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…..

No new Simpsons tonight, but don’t worry they’ll be back next week with a new episode! (the Christmas one…)

Still, no Christmas update in TSTO, do you think it’ll hit this week?  What do you think we’ll see content-wise?

How’s your holiday decorating/shopping going?  Finishing up?  Just getting started?  Or waiting until the night before to do it all?

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 was 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 cant unlock the quest for Santa’s Little Helper to lead the sleigh. Any hints?

  2. Ooh. I see that my 4th July collection is no longer complete🤔

  3. Did anyone notice the changes to the Chtulu monument and the jazz guy cloud following the update? They are now simply freeze frames from the show haha is this just a glitch? Or is it a sneaky coding add in by someone?

  4. Having reached the hallowed level 939 I’m seriously thinking of nuking my Springfield and rebuilding with more structure but … there might be snow on the way then I’d be questing and adding decorations to stored buildings and … auughh!

    How long does it take to rebuild I’m asking myself?

    • I nuked mine @ lvl 130 I believe. It has taken FOREVER for me to get things back down how I want, and I still have so much in storage. The higher level you are and the more content you have means more work in rebuilding. Good luck if you go this way! I recommend group saving the things you like, then just shuffling things around as you see fit.

      • Still going to nuke but … after the snow has cleared I think. *grin* I’ll build up my available land first though.

    Leaving my characters free
    In the meantime….
    My garage door opener gets installed

  6. Got crazy cat lady, Homer, Marge and Maggie and Santa’s little helper on there sleigh dutys, just need the snow and Christmas event to start, 🛷🐕🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄☃️⛄❄️❄️❄️❄️

  7. OK EVERYONE….. The well informed voices in my head are telling me that the snow to Springfield is coming soon, maybe sooner than you think… or later than you think, it cannot fail, we have been sure many times before, I am literally getting tired of winning! being so right all the time. the exact date for the snow is in a few days, with many, many, many new content that you can enjoy with your well, hard earned, farmed donuts. no doubt about it, as I mentioned the exact date, you are excited as I am. and you should be. SNOW is here!!!! sooner or later than you think..

    oh and just for context… the voices in my head are liars… only one is telling the truth… but I can’t figure out which one that is.. until I make the wrong choice I find who wasn’t lying… am looking for a new J. O. B. and maybe a new city to live in.. I want to go to France to live… claim my 2nd citizenship or nationality… my great-gran-dad/family was French and I can claim it.. so… am just rambling now. I do that from time to time.. like an old man in his 80’s.. or from the 80’s… ok l8r.

  8. Just a friendly reminder that if Tappers want to see snow (or an Xmas Event sooner) I strongly urge voicing yourselves on the official Facebook Page

    Or Twitter

    It’s easy to grumble grumble grumble on here (I’m guilty of this), but it’s best if EA sees what you have to say immediately (I tend to playfully heckle, or compliment).

    Zero expectations means EA can’t let me down (I just farm 🍩’s and obtain content from the Mystery Box until something new comes along)

    • I agree but unfortunately I emptied the Mystery Box about a month ago so really only donut farming. My town is in a mess though, gotta start tidying it up.
      Here’s hoping EA brings us Christmas cheer this Wednesday.

      • John Millar

        Sounds like you and I are reaching the point where it’s time for a B Game to start over on (and yes no later then Wednesday IF there is going to be a Event this month on TSTO, any later? I think Tappers are going to ignore the Game App for personal pursuits involving the holidays)

      • Hell, my town is a mess too. The plan is to get all land and then maybe redesign. Not really redesign, but put things in order. Nuking isn’t really an option. I will end up with about10500 items to put back (without i don’t know how many i store already), so no, no nuking.
        It will take a lot of time tho. I emptied every box, so all that crap is around…
        Meanwhile i wish we had some snow in our little towns. Not here, (i hate to drive in the snow); as i’m typing we have already some storm (rather heavy winds and rain).

  9. Severe Lag.

    Lately, in my B Springfield I’ve been experiencing severe lag which is interesting because my A Springfield which is 2 years older and has more content does not experience lag. I haven’t even emptied the Yearbook yet in B Springfield. Since yesterday, I have stopped sending characters on tasks except for the Monorail and I still get lag. I think this might be the problem in my town. Does anyone else have this problem? Since I have Little Lisa’s Recycling Plant, I guess I’ll stop. Plus I have over 2000 of each type of track. Due to lag and item limits, I may just change to being an event only player.

  10. I found an interesting gallery from a few years ago about TSTO created by someone who is/was a game artist for TSTO, it looks like an interesting browse especially for some of the images. I wonder what everyone thinks of these.

    In the past Snow has usually arrived by December 5th. Game developers are really slacking for two events in a row…. Maybe we should just be glad to have any event at all after that last longgg lapse in events. O well. Pray for Snow ❄️☃️🎅 🎄

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      Blame Global Warming

    • I just think they don’t have as many employees on it as they did. And as Alissa has wrote about many times, this is a massive update, every single item in the game has to be programmed for snow. I was anxious that last week before the Halloween event dropped, but drop it finally did. I’ve only just started my own decorating and haven’t even begun my card writing yet, so I’ll cut EA some slack. Maybe put out some TSTO decorations while I’m watching the Seahawks game.

  12. Humbug!
    All I the only person not missing the snow? I’ve always thought it was there for too long anyway!

  13. How my dog celebrated her birthday .

    1) Rise at 5:30 am wet – nose the master .

    2) Go out and pee on the world.

    3) Make poopy.

    4) Sniff poopy.

    5) Seriously think about eating poopy .

    6) Eat funny – looking bug instead .

    7) Throw up bug parts on living room rug .

    8) Drink out of magic well .

    9) Sleep for 17 hours. Start all over again .

    See ya bye . 👽

  14. I think you have to have Marge and Maggie flying the sleigh first then it should open up. That’s how mine seems to work.

  15. Hello, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas! Can s0meone explain how I can get Santa’s Little Helper quest to fly the sleigh to activate?

  16. I need snow in Springfield! It’s past a want and now it’s a need! Bart and Milhouse look pretty stupid driving to snowmobile with out snow ❄️ ☃️❄️ I’m just impatiently waiting for our Christmas update. Christmas is in full swing at my house. House is decorated, tree up, my husband has all the presents for our girls and his mother wrapped already. I’m not as efficient as he his. Hope everyone had a peaceful week. Happy Day Friends and Happy Tappin! ❄️☃️❄️🎄❄️🎄❄️☃️❄️

  18. I’m frustrated 🙁 I have a new Springfield and am trying to add friends as part of the questline, but can’t. It won’t let me. When it find the friend I am looking for (via EA Account name) and hit ADD it just says “Failed to send friend request. Please retry”. I get the a similar message when I try delete friends from my other Springfields. Tried on Android and on Bluestacks and get the same problem from all 3 of my games.

    Is it just me? Any suggestions?

    • I get the same thing. Hopefully it will be fixed with next update

    • effingpot

      It’s EA having problems with Origin (and it’s all over Twitter @EAHelp on all Platforms) don’t ask me when / if this gets solved … if EA cared it would be “one and done” months ago 😮


    Would look better with snow EA.

  20. Happy tapping all, still waiting on the snow to hit my Springfield 🤶🎅🎄⛄☃️🎄⛄☃️🎄

  21. Help!! I literally can’t play my game due to the constant crashing! Everytime I click on a completed charachter job it crashes, this happens every single time now, any advice? Im on level 600 with loads of characters but feel like I need to give up even though I’ve been play ing tapped out for years…..ive opened a case at EA. Thank you.

    • Check you have enough resources on you device, loads of memory and space needed, clear your cache and delete any apps you don’t need.

  22. I just wanted to say that I LOVE ALL of my fellow Tappers. It’s like we’re all family and I wish you all a VERY MERRY Christmas and I hope we all have an amazing Holiday season.
