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…..

Well, The Simpsons are over for this season!  Time to enjoy the summer and await the start of Season 30 in the fall…

Missing your favorite yellow family on TV?  Have no fear, we’re gearing up for a summer of fun in TSTO!  As EA has released the latest content topic and start date.  You can check out that info here.

Of course, there’s still stuff going on in our games right now.  We’re nearing the end of our little Cayman Island Offshore teaser. Thoughts on the teaser?  Did you buy the Cayman Island Banker?

ICYMI…there was an all-new episode of Addicts Live yesterday.  We talked Offshore Banking, the next event, rollback glitch and more.  Be sure to check it out here if you missed it.

How about the rest of your weekend?  Memorial Day Weekend here in the US, and a holiday weekend in the UK, anything fun and exciting going on? Enjoying your Spring? Ready for summer?

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. Preemptively, I am sorry to all if this offends anyone.
    I have been asked why I chose to leave the TSTO “world”.
    I have found that the relationships I have tried to maintain are unfortunately, as with most “social media”, superficial. This and TSTOUK were my outlets to try and connect with actual people.
    I do understand this (TSTOADDICTS) is an open forum, but with the neighbourino inclusion of TSTO, the game invites interactions between the people with whom you play with, with Events requiring you to decide whom you wish to “favour”.
    I could not easily make this choice.
    I also cannot afford the time to maintain these connections. Those words alone I know will invite opinion.
    I do, and close neighbourinos will understand, appreciate all connections I make. I sincerely appreciate the Springtanias you have all created.

  2. Just spent a fortune creating sidewalks and they are now available for 385!!

  3. I do wish the Duff Gardens wouldn’t always have the floating head over it. I no longer tap it because I don’t need any more undeleletable dwarves in my inventory. Just seeing the building would be great, still tap if you need it but not advertising all the time. Like the rail yard, harbour and stonecutters tunnel that all have prizes without having an icon permanently emblazoned on it.
    Rant over – still enjoy the game.

  4. Got past 2 days, my entire town keeps doing the daily quest. Every time I login, all my characters show up in the same quest as completed but I cant assign them new tasks. I collect the money, but when I log back in, they are right back in that quest. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but no luck. Can anyone help me? Need to get it fixed b4 new event today

  5. I had an interesting glitch. Sent most of characters to Buy Milk at the KEM for a Daily Challenge. They went to modern KEM. But when I click on them after collecting $ and XP they stayed stuck in the KEM. I exited (friends or Krustyland) and returned to be able to collect again. A quick way to collect donuts (I did it 4 times). Was only able to exit after storing the KEM. Now, if only they had been on an eight hour task versus one.

  6. Happy Tuesday everyone, hope everyone has a good start to the week and are prepared for the next event tomorrow. TSTO comment: over the last week, I have managed to make some new designs in the game with the downtime and left out some space for the new upcoming items (if they require my town and not Krustyland), I made some designs on the Grand Canals which is now by my Little Italy district in the area (where my Prehistoric area was which is now in the inventory for now), the Buddhist Temple by the mountains and using some of the Chinese and Japanese items with it, and I have finally moved the residential part of my town away from its original spot by the corner of the mountains and ocean but it is next to the mall area so that would have to be moved soon. Non TSTO comment: I have also got Wednesday free all day so I’m prepared to start the event immediately whenever it hits, the weather has been a mixture of sunny and warm days to cloudy and rainy days in England so its obvious that the summer is here already.😆🌧️☀️I have watched all but the finale of Season 29 of the Simpsons and all of Season 18 on the DVD boxset a few weeks ago, I’m not sure on which episodes I should be watching now, what are peoples favourite ones?

  7. A belated Hi to one and all.
    Before this time tomorrow we’ll hopefully have a fun new event on the go
    Happy Tapping

  8. Mystery box blues. 100 net donuts, 6 Lard Lads, 1 lousy billboard. Feel like I may as well start buying bonus increasers straight up. Blech :p

  9. My Wish List:
    I would like to be able to see what my Bonus XP rate is at
    And a list of my decorations with a ‘go to’ feature; ie: ‘do I have a left handed roadster? Where is it?’ 🙂

  10. Not long now, what time do we expect the update to hit ?

  11. How long will the Itchy and Scratchy Event be?

  12. So I’ve been meticulously planning out my monorail to be one continuous line with all of my stations connected but it looks like it may have backfired on me.

    Can someone confirm whether I only get one train per monorail line regardless of how many stations are connected?

    • Yep, that’s correct.

    • Keith1Roon991

      You can have as many trains as stations as long as each station isn’t connected to another i think, I have 4 stations with 3 connected and 1 on one continuous loop. This gives me 2 trains going around springfield

  13. I haven’t been able to sign in all day. I reset my password but it says “an error occurred processing the login. Please retry. “

  14. I’m intrested in the posting a couple days ago from my reading I understand that the TSTO addicts team is now going to receive information in advance about the game, but I was wondering if its only one way or if we the players are in a position to give E.A our ideas, our comments, and complaints, through the feedback on your posts? Thanks.

  15. Wish list:

    The ability to sell all stock per item in one go. Ie all the cars i get out of the Mystery Box that stockpiled in my storage.

    Ability to sell things crafted on a regular basis, such as Lard Lad donuts thing. (Forget the real name, lol)

    EA: hint to make money! For $100usd, buy the ability to auto fill and auto collect on a Kem farm, complete with making all bonut pop ups automatically fall on the 3 bonuts symbol, even outside KEM farming. For that, even $150 usd would be a great deal.

    Extremely excited for the new update. Any idea what time Wednesday the update hits?

    Thanks for all the great work you all do! Saving donuts like crazy since it sounds like such a huge event!!! 😁 Really appreciate the heads up!!!

  16. Dark_R0nin910

    With only the prison bus left to buy for a character, and only about 8 other buildings, I’m almost ready to start the KEM machine up for donuts for events. I’ve got 118-138 cash and exp bonus, I’m ready to get moving

  17. Ydouneedtoknow

    I think Allison’s comment about continuing donut farming for the next event is maybe a hint if something to come. Hate to say it and don’t know if mods will let it through, but is EA ending kem farming or do.multiplier?

  18. Moment of silence for those injured or made the ultimate sacrifice for defending and preserving freedom. 🇺🇸

  19. I have a question if anyone can help. I had my game rolled back from the glitch and my hights buildings have all reset and need all the characters slots unlocking. Most have been fine, but I can’t get above 100 for the furniture shop. Any idea how I unlock them?

  20. Hi all, I’ve just made a house ROI calculator to figure out if it is worth buying another normal house given your multiplier. Characters and premium characters can also be calculated. It can be found at

    • Nice! I sometimes do this math in my head or a spreadsheet when bored. Great to have a calculator that does it all in one place.

    • Bort1q, I did a spreadsheet just for house farm XP and $. I got similar answers to yours, except for a small rounding difference. I’m trying to understand TSTO rounding though it might be a simple ROUND function.

      Can I suggest getting rid of cents and adding commas (every 3 digits) to improve readability of large amounts?! Regards, JohnI

  21. Hi Everybody!!! I hope all my American neighbours are having a great long weekend. I’m so excited for the new update. More than anything else I hope it comes with a way to grind land tiles. 🤞🏻

  22. Hey everybody!! Just wanted to stop by and thank all of my neighbors!! I have been a little MIA due to some personal stuff and I fully expected to have no neighbors when I came back in my game but y’all are still there!! Thanks for sticking around and I’m looking forward to getting back into the game and the upcoming events!!!

  23. With the new event starting on Wednesday, start saving your daily challenges.

  24. I don’t know if someone can tell me what next step I should take. At 1st I thought I’d just live with a broken game,,when I read the fixes. Hoping for a better solution down the road. Then I thought well,, I’d rather lose 3 months than 6 months,,etc…so it took 2 tries to get a rollback to Feb.5. I am so upset right now,,, it’s stupid to get this emotional over a game.. Been playing since 2013,,alot if time invested. Reasoned that I won’t even miss it a few months from now. What really has my blood boiling is she credited me a whole whopping 20 donuts. Now in the time from the rollback date I have bought 3 lotto tickets $10 for Sven Golly & another $20. & I sent the screenshots of the $30 I spent,,not bothering with the lotto tickets. Her last email said basically sorry,but I already credited you 20 donuts. I can see that I’m getting nowhere there. So can someone please tell me what exactly I can do to at least get back what I spent? Thanks…..I can see why CS gets talked about the way they do sometimes!!

    • If you can get a callback option do that as that is the best way to get help if you can get someone in the US. Chat is better than email.
      Keep calling them back until you get someone who can help you. Calmly and politely explain the issue and if they refuse to help, hang up and call back and get someone else. Also ask for your characters and buildings to be replaced if you get someone who can help. Some have had their list prepared of items gained since they glitched and donuts purchased and have gotten them replaced.
      Persistence and politeness are the key to dealing with EA.

      • Thank you so much…I really think they could’ve handled this better! Been playing for 5 years & am actually very upset over this. I’ve spent almost $35 in the time I “lost” & feel I should be reimbursed,,at the very least. Not sure if it’s worth the stress of dealing with the reps!!! Again,thank you for your advice.

        • They definitely could have handled this whole thing better. Just take a deep breath. Prepare to have to call several times. State your case and move on to another if they won’t help. Only you can decide how much energy to devote to this issue. I wish you luck.

  25. I just restarted my Springfield monorail project after binning it for 2 years. What can I say… it’s a whole new world! Loving it now! And the Bonuts!

    • ALL ABOARD!!! Come ride the newly expanded monorail now serving all of Springfield and Heights. Experience what could be the most exhilarating 2 minutes 27 seconds of your life.🚂🚎🚋🚈🚎🚋🚈

    • Justin Henriks

      Yes I like how the monorail has been kept a continued focus in the game with continuous earning of tracks and Bonuts and there have been new stations added such as the Hogwarts/magic themed one most recently, hopefully more to come!

  26. Justin Henriks

    This is probably a really silly question but… is the item limit separate in Krustyland? I presume that there would be a separate item limit in Krustyland than Springfield as it is a completely isolated load screen on your device. If it is a separate item limit then I will be hoping I&S Land is an extension to KL as I will be able to decorate and build without having to store current items. There is also a good amount of available land in KL (due to there being nothing new available there for um… years!).

    • As far as I know, Krustyland is a whole seperate game. I’ve been locked out (over the limit) of placing anything in my Springfield, but could still spend tickets and place items in Krustyland…another reason I’d like to see this event happening there👍😁.

      • Justin Henriks

        Great thanks, that sounds positive, so fingers crossed the event is in KL and we can an opportunity to be a bit more creative during the next event. If it is Springfield we will just need to store sections again!
