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 2 ends this upcoming week past week. ICYMI you can check out some tips for prepping for Act 3 here.  What are your thoughts on Act 2? How are you doing with the prize track?  Ready for what Act 3 has in store?

How about the rest of your weekend?  Getting ready for 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. Hello all! I was out of the country for two weeks and missed out on Part 2 of the event, which was OK, but when I came back yesterday I was really hoping that EA had the lag issue fixed but it seems worse than ever! I do not have the race track connected and I do not have the new log ride connected. Is there something I am missing that I can do? I can barely drag through my town to collect money and trying to place items in my town is nearly impossible. Is anyone else still experiencing this?

  2. HELP! I can’t find my Lincoln Memorial.
    Case 1) I don’t have one already. I’ve checked the Store, in the large “Decorations” section (at the far left), as well as in the smaller “Miscellany” section. No such luck. Which leads me to Case 2.
    2) I already have one, and it’s in my Inventory. I’ve looked in my Inventory, in the same two sections as above. No luck. Which leads me to Case 3.
    3) I already have one, and it’s in my town. Problem: can’t find it! I’ve searched and searched. For those who DO have one in their towns, is it the “patio table” icon in the show/hide menu that controls its display? I’ve tried turning off all but that, but still no luck.
    Any hints, suggestions – this is obviously a specific example of a general problem: finding things in our towns, inventories, and store!

    • Try looking through the whole inventory, not the sections.

      • I tried that. Does anyone else have one in their inventory, and if so, what category is it kept under? I’ve been through my whole Inventory, and the individual parts. But if it’s in my town, you’d think it’d be easy to find! Weird.

  3. I was reading through this week’s Parade magazine, and I saw under ‘Books We Love’ one called “Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets, and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for the Simpsons” by longtime Simpsons writer Mike Reiss. Looks like a fun book and a great gift for any TSTO addict! Just wanted to share! 🙂

  4. Why is Springfield Observatory in the Vault if there’s no discount?

    Has anyone else noticed that the parkland visitors we tap to get rid if has a red shirt and is the only one with no balllon? I mean come on; those poor red shirts cant catch a break.

    Hey ebron,I hope you see this. I sort of copied your “injury 500” build. I hope that’s ok. Also, if you could find some time, take a look at my Krustyland in progress, and give me some design tips, I would appreciate it. (My brother is criticising it right now, and I would love some tsto addict help to beat him, since he doesn’t use the site)

    • Two easy changes…first – move the I&S gate to where your Krusty gate is to take advantage of the extra 12% bonus from the I&S parking lots. Then, 2- put your whale arena snug up behind(or in front of) the log ride and put a little more water around them both. If you can buy more property, do it, and move everything a little farther apart, if not…make clusters of like items (stores, restaurants, rides) on islands surrounded by water and joined by bridges.

        Thanks ebron =). I actually do get the parking lot bonus, but I appreciate the detail. I like the island theme and will get to work =).

  7. So I think I finally decided where I want KISland, which requires moving Praiseland over. I have tried so many times, sometimes minimally successful at using the group moving technique. I’m struggling. Tech, vision, coordination impaired, all the above IDK, at this pt., storing and resetting would be faster. Tips welcome.

    • These tips might be helpful:
      1)Have your new location fully clear of any buildings, items, or trees
      2)Draw Roads or Dirt in new area identical to old area. This can make adjustments faster before you drop buildings in there.
      3)Drag Select smaller sections to make moving faster/more manageable.
      3b)Drag Select blocks (with roads) and group store if moving across map. Roads will snap to road grid possibly making placing easier.

    • How do I just get the photo to show up instead of the link to photo? Is there something I missed?

      • The flicker site is not as transfer friendly as imgur…you can upload to imgur without an acct and then copy the address into your post…easier for Alissa to transfer the photo.

        • I’ll try that. However may be a while until I find another screenshot worthy of being posted. That was a good one!
