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…..

We’re nearing the finish line for Homerpalooza, as it enters its final week, how are you doing on the prize track? How’s your crafting coming along?  Any great Homerpalooza designs?  Be sure to share your designs for the next Springfield Showoff.

On Friday Safi announced the winner of the 2017 Bracket Battle for the most desired building.  What are your thoughts on the winning building?  Which one was your pick for the winner?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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. Work is out till Monday morning….
    Just got home in time to get the washing off the line five minutes before it started raining ……
    (that keeps me in Mrs.Lee3472’s good books)

    Now going to log in and get the monster truck straight away because I was only 1,000 away last time I played …..

    I’ll be looking out for neighbours who need help with lawyers


  2. I recently got a warning from EA about the number of items I have in my Springfield. I haven’t noticed any game play problems, but I did remove some decorations I have to give me some breathing room. Another thing I’m doing is replacing all the short monorail tracks I have as I get new, normal sized tracks. So here’s my spiel. I’d like as many as people as i can to email EA asking them to set up some kind of trade in for monorail tracks. Right now I’m just trying to cut back on the number of individual track pieces, but I also have several hundred 90 and 45 turn tracks that I will never use.
    PS, I’d also like EA to let us sell more items for in game cash or premium items for donuts,

  3. Does anyone have a prediction of what will happen with the stages at the end of this event?

  4. Who else has started Kwik-E-Mart Farmington for donuts to prepare for the Halloween event?! They’re always my favorite 🙂 Hoping to have a few hundred donuts to spend 🙂

  5. I have a question for anyone wanting to give their two cents. I was looking around for posts on the S.I.B the street sweeper and I found it (thank you Alissa, oh and by the way ANYONE who wants to see how hard this girl works just search the premium guide to see all the S.I.B posts, staggering that’s deduction. I appreciate it). Anyways my question I saw a picture in the post where it looked as if mab took a picture of Lee’s town and it had a channel 6 van on the street. Was that a trick of the eye or did are you able to do that somehow? Thanks.

  6. Are we going to be losing the vault at some point?

    • I think this is the last week for it, but i haven’t checked the files to see if the dates have changed. And I don’t know what the event removal will bring

  7. Wonder what the ” filler” event will be before Halloween ?
    I like these because they usually have a leisurely pace to them.

  8. Has anyone bought the “Gold Records…” Building yet? Looks kind of boring for 70 donuts, like it’s just a big cube, but maybe there’s more to it than meets the eye?

  9. Should I buy Springfield Bowl?

  10. 1.7 billion heights


  11. I’m so disappointed by the new Vault offer today :/ the only thing I was waiting for 3months was Springfield pet shop and jub jub. I was sure it will appear today, but no.. Is it even possible? I thought we will eventually get all the offers.. Does it happen to anyone else?

  12. I had a such a busy weekend that I had limited tapping opportunities. Saturday involved an education seminar in London followed by commuting home as quick as possible so I could go to a party. Sunday involved church, a meal out with friends and then trying to prep everything ready for the first day of school today.

    Today was my first day in my new school, had an awesome day meeting everybody and getting important stuff like I.T., I.D. and my room sorted out. No kids till Wednesday so got time to prep more tomorrow.

    Luckily, I’m way ahead of the calendar and heading towards the final prize so can afford to be a bit more relaxed about tapping. I have some awesome neighbours who are great at dropping lawyers and I try to reciprocate as much as possible so thank you to them!

  13. I don’t know why, but with the Rapping Bart thing, ALL I can think of is MC Pee Pants from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.


  14. I’m 8000 away from the final prize, and 72 away from finishing the last Weird Al task. So it looks like I’ll finish everything before I unlock his Hip Hop ability!

    • Same here…just got Cletus and his truck (great visual 1 hr task!) and still one set of stuff away from Rappin Wierd Al. Guess it won’t make any difference now, since I never grind for bonuts…he’ll never know if he could have made it as a rapper😎😆.

      • That’s funny how many of you are unlocking the last prize before Weird Al. I got Manager Cletus last night, but had unlocked Hip Hop Weird Al on Saturday morning.

        • I think that mainly depends on whether you own Sherri & Terri or not. I own them, I finished last weekend, too. In my freemium B game, I don’t own them, and I just finished the second part. Not sure if I even want to go on there, though. A lot of work for basically bubkes.

        • I bought all the premium characters so my stages were almost always full. The Weird Al tasks were limited by the number of characters, and I found it to be much slower. I’ve got Cletus and done his 1 hour task (currently on his 8 hour task) but I still won’t get Weird Al for another hour!

      • Ah sorry, I just replied to another comment of yours and didn’t realise you’d already replied to me 🙂

  15. I’m usually picky with my donuts but for some reason when the game was like BUY JAZZY GOODTIMES, I was immediately like OKAY DONE

    I really like it though. 50 donuts isn’t bad for a building either…

  16. “New” items became available
    Street Sweeper – Old SIB from Alissa is YES
    Garbage Truck – old SIB from Bunny is YES
    Jazzy Good Times – old SIB not found by me but it was in Safi’s Bracket Challnge so I’ll guess it’s a YES

    So don’t ask for a SIB, Happy Stress Free Labour Day to our Hosts and all who hang out here (and those who do not)

  17. Just wanted to say that I love seeing everybody post their music taste. 😃 Also, as a native Texan, check out some Texas Country. Lots of great artists putting out great music without the corporate machine. For instance, Cody Jinks ;

  18. I have over 5000 tickets and have bought everything I wanted. Looking for ideas on what I should stock up on. Any ideas? I suppose I could get tons and tons of fans though I already have quite the number.

    • Maybe the different spotlights, if you haven’t stocked up on them already during the Casino Event? I have used a lot of them in my town. Ok, mostly in the Casino District, but I guess they are better than a ton of speakers or blow up pigs. 🙂

    • @IndianaUnderwood

      I stocked up on white spotlights. Unfortunately, they are the lowest costing item… I am building a music section in my Springfield and for Disco Stu’s I used a few cycling spotlights!

    • I always find uses for the spot lights.

    • bling cups. Just in case they are given XP/$ % multiplier in later events.

  19. Can’t sleeeeeep

  20. I’m down to once or twice a day. This event is boring me so badly. A sixth or seventh skin I’m not going to use for Bart? Wheee. A skin I probably won’t use for Cletus? Super wheee. Two of the three stages are likely to end up in storage. Some of the craftables have been okay, but… meh. I’m really hoping Halloween is better.

    • The Cletus skin pays out at a Premium rate.

      • Ea should introduce a preimuim skin button, like the Christmas light on/off, they keep changing back in my game????

    • I enjoyed Act 1. By the time Act 2 came around I was bored with the event. Now in Act 3, it feels like a chore to play. Like you, after it is over, I will most likely be storing two of the three stages (I’ll keep the rock stage). Hoping Halloween will be better too… although I guess there could be a mini event between this one and Halloween.

    • “it started badly, it tailed off a little in the middle and the less said about the end the better — but apart from that it was excellent”
