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!

  2. Im only getting 1 free land token per day from my GGR. I’ll get the first one in the a.m. and when I go back into the game after 12hrs and check my GGR there is no land token and the timer on the building will say I have 11:59 minutes till the next one. Anyone else having this problem?

  4. Slowly rebuilding my town after nuking it. Finally got fed up with the patchworked layout and started trying to make it more sane.

    Thus far I’ve gotten a fair amount laid down and learned to loathe EA’s method of “organizing” the inventory.

  5. Hi. Can any one help. I’m getting started with donut farming and I would like some tips for myself

    Like

    • There is a lot of help on the site. Search for KEM farms, donut farming, rat trap trucks. If you have lots of cash (100 million+) RTT are a quick way to donut farm. KEMs are slower but save cash. Also don’t forget to buy Mystery Boxes (6 donuts) to increase your bonus. I recommend getting an initial bonus level to 1400%. Then you should be able to add 10% a day while being able to buy what you want.

    • Find and read Safi’s KEM farming posts first.
      While it’s very informing, I tend to need things spelled out in laymen’s terms, so some of what I did was ask ?’s here and did some experimenting on my own.
      First earn a lot of cash by either running the XP collider and placing ALL $ earning items around town (yes, it gets messy and disorganized but the payoff in donuts is a-maz-ing!)
      I think you have to be at level 939 to really benefit and have the XP collider and spare donuts for it to run, as much as you can afford. Trust me you’ll get it back!
      1. Do it on a day you can dedicate every 4 hours to farming.
      2. Get all the stars filled in your Conform-o-meter by buying the appropriate items (easy way to get Righteousness is to buy and place Training Walls)
      3. Buy, place, and level up ALL Springfield Heights buildings including the beach stuff, no need to keep the accessories you earn unless you wanna ‘pretty it up’
      (These have to be placed in SP to earn %, which gives donuts faster)

      4. In the Conform-o-meter, look at your ‘Bonus from Conformity and Decorations’, the higher the percentage the more often you get donuts.

      5. Buy as many KEM as you can easily afford.

      Build and sell every 4hrs

      I use about $1 Mil buying KEM’s. I have $16Mil to be able to afford to upgrade the win of donuts to 3.
      My percentage is at almost 1400% and I get about 300 donuts a day.

  7. I have no time to finish this mini event (been tapping less recently life is busy) I won’t finish the prizes by Wednesday but my question is will they disappear forever? Because as far as I know these mini events appear fresh for new players at random times, will it go away and come back to be and pick off in the middle of the quest line does anyone know?

    • You probably won’t get a second shot at it. The random events, if they happen, happen for those who never got them before. You’ll have an opportunity to earn whichever prize you’re working on when it ends, but after that your only hope will be mystery boxes.

    • I send all characters manually in both my towns as I have certain people on tasks to illuminate buildings that amuse me.

      Along with some on the boardwalk. Cregg Demon always summons a hell skank there; Whilst Moe’s sister gives cooking demos & such other characters whom have tasks that look good on the boardwalk do their thing.

      I don’t use the IRS collector in either of my towns.

      I’m a retiree; So TSTO is my main form of daily amusement on my old ipad.

  11. Happy Sunday, everybody!
    Please could someone kindly advise me about the x-ing out of Daily Challenges? I’ve been playing TO for many years, and have always been able to x out the Daily Challenge only once a day. However, a while ago, I read that you can x out the challenge twice a day so I checked with Safi who agreed with this. I also checked Alissa’s blog about Daily Challenges, written when the challenges first started, and it said you could only cancel it once a day. Am I supposed to do something to trigger the twice a day option? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    • If I X it out in the morning, I can X it out again before I go to bed.

      Maybe you are in a different part of the world and the time zone you’re in doesn’t line up with the time that the day in the game changes to the next day? I’m in mountain time in the USA. Just a thought.

    • You should be able to “x out” a task every 12 hours. Sometimes it takes 5 or 6 attempts, but more often the donuts show up as a prize by the third try.😁

      • The Stonecutters have always been premium as long as you have the main Stonecutter’s building. I think they have 2 tasks each that are located at non-premium buildings that do not pay out at a premium rate. So it really is the main Stonecutter building that makes them premium. I did just recently notice the wizard skins are premium as well. At least Bart’s and Lisa’s. I’ve know for awhile that Marge’s wizard skin has been premium.

  18. Well, I got all the land this week so I’m doing some major designing. I set up a highway to one corner that I’ve made into a little Shelbyville and Capitol City area. The Outlands are finally isolated in another corner, and I have some space for an amusement park area in my downtown, though it’s still a pretty small park. I might need to move it. Anyway, it’s been fun, and the whole-town photo is very helpful.

    In addition to the glitch mentioned above, there still exists the problem of continual zoom mode that came along with the “camera” feature. Hoping they did it sooner than later as it really takes away from playing. Tech support was unable to help.

    With the Sky Finger glitches, I have decided to collect my land tile first, then collect characters income and play the mini-games, visit friends (I get bonus XP after finding a relic if I go “visit” and return), and then use the sky finger to collect any remaining building income. I believe this will avoid all the negative problems with the glitches.

    Can i just say I’m kinda REALLY salty about the decision to remove the Leon/Michael Jackson episode from the Simpson library. Its one of my favorites….that song, the LOVE there. It’s such an awesome brother-sister moment that I cherish. It sickens me that they want to focus on the negativity that they want that episode to now represent. It just makes me so sad.
    Anywho…..have an AWESOME day, my pretties❤

        I’m more sad about losing Apu. The Simpsons of yesteryear would have instead made an episode where Apu would be laughing at stereotypes of his people, but then show all the other stereotypes in the show.

    • “Salty”? Now there’s a term I haven’t heard before . . . yeh, it’s a polarising question: is it still OK to listen to someone’s music after they’ve been accused of something as heinous as pedophilia. Remember, these are accusations, and in Australia at least the presumption of innocence applies.

      I’m not a Michael Jackson fan so this doesn’t affect me as far as the appreciation of his music goes (altho I really love that Simpsons episode), but if similar accusations were made against one of my musical/cinema/literary/political heroes I would immediately go into denial.

      If, however, the accusations were eventually proved beyond reasonable doubt, then I do not think in all good conscience I could ever listen to that music/watch those movies/read those books/vote for that candidate again.
