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 or current Tapped Out event) 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:

Simpsons are back tonight with a brand new episode!  What do you think will happen?

Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is here. What are your thoughts on this year’s Thanksgiving event? What do you think we’ll see 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)

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?

Have you been watching the FIFA Football World Cup? Did you see the Canada versus Belgium game? Canada played so well, yet lost 1-0 versus the best goalie in the world 🙁 . What team are you rooting for? What match are you looking forward to seeing?

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 am stuck on this Father Ben task Exercise a Demon. How do I get past it?

  2. Let’s hear about Christmas!!! What is upcoming? Please give us some more info of plans ! 🤶🏻

    • Alissa and I will try to get together this weekend to review the spoiler packet and have the info ready to share with you when we can.

  3. I still have the “bug” related to Princess Opal in Part 3 of Moving In Hex-Filled Circles. I saw that EA suggested a fix and have tried everything, but I cannot get the yellow quest. Any suggestions?

    • I went and tried to break it in one of my towns to see what was wrong and try to find a work-round – and ended up stuck too !!
      I’ve passed info on how I broke it and what I think caused it to get stuck through AHQ to the Studio.
      All anyone can do is wait for them to issue a patch or fix for it, which I hope will be in with the Christmas update early next week.

  4. Hello. I was wondering about 2 things.

    First, is there any possibility of transferring in-game cash to another player? I have billions that I’ll never spend and would like to impart some to my wife.

    And then, I have a town that I’ve had for many years. I have countless buildings and decorations and somewhere in the 450-500 character range, I think. It’s a huge, embarrassing, stressful mess in there and I don’t have the bandwidth or device to really get it all back together. Is there a forum where I could find someone to outsource this project to? T.I.A.

    • No, you can’t transfer in-game cash.

    • Not sure what you mean by “get it all back together.” Do you mean you’re looking for someone to design your town for you? I don’t think giving a stranger your EA login credentials is a great idea (and probably violates the Terms of Service). If you want, though, you can “blow up” your town, which will put everything except for the Simpsons house and the Krustyland entrance (if you have the latter placed in your town) into your storage. You can then start taking stuff out and design your town at your leisure. The less you have placed in your town, the less bandwidth you need (if you’re talking about device/wi-fi bandwidth, not personal “bandwidth”). Also, if your device is struggling, the first thing to do is disconnect a piece of monorail track, so it won’t run. That chews up more processing power than some devices can handle.

      Safi answered your first question….unfortunately, not only can’t you gift cash or donuts to someone else, you can’t gift items, either. Otherwise, I’d happily offer up things like, maybe, 350 of the around 450 bonsai plants I have (for example) to whoever wanted some!

      • I’ve mothballed thousands of Jet Engine Bikes, Newsvans and Billboards I’d gladly gift it it could be done 😊

        • Since those up my bonus multiplier, I have zillions of those (and other bonus multiplier items) hidden behind buildings and such. But, although I recently got another warning, I don’t seem to have quite hit my item limit cap yet.

      • Thanks so much for your reply! So, a few years ago, I did blow up my town. Huge mistake. And at some point I just took everything out of storage in a fully random, chaotic way. And that’s how my town has remained since. So “getting all back together” definitely means someone redesigning my town for me – for a fee, I was imagining 🤷🏻‍♂️

        I understand what you’re saying about not sharing a login. Didn’t even think about TOS.

        I did mean personal bandwidth lol

        My device is okay, but I’ve only got a phone. No tablets or desktops. It’s just too small a screen to rebuild this mess.

        Thanks again for your time and help!


      As the song goes, let it go, let it go

  5. Any guesses as to what the Leftorium joke is?

    I asume is something inappropiate but I can’t for the life of me guess what it is

    (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, there’s a sidequest if you unlock the Leftorium by paying $$$ and it’s about Homer not wanting to get in trouble for telling “the joke”)

  6. I am happy that they mention thanksgiving in the game’s dialogue. Happy to start a new event. I didn’t get anything worth getting in the shattered dreams mystery box 📦. I had items from the dinosaur event. My game has the habit of giving me the Bart screen when I am in the middle of donut farming it is becoming more frequent that I have not been able to do it like I used to. Now I stick with 10 blood mobiles at a time. I purchased the marge’s car. Anyone planning to purchase the 50$ donut robot? I was thinking that tonight’s Simpsons episode was going to be about when Nelson and Lisa first met in childhood. Not that it involves the future. For the first time the Simpsons are on at 8:30 pm instead of 8:00 pm here at Southern California. I do prefer this new time since it comes right after bobs burger another of my favorite tv shows. Everyone enjoy the new week.

  7. I was not all that impressed with the Thanksgiving mini event as I already had a full football stadium in my town. Hopefully the Christmas event will be better.

    Hi there everyone. I’m from the Netherlands (Amsterdam) and I play tsto for several years now. I visit this site every month a few times, but never left a reply on this wonderful site. So this is my first message from me to you!!!

    I look forward to the Christmas update this year. I hope for a lot of bling bling and ugly fake Christmas stuff.

    Greetings from the Netherlands🇳🇱🇳🇱🇳🇱!

  9. Happy tapping all, anticipating Christmas even very soon, looking forward to the snow

    Would be good if ea introduced a costume bonus box or character box so we could get missed characters and costumes. The 😎
