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…..

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!  The Christmas teaser hit our games last week, what are your thoughts on Ms. Claws and Hissmass?  Ready for Christmas?  What do you think we’ll see?

ICYMI..Addicts Live was all new yesterday!  We talked about ALL things TSTO Christmas! Check it out here.

Speaking of Christmas, have you started decorating yet?  Our halls have been decked since last weekend, y’all know I love Christmas! How about your shopping?  Made a dent in that yet?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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. Well Christmas has hit, and it looks good. Some land expansion would have been nice! EA needs to bring back Land Expansion for Cash!!

  2. Hi does anyone know if Sleeping Itchy’s Castle is storable after you take it out of storage?

  3. Ugh I am so NOT looking forward to the snow that comes with the Christmas event. My Springfield is in the middle of a revamp and it’s a bit difficult to arrange plants and such when EA covers them with snow/ plant covers! Oh well… I suppose I’ll have to wait until spring to continue my remodel. Is anyone else bothered by the snow that comes with every Christmas event?

  4. Is anyone missing Big Claw in their town? I haven’t seen mine in a few months. I opened an incident with EA a week or so ago, and they said he is currently in my town, but I haven’t seen him. He usually is on one of the two roads walking around.

  5. So I was dusting off some Christmas decor from my storage in the game and placed the elf shift bell from 3 or so years ago. It started a task for Homer to sabotage the bell. Is this an unfinished task? Has anyone else had this happen? Thought it was interesting.

  6. Hey folks,
    I hope everyone is having a great December so far.
    All I want for Christmas is to be able to delete the damned monorail track pieces. That’s all. I wish EA would do it!! I used to love farming their production…but it’s been over a year since I had to stop.

  7. Apparently insomnia = time to clean-up my Springfield 😆
    Been up since 3:30am. It’s now just after 5am & I have to get up to get ready for work in less than an hour but I’m wide awake. Bring on the coffee!!! ☕☕☕

  8. I’m stuck in the one event power something part 5 from before Halloween still!!! It’s a pain cuz all the kids want to do the job of collecting ooz so I can’t just use the one button to send them on jobs!!

  9. Last year the one of the Burns Mansion sets did not have snow on it. I think it was the BOTH SIDES when everything else did. It looked so out of place. Maybe Burns had a heated roof…or maybe they fixed the code this year. Here’s hoping …

  10. Got flying bats out of the halloween dig site the other day. Was hoping they would be back.

    • So far while digging for relics at the Halloween ruins dig site I have gotten ten different prizes.
      They have been (from most common to hardest to get):

      1. Dead Tree
      2. Gargoyle Wall
      3. Iron Wall
      4. Ruined Wall
      5. Hanging Streetlamp (rare)
      6. Flaming Torch (rare, 10 donut value)
      7. Skeleton Pile (rare)
      8. Bone Pile (rare)
      9. Vampire Casket (very rare)
      10. Flying Bats (very rare)

      • I haven’t received any bats yet, and need a few more bone piles, but I’m thrilled with 14 torches so far for the bonus % – it’s adding up nicely, especially for free.

      • I’ve surprisingly had a few torches but as yet no bats ?
        Altogether though a useful dig site to collect stuff for future Halloween events. The desert site I hardly bother with.
        Not long now for the BIG ONE, 1400 I think here in the UK. 4 parts could be good.

  11. Just crossed $1 Billion for the first time.

    Ready for Cecils new project …
    … Any time now…

    Seems like a project like “One Button Collect All” would be good for the New Year.

  12. i really wish they would add a dump or trade in option, i have multiple things in storage i just do not want anymore. 5 Lard lads i won randomly over the past couple years included.

    • Hey me on

      You nailed it! EA needs to allow us to delete / cash in \ trade in what is wasting space in storage …. and we know this wouldn’t take too much to code! 🙃

  13. Should we be saving our daily tasks for Wednesday?

    • You can, but you’ll have to x each out out once the update hits and daily challenges change over. They won’t automatically do it for you, like they do between acts. Instead you’ll have to wait a day and clear each one individually. So you can save them, but it’ll take some patience for them to be useful to you.
