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 back this week with an all-new episode!  What do you think will happen in this week’s episode?

Act 2 of The Springfield Jobs hit this past Friday, what’s your take on Act 2 so far?  Any design plans for all the England stuff?

How’d you fare with Act 1?  Collect all the prizes?  Work out your Italian designs?

How about the rest of your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting going on?

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 most of us have Guy Incognito as an NPC, Has anyone bought the Nag and Weasel and gotten the full-playable character? Isn’t it a bit odd to have two of the same character in the game? I think it”s pretty silly. Does it upgrade the NPC to full-playable character? That would be almost worth it.

  2. Anyone else notice that the religious folks (pope, reverends) get something to ride around on town (Pope-mobile, golf cart, train)?

  3. Silly question about Bloodmobiles. I know each one earns lots of XP (13,200, I think) – but where is that shown in the store? All I see is that it improves your rating in a category. How would I know in advance that each one earns so much XP? (Not including Googling it, of course.)

    • That’s never indicated in the store… never has been. If you didn’t use Google or a site like this it would be through trial and error only.

      • Well, that certainly explains why I can’t find it! 😉 I just assumed it was listed somewhere obvious, and I was the only one who couldn’t find it. Thanks for the clarification!

  4. Is there much chance we’ll eventually be able to sell excess monorail tracks. I have far too many, could do with a clear out.

  5. Logged into the interweb today and was overwhelmed with articles blasting the Simpsons over Apu and their response to the criticism in Sunday’s show. Don’t know if this is the appropriate place to discuss it, but the articles really cheesed me off. The Simpsons have a long history of skewing everyone, and I’m fine with that. What I’m sick of is people who spend their lives looking for new ways to be offended.

    • I dunno…if The Simpsons had a black sharecropper eating watermelon all day and singing spirituals, I think you’de see the same kind of outcry…justifiably so. At one time that stereotype was also considered funny, but not anymore. Perhaps the Apu stereotype has also overstayed it’s welcome? Thirty years is a long time…

    Sorry folks – not sure what happened yesterday but trying again today…

    Because the Internet is so slow down here and has such a looooooong way to go to from the bottom of Africa I usually post this on a Saturday afternoon so that is reaches Alissa and co in time for the Open Thread on Sunday. But this time instead of turning left and swimming up the coast east coast of Africa it turned right and headed for Antartica where I got some fabulous responses from some lovely penguins! 😄

    Just kidding – those penguins were actually quite harsh just cos there wasn’t any snow in my pics! Between my poor old iPad and the temperamental internet my post seems to have got lost. In the post 😄 Waited for the usual for the ‘your comment is awaiting moderation’ to appear and then continued with the rest of my Sunday night routine so I’m not sure what happened but I blame (aliens) solar (aliens) flares! (aliens). Either that or it was Harvey again! So now you can all sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of your week… 😄

    So a lazy week of leave was spent reading and reading and…reading! One of the best ways to spend a holiday as far as I’m concerned. This weekend was Graduation weekend for Rhodes University here (my main alma mater) so I pretty much avoided the whole thing by going to see the Wrinklies again! 😄 There were a lot of very smartly dressed people here to collect their receipts (also known as a degree) so they could prove to their proud moms and dads that they didn’t just spend all their time drinking! It’s great fun but I did it more than enough as I used to be in the university choir so had to sing at each and every ceremony for 6 years plus attended a few before that of my own. So instead I had a lovely lunch with the folks and got a beautiful anthurium (at least that’s what I think it is ☺️) that I divided today into 6 pots! Love how abundant nature is 😄 Repotted some of my ficus cuttings into bigger plants because I want to start moving some indoors – my new place has fairly wide windowsills that are just begging for plants 🌿🌱🌾🌲🌿

    Act 2 is progressing well and I like the new buildings etc that have been offered so far. However, after all my complaining about getting so few crooks each day to drop off with neighbours, today I have received….(drum roll)… 0. Not one. Zero. Zip. Nada. Naught. So apologies to those neighbours who dropped off some in my SF because it might take a bit of time for me to pay you back 😄 But apart from that (& not enough land tokens!) it’s fun and got great buildings so I’m happy 😄

    Hope everyone has a great week.

    Anyway, time for a shower…

  7. Got hit with another rollback incident last night… Still have my Phase 2 progress but am now unable to craft Phase 2 items because it thinks I’m still in Phase 1. I’d make a second Phase 1 land token if I thought it was worth the risk… Come on EA, this isn’t fun!

    • I have the same issue. I just got hit by it today.

    • So the question is, will EA put the resources forward to fix the Rollback problems or allow them to grow and eventually overwhelm a critical mass of users such that this game dies from neglect? I’m now more interested in how the Rollback plays out than in the game itself. I got hit by the Rollback in the middle of Act 1 of this event. Like nbb359, it then stopped allowing me to craft Act 2 items even though I’ve already crafted some. Now it says I’m still in Act 1 even as I continue to build up points in Act 2. On top of that are all the strange partially undone things that the Rollback has produced, including no longer being able to earn monorail track and doughnuts. Seeing how completely screwed up their programming becomes is now the only reason to play. EA’s pathetic performance and response is astonishing.

      Like

      • I had my game rolled back the other day in an attempt to fix the locked crafting glitch and it didn’t work. Now EA are referring it to their specialists just like the main rollback glitch which probably means nothing will be done.

      • I saw your post about El Chemistri on the Turbo Tappin’ thread and I’ll offer a suggestion for how to make it more interesting without having to rely on decorating it.

        El Chemistri has a great animation; the doors open and close and the windows light up in cool colors. If you have Jay (he was a limited release character from 2016) he has a 12 hour task there – Taste Test Tube Tahini Tofu. But Wise Guy could animate it too.

        Asia de Cuba looks good next to El Chemistri, especially when it’s animated. It has a very cool animation – the whole building is lighted up in a warm yellow tone. Legs and Louie each have a 3 hour task there – Conduct Private Business in Public.

        I hope this helps.

      Your designs are fantastic! Really enjoyed flicking through your album and getting some ideas for my Springfield. Now that I have used all of my land, I am taking the opportunity to remove unnecessary buildings and re-design areas a bit more like you have. Your use of fountains and plants to form luxurious gardens is probably my favourite aspect of your Springfield. Hopefully you are able to keep sharing new ideas like this in the future – thanks for sharing!

  9. The Gill deal “about time travel and Jack the ripper” had me hoping EA had fixed the glitch. No joy.
    Such great new content BUT I am unwilling to risk buying things with my donuts that I might lose IF they do a rollback not too mention spending more real cash as my railyard wont make donuts.

    I NEVER had problems with my game till I spent REAL world $money$ for the donut/character deal. Now my railyard not only is unable to produce donuts with constant grinding but “says it will reset on Tuesday” but lies! Not too mention the left character button is broke, my friends level, irs radius, redwood tree and money pile that I worked so long and hard on are back to level 1.
    No next new EA tech IT IS NOT MY DEVISE as I play the same game on a kindle And my phone.
    It appears they have a virus worming its way thru their servers corupting accounts while everyone runs in circles.

    • Two questions…Are you tapping the Nightmare pile and then choosing Shauna from the drop-down list? Or…Is there a quest for Shauna that is still showing in the task list on the left? If she hasn’t finished the quest, she won’t show up at the Pile and the Pile is the only way to send her on this job. Her costume task won’t show up when you just tap her.

  12. Finally have my monorail in a full loop! mainly around the outside of town, though it had to wind through a couple of streets.

    Tracks didn’t meet up at first. Tried a few things. Finally saw Patric’s post on the issue. Moved a tunnel along a bit & voilà.
    Now the long task of replacing all the little pieces with the longer pieces.

    I’ve only been playing for a year, so forgive my bringing up a topic I’m sure people are bored to death of…but is there any hope of getting someone like Tress MacNeille in the game?

    I started playing the Family Guy game later last year, & was amazed how many characters are voiced. Even the characters from Rocky!

    Soo few TSTO women have a voice (nearly crapped my pants when the Wiccans spoke). Tress would give a voice to so many of them.

    Nana Sophie got me thinking about it…

    ‘Idiota!’ 😀
