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…..

Happy Command Day Tappers! (March 4th…get it? haha…)

Still no new Simpsons this week…this is the last weekend (thank goodness!) until they return!

We’re in the final countdown of Bart Royale (another thank goodness moment!), with the event ending Wednesday.  How have you fared with Act 3?  Thoughts on the event in general?

And finally, 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. Why can’t we buy land for cash .?….?


  2. I wanted to get back to finishing Mindy’s quest line but something is wrong. I am at the part where Homer is supposed to go “buy champagne”, it takes me to Homer but the job isn’t anywhere on his list. Am I missing a building for him to do his action at or do I need another person free for a duo job? Or is this a glitch caused by the mini event?


  3. Just a general question…
    What is the in-game currency good for now that land is purchased by tokens? You can’t use the green bucks buy tokens, you can’t use them to buy donuts, most of what you can buy is inexpensive or so huge (space-wise) that it doesn’t fit. I’d buy more decorations (trees, etc.) but I get limit warnings.
    EA needs to sort this issue out.


    • I still have a load of land that I haven’t bought that can be purchased with currency…but, like you, am seeing a regular “You have 10050 buildings and decorations” warning. Yes…it makes for some pretty funny system anomalies…but it is worth it. FIX YOUR CODE EA!!!!!!!

    1: daily challenges paying out heights currency, am maxed out and need more land.
    2: railyard stuck on metal or any of the currency for days on end and not able to use the maxed out glass, plastic.
    3: mountains greyed out in areas am developing, looks terrible and messy programing, give me bright colored mountains.
    4: dialogue boxes popping up in front of animated decorations, for example, hellfish monument when tapped.
    5: multiple character tasks, stonecutter, Moe’s, a send all to ect, or tap a building and every character associated with that building to do a task there.
    6: premium costume, stop changing to the default costume


  5. So a couple things:
    1. How do i make my train go through the mountain?

    2. What is this tiny disappearing elf I’ve seen in random places? Christmas leftovers?


    • Keith1roon991

      You need the tunnel to go through the mountain, elf was a Christmas glass box when tapped the elf escapes, still trying to find mine


  6. Is there another bracket challenge on the horizon?


  7. My Wendell Borton and Erik will not go on 60min. tasks through Job Manager at Office of Unemployment. No biggie to just manually send them. It’s that I’ve been wondering if I have missed something along their quest lines at one point or another? Nothing is hi-lighted in either of their jobs lists and no tasks for them in the Bad Book. Some glitch possibly?


  8. OK, I have a confession to make.. I set my iPad alarm to go off every 4 hours. *hangs head down in shame*.. Yes I am THAT player. LOL But I have to say, this event hasn’t been too exciting, so if I’ve forgotten my 4 hour alarm, I wasn’t too upset. I’m trying to think of TSTO events that were really fun for me.. I think the airport one was really neat There were trivia facts in it. I also liked the campfire spooky stories events with zombies. It has to be tough to come up with new stuff. Someone mentioned adding Krustyland in an event. That was be awesome! Happy Tapping!

    • I sometimes set an alarm to go off every 4 hours during events if I don’t have the final prize but I also sometimes forget to log in every 4 hours which can ruin the 3-5 log ins a day. I am focusing on saving the crafting currency and mainly buy the house frames, trenches and walls available since the event doesn’t end until Wednesday afternoon (2pm GMT) for me and I already got Water Baron Burns and his Mansion.
      Usually the first major events of the year are really awesome with 2017 being Around the World ( or Destination Springfield), 2016 being the Casino event and 2015 being the first Superheroes event.
      The first half of this event has been really cool (especially some of the craftables and prizes) but when Act 3 hit I was already bored of it not because of all the skins but the 6 week long event with the 4 hour cycle involved; at least during the recent Christmas event it was only 4 weeks, 2 acts and no 4 hour cycle (unless you count the battles in Act 2).


    • On iOS you can access the timer via the swipe-up menu. Mine is set to 3:55 with the Sci-Fi alarm tone 🙂 Same procedure every 4h (or 3:55 respectively): tap characters, harvest house farm, finish KEM, build new ones, set timer, then look for the rest (mini games etc.)


  9. Does anyone accidentally tap on Buddha frequently because of how big and exactly-the-same-color-of-yellow-that-the-task-completed-thumbs-up-hands are?

  10. I’m glad this event is nearly over. I think it’s the least interesting one since I started playing in 2013.

  11. Wish list, wish list!

    Totally loving the new boxes to get a chance at a random character, for so cheap. Have gotten new buildings, otherwise would’ve passed on! Loving EA is making it easier to get new characters so fast. Am a completionist after all, LOL

    Would love a permanent storage box that we could just stick stuff into, that would give you the xp points and money on a daily tally, without having to keep the items in the game. Would love to decorate differently but need the mass amount of houses to generate income to farm. Looked at my character inventory and at this rate it will take about 3 years to get the rest of the characters, and skins, lol.

    Appreciate the upped ability to get characters and everything the EA team is doing behind the scenes. Totally disagree with venting on EA. It IS a free game and it has been around a long time. They’ve gotten quite diverse with their theme ideas. It would be hard to make everybody happy, every single event! One of the best games out there, they set the bar high. I know. Have tried to download other games and gave up because TSTO is just so much better.

    Changes I would like to see though, are little things that make decorating easier. Being able to put the houses all out in one space with a full fill on one item with one tap would be heavenly. Getting rid of some items that will never get xp points, ie rails I am looking at you would be great, but better to go into lost in space storage that just keeps track of what you put in, even if we do not have access to it, to just keep our income and xp points coming while still getting items out of our game. Also, a side bar where we could play past events… please EA just give access to your files. Totally want to play the Mayan event!

    LOVING the quick tap of whatever we need to gather too, instead of always having to hunt. Really would appreciate that coming sooner or right off the bat, preferably. Makes the events way more fun and less tedious. Otherwise, thanks and looking forward to the next event! Thank you addicts too, for hosting this site. Makes the game far better. Hope EA appreciates you as much as we do!


    • I agree with you about being able to play past events – that would rock.


    • Wow I liked all of your comment I don’t get why the complaying about events it is free. I don’t know how long I have been playing I started out when they had homer the barbarian long time. But if I did not like playing the game I would not still be here

      And I am sure with out this site I would not of understood the game and I would of quit this site is the best. Thanks Alissa


  12. I don’t know if this is symptomatic of the current sub-par event or if it’s just me but I feel like I haven’t had any neighboreeno visits in at least a month.

    Anyone else notice the same?
