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…..

After a short 1 week hiatus, the Simpsons are back this week with an all new episode!  The Season 28 Finale.  What were your thoughts on Season 28 overall?  Ready for what Season 29 will bring?

The Pin Pals mini event is winding down, what do you think will hit our games next week?  Thoughts on the Pin Pals event overall?  Which items did you purchase?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? I’m in Florida (Disney World) for a few more days…but if you’re interested you can check out photos from my trip (mostly of the Tiny Addict of course) on my Instagram Page… @AddictsAlissa

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 need some TECH HELP – I have no sound when playing TSTO on my IPAD AIR
    I have –
    Checked that I have sound on my iPad Air for other things (Facebook, Music App, Safari)
    Checked my iPad Air Settings for TSTO. It shows that Music Volume and SFX Volume are both at full volume setting.
    Checked under game options that Music Volume and SFX Volume are both at full volume setting.
    Lastly, I deleted the game and reinstalled it. Then checked the above settings again. Still, no volume but I have volume for other apps.
    Any ideas what is not working?

    • Oh, and I also did a hard boot of my iPad Air

    • Have you tried removing all the other running apps? I usually find that when TSTO is running slow or has no sound, removing all the running apps and then restarting TSTO fixes the problem. If that doesn’t work, try visiting friends and/or Krustyland.

    • Finally figured it out after finding the same question on an EA forum via a Google search. It seems that the mute/lock rotation button on the iPad Air can mute TSTO without muting the other functions on the device. So, a quick slide of that switch on the side of the device and all is good. I must have inadvertently changed the switch’s position.

    • I’m not a tech girl at all, LOL, but…
      I had a look via Google and the following was listed:
      “It could be the side ‘slide switch’ if the slide switch on the side is set to “lock rotation”, it’s still controlling volume on the game. Go into general settings, change the slide switch to mute/unmute. That should fix it. Once you have sound, you should be able to change the slide switch back to lock rotation.
      or..
      Go into Settings, then scroll down and find the Tapped Out app and click it. Then look for Notifications (Badges, sounds, banners) and click that. It should show you the different sound options and maybe you have one clicked off.
      I hope this helps. 🙂

    Homer used to have a 6 second task that would award $35.00 called “Try to survive the day” or something to that effect. It went away a few weeks ago. It sucks they took it away! I used to use that one all the time when I was steadily tapping collecting building loot, furniture, coffee or other short tasks. Luckily I have grown to where I don’t really need it anymore I guess. It helped me so much beginning this game a few months ago. Without that task it would have taken twice as long for me to begin affording hardly anything in the beginning.

  4. Kind of got bored with the game today, so started a new area of my town with the Tetunus terminal and the Hammock district. Had the terminal stored for a long time.
    Not having a long event makes me rethink my inventory, which is huge.
    Hope all are having a good week.

  5. Can anyone help me find the link to a post on this site? Sometime back there was a post that had a list and links to videos to the Simpson shorts that appeared on The Tracy Ullman Show. For the life of me I can not find it.

  7. I really hope EA holds off with the next event until next week. Tomorrow is a public holiday in Germany, and I am having a four day weekend. I don’t know if I will be able to tap where I’m going, but if it is possible, and they drop an update, I just know I won’t be able to resist. Fortunately, my husband is resigned to my TSTO-addiction by now…

  8. So, my son started a TSTO game. I told him I’d get him past level 20. I came on TSTOAddicts site (trying to get him “friends”) saying he was a beginner (@ that time a level 14). I thought I added his account to the non-vandalizing friends list. I deleted 2 “friends” from his list cause they chose to vandalize vs clicking a brown house when visiting his town. There have been numerous times in my own personal games when I could only tap one or 2 buildings (or none at all) in a “friends” town and stuck to it (vs choosing to vandalize). Why vandalize (when you agree NOT to) when you don’t need to? There have been times when I have done it accidentally (and I felt so guilty about it), but these people are choosing to on their own (& repeat offenders). I guess I wish to know if I made the right choice in deleting them, or trying to help my son get farther in his game.

    • There is no shortage of neighbors out there, if you are not happy with your neighbors remove them and find new ones. I am not against vandalizing but I rarely do it because I know it bothers some people. However sometimes I am clicking in a rush and just hit the first three buildings I see. The harm it vandalizing is temporary and the game is supposed to be fun, remember that and keep tapping

  9. Non TSTO comment.
    What a sad world we live in, when youngsters at a concert are targetted by terrorists.
    These scum cannot surely stoop any lower. Losers… you bet they are.

  10. I really hope EA fixes our inventory. I have been playing since the beginning and finding anything in my inventory is a daunting chore. I won a sir-loves-a-lot that went into storage and have not been able to find him. They really just need to add catagories for each holiday group. That alone would make things much more searchable. if they don’t want to add more catagories at least put the new items in the groups you have. There are too many things uncatagorised or just in the miscellaneous category. Or even better give us a way to organize it ourselves.
    Thank you for listening, now I just hope someone at ea does.

    • A basic search function would be worth donuts to me 👍😁…maybe in the form of a warehouse you could buy, and when you tap on it, you are able to “search the warehouse”?

      I may be wrong but I think I saw someone comment that Sir-Loves-a-lot is unique so if you already had him he doesn’t appear even though you won him…

      But I could be wrong!

      • MAB The Great, That would really suck if its true! I do have him from the original event, That means they really messed up with the claw machine or I guess they got it right, as with a real one you over pay for the garbage you get that you could buy in store for a fraction of the price! I think I have to store the machine cant help playing when I see the joystick!! (Sign of a true addict)

    • Was a temporary glitch when the Monorail tunnels were first released. If you placed a tunnel and then stored it, the mountains didn’t re-appear and you had empty property left behind. Was fixed pretty quickly, so not many people were able to take advantage of it.

    • There was a glitch some time ago that let you remove the mountains. If you placed the monorail tunnels and then removed them again, it removed the mountains right along with them – or something like that. Haven’t tried myself, though, I still have a full mountain range.

    • There was a glitch when the monorail tunnels were first released that allowed people who wanted to to remove some of their mountains could do so by placing and then storing the tunnels in succession. Sadly this glitch was patched so the mountains can no longer be removed however if you had already removed them they have not been put back.
