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…..

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

No new Simpsons tonight.  They’ll be back in a few weeks.

ICYMI Addicts Live was back yesterday with a COVID convo, an appearance from a Cookie Monster, and some Northward Bound talk.  As well as a little early Christmas speculation!   Check it out here if you missed it!

Northward Bound is officially over…what are your plans for all that land?  When do you think Christmas will hit? (my official prediction remains this week…)  Thoughts on what we may see for Christmas?

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. This update will not work on my Kindle Fire. Once downloaded I only get a splash screen and the app quits!

  2. So I finished the ftp prize track and completed the event. My bridge is not repaired even though I completed all tasks. Am I missing anything with it not repaired? I can still get deeds and unlock maps.

  3. It’s snowing! It’s snowing!

  4. So I bought the tunnels through the mountains. However unlike my previous tunnel it doesn’t seem to come with a monorail connection. Any way to run a monorail through the new tunnels?

  5. Here’s a funny glitch (?) that occurred in my game.
    I came back to playing my game after a long hiatus, and had ignored Springfield Heights until this last mini-event. After picking up two or three SH Starter packs, I went about opening land to the bridge. Then… I couldn’t.
    The available land for purchase stops on the strip before the Ad Agency.
    It appears I have too many items (like yoga mats for example) to continue the SH tasks list.
    So do I need to dump all these items just to open the land where I will need the items to buy the land?!!

    • I’m not sure I understand what you’re describing (the original Springfield Heights event was so long ago), but can’t you just spend down any excess currency by buying Springfield Heights stuff from the store?

  6. Has there ever been a solution for the problem of having nothing to tap when visiting neighbors? I have nothing to tap on about half of my neighbors’ towns. This includes one person who has two towns. One always something to tap, the other one never does. I know these players are still active. All of them have opened up some of the new land.

  7. Hey everyone! Just wondering if the “Simpsons Road rage” video game has ever been part of an update? I was trying to figure out how to make my Springfield look like that.

  8. Hi,

    Hoping somebody else has had this problem and found a solution.

    I unlocked Christmas crazy cat lady house when it was released however did not have crazy cat lady house. I unlocked crazy cat lady house this event, but it wont let me add the christmas facade.

    Any advise?

  9. Did I read in a previous post that there was a task to shoot buffaloes?

  10. Does anyone know if there will be an event in the Simpsons tapped out game?

  11. It would also be nice if EA had a mechanism for keeping snow in your Christmas area. I use the ice from a previous event, but there’s no where near enough.

  12. On the off chance anyone from EA reads this post, here’s a thought . . .

    Why not figure a way for players to upgrade that new gorge bridge from a wooden one to a road bridge ??

    Perhaps add some 4 or even 8 hour quests ( and a storage boost like you did with SH resources ) to the recycling for the monorail and the option to trade for bridge bits ??

    Another option, remember the Road to Riches, with the next prize marked as coming soon since it first started – perhaps now is the time !!

    On the subject of bridges, how about a stone bridge tile to take cobbled road over river tiles and a wooden bridge for the dirt road ??
    ( or even any kind of bridge tile that will work so the road doesn’t add a closing sidewalk edge when it meets up )

    Thanks in advance from an eternal optimist . . . 😊

    • PS – I know we can mix and match road tiles and the grey road bridge, but I meant something that isn’t grey road. I have a town that uses cobbled road with the grey stuff and KL path reserved for NPCs – ta 😊

  13. Congratulations Alissa! 🎊🧸
    You are a very busy Momma with 3 little ones 6 and under! Remember to take care of yourself as I’m sure you are still recovering from that tiresome COVID. Even when you are fully vaccinated and asymptomatic it tires your body fighting it off. Keep well and welcome back 👏🏻

  14. Waiting for Christmas event, hoping it’ll be fun!

  15. When are we getting snowwwwww

  16. And whatever happened to the season 33 quest? It hasn’t done anything in a couple weeks now?

    • Remember it’s supposed to last all season 33. There are usually 22 episodes per season, and only 5 prize slots. We’ve already had 2 prizes, and still have 5 months of season 33 left…

      • I suspect they’ve already picked the prizes and written the quests, but they are waiting for confirmed air dates so the prize matches up with the episode as it goes out 😊

  17. Happy Sunday everyone!

    My multiplier is almost 2,100. My XP multiplier is always on. And every time I log into my game, I have donuts awaiting.

    I farmed some sprinkles, bought new land and am now into the 4 deeds or 60 donuts per land square. I’ve moved most of my old time/ country into Canada and still have room to expand and am trying to rearrange my normal Springfield.


    • Winner Winner on your 🍩’s multiplier 😊👍🏻

      Isn’t it great to have all that Vacant Land to play with?
      Kind of reminds me of Krustyland
      I hope everyone has fun rearranging their Springfields

  18. Ok, so I’ve heard tid bits about something to do with the Buffalos in the new land. Is there supposed to be a task involving them?

    • Hi Scott
      🦬 Are randomly available when you unlock New Land Tiles
      Some are grazing, some are sleeping
      (they’re Decor – you can keep them in your Springfield, or you can put them in Storage – but you can’t sell them)

      Have fun unlocking New Land Tiles (don’t forget to 🍩 Mine those 🪨’s )👍🏻

  19. For the Christmas event. I’d like them to do a retelling of the very first episode.

    You have the school christmas show (with various kids costumes) Homer & Barney working as Santas, the family Christmas and of course Santa’s Little Helper joining the family.

    To the best of my knowledge Santa’s Little Helper’s original owner has never been in TSTO so that could be a fun addition

    • Those are some good ideas
      I’m with every Tapper who’s wanted Christmas lights / Christmas decor Building Skins for those Buildings that don’t have this (we’ve come a long way from Homes Mansions Schools a Church – gosh even Krustyland doesn’t have a Christmas, but there is enough content to build a Christmas section if you want) 🌨️🎄

  20. Please EA, PLEASE! You already gave us so much this year please give us crazy Vaclav’s place of automobiles for Christmas!! It fits perfectly and could be an act one prize to offset the bigger story about a plowing competition or something

    I always get overly excited over the holidays. I love Christmas! But i think this year everyone has a good reason to be happy about playing this game, thank you EA!

  21. So here’s to 3 Happy Kids during Christmas (I think everyone should watch that YouTube video and check out Alissa’s 🎄!), an Event that starts this week (any later and it would really go into January 2022), maybe New Content we can appreciate (I hope New Tappers get a chance to obtain Prior Content), and I’m okay if it’s an easy Event this Month …. maybe I will post again later with pictures of my Frontierland in the North / Canadian Border Entrance – stay safe everybody and hey how about Safi’s t-shirt? 😊

  22. Happy Sunday Tappers 😊

    I’m glad Alissa’s in good health again (as someone who’s dealt with Covid twice as mild cases – March 2019 , November 2021 – I can tell you it’s no fun, but the vaccinations and boosters help) …..

    I’m okay with no new Simpsons Episode tonight, I caught up on enough of them through Hulu, the Mrs and I have plenty to watch on Roku (ie Wheel Of Time on Amazon Prime), but I’m curious if we will ever get more Content from Season 33. 🤔

    It’s been fun relocating my original Frontierland into the North Frontier (still deciding what will go in that area, rearranging Springfield Heights, creating a new entry between Krustyland and the North Frontier (now that’s how to get use out of the Now Entering Canada Border Checkpoints) …. getting what I can done because editing your Springfield once the 🌨️ and 🧊 hits can make things difficult (it takes time to adjust to that). 🤔

  23. It’ll be snowing in Springfield in a couple of days – as long as you go get the next update when it hits 😊
