The patch notes for the first Firemonkeys Sims Mobile update are here, these explain what is happening in the Quality of Life Update that is released on the 6th June.
The link to the post is here but you can also read it below with a few of my thoughts added:
You’ve asked, Sims Mobile fans, and we have heard you! Our Quality Of Life Update goes live today [6th June] – YAY! Everyone on The Sims Mobile team here at Firemonkeys Studio was absolutely thrilled to hear how excited you all were to get this one in your hands!
[I am beyond excited for this one!!]
Here are the full patch notes of the changes we have made:
Wumples, the sassiest Sim in the land, has arrived in town with all-new special quests. [Wumples will be dropping in from The Sims Freeplay very soon to see what all the fuss is about in The Sims Mobile!] Each quest will come with new and exciting prizes, and prizes earned from these quests will unlock multiples of that item – which means you can purchase extra copies of the item for your Sims’ homes.
[I am really glad that we will be able to purchase more of these items rather than just unlocking one of them, you really cannot decorate with only one of some items!]
Brand-new Storage Categories allow you to browse everything you own with ease! We’ve added sorting categories to Storage, which means items will be much easier to find, and recently used or earned items will appear in a special ‘recent’ category!
[I cannot wait to build now! You will be able to see the last 20 items you have unlocked in this tab]
New quest for 3rd Sim slot unlock
Expand your Sim family by adding a third Sim to your posse! You now have an extra chance to unlock your third Sim with the new quest “Roommate Race”. Complete the quest and unlock the third Sim slot. The quest is available at player level 13.
[Find my post with all the steps for the Roommate Race Quest here! I already have the third sim slot on my main game but I will create a video once I complete this quest on my second game]
Surprising choices adjustments
We made some adjustments to Surprising Choices to ensure there’s always a neutral option available, and removed some of the outcomes that have drawbacks.
[I really hate the surprising choices so this is good news, it will be great to see some neutral options so we can just close it and get on with the game]
We made a variety of tuning adjustments to the LlamaZoom system to make it more enjoyable:
- The amount of tasks required by LlamaZoom has been reduced for high level players. This change affects players from approximately level 35 and up – with level 50 players receiving the largest reduction
- The effort required to complete a LlamaZoom is now less variable. Previously each LlamaZoom could differ quite largely in effort required – they are now more consistent and predictable
- Any stack of tasks will now always begin with a task that asks for events to be complete (say that five times fast!). This is to help those of you who enjoy preparing for LlamaZoom by having Sims do events before Emily arrives
- Rewards have been rebalanced – including extra Simoleons upon completion. The rewards have been increased overall.
Hobby and Relationship rewards
The amount of Simoleons awarded from Hobbies and Relationships has been increased. The rewards are more on-par with Career rewards now.
[It is great that the rewards are finally going to be similar to what you get from careers]
Event Duration Surfacing
Events now clearly showcase the exact duration that they will take to complete. Now you can plan your Sims’ routine more easily.
[I believe this means that we will be able to see a timer for events now but I am not really sure!]
Create-a-Sim variant pricing
Clothes and other items within Create-a-Sim have had their variants re-priced. All variants of an item will now share the same price, rather than varying from each other.
[This does make a lot of sense, why were they different prices for the same item just in a different colour?]
Photography and Influencer [Internet Icon] Quests
These two quests have been added to the level progression. You now have the opportunity to play the Photography quest once you reach level 8, and the Internet Icon quest when you reach level 15. These quests will trigger retroactively for those of you who are already above these levels
[I am planning on creating posts and videos for these as soon as possible, I never received the photography quest as I brought the heirloom before the quest was included in the game so I will be completing both of these on my second game when I get the chance- I know I have an internet icon post but it is really out of date!]
Some quests are now structured in Chapters
- The first chapter begins unlocked
- Each day a new chapter will become unlocked
- Chapters will continue to unlock, even if you haven’t finished the previous one
- The goal is to give players a chance to take a break and not need to go “full speed” from day one until the end of the quest
[So if you are behind then you won’t have to wait, you will go straight onto the next chapter once the previous chapter is complete. The Roommate Race is a good example of this, read my quest post here to see how chapters work]
The maximum number of heirloom shelves has been increased from 3 to 6
[I don’t think there needs to be a limit at all but at least this is progress!]
Aaaaaaand that’s a wrap on this update! Download it now! ❤
Until next time, enjoy Simmers!
You will be able to update your game from 2am BST on the 6th June
