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 winding down the final days of the Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three) mini-event.  Have you finished the prize track and questline?  Ready for what’s next?  What do you think we’ll see next?

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

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. Cube signing off.
    I’m sorry to ALL my neighbourinos.
    (I did see your comment here Kitty. Thank you)
    After nearly five years I have stopped.
    If circumstances change with my life, I may be back, but I cannot see this for the foreseeable future.
    I have truly appreciated all whom have commented with me, complemented me and commiserated.
    Thanks to all whom have kept me as their friends through my challenging times.
    I wish all the TSTO community, the forums and followings I have been a part of, the absolute best.
    For now.
    Good bye.

      Best of luck to you neighbor…I hope your circumstances turn around for you and we see you again

    • Hi cube,

      I’m glad to see your message here to know that you’re ‘okay’ but also sad to read that things sound like they’re not going well. 😢

      I have enjoyed commenting on here with you too and visiting your Springfield town.

      I will send you positive thoughts and wishes and I hope things get better for you.

      I hope to see you commenting again soon, and I hope to see you in Cube land again one day.

      More importantly though, I hope you are okay and please know things always do get better.
      Wishing you all the best. 🌟🌟🌟

  2. I still love Krustyland, so why doesn’t Krustyland love me back?…….💜X

  3. Does anybody else randomly have all their buildings/decorations animate even when not in use? it happens to me randomly sometimes!

    Also, is anybody else just not bothering with this mini-event at all? Prizes just don’t seem worth the effort to me…

    • Yes, animation come on randomly for me, too, but it is usually restricted to the buildings visible on the screen when it starts. Sort of like all the buildings in the tap radius.

  4. Dear EA (I know this isn’t EA, but I digress) – why do buildings with a longer than 24 hour income collection time STILL HAVE THE OPTION TO RUSH WITH DONUTS??? I live in constant fear that a couple wayward taps are going to result in spending donuts for a paltry sum of in game cash. Yes, I have confirm donut spending turned on. Yes, I’m irrational. Yes, you can continue on with your day. Thanks for reading.

  5. Finished the mini-event a few days ago, and was just thinking about what I’d like to see introduced in the next few months with a summer-time theme.
    Wouldn’t it be nice to get some picnic tables sometime this summer, with some of our Springfielders having a “picnic task”? Can think of bunches of places to put them. Also, still hoping for an adult friendly yard swing (a-frame type) and maybe a BBQ grill. And more potted plants/trees that can actually go on Squidport…there’s only so many salmon colored pots you can use without it looking wierd.

    • Maybe hide the pots behind something else, so only the trees show?
      Anyway, I have been hoping for a “summer holiday” themed event for a while, but I was more thinking of beach- and water-related stuff. Beach towels, beach balls, sandcastles, all kinds of boats and floating devices… But the picnic/barbecue stuff would go great with this as well.

    Think there should be a bug event, plenty going around EAkkkk

  7. Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone else has had any neighbours disappear from their friends list? I have had neighbours disappear. And 2 of my neighbours are currently on my friends list but they’re on the bottom of the list (after you click on the hand shake) in the section that says ‘origin friends not in game’ and I’m unable to visit them 😕. Maybe there is a glitch? 🐱🌸🌟 I hope it is fixed soon.

    • Could be they’re having problems with the log-in glitch, and that has changed their status (temporarily) with the game?

      • Hi Ebron,

        That’s a good point, i’m currently unable to log in at all at the moment. 🙁

  8. Has anyone else had big payouts from the space shuttle. For the last week I have gotten a % topiary 2x a day. Strange but thought I would share in case others dont always play. Sure beats debris. Have also been getting more donuts then usual for visiting friends. Thought I would share about my lucky streak.

    • Don’t know if is a temporary oversight by EA or not, but I launched mine as soon as I read your post. I’ve never gotten anything but debris. Fingers crossed, unexploded bomb.

  9. Anyone else’s game still stuck on “Much ado about Mindy pt 4” – make homer buy champagne? It has been this way since the last time Mindy was offered for valentines and I picked her up. It is very annoying, I’d love to be able to clear it from my task bar.

    • Dark_R0nin910

      I’ve heard its a problem, but i don’t know the details

    • Yes! I went to EA’s website today since I’ve got some downtime in my game and tried the suggestions of storing all KEMs, Madam Chao’s etc also cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled – to no avail.. I’m thinking it requires contacting EA, unless anyone else has managed to solve the issue?

      • In a way I’m glad I’m not alone. I to also tried all that to no avail. I guess it isn’t gonna resolve itself without divine intervention.

        • It’s a programming problem…happens when she was bought from the vault. Same issue with Mona, if bought outside of her normal release, an 8hr task with grandpa is unavailable. Been an issue for quite a while, so it’s not like Ea isn’t aware…they just don’t seem inclined to fix it.

          • Thanks all for the info, I wish there was some light at the end of the tunnel for this.

            Really EA? Really?!

    Sorry, once I got the idea i couldn’t resist

    • DSNecromorphUSS

      I love this idea, I’m just glad that Dolph is keeping his magazines out of the public eye.

  11. Since we don’t know when the next event will start, I’m starting to save my daily challenges. When I get to 3 days worth (if nothing has started by then), I’ll start completing the oldest one each day. That way, I should be able to maintain a 3 challenge head-start for the new event.👍😁

    So this just happened to me, it says that there is an error in processing my login. I’ve changed my password so it’s not that. Im sure this had happened to others so is there anyone who can help me?

    • Seems to be going around. Fortunately, for me this was temporary. After a couple of tries, I got in again, but I also heard of people who had this for days. I guess the only “help” I can offer is to tell you to keep trying, but also contact EA help desk with the problem.

    • having same problem

    • Jeffry C Spaulding

      I am having the same sign-in issue that began this morning. Making me sign in then doesn’t accept my password. Tried resetting my password, it was accepted, but still says I’m using the wrong password. VERY frustrating!

  13. Hi all. I hope the next full event is a good one. The game has been kind of boring since the Christmas event ended.
