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…..

It’s Mother’s Day here in the US (and Canada, and a few other places), so Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!  I don’t care what anyone says, YOU are the real superheroes in all of this! Enjoy your day and hopefully, your kiddos give you a little peace and quiet!

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

The Simpsons Wrestling Event is in its final days!  Thoughts on the event?  Finished with the Act 4 prize track?  What was your favorite prize?

How’s your Springfield design coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. I’m having a weird glitch that seems to be happening more and more, which is that I have to login every couple of days for new updates. When I try, EA can’t find my password (which I keep track of each time), requires me to reset it. Sometimes twice in a day. This only started happening a couple of months ago. While I don’t mind logging in for updates, I’m concerned that my password constantly has to be reset and that I’m getting large updates every couple of days. Am I alone here? Any words of advice? Thanks!

  2. I can’t find a list of character tasks that are possible at the Noiseland Video Arcade, do you know where to find one?

    • Don’t generally list task by building, unless it’s even specific. Tasks are listed by character. I believe Dolph has tasks there

      • Okay, so I have the strangest glitch happening at the moment and I’m wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen to them. I’ve been playing since 2011 and this is the first time for me. I’ve got the majority of my characters currently in Burns Manor and they’ve finished tasks so I’ve tapped on the icons and thr money rolls in, and the xp goes up, but the people appear for a split second and then go back in the building. I can’t access them. So I went to a neighbour’s town, then back to mine and they’re still there and the thumbs ups are back so I can keep collecting money and xp. I’ve leveled up a few times now. I think closing the game completely and restarting will probably fix the problem, but has anyone ever had a glitch like this before?

  3. Quick general question: When a character has a task that‘s location is described in this way (e. g.):
    „ Noiseland Video Arcade/ Brown House“
    On what does it depend where the character goes if all locations mentioned are in one‘s Springfield?

  4. Does anyone know when there will be another Friendship Level update, as I’ve just got to final prize (woohoo)!

  5. Hi – I’ve just realised in my new “B” game that I never got Sideshow Bob and I now need him to complete something. Is there a way to get him somehow? I’ve had 3 games previously and he arrived on cue for the other three but this new springfield seems to have missed him 🙁

  6. Quick question….at what level do you get Maggie for the Homerlayas?

  7. Greg Jablynski

    I’ve had the same problem for quite a while now.

  8. 2 days in a row I’ve gone to play & have been met with a massive download of 1.8gb AND having to log in to my account. Of course, it fails logging in due to an error, so I shut the game down, force quit, start it back up & the download continues…and continues…and continues….and when it finally finishes & I can play…nothing. A huge waste of time waiting for the download to finish so I can get in & there’s nothing visible that the download has done.

    Anyone else getting this?

  9. Is anybody else having problems with visiting friends who are at level 939? When I visit these particular friends there is nothing for me to tap. And I tested this myself. I started a new town, added my first town (which is at level 939) and when I went to visit there was nothing for me to tap. My first town has a good amount of brown houses and there were no friends that visited my town when I did this experiment. Is this a known issue?

    • I think this is the same issue that a lot of us have been experiencing for some time where certain neighbours had no tapable buildings. I never noticed that it was only the ones on level 939, but I think I’ll check this to see if it’s the same problem.
      Notably in the case of the untapable neighbours it is possible to tap on the following buildings even though there is no indication that it is available to tap:
      1. The town hall
      2. Springfield elementary school
      3. Moes Tavern
      4. The Police Station

      In these cases the tapping results in vandalism of the respective buildings you tap on, for this reason you might want to check it your neighbours are ok with getting their building’s vandalised, Most are but their are a few who don’t like it.

  10. EA have really excelled this time, for the last 2 weeks the only way I could log on was to delete the app and reload it, bit of a pain but it worked. Now I get a “not enough storage available” message. REAlly. 2GB not enough, total crap, much like their game now.

    • No 2 gb isn’t with free space and hasn’t been enough for years. Really need at least 5 i recommend 8. That’s been the norm. This game has been around for 8 years and the game files are massive.

  11. They need to allow us to make more wood boardwalk tiles, using the yellow submarine produces maybe one a week, I would like to be able to build it all the way out from the shore as you can I’m working on it but it’s taking a loooong time.

    I really wish the game would allow us to gift game cash and donuts to friends. I would love to start another game and give myself a gift.

    • It would be good if you could move items between worlds, I’ve often thought about the same thing in minecraft, some sort of global inventory that could be accessed by all of your worlds / accounts

  13. I haven’t been able get in the game all weekend. Just a spinning donut on the splash screen. I hope they extend the event a few days since this seems to be a problem for a lot of players.

  14. Sorry if I missed the thread on this, but why do we still collect income on buildings?

    • New players should refer to page 101 of the manual, titled: currency and spending it wisely.

      • I have 600 million and nothing to spend it on.

        • Buy donuts, page 102 of the user manual for beginners

        • Buy f.e. Rat Trap Delivery Trucks and farm donuts that way. If you also have enough donuts, then there’s nothing left to do with your money.

          • Except for the luxury items like the elevator to nowhere, the sunsphere, the popsicle stick building and the giant magnifying glass all of which cost millions of units of cash.

    • For higher level players it would be nice to be able to toggle off or at least be able to turn off the symbols floating above the buildings when I’m trying to design.

  15. I can hardly log on so I definitely won’t be finishing this event. And uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t help. Oh well. More important stuff to be concerned with. Still enjoy my bizarre version of Springfield. 🤪

  16. Happy tapping all 😜, finished event with ease, staying home and saying safe, 😁

  17. Here it is 11:05 MDT and not a comment..
    Happy Mother’s Day to all the MOMs out there. Get spoiled.

  18. iron yuppie was a favourite prize i would’ve loved to have gotten but the login error that normally lasts the first week of every event has stuck around for a month. reinstalling the game every 4hrs to play rarely works now & with no help from ea & being moved around from multiple people in the tech support teams it’s draining & sad that such a great game has come to this

  19. Queen Alissa is up early today.
    Savoring, perhaps, ‘her’ day?
    Happy Mother’s Day! Here in California, the heatwave broke. And y’all out east get to make snowball fights!

    Day ~70

    Next week, rent a Rug Doctor and clean the hall way – if possible.

    Yesterday a ‘neighbor’ gave a shout out, her refrigerator died. Ice chests weren’t cutting it. Luckily, we have a Coleman camp refrigerator- hooks into car or AC and keeps things 40 degrees below ambient.
    We loaned it to her, she ‘loaned’ us some frozen food.

    Life goes on

  20. Happy Sunday everyone

  21. Happy happy Mother’s Day to all u kick-ass mamas out there!!! We deserve it this year more than ever!!!! Love to u all!!!!❤🌹🌸❤🌸🎉🌸🌹😁🌹🌸

  22. Despite the (many) posts about the GGR tokens/land/donuts explaining all this, could somebody help me out? lol…I have 400 tokens and it just told me it will no longer produce. Does that mean I have 400+ land tiles remaining?! If so, when will I get to trade tokens in for donuts? Currently I don’t see anything in the store where I can trade land tokens for donuts. I’m trying to maximize the amount of donuts I can get – with God giving me so much cash, should I try to buy any land with cash to save tokens for donuts? Seems to make sense now that I have that cash flow…Anyway, any additional support here would be great. Thanks!

    And Happy Mother’s Day to Alissa and all the other moms!

    • I’m only basing this on what I’ve read, not real experience. So when GGR first came out you could unlock all the land except one tile and continue to generate land tokens which could be exchanged for donuts. The game did not allow that for long. Now once GGR has generated enough tokens to unlock all the land then it will only produce game cash. Let’s say currently, you have 40 land tiles you can buy with cash and 60 available for land tokens only. I’m guessing GGR produced 100 tokens. So if you buy the 40 for game cash that will leave you with a surplus of tokens that you’ll then be able to exchange for donuts. So in short, buy up all the land you can with game cash. You’ll really only be able to get a lot of donuts once. Now that I have all the land unlocked, GGR only produces cash. If I happen to get a land token via the daily tasks then I’m able to convert it to donuts since I can’t do anything else with it at the moment. Hope this helps.

    • Spend the lot on land, it’s as easy as that
