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…..

First of all, it’s Father’s Day here in the US and Canada (and i’m sure some other places as well).  So happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  (especially Patric and Wookiee!)

ICYMI Addicts Live was all new yesterday!  We talked all things Game of Games and the Simpsons E3 Panel.  Check it out here if you missed it. 

All new event in TSTO ongoing now!  Have you started playing the Game of Games update?  Thoughts on the prizes?  Questlines? Just excited to have new content?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below! (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?  Anything fun planned for Father’s Day?

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. Did anyone see the new giant pink donuts (with sprinkles) for sale at Costco?

    Homer would be drooling right now.

    • You know, I’m at Costco every week. I know that store like the back of my hand…I have yet to see this.

      • Ditto. Our Costco is weird though. They sometimes bake and sell some interesting items that you won’t see again for a few months. I don’t know that I could buy such a huge donut. I might be tempted to go all Homer in on it.

      • I think it’s for sale in Australia only

  2. Betty aka UFgator89

    Just noticed that all my neighbors are gone. I know I’ve heard of this happening to others. What was the trick to fix this? Thanks, Betty

  3. eg…
    #Greensboro NC

  4. Missed this an posted on an ol’e grumpy thread on tagging. I know there were thoughts on consolidation of tagging/no tagging. How about a a “hi-dilly-ho nehborino” or whatever you want to call it that A)doesn’t care about tagging B) lists generally where in the world we are from and 3) is searchable on the site in case we want to find each other (no extra work from you wanted…maybe a #? Just a thought, kick it around. I’ll send an example in a new post in case you don’t want to promote my friending on here, I’d have to clean out first to take many more. Cheers Tappers!

    • I am still advocating for a single…”Add Neighbors” section…no modifiers…no other delineation. People can add their preferences into their “add me” comments. Very simple.

    • Yes that is easier, but who asked for easy? Other than sane folks? Just a thought for people who care more about the community aspect then the stats. Feel free to add me and I’ll tag when I can. I’d love to see your town. Thanks for your insight. Love you guys.

    • There is already a separate “no graffiti” page in “ADD FRIENDS” on this site.

  5. Hey neighbors! I kinda messed up big time! I didn’t realize that the golden goose realty would basically be the only way to get land tokens and I didn’t purchase it when it was available. Does anyone know how I can get more land tokens or if the golden goose realty will be back in game again soon? I’m running out of space and figured there would be free tokens with this new event but thus far it’s been a big no on that one. Please and thank you to anyone who can help 🙂

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Only other way that I know of is through the daily challenges, occasionally the reward is a land token.

      Not sure why GGR is not in the store. Luckily I bought it as soon as Alissa recommended it. Wish I could gift you some tokens as I still have plenty of land available for purchase with money and so the tokens are just piling up.

      • Thanks for the info, guess I’ll just keep my eyes out for it’s return (hopefully). I appreciate the sentiment too!

  6. Thanks Alissa 😁🇳🇿

  7. Is anyone else having the issue of extra passes not carrying over to the next part I had 56 passes and only needed 18 and the rest didn’t carry over this has happened twice part 3 and part 4

    • They don’t carry over. Not an issue, just how the game is played.

    • If you calculate the number that you need for the first prize and wait 5 minutes or so the points might carry over to the next prize .
      It seems like I used that trick in a previous event but I’m not tried it in this one .

      On a side note have you ever read about Ned Kelly that lived in Australia ?

      🐒🌎 . See ya bye . 👽

      • Just to be a little more clear put 5 minutes in between your characters at work .
        That way you’re not collecting all of them at one time .
        Good luck I might have to use that myself and see if it’ll work on this event .

        My Dog says Hi .

        🐒🌎 . See ya bye . 👽

  8. Anybody find a creative way to display their green tennis courts? Have hid as many as possible. Still have dozens gathered in Springfield dump area

  9. Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers out there!

  10. Happy Fathers Day to all you fantastic Dad’s out there!! My father, husband and I spent the day at the hospital with my Gramps (that’s what I call him) Its funny how people call there Grandparents by different versions of the name. He’s coming to the end of his time with us on earth. I’m so grateful to be his Granddaughter and sadness aside it was a great day with my 3 favourite Dads ever!! It really is the little moments that make life so sweet!! I finished the prize track this morning and looking forward to next week. I like the prizes for this event I’m really enjoying it!! Wishing all the tappers out there a great Sunday!!

  11. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!

    A few weeks ago someone mentioned they were watching a show called “Letterkenny”. Since I had never heard of it before we decided to check it out. And, I have to say it is one of the funniest and unique shows I have ever seen. Definitely dialog driven, so you do kinda have to pay attention, but well worth it. I admit sometimes it was what I call “juvenile boy humor”. But overall really funny. My hubby kept saying “This show is GREAT!!” So a big thank you to whoever it was that mentioned this in their post.

    Off to go camping for two weeks with no internet available so looks like I will miss some of this event. But that’s ok. Look forward to this trip every year!

  12. Hi Everybody…Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!

    Making a little time to do some tapping and finally won the flower cart today. Was a little under-whelmed, until I found a spot for it.
    The Hippy Dippy musician can now accompany Ned’s folks 24/7 while they get mellow and smoke some🌿 “dubious plant” 🌿parts

  13. Did I miss something? Have they removed TSTO from Amazon Kindle? When I search the app store, there is no TSTO. When I try to log into the game, I get the “Update Available” dialogue, but when it opens TSTO in the app store, it only offers the option to open the game, not update it. I finally got it to install on my phone, but I have only just started the event.

    • How old is your device? Possible it’s no longer supported

    • justinmwat151

      I had the same problem and yes it appears it’s no longer supported on older Kindles. I had to bite the bullet and order a new tablet

      • They did this a couple of years ago with iOS and Android. Just can’t keep up with the newest versions and still support the older ones. Frustrating for sure!

        • I tried sending a trouble ticket, saying I’m playing on Kindle and can’t update. They sent a response saying clear your phone’s cache and restart your phone, then update the app. My kindle works just fine, I’m not spending money I don’t need to just for a game. Ya’ll enjoy playing, it has been fun knowing you all and being part of this community.

  14. Happy tapping all 😁, and Happy father’s, finished the 1st act this morning, had a nice family dinner and very thankfull today to have them here, enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a great week 😀

  15. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and really everyone since we’re all kids of someone. I hope it has been a good day!
    I called my dad today and having this holiday remind me of how lucky I am makes everything about random holidays worth it.
    It’s good that we have a new event; I like the EA building mostly and it’s a funny story line as well. Glad to see a bit of refreshment spritzed onto the wilting game 🙂 My design plans, as always, seem to linger on the vine without me getting really creative or finding the time to do anything about it. I am really enjoying visiting friends and seeing what they’re up to, even if I can’t get there every day.
    Anyway, hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend!!

  16. HaPpY fAtHeR’s DaY to all u proud papas out there!🏆🏆🏆
    Moms work harder and all…but you guys deserve some credit too.😁
    🍕🏈🏀⚾Enjoy your day!!!!!!!🍺🍔⛳🎣

  17. 💙 Happy Father’s day . 💙

    🐒🌎 . See ya bye . 👽

  18. Always check the site before I log into my game… if my math is right, I’ll be finishing up this Act and getting my character (Happy Father’s Day to me! Lol).

    Thank you all for all that you do, and for continuing to help me see and get pleasure from the one video game that I still play consistently.

    And a Happy Father’s Day to everyone whom it applies. 🙂

    • Thanks! Happy to help. It’s the “father” in me…

    • Thanks for the event info spot. It’s been awhile since I needed the calendar. It’s nice that it’s easy to find without scrolling.

      My Springfield is a mess. I cleaned out the massive box and plopped it all down. It was a fun binge, but some clean up and design is needed.

      The event has me more interested in TSTO again. I was playing about once every 2 or 3 days. The 4 times a day is a familiar, fun grind after a long span of not that much to do in TSTO.
