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 Land Act 1 is nearing its final days.  How have you faired with the Act 1 Prize Track?  Crafting?  How’s your Amusement area coming along?

What do you think Act 2 will have in store for us?  Have you checked out the Act 2 tips from yesterday?

How about the rest of your weekend?  Getting ready for summer vacations? Anywhere fun planned?  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. Goodness. I’ve been away for a couple weeks, and from the looks of things, this update was a very bad idea in hindsight. A case of fixing what wasn’t broken. Especially when EA is obviously uninterested in the game’s QA anymore (Quimby outright telling us as much in-game).

    – Group storage likely done specifically for this update has introduced glitches
    – Bringing KL / ISL into Springfield strains item limit even further
    – KL’s / ISL’s big, always-animated buildings strain performance even further

    Most players weren’t using KL anymore, but those few who were, had a lot invested in it. And it wasn’t affecting the rest of the game, at least. In fact it now appears it was beneficial to the game’s performance having it sectioned off of Springfield.

    I guess we’re stuck with it as it is now: KL effectively made an event that will go into storage with everything else when it ends, due to item limits and performance issues that strain our beloved little game that’s gone so far beyond its original expected life. :/

    • At least we get Bort, he will probably be looking for his Bort licence plate. I hope we get one for him.😛
      The land token will be useful too.
      I think the log ride looks pretty too, and fun, I Kind of wish I really could visit my KL in real life, that would be fun 😃🎠🎡🎢
      I’m liking act 2 much more than act 1.

        Same here😊 Will be happy when I get the lag under control, went ahead & disconnected my race track again to help while I store some items.

    87 donuts burning a hole in my pocket! Having bought all the hideaways, I don’t know what to spend them on. Any suggestions?

  4. Help please! I bought the squeaky voiced teen bundle and plopped down building. I already had the teen for a year or more now. For some reason he went into to my storage so I placed him and he disappeared. I scrolled thru the “town hall consensus” and he is nowhere to be found. Any one else got this problem?

      I wondered what was going on when it didn’t ask me to use the skin, & found SVT & Hans Moleman in my inventory. I believe it happened because my characters weren’t on task when I nuked what I hadn’t group stored in KL, it was probably a small glitch. I’d check your inventory again & if he’s not there contact EA. Good luck 😊

  5. E.A. on the chance you are listening to what we want for the game, it would be swell if we could transport across town with items so we don’t have to drag them all over it’s time consuming. Thanks. Oh and bring out the Duff formula one car for the event, perfect time to do it. Ok thanks.

  6. So, finished act 1, but no side quest for collecting foam knives for Donuts?

  7. Has anyone got the SVT attendant bundle yet? Is it just a building and skin? The dialogue implies it’s a ride. I watched the episode, it would be cool if there was some animation with I&S cars. Impatiently awaiting the SIB.

  8. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Just wanted to drop a hello and thanks to Patric and ebron for visiting my town! (KyleB). Hope you enjoy it as much as I do yours😁

    • You have a lot of fun stuff…looking forward to your new designs.

      • Thanks! I feel like I’m constantly redesigning my town, sometimes due to new items (which I enjoy)and other times due to the stupid items limit (which I dont enjoy)! I’m particularly fond of my SH area, aka my “Las Vegas” area, I just wish I had more land available over there. I’m currently in the dilemma of pushing up against the items limit (again!) and wanting to decorate KL the way I would like to, not to mention the fact that there will be a lot more items coming out with this event. Oh well, I guess I will do with it what I can before they cut me off!

  9. Am I the only one who had this weird glitch happen? What happened was the game was functioning as normal except all the craftables were free. Later on when I came back all my progress on the prize track was reset to zero. Did this happen to anyone else? It was really weird.

  10. Does anyone know what the drone dropping grenades (I assume) is about?

    • I believe that is L.T. Smash on his 4 hour task where he stands outside Classified Records and controls the drone which occasionally appears across the screen.
