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…..

Simpsons Babies is in the home stretch! Just a few more days and then it’s all over.  Thoughts on the event, love it or hate it?  Where have you placed the items?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Don’t forget the Simpsons Babies Showoff this week! Designs need to be in by Tuesday night… more here.  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? Holiday weekend in many places,  doing anything to celebrate?

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 don’t know if this is happening to anyone else, but I just wasn’t able to log into any of my games.

  2. I just got a message saying I have enough land tokens to unlock all available land, so the GGR will switch to earning “grind currency at premium rate” (exact wording). I intentionally didnt unlock all land (there’s still locked ocean), I thought the GGR would continue to give me land tokens and I could stach them for possible land expansion in the future… Guess they decided to change it, which means they also removed the possibility to exchange tokens for donuts.

    (Sorry if this has been noted before, I have been sort of drifting during the lull)

  3. Woohoo! I bought my last square of land. I worked so long to get every square. I’m not to happy with Golden Goose Realty only paying out $300 and 30 XP. It would be great to be able to continue to earn land so I’m ready for the next expansion.

  4. Where do you get Baby Moe and Baby Barney?

  5. So, running into a problem that I’ve never had happen. Tried to end my daily challenge jobs early and now I seem to be stuck in a loop where even after tapping on the characters, the game doesn’t think they’ve finished the job (and aren’t available for more jobs). I exit and come back in and it starts all over. I clears the daily challenge characters but the game doesn’t think they are clear. Help!

  6. Wait? What? HELP HELP!!!
    See, i know I shouldnt buy all the land with the landcoins from the golden goose so it would keep making landcoins. Because it stops giving landcoins and gives money instead if you have bought all your land. So i have 1 landpiece still available for that reason and the goose is now making what normally would be the last landcoin.
    And then i get the message that since i have enough landcoins to buy all the land, it will start making credits now. What?
    Whats going on?

  7. Hey EA! How about some train track to go with that station you gave us a while back. Anyone else agree?

  8. Today I finally finished buying all the available land so now my goose realty just pays out $300 instead of land tokens and I’m getting an offer popping up to trade in my extra land tokens for 12 donuts per token. Which seems fair because I was paying 12 donuts to speed up the goose realty for the token it gave out. Has anyone else experienced this too?

  11. Hopefully EA fixes the game when we remove this update!!! My devices are new and I’m getting kicked out several times a day!! Sorry to my neighbours I’m getting kicked out to often to visit all of you! Wonder if we will have an event before Halloween!?? 🎃 I wonder what our Halloween event is going to be!? I’m excited and maybe a little nervous!! LOL think my expectations for Halloween are getting a little high! Happy Sunday and Happy Tappin Friends!! 🎃💀👻😈

  12. Never had a problem before the patch…now my game crashes all the time.. playing on OnePlus 5.

  13. Carmen (gameid5000)

    I think I have to turn in my Addict card.

    My XP collider ran out and I’m not inclined to spend the donuts to keep it running full time.

    I have stopped cycling characters, except to finish the event.

    I’ve had thoughts that the simple four week event format they use now is not really interesting anymore.

    I’ll keep an eye here to see if they come out with something new, but otherwise my phone will get a rest from TSTO, as will I.

  14. Ran into a really bad glitch over the past couple of weeks. Every time I would be awarded donuts from collecting from buildings and or character jobs I would lose everything I was just awarded if I went to my neighbours or left the game. This would also happen when I did KLM farming, I would lose all the donuts I got from farming.
    I had contacted EA and tried a few things to see if anything would clear up.. it would for about a round or two and then I would start losing donuts again even after uninstalling and reinstalling the game. the issue continued. It wasn’t until last Wednesday when part 4 event started and I wasn’t able to play because of donut loss I contacted EA again (5th time) Since I had already done all that was able to do and nothing seemed to be corrected, EA awarded me 300 donuts for my losses. (I didn’t ask for any as I had quite a large amount on hand). After a few tests to see if the donuts would stay or disappear, the donuts stayed.. and have stayed since the last help session.
    The donut loss was not really a big issue to me at the time. My issue was before the losses My game reset back to the end of June.. this meant I lost all the Flanders Reunion buildings, decorations, and characters. I also had to restart the Simpsons Baby event .. but was not able to get my Gil Deal back nor the building/characters offers of the previous events. so I am down 3 Flander charaters and 4 baby characters. Hopefully they will show up in the near future to buy. EA wasn’t able to restore them for me.. I am just happy they were able to fix the donut issue, and hoping it doesn’t come back.

    Happy Sunday everyone
    Every now and then my Starlight Drive In shows a movie. Two days ago it did this for a couple of hours. Alternatively a Man then a Woman.
    Darned if I know how this initiates.

    • I keep Weird Al in there to keep the movie rolling.

      • Tracy-1ltwoody920

        And what task do you assign to keep him there?
        I just pulled him off Jamming on stage— I don’t see anything that resembles allowing the movie to run.
        I’m more confused than normal!

        • Weird Al’s 12-hour ‘Get Inspiration’ task animates the Stardust Drive-In, but only if he is closest to it (he will go to other places if they are closer by).

      • Ha I didn’t know that. Learn something new every day.. LOL 😛

    Well, when I was around 4 years old, i TRIED to walk through the walls — I had a ‘goose egg’ on my forehead for sometime after that failed attempt.



  17. Welcome new neighbors and old ones .

    Welcome one and all .

    Always remember BART MUST DIE .

    See ya bye . 👽

  18. Anyone notice being disconnected from the server quite often? It happened to me 5 times this morning during my morning reset. And if I reconnect without quitting the game, the sound doesn’t work so I stlll have to restart if it’s time to play the Where’s Maggie? minigame.

    • Yup. Annoying as sin.

    • Yep! For the past few days I keep getting kicked off. It seems to happen a lot when I’m visiting my neighbors. (Waving hi to my wonderful neighbors!) and also just as I’m about to collect donuts.

    • Same here. It’s quite annoying.

    • Yup !!!! Same thing. I’m having the same problem. Alas, it’s been happening to me since January, every single time I start playing several times with each log in. Extremely annoying. Arrrrgh. 😫😠😈. Also, I’m still getting that weird sound when I first sign into my game ?? Sounds like a crackling fire and then changes to what seems to be a babbling brook. Lol

  19. Happy tapping all, have a great week

  20. Well, after a 2 week delay (Amazon Fire user), I finished all the tasks in this event. Lots of fun but I missed baby Frink and the Gil deal for baby Moe and baby Barney. Hope EA will put them back in the store.

  21. Hi guys. Does anybody else have characters that walk through buildings ? Therefore, cannot find them ! And it takes forever to scroll though the character list. (My top left button doesn’t work because of the roll back glitch).
