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…..

Nearing the final week of Abe’s in Toyland, are you finished with week 3?  Ready for week 4?  Thoughts?

How was your Christmas?  Festivus? Hanukkah? Kwanzaa? Do anything fun? Get anything fun? Still talking to your family?

Only a few more days left in 2019.  Thoughts on the year?  Making any resolutions?  What do you hope is different in 2020? The same?

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)   Don’t forget Springfield Showoff, featuring your Abe’s in Toyland…or just Christmas…designs!  Deadline to get those designs in is January 7th!  (email them to

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. Sorry if this has already been discussed, but is anyone else having an issue where there’s nothing to tap in their neighborhood’s towns? These are all people who have played in the last several hours or day. I’m only able to tap on something about every five or six houses. Only happening since this event started.

    • Think it is only neighbours who are playing this event who you cant see. Those who haven’t been playing or have the update you can see.

  2. I seem to have missed a 4th July character?
    I noticed there was a blank/greyed out character when scrolling through the lists of characters in the inventory. Has anyone else spotted this? He’s holding a longer pistol.
    I’m a daily player and always buy a character if it’s offered. Super surprised I missed it.
    I have a pic but can’t attach it here?

  3. So I was a daily player for years (started my Springfield beginning of 2014) lost interest over the past year and stopped playing altogether as the seasonal quests or whatever you want to call them have changed for the worst for some reason. What is with that? I thought I’d update and give it another go this Christmas as usually they pull out all the stops for Halloween and Christmas (was always my favourite) but alas it’s still the same. Boring quest lines with rubbish prizes. There’s no engagement whatsoever. Nothing that makes you want to stick around and see how the story pans out. What happened to tasks that included going to your neighbours etc. Having your Springfield over run with zombies and what not. WHAT IS GOING ON!!

  4. Whew!! What a long ass marathon of a holiday/bday week!!! All good….kids were all happy so that makes it a win!🎅 I managed to be gifted tickets to see Gabriel Iglesias (Fluffy) in March and *drum roll* concert tix for the Def Lepard/Motley Crue/Poison/Joan Jett in August!! Holy crap! Now i really gotta slim down back to groupie size if i wanna look the part for THAT trip down nostalgia road!!!! Wooooooo! Bring on the resolutions!!!

  5. I was hoping EA would bring back the opportunity to get Christmas lights for the houses. I haven’t seen it offered yet.
    Happy and safe New Year everyone!

  6. Happy Birthday Patric from one Xmas/ NY baby to another- hope you are enjoying The Big Easy. I am celebrating my turning a half century today back in my hometown of Albuquerque, NM. Going to be outnumbered by my 49’er friend fans tonight. Go Hawks!
    Sooper excited to go to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe tomorrow.
    Hope everyone is having a peaceful, relaxing season. Happy Tapping everyone and have a fun, safe 2020!

    • Happy happy 🎂 2 U!!!

      • Hey, I missed your birthday last week, sorry, must have had other things on my mind.

        I saw def leopard at the beginning of their pyromania tour. I a totally was more interested in the opening act, Krokus, they rocked a little bit harder and a little bit better. Everything that def leopard tried to do, krokus had already done, and better. They ended up getting kicked off of the tour (they had a reputation of getting kicked off of tours due to them being a great live band). I am not saying def leopard was not entertaining, because they were.

        I saw Joan Jett open for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers back around the turn of the millennium. She came out on stage bald, nonetheless, at that point it could have been considered a nostalgia tour. It was a good show.

        • Lol….im an 80s girl but have only seen the crue….and that was in 1997 at a really small venue. Im hoping all these guys can still put on a great show! Im so freaking excited! Thanx for the bday greeting!….it was just on the 27th so its not really late!😊

  7. Hey there. Was wondering if if anyone else has had issues with Krusty over the past week? When I send people to do tasks via the Office of Unemployment he doesnt start one, like he has a daily task to do or something. Ive tried storing/unstoring him (what a nightmare that was as I didnt heed the warning that all 13 of my Krusty Burgers would be stored too :/) but even that didnt help



  8. Has anyone else noticed that when you send all characters on the same time task, that Krusty isn’t included? I’ve been sending all non event characters on 24 hours but he doesn’t go. He’s leftover and I have to select him manually. Krusty doesn’t have any active waiting tasks in the taskbook. I’ll check again to make sure. Wondering if it’s just me or am I missing something.

  9. Hi Alissa hope you and your family had a great Christmas

  10. Two days in a row now I’ve had to download a 1200+mb TSTO update, I don’t get it.

    • issue may be the lack of space on your phone or tablet. That usually happens to people with too little space to the game to load and run.
      You may want to look at how much space you have left .. and remove some music, video’s, photos, and apps you dont use.

  11. Happy Sunday everyone
    Enjoy the Holiday Break
    Be safe Tuesday evening
    Be smart Tuesday evening
    And wisely welcome in the last year of the current decade
    Yes children, there was no year ‘0’

  12. Happy tapping all, hope you all had a great Christmas, ☃️⛄🎁🎁🎁🎅, have a good time for the bells and hope some better improvement for the game in 2020, 🎆🎆🗽🗽🎆🎆 happy new year to all 🎉🎉🎉

  13. TSTO left a post about Aaron Burr on their Facebook page. Anyone know anything about this?

  14. I’m just tired…. I have no motivation to play anymore. It has just become a boring grind. Send the same 5 – 9 characters, every 4 hours, collect a bunch of uninspired buildings and costumes that I have no room for, and don’t fit into any design. Repeat for 4 weeks.

    Sorry to be a bummer like that – i miss friend missions, the digs, finding and tapping “visitors” (like concert goers, zomies, brutus, etc), collecting different currencies to craft different things – heck, I even miss the battles (as glitchy as they sometimes were). I used to look forward to new events, for new things to do. Now, I have been sentenced to the purgatory of “send the same 7 characters in the same 4 hour mission, into infinity”. I may not lay much longer.

    But I AM thankful for all of you, getting us through all those cooler events, and glitches. Just sad to see what it has become

    • Winner, Winner
      Whiner, whiner?
      Naw, I agree.
      I miss being required to visit neighbors. Finding and Tapping on ‘alien’ visitors.
      And being sooo new and able to collect soooo few Event Currency that all I could purchase was a foot stool and not the Entire Bedroom Suite.
