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…..

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!  Hope you’re having a fun and festive day, and staying cool wherever you are!

  1. I’ve been working with chat assistants for a while now, trying to log into game. They finally were able to help me log into Origin, but it won’t allow me to add a phone number without a verification code. I see many people are having the same issue. I’m not going to play anonymously and give up my game progress. According to EA, they understand it’s a global issue and they’re working to resolve it. 😵‍💫

  2. Any of you have some intel on if or when we’ll get more land? I’ve all but given up designing my town because there’s no space to fit any of the content.

  3. How do I buy more China walls. After I bought the first set with donuts, now I don’t see them anymore? I wanna get more of them. Anyone know where I can get them?

    • Tap on the first tower with the Chinese flag and you will get the option to buy either another tower for $10K, this will take 24hours but you can skip this with 12 donuts. The other options are for the 2 types of wall and they cost $2K and take 4 hours or you can skip the 4 hours with 2 donuts.

  4. Happy Monday (Happy Tuesday if it’s finally past midnight where you are located)

    OMG how surreal it’s been at a Theme Park over the weekend (in certain places you will wear a mask, while in other places you will be able to take a mask off – most the time it’s at your discretion, especially if you have been vaccinated + you have come prepared with sanitation wipes – lol!)

    We chose July to visit Knott’s Berry Farm (they are a Cedar Fair Theme Park), and it was just what we needed – get out of the Condo and do something without any anxiety or fear that we would catch a disease. I sincerely hope that everybody gets an opportunity to take a vacation (Cedar Fair Six Flags Universal Disney Busch Gardens – choose a place that makes you and your household happy and go for it!)

    Thank you Alissa & Safi for keeping us Tappers up-to-date (Act 4 tomorrow, going back to work tomorrow, coming home and wanting to go on vacation again tomorrow). I sincerely hope everyone had a pleasant 4th of July weekend 🇺🇸 , or just a pleasant weekend overall. 😊👍🏻

  5. Happy Monday tappers, thunder, lightning, torrential rain all weekend, have a good weekend 😁😎

    • And a good week 😁😎🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  6. Better late than never but here’s some free advice stay out of trouble this weekend because you won’t get to go in front of the judge until Tuesday . I won’t mention any names but you know who you are .

    See ya bye . 👽🖖

    • Happy Monday (glad the only thing I need to do Tuesday is go back to work and do Act 4) hondoriley 👍🏻

  7. Once again EA puts up their login challenge screen. Now it says they’ll email you a verification code to your email address, but no code ever comes. After almost 9.5 years I’m getting tired of their login challenge screens. I may be done with this administrative BS.

      • No luck with anything. Now when I click to have a code sent I get “An error occurred processing the login. Please retry”. Needless to say retrying has the same result.

        • Have you tried closing all your windows on your device and restarting your device I hope this helps .

          See ya bye . 👽🖖

    • Hi Carl
      I have been playing for just as long and finally got the ‘verification code prompt’ (because I kept my email up to date on my Origin Account Profile? I received a verification code in 8 seconds and by 15 seconds I was already logged back into TSTO).

      Where I see this becoming a problem is if you are a Tapper with more than one Springfield (log out wait for a verification code log in – now I know why I’m losing so many neighbourinos!)

      Have a better Monday and a better Tuesday and hopefully you are logged back in to TSTO! 👍🏻

      • Hi CJ,

        About 7 years ago I dropped my second tapped out game, so just down to one. I think the only reason I kept this email open was for TSTO. So far I’ve restarted the game, rebooted my iPad, tried getting in through my iPhone, rebooted my iPhone. I’m guessing EA is on vacation, so if I don’t resolve it tomorrow I’ll try removing the game, reinstalling it and trying to log back in to the new instance of the game. It’s getting harder than actual work. 😂

  8. Happy Sunday and Happy Independence Day for those in the US! 🎇🎆🇺🇸

    I’m enjoying a nice extra, extra long weekend, having taken Friday off, a Monday holiday off, and another vacation day on Tuesday. And, yesterday, I ate in restaurant for the first time in about 16 months! I also finally got around to framing the first diamond painting I did (about six months ago)…. I’m working on my fourth paining since then.

    In other news, after two years of debating it, we finally got an air fryer a couple of weeks ago…any good recipe suggestions? I’m going to use it to reheat my leftover French fries from yesterday’s meal out, and we’ve used it to cook frozen battered fish and tater tots, but we haven’t used it for any from-scratch cooking yet.

    • Happy Monday sandrashill
      We are guilty of taking 4 days off and enjoying Knott’s Berry Farm (something tells me nobody’s going to look forward to going back to work on Tuesday – lol).

      Feel free to share your paintings (we enjoy seeing artistic endeavors). We also picked up an air fryer 3 months ago, then stopped by Barnes & Noble to pick up a cookbook – the ultimate air fryer cookbook for beginners (we seem to enjoy sweet potatoes in almost everything)

      Let’s see how Act 4 is tomorrow 👍🏻

      • Thanks, CJ! Glad to hear you had a fun trip. 🙂

        I have to say that I don’t really think that diamond painting (at least from a kit) qualifies as an “artistic endeavor,” since it requires zero creativity (it’s essentially like doing paint-by-numbers, except with multifaceted acrylic gems, instead of paint) and almost no skill. I do it more because it’s very relaxing and stress-free (because it requires no real creativity/skill/decision-making). But I guess the end product kind of qualifies as “art” insofar as someone did create the original image that the canvas was based on. At any rate, I’ll go upload a couple of images to Imgur later, so I can share them here. (I really long for the day when WordPress adds the ability to directly attach a photo to a comment, like Facebook does!)

        Oh, and I had some sweet potato last night! Fun fact about them though…if you cook them in the microwave, the sweet potato ends up with a much lower glycemic load than if you bake them in the oven (or air fryer, I assume) and they cook very quickly in the microwave!

      • Okay – I’m providing a link to an Imgur album of the diamond paintings I’ve finished. Right now, I’m working on my first “mystery” diamond paintings, meaning there’s no picture on the canvas, so I won’t know what it will look like until I’m done. (There’s an opaque cover on it, which I cut in strips to get to the ext section I’m ready to do… I’ve been keeping everything except whatever section I’m working on covered, so I’ve never seen even the whole image of what I’ve completed so far. I’m going to wait until I’m done for the big reveal!)

  10. Happy Sunday everyone

    • Happy Monday Tracey 🇺🇸
