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 latest installment of Superheroes hit our games earlier this week, with an all-new mini-event.  Thoughts on the mini-event?  Content? Any premium items you’ll be picking up?

ICYMI…we aired part 2 of the Addicts Live Blogiversary Q&A yesterday.  You can check it out here, and if you missed part 1 you can find that here.  You won’t want to miss the laughs on these!  And we’ll be back with brand new live episodes in October!

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Hopefully, everyone in the path of Hurricane Florence is safe.

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. Anyone else missing items today? My studio from the music event is missing. Haven’t checked to see if the characters are missing yet. I think it may be like the disappearing Poochie Event glitch.

  2. Does anyone else think the jobs at the Googolpex are a pretty bad deal ? With a minimum of 50K cash outlay to get 5 green chairs for Springfield heights, which homer could make in under 3 minutes with zero cash outlay is there any real benefit to doing any of the Googolplex jobs?

    • I love them. I’ve maxed out my Springfield Heights stuff and it’s the only way to keep acquiring more. I’m still hoping there’ll be another addition to SH…

    • If you have extra millions and nothing to spend them on, I guess it’s one way to use up excess cash. I use the characters overnite (8 hr) tasks for SH currency if I need it…painless way to make a bunch of items while I sleep.👍😁

  3. So what was the point of the Surly Goat Tent? I thought it was a tie- in between Poochie and Itchy & Scratchy Land. Why didn’t we get Surly Goat as a character? The tent is sorely out of place without a character.

    • I just added mine to the County Fair and called it a day. The goat would have been a sweet prize🏆🐐👍, but instead we got another car (that doesn’t even move) for Poochie…☹️

  4. did they “fix” multiple level ups in 1 go? ive got 4900% and buying rat trap truck now correctly gives me 3 or 4 levels (3.75 to be exact). previously the extra levels were wasted

    • I think the counter just deducts the amount of xp you use to level up (however many times) and you keep the leftover (less than a million) xp towards the next time. When I RTT farm, there is always some xp left in the counter when I’m done, since they only award “level-up” on an even million. Hope this makes sense😁.

      • from my past experience, with xp collider active, if a decoration gives me 2mil xp, it drops 2 pieces of blue xp (1mil + 600k) and 1 piece of yellow xp (400k). it will collect these pieces of xp individually and level up 1 at a time (1mil gives 1 level and 600k+400k gives another level for a total of 2 levels).

        if a decoration gives me 2.5mil xp, it drops 1 piece of blue xp (2mil) and 1 piece of yellow xp (500k). when it collects the 2mil xp, i only gain 1 level so the extra level is wasted. then it collects the 500k correctly. this was the case when i tested it a few months ago. im not sure when they changed it, but when i test it now, collecting the piece of 2mil xp correctly gives me 2 levels instead of wasting 1 level

  5. Has anyone stored and unstored any of the animal habitats? Do they stay upgraded when unsorted? Just finished my zoo and have two habitats that don’t fit. Want to store but don’t want to lose the upgrades.

  6. Hi! I got an XP in my daily task. How long does it last? Should i do anything to maximize its use? Thanks!

    • its a day long xp boost in your colider, worth about 5 donuts… to use it best, depending on your money and level, either buy a ton of Kem’s (Kwik E mart’s) or rat trap trucks, (if you dont make a ton of money, I recomend the Kem’s). Save up a bunch of cash, Then build a ton of Kem’s. when you can complete the building, DON’T. First, turn on the Colider with the daily task’s reward. Then build them. Do the same every 4 hours for that day. The tons of exp will result in lots of leveling up, resulting in lots of donuts for you. mmm…. donut….

      • When I did the 24 hour XP collider, I would collect at least $50million in-game cash, build as many KEMs as I could fit in my town BEFORE I went to sleep, wake-up and turn on the XP Collider and start harvesting. Every four hours, build 200-400 KEMs and reap the sugary goodness. In my B town, I’m just about to $100million. I have to buy some farmland first.

        In my A town, the XP Collider is constantly running. I spend 25 donuts every 10 days but with building the Monorail continuously, I can clear 280-300 donuts a week.

      • Always proud of fellow hardcore Addicts!

    • Oh wow! Thank you so much for your suggestions. I have a ton of cash, like 191 million, level 267. I’ll make some space and do a little farming.

  7. Just noticed Everyman is a seperate character, so we have two comic book guys in Springfield now. I’ll have to archive one of them, as it’s a bit wierd having two…even for Springfield.

    • Yes I agree I rather have the Mrs. Glick (regular) than 3 Homer’s 2 barts.. etc. It is weird that’s why only one is visible at any given moment.

    • Everyman was actually created by Comic Book Guy and not CBG himself but I can see the confusion between the two. I would of preferred Alice Glick to be available as her own character and come with the Hot Flash outfit with the 150 donut purchase.

  8. I’m addicted to jet engine bikes.

  9. Any guesses on what the Halloween event could be about?

  10. Is there a glitch with Grampa? Whenever I sent the characters on tasks he always stays top left

    • Same here, switched skins and nothing.

    • I’ll tell you what happened: A certain someone had a senior moment. But that’s okay because we love him, and we got a free rug out of it!

    • My guess is its because he is reserved for working on the quest, even though he can’t unless you buy the skin. Same with Moleman.

    • I have this same issue and haven’t been able to figure it out. I thought perhaps something was wrong since I have decided to start completely over with my town design (I didn’t blow it up, I just stored everything that wasn’t a character related or money generating building). I thought it was just me because of this but maybe there’s a glitch altogether. I seem to also have the Overpass Diner quest locked, even though I would’ve completed that quest back 200+ levels ago when I first got that building. Weird.
