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…..

Happy Day Light Savings!  Today’s the first day of Day Light Savings Time in America, did you remember to set your clocks ahead?

Final days for the State of Despair mini-event, have you finished the questline yet?  Earned all the prizes?  Thoughts on prizes?  Characters?

ICYMI Addicts Live was all new yesterday, this is also where this week’s Addicts Simpsons Trivia can be found.  If you missed it check it out here.

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below!  And dont forget to submit your designs for showoff. (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)

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!

    So I just logged in and a dialogue started with Lisa and the Outdoor Feast Table was added. Not something I bought with the yearbook. Weird. EA did give me a free ghost airship though that some other folks have talked about. I asked for Kang and maybe Scary Zombie (since I bought springfield Cemetary, Victorian UFO and Ray Gun) but I’m happy with being able to finish Blackbeard Quest. Greatest week of tapping of my life!!!!!

  2. All my new content is creating a big owiiie moment in moving all the lovingly crafted scenarios before in to storage for I’m not exactly sure what. And how to make my new Transylvania

  3. Just downloaded the new update. It fixed a glitch of exiting and returning with new income. 🙁

    I got in the game late and all the old Krustyland, new Krustyland was before my time. I have OCD (don’t you have to to play this game nonstop?). One question I have not been able to have answered is how many NPC Krustyland visitors you should have in your KL now that it is clearly not the 30. I’m maxed out with five stars on my Krust O Meter and I count 12 in my KL. Does anyone know if that is the right number? All the searches I have are when KL seemed to be a separate screen you traveled to.

  6. It is a good time to RTT farm. I just did 38 without being kicked out!

  7. Hi everyone! I’m designing up my town… Slowly, maybe one or two buildings a day, but im making it. It’s kind of interesting to watch it grow…
    I’ve got a good start on evergreen terrace, but my downtown Springfield doesn’t look that good… although i guess downtown just doesn’t look as pretty without as much green… I still have a lot of work to do. I’ll be seeing you guy’s around as i visit your town and steal various ideas from it! Especially now that donuts aren’t a problem..

  8. Finished up the event a little while ago – picked up Rose, the Judge and emptied the mystery box too! Didn’t worry about the decorations like little lady or 5 corners or the other one. Good haul!

    I’ve decided to stop pursuing rail yard bonuts. It’s just too “grindy” for me. I’ve heard tell of people who can harvest 5 bonuts a day from the rail yard, but it’s just beyond me to generate 25,000 blueprints that quickly. Takes me 2 days if I seriously grind. I don’t have Lil Lisa’s Slurry plant, so maybe that’s the difference? Anyway – too hard. Not fun. Gone.

    Semi related – can you believe that I STILL had bonus% contributing items in my inventory? Just when I think I’ve hid stupidity bedrock, I can still pull one out and amaze myself. Hilarious.

    Tap on friends!

    • The plant is well worth it. I have one in ever town and never send out characters. It will pay for itself within a year.

      • Ha, as luck would have it – I just scored the Recycling Plant as a 30 donut “consolation” prize when I was chasing Bleeding Gums Murphy in the Yearbook Mystery Box. Free blueprints for me!


    • Rusty Shackleford

      I still work the railyard, and with the hippie, Jesse, and Brandine working, it isn’t so bad.

      Lisa’s slurry plant doesn’t help much, but I’m planning on buying it one of these days because I like the way it looks. If you don’t have Jesse, Brandine, or the Hippie, get them instead.

      KEM farming is a chore, but I do it sometimes. Today I was lazy and just harvested Rat Trap trucks.

    • My rail yard stopped working for me due to the rollback glitch :- (

    • What? Who cares about the donuts in the railyard…it’s the track that matters! 🙂

  9. I’ve read all your articles on KEM farming and rat trapping. One question or ask of advice – once you get past the levels and now have the choose a box to get donuts rather than straight up donuts which one is more effective? KEM farming or rat trapping? I have a ton of in game cash.
    Thanks in advance!

    • “I have a ton of in game cash.” – I will assume you mean you generate more cash each period then you can use by RTT farming. (For me it was when I hit 1 Billion). Then use “Time is money”. Going for 3 donuts is more time effective than farming (RTT/KEM). KEM farming is more cash efficient. With the addition of new land, finding a place to KEM farm shouldn’t be a problem. Worth it to buy land tiles for 12 donuts if you have to.

  10. I have played this game since it came out and this site has been very helpful over the years, but EA finally broke me. Eight times in the past two weeks the game as required me to fully download the game for no reason. I am not willing to waste 30-40 minutes to download the game anymore. Good luck to all you addicts. Maybe I’ll come back someday.

    The old SIB was, meh.
    I’m debating purchasing 5-Corners. I see earl purpose, unless someone can mention some fabulous 12 hour task that occurs there.

    Saving Donuts for the next EVENT.

    Building my CASH, in the meantime. By COB Tuesday, I should be at $1.1 billion, ore than 25% of the way to the maximum (?) of
    $4.3 billion.

    In the meantime, collecting Land Tiles and Pier Tiles.
