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, in fact they won’t be back until the end of February!  What’s been your favorite episode of the season so far?

The Holiday Whodunnit Event officially ends this Wednesday! Did you enjoy it? Sorry to see it go? What do you think will be next?

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 Springfield Showoff this week!  Submissions are due on Tuesday.  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. FYI, my daily challenges involving Christmas themes cause the game to freeze.

    • Hey Charles I,
      I have the same problem. I think it stems from the fact that the XMAS event is over and therefore the mystery boxes are gone. The tickets are now worthless. E 👀 A👀 are real 💩 heads. They could have at least left the doughnut exchange available until the end of the day. They didn’t even give the players that lost 7 to 8 days of no game participation due to their laziness.
      When they put out the game update. They didn’t bother to code it so that older models of Kindle and other game systems where unable to support the huge Xmas event download.
      The strange thing is that I had over 7 mbps more then enough to run the game.
      Hope that helps. 😎

      • I just checked one of my games, under Currency (the donut icon next to Homer Budda) I have a mystery box tokens for 12 and ticket for 3. Strange because I thought I used all my tickets.

  2. I have a question about Zero-Clops Thirty Pt. 1. I got the Wippop’s Station in one of the boxes (not during the event it was in) and unlocked his small questline. I have Capture Wiggops as a quest but there is no option to do anything to it, the first quest is Done (Reach level 12 and place bart’s treehouse). I tried tapping Wiggops with no luck, I don’t know if it’s a glitch or if I am missing something to complete it.

  3. Howdy gang! I have a Klondike area question.
    When it unlocked, it said you could upgrade…something…up to 1,000 donuts. I completed the bridge, and have been slowly unlocking each block every 2 days or so. Does it take that long for everyone? Also, in the store area, am I the only person missing the Klondike button?

    • Hi Chris,

      You have completed the Bridge that connects Springfield Heights to the Land Expansion (North Frontier) …. you did the tutorial regarding the Shack that generates Land Deeds …. and now you have to decide how to unlock Land Tiles (generate Land Deeds and send Characters to Task OR spend lots of 🍩’s).

      I only unlocked half of what’s available, because I am taking my time (some Tappers unlocked everything for 10,000 🍩’s, you decide what works best for you (remember there is no wrong or right way to play this Game App so long as you are having fun). 😉👍🏻

  4. Glad to see the snow finally disappear.

  5. Looking for another game like TSTO to play. Does anybody know if the Futurama and Family Guy games are still being supported with new content? I stopped playing both a while ago.

    I seem to recall something happening to the company that developed the Futurama game like 2-3 years ago and wonder if that game’s dead, but hopefully I’m wrong about that because IMO it was a pretty good game!


      Futurama is basically dead.

      • Thanks Alissa! I’ll start following that page now too. I lost all of my Family Guy progress and quit that game for reasons I can’t recall anymore. So I’ll start from scratch.

    • The Futurama game stopped being updated around 2019. No real customers support either. I had high hopes for that game. It became tedious to play with no chance to advance. It became increasingly expensive also. The characters would reach a certain level, and that was it unless you made more in-game purchases of the game currency pizza slices. The game would charge you for a piece of pizza if you didn’t play the game every 24hrs. Which meant that you had to make the game part of your daily routine, or you’d forfeit the money.
      I spent a lot of time and money playing that game. After a while, I gave up on it and deleted it. It could have been a fun game if it had been set up like TSTO is.

  6. I would really like it if we could buy holiday house facades for holidays other the Christmas to put in our Springfields.

    Like valentines day, Saint Patrick’s day, Easter, fourth of July, presidents day, holloleeen Thanksgiving.

    They don’t all have to have lights on them, but it would be fun to decorate like folks do in real life for these holidays with our homes in Springfield.

    Anyway, I finished the event, I love the warehouse, it fits in nicely with my Christmas items I didn’t have a place for, go’s really well with the flake blaster too.

    I loved this event overall, can’t believe herb tried to kill Santa lol.

  7. Today’s song .

    Rolling Stones

    It’s all over now .

    See ya bye . 👽🖖

  8. Currently working on the warehouse and the sleigh race is in full swing, because you know, competing to replace Santa on January 9th-Why not EA? I’m really hoping the warehouse is the final prize because it does something cool, I’d really love it if it worked like an alternative inventory and I could actually store all my Christmas decorations separately in there. That would be amazing.
    Didn’t really care for the whodunit story line and dialogue, I thought it was rather weak. Some good premium questline dialogue though. I liked the update prizes.
    Big fan of the gift cards, I had 5 unique items in that box and really like that it switched to free non-unique items, or if you preferred, could trade them in for donuts. Good job EA. I didn’t really play the Pagan Christmas so I was able to pick up a lot of content I missed. Also happy for more ice tiles and Christmas fencing,.
    I picked up the Mr. Plow plow even though it was definitely a missed opportunity to have Homer have a visual task for it. Too classic for me to not want it in my Springfield.
    Hope everyone is having a good Sunday, free from crazy weather and covid. I’m in the PNW, so while it’s nice and sunny today where I live [we were snowed in day after Christmas], just a couple hours away mountain passes are closed and others are flooded. We’re short staffed at work as omicron tip toes right past our vaccinations, boosters and masks. Stay safe Tappers!


  10. So,
    I have 4 transporters
    Alpha, Omega, Theta, Zeta

    Alpha is Homers house, home base.
    Omega is by “New Canada”, prospector cabin, generating land tokens. And such

    Theta is by my donut generators – every 12 hours they pop out 6 donuts each. A reminder to GO THERE.

    Zeta is by my “current event” location. Christmas Town under the current event.

    Figure it’s an easy way to go “there”

    • Yeah, bit how often do you really need to get to Homer’s house? I keep one of my four by the unemployment office, because I used that at least twice a day to send hundreds of characters on their tasks.

    • Kathryn D Soukup

      What is the name of the other donut generator? I know I have them both and I know one is the Lard Lad Donut Factory, but for the life of me I can’t remember the other one and I can’t find it! Thanks

    • My transporter spots: finger of god (24 hour collect), theater (generate statues for cars), XP collider (usually with rocket), fish cannery (for rails) with submarine (for tiles) and current prize area location (this time the cabin for land).

  11. Quick question for everybody — does anybody know all the characters that can fly sleds?

    I have a sled corner of my town, and I enjoyed getting to do the Santa race at the end of Act 4. But it looked like I had a few sleds unused, so I wasn’t sure if I was missing any tasks or characters. Thanks!

    • Homer (snowmobile)
      Crazy Cat Lady as Ms Claws (sleigh)
      Sea Captain (sleigh)
      Marge and Maggie (greyhound sleigh)
      Sideshow Mel (sleigh)
      Mr Burns as White Witch (sleigh)
      Krusty (sleigh)
      Rich Texan (sleigh)

  12. Happy Sunday everyone

  13. What am I supposed to do with a bazillion bonsai trees and a gazillion Duff factory gnomes?

  14. Happy Sunday Tappers

    Thank you Alissa and Safi for the prompt Updates 👍🏻

    No thank you FOX / Disney because we don’t get a new episode of The Simpsons until February (not even Bob’s Burgers gets this disrespected!) 🙄

    I hope everyone is safe from any local weather phenomena (ie let’s hope there’s another situation like Virginia with miles of cars stuck on a road due to excessive snow) 🤔

    Let’s all stay safe from covid (it won’t be long before EA comes out with something new for 2022 in TSTO – hey I hope everybody’s enjoying their New Content!) ☺️

      • Rubber chicken dinner

      • Not all chicken is actually chicken .


        See ya bye . 👽🖖

        • This is true 🍗
          We got plant-based KFC, 🧈 and now cream cheese

          • That’s funny a co-worker was telling me
            about plant base KFC chicken .
            After I had made this comment
            and now you are talkin about it .

            I must have the Magic 8-Ball power .

            Two weeks ago I knew that a co-worker would be off and that another one would be woking .
            She said how did you know ?
            He didn’t even know he was going to be off until the day before .
            I said well I’ve got the power .

            See ya bye . 👽🖖

          • CJBROWNLV
            Have you tried them? They both sound gross. 🚾 🚑 LOL.

            • hondoriley

              You are the magic 🎱


              Country Crock makes plant-based 🧈 using almond and olive oil
              (You will not taste the difference, but then again Generations have been eating fake butter called margarine since the late 60’s)

              I will give that plant-based 🍗 a try from KFC (this is coming from someone who uses almond or oat based milk, but still enjoy that shamrock shake seasonally from February to March – lol!) 😉👍🏻

            • breaded chicken nuggets plant-based
              (you will not taste the difference)
              there’s Vegan ketchup (Heinz)
              there’s Vegan non-dairy Ranch Dressing (Hidden Valley)

              Protein Source
              Zero Fat
              Keto Diet
              Gluten Free Diet

              Not bad for a free snack provided by KFC (next time we will taste test non breaded Plant-Based Chicken Strips) 😀👍🏻
