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…..

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode, what do you think will happen in the new episode?  Are you excited for Part 2?

Act 3 of Simpsons Wrestling is nearing the end…as Act 4 starts up Tuesday morning.  Have you finished the prize track?

Another day of social distancing.  How’s it working out for you?  Some states here are opening up, while others aren’t even showing signs of being close to opening up…curse all of you who can get hair cuts!

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. Today I got the message that I have enough land tokens for all available land and my GGR is reverting to grind currency.

    I have 468 land tokens and GGR now earns 300 cash/12 hours.

    Not sure how many “free” tiles I have left to buy, but I only went round the edges to see how big it was.

    • I think you have 468 pieces of land left to buy since you can’t earn any extra land tokens if you have enough to buy all the unpurchased bits of land.

      • I bought all the remaining land and had about 40 tokens left. I can now change the remaining tokens for donuts, but can’t see how many tokens are available.

        • The only way to see how many land tokens you have is if you go over a unpurchased piece of land and tap “unlock”, the “land upgrade” screen appears and in the top left corner of that screen should say how many land tokens you have. Since you bought all the remaining land, you can’t get the “land upgrade” screen to appear unless EA released more land or they add another way of viewing how many land tokens you have.

  2. I’m on my iPad. Game keeps asking me to login and keeps downloading an 1864mb download update. Any ideas to fix this?

    • Try uninstalling and reinstalling. Also could be an issue with free space on your device. I usually recommend at least 8gb free for tsto

  3. Where do you get Lady Duff? Bought Mexican duffman but I can’t do the quest because I don’t have lady duff and she is not in the yearbook or available to buy.

    • Matthew Mitchell

      Lady Duff is a costume for Duffman. For me, they came together, and I think I got that character through the yearbook.

    • I believe it’s a skin for diff man so you will need him free

  4. I recently noticed that my GGR is no longer giving me land tokens. I am no where near maxed out on land yet. I’ve tried storing it and putting it back to no avail. Has anyone else noticed this issue? Any help would be helpful.
    Cheers Tappers!! Stay Safe.

  5. I’m in Ireland and I’m a regular player if tapped out. Our lock down has being extended for another 2 weeks and our death rate is going down. Just 16 today, brings to over 1600 deaths . Being in a lockdown situation works and so does social distancing. Haven’t lost one family member yet and hopefully I wont either

  6. Albertio Tartloch

    i almost have all land free, should i put the golden goose in inventory before it changes to donuts for reward

  7. Happy tapping all, what day is it, 7th week of lockdown, game keeps asking what age I am, annoying to say the least, I could get used to this lockdown as long as they open my local bar, social distancing as long as I could socialise, just me and a proper pint 🍺👴🍻
    As for the game been waiting a few days for act 4 but honestly taken a long break after this but will still see me here, spend more time here than playing tsto.
    Be good, stay safe, wash your hands and sanitise 🌈😁

    Has anyone else had the never ending spinning donut when trying to log in with a fire tablet? My droid phone connects just fine though, just prefer the larger screen. So frustrating!

    • Yep, high server use due to the world lockdown.

      • Matthew Mitchell

        Hmm, that just started not connecting a couple days ago, but didn’t consider everyone being home. I’m still working, and wife to be still working so life is kinda almost normal. Thanks for the update though.

    • Matthew Mitchell

      Out of frustration, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game on my tablet and it’s working again. Long process of downloading updates but glad to be able to use the tablet again. The fact that I have not seen lots of others with the same problem led me to believe there was a big in my tablet, not a widespread issue.

  9. Do you have an idea what can be done when the railyard does not award anything (it always assumes that I already won something but it gives me nothing, no matter how often I recycle)?

    • Are you turning in your metal, glass, and plastic for blueprints? You should be getting railroad tracks when you turn in 5k, 10k, 15k, 20k, and 25k blueprints (along with 5 donuts for 25k blueprints).

  10. William Ryan

    P.S. sorry for bieng so early in the morning. I forgot that time for you is different from time here in England.

  11. William Ryan

    Hi do you know if it is normal for my boardwalk performers to be on land?
    Also I have got multiple of the same premium items/characters and I cant work out how to get rid of just one

    • Typically Boardwalk Performers only walk on boardwalk tiles, so you may have a glitch going on.

      As for premium items, most premium items can’t be sold, as EA started getting a lot of complaints that people accidentally sold premium items and now need to spend donuts again to buy them. So EA removed the selling functionality of most premium items.

  12. Do you get anything special if you complete all acts before the end of the event? I’ve completed Acts 1 & 3, but have no interest in the last 3 items in Act 2. I figured I’d wait until the event was over and then go back & finish the item it’s currently sitting on to get the event out of my list. But if there’s a bonus for a completed event…

    • No, no bonus reward for getting all the prizes. Getting the prizes themselves is the reward for completing all task before the event ends.

    • Matthew Mitchell

      The events over the last year and more have been way too easy for them to hand out extras… IMO

    • You get a nice, warm feeling for doing a good job
      Of course, as we used to say when I worked in R&D….
      Doing a good job around here is like wetting yourself in a dark suit.
      It gives you a nice, warm feeling but nobody notices.

  13. I miss Ebron and her amazing designs she often posted here. :/
    Does someone know whether she still plays TSTO?

    • She still pops in one in awhile but she’s basically tapped out until they increase the item limits.

      • Thanks for your answer, Alissa!
        I can fully understand her..the item limit is pretty annoying, forces me to store a lot just to be able to design new areas :/

  14. Have any of you hit the maximum currency?

  15. what happens to cash when it’s maxed out? just over 4B ? I don’t send anybody on jobs except for events – or bc it’s a favorite. I don’t collect off bldgs except by accident. I’d really like to know what solution people have come up with.
    I hope everyone & their loved one are staying healthy.
    thoughts go out to the sick, the suffering & the scared (that should about cover it)

    • Matthew Mitchell

      Turn on your XP Multiplier and buy a ton of bloodmobiles???

    • Funny enough I just reached the max in cash last week. I just buy rat traps, quickest way to lower your money & collect donuts.
      I have so much of everything now & with it being really hard to spend that money, I might go back to how I used to play & turn the collider off.

      • What are rat traps? I really need to earn donuts.

        • Rat trap trucks (RTT). Best relation of cash/donuts. You can find them in “decorations” in the store. Bloodmobiles and Tiki bars are a little worse in Relation, but also good for farming 🍩.

        • Rat Trap Trucks. Those or blood mobiles give you about the same XP bang for your bucks.

        • Matthew Mitchell

          Safi made a wonderful post on donut farming years ago that will help you turn cash burning a hole in your pocket, and empty land tiles, into donuts. Long story short, you buy things so you level up your town, and get donuts for advancing levels. Once you hit level 939, you’re maxed and you can get 3 for each bonus level advancement

  16. I can’t wait for act 4 to start!!! Staying safe here in Georgia although it’s opening up. We have closed to 29,000 cases and the country I live in in central Georgia is the third highest with the cases, almost second. Still wearing masks and social distancing and drive thru restaurants. Stay safe

  17. Yay! New Simpsons Episode tonight! ❤️ all of the Easter Eggs in this new Clip FOX put up on YouTube! 😉

    I hope all are staying safe, managed to go back to work (safely), are getting needed help (or volunteer by helping others).👍🏻

    I’ve learned, by wearing a mask, that my breath needs attention.
    Could use a few more friends.

  19. Does everybody get the same 4 weekly items in their Vault or is it truly random and varies from player to player? I’m curious because I didn’t hear anybody mention the Jet Engine Bike rebate a few weeks ago (30-10 = Only 20 Donuts for 2% Bonus!), nor have I seen anybody talk about the Knightboad or Old Gray Mare rebates (40-10 = 30 Donuts for 2%, matching the Jet Engine Bike price-per-donut). I understand the silence if I’m the only one with those.

    • *Knightboat (heh)

    • Great inquiries

      Tappers get different Content at random in their Vault weekly (what gets offered in the Vault depends on what you already have).

      For example – the Ambulance is offered during the Event (look for it in the Honest Abe area of the Store), yet some Tappers got it offered in their Vault with a 20 🍩’s discount and still a 2% Bonus.

      Kudos to You – or anyone – who scores a bargain in the Vault, or Mystery Box with a Bonus % increase. 😀👍🏻

    • Chech your Math, Jet Engine bike is on its own as the best deal. I have hundreds of them in my game.

  20. André Mendes

    It’s been almost two days now since the last time I was able to play.

    Donut goes round and round and the game never logs in.

    But yes, I was able to finish the prize track…

  21. a question: how do you increase your real estate value? thanks in advance
