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…..

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode, Frink Gets Testy.  What do you think will happen in the new episode?

The Buck Stops Here/Episode tie-in/Stonecutters “events” all end this week.  What are your final thoughts no the “events”?  Which items did you pick up?  Ready for what’s next?

ICYMI…Addicts Live Episode 23 aired yesterday.  We shared our thoughts about nuking and rebuilding your Springfield.  What’s your take?

How was 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. What a wonderful day. It is so great to wake up every day.


  2. Has anyone else got the Homer Chiliad event running at the moment? I’m a bit puzzled that I’m playing an event that I can’t see anyone talking about…


  3. Let me preface this by stating that even mentioning it makes me nervous of potential consequences…
    I’m a freemium player who only gets extra donuts via the rail yard, daily tasks, & Maggie’s game. I buy what I really want only, as it can take awhile to accrue a good amount of donuts. So, I bought the Stonecutter’s Lodge before The Buck Stops Here event ended because I wasn’t playing when it first was available and I couldn’t pass up the deal. If I recall correctly, it was priced at 140 donuts with a bonus rebate of 40 donuts. I got the notice that I was getting 40 donuts back… but my donut count went right back to 148, which means I got the lodge for free as my donut count was 148 before the purchase. Pretty cool, but I figured there had to be glitch.
    Days later, I’m running my Springfielders through the recycling centers like mad before these donuts disappear so I could buy something else I wanted before my game realized it’s mistake & took 100 donuts away.
    Today, I finally had enough to get away with it… and get away with it, I did! So now that I have Apu’s Apartment along with Manjula , I’m scared it’ll be taken away from me!
    Have I just gotten away with something awesome or am I doomed to lose my practically stolen treasure once EA realizes the mistake?

  4. I didn’t see a show-off post for The Buck Stops Here items so I want to show what I done with the prizes from the event here and I wanted to include the Christmas items from this year on this post since I missed the original show-off post.

  5. Spent donuts on the mystery box to get the mastermind volcano lair. I was charged but it never appeared. Anyone else ever have this problem?


  6. Hi Mab! Hi everyone! The whole Hawaii thing was just horrible. I’m sorry your niece and nephew had to go through something so scary. There should be more protocols in place so something like this doesn’t happen. Downsizing is hard, glad you are able to keep your pets, books and plants though. My husband and I went from a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom house to a 2 br 1 bathroom trailer with a teeny tiny yard to keep our pet. Good luck. Happy tapping, waiting for hubby to get off so I get home to cook. Stay warm everyone.

  7. Hi Team,
    I’m reading about not being able to log into the server. I am not having that problem, but I have been having an issue of having to re-download and log into the game almost every time I want to play.
    Contacting EA has proved useless as they say they are “aware” of the problem.
    This has been going on for weeks now.
    Had anyone figured out a fix for this on their own?


  8. RIP Dolores O’Riordan…

  9. I tried the convention center sale technique and true to the earlier post, I sold it for $37,500, repurchased for $150k and received $150k credit. But the build time is 4 hours? Did EA change this up?


  10. Happy MLK Day to all in the USA. Have an awesome week!

  12. I’ve added a little to the fix in case you run into trouble again…

    A footnote:
    This issue is affecting some users across a variety of devices in many areas so there does’t seem to be a common link.
    If this works for you and you get locked out again it may just be that you’ve been unlucky and the random glitch has struck again.
    In that case it’s worth another go, even if it only lets you get in a few rounds, until a permanent solution can be found and applied by the EA team.
    Once again, good luck.

  13. Well! I will definitely not do the iOs update until it’s all fixed!
    We breaking a new record in Perth Australia today, with allready over 60mm of rain. The average for January is about 16 mm! And it’s still pouring down! The last time we had big rain was in August, yet it was no more than 25mm in one day!
    I had the cherry on the cake today in this deluge, a flat tyre!!!!
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Happy week everyone! Don’t complain, it can always be worse! I don’t complain! I laughed it off! What are the odds to get a flat tyre on a heavy rainy day! Hey!?!

  14. Since the current event isn’t all that demanding, I took a break from the game for a couple of days. Lucky me, it seems I neatly sidestepped all the connectivity issues. 🙂
    On sunday afternoon, with nothing to do, I started my game, and pushed a few things around a bit, but I am still not sure how to use the Stonecutter Tunnel(s). At the time, I had about 270 million in-game cash and suddenly decided to try my hand at farming via Rat Trap Trucks (now say that three times fast 😉 ), to get rid of all that cash.
    Bought a day for the XP Collider and started placing the Trucks, maybe about ten at a time, and kept tap-tap-tapping on those pesky level-up messages. Got Maggie for my mountain, and made it to the last level, but there was still a lot of money left. After a few hours break I started again, but 50 million cash and about a 1000 donuts later, I gave up. No way I was going to be able to burn through all my cash. Still, it is nice to know that there is a way to earn a few donuts if needed, without the tedious log-in-every-four-hours bit for KEM farming, even though that probably gives you more donuts for less cash.

  15. Anyone else getting the message that you have placed over 7500 items in your game and your game might not perform well? I don’t want to nuke my Springfield and start over. I was just wondering if EA will ever expand this item limit, otherwise, I find it harder and harder to continue playing and I still want to.


    • The actual limit is around 10,400 items…as long as your game is playing well, don’t worry about it. I’m over 10,300 and my game is ok.

      • Thanks. Everything seems to be fine for now except for the fact that some of my water has disappeared and I can’t place it in that same spot anymore.

        • I have had the ‘too many decorations’ message many times too.
          My game still performs well, (apart from sometimes the decorations might look a little funny- like it will look like a splodge of colours rather than the item it is meant to be) but scrolling away from it and coming back fixes the problem and that has only happened a couple of times.

          I am also having the water problem, I am not able to place water on the far right hand side of my game- I had water there (on the outside border) and it disappeared… it ‘turned into snow’ and I am no longer able to place water there…
          I read other comments on this site about it happening to other players too- (Sorry, I don’t remember which thread on here it was on though)


  16. Getting the Bart screen on one of my accounts. Yesterday I managed to get into the game once…but after that I got the Bart screen again. It”s the 3rd day now. I’m on Android.
