 points won’t really matter) Go to the crafting menu, and attempt to “level up” using sky credits. It will tell you that you do not have enough, but given an option to buy with donuts, or “do it” as in attain enough sky credits. By clicking “do it” it will then take you to an available tourist in your town. Keep doing this until it no longer warps you to a tourist, stays on the same spot, and at that time you know for certain there is currently no more tourists in your town.

    Sorry if my explanation isn’t clear, but I hope this helps some people out. I know this will help me for the rest of the event, and possibly future ones since they all seem to work the same way.

  5. Sorry if someone has asked this before but is there a reason True McClure isnt a charcter in the game?

    • Yes – none of Phil Hartman’s characters are in the game, probably because he was dead before the game started. Whether it’s out of courtesy (especially because of the horrendous way that he died) or because of legal rights issues, we can only speculate.

    • I’ll tryyyyy to ignore the easy joke that there’s no character named True McClure 😉

      Troy McClure and some other OG Phil Hartman characters do not appear in TSTO our of respect to him because of his horrible, untimely death. His main characters were retired from the show in 1998, and were never introduced in TSTO.

  6. Mrrrrr SPARKLE!

  7. So I’ve been reading that once you get to level five infection, your infected tourists no longer pay out extra. I’m wondering if anyone has done the math on whether it’s better to stop tapping buildings your friends have visited once you hit level four, in order to retain bonus payouts, or if you get more benefit from tapping the buildings. My intuition says bonus payouts are better, but it’s probably wrong.

  8. Osaka Flu has now spread to 101.39% of the world – how is that even possible?

  9. Does anyone know where Jozhster went? He hasn’t played in over two weeks, and I’m wondering whether Josh is on vacation or has left the game…

  10. Just saw this on FBook and thought y’all may like to watch. This one’s for you Wookiee 😀

    • I can’t believe that wasn’t really from the show….that guy did an AWESOME job!!! (I can’t even figure out how he could manage to do it so precisely….)

      Thanks for sharing! 🙂
