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…..

I dunno what FOX is thinking, but STILL no new Simpsons this week!  It was supposed to come back Sunday, but I guess they think OJ is a more important Simpson….I don’t. They should be back next week & we should have a fun episode tie-in to go along with it.  So stay tuned next week for info on that!

ICYMI…an all-new Addicts Live Aired yesterday!  We talked 18th Amendment, Bathtub Gin & a few references to Hop Skip & get Naked! Check it out to see what the heck I’m talking about.

Thank goodness Bart Royale is FINALLY finished in Springfield!  Out with the old, in with the new!  Homer vs. the 18th Amendment mini event made it’s debut in our games last week.  What are your thoughts on the new mini event?  Premium items?

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. So many premium characters that do not help in events. The same ones that work the donuts making track, get used. Why did I get a premium character for a decoration. Sorry I know it will do no good to write about it, just seeing if I feel better afterward.

  2. on another note, did anyone notice a odd daily challenge on sunday? for the first time, i saw a exp booster (24 hr.), and springfield heights prizes

  3. just over a week left, i have 20 donuts. i kem 12 every 4 hours, im level 58. could i earn another mystery box?

  4. what is everyone’s donut limit for buying a character?
    the Rich Texan is in my vault for 65 total donuts. I’ve read the SIB post and was just curious where people stand on that.
    thanks kids!

    • I think any character for under 80 donuts is a good deal…I’ve spent lots more along the way. I’d go for it.

    • I agree with ebron. That’s a good price. Plus, he’s a fun character to have in your town.

    I am stuck on Much Ado About Midy at Part 4. Does anyone know how I can make Homer Buy Champagne? It doesn’t show up in my list of Homer tasks under any of his skins. I am so frustrated, help!

  6. I noticed that there are two things missing from this update for St Patrick’s Day, the first is the green rivers which are not around for this update though it has been missing for a few St. Pats day events over the years already but it would of been cool to see them again for this update. The second is Tom O’Flanagan and his Pub, this is the second year in a row that EA have not released Tom and the Pub for the newer players to get and Tom could of helped with the event by earning the drinks. Outside of this, I really like this update and have already got the Canada Crossing and I can’t wait to get H.K. Duff since he appears to be the best prize of this event.

  7. I’m close to being done with Krustyland but I’m going to run out of tickets before I can build the last couple things. I have about 10000 krustyland tickets left and I have the hotel, duff pavilion and tooth chipper left to build.

    I have 5 itchy and scratchy billboards in my krustyland but it only gives me 1 extra ticket event though it increases my percentage.

    My question is when was the last time anything happened in krustyland? I’ve heard people mention it’s been forgotten by ea, and I’ve heard others asking for a krustyland event so I wanted to be up to par Incase one was launched.

    Also am I wasting my time with my 5 itchy and scratchy billboards being in krustyland when they could be in Springfield getting my more percentage? My krustyland percentage is 7% with the billboards and my Springfield percentage is 138% with the billboards.

    • Bonus percent is wasted on Krustyland…pull your billboards into Springfield. I was hoping for more (of anything) in Krustyland, but finally gave up…don’t think EA has any more Krusty love in their hearts☹️.

    • I agree with ebron, dont get stress with Krustyland, and I would move the billboards to Springfield, and take it easy, I just visit Krustyland only when I have to, (daily task that give me donuts), it has been soooo long time since the last they make something there.

      Maybe just maybe a mini event there would be a good option

  8. Isn’t past time to add Patric to the splash page?

  9. 😎Thank goodness for later sunsets😎

  10. Anyone else lost ableilty to use character icon at top left? Also can’t craft Springfield Hieghts items. Railyard also not able to craft.

    I read somewhere that one of the recent updates increased the number of decorations allowed to 10,300

    • It’s up to 10,700…I reached it last week and was told I couldn’t place anything else without removing something. Luckily, the Royale event was ending, so I stored most of it and have a couple hundred pieces to play with again.

  12. Always been a favourite of mine..Movie Canadian Bacon.
    Partially because I love John Candy and t’s hilarious
    The Canadians are coming 🙂

  13. 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?

    • iirc, that tasks requires the original Kwik-e-mart, which is easy to accidentally store. Check your inventory for a solitary KEM that can’t be sold.

      • Long ago I made sure to keep the original separated and in a special spot so I’d never make the mistake of mixing them up. (I did double check and the building is still there.) Darn, so I guess having the right building isn’t my issue, which I suppose leaves this is being a bug. Thanks DrTyler for your help, I appreciate it.
