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 few weeks off The Simpsons are back this week with an all new episode!  Haw-Haw Land airs tonight.  We’ll get to see how STEM episode tie-in plays into Springfield.

In addition to an episode tie-in, we got ourselves a little mini-event update in our games.  A little Buck Stops here in Springfield.  Politics and Stonecutters…what could possibly go wrong?

ICYMI…our Addicts Live 2017 Year In Review Episode (Episode 22) aired last Monday…check it our if you want to take a walk down memory lane. (including a special drop in from the Wookster)

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? How was your New Year’s Eve?  Anything fun?  Enjoying the first week of 2018?

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. River/water bug? Has anyone else noticed this? In the latest strip of land in Springfield, furthest “east”(right), I can’t place water tiles at all. I can put concrete, boardwalk, dirt paths, everything else that should be placeable on land, but if I select water, it hops to the edge of the previous limit, and doesn’t allow placement further right/east from there.


  2. I can’t get back into my game either:(


  3. Man, is EA doing maintenance or something? Can’t connect for a few hours now. Would like to finish up the current mini event today…..

    • I think they probably are doing maintenance, I was not able to connect to the game at all yesterday either and It still seems to be down today 😕 Sorry to any of my neighbours who have visited me, hopefully it will be fixed soon and I will visit you. 🐱🌸🌟

    I bought some donuts to get Number 51 and the SC table, however I’m on the fence if I should purchase Uriah and/or the Hungry Hun? I already have 8 characters that collect at the dump, so not sure if either Uriah or Hun are beneficial to me and my donut earnings there…any thoughts please? Thank you and have a lovely day!! : )


    • Uriah is definitely worth it. He can take the place of another character who may be needed during events. He can recycle plastic, metal or glass. Uter on the other hand can only collect trash and recycle plastic. Right now, I collect 5 donuts every day from the monorail. I may pick up Uter and the Music Teacher (I forget his name) and Lisa’s Recycling plant…maybe I can get 10 donuts a day.


  5. Cannot connect to server for awhile…


  6. Does anyone know if Otto and Arnie Pye are characters that may appear in the vault? Just wondered because neither of them are in the store anymore. One of the missions for Declan suggested buying Arnie to help and I have the train driver skin for Otto but I can’t buy either character. The Stonecutter skin for Arnie isn’t in the store either.


  7. In my Vault this week, I was offered the Springfield Observatory. However, it wasn’t offered at a discounted rate. It is listed at full price (75 donuts). I really want to buy it…but I’d like to save the donuts and spend them on Stonecutter outfits for Springfield.

    I thought about risking a purchase (hoping that the 20 donut rebate would be automatic), but I’m not sure if I want to risk 20 donuts or wait for EA to respond. The Stonecutter outfits will be leaving soon, so I need to make up my mind.



  8. Question I just bought jaspers stonecutter skin and his task is to paddle homers stonecutter skin but I don’t have homers can I buy it or will the task just go away?


  9. OMG- I am dying of laughter! I just put Santa on the 4 hour ‘Avoid Toy Production’ task and he is walking around my Springfield in a bikini bathing suit. (I had no clue!) Too funny! What are some funny tasks for characters that make you chuckle EVERY time you put them on?


  10. Is anyone else having trouble adding rivers to the newest land expansion? I can’t add any beyond 2 squares from the southwest edge.

    • Yes, I am… 😦
      I like to have water around the outline (border) of my town.
      When I try to place it on the far right hand side when I press the water icon- it takes me to the road that is also about 2 or squares over. (back to the left hand side of where I want to place it)
      I though it was just my game. I hope they fix it soon.


  11. Anyone else notice you can’t put water in the last two rows of land at the bottom? You can put down roads, dirt, or any other surface, but not water. Weird glitch.

  12. I’m having a problem with having to continually re-download the entire game nearly every day. I’ve got 5 gigs of storage left on my phone just for TSTO. I missed a large portion of the winter event, and now the stone cutters event just because I can’t keep spending 20 minutes downloading the thing over and over. EA sent me a generic “I’m sorry you’re having this problem, many people are having the same problem, etc.” I’ve deleted tons of stuff just so I can keep playing it 😪😢


    • I’m also having this issue on my iPhone. My iPad is fine but seems to be worse when I switch between the 2 devices. Have to reinstall the game and log in at least once a day on my iPhone.
