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…..

Don’t forget voting is open in the latest Bracket Battle!  Pick your favorite buildings to advance!

Another reminder….Springfield Showoff (Reader’s Choice) is due tonight by 8pm ET.  Send your submissions in to TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com or post them on our Showoff annoucement post.

Russian Tigger (who does an AMAZING job on FGA, despite Bunny’s mysterious disappearances) is sharing some thoughts on the new Futurama Game over on Family Guy Addicts.  Check it out if you’re playing (or interested in playing) FWOT.

Superheroes round 3 ended today..and Homer’s Cannon ends tomorrow.  So looks like we’re setup for another (hopefully big) update to hit on Tuesday!  What are your thoughts for what will hit?  Anything you’re hoping for?  Anything you’re hoping doesn’t hit?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Almost August…Summer is winding down fast!

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Ok—I give up! Please don’t judge me and I won’t judge you, but how to I get rid of an event I don’t want to participate in? I don’t intend to place rainbow crosswalks, or any of that. I’ve done the update, but it’s still there. I thought events had time limits and it wave over when the new one started.

  3. I want to thank my neighbors that remembered the Stop Drop Light.

    Debating whether if it is worth rewriting, or if any admin want to do a link with a friendly reminder of the purpose behind it.

    But again thank you for those who do it and anyone who needs a reminder you can check out the link attached to my name (“Totbox” in blue)

    • But do we know whether lawyers “time out” after 4 hours for this event? We only need the light if that’s the case. (I had to go look at your post to remember what that was about…and I’m guessing I was the person you alluded to in it as having a bad memory, but I don’t remember for sure, lol!)

  6. Hi Suerees ☺ .
    For some reason it would not let me put a reply under your name so I had to come up with this post .

    It was in the paper but the government covered it up and said it was just a weather balloon .
    See you soon.

  7. Just a reminder…you may want to save a couple days of daily tasks…hopefully they will switch to event currency when the event starts. If it doesn’t start in the next 3 days, just do the oldest task each day and you will stay ahead.

  8. Where is the calendar for the upcoming event that should come to our game sometime tomorrow?

    Hey, it’s downtime – that’s my excuse for being bored.
    My excuse for being obnoxious………

  9. Hey has there always been 20 friendship levels and prizes since the game launched? Has EA ever added new levels in the past? Just wondering I’ve been at level 20 for long time keep hoping they will add new levels/prizes.

    • I seem to remember that they added prizes at some point, but it’s been so long, I can’t remember when that happened.

    • No, they released level in several installments, but hasn’t been a new one in two years.

      • I think they should get on that and add a few levels. Now when i tap neighbors towns i get an occasional donut. Much rather work towards a prize IMO…

    • No, there weren’t always 20 friendship levels. I know there was a least once or twice since I started playing 3 years ago that they’ve added them. But it’s been a pretty long time since the last addition.

  10. For the last few days I haven’t been able to use the character button at the top left of my screen to locate my characters and complete all the jobs they’ve done. Means I have to keep hunting around or using the town hall to find characters and complete the task

    Also my Springfield Heights is showing that the maximum storage for all is 0 and so all in red for me to collect anymore.

    I’ve reported it to EA but is anyone else experiencing this? Can’t see any other comments online. I’ve tried uninstalling a couple of times. Also happens on my phone (Google Pixel) and tablet (Samsung)

    • Have you stored or incapacitaed the Employment Bureau somehow?

      • Is this the office of employment building where you can sent all characters on jobs? If so no that is still in my Springfield

        • Try storing it and then pulling it out again and placing it…I had trouble once with getting everybody out of their jobs and this did the trick. Hope it works for you 😊.

    • About a month ago, I had a lot of weirdness happen; My character button stopped working like you have (that is the most annoying part). Also I’m collecting mini event currency from all the mini events from the last year, things I upgraded like Money Mountain and the Redwood Tree are down to their lowest level, I’m collecting Friendship Points for no reason, and my rail yard isn’t collectible each week. I’ve probably missed out on 80 donuts so far between the rail yard and friend visits.
      I never reported it, because I tried contacting EA about a different issue once and just got told that they can’t do anything in my game and to look for my issue on the message board, but I keep hoping that my town will fix itself with each new update. I’m glad that someone else has finally mentioned having an issue too. Maybe now it will be fixed soon. Maybe not. I still have an extra Squeaky-Voiced Teen in my inventory from the Krustyland update how many years later.

      • Is your character button still not working or did it fix itself? Sounds like you have a lot of bugs in your Springfield!

        • Also just realised that it looks like my railyard is going to play up too as I can currently hand in items when there are no prizes and new prices unlock in 0 seconds! Hopefully an update will fix these things cause it’s ruined it for me really.

            All resolved now. Had to have a rollback but hardly lost anything as I reported it so soon. So much better now. I recommend it but I guess you will loose a lot of progress now

    • This might be a really silly suggestion but have you closed your task book by mistake? I’ve done this myself from time to time.

    • You need to get EA to fix that for you. No update will do it, because it is not a widespread problem. If you are in the US, do the call back option or chat early enough in the day so that the US support in Texas will be available. Make sure they understand the game is unplayable. Here is the link to EA help, choose missing content.

      Here is a discussion on the forum about this problem. One person got it fixed by having their town rolled back.

    • I think there may be salvation on the horizon.
      Another blog says that Burns’ Money Mountain and World’s Largest Redwood have been disabled during this event and that there is a date of September 9th for “Classic Mini Events”. That really makes me think that they were working on the mini event thing a month back and it caused an issue with some random people’s towns. I’m hopeful that this will get everything back to proper working order.
      I was very diligent about visiting friends until I lost the ability to get donuts. They probably all think I died. 🙂

  11. Hey hey everybody! I just got Sideshow Bob as a useable character (woo!) and see I have some new purchaseable items available associated with him. In particular I’m curious about the rake/s. Treated not much info in game about them and I tried searching older posts on this site but couldn’t find anything about them. Do they have a multiplier? Are they used for a task for Bob? If someone could give me the lowdown or point me to a post on this that’d be awesome! Keep tappin TSTO addicts! Cheers, Sean.

    • If you line them up in a row, Bob will go to one, step on it and get whacked in the face, then go to the next and get whacked and so on until he finishes the row. Then he will start over..the sound effects are pretty good, and it’s funny at first, but it gets old quickly. I’d say it’s worth buying the rakes, tho…at least 5 (I run mine down the beach, end to end) just to watch for a few days. I keep Bob in his Admiral skin now…he waves the flag pretty much all day, and sings “Pirates of Penzance” all night.
