Addicts Open Thread

Don’t forget today’s the last day to enter the Mr. Plow Halloween Costume giveaway! 

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 back!  Yes, after a long summer the wait is finally over!  Our favorite yellow family is back!  The Serfsons airs tonight at 8pm ET.

So what an eventful week we had.  First, we got a little epsiode tie-in for tonight’s episode, The Serfsons.  THEN we got a little magical teaser…in the form of=a Magic Monorail Station…perhaps a prelude to Halloween?

Today’s the start of October and Halloween is just around the corner, are you thinking about your costume yet?  Making any big plans?

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. The new update isn’t compatible with my galaxy S7. Can’t play without the update. 🙁

  2. An in-game update pops up a message (for PR) if you go to Krustyland.

  3. As a Life-long Cardinals fan, I say, “Go anybody playing the Cubs!”

  4. My game will not update for the Halloween quest

  5. Hey Guys – I got a notice that I have 7500 buildings in my game and that my game is too full. Does that mean I’m Tapped Out? And if so – how does one keep playing – start over with another account?

  6. Game 1 – Indians
    Game 2 – Indians
    Game 3 – Yankees
    Game 4 – Indians

  7. What’s with the rail yard? I completed it and didn’t get ant donuts! It changed back to 0.

    • It should change back to 0 right now. You can keep resetting the rail yard every time you reach 25k blueprints and earn 5 donuts each time, but without having to wait a whole week. Are you sure you didn’t get the 5 donuts? I’ve already received 45 donuts this past week from completing the monorail 9 times and am halfway to my 10th set. A few people have already earned over as many as 100 donuts from the monorail over the past week.

      • Mine just started doing it. I got one set of bonuts then just stopped. I want my characters free not assigned to a permanent task.

  8. I’m on my third straight loop through the railyard, which didn’t reset today like normal. I hope this isn’t a permanent change — while earning more donuts would be cool, I don’t need that kind of pressure 😉

  9. Help! Halloween is here – yeah!! But earlier I had an update to my game and it made everything in my super tiny. Including the words. Suggestions on how to restore to the previous size? Thanks!

  10. Deep Space Homer quest triggered for me a couple of days ago and I was wondering if it triggered for anyone else.

  11. Sweet, my monorail is letting me play through again for an extra 5 donuts (in addition to the ones I’ve earned this AM). Anyone else getting this?

    • Yes! I was shocked. I felt like I was left out last week when people were saying they were getting additional bonuts.

    • I’m on about my sixth round since this repeatability started last Tuesday. Since a new week at the rail yard would have started today, anyway, I won’t know until I finish this round whether the repeatability is still here for this week. (Also, even if it seems to be, that could change when/if we get a new event update.)

      • Are we still on for x2 blueprints ?

        • blueprints are back to normal

        • Just checked…nope. 🙁

          Still waiting to find out whether there will be the ability to do multiple rounds this week, like last week….might not know until tomorrow, depending on how the supply and demand situation plays out today.

      • Unfortunately last week if you had already gotten your bonuts when the update hit, you were NOT allowed to repeat. EA fail!

  12. Apologies if this has been asked and answered elsewhere.
    Is there a list of which buildings have Halloween skins?

    • The only ones I know of include:

      The Simpsons house (there is a skin for it called ‘Ever scream Terrors’)
      *It looks quite scary, I don’t think Ned would be happy if Rod and Todd saw it, they would be scared… 🙁

      Krusty Burger (there is a skin for it called ‘Krusty Murder’)
      *That sounds scary- I don’t think the people of Springfield should eat there- though I would be safe because I’m a vegetarian. 🙂

      Kwik E Mart (there is a skin for it called ‘Kill-E-Mart’)
      *Again- rather scary sounding name- If Apu said “thank you come again” I don’t think I would… 😛

      Moes Tavern (It doesn’t change its name- it just has a scary monster on it)
      *i think I would rather Moe keep it as Moes- not that I would go there anyway though. 😛

      There may be others that I’m not sure of- Also, for them to work in your town on your buildings, you would have to of bought them or earner them (depending on how there were earned or awarded)

      Hopefully there will be new ones this Halloween Event.

  13. Man….
    So I hated the new “serfsons” episode. I mean…yuck Not clever…derivative…and just plain “icky” for the sake of being dark and “moody?” Bad start guys. You can do much, much better.

    I’m storing my sniffing tower. Don’t want to be reminded of this horrible episode.

    • Really? I really liked it (and I’m not generally a fan of “dark”)! I thought there were lots of clever jokes (I paused the screen a bunch of times to read the names of the shops and the labels on the medicine bottles and stuff like that) – in fact, I’m really hoping we get some of those shops in our game! I laughed several times while watching the show.

      • I wasn’t a fan either…but I’m not a fan of that type of genre either.

      • I liked it too for the same reasons Sandra stated. I can understand not liking it if you’re not into the genre though. I enjoy most of the non canon episodes mainly because it’s something different. There’s only so many episodes about Homer and Marge having marriage difficulties one can stand. 🙂

    • MydadlookslikeFlanders

      I enjoyed it for the most part and laughed a few times.. Goblin Milhouse and Ogre Groundskeeper Willie were pretty cool

  14. Any thoughts on the Rigellian Queen? I’m guessing she’s a NPC, and doesn’t appear to have any bonus % attached.
