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…..

Still no new Simpsons tonight, but they’ll be back next week!

New update hit TSTO this week, Black History Month. What are your initial thoughts? Prizes? Storyline?

How’s your Springfield design 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. Hi. Happy Sunday y’all. I just wanted to thank everyone who sent me a neighbour request. Very kind. I just need EA to fix the visiting glitch now😩. So strange to actually be enjoying the grind to get Friends’ Points. Enjoying it immensely, when I can tap. All quiet over here. Enjoy your day everyone🥰

  2. Hi guys,
    I came back from the dead and started to play again. Love IT! However, the game let me start the mission with Rita Leflour but I can’t continue as the game wont give me the Fallen Diva Apartment.

    EA wants me to issue a ticket from with-in the game, but everytime I press the Get-help button, safari opens instead of what they call a in-game menu. Does anyone know something on how I can start a ticket within the game?

    Best regards

  3. I was checking out the information for Agency Headquarters on the Simpsons Wiki, and it says you can only have one. I have two… is that a glitch, or is the Wiki simply wrong, and it’s OK to have more than one Agency HQ? It’s a cool building, with 4 facades….

    • I have two also (been playing forever). Can’t remember the circumstances about how, but I don’t think it was a glitch.

  4. I did a daily challenge three days ago that sent the characters to Krusty Burger for a 4 hour task. Now every time I log in, they are showing thumbs up complete on the Krusty Burger. I hit the Krusty Burger and get XP points and the cash and the task is now complete however they never leave the Krusty Burger and I can’t send them on other tasks. In the upper left corner I see Apu with a green check mark. I click him it sends me to the Krusty Burger but I can’t get him released. If I go to the Town Hall it shows him still working on the Checking out the new promotion daily task. If I hit that, it sends me back to the Krusty Burger and he is stuck. Anyone else see this? Thanks in advance.

  5. So far behind already – just unlocked Martin’s job. I am usually able to keep up, but on this one they upped the currency needed by quite a bit. Gotten used to being lazy, but my heart isn’t in it anymore. Can’t stop either, though…

  6. It’s so weird that it’s Monday and I still haven’t unlocked the fourth prize in this event. And I’ve been grinding hard on it too. These prize levels are insane and I refuse to use Donuts to speed through them mostly because I need Donuts for actual content. The worst part is, even when I get the fifth prize, I have to do all this again three more times!

    But, oh well. At least I have Golden Goose Realty. That helps sooth any problem.

    • According to the calendar you should be on 1284 Stethoscopes by the end of today so you should’ve unlocked the third prize (Martin’s task) yesterday and have about 234 Stethoscopes out of 400 on the fourth prize. It also helps that when the new set of prizes arrive on Friday you can still continue to earn the Stethoscopes for these prizes in the rest of the event. One great thing about this event is definitely the return of Golden Goose Realty, now we just need an increase on the item limit.

  7. After what seems like a ludicrous amount of grinding I got Martin’s present history project task which I was thinking was a pretty lame prize but right afterwards as I was seeping in disappointment, one of the Spuckler brood, Dubya, (with the eye patch) rolled up. When you tap him, he sits down and bangs a bucket for a few beats. I had a street corner show going and was amused and cheered up immediately. Unfortunately, Dubya’s animation is too brief for me to get a screenshot. Next up- my token will get me the only item in my mystery box- Raheem and Klub Krusty, so I’m looking forward to the next 2 prizes this week.
    In another unexpected treat in TSTO recently, I had groused before about how I enjoyed the animation for Dracula-la-land but only Homer and Ned had tasks there and they are usually busy doing other things. Well Empty Nest Marge happened to be visiting Transylvania when I decided to send her on a romantic dinner, to my delight D land lit up, must fall under restaurant category. [It’s job is filling Nightcaps, so makes sense] She’s been there ever since.
    I know we’re all bored to tears of this same old format and teed off about the amount of grinding required to get the prizes this time around but the premium combos seem like they’ll be cool and some new crazy characters. Hoping a good Valentine’s Day store drops this week. So Happy Tapping Everyone! Welcome home Alissa, hope you had a couple days to rest up after your vacation! 😉

    • I agree with you! It’s the odd little “favorite animations” that continue to make me smile.

    • I got Klub Krusty and the Mighty Pigs Practice Rink in my box so I got some designs in mind for those two items when I get them (the practice rink is going behind the Skating Rink in my town because they’re from the same episode). There’s actually several characters like Wise Guy, Weird Al, Lucille Botz, Don Brodka, Kathy from Personnel, Circus Acrobat and The Ghost of Christmas Past that go to buildings like restaurants, shops and homes (there are some bar locations) on their tasks.

  8. I already have Jay g and his house (pretty sure the goose is walking around somewhere) but I am being offered the bundle in my event page any idea why/if I should/shouldn’t get

    • Just a glitch. Ignore it

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Yeah, I have it offered to me as well, but if I try to buy it, it won’t let me, and a message pops up saying you can only have one Jay G mansion placed. Looks like a coding error. There is probably an extra item in the new bundle and this why it shows as available.

  9. Well, with 202 tiles, the Golden Goose let me know it would just grind regular currency as I had enough tiles to fulfill the unpurchased land

  10. So for the first time ever I have been hit with a very beneficial glitch. My daily task was to send Springfielders to Check out Krusty Burger’s Latest Promotion. I sent pretty much my entire town. Some went to my main Krusty Burger, but for some reason a ton went to the one I set up in my Krustyland. When I went to clear them a few walked out, then went right back in. The building doesn’t show anyone as being in it, yet when I leave the game and come back everyone is ready to be cleared again. I keep getting the 4 hour payout over and over. I turned on the collider and in the last day and a half I have made over $100,000,000 and earned well over 100 donuts. Going to ride this baby as long as I can.

  11. Random thought. The last good event was the zoo event. I love the zoo I created in my town. The event gave a chance to create a cohesive, logical and beautiful zoo.

    • there were actually a few of them that were in the same level…as soon as they had us move Krustyland to our Springfield side, things were great for a bit. Amusement park, zoo, and even the spooky Halloween bit. All good.

  12. I wish they had long term goals for us Tappers that have been playing the game for years now. I have so much accumulated cash and % bonus from over the years I don’t find the game to be a challenge anymore

  13. It says that Jay G is supposed to be in the yearbook, but I can never find him.
    Is he really there?

  14. Happy Sunday All!

  15. Happy tapping all, not enjoying the game or the event format, will need to find a way to overcome this, have a great week, I will be job hunting, hate the work I do, 😞🤞

  16. Thank goodness GGR (as it’s known around these parts, or so I’ve been told 😎) is available. Population density was becoming an issue; guessing have over 150 tiles to unlock now. Now about that item limit thing…


  17. Is there a visiting glitch going on? I haven’t visited my neighbors in a while, but had some time this morning so I decided to do so. There was nothing to click on on every neighbor I visited except for one. Last played ranged from several hours to several weeks.

    • Hi Greg Jablynski.
      I’ve been having the same problem for sometime now and I’m afraid I’m going to lose my great neighbours. I am able to tap 1 or 2 of you every now and then. But that’s it.
      I miss you guys and girls. I’ll keep trying.


      • Sometimes going ahead then back to the neighbor will work. I can’t tap on over half of my neighbors. Contacted EA, got a variety of reasons and things to try. None helped.

    • Yes, there has been a glitch for awhile now. One way to get partially found this is to tap on the buildings that can be vandalised as these still respond to tapping provided that no one else has beat you to it.

    • GREG J – Same here. It’s EA. I tested it with my two other games. I can tap some of my very low level neighbours…..sometimes……🧡X

  18. I really really really want to be able to tap on a building and see who has jobs there and be able to select from them.

    I also want a better way of navigating my characters than having to click through the entire list one by one.

    I also want to be able to put anything anywhere. Why on earth would someone decide I can’t put something on dirt or snow?
