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? What about the winner of the Bracket Battle?

Enjoying some down time between events?

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? Any changes since school started up again? How’s the weather in your area?

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’ve noticed in the last few weeks that some of my buildings are missing. Has this happened to anyone else?

  2. Two things:
    1) I really like the buildings from this event, especially the ones that link with Monorail tracks.
    2) I’m gonna need EA to do another land expansion. The constant stream of new content is neat but I’m almost out of space.

  3. Will there be a showoff for Mirror Mayhem?

  4. Will be Glad to see another splash screen! The Mirror one is so old by now.

  5. I loved it when we could tap things like bunnies, secret service guys, even those creepy snakes, in our towns and the towns of our friends!

    • Oh, yes please. 😃 I’d forgotten all about that. While it’s fun to be able to see what my neighbors are up to And garnish some decorating ideas. It’s not as much fun. Also, what happened to the free doughnuts we used to get from visiting a neighbor?

  6. Can someone please remind me what the current hard item limit is? I’m worried I’m getting very close, and it’s at odds with my current mission to increase my bonus multiplier via Burns Mystery Boxes, as I’ve been trying to increase my IGC income, so I can buy gold pavement. (I just maxed out the 25M ones and now need 50M to make them.)

    • 16k IIRC – warns every 150 until you hit the limit ( again IIRC ).
      If it warns add 150 a pop until it’s a round number but beware of adding an extra 3k !!
      ( BTW – you mean 500M $$s, good job it isn’t the expensive ones yet !! )

        • Yes…I realized as I was writing my initial comment that I couldn’t remember the number of 0s offhand, but figured folks would understand what I meant. I may stop actively working on earning cash for tiles once I finish the ones at this level, but maybe not…it’s been nice having to change my gameplay a bit to work on something new like that after so many years of same-old-same-old.

      • Thanks! But can you clarify your second sentence? I’m not sure I understand what you’re talking about there…

        • Warns at 14,800 say, add 150’s to get 14,950, 15,100, 15,250, 15,400, 15,550, 15,700, 15,850 then 16,000 is the round number for the final hard limit.

          • No, that part I understood, but what’s that about the extra 3K?

            (And what happened to the WordPress sign-in?)

            • The next round number after the hard limit would be a further 20 x 150 if you kept adding ’em, but the warnings may start early enough it’s more than 20 x 150 to get the actual amount. It’s somewhere around 15 – 16k IIRC but not sure and it’s in the hard-coded update bit not the data files so it’s not something I could look up.

            • WP sign in ?? – I’m always logged in so not seen any issue or change

              • It used to allow me to always stay signed in, but that changed for me ages ago. For the past long while, I’ve had to input my email address each time, then click on the WordPress symbol and okay the (never seen) popup (popunder?). It would then fill in my name and allow me to submit my comment. Today, it all looks different…no WP symbol. (I think there may have been a symbol for another option, too, before, but all symbols address gone.) Now I have to input both my email address and name each time I want to comment. The email options also changed from radio buttons to switches (which I don’t care about, but am just mentioning as another change).


  7. I would love for this game to be expanded and for us to have the possibility, with one click, to go from Springfield to New New York (Futurama) and Dreamland (Disenchantment) within this game. Do you agree? Would it be possible for EA Sports to do this?

    • EA don’t do Futurama, that’s TinyCo – doubt they’d work together.

      • And if they were going to do that, it would make more sense to go between Springfield and New Quahog…at least they’re in the same era! (Although, given the friendly feud between the two shows, I guess that wouldn’t be likely, after all.)

        Speaking of which, in a match of wits between Maggie and Stewie, who do you think would win?

        • Maggie’s bright and deadly, but Stewie is Machiavellian …

          Why can I send Homer for a burger but I never get any for me, and it doesn’t mow my lawn or book me a holiday when I play TSTO – c’mon, it won’t even let me use my phone to call someone as I tap … !!

    • The Futurama game shut down last April. Honestly, I’m surprised it lasted for as long as it did. The game hadn’t had any actual development for years.

  8. I finally finished the New Frontier. I wasn’t using g any donuts so it took forever. Is this late in the game or are others still working on it?

  9. Hey! I’ve been investigating the timings of events and I speculate in the upcoming 12 days we will get a new event. This will be the event before the tree house of horror event which is the Halloween event. I believe it could be based on the simpsonsland episode where the simpsons are robots in a theme park. It would add robotic characters and cool buildings and stuff. This is all speculation and my hope because it’s an awesome episode and would follow on the mirror event.

    • There’s usually an update on the Tuesday following the Wednesday an event ends for something to start that next Wednesday, but that works out to 54 weeks so twice a year there’s no week off.
      Of course EA could change things up, but it’s been like that for a while now.
      Expect an Update Alert in a couple of days.

    • Shattered Dreams Mystery Box ends in 2d 18hr as of this post. I suspect a new event then.

  10. Have been thinking

    We are approaching the time that is traditionally tree house of horrow / Halloween event time.

    Which has me pondering.

    Will there be an event before Halloween?
    Will there even be a Halloween event this year?
    If there is a Halloween event when will it arrive and how many events in it?
    Is tsto included in the writers / actors strike? So while there may still be updated will they have to come to an end shortly?

    Know these are hypothetical questions not expecting answers just thinking out loud

  11. cant wait for halloween update — would love for them to go back to the entire town being dark and being able to drop ghosts in your friends towns, i havent had a reason to visit a friend in years.
