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…..

Sorry, this is so late.  I completely forgot to post it!

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode, what do you think will happen in the new episode?

Act 2 of Simpsons Wrestling hit on Friday, thoughts on the second act so far? Thoughts on the event?

Another day of social distancing.  How’s it working out for you?  Going stir crazy yet?  I think I’ve moved well past stir crazy…

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)  

Stay safe.  Wash your hands.  Social distance.    Remember, we’re all in this together.

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’ve gotten to the point where the golden goose realty no longer gives tokens, only money…. for folks with limited land, what are folks doing with their villages when they get new stuff from events? I don’t feel like I have a “Junked” Springfield. I try to keep organized, but the lack of new land has me concerned. I try to review areas already decorated and update those but I’m doubting my decorating abilities. 😂

  2. I think the easter whell from that event years ago may have been sent back up from the satan pit decoration but regenerated into the eternal spinning donut on the load screen.

  3. Anybody have a problem with duplication of event tasks? I have had to do one of the tasks twice and received the wrestlers dressing room twice. Its almost as if the game servers did not save the information when I first completed the task. Just wondering if this is a common issue?

    • My husband had similar issue… he put people out fir 4 hours and got no credit currency when completed. He basically he to duplicate efforts and do same 4 hours again. Worked second time.

  4. Re-addicted by wrestling

    Hi Addicts, glad this Thread is back, I have some questions: Do you knowing there is a solution for one of the following problems?

    – Chili Cauldron shows no chili anymore -> no Insanity mode available

    – Office of Unemployment does not get every character do something, API, Skinner, CBG… are not triggered by it.

    – Railyard does not award prizes as it once did, no matter how much I recycle.

    • Re-addicted by wrestling

      Little typo, I meant „Apu“, not „API“ (that was an autocorrect error)

    • Some characters just don’t participate in special tasks (event, daily challenges that involve sending all townspeople on such tasks) and they seem to be the ones ignored by the Unemployment office. The wiccans and the tourists, for example.

      Also any character who has a highlighted quest task available is ignored. Mr. Burns is always ignored for me because I refuse to spend more money to send him on any task involving that money mountain… If a character has more than one outfit, you might have to scroll through all the outfits before you find the unfulfilled quest task.

  5. Day 4 with the swirling donut of doom or the Bart server screen. I’m going through withdrawal. Lol.

    Well from the others comments i obviously have to try and play when i get up in the middle of the night for the bathroom. Lol lol.

  6. Occasionally when listening to music I’ll go through phases where I just listen to 1 particular artists for a long periods of days at the moment it happens to be Lewis capaldi however he only has 1 album out you’d be surprised how many times it can be enjoyed in an 8hr work shift.

  7. Steve the Easter Bunny

    We need more things to do for late game players like myself. Or maybe creat a new currency. My cash maxed out the limit and my xp boost is really high from years of playing this game.

  8. I keep getting the Bart screen, it’s even worse than the confinement! It takes literally an hour to get into the game. At certain times of the day. Has anyone else got the same problem? Plus the token not honoured with the donuts is shameful. Not very impressed. C’mon EA, you can do better!

    • Yes, with EVERYONE on the internet during home quarantine access to several Games (mobile, console, computer) requiring internet connection is complicated …. and this is why I Tap at late hours (12am – 2am), or early hours (5am – 6am) so I don’t have that problem (if it’s not internet? then it’s just EA can’t maintain a Network for the amount of Tappers trying to Login at the same time).

      Yes, call it exactly what it is – dumb that you Grind for an Event Prize (the Token) but get nada! It would be an easy fix, but I don’t expect EA Bob / Babs to do so (or it would’ve been dealt with in Act 1) with potentially a % of EA staff is probably home quarantined and / or furloughed.

  9. I’ve not been able to get in the app all day. Just spinning donut on start screen. Help!!

    • I am using an older Kindle Fire and I had the same trouble as you, to fix it I had to uninstall and then reinstall the game, since I’ve done that I’ve had very few problems.

  10. Has EA stopped supporting older devices again? Cant get passed the spinning donught on my oldest tablet , 3 year old samsung tab 4!

    • If that reliable Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Tablet (released way back in 2014) is still on Android OS 4.1 Kit Kat? Then it’s definitely time to upgrade (anything using older than Android OS 7.0 Nougat isn’t going to get Game App Support).

      The 8″ Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019) is on sale (with Android OS 9.0 Pie)

  11. A co-worker went to the post office at night time .
    He found a old man in his 80s laying on the ground with a broken leg needing help .
    The man was in shock and didn’t realize he had broken his leg and was bleeding .

    The sad thing is, my coworker said there was a man sitting there in his car just watching the whole time .

    Come on people we’ve got to do better than this .

    See ya bye . 👽

  12. Does anyone know what happened to Lady Duff? I need her for a quest but she is not a character nor a skin for Duffman.

    • Lady Duff is a Character Skin for Duffman (released way back in 2015), I obtained her as a bundle with Duffman + Duff Brewery last year in the Mystery Box (do you have the Character Skin? If not, did you check the Mystery Box?) 🤔

      • I don’t have the skin nor is it in the mystery box 😒

        • The Lady Duff Character Skin will return eventually …. it took this Event for Mexican Duffman to return.

          Meanwhile, keep 🍩 farming and wait to see what new Premium Content we get throughout this Event (these Character Building Combos have been great).

          Stay Safe 👍🏻

  13. Well, I already explored Simpsons Intro / Couch Gags, but I feel it’s worth bringing up again in Open Thread (got a favourite? do share!) Stay Safe & yep, I’m done saying Stay Sane (we’re all a lil’ crazy and that’s ok!) – but hey there’s one of the funniest Character Visual Tasks up seen there! 🤓👍🏻

  14. Happy tapping all, stay save, wear a hat, my tokens disappeared?? Go figure, who cares, games a duddddd, finished act 1 last Sunday, long wait for act 2, can’t remember act 1, totally bless new York, numbers lost there per day mind blowing, we loose 50-80 a day, so sad new York.

    Anyhow game just doesn’t add up and totally pointless, sorry 5th week on lockdown and am tired.

    All the best one and all stay safe, isolate and watch patrics video, will save us all 😛🤪😜😁

    • Patric is spot on …. I just haven’t submitted a reply to his post because they come across as too Political (can’t help that, too many new “?” ‘s being brought up in the news each day). 👍🏻

    • Yeah, my tokens have both disappeared as well. You use to be able to get donuts with them but now they just vanish. What’s even the point?

    • Yeah, my tokens have both vanished as well. What’s the point? You use to be able to get donuts with them at least. Now…just gone.

  15. Does anyone else have the bug where all of your springfielder’s go to KEM on their own.
    And Skinner is stuck.

    • Store the building, then set it back in place. I have seen countless people with the same issue and that seems to work for them.

      Good luck!

    • The task going to go pick up milk seems to have caused trouble in previous years as well. They apparently never fixed the glitch, but storing the building and the replacing it from storage definitely works now and before.

  16. Where were you! Why’d it take soooo long open the thread!?
    Recent comic had an old guy complaining
    “I hate Mondays “
    “It’s Friday,”
    “What do I know, I’m retired”
    Well, I’m retired. Every day is the same. With the lockdown, there are no school buses, no neighbors starting their car up. People are walking around on the sidewalk, except today where it is cold and cloudy.

    I need my Sunday open thread.

    You are supposed to be here to meet MY needs.

    I could go on, but I’ve already filled my daily obnoxious quotient.

    Happy Sunday everyone!
    Off to make my monthly grocery 🛍 🛒 list.
    Fingers crossed, only one more time after this event and things will ease up, a bit.

    Thoughts and prayers for the heavily and negative impacted. And for the families of the 750,000+ who have been infected.

    • I didn’t know what day it was 🤷‍♀️

      • I am embarrassed to say while even going back to work …. I lose track of what day it is ….. because the scheduled programmes normally watched on 📺 are not broadcasting new Episodes (that’s our calendar – lol!). So glad for new Simpsons Episode tonight! 😉

      • That works for me!

  17. I earned the event currency token but the screen to select what to use it on is now gone. Any suggestions?

    • Same here, can’t find them anywhere.

    • Probably means that you have everything now then and EA aren’t giving away 12 donuts this time so the token prize becomes pointless.

      • ding ding ding ding! Your answer is correct!

        EA got a twist to the Token Rule (pun intended)! if you have the Gold Wrestling Mystery Box available? cash in said Token for a Prize! if you got everything in that Gold Wrestling Mystery Box already? It’s not in your Game’s Menu (and you get nada!)

        Feels worseless Grinding for nothing and that sentiment has been blowing up on the TSTO Facebook & EA Help Twitter Accounts (at the same time, we’re lucky this Game App got an update, but this is a legit Gripe).

  18. Happy Sunday
    ‘Bout bloody time this opened up
    More later
