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…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale hit Springfield last Tuesday, are you as underwhelmed with the Act 2 prize track as I am?  Which premium purchases have you made?

ICYMI….Addicts Live was all new yesterday!  So even if the game is moving slow and our favorite yellow family isn’t on TV…we’ve got you covered with lots of laughs and antics!  Check it out here

Another ICYMI….Patric recapped the miracles (and near ladder misses) from his daughter’s wedding last weekend in this Friday Filler Post.  Worth the read if you’re looking for a little non-TSTO side of life.

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  For those in the northern hemisphere, are you as ready for Spring/Summer as I am? (bring on the warmer (less depressing) weather already!)

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. I noticed the same thing too, if you change the direction of the train, (tap the yellow arrow next to Bart and Milhouse, then click on the train, click the rotate arrow then the tick) Otto will then be doing his task correctly. 🐱🌟🌸

  3. In my game I noticed that if you get the “Damaged Court House” facade for 1800 Scaps, it’s still available?! What gives? Is there also another facade is this a glitch?

    Does anyone know what the maximum price a Gulp n Blow could cost… I’m debating whether to have a farm of these for cash as they’re a 4hr payout rather than all the houses I bought before the multiplier thing kicked in.

    Like

    • In one of my games the next Gulp ‘N’ Blow will cost $146000. So far I only hit the limit on the Brown House at $17300. It might be your best best if you have plenty of land, visit a lot and stay at least 15 minutes (at least 3 harvest) per visit.

    • A Gulp’n’Blow costs 288,000$.
      Though horrible in price it has the best money per space and absolute income for frequent tappers (4x or 5x a day). ROI is fair, white or orange houses are better, but that should be no problem for more developed players.

      My farm consists of 424 white houses (two columns of land tiles) and 160 GnBs (1 column), the rest is stuffed in the inventory now.

  6. Hi Everybody!
    I’m sure lots of people have already said this, undoubtedly better than I’m about to, but I really feel like we need a new “game changer”. Springfield Heights, The Monorail, etc were updates/additions that totally changed the way we play and added a whole new element to the game. With this current land tiles situation I’m left wondering if maybe EA will introduce something that allows us to grind for tiles like we grind for tracks, pharmaceuticals, furniture, etc. I really hope so.

    • Sometimes the animations get glitchy…try this:
      Store the train and Otto.
      Go to Krusty Land and back(syncing the game).
      Pull the set out and place it again.
      Hopefully this will help…good luck😁👍.

  8. I guess that I am in the minority, but I love the Valentine’s Mystery Box. Sure, there are a few things about which I don’t care. But for 60 doughnuts, it is worth the shot to me. I just store the things that I don’t want.
    I was able to get 4 character/building combos for 60 doughnuts each. To me, that is an amazing value. The stand alone buildings are fine – I got two of them. So if you add them to my doughnut spend, I still got 4 building/character combos for 90 doughnuts each. Which, in my opinion, is way better than 150 each.
    This is also the reason that I am not buying any character/building combos at the 150 price. I assume they will come back in a mystery box for much less. This also ensures that I actually have things in my mystery boxes.

    • I love the Valentines Day Mystery Box as well but I only have 2 character and building combos (Fiesta Terrace + Jacques + Brendan and the STEM Hotel) and 1 stand alone building which is Le Krusty Burger. I was a bit surprised that EA re-released Brendan and the STEM Hotel after a month at a 90 donut discount (originally cost 150 donuts and the box cost 60 donuts per try). I have been passing on premium items that I think are too pricey in events lately to buy in the first place in hopes of it re-appearing at a rebate, in a mystery box or in a bundle with something else.

  9. I have a silly question… does anyone happen to know the trash to donut reward ratio? I put out all my trash from the rocket I’ve collected and had Lisa go to town.. it seemed to take quite a bit to get even 1 donut for all the effort collecting. On the other had, in my other game, trash was collected and I got 3 donuts in what seemed like a relatively short time. are the donut rewards totally random for this task? Just thought it was funny.. I’m all about free donuts.. I was just curious if there were any Addicts who actually COUNTED the trash between donut rewards. LOL!

    • I have SOOOO much of the Rocket Junk I’m my inventory. So much that it would take me a very long time to let Lisa and Homer at them. I’m not sure its worth the bonuts. (not hat I’m complaining about free bonuts 🙂 ) I really wish they would allow a sell off. Or at least an In-Game TRASH BIN to throw away what you dont want. I’m not at my limit yet, but taking into consideration how long i have been playing, I afraid i am approaching said limit. Fingers crossed 😉

  10. I know 60 donuts is a lot for a building, but maybe if everyone who doesn’t already have it would go to Krustyland and buy the Tunnel of Love ride, EA would see we are desperate for more Krustyland content. I miss the days when every event would come with a new Krustyland ride as a prize.
    What I’d really love is a summer Krustyland Mini-Event. Prizes/premiums include: Tina Ballerina, Parent’s Island, Corporal Punishment, Krusty’s LA Traffic Jam, The Change Loser, The Tilt ‘N’ Spew, Itchy and Scratchy as playable characters, and Disgruntled Goat, Uncle Ant, Ku-Klux-Clam, Manic Mailman & Rich Uncle Skeleton mascots!
    Who’s with me?! Krus-ty-land, Krus-ty-land, Krus-ty-land!
    What? No one? Just me? Oh well.

    • YES!!!! A Krustyland mini summer event I love it! That would be an awesome event. You’ve got some great ideas! I still actually go in there frequently to collect tickets and exchange for money, but it is getting old in there. Can one just blow up Krustyland and start fresh in there? I am in serious need of a redo.

    • Considering all the land available there, I’d just like to be able to put some Springfield items over there. All my Efcot and County Fair stuff could find a new home, which would leave me lots more room for regular town items. Also, the Angelica Buttons stuff would be a natural fit in a theme park environment…please EA…let me transfer the kookie stuff over to Krusty Land😩😩😩.

    • Dear readers… This is what is known as “buyers remorse.“ Please keep in mind that EA rarely gives us something amazing on these small holidays… They’re mostly donut grabs. And when they grab your donuts, (which can happen when you’re gambling for something you think you might want), You might end up being upset like this fine reader, here.

      • I would feel more sorry for these people if EA didn’t give people an opportunity to earn an unlimited number of donuts without spending any real money. If you want just one out of 3 items each 60 donuts, then you just must ask yourself is the one item worth 180 donuts? It just like buying mystery boxes, you will paying 6 donuts for cars, bomb shelters, etc. But you also get vans and billboards and 30 donuts for 6 donuts.

    • The items that you didn’t want and that you call a ‘waste of donuts’ might be the same items that other players really do want and would happily spend donuts on.

      Like them or not, you still got premium limited-time items for less than their original price and that is a good deal.

Happy Monday tappers, busy weekend, daughters baby shower and Sunday family dinner, not much time for tapping, well ahead of the calendar, bit bored with this event don’t like the 4 hour grind, as for the land hope EA release some heights land totally maxed out on heights currency and even it up with Springfield land, also to sort out the mountains, all greyed out.

  13. Valentines “nothing to write home about” stuff just dropped in the game. I was hoping I could buy brandine without needing to gamble on a box but that’s not the case.

    It doesn’t seem like there’s anything particularly valuable in this event for sale like the Christmas event had unless it’s gunna drop in act 3 but it doesn’t seem like the event is going in that direction.

  14. I don’t know if this has been posted before, but I discovered 2 cool things you can do in the game. The first one is if you tap the “Don’t Eat Beef ” billboard it switches to “Eat Deer ”
    The second thing is that Moe has a 7 hour task at the KTV . He’s supposed to go and interview for a job as a game show host. All this time I thought only the Wise Guy was the only one who could go there, which is really hard to get him in. Hope it helps. Enjoy and have a great day. 😃😉💞

    • Something even more cool about those 2 things is: The first one with the Meat Billboard has a special animation on it if you have the Programmer Lisa outfit from last year’s Thanksgiving and send her on the 4 hour task which is to “Hack Propaganda”. The second one with KTV is that if you have Mr. Sparkle you can send him on his 8 hour task and he goes to KTV. I hope you found these useful. 🙂

      • I’m more talking about items sold during the Events. And I think the loot box was a great idea. I am able to get items I had to chose not to buy during the Event it was offered. I always want to buy everything, but I budget myself. These loot boxs give me the chance to get those items at a discount. Win-Win. 🙂 I’m not sure what you mean by “give up staple characters”. I just want the room to put my items on. I dont buy in duplicate. I dont spam my Springfield with KEMS or House farming. I create themed areas in my Springfield. Land is gold. And i think EA is seeing that….
