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…..

With Game of Games officially over we’re all just waiting around to see what’s next.  What do you think it’ll be?  When do you think it’ll hit?

With the new round of downtime what would you like to see us cover?

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?

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. I think I know the answer, but I can’t find anything online newer than about 2015 – I’m getting a surface and hoping to continue my gameplay in that. What do I need to do to be able to play TSTO?

  2. Just got a notification from Tapped Out about Canadian Flanders coming to the game. Any ideas, when and how that’s going to happen?

  3. My Deepest Black Good Wishes to those with health issues, and to those that love them. No One gets to stay here forever (and i’m not sure i’d want to, kids these days! sheesh! {grin}) but we live on for many many years through all the memories we create with everyone else we meet along our individual road trips hurling through the infinite void aboard our blue & green marble.
    I hope to be remembered more for all the times i’ve waved someone in in front of me, and less for the times i’ve leaned on the horn because traffic was holding me up.

    I’ve been waiting over 3-1/2 years for my precious 1987 Monte Carlo LS to get out of “paint prison” and it’s almost done, so I’m in a road trippy kind of mood.
    Again, best wishes to those in need of them!

  4. I have picked up Witch Marge.

    I have figured out that the 4hr task ( Speed Up a Crop ) you first have to plant something at Cletus’s farm before the task is enabled, but wondering how much time it reduces things by, in Marge’s 4hr task.

    Using Moonshine ( or corn ) as an example, in a single 4 hour task how much time will be shaved off?

    Would I need to send Witch Marge multiple times, especially with the 90 day corn task )

    Got enough land tiles from ggr to buy all the land and now its generating normal currency and xp, is that right?

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      Gone are the days that GGR continues to generate Land Tiles as long as there remains at least one un-purchased tile.
      I have one Tile in the bank and one u purchased slot,
      I’m prepared in case the opportunity arises in the future.

  6. Am I the only one who was utterly let down by Game of Games? I actually regret the land tokens I wasted buying land for this event.
    The buildings were unimpressive, the story line was ‘bluh’, the new characters didn’t even blip the radar. The only cool thing about it was Bart’s new skin, but other than that, I feel it was a total waste of my time and tokens.
    I expected something in the lines of Stonecutters, Badlands, or the Zoo and Krustyland, but this event was as unimpressive as those cool down events they have in between important events.
    Dunno, just me I guess.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      I agree. It was kind of all over the place. A couple of the buildings were ok. I had to rush through the last part with farm fresh donuts as my work was so busy, I didn’t have time to check in.

      My favorite event was the casino event. Great buildings and characters, nice side games. I used everything I earned from that event to build a casino district and its one of my favorite areas in my town.

  7. Help! I missed Golden Goose Realty and have bought up all the labs available for purchase. Anyone know how to get more land tokens?

    • Usually you can get them from events as prizes but the last one didn’t have any. Outside of events you can get a land token by completing a number of daily challenges though it is more rare to get these since the rewards are mostly donuts and mystery boxes.

      • Argh!! That’s what I figured… I was hoping there was a way to do it with donuts or something. I’m so pressed for land and it might be months before I get a land token from daily challenges. Ok, thank you!

  8. Hey All, first time posting on this “Open Thread”, just wanted to say thank you for visiting my town (i got room available for more.. don’t be shy), it is currently under construction, am moving stuff around and trying to utilize all the land available.. which brings me to what I wanted to point out… WE NEED MORE WATER tiles (can’t call it land, since its not land…) at least just one row, so we can really work on the Port and other shore/bay areas…

    Anyways, just stay positive (Like a car battery) and happy as a hippo..

    • Id like to be able to build more boardwalk tiles too!

      • Matthew Szekeresh

        At the risk of sounding sarcastic or like I’m suggesting the obvious. See if the yellow submarine is in your mystery box. It finds additional tiles on the seabed as it’s regular task. I bought it years ago at full price and it has been totally worth whatever I paid for it.

  9. I just want my damned TSTO game to work again on my Samsung s10. Don’t think I am asking for much…

  10. Boring old jag

    I haven’t played in 5 months this game has got so boring and too easy and repetitive especially with donut farming

  11. I’m sorry for not responding sooner but I didn’t get back from the hospital until 10:30 pm. I passed out from exhaustion and didn’t wake up till 1:00am. Thanks to all of you for your love and support. This site has attracted a very eclectic and very special group of people. I actually cried at all the warm and wonderful responses. It was a good kind of crying thou made me feel better. Again thanks so much.

    • 💗Oh, my dear Crazymom. Sorry I’m late to hear the news. I came here to check on something else and read your original post. I’m actually grateful that you shared your circumstances here – otherwise I wouldn’t have known what your beloved and you are going through, and well…geez.🙁 I realize that we are just Simpson neighbors, but you’ve been a great one, loyal and true, thank YOU for being so wonderful. Needless to say – as everyone here – I’ll keep you both in thoughts and prayers, and hope that you are getting all the real world support, guidance, strength you so truly deserve – from medicos, palliative care, and anyone else you two desire. Please take care of yourself, too, in all of this – that could be easy to forget to do when your love for him runs so deep.😿😘

  12. I’m hoping my phone will.update again (TSTO is continuously crashing after the last one!). Samsung J7- don’t get the latest update!!!

  13. 100001,1020, 201, 113, 53, 45, …
    What are next 3 numbers in the sequence?

  14. Yaaay finally figured out the wordpress login. Never noticed you could connect it to google before.

    In TSTO related news, I started working on my town re-design back in late may again, and I took a screenshot before I did anything, and then took another a couple days ago to see the progress. (that photo mode for our towns is awesome…

    Anyways if you wanna see the before and current click below:
    (I’ll share as links because the images are huge.)

    July 10th update:–17-05-05_zpsvrr5uxkr.png

    There has been work since that image, the ‘mega park’ has been finished up, i shifted the residential area up to the little river that runs into the park, and I’m working on a possible ‘junk yard’ area with the refrigatorium. The thing about my town is, I only keep stuff out that I like, or can make work with a design, otherwise it goes into inventory whether a character is linked to it or not. and the refrigatorium is one of those things… but I may have something going for it near my dump/recycle center.

    I’ll share another link maybe next time there’s an open thread 🙂

  15. Road trip :

  16. Hi everyone, Happy Sunday. Well I didn’t want to shat all over Keith’s great news,, but I need to talk about this with my other family. You guys are all so supportive and amazing plus I don’t have to listen to nonsense from the few relatives I have left. They sound so insincere that they make me feel worse. My husband is in the hospital battling for his life once again. This time he has liver and pancreatic cancer. They think it must have metastasized from when he had bladder cancer and they had to remove it. I hope I’m making sense. And I’m sorry to bother you guys with this. It’s just that I’m so freaked out I don’t know what to do. He. Is the love of my life and this really sucks. So please forgive me if you feel this is inappropriate for this site, it’s just that like I said before I’m freaking out and scared. Thanks for all the times you guys have made me lol. You have no idea how therapeutic it’s been at times when everyone gets silly and other worked up. You help me get thorough the day without even knowing it. I love you all and thanks for listening. 😑 😕 😰

    • Nobody can take away the fear in a situation like this, but sometimes it helps just to share your feelings. This is a really nice group of people…I’m sure lots of prayers and good wishes are coming your way.☺️

    • Hang in there! You need to find yourself some support. Try local support groups. Ask for group info at hospital. You are not alone.

    • Having jyst

    • I don’t know what happened to what i started posting…sorry if im repeating.
      I just got back from the hospital myself. My hubby and my friend is basically already gone. Now we watch and wait. And it hurts so much…to watch my hubby lose 1 of his best friends….one of the band of brothers. The guy who gave the biggest bear hugs! You want to just scream!!!!
      I don’t have the words to cheer u up. But I and everyone here will listen! We are a…..different kind of family. I am sending prayers and hope and healing thoughts your way. It sucks. It really really does. Vent away….we are here. *hugs*

      • Thanks so much Sandytoes. I’m sorry to hear about your friend, sounds like he’s a great guy. But hey like someone posted NEVER give up hope. Miracles do happen every day. Lots of prayers and good thoughts headed his way. Hugs and good vibes. 💝

    • You are in the right place…this community is full of love and support…so don’t hesitate to ask.

      Healing prayers coming your way! Miracles happen. Don’t give up hope.

    • Hi Crazymom,
      Sorry to hear about your husband. Thoughts are with you. I know that is hard, I went through something similar four years ago with my own husband. The game is a nice little diversion some times.
      Take care!

    • I will pray for your husband, you and your family. Cancer is a horrible thing to go through.

  17. It finally happened.
    I won a 3 eyed whale. 🐳
    I dont know how to feel right now.

  18. I’m ready for the takedown update. Where is it?

  19. Keith1Roon991

    Happy tapping all,

    Good news my wife got the all clear from the cancer scare, little bit more treatment with some radio therapy and we are all 😁 happy.

    Have a great week all, life just looks that bit brighter 😁

    Thanks to the writers of the show for a great game batch of dialogue! It felt like the the ‘real Simpson’s ‘ from the old days.

  21. Tracy-1ltwoody920

    And I still don’t understand the New Splash Screen.
    And I want Land in Springfield Heights.
    And I want some returning content from Stonecutters.
    I wasn’t playing then,
    I want
    I want
    I want

    Happy Sunday

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      Well, maybe not for all.
      Have in-laws North of New Orleans
      And much of the country is enduring heat.
      But for me, the weather so far has been cooler than normal (though hot the last few days). And it is supposed to remain cooler than the usual highs.
      In California, 90 to 95 is NOT the atrocious heat it is elsewhere. And although 100 to 110 is draining (and 115+ really slows me down)…
      We haven’t been hitting those highs here. Usually in the low 90’s at most.
      And this afternoon I create an Ukulele Widow in my wife as I head off to a 12 Bar Blues Jam. And enjoy a Happy Sunday.
