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?

We’re moving into week 2+ of Springfield Jobs Act 2, how are you faring with the prize track?  I completed it and unlocked Nigel yesterday, so now it’s just crafting currency away! Are you having the same success?

ICYMI, Addicts Live was all new yesterday.  We talked a little Springfield Jobs and a lot Rollback Bug.  Check it out if you haven’t already, you can watch/listen here.

How about the rest of your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting going on? It was the first warm Saturday here in ages, so we took advantage and did loads of Spring Cleanup in our Yard.  Feels good to have a few more things crossed off our list, especially when it means enjoying the sunshine and fresh air!

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!

  3. I encountered a very weird graphical glitch today. Somehow the game turned some of my trees into hairy elephants. Not sure how that happened.

    • Digital glitches like that are pretty common after your town begins to get a little larger. They can be pretty funny at times…I once had a fence row turn into an entire line of Burns, as a vampire…it looked like a Halloween chorus line😆.

      • I’ve gotten weird glitches before, but this one was extra weird lol. They looked like Mammoths but weren’t the same animation as the Mammoth display that was part of the caveman event a while back. I was kind of hoping it was some kind of glitch that accidentally displayed something we’ll get in the next event lol.

    • I just had rather large Apu heads that replaced the lights from the spotlights that we got during the music event, complete with the heads going back and forth. Usually the graphical glitches are small and obviously glitches…these looked like some sort of tappable Easter egg…like I had to tap the Apu heads or something. And before they disappeared, they started slowly floating up the screen, and then ZOOM! Sped off and gone.

      I recorded it, may have to share that one.

    This isn’t a huge problem for me. I’m just curious as to whether anyone has any insight or similar experience. A couple weeks ago I was in the middle of placing some frozen/ice ground. And it stopped and the button for it disappeared. What I had been placing stayed. But the option literally disappeared in the middle of the action. Was there some sort of limit to how much frozen ground I can have? I don’t want to delete what I have because I want to keep it. But, I did try searching it on here but I may have been searching with the wrong keywords or something. Has anyone had or heard of this? Like I said, it’s not really a problem. At least I didn’t lose the ability to place regular roads..lol. I have no other issues at all. I’m not interested in calling EA. Compared with all the rollback issues (I’m so sorry everyone!), this is a non issue. Just wondering. Thanks!

    • I think the ice was a prize (crafting?) during Christmas. So there is a limit, like tiles for the boardwalk.

      Like

    • The ice tiles are really more like Squiport tiles than road tiles. Each tile was a prize and they act like decorations, rather than road tiles. Where the road tiles(and water, dirt, cobblestones) are unlimited after being unlocked…when you’re out of ice tiles, there are no more and the option disappears from the list. If you store one, you will see it back in the list, just like boardwalk tiles.😁

  7. 4 weeks of kem farming and about 50 million spent on rat trucks i am now on level 911, have 520 donuts save and still have 27 million in the bank, got fed up with the kem farming but still have the collider on, when I hit 30 million i will buy rat trucks until I hit level 939 and then I will be done with farming for a while and get currency up to 100 mil again, now to decide what to spend my farmed donuts on 😁😀

    Like

    • How did you get to 100 million initially? I KEM farm so my cash rarely grows. I always hover between 1-2 million. I’m at a point where I get donuts every 5 days or so enough to get a character / building (150 donuts or so) and at 1-2 million just purchase enough land to make sure I can place things (but not well). It seems like a never ending grind where I’m not getting anywhere cash wise (or donut wise – as far as stockpiling), but my % slowly increases like 10% a month, and I am able to get occasional buildings and characters. I have never played with a lot of cash, and wonder what that must be like, to have so much in game cash.

      • I have all the land that in game cash can buy, have about 45 land squares that need tokens to buy, so will have to wait for ea to release more tokens, at 344% i can earn about 10 million a week, it takes time to save, mostly i just save and wait till an event i like comes up and then spend.

      • If you work on increasing your bonus by 50% (or more) per month instead of 10%, you will see a huge difference. Investing in mystery boxes will help a lot. Unless you can increase your XP%, your progress will continue to be slow and your cash intake won’t really change. Take a couple months and just focus on XP items…I think you’ll be amazed at what a difference it makes.😁.

          • That’s a great return…anytime you can get a % for under 20 donuts it’s a bargain. Not to mention, the Mayflower is really cool to have at your Squidport 😎👍😎.

    • We don’t endorse hacked (stolen) donuts. There are enough ways to earn them without committing theft through hacking.

    • Brian my dear, you must be new here, cheats, spoilers and politics are off limits. On occasion however, there have been glitches in player favor that have been revealed here, but those are rare. You are at the wrong site for cheats and hacking.

    • I really think that if your friend has one town, and lots of time to kill, it is VERY easy to level up. Even when starting, KEM farming is effective because the XP needed to level up is so low (I don’t KEM farm, but tried it in an anonymous town just to experiment). Sending people on 1 hour tasks generates income quickly.
      But what your friend should know is that the journey is the game. If you could get it all in one day, it wouldn’t be fun. Taking it slow is the joy of the game. It makes every new item/building/character special. When you get a new character every day, you can’t possibly enjoy each one. Imagine getting a new car every day. Or a new house. You couldn’t possibly explore and enjoy each one to the fullest.

        Patric might have to copy your post when the KEM farming discussions get rowdy.

        I’ll admit that I don’t focus on the new additions the way I did when I first started playing. This is partially because of how I use the Ajax Steel Mill to simplify managing my characters. However, every once and I while I see a character wandering (because I fell asleep before assigning them all to a four hour cycle) and I choose to send the character on one of their visual tasks to remind myself of what silliness they get up to.

  13. Here is what I would like to see….an Unevent. A three week town building unevent. Log in once a day and recieve a unique town building item…..such as….. a pedestrian bridge that goes over roads; a new type of ground (sand so we can expand the beaches would be great); land tokens; a weather switch; a day/night switch…..
    The unevent would have no grind. Nothing to send people to do. No things to tap. Just three weeks to focus on design and town beautification. Anyone else up for that?

    • No argument here. Here’s my current struggle, I want my characters to visit my attractions but they only walk on roads unless forced otherwise leaving tasks. The roads are limited, wide and don’t curve. They are hard to make attractive in parks. I appreciate any links people found to get around this.

      Like

      • Yes! I would love some curved sections for roads and paths; as well as roads that are half the current width. Since cars don’t go on roads, I don’t see how that would be a problem.

        I would also really like more ocean water. My shoreline is sooo crowded.

        And I would love pieces that are 1/2 water and 1/2 land on a diagonal, so that you can create more shapes with the water.

  14. So I just noticed something interesting the other day… Back in Valentines Day I got Mona from the mystery box and did her quest line to its completion, but for whatever reason she doesn’t have a task where she sits with Abe feeding the birds? She seems to have everything else, but not this 8 hour task. Is there a specific bench or something she needs?
