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!

HOMERPALOOZA!!!  It’s musicfest time in Springfield!  Woohoo!   What are your thoughts on the latest event to hit our towns?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Remember, in TWO weeks we’ll be doing an Addicts Meetup at Universal Studios in Hollywood!  We hope to see you there!

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. Does anyone know how many lawyers you can bank? Seeing as how the next part of the event is coming soon I wanted to reserve as many lawyers as I can to get a jump on it when it starts.

  2. Has anyone else had to just download a 600Mb update? I am a little peeved as I am on holiday with limited bandwidth to last 2 more weeks and Tapped out just wiped a third of it.

  3. Im sure answer to this is somewhere can’t find it…why can I move stuff to bottom expansion land but no roads or nothing??…is it the end cause can build normally on right hand land? Thx

  4. Is there a current prize list for the excavation site?

    • There’s a detailed post coming on it, but it won’t be released until after the event. Can you wait 4.5 more weeks? Or want me to tell you now?

  5. I might be alone on this one. But with NPCbs and even some playable characters I’d like to be able to restrict where then can go. For example: the police dog limited to the area I’ve created around my station, Santas little helper and snowball 2 near the simpsons house. Robots near drinks lab etc.

    • I would agree good idea.. but with the option to cruise the whole town as they cause some I would like to be in a certain area of town and some get the whole town. If you could draw an area with your finger or drag a box of the area you’d like them to be that would be cool. Good thinking.

  6. I found in Apu’s task list that he has a 3 hour task at the Kwik-E-Merch and it looks like there is no animation at that location maybe after the event there might be one.

  7. I’ve spent more pink sprinkles on the current event than any other, love it!

  8. Apologies to my neighbours for lack of visits. My game has been crashing a lot. Not too many items, but too much visual stuff going on. Will try to put everyone indoors or send to KL, if the game allows. KL crashing a lot too. Shame. X

  9. It’s same to assume that it’s better to get bleeding gums over the Freeman/Shredder because bleeding gums has more value because he carries over right?

  10. Debated whether to purchase the Tailgate – 4% for a net price of 100 after a 100 rebate, EXCELLENT, , but……
    I did the old thing of “would I be disappointed if I didn’t get it?”

    Guess what – I really wouldn’t b bothered.
    So I ain’t spending donuts, I’ll wait for what is coming next.

  11. I meant to ask where is the “new venue” that’s supposed to come with the free land token in act one?

    Another week, still no Jub Jub in my Vault…. Sigh

  13. This is totally random, but I just wanted to vent. I have a little corner of my Springfield set up from the Wild West event last year and I’ve found that Casino Nessie and Stampy always gravitate to it and just wander around the dirt roads! It’s such a dumb thing to be fretting over but it makes me bonkers sometimes.

    I also found sometimes it’s difficult to clear Lance Murdock. I can’t remember what task it is, but he’ll be stuck in like the church or KEM and I have to wait for him to leave so I can clear him if he’s done with the tasks. ::shrug::

    • Seen the same with the Wiccans, usually in the same area all the time.

    • It’s Lance Murdock’s 12h Make Peace with a God task. Annoying when he does get stuck. I usually have to go the neighbor screen and back to get him out.

    • I had the same problem with Nessie. I removed all the western street sections then made her an island with one tile and a moat. She was imprisoned there until I used the western street to design my bowling alley, then she kept hanging out there. I got tired of her blocking the bowlers, so I put her in storage. It’s a shame because I enjoyed seeing her in Springfield.

      • i actually don’t have this problem, because i don’t have any western street tile in my town… just not a fan. instead, all the dirt roads in my town are made with the regular dirt tile. think it gives a more natural look that way.

  14. How can I get “you have been served ——” notification turned? It’s irritating because they come with sound. I have push-up notification turnde off from my game but that doesn’t help.

  15. Hi all, quick question: I got the spooky campfire during the last update, when I tap on it it says it’s at level 1, can I increase its level by sending kids on tasks there and what happens when it’s level goes up? Thanks in advance for any help 🙂

    • I’m not 100% sure but I think it could only be leveled up during the event when it was first released.

  16. I notice that the spotlight dance bot shows up on the City Hall task list as “waiting for something to do” but has been billed as an NPC and just dances when tapped. I’m new and only have a few NPCs but none of my other NPCs show up. Is this typical and I’m just new, is this a bug, or is there a chance the bot might get something to do in the future?

    • This has happened once or twice before where an NPC showed up there. It most likely will remain an NPC and eventually EA will remove its name from the list.

    • I believe that the same thing happened with Rosie the robot

  17. Help…. i don’t know what i did.. but i am not receiving any email from TSTO Addicts… hoping posting here will help???!? My mail room is so lonesome without You….. ~pouts~

    • From the home page, if you click on “Manage” under the “You are following this blog” section, you should be able to click on the settings and confirm your email settings are appropriately set.

      • Thanks!…..i joined the group.. now… I can reply and know i am following this blog… again.. Thanks!

  18. Oh, nooooo! What to do? What to do? I’m sure someone else has had this problem before and somebody probably know what to do! I have no crafting option with this event! You know how there are normally 4 icons to the left of the event screen? I only have two! I can send my characters to play and I can see Homerpalooza prizes, but nothing else. I’ve signed out and signed back in, hoping it would “reset”, but still no luck! Any ideas?
