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:

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode.  What will happen in the new episode? Will you be watching?

Hot Diggity Dog there’s a new update in TSTO, all about Hot Dogs…well Hot Dog Grease.  Thoughts on the new update?

ICYMI you can help out the Little Addict, Riley, and her school here.

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. Did anyone else has problems with the iOS version of TSTO over the weekend? I had it download a small update (presumably for the grease collection) and after that the app would just crash after a few seconds once I tapped the login screen with my info in the corner. I tried phone restart, etc with no luck. After trying many times Friday night and Saturday AM, finally on Sat night I tried it again and it crashed so I force closed the app and then tried again and got the Bart screen two times and once I hit retry a third time it actually went into the app and has gone in every time since. Very strange. Was glad I did not have to delete the app and re-download the petabytes of data it requires back onto the phone. . .

    • Happy Tuesday everyone

      I’ve been having the same problem since Friday. The game keeps downloading so called ” updates ” and each time this happens,
      A blue box appears asking for permission to launch update…
      This is a new system I got during the XMAS debacle. I’ll call E. A. and see what the Grand pubah has to say.

      • Usually, when a device keeps trying to update TSTO, it means there’s not enough free space on the device. TSTO takes a LOT of room to run properly! (There’s an article about this issue somewhere in the site, but I don’t have the time right now to search for it for you…sorry!)

  2. Long time reader, first time poster… Just wondering if everyone is still getting a land token in their daily challenges? I haven’t seen one as a bonus prize in weeks. Unfortunately I didn’t get GGR when it was available and am running out of space 🙈

    • I think I got 3 in a year from daily challenges – not great.
      I was lucky to get the GGR soon after starting a second town for the Winter 2019 event – didn’t hesitate and paid for the sprinkles when that showed up ’cause I knew from my A town how much I’d need it and how it was quite rare for it to be back in store.

  3. Did I post the link?
    Here it is : Celebrating Milhouse and Farmer Markets

  4. I am avoiding completing my taxes so here is a 7 min video of parts of my towns concentrating on celebrating Milhouse and Farmer Markets.

  5. Now I’m on Level 939 I Saved up £30 million in game currency and bought a 5x XP and bought £20 million worth of rat catcher vehicles and then started collecting my bonus donuts. After a few bonuses (4-5) it crashed and then when I loaded it up it only did one bonus doughnuts and then stopped. Gutted! 😭

    • When you don’t have a huge bonus and a load of cash in the bank just place enough trucks or collect enough KEMs to get one round at a time. If the XP showing in the counter and the XP you earned and not yet counted comes to more than 2 million at level 939 and Bart shows up or your game glitches out and reloads it pays one bonut round and sets the XP counter to zero.
      I’ve got maxed out cash and somewhere over 16,000% and it still leaves me feeling ripped off when that happens.
      There’s another glitch that gets you with a heap of XP too, somewhere between 3 and 4 million it loses count and pays one less round then it should. Earn tons with an item and it can lose more, I get over 10 million XP from a truck but 1 truck is 8 rounds, 2 trucks is 18 and 3 is 28 . . . Don’t ask, not a clue !!

    • That is the reason most Tappers only buy a few Rat Trap Trucks at a time.
      I used to buy only ten at a time just in case the game crashes. I don’t donut farm anymore, don’t need to, I have over 160 thousand donuts.

      • Thanks guys! At least it’s not just me ! I’ll take it slower next time to be on the safe side! 😅

  6. Just a question has anyone else noticed that you can no longer tap on the Entry Gate for Krusty Land and view your ticket count or exchange tickets for currency?

  7. Happy Sunday Tapping (or Napping!) ☺️

    Obtained Dr. 🌭 Friday and anticipate silliness on Monday (I’m content with Prize 1 , 2, and 3 – so I guess I’m done for now!)

    We got a lil’ 93° heatwave, but that’s going to be replaced by 60° with 🌧️ in the next 24 hours (yep climate change is real!)

    • That is weather not climate change. Not that climate change isn’t real. 20,000 years ago the earth was in an ice age. Yeah climate change.

      • That is a changing weather due to climate change (ie we have never recorded a temperature over 77° in March, there’s the prolonged drought in the Western United States, along with continuous problems due to 🔥’s).

  8. Since you asked for redesigns:

    Here ( is a video of a “Prison Town” within Tapped out. One advantage of videos is ability to show animation.

  9. Started lawn mowing season yesterday. Bought a new electric mower, so far very pleased. (

    Finished the event in most of my games, on the last tasks in a couple of others.

  10. It’s now 17:30 UK time and I’ve been trying to connect since early this morning. Keep getting Bart screen with ‘Failed to connect to servers’. Anyone else experiencing this?

  11. Late March freeze in the thumb of Michigan. 18 last night, supposed to go down to 14 tonight. Its 21 right now. My “pond” from all the rain has turned into a skating rink. Canal is still frozen over. All Temps in Fahrenheit.

    • Happy Sunday everyone!

      Interesting 🤔
      Tap on my event icon – hot dog mustard and bun – and am told that I have 115/175
      Tap on the next icon – do it – and am told that I have 114/175

      • There’s 2 currencies so it could count building taps in Part 2, the send on tasks just has earned by characters and you’ve got one from a building somewhere.
        I fought the Battle of the Timers and ended up with all the grease needed for parts 3, 4 and 5, so I just had the 4 hour send . . to do for each part !?! 😊

  12. It’s been a week since the last Addicts Live and I haven’t seen any mention about it. I am just curious about what the name of Safi’s “mystery” Las Vegas hotel is? Are you going to tell us?
