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:

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? 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. I wouldn’t mind some feedback on this; how many times do other players receive the ‘Bart screen’? I get it multiple times (5-7) per, say, a one-hour play. Drives me nuts. And I don’t know if it’s a gift for being an annoyance or not, but 70% of the time that the game comes back, I get the ‘donut prize’ box and get some donuts out of it. That’s nice, but I’d rather have uninterrupted play than a few more donuts, which I can get a ton of just by planting 8-10 rat trap trucks.
    Anybody else get too many Bart screens in a sitting?

    • Yes, common occurrence, every time I go to play I need to clear my cache before the game lets me in.

      I also get chucked out of the game mid flow of clearing everything and lose lots of xp frequently.

      Even when I log in it takes ages to load on my device which is not very old.

      Not ideal 😎🐻🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Hello Tappers! Hope you are doing great!

    — Unpopular opinion alert —

    There are two things that have been bugged me for a while and I would like to know your take on those.

    Those are regarding Premium Event Characters and their interaction during the event.

    The first one is, I am definitively not a fan of E&A adding regular event tasks for Premium Event Characters that do not give event currency. Usually those kind of task are replaced for a regular character when the player doesn’t own the Premium one. When I buy an Event Character the main thing I would like to do is getting event currency at premium rate and I think current approach drawbacks that propuse.

    The second one is, I think Premium Event Characters from Acts 2 and onwards should be able to earn event currency from previous acts. I have face the situation that due to my work I am not able to start the event on time and I think Premium Event Characters could be a great way of catching up. I mean, those characters are not cheap by any means, and this could be a way of getting more value of them (specially from Act 4 character).

    What do you guys think?

    Glad to have this open forums to share our thoughts.



  3. Howdy fellow Simpson addicts. Hope this is the right place to ask this. My wife and me play TSTO on newer Ipads. About 2-3 months ago now my wife has serious issues getting into the game. It just spins and does nothing else. She has deleted the app a few times but no luck. Crazy enough she went to an old Samsung android did the update and it works. Any ideas how to fix the issues with the IPad?? She can do the updates every time they come out but it just spins. Thanks for any help.

  4. In the spoiler video it was mentioned that the evil godmother castle can be used over mountain the homerlayas…Will this NEED to be used to replace a mountain section, or will you be able to also place it on any free land? Thanks….

  5. Hello all! I’m experiencing a very annoying thing with the app where just about every day I’m required to install a huge update (about 1100 mb) in order to play the game. It also logs me out each time and takes about 15 minute to update. Have anyone experienced this lately? I tried removing and reinstalling the app but it still seems to be happening.

  6. Heya everyone – I have an issue that I’d love to know if anyone can help me with – I have a daily job of harvesting “perfection” at Cletus farm. The problem is, it never appears after it’s grown (it only takes 45 seconds).
    Has anyone else had this problem in the past?

  7. OMG 😱 it’s Sunday and the 1st Day of August!!

    Your kids ‘maybe’ going back to school in a few weeks
    Your tapping skills ‘maybe’ ready for another Event
    Your Springfield ‘maybe’ has enough vacant Land left
    You ‘maybe’ got in a vacation (or will) before 😷 mandate
    You’ve ‘maybe’ gone back to work (or never stopped working)
    You ‘maybe’ wish there was a new Episode of The Simpsons on

    I definitely hope every Tapper has been safe from the weather phenomena of 2021 (🔥’s or 🌪️ , floods and 🌀 , earthquakes or 🥵 )

  8. Thank you! That did it.

  9. Happy Sunday everyone

  10. Super random question. Has anyone else experienced a glitch in which characters automatically go back to the last assigned task? For example: most characters in my town went to Krusty Burger for a new promotion as part of a daily challenge a few days ago. Once completed, they go right back to that task without any interaction from me. There have been two updates since this first began but those updates haven’t resolved the issue. Thoughts? Thanks.
