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 with a brand new episode tonight. Excited?

Christmas has hit our pocket towns with Act 3 launching last week. Have you seen the Christmas spoiler video? Looking forward to the event?

Did you get the Christmas special item?

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?

It’s New Years Day today? Any plans for 2023?

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 haven’t been able to get on for a few days. I’m getting an error message when I enter the email code. Any ideas?

    • Head to your EA account and –

      Check your email is verified
      Check the rest of your info is correct
      Change your password. You can change to the one you already use but you must go through the steps
      Don’t forget to hit Update to save the changes

      https://myaccount.ea.com/cp-ui/aboutme/index

      Optional but recommended –
      If you haven’t already add a second email for account recovery in case you lose access to your main email
      Add a phone number. You can tap Phone at log in and use that number to get codes via SMS

      • Hi, I’ve done everything you’ve suggested here. However, it won’t let me add my phone number. And I still can’t get on. Is there an account recovery person here?

        • This site is not related to EA. This is a fan site run by folks who don’t work for EA in any way. You’d need to contact EA directly for support. However, if you search this site (using the Search option in the menu near the top of this page), you can find an old article about how to contact EA. I recommend using the phone option and waiting until during a weekday, when you’re a bit more likely to get a rep from the US (or Ireland?), who tend to be better at being able to help.

        • If it let you change your password it should let you change or add the phone number.
          I’ll be honest I’ve not done it, but I use a laptop to check emails and that along with the phone and the tablet for my 2 games are always right by me.

          You might need to use the international version of the phone number, a + followed by the country code replacing the 0 at the start.
          For example the country code for the UK is 44 and mobiles here always start 07… so a UK number would become +447…

  2. Did anyone else have all of the Christmas Mystery Box items? I got two items I didn’t have and then nothing happened when I reached the next two mystery box tokens. I was hoping for donuts. Anyone else?

    • Everyone else. The donuts for tokens has not been working throughout the event.

      • I’m stuck with a quest to spend a golden token for donuts but can’t find any way to do it and clear the task.

        • That’s an optional task that requires you to spend real world money to purchase a donut package that comes with a golden token. The task will go away at the end of the event.

  3. Is anyone able to confirm if there are any character tasks for the Simpsons’ Skating Rink? 🤔

  4. What is/was the ‘christmas special item’? I haven’t seen anything and I did log in on christmas day

  5. I amost sixty years old and i love the game but my eyes hurt so much from the snow !

  6. How do I find my Golden Token to spend?

  7. When the game prompts you to spend a gold token on donuts, what are you being asked to do? When I click on the link, I’m just taken to the spot where you buy donuts with cash.

    • I assume if you have a token there will be an option to exchange it for 12 donuts. I just keep my keep my tokens since I “donut farm”.

      • I’ve got tokens received as rewards but there’s no option for spending them on donuts when I click the prompt.

    • Did you buy donuts to receive the token ?

      • I received the token as part of the prize track. I have one for each of the first 3 event quest lines. I assume the token was meant for a box that had inventory from past events. But I already have everything so perhaps I’m supposed to exchange the token for donuts? But if that’s the case, it’s not working

        • 2 different issues –
          Trade Golden Tokens for Donuts quest left over from Thanksgiving 2022
          Xmas 2022 token exchange option missing.
          – both reported, waiting on a fix

          • Do I need to submit a ticket to EA for this or will it automatically be completed? Ty for your response!

            • I’m hopeful that . . .

            • I’m hopeful that . . .

              The trade for the xmas tokens will show when the event ends, doubt it’ll be patched now.

              The Thanskgiving task will go at the next update, but it’s easy, for me at least, to just ignore it.

              No harm trying with a ticket, but I don’t think the support staff at EA Help can do any more than flag it to the devs again

              ( that one worked, might be a mess up above with just the first line unless someone kindly deletes it for me – ta if you did 😊)

  8. Tappy New Year everyone!

  9. Happy New Year to all the Addicts.
    All the best in the New Year to Alissa and Safi and for all their hard work in 2022.

  10. Happy New Year everyone!

    Anyone notice that the short, little Tourist character no longer earns premium currency/XP and the other two still do?

    I’m also still tapping dinosaurs in my B game. Weird. Those tapables were so long ago.
