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 is off for the summer. But did you catch the 750th episode. Did you catch the episode reminder?

The newest Act of Fore! hit our games last week. Did you check out Graham’s breakdown? How are you progressing? Ready for Act 4 to start this week?

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? July is already here. Did you celebrate Canada Day on July 1st? Will you be celebrating 4th of July this week? Any summer vacations plans?

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. Just started again from scratch after a year or two away.
    Two events in and neither have interested me enough to participate in them. The prizes aren’t something I’d waste space on either. What happened to events that didn’t just involve dull grind? Roll on Halloween and Xmas.

  2. So I bought 4 items from the mystery box a couple of weeks ago and the items disappeared – was planning on clearing it out – the only thing I remember is that I had Satans anvil as I put it next to mt carlmore and I logged in again and it’s gone – as well as the other 3 items I got that day (which I can’t remember they weren’t great but the percentage chance per item went down quite a bit in the box. Has anyone else had this problem? I got in contact with EA when it happened and after 2 weeks the best they have come up with is to send a bug report!! Feels unfair when £15 of donuts has effectively disappeared and honestly it’s really put me off playing and got me really behind in the event as a result – what are your thoughts? Can you help get some enthusiasm back in the game for me???

    • Sounds like it’s gone to Store instead of Place, or they are there but you’re on a Samsung S22.
      Check your inventory carefully, not a sub section but everything and remember older items can be right near the far end.

      TIP: If you find one item tap the X to close inventory and then reopen it. That way it’ll start from there next time and after you place the item rather than going back to the beginning.

      • Nope the items are back in the mystery box – EA have not helped either – had an open case for 3 weeks and just ask basic questions and suggestions – like 3 weeks in and now they say go to chat – I follow their steps and there is only a contact via email – whcih I’ve been doing for 3 weeks and gotten nowhere – honestly at my wits end now – lost all enthusiasm to play and haven’t completed the event – the support staff have been useless – I’ve basically had 280 donuts dissappear which is £15 – I’ve lost enthusiasm to play and not completed this event as a result – 3 weeks countless back and forth and no one from EA Has even looked into it – so sad that the customer service is so poor and it’s basically made me give up tapping

  3. Anyone have an update on the graphical glitches on the Samsung phones?

    • That’s what I came to find out too. It really becomes quite tiring when trying to place the new items because we have to move the item around until we find a spot. Plus we don’t even know how it’ll look there since the entire area can show up as being empty.

      • It’s a bit of an educated guess, but check Google Play late Tuesday and keep your fingers crossed. First anyone will know of a fix is when an S22 player says yay it’s sorted …

  4. Has anyone received updates on the graphical glitches on Samsung phones? It’s makes placing anything in my town really tedious. It’s probably not a huge concern to them, being such a specific glitch, but I’m really hoping they patch it soon.

  5. My opine at this time is about poutine. If anyone doesn’t know this delight, it is normally just French fries with cheese curds covered in gravy. Yummy! My issue is with pronunciation… Northern eyesight of Edmunston, New Brunswick, Canada.., where poutine is actually offered as a side dish at their KFC, “poulet kentuck et frit”..or something, where poutine is a normal side dish like..ployes. I love cooking..and cooking shows..yet this delicious food is always pronounced “poo teen”..or “pu teen”. I want people to know that the pronunciation around here is simple…you don’t even need to “parle francais”…or speak French. The correct pronunciation sounds exactly like “puts in”..that simple people…it’s not “poo teen”’s pronounced exactly like “puts in”..anyway…Happy 4th! I can’t wait for burgers, dogs, with sides of beans, ployes…and “puts in”…

    • Why “puts in” and not “put in”? Either way, yum! I had my first poutine from a little roadside place on a drive back into the US from my trip to Quebec City.

      • The French language around here is a little different, but that’s what the word sounds like when pronounced correctly in francais..”putsin. Or, “puts in”. People not from around here are often perplexed when listening to some people talk around here..especially the older generations..half the sentence being spoken is English words..the other half is French. “I don’t care for doing a grande menage “..not sure of the correct spelling, but the sentence means I don’t care to do a big cleaning, or spring cleaning…lol

        • J’etudie le français maintenant (et encore…j’ai edtudié ça quand j’etatit jeune, à l’école), mais c’est le français de la France, pas du Canada. Je ne pense pas que on entend un “s” dans “poutine” en le français Parisienne, mais je n’est pas sur.

          (Please excuse any mangled French above…I tried writing this without the help of Google Translate or anything!)

  6. Have to rant here. I play other games and I’m never asked to log on again. I’m so tired of EA asking me for my age (I always say 99 lol!) and asking for a code which they send via text or e-mail. What a pain in the patootey.

  7. I put a Springfieldian in mortal danger. Feel free to add me so you can set fire to a brave and scared soul!

  8. Hiii, im new, I found this page and i love it. there is one scene per week?

    • check these –
      Stuff in the Walkthroughs are always in-game and when you finish one set of jobs and reach the needed level the next bit starts and then there’s events that show up for a short time only like the one in the recent posts here. For a while now they’ve either been 1 part for 2 weeks or 4 parts for 9 days each so basically 5 weeks like this one

    It happens at times. I usually try again in 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, etc.

    • If it’s just that the donut on the splash-screen is spinning longer than usual give it a minute or three then head to recent apps and back to trigger it re-loading should help, or quit and re-start it.

      Picture an invisible Bart Screen waiting for you to hit a Retry button that isn’t there … and it won’t do anything until you do !!

  10. Is anyone having trouble opening the app? It gets to the second page where we log in, the donut spins for longer than normal and then closes. I’ve deleted the app, restarted my iPad and logged in three times. Been going on for three days.

    • Giving your EA account a nudge might help, but that usually applies if you can’t log in / keep getting an invalid code message.
      For anything else someone on here using an iPad might be best to answer but I’d think about clearing cache / junk files if you know how.
      Also check the Date and Time are right for your time-zone and don’t use a VPN when trying to tap

      For the EA account, head there and –
      Check your email is verified
      Check your other info is correct and up-to-date
      Head to the Security bit and change your password. Doesn’t matter if the new one is the same as the old one, going through the steps helps.
      You could perhaps add a Phone Number. That can help with account recovery if you lose access to your email and if you tap Phone at log-in you can enter the registered number to get codes via SMS.

      Don’t forget to hit Update to save the changes !!
