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 St. Patrick’s Day!  Try not to drink too much green beer!

Back to back mini-events in Springfield, first time I can remember that happening.  Thoughts?

While there’s a mini-event going on, the real story of TSTO right now is the Yearbook Mystery Box.  What are your thoughts on the box?  Have you tried it?  Get anything good?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below!  A heads-up, I”ll announce this later this week, but planning on doing a smorgasbord Showoff on March 26th.  Basically a free for all where you can send me screenshots of any part of your Springfield.  Just so you have a heads up on designing…  (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!

  1. Can’t do Blackbeard’s questline… Can’t have him Seek His treasure 🙁

  2. Just added a family member’s brand new town to the add friend requests 😀

  3. Invest in a new Huawei or Samsung, I have played on both with no problems,

  4. I’m still waiting for a kindle fix; haven’t played since January 😢. I’m really upset by this.

  5. Has anyone heard anything from MAB? I checked his flickr acct and he hasn’t posted any pictures there either since December. Hope he’s ok😕.

    • Sorry for the super-late reply…. I think he’s probably okay, since he’s one of my neighbors and I checked and he last played just 7 hours ago.

      • krustoferson123

        how can you tell when a neighbor has played or hasn’t played?

        • Go to your friendvilles screen and tap the shaking hands icon in the bottom right. Then, scroll to the name of the friend you’re interested in and tap on their name and you’ll see a pop-up that tells you how long ago they were last in the game.

      • Thanks, Sandra…can’t fault him for taking a break from the comments. Glad he’s still playing 👍😁.

  6. Big thanks to this site and resident Addicts for comprehensive intel and loads of incredibly valuable information ! I found a post from 2016 that explained why I couldn’t send characters to Duff Gardens – Tap the building not the obvious floating head – d’oh !! I was thinking it was yet another EA snafu.

  7. I joined the game a few days ago and are at level 9, but the event won’t happen. I really want the mystery box. Do you have any idea on the source of the problem?

  8. Curious if the new Mystery Box is permanent? Like they will just keep adding to it? There’s no date on it to expire.

    *Fingers crossed*

  9. Starting on a low note, my dad’s birthday/deathday anniversaries are March 14 & 16, so no St. Patty’s Day celebrations for me.. I’ve now created a 3-day event to do stuff my dad would’ve done or enjoyed, one of those things includes watching classic Simpsons episodes and recovering from a minor hangover. Being in Victoria, Canada (I heard your comments on Addicts Live Patric, you’re not wrong), the weather was gorgeous and the weekend filled with awesome dad-like activities finishing with pints at Irish pubs.

    Mini events: As long as the game is alive, bring em on. @EA, let us know when you’re ready to come back full force, we’re still here!

    Mystery Box: Buying 2-3 items per day and saving 30-60/day for any sneak-events *possibly* on the horizon. Really happy with it as I’m happy to have decorations galore in my SF and additional characters/questlines are more than welcome right now.

    Things I would love the game to introduce.. Springfield Airport granting airport decorations when passengers “return”, I really need new tarmac tiles to increase the size of my airport.

    PSSST! There’s a wealth of material in a possible Springfield Dump update (recycling industry is crumbling in America). Why not let Burns invest in recycling again by suggestion of the Junior Achievers Club?
    Since so many players that currently aren’t KEM farming rely on dailies and recycling to earn donuts, why not expand it?
    Bring back Lyle Lanley, introduce John (Waters) and his antique retro junk (sorry 20th century fans), tie-in new characters to keep up, recycle, organize. Reduce the price of the Recycling Plant and create a few new decorations.
    Look at all the junk in the dump! SO many episode references.

    Sunday NEW Episode: E My Sports was one of the better currently-relevant episodes I’ve seen in a while. Seriously that episode will probably create 50 memes within itself in the gaming community. I enjoyed it, will watch again this week for the jokes I’m sure I missed.

  10. I hear ya. I have a bunch of items I earned from past events taking up space in inventory and i can’t sell them.

  11. Am I the only one that is annoyed that we can’t sell every item? I mean, do we really need 10 of the same building in Springfield Heights? So annoying. Was just wondering if I’m the only one that finds it annoying. 🙂

      You are not.

    • I don’t think everything has a cash price applied.. craftables, event items, they may not even have the code that grants a currency amount if being sold for cash. That’s my thought at least, beyond “they don’t want us to sell event items”
