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…..

Act 2 of Clash of Creeds hit our games on Friday, thoughts on the new act?  Prizes? Premium content?

It’s the weekend before Christmas, do you have any plans?  Have you finished your shopping?  Wrapping?

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) 

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods?  Holiday decorating?  Holiday traditions happening? In our house, today is “It’s a Wonderful Life” day.  Every year my mom and I get together and watch the greatest Christmas movie of all time…and this year, Covid or no Covid, we’re continuing that tradition. Looking forward to Clarance earning his wings!

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 guess this is an obvious/repeated question, but how do I check how many Clash of Creeds tickets I have so far? I’m just curious, in case something other than donuts gets offered before the event ends. I’m betting there is some standard way of checking your current “balances” in the various currencies, but I can’t remember what it is.

    1. I don’t think you can, once you’ve cleaned out the mystery box the tickets are good for. (Until that point, that mystery box shows you the total you have so far.) OTOH, I doubt there will be anything other than donuts that we’ll be able to cash them in for. When you decide to cash them in for donuts, you could keep count of how many times you’re able to do that to find, in retrospect, how many tickets you had accumulated!

    1. Wasnt King free? I would like to get the flying saucer. I think it came with Kodos purchase during an event but later Kodos was given away free without the saucer.

  2. So when I’m trying to login to the game why does it say “an error occured processing the login. Please try again later” I guess the game is like under construction right now? Lol

  3. Daily challenges totally lagging my game, Springfielders stampede stores x 20, finding this happening all the time.

  4. So, I got Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert and I can’t get past part 2 of his quest. In part 2 I must make him «teach about Kwanzaa» and I have been doing that two or three times now and nothing happens. No progress after that. It’s a 4 hour task, but I read somewhere it’s supposed to be just 1 hr?

    1. The task ‘teach about Kwanzaa’ is completely missing for me. It is supposed to be a 60 minute task.

    2. I have same problem as you….I got Kwanzaa Dr. Hibbert, but I can’t finish the second part of task – teach about Kwanzaa. Homer just finished his part, but Dr. Hibbert didn’t. There is no action for 60 min :(.

  5. Hey, been a while since I visited this site. I come here to look for guidance. What does those red ticket thingies that we obtain from daily quests do?
    Thanks beforehand.

  6. I have to say they really didn’t think out some of these daily tasks for tickets… I quite literally got one today that wants me to buy a scratcher ticket three times for ONE TICKET.

  7. In my neighborhood on Toronto, Ontario during summer lockdown lots of beautiful gardens, now during winter lockdown lots of beautiful Christmas light displays. 💖

  8. I haven’t been able to log in today. Anyone else having log in issues? Playing on iPhone. No updates are pending.

    1. You might need to free up some space by deleting pictures and unused apps .

      You might need to go to the Play Store and uninstall the app and then reinstall it .

      You might need to scream like a madman and jump up and down on your phone . 😀

      One out of three suggestions might work .
      Let us know if one of these do .

      See ya bye . 👽

      1. I was finally able to get into my neighbors’ towns! And about 97% of them have houses tappable again instead of only graffiti!!!❤
        Enjoy the holiday my friend!!!❤🎄🎅

  9. Coming from Kent, UK I was very upset this time yesterday realising I would have to cancel all my plans for Christmas.

    Having slept on the situation I can only be grateful that all my family are safe and well and that there will hopefully be many time for us to celebrate together in the future.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alissa and Patric for all the hard work they do on our behalf and also to wish everyone a very happy and safe Christmas.

  10. Welcome new neighbors and old ones .
    Welcome one and all .

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year .

    See ya bye . 👽

  11. The programmers made a little screw-up and I thought I’d post about it here to save others the trouble I had today… The daily task today, “Make Springfielders peach their version of Christmas,” has a flaw. At the top of my list of characters who could (theoretically) do this task was Helen Lovejoy. But every time I’d try to send her on it, I’d get that “you can’t do that” sound and the game would totally freeze up. So, using the Town Hall, I found her and looked at her task list, only to see that she’s missing that task, which is why the game was crashing, because it couldn’t resolve the conflict.

    So, if/when you have that task, do not try to send Helen on it! Fortunately, I had plenty enough other characters to complete the daily task without her!

    (If we get a little in-game update in the next day or so, I’m guessing that might be why!)

      1. Interesting! Surprised they’d do that, given that the Reverend is occupied full-time with the main questline…. Oh, well…once I figured out Helen was the problem, it was an easy problem to solve!

    1. Geert is correct. Rev Lovejoy is needed for the visual task. If he is unavailable, the game will freeze or cause an error.
      The problem is rather than greying-out the option if Lovejoy is busy, it remains highlighted like a viable task. Good thing is that you can just close the app and restart it with no other issues.
      So far, I think that is the only situation where this happens.

    2. I had the same problem. I’m glad you mentioned it. I did find, at least on the Amazon Kindle HD 10 tablet, that if you bring up your bottom hidden navigation arrows while in the game and you press the left arrow, it unfreezes the game and makes the box go away.
