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?

Did you catch Graham’s new rundown about the latest mini event? Enjoying the new mini event, A Hard Plays Night?

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? Excited for the new NFL season? What about the final week of the MLB regular season? How’s your team doing?

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. hello! I’m level 447, I need help…I don’t have lands, I already bought all the ones I could buy with fake money…how do I get the free land tokens without paying real money? Or how can I extend my land? Thank you!!

    • You can only reliably get Land Tokens with the Golden Goose Realty, but that doesn’t show up often and has recently been bundled in a Mystery Box when it does make a rare appearance.

      Have you opened up all the land on the other side of the mountains ??
      Springfield Heights nearer the Ocean and above that the New Frontier.
      That’s about 210 land tiles worth IIRC not counting beach and ocean, and you can earn the currencies for those with what the game gives you.

      • thanks for the reply! I bought all the springfield heights lands, the beach and the new world lands 🙁 I don’t have lands for the new update.

        • There’s a chance it’ll be in the Black Friday boxes in a few weeks, but for now you’ll have to think about storing or redesigning to make room. Sorry.

  2. When is the new update?

    • See Safi’s comment on here from a couple of days ago – it’s a good clue to check the Shattered Dreams timer …

    • Right?! When is treehouse of horror 34 event coming? I’ve been saving up donuts forever. The last mini event sucked.

  3. Are there secret donuts when tapping in friends towns? I know some donuts usually pop up sometimes when you tap one of your three taps, but are there more? Like secret objects that if tapped produce a donut and don’t count as one of the 3 taps. I have for sure gotten 1 donut that way.

    • Nothing I know of, except for the small chance after you get the FP prizes it might surprise you – but those are part of the 3 tap a day bit

    • I don’t think so…how did you get the one you “for sure” got that way?

      • I went to do a round of my friends neighborhoods and right when one loaded I accidentally hit the screen and a single donut popped up, I thought I saw burns’ big gold pile near where it came up. I double checked and I still had 3 taps left in that same neighborhood.

        • Try tapping that Money Mountain again and see – good luck
          ( AFIK it won’t work, but … )

          • I did, nothing. Then I tried some other stuff, the money tree, the casinos, the billionaire have, basically anything that is money themed, nothing. I’m still holding out hope there is a secret stash.

            • I’d love to think you’re right, but I think that first accidental tap took one of the three and you saw the reward before the counter caught up.

              Keep trying, be nice to be wrong on this.

  4. A question for Alissa, Safi, Graham and/or anyone posting here with insight/knowledge about the video gaming industry.

    I just saw this (linked) article from Variety which says “Members of the actors’ union voted to authorize a strike against 10 major video game companies, Variety reports.”
    EA is specifically named in the article.

    How will this most likely impact TSTO players? I know that much of our game’s content is created long before it launches for us, but the SAG/AFTRA strike seems to be going nowhere fast in terms of negotiations, unlike the WGA. Apparently WGA is pleased with the latest negotiation results this week.

    Thanks for any insightful feedback!

    • Reading that it’s likely character actors in games getting annoyed at AI doing their work and not going to affect TSTO unless the Studio can’t add voice clips for a while – but I don’t think even that’d happen.

      I have popped the link up to ask the EA Community team what effect it may have, but they’ll cover all EA titles not just TSTO

    • The feeling is it’s likely only to impact new games in development that may be aiming to release in the next 6 months or so

  5. Decided to do 10 random songs on shuffle as not done it in ages.
    1. Dance macabre- ghost
    2. The eclipse -battle beast
    3. Ten tonne skeleton- Royal blood
    4. Welcome to the show – alice cooper
    5. Bella donna- beast in black
    6. Fire & forgive – powerwolf
    7. The writing on the wall – iron maiden
    8. Thunder – imagine dragons
    9. When the sun goes down – arctic monkeys
    10. Fields of verdun – sabaton

  6. It’s been months and I still don’t have a fix for the tarot reader task. It’s still sitting in my task list.

    any ideas?

  7. Any word on the Halloween update 👀. Lol

  8. Thank you Graham. Storing and going to Friends seemed to do the trick. You’re a gem 👍🏻

  9. I’m very disappointed that the hay bales take up a blank space on each side, so you can’t snug them up together! I would have bought tons of them if I could have used them kind of like fences, but, as they are now, they’re only good for scattering around for decoration. 🙁

  10. My sky finger no longer clears everything. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    • If you get the Bart Screen or pop to the Friends Towns bit before it completes it stops collecting.

      If that’s not the case store it, head to the Friends Towns bit and back and then place it again.

      That’ll reset the timer, so maybe see what happens next time first rather than have to wait for longer for it to be ready again.

      • Wait – so I can use Sky Finger to colect multiple times a day by storing and re-placing it?!? That would be awesome!

        • No, you have to wait 24 hours after you put it back, or throw donuts at it.

          Storing anything resets the timer to the full time before payout / use – like store a blue house and it won’t pay anything until 8 hours after you put it back out even if there was only a few minutes to go when you stored it.
