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…..

Itchy and Scratchy are finally in Springfield!  As Itchy and Scratchy land has arrived in Springfield, among the fun of a new amusement park is a ton of issues with the event itself.  From lagging and freezing to missing items and just general aggravation.  What are your thoughts on the event?

Donut Day was this past Friday, did you partake in any of the donut offers in game or in real life?  Riley and I made our way to our local Duck Donuts (Riley’s favorite) and enjoyed a couple of warm donuts!

How about the rest of your weekend?  It’s finally June, ready for the summer?  Do anything fun and exciting this weekend?

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. FYI, updated TSTO this afternoon. Since then my iPad 10.5 Pro has rebooted 3 times while in the game.

    Just a question on land tiles.
    I like others, rushed in and nuked KL before buying up all tiles, so now I need 196 land tokens to buy all available land 😭.
    I’m really hoping EA will do something to allow us to buy them again, with either tickets (over 200k of them) or in games cash (0.5bn). Not sure what the in game cash is for nowadays as nearly every new character and building costs donuts – but that’s another issue.
    Relying on the 3-6 tokens per event, I’m never getting there.
    One idea, when we fill our XP give choice of bonuts or token.
    Do you have any feeling for what may happen in the future?

    • Land tokens are very likely here to stay. Everything in Springfield switched over to land tokens awhile ago (last year I believe) and it doesn’t look like they’ll be making the switch back to cash (or even ticket) buy options.

  3. Anyone else also noticed that the quest ‘Recover from a amall heart attack’ isn’t available anymore for the ‘Princess & The Pea Brain pt 5’ – it says that it needs the Krustyland entrance… and that one _is_ placed in my Springfield, but the quest is unavailable…

    • As I am 1 of the the players in the minority group of people who liked KL, I finished all my KL tasks when they were assigned, so I don’t have any pending.
      But I am guessing as the former KL no longer exists, then the task is unable to be completed?
      Though I might be wrong and it might just be an EA glitch.
      Or maybe Krusty the Clown has put a block on it in protest of closing down…

  4. This event is really resource hungry. I bought a new phone a couple of months back, and TSTO didn’t seem to see significant performance improvements. With this event however, the game just slows to a crawl every time I’m trying to clear out my town. Removing Krustyland and dumping everything to the main town is a nice idea in theory, but it’s been a major contributor to the game’s slowdown. EA really needs to optimize the game better, or better yet, come up with an option to disable the money/XP animations which are the real culprits. Much as I’ve enjoyed the game over the last 5 years, if the game continues to run this sluggishly, I’ll probably quit playing before this event ends.

  5. No Bonuts?! I just placed the Nurse’s station, quest changed to unlock Diane.

  6. Completely random question: what is the most replies you have ever gotten for a post about TSTO?

  7. For those having trouble visualizing what you can do with the new KL and race track – here is a little sample.

  8. Pardon me if someone has already asked this… (point me to the post?) How do I find out how many items I have in storage?

    • Step 1, open your storage via the little brown cardboard box icon

      Step 2, start counting

      When you finish counting all your items you will know how many items in storage there are…..

  9. Race track, log ride, roller coaster … going back to KEM farming so I can pick up more pieces. Gone … Krappy KL (by design) … coming soon … greatest theme park… ever.

  10. New gripe. So I had a bunch of doughnuts saved. But I refused to pay 300 for scratchy. So I invested on a couple of boxes and bought sherri and Terri. The twins have a task with penelope that needs the krustyland gate. I sighed, then dug it out of storage. (so my theme park now has two separate gates. Sigh again). But I can’t send the twins or penelope on the task because Krustyland doesn’t exist anymore…
