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…..

No new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How will you cope with Simpsons withdrawals?

Act 1 of Bart Royale is slated to leave Springfield Tuesday, when Act 2 will start.  How did you make out with the Act 1 prize track?

It’s Superbowl Sunday!  Will you be watching the game?  Watching the commercials?  Just at the party for the “gameday” food?

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. My older games have increase in bonus from 5% to 11.5%. My non-premium game remained the same. Anybody know what changed?

    Didn’t mean to leave the above as a reply to another comment.

  2. Hello… I’m not getting any EVENT notifications of job completions, but I get ALL of the other notifications of job completions. I’ve contacted EA and I have ALL notifications allowed from the game and my android. Plus my sister has the same exact phone and plays TSTO also, and she gets ALL the notifications including the EVENT job completions. Is there something else I can do here that I haven’t already done in order for me to get back the EVENT job completion notifications again?! THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP!!!! 😀😀👍🏼😀

    I am experiencing a constantly annoying issue with this game. I CONSTANTLY need to sign in and wait for the game to load every time I want to play. I have over 3gb of space on my phone so why is this happeneing all the time. I only stated having this issue with this event.
    Anyone else having this issue?

  5. when pyro costs you donuts you dont have =( rip pyro

  6. I have two Springfields under two different accounts. Would it be possible to merge them or import charachters from one to the other?

    • Hondoriley has reported yesterday in this forum that “Stampy the Elephant” has gone missing from that Springfield, offering a reward for his safe return. Kitty reported the next day that Stampy has been found in her Springfield, hanging around the Simpson`s house and potentially getting Rod and Todd in trouble. Maryjo305 has 18 Springfields going at the same time, so probably has the best odds of spotting lost or runaway characters at times like this then anyone else. I suggest that, YES, evidence proves that it is possible to merge or import characters from one town to the other. Although I am positive psychiatrists and psychologists cannot explain this phenomena, it is certain TSTO ADDICT TAPPERS can uncover the uncertain, bizarre and hidden truths of this game. Bookmark this page, the most trusted name in news…

      • LOL, I hope Stampy arrived back safely to hondoriley Springfield.

        Latest report:
        Bart was riding on Stamp’s back to go back to hondoriley.
        Ned was looking at his flowers and saying “what the did-do-diddly happened here?”
        Rod and Todd were both crying.
        And… I was checking myself in to Calmwood mental hospital 😛

        But.. to answer the initial question, i’m not too sure, I only have 1 tapped out town (1 is more than enough) 🙂

  7. Hi everybody! I didn’t have the chance to post on Sunday but it was a good week! It was nice to learn that Thomas Snow, who was found guilty of brutally murdering his father, Clifford Snow (mine and many others favorite HS teacher) and his mother, was sentenced to 130 years, plus a few extra for contempt of court during his trial. May he rot in prison!
    On a lighter note I have been cooking a lot. Made some homemade chicken nuggets, chicken quesadillas and yesterday I made bacon Cheeseburger Soup and my husband loved it!
    As for the game, I finished act 1 yesterday. I have some design ideas (I just need to get around to doing it). I will have a beautiful Springfield one day!

  8. Anyone else having problems loading the tsto website? It takes almost 2 minutes to get it to open

  9. I wonder why E.A changed the format of the event last time but didn’t stick with it? I enjoy this event but change it up a little. Just a thought.

  10. It’s probably been mentioned before, but why are the shadows of Homer and Skyfinger (from the headlights) on the wrong side of their bodies on the splashscreen?

  11. I have a question about Duff buildings.. I got the “Duff Center Arena” when there was a deal on it.. is there a Duff Gardens too? If yes, where do I find it? I looked under buildings and nothing.. I thought there were character tasks at the Duff Gardens. So it must still be a valid building somewhere? Or is it offered only occasionally? thanks!

    • It was a Gil offer back in the day. I think – but can’t be absolutely sure – that it has only come around once. I didn’t get it then but will if it ever reappears. If you search on this site, there’s quite a bit of content about what was offered at the time; there were a few themed decorations as well (not advised reading if you are prone to severe fomo).

    • I believe it appears/appeared when you reach level 60 and it was very glitchy when it was first released almost 2 years ago with it appearing for some players and not appearing for others. There are 5 minute tasks for a bunch of later level characters. It did come with a skin for Lisa called “Lizard Queen Lisa” who has some tasks at Duff Gardens, Beerquariums, Gnomes, and Duff Beeramid can be generated in multiples at Duff Gardens from the 5 min tasks.

  12. I’m really enjoying the game music right now! Anyone else think it’s great?

    • I always like it when there is new music for an event but wish that EA would use more than several seconds of soundtrack for the updates and that it turns off after a minute or so. Fun fact: All the music in TSTO comes from another Simpsons game called “The Simpsons Game” which is also an EA game released around the same time as “The Simpsons Movie”. You can do a search on YouTube and find the soundtracks from TSG which are worth a listen in my opinion.

  13. I wasn’t particularly cheering for the eagles to win, I just like it when the patriots lose
