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…..

Lots of things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:

ICYMI Super Safi started to give some details about the next bracket battle! A battle of Simpsons episodes! You can check out some initial details here.

The Addicts Crew was back yesterday with a new Addicts Live. We shared your thoughts and gave our final feedback on Foodie Fight. You can check it out here.

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)  Don’t forget about Springfield Showoff this week! Submit your designs by Tuesday night.  More details here.

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?

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. So is the login email code thing here to stay now? I got the impression from previous posts and what EA posted that we would return to the old way of logging in. We have 4 games in my household that we are still unable to play as we have to logoff/logon one device and the email verifications don’t come or we don’t have access to the email address so we are now basically barred from playing (apart from one game that if we stay logged into the single one we can use ok but that sucks 🙁 ). Looks like after all these years it’s goodbye from us, which is a shame but hey ho!

  2. Anyone know why the app is continuously updating every time I try to open it? I must have put in my age about 12 times in the last few days. Annoying…

  3. . . . ( 😁 )
    And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time
    ‘Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find
    I’m not the pig they think I am at home
    Oh, no, no, no
    I’m a rocket pig
    Rocket pig, burning out his fuse up here alone

  4. I’m still having issues clearing my glass and plastic depot’s in the recycling task. I’m always able to clear the metal depot and get new blueprints there and from Little Lisa’s Recycling building. I’ve tried everything including clearing the Springfield dump to include freeing every character up and still no luck. Is this a game glitch? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

  5. I’ve had two close calls this week I’m lucky to be here .
    Last Sunday I hit a deer on the road luckily it did not do any damage to the car or the deer . Friday this man decided to merge into my lane on the highway luckily with my expert driving and me laying on the horn we did not crash .

    See ya bye . 👽🖖

  6. Question. I have the Singing Stones from way back when. I never successfully got them to sing, although I’ve since found out how to do that. Problem is, I’ve lost one of the stones in my Springfield so I can’t complete the task.
    Any advice?

    • Martha

      You can turn on the Function to Move Items and make it so that only Decor is visible (pan into your Springfield and carefully look for that missing 🪨 ) 👍🏻

      • Thanks CJ. I enjoy reading your posts. I’ll give that a try. The stones are Soooo small! Keith, I hope you find your zombie sandwich again and again.

    • Happy tapping all, happy Monday, Martha I don’t think I have the stones but I keep losing the zombie sandwich, good luck in your quest to find the stones, seemingly if you tap them in the right tube you win an 8th stone. 😁😀

  7. Wilson. You disappeared from both my wife’s & my list of friends. During this period we both received visits from Frink. Was this you?

    You probably won’t receive an el quattro until the weekend, as we have experienced a broadband outage, & are awaiting a weekend upgrade.

    Best wishes.

  8. I am glad EA responded and extended the event for those who have trouble logging in. Going through the job lists for characters still one of my favorite one is homer trying to get a stale donut from the donut trolly.

    I finally upgraded the irs building. Now I will be working on finishing Springfield heights area. I am currently at the 500k mark. I am half way there. I had previously had completed Springfield heights but i ran into some issues awhile back that I EA had give me a new Springfield. I received a lot of cool items that I didn’t had before. I have been playing ever since a Christmas update where you had to drop presents 🎁 to your neighbors. Maybe 2015 or 2016 I can’t remember.

    • Hey Essence-1919

      I lol at that Homer Simpson Visual Character Task, too (actually still get a kick out of his Olympic-y ‘Eat Patriotic 🍩’s’ 8 Hour Visual extravaganza!) 😅

      It sounds like taking your time to complete the IRS Building and Springfield Heights has been rewarding – hopefully there will be other things to do in your Springfield once you have completed Springfield Heights. Awww look at 👽 🐈🐾

      Sherlock 🐈🐾 is awake n’ waiting for treats!

      Life is great with our pets! 😀

    • I had the login issue today. Messed with my EA settings and tried turning on two factor authentication. Basically locked me out entirely. Couldn’t even get to the part where they want the code.

      HOWEVER, I then changed my email address, and was able to log in!

  9. Hmm…long time player, long time fan here. Oh, wait…you already knew that.

    I ended up rushing this update, mostly because I knew I’d be hard pressed to find the time or inclination to play it in real time. The dialogue was funny enough, but it did little to “peak my appetite” (see what I did there?) to play the game more than before (I’m currently on a TSTO diet).

    I’m weirdly thankful that the game is so, darn, EAsy and predictable these days. It makes it possible to ignore…until you have a spare hour (ironically rare in retirement), to just blast through it with farmed donuts. So…yeah…not willing to “completely break up” with TSTO, but willing to just show up “for dinner,” before taking off to do stuff that matters.

    Say hello to everyone… oh…wait…I can do that… HELLOOOOO EVERYONE! Have a great summer!

    • Patrick, happy retirement. 2 years (approx) ’till my time. Keep busy. I think that’s the way to do it.

      Good fortune.

    • 🖖


    • Patric

      I hope this year is kinder to you … always a 😀 when you pop in to say “hello”

    • You know what Patric, that’s exactly how I am playing the game at the moment. Sometimes leave it for days on end. I would never have dreamed of doing that in the past, when you had to log on at least 4 times a day to complete an event !!!
      Hope all is well.

  10. Happy Sunday Tappers (Happy Memorial Day weekend, be sure to thank a Vet!) 🇺🇸

    We’ve been at the Boulder Dam Rods n’ Bbq (even Homer Simpson showed up with his ‘Hive’ – lol!) ….

    ….. lots of Classic Cars (oh and the 🥘 is great!) So glad to see Safi is returning with another ‘Bracket Battle’ , thank you Alissa for posting where Tappers can get help with ‘Login issues’ (I understand what EA was trying to do via using a code’ to sign in, it’s not working for many of you – hopefully you will find a solution!) and always look forward to see what Tappers do with New Content in their Springfield (still putting work into my Springfield Bbq Festival / Swap Meet!) and let’s see what new Event will show up in the Game App during June. ☺️

  11. I was watching the episode with Lisa’s invisible best friend (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) last night (I’m a few episodes behind), and I saw a building I think our TSTO towns needs…a pawn shop! It didn’t have a clever name or anything in the store, but I’m sure the writers could fix that for the game. I could even imagine building a mini-event around a theme that a pawn shop could fit into…I can think of a few different themes for which that could work!

    On a non-Simpsons note, I’m taking Tuesday and Wednesday off for an extra-extra-long weekend! I haven’t taken any real time off since I took a couple of days in February and I really need this! Yesterday, I made two “cover minders” out of some old, broken jewelry that had belonged to my stepmom. (A “cover minder,” which can also be used as a “needle minder,” is a pair of magnets you can use to help secure our if the way the diamond painting’s cover, while you work on the canvas. You can also stick a needle to it, so you can keep track of where it is…. I’ll sometimes use a needle to clean up stray hairs or whatever that get stick to the glue on the canvas.)

    I also listened to my music collection on my iPod for the first time in ages… I’ve been listening to a lot less music these days, partly because I’ve become super susceptible to ear worms lately, though I don’t know why. Sure enough, I had a couple of songs playing relentlessly in my brain last night, while I was sleeping and trying to go back to sleep. Does anyone know why someone would get more susceptible to ear worms and how to change that?

    Okay, I’ve babbled long enough…have a super Sunday, everyone, and a good long weekend, for those in the US!
