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 are back!  An all-new episode airs tonight!  Don’t forget to watch

Cthulhu’s Revenge mini-event is winding down.  Have you finished the prize track?  Thoughts on the mini-event overall?  What do you think Halloween will contain?

Speaking of Cthulhu’s Revenge…don’t forget Springfield Showoff this week!  Everything Fogbury!  Be sure to send in your submissions by Tuesday evening…

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. Just reading a few comments, I see the misery/heartache/frustration I missed by not playing the game,
    I should feel better!
    All you suckers still playing, …..
    Your lives are passing you by!
    Yes, I miss it,….but I don’t miss trying to play at every opportunity, all day, every day……

    I haven’t been un-faithful…..not played any other game,
    All games just take up more time than I could spare,

    Is it Hallowe’en yet? and you’re all waiting for an update?
    and buying a boatload of 🍩 donuts?


  2. So I experienced the best glitch ever. My wife was in the hospital for 5 days with kidney problems and all I had to keep me occupied was TSTO. One morning I sent all of my springfeilders on a daily task to krusty burger, 4 hours later I completed the tasks and all of my springfeilders exited Krusty burger and immediately went right back in. I knew it’s a bug of some sort so I force closed the game and rebooted. All of the springfeilders that went back into krusty burger had completed the task a second time. When I collected again they went right back into krusty burger so force closed the app again. This went on for 72 hours, I just kept force closing and then opening the game and collect the finished tasks over and over and over. I went from level 280 to level 939 in just a couple of days. I ended up buying everything in the yearbook with this glitch. I finally got board and decided to try and fix the glitch by selling the krusty burger that everyone was in and it worked, I regret not taking advantage of this glitch longer but oh well. It was probably the best thing to happen and the timing was great lol

  3. No halloween update I guess 🙁

    • Never say never. In “the old days” major updates wouldn’t hit the files until around 2pm ET the day they were slated to go live. Perhaps EA’s returning to that?

  4. Did MAB ever come back?

  5. Hi all,
    After listening the Addicts podcast…..
    Patrick: “ you know me, I’ve got a huge monorail layout – it just goes forever” …. a simple solution to Patrick’s item limit woes – rejig your monorail, make it smaller. Problem solved.

  6. After watching this weekend’s episode, I am surprised there wasn’t an episode tie-in where we got Mike and his pizza slice truck.

  7. *whispers – so far, no BSoD* but, I did go to pop over to my neighbors & *gasp* they’re all GONE! All I have is the other Springfield. Hopefully, this is just a glitch from EA working on the server issues & I’ll get them back. I am still logged in to the EA/Origin account (just not FB & I bet if I logged into FB through the game, I’d get some neighbors back). Anyone else having the disappearing neighbors glitch?

    • If you get off the game and then come back…99% of the time they’ll be back.👍
      Happens ALL THE TIME.😒

  8. Upgraded my phone and now can’t login to game. What is going on?

  9. EA servers down ??? Can’t log in.

  10. 10 rat truck’s = 9 donuts before getting cut off 🙆👎☹️

  11. Haven’t touched this game since last Wednesday morning although I already completed the mini-event days earlier. Surprisingly, I did not endure the Bart Screen of Death and was able to stay logged in for at least 10 minutes as I send all my characters on their 24 hr tasks.

    I still don’t trust the EA servers and no plans on returning to this game until the upcoming Halloween event update this week. I used to log in regularly every day but will no longer do so until it’s confirmed that the BSOD has been finally fixed. I’ll only log in during events and stop playing upon completion if the BSOD still persists.

  12. Please not Wednesday!! I know we all want the THOH update, usually one of the year’s best events. But it’s Yom Kippur. I can’t risk playing TSTO in synagogue. Who do you think I am, Bart?

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      Would Bart play in synagogue? Probably.
      Would Bart be in synagogue? Probably not.
      (Or any church, unless forced?)

  13. Another question for ya. Does the hot air balloon in the vault, does it sit on the ground or in the sky?.. Thx.

  14. Hey peeps, quick question for anyone.. In the big book of deals can you get more than just one item? Example like the billboards for 30 doughnuts? Also anybody else see that when you hit the upgrade on the pool decoration it takes you to the Krusty van teleporter… Thx.

  15. Hi all, back in time for halloween, hope I’m not dissapointed. The mini event is quite good but, well “mini”
    Seem to be getting booted off the server more than I remember. Is this the new norm?
    Well at least the game still exists. 😛

    Happy Sunday.

    • Thought you were loooong gone!
      Welcome back neighbor!🎃

      • Thanks. I couldn’t play as the old Kindle I was using was no longer supported by the game. Got a new one last week, just in time for the Halloween season.

  16. Nice pj’s Sandytoes!! Oh Much Music in Canada is showing all the Simpson’s Halloween episodes this month. I started recording them last week, now I will have them all in order!!

  17. I’m very very tired of the Bart screen of disappointment!! I need to be WOWED on Wednesday!! I need it!! I know I sound whiny but it has been long enough of these server issues come EA give us Tappers some excitement!! Fix the problem and let’s make this year’s Halloween event spooktastic!! 👻💀☠️😈🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️ Hope everyone had a good week. All my Halloween decorations are up, orange lights and all!! Happy Tappin Friends!!

  18. Question about the impossible tower glitch. Years ago when we first got the impossible tower it could be placed on one boardwalk tile. If i now move my tower with the tile, will i lose the glitch?

    • I got the impossible tower from the yearbook about a month ago. Mine is placed on boardwalk tiles. I have stored it a placed it on the tiles with no issues.

      • yeah you can place it on mujtiple tiles (at least 4) but originally there was a glitch allowing you to place it on one tile. This makes a nice effect of the tower floating on water

    Happy Sunday all. I would be playing the game now but I keep getting the BART screen. Grrrrrrr

  20. Tracy-1ltwoody920

    Happy Sunday everyone.

    Upgraded my internet — from 5mps to 50mps. Think I got it working.
    That changed my email— still working on that. Thirty five years of an old address.
    Updating my cable box — not a simple Plug and Play. A tech is coming today to resolve the issues. And perhaps explain this new fangled technology that comes free with the new free cable box.
    The home office receptionist was confused when we spoke of our VCR machine. VCR?

    Ahhhh, I distinctly remember using paper tape to transfer computer programs from one machine to another. (IBM punch cards?)

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      somebody please ‘like’ me so that I can confirm my email change ‘here’ has been accepted.

      • Rusty Shackleford

        We see you!

      • You’ll always be accepted. 😛

        • Tracy-1ltwoody920

          I’m glad that you are accepting—my new email wasn’t.
          Tried again, I think it took it.
          Will try again to see if my new email receives likes.

          Still waiting for Comcast, due in one hour.

          Went to the Senior Center and tried their pancake breakfast— was ok
          They had a health fair (who knew) barely found parking. All proceeds went to meals on wheels.
          Bought a raffle ticket (donated $5 to Meals)
          And I WON! A $50 gift card to a local eatery!
          Hopefully my luck is running today.
          So, again, please LIKE me.
          And, hopefully, Comcast will resolve the issues quickly and efficiently and effectively.

  22. Hey everyone 🙂 I haven’t posted in a while but I’m still here. Thanks neighbors for visiting! I haven’t done much in game but log in occasionally and poke at the event. It seems like if we had more stuff it would merge well with last year’s creepytown. I’m still waiting for the creative bug to bite.
    In the meantime, I have given up on donut farming entirely as 15k is enough and just by clearing any 4hr job set will yield 15 donuts each time. I’m considering clearing off any visible % boosters (fleets of trikes, billboards, etc.) but keeping my 4hr prison of the haunted KEM as it makes clearing so much faster. Maybe I’ll store all the crapola that I’ve put down wherever and make an effort to do some good design. Still thinking about the golf course.
    I’ve been traveling a lot recently and being home for a Sunday morning of football and dogs is a pretty good thing. I’m heading to Indonesia – I think – on Friday. I like Jakarta but I don’t like the long trip. Got a Switch lite so probably I’ll just spend the long flights sleeping or listening to audiobooks. That seems likely.
    Hope everyone is doing well!

  23. Happy tapping all, in days gone by I spent loads of time on my game and on this site, not so much now, time for a shake up EA, sort the connectivity so I can design and play 👎EA
