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 what were your thoughts on last week’s Christmas episode…”Bobby, It’s Cold Outside” ?

ICYMI…Addicts Live was all-new yesterday! The Addicts were back talking about Abe’s in Toyland and spreading Christmas cheer.  Check it out here if you missed it. 

We’re in the thick of week 2 of Abe’s in Toyland, thoughts on the event?

The final countdown to Christmas is on!  Only a few more days until the big day, have you finished your shopping yet?

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. Anyone else having a problem with Alice Glick’s 4 hr pay tribute job? The original brown house still stands up & the front doors gnash side to side, but she is not in front of the house tossing a kid in.

  2. Christmas eve here and wishing all tsto addicts a very merry Christmas, May the snow be high hohoho 🎄🎄🎄🎄🌨️🌨️🌨️🌨️❄️❄️❄️❄️🤶🎅⛄⛄⛄☃️☃️☃️

  3. I just meant that the amount of XP points awarded per vehicle seems to be less. Maybe I’m imagining it, but it looks like I get less chances for donuts with the collided on when I buy those vehicles. Maybe it’s just me..

  4. Ok, so I know I’ll be in the minority here, but I don’t play this silly little game for the events. Yes, this one is a disappointment. And weird. But I play for the little things that make me laugh, like Buddha riding motorcycle, or Kirk chasing his acorn. Or my Krustyland with a path to the witch’s house. You can call me a bliss ninny all you want, but I find the events a bonus to a game I already enjoy. So I’ll keep playing till it doesn’t make me smile anymore. Hope all of you find your happy this season!

    • That is a lovely attitude…and one we should all adopt for the future.

    • I am much the same way… I play the game because it’s fun. If an even happens.. bonus. After 3 months of constantly losing donuts due to an EA issue I still played, most would have scrapped the game. Also after 7 years of playing it just becomes a daily route.
      It’s a game.. it’s suppose to be fun, entertaining, and frustrating all at the same time.

  5. Anybody know if the XP has decreased for the Bloodmobile and the Rat Trap truck? I feel like I’m getting less bang for the buck suddenly…

    • Carmen (gameid5000)

      XP consider expired?

    • Sounds like your XP Collider Multiplier ran out and you have to recharge it.
      If you are not seeing Dark Blue Numbers when collecting from anything.. then it has run out and you are on normal XP collections.

      • Sorry for the delay in my reply, but this was happening with the collider up and running. Last week I got five chances at donuts after buying 7 trucks, this week it was 3 chances. And my bonus percentage was higher this week than last week. It’s a mystery.

  6. How many playable characters are there? I have 447 characters doing tasks right now. Are there more?

  7. Does Bob Seger have the best Christmas Cover by a classic rock singer. His version of The Little Drummer Boy. My vote is Yes. Plus works well with Christmas lights lol

  8. Anyone having problems login in tonight 7:40PM eastern time? I am confident my login and password are correct. It keeps saying an error occurred try again and I do but it won’t let me on… seeing if anyone else having issues?

  9. It’s just good to know that I’m not the only one. I visit towns every single day and it’s frustrating when there is nothing to tap even when it says actions 3/3. Love youse all!! Merry Xmas and happy new year 🐸🐸

    The feeling is mutual …. EA epic failed this December and there is no defending the various missed opportunities / mistakes \ Game App issues left unfixed!

    I have enjoyed obtaining Characters that are Simpson’s Family Members (praise Safi for his Voting of Content we most desired is actually getting what we want to appear finally!) …. but I gather what’s coming over the next 2 Weeks is going to be Hit or Miss (more Misses then Hits!)

  11. Happy Holidays
    Merry Christmas
    Happy Hanukkah
    Praise Kwanaza
    Blessed Winter Solstice
    It’s Krampus Time
    (an all other Celebrations)

    From me Household to Yours

    No new Episode of the Simpsons tonight on FOX, so it’s watching The Witcher premiere on Netflix (until both Lucifer and Sabrina return with new Episodes).

    Thank you dear Neighboreenos for visiting my Springfield (I shall do so on Monday). For those inquiring “why can’t I Tap Buildings in my Neighbor’s Towns” – well you can! No, you won’t always see Buildings available, but it’s possible in a % of your Neighbors and Friends Springfields ( it’s a glitch that EA won’t acknowledge, please don’t let it stop you from Tapping, eventually there has to be a fix …. but it would be acknowledged if all of you can complain to EA – @EAHelp on Twitter, official Facebook Page – or else EA will ignore it).

    So, have a nice Sunday, and be safe out there! 😊

  12. I’m really disappointed in the lack of Christmas content. With the exception of a gingerbread couch and a group of elves, there has been no “Christmas” in the current game. Where are new decorations and additions to Santa’s Christmas vilage???

    • I was hoping to get more Christmas lights for the houses and buildings. Also, some of the large lawn bells with the red ribbons. It would have been great if they had come up with other Lawn Ornaments…ex: snow men and Santa’s made up of multi colored lights. Among other Xmas stuff. To bad eA grinche’s spoiled it. Boo !!!!!!! 😵😵😎

  13. Thank you God for giving me one more year to do what I need to do . It’s my birthday .
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years one and all.

    See ya bye . 👽

  14. First off.. Merry Christmas to all the Site Admins and to all the players

    I guess Christmas is really here. Since the end of August I was not able to hold onto donuts that I collected. It would keep the ones that I got from Daily Challenges, Finding Maggie, and the Monorail. All building and jobs and farming I would get donuts, it would calculate and show in the donut count but, when I left the game and came back or when to neighbors and came back all of the donuts I just collected were gone. and I was back to the number I had before collecting.
    after a few calls to EA Help.. in mid September they couldn’t figure why the count after collecting would disappear. Then after the 4th call the donuts stayed.. Only to start disappearing again a couple of weeks later. Two more calls to EA Help and they still couldn’t figure it out.
    On Dec 18th I noticed that when I collected from buildings and jobs.. my donut count stayed. So for the next few days the count went up and stayed. So on Saturday I decided to try farming again. Low and behold donuts were staying and my count was going up.
    Finally something good was happening with this game.
    I am attributing this to a glitch in one of the Daily Challenges.. where you send all springfielders to Krusty;s for something.. and you go to collect the springfielders don’t actually get released and are shown as being able to collect. The only way to stop this loop is to put the original Krusty Burger building in storage and then put it back.
    So for future Daily challenges that have all springfielders do something at Krustys I will only put in the 5 that are needed and leave the rest to wander around. I thought of putting the other on other jobs but that would mean I would have to do that one by one as the Unemployment office won’t add them to other tasks.
    So Merry Christmas to ME.. I finally get to farm and earn donuts and be able to keep them. Whoo Hoo.

      First, read my comment below to Lisa Rhodes
      Second, understand the fertilizer that flows from my fingers
      Third — Try taking a bath 🛀 once in a while!!

    • Its a glitch. If u know where the buildings are in ur friends’ towns that u can vandalize, find them and tap on them….they still work even tho u don’t see the little spray can.👍😊

  19. Wishing everyone who plays this silly little game a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best and good health in 2020. 🎄🎊🥂
    Thank you to all my neighbors who are still trying to visit despite the glitch. It always makes my day seeing your tag. 😊👏🏻
    Special thanks and best wishes to the TSTO Addicts and their families who help us navigate this game everyday. ❤️

  20. Tracy-1ltwoody920

    All my party and gift purchase obligations are finished
    All the neighbor goodies are completed and delivered.
    Food stuffs and pantry items are taken care of
    Raining, but that is due to clear in an hour — per forecast and RADAR, so we can decide to head out and brave the maddening crowd for two minor household items.
    I have a roof over my head and food in my belly and money in the sufficient bank.
    I hope life is as good for y’all.

  21. How come there is nothing to tap on in my neighbors towns? This has been going on for over a week. No matter when I check the towns there’s nothing to tap.. is anyone else having this issue?? It’s really weird. Been playing this game for years and have never had this problem before..

    • Tracy-1ltwoody920

      It is happening to me as well.
      Sometimes there is nothing available in all the towns, while sometimes only a handful of towns have something.

    • Same here. I feel horrible about it as I have neighbors I visit daily. They’re still visiting me even though I haven’t been able to tap on their towns. I hope some of my neighbors are reading this and understand that I’m not ignoring them.

      • Susan C. (Suski33)

        I feel the same. That’s the worst of it for me. I have neighbors visiting, whom I visit daily, and I’m unable to reciprocate.😞 I, too, hope they know it’s not for lack of trying!😳Ho, ho, ho.☃️ Well..all the same: Merry, merry to all Tappers everywhere!

    • From what I understand when playing and collecting in neighbours towns is if they are not playing and are not collecting the handshake on their side of the game it will not reset the dollar sign in their town when you go there. So if they stopped playing their town will be depleted of collections.
      To check to see if they are playing go to your friends list and see when was the last time they played.
      I had some that I couldn’t collect.. then I went to check to see when they last played and some of them were 6 months to a year. So I just toasted them. No point in having them if they are no participating

      • You’re correct, but in addition to those who have stopped playing, there is a glitch. Even people who are still playing and who have cleared their town still don’t have any dollar signs to click on. It’s so frustrating.

    Happy Sunday everyone

  23. Happy tapping all ⛄⛄❄️❄️🎅🤶and a happy Christmas, have fun and enjoy 🎁🎁🎁🎄🎄🎄.
