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 FINALLY back this week with an all new episode!  And we got an episode tie-in as well!  What do you think will happen in this week’s episode?

Homer vs. the 18th Amendment mini event leaves our games this week.  How did you fare with the prize track?

This past week also saw a teaser hit our games for the next major event.  The Italian Job looks like it’ll land in Springfield this week…what do you think it’ll bring?

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. Noticing that the in game cash and XP no longer “flies” across screen to collection points but simply disappears. Kinda neat as at times I would move to NE corner of town to observe totals rising unobstructed.

  2. Hi there,

    I’ve had a few characters and buildings in my store now for a VERY long time, and they stay there, because I’m always tempted by new items. If I were to invest in these, or plan out the order in which they were purchased, how would you rank them?

    They are as follows:

    Krustylu Studios
    Springfield Coliseum
    Powell Motors
    Springfield Gorge
    Rancho Relaxo
    Rocket Car
    Apu’s Apartment
    Captain Bob

    Also, is the Springfield Heights Opera House worth it? Does it add to % bonus? Or Gone Fission?

    Also, Little Lisa’s Recycling Plant – what is the significance of this now that the event is over? What is the use of the blueprints it generates?

    Like

    • In my opinion:
      1) Krustylu Studios with Sideshow Mel
      2) Springfield Coliseum with Drederick Tatum
      3) Apu’s Apartment with Manjula
      4) Powell Motors with Herb
      5) Rocket Car with Chester
      6) Rancho Relaxo with Don Vittorio
      7) Springfield Gorge with Daredevil Bart skin
      8) Captain Bob [but don’t have him yet, so maybe he is better than I expect]

      No, the Opera House and Gone Fission don’t add bonus %. They only increase your REV if you’re still below 2 billion REV.

      Blueprints from Lisa Recycling help you get to 25,000 faster and therefore get 5 donuts faster. That’s it.

(didn’t put two and two together, is more like it) Is that a good investment then if I am constantly working on the Rail Yard / Monorail to earn the donuts? Should I get that first before everything else? Right now I currently check in at least 3-5 times a day.

          • For us long time KEM farmers, it’s not a big deal. But for someone new, it is quite a donut deficit:

            It only generates 450 blueprints every 4 hours.

            If you tap 3 times a day, you’ll earn 1,350 blueprints a day, and five donuts from the plant every 19th day (18.5 days).
            If you tap 4 times a day, you’ll earn 1,800 blueprints a day, and five donuts from the plant every 14th day (13.9 days).
            If you tap 5 times a day, you’ll earn 2,250 blueprints a day, and five donuts from the plant every 12th day (11.1 days).

            If it’s still 200 donuts for the plant, it would take you:
            740 days (over 2 years) to recoup the cost if you tap 3 times a day
            556 days (over 1.5 years) to recoup the cost if you tap 4 times a day
            444 days (over 1.2 years) to recoup the cost if you tap 5 times a day

            It would really have to be a good deal to make it worth it, especially for a new player.

            • I am just thinking it not worth it for the donuts. If I was early KEM farmer, I would use the 200 donuts for Mystery Boxes. But I would ignore the monorail altogether unless I really like monorails. Better to use the characters to earn cash (or do daily challenges – I am getting a lot of 6 donuts challenges recently). If I really like monorails I might spend the to by the Lisa’s RP. That would allow me to slowly accumulate rails (and get a few donuts in return) with little effort while I concentrate on building my bonus .

              • Absolutely agree. It is more of an investment for those planning elaborate Monorail routes in their Springfield. I don’t think it’s a good investment at all from the perspective of earning donuts.

                • Now this makes me wonder…. should I be doing the monorail farming for donuts at all? I already have more than I’d ever need and already have a monorail snaking throughout my entire town. Should I just stop for a while and see what putting all of my characters to use would do? And spend my current donuts on mystery boxes? I am up to 355% and get around 6-9 donuts every 4 hours KEM farming. Mystery boxes seem like a waste of a good pile of donuts as they would only produce 1/4? 1/3? of the good stuff ( donuts or % bonus) from say, a 100 donut mystery box spree, right?

                  • 6 donuts Mystery Boxes return 1%bonus per 7.9 donuts (in the long run), best deal after beach hideaway. And if you have spare land, you can place the Lard Lads for cash income.

          • Lisa gets a better return on the eliminator. Do you have a breakdown of hours per donut per character? For example, if I send Lisa to Conquer the Eliminator she earns 420 for 12 hours plus she has a chance for a nuke. I have a bonus of 2845 so that is about 30 *$420 = $12,600. I currently earn 294,740XP per KEM. That is 3.4 KEM per (1-3) donuts.$14,400 *.75 = $10,800. $10,800 * 3.4 = 3$6,720. $36,720/$12,600 = 2.92 12 hours shifts for Lisa.

            Since the bonus doesn’t effect blueprints.

            In that same time period Lisa could earn 35 shifts picking trash. That would be 350 cans. I have task of 774 Blueprints for 60 cans = 4430 blueprints. Which is 5 donuts * 4430/ 24,975 = .89 donuts. So I can either send Lisa to eliminator collecting every 12 hours for 1-3 donuts and maybe a nuke or send Lisa to collect trash every hour over the same time period for .89 donuts.

            If I go to my game once a day, I can collect a 1-3 every 3 days sending to Lisa to the eliminator plus I may get a nuke. If I go my game 6 times a day it would take over six days for 1 donut.

  3. Are there any plans to do anything more with Springfield Heights? It was fun getting to the billion dollar level, but since then it’s just a dead zone. I’ve put most of my buildings in storage mostly because they earn no income and also for space reasons. Getting daily chores involving the building items are annoying too, several times I’ve had to buy things and just put them right in storage just to get a few more useless building materials. I have well over 1,000 smart devices and got a job to craft those after I dismissed the original job. Glad I have the mini game that gives you 2 smart devices every play. I’d hate to try and get rid of over 700 of these just for a daily bonus of 5.

    Question, I’ve been playing now for several years. Recently I’ve picked up a bug in my game where I cannot use the top left icon to tap on a character who has finished a job or is needing something to do. This is aggravating and have not been playing as often. Also my rail yard is telling me to check back next week, where I use to continue and earn bonuts. I have restarted my phone and have contact EA with no results. Any suggestions ?

  6. Overall, I have enjoyed playing this game with a few exceptions. 1) I’m not thrilled with the fact that after a certain point we can’t buy land. 2) the prizes in the mini games don’t change out for new prizes. 3) there is no way to clear a lot of the clutter we don’t want out of our inventory. I also wouldn’t mind a building or button that allows me to collect from all eligible buildings with one tap and another that allows me to send all eligible characters on a single quest. (We have the unemployment building for general quests why can’t we have one for when they want to send my characters on a specific quest). Other than that, I’m very happy with this game.

  10. I keep hoping that one day they are going to put out a way to search for items rather then scrolling and scrolling to find something. The worst is when you’ve scrolled to the end and it only let’s you put one item down and it closes the box so you have to scroll all the way to the end again and again. After playing for almost 5 years I’ve acquired a lot of stuff.

    • I had the same problem when placing multiple houses. One thing I found is that if I scroll to the object I want and immediately close the storage without placing anything (using the cross not the back arrow) then when I open up the storage again it is where I left it and it will continue to return to the same place each time you place an item.

    • Relax. Don’t worry about being behind. Just enjoy the conversations and the quests. In the meanwhile, start KEM farming and house farming and buying 6 donuts Mystery Boxes. Soon enough (9 months or so if you are aggressive) you will have donuts and cash enough to buy the things you missed, the items you want and the land you need. Remember, it is just a game. Maybe start a second game so if an event or mini-event excites you, you can concentrate on that in one game and the other proceeding along.

      Patience is the only answer to your concern.

      Once you get through those tasks and any others they unlock, the game does get more manageable after level 60. You end up with enough in game cash from all of your items and characters to embark on Kwik-E-Mart farming, Again, with patience, that will unlock the ability to acquire any premium items you wish, no real world money spent.

      However, in this game, you are constrained by completing all of the tasks associated with getting through to the end of level 60.

  14. Happy Sunday everyone and a belated St. Patrick’s Day. I have really liked this current mini event in the game and the two other updates with it (episode tie in and teaser), I liked that the mini event did relate to St. Patrick’s Day, if it counts as one I would say that this has been the best St. Pats update in the last few years. I did wish that EA added the green rivers this time but it was still a good update that was easy enough to finish early. I have also started designing a St. Patricks parade area in my town with the new items and some old items from the event while the rest can be placed in other parts of Springfield and I’m already starting to create a little Ireland area with the pub, café and other previous items from updates. 🍻 🍀☘️ 😀
    Non TSTO comment: it has been a snowy St. Patrick’s Day weekend in the UK that some other commenters have already mentioned but this month has had more snow than December, January and February has had so hopefully this will be the last bit of winter this season and start on the spring next and then Easter. ❄️⛄🍫🥚🌈🌼

  26. Got to admit the sparkle has been lost for me lately in the game, feel its mostly habit rather than enjoyment and even if I spent some cash on donuts to buy some premium characters there are still a few I don’t have, but don’t think it would make much difference in my enjoyment in playing, the game needs to go in a different direction with new ways to collect and generate event currency, happy tapping if you can get it.

  28. Hi, MAB *waves*

    Hi, everyone who’s not MAB *waves more*

    We’ve had A Lot of snow here again. Now, I like winter as much as the next man (unless the next man doesn’t like winter, in which case I like it more than the next man), but this is getting silly. It’s springtime on Wednesday and I would quite like it to start feeling like that.

    Happy Sunday 🙂

    • I am looking at a lot of white this weekend as well, along with the usual traffic problems. They even suspended train service in the south-east of the country due to snowdrifts on the tracks.

    So my rain dance continues to be effective but no word yet if I’ve managed to get it to rain in the right areas. The silence suggests not… 😞 Water restrictions have been tightened and people are encouraged to try use less than 60 liters a day. Think I’m quite a bit below that but will see if I can keep it there or less! My garden (such as it is 😊) continues to look nice and green from the light rain but I did have to water some of my pot plants because they are under big trees and so don’t catch much rain. Fortunately I can use rainwater for that and the tank has already replaced what I used!

    I’ve realized that most of my unpacking is done! However, there is still loads of rearranging to do so I’m not yet done! Made a big dent in it today but now I’m too tired (& smelly) to clean my house. Fortunately I’m a relatively tidy boy so it’s not bad at all but had hoped to give it a nice clean for the week. We do have a public holiday on Wednesday so I might just leave it until then 😄

    So I finished the mini event on Sunday or Monday but still no designing being done. Hoping that inspiration will hit but Robin Hobb’s Tawny Man series keeps distracting me 😄

    Hope everyone has a great week.

    Anyway, time for a shower…

      Thx for heads up on public holiday.. totally, completely, utterly forgot about it!

      As for tsto land… another day of futile searching for my gnome. He escaped around August last year and has been missing ever since. Once a month I spend a few hours, hide buildings etc, do the gnome hunt. I can’t even “find Maggie” ever, so yup, no luck finding pesky gnome. *crossing fingers and toes he will appear during next months “great search”*

    • Hi MAB,
      Glad the unpacking is coming to an end…just think of your new house as a mini-Springfield and you’ll be organized in no time 😁.
      Wish I could send you some rain…was planning to travel to Florida tomorrow but storms coming for the next two days, so will now have to postpone till Wednesday. Going to the annual March-Birthday shindig🎉🎂🎉…3 family birthdays within a week…so my presence (as the chef) is mandatory.
      Just downloaded the first Tawney Man book onto my Kindle and iPhone (always looking for a great read) and added the Audible version as well, so I can listen on my trip. Have you read any of Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid books? Fun to find well written fantasy with a sense of humor (most writers seem to take themselves so seriously), so it’s a treat to find an intelligent protagonist who can still be a smart-ass👍😆.

      • How we get on the list stays between the listed and MAB. MAB is quite demanding. Needless to say, if you give in and get added to the list, you will probably end up asking yourself was it worth it. I know I ask myself that question every time the list is posted on Sunday.

    • Do you have more than one game? Does the bug extend to it? If not, you might want to start another game just as a backup/test confirmation that it may be your device.
