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?

ICYMI take a moment to share your favorite TSTO Event to celebrate 10 years of TSTO here!

We should be seeing a new event this week, as long as EA follows their same pattern of updates.  What do you think we’ll see?

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. Question about the Walking KEM…I was lucky enough to get it from the Yearbook, but I’m unclear on exactly how to use it to my advantage for premium jobs. I know I shouldn’t complete the quests for it (making Apu bolt down products), but if I use my Unemployment office send everybody for a 4 hr job, will it choose the job for Walking KEM, and if Apu gets sent, could that complete the task? Or should I send Apu off on another task first, and then use the Unemployment office for everybody else to maximize my money? Thanks for the help!

    • Can you remind me why is better not to finish that questline? It’s been ages since I got the Walking KEM (which was at the time it was originally released)! I just have finished that questline a long time ago, but I don’t know whether it was on purpose or by accident…

  2. Hello everyone! I started playing back in 2012, then was on and off for awhile and now I’m back almost 10 years Later! So crazy.

    Would love some new friends.

    Stay safe folks!

  3. Weird… my “Sponsored Springfield Church” has disappeared. (I know some jobs disappear for certain characters for certain events…) Has anyone else’s Sponsored Church mysteriously gone away?

  4. Just contacted EA and anyone using an Android tablet and cant connect its apparently because the Android Tablet server is currently down

  5. Just saw the TSTO Facebook post updating us with the new splash screen. Looking like an interesting new event. Appears to be a Circus Theme. Looking forward to it.

  6. Stuck with EA because of my email that wont work, so a break from tapped out until I can log in.

    • Just make sure that they note your # of donuts beforehand if
      they have to clone your account. I didn’t and shortly after they
      cloned mine I noticed that I was missing 2K+ worth. 2 months
      And 45+ emails later I was told that missing donuts could
      only be fixed thru EA chat.🙄. So I contacted them that way
      and was informed that too much time had passed & there wasn’t
      anything they could do about it. Had the North not opened
      up I probably would have quit the game. As it stands now
      I haven’t been able to log in for about 16 hrs and afraid
      to delete/reinstall for fear I’ll end up going thru the whole
      thing again.

      Good luck to you


    Happy Monday all, new update this week maybe 🤞

  8. Has there been anything related to an upcoming update? Perhaps relating to Valentine’s day?

  9. Ok had no problem with doing 2 X 4 stints today (just in case there was an update today) and about an hour ago when I tried to log in I got the old spinning donut. Still unable to log in

    Anyone else?

  10. So I had a big download thing happen, and I originally thought it was snow removal, but it turns out it was the “don’t have enough space to play the game” situation. My question is how much space do I need on my iphone for the game to work as normal? I have just under 30gb unused so I wasn’t expecting to have to deal with this ever.

  11. Hey, for the 10 year anniversary, I’m hoping they reference the game in an episode

  12. I’m happy about the new stories and content, but I feel like there are spots they just forgot about… the Road to Riches for example…

  13. I really wish the game provided a way for players to communicate with our neighbors. I hope sspirate and Carierow are reading this. I love when you come visit my town, and I try to return the favor, but there is never anything for me to click on. Please check and make sure if you have the Simpson’s sofa, that there is no one on it. That game glitch makes it impossible for your neighbors to leave you handshakes.Thanks so much for visiting! I want to return the favor.

  14. Happy Sunday !
    Little question: I can’t move forward on the monorail, I only have the first building but after I built it nothing happened. I even collected the max amount of items collectable but nothing happens. Can you help please?

  15. Happy Sunday Tappers!

    Punxsutawney Phil says you get “six weeks more” (I honestly think that 🐿️ looked irritated getting woken up – it’s no wonder we don’t bother Mojave Max 🐢 out here until he decides to say hello around April!)

    What would you rather be doing for the next six weeks –
    Spring Cleaning?
    Taxes Done?
    New Event on TST

  16. The Northeast is still gripped in winter for a few more months, and although I suspect that the next update will bring back the bright green grass, I’d actually like to see the snow stick around for a while, and have more winter-based skins, activities, etc (other than the tasks we had at Christmas).

  17. When will the snow go away?!?!
    Does EA have a “suggestion box” email address for this game?
    I’d like to suggest a 24 job for Barney/Plow King or Homer/Mr. Plow which will get rid of *all* the snow for the *whole* season.
    Charge 100 donuts for it, I don’t care.
    The snow is depressing. 🙁 🙂

  18. Happy Sunday everyone
