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…..

Game of Games 2 Act 3 hit last Sunday, and the final Act (Act 4) is slated to hit our games Tuesday.  How are you doing on the prize tracks? Ready for a week and a half more of this?

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, whatever that means to you. Just 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. Hi! Has anyone seen any deals on Google play gift cards online or in stores in the US?

  2. For fans of THE FAR SIDE (by Gary Larson): Cartoonist Gary Larson is beginning to release new strips of The Far Side. His comic strip ended its run in 1995. However, it has been a fan favorite over the years since (along with Calvin & Hobbes).

    Recently, Larson received a digital tablet and began using it to produce new strips. He said that, for the first time since his strip’s run, he began having fun creating clever new comic strips.

    Anyway, he has released the first three new strips. Enjoy!

    Does anyone have an opinion on getting broken dreams storage lockers vs the Springfield multicultural center?

  4. Hello, this is my first time posting. Asking for a little help. Anyone know how I can access more land in Springfield? All the land is locked and I don’t have any tokens. I didn’t know about the building that gives you tokens until it was too late, it’s not for sale any more. I’m level 178 if that makes a difference. Thanks.

    • As of for right now the Golden Goose Realty is only way to get land tokens .

      See ya bye . 👽

    • Yes it’s grim being stuck with no way of getting land squares. I was stuck in that position for about a year as I couldn’t afford the GGR building when it first appeared in January 2019 then didn’t reappear until Jan / Feb of this year. Hopefully you won’t have to wait this long for it to show up again, there really should be some way of getting it at all times, perhaps via a special quest.

  5. Anybody knows of the maximum number of elements you can place on your Springfield has been upped?

  6. My town has had no sound for weeks now. Anybody else have this issue?

    • Hi, yes also no sound. Hoping it will be resolved on next update. Playing on android tablet

    • Yah…no sound since the beginning of this event. I hope it is restored afterward. I love the sound effects and voices.

  7. WOW…..everybody hungover 😵 today? Never been the first one to comment!
    Have a great week! 😁

    I’ve been trying to design a way of adding fake isometric “features” to TSTO, to allow something that looks like local terrain height changes. I’m being foiled by roads and paths currently, due to their snapping to a coarser grid than everything else.
    Ahh well, it’ss a fun mental exercise.

  9. Recently I clicked on the Magic Academy school when a number of characters were finished with their tasks. Poof! The building disappeared! I have looked many times all thru the inventory. Called EA and that was a waste of time. The task of going to the Wizarding school no longer shows up for any of the kids, so indeed it is gone. Any ideas on how I can get it back?

  10. Wow that’s ” Weird ” !

    My computer is showing no comments .
    Could I be the first at 5 p.m. ?
    I doubt it I’m not that lucky but I sure would like to have a chicken dinner .


    See ya bye. 👽

  11. So the animation prize, I got nuthin’. I already had waterslide tree and when I got the prize nothing changed with the tree. Am I missing something here? My pride sidewalks have the same issue they just stay regular sidewalks. Not sure if this is related, but I had the pride skin for Moe’s, then it went away when I bought the Halloween skin last Halloween. I had to buy it for this years pride event to get it back. Any ideas?

    • The animation prize is a 2 hour visual task for Martin at the Waterslide Tree called “Take a Tropical Bath” so you only got the task as the prize while the players that don’t have the tree get the Waterslide Tree and Martin’s task.

      I assume you got One Night Stan’s (the building that produces Pride Crosswalks) either in this year’s Pride event or the one in 2018. Apparently, you needed to have played the Pride event in 2017 and completed some quests in the Pride 2017 event to unlock the ability to add the rainbow colours on the Pride Crosswalks.

      Some players have said that when they got Rollerskate Smithers and Sconewall Bakery from Pride 2018 and 2020 events (also in the yearbook) they also received the Mo’s skin for Moe’s Tavern since one of Rollerskate Smithers’ quest tasks is at Mo’s. Do you remember in the Pride 2020 event if Mo’s appeared in the Pride section of the store to buy since it was available for donuts during the event?

  12. hi all… 🙂 it feels like forever that i have commented…but hope everyone is doing well, enjoying the game… evey Dot Dot Dot (…) is a minute that passes by, while i gather my thoughts and type lol…. so yeah… Hey in 2 weeks the US will have another peak in covid cases, i see all this brainless people out and about without a face mask, not caring for their health and or other people’s health.. they can eat Tide Pods but can’t wear a mask.. go figure.. am sure all those that come to TSTOaddicts are smart and caring and DO wear masks… anyways… i like the current TSTO event, its right up my alley.. Gaming.. 🙂
    Everyone stay safe and i’ll see you in the game neighbors… k00lviruz… Peace!!

    • For the most part, masks are mandatory ….. except for young children under age 2 , or those with a respiratory medical condition that would leave them exempt (here’s the “red flag” on that … no Dr is going to write you an exempt note regarding your medical condition for respiratory …. they will tell you to please stay home and use delivery / curbside pickup).

      Dining out – it’s deemed ok to remove a mask in order to eat and drink , provided social distancing is maintained (the server must maintain wearing a mask & gloves – or frequently wash hands).

      Pools – mask is required of lounging pool side, not when swimming (like a Theme Park, you will wear a mask when walking around , on a Ride or Attraction – but can remove a mask to dine provided social distancing is maintained) social distancing in the water is not deemed necessary.

      How one chooses to go about their lives at work (I use a mask + nitirile gloves), at the market – or other shop / building (I wear a mask, carry hand sanitizer on me), at home (it all comes off , we do utilize delivery and curbside pickup), in life (we do pickup and deliver for the infirm in our community and maintain all precaution when doing so).

      It would and should be easy to follow along with the rules — but so many tourists visiting Vegas didn’t (those establishments that didn’t follow the rules are being sites with citations). I understand and agree with you 💯 , but the dangers of policing the mask / social distancing rules is t easy (it’s bringing out the worst behaviour).

  13. For this event the highlight for me has been the Pirate Nelson quest line. There were several LOL moments in the dialogue between Nelson and the Sea Captain. However I don’t know what episode inspired that skin and the Chunky Island mentioned during Act 3.

    • It was nice to see the Sea Captain included in a questline and the dialogue was great. Pirate Nelson was from an early Treehouse of Horror episode (3 I believe) which there was a Halloween party at the Simpsons House and several kids were at the party. I don’t think Chunky Island was in an episode (it might’ve been mentioned in one) but it is based on the Lord of the Flies book and movies, plus there was a Simpsons episode based on LotF called “Das Bus”.

    I just realized that I haven’t seen an Addicts Live post in a while. Have I missed them or has there not been one in a long time?
